This should be posted weeks before Christmas but I feel lazy doing so. But since it's not yet over for Holidays, this might be an additional sweets on New Year's Eve. I just called this recipe as ref cake overload because it reminds me of the ice cream rocky road and just use overload since it's just the original ref cake recipe with an additional chocolate filling.
I've been dreaming of being a vocalist in a band. Actually when my brother was still part of a band along with his friends, I was asking if I could join them but he keep on laughing at me because it was like, "hello, di ka naman pwedeng makipag jamming sa amin". But that didn't stop me from pursuing what I wanted to. I still became a vocalist, a vocalist for my hubby and my baby, LOL. As I always end up singing at the wee hours before my husband sleeps after work and to make my baby fall asleep at night time. Guess my voice makes someones have a good night sleep though.
Since Christmas is just around the corner and 5 days from now it's officially holidays, I wanted to post my wishlist this year. I know for a fact that what I have on my list won't be given by somebody or someone but anyway, I feel the need to blurt it out somehow. It might be my goal for 2014 as a start right? Last year I was able to receive some of the things I wanted to have like the Kindle which is originally a gift for myself but ended up as a gift from my husband. So this year this is what I want...
Hello there! Last night I read Lhen's post about her new domain name and I was excited to try it out since they are still giving away their promo for Php199 only! And because I was so thrilled about having my own domain name after blogging for a long time, I am also sharing a small give away to my readers and followers!

Facebook now has this feature wherein you can go back and take a look at my biggest moments on Facebook. I really considered this year as a blessed one because I've been receiving such blessings from God above despite all the hurdles in life I'm facing since last year. Guess I've been good that I even received such rewarding and priceless treasures in my life. Help me track down memory lane.

I was thrilled by this three terms and I was eager to know more of it from my pedia and god thanks I was able to cope up with this. But tonight, colic is our problem again with my baby. *Sigh. If you are a mom and have experience this three with your infant, please shed me some light so I can also hear from you guys. I badly need other stories right now. Btw, if you have other information, let's say you are a nurse or a story from your ate or the like, you are also welcome.
If I wasn't in the mood to write in front of my laptop, I wanted something to write on to using my mobile. And sometimes, I have the urge to write something but writing it on notes makes me feel like a lazy one. So I tried to use the blogger app for android just in case I wanted to blurb something without the need to log in and wait for my laptop to open up. 

* It is easy to use and a light app. User friendly options too.
* You can easily write what you had in mind without the need of opening your laptop or desktop
* Works just like the regular blogger using desktop

* Needs wifi connection to be able to access it
* Can't see IntenseDebate comments if you're using it on your blog

After trying it out I deleted it because I can't see the comments on my blog and can't interact with my readers which is far more important to me than just creating posts in an easy way. It could have been a good app for me. Well, I just have to stick blogging using my laptop though.

Have you tried this app on your phone? How was your experience using the app?

Ever wonder how we get there? How we fight the distance, how we end up getting married after almost four months of "real time" dating, how we cope up for those "miss you" days for two years and a half and how we finally tie the knots this year.

Well, I share our story in a facebook page so we can inspire other LDR Couples striving hard to make their relationship worth it. I do hope that those who will read this post will also be inspired, LDR or not.

Here's what I wrote Last October 20, 2012 || First Part
After we got married, I send them a message and tonight we were featured || Second Part
And the rest is totally history, it's really worth it! || Third Part

Yes, I am in a long distance relationship. 
It may be hard but it's POSSIBLE and it's WORTH it!

Do you think you can survive being in a Long Distance Relationship too?

For other Long Distance Relationship stories, you can visit Long Distance Relationship facebook page and continued to be inspire by other couples featured in their account. You can also send one if you have a story. :) Also check their other facebook page called Stephen-Blake-author-of-Loving-Your-Long-Distance-Relationship. Let LOVE be greater than DISTANCE :)

It's indeed our 7th wedding monthsary today. I am used to making surprises back when we were still bf-gf and my boyfriend would usually feel sorry because he doesn't have one. Of course, we girls are the ones who do that stuff so it's okay for me if my husband didn't have to. Though sometimes whenever he got surprises for me, I got this 101% kilig vibes all over because of the fact that he didn't usually do it everytime but when it comes, it's SUPERB!

