What do children want from their parents?

Jane   21 Mar , 2017  

Me with Turner's David Webb and James Moore

Ah, the golden question: what do our kids want? It’s actually very simple, as Turner’s New Generations 2017 study did a recent study in our country. You’ll know the answer as you read on. FYI, Turner’s Kids and Entertainment brands in Asia Pacific includes Cartoon Network, Boomerang, Toonami, Warner TV, Oh!K and TCM Turner Classic Movies, […]

Bixby Bridge

While fixing our LA-SFO itinerary, my husband and I decided to squeeze in 2 days in Big Sur. We’ve always enjoyed the drive via State Route 1/ Pacific Coast highway , although it’s a few hours longer, the view along the way makes it worth it. I had a difficult time finding a place to […]

Your Local + Yardstick

Keri   14 Sep , 2015  

My favourite dish at Your Local-  Torched Salmon Donburi- salmon cooked medium, mentaiko, oboro, ebiko, and salmon skin on roast corn and shitake fried rice.

A few days ago, Francis and I were invited by our favourite neighbors- Rob and Liz, to try the hip Asian fusion restaurant, Your Local. As soon as you enter the place , you’ll definitely feel that NYC bistro vibe- “exposed ceiling”, painted steel pipes, open kitchen, heavy wooden tables, dimmed lights, good music. I […]



On the LizQuen Bandwagon

Keri   26 Jul , 2015  

Finally meeting the gorgeous pair

Growing up, I never understood my Lola’s obsession with pinoy soap operas ( at that time, it was Mara Clara with Judy Ann Santos)- I thought all they did was to cry and fight. Then a couple of years ago, I got hooked on Boys Over Flowers, the popular Korean drama that became a hit […]

In Her Shoes: Monica Eleazar-Manzano

Keri   6 Jul , 2015  

Practicing yoga on the Jaisalmer desert in India

Monica happens to be one of the most inspiring women I’ve ever encountered. At her young age, she has successfully lived and pursued what she’s most passionate about- be it yoga practice, practicing a holistic lifestyle, advocate for conscious birth, traveling, etc. I admire her bravery and her determination to live up to her ideals […]


A Day Trip To Martha’s Vineyard

Keri   3 Jun , 2015  

Gay Head Lighthouse

Martha’s Vineyard has been on my bucket list for as long as I can remember.  My mom and I would always follow stories on the Kennedys and Martha’s Vineyard had been known to be  their second home.  It’s also a favourite vacation spot of US Presidents.   So while my husband was in Cambridge for […]

Let The Games Begin!

Keri   11 Mar , 2015  


My son Rocco loves celebrating his birthdays with big parties and a lot of friends.    I usually get stressed when it’s his turn to celebrate because he always wants a unique , fun , and “unrepeated theme” party.  Since he was turning 10, and has a huge collection of Nerf guns, plus he goes to […]

Life on A 3-day Juice Cleanse

Keri   4 Mar , 2015  


135. I haven’t seen those numbers in my scale since giving birth to my children. I know it’s still within the average weight for my height but I feel and look my best  at 120-125 pounds. To be honest , I’m also so tired of taking slimming teas and coffees and I’ve had it with […]
