late post is late. haven’t blogged in a while because… life, haha. and so, we went to the up lantern parade some, ahem, three months ago. it was as always, really fun but there were so many people that night it was somewhat difficult to get good photos.

the building lights and the floats were very nice though, they had this ‘film’ theme going on too. on a side note, there was one point when, in an attempt to catch up with the floats, we tried crossing the whole of the sunken garden… which was very unwise, haha, but… at least to me, it was a funny moment (hey, i was wearing a dress and skate shoes with the waffles sticking to the wet ground). we stopped trying to cross after a few meters.

we ended the night eating at the chocolate kiss cafe, i hadn’t eaten there in a long time, they still make all the old cakes (like dayap and devil’s food) and the acid orange tea. on a side note, if you’re going to have the bahay ng alumni as your meet-up place (which i did), better inform your unfamiliar friends that it is a building inside of up diliman… in my case everyone was asking “who” the alumni was… “bahay ng alumni? sinong alumni?”, nyahaha.

yun lang.

maki and i decided to have merienda at chocolate kiss cafe before going to the miss engineering pageant. i’ve been to bahay ng alumni before for a school event but this is the first time i’m going to eat at the resto. gusto ko yung pangalan niya… it sounded like kissing chocolate eclairs.

we went up to the second floor where chocolate kiss has a cozy nook. you’d be greeted by cakes and twinkly lights. their staff were too busy. there were a number of people, good sign yun, i thought.

maki and menu … the cafe’s pretty menu was simple, a square folded to make a triangle with circles intertwined on the print. mahilig sila sa shapes, hahaha! di ko alam bat napapansin ko to. anyhoo, we ordered iced tea, piglets, and devil’s food cake…

om nom nom … so uh, i found the iced tea interesting, you mix it yourself! so eun, di naman nasurprise si maki sa dami ng honey na nilagay ko. the seeds from the acid orange… calamansi in english, hahahah! …were giving me a difficult time though. they kept getting stuck in the straw. maki’s such an expert with this iced tea, she didn’t have any trouble at all.

i ordered the piglets because they were called that. lol. they were sausages wrapped in bacon, not too greasy and the dip is great! i wish they’d have something named after bears though. bigger meat please, kind chocolate kiss cafe ma’am or sir?

finally, we had cake. and of course, i’m a big cake fan. maki’s recommended the devil’s food cake… which is actually heavenly. it has some chocolate filling in the middle, sort of makes it different from other cakes and the frosting’s like fluffy frothy sugar. ahihi, babalik daw kami ni maki dito, can’t wait to try the other cakes!

yun lang muna.
