red velvet love

...i attended a friend's birthday party last night and had some red velvet cupcakes for dessert (which i think is the perfect way to cap a meal after having so much of that roast beef LOL!)...i have been a fan of red velvet cupcakes for the longest time and whenever i get the chance to visit Sonja in Serendra, red velvet is definitely on top of the order list

...and since we're on the topic of red velvet cupcakes, the best that i had so far was the one from the famous Magnolia bakery in NYC


..the place was packed as usual but i didn't really mind the long line coz i know it will be worth it plus the cupcakes displayed in the rack looked so sinfully good that you just want to eat them all and just forget the fact that they can do so much damage to your hips LOL!


...Magnolia's red velvet cheesecake has a chocolate cookie crust for its base followed by a red velvet cheesecake layer and topped with whipped vanilla icing..just describing it makes me want to grab one right now!!!


...comparison is easily done once you had a taste of this case, i will be waiting for another trip to Magnolia to get a little piece of that cupcake heaven :)

on halloween and costumes

...each time halloween comes close, my mind is flooded with a lot of costume ideas but i never get to materialize them...i'm not the shy type, i can tell you that but there's always something in me that holds me back everytime i want to pull off something major for halloween...i think i will stick to what i do best - giving treats to kids who couldn't even pull off a trick :)


...with that in mind, i have updated my bucket list to make sure that before i hit 30 (2 more years from now) i will fulfill my dream of dressing up as Rogue of X-Men LOL!!! now all i need is a fab wig and a good pair of white gloves

..enjoy your halloween parties friends! :)

...i'll be having my birthday 2 weeks from now and i'm starting to hate the fact that i'm nearing my 30's (i'll be turning 28 by the way)...i have a lot to be thankful for this year and i was able to accomplish a lot of things in my bucket list and i just have to post them here to make sure i get to immortalized them :)

1. watched the amazing Cirque du Soleil's breath-taking performance of Varekai...the show which lasted for about 2 hours was just so captivating that i didn't want it to end (and ow, i was still rocking a shaved head at this time)


2. enjoyed Kylie Minogue's Aphrodite tour in Manila and i must say the wait was so worth was by far, the best concert i've been into :) love live the goddess! (and did i mention that this show was just a day after Varekai?)


3. went to the Zoo for the first was one of those things that i didn't get to do during my childhood and i was very happy to finally get to visit one and Washington DC's National Zoo for a first timer is totally not a bad one :)


4. cried more than 4 times while watching Wicked - the Musical on may not be Idina Menzel as the lead but Jackie Burns did Elphaba justice..i am still overplaying the soundtrack up until this time :)


5. conquered NYC for 6 days and it was still not enough but i get to cover the basics - Statue of Liberty, Grand Central, Empire State building tour, Central Park, Rockefeller, SoHo, the MET and Upper East Side and of course the Times Square :)


6. finally reunited with my chilhood bestfriend in San Francisco after not seeing each other for the last 6 years...4 days was not enough and she made me fell in love with San Francisco that leaving her and the city made me very emotional


...i should feel like i need to segue to telling you what i wanted for my birthday but i feel like it needs a new post (i'm becoming more and more materialistic LOL!)
