It’s not Easter yet, but these egg-shaped, pastel-colored chocolate treats from Villa Del Conte resurrected my craving for chocolates! Villa Del Conte Ovicinis are delicious, candy-coated dark chocolates from Padova, Italy. Each of these treats are filled with premium hazelnut cream.  The coating is crunchy and not overly sweet and the chocolates (they are made of dark chocolates so less guilt for us) are so rich and luscious when they melt inside the mouth.The pastel colors are so pretty and my and my girls just love them (baby...

Marco Polo Hotel in Ortigas is a 5-star hotel and since we had double celebration, my birthday and Father’s Day, we decided to choose this hotel. We’ve been wanting to try its indoor pool for a long time but since we wanted to try their Continental Package, we decided to delay until we had the budget for it. The Continental Package gives more perks when you check in, aside from the room and swimming pool access. Copying verbatim from Marco Polo’s website, you’ll get these. We were not able to use all these but I’ll...

Watching movies has been our family thing ever since. When there’s an upcoming movie we like, we look forward to the showing date and we talk about it a lot. My husband and I are happy that even though our kids are already growing up and are starting to find their own interests, “movies” is still our common ground. Our family loves to watch movie series most especially Star Wars! Can’t miss Star Wars in my post because as much as my husband is the original fan in the family, all of us were already hooked into it. It’s...

Last month, my father in law celebrated his birthday and usually, when we go to celebrations like these, we have potlucks. This time, I decided to make my own blueberry cheesecake because Daddy has a sweet tooth and I know a cheesecake will just be a hit in special occasions like these. Last time, I made a Dulce De Leche Cheesecake but this time, I wanted to make something classic and fruity. So here’s a very easy recipe you can use if you want to make one at home. I used very basic ingredients which can be bought from any grocery...

Have you tried joining a fitness run? It’s fun and it’s always much better when you have a buddy or someone to run with. This year, the four of us were fortunate to be able to run altogether in Robinson Supermarket’s 10th Fit & Fun Wellness Buddy Run. It’s a much anticipated event annually because there are so many participating brands which sponsor it and everyone in the family can join. We’ve seen huge families who joined, couples only, small children (even infants), and even people in wheelchair.This...

Most of us love to eat US potatoes, more than we know it. We Filipino moms won’t find our “afritada” and “menudo” complete without potatoes. And there are a hundred more dishes where we include potatoes in them. Of course, most kids we know crave for French fries! Luckily for us, these humble potatoes are considered “wonder foods”. Let me tell you some of the most important reasons why.Packed with Vitamin C, Vitamin B6, Iron, and PotassiumUS potatoes contain more vitamin C than tomatoes or sweet potatoes. Vitamin C helps...
