    Candlelight: 2013 Earth Hour

      We have once again participated to this year’s Earth Hour. And just like with the part year’s “tradition”, it gave us (me and my kids) a good feeling in doing so. We once again had a little fun while we “Dare the World to Save the Earth”, as what the Eath Hour Community featured. For an hour, for just last March 31, we turned off the lights and lit up a candle. We somehow, in out own little way, took part of history. It just makes me wonder, if millions of people around the globe can do it, and whole-heartedly participated in it, why not make this particular event…

    Christmas Cake

    With my electric oven, I can’t deny that I’ve been inspired to create and bake goodies for my kids. Aside from being able to make cookies and cupcakes for my elder daughter’s school snack, I also tried making muffins for my toddler. Healthy muffins that is. Something that excites her everytime and wouldn’t mind eating. Last Christmas, my cousins invited us to join their annual Christmas party and exchange gift. Who would say no? Not me! My kids were totally excited! We all love family gatherings and fun parties like this one. Since there were several families attending the event, a potluck was suggested. I was asked to bring something…

    What more exciting for kids than to see Barney in a show, live! My elder daughter grew up loving Barney and it goes the same with the younger one.

It was Barney and Mommy here of course who taught them the song “I Love You, You Love Me”. We have seen recorded Barney show in DVD format but not a live one yet. My elder daughter got to experience Disney On Ice show few years back and so…

    My childhood friend married a US citizen but their family is based in Japan. It just proves well that wherever you are, you can still celebrate Thanksgiving and any other celebrations, right? Look at these photos and you’ll definitely feel the spirit of Thanksgiving. Thanks Marilyn for the photos. It was when I worked for Convergys that I learned more about Thanksgiving Day. That it is being celebrated every 4th Thursday of November and it’s well celebrated just like Christmas. For some, it’s more grand. And, did you know that the first Thanksgiving Day lasted for 3 days? Interesting, right? Baked or roasted turkey is normally the center of attraction…
