Hello everyone! How are you all doing?

As you might know, I am half Filipino-half French and I am married to a Filipino man. As Filipinos, it is part of our culture and heritage to eat rice everyday. Back in the Philippines, we ate rice up to 3 times a day, but here in France we usually have rice once a day. But that’s just because breakfast is usually a quick one and we don’t usually eat lunch at home. I was told recently by a client that apparently Asians have a sort of stomach enzyme which makes it easier to eat and digest rice. I still have to confirm that information. While eating rice so regularly is a real pleasure for us, it’s not the case for our daughter, Baby Girl. She has a hard time understanding why rice is so frequent on our dining table. LOL. If she could cook our meals, she would prepare pasta and French fries. I do try to cook pasta from time to time, but I never make fries at home. The smell of cooking fried potatoes is not one that I particularly like, so we save that for when we go to the restaurant.

Happy 9th Birthday, Baby Girl!

HELLO!!! Today is Baby Girl’s 9th birthday and I’m so excited! 🙂 🙂 🙂

Inside of me, I knew that it was going to be complicated and at one point I informed the doctor that if there was a choice between the baby or me, she should save the baby.
