Mommy-time Over Musicals and Milo Dinosaurs

Today is quite special for me. You see, my eldest daughter is performing in her school musical. Initially, I was going to go with my sister and brother in-law but as I was headed out the door, my 3 year old pleaded and begged to see her sister’s performance. I was hesitant because I wanted to enjoy the show as well as take photos and videos so I knew I would have my hands full. To add a preschooler to that mix seemed like a crazy idea. But of course the softie in me caved when I realized how sweet and supportive this young girl was being.

So I took her, firmly telling her that she had to be quiet at all times and not complain if she got bored or hungry. As the curtains closed and the applauses softened I beamed with pride at my one daughter who took the stage and at my other one who rested comfortably in my lap, having done exactly as she was told. For this, she deserved a treat so I was set to take her on a one on one date.

Ham & Cheese Toast (with ham and veggies removed)

Luncheon Meat Toast

She wanted a grilled cheese so I decided to take her to one of my favorite quick meal stops, toast box. The Singapore franchise has light snack options and great lunch choices. It is easy and more importantly so reasonable. I spent under P400 for us both. She got the ham and cheese toast (which I had served with the ham and veggies on the side because that is how she likes to eat it) and I had the luncheon meat toast. And of course, I could not take my little one on a toast box date and not share a Milo dinosaur. I love this concoction. It is so simple, regular iced Milo with water topped with a generous helping of Milo powder. A true cheap but oh so awesome thrill. It never fails to remind me of my childhood because I used to have Milo powder with powdered milk and sugar and eat the dry mix with a spoon.
