The Yayaless Life – helpless but not hopeless

Hellooooooooo!

My last blog entry was four months ago! I had planned on blogging more during my kids’ school break (May to July). But our helper, ate J, went home in early June for her mother’s funeral.

Guess what? She hasn’t come back. And isn’t coming back, I think. (Not that I want her back… anymore, hmp.) Welcome me to the yayaless club.

So that is my excuse for not blogging. While this blog has been silent, a lot has been going on. For the most part, I was occupied with transforming myself into… Tada!  Homemaker Extraordinaire – full time cook, laundry woman, cleaning maid, and of course, chauffeur! 😉 Continue reading The Yayaless Life – helpless but not hopeless

Tien Ma’s Taiwanese Cuisine | Best xiao long bao in Manila

I am obviously a big fan of Chinese food, as you can see from my many blog posts about it. Taiwanese food is my favorite of favorites. 😀 A simple porkchop pientong brings me sooo much joy.

I discovered Tien Ma’s Taiwanese Cuisine one morning a few weeks ago after having my blood work done.

I had not eaten breakfast yet, as the blood work required me to fast overnight. Driving around the Banawe area, I was on the look out for a nice breakfast place that I haven’t tried. Tien Ma’s on Retiro didn’t seem so busy yet, and there was a slot for my car right on the doorstep so, game – Tien Ma’s.
