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.

Yay for more women runners!

Wednesday, April 23rd, 2008

Yay for more women runners! I was glad to see the picture of the publisher of Inquirer Sunday on the front page of this morning’s Inquirer newspaper. She was running and carrying the torch during the 94KM relay run on Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway last Sunday. t always encourages and comforts me to see other women runners. I recall on the last Mizuno race I joined, I saw Sen. Pia Cayetano as we were running towards the finish line. I think she joined the 15k while I ran the 10k. Anyway, I thought this was a great picture but unfortunately, I can’t find a clearer and bigger picture to post here.

Looking at the main headline though is the alarming news that Meralco (electric company) increases their rates! Brings me back to my previous entry about biking or running to work. Maybe the newspaper is subliminally suggesting this.

P1800Last night, I stopped by the gas station and I told the guy to load up Php 1,800 worth of unleaded gas and this is what I saw on my gas meter!

Take a closer look…
