All Aboard

We've been eyeing to try this 45mins cruise along the Rhein river in Düsseldorf for quite sometime now but we were waiting for the right timing and since my ex-officemate from Manila visited us last weekend we thought that that was the right time!!!

The boat
Leaving the port
Those were sheeps along the riverside

twisted buidings

typical German houses
to beat the cold weather ......for me

for my friend and hubby

on board!

Even if the weather did not cooperate with us we still had fun!!!!!

It is a Filipino sweet bread that I'm missing (not to mention craving as well!) now. Good thing a good Filipino chef based in the US featured it on his food blog.  Click here for the video and the full recipe.

Now, I'm hungry again!

Our Comfort Food


This is what I prepare whenever there's no more fresh meat in the ref. Its very easy and complete (i guess), there's mashed potatoes, corn, green peas and carrots. I just used worcestershire sauce to taste. And Viola, instant dinner!!!!

Gold Wash

I think this is the most enjoyable activity at Centro park.....for kids. They will get dirty and wet and after all the "hardwork and patience" a gold is waiting at the end.

Kids are serious in finding gold-like stones or pebbles.

The "gold-stones" are process on the left machine

hmm...how i wish they were real diamonds :-p

In less than a minute, the gold coin is ready!!!

Kids' reaction upon seeing the gold coin is priceless!!!

Birthday = family day

Things have really changed since Louise came into our lives. ....even on how we celebrate our birthdays.

But i actually like the change....stress-free, laid back,  just enjoying the moment.

No birthday-off if you're a mommy
