Photo A Day Challenge for June, 3 in 1

I am having difficulty with internet connection so I missed half of May with FatMumSlim’s photo-a-day challenge and the first 2 days of June too. But who said I could not post a catch up? None can stop me now as I decided to join through blog posts…and here’s for the first 3 days of June!

 

B is for BEACH!

My girls and I enjoyed a beach in Batangas mid of May and here’s one of the best (I think) shots I have for something B!

A moment…

This moment is priceless for me as my little Roey dear overcome her fear of being in the pool (without me holding her). She has also managed to be brave enough and enjoyed the slides all by herself.

And for June 3, theme: On My Table…

Here’s another sweet summer treat which we finished in no time! We love the new flavor – Mantecado!

Please pardon me if I may have to do another catch up post again in the future. Ha ha! And I will ensure to post NEW photos instead of latest ones. =D

In the Kitchen: Merienda Galore

What is one best way to spend time with the family? During merienda!

Afternoon snacks besides night chats is one part of the day I enjoy spending with my kids. My kids don’t have high levels of appetite (especially my elder daughter) but they have all the thrills and giggles whenever I serve something for them. We call it “Takaw-Tingin” here in the Philippines. It is summer and kids are out for vacation and as we all know, kids nowadays are unstoppable. They make it necessary for us parents to prepare something new for them, be it food, games, toys or unlimited number of activities so as to keep their nerves and minds busy! That somehow makes parenting one best way to explore and continue to learn. Hey! I have to somehow dig the internet for creative ideas from snacks to kiddie activities. Here’s one I imitated from a Pinterest pin – a unique way to serve ice cream!

Maybe I can say that our country is one of the many places where you can go on food exploration and pig out! Since kids this summer is most of the time at home, we bond by eating together. Check out these afternoon merienda I served them one time. You will definitely crave too!

New Flavors: Selecta Ice Cream

ice cream

We are beating the summer heat!

Either we go out swimming or just chill and spend time at home, we make sure to keep our cool! One way of doing so is enjoying cold drinks and desserts – ice cream on top of the list! We have tried the new flavors of Selecta ice cream, Mrs. Fields Chocolate Chip Cookie and Oreo Rocky Road. And to tell you honestly, these tubs were empty in less than 48 hours. It was not quite fast since I get to enjoy these new flavors with just 2 kids. We all love the new flavors, hmmm… I personally have enjoyed the Mrs. Fields  Chocolate Chip Cookie than the other flavor. These flavors are (I think) limited and some grocery stores don’t have them yet so when you guys got the chance to find one, grab the tub!

Since this post is not a review, let us keep my ratings a secret! Haha!

You have been given a hint!

 

Selecta Ice Cream Flavors: Beat The Heat This Summer

We now have more than a dozen ice cream tubs since the start of the summer. This is my kids’ first choice on how to beat the heat this summer. Well, summer is almost over but it is not too late to share how delicious these ice cream flavors are from Selecta.

These two new ice cream flavors are included in Selecta Hershey’s collection and my choices. I have loved Rocky Road and Double Dutch ever since the first time I tasted the said flavors but just like any one, I too would like to go out of what I consider as “ice cream comfort zone” haha! I eagerly bought the Selecta Hershey’s Collection: Reese’s Peanut butter Cups and I tell you, it didn’t last 24 hour period. I so loved how it tasted. I get to feel refreshed having ice cream for dessert and at the same time enjoyed the sweet delectable peanut butter cups. Right there and then, I decided to grab another flavor from the Hershey’s Collection and had Hershey’s Kisses. My elder daughter enjoyed it more than I did maybe because I was expecting it to be as good as the Reese’s flavor. I somehow forgot that even if they’re both from Hershey’s, these two are totally different flavors. Just like the first tub from the collection, Hershey’s Kisses didn’t last for more than 3 days inside the freezer.

The next time we were at the supermarket, they didn’t have the Hershey’s collection so I opted to get the family’s all time favorite flavor instead: Selecta Very Rocky Road. Our summer was really something else, this year was amazingly hot but thanks to these cold desserts available in the market, we were somehow able to beat the heat!
