I love desserts, and it was already a given that I would prepare a dessert buffet for the Princess’ birthday. However, what I wasn’t counting on was that would need to DIY the styling. But that being said, I think it turned out pretty well! Continue reading “7th Birthday Series: Cake and Dessert Buffet Goodies (Baked Twinkles)”

Magnum Opus Fine Coffees

BF Homes, Parañaque

You know those cafés that seem to be meant for relaxed conversations about life and love, and don’t seem quite apt for planning sessions or business meetings? Those cafés which are small and cozy, homey, tucked away, and serve reeeally good coffee to boot?  If you can’t quite put your finger on such a place, then head on over to Magnum Opus.

What’s in store for 2017?

On a more personal note, I’ve experienced several milestones in 2016 which led me to thinking: What’s in store for me in 2017?  Well, since one highlight of 2017 was being able to start MommySOM, I figure I should kick off the blog this year on a high and hopeful note.  The past year sure had a lot of challenges, but here’s what I am most thankful for in 2016 and what I pray 2017 will bring.

I’ve always considered Tagaytay to be our “default getaway” whenever we feel the need for a quick out of town trip.  We had so much fun at our stay in Hotel Kimberly Tagaytay that we took so many photos!  I had trouble sorting out which ones to put up on my blog! In fact, we have so many photos that I’ll be doing three blog entries on Hotel Kimberly Tagaytay: The Hotel, The Activities, and The Breakfast Buffet.  I’ll start with The Hotel.

Ok, I’m not really an AlDub (Alden and Yaya Dub) fan, and truthfully I think I was one of maybe 2% of the Manila population who were very late in knowing about the AlDub phenomenon.  Come to think of it, I only discovered AlDub when my hubby needed to impersonate Alden for a Christmas presentation last year.  I was like, “Sino ka daw dapat? Sino yun?”.   But, on a recent Tagaytay staycation, I have to admit it was a done deal that we try Concha’s Garden Café at the Cliffhouse when I found out that it was owned by Alden Richards.