I was supposed to upload a cover here in my blog and share my hidden talent (have to keep it hidden so it won't rain hard always, LOL) but I'll just use this day to just share my 27th monthsary video (with me singing in the background of photo slides) uploaded in my personal facebook account. I know hubby will keep on teasing me if he'll see my post with his pictures scattered here. Haha..
Just a warning, audio isn't great so I advise you to turn on your speakers on full even if you can hear my not-so-good voice. :) I hope I can make you guys laugh a bit with my cover. *face palm*

For other covers or recording, check my SoundCloud account. Happy listening everyone!

Warning: This is not about the book. This is not about the movie either. These are what to expect when you're expecting. Embracing your first chapter as a mother-to-be and how to manage the positive to negative vibes around you while you were growing the bump inside your womb. This is about certain things you might or may not (lucky you!) experience while preparing yourself to be the "mom" of your unborn child.

Last month I was able to switch to organic products after reading Rica's blog when she found out that she's pregnant. So I look for products right away and started to purchase some, shampoos and blush on to start with. You can read my post about the organic products switch here. Yesterday I emptied out the two bottles finally. The first one which is the mandarin fresh scent was already emptied 2 weeks ago, lasting three weeks of use while the next bottle, vanilla lush only lasted for two weeks.

I am indeed a BPI account saver. And since I've got a new phone, I installed the android app once again for me to enjoy the cashless shopping, transferring money to anyone and viewing my latest balance, credits or debits without the need of going to the bank or checking it through ATM. Here's a tour and tutorial on using the BPI Mobile App on Android. Banking without hassle is two thumbs up!

Whenever I spotted a new restaurant or a food kiosk I aim to look at two choices: carbonara and sisig and definitely will try if it's good or not. If it's my first time to dine in at the place, my first order will always be a carbonara or sisig, whichever is in the menu. It's because carbonara has been my ultimate favorite when it comes to pasta and spaghetti will always be my 2nd choice. The first carbonara I've tasted was cooked by my Ninang and I really love it! I can't remember my first attempt to cook carbonara and I didn't have a picture of it so maybe next time I'll share my own recipe here.

I was really pissed off with facebook messenger last month because it's my most favorite app in my blackberry phone as much as checking emails. Since I only have a 512 kbps ISP, I can't open the facebook app and have to use the facebook messenger for easy facebook messaging. But recently, the app stop working because of technical issues. I started ranting and I feel like it's not useful at all (use of blackberry). No push facebook messaging, no videocalls, no voice calls aside from walkie talkie wechat. I have limited use of apps because blackberry is too "arte" when it comes to their native apps that it can't be used over wifi unless you subscribed to RIM data. Well, 2 years of using blackberry is now over.

I was eager to try out what Genzel has posted recently in her blog about the Allue My First water based Nail Polish. I was at SM Mall last Saturday so while I was waiting for my niece I visited the HBC outlet nearby. I was hoping that there is similar nail polish but I was dismay because there wasn't. Instead, the sales clerk was insisting that the display were water based when in fact I check it that the caption on the bottle was "Peel Off". So before I got mad at her I just pick out a pale color and pay for it.

I love Goldilocks Polvoron and even if it's pricey once I feel like I wanted one, I always buy a pack of it. My hubby also loves eating Goldilocks Polvoron too. But let me share you something today. Something that is nutritious more of for pregnant women and those who have skim milk leftovers. "Leftovers" yes, we will do a little bit of invention here, precisely an alternative to the usual skim milk ingredients of Polvoron. Ready?

I was browsing my old pics till I saw my folder "Escapade - La Virginia". Then I scan the pictures and I suddenly miss taking a vacation and spend some time with my family and cousins. It'll be next summer again I guess. I visited this place twice already and I still haven't zoom the whole area as the first one was just a plain visit and the other one, I wasn't allowed to roam that much because of my condition (pregnancy risks). However, I was able to take some pictures of some area but I can't post it all here! Sigh! If you are listed on my facebook friends, then you can see my photo album there.

I've read two books in a row the other night and now I find time to make a review. First, let me say thank you to the author of the book Susan Hatler who is generous enough to read and share my reviews on her facebook page. Another one is when she sent me this copy as a gift, I feel like I've saved a lot of money again and got to enjoy reading her book as always. Thank you so much Susan!
