Our first time in Cebu!

Yes, you read it right folks, it was our first time to visit the queen city of the south. Me and hubby had the chance to explore Cebu City in one and a half day, hahaha! The experience is awesome that we wanted to go back with our kids next time.

So many stories to tell about our quick Cebu trip. But for now just a glimpse of our hectic day in Cebu.

The Marcelo Fernan Bridge

This 1.2 km bridge was named after one of the famous political figure in Cebu, Sen. Marcelo B. Fernan. I remember my grandfather says lots of good things about this man. Maybe he's such a great man that's why this bridge was named after him. This bridge connect the islands of Mactan and Cebu City.

More entries coming.... enjoy reading :)

Cinnabon and me

I am a big fan of cinnamon rolls! After college, my good friend (who was hired at Cinnabon) introduced me to the world of cinnamon rolls. I, who was hired then at a famous coffee shop did not even try our own cinnamon swirl, hehehe ... I am so much addicted to Cinnabon only! Hubby and our eldest son love it too, every payday expect that I always have a box of cinnamon rolls for them :)

But six years ago, my hubby was diagnosed to have a diabetes ... and so, much had been change with our eating habits. Preventing almost all our favorite cakes, sweet breads and the likes. Would you believe that after all those years, I only had the chance to eat one at the airport! Our flight schedule is 5:00 in the morning so we were at the terminal at exactly 3:00 am. I felt hungry while waiting so I asked hubby if we can look around for something to eat. Alas! theres a small Cinnabon store inside the terminal. I first asked for the approval of my hubby if it's okay to buy a cinnamon roll, since he's now a healthy diabetic (controlled blood sugar) he allowed me to buy one for us to share and a Cafe Latte too. Yiheee!!!

I tell you, the smell of this bread drives me crazy... I super love it when it is very warm... Before eating it, I closed my eyes and smile... it was like reconnecting to an old friend... a very dear friend.

It was then that I realized.....

How I terribly miss you ... my Cinnabon!

Me at 3:00 in the morning :)

It's nice to be back!!!

Bonding with Jeffrey, HP7 Part 2 and a Playdate too!

Yesterday was Jeffrey's last day of exam, so even if i'm not feeling well yesterday I decided to treat him for being good and patient while we were reviewing his notes before and during his exams days. I am very happy for we are blessed with sons (Justine and Jeff) who are very diligent when it comes to their studies. I could not ask for more, they always give their best!

After lunch me and Jeffrey went to SM North to watch the part two of Harry Potter's The Deathly Hollows. Before buying our tickets, we strolled first and look for some things inside the department store. I asked Jeff if he wanted to buy some bread at Beadtalk but he declined, he just wanted a big tumbler of popcorn to munch on inside the cinema. While watching the movie, he kept on asking me about the characters in the movie ( it's his first time to watch a HP movie) he seems very curious about the wizarding world. Good thing is that I know all the characters in the book and in the movie of course so I willingly answer all his questions :) After the movie, he asked me if we could eat at his favorite burger house (Wham Burger)and I said "of course my dear" I ordered our usual favorite which is Wham Burger with Cheese, Fries and his fave soda... Royal!

See how happy he was enjoying his fave burger :)

Well, it was like hitting two birds with one stone yesterday. I treated Jeff and I treated myself too! I've been wanting to watch HP 7 Part 2 since the opening day but I couldn't because I was busy making reviewers for Jeffrey. I'm super excited and sad at the same time for I know that this is the last installment of the HP movies. I've come to love the characters especially the trio :) Anyway, I know that they'll be remembered for they made history! Congrats to JK Rowling for writing such great books and congrats to all who were involved in all the HP movies!!!

While on our way home, I remember that my friend Cheryl Diaz invited me too attend an event organized by them. It's called Mommy Rs (Relax, Rekindle, Rave and Reward) it's actually a "playdate" for moms and their kids. I'm sure there will be lots of fun here and what I like most is that there will be another bonding moment for me and Jeffrey. Bonus is that, I'm sure we can meet new friends, moms like me and new playmates for Jeffrey too! He can interact freely to children of his age by playing and joining different activities. I'm so excited and looking forward to this event.

How about you? Do you want to attend this event too? Well, check this out for details ;)

See you there!!!
