American Loaf Bread

Thank you God for your never ending blessings! 

Let me share with you this simple gift we received from one of our neighbors. Simple, yet something that we should not take for granted and always be thankful for. Thank you, thank you, and thank you!

We live beside the Franciscan Immaculatine Sisters' Convent, and they also run a school for Kindergarten students. It's been 27 years and the nuns/sisters here have always been very nice to us. They also include our family in their prayers when we ask for prayer requests.

Today they gave us a huge loaf of American Bread. They said this is in return for all the vegetables they got for free (from my mother's garden)!

I've always wanted to bake something like this, but never had the time.

I hope you can feel the good vibes I'm feeling right now! Ain't it the best when everyone is generous and kind to each other?

Happy good vibes to everyone!

World Vision Giveaway

Whether it’s for the tax deduction or the warm fuzzy feeling giving to others generates, most Americans plan to make a charitable donation over the holiday season. In fact, nearly 60 percent of Americans say they’ll donate between Thanksgiving and Christmas, according to a survey reported in the Chronicle of Philanthropy.

With so many worthy causes, it is difficult to know where the gift can best be used. Gifts to the WorldVision Gift Catalog Maximum Impact Fund are used where resources are most desperately needed, to help children and families in struggling communities around the world. With a financial contribution, the gift giver can select one of 36 Maximum Impact items (a few are listed below) that can be given to a loved one and at the same time help a person in need.

Please consider the unique, life-changing items from World Vision’s Gift Catalog as you start, continue or even complete of your holiday shopping. Here are a few suggestions we would like to offer you:
  • Artisan Beaded Necklace: This glass-bead necklace is handmade in Thailand and can be worn several different ways — even as a multi-strand bracelet.
  • Eco Cold Cup: This popular 16 oz. BPA-free tumbler comes in handy when on the run. Every sip is a reminder of those who’ve been helped.
  • Veggie Tales "Incredible Vegetables" DVD: Heroic adventures and veggie fun for the family movie night! This newest Veggie Tale DVD is an action adventure that teaches kids how to conquer fear through a faith-based message.
  • Plush toys - Gertie Goat, Chuma Chick and Pallu Pig: Gertie, Chuma and Pallu are available exclusively through World Vision and represent farm animals that are donated to children and families around the world and provide a steady supply of nutritious food and the surplus can be sold for extra income.
World Vision is a Christian humanitarian organization dedicated to working with children, families, and their communities worldwide to reach their full potential by tackling the causes of poverty and injustice.
They serve close to 100 million people in nearly 100 countries around the world. World Vision serves all people, regardless of religion, race, ethnicity, or gender.

Eight lucky readers will receive one of the following: Artisan Beaded Necklace, Eco Cold Cups, Veggie Tales Incredible Vegetables DVD or a set of plush toys (Gertie Goat, Chuma Chick and Pallu Pig)!

What's In Mom's Bag Thursday Blog Hop!

I'm joining Mr. Jacob's Mom's What's In Mom's Bag Thursday Blog Hop! and I hope you will join in the fun of going through your bag too!

When I became a mom 6 years ago, I have learned that a mommy's bag will never be big enough. I just can't leave the house without all these essentials in my bag! I guess I got used to organizing my child's entire stuff inside his diaper bag, which, by the way, became also my bag for more than two years. 

Then I went back to work 4 years ago and had to commute every day. I was so delighted when my husband bought me a very large vinyl bag from one of the Christmas bazaars we went to. My co-workers always teased me that I look like I have my house inside my bag because of its bulkiness and heaviness. I didn't care; I liked my big, roomy and waterproof bag that I can just haul around anytime, That is, well, until the straps got broken and hubby gave me a better big bag on our 4th anniversary!

This is how the inside of my bag looks like before I took everything out. It looks messy right?

And this is after I cleaned out the paid bills, receipts, and all kinds of tissues/napkins I’ve collected from different places we’ve been to.

1. My almost 4 year-old Ralph Lauren bag from hubby
2. My leather cellphone case with my BB phone from hubby
3. An eco bag (that you can fold) from my sister-in-law Racquel
4. Car keys, house keys, and duplicate car keys (I am also paranoid that I might leave the car keys inside the locked vehicle)
5. Notepad and pen, plus a candy or two sometimes 
6. Wahvu's Hotwheels (to entertain him), a lavender spray to calm down Wahvu when he gets too hyper (gift from my sister Jean), alcohol spray, and toy whistle + flashlight (both for emergency)
7. Prayer book, rosary, St. Benedict Medallion, Miraculous Medal of Mama Mary
8. Leather coin purse and Liz Claiborne wallet from my sister Jean (I have too much stuff here too!)
9. Wet tissues and some napkins from food take outs
10. Bamboo fan and blotting papers (to keep me fresh, LOL!)

And ohI have this bag organizer (Pockets) that hubby gave me, but honestly, with all my things stuffed inside, I still go crazy whenever I go through it!

I use the Pockets to store my lipsticks and kikay stuff, medicines, first aid kit, calling cards, and also for placing hubby's cellphones when he's with me.

I don't think you can find a bag that can be messier than mine! I still have another bag (will all the essentials) in the car that I have to check soon. ☺

Care to share what's inside your bag?

Desserts at Slice (High Street)

After our sumptuous meal at Heroes, we decided to visit Slice at High Street for some desserts. 

Wahvu just can't get enough of these sweets from Slice, sold only at Heroes.

A visit to Slice is always on our list whenever we go south to see relatives. We always make sure to drop by Bonifacio High Street on our way home and get a box of muffins or cupcakes for Wahvu's school baon.

Wahvu already ate the other Choco Yema Cupcake
before I had the chance to take pictures of it. LOL!

From a kiosk (while Slice was still being constructed) to a restaurant, we've always enjoyed our visit here. 

Slice (January 2012)

Slice (January 2012)

I've always loved the Slice Paninis! (Slice February 2012)

My husband Louie, with the gorgeous Sen. Pia Cayetano (who owns Slice),
and Direk Lino Cayetano. 
Slice (Oct. 27,2012)

Since we were still stuffed with our dinner, we had a hard time choosing on what to eat. Everything on the menu is yummy, aargh! Thanks to our server Lanne (hope she gets to read this), she was very helpful and was more than happy to suggest the best desserts for us. 

Our friend Alda and I went for the Cupcake Banana Split. Oh, it's just so heavenly delicious!

Alda is all smiles!
Hubby and Wahvu got Caramel Yema Chiffon Cake, Rocky Road Blended, and Melon Banana Splash Slushee.

Thumbs up to the Caramel Yema Chiffon Cake!

Guess who finished all of this? ☺ Ang sarap!

Wahvu really loved his Melon Banana Splash!
 I tried it and it's so refreshing with just the  right sweetness.
Earlier that day, Slice gave free cupcakes to visitors for BGC's Trick or Treat event. See it here

The cupcakes are just so cute!

And for me, the biggest treat that day is meeting the Slice owner: gorgeous Senator Pia Cayetano. I still can't stop raving about her, she's really nice and so gorgeous. Thank you so much for the sweet treats, Sen. Pia!!!

Lovin' the good vibes here ♥

It was another blissful day capped with desserts at Slice High Street. Hoping to be here again soon!
