CANstruction at NorthPark Center Benefiting The North Dallas Food Bank ( Momimhar posted on September 5th, 2021 )

The Monopoly man.

I took darling daughter to NorthPark Center (in Dallas, TX) to see an exhibit created from canned goods built by the talented local teams of designers, architects, engineers, and contractors. It’s called CANstruction. The main purpose of the exhibit is to gather food donations for the North Texas Food Bank.

The structures were skillfully and intricately built. Darling daughter and I were so fascinated. We even played the Guess How Many game to find out how many cans were in each structure.

Below are our few favorites from the exhibit.

Family and Friends Summer Cabin Experience ( Momimhar posted on August 15th, 2021 )

Several weeks ago, we went to a cabin summer getaway with some close friends of mine. It was my dear friend K who actually asked everyone in our friend circle if any of us wanted to join. The cabin location was in Hochatown, Oklahoma, where the popular Beaver’s Bend State Park is. This friends and family get-together plan has been long overdue because we couldn’t get an ideal schedule for some reason. Finally, it came true.

So my friend booked an 8-room cabin near the state park. The luxury cabin is called Lakeside Mansion, and it was huge! It’s a fully-furnished cabin with big patio, outdoor jacuzzi, and a fishing deck. It was a 4 days and 3 nights weekend accommodation for 8 families with young children and teenagers.

Because it was located near the state park, and it’s summer, we had a lot of fun. Water activities and swimming in the river kept the young ones busy. Us moms got busy with the cooking and chaperoning. The dads stood as guardians and took care of the expenses. Haha.

Also, it was a Father’s Day weekend, so we prepared a restaurant fine dining dinner for the dads at the cabin that Saturday night. We cooked:

  • Brisket
  • Chicken Fajitas
  • Mashed Potatoes
  • Clam Chowder
  • Salad
  • Wine

Us moms had our own dinner table. We prepared a “Boodle Fight” style table. All the food was spread out in an arranged manner on banana leaves.

  • Pork BBQ
  • Grilled Fish
  • Grilled Squid
  • Grilled Shrimp
  • Roasted Chicken
  • Rice
  • Pansit
  • Bibingka
  • Suman
  • Fruit variety

S’mores night. Yum!

Summer Kick-off 2021 At The Recreation Center ( Momimhar posted on July 10th, 2021 )

It’s summer once again. Yay! Are you all excited? Summer vacations, beach days, dips in the pool, and lots of other summer activities for the kids and family are waiting.

We have lots of fun stuff planned this Summer Break. One of them is attending this 2021 Summer Kick-Off Party at the recreation center. It’s a drive-thru event and, luckily, we were able to get there the last minute before it was over. My darling daughter and her friends were so happy. They were given popsicles and goody bags.

After that, we went to the library to borrow some books, of course. Lots of fun summer programs for children this year. We cannot wait to join them.

Have a happy summer!
