Cake Heaven: Vizco's Restaurant and Cake Shop in Baguio

For about 3 (or 4?) years now, Baguio has been my favorite go to place when I want to escape from the noise of Manila. While most friends can't seem to dig why we always go there when all we do is to sleep most of the time, my Baguio buddies and I are just addicted to the place. It's hard to explain, really, like we're in a magic spell of some sort.. and oh, it's partly because of the pillows, bedsheets and comforters too. :)

Every year, when strawberries are in season, we make it a point to drop by Vizco's along Session Road. Their Strawberry Shortcake is really yummy. Last weekend, our cravings led us to that cake shop in Session Road again and we were very happy to see that the strawberry shortcake is available. As a bonus, we also learned that they're now selling Red Velvet cakes too!

..And so the cake night! Haha! I forgot to take pictures of the cakes fresh right out of the box. So here it is 10 minutes after... (Photo taken from my Blackberry)

Essilor Crizal Forte UV Lens Review

Last month, I attended the Philippine Launch of one of Essilor's breakthrough lenses, the Crizal Forte UV, at the NBC Tent in Bonifacio Global City. Check out the post here.

Recently, I have decided to retire my orange funky black rimmed glasses with a sharp looking chic silver frame. Hmmm, no I wasn't really on the lookout for something chic, haha. That's so not me! It just happened that I was able to spot an optical shop with a good selection of frames at a good price, and then I fell in love with this style. Anyway,  t'was a perfect timing also to test out the new Crizal Forte UV Lenses. Excited much!

Lovin' the Curve!

After much thought on the battle of the mobile tech fruits, I decided to get myself a Blackberry Curve 9380 early this year. Reasonably priced at less than Php 20k, this 3.5" full touch-screen phone is a winner :)

 It runs on Blackberry OS 7.0 (I haven't upgraded to 7.1 yet.... I don't think the upgrade is already available here in the Philippines), with powerful messaging features and pre-installed apps, WiFi, and a 5MP Camera (w/ LED flash!).

Battery life? hmmm, it sucks. But the reason behind the battery drain is pretty obvious though ---- I use it all the time to check my FB and Twitter accounts, chat with friends on BBM, do some browsing, play games, watch YouTube videos, create word documents for blog drafts, create simple spreadsheets, read RSS feeds etc...  so I see to it that I always bring my charger with me wherever I go.
