Yay for the holiday! This is one of those rare occasions that I get to sleep longer and wake up to prepare quality breakfast. Thankfully, French Toasts are really fuss free alternatives to pancakes, since I was craving for one. I just wish I had fresh fruits on hand! The site where I got this recipe from looked enticing with all the berries on the side of her plate. Delish! But oh well, this will do for now!
I made my dad’s blog site work! I have been toiling all morning to fix his new domain and it took me quite awhile to figure things out (more like four hours). Since I have more time in my hands the past few days, I have been experimenting and teaching myself how to do new things. One of my latest contributions to my accomplishment collection is the ability to put up a site via wordpress.org (aka ramosontheroad.com). Recently, I was able to replace a bulb in our lighting fixture that went kaput! (yay haha small sources of joy). And, last but not the least, one of my biggest proud moments is being able to bake a cake (a rather small one haha)!
I eternally suck at baking, mainly because I really do not have patience in following instructions to a tee. But, I guess (and I hope) that will all change starting today when I created my first mug cake! SO THAT IS CAUSE FOR A CELEBRATION REASON NUMBER TWO.
Thank you to bestdessertrecipes.com for this recipe! It really was a dessert extraordinaire in a cup! Super perfect for a rainy weather such as today. 🙂 I remember shrieking to my heart’s content when I took out my mug from the microwave! wow, following procedure really does wonders, no? Who knew this cake would come out firm and moist at the same time! Yay!
And, some snippets from the weekend! since I have not been posting.
We went to a Toy Con! and it DID NOT DISAPPOINT!! HURRAY!
My dad posing with some zombies at the convention.
Some of the toys on display!
Andre, Lloyd (Andre’s best friend) and I taking a night cap in Starbucks last Saturday, after attending one of their friend’s celebratory dinner for passing the bar exam.
Still from Starbucks. That was interesting night though, the rains poured as we exchanged the most random of conversations.
Our drinks! I took a photo for the baristas rarely get my name right.
My glasses haha I have no idea why I took a photo of that, perhaps I was feeling artsy (cringe).
Hihi hello from this sweet lady (aka mom of bar passer and host of dinner) whom I met at the party. She happens to be my mom’s batchmate from high school. I was truly floored at her amusement when she saw me, it may have been a blast from the past for her…and I as well. IT’S A SMALL WORLD AFTER ALL!
Sunday driving with my husband! we were on our way to church.
Honorary selfie with Andre. We looked like a carrot that day! I was wearing a green cardigan and he was doning his orange hypebeast jacket.

Honorary selfie 3 (boy, we are on a roll here!)
Hello from the vegetable basket! my dad wore violet that day and I referred to him as the eggplant of the group.
Sorry for the lomo effect of the photos! I just discovered a new app and went crazy! 🤪 click, click, click.
