I’ve always been enamored with beautiful women and I enjoy watching beauty contests, especially the question and answer portions. It’s not because I enjoy the after-program articles where Filipinos enjoy mocking the contestants because of their wrong answers and poor grammar. It’s because I envy these women who have the guts to go on stage, show their beauty and answer difficult questions. I imagine how pressured they are on stage, how painful their faces are because of continuous smiling, and how they pray that the contest...

As a parent, my husband and I know that we have a big part in building our daughter’s self-confidence. We buy her favorite books, we enroll her to a music school because she loves music, and we also try to let her enjoy being with her friends. But as we all know it, since we’ve already passed through these stages, physical appearance is also a big factor for a daughter of her age (she’s turning 11). Just in time with this post, Buzz Feed posted an amusing article about how important teeth is when it comes to looking...

As parents, we are our children’s number one fan. And we all have our own ways of showing them how much we support them. As for our small family, we have our own what I call Wall of Fame where we collect my daughters’ medals. My husband and I know that whenever the kids see their achievements at the wall, they will appreciate what they’ve done in...

It has been a blessed first quarter for me. We have something to eat whenever we wanted to eat, I feel that my husband loves me more than ever, my daughters got their goals in school, and the list goes on but still, I feel that something is missing. And this morning, when I woke up, I prayed to God for an inspiration and to guide me again where the path of happiness...

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...
