Ice Cream!!!

While I was walking along Orchard Rd. with Stesh and Wayne, Stesha was telling me that I should not forget to try the dirty ice cream version of Singapore, but because we were already full that night, I wasn't able to do so. When Mama visited me over the weekend, it was a day of shopping and nonstop walking. While we were walking along Orchard Rd., we saw that people were lining up to buy some ice cream, of course we lined up too.

The ice cream was cut into "1 bar of butter" proportions. Then they'd ask you if you'd like to have it in a bun or sandwiched between wafers. Para maiba, we tried the wafer. They had a variety of flavors:

Mama had the Macadamia, I had the Tin Roof Brownie.

Yumyum! Another must-try for SG tourists. :)

I'm out.

Naku we didn't get to try this! Another reason to go back. My wife loved Orchard Road. Shopping is Singapore is so hard. There's just so many malls! :)
I'm contacting you in regards to your blog and writing skills. I'll get the to point of my reason of contact. Basically I like your writing skills and I'm interested in learning more about you and your writing ability. We currently have a small book project (rewrite a book) and we're in the process of finding someone to complete it for us.

Please let me know if you're interested and we can chat further about it. It can lead to other projects in the near future as well.

I look forward to hearing back from you in a timely manner so we can proceed with this.

Mother's Day 2017

This time last year, I was celebrating this special day for mothers with our little munchkin still inside my tummy.  I felt I had the right to co-celebrate with all amazing moms (and dad-moms, lolo/lola-moms, sibling-moms etc) of the world because technically I'm a mom already. Little did I know that being a mom is far from what I imagined it to be. Spoiler: IT'S WAY BETTER! :)
After giving birth, I was exhausted. Happy, relieved, and just plain exhausted. It was a grueling almost 24 hours of "labor". I was brought to the hospital around 6AM on the 27th, hoping that I will give birth a couple of hours later so I was pretty sure our little boy's birthday will be July 27. It took me a whole day of waiting, monitoring, cm-checking and "doc wala pa ba talaga" questioning before finally seeing our little one the morning after at 5:55AM.
This year, I am definitely, solidly, officially, proudly a mom on mother's day. Everyday I thank God for this blessing…


Who knows how to play Sungka?

What's Sungka you may be thinking? Well, let's allow good old Wiki to define it for us...

Congkak (pronounced [tʃoŋkaʔ]) is a mancala game played in the island of Borneo, Singapore, and Peninsular Malaysia. Minor variants are known as Tchonka, Naranj, Dakon or Sungka and are played in Indonesia (mostly Java), Sri Lanka, the Maldives, southern Thailand, the Philippines and the Marianas. In Indonesia, it is called "Congklak" meaning cowrie shells, which are often used as pieces. On the island of Java, it is called "Dakon" and little red seeds are used as pieces. In the Philippines it is called "Sungka" and shells are used as pieces. Congkak is believed to originate from the word ‘congak’ which in old Malay Language means count.
When we were in Boracay last April, this game was played during our free time. I love playing it! Especially if my opponent's Arvic because I pretty much win all the time. Haha! Kidding aside, I…

Hoyohoy Villas

I didn't know what to expect on our summer trip to Bantayan. I was in Cebu with my family just a couple of weeks before our Bantayan trip so I knew what to do when we arrived at Cebu, and that is to look for our shuttle that'll bring us to the pier so that we can go on a ferry boat to Bantayan Island. What I wasn't ready for was the long shuttle ride. It took us, 1.5-2 hours of roadtrip until we got to the pier and another 1.5-2 hours on boat.

Tired from traveling, we were just really ready to get to the hotel/resort to freshen up. . We were welcomed by colorful pedicabs when we arrived. Manong told us they were our ride to Hoyohoy Villas.

I'm happy the place didn't disappoint us

We were given complimentary refreshments right away...

Our villas...

Exploring the resort..

I really liked the place... the fun was just about to start. :)
