Essentials

 

The Swim Meet season has begun, on race daymy daughter has 4 items in her swimming bag that she won’t leave home without; swimming cap, goggles, sunscreen and baked goodies (or to be specific home made chocolate madeleines). This year she’s been training really hard after summer break and it definitely pays off. Over the weekend in Brent 40th Invitational Swim Meet she won 4 gold medals (50m Back stroke, 50m Butterfly, 100m Medley relay & 100m Free relay), 1 silver medal (50m Free) and a 4th place ribbon for 50m breast stroke. Yup, those Madeleines surely packed extra kick!

One proud Mama here ❤️

Calm before the party, the day that we’ve been waiting for is finally here!

Earlier today I baked small batch of marbled cupcakes with buttercream frosting and light blue M&M (hand carry from New York <3) for our Sunday morning treat.  Cut the story short, my better half got us tickets to watch The Blue Man Group at The Theatre in Solaire for their 2 pm show and we’re all very excited, heard really good reviews about them.

And yes, the show was absolutely superb! We’re sitting at the Splatter Zone (we’ve got rain coat to wear but its really not necessary) and had a blast. Anyway,  not gonna spoil it further but if you haven’t seen them yet they have couple more shows the next weekend in Manila, grab your tickets now, highly recommended!

A mixed of Vanilla cupcakes and Chocolate cupcakes pull apart cupcakes cake with Football theme, Crisann requests for her boys football team dinner celebration. She did the sketch for me with the team player initial on their jerseys and their position in the field, such a great idea!

She texted me just now to tell me that the cupcakes were a big hit, one happy cupcake artist here ❤
