Sunday Lunch at Gerry's Restaurant and Bar



We're in Baguio now and enjoying the cool summer breeze the place offers. We first visited Mine's View Park and soaked in the beauty of clouds and mountains.



There was a family debate as to where we will eat. The hubby and the first-born won because my male version and I had opposing choices.

I wanted pasta and pizza, the male version wanted chicken. So, the first-born and the hubby got us into a carnivorous indulgence.


Gerry's it was!

The boys had a great time! As always though I did not have the privelege of taking photos of my camera shy men, sigh.

Until next foodie time with the fambam!


Why You Should Make Comfort a Priority in Your Home

Far too many people place more importance on style than on comfort nowadays. In my opinion though, that shouldn’t be the case. Style without comfort is like a sandwich without a filling or a car without a steering wheel! It’s just not right. I say it’s time we made comfort fashionable again!

Here are a few reasons why you should make comfort your new priority around the home, so get reading.

Wicked Ideas For Running a Successful Restaurant

Running a restaurant is often thought of as a glamorous experience. Television and the movies have certainly heightened the appeal for a lot of people. But, for every restaurant that succeed there are many that fail in it’s place. Running a restaurant is much harder work than a lot of people realise. In fact, it’s a lot more difficult than running, say, a pub. Once you involve food in the process things become much more complicated.

You need to know about the processes involved in the running of a successful restaurant. A lot of these will be similar templates for most business models. But you’ll need to make sure your focus is on the restaurant, and the food side of the business. Here are some awesome ideas for how you can run a successful restaurant.

Life As It Is: Sunset Watch and Musings

For most days of the week I am loaded with problems. Don't worry, the problems aren't personal but work-related. Hmmm on second thought they are heavy nonetheless yet not personal I have to stress and that makes the huge difference.

So, sigh here I am on a Friday afternoon ready to blurt out TGIF!!!!!!!!!

I am looking forward to the weekend when I can spend time with my family. I will absolutely laugh, eat and sleep to my heart's content.

Why? Why not? All work and no play makes Kulasa a dull, a very dull girl.

Yesterday was awesome! I was able to finally watch the sunset again!

beautiful, beloved sunset taken with my smartphone

listening to the waves calmed my spirit...I could keep playing this...over and over

someone in the family enjoyed the sunset just as much as I did- my nephew Zach!

and yep there were lovers along the shore watching the end of the day

I still claim to be busy as busy can be. I am adjusting day by day to this new work designation of mine and everyday is another challenge but with daily prayers....I think I can call this MY CALLING....SOON....

Five Things You Need In Your Life This Spring


I don’t know about you but I’ve started to notice a little bit of sun creeping through the clouds. The days are getting longer and the air is a little warmer. That all means one thing; spring is around the corner! We can start getting out into the garden and visiting the parks. We can take walks down the river and shed the coats and jumpers. I love this time of year. Everyone is a little bit happier and more optimistic.

Simple Yet Effective Ways to Get Rid of Silverfish

Silverfish are not the most pleasant of creatures in the home. In fact, they can make you feel a little squeamish when you see them. When you spot and identify silverfish in your home, the first thing to do is to remain calm. Don’t panic, they will not hurt you! Silverfish are relatively harmless. But they are still not nice to have in your property. Many people get that itchy feeling when they see them. Let’s face it; we all want to have a pristine, well-presented home. And silverfish, well, they are not the embodiment of this!

Silverfish in the Home: Things to Be Aware Of

Let’s make this clear, silverfish will not and will never be harmful to humans. So, if you see one, don’t panic too much. The nature of silverfish means that they can cause damage in your home. They thrive in moist areas, and they feed off carpets and wood. As such, they can leave a little trail of destruction behind them when it comes to them being prevalent in your home. As such, it is important that you get rid of them if you don’t want them to cause damage.

Date With The Hunks: Pizza Hut Galore and Cinderella Movie-Watching


I'm the only girl in the family so they are hunks LOL. It was a day for the teenagers so the choice was theirs. The hubby wanted to eat his so called real foods but we all said No-No because it's the kiddo's day! 

So off to Pizza Hut we went.
We had a set-meal which composed of...

mushroom soup



chicken and fried rice

Hawaiian pizza

Spaghetti platter


I find their fried chicken a bit of salty and got the same opinion from the hunks. Their pizza is the best for me though because of a certain herb-like taste and the pasta that's not too thin and cooked just enough. I guess it's the cheese that makes it perfect!

And yep it was a perfect date with the hunks. We got a family secret during this date! No am not telling you LOL.

We then went to the mall to catch the movie CINDERELLA. I don't have time to write a review about it so am giving my verdict in this post. Cinderalla starring Lily. James is a MUST-WATCH.

Not just because am a sucker for fairy tales but because it was very beautifully portrayed. Everyone in the audience knows the story but still everyone was mesmerized! 

HAVE COURAGE AND BE BRAVE!
~the important lesson that I learned~

As for the hunks, am sure they were enchanted by Cinderella!

UNTIL OUR NEXT FAMILY ADVENTURE!
