It’s very easy to please me. Just give me yummy + pretty and I’m one happy girl! Yolks Flower Cafe + Cupcakery is one of the newer restaurants in the city, and I’ve heard all about it on social media. Flowers and cakes? Count me in! I was finally able to try it during the holidays last December, and I’m glad it didn’t disappoint.
Unfortunately, and please forgive me, I wasn’t able to take a picture of their menu. But what we ordered was the Christmas Set Bundle for P1,395. It had two pizzas, two pasta dishes, chicken, fried dumplings, and drinks.
(You can see prices of their individual dishes in their Facebook page.)

It’s so hot! Just a week ago, there wasn’t a single day with no rain. Right now, it’s too hot to function. Why?!
But rain or shine, we will push to blog hahaha so I’m writing right now in our hot living room. Anyway, I digress. The year is still young and this time is the best time to reflect, plan, and introspect. During my period of planning and introspection (which lasted for about a couple of hours lol), I realised that there are three exciting new things that I’m doing this year, and I would like to share them with you!
1. The 52-Week Challenge
Did backbreaking work for this – everything is handwritten! I’m proud of it though.
I first heard of the 52-week challenge in 2015. Although I found it interesting, and although I was always planning to join, I never had the chance to do it. I always end up doing another thing or not saving money at all (which was the case last year).
Because I saved virtually nothing last year, I resolved to join this challenge and be serious about it. Right now, it’s only the third week and I’ve been using this cute container as my temporary coin bank, but it already feels good!
2. The Happiness Box
Hey everyone! *furiously waves*
This is officially my first post for the year since my last one, the long one about 50 questions and answers (which you seriously need to try because I had so much fun answering it) was written just before the clock struck 12.
Anyway, hi! I subjected myself into an unplanned hiatus because, despite the long days without work (had a grand total of 5 non-working days this season yay!), I just didn’t have time to even check my blog, let alone write. Despite choosing not to go to a lot of Christmas parties, this was my busiest Christmas season yet because of all the guests and gatherings that we had. I had loads of fun but I was actually kinda thankful it’s over. We survived, lol!
Now that I have free time again, time to think and time to write, it’s time to get blogging again. And what else would be a more fitting first-of-the-year post than the One Word?
Everyone, my One Word for 2017:
I was a bit hesitant to use this word because it is a very widely used slang word, which is sometimes used negatively (read: push mo yan teh said in sarcasm). I even considered using another word, but it’s just not the same. The word “push” just called out to me, and from the moment I thought about it, I knew it was my One Word for 2017.
