    Eggplant With Pork Bits Adobo

    In one of my previous posts, I have mentioned that my kids eat eggplant veggie. They only differ in how they prefer it to be cooked. Another challenge for the Mom, right? To be honest, I really do not have issues in making my girls eat vegetables. They got used to it. There is always a certain kind of veggie in the dinner table. When I saw this Eggplant Adobo dish on TV, it caught my attention. During weekdays, I get to watch a morning show called “Magandang Buhay”. It is hosted by celebrity moms, Melai Cantiveros, Karla Estrada and Jolina Magdangal. In one of their most recent episodes, they…

    FMS Photo A Day: September 4 – Sauce : Filipino Dish

    I’d like to also share here my entry to FMS Photo-a-day for September 4, a Filipino dish called Laing. That in the photo is how I want it to be, a little saucy. Most of the time, this Filipino dish is spicy but I didn’t crush those chili. My hubby did when he took some on to his plate, though. Laing is one of the many delicious dishes that hails from the region of Bicol. My Mom was a true-blooded Bicolana from the province of Camarines Sur, in Buhi town. Bicol is geographically big, there are several versions of Laing out there and almost all, spicy! This Filipino dish is made…

    Three Day Prompt in a Post For July FMS Photo A Day

    I decided to make a single post for the three day prompts as I do not want to flood your inbox, my subscribers. I also want to keep this short but as interesting as it can be. For July 2, the prompt is Furry. And the hashtag to use for this is #FMS_furry, in case you are doing it via Instagram. This particular photo of Roey holding new furry friends was taken at the Enchanted Kingdom in Sta. Rosa, Laguna. She was terrified as the Wheel of Life reached its peak, especially when it stopped to load and unload people. She eventually got used to that fear until she conquered…

    July FMS Photo A Day

    I have made a promise to myself that I’ll make sure to complete all of this year’s FMS Photo A Day prompt in my Instagram account, but come June, I failed already.

For those who has Instagram accounts, who wants to unleash their creativity and wants to join in the fun, join us! Here is July’s prompt list along with the corresponding hashtags to use.

    BTS Fan Art

    My daughter K, @heyitskea on Instagram, learned about an app she can use for digital arts. So, she decided to try it and installed AutoDesk Sketchbook. Then there was the image of her being so busy with a few little artworks. She made a few until she decided to try something a little complicated, a BTS fan art as she call it. This one below took a little time and really challenged her because she did not use any stylus, just her fingers and mobile phone. She is a fan of BTS, and her bias is Kim Tae-hyung, also known by his stage name V. K may have thought of challenging herself…

    2017’s Instagram Best Nine

    Here is my 2017’s Instagram Best Nine. I intentionally allowed myself to forget to post my Best Nine of 2017 on Instagram.  Just feeling a little lazy, that is. Plus the fact that I get to be forgetful sometimes. Also, I am not quite impressed with the results the Best Nine App came up with. Ha!Ha! Kidding aside, it would not have given me this result if these are not the real images that garnered more likes. If you ask me, of course, I am thankful for all the likes these nine images received. Thank you as well to the followers and co-players for FMS Photo-a-day challenge for the likes on…

    Pinterest Bids Farewell to its LIKE Button

    Giving emphasis on the “Save” button, Pinterest has decided to remove its “Like” button. For some accounts, this has already been implemented and will soon roll out to the rest of the Pinterest users. “The No. 1 challenge is getting people to understand that Pinterest isn’t a social network,” CEO Ben Silbermann told Bloomberg. So, what happens to those beautiful pins you have liked? Pinterest will save the pins users liked on a separate, secret board called “Your Pinterest Likes”.   At least, those pins you liked and have not decided to save yet are still saved for you to easily go back and refer to when needed.  Should you desire…

    5 Day Gratitude Challenge

    I was tagged by a dear friend, Joy of  JoyRide and so I decided to create a 2-in-1 post at first. To not lose the momentum, I guess. Sept. 14, I am grateful for.. – the person who found Nhald’s wallet. Our faith in humanity is still there because of him/them. – the ability to recognize something good out of an obvious mistake. We got the chance to go out together as partners, it was quite an adventure. – the simple fact that my kids’ have the ability to take care of each other while Mom & Dad is out. Sept. 15. I am grateful for… – an additional rest day…

    Breakfast: Banana-Raisin Oatmeal Cookie Cups

    One morning, I decided to serve both K & Roey Banana oatmeal. K ended up eating both servings and Roey ate Bananas instead. K got used to eating anything you serve her, believe it or not. My Mama has really helped a lot in her eating habits. She may be skinny but I am thankful that she is not sickly as well. Both my kids, actually. Thanks to HIM! Because, health is definitely a priority for me, and then education. Roey, on the other hand, is the picky eater, she is not skinny though. She has just learned ( I don’t know where!) to say no to any food she…

    Pinterest-ing!

    My Pinterest account has been in existence for quite some time now. It has caught my attention with the graphics/photos in it. I still can recall that everything has started as a hobby and now, Pinterest for me has become Pinterest-ing! It is not just PInterest though, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram too! In short, these social media websites are part of the reasons why we have a lot to be thankful for.  I remember to have created boards for photography, fashion (kids and ladies), sewing & DIY ideas, kitchen & baking supplies and tools, inspiring quotes and what I named: Dream House Project.  If you already have a Pinterest account,…
