Nazareth's New Garbage Disposal

Garbage disposal here in our community is a major problem. Garbage cluttered at the sidewalk of the main road where we pass by. Theres is too much garbage thrown that it already exceeded the garbage containers (2 barrels) capacity . And then other people still leave their garbage which animals will clutter it on the road before the schedule of picking-up.
It's a good thing they now place a new large container for garbage disposal. Hopefully people will now be responsible to choose tall kids who will be throwing their garbage bags at the garbage container so that the garbage will shoot inside properly.

Pinoy Delicacy: Biko

Filipino Food Biko
Filipino Food Biko

Good Friday. Rather than the usual binignit we prepared biko (rice cake topped with caramel topping or latik). I bought for the ingredients and then my neighbor cook for it and then we share it after. My mom got lazy cooking biko even if she does know how to cook it because she was thinking that only 3 of us going to eat it and added to that mom and I cant eat to much of food which was cooked with coconut milk in it (or even oily foods) because if we do our heads would be aching and feel dizzy the whole time. In short kabuhion me... :D

Holy Week 2011

My Lenten Season vacation which started last Holy Thursday was spent at home doing movie marathon. Even my son, Justine, was doing some vacation from roaming around the neighborhood since he just stayed at home and was watching his DVD's from morning til night. Though he sometimes play with his toys in between and then back too his marathon.
Cagayan de Oro has a hot climate during the day and then gloomy most of the time on the afternoon from Holy Thursday until Black Saturday. And just last Holy Thursday the water levels of the river in Our Lady of Guadalupe Shrine in Igbalalay Hills, Cagayan de Oro City rises quickly and that there were 8 people who were washed away.
The eight pilgrims from Barangay Bugo were washed by strong currents as they negotiated the third of nine river crossings en route to the Birhen sa Guadalupe Shrine at Igbalalay Hills in Barangay Balubal, on their way down at around 7 o’clock Thursday evening. Responding rescuers plucked them out of the river an hour later, as they were clinging on to rocks and tree roots at the riverbank. Three were rushed to the hospital with one of them needing confinement due to the severity of her injuries.

Share ko lang to coz I like the view of the city last Good Friday hindi nga lang nabigyan ng justice sa digital camera ko... hehehe
Me and Justine watching the view of the city....

Justine while playing, nagbreak time sa dvd marathon niya... :

Pinoy Delicacy: Kiping

This is what we call kiping. It's main and only ingredient is cassava. How it is done? Well the cassava was grind and then rolled flat on a banana leaf cut into rectangular size. Im sorry I haven't posted some picture on the procedure, I'll shall add it here when our neighbor will cook again kiping. ;)

Now for the sauce on top of it is what we refer locally as "latik". It's actually a coconut milk and sugar mixed together. Cooking latik is not easy coz it needs continuous stirring so that it will not dry out and harden.

Bonding with Friends At Limketkai

It was a blast day yesterday after I went Missy Bon Bon's Gelatorama, I had the chance to hangout with Janlac and Cherry. If I haven't mention it yet in this blog, both Cherry and Janlac have been my co-worker last year.
It was never a planned actually, I just texted Janlac if she's in Limketkai Mall and when she replied yes I then went over to her most favorite place in the mall --Worlds of Fun. Indeed she was there busy playing along with Cherry and also on Janlac's hand was a bag of stuffed toys and other prizes she gained from the WOF tickets. Which reminds me to thank Janlac for the stuffed toy she gave last month... Well, actually it was more of a "toynap" coz I didn't gave it back to her the moment I played with it. :D
Janlac loves collecting stuffed toys from Worlds of Fun that is why she always budget money and time visiting the place almost every weekend. Yeah a different kind of addiction which is beneficial coz playing is one of the best escape after a long week of work stress.

After a few games more at Worlds of Fun we then ate at Greenwich. And then went to CD-R King coz Cherry bought a mouse and lastly to Missy Bon Bon wherein our lucky table won an additional 1 cup of gelato.

