QT Movie Date: Because February spells L.O.V.E

Lately, It's been a challenge for A and I to go out, just the two of us basically because, we do not have someone to look after our toddler.

So whenever we got that rare chance, we make sure, we will spent our day out to the max. hahaha
Last Feb. 1, we attended our church's event entitled NEXT in the morning until 1PM.
It was so fun and inspiring especially to upcoming leaders like me. (Yey!)

Got this lovely tokens.
Felt so much privilege to be given a copy of Pastor Steve Murell since this book is only available in USA.
He is such a generous man. Thanks a lot Ptr. Steve!!!

Lovely tokens from Victory Fort. Photo grabbed from a dear friend, Minoll

After the event, we immediately went to the nearest mall since we know for a fact that going somewhere else will just stuck us in traffic and will be a waste of time. :-)



Had a quick lunch at NYFD and straight to the cinema.

Devotion 2014_028 : Why compromise NOT?

READING: Mark 15: 6-15; Pilate Hands Jesus Over to be Crucified

MY REMA:
Mark 15:15 (NIV) - Wanting to satisfy the crowd, Pilate released Barabas to them. He had Jesus flogged, and handed him over to be crucified.

MY REFLECTION:

Allow me to highlight the phrase:  Wanting to satisfy the crowd

How many time have I entered into compromise? Honestly, I couldn't count nor remember anymore. Many times or oftentimes, it was something I did that leads me to a more difficult situation or sometimes, I find it hard to get out from.

I once heard from a Pastor, Dr. Greg Mitchell during Fearless Parenting Seminar we've attended, and he said "Today's solution is tomorrow's problem."

Why?

New Chapter

This is my attempt to come back to blogging my thoughts out. (Good luck to me..hahaha). To my readers, allow me to update you....(another hahaha...as if my readers...pagpasensyahan nyo na ako...feelingera din pag may time..hehehe)

Ok, remember this post? A and I have decided to be more serious about our business venture in baking. It has been 2 months now that I am officially out of the corporate world. Yes, you read it right. I resigned from my work in Fujitsu and is now a trying-struggling-but-happy-and-contented SAHM/SAHM (Stay At Home Mom/Wife). I enjoyed each day that I do not need to dread Mondays and hate Fridays...(I guess, you all know what I mean by this.)

I am happy and proud to share with you guys that I feel, actually we are really blessed by God and giving us another source of income out of baking. HHmmmm, we can not officially call ourselves entrepreneurs yet since we are not done with all the legal papers that need to be in placed for our business to be registered.
For now, we are doing purely home baking.

God has graced us with constant orders and regular buyers of our baked products. (cookies, cupcakes, wheat bread, etc...I will share what we bake & sell in another post ok lang?)

I will admit that my regular monthly income is still not at par from what we are getting out of baking...but time well spent with my son and A is immeasurable and incomparable...These are the things that money can not buy. (I am one blessed woman! ^__^)

For the past 2 months, I thought I would have ample time to spend for myself...but I was completely wrong. I am still out almost everyday...one busy mom-wife...yes! I was even astounded to realize that being a SAHM/SAHW really takes more of your Me-Time...I find it hard to go on-line, check FB and going back to blogging has been a brawl with myself. hahaha.

But before I write senseless blah blahs...(I hope I am not wasting your time reading this)...allow me to share the name of our business.

I am well pleased to introduce:


It was my brother who gave the name to our business. Why 3yalicious?

Uhm....Hello?

Dear blog,

Hello??!! Still remember me? I hope yes. My deepest apologies for the long hiatus that has been.
Such my bad to completely neglect you when in fact you are one medium I normally go to when I need to share my thoughts, my feelings, my achievements, my dream and even my futile rants.

I admit I am incompetent in managing my time and just putting things in order in terms of prioritization.
I thought I can have ample time writing but I'm wrong.

Been trying to visit and read links little by little like tonight. hahaha. (the mister is busy watching TV and the toddler playing with his puzzles).

I do hope I can come back and write more often.

I have so much in mind on what to share, what to write.
Bottom line, I miss writing...I miss us.

Good night for now. :-)

Baking is Money Making

Yes, you heard it right. I'm starting to make money out of my newest hobby...and that is baking. *big grin*
If you will notice too, my sidebar has more links and blog list about baking. Hehe. Actually my sweet tooth pave way to my interest in baking. It all started with a wishful thinking. When someone gifted us an oven toaster and turbo broiler, I fancy how to bake using these electric appliances. I even looked for possible recipes to bake using an oven toaster and turbo broiler. However, it seems too tiresome than buying an out of the shelf slice of cake from my favorite bakeshops. 

But I guess the saying "When there's a will, there's a way" or sa tagalog, "Kapag gusto, maraming paraan..." is really true. I was able to persuade the Mister to buy a gas range with  oven when we were looking for a new 2-burner stove just to save on LPG. Hahaha. That's what you call, creating the interest and the need of a buyer. O di ba?, nagamit ko pagiging ahente ko sa asawa ko. :P
The story behind was told on this post, where it all began.

I started baking ready made batter from the grocery. Then started reading blogs and looking for online recipes of cupcakes, cakes, bread and cookies!!! My eyes get big and almost drool on beautiful plating and recipes I get to see online. Some of my favorites sites/links are already in my sidebar.

Last year, I was able to sample and gifted dozens and dozens of cupcakes. My block buster flavors are chocolate and carrot cupcakes! They were a winner!!! And last Christmas was indeed crazy. I gave cupcakes as Christmas gifts to friends. Cupcakes as our share for parties (pot luck) and cupcakes almost in every celebration we attended.

Majority of my creations were posted in Instagram and FB. Shame on me, I failed to write about it here due to my limitations when it comes to time management. Blame it on making priorities. Mommyhood comes first than blogging. :P


Devils Cake with Chocolate Ganache. The cake is a ready made batter mix  but I made the ganache.


The Ultra Moist Chocolate Cake. Recipe is from Aikko of Bake Happy. Such a generous lady to share recipes.

First attempt to bake a cake. This was for Jared when he turned 9 months.

Chocolate and Vanilla Cupcakes for Mama's 58th Birthday


Rainbow cupcakes. Aren't they pretty? 

Practicing how to write on red velvet cupcakes. :-)

Chocolate Cake for my Nephew's 3rd Birthday. The frosting was not  perfect. hehe

Christmas giveaways
Banana Bread with Chocolate chips

My latest creation...chewy chocolate chip cookies.. Winner!!!


My first sale were 4 dozens of cupcakes (2 dozen chocolate and 2 dozen carrot) for a simple debut of my friend's sister. I was told that they were a big hit to the guests and my friend, (the hostess) forgot to save one for herself. hehehe. 

Anyways, I'm so darn excited to be an official entrepreneur and who know's, I, este, we might own our Bakeshop. We have tons of ideas in mind but still on the blueprint.

For now, I'm glad I have a tall order of 9 dozen of chocolate chip cookies!!! God is so good. 
My dough is already done waiting for it's 24 hour countdown before I can bake them. Ohh, I'm so excited.

Baking is one of the reasons I'm getting a bit healthier than before. :P
