Organizing a party this year with 150 people was far from my plans. Since my family has enjoyed trick or treating every year, I thought it must be nice to celebrate Halloween this year with my co-mommy bloggers. After all, I haven’t met most of them personally. Plus, I was excited to see their little kids in costumes! And so, at the middle of September, I started asking the moms if they would like to have such a party. The moms responded positively and most of them became excited right that moment. I’ve set at least 30 votes...

Death is a reality in life we can never escape. As many of us have always been saying, “Una-una” lang yan (it’s a matter of time). For everyone who have lost a loved one, I think even these thoughts can’t ease the pain. It’s like there’s a hole inside of you which can never be healed once the person passed away. You will always be helpless and wanting, wanting that person will be back again. This is my Lola adelina, the noblest mother I knew. It was unfortunate for me when we lost her just after I got...

With so many things to do in a day, a mom like me usually multitasks. And what can be more helpful to us than one-stop shops, a place where you can purchase your needs in one drop. Wellworth is located within Fairview Terraces which is very accessible for those living in Quezon City and Novaliches area. It is the first branch of Wellworth Philippines built in the...

My daughter is already on her 4th month in the program and we are satisfied because as early as this, we are already seeing improvements on her teeth. We also haven’t heard from her any pain or discomfort on those four months. On our 3rd month, the Dr. Urbi installed 2 pink braces on my daughter’s front teeth. This is to close the gap between the teeth which is quite wide.┬áIt was my daughter’s first time to have braces. At first, she felt slight pain on her teeth but the pain ceased before the day ended. Check my daughter’s...

Today, I’d like to share with you two recipes which you would love to try for merienda. Carbonara Not so much was written about the origin of Carbonara dish except that we know that it is Italian. Despite little knowledge, carbonara is almost always one of the favorites of every women. Why? Because it’s so flexible you can just put anything on top of your pasta and you have your own version of this dish. Here’s a recipe recently shared to me by my friend from Jolly Foods and Fly Ace Corporation. JOLLY FETTUCCINE A LA...

I think the easiest recipe a Filipina mom can cook is adobo but for me, who doesn’t have the natural cooking skills, it took me a while before I was able to cook this traditional dish without batting an eyelash. For the Ajinomoto Cooking Challenge, even delayed it might be, I decided to post this hoping that it will help some mothers out there who still hasn’t found the right mixture for the simple pork adobo. The twist on my recipe is that I always put sitaw (stringbeans) on it, to serve as an extender and to add nutrition...

When it comes to dengue protection, I consider me and my husband as OCs (obsessive-compulsives) and we are not ashamed of it. You can never be sure with dengue and with the rate of increase of dengue victims no matter what the weather is, we all have reasons to be fearful and protective. Honestly, when you open our medicine cabinet, you will see all sorts of brand of mosquito repellents (lotion/spray/stick on). I also grab mosquito repellent samples when I see them being given away in malls. As much as possible, we wear pants and clothes...

I remember reading about Blogapalooza last year and I thought it must be cool to attend such event. And now, I’m one of the first 200 registrants! Ha!Why am I excited? 1. It’s my first Blogapalooza and it feels good to say that I am really into blogging! You know that feeling when you have so many things to say which you feel are quite useful and you don’t have so many people around you to listen to you all the time? Through blogging, I now have an avenue where I think some people benefit from what I know, even if I...
