I decided to clean up my lair today and I found this empty box of Pastel. It was given to me about a month ago. Pastel is a yema filled pastry whose texture is similar to ensaymada. A very light and fluffy bun with a solid burst of yema inside. I enjoy it with plain black coffee.  If you're traveling south of the country, try to pick some up. They are also available in some native specialty stores.

VJ-and-EP Pastel buns are also available at Rustans Supermarkets (i.e. Katipunan Avenue branch).

i regret not going to Camiguin. Was at the airport in CDO about to board, then my sister had to return to MNL. Hope to go soon.
