summer time cut

Saturday, June 14th, 2008

It’s summer time! I decided to bring Koffee for a neat hair/fur cut. He seemed really tired when I picked him up from the pet shop - I think he isn’t used to other people giving him a bath and being blow dried by those industrial strength driers. Poor guy. Anyway, here’s the finished product!  :)

Doesn’t he look cute?

I was taking too many pics of him…

Happy Independence day!

Thursday, June 12th, 2008

So many people and countries had contributed to the Independence of the Philippines. I don’t want to sound corny, but let’s do our part in building our nation in whatever way we can. Live honestly. Be active and support programs in the community. Continue to be hospitable to visitors to the country. I’m sure you can think of some more ideas!
I went to the American Cemetery at Fort Bonifacio the other day, this is a memorial for those American soldiers who fought along side with Filipinoes against the Japanese occupying the Philippines at that time. I thought that this would be a good time to share those pictures.

On the walls, you can see the name, rank and place of origin of the soldiers.

The Cake Club

Wednesday, June 11th, 2008


I’ve always wondered about that little stall in front of Healthy Options and beside National Bookstore at Powerplant Mall in Makati. They have these delectable cakes on display. Last week, I found out it’s called The Cake Club with creations from Diamond Hotel. Thanks to Superbong, I got a taste of the goodies last week when they had an event to launch their store with a Dessert Buffet.

Here are some of the pictures of the Dessert Buffet. No drooling please.  :)


Diamond Hotel’s signature Supermoist Choco cake. My favorite! Sugar-free aloe jelly.

For more info, you may drop by Diamond Hotel along Roxas Boulevard,  or call Diamond Hotel’s Indulgence Office at 305-3000 or email indulgence [at] diamondhotel.com.

Independence day reminder for me

Tuesday, June 10th, 2008

On my way to work today, I saw that the lamp posts on the road were decorated with the Philippine flag. Seeing the flags against the clear blue sky, I realized that even though the inflation rate is predicted to be up to double figures this coming months, even though there were MMDAs at every corner preying on innocent drivers, even though there is poverty and beggars on the streets, it is still good to be living in a free country. Cliche, I know, but we can all still do something make this a better country.

Here’s a picture I took of the People Power monument along EDSA 2 nights ago. They were putting up the Philippine flag for June 12.
