Justin Turns 18

We rented a place in Malaya Street for 12 years. We actually hoped to buy one of the properties but to no avail so we just decided to develop our property. Before moving back to our own place, my kids wera sad, especially Rafael because his bestfriends - Justin and Joaquin Racpan are from Malaya. Julian is the youngest among the three boys. He is Juancho's friend.

Today, Justin turns 18! Happy birthday Justin! You're one of the nicest and most gentle young man I know. Stay loving to your family!  

I've taken this video some 3 years ago, I think.

Casa Nieves

A restaurant will be two thumbs up for me when my kids enjoy the food because it's quite hard to please Julia, Rafael and Juan.  Our visit to Casa Nieves was worth all the our effort to brave the traffic and rain because they serve the best Paella in town! Julia and Juan does not eat Paella at all but they loved Casa Nieves Paella Valenciana. I actually didn't want to eat that night but when I had a smal portion of Paella, oh my goodness I coudn't stop myself from eating.

We've also tried their Beef Salpicao, Kaldereta and Pakbet with Bagnet, and I must admit, it ruined my no rice diet because they taste so delicious!

Pajama to Infinity Scarf

I love pajama, I love scarf, I love recycling, I love upcycling. I put them all together  and I got an infinity scarf.

It's actually very easy an inifinity scarf using an old pajama. Thanks to my friend Gilda Ibita for helping me do it. Here's how.

1. Choose an oversized pajama
2. Cut the garter, cut the bottom, cut the inner thighs straight.
3. After cutting, you have the option to sew the cut pajama or use textile glue to create the infinity scarf.
