Joren's Birthday

I baked 2 cakes for him and 24 cupcakes. The yellow cake is my first fondant cake, its MMF. Joren had 2 classmates that came over, a cutey girl and his friend Austin. He was jumping for joy when he found out that his Lolo Rody gave him a bike. His Mamu gave him Lechon de Leche and his Papa prepared a Shabu-shabu. His uncle wawat and Ate May prepared chocolate fountain for him with marshmallows, wafer biscuits and sticko for dippings. I prepared spaghetti and Pancit malabon too with white puto. He was happy and doesn't want to go to sleep yet at 11pm, coz we were still singing that time, he told me it's his birthday.

My 5 day vacation

With so many things i wanted to do, i don't know where to start. Ironic isn't it? I have a book ive been wanting to read. Two printouts i woulda read long time ago. My mermaid crosstitch that i put out already on the my top drawer so i could make a few stitch here and there, btw i started doing that 3 years ago and i'm a few hundred stitches shy of finishing it. What else? oh i bought a Hugh Grant Dvd and i planned to watch all of it. And i have planned to have a date with my best friend Cherry again. And i've been wanting to do that creamcheese pie....urggghhhh what to do...what to do?
Hubby is asking to have a motorcycle ride with him to Quiapo...with all of these in mind, maybe going out with him is a better idea until i came up with what to do next.

These are the cakes i made for Daddy. I frosted the cake while cooking chicken macaroni soup. The Mango toppings :
1 Ripe Mango, scraped
2 tbsp of glucose ( to make the sauce sticky)

Pour everything in a non-stick pan in a low fire, mix until it boils.

Ice Cream Personality Test

Your Ice Cream Personality:

You like to think of yourself as a fairly modest person. And it's true that you don't talk yourself up... but you're also pretty happy with who you are.

You are incredibly cautious. You rather miss out on something than make a mistake. No one would ever call you wild... but they would call you responsible.

You are a somewhat open minded person, but deep down you're fairly conservative. You don't like trying new things very much. And if you do find something new you like, you stick with it.

You tend to have a one track mind. You prefer not to multitask.

You can be a big dramatic and over the top sometimes. You are bold in every way

A Visit to Fully Booked

I can literally live in a bookstore, that is if they allow me, it's haven for me, i know alot of people can relate. And when we went to Greenhills yesterday, i get to reminisce the feeling of being inside a bookstore again. (here i go again) with the kind of job that i have, i don't really have much time to go or even have time to stay there for a while. Anyways, i just found out that there is another series of books that people are going gah gah over, and which just tells that THAT'S how i am detached to the book world nowadays. Its the books by Stephenie Meyers, the vampire lovestory saga. I don't know why i kinda likevampire books or movies, something in them that makes me fascinated, except Anne Rice books, it gives me a chill from my insides, i mean i like vampires because of fascination but not to the point that i can already sense someone dark watching me hehehe well that's how good A. Rice is.
Anyways i already started to rearrange my book shelf for that 3 vampire books, and hopefully next payday my wallet will spare some money for me *starts doing the math*

A Cake for Flor

Flor just got home from the hospital about 2 days ago and it's her birthday today, so after coming from work i decided to make a chocolate cake for her. Coz i remember when i was making a chocolate cake with lots of marshmallows she really liked it, so i throw a bagful of marshmallows on her cake and i made another cake the same one just that i made it square , for my kids, i know that once Flor put her cake on the table my kids prolly will not have enough to eat. So the square one is solely for them.

Computer Crashed!!!

I was JUST about to email all the powerpoint files i made about cupcakes & cake designing, just that i got lazy and watched dvd instead. The day after that my pc crashed and i can hear that little voice inside my head, who likes to blame me all the time, saying ' told you so'. I think thats her favorite line.
So without a pc for a few days is not my worry really, but its more of like i can't really make my son NOT to download games from the net, it's becoming habitual already, that i have to think of another strategy, thats my college son, he seems to be getting a little selfish lately, not considering how others will be affected with his actions. *breathes deeply*.
He was able to retrieve my files tho, so im happy with it. And he helped his uncle to reformat the pc, i hope he learns this time.

The Kobey Bryant Shoes Collection

This is hubby showing off the new Kobey rubber shoes that he wore for the 2008 Olympics games in Beijing. This particular collection has a number 10 imprinted on the side, Kobey's jersey number for the 2008 Dream Team.
The last Kobey Shoes that he has is still inside the box, untouched.. i think this is the one they call Black Mamba. Not to mention he has the same shoe with a different color. And he has an eye for that new shoe again. .
His first Kobey shoe was bought from Singapore i dunno what it's called but it looked like a robot with totally blackshiny skin and no strings at all.
Don't make me start telling his Kobey's jersey collection.

Weird Memory

I am VERY VERY forgetful, like turned-the-cabinet-inside-&-out-looking-for-keys-just-to-find-out-its-inside-my-pocket, forgetful. Sometimes i hide my wallet to places i can't remember that i end up buying a new one. Or money that i save for emergencies, i would put it inside somewhere that nobody will ever find, EVEN me. BUT it boggles my mind why there are certain dates that i cannot forget, dates like one of my highschool best friend's bday, which is Sept.
6, her name is Flordeliza,, it's like whenever that day comes im always wishing that if only theres a way to communicate with her.
And the Heavens heard me that Flordeliza got my number and exchange txts msgs since early this year and when Sept 6 came i greeted her early morning. She said that she was SO suprised and happy that i remembered her birthday, we haven't seen each other since after highschool and that was 20 yrs ago and i can't even remember what her last name was, and there i was greeting her on her birthday.
I made a special person of my highschool life happy and after 2o yrs of remembering her every Sept 6 i am able to greet her Happy Birthday finally.

Carrot Cake

Last Bazaar i have request for a mango cake and carrot cake, thats why i made a carrot cake the other day, and i was suprise to find out that my kids actually love it. If i can still remember the last time i bake one was last New Year, uhmmm and at that time they didn't even want to touch it, i wonder is it because we have like 3 cakes on the table that time or they really didn't knew that it was a carrot cake? Creamcheese frosting is a knock- out and i drizzle a generous amount of melted white chocolate on top, so prolly that gave it a kick to them. Nevertheless, i am again a happy mother :)

Logo sticker

i talked with my sister's hubby early this afternoon and since he is very good at doing ads i asked him if he can make me a logo for my pastries, SO he is really very good at that and he ask me about putting up things that i want to be in logo, so its 4 am and i'm here browsing.

cookie cut outs II

It was a bit soft for cutting through the cookie dough was just good enough to leave a mark on the dough and i used a knife to really remove the shaped cookies. So im going to think of more harder material to use.

Cookie Cut Outs

I made my own cookie cutouts, since here in the Phils, you don't really have a wide range of shapes to choose when it comes to cookie cutters, i don't want to order online too. So i decided to make my own original designs, i just hope that it will be hard enuff to cut a dough hehe, well i'll find out tomorrow. I'm set to do the cookie dough tonight and ill chill them overnight and will start cutting tomorrow. If it ends well i'm going to do more designs. Oh im sure you'll be asking what the heck is that shape, well it an obvious heart and butterfly, the other one is a flower, it's not a cloud hehehe
