Where to Buy Father's Day Gift?

In my previous post, I mentioned some Father’s Day Gift Ideas. The next question is…where to buy these items discretely. I know most wives used to shop with their husbands. Therefore, there are very slim chance of shopping secretly.

One that I can recommend and I think the best one is to buy these gifts online and send it to your office or other place than home.

There are lots of online shopping sites in the internet but you must pick legit sellers. One platform that has variety of legit shops is Shopback Philippines. They are offering items in fashion, electronics, travel, lifestyle, food and beverage, home and living, and many more.

No-bake Sans Rival Cupcakes

One of the most delicious desserts is San rival but be careful of the calories you will get from a slice of it.

Who cares! Do not deprive your self from eating such mouthwatering desserts.

You can burn the calories in just 30 minutes of dancing or walking though.

As chemist, I love doing experiments. I am glad to share my latest experiment in my favorite laboratory - the kitchen.

I made sans rival with a twist. I made it into a cup cake. And to add more twist, I made it a no-bake version. How?

Lemon Square Inipit Sans Rival Cupcakes

I used Lemon Square Inipit.
