A Weekend Story #9: Food Trip at La Creperie

IMG_0641-001

I love this part of San Juan, New Manila where La Creperie is located at because it’s the only place in the metro which is quite peaceful, clean, and quiet. Cj and I love the structure of the houses here, if one day we win in the lottery we’ll surely buy a house and lot here. Well, the big question is…. tumataya ba kami sa lotto? Well, all I can say is…it’s for you to find out! LOL! Anyway, going back to the story… usually napapadaan lang kami dito sa part ng New Manila but last Saturday night when we passed by this street I accidentally saw La Creperie. I’ve always wanted to try this resto but the thing is… I’m too lazy to google it so I don’t know where it is located. Thanks heaven I discovered La Creperie last weekend. Feeling ko it’s really meant to be! Chos! :p

Easter Sunday: The Resurrection of The Lord Jesus Christ

IMG_0172-001

I noticed that nowadays some people tend to forget the real essence of Easter Sunday. I’m no Saint neither a preacher but I just wanted to remind all of us that Easter is about celebrating the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ. Bear in mind that Jesus Christ sacrificed his own life just to save us from our sins so let us not forget the real meaning and purpose of Easter Sunday. It’s not about the Easter bunnies and candies that we used to get at Easter celebrations.

Holy Week 2014

IMG_9965

Before the Lenten month ends I just wanted to share our memorable Holy Week that my family spent at my hometown, Antipolo. It’s our family’s tradition to spend our Holy Week break in Antipolo, I bet most Filipinos do the same thing too. It feels good to share all my childhood memories (here in my hometown) with my son because this is the place where I grew up. Lahat ng kanto, lahat ng sulok ng lugar nato ay punong puno ng masasaya (at malungkot) na karanasan. Continue reading

KMS Cooks: Italian Pasta Casserole

IMG_9947-001

I don’t always have enough time cook at home especially during weekdays since I’m working but once I cook I make sure that it’s always special. I can turn a simple dish into a gourmet dish, just like what I did in this recipe that I’ll be sharing today. This is not an ordinary pasta dish because I used two different kinds of cheese here. It has mozzarella andย  cheddar cheese, and it was baked too. The cheese definitely gives this pasta dish an extra kick and distinctive taste. I bet all cheese lover will surely love this! Mozzarella is to die for!

And so it has been decided that we’re having home-made pepperoni pizza for dinner. ๐Ÿ™‚
