Bunny Baker - baking with love

Remember that white bunny rabbit in wonderland that Alice was chasing?

No, he wasn't here but I must say, eating at this cafe feels like I'm in wonderland because hearts and bunnies are everywhere.

Less than a year old and located in a new building in  the heart of Quezon City is Bunny Baker Cafe, a cafe now known for bunny ears and just pink awesomeness.


I *heart* coffee and eggs. :-)



Roomy and cozy enough for a bridal or baby shower




Made-to-order cakes



Lots of gelato flavors to choose from!


































There's the bunny!

Tongue-tied with Bohol's beauty


Bohol has always been on my bucket list of places to visit. Located in the Central Visayas region, Bohol is close neighbors with Cebu and Leyte. A little further to the south, is already Mindanao.

My family and I were fortunate to have visited this beautiful place in June 2013 and saw some of its wonderfully well-preserved churches before a strong earthquake damaged much of the structures in October of the same year.

We stayed at a relatively new hotel, Amarela, which was quite homey and unlike the 5-star resorts that have recently sprouted along the coastline of Panglao, Bohol's version of a more quiet white sand beach similar to Boracay.
















Some of the handicrafts being sold in Amarela's souvenir shop.











The path leading to some of the rooms.




The view of the rooms if you are coming from the beach area.



There's even a small art gallery.













Decor in the main house/building.





The books and DVDs can be borrowed by the guests.








The dining area overlooking the sea.





Our room's balcony area







The reception area








And now, a look at our room...















The next day, we woke up to a beautiful morning. Perfect for dolphin-watching!




















Just look how clear the water is!






















We didn't pass up the chance to see Bohol's prized possessions -- the tarsier, chocolate hills, the Loboc River and centuries-old churches.










































Right beside one of the churches was a lovely cafe with an enormous backyard.











We also went to the Mahogany forest..





...one of the ancestral houses..





...the monument of the Blood compact..





and the Bohol Bee Farm.

Their ice cream was so delicious!






Truly, it's more fun in the Philippines!
