THE GINGERBREAD HOUSE PH AT ALFONSO, CAVITE


It was the perfect weather to take pictures that day, not too sunny and a bit cloudy but the perfect lighting for photos.  We are so glad that we picked this place for our son's first field trip.  The place was eye candy, literally and figuratively.  We were at the Gingerbread House PH in Alfonso, Cavite.  The place where sweet tooth people like myself and "Instagram-is-life" peeps would really enjoy.  The Gingerbread House PH is a small candy-themed park located at Matagbak - Palumlum Road, Alfonso, Cavite.

WHY I LOVE UKAY-UKAY (THRIFT SHOPPING)


As a cheapskate myself, I love cheap stuff, obviously, that is why I am suki at ukay-ukays or thrift shops.  I know the value of hard-earned money and would not waste money on clothes that have really bad stitching or low-class fabric which are way overpriced just because they are displayed at the malls or boutiques.  Here are some of the reasons why I love thrift shopping or ukay-ukay.

MAMA'S KITCHEN: EASY TRIPLE CHOCOLATE MOUSSE CAKE


Cake is always a good idea, and it was Sunday.  It is mama's cheat day, so I decided to make mousse cake, and not only your ordinary mousse cake, but the triple chocolate, eggless, Salmonella-free version.  I always see mousse cakes at famous bakeshops like Goldilocks and Red Ribbon.  They are quite pricey though for almost 350 to 570 and 340 and 540 respectively.  Making mousse cake is easy.  You can even do it with your kid as it requires no cooking, just mixing ingredients and waiting (the hardest part for me and kiddo).  Making your own mouse cake at home is also a form of bonding experience with your kids plus it costs way less compared to those sold at the cakeshops.
