Recipe: Pastillas de leche

This powdered milk was originally bought for trying out the "puto de leche" recipe sana, but since I crave for creamy bite sized dessert these milk candies satisfies my craving right away!

Last time I used 'Bear Brand' powdered milk and I personally prefer it for a more tasty cow's milk. It's my second time for this no-cook recipe, I just mixed the following ingredients:

2 cups powdered milk
1/2 cup condensed milk

Scoop and mold in cylindrical small sized, roll each mold in granulated sugar, and wrap in yellow cellophane pastry wrapper.

That's it, a quick and easy steps which we enjoyed having for dessert.

Picture Frame Polymer Clay Charm

I considered giving a personalized gift for husband's niece for her 18th birthday. So I came up with this Picture Frame Clay Charm with her name for a more personal touch.

I never draw my desired outcome, I just go on with whatever  comes out at the moment. 

Debutant art work made by aspiring clayist =)

It was supposed to be a keychain charm but  the headpin covered-up to its hair and came out on a bigger size so it became a Frame charm instead.

My simple piece of art!
I am thinking of giving Clay Charms to relatives and friends this Christmas season, that means I better get started asap (hopefully!). So, I'll be wide awake when the kids were sleeping to create more charms, and this means a good time to practice and develop more skills like a pro.

Hello Kitty Party Theme at Jollibee

Five years ago, we celebrated my son's 1st birthday at Jollibee. Now, as my daughter turns 1, we also chose to celebrate at the same venue. We had Hello Kitty party theme for this cutey baby:

We arrived at exactly 4pm as scheduled, I was a bit disappointed to know that the crew were not yet ready to start for the alloted time. The celebrant's name wasn't even pinned at the tarp. I was expecting for the guests book that supposed to be signed at the entrance, so as to accurately count the number of visitors that joined us, but they informed me that there wasn't any (unlike 5 years ago!). Oh well, another disappointment that  simply can be ignored.

But, I almost loose my cool when a crew informed me that the Hello Kitty favors wasn't delivered right on time that is why we can only have 5 Hello Kitty loot bags, and the rest will be Jollitown theme for the girls.

Oookay... I just tried to understand that this is another effect of Jollibee's costly IT problem, their system migration from oracle to SAP, resulting to issues with inventory and supplies delivery. Thankful na lang atleast hindi kami na #ChikenSad that day.

Refund Process for PLDT's Last Home Stand ticket holders

Last night, husband went home disappointed when the 5-on-5 game between Gilas Pilipinas and Fibr All-Stars was, as advised by IGW to PLDT, not allowed by the NBA.

You know, the feeling when you are expecting something big to happen right in front of you, excited and patiently waited, thinking it's worthy to spend your time, effort and money but instead went all to waste?

K5 Learning Review Announcement

After almost a week of Class suspension due to typhoon 'Glenda', today's classes in all levels were suspended again due to expected bad weather from the southwest monsoon enhanced by typhoon 'Henry'. This means more play time for my 1st grader, who join the group of students who were delighted to hear the 'good news'. 

I know there's a lot he can learn while playing but at times like these, I want him to practice more on math and reading skills. That is why I joined  K5's personalized online learning program to  help build study habits and skills he needed to be able to work independently.

K5 Learning has an online reading and math program for kindergarten to grade 5 students. I've been given a 6 week free trial to test and write a review of their program. If you are a blogger, you may want to check out their open invitation to write an online learning review of their program.

After my trial period, I will be giving an honest review of this program to see how it works for this little guy:

Art Work Using Nendo Polymer Clay

After my hand-sewn dress project for my baby Girl, making a no-sew tutu skirt comes next. But before I can even get my hands on tulle that I bought from divi, this 'clay art thing' caught my attention and was eager to try hand crafting using polymer clay.

As a beginner in this craft, I was a little surprised on how time consuming it turned out to be. I watched youtube tutorials on making chibis and simple creations and it took them less than an hour to finish their art work, mine took 4 hours of trial and error. Well I guess that was pretty normal, I need to learn more designing techniques to came up with a much more smooth-finished clay works.
