We’re back!

Had marvellous time chaperoning my daughter and her gymnastics team to compete in FOBISIA Gymnastics 2017 in Bangkok, stressful in the beginning (probably a few parents like yours truly, but for sure not all hehe) but overall we had a blast. On the day that we arrived in Bangkok we’ve got to ushered the whole gymnastics team and their supporters to Harrow International School for Podium Training prior checking in to our hotel. The next day was the first competition day for MAG (Man Age Group) level 1-4 and WAG (Woman Age Group) level 2-4. My daughter is in level 5 and due to compete the day after so we were taking it easy in the hotel and try to stay chill.

Day 2 of competition went by so fast, my daughter was the only girl in level 5 representing her school and she did very well in each apparatus, she won first place on Floor and 3rd place overall, absolutely fantastic achievement, very proud of her.

Now that FOBISIA gymnastics is done and dusted, as promised, she’s allowed to have a few treats before going back to her healthy meal routine. The first thing she had was a large sliced of Hawaiian pizza at Dean & Deluca in Suvarnabhumi International airport, she was enjoying every bite of it!

Got back home in Manila a few days ago and she asked me to bake one of our family favourite baked goodies, Gluten Free Chocolate Brownies. So today I made it for her, my preferred ingredients for this moist brownies were freshly ground almond and organic dark chocolate, the key is to bake it in a very low temperature. Also to  make it extra special I sprinkled a generous amount of Callebaut semi sweet chocolate chips on top, trust me, the whole house smells so divine when the brownies were ready!

Of course Little Miss Gymnast got an ice cream with her brownies, a very well deserved treat.  Ariel, you never cease to amaze us, congratulations mi amor ❤
