Finally got to post some backlogs! 

One of the best comfort food for breakfast is none other than pancakes! It’s fun to make especially if you have the complete ingredients to indulge with. While there are many breakfast restos in the metro, we got to discover a unique one that kiddos and even adults would enjoy. 

To serve as the third part of my week-long birthday celeb, Friday of March 7th, right before our tribute party and amid the bipolar weather we went to Eastwood to try this restaurant that’s buzzing the breakfast aficionados — Slappy Cakes! (*slappycakesinBESBucketlistcrossedout!*)

Slappy Cakes originated in Portland, Oregon, USA is now one of the most popular breakfast spots that offers one-of-a-kind dining experience in a fun and interactive setting. Interactive in a sense that you can cook your own pancakes right at your table! Kids and kids-at-heart would enjoy experimenting with the different batter flavors and toppings that can be sweet or salty depending on an individual’s preferences.

 Here’s how you do it:

1. Choose a batter. They come in 8 oz. bottles/serving - Buttermilk, Whole Grain, Peanut Butter, Vegan, and Chocolate.

2. Pick some fixins - Sweet: chocolate chips, apples, mangoes, bananas, raisins, blueberries, coconut, and nutella. Savory: bacon, sausages, chorizos, smoked ham, cheddar cheese, salted duck egg, assorted mushrooms, spring onions, white cheese, cashew nuts, and peanuts.

3. Add some toppings - Honey, creamy peanut butter, lemon curd, apple sauce, chocolate sauce, spring onion sour cream, whipped cream, maple syrup, and cherry syrup.

4. Enjoy eating and slap that pancake *kidding*!

Twinny and I got to try the buttermilk batter, banana and nutella fixin witih overflowing and mouthwatering maple syrup and cherry syrup! IT WAS HEAVEN. Plus, I really enjoyed cooking my own pancake. It felt like I was just playing “lutu-lutuan” just like in my childhood years. Hah! If you’re not contented with the pancake alone though, you can try their other breakfast meal and for those who want some boost in the morning, they also offer cocktail drinks.

We left the resto that day with full stomachs that we didn’t eat lunch that day because pancake alone sufficed our cravings. Will definitely go back here with my family!

Under: indeed, words,
Someone asked me just now, “Does it get better?” and I wanted to share my response:

In a way. It gets easier. What once was such a fervent screaming in your head dies down into an echo and I think the goal is that that fades away once you immerse yourself into your life again.

It doesn’t go away all of a sudden and I sometimes feel like I’m still so stuck but time really does change things and you learn how to deal with the little bits of life you’ve avoided.

It reminds me of the quote by C.S. Lewis that says, “Isn’t it funny how day by day nothing changes but when you look back, everything is different…”

That’s how it was and still is for me. Now the calories in a cough drop don’t cause me to go into a hysterical fit but that doesn’t mean that I don’t have break downs about how scary real life is.

It’s not that I have no worries now it’s just that they’re different. They’re real life worries but I think that shows growth. So, to answer your question yes, yes it does get better.

Under: words,

Celebrated my best birthday ever (yes, forgive me I still have a G2B hangover #sorrynotsorry) with the best girls ever. Treated them to a pizza party and I so love how they made efforts to suprise me with their birthday greetings — videos, collages and long messages. It’s overwhelming. It made me love birthdays more! ♥

And so I’m already in the age where there will be adventures. Well, here’s to many unexpected escapades, unfaltering faith just like a kindergarten; being able to say everything that I want to the Father, love and lots of it for people, empathy and gratitude. To taking and appreciating things on a deeper level, but also on the surface, because some things are beautiful just as they are. Just as they come.

Here’s to 20.

Under: ahhh i love birthdays! ♥,

“the year of letting go, of understanding loss. grace. of the word ‘no’ and also being able to say ‘you are not kind’. the year of humanity/humility. when the whole world couldn’t get out of bed. everyone i’ve met this year, says the same thing: ‘you are so easy to be around, how do you do that?’ the year i broke open and dug out all the rot with own hands. the year i learnt small talk. and how to smile at strangers. the year i understood that i am my best when i reach out and ask ‘do you want to be my friend?’ the year of sugar, everywhere. softness. sweetness. honey, honey. the year of being alone, and learning how much i like it. the year of hugging people i don’t know, because i want to know them. the year i made peace and love, right here.”

Finally, the last entry for this blog segment! I am extremely glad to announce that I already finished the last setting (guidance & counseling) of my internship at La Consolacion College Manila (and we successfully defended our thesis)! Such a happy cookie myself is! Though partly, I am sad because I’ll definitely miss their campus that has a lot of retreat vibes on it and of course, our practicum supervisior, Ms. Ces who’s such a quirky and intelligent woman; also, the woman who expressed her belief in my potential since the very first day and the one pushed me to my limits just to help me improve. Man, do I love her cognitive behavior therapy approach! 

Ahh and of course, one thing’s for sure, I’ll miss eating lunch at one of their kubos.

Last few push and here we come graduation! :)
