Snap of my life lately

Hi Sweeties! It’s been a long time since I posted something here. I really miss this blog. Here’s a snap of my life lately: I’ve been busy due to work and pageant. I am currently working as a government employee and a part-time tutor. Also, I’m happy to share that I passed the Civil Service Examination for Professional and I recently joined a unique pageant that promotes culture and heritage. And I’m happier to share also that I won the crown!! :)))) I never thought that my passion in baking and travelling would make me the Lakambini ng Las Casas. Maybe it’s really true. The universe is generous to the people who follow their destiny. 🙂

Bedtime Stories

Periwinkle

It is 3:02 ante meridiem, 14th of January year 2015.

“If you love your child, let them journey.”

I am watching Yumeiro Pâtissière. This anime caught my attention not only because of the word ‘pastry’ but because of Ichigo, the protagonist. I could somehow see myself in her, a girl who has love for sweets and dreams to make people smile through sweet treats. I am a junior in college, studying Economics. I’ve always wanted to go to a culinary school and be a pastry chef and/or have my own pastry shop. But my family especially my Dad keeps telling me I shouldn’t and that anyone can cook & bake.. Sometimes, I really feel down and don’t know what to do. 😦  I’m watching Yumeiro Patisserie, maybe  I can find the answer..

Ichigo: I want to become a  Pâtissière. I want to be like Grandma who made people smile with her…

Day 03: The First Time You Baked

The first time I baked was the first time I fell in love. 

I had my puppy love when I was in 3rd year high school. We were never been a couple but he always made me feel beautiful and special. He was the first guy who made me understand the “kilig” feeling. So, as to show my gratefulness, I got inspired to make something for him. It was our JS Prom Night and it was also the day that I learned how to bake. I was only 15 yrs old back then. Haha! The special feeling w that guy did not last but the magical feeling that I discovered in making sweets is still here in my heart, and no one can ever take away that from me. 

What did I bake? A crema de fruita! Bread roll, too!  I learned it from my brother’s wife. (Hi Ate Dess!! ❤️)

 PS. It was not really baking cos no oven was used. But I find it as a pre-step in baking. Hihi! And thanks for this experience cos I realized my dream. ♥️

PPS. It was a no bake crema de fruita or others call it as ref cake. If you want the recipe, you can message me. It was really simple and easy to make but the effect of it was special. You will find joy in making sweets and seeing other people smile through your creations. 🙂
