How is your Valentine’s Day so far? Me, it started sweet, with me waking up with a huge Toblerone on my working table and a sweet note from my Valentino. I did not buy anything for him but I thought cooking breakfast made with some more effort and then some sweet whisper of a night to look forward to, will be irresistible for him. I made some heart shaped pancakes and a heart shaped egg using an P88 peso heartshaped pan from Japan Homes. Cooking pancakes is a no-brainer but cooking them in a tiny sheet-thin pan needs some wit. I...

Joining the Daloy Dunong Plant Tour by Maynilad was quite an eye-opener for me. If I will be asked, I think every customer of Maynilad should be able to request a tour like the one we had, not only to appreciate Maynilad’s service but also to increase awareness on how we can all help protect our water supply and resources. Let me tell you a quick recap of how our Daloy Dunong Tour went on and I hope that at the end of the post, you’ll also have the same realizations I had.

It’s seldom that you receive a gift like this. Something which can make you swoon because you feel special upon receiving it. I wish every deserving woman in the world can get a box like this. Why? Because being a woman is not easy. In this world when there are a thousand kind of standards to meet, we can hardly keep up even with just a dozen.But who said we even have to follow standards, right? It’s exactly what Dove’s #RealBeauty Is Universal is all about. That we should celebrate our uniqueness, our own beauty, and...

I have a can of Jolly fruit cocktail left from last Christmas and so I thought to try this recipe. I had to make it with chocolate graham crackers to make it more appealing to my kids, who won’t refuse anything chocolate. This will be win win for all of us (kids and adults) because it has fruits, it’s a cold dessert, and it’s chocolatey.My Masflex Saucepan – which I mainly used for this recipe. It’s a stainless steel premium saucepan with lid which is safe to use, durable and will never rust. For Masflex...

Itchy scalp and dandruff had been our ongoing problem at home. My husband fortunately has a healthy scalp and he has less hair (semi-kalbo). But me, I have long hair which is not thick naman but I have this hormone issues when my scalp gets too dry due to stress or the weather. My eldest daughter has a very thick hair and she sweats a lot. Most of the times, I see her scratching her head and told her to make sure that she’s washing her hair and scalp properly. Sometimes, the dandruff will go away, sometimes our scalps are itchy and...

When my daughters were toddlers and before they reach age seven, playing kiddie games with them was pretty regular for us. We have kiddie parties at home, lots of singing, dancing and laughing when we are together. Even when we are with our in-laws, we all spend time listening to our little kids’ babbles and giggles. Oh how time flies so fast, and so we all say. Now, my two girls are grown up and some things have changed. Aside from the physical changes, they of course, do not want to play the same games as before. They also do not...

It’s not about who we sleep at night but who we wake up with in the morning. Yes, I agree to that. I remember that I only actually started sleeping in bed with my husband when my youngest child turned 5, actually when she turned 10, because in the years in between, I alternately sleep in my daughter’s bedroom and the master’s bedroom. And when she turned 10, my daughter had already advanced to a more matured stage when all she wants in her room are her K-POP posters. Hayyy. But you know what, my husband’s relationship...

If I can turn back time, when I was pregnant with my first child, I wish I had just been pregnant in this decade. My pregnancy with my eldest was like groping in the dark, and my husband and I had just relied on my ob-gyne and pediatrician. We made sure we listen carefully with what they say and their words are like words of God for us. We had to follow all theĀ  diet, drinks and vitamins prescribed to me and my baby. In short, we were dependent and if not with regular check ups, we wouldn’t have a successful pregnancy. I am not...
