March 30. A supposed happy and exciting lunch with the maternals became the conduit of that not-so-happy news, tho I’ve already had negative feelings prior to that day I remained positive and hopeful.

We’ve initially plan of road tripping during the Holy Week, the maternals were so excited in fact and I was the one with little apprehension foremost because my BIL would be arriving from abroad and we have to keep him company during the holiday and seeing that, I worry that we might not be able to join the group the entire trip. But perhaps the hasty cancellation of the trip to north was for everyone’s good, it’s what I’d like to believe now.

Maybe it’s not really meant to happen this year, let’s look forward to next year. 🙂 And tho it came a big disappointment to some I hope there’s no hard feelings into it. C’mon let’s just accept and let go, as simple as that. I still dream of beach bumming with you guys just like the old days when we were so much younger and innocent, and free from life’s unending trouble. I’ll see you soon. 🙂

The eye and that feeling of home…

The night before the fambam was out in Tagaytay to unwind and to savor the remaining cold breeze, it was warm which was expected because the promenade was packed with people then. Everyone must want to save electricity as well so they’d trooped to watch the free show; we chanced KZ Tandingan who did a very good performance. I’m not a fan but she wowed me esp when she did the Eheads songs. KZ changed a lot after her winning the first X-Factor Philippines tho I’d like her better when she first went on stage singing reggae plus raps. By the way, coincidentally that night was Earth Hour too.

And because the temperature was rather humid, Razon’s halo-halo was the perfect ending to our night. ♥

P.S. I miss the kiddos and the two B’s…

We we’re home even before the love month bid goodbye, I was particularly home because I needed to preside another batch meeting. It was another fun meet like the previous two meetings and I enjoyed more the get-together afterwards. We hit Tagaytay and it was an occasion I’d be writing about soon. 🙂


The following day it’s time for me to treat the kids again, it’s time for Ninang to unwind at the same time –a momentary break before another workweek ruin my happy spirit. I’m not really enjoying the workplace at the moment, there’s ton of issues unsettled and it’s worrying me, the worst I’m almost always feeling sick because of those. Mind over matter, I wish it’s easy just like that, I have to pacify myself and let go of whatever negative vibes and just go about the flow and enjoy (?). I wish I can just swipe bigheaded people around, I think I created my very own monster. 🙂


Okay when in Tagaytay I’ve always wanted coffee, more coffee sort of bottomless to say , so to end my caffeine addiction we ended up at Bag of  Beans –our one-stop shop for caffeine booze, breakfast, dessert & take home.

Bag of Beans bottomless coffee is a steal! I can finish three cups and pay a little over than P100, no guilt feel and coffee is always fresh. Oh and that wonderful aroma!


We ordered our favorite coffee pairing at BOB –Raisin Bread at P170 is huge and filling. I thought I wasn’t that hungry but I think I ate half of that big loaf. Hehehe.


While husband and I chose to savor bottomless cups of freshly brewed coffee, my sister and the kids had espresso with shots of milk froth thus a caramel cappuccino & white mocha with cute coffee art. Coffee art is love; it makes every cup delicious-looking and too beautiful to drink.


You know the kids can’t live with a cup of coffee alone especially our little big “Miss” who loves anything pricey and fancy. She got an order of Chocolate Chips pancake to share with P. It was a stack of three choco-pancakes with choco chips atop and butter. I don’t know with you but my pancake standard is always that of McDonald’s –soft, not too thick not too thin, with a slightly chewy texture. BOB’s pancakes are too airy and dry for me nonetheless the kids love it anyway.

My sister got an order on their famed Shepherd’s Pie (which I forgot to take a photo), there’s no doubt that I love it only that at times its cut tends to be tad too small for its price.


And for the first time we sampled their most raved about Blueberry Cheesecake, not cheap again if you’d ask me because it was rather expensive than Starbucks’ and the latter is far more rich and goodness. Let’s pretend I’ve got no idea who supplies cheesecakes at Starbucks, I’d still pick it because I love my cheesecake baked. 🙂 This slice was a disappointment especially that the supposed sour cream topping came even thicker. At least we’ve tasted it by now. Sometimes you really need to take the risks so you’ll know which is better and never go for the pits again, life lessons you know.


We had a good day out minus our cutie patootie who was still recuperating from that darn chicken fox. The kids were recharged so do I.


*Btw, I so love this chandelier and it deserve to be on this post. 😀

Sundays are the best days, Sunday and me we’re good together. ♥
