I guess seeing that I actually uploaded a trailer of the movie "Confessions of a Shopaholic" you already have a clue on why I entitled this post "My Confessions" instead of the movie title itself, yes, Imma self confessed shopaholic and I cannot remember how many times I've watch this movie but every time I do, I still can't stop myself fr drooling over Rebecca's shoes and clothes played by Isla Fisher. I can relate to almost every scene in this movie, well except for the part that she was being chase by the debt collector because I don't own a credit card and I don't intend to coz I'm such an impulsive buyer but I don't have anything against those that have these magical plastics,lol! its just that for me, it's not really advisable. What I also love about the movie, is how her parents taught her that anyone shouldn't be define by the clothes they wear or by any material things that they own, love of family and friends is still what matters, I'm also guilty of forgetting it sometimes, though I wont go through the details anymore coz I don't want to sound like a drama queen,lol! I love shopping, like how I love writing, fashion and being a foodie but I'm proud to say that once in a while I practice the art of being a practical shopper. I go to the malls, only to check the latest collection of some high end brands and then I go to bazaars to shop for dresses that almost has the same style with those that I saw in malls. Most of the time there's not much of a difference, even the fabric is also the same but you can get them for less than half the price. You don't really have to buy knock off items but there are really good finds fr the not so popular brands.
I've always wanted to try French Cuisine and yesteday I finally got to experience it when I went to Bizu Patiserrie in Greenbelt 2, in Makati. There's also another branch in Alabang Town Center but I preferred to try the one in Greenbelt because it's a bigger place, therefore photos of the place would be better :D
I love their motif which are pink and purple, so girly, so me!
A complimentary dish of bread that came with butter and herbs was served while waiting for my order. Their complimentary dish is already so good.
When I went there, I'm not really hungry,so I just ordered for something light in the tummy. I tried their La Doyenne. A forest ham sandwich that they toasted and pan fried, topped with dark cherry preserves and chantily cream. I'd give this dish a 4.5 out of 5 star rating. The Dark cherry preserves are too sweet that after a couple of bites, I scraped some of it from the bread because I might get tired of the taste, good thing the sandwich also has cheese to give it a li'l salty taste but for me it wasn't really enough, those cherries are still too sweet.
I also tried their Cafe mocha, which deserves a perfect score. I sooo love the taste and how it looks. This is perfect for a cold weather and it kinda tasted like choknut drink of one of the restaurants that I also visited before.
My trip to this place is such a treat. I love the ambience and the friendly staff. A must try for French cuisine craving.
