Celebrating life with Cakes…

Celebrating life with Cakes…

“A great many things can be resolved with kindness, even more with laughter, but there are some things that just require cake.” – ~Leigh Standley~

It’s a few more weeks before Christmas. And a few more days before my mama’s birthday. And what better way to celebrate occasion such as these is by loads of sweetness from TLJ!

Ever since TLJ took over its’ own niche in the Desserts industry. An assembly of unique and delicately designed cakes that are simply beautiful and pleasing to the eyes, more so in any spread at home or outside. Their concept has taken the Filipinos by storm. Created I must assumed with passion since it entails all things to consider like taste, presentation, location and price.

Each one like a pastel-colored masterpiece with its’ curator who I can imagine is smiling while finishing up a well-done concoction in a whim. Each compliments the deep dark shade of chocolates. The base of most cakes I think are chocolates. As the saying goes: “No one outgrows the pleasure of chocolates”. Or for  my personal choice, it is mocha flavor first and foremost. =)

Check out those that I’ve tried.

My first!

Most people I’ve tried it with, loves it. Quite enamored by the dainty sweetness. It seems. So I am thinking now with excitement what variant we will get during the holidays. Unless, the other part of me would try these tempting choices:

There is also one Patisserie in Kapitolyo, “Lia’s Cakes in Season” which my soul buddy had me tried twice and I’m thinking if I can go all the way from Laguna just to get their Avocado cake for Christmas. Believe me, it tastes so heavenly.

Not to forget our all-time favorite, Mango bravo from Contis. I have to decide. I am sure they are getting orders as early as now.

-An only daughter. A mother of a 22 year old son. Passionate with so many things. A lover of life itself. First of which is to write. Then, sing (I specifically love the stage), read, cook, travel & take beautiful pictures (photography) and scrap booking, all of which are my own way of coping with life's challenges. Lately, I have been enjoying quilting and crafting with beaded fabrics. Friends usually associate me with the color violet. I love this color so much! However, I love pink, red, teal, orange, yellow as well! Coffee is my water and my happy food is cheesecake topped w/ blueberries, frozen yogurt, sansrival and cream puff. I mastered fettuccine carbonara because that is one of my favorite food along w/ broccoli with prawns and mushrooms. Of all the International cuisines, Japanese food is on top of my list. Secretly, I love "Stitch" - that grinning indigo pup. =) Seriously, I dream to become a philanthropist (starting off by providing shelter to street children in our country) and a famous author someday. I'm just waiting for God's time for my first book to be published.- It took me years to decide to blog, more so to write and have it out in the open. I started writing even as a child, I just keep them on file. It was my outlet. Approaching the year(s) they say where life begins, or If I may say, the sweeter life. It was a year full of emotions. As I lost both my parents already, the unfathomable sadness prompted me to pour them out in my writings and share them to the world, hoping it might lighten the heaviness of my heart. I live now with my son as a mother and as a daughter (as a friend and a sister), this has made me be ready to finally do what I am meant to do. Even If there's a lot that I wanted to do. This came first, like a first love that occupied a special place in my heart. It's a looong process, tiring, frustrating, exciting. The best part? is the happiness it brings. Even if things around seems all so wrong. It's like having my own place under the sun. My own safe and happy rainbowed world. At times, there's guilt as well, for I strongly believe, writing (like singing) is a talent God has gifted us. We ought to use it and maximize it, in our littlest way, share it to mankind, for His glory. I just had a few distractions over the years and to realize that it is never too late to be who we ought to be, I have this very strong feeling, now is the time. All my life, I have decided on things that made me happy, this is one of those. I may never be a winner of those best blogs that have been awarded to talented writers/ bloggers and I don't mind, there are strikes of being envious, but according to my father, there are two kinds of being envy. There's envy that is negative, it'll hamper you from doing good and there's an envy that makes you happy for others' success, or seeing yourself in their shoes, I think, the kind of envy in me, is the latter. Like celebrities who missed an Oscar, while the film was watched by the whole world, she/he did not mind, it's like knowing what counts best, and it's the capacity to share your talents to anyone who wants to receive it, without asking anything in return. Expressing what's in my heart and mind on every occasion (which happens to be daily) and being happy about it is like a prize already. Happy reading!(--,)
