If there is Heaven on the 5th at Rustan’s Makati, there is Heaven on the ground level at Powerplant Mall
I stopped by last friday to see what is new or what I had not seen last year….
I was so happy to have finally met Tin. I featured her YUMMY apple pie before and I am glad to meet the woman behind it all.

I always ask each owner what their bestseller is or what they are known for….Tunnel of Fudge cake is their bestseller. They also make speciality cakes for occassions
I was very happy to meet the owner of Estrel’s! When I saw her, I said, are you Estrel’s? I was so embarassed! Her name is Joy! I always hear Estrel’s Caramel cake all over the place so I got excited when I saw them at the Baker’s Dozen and of course I want to always meet the owner. Joy was so nice! She even gave me a cake! She made sure I came back for it because I was carrying tons of things. My favorite is the HEART shaped one covered with flowers on top! Icing Icing!! and flowers at that! YUMMY!
Best seller: Carrot cake and Bread Pudding!
OH MY GOSH TIPPI!!! I spotted your carrot cake cookies right away!!! YUMMY!!!!! 2 cookies with cream cheese in between!!!! I am definitely going back to get some!!!!!
I think I am into carrot cake suddenly – even that carrot cake of Christine’s Kitchen was really good!
What an interesting name and names of pastries! I wonder if it really works as a “gayuma.” I will have to taste it yet!
I googled the definition and found this which may give you an idea for those that do not know what it means ( taken from Pyrexia’s Crepitus ):
Gayuma = love potion in” tagalog.” More than being a concocted drink or additive, it is also associated with any object that arouses one’s sexual desire towards another person, usually the one who gave or owned the object referred to as gayuma. (my definition)
In the Philippine setting, although accepted as a myth or a superstitious belief, gayuma is still something that most people turn to when it comes to matters of the heart that can’t be solved by courtship or any other means of winning one’s heart. Concocted most of the time from herbs, plant roots, and other stuffs believed to have extra special magical powers, they aren’t hard to find once you know where to look for them (most of the time near prominent churches such as Quiapo church and Baclaran church). Since the early times, its effectiveness, according to its patrons, is proven and will not fail as long as one believes in its mystical properties.
Kitchen’s Best had some new things and is ready for Christmas with all their packaged items!
