I’d just like to share an experience of my father with a brother of mine just recently. I wasn’t aware of the danger of drinking generic Mefenamic Acids without talking to a doctor first. I’ve always popped a tablet or capsule of this pain killer whenever I have migraine. It’s because it was effective for me and alleviates my pain in an instant.The problem is that you must not just take one in if you are still not sure if you have allergies. It was that night when my brother complained of tooth ache. He was in...

How do you like your dishwashing liquid? With so many brands out there, how do you pick the ones which will be included in your grocery list? Me, I have a check list: 1. It must produce a lot of bubbles or concentrated. The more bubbles, the more it can clean. It also means that I should be able to wash many dishes by using only a small portion. 3. It should be able to remove grease and dried out food particles easily. The hardest to remove plates and utensils are the food particles which were left to dry. You need to soak them first to...

Having a handy alcohol is always a must for me. I am not the paranoid type when it comes to cleaning and germs but I am aware that keeping our hands sanitized is one way for our family to avoid being sick. If you will look into this health source, it says that aside from hand washing, hand sanitizing through alcohol can greatly reduce risks of infections. A Handy Alcohol To Quickly Sanitize Our Hands Working at home in front of the computer for almost more than 10 hours daily doesn’t allow me to wash my hands often. My hands are...

When I think of my kids school snack, the first food ideas which will come to my mind will be hotdog and cheese. But recently, they became fond of eating shredded corn. You know those cheese corn you can buy when you watch movies in the cinema? We love buying those corn with butter and cheese. The kids also like to eat popcorn, corn muffins and sometimes corn chips. Corn is good for our health so I just indulge them with all these. Corn is sometimes being called “the healthiest food” in the world. It contains a good amount...

The event I attended tagged as Cebuana Lhuillier’s #NationalPilipinoProtektadoDay held at the posh Fairmont Hotel in Makati made me realize how important having even the least insurance for your family’s protection as much as possible. No one can be a hundred percent certain of their financial status all the time. Even if you think you have saved enough, sometimes situations can just be too unexpected and many people had been left with nothing.

It’s heartbreaking to know that despite the struggle of many Filipino parents to provide for their families, there is still almost 4-million Filipino children who are classified as out-of-school youth. Majority of us can feel how maintaining a decent financial status these days is getting more and more difficult. In my daughter’s private school alone, many of her classmates have opted to choose to go to public schools because of the steep tuition fee. And I am not putting public schools in a negative light in here, not that...

We can never underestimate dish washing, right? After all, our health also depends in how clean our plates, glasses and utensils at home. But cleaning our dishes doesn’t mean getting rid of the food remains only but also making sure that there were no soap left on our plates after we wash them.  We always want to be sure that our kids do not take in harmful chemicals when using the plates and utensils. At the same time, we also want to be sure that all the bacteria are killed once we wash our dishes.Recently, I was introduced...

It was an ideal day for my girls and I to have my husband join us for the first time in a family baking workshop. As we girls are fond of cooking at home, Daddy is always our happy eater, the one who taste tests when we try a new recipe. So when I received an invitation from The Maya Kitchen for their monthly family baking workshop, I immediately accepted it. Finding TMK (The Maya Kitchen) is easy. We decided to commute and try the P2P bus in Trinoma straight to Makati (Glorietta 5) instead of using the car. From Glorietta 5, we took a...
