My reward after a day’s work. Yes, it’s my creation!
Just when I’ve thought I ran out of (yummy) food to eat, our fridge always proves me wrong. Left over spinach + evo + little garlic can turn into pesto, tomatoes, cheese, whole wheat bread, and of course my treasured ham = best snack in weeks! All you need is 5 minutes to prep.#quicksnackideas#ham
It was a dream of mine to run on a color run just because it involves two things: a lot of colors and smiling runners. So I seized the chance when I heard there was one happening in Quezon City last weekend. Anyway, I kind of made my journey personalized though. But that doesn’t mean I took a short cut! No! One thing that made this experience memorable was when I rode the water tank cart (with the barangay volunteers) that blasts water to sweep the color powders off the ground just because it’s also my dream to “hang” on jeepneys. Haha! Very liberating! What a beautiful day to be riding behind a water tank with cool breeze on my face.
It was just so wonderful to look at the speck of powders flying in the air like they just don’t care. Paint the streets yellow, blast a little pink confetti here and there, throw blue powders on my white shirt…go ahead! Everybody looked ridiculously photogenic! I can’t wait to run again next time.

MANILA – With March being National Women’s month, the countless contributions women have made are being honored. Locally, Pasig Art Club in partnership with The Art Gallery of Philippine Heart Center has devoted March to an exhibit called “Heartvest” that focuses on women in harvest.
“Heartvest” brings together 14 visual artists depicting their expressions and personal experiences of harvesting that each art work shines with different stories to tell. “Heartvest is to increase awareness of women’s role in the society, hence the portrayal of women by the artists which limelights the exhibit.” states Chiqui Eusebio- Ocinar, one of the exhibiting artists.
The cutting of ribbon was graced by the Philippine National Artist for Music, Dr. Ramon Santos; Mr. Ramon Orlina; Ms. Sylvia Amorsolo- Lazo; Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Pasig President, Ms. April Amihan Alcazar; together with the Philippine Heart Center’s Archt Rogelio D. Caringal; Pasig Art Club’s Archt Ace Dimanlig and Mr. Manolo Lozada.

Holidays in Baguio is such a refreshing experience. If travelers are not used to seeing a lot of people walking around the city, they must have not visited Tokyo or New York City. It was less of an issue for me and my husband but finding a place to stay was a real challenge.
It wasn’t a good thing to book at least two weeks before our vacation. We wanted to stay at The Manor so badly we never wanted to find a hotel other than that. So it was between that or a good bed and breakfast.
Thanks to Trip Advisor we found Colione Bed & Breakfast. It was fascinating how the reviews are higher than what we’ve thought. It is not enough that you judge the place by their Facebook page, and I’m so glad we didn’t. They live by good reviews online and by word of mouth. Understated yet quality place to stay. Its zen interiors with a touch of country home captivated us.
Colione Bed & Breakfast is about 5 minutes away from the Victory Liner station. It’s so accessible by taxi, it will take you P60-70 depending on the traffic. Colione is just a few meters away from Easter College where the famous Easter Weaving Room is located, few minutes away from Tam-Awan village and Ben Cab Museum by taxi. Breakfast is decent, they brew fresh coffee, white linens, refill toiletries every morning, free bottled water, AC room, hot & cold shower, free WIFI access, and accomodating staff. If you are a traveler, you’ll definitely love it and find this place convenient. It costs P2,200 per night this room.

Hello, friends! 2014 has been kind to me and our family, I hope yours too. Ever since I got married in April, I spent less time doing personal projects and more time on office work. So it has to change this year!
I read a few novels last year and the most recent one was Kafka on the Shore by Haruki Murakami. We were at the bookstore when my husband chose that title for me to read. One time, I felt like doing a fan art about it. I’m sharing it to you now. Please feel free to download this desktop wallpaper I doodled. :)
Camp John Hay in Baguio City is one of the top wedding destinations in the Philippines. Its high altitude location is the perfect venue for a country spring or cool weather wedding themes.
A college friend recently contacted me to create a map of Camp John Hay for her sister’s wedding. Since it’s very rare to find a decent map of the place, I plotted the CJH using existing ones online and created a cute hand drawn piece.
I wasn’t commisioned for this project, so it’s my pleasure to give it away for free! Download the Camp John Hay map for FREE by right clicking and Save image as… to your computer. It’s easy to customize it when you use any design software. I hope this helps!
Cut tofu into desired size. Bread regular firm tofu with all purpose flour.
Set saute pan over medium-high heat. Add 1 tablespoon of the olive oil to the pan and sear tofu each side for about 2 minutes per side. Set aside.
In a sauce pan, add the butter, tomato paste, tomatoes, cumin seed powder, paprika, salt and pepper to taste. Add the potatoes and carrots and continue to cook the stew for another 10 minutes. Add 1 tsp brown sugar. *You may add 1/2 cup of water to dissolve tomato paste.
Now get the saute pan where you seared the tofu and pour the sauce. Cook for 5 minutes. Serves 2.
