School lunchbox week 3 and an Easy Puff recipe

Some of our lunchbox food this week is just a repeat if what V had two weeks back. He just insisted on not bringing his heavy thermal Sahara lunchbox. Since my V requests almost the same kind of lunch food I will try and feature something new every week. I was getting bored preparing the usual deli meat sandwich every morning, as I was staring at our fruit bowl full of red and green apples (Vs favorite fruit) a sudden craving for McDo’s apple pie happened.

Philippines is Miss World 2013

Congratulations Megan Young! My bestfriend Jory was in Bali to cover the pageant for OPMB Worldwide. He witnessed the crowning of the first Miss World 2013 from the Philippines! He finally got his dream of witnessing a pageant history our country crowned! Ever since he started covering pageants as a photographer our girls have been runner-ups and now we have a crown.

School Lunchbox Week 2

Second week of school was a bit difficult. V starts and ends his school day complaining/asking why he has to spend a really long time in school, they all do really a lot of work, and that he misses his old school. I keep telling myself it’s just an adjustment period and that we made the right decision. This school week we welcome a new lunch box – GoodByn Bynto. You can see from the photos below that it has 3 compartments, I can fit everything in 1 box!   Deli Meat Cheese Sandwich, Yakult & Milk, and Strawberry Grapes mixed fruit. (I was not able to close the lid after taking this photo so I took the milk out and placed it inside his bag) feedback: Bynto came back with half of the sandwich and a few pieces of fruits.   V liked his new lunchbox because it is easy to carry and doesn’t take lot of space in the table. Rice, 15 Chicken Nuggets, and Apple Oranges feedback: Tiger box came back home with the …

School Lunchbox Week 1

Yes, I know we are on the 3rd week of school but it’s never too late to share V’s school lunchbox. Parents were reminded during the school orientation to pack healthy lunch for kids to bring since unhealthy sweets can make young ones be hyper active. V’s school start very early, assembly time is at 7:20 am and 8th period ends at 1:40 pm. I initially thought that Grade 1 will have two breaks (1 for snack and 1 for lunch) but they only have one at 10:25 am till 11:00 am, when the teacher told us about this all the parents reacted with one question “Won’t the kids get hungry?” to which the teacher replied with “That’s why you should make sure they eat a healthy heavy breakfast.” My week 1 lunchbox ideas for V was to send him a filling snack/lunch to school and preferably something that is warm. During our vacation I bought a Sahara Tiger Thermal Lunchbox this keeps food warm for up to 8 hrs (C did prove this to …

1st week of Junior 1

*sigh* My V all smiles inside his classroom for Junior 1. I asked him if he’ll stop kissing Mama in front of his friends because his in grade 1, V replied with a hug and wet kiss telling me I will never stop kissing you Mama. ( I will come back and show him this post when his a teen and refuse to give me a kiss!) We have survived 1st week of school and I admit I was the one nervous that I won’t wake up early enough (bus pickup at 6:13 am) and that I won’t pack enough food for him. I’ve been crazy searching the stores for the perfect lunchbox since V complained that the Sahara Tiger lunchbox is too heavy but hey it keeps his food warm even after 6 hrs! Vs week 1 school lunchbox feedback is that I send him way too much food. Too much? He comes home complaining he’s soo hungry! He explained that he doesn’t want to go potty #2 at school that’s why he doesn’t …
