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 :)

Most awesome #kindergarten school I've seen! ♥ Totally agree to let our kids experience getting hurt, etc, etc so they will be prepared for the real world. Cause and effect. Experience is the best teacher. And all that ;-)

Too Much Death

Our family just came from the funeral of my 26yo cousin (too young to die, yes) in the province, and was going directly to the city hospital to visit hubby's 93yo grandpa who's near-death. As I was going up the hospital steps, I glanced at the newspapers for sale and was shocked at the headline- #NepalEarthquake at 7.9 magnitude, over 1000 people feared dead.

You see, family deaths don't really affect me coz I truly believe in the afterlife, and that we will all see each other again. But seeing thousands of lives gone in one snap of the finger, that affects me profoundly. There's that fear of the power of nature / act of God that can just wipe all of us in a single second. #PrayForNepal, pray for the dead, pray for survivors, help the living. There's too much death already.

What technology can do! :) Hurray for #Hangouts and other groundbreaking tech apps!

What do you get by hiring slowly? People who will fly halfway across the world at a moment’s notice to help the +Dalai Lama celebrate +Desmond Tutu’s birthday over Hangouts.

In 2011 we learned the Dalai Lama was unable to join Desmond Tutu’s 80th birthday party because the South African government denied his visa request. So Loren Groves, a Noogler, flew to Cape Town the next day to help them connect over Hangouts, a special moment for them and a proud one for us.

This kind of dedication isn’t common and can’t be trained. But it’s what you’ll get if you’re willing to wait to hire the best people. #workrules #google #hangouts #hiring

The Power of Talking to Your Baby
opinionator.blogs.nytimes.com

The amount of language children hear in their first three years plays an important role in their future learning: the more talk from parents

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.
