What makes a homecook giddy as a school girl? It’s when you see your son grow from picky-eater to a boy with discerning taste. When Sancho was growing up he would eat what was placed on his plate (Luckily!) but he would do it ever-so-slowly. He wasn’t the type to say that he was hungry and would only eat when you fed him. Needless to say, eating was not his favorite thing. Not until recently! Now all he wants to do is eat. He asks to go to certain restaurants, we would be surprised by his suggestions sometimes. We’re still getting used to this side of him but MAMA is happy! When I was that age, I had a far less sophisticated palate.

I wanted a bespoke wedding, something that was simple and really indicative of me and my husband-to-be.
Nowadays, a bespoke wedding is easy to come by. There are more venues and stylists that are ready to turn your wedding day into your very own fairy tale. …
My work allows me to experience some fun foodie things too, I’m a lucky girl that way. We hosted a movie screening for Burnt. Bradley Cooper was in it! I really couldn’t ask for anything more. A hot guy whowho happens to be a chef and of course the numerous shots of glorious food, I was totally in!…
Tapsilog is a staple breakfast meal in every Filipino household. The name refers to the 3 different components that complete the meal:

If you’ve noticed that this is the first time I’m writing about a restaurant in my blog, please say hello in the comment box so I can take a mental note of how much I love you for actually paying attention.
Truth is, I love eating out as much as I love cooking and I thought it was about time to talk about restaurants I’ve enjoyed in my hood and other places….
