Birthday Wishes.

Cake timeToday is Kuya (older brother) Randy’s birthday.

I’m sure he wouldn’t mind me saying how old he is (49) seeing that he looks about 10-15 years younger than his age.

I took some pix of food everybody was preparing for a short lunch celebration.

We wished him a Happy Birthday and said a prayer before he headed out to take JirahMae (Jhoanape and Randy’s five-year-old daughter) to school.

I’m expecting cake today!

And I got it ๐Ÿ˜‰ . We’ll be heading off to Fort Charlotte soon. You can check those pictures here: http://islanderpunkandtechie.blogspot.com.

Pecan Tarts and Coconut Macaroon Cupcakes…and Pizza.

Freaking delicious! Today, which was actually the 21st, Ate Jhoanape (Ate means “older sister” in Tagalog, the predominant dialect in the Philippines; it is usually said with respect to one’s age) concocted some scrumptious sweets: pecan tarts and coconut macaroon cupcakes.

Spent hours at the bakery switching from bread to cakes and eventually pizza! This explains my reason for posting so late.

I managed to pull together my own brand of pizza with sprinkles of 4 different cheeses, traditional tomato sauce, pepperoni, ham, bell pepper and chunks of young green habanero peppers.

Ate Jhoanape, of course, had her own version which wasn’t as spicy and a little bit more circular than mine.

At Last…

Pictures speak louder than words and videos take the cake. I’ll let the images tell the story…for the

As for those secret recipe previews, I’m not too sure that I’ll be able to make good on that promise.

Uncle Fidel insisted that the family recipe be kept a secret.

What he said made sense. I actually found out that the bakery is struggling to keep up with demand.

So much for me promoting the goodies; just kidding. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Oh yeah, I’ve been struggling to keep up with names so forgive me if I fail to mention who’s who in each photograph, for the moment.
