Pilates with Toys

By | Health and Fitness | 2 Comments

My friends Jay and Carmen, owners of  B+B Studio , asked me to try this new class they have at the Manila Polo Club.  I went two weeks ago to check it out. The toy they used that day was the fitness circle.  Each class uses a different toy.

Baguio Country Club’s Pastry Shop

By | Foodie, Travel | 4 Comments

This has got to be everyone’s favorite spot at the club!!  I was surprised to see it renovated since the last time I was in Baguio!  There is much more space to sit down and eat.  And now you can place your orders in advance especially for the ever popular raisin bread.  The cakes are delicious especially the St. Michael and the Carrot cake.  They have a strawberry shortcake which is also very good but there was none when I visited, probably sold out! Still have to try the others.  The chocolate truffles are new!!!

Heart2Heart is proud to launch the new line of “worry-free household cleaners” by my sister, Krie.

She created the whole line and developed it herself.  Heart2Heart was one of the first ones to test and try the products. Not only is it environmentally friendly, but the workers that produce and pack the products are from a foundation started as well by Krie called HOUSE.  Congratulations Krie and to Messy Bessy!!!!16.jpg 21.JPG32.JPGOther entry: Thank you from Messy Bessy[email_link] 

Baguio Foodie

We normally just enjoy eating home and going to Starbucks when in Baguio, but this time, Thanks to Tammy, Dina, Ria and Ramon, we got to try quite a number of restaurants in our 4 day stay.  Many of them have been there for a long time and we see them in passing but we have never tried them. Maybe they should come with us everytime we go to Baguio so we get to try another bunch of restos :-) 

Hamada- Japanese Teppanyaki at Baguio Country Club

Cantinetta – Quality and taste is just as good as the Manila branch- ordered our usual favorites – Spaghetti Bolognese, pizzas and the Tartufo pasta.  Location:  Camp John Hay, beside Starbucks

House of Waffles – Former Country Waffles.  The place was full for breakfast!  They now have Korean food to probably cater to the Korean golfers in John Hay.  Located near the entrance of the John Hay Golf Clubouse beside Starbucks.

Mile Hi Diner – Recommended by Heather.  Typical American diner food, nice ambience.  Same owner as Carlo’s Pizza.  Address:  Mile Hi, Camp John Hay

O’ Mai Khan – Recommended by Chris.  Ramon wanted Mongolian BBQ.  They had an extensive menu aside from the Eat all you can Monolian BBQ. Address: 12 Otek, Baguio City  ( near Burnham Park )  Phone: (074)442-5885

The Baguio market is always a haven of fresh items!!!


Fresh Strawberries!!!!

By | Travel, Yummy! | 4 Comments

Visited the Strawberry Fields in La Trinidad.  As strawberries are not yet in season, there were hardly any strawberries to be picked.   There were vendors selling strawberry taho ( P 10.00 ) and strawberry ice cream ( P 10.00 )  by the fields.  The kids enjoyed the taho!

Fresh strawberries are always something to look forward to when going to Baguio whether picking them fresh from the fields or buying they from the market.  Yummy!!! [email_link]

I visited Tita Monique one afternoon to do a photo shoot for Town and Country.  She took my photo and I took photos of her house.  With her permission, here are some photos of her beautiful living room which she designed herself.  Being a photographer, you will notice many of her photos on the wall. 


Christmas Wish List

By | Christmas, For kids, What's New at Rustan's | One Comment

WHAT A GREAT IDEA!!!  Just like a wedding, it is so hard to guess what the couple will need.  Same thing with Christmas, imagine having to guess what toy to get for the kids in your christmas list.  Rustan’s makes it easier for you through the CHRISTMAS WISH LIST GIFT REGISTRY.  So have your kids sign up and register and start making their wish list….they can even tell Santa to just go to Rustan’s to see what they want for Christmas! :-)

And for Citibank cardholders, another special treat this Christmas,  priority gift wrapping service!!
