Sweet Relief

Another Wednesday in my workweek. But this time, I had to deal with a fast-paced working environment; dividing my body in between clients on the phone, dictations needed to be finished and documents that had to be attended to -- urgently.

And just when I thought that was it, I had almost went through a heated argument with someone  who gave me the biggest disappointment first thing in the morning (talk about timing, really). I was fuming mad deep within but decided not to engage in any exchange of words (it's hard to argue with shallow-minded people who just would not stop yakking) knowing that it will just be a waste of time, and I am not paid by my boss for such kind of crap.


I knew I had to do something to lift my mood; my office mate Kat has been mentioning about this pastry shop, Gigi Coffee & Cupcakes. During lunch, I decided to hop by the said store and try their cupcakes. Upon entering the store, I noticed the minimalist, cozy vibe. The green and white interiors were refreshing. And for their products, I got myself these:



This was my half-eaten Buttercream Cupcake. Sorry for the shot, I was already in the middle of enjoying it when I realized to take a photo using my phone. The first thing I told Kat about this was it tastes like milk -- condensed milk.

 

This was one of their best sellers, the Red Velvet cupcake. All the while as I was enjoying my buttercream cupcake, I am tempted at trying this one too, but decided against it and took this home as my pasalubong to Mama instead.

Their cupcakes are eye candy. Now if you're to ask my verdict, while I loved that the cupcakes were chewy, moist and somewhat melts in the mouth, it's tad too sweet for my taste. Mama has the same thing to say too. Their cupcakes costs 40 pesos. Now, on this, we have different opinions. I think it's reasonable, Mama was surprised and protested at that.

Oh well, I don't plan to eat this everyday. At least I got to try -- for a change.
