Fancy Cakes on Magiting

My blockmates and I went to lunch today in McDonald’s Philcoa, but the uptight security guard told us we couldn’t play cards (because “baka sabihing casino ito“) or take pictures of the tacky wall photos (because “baka gamitin sa kalolokohan“), so we were like “We’re outta here.”

We went to Fancy Cakes, this nice little place on Magiting next to Moonleaf.

It’s really tiny (about as big as the Moonleaf branch beside it, for those of you who have been there). It can seat maybe fifteen at most.

I had the chocolate smores cake (P70).

My blockmates had the brazo de mercedes (P50).

What’s up with this cork board fad? Every other little pastry or milk tea shop has it. I suppose it’s a way to build character and to get return customers (“Real people have been here!”) but after a while it gets kind of boring.

It’s a good place to play cards.


First time at the Quezon Memorial Circle

On Saturday I visited the Quezon City Memorial Circle, that expanse of land inside the Elliptical Road, for the first time, with Katz and Ate Regine. Here are moving pictures.

Dear citizens of Quezon City,

Ha! After yesterday’s intense heat, you thought the rains were finally going away, huh? Well, surprise! I bring you more unceasing precipitation. You are drenched. The ground is wet and smells like a basketball player’s sock. Bwahahaha.

The weather.
