B is for Bukayo

Have you ever tasted a bukayo? Bukayo is a very sweet Filipino dessert. It's popular on some provinces particularly my home province, Marinduque. Thinking back on my childhood, I remember how my lola cooked "bukayo". Hmm, I missed those times... 

Bukayo is so easy to prepare. You can use young coconut or mature coconut flakes. You can simply mix the coconut flakes in coconut milk with white or brown sugar and transfer it to plate when cooked. Cut it with your desired shape and you can now have a dessert with a very sweet tasting delight Yum!

I Love and Miss my hubby

This man makes every second of my life meaningful and full of love
Tonight, I’m here blogging instead of going to bed. I miss my husband so much. It's like half of myself is missing. I miss waking up in the morning with him. I miss his friendship, his companionship, his sense of humor and his love for the family. I ache to talk to him for longer than a few minutes here or there. I want his hand to hold. I want his eyes to look into. I want to fall into his hug at the end of the day. I want to share the laughing with him. I want to see him light up with delight at the joy our children bring him, and I want to share a little of the weariness and frustration that come along with the job of parenting too. I don’t want to have to wait another second longer.  But I will.  Because waiting is how I love him right now....

Charice Pempengco shines on Glee Season 2 Premiere (Episode 1)

The long wait is over for Charice fans all over the world. She finally appears on Glee Seasons 2 in the episode "Audition". In the said episode, Charice portray the role of Sunshine Corazon, a foreign exchange student from the Philippines with a "remarkable voice", a word that Rachel Berry used to describe Charice. Charice shined and impressed the televiewers with her rendition of Telephone (with Lea Michele) and Listen. And that actually made me proud as a Filipino. 

Next week's episode, it will be more exciting as it pays tribute to Britney Spears, who's also making a special appearance. Will we still get to see Sunshine Corazon in the other episodes?

Charice got a great exposure on Glee Season 2 episode 1 titled “Audition”!

Happy Grandparents Day!

Wishing all grandparents a Happy Grandparent's Day! To Tata and Nana, we cherish every moment we spent with you and will never ever forget all the happiness we shared as a happy family. I know how blessed my kids, nephews and nieces are that they were able to spend time with their lolo Gusty and lola Lily. They've always experienced the love and concern of their grandparents. We love you, Nana & Tata!

A Song for Grandma and Grandpa

Oh Grandma, Grandpa, you know that I love you
I love all those little things that you say and do
A walk through the park, a trip to the zoo
Oh Grandma, Grandpa I love you

Verse One:
Going to a ball game, fishing on the lake
Eating Grandma's cookies, boy they sure taste great
Going to the circus when it comes to town
Eating cotton candy and laughing at the clowns

Oh Grandma, Grandpa, you know that I love you
I love all those little things that you say and do
A hug and a kiss, a ride home from school
Oh Grandma, Grandpa I love you

Verse Two:
Spending time together, talking on the phone
Happy birthday presents, chocolate ice cream cones
Photographs and memories, picnics and parades
Saying that you love me in so many ways

Oh Grandma, Grandpa, you know that I love you
I love all those little things that you say and do
The stories you tell, things I never knew
Oh Grandma, Grandpa I love you

Describe Me! #1: The Umbrella Test (Sept 5)

I love rainy days... It is romantic and for me it means life...:-)

Your Pink Umbrella Says You're Sensitive

When faced with adversity, you respond with compassion.

Even if someone is making life difficult for you, you can't help but see things from their perspective.

You are emotionally in tune, and you are very sensitive to those around you.

You are able to give to those who need it most, even if they are difficult to deal with.

On a rainy day: you should offer to help someone who needs you
