Can this heat ever be bearable? Even if we set our air-conditioners at home to full blast, there are days that these machines aren’t able to handle the heat. It’s so difficult to feel cool, isn’t it? With the daily grind at home and this feverish temperature, sometimes the only way to escape the burn is to go to the mall even for a few hours. But to make summer more interesting and a lot sweeter, our favorite dessert donut J.CO launched its new Affogato series.A traditional affogato is a scoop of ice cream drowned in...

I had the opportunity to visit and shop in Mommy Mundo’s ExpoMom 2017 in Glorietta and I encourage you to visit and look for your mommy essentials in this bazaar. Although this is more of a gathering mompreneurs of baby products, you can also find a lot of discounted items for moms who have older kids!I was able to shop for sweet seedless grapes from Australia, our favorite mosquito spray and a spoon and fork kit for my daughter. There are a lot more to choose from and it will be much better if you will come with your mommy friends...

Tickles had been our favorite stopping point in Trinoma. Whenever we go to this mall, we stop by in Tickles to check out their newest stuff on their shelves, because they are all so cute. My girls and I have fun touching and playing with their quirky items and sometimes, we buy gift items for my daughters’ friends at school. The good news is, they now opened their flagship store at SM North Edsa. We can now conveniently go to their branch where it’s nearer to my daughter’s school at SM North.I remember I’ve encountered...

I go frequently to Goldilocks branches, not only for the breads and cakes but also for their value meals. I like their pasta, Pinoy dishes such as kare-kare and bistek, and their halo-halo and coolers. So the first time their Gtizen My Wallet rewards card was released which I saw through my email, I made sure that I got one. The application was a bit tedious then because you have to fill up an actual bank (RCBC) application form and have an accumulated amount in your receipts before you can get one. But this time, you can get a Goldilocks...

Online shopping can easily burn your wallet despite strict budgeting, but that will not happen if you know where to find the best deals online, and more than that, if you know how to earn your cash back. Last week, I was with my co-mommy bloggers from Mommy Bloggers Philippines, and we had an after-lunch affair with the team behind ShopBack. It was a pre-Mother’s Day treat to us which was touching for me because I saw how they prepared this short-but-sweet event. It was held at Contis’ function room in Greenbelt, the food was...

I have a long-time indulgence and that is pampering one of the most important parts of my body : my hands. With these pair of small but sturdy hands, I nurture my family and I accomplish most of my goals through the works that I do through them. And so my hands are worthy of my utmost care and attention that’s why most of my most treasured skin care products are hand creams. In this part of my blog, I wish to share this simple passion. And if you are lucky, I’ll send you the hand cream I’ve just reviewed. Let’s...

You’ll easily find The Malayan Plaza in Ortigas because it’s one of the tallest buildings in the area. And because there were lots of earthquake episodes happening lately, I made sure to request a room in the lower level of the building. Fortunately, we were blessed to get a room on the 6th floor. We got a 48 sq meter room for P3,400 a night. I’ve read quite a few not-so-good reviews but we still decided to give it a try. Reviews can be fairly subjective and that’s why it’s a good thing that you read the latest...

A few months ago, my husband had to rush me to a hospital in the middle of the night because of shortness of breath. I was having allergy bouts but I ignored it since I thought I was just having ordinary cough and throat irritation. But that particular night, I found myself vomiting because my throat was too irritated and when I lied down to go to sleep, I woke up and found it very hard to breathe. My husband and I went to Commonwealth Hospital and Medical Center ER and for 2 to 3 hours, I was checked and given medication to ease out my...
