Of Birthdays and Sweets Pt. 1
Last week opened with my grandma’s birthday last Monday and closed with Joren’s birthday last Friday which we celebrated until yesterday. Due to lack of time, I’ll only be sharing that of my grandma’s birthday today. :]
My grandma turned 82 last Monday. We celebrated the day before that with the rest of the family that’s present in Manila.
Before heading to the lunch, we dropped by Red Ribbon to buy her a cake. I’ve heard of Black Forest before but not White Forest. It was good though, I’ve always favored white chocolate to brown chocolate - with the exception of the presence of peanut butter.
Another birthday cake except it’s mini-sized from Bizu
I didn’t get to taste the cake from Bizu but I did get my first bite of a French macaron from Bizu. This one’s mint flavored and I normally don’t like anything minty but this was a pleasure to munch on.
Spring rolls from North Park
To be honest, I’m not very close to my grandma or my cousins but it’s always nice to gather as a big family. :) Here’s a picture of me and my cousins together with lola.
