    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…

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.

    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…

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…

    1st of May

    The month of May has always been special to me. It is but an extra ordinary month since I was a kid. First of May, besides being the Labor Day, is the feast of St. Joseph the Worker, our barangay’s patron saint. I have lots of happy “fiesta” memories. Several group of friends at our place would set up parlor games with prizes and there were a few times I took home cash prizes. =) Besides the feast, May 2 is my Dad’s birthday. May 3 is one of my nephew’s birthday too. He’s someone my Mama and I took care of when he was a baby to his toddler…

    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…

    My Tabletop Electric Oven

    My tabletop electric oven was a gift. I have been eyeing a beautiful oven from the appliance center for a long time but saving to get it will take a lot longer. So, with a friend”s suggestion, and since I am not really planning on using it for business purposes (using it now just for my kids), I told Ronald (yes, he”s the financier for this oven) that I would go for this one. I have been Pinterest inspired! As soon as I have read the manual for this tabletop oven, I started baking! I have had my share of baking failures but have a atoledo.com lot of successful ones too. Most…

    Popcorn!

    I love popcorn as a child and now that I have 2 kids..I still make it a point for us to enjoy home made popcorn. There are times that we don’t have any in stock so we end up buying the flavored ones. The cheapest that I liked a lot is the one from Jack & Jill – caramel puffs! Here’s a bowl of home cooked popcorn – good thing that the Bonus brand I got from SM Hypermarket has 2 sachets of cheese flavored powder. The kids loved their afternoon snack. I’m again joining:
