112917 We were treated to lunch by my maternal aunt and family who were also at mass earlier. The resto of choice was the Suite Room where we enjoyed having their salmon and green tea ice cream among other things. The place was packed even at 130pm that we had to occupy 2 separate tables. ☺️ So much for bonding… It’s been a while since we last ate here and it looked the same as before, though older and in urgent need of a renovation IMHO. Other than that, food was good and I will probably go back for the green tea ice cream. http://ift.tt/2Aj6otS via Tumblr http://ift.tt/2zPcSE4

112917 When Ma texted me this morning that they were hearing mass at Oakridge at 1215pm, I decided to join them. We could have lunch together afterwards, I thought. It’s always a good thing spending time with them and doing things together like hearing mass or sharing a meal. So here’s a photo we snapped before mass started. http://ift.tt/2AGbpjb via Tumblr http://ift.tt/2AGTzN0

112717 This morning, our breakfast consisted of tomato soup, grilled cheese sandwich and water infused with lemon essential oil. We haven’t done this in weeks due to schedules. It was good to alternately exchange updates and watch streaming Ms. Universe. πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ˜† http://ift.tt/2BpnZR4 via Tumblr http://ift.tt/2i9ch8A

112517 Pa said I should make sure the name Eduardo (his namesake) was very clear in the background. 🀣 Pa and Ma joined us in getting our Jake from school today. He was there with his classmates to prepare and set up of booths and decors for tomorrow’s Christmas fair. http://ift.tt/2n21Vcj via Tumblr http://ift.tt/2A9uG9F

111917 Sunday dinner… This day also marked the 2nd time our nephew received Holy Communion. Because he studies at Abbas Montessori where they do not prepare Catholics for this 2nd sacrament of initiation after Baptism, he had to attend a special Catechism class outside of school on his own schedule for several consecutive Sundays. His actual 1st Communion was last Wednesday during the 1215pm mass at St. Therese Church. http://ift.tt/2AVyytZ via Tumblr http://ift.tt/2ivDdw4

111817 Not yet 100%… After last week’s mini reunion with high school friends who flew in from Manila, I caught the sniffles. Wednesday was runny nose, Thursday was throbbing headache and Friday was mild sore throat. Hydration and my essential oils protocols were on overdrive to kick the virus asap. Today was a lot better, thank goodness. I was well enough to enjoy the weekend. Though it may not show, the added bonus to all these was the unexpected 2 kg weight loss. πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌ . .

110917 The endless chatter with these high school friends from Zobel, stretched lunch up to 3pm. Trust Tina to be the wisecracker in the group who kept Isabel and I laughing in stitches. The banter and exchange of adult… and midlife stories back and forth felt like high school chika sessions all over again. πŸ˜‚ I love the age we are in. ♥️ http://ift.tt/2hhwhBC via Tumblr http://ift.tt/2maRGBN

110817 This photo was taken during the Make and Take session we had at Vanille. It was conducted by a classmate and friend of mine from high school. . I’ve been an essential oil user since August of 2016. I bought a kit primarily to make my peri-menopause symptoms more manageable… because…50! I had frozen shoulder, heart flutters, hot flashes, anxiety and panic attacks, etc. To make the story short, now most of the symptoms are not as bothersome as before. Plus I also noticed my immune system has improved markedly. I guess the shift to this non-traditional and more natural approach helped. I couldn’t recall the last time I reached for fever, cold/cough or headache meds. Thank goodness! . Like kids with loot bags, we ended up bringing home chemical free foaming soap, linen spray, deodorizer and cleaner using essential oils. All DIY! I realized I could ditch store bought chemically laden products for the ones we made. It was actually easy to do. I’m looking forward to more sessions like this… PM me if you want an invite 😜 http://ift.tt/2yi0yaA via Tumblr http://ift.tt/2iEdh0H
