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....

Just how OC should a mother be when it comes to personal hygiene and home cleaning ? For me, nobody can ever call us over protective when it comes to these matters. Because germs and bacteria spread fast and the diseases they bring, you don’t know how bad they will be.

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...
