Mrs. Monologues

I can cook!

Finally, a post about being a Mrs.

Last April 1st, we moved in to our house. And the first meal that I cooked was… drum roll please….

Mini French toasts served with Saudi cream cheese! Aylavet! and hubby loved it too!

Warm the non stick pan. Cut the whole wheat gardenia into smaller squares. Dip the squares in beaten egg. Fry until golden brown. Serve with cream cheese. Sosyal looking and tasting without trying!

These books from Yummy and from Nora Daza are heaven sent! These books help me plan our weekly menu and of couse guide us ( me and my beloved Jane, whose nickname I’d like to change) in our kitchen experiments.

Wake up! Wake up!
Wash your face!
And do that bumble shake!

Cool Onesies for Baby Boys

… is what our market lacks! Boo! Go to any department store and you will see for yourself that the ratio of racks for baby boy clothes to that of baby girls is not even close to 1.6543322 : 10 .
I went to at least 6 stores  in Shang before I could find a reasonably priced pair of plain shorts that my then 3-month cutie patootie could wear. And the one that I got is actually a shorty shorts for a 12-18month old little girl!
There is hope though. Thank you to Googoo&Gaga, UrbanBaby and  Djarts, Aki has 3 of the coolest onesies in town.
Googoo&Gaga offers unique art-driven, proudly Philippine-made  onesies and children’s tees. The price is a bit expensive than the usual onesie but remember that you are  paying for a limited edition art piece.  A plain white ZaraBaby onesie costs almost as much as an attention grabbing G&G outfit. You are still getting a bargain if you think about it and consider the possibilities. If I were a talent scout and I see ten equally adorable babies, I will first approach the G&G-wearing baby and probably invite the baby (and mommy, too) for an audition.


..was at my bridal shower!

Here is a picture of hunky Bro with the wonder boy that is Santino. Santino and Bro became household names because of the show May Bukas Pa.

Here is Bro during my bridal shower.

I have already forgetten his name. But his number is still saved in my phone. His name in my address book? Ylmaz Jesus. Haha.
