Choco-Banana Pancake


Good alternative for breakfast. I like to cook pancakes coz I can modify the recipe and do anything with it. Here’s the one that I tried using Bisquick.  It’s actually more delicious and rich tasting than just plain pancake alone! Raymond like it very much!

Kids were really so strong, Sean said (Leo’s dad) before, you pretend they win and loose they’re feet on purpose but now they can really escaped.


While on dinner time,

Leo: Mom can I sit beside him (talking about Raymond)

Leo’s Mom: No, otherwise you’re just keep playing.

Me: Hmmmn. Yeah, I agree.


And this little munchkin is so cute! Miles bebe!

He is kind of a baby that “I only want my Mommy”!

But he got warmed up, sing a song for him, play with him a li’l bit and finally he smiled! 🙂

After having an ice cream, it was nice to see sun set, rest for a while and hanging out with kids at the backyard. Got mesmerized with this beautiful view at the backyard and feeling a bit sentimental yay!
