twelve cupcakes: Handmade with Love (A Singapore Food Post)

I have a really bad sweet tooth.  It's often a curse, more so now that I am trying to lose a few pounds.  But alas!  I do indulge in a sweet treat once in a while.  Good thing Singaporeans also love their sweet stuff.  In fact, the dessert offerings here are numerous!  From the local treats to western influences, you'd find them all here, as well.

I've always believed you can go wrong with a cupcake.  And one of our favorite sugary treats here in Singapore are these cute tiny cakes from local brand, twelve cupcakes.

What I love about these cuties from is that (1) they are not too sweet (silly I know, to be trying to pacify a sweet tooth with a not so... uhmm... sweet treat.); and (2) they come in just the right size -- not too small, not freakishly huge.  A single piece is enough to keep you satisfied; although you would find it hard to settle for only one.

These small cakes themselves are moist and uses the best ingredients.  No scrimping on the materials used, please.

Take their Cookies and Cream cupcake -- moist chocolate cupcake with a butter cream topping mixed in with Oreo crumbs.  Heavenly...

They also have tons of flavors available (you can browse through their menu at their website).  From their Specials (which sell for S$3.50/Php116* a piece) to the usual, Everyday offerings (S$3/ Php99*), with their own take on classic favorites.

My favorite?  Their Chocolate Chocolate cupcake, so good it's named twice.  Simply perfect for chocolate lovers.

PH | Bang's Tony & Jackey Beauty Salon's Aqua Volume Rebond

I've always had ruly, unmanageable hair for as long as I can remember, hence the introduction of rebonding services here in PH is a blessing.  I've been having my hair rebonded or relaxed once a year since 2002.  It's an expense that I make sure is always included in the yearly luxury budget.

Whereas before I used to have my hair rebonded at a David's Salon (since they always deliver consistently great results), I had to stop and look to other establishments when they eventually jacked up their prices (what used to cost me Php3,000 is now priced at Php5,000 to Php6,000, depending on the branch!).  Too much for my already hurting wallet.  Hence, the need to try other salons.  I've been happy with the results, so far.

The one thing though. that always gets me though is how lifeless and limp my hair tends to look when newly treated.  It's always the case wherever I have my tresses done.  It will look it's best at least a month or 2 after treatment.  It was onl…

Style for Less: Ballerina Flats (Tory Burch vs Kamiseta)

Have you ever noticed how fashionable high-end items just keep on being reinvented by some other brand.  Well after having my eyes checked for fear of seeing doubles (normal daw sabi ni Doc), I decided to scour through the malls in search of fashion doppelgangers.

THE SPLURGE: Tory Burch's Reva ballerina flats (USD195 or around Php9,000)

When well-known American fashion designer Tory Burch released her line of Reva ballerina flats, it was an instant hit.  Known for its incredibly comfortable material and structure with a nicely padded sole and an elasticized heel, these babies made a killing and everyone wanted one. 

How to Apply for a Philippine Postal ID Card

I've said it once and I'll say it again, woe to the newly married woman who has, for years, have gotten so used to her surname only to find that a single (wedding) day, will change this familiarity forever.

I have to admit, it was not easy for me to adapt to a new surname, due mainly for professional reasons.  Throughout my profession career, I have been known by my maiden name and to have to inform all my contacts of the change was, well, too tiresome.  And so I decided to go the hypenated route and I eventually ended up with 2 surnames.  Such was the compromise!  =)
