Breakfast in Bed Never Gets Old

The only difference between the breakfasts then and the breakfasts now is that you are now capable of cooking something awesome for your mom. Skip the cereal. And, instead of opting for toast and simple ingredients, go all out. Use fresh berries to make a compote for a homemade batch of waffles, pancakes, or French toast. Really show your mom how much you care with a good meal, served hot to her bedside. (more…)

Kikay Corner’s Christmas Gift Ideas 2015

A list of what to give your loved ones this Christmas.

It’s exactly 25 days until Christmas, are you officially done with your shopping list? For the first time in forever, I can actually say I am done with holiday shopping! I realized that it’s a general tone for people to sound quite burdened when it comes to checking off Christmas lists, I’m choosing the other road this time around. This year, I resolve to being thrilled to be blessing the people I love. Not that I didn’t enjoy giving the past years, but unlike before, I now refuse to be weighed down by the pressure of having to give. Besides, the Bible verse is timeless: “It is more blessed to give than to receive.”

It has been an eventful year and I have been truly blessed by the people I’ve come across with – whether they are new ones or have spent time with a bunch of old friends as we nurture this gift called friendship.

Here’s hoping to share with you my personal picks for Christmas Gift Ideas 2015.

1. Presence.

presence

Merriam-Webster perfectly defined for us what presence mean. And as seemingly corny as it sounds, it truly has been an elusive thing these days. We’ve exchanged our presence for social media “connection,” and even when we’re with our loved ones, we tend to still be stuck, heads down, eyes glued on our smartphones. I’m guilty as charged. Obviously with my own albeit trivial online presence, I tend to check how my published posts are doing. But I’ve been doing better these days at being “present,” and hope to do better as I spend more time with family this holiday season.  As costless as “presence” seem to sound, it actually can cost us our default, which is to get hold of our smartphone. Offer the gift of your “presence” and have a real, meaningful conversation and quality time with the one you love. The gift of undivided attention is priceless!

Okay, before you get driven off the wall and begin to point out the many ways I’m contradicting myself, allow me to say that it’s really a matter of balance. (more…)

Celebrating Chinese New year at the Sky Ranch

Good fortune and a blessed year – these are the things that the Chinese New Year heralds, and why Filipinos have taken this holiday to heart and celebrated it along with our Tsinoy brothers and sisters. The Chinese New Year is not just about the fireworks (which can be and are always spectacular), but is about learning to attract the good things in life by letting go of the negative attitude to acquire a more positive one.

What better way to attain a high-minded perspective that will set the tone for the new Chinese New Year than by reveling in all the thrills that are offered by the Sky Ranch? Sky Ranch, an amusement park popular among children and the young-at-heart, celebrates the ties that bind the Filipino-Chinese community in the country and features the richness of the Chinese culture. Located beside the Taal Vista Hotel along Aguinaldo Highway, Sky Ranch showcased 19 fun rides and other attractions such as horseback riding and its 300-meter zip line.
