Sophie Eats: Taiyaki Ice Cream

With all the hype for taiyaki ice cream, I was happy to hear that there’s a stall in the Mall of Asia (MoA). I just finished lunch, so I was in the mood for dessert when, lo and behold, I saw this:

Lucky JPMM Taiyaki Ice Cream

My eyebrows raised a bit at the price of Php 75, but I decided it seemed like it was worth it and ordered one.

Wildflour Cafe + Bakery

[Note: This is a really late blog post. I had scheduled this to be out by September 10, 2016 – but I forgot to post it!  😦 haha whoops.]

Every Sunday, my family and I go to the Sunday market to have a delicious breakfast and to buy some food for the house. This particular Sunday was special because we were celebrating my dad’s birthday – we had breakfast at the Wildflour Cafe + Bakery in Makati.

It was my first time to go here so I was really impressed by the interior and the food displayed as soon as I walked in. We were immediately seated and handed menus (you can view the menu here).

We ended up ordering the following: the pastry board (Php 420) – choice of any four pastries;

Here are the four pastries: (L-R) Salted Egg Croissant & Ube Cake
(L-R): Smores Pie & (I forgot what the other one is called)

Type Kita 2k15

Last December 13 (Sunday), I went to 1161 Pasong Tamo Street, Makati for… Type Kita 3! Type Kita is an annual typography event / exhibit held by local artists. This year is my second time to go to Type Kita. My aunt and I have this small tradition to go to Type Kita and the 10a Alabama Arts and Crafts Fair together whenever we can. Finding the new location (as Type Kita is usually in 10a Alabama) was a little tricky, and we got lost a couple of times, but we eventually made it! When we arrived, I was so excited that I almost broke out sprinting to the entrance. We didn’t spend too long in the event though, as we had other places to be. I got two things from the exhibit:

 I bought a gold Zig Kuratake brush pen during the MIBF (Manila International Book Fair) and I absolutely loved how the brush is! The tip is firm and it’s easy to control and use, plus the color is really nice. The art exhibit itself is really impressive, unfortunately, my phone is messing up so my camera only functioned long enough for me to take two photos. Continue reading “Type Kita 2k15”

10a Alabama Arts and Crafts Fair Haul!

A few days ago, I went to 10a Alabama for the Arts and Crafts Fair.

(It’s become a tradition for us to go!)

With that, I would like to share my haul for this month!

So, this haul consists of:

  • Ella Lama‘s punny animal print (something which I’ve been eyeing for quite some time already)
  • Ella Lama‘s new masking tape design (gahh I still have the old design and both are equally amazing)
  • Three hand painted wooden magnets (a dog, a rabbit, and an owl) – all of which are equally detailed and adorable

    Also, not included in the photo:

  • Pumpkin Spice homemade ice cream by BICE = really really good! It tastes like my aunt’s carrot cake at first, then as the flavor stays on your tongue, it tastes like cinnamon
  • Three really soft and chewy cookies = it tasted okay – I mean, it was really soft and chewy, but the taste was a little bland?

Anyways! That was my haul for this month — now, time to save up for Type Kita!
