Family Day Sundays: Momaye's Crafts

July 29, 2012

We woke up early to have our breakfast before we proceed to church. We had tuyo and the left-over ginisang munggo.

Tuyo and Munggo for Breakfast

After the mass, we look for the nearest barber shop for Matt’s haircut. He was scared once the clipper touches his head. We had a hard time convincing him that there’s nothing to be scared of, so we let him play with Mommy’s cell phone to divert his attention. Success!

Matt: Before, During and After Haircut

Before we took our lunch, Mommy requested me to have some “hair pampering” – hot oil, of course I tried it too. Hahaha. We just made our homemade treatment by heating virgin coconut oil, apply it to our hair and massage into the scalp, leaving it for about 4 hours. Then, the hair was wrapped in a hot towel for about 15 minutes before rinsing.

While waiting for the hair to finished, we did some crafting jobs like the hand-made slippers for Matt and her cousin Gelai. We finally get a chance to try the new portable sewing machine of Mommy for her hand-made crafts. Good for us that Matt got asleep so he cannot disturb us in making crafts.

Merienda time! I used to make “mini cheese sticks” using the lumpia wrapper trimmings (I did lumpia triangles for one of our menu this week but this time I used relleno-style filling). This is paired with some chips and catsup-mayo dip. We also had some bread that I bought in a bakery after the mass.

I just realized that staying at home during our rest day is much better than spending it outside.
