Big Appetites Only: Surfin’ Ribs

In the 3 years that I’ve been regularly visiting my team in Cebu, almost always we have a go-to, famous ribs place at the Ayala Terraces for our ribs craving. So whenever I will have family or friends visiting with me, that’s where I would bring them.Only today did I experience another ribs place that might just top the other one. On the outskirts of Ayala, at Escario St. is Surfin’ Ribs. A humble, little restaurant that offers a huge slab of ribs for only Php169. A whopping 169 pesos! (about $4)

The Potty Adventure: Dry All Night

When Yui was around 2 1/2 years old, our adventure with potty training began. As I mentioned in a previous post, it was a pretty easy transition for us when we knew that she was ready for it. As we go along the journey, she really improved from learning how to say when she wants to go to being able to go on long travels without a nappy.

It was around March last year when she started going on long trips to Lingayen, Pangasinan (almost a 5 hour ride) without a nappy. Apart from her own development, the family also learned from the whole experience. We learned to adjust to her (bladder) needs, and anticipated the times when she needed to go. We can’t leave the house without going to the restroom first so that she can empty her bladder before a trip. We also had to have stop overs since kids have smaller capacity especially when they have drinks during the trip. All these efforts were rewarded with successful travels and happy baby and parents 🙂

Baby Shower: Dr. Seuss Theme

One of my close friends at work, who is a soon-to-be-dad, planned a baby shower for his wife. Since my friends and I love crafts and planning events, we volunteered to help with his preps. I got more excited when I learned that he is having a Dr. Seuss theme for the baby shower.  Yui loves her Dr. Seuss books so I know the characters but although my friend is not familiar with Dr. Seuss, it didn’t stop her creative juices at all.

We had so much fun planning for the decorations which were assigned to us. We searched the net for ideas for the table centerpieces, banners and other decors. Since we only have about 2 weeks to prepare and had to squeeze the planning and execution in between work, we opted for easy to make but fun, cute and functional decorations. I even get to share our collection of Dr. Seuss books to display at the event.
