Most of us love to eat US potatoes, more than we know it. We Filipino moms won’t find our “afritada” and “menudo” complete without potatoes. And there are a hundred more dishes where we include potatoes in them. Of course, most kids we know crave for French fries! Luckily for us, these humble potatoes are considered “wonder foods”. Let me tell you some of the most important reasons why.Packed with Vitamin C, Vitamin B6, Iron, and PotassiumUS potatoes contain more vitamin C than tomatoes or sweet potatoes. Vitamin C helps...

Robinsons Supermarket continues in its aim to make all Filipinos fit and healthy as it launched its promos a week in advance in time for the National Wellness Month which is the month of July. My daughter and I were so delighted to participate in their kick-off event, the Wellness Festival, which was held at Eastwood Central Plaza – Citywalk last June 23. It was a free event open to the public and there were several stations where visitors were encouraged to see and try the different products by Robinsons Supermarket’s wellness...

Cleaning the refrigerator is as important as cleaning the rest of the appliances at home. Actually, it should be more often be cleaned than any other appliance. Why? Because it’s the most used appliance at home, it runs 24 hours a day, and most of us can’t live without it. It’s too important for us that it’s worth the attention. How often should refrigerators be cleaned? At least once every 3 months (the laziest you can do), refrigerators should be completely cleaned and organized. But the handle should always be...

The first nighttime toothpaste brand Dentiste has opened its online store http://dentistetoothpaste.com/ and it’s wonderful that we can now easily purchase our Dentiste toothpastes and travel kits. I’ve once blogged about how amazing Dentiste is in making couples much closer together as they wake up together with fresh morning breath.I like Dentiste toothpaste and other dental products such as gargle and breath spray because they don’t sting that much and their products do work. Even my tweens use Dentiste and carry...

This dessert has been a long-time family favorite (at least for me and my youngest daughter). I remember when I was just discovering internet and I needed work ( I just resigned from my office work then to take care of my kids), I actually made leche flan  in different flavors and sold them in ebay. Facebook is not that popular then. I made the classic vanilla, chocolate and strawberry flavored leche flan. I stopped because the commute to deliver was tiresome although I earned at least a bit. So I tried making leche flan again and I thought...

This week, I had the opportunity to go with a group of mommy bloggers in the opening of Dr. Jesus Delgado Memorial Hospital’s First Time Mom Unit to the public. The happiness in the hospital was very obvious, with pink and white balloons everywhere, historical photos of the hospital, and the laughter of some of the doctors filling the lobby. Everyone was excited with the First Time Mom Unit, a small but cute, enclosed area inside DJDMH specially designed to assist soon-to-be first time moms. It will be more than a decade (I hope)...

I must admit that our government agencies might still be turtle-like when it comes to digital progress, but at least now, I am really seeing progress. I’ve blogged about the efficient service of SSS recently, the SSS online system and the SSS Loan Restructuring Program, and I’m just happy to share that I found out that PhilHealth has a working website already. I’ve seen their website long before but it was not functional and they still don’t have an online member inquiry. I believe it’s very important that...
