Sugar and Spice and Everything Nice at Vanilla Cupcake Bakery & Cafe

Do you remember the fairy tale Hansel and Gretel? Seeing this dainty bakery and cafe called Vanilla Cupcake will remind you of that because everything here is eye-candy...from its delightfully appealing facade... its cute interiors that will remind you of an old English tea house. The place may look too girly, but my boy blended perfectly with all the pastel colors surrounding him.   

Seeing layers of colorful cupcakes will surely make anyone drool...and choosing one cupcake can be quite difficult too because of its wide selection of mouthwatering goodies. 

Aside from these tempting cupcakes, the cafe also offers meals that are affordable and have huge servings too so light eaters can share one dish. My mom and son shared the Fish and Chips, which is worth less than 200. We just ordered 2 extra rice, which wasn't necessary anymore because the fries are quite filling already. It took a long time before we got our order...more than an hour (I even had to create a scene just to get prioritized). I think that they forgot all about our order and just reheated the fish because it was greasy and not freshly cooked.
My friend recommended the Garlic Beef Tapa, which was also worth less than 200. It was served with two eggs, garlic rice, and atchara. Two people can share this meal, but I was able to finish it all by myself...and was so full afterwards. It was really good...the meat was tender, the garlic rice was also delicious and two eggs are more than it was worth the price. 

For dessert, we ordered the blueberry cheesecake cupcake, but since I got so full and a bit sleepy...I forgot to take a picture of it :( However, it was good but not that amazing. 
Here's a copy of the menu of Vanilla Cupcake Bakery and Cafe (I got it from their Facebook page). 
Despite the bad service, I'm going to go here again hoping that I will be lucky this time in getting a good waitress to attend to us because the girl last time didn't even said "sorry" or admit her mistake. She just tried to avoid us so another waitress took over and apologized for the delay in our order. Oh well, I guess not everything is nice at Vanilla Cupcake Bakery and Cafe.

MyHealth Clinic Takes Care of My Health

Getting sick is a real pain in the *** but to wait for a long queue in discomfort and end up with a list of expensive medicines to  buy would definitely make anyone feel more sick! I was glad I have a health card from work so that lessens my worry about the check up and laboratory expenses. I usually go to Medical City Clinic in Trinoma and Waltermart for the check-up but my experience there was not really that good especially in Waltermart, Munoz. The nurses there and attendants seem so laid back (which is a better term for being lazy) and busy chatting with each other. I waited for a long time (around 30 min.) just to have my Maxicare approved and after that I went to the nurse's station to give my papers but the girl was busy on her phone so the guy beside her placed my paper on her table and told me to wait for my name to be called. So I waited for my name to be called and it was almost an hour. I was really wondering why it would take that long just to have my blood extracted…

Ampalaya (Bitter Melon) Salad

Ampalaya (Eng: bitter melon)is hated by many because of its bitter taste. It is rare to find a kid eating ampalaya and even only a few adults would dare ate this vegetable. I think the first time I ate ampalaya was in grade school when we were asked by our teacher to eat it since it signifies the bitter herb mentioned in the Bible. Now that I am all grown up and enjoy eating all kinds of food, I happen to love ampalaya. My former colleague brought ampalaya salad  at work and it was good! You won't taste its bitternes so I asked her how she did it. I made it at home and mom liked it, but my sister did not because she said it was still bitter. FAIL! 
As years go by, I think I have finally perfected making the not-so-bitter Ampalaya (Bitter Melon) Salad. I am going to share this to those who love this green veggie and the first-timers who dare to taste it.

Easy Beef Sukiyaki Recipe

I love Japanese food and one of my fave meals is Sukiyaki. My mom spent a lot of time making that dish when we were little so I thought it was difficult to make. She uses authentic ingredients which could only be seen in specialty sections in groceries or Japanese stores. With my desire to eat Beef Sukiyaki, I have made some research and used ingredients that can be found in regular groceries. Here is my easy and no sweat Beef Sukiyaki recipe. 


1/2 kilo Sukiyaki Beef Cut 
Chinese Cabbage "bok choy"(Fil: pechay) - sliced around 1-inch long
2 Medium-sized Carrots - cut in thin slices
Onion Leeks - cut around 1-inch long

1 cup soy sauce
3 tablespoons of sugar
dash of pepper
