Miss You Like Crazy

My daughter Acey and I have watch the film "Miss You Like Crazy" yesterday in Robinson. All I can say is that John Lloyd & Bea Alonzo are perfect partners on screen. I like the fact they did not have a second thought to portray mature roles this time. Yes, there were kissing scenes but was done in good taste. It's so obvious in the said movie that both have given their best in their acting and have met the expectation of the great director Cathy Garcia Molina, needless to say, I'm a huge fan of direct Cathy. I have watch 90% of the movies she directed.

It's still weekend and if you're not busy, I highly recommend you watch "Miss You Like Crazy", it's time to feel in love even if it is only by watching this film.

Touching Valentine Message

Even if hubby and I have not celebrated Valentines Day for the past years, I can still claim that my Valentine every year is complete with the presence of my kids. I treasure the valentine cards I received from my kids.

Acey made a Valentine card days before Valentines day. She drew in the card a woman too focus watching TV as if she doesn't care whatever is happening in her surroundings. Admittedly, that's how I am especially during weekends. Watching my favorite shows is what I love doing and my kids know that very well.

On the other hand, CJ made a huge valentine card which was actually a project in their school and this is the actual message written on the card...

Dear mom and dad,

This is your son CJ. Mom, I want to say that you have the same attitude as the Maiasaurus which its name means good carrying mother like in the Dinosaur King show in episode 6 & 13. In episode 6 the Maiasaurus did anything to protect its egg and in episode 13, the acrocontosaurus did anything to go to the volcano and the island to protect the fossils of its mate and son and for dad, he is like a deinonychus which its name means terrible claw and the deinonychus work hard to find food. Like dad he work hard to give us money and transport the money to us.

from your son CJ

My son is engrossed with Dinosaurs. He always watch dinosaur films and shows via youtube and when he does, all the dinosaurs figures are scattered on the computer table.

I was elated after receiving those cards that I decided to do a quick visit at Marquee Mall and bought my kids valentine gift...luckily different Baby G watches were on sale.

Kids know things that can make you happy. Kids know how to express their love in very unique and innocent way.

Belated Happy V Day to all!!!

Buffalo Chicken

Here's what I made last Sunday for my family for dinner, Buffalo Chicken. I got the recipe from the website of my favorite chef Aileen Anastacio. I didn't know it was this easy. My kids preferred gravy for dipping, good thing I kept the chicken stock in the fridge when I made chicken sandwich a week ago.


10 Chicken wings

1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
10 chicken wings

Coat wings and fry for 10 to 15 minutes, or until parts golden brown. Remove from heat and immediately coat wings with the hot sauce mixture.

1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup hot sauce
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper

Combine the butter, hot sauce, garlic powder, salt and pepper in a small saucepan over low heat. Stir together and heat until butter is melted and mixture is well blended. Remove from heat and reserve for serving.

1/4 cup butter
1 tablespoon flour
1 cup chicken stock

Heat butter, then add the flour, mix together, pour chicken stock. Turn off the fire when mixture thickens.

Try it this weekend!

Long to Short

Before the fieldtrip, I brought my daughter Acey in the parlor for a haircut. Few days before that, I noticed split ends on Acey's long & layered hair so I thought it's about time for a new hairdo. In addition to that, she will be a flower girl in her favorite uncle's wedding this coming May so the length of her hair will be perfectly long by that time. Here is the before and after...

When CJ & Acey showed me the paper from their school to notify parents about the fieldtrip, I told them we will just join next year but my daughter Acey begged because she haven't been to Enchanted Kingdom. On the second thought, I realized kids deserve a break from the third periodical exam, so I gave in. My sister in law and her kids joined too which made the fieldtrip more exciting.

There were 13 buses, approximately 650 students, teachers & parents joined the filedtrip last January 30, 2010. Assembly started as early as 4am. We were at bus # 3 and each bus has a tour guide, ours was Kuya Owel, funny and

First stop was the Sumo Sumo production area. Kids were ask to sit down, hands up and wave, afterwards, they showed in the monitor the finish product. Kids were flying like superheroes. The next room was the dubbing area. A teacher and a parent were ask to read the scripts or dialogue with feelings of an anime film.

We proceeded to watch the Davao Crocodile Show. It's not only crocodiles that we got to see. CJ & Acey were able to touch an albino and shake hands with a monkey. I didn't get to see other animals because I went to a shaded area. I'm not fond of zoo and animals. I just go there during fieldtrips and for the kids.

We rode the Pasig River ferry cruise. Kudos to the people working to make the Pasig River clean ang pleasing to the eyes. Students, parents and teachers were educated about history of the said river. We passed by the different bridges and saw the back of Malacanang Palace while on cruise. Let's participate in the "Piso para sa Pasig" project by giving a peso or more.

Before going to Enchanted Kingdom, we were given an hour to take our lunch in Mall of Asia. My sister and I would like to try the dishes from any resto in MOA but the kids insisted that we just eat in KFC. I wanted to try yogurt ice cream and crepes too but my tummy is saying otherwise.

The highlight of the fieldtrip was going to Enchanted Kingdom that was unbelievably jampacked. You have to fall in line for more than an hour to be able to enjoy a ride. We decided to just watch a 30 minute magic show. We paid 50 pesos for the Simon & Silver magic show. Oh boy, it was mesmerizing and entertaining and I must say it's the cheapest yet amazing magic show I've ever seen in my entire life.

We all enjoyed the fieltrip immensely. We got home at 11pm.
