Project Pie

I love Pizza.  Any kind of pizza.  I would eat pizza everyday if I could!  Yes, that's how much I love pizza.  I can live with eating pizza alone and probably french fries. For the past months, I have been seeing feeds of Project Pie.  The concept is so different and new thus people have been flocking to Mandaluyong just to try it.  It was only last Sunday that I was able to try it. So, on a Sunday night - what welcomed us was chaos.  The place was jam packed!  People walking and standing around everywhere.  Madness.  And I am not one who likes too much of a chaos (semi - is okay).  First things first - I had to find a table, a table good enough for 6 adults and 4 kids.  Man, it was tough.  As in our Pinoy culture, we like to linger in a restaurant after we've eaten.  But for a place like Project pie, well - lingering should be controlled.  It should have a slogan that says eat and go or something to the lines of that but nice, but I guess that won't work here

#BetterMe: A Session with Coach Pia

I am honored ( and kilig ) to have been invited by Kris of OC Mom in Manila to join them in their BetterMe sessions with Coach Pia a few weeks ago. The session was all about The Art of Co-Parenting:  Raising a Child as a Team. This was very timely for me - as I am a fairly new mom (Kailee just turned 2.5yo) and raising her, well - challenges me and my Panget a lot.  We actually never discussed the specifics but we agreed on the 'good cop/bad cop' set up, and so far, we haven't had any situation that called for it.  Kailee has been good so far, I mean yeah - she would have her tantrums once in a while, but it wasn't something of a big issue for us. While listening to Coach Pia speak and share, I realized so many things about myself and my background.  My background as it turns out, has a big influence on how I have decided to raise my kids.  What I have been accustomed to - well, that doesn't necessarily translate into the right way or method.  And what I

Kwentong Kasambahay: Yaya Blues, So long, farewell!

I feel so drained. ( I wrote this last night - and finished it just a while ago, pardon the grammatical errors, will edit this later) This morning, I had a Kwentong Kasambahay episode.  I'm assigning the title as 'So long, farewell!  And why is this so?  Because simply the fact that Yaya D. has left. I'm sure you've read about her in one way or another here in this blog.  I'm sure the post was a positive one as I loved her dearly. So let's start from the beginning (WARNING - emotional post ahead!) I'm sorry but I need to get this out - and this is my outlet.  I'm apologizing for the LONG long post.

Favorite moments on Breaking Bad's Felina

**SPOILER ALERT!** For those who haven't seen the FELINA yet - please stop right here!! I'm a Huge fan of the show.  I have to admit, I just started watching two months ago, and true enough - I finished the first three (3) seasons in two days.  Seasons 4 and 5 - well it took me a month (since the last 8 episodes of Season 5 only came out August 11) So there. I faced my fear and FINALLY decided to watch Breaking Bad's series finale.  I loved it.  I loved it so much that I had to watch it TWICE!  I laughed, cried, laughed again and cried some more.  The finale was THE PERFECT ENDING to the show.  The brilliance and the passion were all present all throughout the finale.  The pacing was so wonderfully in sync with the whole episode - it set the tone of redemption for me.  Start strong - and end even stronger. So, here are my favorite things on the finale: 1)  Walter White banged his hand on the windshield This made me laugh so hard.  I mean, even during his weaken
