I know you’ll agree that as years pass by, providing healthy food on the family table is getting more difficult. Why? Vegetables are getting more limited as the weather becomes unfriendly to our crops, thus making our favorite veggies very expensive. Sometimes, the “sayote” I buy, are cheap but sometimes they become steep. Don’t mention potatoes, oh my, they are so expensive these days. Gone are the days when you say vegetables are affordable. I can hardly make salads these days. Then, consider the number of new...

Pesto pasta, I just found out, is one of many’s favorite alternative pasta dish from the usual red sauce and white sauce pasta. But most of us only eat pesto pasta from Italian restaurants or spaghetti houses. Luckily, Contadina makes it easy for us moms now to make our own pesto pasta dishes. I was just craving for that pesto taste when I saw my Contadina Pesto sitting comfortably on my pantry. And since I also have a stock of Jolly mushrooms, and a brick of Eden cheese, but all my meat were frozen, I thought why not make a no-meat...

It’s the start of the year once again and it’s an exciting time to freshen our wardrobes with comfortable clothes, and for me and my 2 daughters, some pretty dresses we can use for Sunday mass, birthday parties and school events. Last December, I’ve sorted out the girls’ clothes and gave the small-sized tees and dresses to their cousin, my niece and step-sister. That’s why when I buy clothes for my daughters, I make sure that they can be passed on to other kids when my kids outgrow them already. There’s...

Another year is over and a whole new one had just started. It’s a happy thing not only because we’ve survived another year, but also because all the family occasions were reset and we got to celebrate again all those happy milestones together. To make sure that my kids are protected from getting mosquito-born diseases from all those family occasions, my husband and I are very stringent when it comes to applying OFF! Insect Repellent Lotion at home and before going to any gathering, may it be with our relatives or with friends. You...

The kids will be back to school tomorrow and we will be officially back to business. Work at home, house chores and the usual stuff. Before we plunge in, I let my husband satisfy his curiosity in this vintage shop he was eyeing for so long to visit. It was somewhere K-1st Street near Kamuning Northwest Estate and Collectibles. You may click the name to be directed to its Facebook page. It was a house open to public and it was filled with vintage LPs, cds, casette tapes, toys, cards, comics and a little bit of home stuff like jars, salt...

Are you ready for life in Mars ? You might not know it but there’s an increasing interest about The Red Planet, the planet Mars, these days. Just last year, NASA had just confirmed the evidence of water in MARS and since water means life for us in our planet Earth, the thought of being able to live in MARS had peaked so much interest in many people these days. Two decades ago, on my elementary days, I have already heard about ideas that there can be life in Mars. But as far as reality is concerned, I think we were too far back then....

If you miss watching a live breathtaking show, I do suggest that you watch the LeGrand Cirque showing this December 25 to January 3 at The Smart Araneta Coliseum. Bring the whole family because you’ll surely regret it leaving anyone at home once you see the show. It has been quite a while when there was a circus shown being shown in Araneta. I only have a faded memory of a circus show I’ve seen once from another theater and it was not even a big production.LeGrandCirque was a one of a kind show because there had been no...

Going to The Araneta Center every Christmas has been an annual tradition in the family. Aside from the shopping malls surrounding the area, there’s an overall Holiday feeling when you are there. There are lights everywhere, there’s a giant Christmas tree, and of course, the yearly holiday show in Araneta Center. This year, they won’t be showing a Disney on ice show, but something different and a first-ever show. It’s the Legrand Cirque show ! I am actually looking forward to this kind of show. I remember when I...
