I'm Missing this Giant Crab!

I know, right this very moment I'm wishing that I get to have this for lunch...

And look how really big it was!

This is the highlight of our family day a couple of months ago. The food! Aaaah, wish I could go back though. Yes, right.this.very.moment! Aaargh!


Sharing a Song this SUNDAY: Can't Stop This Feeling from Trolls' Movie

A Cup of Cappuccino, Anyone?

Yes, this is actually the highlight of my day today. And I'm thankful that it is starting right.

This is heavenly!

Aaaaah, weekend, Saturday, I'm so happy you finally arrived! (*grin*) Now, what to do with the weekend? We'll see!

How about you? What are your plans for this weekend?

Ramen on this HOT Summer Day? Why not!

I know, lunch break has just ended but I'm still craving for something. I want another bowl of Ramen, just like this!

Yum, yum! Now I'm thinking if there any chance I would be at the mall later? Hmmm, We'll see!

How about you? What is your go to food this HOT summer day?

Coca-Cola LIFE, What is my Verdict?

Well, first of all I'm not really a coke / softdrink drinker so I'm not so sure if this review is accurate.

Anyway, the drink is "healthy" as they've described but tasty. I agree on the tasty part. It's a bit too-sweet for my taste but this is definitely better than Coke Zero nor Coke Light because they used a healthy and natural sweetener on this type of Coca Cola drink.

Would I recommend it? For those who love softdrinks, YES, this is the best alternative out there!

Nachos, Anyone?

Summer means family bonding, beach, late night movies, long weekends and of course, food trip! And one of our discovery was this uber good plate of nachos in a coffee shop that we go to every weekends. ♥♥♥

This is so good! I can eat it everyday!

This is what I love about S.U.M.M.E.R.! We are all laid back. We sleep late. Kids are in relax mode! Make it longer, please!

A Fun Day at Real Surf, Quezon!

Guess where we were last August, 2016...

Not too white sand, but clean and smooth...

Cloudy skies but fresh air and a little bit of rain didn't hurt anyway...

Tents were ready in case we changed our minds and stayed overnight instead...

This was at Real, Quezon. We travelled for 3 hours (no traffic!) and finally arrived at this paradise.

Food was good too and not the usual that you get in beach / province...

Wish we could go back soon!

Hubby's Birthday Last Year.

Hubby's birthday last year was extra special because it fell on a weekend. So we invited family and friends to celebrate with him.

Get Together with Friends at Sentro ♥

Another fun and unforgettable get together happened last July, 2016. And this time it was really good friends from Highschool. Since we have a friend who came from the US, we decided to meet up in Sentro.

The food was delish as expected!

This binagoongan rice was the best! Oh, with chicharon? YES, please!

And the dessert, not to sweet, not too bland. Love it!

And look at us! I'm so proud to say that we've been friends for yearssssss...

As always, I had fun ladies! I really hope we get to see each other more often. Let's pray for that!


Sharing a Song this SUNDAY: True Colors from Troll's Movie. ♥

Oh, I super love this movie especially the movie soundtrack. Check out my favorite song...

Lovely song, isn't it? Love, love, love it!

Good Friends, Great Food and Fresh Air in Tagaytay

One of our unforgettable get togethers last year was in Tagaytay. It was such a great day and it was so nice to see our friends again after so many months of not seeing each other!

These are the women whom I look up to. They are the best!

And look, here's a proof of how much I enjoyed the get together and how much it was a great day...

Aaaah, I'm missing the cold weather in Tagaytay already!

Now that it's summer, I'm pretty sure it is not THAT cold now, but still, fresh air? Who wouldn't so NO to that!?

Looking Forward to our Weekend and Nature.


Ever since our summer started, we've been checking out outdoor activities and so loving it!

Green grass, trees, fresh air, these are the things that money can't buy!

I've been hooked to nature ever since I was a kid but I'm so, so glad that my family agrees. So now that I have them, we go as a family to explore simple things, explore our surroundings and can't help but feel grateful for these blessings. ♥♥♥

A Game that Gives you a Chance to Learn about the Bible...

So here's another wonderful testimonial by one of the players of my favorite game, Wisdomantics.

Oh, look, here is another wonderful feedback from a player of Wisdomantics - Ms. Shirley Ann Knuckles. I love the features that she mentioned here:

- Based on the Book of Proverbs
- A wonderful game because it gives you a chance to learn about the Bible (where will you find a game that can beat that!?)
- You can play the game by yourself as a single player (and I must add, you can play it with your friends!)
- It is a great game and she highly recommends it

I've been recommending this game for several months now. It is truly a great game to play with friends, with your young and not-so-young kids, with your family. It helps with family bondings.

And now that long weekend is coming very, very soon, I know you would want to try it yourself too!

So, download my favorite game, Wisdomantics, NOW... And don't forget to spread the word, peeps!

For iphone users...

For Android users...

Enjoy the game and let me know what you think! (*wink*)(*wink*)

French Toast and Cappuccino for Breakfast

Oh, I'm craving for a good breakfast today. I would love to have this again...

But I can have it this weekend! Aaargh, I can't wait. A few more days to go. Or maybe I should get this breakfast tomorrow on my way to work? What do you think?

Well, I think I deserve it, right?! Well, we'll see! (*wink*)

A Dinner Date with Kindle :)

Well, as a busy Mom and a programmer, I make it a point to go out by myself. And once in a while, I would bring my kindle with me and read.

Yes, I had a date with my Kindle a couple of months ago. And boy, I had fun!

Here's what I had for dinner...

Wished I could have more though. The serving was too small. LOL! Oh well, maybe I can schedule another "me time" soon now that it's summer! What do you think? (*wink*)

More on Reminiscing about Our Little Girl's 7th Birthday Party

Ok, now that I've started blogging about remembering my little girl's 7th birthday, I can't help but start a post again, this time about the table centerpieces that Hubby made for the party. Since it was a "Camp Rock" themed birthday party, we decided that instead of table numbers, we made it "musical instruments" table. Now it made the party even more interesting!

So, the "instruments" table were the following...

The maraccas table.

The grand piano table.

 And, look at the "guitar table" at the far side of this photo...

There are other more tables (but didn't get a photo of all of them, too bad!) but, there was so much like a musicians friend cymbals' table too.

I love that the theme is just perfect for my family because we all LOVE MUSIC so much! My husband (as I keep on blogging about him and his music) loves to play several instruments. I'm pretty sure he will be exploring those cymbals that we even found online soon! The eldest plays the piano, while the youngest is planning on taking guitar lessons this summer. As for me, well, I love listening to them play and listening to beautiful songs as well.

I'm glad that summer is here. It is the perfect time to catch up on their lessons on musical instruments. I can't wait to hear them play again, soon!

TODAY is the Offical START of 2017 SUMMER!

Yey, yey, yey!

So, I'm posting my kid's latest flip flops.

This symbolizes summer for me. It is what they will wear for the beach, our adventures out of the city, or just spending time at home. Flipflops are my fave. And so are my kids'!

How about you? What is your summer's symbol or reminder? Would love to hear from you! (*wink*)

Sumptuous Buffet Lunch for our Family Day!

I'm sure you would notice by now that we always celebrate Family Days every month. This time, it was a sumptuous buffet lunch with family and friends.

Oooh, look at the salad...

As a health conscious convert, this part was my favorite among all the other food in the buffet.

But, for the Hubby who loves dessert so much, this one is his favorite...

And look, Hubby and I right before the lunch started...

FUN, FUN, FUN day with family and friends! Looking forward to more! (*wink*)
