Kitchen Adventures: Saucy Crab

Saucy Crab

Sounds “sosyal” and difficult to prepare, right? Try to find out.

I am got this recipe in one of cooking segments in TV. Good timing because I just bought some alimasag few hours earlier. However, the recipe featured fried alimango. Why not try with steamed alimasag?

Seafoods Sunday

Last Sunday, I went to market and bought stuffs needed for the week's menu. Since I was alone in the market, I got a chance to buy what I want. Right, Mommy?

As I searched for fish in the wet section, I got cravings for seafoods so I got some pieces of shrimps and alimasag (crab) instead of Maya-maya (snapper fish). These will be our lunch for the day.

Herbal Plants: Serpentina (King of Bitters)

I am a supporter of using herbal plants for our health. I even planted some at home like oregano, lemon grass, balbas-pusa (Cat’s whiskers), ashitaba and even the serpentina (King of Bitters). I am a professional chemist but a big fan of herbal medicine. Sound ironic? I think not.

One of the things I really get worried as first time parent is about deworming my son. I heard from Mama that she was also afraid the time I was dewormed and send me to my grandparents. She was afraid, I presume, on the worms coming out which is also one of my fears.

Healing Galing Visit

My MIL was found to have slight Parkinson's Disease.

We started selling made to order Made to Order Crochet Items  in Momaye’s Shoppe about 3 months ago.

Here are some some of the designs.

Doing the items is really tiring but fulfilling when we received feedbacks from the customers after receiving the items.

A Love Story


There was this guy who has a girl friend which he considered as his best friend (same with the girl). They took the same school from pre-school, primary, secondary until college, where they took the same course. Even they are classmates from pre-school; they are not close to each other until they reached their senior years. This is one of the reasons why the guy took the same course as the girl.

Tips for Picky-Eater Kids

I observed that many kids nowadays are picky with the food they eat. Some prefer to have meat rather than veggies. Some choose processed meats like hotdogs, tocino and longanisa. As first time parent, I was worried and consider this as one of the major problem by most parents. Good thing we did not experience this kind difficulty with our son who used to eat what we eat without any hesitation. Of course you still need to be careful on the food you give to your kids.

Talkative Matt

Matt is very talkative nowadays. One funny thing about him is that he keeps on repeating something he says until you repeat or agree with it. When you ask him, “Sino ang madaldal? (Who’s talkative?)”, he will answer ‘Mamatt”, pertaining to himself. Many said that this trait is being inherited.Since Mommy and I were silent type of persons, we often joked that he used to inherit this from Mama. That’s why when we asked him, “Kanino ka nagmana? (Where did you inherit that?) ”, he will reply “Mama”.

Toddlers Develpoment

Matt exhibits some acts that we think in advance compared to his age. At 29 months, he can easily identify and recite the alphabet, can recognize numbers as well as count from 1-20, can distinguish not only the primary colors but others too including fuchsia, can identify the basic parts of the body, can sing "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star" and "Bahay Kubo" in correct tunes (good thing he did not acquire singing talent from me. hehehe). He can also hold pen and colors firmly and make doodles.

Happy Halloween!

I was scanning my photo files early this morning when I got this picture of Matt. Mommy placed her hair over him to see how he looks like in case he became a girl.  Perhaps irritated by the hair or he already understood what we planned, he keeps on moving and rolling over. Instead of having a photo of a little girl, we had this "Chuckie" image ready for revenge. LOL.


Happy Halloween to all!

Will he really be a mechanical engineer or he is just trying to explore things?

Family Day Sunday: 10212012


Early morning, I received a text message from Mama that they are already on their way to Bulacan for a week vacation because they really missed Matt. We immediately prepare since we will fetch them at Pulilan. We also got a chance to visit our aunt’s house somewhere in Guiguinto where I took the photos I posted HERE.

I saw bunch of “Makahiya” (Mimosa pudica) plant so I made Matt familiarize with it. I showed him how it folds its leaves when being touched. He was so happy to see it and tried it by himself. He keeps on screaming after touching the leaves and watching as it slowly closes its leaves.


Since it was still early, we proceed to SM Marilao and we are going to buy some yarn for Momaye’s Shoppe’s orders. I asked Papa to go with Matt on the mini-carousel while Mommy and I went to buy yarns. We also showed to Mama and Papa what the gift Matt wants on Christmas is, and they promised to buy it for him (I’ll just make a post once they bought it. Hehehe).



Then we went to the BGS (Big GarmentSale) to look for some stuff. There are lots of people coming from nearby cities buying tons of clothes since you will really get great discounts on branded clothes. Also, this is their last day of their sale. Unfortunately we didn’t buy even a single piece of clothes since it has really a very long line in the cashiers. One thing I like in this garment sale is that they offer free lunch and snacks to all of their customers. LOL

We went back home and again, do some of the orders while having small chitchats with my parents. I also asked papa to check Jaby (the red motorcycle) since it didn’t start when I tried to use it last week. Good that he fixed it. Yipee! Jaby is on the go again. Matt immediately asked Papa to have a quick ride around.

What a tiring but fulfilling day.

Matt and the Teribble Two

When Matt reaches the age of two, Mommy and I observed a sudden change in his attitude. He used to cry whenever he did get what he wants. Sometimes he will start stomping his feet or even sit down and cry. Until we read about what experts called “Terrible Two”. This is a change in their attitude and part of their development. Most kids starts to have tantrums whenever they are upset to a particular thing. Worst, some will hit their head on the wall. The term “terrible two” does not mean that they will show this one as they reach the age of two like what we observed from Matt. In some kids, this starts as early as they reach their 2nd age or after their first birthday.
