Online shopping can easily burn your wallet despite strict budgeting, but that will not happen if you know where to find the best deals online, and more than that, if you know how to earn your cash back. Last week, I was with my co-mommy bloggers from Mommy Bloggers Philippines, and we had an after-lunch affair with the team behind ShopBack. It was a pre-Mother’s Day treat to us which was touching for me because I saw how they prepared this short-but-sweet event. It was held at Contis’ function room in Greenbelt, the food was...

I have a long-time indulgence and that is pampering one of the most important parts of my body : my hands. With these pair of small but sturdy hands, I nurture my family and I accomplish most of my goals through the works that I do through them. And so my hands are worthy of my utmost care and attention that’s why most of my most treasured skin care products are hand creams. In this part of my blog, I wish to share this simple passion. And if you are lucky, I’ll send you the hand cream I’ve just reviewed. Let’s...

You’ll easily find The Malayan Plaza in Ortigas because it’s one of the tallest buildings in the area. And because there were lots of earthquake episodes happening lately, I made sure to request a room in the lower level of the building. Fortunately, we were blessed to get a room on the 6th floor. We got a 48 sq meter room for P3,400 a night. I’ve read quite a few not-so-good reviews but we still decided to give it a try. Reviews can be fairly subjective and that’s why it’s a good thing that you read the latest...

A few months ago, my husband had to rush me to a hospital in the middle of the night because of shortness of breath. I was having allergy bouts but I ignored it since I thought I was just having ordinary cough and throat irritation. But that particular night, I found myself vomiting because my throat was too irritated and when I lied down to go to sleep, I woke up and found it very hard to breathe. My husband and I went to Commonwealth Hospital and Medical Center ER and for 2 to 3 hours, I was checked and given medication to ease out my...

After a week or so abstaining from meat, I’ve finally had the chance to cook some of the pork sausages I got from TFH Meat. I know we were in for a nice, meaty treat when I got my samples days ago because the packaging was quite neat. For me, the packaging says a lot about the products inside them. Most often than not, when brands effort so much in how they wrap and present their products, especially when these are food items, the more they will make the products inside them very much worth it.TFH Meat pork sausages and corned...

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...
