What's on Netflix


I was delighted when I saw Dawson's Creek while browsing on Netflix. It brought back the kilig and memories of countless chitchat over this series with friends. Remember when Joey sang the song On My Own? hayz nakakateenager na toh hihihi ๐Ÿ˜†


This movie reminds me of the time when I was working,  those late working nights, weekends spent in the office and those take home work, i kinda miss those times. I picked this movie the other day because of SJP. I was excited to see her outfits. She is really perfect for her role as Kate.

The third one is the one that moved me a lot, a very inspiring and heartbreaking. How will you change the world? Tough question, but Trevor has the most brilliant and simplest idea. 


Have a very nice day Pretties! 

Spread love and kindness :)

Week's Best #2 : Food and Light

Hello pretties, Happy Sunday!

My second entry for my Week's Best is all about food. I am somehow deprived from my usual cravings but sad to say my weight doesn't go down wahhh!
I went to the supermarket and at the entrance these yummy cakes welcomed me.


Oh sweets I miss you, while saying to myself na hindi kayo masarap hahaha! wahhh ang bitter ko!

Since I need sweets, I looked for a best healthier alternative,,, Fruits!!! Hindi talaga ako mahilig sa fruits, I can eat banana for my diet at mabusog agad ako, but hindi talaga ako. A friend recommended this zespri sungold kiwi, luckily I found it here. Ay super sarap sya, for someone na hindi talaga mahilig sa fruits talagang masarap sya promise, Nagulat talaga ako na masarap sya, compared dun sa green kiwi na natikman ko.


I paired it with grapes, I will surely buy this again tomorrow, mag hoard ako nito. I need to eat healthy kasi TTC kami. Anyway, super happy ako dito, best find for this week. =)




Everytime I see manga at bagoong, naalala ko ang paternal grandmother ko. I am her first grandchild and everytime pupunta sya sa bayan, everyday yun ang pasalubong ko pag nagbabakasyon ako sa kanila. Sa mga lola/nanay ko kasi may basket na nakasabit sa kusina, at sa hapon tatawagin nya ako at kukunin nya ung nakatago nyang mangga na may bagoong. sobrang memorable talaga sa akin. Sad na wala na sya today, she died when I was in college pa, sobrang painful kasi colon cancer. I wish she's here na ako naman ang magbibigay ng gusto nya, i'm sure sobrang happy nya sana. I love you Nanay Loring!


 It is getting darker here at night, unlike before na yung 10pm e parang 5pm lang. Husband found this at our local store, he put it sa stairs na ginawa nya. I took this photo when we arrived home late at natuwa ako kasi di na madilim sa daan namin. It is a solar and battery operated light. winner ang idea mo hon, love you!


 Have a lovely weekdays friendships!



Foodie: Easy Peasy Pandesal

Hi pretties,

Pandesal is always present on our table back home, kahit yung left over sa morning masarap pa ding meryenda, isasawsaw lang sa kapeng barako ok na. =)
I was encouraged to make our own pandesal by my friend May, she introduced to me this wonder machine in making pandesal, just put all the ingredients and the bread machine will mix them well and make it into dough.



Here's the ingredients:

1 cup luke warm water
1 pack yeast or 12g yeast
2 eggs
3/4 milk
1 cup sugar
1 kilo flour
salt
bread crumbs

Put them all together in the bread machine, after1.5 hours or so you have a good dough. Form your dough in a cylindrical shape and cut it in your desired size and roll it in bread crumbs. Let it rise for 30 minutes. Baked them in your oven for 10-12 minutes in 170 degC.

My finished product


Serve it with butter, coffee or tea. It is perfect anytime of the day. For the wives like me, enjoy your afternoon or night catching up with your husband after a tiring work and household chores with pandesal, simple tipid and sweet date!

Have a very nice weekend! God bless us =)
mwahugs!

PS. you can make a spanish bread in the same dough, for last night I made a bread with nutella filling. (sorry no picture).

Week's Best #1

Hi pretties!

Today is the launching of this new segment on my blog (ang arte ko segment daw oh hehehe, pagbigyan nyo na hehehe). I called this as Week's Best, why... wala lang parang Sunday's Best, Monday's Best ganun lang hihihi. Week's Best is the highlights of my week.

