    Top 5 Wishes I Have For My Son

    Merry Christmas! Yes, it’s Christmas today and looking at social media posts, I saw a lot of ‘What’s your wish?’ or ‘What do you want to receive?’ Instead of asking that to myself, I wrote the top 5 wishes I have for my son when he grows up and can decide for himself. That he accepts Jesus as his Lord and Savior Accepting Jesus as his Lord and savior is a guarantee that he will be saved and have eternal life in Heaven. Isn’t this the best wish one could ever have for their children? Not good deeds, not good words, and not just going to church will save us.…

    How I Started my Freelancing Journey

    Seems like I just started. 🙂 Never crossed my mind before that I will be doing this for a long time. Read on for the story of ‘how I started my freelancing journey’. **Got this from my old blog. Written last year, back when I was just writing for myself.haha 2010, I was in my second year as a customer service representative of a BPO company when I heard about Odesk.

    Sinigang na Bangus Recipe

    One of the easiest dishes to cook, for me, is Sinigang na Bangus. “…it is a Filipino soup or stew characterized by its sour and savoury taste most often associated with tamarind (Filipino: sampalok). It is one of the more popular dishes in Filipino cuisine.” – Wikipedia For this recipe, I used boneless milkfish because it is easier to eat, especially if you have a toddler. You can either have the milkfish deboned in the wet market or buy one in the supermarket.

    10th Baby, Kids, and Family Expo PH

    My First Expo as a Mom When I received the invitation for the 10th Baby, Kids, and Family Expo PH, my heart leaped for joy as this would be my first event as a mom. However, we don’t have a helper to take care of my baby and going to events like this is hard because we now live in the province. But, seeing the list of Exhibitors and the Schedule of Activities, I told myself I will never miss this. Good thing, my husband volunteered to take care of our toddler while I’m out. Besides, I have never been out without my baby for a while now. 10th Baby…

    Fusilli Carbonara with Mushroom Recipe

    Whenever my son doesn’t want to eat rice, our go-to food would always be pasta, pancit bihon, pancit canton, or any noodles topped with white or red sauce. And, today is one of those days. Good thing pasta and sauce are included in our monthly grocery staples! I prepared a very easy to cook Fusilli Carbonara with Mushroom for lunch so the picky toddler can eat. I do not have time to check for the best recipe online, so I just cooked it like a normal pasta would be cooked. Here’s how I did it. Ingredients: 3 cups Fusilli pasta 200g Del Monte Carbonara Style Spaghetti Sauce water salt oil…
