Birthday Carousel Ride

LittleMiss turns 3 

Dear LittleMiss, We are once again traveling on your birthday, this may be a sign that one of your life goal is to explore places. On your first birthday we traveled from HK to MNL via Cathay Pacific and now on your 3rd birthday we are on our way to LAX via KLM and plane will leave on your exact birth time 12:48 am.

For now, here is the latest cake (and my first wedding cake) from my kitchen.

Visiting each site has become a morning ritual and it’s kinda good and bad for me – I end up hungry after each visit  and my list of recipes to try has piled up. With a whole lot of recipes to try it’ll be a waste if they only end up printed and not created at all. That’s why I decided to try at least 1 recipe a month from FIA. Summer = Mangoes! We went to Sharjah Market last weekend and bought a kilo of Mangoes from India and the guy insisted that “mangoes from India are the best madam” (I beg to disagree our Philippine Mango is the best!) I didn’t argue with the guy since I don’t have any Pinoy Mango with me for us to compare. I love mangoes be it green or yellow. It does not matter where it came from I just love them! I eat them as nature …
