Luscious Caramel Cake for Josh' Birthday




My little boy turns 10 today and we had some bonding moments before his Dad and siblings came home.  We went shopping for his shirts and toys first before we went to arcade to round off several games he frequents every time we want to relax there.  It was still early and we enjoyed having few companions in the arcade playing our favorite bowling and baseball without long wait.  We just ate snacks because DH texted me that they're home already.  

I told Josh to pick and choose his birthday cake and when I pointed him RR chocolate cakes he told me that he preferred G's Luscious Caramel Cake because he suddenly crave for other flavors besides choco.  He actually love caramel flavors in ice cream and candies and when he saw this cake he smilingly told me that he wanted it for his cake.  I always ask them what they want for their birthdays because my kids really love cakes and they always want to have a taste of every new flavor being advertised on TV.  Well they just choose Red Ribbon or Goldilocks when I don't have orders from online cake stores.

Well this one is really yummy if you're fond of caramel flavors because this one is such a sweetie.  Luscious caramel cake is soft mocha and vanilla cakes filled with caramel and vanilla butter filling the covered with marbled caramel icing and drizzled with yummy caramel sauce. I'm happy that Goldilocks is always coming up with variety of new flavors to satisfy various preferred taste of their customers.  Another good thing is the price, it's so affordable.  This one costs PhP390 only.

Kitchen Rearrangement

I had our kitchen repaired and the sink reconstructed last year with the help of my brother-in-law who supervised and manned the works. I had it designed by myself including the positioning of kitchen appliances and small machines into the kitchen area. At the farthest corner I placed the washer and drier and set up everything so I will not carry anything when I want to wash clothes. I’m not allowed to carry loads because I’ve undergone CS operation from my 3 deliveries so everything must be properly placed to ensure I will follow. 

Well after several months one outlet suddenly lost its place and because I was worried I began to look for electrically conductive glue to put it in order immediately. I remember my first work in a semiconductor company where I used a lot of that kind of glue on assembling headers of transformer. I can say that it’s really good and very beneficial as well.

Giving Our Best Care to Our Seniors


We’ll all grow old and when that time comes we’re all hoping that we’ll be happy growing old and enjoying our golden years with our loved ones. Not everyone will be able to enjoy it but some are fortunate enough to be gifted with children who are kind to take care of them lovingly. Well our seniors should be the most important members of our family as they spent their time and effort in taking care of our needs physically, emotionally and financially, thus they should be given preferential love and attention when they reached their golden years. 

I remember my father when he’s still living and got bedridden. He becomes almost a baby to us making him our first priority in everything that we do. We cared for him, prepared blended dishes especially for him and did everything to make him feel good when he’s not feeling well. When he can’t make it to stand to go to the bathroom we used reusable adult diapers so he will not be rushing and forced to stand and walk just to do his usual comfort necessities.

It’s good that these washable diapers were created and put to market because it made a way for easy disposal without making it too uncomfortable and awkward for our dear seniors. For the family who is taking care of the seniors it’s not only convenient but affordable as well because disposable diapers in the past were more expensive than the washable ones. It comes with an absorbent liner that slides into the sewn-in moisture pouch. 

For the seniors it’s more comfortable because they feel relief when using it plus it looks and feels like regular underwear. This way they will not feel that they’re unable to do things their way because with washable diapers they can be their normal self again.
