Reading and Perspective

Friday, November 23, 2012

I found this interesting image in my Facebook feeds so I thought of sharing it. I’m not really sure from where this originated though.

reading gives you perspective

It’s true isn’t it? There are things that you simply cannot experience in real life but a lot of good stuff are are written somewhere. You just have to find the right books to learn new things. It pays to read.


I’m a sucker for storage, did I tell you that? I can’t seem to have enough storage at home. Sometimes, I feel like a sentimental fool for still keeping things I’m sure I won’t ever use. That’s kinda bad huh? Anyway, I just saw this and thought our school can use some of these storage cabinets:



These are economy jumbo cabinets with shelf capacity of 200 pounds per shelf. That’s perfect for schools that have books and office supplies, right?

I got excited when I saw this kiosk in SM North:


It means there is no need to run after the Manong Magbibinatog when he bikes by too fast with his tiny kalembang :) I know this kiosk may serve a slightly different one from the ones bought in the streets but it is still an alternative. I stuck with the classic: white corn, shredded coconut and some salt. Craving satisfied! :)

P.S. They have flavored ones too. Ane got cheese. There’s ube. I forgot the other flavors. But I just thought the flavors defeat the purpose of enjoying the classic binatog, don’t you think so too?

Tabletop Fountain



K is a big fan of fountains. We can watch one for even an hour, and she won’t get tired of it. She exclaims every time we drive a fountain, always full of excitement. She demands that we take a picture of her with fountains and we would gladly oblige. This is why I thought of buying a table fountain for the house. I’m sure she will appreciate it.

Tiangge Day…Not!

Friday, November 16, 2012

Ane promised to bring me to Greenhills before the Christmas rush comes so on Tuesday, since he was off from work, we planned to shop a little. When we decide to shop in GH, we always plan to go in the morning, during weekdays so the crowd is more manageable especially that we have two little kids in tow. But we arrived in GH to this:

greenhills tiangge

Practically a ghost town! We came at the wrong time, when stall owners need to swap with others. It’s a monthly thing, they say, and it was very unfortunate that we we were there on Tuesday during the scheduled swap. Anyway, I was told the tiangge opens today and will probably stay opened until after the holidays. Oh well, I wish we can still schedule to go anytime soon.

They’re moss balls, not broccoli

Hey all! I know it’s been two weeks since my last post and I feel my blogging mojo went on a vacay too. I’m not sure if I already told you, but I’ve got work now – I mean, it’s something more stable than my piggy blogs so my attention is mostly taking care of the girls and working on my projects at night. Anyway, enough with the excuses. I’m surfing the net for decoration tips and ideas (that’s how I relax, I look at beautiful things :)). I stumbled upon these broccoli-looking decorative moss balls.




I can imagine these things in a bowl or in baskets with orchids or even fruits, accentuating the formal dining table or the coffee table in the sitting room. What do you think?

Food Court Food Trip

Thursday, November 01, 2012

On Monday, we went to the mall for a short errand. Gi drove K and I there and just came back for us. I got hungry after doing business with our mobile service provider, so after looking at toys at TRU, I told K we should go find something to eat. I ended up eating too much, LOL. To prove:


Except for the upper right Fried Balut which Gi ate and one of the to-go packs (it was for Ane), I ate most of what you see here. Maybe I should stop wondering why I don’t lose weight anymore, huh?
