    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…

    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.

    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…

    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.

    Uplifting Our Spirits

      Last February, we have welcomed the image of the Blessed Virgin Mary at home. We have offered our prayers and lifted up to her our heart’s desires. A week of praying the rosary truly lifted our spirits. I am but glad that my daughters, at their young age, willingly prayed the rosary with me. My elder daughter even invited some friends to pray with us. Having the Blessed Virgin Mary’s image at home brought back a lot of memories to me. I have once been a member of Block Rosary and Legion of Mary back my High School days. I was very active during my sophomore and junior year in fact. My…

    Thanksgiving: Wherever You Are!

    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…
