Peace to Paris

Trivial problems in our own lives don’t compare to world issues such as this traumatic terrorist act.

Therefore, tuning into Ryan Higa‘s First World Problems puts our own woes into a fresh perspective:

Original (2012) — *NEW* iPhone 5 

More Recent (2014) — NON-iPhone 5 compatible

Speaking of terrorist acts, we also live in a time when natural disasters draw our attention to devastating death tolls from either, leaving us with uncertain times.

San Andreas shows us the measures that we may take by human nature to save our ♥loved♥ ones and survive.

Another Action-Packed Adventurous San Andreas Trailer

This was an excellent flick pick for Movie Night at home with the fam ~ especially since it showcased family!

I certainly needed some down time (even bypassing party and Fight Night invites) after my faculty defense!

With the HOLYdays around the corner plus after a productive day of grading speeches and practicing my own presentation

Happy 🎆Belated🎇 🎊Birthday🎊 to Mami Aya

My Nanay has always cooked unbroken noodles for 🎈birthdays🎁 to signify long life. Usually, these celebratory main courses are spaghetti🍝 or Pancit🍜 (Filipino dish).

Some of us loyal children out there tend to be biased to our parents’ cooking if we grew up mostly exposed to their food. I’m definitely no different; as a matter of fact, I was so spoiled to the point that I as a preschooler once sobbed at my parents’ friends’ 🏠house🏡 when they dropped me off there for date night, and I was stuck with foreign spaghetti.

While many kids cooked for their moms on 💐Mother’s Day, my Mami Aya insisted on cooking her own special meal. Papa Jun and I didn’t mind. Not only have her masterpieces been delicious, but also nutritious!

 
I never can pass up what I call Nanay’s Bomb Diggety Spaghetti (she used to put hotdogs to keep up with Pinoy tradition ~ she even made my sis’ separately because she only liked the hotdogs)

Here’s a new side dish that she whipped up: Baked Parmesan Zucchini Sticks

I now prefer these over the fried green tomatoes🍅 or fried pickles ~ or any other fried greens, for that matter

Who needs mozzarella sticks with these bad boys?  The Birthday Girl also cooked her special meal!   Pancit Canton goes well with Lumpia (eggrolls)!    And let’s not forget the 🎂cake🍰 ~ bring on Tres 🍶Leches🍼 con 🍉frutas: fresas🍓 y 🍍piñas!

Friendly reminder: Pray🙏 just to make it today!

Let’s do double leg raises!

These will work out not just our legs and lower back, but also our hip flexors as we twist …

We’ll get creative by making shapes.

As we’re laying down, we’ll do the following sequence of 10 per set:

  • Legs together
  • Spiral/tornado up then down
  • Scissor legs ~ spread out then bring back together
  • Draw ♥hearts♥ for Belated ♥Valentine’s♥ Day
  • Draw four-leaf ♣clovers♣ for Early ♣St. Patrick’s♣ Day

Since today’s snow day reminds me of the holidays, how about I show off the dogs who I’ve professionally photographed for season’s greetings?

First, I was fortunate to have two well-behaved French poodles of my doctor friend ~ with Kool-aid smiles!

This DISPO still can’t seem to let CHRISTmas go.

Since Friday wraps up my weekend (before I return to work on Saturday), I prefer to cozy up at home with A&A at the end of the day …
