A few months ago while waiting for my new tires to be mounted, I decided to bring my 81 year old mother to one of the newer restaurants
in town, KUYA J, and surprise, surprise...she liked it! This
was great news because as she is getting on in years, my mom's taste
buds have changed, and more often than not, eating has become like a
chore for her. She was also very picky when it comes to eating out. And
so it was a joy to see her enjoying the food and eating with gusto the
dishes set before her. I was so tempted to shout, Hurray for Kuya J! This family oriented restaurant that serves authentic Filipino dishes, began in Cebu and is now one of the fastest growing chain of restaurants in the country.
Chinese New Year will be on February 8, 2016, the start of the Year of the Fire (Red) Monkey. I am not superstitious and don't really believe in fortune-telling, but I am open to all suggestions since I was born in a monkey year. Not many people or places celebrate Chinese New Year but in the Philippines, it is a public holiday. Most Chinese-Filipino communities in other parts of the country have some sort of celebration, whether big or small. Here are some ways to welcome the Year of the Fire Monkey in Bacolod City and the Province of Negros Occidental:
I am not a fan of any kind of astrology or fortune telling so it is no surprise that I was not aware that 2016 is the Year of the Monkey. When someone told me, I shrugged and promptly put it out of my mind. But with the upcoming Chinese New year celebrations and many social media posts about it, I learned that not only is 2016 a monkey year but it is that of a fire/red monkey, an element-sign combination that recurs every 60 years, the last time was in 1956, the year I was born. Yes, dear readers, I am turning 60 this year. And so I thought, hey, maybe it would be interesting to find out more about my Chinese Zodiac Monkey.
Before the Year of the Green Sheep ends, the Negrense Blogging Society, Inc. would like convey a message of thanks to our valued sponsors and friends for their support in our activities the past year. It has been a very fruitful and enjoyable partnership, which we hope will continue as long as there are bloggers and the society exist. We look forward to many happy collaboration in this Year of the Red Monkey.
Dress Up And Look Flawless With This Purple Sequin Mesh and Strapless Short Dress!
I recently had the experience of getting invitations from friends, of weddings that require you to not only dress up presentably, but also elegantly because she kindly asked you to be one of her bridesmaids. I was a little stressed out looking for something to wear. With a job on the weekdays, and spending time with family and friends on the weekends, I barely had time to go shopping out in stores.
I am a member of the working class, a daughter, a sister, a mom, a physician, a caregiver, the family driver and troubleshooter, house princess aka señorita, nurturer, meddler, Blogger etc. I am Roman Catholic and have great faith and trust in God and His Divine providence and intervention.
