The past week was kinda a blur for me. Pope Francis, princess party, loads of outdoor activities, rainy nights, sick kids. It was no wonder I wasn't able to blog! o.O Hopefully I can get my me-time (aka blogging time, haha) this week :)

Yep, motherhood, that's what kept me from blogging this week. Plus cold, rainy nights~ haha! Yep, I just slept like a baby through the past nights and did not even attempt to blog. I have no idea what happened to Davao this w...

Can you live in an 8sqm apartment?! Yes, EIGHT! 😱😵 This YouTuber has lived in one for 7mos (at the time of her vid) in #Tokyo and is enjoying it!

Genetic #Adam and #Eve found, but they're not living together at the same place or time (ergo not 'married' as the biblical ones). Interesting!

Both men and women can trace their origins to a man and a woman who lived about 135,000 years ago.

The aliensss are calling.. :O #radiosignals #dwarfgalaxy #astronomy #deepspace
.
A mysterious signal coming from deep in the universe has finally been traced to its source. Fast Radio Bursts, or FRBs, have only been heard 18 times and have been a puzzle to scientists since they were detected in 2007. Nobody knows where they could be coming from or how they might be triggered, with speculation ranging from a huge star, jets of material shooting out of a black hole – or even aliens.

Because this collection is so often full of bad news, I wanted to offer an story about society working well: a (Muslim-owned) restaurant in London which is offering free meals to the homeless and elderly on Christmas day, so that "no one eats alone." They've been asking people to spread the word, and I'm happy to help do so.

h/t +Cindy Brown
A Muslim-owned restaurant in London is offering a three-course meal to homeless and elderly people on Christmas Day so that “no one eats alone”. Shish Restaurant, in Sidcup, is asking local residents to spread the word of its offer and has put up posters saying “We are here to sit with you” on 25 December. The restaurant urged people to share its plan through social media - where the initiative was widely praised.

#Medicine tech worth following: blood test to diagnose #concussion by checking minute amounts of #tauprotein in bloodstream. Yes, that's the same protein involved in #AlzheimersDisease so maybe, hopefully, this test can be modified to detect early Alzheimer's.

#Sweden, you are AMAZING!! 😍😊

#trashLESS #reducereuserecycle
.
Sweden is so good at recycling that, for several years, it has imported rubbish from other countries to keep its recycling plants going. Less than 1 per cent of Swedish household waste was sent to landfill last year or any year since 2011. We can only dream of such an effective system in the UK, which is why we end up paying expensive transport costs to send rubbish to be recycled overseas rather than paying fines to send it to landfill under The...

LOL! My life 15yrs ago (single with no kids) while addicted to #TheSims and #SidMeier's Civilization :) NOW: replace the PC with a 64gb Android phone and add 2 clingy kids by the side, haha. Wonder what's in store after 15yrs!

I would, but making chicken enchiladas (from scratch) for dinner doesn't count as a wasted day.

We were the first customer the day we had lunch in Casa Armas. As such, the staff was still busy preparing the restaurant and weren't so attentive to us. But they were friendly enough. Their food is really good, especially their Tapas (which you buy per piece) and Spanish rice. Their Tapa (marinated beef slices) which was listed in their bestsellers section, however, did not live up to our expectations. We've had better Tapa in less classy joints ;-) For drinks, we had the House Blend Ice Tea which was excellent! I hope they'll add a bottomless option for it because one glass isn't enough. Overall, our Casa Armas experience was very good. Good service, excellent food, classy ambiance.

Must-try: xiao long bao and pork buns. Soupy pork goodness in every bite! :) Service is good (servers were helpful) and waiting time for the food was reasonable. However, waiting time might be longer if you'll eat during rush hours. The restaurant has comfy ambiance and the see-through glass kitchen is an added bonus :)

Stayed for 3d/2n with my family (2 kids included) and we have no complaints whatsoever. The Junior Suite we stayed in was well-maintained, with functional kitchenette and big tub / rainshower in the bathroom. Room service food was fast, affordable (given it's hotel food) and delicious. The hotel staff was friendly, accommodating and always ready to help. Best part? Lancaster Hotel is just 5-10min away from MRT Shaw, Shangri-La Plaza and SM Megamall ^__^

Quality of food is excellent! We had Crabmeat pizza and Kansas City bbq ribs. However, the wait for food was quite long and to think we were the only customer there on a late weekday afternoon. On a more positive note, the waiters were very attentive- constantly refilling hubby's bottomless drink and were quick to offer us free food (boiled corn) when our food took so long to arrive.
