Foodie Alert: Breads & Pastries from Madeleine

Foodie Alert: Breads & Pastries from Madeleine


Madeleine is one of the several restaurants you can find inside Waterfront Hotel Cebu. This restaurant is the hotel’s French-inspired bread and pastry shop, making it stand out among the rest of the restaurants. You would go crazy if you are a cake-lover because this shop serves one of the best cakes in town!

Last October 16, 2015, Madeleine just launched its new set of pastries and bread. The launching also highlighted their new French Executive Pastry Chef, Benoit Andre Laboureux, who is responsible for the newfangled pastries and bread.

For this article, allow me to focus more on their pastries. They had served a lot of mouth-watering desserts for us to taste.



The only dessert not found in the photo though is the Sphere Choco Green Tea. It is a sphere of chocolate with a Green Tea flavor. 

I had the savored two of the eight delightful pastries that they have served – The Crunchy Choco Baileys and the Choco Orange Grand Marnier.


The Crunchy Choco Baileys is made from a nut and almost paste which makes this lovely dessert crunchy. It is also composed of Meat Chocolate, Coffee, Baileys, and whip & cream. The flavors blend perfectly allowing the taste of the baileys to stand out. The chocolate ball with a ganache made from meat chocolate and whip & cream was somehow too sweet. The covering of the chocolate ball was quite hard to munch on but once you have broken its shell, it’s so easy to consume it already.

For the Choco Orange Grand Marnier, the freshness of the Orange flavor shines. I like how the flavor of the fresh fruit captures my taste buds. It is also made from Dark Chocolate, Whip & Cream Marnier, and Cocoa Powder. 

Madeleine is located at the Gourmet Walk of Waterfront Hotel. It is open from 7 AM until 10:30 PM. You can view more details of this bread and pastry shop at www.zomato.com.

Have you been to Cebu City? The Queen City of the South is the one of the most popular cities in the Philippines along Manila and Boracay.

#UPCebuAfterSunset compiles ghost stories from UP Cebu

Ghost hunting, horror stories, paranormal activities… you can visit UP Cebu to experience these out-of-this-world events. Yes, University of the Philippines Cebu is one of the spooky places in Cebu where there are spiritual sightings.
I have compiled several ghost sightings in the campus as determined by some of the students I’ve talked to and conversations heard and read here and there, some of which are edited version of confessions from “Speak UP, Iskolar” published late last year. Believe it or not, according to them, these stories are true and they can attest to the veracity of these experiences.
I have categorized these stories according to the places these ghost stories happened. If you have additional stories you experienced, feel free to share those to us by sending it here.

#BalakPaMore: Cebuano Poetry in Random Corners of Cebu

Do you know where’s the Capital City of Cebuano Poetry? With no doubt in mind, it’s Cebu. Unofficially, of course.
For the past few weeks, Cebu City has been filled with Cebuano poems locally called as balak being posted in random corners like the street walls, electric posts, skywalk, and other public places!
Here are some places that Cebuano poems were posted:

1. Water Drum

This poem of Melquiadito Allego, BATHALAD (a Cebuano literary community) founder, is posted in of one of the most obscure places in Cebu City. Do you find this romantic in any sense?

This artwork of Marjorie Evasco is sitting on an abandoned tired somewhere in Lahug. Seeing this will prove that poetry is indeed becoming part of our society!
