Yesterday at Rockwell
Posted on

It has been tradition of sorts to get together with Ferry Corsten and his wife Lia whenever they’re in town. Not all the time, but at least once or twice a year.
Dutch DJ Ferry Corsten is married to a Filipina with the cutest daughter Gabby, so it’s inevitable that they will stop by Manila during a break from his many gigs.
The get-togethers are arranged by my friend Ginggay who is related to Lia Corsten.
Our first meeting was in Gaudî in December 2010.

This year we really wanted Ferry to try the new Pepper Lunch at Rockwell. We were really happy when Ginggay texted to say the Corstens were available on Thursday afternoon at 1 PM. Tell you the truth, I’m so starstruck I don’t even talk to him.

Ginggay and Penny gave Jeroen an iPhone for Christmas, so a thank you was in order

Rockwell has an ongoing Baker’s Fair at the food hall in the basement. I bought the yummiest cupcakes from Costa Brava. The caramel cupcake is better than Estrel’s!

See you next time!

Gotta go back to Rockwell for those cupcakes — They look amazing!  Is that the same place that makes the cupcakes topped with designer handbags, plants vs zombies characters, etc? By the way, happy holidays, Cecile!
