    Be Moved By Miracle in Cell No.7 Movie

    My friend Pia recommended this movie to me when she tagged me in her Facebook status sometime last week. In her stat, she has declared how she has been touched by the movie that she had to suffer from a headache after crying (because of the movie). From then, I searched for info and photos of Miracle in Cell No.7 and honestly got a lot more curious. Since last week was the Holy Week, I grabbed the opportunity to work for additional hours. We stayed at home and only until Sunday did we went out and attended the “Salubong” and Easter Sunday mass. I forgot about the movie already. My…

    Saying I’m Sorry

    I have recently found a TV show for kids – Sheriff Callie’s Wild West! The very first episode we have watched (Roey and I) has this song entitled “Saying I’m Sorry!” And it has become part of Roey’s favorite songs list from then on. Both my kids love to sing and that particular song is something any Mom will recommend. It is not just so easy to sing, it is also meaningful. Meaningful in the sense that it teaches the importance of saying “I’m Sorry”. Educating my kids with good manners and values is on top of my parenting priorities. I am not alone in this for sure. Here’s the lyrics…

    5 things a simple SMILE can do

    You have heard that “Laughter is the best medicine!” but did you ever wonder why? You must have already found the answer from Google or from a medical book maybe. Admittingly, since I have had dentures years back, I feel awkward when I smile. So, when I give a polite type of smile, I (most often than not) also let my eyes work – a wink, a smiling eyes or a quick raise of the eyebrows. But sometimes, I feel that I am not really giving it (smile and what it meant in whatever moment there is) 100%. I am haunted by that feeling for sometime, really! Especially when I…

    A Prayer

    A beautiful female actress, Denise Laurel, posted this prayer on her Instagram account and I cannot help but like it. Love it, actually! In fact, I copied the prayer and made a new layout for it using Photoshop. (Yes! I have Photoshop again, yay!) Okay, not layout, just a different background and font. =) Here, I am but glad to share the prayer in my blog too.   This prayer moved me. I wish someone would be “awaken” as well. I even think that this is another prayer you can actually say everyday. Hope this post made you smile and at least feel good.

I should only do one. GIVE!     Just before you close your eyes and lay to bed for sleep, GIVE THANKS!

    To Do List: Yes I Can!

    I have been joining FatMumSlim’s Photo a Day Challenge and so far, I have not skipped a day. Yay! If I’d be able to complete the January challenge, I know I can do it for the rest of the remaining months too! As per my daughter K, “Push it Mom!” Today’s challenge, or theme is actually a “To Do List”. And this is what I have submitted: I think I came up with this idea from a thought that came into my mind Saturday afternoon as I was walking back home after I bought something from a nearby store… these are better said (or written) in Filipino as it gives…

    Mother

    Last May 6 was my Mama’s 70th birthday …could have been, I mean. I thought of scrapping to give tribute to her. Credits to Studio Flergs and LorieM for the paper and embellishments I used.  Here was my FB post then…   Happy birthday MAMA! I know, if you were only alive and with us today, you would have been so happy to celebrate your 70th year. I could have granted a great wish of yours or perhaps brought you to a place you’ve never been. These will no longer happen, but in my heart, I know that you are in bliss! You are in a much happier place than…

    Friend For Keeps

    “A friend is someone whole reaches for your hand, but touches your heart.” Kathleen Grove   I have been inspired to try back my love for photography as soon as I got my Cherry mobile Flare phone. Together with my childhood friends, we visited a resort in Bulacan. The kids had so much fun especially Roey who got to play again with Miggy. Miggy is just almost a year older than her and the two get along pretty well. I hope that their friendship, just like their Moms’ last a lifetime.

    In the Kitchen: Beef Kare-Kare

    I have cousins who do really good in terms of cooking. There may not be a chef in our clan but a lot of them (excluding me since I only have the interest but not the skill) really can make delicious dishes. We have been teasing one cousin to put up a catering business – this excites me in all honesty. I just wish she would soon agree and have the guts and capital to start the business. I have been wanting to serve the family something out of the usual dish we have everyday and so I thought of Kare-Kare. Kare-Kare originated from Pampanga, Philippines. Kapampangans use either oxtail, tripe or…
