[learning the basics of food styling at THE MAYA KITCHEN]

Don't you just love looking at food that is so picture-pretty in glossy magazines? Well, I do. :)

Though I know how to cook simple dishes, with pasta meals & desserts being my forte, it's the food presentation that piques my interest. Just like interior styling, I love picking out items, getting them all together & capturing the overall look. :)

Aside from doing interiors, food photography & food styling are what I have been meaning to study & do. In fact, I almost signed up in a workshop last year but never got around to doing it.

But a chance came up two Saturdays ago. I got signed up in such a class at The Maya Kitchen thru an opportunity sent our way by Mommy Bloggers Philippines.

The Maya Kitchen  is located at Level 8 of the Liberty Building in Makati City.

I was one of the early birds so I had time to take photos of the venue.


[A PLDT HOME DSL movie treat - the Amazing Spiderman 2]

For 2 weeks in a row, Friday nights have been fun times for the family. Especially the recent one, when the girls got so excited when I told them, we got free tickets to THE AMAZING SPIDERMAN 2 movie. This came on the heels of that other movie we watched & loved. Super thanks to PLDT Home DSL for both treats! :)

The gist of the movie.

  1. We've always known that Spider-Man's most important battle has been within himself: the struggle between the ordinary obligations of Peter Parker and the extraordinary responsibilities of Spider-Man. It's great to be Spider-Man. For Peter Parker, there's no feeling quite like swinging between skyscrapers, embracing being the hero, and spending time with Gwen. But being Spider-Man comes at a price: only Spider-Man can protect his fellow New Yorkers from the formidable villains that threaten the city. With the emergence of Electro, Peter must confront a foe far more powerful than he. And as his old friend, Harry Osborn, returns, Peter comes to realize that all of his enemies have one thing in common: OsCorp.

And the reasons for my girls' giddiness.

Andrew Garfield aka Peter Parker 


& Dane De Haan aka Harry Osborn.


Two of the Ledesmas were there - Mommy Lara & Diego.

They gave away cute SPIDEY plush toys to lucky moviegoers.

And while waiting for the movie to start, my girls uploaded photos in IG with the hastag #PLDTHOMEDSL

& minutes later, got their photo printed out from a booth nearby.

Before screening time, Mommy Lara & Diego shared how PLDT Home DSL's "limitless sharing with the strong reliable family-sized connection" helps them do so many things online using multiple gadgets simultaneously - researching topics for school assignments, updating social media accounts, music & video streaming, looking for recipes to try, or answering questions posted in the little one's ASK DIEGO FB page. 

The whole fambam enjoyed watching the action-packed movie & swooned over the romantic moments of reel & real life celebrity couple, Emma Stone (Gwen Stacy) & Andrew Garfield (Peter Parker/Spiderman)

while snacking on our hotdog sandwiches, tubs of popcorn & tumblers of iced tea. :)
