I blog the same reason why I like documenting my firsts. Partly because it gives me something to do, another is that it gives me something to look back to when I’m older but mostly, I keep track of my firsts because I am generally a very sentimental person. The past weekend has been full of firsts for me. I saw the moon rise for the first time, I dipped my feet into a river with icy, running water, I held on to the trunks of mahogany trees when I climbed a mountain like my life depended on it (in reality, it kind of did) and I got dumped (for lack of a better term) by the same person for the third time.
I guess it takes a certain kind of maturity for two people to agree that something is good, but that it just isn’t right, for the time being, at least. They always say that if love is true, and that if two people are meant to be together, they will always find their way back to each other, no matter what. Everyone says that if you want it, you fight for it, but I believe that is not always the case. Because sometimes, letting go of one person to save them from hurting is better than clinging on and watch them start withering. If something is bound to happen, it will happen. In the right time, with the right person and for the best reason.
Here is an open letter, from me, to you. Good luck with all your endeavors. :)

Do you know that feeling when you are craving for something and want it so bad but you just cannot make yourself go out for it? I get that feeling all the time. Thankfully, the people from City Delivery devised a way for us lazy potatoes to get what we want by doing so little. Satisfying your cravings is now just a phone call/click away!
I know, I know. Another food delivery service, so what? Well, what make City Delivery so special is that they offer food delivery from over a hundred restaurant partners! In the mood for Japanese? They have John and Yoko and Omakase! Burgers, anyone? Try Stackers or Big Better Burgers. Desserts, you ask? Order from Sonja’s Cupcakes and Bizu! But wait, there’s more! They don’t just offer foods from restaurants! They also have a roster of unique foodie finds - home based merchants such as Sushi Mo and Blue Toque. Food delivery from their doors to yours, City Delivery makes it all possible. And just when you thought things couldn’t possibly get any better, City Delivery also offers flower deliveries from Tecson Flowers and even over the counter medicines from The Generics Pharmacy! Imagine buying dinner for you and your sick special someone (haha!) plus flowers just because (cheesy!) Talk about a well rounded delivery service! ;)
I got to try out City Delivery’s service a few weeks back. I could have easily chosen a heavy lunch to share with friends, but I picked these desserts from Happy Cream Puff because one, I wanted to be able to take it home with me to Bulacan and two, because I got intrigued with all the talk on the deliciousness of Happy Cream Puff’s products. Thankfully, they did not disappoint. The puffs are just what the people on the internet described them to be. Light and airy, not too sweet and definitely filling. Now, I wanted to show you guys just how through photos! :P
See the tiny black grains? Those are vanilla beans AKA the ‘secret’ to Happy Cream Puff’s success.
The original cream puff. I got a box of these, plus another box of caramel coated ones.
Chocolate topped eclairs. I only ordered one box but I got two boxes (for reasons I still do not know) Haha! More to share, I guess! ;)
See the grains again? :)
I wasn’t the one who received the order, but my friend got it earlier that what I scheduled and that makes me really happy. I mean, who doesn’t like getting their food early, right? ;)
Thank you again, City Delivery and Happy Cream Puff for the awesome food and service. Special thanks also to Melody Co! :)
