Recipe: Chop Suey with Chorizo Macao

When was the last time you had a proper home-cooked meal? There’s nothing wrong with dining out. It’s just that home-cooked meals are way better and heartwarming especially when you share it with your family. Last weekend, my family and I had a simple Sunday lunch at home. Since it wasn’t busy, I decided to cook lunch with the help of my abuelita (lola/ grandmother). Take note, my abuelita relies on her senses when cooking. She doesn’t like measuring or reading recipes. In short, she makes her own.

You Can Do It All with Pantene’s New Pro-V Core Activ Formula

I hated my thin, wavy, and difficult to understand hair. I can’t wear it down nor let it grow past my shoulders. I can’t even braid it because it becomes more unmanageable.

Feel the Power of Olay

Since the task can only be done after-hours, I haven’t had enough sleep. And we all know what that plus stress can do to our body. Then one day, I received a text message and an email. Tap here. Click here. Click there. Submit. A few days after, I received a package containing a cute white pouch from Viviamo Inc (Belle de Jour Planner) and the first thing I read was: “You’re at Your Best Beautiful When You Live Life to the Fullest”.
