School days for me are so hectic because I’m without a helper for almost three years now. Friends in the blogging industry who are aware of this know that I seldom attend events when school opens because I’m one busy and tired momma. But for a dear friend, I’ll definitely make an exception. So when Joy Mendiola invited me to attend The Joy of Art Maki by Jannet and Bubble Man event, an event she herself organized, I said yes without hesitation. I personally had to greet Joy on her birthday and hand her my gift, albeit without a wrapper. See how busy I am? Lol! I’m really glad I was there because I got to do something that I didn’t think I could do, make my very first rice sushi. I also got to take home a basketful of a promising household product (Bubble Man Dishwashing Liquid) that moms like me will find a practical use for in our homes.

About Joy

Art Maki by Jannet Salazar

First of all, I eat sushi and maki rolls, but I have no idea how to make them. That dilemma was solved when Ms. Jannet Salazar (Instagram: @jannet65) taught our small group how to create rice sushi.

Because I needed to get home before my son arrived from school, I had to leave the event ahead of time, so I missed enjoying the food and chit-chat with the rest of the group, but I still got to enjoy my Loco Moco from Tokyo Café. It was good!

Thanks for inviting us to this event, Joy! Until the next!

  1. Aww! too bad this event conflicted with my other schedule. I like Joy, she’s like a ray of sunshine with all her positive aura! hope to see her again soon!

  2. I have most of the ingredients and tools for making maki, but I haven’t tried it yet. I feel I need an undisturbed time to make it. haha..No distractions while making it. =) The maki designs look really cute. =)

  3. I don’t know if I would love Maki, I’m not so much into Japanese food, the last time I tried, I didn’t like the black (I don’t even know what it’s called). This looks like a really nice event. And the bubble man dwashing liquid of course, I’d love to try that out. 🙂

  4. Sounds like a fun event. I’d love to learn how to make maki. We also just started using Bubble Man here at home. Lovin’ it so far. 🙂

  5. The family loves maki and my father-in-law always remind me to take a course on how to make maki. He wanted us to have a maki business kasi. Sana may next time!
