I don’t watch much of Tagalog movies, not that I am partial to foreign movies, but it’s just that there are not so many good Tagalog movies these days. One of the exceptions though is when the cast includes John Lloyd Cruz. Talaga naman kasi ang cute and so enigmatic. He hasn’t been doing that much movie compared to his previous years and the last one with Sarah Geronimo, I did not watch it because of the bad reviews. Just this week, I missed watching Tagalog rom-com so I decided to watch My Amnesia Girl in Iflix starring...

I’m all for fun kiddie parties, may they be grand or simple. For me, the memories of being with your friends, your parents and relatives, in your birthday, do last forever. I, for example, my father and mother separated when I was five years old, so no parent to give me these kinds of parties. But my Lola who took care of me, would always cook pancit and gather our neighbor kids in front of our house, and there we would have these small parties. I would wear my beatiful dress and I was always happy to be with my little friends. You...

I saw this cookbook by Marietta Subong aka Pokwang and I felt the timing was just perfect. I was stressed that day after finishing a pile of laundry and I asked my husband that we go out and eat and do something fun. You know, books are my passion (a bit) but I wasn’t in the mood for heavy lit that day and cookbooks and cooking magazines are becoming my go-to whenever I wanted to relax. And I saw this book in National Bookstore, pink and catchy with its title: Patikim, Pokie!For the price of P225, this cookbook is a worthy buy....

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...

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...

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...
