Most of us can definitely relate that our mother’s scents will always be our most precious memories of them. Well, in my case, it was my Lola’s, who has been the mother of our family, even to all her grandchildren. Almost all of my cousins were “laki sa lola” just like me. So I dedicate this post to her. I grew up always looking forward to meal times because of the delicious aroma of her adobo and sinigang. Our Christmases were never the same when she was gone with the smell of her “ube halaya” which...

As far as I remember, there were fried rice, longganisa,...

Every summer vacation, if budget allows it, our family picks a hotel where we would want to spend a night and try the pool. We had stayed on several hotels already and from experience, we can amply say that Manila indeed have nice hotels and most of them are family friendly. Last Mother’s Day, it was quite a unique experience because for the first time, well here in the Philippines, we have stayed overnight in a hotel with my mom and dad in law. The Linden Suites sponsored an overnight stay for the heads of Mommy Bloggers Philippines...

More photos and experiences from our stay at The Linden Suites On our way to the pool at The Linden Suites. We were at the 23rd floor while the pool was on the 9th floor. What’s great at The Linden Suites is that elevator cards are restricted to your floor. You can’t go to the other floors where you don’t stay unless you request access from the lobby. This means the hotel is keen to the security of their guests.Loved the jacuzzi! Water here is much warmer than in the pool but its tolerable and has that soothing effect...

Are you giving your kids vitamin supplements? I do. I’ve been giving them since they were babies as recommended by their pediatrician and I have been doing this for both of my girls. I remember I used to follow the pedia’s advice right to the smallest details (brand, amount, time of day when I will give the vitamins). From experience, I am convinced that I need to give them supplements since I notice that they easily get sick (colds and coughs) when they don’t drink their vitamins. I know that being sickly can be avoided...

Now I know why Filipinos love Jollibee so much. It’s because Jolibee really knows what makes them happy. Kuhang-kuha ang kiliti ng mga Pinoy. You know how moms like me love surprises! Last Mother’s Day, Jollibee sent me a surprise present directly to The Linden Suites where my family and friends were checked in. It was a picnic basket with 2 buckets of our favorite Jollibee Chicken Joy, complete with the checkered table cloth, picnic talaga ang peg! The kids were jumping with joy because they love Jollibee Fried Chicken, plus...

A slice of my favorite chocolate cake will be enough to make my day even in this hot season. Imagine if I can have not only one slice, but an unlimited number of cake slices, in any flavor that I like, plus all the other goodie treats I dream to eat in one day. There’s one place in Fairview, Quezon City which makes all these imaginations a reality. Love Desserts! Love Desserts was one of our sponsors on our last Mommy Bloggers Philippines christmas party so I had a glimpse of their serving already. But still, I was surprised with...

Thank you Joy, my mommy-blogger friend who owns the beautiful blog Joybites.com, for nominating me for the “Give One, Get One” Blogger Award Contest. Joy is my idol when it comes to her figure. She doesn’t look like she has four kids already! She also lifts weights, cooks and bakes delicious recipes, take photos which are all magazine-worthy, and many more things that I can’t do. She inspires me as a mom, a blogger and a friend. To answer Joy’s question on what makes me a passionate blogger, I have actually three:1....
