A block away

Ice Cream

A slightly random Saturday. While killing time around this corner, Ann and my goddaughter Ginger arrive on a tricycab. Taxis are alien in Sunshine City.


We headed the same way

Every little thing...

I agree.

Ericke’s random shoes.

The lacy material of this pair of preppy kiddie shorts is pretty and soft as cotton.

I’m a follower of The Sartolialist for current and chic street fashion photography. Scott’s photo book is available at National Bookstore, now open at the Ilocano Heroes Hall turned mall. Waiting for Scott’s latest,  Closer.

On one of the pages of the book… I admire US Elle style director Kate Lanphear’s fearless style.

Walked to nearby Red Dot…

Marianne got cute outfits for my goddaughter Marylaine. Chose the Hello Kitty Vans for the cute little girl.

Oh, our first stop was actually Hap Chan. Joy bought us a dim sum lunch consisting of hakaw (shrimp dumplings, ham siok (fried meat-stuffed dumplings), seafood noodles, asado pork and sweet carrot and squash, kinda like sticky rice cakes. A jolting earthquake was felt while we were dining. It frightened us especially that the tea house is located in a crowded vintage building. Frozen for a minute.

Joan came in late, so we accompanied her to the nearby fastfood. After our heritage tour in Bacarra, we filled ourselves again, to the brim, with toasted isaw, fishballs and kikiam at Tayamen’s. Thank you, Tsang!

Red Dot’s Gingersnaps Candy Land Extravaganza

Saturday afternoon was spent with young ones up ’til the evening. First, I dropped by Red Dot’s Gingersnaps event. I was too early for the origami and clay pot workshops, so I just took photos of the early birds. The kids’ event seemed a lot of fun. The pretty youngsters came in what else, but Gingersnaps.

Eugene was one of the origami workshop assistants.
