I left off at July the last time I blogged in retrospect. I think I owe it to my blog to update it once in a while, so here’s looking back to August, September and October in photo collages. I’m starting to love this once-in-a-couple-of-months bulk blogging, though. Haha.
August: dear youngest sister’s 18th birthday dinner at Sunburst
September: after-exam dinner with classmates at Iliganon (photos from Joyce)
September: Dee and Greggy’s wedding at St. Ignatius de Loyola Chapel, Patag and reception N Hotel (photos from Coi and Dee)
October: tapok with stat classmates (photos from Diane)
Halo-halo get-togethers: Coffee at Aruma with Sam, Fiah and Dee | Sundaes at Ice Castle with Fiah | Sun-date at Thai Me Up | Bo’s Coffee with B and A | Pizzarella with B and A | Aruma with Ate Karl and Ate Sweeky | Late lunch at Vienna Kaffeehaus with B, M and A
As for November, it was off to a fun start with a weekend getaway with the barkada to Jasaan.

Here’s to hoping the rest of November will be just as fun. 🙂
August 29 — Family friends started arriving for the MSU 50th Foundation Day celebration on September 1. That evening we convoyed with family friends to MSU Naawan for a night of grilled seafood yummies with their sugba festival.
While waiting for the fam friends to arrive… outfit shot!
This was the “something sweet” I was supposed to make last Sunday but I traded my kitchen apron for a pretty dress to celebrate Easter and birthdays with family friends. Again, this sweet treat was dear Nanay’s idea. Or craving. Either way, I’m always up for Sunday kitchen challenges. 🙂
I have all the ingredients for something sweet I’m excited to make. But we just got back from grocery shopping and the family has a special double birthday dinner party to celebrate with family friends later, so I’m out of time for my sweet treat.
Hopefully, I can do some baking *clue* within the week. *fingers crossed*
It’s Sunday once again and as with the previous Sundays, it’s my cooking day again. I think I’d like to make this a regular thing so here’s to hoping I can commit myself to learning a new recipe every week. This Sunday’s cooking is more special than the past Sundays because (1) siopao is one of my biggest favorites and (2) I got some help from my dear Nanay. Okay, it was her idea that we make siopao today because we’re always craving for siopao. I thought it would be tough to make but when you have a Hotel and Restaurant Management teacher for a mother who handles cooking subjects to guide you, things don’t seem so tough anymore.
So this mother-daughter kitchen collaboration was actually a one-on-one cooking class and fun bonding moment rolled into one yummy siopao recipe.
It’s another cooking Sunday for me and yes, its another Jenni Epperson recipe. What can I say? This woman’s an inspiration not only in fashion and style but also in the kitchen. This time, I whipped up my version of Jenni’s Century Corned Tuna Sliders from her Meatless Fridays recipe series.
