Everyday Mom - YUM!

I think I found a new favorite cupcake! Been passing by this place called Everyday Mom, whenever I went on my every other week pedi session but always forget to actually drop in!  I openly wondered why it opened there, right beside Wheatberry and Max's Chicken.  Then a cousin in law of mine said that their breads are yum!  Since my nail salon is a few meters away, I finally decided to buy some, on the way home with my Panget. It was raining last Saturday so I was in a hurry.  I just got a box of 6 and picked 3 flavors - the Cafe Mocha, Choco Banana and the Carrot Cake. I had to make sure to take a picture before I tried it because it looked so perfect!   Self control!!  I had to take a bite to see what the fuss was all about and the verdict?  These were the SOFTEST cupcakes EVER!!! The Cafe Mocha was IT for me!  I liked it the best among the three flavors.  I am not a fan of bananas in pastries so my second best was the Carrot Cake.  The Choco Banana was also

Thank you, Nora Daza!

I was startled when I saw a friend's status message on FB that said RIP Nora Daza. I was silenced. I've always said that it was because of the show Cooking it Up with Nora - that I learned to appreciate watching a cooking show. Nora Daza is an icon for me.  She's one of the biggest influences in my life with regards to cooking.  I would remember waking up early on weekends to watch her cooking showwas it Saturday or was it Sunday morning) on Channel 2 when I was still a kid.  Watching her show made me want to try cooking.  I think it was because of watching the show that I learned to love to cook and bake.  I would remember her and her children (I remember Nina and Sandy) whip up dishes and I was so fascinated with how they sauteed and cook up dishes with such ease. The theme song is still plays in my head when I remember her. So, to Nora Daza - THANK YOU for your cooking show.  If not for your shows, I wouldn't like to be influenced to learn how to cook (a

Ovomaltine Spread

Okay, to be honest - I am not a fan of chocolates, diba?  But when I got pregnant, I suddenly craved for it and now - I officially like chocolates, sweet chocolates at that. So, last week - I finally got my bottle from my good friend Fran , and my gosh - its soo good!  I've seen fellow bloggers who put the spread on breads and crackers, but me - I just eat it off the spoon!   I love the sweet crunchy knawing taste!  As my brother says - its Nestle crunch spread! It may be a little too sweet for some, but I like it sweet - Haha! :)  Cilck here to make/place an order

Wooden Spoon in Rockwell

I am not a Power Plant Mall kind of a gal.  I find the mall quite boring to be honest, the only thing that I look forward to are the Baker's Dozen fair and the bazaars at the Rockwell Tent.  One of the reasons why I go to PP Mall is because the mall is fairly clean - I can bring the kids there to play and not worry about the mall's toilets being dirty.  I love that their toilets are really clean and lovely to look at. So yesterday, on the way to PP Mall, I was already thinking of a place to eat.  It has been Shi Lin for the past few visits and I wasn't up to having XLB.  Good thing while walking towards True Value, I saw Wooden Spoon open!  We got there at 11AM so the place wasn't as full - but since we had to go to True Value first, I decided to leave my name so that when we get back, we would be prioritized. We went back a little before 12nn and the place was packed!  We had to wait about 20 minutes to get a table.  Server Errol apologized on the delay apparently,
