JP Nido 3+ jane cheng

Three kids. Three kids all going to school now. Last week was their first week of school, and we didn’t even have a yaya then. Thank goodness for having a husband who is very supportive, and we have been taking turns taking care of the three kids: going back and forth from the house to […]

I love dressing up my 16 year old daughter. If only I can choose all the items in her wardrobe , I would . But she and I are quite different . While I enjoy shopping , I’m proud to say that she’s very practical . Amanda will not shop unless it’s needed ( for […]

Recently, hubby and I had our very first PTC by MindChamps Greenhills. Now, parents are hardly allowed inside the campus proper, so it was a thrill to see shobe’s works on display 🙂 To those who are wondering why parents aren’t allowed to go inside, I think you’d agree with me on this that our […]

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.

Exploring Big Sur

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 […]

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 […]
