As a mom, I’ve always wanted to be able to bake bread and cookies for my family. It warms my heart whenever I see them eat my finished products. But while baking by merely following recipes and watching tutorials worked for a time, I knew in my heart that if I wanted to be able to bake better cookies and bread and eventually be able to sell them if I want to, I really have to know the proper techniques in baking. PACE (Professional Academy for Culinary Education) is now opening their facility for students of Baking and Pastry Arts...

Because I am a work at home mom, it’s inevitable for me to want to dine out most of the time. It’s a welcome break for me from doing household chores, cooking and washing dishes. My husband and I also take advantage of eating out with the kids to get closer to them, talk to them about their interests while we are all in good mood and enjoying good food. And so we are all glad that numerous food parks are sprawling our subdivision’s vicinity. One of these is El Neo Garahe Food Park.We were at El Neo for the first time...

I had a salary loan decades ago when I was still employed in a telecoms company and up till now, I haven’t paid it fully. Somehow, no matter how I tried to pay it, excuses got it in the way. I also applied for a Loan Restructuring Program years ago and I only had P500 to pay monthly. I had P12,000 debt that time and I was given 2 years to pay. Unfortunately, I did not take it seriously and was only able to pay half of it and then stopped paying. After neglecting my dues for more than two years, as I was checking if my SSS voluntary...

Summer is the happiest season for our kids. They have all the time to sleep, play, and have fun with their friends and family. Unfortunately, our vacation season also falls in the hottest times of the year. It’s very easy to be dehydrated without us noticing it. Germs and bacteria are also more proactive during hot and humid season. If you will notice, we are more prone to diarrhea during summer. So how do we protect, fortify and keep our kids hydrated during summer? My tip is, just don’t forget these three things. If possible,...

I’ve known the power of coconut oil since I was young. It was kind of a legacy of my Lola Adelina who taught me how to use extracted coconut oil on my hair to make my scalp healthy and my hair shiny. I still do that once in a while and I am also trying to teach the same to my daughters who have thick hair. But I found out that coconut extract is not only for hair. It’s also good for the skin. And I’ve seen it in action in Cocoline Naturals Body Wash, Body Lotion and Soap.Cocoline Naturals Body Wash – It’s...

“Is my blood healthy or not?” Have you tried asking this to yourself at least once? Usually, people are more concerned about high blood pressure rather than the checking about the state of their blood’s health. But is it really that negligible? When I attended Sangobion’s Sulong Dugong Pinoy campaign media launch, I found out that it’s...

Have you tried going to a concert with your teens? For the first time, I did. And I’m glad it became a nice experience for the three of us. If you are familiar with K-POP, you must know this young boy band EXO and recently, they had a concert here in Manila at The Araneta Center. My kids are avid fans of this group and they were just excited to see their “bias” (the term they use for their favorite band member or idol) in person. I knew it was coming, paying for concert tickets, because they had been fans of other boy...
