Fruits of Summer


There are some fruits that really reminds me of my childhood and 2 of them are here: star apple which my husband brought home, and the sampaloc which we picked on the way up to Mt. Gulugod Baboy. When I was a kid, summer vacation means having enough time to go up a tree to get these fruit, including duhat, sinegwalas, mangga, kasoy and a whole bunch of other fruits. I wish my kids can have these memories as well, and not just of summer spent at home, playing with their handhelds.

Fasting for Lent

I am on a no-meat diet for Lent, and thankfully I am surviving! When I attended a luncheon in Makati last Monday, the food was great, and perfect for me.  They served fillet of atlantic cod and it was great! For dessert, they served this pudding of some sort that looked too good to eat! I posted these photos on IG, loving the perks of my job!

A Halo-Halo Kind of Day!


It is a hot 32 degrees in Metro Manila right now and if you ask me, its just the perfect day for a halo-halo. And if its halo-halo, Razon's is one of the best. With only ice, milk and leche flan, I still cannot imagine how it can be that good. But anyway, let us just sit back, relax and enjoy this little respite from this heat!

PUPCET 2014 Results: Waiting Game

My son is one of the thousands of graduating high school students who took the PUPCET, in the hopes of qualifying to one of the country's top universities, and the only one with the cheapest tuition fee. And I am one of the thousands waiting, together with the parents, for the results of the exams to come out.  I wish it is March 24 already! My son will be celebrating his birthday on March 25th and he will have his graduation on the 27th, and I pray fervently that it will be a triple celebration.  I am looking at the PUP Website daily since Monday, in the hopes that I can will my son to pass.  So good luck to all of us who are in this waiting game together!

I will post the link to the results here once I see them! Goodluck!

My Budding Artist!


Another artwork by my daughter one school night.  She was doing this instead of answering her  Math and Sibiki homework. Hay, I now know what she loves most! I hope I can find more ways to encourage her in this passion!
