Candy Wonderland at Spectrum Raffles Makati (and a giveaway!)

My favorite times are always the ones I get to spend with the family. Kap & I can dine at the nicest & poshest places, but it always feels more complete when the kids are around & they too get to enjoy a delicious meal with us & we exchange banters & pleasantries in between mouthfuls.

Sunday brunches are truly meant for family, and I’m so glad that the GOppets got to enjoy another FUNtabulous brunch buffet at our happiest place this side of Manila, SPECTRUM! <3

Spectrum Raffles Makati always has the family in mind when coming up with fun & amazing Sunday Brunch Specials. After all -and you know this is my motto, the family that eats together stays together. #FamealyDay #KainangPamilyaMahalaga



Enjoy brunch with family over a lavish spread of sumptuous international cuisines from a live culinary theater which includes Spanish, Filipino, Middle Eastern, and continental dishes to name a few. The highlight is the spectacular dessert buffet where both the young and young-at-heart can indulge in a colorful, whimsical array of luscious desserts and sweet treats. The lollipop paloozas, gummy bears, licorice delights and candy-inspired cakes will surely make any candy-holic’s day.

First on my agenda, THE SWEETS! I am after all, Sugar Spice & all things Nice! <3


One of Spectrum’s many wonders.. the dessert & candy station! Simply the best! <3



I went straight for the BACON MACARONS! <3 Ohhh la la! I am after all, Le Miz Piggy.



What beauty in all its pink glory! And generously spread with bacon bits too. The best combination of sweet & salty. My kind of pig.








Now if I were Snow White & an old hag approached me with a candied apple that looked as enchanting & as wonderful as these, I’d grab one (or two) & eat it too in a heartbeat! No matter what the cost.



and I DID! :P A sweet apple for you deary? *cackling laughter*



Can’t stop thinking of this magnificent & colorful rainbow cake with generous dollops of cream cheese in between layers! <3



Oh desserts, you are my undoing! Blast the insulin.

I know I’m setting a bad example for impressionable young minds, but I really attacked the Dessert Station first. Life is short -enjoy it! :P Anyway, who says you can’t? Normal is bow-ring. Desserts for my main. And these yummy mains for my dessert..


As you know, Sushi & sashimi are my weakness -next to sweets. Spectrum Raffles Hotel has a ruthless mix & assortment that will put your tummies to the test.



Just look at that freshness. From the sea to your tummy! ;)




And the seafood selection is not to be scoffed at!



The freshest oysters..



the fattest jumbo prawns!

For the not so wild & adventurous..


You have this fabulous garden spread in every color imaginable. Even the kids will want to eat vegetables if their veggie plates were filled with beauties such as these. Heck I was mesmerized & had a plate myself to cleanse the palate in between my “mains” & “desserts” teehee.



Just lookit. It like a cabbage patch. Except it’s a lettuce patch! ;P



Carnivores delight in the main meats! Roasted suckling pig, prime rib..






and Stuffed Turkey. At Spectrum Raffles Hotel, every day is a holiday!



Paella Valenciana. The big guns.






Chinese fares..



and Carb Overload! \m/

But deep down, I felt there was something important missing. And I was right! It wasn’t long before I rediscovered the kiddie station. Be still my wildly beating heart! <3


Boo! This cute little girl in delicious yellow stripes beat me to it by a hairline! So I waited patiently for my turn to make my own candy pizza.




Yep, you heard me right. CANDY PIZZA! At Spectrum Raffles Hotel, nothing is impossible. And nothing certainly is “just” regular & ordinary! ;) It’s FAB & FUN all the way.



But that’s not all. There’s also corn dogs & sliders & fries and what have yous! I was Gretel in the land of mesmerizing enchantment. I’m telling you, your kids will never look at you the same way after a Sunday Brunch at Spectrum Raffles Hotel. Suddenly, you are considered a SUPER HERO!
