Sunday Craving: Yema

Woke up this morning, and started craving for Yema. Knowing that Yema, in ball form is now hard to find, I decided to make my own. 🙂

What is “Yema”? Yema, is a custard ball that is either coated with white sugar or caramelized sugar.

Ready to roll! 🙂

I prefer my yema rolled with white sugar because of that delicate crunch. 🙂

Flower Girl

Met this cute little girl during my cousin’s wedding. 🙂

 

 

 

What a cutiepie! 🙂

Lil’ Jordy

Took some photos of my nephew and played around with some photoshop tricks. 🙂

Hello lil’ Jordy! 🙂

 

Delos, Greece

After a pleasant walk around the town of Mykonos, my family and I hopped on a boat to go to Delos. It’s an uninhabited island near Mykonos, because the area of the island was mostly covered with historical ruins.

Ancient tile mosaics

Finally got myself a slice of the Greek version of Baklava. Nice and gooey! Mmmmm! 🙂

Pompeii, Italy

Here are a few snips from my visit to the old town ruins of Pompeii, which was destroyed by Mt. Vesuvius.

Walls with ash/lava residue.

More ruins.

That’s all! 🙂

Sorrento, Italy

When life throws you lemons, make Limoncello.

Here are some snips from one of my favorite places in Italy…Sorrento.

In Italy, lovers usually padlock their promise of eternal love by the bars of viewing points.

The small town of Sorrento.

Apparently, the reason why these lemons are so huge, is because they’re a special hybrid of an orange and a lemon.

Enter the smaller streets of the town, and you’ll see a lot of mom-and-pop stores display bottles of their prized Limoncello. The creamy looking one is Limoncello mixed with cream. Super yummy!

I’m a sucker for strawberries. Here they have the big ones and the small ones (which are wild strawberries).

After a morning stroll in the town of Sorrento, we drove off to Positano for late lunch.

Fresh Buffalo mozzarella salad. 🙂

Vongole.

Got a free shot of Limoncello to top our meal. Yum!

On our way back to the car, my sister decided to buy this decadent flaky pastry filled with egg custard! Delicioso! 🙂 *smackslips*

That’s all for now! 🙂

Rome, Italy

When in Rome…

It was packed with other tourist! 😦 But at least my family and I were still able to see a couple of places, despite the day trip.

I couldn’t resist posing with the ray of light. Hehe.

I don’t think that this was the exact spot from Angels & Demons, but again, I just had to pose with it.

Drive-by sight seeing.

Creamy gnocchi! 🙂

First pizza from Italy.

That’s all for today! 🙂
