Myanmar is like going back to the past

A trip to Myanmar, I would say, will either amaze you or disappoint you. Most roads are unpaved, the buildings are old - like super old old, even the city gives you a probinsya feel.
It's like travelling back in time, say 20 years. 

BUT, if you are into culture appeciation like seeing people still wearing traditonal clothes even at school and at work, walking barefoot going to temples, watching monks cross a busy expressway, looking at people with white paste from a tree bark on their faces (a tradition) even while in the office, visiting amazing pagodas and more, then pack your bags and head to Myanmar. 

It's a trip to remember!

Easy Peasy Homemade Ice Cream

My home-made mango ice cream! Woohoo!! Have I been living under a rock? This is so easy to make pala!

Actually, making this brings back memories of my Dad, and just at the right time as it's also the anniversary of his passing.

When we were kids our Dad bought an ice cream machine and we were very excited to try it for the first time. My recollection was it took a while to gather all the ingredients and the machine to work its magic. Ignorant that I was then I was even amazed we had to put salt on the ice inside the machine. To cut the story short, that was the first ang LAST time we used that ice cream machine. We figured it's quicker and cheaper to just buy. Parang namahalan kami sa asin hahaha 😊I think my mom still kept it for whatever reason. 

I think we're not going to buy ice cream for a very long time 😊
