Bizu celebrates Mother's Day

"I'll always be your Mommy even if you're married and you'll someday be a Mommy yourself..."

That's my Mommy's constant line whenever she would nag me about certain things and I would tell her not to worry because I'm a grown woman. Up until this day, Mommy never fails to call me at exactly 7PM to ask for my whereabouts. I never really got off my curfew as Mommy would start looking for us (yes, Paul included) and wouldn't sleep until she knows we're on our way home. She would always ensure that our helper would prepare breakfast for us and that I have lunch to bring to work. Initially, I thought my Mom must be the most protective Mom in the world...that was until I saw how my Amah (grandmother) was when Mommy went to Japan for a vacation. Amah would call me every single day asking if I was able to talk to Mommy online. On days where her favorite radio announcer would announce that it's a rainy day in Japan, she would call and ask if Mommy was able to bring an umbrella. That's my Amah who's 70 being equally just as protective to my 50-something Mommy. Indeed, a mother's love starts from the moment you are in her womb and this goes on for a lifetime.

Yesterday, Mommy got her early Mother's Day gift from Bizu -- our favorite go-to places for yummy foccacia bread, Croque Monsieur sandwich and French macarons. Two years ago, Bizu was very thoughtful as they sent Papa a box of Chocolate Cigars for Father's Day and this year, it was Mommy's turn to receive a special gift from them.

Mommy got a pretty looking cake called Paris-Brest which I'd say was perfect for her as she is not a fan of icing-covered cakes. The Paris-Brest is made of Almond Pâte à Choux and has the same bite and texture as that of an eclair and my favorite, profiteroles. Light and fluffy, it's filled with rose cream, sweet lychee and fresh raspberry. I can also taste a hint of white chocolate in every bite.

On Mother's Day, all guests who purchase this cake or any Grande size cake from Bizu will receive a special Mother's Day gift package which includes a fully-filled tote bag from Good Housekeeping Philippines, a Mario Badescu’s skin care product, Lancome premium items and Leg Love leggings. My mom has received a Good Housekeeping tote bag before and it was filled with a lot of products that has surely delighted her on her special day. I'm sure all mommies out there will love this treat too! What a great treat if you ask me! You get to enjoy this delicious cake and surprise your mom with all these great items too. Definitely a great gift idea, dear readers.

Bizu is located at the G/F of the Promenade Mall, Greenhills Shopping Center, San Juan. They also have branches located at Greenbelt 2, Alabang Town Center, St. Luke BGC and Glorietta 4.
