Imagine, we only have a few weeks left and it will be Christmas Day. It’s that time of the year again when our skills and patience, not only in cooking, are tested, but also in keeping our kitchen organized and clutter-free. With a little bit of planning and a few kitchen tools and essentials, we can pull it through. I’ve done it for many years, lived without help since my daughters were born, prepared several dishes in time for Noche Buena, and still manage to have enough time to glam up and enjoy the night. How? Keep A List Allot...

Our family’s health is of the utmost importance for us moms but sometimes, because of lack of knowledge, we only make actions to treat diseases when we are already seeing the symptoms. When it comes to asthma, we should it take more seriously because the health damages can alter someone’s life forever. Good thing though because of scientific advancements, asthma can be managed well by most parents given that they have the right tool that is always available when needed. I was recently gifted with an Omron Compressor Nebulizer...

Have you experienced a Christmas or New Year’s Day when your dining table is cake-less? Because all cake shops have that long line outside and all of you happened to pre-order? I did experience that, and I promised myself that if ever it happens again, I’ll be ready. But baking, as I usually say, is easier said than done. Especially on holidays, when I can’t even find time to brush my hair. Since I’m a carrot cake lover ( I love it more than banana cakes ) I decided to try Magnolia Fast & Easy Bake Carrot Cake...

November is the month of Thank You’s as we thank McDonald’s with the numerous happy memories we had in their branches, for the great food especially French Fries and chicken (my daughter’s favorite fast food take-away). Sometimes I wish my kids are still toddlers so we can still have parties in McDo. Now, I just make do by buying Happy Meals from time to time. This month also, SM Supermalls partners with McDonald’s to bring the SM McDonald’s Caravan in select malls, and the National Thank You Day celebration. On the...

It’s the most wonderful time of the year but SM City North EDSA is making it even more merrier for all of us because its Christmas theme is a Disney theme! Mickey and Minnie and the rest of the Disney’s Tsum Tsum animated YouTube shorts are featured in this years 45-foot Christmas tree and we couldn’t help feeling awed with its size and grandeur.We were lucky to be able to witness the launch of Disney’s Tsum Tsum Christmas Tree last November 10 at SM City North EDSA The Block. I made sure to bring the girls with...

Robinsons Supermarket’s Route To Wellness year-long campaign in promoting health and wellness culminates in a grand family event which happened last November 4 at the Eastwood Mall Open Park in Libis, Quezon City. Despite some drizzle, shoppers eagerly visited and participated in booth activities. This month’s theme is all about sharing wellness that’s why it was named as the “Give” promo. Very appropriate for the upcoming season of giving, the Give Wellness event gave us the feels of the holidays through...

In our family, nothing can beat Filipino dishes. We can try any other type of food, indulge in them, but at the end of the day, we will still go for our native tastes. Last week, we were finally able to dine in for lunch at Sarsa Kitchen in UP Town Center. It’s usually jam-packed on Sundays but it was a Saturday and we were there a little bit earlier, 11AM. The place was peaceful that day, with only a family and a couple dining in and we easily saw our spot. The chairs and tables were not too close to each other and the seats are...
