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.

How I Make Ice Cold Coffee

Since you clicked this, I am assuming you love coffee, too! Doesn’t the smell of freshly-brewed coffee in the morning just wake your soul? I know this sounds dramatic for others who aren’t coffee drinkers but this is how I feel. A hot cup of coffee just wakes me up and helps me get to work. You see, my shift always starts at 6AM. Of course, I need to wake an hour and a half earlier to prepare and eat breakfast. So coffee really does wake my soul.

Quick Drink: Smart C+ Lemon Yakult

Netflix’s To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before (2018) is honestly a good teen rom-com that is why I am excited for the sequel which will be released on February 12. In case you’re curious, I wrote a review and here is an excerpt: I was a teenager once (and so were you!). Like any teen, I’ve seen and enjoyed various teen rom-com. After watching Netflix’s “To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before”, I have to admit that this is the first time I truly believed in a love story. Sure, the story is simple. I’ll give you that. But TATBILB is so genuine and pure that you accept everything about it. Not only that but also Lara Jean is a very relatable character. It wasn’t difficult to understand and like Lara Jean because deep inside there is a Lara Jean in all of us.

Easy Tuna & Mushroom Carbonara

If you check my previous recipe posts here on this blog, I always mention how traditional my Abuelita is. She doesn’t follow recipes and makes everything from scratch. But for someone who doesn’t cook, that is so time consuming and it’s really not me. I just can’t. I’m sorry. But I promised Abuelita I would cook Carbonara for Noche Buena ( Christmas Eve dinner). Good thing, there were already some ingredients at home plus some tuna and a can of Jolly Whole Mushroom. So all I did was buy three packs of Clara Olé Carbonara making this Tuna & Mushroom Carbonara recipe so easy.
