Glorious Coffee That's Good For You

My husband and I loves drinking coffee. In the morning, it is our bonding moment, to sip and eat bread and talk about our plans for the day. But recently, he was diagnosed to have Diabetes Type 2. So I abruptly cut his coffee from his system because he cannot take black coffee. He is really sad about it but I am trying to figure out how to incorporate coffee again in his system. For decades, coffee had received a bad reputation. Besides allegedly triggering high blood pressure, insomnia, and hyperacidity, the Filipino habit of adding lots of sugar and cream to one’s cup has been said to aggravate diabetes. While there’s no denying the Pinoy coffee fan his morning cup, there is concern over the amount of sugar present in commercial 3-in-1 coffee mixes. The leading brand has 14.6 grams of sugar in one 20-gram sachet alone. Imagine how much sugar you’re taking in if you drink an average of three cups of coffee a day. What About Sugar-Free Coffee?

Family Dinner at David's Tea House

My aunt attended the Philippine Pediatric Society Annual Convention weeks ago. If I remembered it right we were the ones who usually come with her to attend the convention here in Manila (we were still living in the province) and because she doesn't have a family of her own, she tags us along with her every time and that was more than a decade ago. If there's one thing I am thankful for being in a family of physicians is that I have supply of vitamins for my tots--yearly supply. Eversince they were born I didn't spend much on their vitamins and I only buy if they ran out of their alternative. I get a supply of milk, rice cereals and expensive skin care products from them. She was our pediatrician when we were kids and became the pedia of my kids when we were still in the province.

We didn't get to visit her at the hotel but we meet up on the last day of her convention. We picked her up at the the PICC and went to Mall of Asia for our dinner. Their love for food is our way of family bonding. I think it is very obvious from what we ordered during our dinner.

The little girl fell asleep already en route to the restaurant. Took pictures while waiting for our order.


The waiters served our ginormous dinner just in time. We ended up taking home doggy bags because we can't finish everything anymore. My little boy enjoyed their food as well as the little girl. My niece who is very fond of my little boy became my instant babysitter because she was the one feeding LJ that night. One thing I noticed from the restaurant is they don't have high chairs for babies. I had to feed A sitting on my lap which was very inconvenient because she grabs everything from the table. I'm just not sure if all their branches are the same. 

My niece and the little boy was amazed with the small artificial fishes swimming up and down the tubes. 

They were having conversation when randomly my niece asked LJ,
I : LJ, what's you favorite color?
LJ : Led (red). 

Seriously I'm not sure if it's his favorite color though he gave the right answer to the question. Oh my little boy is growing up so fast.
