We’ve been wanting to try Steveston Pizza in UP  Town Center since we first stepped in this mall. Not only because the restaurant’s name is similar to my husbands’ but also because we wanted to try something new. Finally, a chance to sample Steveston came and the experience was so delightful I know I had to share it. Reminiscing the flavors we tried last time as I write this blog post makes me crave and plan to go back very soon.Steveston Pizza is a franchise of the popular and multi-awarded pizza company in Vancouver,...

Being beautiful and feeling beautiful can be as easy or as difficult as women can think of it. In as much as “beauty is in the eyes of the beholder”, I also believe that  beauty is in the heart of the “beholdee” (I’m not sure if there’s a word like that, but you know what I mean). Although I can see that many women still perceive beauty as having that svelte body and pretty face, I believe that most of us had already gone past this superficiality.As a mom of two young ladies, it is a challenge for...

Being a work at home / full time mom is enough to make me live a full day every day. I’m lucky to be able to sleep for six hours. I’m not complaining though. God is good and life is great because I get to see my family as much as I want to. But although my spirit strong, my flesh can sometimes be weak. You know, I get sleepy too during the day. Imagine we need to be awake by 4AM and we can only sleep at night earliest 10PM. Coffee is my companion during the day and it gives me that extra boost to stay energetic as I juggle...

Having the kids eat breakfast very early in the morning was a daily feat for me. I tried different strategies just to avoid me nagging on them daily to have something to eat before going to school.Some of my strategies which all FAILED were : 1. Cooking their favorite food (you know how kids are, they love hotdogs and chicken and nuggets) – BUT they can’t just eat these kinds of food everyday so I had to find another way. 2. Open the tv while they eat – I thought this will make them stay at the table and eat. What happened...

Doing the laundry can be a daunting task specially if you are not satisfied with how your clothes end up after you get them from the clothesline. Making our clothes smelling fresh is very important and that’s how I gauge it if I was really able to wash the clothes properly.A month ago, I went to the mall and had to commute. In the jeepney I rode, there were some student passengers who wore white uniforms. They looked clean to me but I smelled something unpleasant. The bad thing is that the students were girls. They may have looked...

Sugar for me is a true gift from the Lord. I couldn’t imagine living life without sweets and I will regret it if my daughters will ever experience being hindered from enjoying sweet foods. But we all know that sugar intake should be limited even if you are the healthiest and the fittest athlete who can burn all the sugar they want to when they work out. With my husband who has diabetic family history, the risk is much higher. The sad part is, you know, that when you try to limit your sugar, the more you crave for it, right? It’s...

Last August 31, I was lucky to witness an event which is close to my heart and to every Filipino’s heart. SM Hypermarket Streetfood Festival! Growing up in Barangay Unang Sigaw in Balintawak, Quezon City, I remember how streetfood was everywhere specially when it is the baranggay fiesta. This streetfood festival brings back good and fun memories with my neighbors, my distant cousins and playmates and “kababata”. And who wouldn’t like street food? For me, these food transcends economic status, gender and regionality....

We were once refill ink users and it didn’t take much time before we realized that we aren’t really saving a lot. At first, it was fun, being able to print out a lot but within a month or two, my kids projects looked dirty as the ink we used smudged a lot. We also noticed that the colors were not as vivid as we expected. When it was time to refill the ink, it became a bit stressful to remove the cartridges and get our fingers dirty. No wonder that when we went to the refilling station, their place was also dirty with ink. HP...
