So proud of these students for mounting the Life Legacy Banquet. They all worked together, each batch with their own assignments and executed the event beautifully! I’m grateful to have journeyed with you through the etiquette and self-presentation sessions. 🙂
Welcome to another healthy, meat-free cooking session! We tried out Astig Vegan’s version of Filipino Vegan Menudo but we didn’t have all the ingredients listed on her website so we just worked with what was available at home.
-Tofu (diced and fried)
-Garlic (3-4 big cloves, minced)
-Onion (medium, chopped)
-Tomato (3-4 pieces, chopped)
-1 small packet of tomato paste
-1/2 cup soy sauce
It wasn’t bad for a first try and I’m glad it DID taste like menudo. Of course, I know we can make it taste richer and better when we cook this again. Let me know if you try this at home. Thanks Astig Vegan for the recipe & inspiration!
What’s it like to get an antioxidant & vitamin infusion? Is it scary? Are there side effects? Is it just for those who want to lighten their skin? I know, there are so many questions. Before going through this, I of course consulted with Dr. Jake before getting the green light. This video pretty much encapsulates the whole 30-45 minute session.
Hey everyone! A lot of you have been asking about the #meatless & #plantbased recipes my husband & I prepare at home, so here’s another cooking video. I got this recipe from one of the vegan groups I follow on Facebook and gave it a try. Here are the ingredients: -Half a block of tofu -2 eggplants -Garlic and onion -Toyo (soy sauce) -Kalamansi Please let me know if you get to try this for yourself! I love that the ingredients can be found in the market or grocery store and that it’s so easy to cook.
Having a practical wardrobe doesn’t mean that you compromise your style. While it may seem like a tough thing to do at first, you will realize that dressing will become easy and you won’t have to spend excess money on things that are not right for your body and lifestyle. When I started working and earning my own keep, I was often tempted to splurge on clothes and shoes because I somewhat felt empowered that I was making my own money and I could decide where to spend it. Of course, that didn’t last for long. I made purchasing mistakes, learned to manage my money better and here I am after a decade from then, talking about these lessons so you don’t commit the same mistakes I made.
I don’t talk about #KonMari in the video, although I admire Marie Kondo’s method of decluttering and letting go of things that no longer spark joy in a person’s life. Still, there may be things in your closet that may appear to spark joy in you but is no longer functional for your current lifestyle and season. Check out the 5 Steps I talk about in the video and tell me how it goes for you in the comment section below.
It was a challenge compressing lessons + stories from my 15 years of radio experience to just 5 points. Will definitely come up with a Part 2! 🙂
Last weekend, I got to try the X-A5 mirrorless camera at the Sample Room & Fujifilm Content Creation workshop held at Space 1851 Manila along with other content creators and bloggers. The Fujifilm X-A5 is an entry-level mirrorless camera which is packed with features that allow users to take beautifully composed shots that are immediately ready for upload and sharing.
Angelique Manto, a sports reporter, host, Fujifilm ambassador and my fellow Thomasian (Go USTe!) shared some tips and tricks on Instagram curation, how she takes photos and why she loves using the X-A5 on the go.
After the workshop, we were tasked to take different photos using the X-A5’s Bright Mode, Portrait Enhancer and the Night+ Mode. These automatic modes are supposed to make it easy to just snap and share for people on the go.
I wish I had time to try out it’s video capabilities but let’s save that for another day. I devoted my time to planning out and capturing my shots since they only had a limited number of units for us to borrow. If we’re talking social media photography, I think this is a good camera to start with because it’s easy to use, lightweight and has preset modes that don’t need much filters and lighting fixes. Of course, if you have a signature look for your photos, by all means, edit away! The camera retails at P29,990 and is bundled with an XC15-45mm lens. For a list of other available XC lenses, you can visit the Fujifilm PH website.
I gave a short talk on appearance, poise and behavior for the ushering and welcome ministry of Focus on Christ International Ministries.
After two years of driving Carly, her parts started to break down one by one and I had to make that decision to part ways with her. I did the final batch of repairs & put her up on sale but it wasn’t that easy. Even that was a process that built my faith & character. This is the story of how I said goodbye to Carly and welcomed Monsour, my brand new car.
