Lots and Lots of Baked Goodies at SnR Alabang

I don’t frequent SnR very often, because (1) I don’t have a membership card, and (2) I really resolved not to to get one because I know I’ll binge on purchases there every time.

I was surprised at all the new varieties (new for me) of baked items they had for sale!  Continue reading “Lots and Lots of Baked Goodies at SnR Alabang”

After a few shopping errands and a carb-loading pasta and pizza dinner on a Sunday night, I gave marching orders to the Hubby, the Princess, and the Baby Ball (who will soon be a baby no more!) that mall time was over and we should head on home. On the way to the parking lot, I stopped in my tracks when I saw this new gelato shop.  So sorry guys, change of plans: Mag-ice-cream muna tayo!
