Just a quick post before I say “hello” properly. It’s been a long week and I miss you all. Enjoy the sunrise or the sunset wherever you may be.  May this inspire you though. Think of a peaceful and lovely Wednesday morning. Think of the beauty of nature. Think of all the possibilities ahead of you.


...cause I miss this place.

Follow your road

Live for the moment


Whisper a prayer

Sing even if nobody hears

Dance even if nobody sees

Live life

the way it should be

Make it something colorful every day.

Live for the moment.

Shout, sing and dance.

No one  would mind

As long as you’re happy.

I was watching an early morning show on baking and I was impressed with the quick and easy way they bake desserts. I am for simple recipes that I could make in less than an hour and which does not need too many ingredients. I have a favorite site that I watch when I am not too busy with household chores, they make baking so easy and enjoyable. I checked the pantry and I was lucky to find ingredients for raisin cookies. I hope Nate would love this when they come over tomorrow for a visit.

You may find the recipe here at this site.  These are larger than those in the recipe since I used an ice cream scooper instead of a tablespoon.

Roxas Blvd.

This is Roxas Blvd. after the rain this morning. A moment caught on cam. And you’ll wonder what was that lone runner thinking while traversing the long highway? Where are those ships going to?

Silence is the language of the morning. And that beautiful drawing  up in the sky, it’s nature at its best.

Ah, to remember those days of old. They make you smile  and nostalgic of course. Taking a trip  down memory lane to the max :)

Nissa called me up early this morning looking for a box where she put some CDs, a copy of their wedding invites and baby pictures which their official photographer used during their wedding reception. All of our photo albums were flooded six years ago when typhoon Ondoy hit Metro Manila. My son painstakingly wiped dry all our photos and collated those which can still be saved.  I looked at the photos she chose for the video, some are frayed at the edges but they evoked memories.

Nissa was around five or six here and Josef was 3.

Then I found this too, mixed with their baby pictures.  A former office mate took this shot years ago when I was still with BPI.

I love Sundays.

I came home from an early morning mass and thought of trying a banana bread recipe which I copied several days ago. I found this site . It’s a Japanese array of cuisines and desserts where I  found several recipes using pancake mix. They had me at “sugar-free”. I love it.

You could try this, here’s how.


150 grams Pancake mix

3 ripe bananas

1 egg

50 ml milk

Use a fork to mash the banana until creamy. Add the egg and mix thoroughly with a wire whisk. Stir in the milk.

Add the pancake mix and roughly mix it with a spatula. Lightly grease the cake pan with a little oil or butter then pour in the batter. Bake for 40 minutes at 180 °C.

That simple, I adjusted the amount of ingredients though using 4 ripe bananas, 200 grams pancake mix and 100 ml evaporated milk. It turned out like this, a yummy sugar-free banana bread.


Have a blessed Sunday everyone!
