Thoughts on Sinepanghalina’s Award-Winning Short Films – Ma?, Dungaw and Bisperas

Though only 20.31% of my blog posts are related to film reviews, I 100% love films. It doesn’t matter if it’s an independent film or mainstream. As long as my interest is piqued, I’ll watch it like these three short films I am about to share.

BAM! It’s Banana, Avocado & Mango Graham Float

A few weeks ago, we bought some avocados from The Grocer PH. We used the fruits to make my Abuelita’s Avocado Banana Dessert. If you haven’t seen it and want to make it, I hyperlinked the blog post and video for you.

Now I would like to share with you that the Grocer PH is very kind to send over some avocados for us as well as another batch of Ojet’s Lecheng Maja. (Gracias, Direk Ojet.) We honestly can’t get over Direk Ojet’s Lecheng Maja.

Again, I’m not cursing you. It’s really called Lecheng Maja because it has THREE layers of delicious – cream cheese, maja blanca and leche flan! *If you want to try it, you can order through Facebook or contact them at 02 8372 4145 or 0956 4903727. Read More
