25 February 2009

Author's Note:
I was browsing through my old files and realized I wasn't able to post some travel stories in this blog, so for a few days, please allow me to wind of time a bit and share these stories.

Most of our companions left in the morning of 25 February, and because it was just the three of us left (Malou, brother, and I), tito Bingbong thought it would be a good idea for us to stay in one of the hotels in Dumaguete City, so we could also roam around and enjoy the city. Tanjay City (where we stayed at for the last two nights) was approximately 35 kilometers away, and since they, too, have lives to live (so to speak), we all figured out it was best for us to stay in Dumaguete City. We were very humbled that even the hotel room was shouldered by tito Bingbong, and we really couldn't thank them enough for their generosity and hospitality.

Anyway, the soonest time we arrived in Obdulia's Business Inn, brother and I quickly unpacked our bags and chose the ones we still have to wear. We weren't able to wash any of our clothes, and we were running out of fresh clothes. It was time for us to find a laundry shop or else we would be flying back to Manila in danggit smelling clothes. :)


We were able to find a laundry shop, and since we were already out, we figured we should roam around as well. Along Silliman Avenue (where we found the laundry shop) was the Chantilly Cake Haus, and I asked brother if we could stop for a while to have a peek inside. Basically, it was just satisfying the curiosity of going inside, because when I first visited Dumaguete City in 2008, I just saw the building. I have learned that this pastry shop has been one of the well known shops in Dumaguete, so I just wanted to come inside.

Taken from the Chantilly's website, Chantilly is a French word that meant "sweet cream." Established in 1997, this food shop has been known for its cakes and pastries, but they also serve sandwiches and pasta. Aside from this shop in Dumaguete City, they also have another branch in Bacolod City, Negros Occidental.


The look inside. It was very homey, the lighting was good (most are natural light), and it was really a nice place to have some cake and coffee.


Cakes. What's good about this bakeshop was that they had the big cake for a group of people to share, and they also had the mini cake for those who are solo. Prices weren't expensive, too!


Baked Goodies. For those who don't fancy the cake, they have the brownies, and other pastry bars.


Glazed Carnabal. There was this one particular food item from this bakeshop that people say one should eat, but it was already sold out. I decided to get these two remaining bags of Glazed Carnabal (sweetened taro chips), because it was something new for me. I decided to take it home.


Mini Cakes. With the mini cake prices below 100 pesos each, I seriously cannot understand why I didn't give one a taste.

Oh yes, we still had to go to an internet cafe and update our sites and read emails, and brother still has to come back to the hotel by 6pm so he could prepare for the mass (it was Ash Wednesday), and I had to prepare for my date with the ex boyfriend (who lives in Dumaguete City).

Writing this one saddened me that I wasn't able to taste their cakes, but then again, I always tell myself that things that didn't happen gives one a chance to do it the next time. I sure hope to travel back to Dumaguete so I can have a taste of not just this, but foods from other restaurants, too!
