Last December, my boys and I decided to go on a 5-day road trip up north ~ a family tradition we do every end of year. We spent a few nights in Ilocos Sur, Ilocos Norte, and Abra. Unfortunately, it was raining hard throughout our stay in Pagudpud (Amihan season for that area, sadly), but on one of the days that the weather was forgiving, Bobby and I decided to drive all the way to Claveria, Cagayan (the nearest town from where we were).
The first time we were here, pre-Yñigo days, Bobby & I would drink under the stars, listen to the waves crashing into the shore, talking about how life would be. Who would have thought that we'd come back, somewhat do the same things, but this time with our kulit son in tow?
Whipping up dishes every night (or day for that matter) may be fulfilling, but exhausting for some. Just thinking of what to cook, spending hours to prepare, and the actual act of cooking can be so time-consuming that you might miss out on other things that you want or need to do. So for the moms, dads, professionals out there, or for those who live alone, let City Chef make life easier for you! Spend more time on things that matter while they do the cooking.
Handloom weaving is considered a traditional craft in various regions. It is an intricately practiced, centuries-old tradition performed by tribes all over the country. It’s labor intensive, and depending on what region it’s produced in, it will utilize materials such as buri, inabel, raffia, pineapple, abaca and more.
It's that time of the year again when people write their resolutions, change their hairstyles, using the hashtag #NewYearNewME. I don't fault anyone for wanting to change 'cause I've always been the type to do the same. How was your 2017 like? Join us as we take a look back to the year that was.
After publishing some of my recent social media ramblings, I got some much feedback from my friends, colleagues, and even fellow moms. I wasn’t alone. I always knew I wasn’t, but it’s different when even the most random of people decide to confess to you about what they’re going through — to the extent of asking advice on what to do.
