Nilagang Baboy, Now More Delicious with Ajinomoto's Porksavor™

One of the many, many things I am so proud of and thankful for my little foodie is that she's not really a pickytarian! However, as she's beginning to be a food-lover like I am, she now knows how to differentiate what's delicious from not. And not to brag, she really devoured and asked for more of the 9 out of 10 dishes I cooked for her! What's left for me is the challenge of keeping up with her growing appetite and not to disappoint her.

"My daughter's photos, once a week, every week, in 2014."

My life as a stay-at-home military wife and mom is not so easy. You see, I've already started a small food biz but I still don't have a helper/nanny to help me with house chores and in taking care of Pia. I do everything by myself! So yeah, I need to tag the girl along with me whenever I shop for Bebeng's Kitchen's needs to wherever. One day, when we were at the supermarket, she hurriedly rushed to this poster of Derek Ramsay and said: "Derek is everywhere. I hope Teacher L is proud of him." Teacher L, her first teacher in preschool, joked one time that DR is her boyfriend. And my innocent baby girl believed her since then. Hahaha! 

That's it for now. Sorry if there are some of you (hello, do I still have readers?) who are kinda waiting for this every week and find no new post. I'm catching up, panting and still finding time to breathe through blogging amidst the never-ending list of to-dos as a geographically single mompreneur. ♥ xx

Filipino Costumes for Buwan ng Wika

Oh moms, I know you know how it thrilling it is to dress up our little ones, especially on special occasions! But we also know that it can be expensive and tiring. Huffing and puffing just by thinking about it? I know, right? LOL. Sometimes, we don't even know which one to get or where to buy. As a stay-at-home hands-on mom to a preschooler (graduating already woot woot), those little events in her school are special to me. So I research (i.e., to Google or visit all branches of SM), take note from other moms or practice extortion to my daughter's godparents (hihi).

Bebeng's Kitchen: The First Month

So... To date, I baked and sold almost 500 pieces of banana choco chip muffins and 20 banana loaves and made 160 boxes of graham balls. I even made a DIY sticker label to as if legitimized my biz's existence. It's Bebeng's Kitchen's first monthsary today! Yay!

A lot of people have messaged me about it when I started and created a Facebook page and started inviting friends to like it — suggesting business-y stuff, congratulating me for making the brave move (yes, starting a biz with no definite amount of capital IS a brave move) and just plainly letting me know how happy and proud they are for me. We are not related to each other, most of these people. Yes, not family, not super close friends. It's okay, you know. Really. If my old self experienced it, I'm sure that I could have stopped. But no, this time, I'm so driven to succeed... so eager to reach my goals.
