Easy Recipes: Scotch Eggs with Sweet & Sour Sauce

I first tasted Scotch Eggs when my friend from downstairs, Edz, the woman who taught me how to make Chicken Fajitas, brought it over for dinner with me and the kids. Our husbands were both out of town on a kids ministry event and since we live in the same apartment building, we decided to have dinners together during the time our husbands were away. I learned later on that Scotch Eggs are common in the UK. You can find them being sold in corner shops and supermarkets, much like how you see Kwek Kwek at the mall food court. […]

Roselle Cobangbang: Because Family Comes First

Two years ago, I missed my opportunity to meet Roselle Cobangbang. ┬áRoselle is my cousin Clariz’s manager in Sun Life. My cousin was then just starting out in the insurance company and felt that her manager would be better at explaining to me what I needed to know, but I refused for her to come.

Thankfully, geniuses have come up with brilliant solutions to my concerns with services like Paypal, VISA payment cards and C.O.D. (Cash on Delivery) options. And I’m so glad they did because my life as a mom of three boys became so much more easier. What I’m saying is that there are now stuff that I can do more conveniently, which I welcome especially because we don’t have household help […]

The World Will Teach Them

One of the reasons why many parents choose to homeschool their children is to be their primary and strongest influence. It was one of ours when we decided to homeschool Pablo, our eldest (and later on, his younger siblings), aside from finances and all other factors we considered. We wanted to raise our children to know Jesus and to adhere to the scriptures in how they live their lives, young as they are. We strongly believe that a child’s first 12 years are most critical in their character foundations. I have to admit that because our children have been closely […]
