Off to Dumaguete

We’ll be off to Dumaguete in around 3 hours time. This is part of our office’s annual outing, to de-stress us or just to purely act silly. We’ll be staying in a lovely resort, Antulang. Des is asleep, the kids are asleep as should I. We’ll be back on Monday!!

Busy as a bubuyug

These next few weeks will be choc-ful-o-work for me. Ever since I started managing the huge site, the workload also doubled in the office. So I guess my blogging will slow down seriously, as if it hasn’t already. I will try to post some updates about how my everyday turns out when I can steal some free time from all this. Till...

Choco Loco

Marco and I enjoying Mama Olives’ delicious chocolate cake! Happy Birthday Ate Olive!

Side Aid at the Aliw

Last night, we watched Side Aid, a benefit concert featuring Side A for PAGES (Philippine American Group(?) of Educators and Surgeons) foundation. Now PAGES has been coming to the country for the past 17 years helping Filipino children suffering from cleft pallates. My sister was one of the guests and she called me up and asked me if I wanted to watch it, then she mentioned Basil Valdez and it was an immediate no brainer. The show in itself was ok, thought the sound system was terrible, which dumbfounded me because Rene Cruz od EFX was personally handling the system, anyway that’s for another day. Side A was their usual self, same songs, same routine but same crowd reaction, amazing really, after all these years these guys are still truly a major draw, just ask my wife, she refuses to watch any other band but them. Rachelle Ann Go was good in her belter ways except when she snagged a few of the really high notes of her opening number. Agot, was well, Agot hehe. Still carrying herself majestically on stage. With a much more powerful voice now since she’s been doing stage for the past coupl of years. In all honesty? She needs practice ;). Basil at Aliw (pathetic photo) Basil was really something else. The last time I caught Basil was in a show in Mandarin Oriental’s Captains Bar. His voice then was rather shaky and unsure, which I really didn’t mind since we were watching a legend. But last night, it was vintage Basil Valdez, hitting the high notes on Ngayon at Kailanman, Kastilyong Buhangin plus doing a duet with Agot of 2 songs near and dear to every original Metro Pop fan, the Bambi Bonus/Richard Tann opus “Kailangan Ko, Kailangan Mo” and the every popular “Umagang Kay Ganda” by Tillie Moreno and Ray-An Fuentes. That in itself was worth the trouble of going through traffic. Safe to say, Basil’s back. Woot woot! Me and Dino inside the Aliw...

My Little Dessert Co.

Let me take this opportunity to pimp my sisters’ small business in my blog. I’m reprinting her email which doubles as her brochure. I hope to get her more clients by posting it here. Trust me her cakes are really good. Hello guys!!!! Hey there friends!!! I now have sugar free goodies for sale. Aside from my regular best-sellers, i have added these goodies for those who are diabetic or those who just want to cut back on their sugar in-take. Anyway, here are the prices for my sugar free products. I included na rin my regular cakes, just in case type nyo rin mag-order. Anyway, fyi lang, the sweeteners i use are isomalt and maltitol. I use a combination of sweeteners to get a more stable and moist cake. A word of caution lang, when eating sugar free products, it has to be in moderation kasi there are some side effects such as stomach cramps and diarreah. Some people experience it but some don’t. I personally have not experienced any of these side effects, nor has any member of my family who have been eating my goodies. I guess it depends on your own tolerance for such substances. Anyway, i hope you like them. Just give me at least 3 days advance notice! Also tell your other friends about this, okay!
