I grew up in a family who values education. I've seen both my parents sponsor other kids in their quest to finish school. We were blessed enough that my siblings and I got various forms of scholarships that my parents were able to save enough from our tuition to send other kids to school. I didn't think that I would be given the opportunity to do the same.
One thing I've learned from other couples with children is to have some alone time with your significant others. Tonight is one of those times. I took A on a date to watch
It's been six months since I've last posted. A lot has happened in the household that I decided to wait for a few (alright, half a year) to write about it. A lot of good things (two major ones to be exact) have happened to us and a lot of adjustments are still being made.
Now, who wouldn't appreciate people who would bring in a 1kg bar of Cadbury and a soon-to-be extinct in the Philippines Häagen-Dazs Ice Cream (Thank God you still found some!)? Thanks for giving me a reason to smile today giftgivers!
This has got to be one of the biggest blessings we've received. It has saved us quite an amount of money to pay for the groceries and other items from the SM Group because we can use the points to pay for the items that we buy. We also have a hangout spot in the mall, not to mention the unlimited complimentary drinks that we could avail at the SM Prestige Lounge. All thanks to A's family.
BDO Prestige is a rewards card given to certain BDO accountholders. The privileges of the SM Advantage Prestige card is extended to BDO Prestige as well. Cardholders can also avail of special deal offers through SMAC deals.
I used to avoid going to SM before like a plague because of the human traffic inside the mall. It gets much worse when the mall is on sale, plus the vehicular traffic that it causes on the streets. Now, in order for us to accumulate and/or use points, I go there to shop.
I just hope that they get to tie up with SM Cinemas also =)
Cyma is one of my favorite restaurants. Nothing on their menu that I didn't like. I would understand why certain restaurants would charge an arm and a leg on some of their dishes, but there are just those that are downright too expensive. And I have that one dish in Cyma that I like, but disagree on the price: Roka Salata. It's simply greens tossed in greek dressing, but costs more than Php300 for a solo serving. That's just not right.
And now, a miracle of all miracles, my favorite crew from pepper.ph made my dreams come true by successfully hacking through the recipe. Behold, pepper. ph's version of Cyma's Roka Salata!

You can find a copy of their recipe from their site here. I've been searching high and low for a recipe of their dressing. It didn't occur to me to add mustard the whole time I was experimenting with it. And just to make sure that I wouldn't forget the recipe of the greek dressing, I'm going to write it down here:
1 tbsp mustard
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1/4 cup honey
2-3 tbsp sugar
1 cup extra virgin olive oil
pinch of salt
pinch of pepper
There it is. Now, we can all impress our guest with this delicious dressing! All thanks to the wonderful people of pepper.ph!
