Red velvet cupcakes and a lost bet at Las Flores



Last night, after attending the dinner party in honor of the President of Singapore and his wife, I headed to Las Flores at the Fort to meet up with an old school friend for a late second dinner.

This friend and I love discussing serious things, and especially philosophies about life, in particular. So from early in the evening, I was already relishing a very relaxing evening spent discussing almost everything under the sun.

DISCUSSING EVERYTHING UNDER THE SUN

There aren't many people I can discuss everything under the sun with, but she's one of them.

And when I arrived at Las Flores, breathless and a few minutes late, she'd already ordered a cocktail and dinner consisting of gambas and tiny hamburgers, and so we plunged straight into a discussion.

In fact, we were discussing something so intensely that I actually forgot to eat.




When I looked at the photos I'd taken of the food this morning, I realized that I hadn't eaten any of it -- which was all well and good, perhaps, as I'm supposed to still be on an ayurvedic detox.

No restaurant food, no meat, no sugar, and no last night's leftovers for breakfast.

TWO IRRESISTIBLE RED VELVET CUPCAKES
AND A BET I WAS RATHER HAPPY TO LOSE

But I did break my detox fast at the end. She'd brought two red velvet cupcakes all the way from Alabang, and this is what we'd had for dessert.

Actually, I should have been the one to bring the cupcakes because we'd had a bet about something several months back, and the prize was supposed to be a dozen cupcakes.

When we'd done the wager, I had a tiny feeling I would win the bet, but she was so sure I was going to lose.

I can't tell you what the bet was, but I'm not that unhappy at all that I lost the bet.




So I was planning to rather happily buy her cupcakes, but she'd brought these absolutely luscious ones in my favorite flavor. I ate more than my share of it.

Then I said: "Let me buy you dinner instead then." I did lose the bet, after all.

And it was way past midnight when another interesting day ended in my never-ending, and never-endingly eventful Travelife.

  1. Red velvet cupckaes are my faves too. But I wonder what the bet was about? You didn't write about it in detail. ;-)
