Buko Pandan with Nata de Coco Recipe

Buko Pandan is one of my family's all time favourite dessert.  Sino nga ba ang ayaw ng Buko Pandan. Ito yung lagi namin inoorder sa restaurant for dessert. Simula nung nag lockdown at hindi kami makalabas ng buong pamilya, pinag-aralan ko nalang gawin yung mga paboritong pagkain ng mga bata lalo na ang dessert katulad nitong Buko Pandan. Akala ko noong una, mahirap gawin pero hindi pala. Ilang ingredients lang ang kailangan at hindi complicated ang procedure.  Mas naging Creamy Sarap pa ang Special Buko Pandan ko dahil ginamitan ko Ito ng Jolly Cow Condensada. Swak din Ito sa budget nating mga nanay dahil Ito ay affordable.  Bukod sa Creamy Sarap na dessert maganda din itong gawin negosyo.  Buko Pandan Jelly with Nata de Coco  Ingredients 1 can Jolly Cow Condensada 390g 1 bottle Nata de Coco 1 250ml All purpose cream 3 cups kinayod na buko 1 cup fresh buko juice For the Gelatin 1 pack Buko pandan flavored Gulaman 5 cups fresh buko juice 1/2 cup white sugar 2 Pandan leaves Instruct

  As a mother, nothing is more important than the safety and well-being of our family. During the time of Enhanced Community Quarantine ( ECQ ) , aside from ensuring the safety of my family and loved ones, the entire duration of lockdown made me realize a lot of things that I should be thankful for. Before the pandemic started, we all wished for days where we can only stay at home, relax, do nothing, or have time to spend with your family.

Everyone was advised to stay at home, and jobs were halted for more than two months and adjust to a new normal to prevent the virus from spreading.  For the entire duration of the lockdown, I was thankful enough to be with my husband and daughter, for quite some time that we were not able to have enough time to bond due to work and other errands, the quarantine has been the perfect opportunity for my husband and me to spend quality time with our daughter and for us

5 Tips From Tang to Get Your Kids Ready for Distance Learning

Education is the greatest gift you can give your child. As parents, we prioritize the safety of our children above all, but at the same time, we also want to make sure that they are prepared for their future by providing them with proper education despite this pandemic. While ensuring the safety of our kids and preparing them for the new normal for learning, a lot of parents and kids are caught up in the whirlwind by trying to cope up with the distance learning and setting up all the needed apps or software to be prepared for an online class, which all of us parents can relate since we have been used to dropping our kids at school and picking them up once school ends.

Working with catsup Catsup was not the first medium he had used to create art, but
