Did you know that babies should depend on breast milk alone for the first 6 months of their lives (exclusive breastfeeding)? I didn’t know that and no one told me so 10 years ago. I breastfed my daughters when they were babies since it was a requirement at the hospital then for moms who are healthy enough to breastfeed after you give birth. I gave them my milk...

Last Sunday, I received this wonderful limited edition shopping cloth bag from Marks & Spencer. It is a special bag not only because it came from a world famous brand but also because it was a prize from Earth Hour.org. Seeing my bag always reminds me that I should do my part as one of the countless people who support this international organization whose main...

One of the nastiest illnesses kids can have is persistent cough. I know you’ll agree with me. When you hear them barking like puppies, you pray hard that the coughing stops not because you are irritated by how they sound but because you know that your child is suffering. Ang hirap kaya ng may ubo! What makes me suffer more is the fact that my kids get their...

Last week, my family and I had the opportunity to attend The Mind Museum’s 2nd Anniversary. Actually, it was only a few weeks ago when we had visited the museum. You can check out our first visit blog here so you will see how perfect that day was. That day really made our happiest family day list so we didn’t expect that there will be another visit which...

The Place at White SpaceFirst...

After all, we all experience science the moment we wake up till we go to bed, or even while we are still asleep. The younger your child is, the better to start with them about the wonders of science – “the study of physical and natural”...

It was an ordinary weekday but we felt the need to celebrate because final exams just ended. The end of another school year, a clean break for the four of us. We decided to try Manam in the nearby Fairview Terraces Mall and thanked ourselves that we had given in to our cravings. As I chatted with the waiter while waiting for our orders, I found out that “manam”...

As if the world stopped the moment my kids and I opened our tub of Nestle Belgian Chocolate Praline! We emptied the tub in a matter of minutes. The Belgian chocolate flavor just exploded in my mouth and the chocolate chips were crispy and then melts in my tongue. I’ve never experienced something like that in an ice cream beforeā™„...
