You’ve KAP-tivated my Heart by Sinfully Circles

This Valentine’s, say “I LOVE YOU” with an Emoticake! ;)


Emoticake – when words are not enough. Cake it, don’t text it! ;P Emoticakes available at Sinfully CirclesMakati Shangri-La Manila. Decadent cake creations you love takes on a more expressive note. An emoticake makes any heartfelt messages so much sweeter. Available in Chocolate 520 php (petit) | 895 php (regular) or Cheesecake 550 php (petit) | 995 php (regular). 

When you’ve been together for as long as Kap & I have, it’s really a struggle to think of what to gift your OTL (one true love, duh) when an occasion arises.

30 years we’ve been two-gether & I’ve really run out of ideas on how to spring a surprise. Imagine with all the special occasions celebrated throughout the year: Valentine’s, Anniversary, Father’s Day, Birthday, Christmas – even the most creative person will run dry. Buti nga hindi pa nauso sa amin ang “monthsary”!

This year, Kap had a special project for the month of hearts. A custom-made display cabinet in my dining room to store all my Venetian Glasswares & Silver that’s been collecting dust out in the open. He designed it especially for me & with my specific needs in mind. So well-thought of & unique that’s it’s kinda hard for me to top it, really. This year or any other year for that matter, lol.

Came home a coupl’adays ago to Bong the Builder deep in work on a project in my dining room. I spy with my eyes a customized glass display cabinet -my surprise Valentine cum birthday gift from Kap my Kap! <3 Hopefully finished on time by mid-Feb. So excited for the turnout so I can paaaar-tey!

Kap keeps adding details like a pull-out buffet section spanning the entire width of the cabinet. At the rate we’re going, Bong the Builder will never finish my cabinet in time for my birthday, boo. But with what I can see, it’s worth the wait! ;)

So for this V-day, I thought of gifting him with something simple but straight from the heart, MY heart. That’s the best kind of gift after all, yung mula sa Puso. And what better way to get to a man’s heart than through the stomach right? ;)

Sinfully Circles of Makati Shangri-La Manila takes your troubles away on choosing what to gift your Sweetheart this Valentine’s with its series of EMOTICAKES. <3

My most favorite month of the year is HERE! February is not only my birth month, but it’s L-O-V-E month as well! That alone is cause for celebration! And what better way to EXPRESS your love than by giving your special someone an EMOTICAKE in chocolate or cheesecake flavor from Makati Shangri-La Manila‘s very own Sinfully Circles!


Wear your heart on your sleeve & declare your love with any of these 6 EMOTI-cute faces. Personalize it too with your own KAP-tion (up to 4 words). Or go with all the way with the LIMITED EDITION floral-inspired Heart Cake (pictured one above)!

So armed with my yearly greeting card and my specially-worded EMOTICAKE, I set the wheels in motion planning a romantic afternoon delight. ;)

30 years worth of memories with my one true love! <3 Nothing says I LOVE YOU more than cheesiness! ;P Every year I look forward to adding a few more cards to my growing album. Kap is a man of few words especially with declarations of love, so he tells me like it is with a well-chosen greeting card. Alam nyo naman ang Hallmark, lakas maka-hugot. Kaya damang-dama ko ang pagmamahal! ;))
