Red Wine

I dont drink much and when I do, it is mostly at home with my husband. One evening last week and for a lack of things to do, we pop open this red wine and watched the news. It was one of those moments when I realized that I married the right person because we talked. About the news, and about everything and anything and it was fun. And it felt like home.

He finished the bottle. I went to sleep.

Thank You, Lord!

If thank you is the only prayer that you said, it will be enough.

I thank you sincerely, for my family.

Put A Henna Mo!

Getting a tattoo is in my list of 100 things I want to do. But I am still looking for the One tattoo but so far I have not yet made up my mind. Seeing this stall made me curios, but not enough to make me step inside and look. The title by the way, is a play on one of the most cuss language here, he he.
But their designs look scary to me!

Plato D' Boracay

These pictures were taken July last year when the family went to Boracay. We had our lunch at Plato D'Boracay at D' Talipapa. You buy your meat, fish and vegetables at the market and then have it cooked for a fee at one of the restaurants like Plato D'Boracay. The sign made me choose them.The food was great. I dont know if it was just because we were hungry after all those swimming and because you really eat a lot when you are at the beach, but we liked all of it!

My only problem was this grilled pork I bought weighed a kilo but what was served to us was a lot less! Even my mother and husband noticed it too. We just didnt ask them because I didnt want to make a scene. And then I saw one of their employees having grilled liempo for lunch when ours was the only food they cooked!
So if ever you get to have your meals cooked here, count how many pork strips you gave and tell them not to slice it. That way, you get what you paid for.

Happiness

"I love being married. It's so great to find that one special person you want to annoy for the rest of your life."

My Treasure

I am very lucky woman to be blessed with a wonderful husband and three wonderful kids. Everything else in my life is a bonus, as long as my family is healthy and happy. And this picture below is one that I will treasure forever!
I had the best Mother's Day ever during my daughter's 7th birthday swimming party celebration!

P if for Packed Lunch

Last month we went to Batangas for a wedding and to maximize our visit we went for a swim. We were going home to Manila after swimming so we cannot bring any cooking pots and pans with us to the resort. My sister's mother in law wowed me with her skill in making packed lunch for us! Here are the photos of how she packed one whole pot of rice for us!

She used banana leaves which made the rice tastes better too!
