I made a big jar of Vegetarian Bagoong.
The resident “nose” and “tongue” aka taste tester in the house said she loves it. She even had two Indian mangoes eaten with the vegetarian bagoong.
And yeah, I plan to sell this healthy alternative to the usual bagoong alamang or shrimp paste soon.
Email me for orders
This is a jar of Homemade Cookie Butter that I just made today. The eldest child gave her two thumbs up so I guess I’m good to go make more to sell. Email me for details if you want to order
This new percussion kit at musicians friend is cool.
I used to play percussion or ok, LYRE or XYLOPHONE, back in the day. I also found out it was called Glockenspiel Xylophone. We’d carry the heavy thing all around town, walking (more like marching to the beat) while playing. It irked me a lot when those who have not memorized the notes play with us, ruining the music,
Ahhh…to be young, carefree and not have a lot of stress.
Can’t we just be these three for a while? No responsibilities to think of, no more bills to pay or no bargaining with tenacious teens who not just ask for big allowances, affordable cort bass guitars at musicians friend, or plain ask for the moon to be handed on a silver platter.
Sorry honey, it doesn’t work that way, you have to have responsibilities that go with whatever you fee you need to have, as long as your parents can afford it.
Did you give practical gifts last Christmas?
You know, things that can be used by the recipient? Or would these just gather dust and be discarded after a year?
I think we did. One of the gifts we gave away to the teachers were handmade notepads which they can use just in case they needed to write down notes and thoughts. The notepads were not big and could easily fit in a small bag.
These were the papers we used for the notepads. For more info on how these notepads were made, click here.
For the person who loves arts and crafts, arts and crafts materials are the best to give. To the guitar player, mel bay bass chart of scales and modes at Musicians Friend. For the one who loves to cook, a cookbook or a kitchen gadget.
These were just some ideas and I’m sure there are so much more practical gift ideas out there.
