Summer Shindig at Hale Manna Beach Resort & Coastal Gardens, Moalboal Cebu

Did I told you I can't get enough of the place the first time I visited this resort?
Yes, I am! and when friends decided to have another get together this year at same place again, how could I say no.
I just want to enjoy the place again and this time view the corals and fishes and who would not be entice with the turtles and sardines waiting to be explored.
Since we can't fit all in a friend's pick-up, we hired a van which would bring us from city proper to Moalboal and vice versa. This means, the driver stays with us overnight. It cost us Php5000 and van fits 12 persons.

Pick-Up Place:
Pick-up place is at Persimmon Condominium, Mabolo, Cebu at 7AM. There are bakeries and eateries which were open before 7AM thus keeping your tummy full before the 2-hour travel is not a problem. However, if you have motion sickness issue and likely throw-up, light breakfast will do or better yet bring medicines with you.

We stopped at Carcar's Gaisano Grand supermarket to b…

as a Child VS as a Parent

​H​onour your father and mother;
​​Love them as much as they love you;
​Be thankful for they have raised you well​;
You are what you are today because of them;
Many sleepless nights are sacrificed just so you will be well rested;
They sometimes work 7 days a week to just so your needs and rights are well tended.

"Children, obey your parents in everything, for this pleases the Lord."
Colossians 3:20

Love your children;
They needed your care;
Your blood is their blood;
They will grow up based on how you look after them;
Love your children, not out of duty, but out of love and affection!

Behold, children are a heritage from the LORD, the fruit of the womb a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children of one’s youth.
Psalms 127:3-4

Remember the memories with your parents;
Make new ones too!
Create bunch of memories with your children;
So you have something to remember too!

You shall teach them to your sons, talking of them when you sit in your house and when you walk along t…

Honey turns 9

I also thought of giving interviews on my kids during their birth months as a way to get to know them better and also a way of checking-in on how well they had grown-up...wink :)
Inspired by Nancy of Ordinary Miracles & The Crazy 9 as I had fun reading her posts regarding interviews with her children. Their answers are so cute, full of honesty and innocence (especially on the little ones) and I thought I'll give it a try for kids as well.

Sunshine & Citrus Bags: a Fashion Accessory and an Opportunity

A Fashion Accessory:
One essential accessory any woman have is a bag. Everywhere I go - office, malls, market or even on nightdates, ladies has bags as their buddy. 
I for one can't walk out of the house without it coz the saying "I feel naked without my bag" is quite true for me.
I've been using mine for more than a year already because thankfully I have my sisters K and the E's with me (they are bag fanatics) who help me ensure the following criteria are meet:

Bags should have its caliber and serves its purpose. The use of materials, the linings, the stitches, the zippers and locks should be considered. Who wouldn't want to have a good quality bags.Versatility
Personally, I seldom use different bags at different occasion so I rather have a bag that can be used for various activities. Bags like can be used for summer outing and at the same time perky enough to bring it in the work everyday. Capacity
Yes, I'd like to stash everything in my bag from pers…

Lemon Kiss Dress: Perfect for every Mom's Little Girl

I'm very much happy knowing that my first born is a girl, because of the thought that girls handles discipline, responsibility, maturity in decision making too well (or so I thought coz I'm an eldest too LOL and still hopeful). 
And whats more fun ---> is dressing them up! 
Amusing, isn't it? From clips & pins to tops & shorts to socks & shoes.
However, I stopped dressing her up when she starts going to school (or as she grows) coz  seems like girl's accessories and clothes and dresses becomes more expensive as they grow old. 

Growing up, having a dress was a milestone. It was not our parent's priority then and besides we were lavished with hand-me-down clothes from cousins. So it seems that I get to inherit my mom's style (for reason that we don't have the luxury to buy new dresses :D). I only buy dresses on special occasions as birthday presents or Christmas presents or as a reward when my daughter did well on her studies. Dress nowadays are q…
