Ranting aside…. My son is sooo happy with his new Avent bottles. I am happy as well because they are addition to his other feeding bottles and I can keep his small (4oz) bottles now. While waiting for these bottles to arrive, I settled for a cheaper (in material) brand which caused my son teary-eyed while feeding. I guess feeding bottles really matter. Thanks to Avent Airflex. Two thumbs up!!!

Chocolates – the most sinful of them all. I don’t care about all the calories, I just love it!
Leche Flan – my husband’s favorite. He just loves it especially if this to-die-for dessert is made by a family member or a friend. He feels the love with every spoonful. We don’t usually like those commercially made.
Cakes – there are different kinds. Chocolate cake is one and always in my list but my most favorite is the Caramel cake by Estrel’s. A colleague introduced this to me way, way back and ever since I’ve been ordering their cakes in every occasion in our lives. Every month we celebrate my son’s birth date. Out of his 7 months, we already had 5 caramel cakes by Estrel’s including his baptismal cake. Not to mention my sister’s birthday, my birthday, my husband’s birthday and so on. This is just the perfect caramel cake I’ve ever known.
Ice Cream – whether it’s cold or raining, every day could be an ice cream day for me. Chocolate marble was my first love but a lot of new flavors came out as time goes by. I’m a chocolate lover so any chocolate variant pleases me. ☺
Halo-Halo – yummy! My favorite of them all is Razon’s of Guagua Pampanga. I’m really not a fan of a dozen ingredients; all I want is the melted shaved ice in milk and syrup. And Razon’s halo-halo meets my preference. It has macapuno, sweetened banana, and leche flan. It’s not too sweet or too bland.
Donuts – well I really don’t consider this a dessert but sometimes when dinner is not satisfying at all, a follow up donut could seal the night. Country Style Doughnuts’ Chocolog is in my top list. The rest are Krispy Kreme’s honey-glazed donuts, Cello’s cheese flavored donuts, and Go Nuts Donuts.
Pastillas De Leche – it’s made of fresh milk, sugar, butter, and full-cream powdered milk coated in sugar. It can also be in other flavors like Nangka and Pinipig.
It's an endless list and so far these are all I can remember. Whatever mood we have, it is food that always brings us back to our sanity. Thank God for good food. Amen. ☺

This was sent by my best friend who’s also a homemaker and a mother like me and I’d just like to share this with you. You may share this as well with your sisters, mothers, friends and anyone whom you think will benefit from this. I already did this today to save my veggies. ☺
PRESERVE YOUR FRUITS AND VEGETABLES!!!
My Indonesian maid loves me so much that she shared with me a week ago that she found a way to preserve fruits and vegetables.
She said it was one of my aunts who taught her when she baby-sits at one family in KL.
That family was using "aluminum coated plastic bags" to keep their fruits and vegetables for weeks to keep them fresh.
I thought it’s a good idea to save some unwanted resource which most people would throw away. And here I am sharing with you the usefulness of an unwanted resource in action.
Here is the kind of aluminum coated plastic bag from Quaker. Any aluminum coated bag will do.
You can put as much fruits or vegetables as you want.
Look at what my mate found after 1 week...the vegetables are still fresh! Amazing isn't it? No dehydration at all. ☺
Look at the okras (ladies fingers) they are still very, very fresh without dehydration.
But don't fold or seal the opening of the bag. Just leave the bag open and it will do the magic work for you. Try it out... you would sure like it very much too.

They say a mother's child is her "trophy". I did not understand what that meant before but now it's all clear to me. Being a mother is the best title that God gives a woman. Whether it's your own child, foster child, godchild, or nephews/nieces, only few are blessed.
Happy Mother's Day to all the mothers out there. Let us be proud of ourselves because motherhood is a noble thing.
And to my Mommy Soy, happy mother's day to you. THE BESTEST MOTHER I must say!!! I miss you soooo much. How I wish you're around to guide me in bringing up Janus. I love you, Ma! Love, hugs, kisses and misses to you and Daddy.
