We chanced upon a gourmet food fair at Gateway Activity Area and wandered around the area to see what will pique our interest. There’s a lot actually — like this flavored chocolates with personalized wrappers. I think it’s the perfect giveaway to any party.

But what excites me with these kinds of food fair is the chance to discover local food and desserts shop. In the end, we decided to take home MedChef‘s revel bar (3pcs for Php100). #supportlocal

Panghimagas is a Tagalog word for dessert. A term that is perfectly suited to call the sweet treats after a full delicious meal. To cap off our dining experience at St. Nicholas, we tried Civet coffee over these delightful sweets.

St. Nicholas Restaurant

I had the privilege to visit a newly-opened dining place in Mandaluyong’s which offers sweet and savory dishes at a very affordable price, St. Nicholas. It was a nice and complete dining experience as the chef and restaurateur, Nick Pelaez, shared the history behind his restaurant, the inspiration behind its eclectic ambiance and the delectable dishes served generously to us.

St. Nicholas started as a catering service for 10 years before they gave in to customers’ demand to make it into a restaurant which opened just last April which they can visit anytime they crave for good food, good service at a good rate.

At times when I am out of town aka out of my comfort zone, I enjoy the fun feeling of discovering a cool place — may it be a nice coffee shop, desserts place or a stretch-tummy-worthy restaurant. There are only a few places I’ve discovered yet in Cavite (B’s hometown), and the recent one is Malen’s. It’s ambiance was the reason it caught my attention. This place stood out amongst the other establishments because of it’s twinkling lights against the night sky. The place looks romantic.

When Holy Week was fast approaching, I kind of felt pressured and panicked that we didn’t have anything planned for that long weekend. I remembered exactly how I used to spend my Holy Week with my family — watching 7th Heaven marathon in bed or squishing ourselves to fit in the couch, or crying over the religious movies that are really meant to make you reflect on the life you are living. Not to mention following the popular Pinoy traditions that my mom follows — hanging Palm Sunday palaspas on the door, fasting and abstinence from meat and lavish meals, not showering on Good Friday, visiting a number of churches or Visita Iglesia, doing Stations of the cross, watching Senakulo and witnessing the Salubong ritual.Show Content ofT House /Read More
