Frugal Find: H&M Basic Cardigans

When H&M opened stores here in Manila, I initially didn’t mind it. I thought it was just another sushal brand that I won’t be able to afford. I was wrong. Just like Uniqlo, it sells high-quality yet reasonably-priced clothes pala.

Have you seen their home items? Ang gaganda, grabe! But I’m not sharing about those and instead, the two basic cardigans I bought from H&M – Robinsons Manila a couple of weeks ago. Priced at P599 per piece, these cardigans are dainty! Touching one for the very first time, I could tell the fabric was of high quality. Even the stitches were perfectly aligned.

Weekend Story: Family Outing + Work on a Sunday

Last weekend was super fun. Well, scratch that. The fun only happened on Saturday because we had a family outing. Sunday was a different ballgame. I had to go to work and though I was quite productive, lazing away on a Sunday is still waaaaaay better. Haha.

So, we went home in Bacoor with my in-laws on Friday night. The next day, Saturday, we woke up early, packed our things and drove to Kalipayan Hotel and Resort in Dasmariñas, Cavite. We got there at 7am-ish. After paying our entrance fees (P200 per head) and renting the same kubo (P600, good for 12 persons) that we stayed in during our previous visit last Holy Week, we started unpacking our stuff.

Cooking with Edel: Baked Lapu-lapu

This Baked Lapu-Lapu (or grouper in English) is inspired by the restaurant La Cocina de Tita Moning’s Baked Lapu-lapu Cooked with Olive Oil and Garlic. (I work there part-time so I’m unabashedly promoting it here on the blog, haha.) Proof to that is the use of bread crumbs to cover the top part of the fish. This tasty and flavorful fish dish will make you feel like a domestic diva. It’s so easy to make yet it is classy enough to be served during special occasions.

Ingredients:

500g lapu-lapu
10 pcs. calamansi (or 1 lemon)
olive oil
¼ cup soy sauce (optional)
bread crumbs
salt and pepper to taste
toasted garlic bits (prepared beforehand)
hot water
butter

Weekend Story: Laundry Day Saturday and Mother’s Day Sunday

The hubby and I were supposed to go home in Bacoor as early as Friday night last weekend. I was, however, asked by Mame and my sister Jodie to accompany them to the doctor on Saturday morning. They weren’t sick, though. They just wanted to have a check-up with a dermatologist for possible treatment of facial warts.

When Saturday came, Jodie got lazy to get up early and Mame suddenly asked to cancel our lakad at the last minute. I was a bit upset because they wasted my time but when Mame told me she’d join us in Bacoor and celebrate Mother’s Day with me, my disappointment went away.
