Project: Making the vine climb the trellis

The arbor is made of metal. This used to be covered with net housing the orchids underneath thus giving them shade and protecting them from the sun’s heat. But that was long ago when my mom used to love gardening and she stays in this garden for long hours. And her orchids were really in […]

A firefly on a moonlit night

Living in the province with the freshest of everything is a blessing I enjoyed ever since I was young. And even animals that are rarely visible in the urban communities can be found in the provinces. And one of these is the firefly. As a child, fireflies are common sights at night. They would even […]

I’m back!

It’s been months since I last posted on this blog. Well, I am not dead. I am not sick. And I have not gotten tired of this thing which I love doing – writing!. I am so much around. It’s just that I was so busy reviewing for the PAFP Diplomate exams – both written […]

Ralph is now 8 years old

Eight years ago today (September 8), I delivered a healthy baby boy via caesarian section at the Philippine Children’s Medical Center (PCMC) in Quezon City. Why so far when I live in Pangasinan, you might ask. It is because I truly believe in the ability of my OB-Gyne. And in addition to that, most, if […]

Milo Marathon on a Sunday morning

Few weeks before August 16, Raymund announced to the whole family that he was joining the race. A 3 kilometer race. Of course, he caught us by surprise. It was so unbelievable. All I know is that my son loves to eat pasta. Any kind of pasta will disappear in front of him. But joining […]

Speed stacks, computer games, and savings

Days before school started, I already told my kids that computer games will no longer be allowed once school start, and that they can only play such during weekends. They agreed. And so every day after school, they resort to different kinds of games, the most popular of which is the speed stacks. Speed stacking […]

Santi: now at three months

Santi has been with us for more than a month now. He was given to us quite too early at 1 1/2 month old. And according to the veterinarian, too early weaning (before puppy is 2 1/2 months old) is responsible for his being too defensive these days. He bites us when he plays with […]

I finally found the time last week so I searched the internet for easy-to-find ingredients for dumplings. I found one simple recipe from imom but I had to substitute ku chai with onion leeks […]

Enjoying the summer rain

For several years now, summer vacation in my family was spent mostly either swimming in the beach or in a resort pool. My kids really love to stay in the water for hours – swimming, playing, or doing just about anything under water. They will soak their bodies and stay there even under the heat […]

Fresh coconuts

One way of enjoying Tabugoc aside from exploring the waters is to take pleasure from viewing its lush greenery and enjoying the fresh produce it offers. While my husband took no solid food for three days as he annually does in the observance of Holy Week, the rest of the family, my in-laws included, had […]
