Hello Busog! Sarap! folks…. I’ve been MIA (Missing In Action) for the past few weeks and this is due to my never ending cooking commitments plus running the TRIBE’s household everyday hustle and bustle. In an ideal world, I would love to be a mother who can dress up and pretty myself up early in the morning and have “a by the hour” on time schedules for the whole day but this is the real world and nope…it will never happen! This sadly to say also apply in regards to my writing Busog! Sarap! posts, even with just me and lil’ adorable monster at home there’s no peace and quiet really. TRIBE’s youngest addition can now climb out of his cot, wiggle himself out of his high chair restraints and climb/balance himself on the top back edges of our sofas to drool over our glass windows. At the moment I can only do some typing/writing 1-2 hours before I go to sleep at night while the rest of the TRIBE are fast asleep, that is the only timeslot that is quiet and peaceful enough for me to think and gather my leftover sanity.
You might be all wondering what I’ve been doing lately, so to give a few glimpse of what I have done last year and this year here are some pics:
I got a special request early October last year for a little boy’s 1st birthday and this was my first full on Dessert Themed Table outside the TRIBE’s turf. It was a success and everyone in the party totally loved it which was a big relief for me!
I’ve celebrated my birthday last year with a Children Halloween Party at our “La Garage”. The guests loved the whole setup and this time we also invited Grown Ups. The TRIBE has done a Halloween Gig before which I have posted two years ago. We recycled some of the decor and added few more quirky things.
We had Mummies & Pumpkin Cake Pops, Frankenstein Vomit (Buko Pandan), Witches Fingers, Ogre’s Big Toes and Dirty Cotton Buds for dessert.
The TRIBE celebrated Miss M and Samboy’s Birthday together last December and this is what Mr H and I came up with. We just did a simple dessert table as we have to cook the rest of the Filipino Food for the buffet spread.
We got another special request to do some cooking for my Kumare’s lovely daughter's 18th Birthday this month and as a gift we set up a 18th Purple Dessert Table for her with some of her favourite sweets.
It was a fantastic 18th Birthday Party, the family of the celebrant all did all the table layouts and decor of the place and it was a sight to behold…..I must say the best DIY I’ve been involved with.
As you can all see, I’m getting addicted to Themed Dessert Tables when time permits…. I have to blame the freaking Smurfs at Mr Adventurous 5th Birthday Smurfs Dessert Table. I’ve also got a bit obsessed on making Cake Pops and Cake Shooters last year which I happily already added to my “I can do” talent…lol! But dear friends even though my plate is already full of activities, I will never quit Busog! Sarap! after all, cooking is my passion and sharing is my goal. I got so many recipes & stories to share ….my adventures on cooking Lechon Paksiw, Ensaymada Chronicles and my journey into the world of baking to name a few. Thank you very much for following Busog! Sarap! and being so understanding! Till next post…..
