Coffee Happy This Winter

My love for coffee dates back to my college days when I can gulp down as much as seven cups in a day. But many years, a marriage, and two kids after, I mellowed and got contented with just a cup daily.





So as much as I want to drink this Nescafe Cappuccino brought by an officemate, I didn't. Although the clever packaging seemed to promise a great coffee experience, I didn't give in to the olfactory temptation that it brought when prepared by our teaboy.

Maybe, tomorrow. Or during those hurried breakfasts when I didn't get to enjoy a good, hot coffee at home.

Or maybe later...

Hello Beth! Like you, a cup of hot coffee in the morning is enough for me. Sometimes, when we ran out of a cold juice, I look for iced coffee. Enjoy na ko nun!

I wonder if that Nescafe Capuccino in a cup is already available here. Gonna try, if I see one.!

Be well and stay pretty! Take care!

Ate Beng, did you know that buying boxes of this and bringing to the Philippines crossed my mind? :)

Thanks for the never ending visit, Ate Beng!

It's the start of Gabby and Sunday's vacation! And I'm back to the things that I always take for granted: reading and blogging. I've always looked forward to posting here but life has been a whirlwind for the past months. Gabby graduated from primary school and will be in high school this June. Yes, you read it right. I now have a high school kid. How time flies! I got so sick after that and was rushed to the ER and was given antibacterial medicines intravenously. But now, I'm back and raring to blog again.

Don't think that I don't like my job when I tell you that I took a leave of absence just to accompany my daughter to her field trip. I do love my job. But my daughter is growing up fast and I don't want to miss the chances of being with her on times she asks me to.

Ever read or heard about the famous deathbed regret quote? It says, “No man ever said on his deathbed, ‘I wish I had spent more time in the office.'” That thought reminds me to always have time for my family, no matter how busy I am at work. So on times I need to choose between being a mom and an office employee, I always choose the former. And I haven't regretted that choice since I started making it.

Let me be honest here. One of the reasons I went to that field trip was to check out places that aren't included in my must-go-to list here in Riyadh. I am so sure museums and exhibition centers are way below your list too, if they're there at all.

A Day in Baher Villas, Al Khobar

The school opened last June and the kids are now busy studying, doing homework and projects. I'm happy that I wouldn't have to think of things for my kids to do just like what I've said here. My kids love to go to beaches on their vacations from school. And because we didn't go to the Philippines this year, Fred and I thought of bringing them to a beach resort here to bust their boredom and change their environment even for just a day or two.
