I don’t consider myself as a devout Catholic nor do I wish to promote any religious sect. But why did I bring up this topic on my blog? First, these are the perfect days to reflect. Second, because I thought, why not? I was very hesitant before to write anything about religious topics because I don’t want to seem self-righteous and know-it-all, especially when it comes to being upright and Godly. I have made many bad decisions in my past, is still committing sins through my thoughts and so I know I am far from being upright...

I booked a room in Hotel 101 for the first time using Agoda and despite the fact that I am in a tight budget because enrollment will only be two months away, I still pushed through. This would be a triple celebration for us : it was our wedding anniversary, the kids were both honor students in their schools, and it was my youngest’s birthday month.  For P3,004.25, I got a standard room with 1 Queen and 1 single bed.It was our first time in this hotel and I wanted to try it because I was trying to find an affordable hotel where...

Dishwashing is one of the most simple house chores which teens should be able to learn as early as they can. The reason is simple and it is because all of us will need to do it, at one point or another. Sometimes, I’m guilty of just letting them skip or not do the washing because they are studying or they had so many assignments to do. It’s actually wrong because when we do that, we let them think that they earn this kind of “entitlement” because they are studying their lessons. They need to understand that “house...

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...
