How to Escape the Daily Grind and Not Feel Guilty, Doing all that at TED's BnB

There were days that I just want to run away from my busy life...

I'm just being honest, and as a mom it takes not only guts to take in all of the stresses of the family but still show strength.  To “run away” doesn’t mean leave for good, and probably not even for long. It just means one needs some space. And that’s pretty advisable thing to do keep us sane and ready to bounce back.

Travel in Time: A Photo Exhibit for Pasay Heritage

Early December, Pasayenos have received a glorious gift from the office of the Mayor.  Let me just say that this happens to be the best gift Pasay City natives and citizens could ever receive. Pasay appellated itself as "The Travel City" but more than being the gateway to adventure, entertainment and shopping, Pasay prided itself as a home to some of the country's prestigious personalities and historic landmarks.

New Year Eve's Dessert: Cardamom and Orange Upside Cake

This is one of those kitchen mishaps that didn't seem like a total fail.

Chicken Cacciatore

I'm moving on...

Yet taking a break from doing accounting and creating anew with my fresh clean slate of a calendar. I hope I can say that I'm still in vacation but in essence, I'm not, in fact I'm not officially employed by anyone except my own and there seemed to be limitless amount of work still to be done, there were even remnants from last year's blogging duties.

Hello 2017 and to More of Your Good Tidings

So I've heard that my kids' friends have the intention of unfollowing me coz of the food I've been posting.  Please, it really is not in my motives to boast. or to show-off where I was at or what I was doing, This blog primarily had been my life and my only way of collating what have happened in my life through out the years.  I'm getting old and older by the minute and my memory isn't keeping up with me as I age.  It's nice looking back at what I have accomplished (and being able to publish a blog in a day is quite an accomplishment for a busy mom like me).
