What My Beloved Wife Brought Home

My Beloved Wife just came back from their one-day company outing in Laiya Aplaya (Batangas). Unfortunately, their company didn't allow My Beloved Wife and her office mate to bring their families. So, I was left alone in the house for the first time.

To soothe my “sadness” for being left behind, My Beloved Wife brought home not one but two pasalubong.

Pasalubong from Melgian's Sweets

She brought home two boxes from Melgian's Sweets.

My Beloved Wife said that they bought the pasalubong in Calamba.

The small box contains espasol.

Espasol of Melgian's Sweets

Espasol is a kakanin made from rice flour and grated coconut. What's notable is the white powder at its top.

My Beloved Wife instantly liked Melgian's espasol. It has plenty of grated coconuts, quite different from the espasol being sold by hawkers at the bus stops. At the price of 75 pesos, it is should be expected that Melgian's espasol should be better than the common espasol. Well, we are not disappointed.

The big box contains the common pasalubong in the area of Batangas and Laguna. The always special buko pie!

Buko Pie from Melgian's Sweets

This buko pie costs 150 pesos.

No. I haven't tasted it yet. I am not allowed to eat this because My Beloved Wife said that we will bring this box today to My Mom as her pasalubong for Mother's Day.

I do hope that this buko pie does not disappoint. I will give you the update once we go back home.

Melgian's Sweets can be found in Halang, Calamba, Laguna.

  1. What's that? Wish I could try. And the pie looks good too!!! Happy Mum's Day to your mum. Next year, can wish your missus already? Wink! Wink! LOL!!!

    1. The espasol? It is a kind of rice cake that is sticky. I'm sure that you'll like it once you tried it. :-)

      Hahaha....I hope STP. I hope.

  2. I don't like buco pie but I like espasol. And I agree, never buy from those hawkers near the bus stops. Rip off yun e. =)

    1. And it's not just rip-off. Parang nakakatakot din bumili sa kanila. I remember during a college outing, a classmate bought a burger from a bus hawker. Ayun, may bumulagang uod sa burger n'ya.

  3. I love espasol! My mom makes them too and it's really yummy, even my kids love it. Wish I could try that one (you posted!)

    1. Wow! You're mom can make these goodies. :-) Maybe you can also learn how to make one of these so that you don't need to go Calamba.
