This is one of my mom’s favorite foods. Every time I see vendors selling corn I will always buy for her. This food brings out the child in her (LOL)

Just a little fact:

Corn fiber is also good for reducing LDL (low density lipoproteins) or commonly known as “bad cholesterol”. My colleagues, especially those who have high bad cholesterol, eat corn as substitute to rice. Our canteen, before the management changed, served corn for lunch, but I haven’t tried it (*_*).

Corn is also good for diabetics according to the Department of Science and Technology- Food and Nutrition Research Institute (DoST-FNRI).

White corn contains low glycemic index (GI), which is the rank of food based on blood glucose response. Food that can easily be digested and could rapidly increase glucose in the blood are ranked 55 and up in terms of GI.

Food that is lower than 55 in GI cannot be digested easily. Therefore, the increase of glucose level in blood is slow and minimal. (Mitch Arceo) (Source)

My Niece Licking the Poop?

Last night a bat came in to our house freely flying. Too bad my cam was battery empty. This reminds me of the birds that are so at home that if windows are left open they’ll go inside and…. leave dirt, I mean their poop. Actually I blogged about this. I just forgot to post this pic of my niece who acted as if she’s licking the poop…. eewww!

Hey-ya! I miss this blog. I’ve been busy inviting readers to my newly migrated blog. Life Ascending is now a self-hosted blog! I’m still adjusting to the Wordpress platform though but I’m starting loving it. When I came back here I thought I need some revamp and found a free template that I sooooo LOVE…. I love the new look of this blog and the Ey to Zee Craft Blog. The problem is I forgot to copy the links of my blog friends. Sorry… Please let me know…. So I can add your link…

I wish I could also change the looks of my new blog. Hope I learn graphic design and web designing so that I can do it by myself..

The Flower Girl

He loves me… He loves me not….



Oh-uh! Baby your too young for that..


He loves me…. He loves me not….


He loves me!!!! Yehey…. Papa loves me…


I was browsing this in my file and saw the pics. She’s like playing “he loves me he loves me not” while pulling the petals individually.

When she saw the flowers in my mom’s garden, she asked me to pick some for her… She loves flower. She’s not even bothered when you put flower on her ear unlike other kids. But this time I inserted the flowers on her clipped curly hair. Which I think is cute. What do you think?

I think this kiddo is “maarte”. I can already see it…. LOL….

I’m lucky today…

Yes! Because I won Kelly Lucky’s Giveaway – the Karmin G3 Salon Pro Flat Iron. Actually it’s open to US and Canada only, but I left a comment to Kelly’s post, asking her if  I can join for my sister who’s currently residing at Canada. I didn’t receive any reply, or perhaps I missed it, so I honestly forgot about the flat iron that I’m dying to have.



I was really surprised when I read the email, this afternoon, from Kelly that I won it!!! I know my sister, Jeia will be happy with this….

Here’s her email:

Congratulations!  You won the Karmin Flat Iron for your sister in the giveaway at Kelly's Lucky You! 

Please send me her address within 48 hours to claim your prize.
If you have a minute and would like to help me find more sponsors for giveaways, please vote for me at

Best regards,

Day Dreaming…

A beach resort ideal for wedding reception, a restaurant with minimalist theme – he cooks for main course I’ll do the dessert and pastries, an apartment, a vacation house…. Oooohhhh… dreams… dreams... dreams…

I do not know if we can have it all; maybe in God’s own perfect time. But I guess of all I’ve mentioned having an apartment for rent, just like the Medellin Apartment, is attainable. It’s really one of the businesses that I want to venture.

Ruby Tuesday # 2

I do not know what plant is this, but it’s nice to see red in a green-dominated garden.