I really started my week cheerfully and lively, see my previous post last Monday. My black and white picture which Diane commented na ang "ganda ko" at kinilig ako Diane!!! Minsan may mga bagay talaga na di mo aakalain e, biruin nyo itinaas ko lang ang kamay ko sabay click ng camera e may maganda naman na kinalabasan (pagbigyan nyo na hehehe)...moving on na ang daldal ko...

Being a stay at home wife I am always looking for the opportunity to save, (pero tao lang, sometimes I splurge din). There were times that it took me hours on the internet reading reviews on high end skin products, but many times I mentioned here talaga that I am too lazy to religiously apply the creams, may toner pa eye cream and serum pa. I am more sa sabon e, CY gabriel, Likas Papaya and if may stock na available ako na makikita yung Royale Soap. But I really want to take care of my skin, sabi nga daw No. 1 is to moisturize ieemphasize ko ulit MOISTURIZE! And I really doesn't want to spend a lot on this beauty creams na baka di ko din magamit in the end. Then I remember na noong unang panahon, panahon ng mga lola at inay, titas natin e palaging Nivea Creme and hinihinging pasalubong at ang gaganda ng skin nila, since di nga kami mayaman di ko nakikita yang mga La Mer, Dior, Clinique, Clarins etc. pero ang gaganda ng skin ng mga dalaga, nanay at lola ko before at Nivea lang ang gamit nila. Last night up to this morning ang kati ng face ko siguro dahil sa lumalamig na dito, I was worried na talaga paggising ko, then I put the nivea creme on my face, medyo thick sya sa face but eventually ok na din sa pakiramdam ko at nawala ang itchyness ng face ko, dahil medyo malamig dito sa house ang sarap nya iapply ang lamig may moisturizer and cold cream na ako in 1.

I bought the lotion too. My husband was asking to buy a different one for the lotion but I told him same lang naman yun cheaper pa ang nivea, effective din naman. =)

Got this on our mailbox last Thursday, I tried na the soap before pa and it works on my face fine, kaya when we discovered na may reseller agent here my friend and I placed our orders, wala kasi talagang whitening products na mabibili dito.




Choco lovers, do you like this chocolate tree as your christmas tree? Me, I want!!! 


This is bad for my diet but I took just a bite to try its taste, yummy! ibebelly dancing ko na lang yung kinain ko hehehe. Ang hirap ng diet =(

Last weekend may peryahan dito malapit sa amin, they called it Tivoli here in Norway. Sobrang simple lang talaga, but full of fun. 


It was my lucky day, took home this 2kg chocolate!!! may pamigay na ako sa mga bata sa Trick or Treat hehehe.


I've been ignoring this coffee shop near the sentrum, but I want some hot coffee on that cold Sunday afternoon. I was delighted when I saw that there, they are serving new york cheesecake!!! Ang sarap sobrang namimiss ko na ito, super favorite ko kasi sa Coffee Bean yung new york cheesecake nila.


So that's my first entry for my Week's Best, I am praying that I can continue this "segment" forever!!! maniwala tayo na may forever hehehe! =) 



Friday and Saturday OOTD

Hello pretties,

It's been a while since I share an outfit of the day post, kaya pagbigyan nyo na hehehe. My husband and I went on our usual Friday date. It was raining non-stop since Monday and finally when we saw Mr. Sun we took our chance to have a walk and look around in the mall.

Here's my Friday's outfit:


Animal print longsleeve top: Bershka ~ animal prints on dress or shoes always catch my attention.
Jeans: New Yorker
Shoes: Toms

For Saturday, we decided to go to Oslo. I want to buy a polo shirt or jacket for my husband, and he ended up buying a jacket. Summer is ending kaya wala ako gaano makita poloshirts, puro cardigans or long sleeves e hindi mahilig si Mark magsuot nun.


It was my first time to wear this dress which I purchased last year pa, and my first day out with my bag. I love this bag so much, my first sling bag which made it easier for me to roam around. Even though it is a sunny Saturday I had to bring my pink coat because for sure it will get colder at night.



I was waiting for hubby as he was checking what size he will get for a jacket.

Dress: Bikbok
Black leggings
Coat: Zara
Shoes: Toms

Who is watching On The Wings Of Love, super kinikilig ako kina Lea at Clark!

Enjoy the week pretties! =)

Picture not so perfect

Hello beauties!

Last night I was motivating myself to be more productive and to find more interesting things to do. So I guess. preparing yourself to be on the move and on the mood really helps a lot.

I indeed woke up with a happy mood and has a more positive outlook today.


I grabbed my camera and took a picture of myself. Hopefully soon I can have a photoshoot wearing a two-piece LoL!


