Larcy's Cupcakery Café

Cupcakes have definitely took the Philippines by storm. In the past few years, there have been a boom of cupcake café restaurants all over the country. Almost every restaurants have started offering cupcakes from their dessert menu which have surely delighted each and everyone's sweet tooth.

Working in The Fort area of Taguig City has given me an edge into trying different kinds of desserts. I must say, Cupcakes by Sonja's paved way for me to incessantly consume cupcakes whenever and wherever. I am just a girl who is trying to live her life to the fullest. And I mean it by eating as much cupcakes as I can. Hello, who would say no to cupcakes? No one!

 It is known to us that the northern part of Metro Manila presents us with more variety of food rather than in the South so it has been quite a dilemma for us living in the South on where to buy heavenly tasting cupcakes. Unless of course, we make an effort to at least visit The Fort, which is only 20 minutes from our home but then, we'll have to pay an exorbitant amount for the toll fee. So it has been our routine to stock up on cupcakes by Friday to devour on weekends.

God may have heard the quandary that the South people have been experiencing that He has answered our plea through establishing a new cupcakery café last December 8, 2012: The Larcy's Cupcakery Café owned by Larcy and Gatchi Gatchalian.

Le Petit Chéri

Le Petit Chéri is a French café-restaurant that gives every person the same cozy atmosphere that one gets while in France. It is located in the Molito Lifestyle Complex across Alabang Town Center. The restaurant is owned by Edna and Henry Cureg whose passion for the French cuisine has paved way for them to open this place.

As I enter the restaurant, I immediately noticed its interior. For a small restaurant, it's rare to see a staircase as beautiful as what can be seen in Le Petit ChériThe tables on the first floor are perfectly aligned which gives a good view from the top. What makes Le Petit Chéri different from other French restaurants is its interior design. Underneath the stairscase, you can see their Paris memorabilia which are now for sale! The walls look like art galleries that perfectly resemble those in France. Another good thing about this restaurant is that it has two mini library collection. Isn't it an adept combination of a hang-out place? Enjoying the French atmosphere through eating and reading books at the same time.

Maximum Consumption

Yesterday, Paula and I met up in Bonifacio High Street to "formally" introduce each other, talk about VCF and everything under the sun, and EAT. I have known Paula since we were in college but we've never really gotten the chance to talk to each other back then. But as God has planned it, a certain mishap has led to a new found great friend! So when I got home, I checked on her Instagram and geez, look at what my eyes are feasting! Almost all of her photos contain FOOD! She definitely has this great passion for food and she enjoys eating without ever getting fat! Haha!

Anyway, these are some of the photos that are making me famish! I categorized them base on where I think they fit.

The End Where I Begin

To be honest, I don’t know what I should be typing for this entry or why am I even making one. But one thing is certain; I have to express my feelings through writing.

Have you ever felt it? Butterflies that flutter in your stomach, lack of sleep only to wait for a text message, and suddenly smiling for no apparent reason? Well, I did. And these are just some of the things that paved way for me to fall in love.

Yes, I have been in love. I have felt that tremendous feeling of being treated as someone special and likewise. However, with love comes pain. It is inevitable. And with that fact, it should already be obvious that I have been hurt, too.

Three days ago, it was suppose to be the first anniversary of my then boyfriend. Except that things have changed for the both of us. We never made it on our first anniversary as a couple. It hurts, right? I’d like to believe that most couples would want their relationship to last forever but I did not get my fair share of a happy ending. Not now… not with him. I used to think that once I enter a relationship, I want it to be my first and last one but it definitely didn’t stay true with me. You see, that guy and I broke up a couple of months ago. At first, I was perfectly dealing well with the break-up but just as the day of the anniversary is coming nearer, I’m starting to feel the sadness that it has caused on me. They say grief occurs in five stages. First, there’s denial, followed by anger. Then bargaining, depression, and acceptance. But grief is a merciless master. Just when you think you’re free, you realize you never stood a chance. I have experienced all those five stage. And I must say, I was in denial for the longest time. Denying doesn’t mean that I cannot accept the truth that it was totally over BUT I think of it like the relationship itself never happened. Everything about the two of us was inexistent. Yes, I got angry and depressed, too, but only for a short time. Believe it or not, I never cried the months following the break-up, all because I was too strong (and like what I’ve said, in denial) to feel that burning desire of crying. But I know that one day, I will eventually cry. And I did. I cried because it has finally dawn on me. I am forced to face the truth. I now have to accept it.
