Death is a reality in life we can never escape. As many of us have always been saying, “Una-una” lang yan (it’s a matter of time). For everyone who have lost a loved one, I think even these thoughts can’t ease the pain. It’s like there’s a hole inside of you which can never be healed once the person passed away. You will always be helpless and wanting, wanting that person will be back again. This is my Lola adelina, the noblest mother I knew. It was unfortunate for me when we lost her just after I got...

When it comes to dengue protection, I consider me and my husband as OCs (obsessive-compulsives) and we are not ashamed of it. You can never be sure with dengue and with the rate of increase of dengue victims no matter what the weather is, we all have reasons to be fearful and protective. Honestly, when you open our medicine cabinet, you will see all sorts of brand of mosquito repellents (lotion/spray/stick on). I also grab mosquito repellent samples when I see them being given away in malls. As much as possible, we wear pants and clothes...

Children are confident to smile when they don’t have tooth decay If it’s sugar-free, yes. And it’s a happy fact for me because we are chewing gum lovers. My daughters have misaligned teeth that’s why my eldest is wearing braces. But both of my kids do not have tooth decay. And I realized maybe because I have this habit of always bringing gum packs in my bag. Recently Xylitol invited us for an intimate meet-up of moms like me. And that was when I’ve learned all these dental benefits of sugar free chewing gums. To...

crack on the center left portion of my daughter’s myobrace On our 2nd visit to Green Apple Dental Clinic, we were glad to see the good dentist Dr. Urbi after a month from our first appointment with him.  So far, we didn’t really experience any problem with the Myobrace trainer except that it had some cracks on the lower center where the tongue touches it. It may possibly because she couldn’t help chewing and putting some pressure on it using her tongue when she is asleep. I was worried that it will have an effect on...

320 kcal Dinner : Summer Lasagna and Fresh Salad Dieting – one task that can be easy to say but so difficult to do. I know for sure that I am not overstating that because in my 10 years of being a mother, maintaining a fit body through proper diet has been one tough job not because I eat so much but mainly because I don’t watch what I eat. I don’t blame anyone or anything but I just to have acknowledge the fact that I need help when it comes to dieting. Maybe someone professional enough who can count the calories for...

Last month, I’ve posted how we learned about Dr. Urbi of MRC Clinics and the benefits of Myobrace versus the traditional dental brace. As I saw how many children were able to successfully have beautiful smiles despite of seemingly hopeless dental issues, I signed up my daughter for the program. Last Sunday was our scheduled first appointment. Prep time while...

After 2 years, we will be seeing Maristel with her perfect smile 🙂 As of her age, we want her to be able to smile with all the confidence in the world because she is special. As a parent, my husband and I know that we have a big part in building our daughter’s self-confidence. We buy her favorite books, we enroll her to a music school because she loves music, and we also try to let her enjoy being with her friends. But as we all know it, since we’ve already passed through these stages, physical appearance is also a big factor...

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...
