Jiggy turns 3

September first is one of the special day for our family. This year for this month, our youngest turns three.
He is a preschooler now and has grown to be a sweet and mischievous little boy (according to Ate Honey :D). He said he's no longer a baby and wants us to call him "Kuya".

He loves to tells stories and even more enthusiastic to tell how his day was spent.
Even though we hardly understand all of the words he says but hearing a two or three correctly pronounced words is already rewarding.

He loves to watch tv commercial and cartoon shows (we still need to work on controlling our kids screen time though). More interested in cars, airplanes, helicopters, and ships. Our master builder in the making as he wants to build cars and helicopters from his mega blocks. What fascinates him the most is the red Lightning McQueen car.

He answers back when reprimanded (we need to work on this) and still has tantrums when his wants are not granted (a work in progress for us on how to discipline our kids). He even can't control when in "gigil" mode which sometimes hurt Ate Honey, nevertheless, says sorry to Ate when he knows he already hurt her.

No more diapers during night time. Hooray!
No more baby bottles for milk since he can drink his milk straight from a cup. Another Hooray!

Can now identifies the 26 letters of the alphabet and numbers 1 to 10 but still working on identifying colors and shapes. No worries we're not in a hurry :-)

Our day was even brighter when you came into our lives. 
I hope you grow to become a good and God-fearing person.
Thank you God for the wonderful gift of life.
Happy Birthday Jiggy :D

An Invitation to Del-Monte Kitchenomics 30th Celebration

My parents and siblings are great cook and because of this innate skill, they were able to put up a small eatery for a living.

My husband is the "chef" of the house, he can make authentic dishes out of the ingredients available in our pantry.

Me? I'm not great and I still have a long way to take to be called a "chef" of our home.
But I so loooovve to cook!
You can call me "by-the-book" cook. :D
I only have the confidence that my dish is yummy when ingredients and procedures written in the recipe is being followed. Good thing I collect and keep recipes for they are my great helper and Yes! "Del-Monte Kitchenomics" recipe are one of my crib sheets. 
That's why when I received an event invitation from Del Monte Kitchenomics, I immediately gave my affirmation. For over 30 years, Del Monte Kitchenomics has been helping moms and cooks. Giving a wide variety of dishes that suits someone's time and budget. Who wouldn't want to include Del Monte Spaghetti Pasta and Del Monte Spaghetti Italian Sauce for red spaghetti dish? How about some Del Monte Crushed Pineapple for my carrot cupcake or for hubby's adobo?
Moreover, Del Monte manufacturing plant, being located in Mindanao, is also helping local residents from farming to canning. "Ganyan kami ka-close!" (That's how close our relationship is!)

To celebrate their 30th year as every kitchen's cook aid, Del Monte's "Laking Kitchenomics" is inviting everyone to their event this coming October 12, 2014. It is a one-day nationwide cook off activity to be simultaneously held in Manila, Cebu and Davao. It is a chance for members to meet and great and celebrate 30 years of Kitchenomics. A chance for me to learn new dishes! and meet friends!

If you are interested to join, send an email to Ann Quiogue at with your full name, location and mobile number so she can send the details of the activities. You can also contact her through her mobile phone at 0915-839-8582​.
