One of the easiest means to reconnect with one’s roots is by feeding the eyes and of course, the stomach. Thanks to the Philippine Embassy for organizing the three-day Filipino Art and Food Festival in celebration of the Independence day.
I am glad that I was able to take a peek of Cityscape Abu Dhabi before the first day ended. Being invited/ visiting the event for the third time now let me manage the degree of my amazement with the stands. While there are stands which are shiny as new, I noticed that some chose to be practical by modifying the previous year’s models. I’m happy about the cost-effective direction of the participants. You can refer to my 2010 and 2011 Cityscape photos for comparison. This post aims to highlight the interesting finds/ pieces.
I hosted a baby shower recently and attempted my first diaper cake. If you’re a regular to this blog, you probably know how much I value presents with personal touch, the priceless gift of time that comes with that. “Cooking” a diaper cake seemed intimidating at the beginning. But I thought that this must be fun and it really was. Thanks to the free tutorial videos (don’t fall for those who ask you to pay for it) that psyched me that it’s doable in less than an hour. While I am not an expert in preparing diaper cakes, I’d like to share my first “baking” experience of this kind that it may encourage you to whip one in the future.
