Hearty Bread for Healthier Options

I first heard of Hearty Bread from a diet group in Facebook. The company was advertising their Ezekiel bread which was made of Almond flour. I tried checking it out on the then functioning Honest Bee delivery app, but at that time, they weren’t delivering in our area, so I wasn’t able to try it. I came across a post about the Ezekiel bread by Michelle Huertas of Trendspotting a few months later and decided to ask her about it. Luckily for me, she decided to send me a whole basket of Hearty Bread to try. It was Christmas come […]

Easy Recipes: Dona Elena’s Easy Pesto Pasta

Hi everyone! I have fifteen minutes before I wake my kids up for their Musical Theatre and Hip Hop classes. This afternoon, I’m accompanying two of them to their recording in Makati. That’s how busy the day’s going to be. So what I’ve got on the cooker right now is Dona Elena Linguine pasta boiling in water. I’m packing the kids’ baon and I’ve decided to prepare Dona Elena’s Easy Pesto Pasta because they love it. I made a video a few weeks back on how to do this. The feedback on it was crazy!

Philippine Ballet Theatre’s ENCORE (The Best of PBT USA Tour 2019)

OH. MY. GOSH! Awe and amazement were plastered all over my face after watching Philippine Ballet Theatre’s Encore last night.

Regina Magbitang, and my personal favorite PBT lead, Veronica Atienza, performed heart-stopping choreography, as well as relived well-loved PBT classics. The men were not to be outdone.

I have to say that […]

LYROPERA’s Magnificat The Musical (The New Staging)

I first heard about Magnificat The Musical from a friend of mine. From the title itself, I knew right then that the spotlight would be on Mary, the mother of Jesus. If you’re not yet familiar with the Bible, Magnificat is what Christians call Mary’s song of praise when God revealed to her that she had been chosen to give birth to Christ. Growing up, we used to sing this song in church. The Magnificat reflects Mary’s relationship with God. Her meekness and her humility to do His will no matter the consequences. Mary, the Mother The story of Mary […]

PHC 2019: Homeschooling….For What Purpose?

I always look forward to the annual Philippine Homeschool Convention by Educating for Life team. I love listening to the speakers talk about their own experiences in homeschooling, and the methods and strategies they’ve used to accomplish their goals. And I always go home fired up and fueled, and ready to take on another year with my kids. This year, though, I was only able to siphon wisdom from the morning sessions because we couldn’t stay the whole day. We’ve been up to our necks with stuff the past few weeks and we badly needed to rest. Among the many […]
