Celebrations & Occasions Food & Dining My Kids

Mother’s Day 2015

Mother’s Day came a week early for me this year. Together with their tita Raquel & Vikings Luxury Buffet, I got the surprise of my life when the GOppets gave me a highly emotional & beautiful mother’s day greeting..

With a gorgeous 10-dozen multi-colored rose bouquet to boot, I thought that was it. Because lemme tell you, THAT was the most overwhelming & heartfelt gift I have ever received in my life. So I really wasn’t expecting any more.

But my kids, they’re not one to stop at just one surprise. On Mother’s Day, the one day of the year reserved especially for mothers, they gave me more gifts. And because I’m a material girl living in a material world, I was SUPER happy! <3

It is highly impossible & improbable for the kids not to surprise me on any occasion. Even though I ask them to save their money & spend it on themselves, they still scrimp & save just so they have something to gift to me EVERY. SINGLE. OCCASION. And then some. Just when I thought the moving video was more than enough, here comes a deluge of gifts ready for me to open this beautiful mother’s day. I am all cried out. I am all talked out. Thank you my loves for loving me so much & putting me on such a high pedestal. I am one BLESSED mommah & I thank God everyday for dreams & wishes that came true. And yay for new OOTDs & BbCream!

Ever since I became a mommy, I have always shared my Mother’s day celebration with my mom & MIL. This year was not different. After church, we went to BGC to have lunch & walk around a bit.

Because the mudras preferred seafood, we ate at Murray’s New Orleans.



The mudras obviously don’t like selfies, we-fies, or any kind of photogra-fies! So after numerous futile attempts of getting them to smile at the cam, nag-solo nalang ako noh, bakit ba! :P


Weeeeee.. I am a social butterfly. Hmph. Ayaw talaga nilang mag-smile! #sourpuss @_@



It’s okay. Solo shot is always better anyway. In fact, I like this shot so much I might just make it my profit pic here to replace the now with the cupcake wheel! ;) Thank you Ate! :-*

Dear Mommy. Oh how I wish you plenty of things. I wish you love, I wish you peace, I wish you happiness. Life has not been good to you, you have been dealt with a path riddled with thorns. All your life you had your heavy cross to bear, and until now you are still bearing it. Oh mommy, how I wish I can make life easier for you. how I wish you had the life that I got to live. I am sad that your life is so empty. That you have been cheated of the chance of a joyful life. Sorrow & problems seem to always follow you all the days. How I wish that the dark cloud will one day suddenly lift and the sun will finally shine in your favor. My heart bleeds that you have been shortchanged of what you truly deserve. I pray that there is still time left for you to enjoy life & be happy surrounded by people you love. I take comfort for you in this verse.. 1 Corinthians 2:9 “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love him.” Thank you for being the best mother that you can be for me. I love you, happy Mother’s day mommy!

Before going home, Ate asked for a side trip to Paranaque. Yun pala she had another surprise up her sleeve. A beautiful Ms. Piggy Cake! Now this brought even more happy smiles to my already popping face! <3


My beautiful Ms. Piggy naked (no icing) dark chocolate cake filled with homemade caramel & covered in milk chocolate frosting by Ate‘s homebaker friend Sars Lapena of PATEACHERIE (coz she’s a teacher AND a baker, lol -clever!). #paTEACHERie It was sitting on my lap all the way home & it took all of my willpower not to lick it. (Plus I was also under strict supervision, sheesh!) The struggle was real!



What a beauty. I wanted to keep this forever! <3 I want to have stepping stones for my garden made like this is the exact same colors! <3



Sars is so brilliant to come out with a naked cake. Usually all the thick icing just goes to waste so this way, less sugar, less mess. Sugar & Spice approved! \m/



So. It’s been a really hot & humid day so pardon the washed out face, :P



I like how the cake wasn’t too sweet so I was allowed to eat a whole slice by my strict dieticians! :P Plus the no-icing feature meant I don’t have to worry too much about the high sugar intake.



Poor Ms. Piggy! This is total sadness BOO! </3



The kids wanted a face-off between my cake & my dear Lelly. So not happening! @_@

The day I became a mother was the best day of my life. Growing up. that’s all I ever wanted. To be a mom and have little people who belonged to me & whom I will love forever & cherish.

I am so blessed to have these 3 wonderful people. They never fail to lift me up when I am down. They are what keeps my heart beating. I cannot imagine a life without them as they give meaning to my life.


They are wonderful kids who always love me, protect me, and care for me. Never have they done anything to make me sad or unhappy. I don’t know what I did to deserve such great kids who love me so much & unconditionally, but I thank my lucky stars each & every day for the gift of them.

Kids, thank you for making me a mother. Thank you for making all my dreams & wishes come true. You guys complete me. The reason for my being. Every day that I get to spend with you is a day of blessing.

Thank you for going easy on me & for being such manageable kids. I hear of horror stories & I am proud that my brood are a class on their own. I love you guys!  Thank you for being the world’s greatest kids!

    How cute the voices of the Goppets family! So warm, unassuming, honest and loving kind of voices which are music to the ears. And, your voice Mommy Jane is what I imagine it to be – so soft and yet so kikay!

    Happy Mother’s Day! God bless you on the most awesome thing you do!

        You are so real, Mommy Jane, even with your stature in life which endears you to your reader. It’s like reading your own personal diary without any pretensions just as one would write her diary in private.

        The first time I came across your blog was when Jin mentioned you in one of her blogs and I clicked the link. I didn’t know what the word LELS mean at that time so I had to google. Who would use such word, I thought to myself? My affection for you (for your blog and for your family) grows as I continue reading your blog until it now becomes a daily habit.
