I know it's been a while since I updated this blog. I just didn't have the time and besides I've been so lazy these past few weeks. Hubby and I are still in Baguio and this is our second week here already. I sent our maid home yesterday so she can take care of my niece and my aunt. So now I am the one cooking our meals. I fried sliced fish during lunch and then my nephew MakMak and I went at the back of the house and gathered chayote tops. Oh my, it's so fresh and I just boiled it and we ate it with the fried fish. Now I am currently cooking beef adobo for our supper while I'm writing this. It's still raining outside and it's been raining here practically everyday for a week already. It's so nice and cool!
I haven't been cooking much lately. If ever I cook, I just steam or boil camote tops or cook scrambled eggs. I let our maid do most of the cooking while I'm in front of my laptop busy blogging. Yesterday, Jenny came back from attending the HS graduation of her younger sister and she brought with her a lot of malunggay fruits. I love this vegetable, I missed it when I was in the US. She cooked it and she just mixed it with onions, ground beef, tomatoes and fish sauce. It was really good and of course we ate it with rice. I just forgot to take a photo before we ate.
I made some ice candy last night out of coconut and milk. When I was done mixing the ingredients, I was ready to put it in the plastic bag for ice candy that I bought. To my dismay, the plastic bag had some leaks and I had to try again another bag and it still leaked. My youngest brother came in and I told him the problem. He then went to my sister's house next door and got some ice candy plastic bags and gave it to me. He even helped me made the ice candy. After doing it, I put it in the freezer. Before I went to bed last night, I tried some of my ice candy and it was so good. I ate 3 before I went to bed. Today only 1 ice candy was left. I gave some to my siblings and my nephews too. My hubby love it and he said it's better than ice cream, he-he!!!

I am a Filipina who is married to my American husband from Texas. I am a Christian with a strong faith in the Lord. I am what I am by the grace and mercy of God, a sinner saved by grace and without God I am nothing. I have simple dreams in life, just to live happily with my husband and together we will worship & serve the Lord. I love God above all and despite many trials in life God is always there to carry me through. I love the beach, sightseeing, nature tripping, gardening... I just love and appreciate the beauty of God's wonderful creation. Jesus Christ is my Creator, Lord and Savior of my life. I don't have riches in this world but as long as I have Jesus in my life then I have everything.
