I’m no professional baker but I’m not afraid to bake. I actually bake whatever I like at home. Lemme share with you a secret. I don’t even have an electric oven yet. I just use a turbo broiler/convection oven! Yes, that cooking device mothers normally use when roasting a whole chicken.
I bake whenever I feel like it. Because weekends are my free days, that’s the time I do a lot of my baking. I get those super easy recipes online and I just do them. I’m glad that I am able to get the taste, texture and appearance of my baked goodies right most of the time.

After 10 years, we were able to visit The District again last, last Sunday afternoon. We actually attended the birthday celeb of a friend’s son held at Blackbeard’s Seafood Island, one of the restaurants at that mall. After a long, sumptuous lunch using our bare hands to eat, I asked the hubby to check out Saizen with me before we went home and he agreed.
I only had one item in mind and that was a belt. I bought two basic belts (made from faux leather) at Saizen before and loved how sturdy they were. I lost one of them and decided to get a replacement. When I saw the lovely belts on offer at Saizen, I had to buy not just one but four! It was one of those moments when my EQ was at its lowest. I didn’t hesitate to grab four belts and even added more items in my basket. Haha.

Unlike mothers, fathers are kinda hard to buy presents for. This is especially true when you’re a girl and you want the best Christmas gift for your dad. When I married the hubby, I got another dad (his father) to think of when buying presents for every occasion there is.
Luckily for me, both my dad and the hubby’s dad are easy to please. My dad has always wanted the same thing for Christmas — clothes. So I just go with him to the mall and let him choose what kinds of clothes he wants for himself. As with my FIL, he is very fond of tools. You know, those screw drivers, pliers and stuff. He likes to collect them. So I might just browse through shopping sites like reid’s site that sells these stuff and hope I could find something there to give him on Christmas Day.
Since we only get to stay at our marital home in Bacoor during weekends (the perk of having parents living in Manila who let us sleep over their place during weekdays), it’s been sort of a normal thing for us to have weekend guests. I, however, only invite family members or close friends to join us for the weekend on occasions because I treasure our “couple time” so much. After all, we only get to play our respective roles as husband and wife freely and seriously at our marital home during weekends.
Last weekend, we had my parents as guests. Actually, the plan was to visit our family home in Naic for some general cleaning (my parents stay with my three unmarried siblings in Manila to take care of their household needs). The last time we were there to clean the house prior to this visit was around August so you could imagine how dusty and dirty it was when we arrived. After bringing back order and cleanliness there, we left immediately and headed to Bacoor to spend the rest of the weekend there.
