I’m sure you’re already feeling the intense summer heat. While I love that we get to experience long days of sunshine, I have to say that the heat can get very exhausting if you don’t find a way to cool down. That’s why I decided to create a list of the best summer destinations near Manila that we’ve tried and loved. I will keep building on this list as we go on more adventures with our kids!
I was frustrated, disappointed, and angry today. I haven’t been that way since the Manila Water Crises started. But, today it was different. I woke up with all our stored water gone. It was an unspoken rule at home, but everyone understood that it’s a must to fill up our water drums with water when you use them up so whoever needs the supply next will have water to use. Not everyone understood that agreement, unfortunately.
Who here loves coffee? I’m a coffee lover, but I never really thought about making my own coffee. Funny, isn’t it? I usually just go to my favorite cafes and order my favorite brews from them. It was only recently that I decided to try learning how to brew my own cup so my husband and I can enjoy cafe-style coffee at home. Since one of our favorites is the syphon-brewed coffee of Lido, I signed up for Cooko Culinary and Barista Academy’s Syphon Coffee Workshop.
I remember my transition from having just one child to having two as a glorious phase. Really, I felt like I was a parenting expert! My first two are around 18 months apart and the transition was pretty easy. My eldest is quite independent so I didn’t have a problem with clinginess when her brother came along. She just did her own thing. My second was such an easy baby–no problems with breastfeeding, no problems with sleeping. He was a generally happy baby. But, becoming a mom of 3 was an entirely new ballgame. Our third definitely kept my ego in check. Parenting expert? Think again, lady.
