One of the highlights of my previous year was definitely this one, the first blogger’s Christmas Party I’ve attended. It was Mommy Bloggers Philippines’ first Christmas party and after a month of preparation, thanks to my co-blogger’s support especially Louisa of ArtOfBeingAMom.com and Joy of JoyGurtiza.com, the event turned out to be a successful one. The Christmas Party was held last December 5, at Spaces by Babyland. It was on the 2nd floor of the store building, an intimate space where more than 30 moms gathered,...

I got to watch only one movie from MMFF this year (Vic Sotto’s My Big Bossing Adventures). We were supposed to watch Vice Ganda’s movie because we’ve watched Vice’s movies before. My cousin Iris told me that Vice’s Film Fest entry’s plot is not good but it’s hilarious so we planned to watch it on the first day of the year. But lo, there were only 2 seats left when we checked on Sureseats. We had to pick another movie because this will be our last chance to watch a movie together. There were 10...

This year’s Disney On Ice – Dare To Dream is a dream come true for me. I’ve always been a fan of Disney Princesses and I’ve always wished to see all of them skating. Rapunzel is my favorite princess too and whenever my daughters want to watch Tangled, I always willingly watch with them at home. Yesterday, Christmas Day, my husband indulged us to go to Disney On Ice at Smart Araneta Coliseum in Cubao despite the never-ending traffic. After a quick visit to my father’s house, we went to Cubao without having...

It was our first invite for a book launch and I was glad that it became an exciting and fruitful one not only for me but especially for my daughters.  Last November 30, Bianca Gonzales visited National Book Store inside Trinoma to introduce and sign copies of her book entitled Paano Ba’To?!. How To Survive Growing Up. Bianca was super early and she was already signing books when we came to the venue. Mind you, the call time was 2:00pm but when we came there by 2:05, she had already signed many of the books. I admit I underestimated...

Organizing a party this year with 150 people was far from my plans. Since my family has enjoyed trick or treating every year, I thought it must be nice to celebrate Halloween this year with my co-mommy bloggers. After all, I haven’t met most of them personally. Plus, I was excited to see their little kids in costumes! And so, at the middle of September, I started asking the moms if they would like to have such a party. The moms responded positively and most of them became excited right that moment. I’ve set at least 30 votes...

I remember reading about Blogapalooza last year and I thought it must be cool to attend such event. And now, I’m one of the first 200 registrants! Ha!Why am I excited? 1. It’s my first Blogapalooza and it feels good to say that I am really into blogging! You know that feeling when you have so many things to say which you feel are quite useful and you don’t have so many people around you to listen to you all the time? Through blogging, I now have an avenue where I think some people benefit from what I know, even if I...

I’ve always been enamored with beautiful women and I enjoy watching beauty contests, especially the question and answer portions. It’s not because I enjoy the after-program articles where Filipinos enjoy mocking the contestants because of their wrong answers and poor grammar. It’s because I envy these women who have the guts to go on stage, show their beauty and answer difficult questions. I imagine how pressured they are on stage, how painful their faces are because of continuous smiling, and how they pray that the contest...

Did you know that babies should depend on breast milk alone for the first 6 months of their lives (exclusive breastfeeding)? I didn’t know that and no one told me so 10 years ago. I breastfed my daughters when they were babies since it was a requirement at the hospital then for moms who are healthy enough to breastfeed after you give birth. I gave them my milk...
