Hola, I'm your absentee temporary blogger reporting, sorry for being MIA for a couple of weeks, I've been busy. Busy procrastinating *lol*, I kind of, sort of got hooked with another diversion, add it to my duties as a mom and you'll get zero time for blogging; don't get started with the multitasking and time management speech, of course I know that, I just don't put it into practice *grins*. Seriously, the little house we own in the province of Bulacan is undergoing some renovation so a lot of my time was spent discussing the designs with the construction group that we hire, most of the floor and design plans were done so I do breath a little better now, but I'm still thinking about their idea of a Laminate hardwood flooring, what do you think?

Anyway, I'm back and I plan to linger for a while, the owner who call herself Anya keep on nagging me that I am taking her blog for granted, so to get her off my back, I need to work harder or to stick to the routine, at least.

Have you gone swimming yet? My son's still at school, so we're still stuck at home but he did swam with his second cousins a week ago at my aunt's house. Wishing for a happy and yummy summer!


Goldilocks' Brazo de Mercedes

>> Tuesday, March 22, 2011

My family went out two weekends ago, leaving me and the baby behind, to unwind and have fun. They came back with a Goldilocks cake in hand, a whole roll of Brazo de Mercedes, I was even shocked to find out that a roll already cost almost 300pesos, wala na talagang mura sa Pinas, hays.

Sarap yan, isa sa favorite ko, di nga lang nakakabusog kasi puro hangin lang, hahaha.

Note: Pardon the not-so-enticing pics, the battery of my cam is running out of charge already,. so I had to do the shot in a hurry.

Hershey's Miniatures

>> Wednesday, March 16, 2011

A cousin from the city of angels came to visit and he had some goodies to share, I picked Hershey's Miniatures from the lot, I just followed my son's instructions *grins*. It's a pack of bite-sized chocolate bars, the silver one is the milk chocolates, the green one is the dark chocolates, the red one has rice crispies, and the gold one has nuts. My son took care of the silver and green, the rest was left for us to nibble on.

Have you had your dose of chocolates today?


Presto Chocolate Cookie Sandwich

>> Monday, March 14, 2011

I've been seeing this cookie brand in TV advertisements but I haven't had the chance to try it out, not until, my son picked it out himself when we went grocery shopping a few months ago, and it's actually good, I love that it's not too chocolate-y. The filling comes in chocolate but the cookies itself are not, it's mocha, I think, so the chocolate taste is not that overpowering compared to other brands (no name dropping needed :D). We also bought a pack of their peanut butter cookie sandwich, of which I can't seem to find the shot I took, it's actually very good, it's now on my list of to buy goodies *grins*.

A pack cost a little more than P50.00 and it is readily available in the nearby grocery or sari-sari store.


Pinoy Scramble (Ice Crumble)

>> Thursday, March 10, 2011

One of the staple street food of the 80's-90's era (di ko na alam nung 70's, wala pa ko muwang noon) that kids loved - scramble/iskrambol (read: ice crumble). Remember those days, when you line up to buy a cup from the neighborhood manong who peddles scramble right after you wake up from your afternoon nap, the pink-colored, somewhat strawberry-flavored crushed ice that is top with powdered milk and drizzled with Hershey's chocolate and strawberry syrup. I think everyone had a taste of that, unless of course, you belong to the elites of the society *begins to chant, hail to the mighty and rich, hahaha*.

Anyway, that best-loved concoction is back with a vengeance, you can now spot different varieties of ice crumble all over the mall, in the street corners, everywhere, but it now cost from 5-15pesos and comes with a smorgasbord of toppings, from chocolate and multi-colored candy sprinkles, to mini mallows and candy-coated chocolates, to rice crispies and wafer sticks.

You know what I discovered though, it doesn't matter how young or old I am, my love for scramble/iskrambol didn't falter, hahaha.

Have a pleasant Saturday peeps!


A Nifty Solution

>> Wednesday, March 9, 2011

As a blogger, I need to spend several hours of my time online, to update my blogs and to visit and comment back on those who left love on mine. Unfortunately for a mom like me, that is not easy, personally, I only have time to do my blogging chores and tasks when my kid is busy on his own, so I'm kinda always on a hurry. That being said, you wouldn't hold it against me if I told you that it bugs me to pieces when the blog I am visiting loads slower than a walking tortoise because of all the ads and widgets, right? Or are you experiencing the same and just as miff about it? Well, in my effort to find a solution to this problem, I found Adblock Plus for Google Chrome, it is an extension or plug-in that you can download onto your internet browser, it'll then block most of the ads on the websites that you visit, making the loading time of a page faster, making your net surfing better, with you seeing only the stuff and content that you are searching for. Pretty nifty eh?

Remember this song - I said, I'm sorry mama, I never meant to hurt you, I never want to see you cry but tonight I'm cleaning out my closet - yup, that's one of the song that made the Eminem a legend in international hiphop and rap scene a few (or several, hehe) years back. Well, it doesn't have any connection with my post whatsoever, hahaha, but you see, I'm cleaning out my laptop, and this is one of the pics that I found buried in one of my folders, thus, I remember the song. If you still find it weird, don't bother, I'm just weird like that sometimes (well, most of the times).

Chocnaks is one of those new products you'll find in the grocery, I tend to buy stuff that are new on my eye and this one is no different, but because this was taken ages ago, I have no idea how much it is. I think, Chocnaks stands for Choco Snacks, and based on the name, I think, it is locally produced, I have no idea what company made and manufactured it, as I've told you, the pic was taken ages ago and my memory is not as sharp as it was before. It's actually bite-sized, chocolate-coated rice crispies, it taste much like Flat Tops (know this brand?) with a crunch.

Happy Wednesday everyone!


Dairy Queen's Blizzard

>> Thursday, March 3, 2011

My son and I went out last weekend to watch a movie, we ate pizza while we're watching so we're still full when we got out of the theater. We passed by DQ and decided on having some ice cream instead, we both had Blizzard with Oreo bits, he wanted the 16oz one so I ordered the 12oz for myself, in case he didn't finish his, I still have a space for his leftovers, hahaha. And I was right, I had blizzard overload that day.

Made specially for:


Have a pleasant weekend everyone!


About Me

I am a wife to the sweetest person on Earth and a mother to the cutest baby boy in the planet. I love reading literary books but I have an addiction in contemporary/renaissance romance novels. I am a video game aficionado in the truest sense of the word. I love to travel the world, if and only given the opportunity. I don't know how to cook (but I'm slowly learning) so there's a fascination with take-outs and dine-ins. I could go on and on but I guess you had enough *lol*.
