HELEN’S DELICIOUSLY SAVOURY SIOPAO WITH PORK FILLING (Steam Bun With Pork Filling)

Good Wednesday morning, everyone! How’s your Wednesday morning going so far? This morning, I’m thankful I rechecked my work schedule. Somehow, I kept thinking that I have to work this morning, but when I rechecked my schedule, I was like, “oh gosh, I’m closing again.” However, that’s what we call #itslife ☺


At this moment, right now, I am just going to enjoy another Siopao that I bought from my friend (Steam Bun with Pork Filling) to go with my morning coffee. I bought one dozen of it, and if you’re an Asian like me, a dozen steam bun really won’t last long, hehe. Shoutout to my friend, Helen. She did a great job! I will definitely buy SIOPAO from her again ☺.

If you want to order, don’t hesitate to send her a message (◄◄).

Where Has My Day Off Gone!?

I’m physically exhausted after working for seven days straight. When I’m at work, I always give my best to do my job well done because I was hired and get paid for it. I do not particularly appreciate going to work and do nothing. It’s not who I am. Thank God; finally, it’s my day off today. I woke up so late, had brunch, went back to bed, and got up at 1:00 p.m. Sounds good, right? However, there was nothing to be excited about this day off. You know why? The day just went by so fast. The next thing I know it’s 5:00 p.m, and I haven’t done any house chores except washing the dishes only. I usually multitask in doing house chores, but I didn’t have the energy to do those things today. I am not even cooking for dinner! The easiest thing was going out to eat for dinner and came back home right after. So, right now, I’m just sitting right here relaxing and sharing with you about how my day off goes. Well, honestly, it doesn’t feel like a day off to me at all!

So, my question to you is, “How do you spend your day off ?”

My brunch. A cup of coffee and rolls of Hawaiian bread.

Dining at EL-PASO Mexican Grill.

I NEED TO LAUGH: Today’s Funniest Quote Picks

Who else wants to laugh? I need it this morning. You want to know why? Well, if you are a mother who has little boys that do not get along with each other well, you probably understand why I need to laugh this very early morning. Getting up early to have them ready for school, fix them breakfast, and give them their school money to buy a snack and drink during recess time, however, when asking them one thing (and I mean one thing only), they wouldn’t listen without complaining first. Seriously? I remember growing up; I didn’t complain much like my kids now. Growing up, my parents and grandparents always reminded us of the words “obey first before you complain.” Most kids nowadays like to complain first before obeying. I don’t say that it happens every day, not it doesn’t. However, when it happens, it’s almost too much!

After I dropped them at their school, I was talking to my self while driving back home. I was telling myself that I need to laugh. I need something that will make me laugh to brighten up my morning. So, when I got home, I looked up for the funniest quotes online. There’s a lot of funny quotes I read, but these quotes below are the most hilarious. It worked! I laughed, and it lightens up my mood. I hope these quotes will make you laugh, as well. Have a beautiful and blessed day!

Lifestyle: Autumn Breeze And A Cup Of Coffee Kind Of Morning

Last night when I got home from work, I was physically worn out. I told Sean, I’m going to be sleeping today and do nothing. Thankfully, he doesn’t have any problem with that. He is so supportive of me in everything. So yes, I woke up late this morning, and he even told me to go back to sleep if I wanted to. He is amazing! However, I need my morning coffee rather than going back to bed, lol.

It was a hectic day at work yesterday. Seven hours of work seemed like forever. I was exhausted! I’m so grateful that I’m off this whole weekend. At least, I can relax and recover fast (hopefully) from being so physically tired.

By the way, let’s talk about FALL Season. Finally, Autumn is here. Gosh, you have no idea how excited I am. Just to let you know, this is my favorite season of the year. I don’t like the Winter season because I hate cold. I don’t like the Spring season because of allergies. Summer is okay, but I’m not a big fan of it because it’s too hot! How about you? What is your favorite season of the year, and why?

Great Sunday Service At Church + Celebration For All The September Birthday Celebrants After The Service

We had a great time at our church this morning. The Praise and Worship were so beautiful and moving. Also, listening to the Word of God through our Pastor was very powerful and very clear! God’s word is sharper than a double-edged sword. If you feel hurt by listening to the truth, then you are blessed because the truth hurts, and it helps us do the right thing. I feel so blessed to hear the truth, and you should experience the same way too.

After the service, we all had a great time celebrating all the September birthday celebrants at our church (we celebrate monthly birthday celebrants once a month at our church). It was a great fellowship! Thanks to our church pastor Gerald Brinkley for being there for us all the time. Thanks to ate Nelda and Kuya Mike for all the efforts they put into making this fellowship happen every month. Lastly, thanks to everyone who attended this morning, and for all the delicious food you cooked and brought for everyone to partake. God bless us all!

Don’t Tell People Your Dreams. SHOW THEM!

Hello everyone! How are you doing? I have been #MIA (missing in action) for a while due to so many things. Being a working mom is not easy. I’m sure all working moms out there can relate to this. Being a working mom, you seldom have time for yourself. Everything you do, you do it for your family and for your children (if you have any). And when you have supposedly “time for yourself,” well, you will still be doing stuff for your family. Anyway, it’s the reality of life, and I’m not complaining.

Anyway, I’m more grateful to God for everything that is happening in my life right now. It is very accurate; everything happens for a reason. So, I might be a very busy “working” mom, that’s because I have a dream. A dream not only for myself but for my children and their future, and also for everyone I love. And now, I’m back! Having my family as my inspiration, I’m so ready to face this new chapter in my life with a more positive attitude. Also, you’ll be seeing me blogging more often this time around, hahaha. I can’t wait to share you so many things that I always thought of sharing but didn’t because of doubt. See? #DOUBT kills your dream. Don’t let doubt stop you from achieving your goal. Be a go-getter!

Until next time,

Ester
