Ginataang Mais (Rice and Corn with Coconut Milk) is a fave food in my country The Philippines. Ginataan (Coconut Milk) dishes are common and have lots of variation such as sweet and savory. This is a sweet coconut milk dish. In here we used rice with corn but you can also use red mongo beans (adzuki beans) and theres also Ginataang Sari Sari that has a lot of add-ons like banana, tapioca, yam and the sticky rice is in ball form. I know, too much info! This is a snack that my mother cooks for me. A favorite in our household. We usually add Jackfruit flesh in here to add to sweetness and smell. But again that's hard to find here.
I always wanted to do this dish but I don't know where to find glutinous rice. The main ingredient needed. I started doing Rice Pudding for my son and realized that its a bit the same. Not sticky enough but rice pudding rice has a good texture thick too. This is the first time for me to try it here and I am glad that it worked.
- 1 cup – coconut milk
- 1-1/2 cups – water (adjust to your preference)
- 1/2 cup – rice pudding rice
- 4 cobettes – corn, cut
- 1/2 cup – granulated sugar
- Combine coconut milk, corn and rice in a cooking pot then turn on the heat.
- Once the coconut milk is boiling, stir the mixture to prevent the glutinous rice from sticking. Set the heat to low and let the rice cook stirring continuously. Adding about 1/2 cup of water every time the liquid is reduced. Do so till the rice is cooked.
- Put-in the sugar and stir thoroughly. Cook for 2 more minutes.
- Serve and eat! Yummy!

We went camping again and on our way home we remembered that we wanted to go in here as its on the way and the weather is okay. Sunny bit not hot.
Upon entering we were welcome with clear blue, green water and ducks. There are also dogwalkers and like us people who just wants have some fresh air. There are also going to be an event in the afternoon so a lot of cars are passing us by as this is also a sailing club area.
My son is in awe of the clearness of the water as the beach near our house is a bit on the muddy side. He also enjoyed looking at the ducks and swan. Some even went near us probably thinking that we have some bread. We dont have any as this is an impromptu visit. Visiting this place made our day just better.

Let Kids Be Kids
Whats the Story
One of the thing that I am most thankful for always is the relationship of my son to his father. I never had this relationship and I am in awe of how my husband gives our son his attention. They are always happy to have each other and I am always happy to record these events.
Like when its too hot in the house and they did this in the terrace =)
They also share their passion for Lego.
And he doesn't want Daddy to go to his second job a lot of times! So he held him hostage with (what else?) Lego!
Our house is simple, we are always struggling financially but I am .. happy to say that its a happy home cuz of this 2 wacky boys in my life. All over my blog you can find photos, stories and scenes of how much fun these 2 always have. I am so proud of their father and son relationship and I could not ask for more.

Last Saturday was the longest day of the year. Longest for us too. So many things that are happening and we just attended as much as we can and still keep our sanity by going home every so often! What can I say life is grand =P
One of the activity that we did was to let my son bathe on the fountain near the beach. We usually do this often. It is our own paddling pool and its size is massive! He stayed here the longest time and he met so many kids that are bathing in there too. Dare I say I have found the fountain of youth!
After this of course we did so many more things. Like going back to this fountain for our night walk. It is amazing how quiet it is at night when few hours ago its bursting with laughter and squeaks and shrieks. Well fountains needs to rest too.