Despite the gloomy weather  today, I am inspired to wear my pink jacket from Zara which I think perfect with my purple tote bag. ( I seldom wear hats, coz I think it doesn't suit me, inggit tuloy ako sa iba who looks fab on hats, parang mala model e. )


This box with full of colors and sweets was given to us by my husband's officemate. My husband is very fortunate to meet nice and kind-hearted people, and the kindness he receives was extended to me. All time favorite back home.


Picture with Ate Alice and Audrey. This picture was taken last week. In life we met a lot of people everyday, enjoy the moment together, because someday either of you will move on with your life but happy memories will never leave you. Missing all my friends from Philippines, Singapore and Stavanger. uy senti,,, I am mesmerized with Audrey's beauty, syempre di kami nagpakabog ni Ate Alice. =)

This photo shows my favorite scent and lippies, Thank you May for the perfumes, love you. I took this picture last night. Why? I just want to be a photographer hihihi, frustrations ko ang pagkuha ng magandang picture, been looking for other photos in instagram bakit and sososyal at gaganda ng picture nila wahehehe. Someday I will master that skill. 


Have a lovely Monday everyone! =)

My Birthday :)

It was my birthday last Monday. Ang asawa ko ang punong abala. Super appreciated ko lahat ng ginagawa nya for me. He always make sure that he'll give his best for me. I remember the first time I had my birthday with him, just more than 2 months in a relationship, we were college then and I am not expecting anything from him, ok cge siguro nagexpect ako hehehe small gift from him or flowers ganun lang. We planned to go to a bar that night lahat kaming barkada. After our class I told mark to go home to change clothes kasi nakauniform pa kami, I told him that we should go separately and he doesn't need to bring me home. I rode a jerpney and when I was in front of our dorm I heard him calling me, tapos kinilig ako wahihihi on his hands was a giant bear from bear cuddler. Nagulat talaga ako kasi knowing him na kulang pa nga allowance nya eh hindi ko inexpect talaga pwede cguro small bear pero ganun kalaki hindi talaga. He told me it was part of his first earnings, he said he was lucky to have a client who asked him to do a house plan and very timely because he was thinking of my birthday. Basta ganun sya sobra basta para sa akin walang 2nd thought pwede naman nya ipunin yun.
ay napahaba na ang daldal ko talaga. 

Saturday before my birthday we went to Oslo. We ate to my new fave burger house Max. 


On Sunday, my husband made a stair going to our house. We invited kasi all his  Filipino colleagues for my birthday small salo-salo. 

           sipag, cook pa yan ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

Super touched talaga ako sa lahat ng efforts nya for me. 

๐ŸŽถclose your eyes...make a wish๐ŸŽถ happy birthday to me ๐ŸŽถ


Aside from all the cooking and works he did for my birthday, he bought something nice for me. ❤️❤️❤️

my pandora's birthday charm 


and my new bag Alma BB in Amarante

Thank you hon! 


Thank you Lord for another year, I am excited for all the blessings you will give me on the next days of my life. Thank you for giving me a very loving and wonderful husband, a supportive and loving parents, family and friends. I learned that small or big blesings are still a blessing. Thank You for teaching me to be more appreciative and grateful. Love You Lord. ๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜˜

Foodie: Baked Salmon

I posted here before the cheesy baked salmon recipe, this one is another version  which I think is more affordable and most of the ingredients are available at home. 

Ingredients:

salmon fillet
soy sauce
oyster sauce
worcester sauce
lemon or lime
salt 
pepper
honey
paprika
garlic
small tomato (optional)
olive oil



Pre-heat the oven.

Place the salmon in a baking dish and season with salt and pepper, put the lemon or lime juice (whichever is available)

Combine the soy sauce, worcester sauce, oyster sauce, honey, pepper and olive oil,  then pour the mixture to the fish. 

Put the sliced paprika, crushed garlic, sweet tomato on top of the fish.

Cover the salmon with aluminum foil then baked it for 20 mins at 180 deg C, after 20 mins remove the cover and change your oven setting to the one on which your fan is on and wait for 20 mins, but always check because it tends to dry the sauce, c hubby kasi gusto nya medyo masauce. 

here is my finished product. ๐Ÿ˜Š


my share, it is 12 days now without rice, and this meal is my happy meal. I super love this recipe which I cook once a week. 

I put some sliced cucumber pampahealthy at pampadami hehehe.
