The semester break is only a week away! Classes are over but I still have one more task to accomplish tomorrow ... encoding of grades. Tomorrow is our deadline and before I finally welcome the much needed break, I still have one project due before the almost week long break. Before I finally convert to vacation mode, let me recount the few beautiful things that made my past week. 

I was asked to report in Makati before weekend. Whenever I visit the place, I make it a point to meet my dearest friend A. We explored Landmark and Glorietta, the two malls I rarely see.We also passed by the intimidating but lovely Greenbelt ;) After a long day, we finally got to try Mom & Tina's. The food was great and I'm willing to visit again. I only have one complain though. Customer service is not that great. I will not detail the incident but hopefully when we come back, we will have a better experience.

Despite the experience, I took home a tub of sugar free merengue. It didn't last a day at home. :)

Meet my new toy!! - This is another great product that is unfortunately delivered by very poor customer service. I scored this old school camera through Lazada Online Shopping. Lazada is great in terms of prices and product diversity. It unfortunately fails on one important aspect of online shopping; product delivery on time. I'll share this in another post.

One of my favorite fruits is in season again - I swear, I can finish an entire tub by myself.

Almost a week ago, we celebrated the 7th birthday of another kid in the family. Can I just say that kids today are luckier?! The fondant cake is very ideal in the always summer temperature in Manila. The icing remains in the same condition throughout the entire party. We never had cupcakes with frosted icing back then. There's candy buffet and other unique treats that never fail to surprise me.
