If you are planning your holiday trips this December, don’t forget to visit The Mind Museum’s 5th traveling exhibition Science Circus: Step Right Up! which is supported in part by Mastercard, Limkaco Industries, Uratex, and Thompson Hardware and Lighting Center. The Science Circus: Step Right Up! showcases the amusing, the peculiar, and the extraordinary in our everyday experiences, in the form of interactive exhibits that deceive the senses and boggle the mind. While the nearly 250-year history of the circus abounds with awe-inspiring...

When I received an invitation to join the Contadina Supermarket Raid, I almost jumped with joy. Why? Because finally, I’ll get to know the brand which Nigella Lawson is endorsing. I’ve been watching Nigella ever since I became a full time work at home mom. She’s a gourmet and food writer and I am a total fan of hers. I could watch her forever, the Domestic Goddess, with her pretty face and I dig it whenever she sneaks in to munch on something from her refrigerator at the end of each of her program episodes. Finding out...

In this recipe, I’ve used Contadina Arrabiata Pasta Sauce as a marinate for my chicken wings. This is my entry for the recipe contest in the Contadina Supermarket Raid held in Robinsons Selection at Venice Piazza. I’ve decided to use this pasta sauce variant of Contadina because of its main ingredients which are Italian Tomatoes and Red Chili Peppers. Instead of using a typical marinate for chicken wings (such as soy sauce and calamansi), the Contadina Arrabiata sauce gave an Italian taste and a spicy kick to my chicken. The...

What is your favorite comfort food? A comfort food is a simple dish which you can cook quickly not only to satisfy a hungry stomach, but most importantly, to give “comfort” or pleasure to those who eat this dish. My comfort food is called “albondigas soup” and my family is my primary fan of this dish. It’s a clear soup with pork meatballs, carrots and misua (Chinese Vermicelli). It should be served hot and can be eaten with rice during lunch or dinner. It’s also our favorite soup dish for rainy and cold seasons.My albondigas...

I had been keeping my Gift Certificates to The Spa for a long time. I didn’t have an idea that my first visit at this place will be one of the best day-off experience for me ever! We’d planned for Joy’s birthday a month before. As the three of us are all very busy work at home moms, add it up that we are also active bloggers, all our meet-up schedules need to be carefully planned.  Joy treated us for a lunch buffet in Vikings, Louisa paid for our movies, and I used my gift cards to The Spa. Joy even had to work that...

Most of us moms already know that it’s necessary to take care of ourselves. We’ve been told to relax from time to time, to give time for ourselves, etcetera. But sometimes, no matter how we try to relax, there’s one thing which will always stress us. And that is when we think of our budget. How can a mom relax if she sees how the prices of basic needs keep on rising? That’s how it is, you know. Because moms will always prioritize her family over herself. For example, if you have a small baby, a mother will buy a...

Do you use apps? Sa dami ng apps available, I stopped using so many and retained only a few. Because like some of the books I own (the physical books) end up being dusty. I am always de-cluttering at home and that’s the same with my phone. Aside from the default apps, I only keep my social media apps, Waze, Uber/Grab, A PDF Reader, and this one, most recently, The Smart Mommy App. The Smart Mommy App is actually a very new app which I’ve learned from the developer herself LJ Reyes. Yes, the actress LJ Reyes. I met her just...

Do you know any students who have skills in animation? Aspiring student film animators now have the chance to showcase their creativity and film animation skills, and win up to P100,000 cash prize in the Chooey Wowow World Animated Short Film competition.

This will be part of Animahenasyon 2016 – an annual Filipino animation festival that will...
