Actually this is my typical Monday, where I'm juggling house hold chores and my blogging. I supposed to wake up as early as 5am, I set my cell phone alarm clock last night, but I was worn out yesterday and it’s impossible for me to get up early. I was up at 6:30 preparing breakfast of my two boys then went right away to my computer checking for some task. When the boys are gone, I do the laundry and some house cleaning, and baking goodies in the afternoon. I’m tired today; actually I woke up this morning feeling so tired. Hope tomorrow is a better day for me.

Generally called Suman, but in Visayas area they call it bud-bud. I have craving for this Filipino delicacy and I forgot how to make it. I asked couple friend online how they made this, based on what they told me, I come to my own measurements.
3 cups sweet rice
1 can coconut milk
1 tsp salt
1-1/2 cup sugar, add more sugar if you want it sweeter
ginger cut in stripes, just enough to have a gingery taste
Soak sweet rice for 12-18 hours or overnight, strain sweet rice. In a pot or rice cooker mix all ingredients except banana leaves. Cook sweet rice, when cook cool for 15 minutes the start wrapping sweet rice on banana leaves, cut banana leaves about 5x10 inch size, place 2 tbsp of cook sweet rice and start rolling it to form elongated round shape, wrap and fold the edges.
Place all wrap sweet rice in a big pot and pour water until all are covered with water, cook for 1 hour and done.
