Classic Confections with Elvert and Jet
Who would’ve thought that I’d be uber stressed on the days leading to my birthday? Thank goodness for great company, for friends that stimulate you mentally, visually and spiritually. What better way to celebrate that friendship than to visit pastry shops like Classic Confections at Greenbelt 5.
It’s been more than a year since I’ve been there, so I was glad that Elvert thought about paying the shop a visit. I was craving for some lemon torte, but since I cannot finish one on my own, even their smallest portion, I settled for Mango Panna Cotta (PhP150) instead.
It tastes as vibrant as it looks. I am fond of flans and pana cotta, so liking this wouldn’t be a problem.
Russian tea cookie (PhP55). Goes best with…well, tea.
Two of my favorite hotties. Hihihi. They blend well with Classic Confection’s fun surroundings.
Elvert felt like having some cupcake so here it is, with dark green frosting (PhP60).
No wonder Elvert loves this place so much. They serve Illy coffee. Hihihihi. And that little cookie is so cute!
Me and my Mango Panna Cotta. Happiness!
Me and Jet, surrounded by images of delectable pastries. What a nice kick-off.

And now for my Birthday Winners…
First thing’s first, there were good comments that didn’t quite make the cut but we thought they deserve small tokens of appreciation (which I’ll be giving on the 12th). They are:
We actually chose a fourth winner because the answers bear nearly the same weight. There was just a fraction of a difference between this and the next winner. Since I have an extra PhP500 SM gift certificate, I’m giving that to:
Our runners-up will be receiving the gift packs containing Beyond Bath body butter, Beyond Bath shampoo or body wash, Asian Secrets Lulur body scrub and Human Nature Love Minerals tinted lip balm. They are:
Our winner, who will be receiving the PhP1,000 SM gift certificate is:
To claim the prizes, you have to meet me at Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf, Ayala Triangle, 3PM on March 12, 2011 so I can treat you (care of some excess gift certificates and coupons) to my birthday merienda and you can tell me all about yourselves. Hehe.
Arrangements for the meet-up can be found in this note. If you are not available on that date, please inform me so we can make arrangements.
Looking forward to seeing you guys!
