La Mer de Reve Brooches

After much contemplation (not to mention temptation), I puchased my first and second set of washi tapes during the past weeks. The first one was from Hey Kessy, one of the leading online sellers of washi tapes. They have unique and vast variety of designs to choose from. Then I went to National Bookstore where I chanced upon ultra slim washi tapes at 6mm width! No doubt I had to buy them.

And here are the results of my growing addiction. The illustrations are hand-drawn and colored, then dabbed with washi here and there and a bit of Mod Podge. Et voila! Handmade brooches! These'll be in the shop soon so watch out!

Lunch Date at Rustic Mornings by Isabelo

A celebration was in order as my son just had his first communion on the last day of January. Good thing Rustic Mornings was only a few minutes' walk from the church and his school. I've always seen their signage whenever I take my son to school and now I have a chance to explore it.

Rustic Mornings is the daytime, walk-in version of Cafe Isabelo, as the latter only serves dining by reservation. It's located in a nondescript alley from the shoe museum in Marikina leading to the Pasig River. The alley's quite tight but it is a quiet neighborhood. RM also has a different menu, mainly serving breakfast/brunch specialties. I don't know what it is with breakfast food but I enjoy eating them any part of the day. I guess they're one of my comfort foods.
like dining in the comfort of your country home

The shabby chic interiors and decor will transport you elsewhere upon entering the compound. There were much blues and whites, distressed finishing, and crafty decors. You'll simply cozy up to this place. We chose an al fresco dining space since the weather played along with us; it was a windy-cloudy weather, perfect for the setting. I think not many people have gotten news of this place since it isn't packed yet. But it was a weekday, at lunch time so I wasn't expecting much of a crowd.

We ordered Chicken Fricasee, Sausage Platter, and Waffles and Chicken Strips for my son... And an additional order of Crispy Waffle since it was that good (for dessert). The food was okay, but more of the usual. I did enjoy the cheesy sausage and waffles though. Servings were just right, not too little and not too much.
yummy home-made pancake/waffle syrup

Our afternoon was cut short since the husband had to go back to work. If it wasn't for that I think I would rather have spent more time eating more slowly and savoring the place.
