No meat meals? Try Slappy Cakes Lenten specials

I got invited to try out Slappy Cakes Lenten Specials at their branch in SM Aura earlier this week. I originally planned to just take Lukas with me, but the rest of the family ended up joining me instead. And it was just as good because there was so much food! Slappy Cakes Lenten Specials are no-meat alternatives that include great, tasty dishes from appetizers to pasta and filling sandwiches and rice meals. That MasterChef moment Jay and I had a “MasterChef” moment when he gently cut through the eggs on Slappy Cakes’ Salmon Benedict and out oozed the yolk, blending dramatically […]

Restaurant Review: Moshi Koshi, Of Ramen and Chopsticks

We took the kids to Moshi Koshi Noodle Boss in Market Market for dinner last night. We were actually on our way to the kids’ favorite fast food when I suddenly remembered that our 9-year old son, Pablo, had been asking to try out Japanese food. Pablo has been thinking a lot about Japan lately. Ever since he came across a video on Robotics in Japan, he’s been talking about going to Japan to see it and possibly, study there. And we want to support him on his dream, even on things as simple as giving him a taste of Japanese […]

Restaurant Review: Good doughnuts or good service? A Krispy Kreme review

I planned to take the kids for a treat at Krispy Kreme since Blogapalooza 2014. One of giveaways I received at the event was a “Create your own doughnut” voucher and I thought it would be a fun thing to do with our two younger kids. But the kids got sick on the weekend the voucher expired, so I thought, well, we can just visit our favorite Krispy Kreme branch in Bonifacio High Street and inquire if my kids can create their own doughnuts. I was willing to pay, of course. No “create-your-own-doughnut”, but… So we took the kids tonight after a short […]

Marriage: 7 Reasons why I love dating my husband

I love winning in contests and I love it more when I win something big.  The buffet lunch for two at Midas Cafe that I won from Not your ordinary mum was one of my biggest contest wins this year! Hubby and I were so excited to finally go on a date with just the two of us. These dates are very rare for us. It’s not that we don’t prioritise it, it’s just that it’s kinda hard to find friends willing to look after our three acrobats for a few hours (among other reasons) while we frolic by our twosome. It […]

What’s NIU by Vikings?

It’s been such an extremely busy week that followed Blogapalooza 2014! There were so many commitments to attend to and tasks to catch up on. I reckon that the next few weeks will be just as flurried because the holiday season is coming up and apparently, so many people want to claim back family time during the actual season that all other schedules are being crammed before December gets here. It’s been this way for the past three years for our circles, at least. I don’t mind. For me, Christmas and exclusive time with family are a perfect match! Anyway, since I’ve been hinting […]
