    Jackie’s Food Hub

    I’m all support for a dear friend’s business venture. I have seen how she has diligently planned for this to come true. People from the North, let me inform you that Jackie’s Food Hub has opened its first 2 food carts at Howmart Road, Brgy. Apolonio Samson. My friend Yang and her partner had their dreams slowly turn to reality. Jackie’s Food Hub offers Sisig, Lechon Kawali and Nachos for only Php50. Japanese siomai and pork siomai is also available at a very affordable price. Yang also offers her very own, home-made condiments such as shrimp paste, Chili paste, Garlic oil, Ginger oil, Pickled chili, and Pinakurat (Spiced Vinegar). All these…

    Dear Millennial, Be Responsible

    Dear Millennial, We are amazed of your generation’s achievements, but you have a lot more of what’s called Millennial dreams. We are genuinely happy that many young people like you has proven more than just being stereotypes. You have a vision. You are a dreamer. But then, life is not just about being a dreamer. It is not life at all if you just kept dreaming – you have to wake up and go get that dream become a reality. Something must be done to achieve these so called dreams. Along with the actions needed for such achievements, you have to be protected. Some kind of “assurance and protection” is necessary. Getting…

    The Beautiful Cup

    We all have complaints every now and then. But then, there are moments you realize it on your own (or with a help of a loved one or a friend) that good things always outweigh the bad. That is when we realize that blessings are all over us, in different forms and sizes, senses and uses. And just like cups, we have to let the beauty of these blessings come out. So, we can share and be a blessing to another. And at the end of the day, everything just proves that GOD is so amazing!       *Photo from Pinterest

    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…

    Everyday is a blessing!

    No matter how yesterday was, everyday is a blessing! Since we receive a blessing that moment we open our eyes each morning, it is but right to be thankful. I must admit, I have only fully accepted this fact when I became a Mom. It was a futile realization I must say. So, if stress has made me skip saying a prayer before bedtime, I have to say it upon waking up. The thank you prayer has to include that I was awakened, I was me as I was yesterday and have another chance to make myself better. This time, it is not just for myself but for my family,…

    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…

    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…
