Throwback, some of my home food prepping during the time my cousin Gie and her son was with us. During their Europe vacation.

That was linner, the first meal I prepared for my cousin Gie and her son. Oven trout, salad, Sarma ( stuffed cabbage), and knuckle of pork (Stelze) and because we are Filipinos rice is a must!

Here again brekky with boiled Frankfurter, toast bread, strawberry in sour cream, coffee and tea. The time my cousin Gie and her son took their vacation in Vienna. Of course my doggy Mary and Riyad also on the picture.

My spaghetti requested by Noah, Gie’s son (cousin). Bolognese is the sauce I made for them with grana padano cheese plus salad and sliced apples. Someone requested for coffee and tea too.

Food memories brekky a la Pinoy (Filipino) too heavy never again! Imagine; fried rice, longganisa, fried tuyo, scrambled eggs, sunny side egg, and for dipping vinegar with chili spicy of course plus tea and coffee Jesus Christ! What unhealthy life style never again!



The day we visited the place where my mother came from. NABAS, AKLAN and since we were already in the Malay island of course we experienced Bora or Boracay, Antique particularly Idio and Tibiao too. At the same time reunited with my cousin Chona aka Ching and her kids. Had a wonderful time with relatives and the place is wonderful. Hope to come back soon for more exciting adventure and food tripping. Thank you for watching please don’t forget to subscribe.🤗



Here we are after dinner waiting for the next viewing of film entitled “Miss Granny OST/ by Sara Geronimo. September last year 2018, yes a year ago.

Finally! After 36 years, I was able to visit again this place where my roots are. Nothing better than going home🏡 to FAMILY where L❤️VE is and eating 🍽 good food!😇

My relatives at Home 🏡 people who may know me knows that I’m the only child of my late parents. That’s the reason why cousins whom I’m close with are just like brothers and sisters for me.

Here we are the four of us with our daughter. From left: Lea and daughter Ferrine, moi with Diana-Grace, Arlinda with Nicole and Fely with Kath.❣️

Seeing my high school best friends 👭👭 is also one reason why I’m so excited to get back home.🏡 My bff 👯👯 since 1979 and yonder……. ❤️😇 These are whom I called “My Family” back home.

Edgar Wright-

If you go back to your home town or you’re reunited with school friends, its always slightly bittersweet because as much as there’s nice things in terms of seeing them again, the town has changed without you, and you’re no longer a part of it.

Saba – iCookiTravel

Banana- Saba, boiling it for my meal is healthy snack for diabetics. Since a half cup of fruit every dinner is allowable for diabetics, it is perfectly fine to regularly include the saba in one’s meal or diet. One must be noted that the ideal snack for diabetic is the boiled banana saba. Since banana is high in fiber, eating banana is heavy on the belly, it is one way of driving down one’s appetite so that one is prevented from overeating.

Stale Bread – iCookiTravel

What to do with these stale bread or leftover bread and bun?!?!?!

Throwing away food isn’t just a waste of money it is a downright shame. How many of the world’s people don’t have enough to eat?…Anyone here or out there any idea?

But even in the smallest space there’s a place for a planlet.


The city is green, gardens in public places is as hip as on roof terraces and small garden. Energy is also a big issue at this time. The sun shines for all. With the lengthening days, therefore, not only man and nature come back into gear. Passionate hobby gardeners comes to meet the technology. Flowers and tulips are everywhere. April-This month is full of events in nature. The first green venturing out, the birds build their nests and sing all day. It’s Spring!
More and more trees end their winter rest. As you could see picture above. In some years they have been doing this beginning of April, while in other time only in May. It depends on the weather, whether it is warm or cold at this time. After a series of warm days you can almost see the buds are open. Very delicate and light green leaves are coming out and the flowers unfold. This is how spring wakes me up and the different scent in the air, Which I love most, same as the weather. For me the most very exciting season of the year. I’m enjoying it when it comes … “SPRING” 🙂
