Updates and More Adventures

Annyeong! ^_^ Oh well, this is a late post. This was supposedly posted last Sunday. But several misadventures after, no me time equals no time to blog. Opening lines would have been... "I'm nursing a black eye!" But fret not, everything is okay now! (*Sings to the tune of the OST of my precious Korean drama, It's Okay, That's Love!) 

First off, highlights from my Instagram.

Featured photos: 1) Selfie love. I still owe you a post regarding my Bare Minerals haul, but fave brand to date for my easy peasy office makeup are Bare Minerals, Ecotools Makeup Brushes (uber soft plus non shedding), Shu Uemura (eyelash curler), and Innisfree. I usually do a FOTD a la selfie/selca after a visit to The Brow Studio2) Marks and Spencer Haul. Love everything. Hello, calories! 3) Of course, Innisfree.
4) Spam Tocino. #MustTry
5) Satisfying my #CafeMaryGrace cravings.
6) Cheese platter from my visit at the booth of ScanAsia in the Food and Drinks Asia 2014.

Now, on to more heartwarming moments, without accompanying photos.

Last Sunday was another inspiring day. Our new Ate went on a day-off (last time she did, she got her hair rebonded! Pretty. Love her to pieces. She's instrumental to my extra, unwanted pounds! Hah.) So it meant I had to do breakfast, lunch, and everything in between. Breakfast was spaghetti and butter(ed) toast. And cheese platter from my haul in the Food & Drinks Expo (see my Instagram). Lunch was fried rice made by Chase (my adorable eight-year old son), and I did a spin-off, Bibimbap. Yum. My son was the sweetest, although he did cause me my black eye by accident. It hurt, I cried! He was so sad, so he went out of his way to help, he earnestly volunteered to cook the fried rice a la Akira's or Benihana's. This was his second attempt, last time we had a falling out because I didn't let him put so much soy sauce, so he boycotted my version of fried rice. This time, I gave him full ownership, head Chef he was for that day. As expected, he overdid the soy sauce. It was salty. He acknowledged it and I had to fix it, hence for the Bibimbap. Anyhow, he felt so bad about it. To make up, he volunteered to wash the dishes. I did most, but I did let him wash the glasses. Tadaaa! He broke one! Strike three for him. Nonetheless, I always think that a glass breaking is better than something else. He mentioned he was unlucky, but I assured him that everything will be okay, (since it usually comes in three's), and we already had our fill of adventures for the day. As always, we kiss and hug, and all is well!

The story of my life, love and mommyhood, that's all for today! Cheers! ^_^

P.S. I have giveaways coming soon. I'm already behind requested timeline. Please stay tuned.

About Me

My photo

Wifey to JB and Mommy to Chasey :) It's said that one's eyes are windows to one's soul. True! My eyes twinkle when I'm happy, they light up with my smile. I’m no frills! I'm easy to read (except during Poker). I easily get teary eyed on practically both happy and sad things. I'm overly emotional! UP,Toy Story 3, and Glee made me cry with delight.My hubby is my source of strength. He balances that side of my personality. He made me a more self-reliant person.I love being a mom. But be it known that I tend to be OC, paranoid, and definitely see my self as a stage mom.I can't help but throw him parties every year.I love to read. If there is a lifetime membership to Book Lover's Club, I've probably signed in as early as Grade 1. I'm blessed to have a special relationship with God. He is my confidante. I practically talked to him anywhere and anytime about anything. I'm a Kapampangan and supposedly known for having culinary skills.This still needs to be found perfected, but for sure, I can say I'm a gourmand!I love to eat and it shows!Oh well!Beauty is in the Eye of the Beholder and Happiness is only a state of mind. From today onwards, I intend to live in a Happy Mode!Cheers!
