    Okra Poppers

    My daughters eat veggies, but there are some slime-y ones that they sometimes hesitate tasting. One of which is okra and  the other is eggplant. They do eat eggplants depending on the was it was cooked. My elder daughter likes it fried or mixed with pork & “bagoong”, while my younger daughter likes it in “Paksiw” and when cooked the “torta” way. There are many ways how to incorporate eggplants in different dishes but it is quite hard to do that with Okra. My husband has recently shared a post about the health benefits of Okra and the girls were put up in a challenge. Eat Okra more often! Like…

    Tips On How To Be Cyber Secured

    Janine Berdin; A Genuine Star of this Generation

    Young and talented Janine Berdin is a semi-finalist for the 4th quarter of Tawag Ng Tanghalan in It’s Showtime. She instantly got my attention and admiration the first time I saw and heard her sang during the daily round. Her talent and X factor made me say: “this girl will make it to the semis and even to the finals.” I even got the same feeling I had when I saw Sarah Geronimo, Charice Pempengco (now Jake Zyrus) and KZ Tandingan perform years ago in their respective singing contest performances. Janine Berdin will definitely go a long way. It is evident as all her performances get standing ovation from the…

    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…