Missy Bon Bon's 1st Anniversary

Yesterday was the 1st year anniversary of Missy Bon Bon! There were already lots of people inside and outside when I arrive. Everyone are busy eating and purchasing goodies and snacks. But the highlight of the celebration was the Gelatorama, it was like a feast of gelato's! There was a lot of new flavors to choose from and for costumers who had the Gelatorama pass including me had a blast of the unlimited gelato scoops.
There were also lots of prizes given like if you purchase a 200 worth of goodies will have the chance to pick an egg where you can found a prize inside. In the evening also there was a live band, Q & A games and prizes found under selected tables and chairs. Our table won a prize of yet another cup of gelato... hahaha

Heres our empty cups with my fellow CDObloggers...

Measles Vaccination

There was a house-to-house measles vaccination from Nazareth Health Center for ages 0-7 today. My Justine got vaccinated too! Though it was kinda crazy a neighbor and a health center representative had to help me hold him because at first attempt I almost fell from the monoblock chair we are seating, my little guy was very afraid and hysterical. And because of Justine's constant moving, the nurse had to inject him again because the injection was not properly injected. He was worried the needle might break so he had to pull it again and inject a new one. Scary!
When Justine was still a little, he was never like this when he had his scheduled immunization though... Does your town provide free measles vaccination also?

Missy Bon Bon's Gelato Rama

Justine and I just had a Gelato bonding at Missy Bon Bon last week. We match our Gelato's with
our most fave desert mango float!
Justine ordered this Fruit Salad Gelato and requested to placed a cherry on top...
And for me I tried the flavor that I haven't tasted yet and I think a new flavor, the Mixed Berry Yogurt. It is tasty I do hope its going to be available on the Gelato Rama I would definitely pick that as well as the Green Apple Yogurt. :D
It's 3 days to go before the First year anniversary of Missy Bon Bon which will be on April 16, 2010. Are your passes ready of the unlimited scoop of gelato for the Missy Bon Bon's Gelato Rama?

Where is the Freedom of Expression in Social Media?

Just the other day I heard a news on Fox News about an employee got fired because of her Facebook status update about boss' salary. Then last Friday Willie Revillame rants on TV about suing people who express their opinions on Twitter regarding the Jan2x issue. And then just last some people rants hate tweets to Tim Yap for tweeting the Binibining Pilipinas 2011 winners in advance while the said event is airing in progress in ABS CBN. Some people said Tim Yap intentionally post the spoiler to spite the rival channel where Tim is currently working and some said for publicity. For me, I actually don't see any wrong on what Tim did because the fact that others who have seen the coronation night in Araneta also tweeted the results.
From @harold_geronimo
Around 82 people who were in Araneta tweeted the winners earlier. Blame it to ABS-CBN for delayed airing. Twitter is real-time.
And why is it during Manny Pacquioa's fight and others tweeted earlier for the results nobody rants about it as spoiler? hmmm.. thats odd.
We should remember that celebrities like Tim Yap are people who also has the freedom to express what they want to say on their own social media accounts as long as they don't abused it.
People has so much hate to express but not much love to give... Why not do the other way for a change? You will not just free yourself from stress but also contribute in world peace which exactly what we need right now. In addition, if you dont like what he/she is expressing then unfollow or unfriend them. Dont waste your time hating others for their status updates and opinions. Express what you want to express but stop hate attacks! There's a lot of other important things to worry about yo...
Ika nga ni @kbrosas
Ang daming problema sa mundo, mga trahedya, gera etc...dun ako affected...demanda dahil sa opinion?? Wait na lng natin kung mangyayari yon:)

Stylish Grandma's!

Young women your going to be an old women someday. Don't worry about it. Don't sweat it! Don't worry about getting older... Every era, it builts character!

How I wish I had grandma's like them-- a fashionista. If I did has... I bet we both would have a great deal of things to talk about from colors, designs, shoes and accessories. We would definitely have shopping and styling as bonding moments, hmmm... that certainly is sounds good. On the contrary, I do have such a strict lola and everytime she sees me wearing something sexy and unusual she would immediately criticize it or worst even labeled you as some "hooker". Yeah right!
I do hope everyone can understand the deep meaning of fashion... Fashion is not what about you wear but about confidence and getting a comfortable feeling from what you are wearing and definitely not just for display.
