what's auntielicious?

aunties, godmothers, friends who've got the greatest experiences caring for other people's children -- the ones that they didn't bring in this world, don't have to buy diapers for, and can return back to their parents once they do #2 -- and yet have the best time of their lives with these kids.

When the moon hits your eye like a big PIZZA pie...

That's amore!
Exactly what I felt when that huge pizza pie in the form of the Quattro Stagioni hit me here at Morgantina (formerly La Dolce Vita.)  In the middle of Las Pinas, the place seems unlikely but as you enter, it's completely like an Italian trattoria from the interiors to the inexpensive yet filling food. 

I wrote a full review about it on a local restaurant review site.

auntielicious tries: Alamid Coffee

My friend Marga was around the Southern area and came for the sole purpose of trying "the caviar of coffee" after learning from it in her MBA class.  She told me it was called alamid coffee -- civet coffee -- because it the civet, an exotic cat, would eat the coffee cherries and after digesting them, would have these coffee beans in its droppings.  And yes, that was the content of this exotic and rare brew.

PJ meets a friend

I thought I'd place a nice shot of my goddaughter PJ (left) and my friend's cute little Sunday Schooler toddler (right) in its raw form.  I was using George Michael (my Sony T5) which settings allowed to capture their hands in a blur in yellow and low lighting, but at least it didn't fail to capture their innocent expressions back at me. 

You see, before this, my goddaughter was having a lot of fun with her new friend.  He's so cute and such a hit with all the girls (including me!)

Peek a Boo!

Peek a boo! I was thinking of what stuff to add today to this blog and then this photo came out.  My nephew was just a year old!  So cute!  I guess the rest of the content will be a surprise! 

I'm a PANK!

I just recently learned that I'm a PANK (Professional Aunt, No Kids), which is actually quite fun to know that I'm part of an influential market segment.  Somebody knew this all along and didn't tell me!

I found that on a site called Savvy Auntie, of whose founder (Melanie Notkin), is someone I can relate to.  Aunties usually get the stereotype of being the old unkempt lady who will die alone in her dilapidated house with her cats.  Things have clearly changed.  (Manolos have replaced the cats!)

Just turning one!

Old classic photos of a picnic in Canada with my niece.  She was just turning one and a week right after was her birthday.  Just doing a collage of memories!  We went to the African lion safari here before the picnic.  Then a parade of elephants all linked together with their tails just walked by!  I thought that just happened in cartoons!

Captured via George Michael, my red Sony T5.  (Old, but I still like George Michael.)

Icky feet?

Well, this was us kidding around with my baby nephew's tangy smelling feet!  (It really is.)  But as you know (except for some very few exceptions), baby feet sweat can still be adorable until they're 2.

The above captured on my Macbook's Photo Booth!
