Boulangerie22 Pokémon Cakes and Macarons- Gotta Eat 'em All!

Still hooked with the addicting Pokémon Go craze? Good news to all Pokemon fans! You don't have to walk, run, or drive far enough to catch the sweetest Pokemon creatures around. 

Boulangerie 22, a bakery and dessert cafe serving specialty cakes and pastries, recently launched their Pokémon Cakes and Pokémon Macarons, to add to its growing selection of delectable and fun character-themed cakes and macarons.

For my birthday, I got myself the Jigglypuff Strawberry Cake (P699) which is a vanilla chiffon cake layered with strawberry buttercream of real fresh strawberries.

SM By The Bay: The 8th Philippine International Pyromusical Competition- Germany

The Philippine International Pyromusical Competition is now on its 8th year of illuminating the city's night sky with a spectacular fireworks display, coupled with a magnificent play of thrilling sounds and vivid colors. 

The annual extravaganza gathers some of the best fireworks manufacturers around the world, with two participants showcasing their pyrotechnic artistry and craft every Saturday night at the SM By The Bay in SM Mall of Asia.


This year's competition, is joined by France, Germany, China, Canada, United Kingdom, and Australia, with an opening and closing exhibition by the Philippines as host country. 

I haven't witnessed a single pyromusical competition during the last seven years, but finally, I experienced the outstanding performances of Germany's Steffes-Olig Feuerwerke, and Nico Events last February 18.

Instead of going out to a fancy dinner, we spent our Valentine weekend at SM By The Bay to witness this grand and majestic spectacle.

Doors open at 4pm, and first firing starts at 8pm. Since we arrived early for the event, we decided to check out the Love Locks by the bay near the patron area.




There were also some carnival-inspired game booths to enjoy while passing the time until the show starts.


Here are the ticket prices for the event:
Patron with dinner- Php 1500
VIP- Php 600
Gold- Php 300
Silver- Php 100

While I used to think that it is better to watch the fireworks display at a far distance, getting front row seats got some perks as well. One, the patron and vip area are much less crowded than the gold and silver section. Secondly, watching the whole exhibition at a very close distance was most certainly a sight to behold. It was like the whole display was within arm's reach as lights illuminate the sky with a bright spectrum of colors.

The first presenter from team Germany was Nico Events.






After the first show, an intermission performance by Kitchie Nadal entertained the guests.


The second presenter was Steffes-Olig Feuerwerke of Germany.





While both German competitors put up a magnificent show, I personally liked Steffes-Olig Feuerwerke better. They literally lit up the sky and filled the night with colors and music. It was such an overwhelming spectacle, and I couldn't think of a better way to have spent the Valentine weekend than watching the 8th Philippine International Pyromusical Competition in SM Mall of Asia.


You can still catch the last exihibition on:
March 18- Australia & Philippines (Closing Show)

Kodanda Archery Range Opens New Branch in Cyber & Fashion Mall Eastwood

Are you looking for a unique activity to do, other than watching movies, eating out, or strolling around the mall? Why don't you try a basic archery session at Kodanda Archery Range.


We have tried archery once at Gandiva Archery and Cafe in Pasig, and it was so fun! I remember wanting to go back to hone our archery skills, and at the same time just do something different for our usual dates.


This time, went to another archery range - Kodanda Archery Range which recently opened their fourth and newest branch at the second level of Cyber & Fashion Mall in Eastwood, Libis.


It has been a year since our last archery session, so we definitely needed a refresher course to start.
Good thing Kodanda staff were kind enough to refresh our memory and gave us instructions to follow.

Chibo Okonomiyaki- Osaka's Okonomiyaki and Teppanyaki in S Maison, Conrad Manila

Ever since Conrad Manila opened, we've been eyeing to try some of the new restaurants located in S Maison. However, all our attempts have been in vain as most establishments were always fully booked during weekends. 

Few months after, we finally had a chance to dine at Chibo Okonomiyaki one Saturday afternoon with our favorite double-date buddies, Sumi and J. 


We started off with a couple of appetizers before the main event.
