Tulog Lamok

1 comment:
malamlam ang talukap ng 'yong mga mata
ultimo babagsak sa konting ugoy ng bisig ng ina't ama
ang iyong panuro'y patupat na kaagapay
sa hele at awit na kay tamis sinasambit

bumagsak na nga at napadpad na
ang iyong ulirat sa alapaap ng panaginip
ang katahimikang nababanaag sa anghel mong mukha'y
walang kapantay

ngawit at bigat ay di tagalan
nahimlay ng ikaw ay bitiwan
umasang mahaba at mahimbing
at may magagawang kabanata

uminat at humikab sabay pumikit
nagpasalamat sa muling paghimbing
kaunting kaluskos ikaw ay nagising
tulog lamok, tulog lamok halika na
ikaw ay bubuhatin

Homemade Pizza


Today is special. Prince turns three months. Since it is his birthday, I made three large pizzas and half a kilo of pasta carbonara for dinner. This isn't my first time to make a homemade pizza. At the beginning of my first pizza making experience, I thought it is hard to make my own dough but with a little research and a help from my partner, it is a breeze to prepare the dough and I was able to cook this wonderful-looking and great tasting homemade pizza.

For the Dough - you will need

3 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour, bread flour is even better
1 1/2 cups of lukewarm water-it need to be warm to make your dough elastic 
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp sugar
2 tsp salt
1 sachet of yeast

All you have to do is to mix all of the ingredients, kneed it for about five to ten minutes until all the water is absorbed and the flour looks evenly mixed. This recipe makes three thin crust of dough for your homemade pizza

To make your own Pizza Sauce you will need

1 small can of tomato sauce
2 tbsp of tomato paste
1/2 tsp of dried oregano
1/2 tsp of dried basil
salt & pepper to taste

Mix it all together and it is ready to spread on your pizza dough. The toppings depend on your preference, it can be vegetarian, meat lover or Hawaiian like our favorite. You can be more adventurous and may want to try seafood.

Most especially, the taste depends on your choice of cheese whether cheddar or mozzarella or mixed. Baking time is only about 10 minutes on the highest oven temperature. To achieve that crunchy pizza crust, use of pizza stone is recommended but if it is not available, pizza pan or foil is fine.

Isn't that lovely. Made at the comfort of your own home, as for me, my family love it, I love it!

Happy Three Months Prince

The Little Prince

Hi folks, salam, hello there everyone, I miss you guys! I am back!

Do you know the book The Little Prince?

I remember reading this book when I was in high school and I've been meaning to read it again however that is not the topic of today's post. I know everyone is waiting for 'the announcement.'

Baby naming is such a challenging job for parents. Since I and my husband got married, we've been dreaming of naming our baby as Lance, we think that it is a very nice name and it is inspired by our first baby-our Mitsubishi lancer-our very first car.

The photos are taken way back in 2003, I was pregnant with our first baby who happens to be a girl and since Lance is meant for a boy, we named her Lanna Micaela, Lanna is Superman's leading lady in SmalleVille who was played by Christine Kruk. Micaela is my husbands favorite baby name for a girl.

After Six Years...

A new inspiration is here and he needs a name. We decided that we will call him Lance Jerard, then we changed our mind and we said we will name him Lance Ferald and again we could not make up our mind and finally we said we will call him Lance Gabriel. Alright, so we are settled with Lance Gabriel.

At the delivery suite #4 at Al Wasl Hospital, my husband just happened to think of another name that he wants to add to the baby's name, he wanted to add Prince. I am already in pain every two minutes and I could not clearly think but the sound of Prince pleases me so I agreed with him. The baby's name became Prince Lance Gabriel. It's a pretty name though some family members and friends says it is too long and joke to us that he will be late for his exams by just writing his name on the paper. We are the parents and I certainly believed that the little prince will be thankful enough for his beautiful name.

Now its time to meet the Prince.....

The above photo was taken seconds after Prince was born. He was kept in my chest skin contact for warmth and bonding of the baby and mother. It was a wonderful feeling to hold him for the very first time. All the labor pain is gone now and only the pain from the wound is there. The warmth of my body calms Prince and he stops crying now reaching for some milk. :)

I promise more photos on upcoming posts. Ciao for now! mommy needs to feed the baby!
