AJI-GINISA 'S NEW ENDORSER IS MARIAN RIVERA

In this modern times, a strong willed woman is now called the modern woman as she juggles so many things in her life. From managing home, to taking care of kids, to managing the family's finances you can see how a momma' wears so many hats and still ends up accomplished in everything she does. 


Marian Rivera, a well known actress here in the Philippines has done several roles in the showbiz industry — movies, teleserye and a lot of endorsements. Early this month, I have recently seen her new TVC for Aji-Ginisa Flavor Seasoning Mix where her love for cooking was highlighted. Honestly, I didn't expect that she's got some culinary skills. Basing on impressions, she's not the type who would allot some of her time in the Kitchen especially with her busy schedule. Now I'm super Jealous!!!

SIGSAGA YAKINIKU BUFFET REVIEW


On my Official Facebook page, I started my question with #SaanAabot ang 299 pesos mo??? In these times where our money has pakunti na ng pakunti ng value, hanggang saan na nga lang ba aabot ang 299 Pesos natin?

Let's all face it —Ang hirap kumita ng pera pero ang bilis lang nya gastusin. Ang hirap mabuhay noh? kaya nga we really need to learn how to be matipid. We have to be resourceful and make sure that lahat ng pinag hihirapan natin eh super worth it.

Pero parang ang hirap magtipid if mahilig ka mag explore sa pagkain. Pinaganda ko pa ba kung execution ko? haha! Sige, straight forward na nga....

Para sa mga mahilig kumain, here's sharing you something which I recently discovered —A gem in the heart of Las Pinas City, THE SIGSAGA YAKINIKU BUFFET!

GARDENIA POCKET SANDWICH, AN ANGEL SENT IN THE LIVES OF MOMS



Since sunday night last week, I started seeing comments of moms from my facebook feed about how they are preparing for the School Year 2017. Some said "hay,umpisa na naman ng maagang gising" , another one said "ma-cha-challenge na naman ang creativity skills ko for my son's baon" and another one said "kaya ko ito, pagsubok lang ito, ravann fellow mommies! " — ang kukulit these moms! hahaha!

But you know what, no matter how many times we moms whine — we all know that we would never ever compromise anything for our family and children. We would make everything and anything mapagsilbihan lang our family. Buti na lang, Tammy's school has not started yet. And I am so thankful that it will still not start anytime this month kaya I can still wake up late at pwede pang magpabanjing-banjing ... (harharhar!, oo dear moms, nang-iinggit ako) 😆!

HEAD OF THE FAMILY: NOT JUST A PROVIDER BUT A FATHER

Fathers are said to be the pillars of our homes. They toil sun up to sun down to give our needs and desires. Imagine working in a world where time seems to just past by and where almost everything changes instantly. Think of having to keep up with an environment where it costs a lot to stop or even slow down for a while. Sound taxing, right? What more of prioritizing the welfare of everybody in the household on top of it all. 

But every head of the family doesn’t mind about it.  Some of them even go abroad with tears in their eyes because they will be physically separated from their families. However, there is a certain joy in their hearts knowing that they will be able to provide for their loved ones back home.

DADS NEED PAMPERING TOO




Most often than not, the main man in our lives — may it be our husband, our papa, tatay, itay, dad, papu, daddy or whatever we want to call them are so focused on their work that they sleep less and push their bodies beyond their points of endurance. Life can be really hectic and the daily grind can easily take a toll on the hardworking fathers of each family. Having to spend those long hours at work, sacrifice spending for their own hobbies, and generally put up with toughest conditions just to bring food to the table and send their kids to school, are just some of the factors that drive most fathers to give his family the best future he could provide.

Allergens are ubiquitous and may be found in various places. If you did hit the beach with your friends recently, there’s a chance that some of those who went to the beach had itchy hives or in some cases some of you got allergic to the burning heat of the sun or some types of seafood. This rainy season, you might find yourself incessantly sneezing due to the allergens around.

REVIEW: PALMOLIVE NATURALS WHITE + MILK SOAP AND BODY WASH



Hello guys, I have been MIA here in the blog since first day of June. Actually, this is just the second time that I sat down over my lappy after the traumatic experience that we've had during the recent Resorts World Manila incident.  Yes guys, me and my family were there at the vicinity when it happened so we were really in a state of shock. But we are okay!— We were able to evacuate after that chaotic and traumatic experience. Thank God!! So for now, I told myself that no more traumatic stories na since me and my family need to move forward.

Anyways, you all know how me and my family loves to go on staycations. Kasabay ng staycations are my constant love for the fabulous bathrooms and bathtubs in hotel rooms and suites. And this only means one thing— I shower all the time and yes, minsan more than 3 times pa in a day and I admit that I have a serious addiction to bath products.

CARL SCHMIDT SOHN : THE RIGHT INVESTMENT FOR YOUR KITCHEN NEEDS



Choosing the right kitchen tools may be daunting nowadays with so many brands that are currently available in the market. Fret not! Carl Schmidt Sohn products are now available in the Philippines! 

Are you one of those who are tired of buying kitchen knives and cookware that does not last long? If you think you are saving money by buying inexpensive but low grade kitchen tools then think again. Low-priced alternatives will cost you more as these need to be replaced after only being used for a little time. It’s time to invest in the right kitchen tools!

FROM GRIT TO GREAT: #LIVEBRIGHTER


Last week, I attended an inspiring talk called #LiveBrighter by Sun Life Financial. That was my first time to attend a session among the many talks that Sun Life hosted. I was eager to attend this one because one of the speakers was Apprentice Asia winner, Jonathan Yabut. I've watched a few of the episodes of the Apprentice Asia where he was doing the tasks that was given to him — and I am inspired on his attitude. Imagine, I was just able to watch just a few episodes and I admire him already. Paano pa if I've watched the complete season. A smart and driven man as he was in the show, there, at the event, he was so confident standing and talking live —giving us some dose of boost on becoming successful. Na-star-struck ako, sobra! The man sure knows how to motivate a crowd.

SALU LAUNCHES LUTO NI NANAY: A NEW CULINARY EXPERIENCE + REVIEW


We all know it, last Sunday, May 14 was Mother's day. It was also the birthday of Tammy so we kinda' have a different celebration for lunch and dinner that day. It was extra special to me because as I've shared in my blog last Sunday, I officially became a Mom on Mother's day. 💗You may view the whole post here in case you missed it.

Speaking of becoming a Mom, when we think of our Moms, diba one of the things that pop up our mind are the best recipes that she prepares on our table. I don't know why, but probably because of the instinct of our mothers who tend to be naturally caring. Diba they would always make sure that she feeds and give out the best for her family. Sabi nga nila, wala ng tatalo pa because our Mother's are the best kaya naman her cooking is the best din.

VEGANISM HAS LANDED MARRIOTT MANILA



I have always been eating pork, meat and anything that you could think of that are unhealthy. I tried to eliminate rice as a form of a sacrifice last holy week but I know you bet on it. You are right, nagbalik-loob ako with rice last Easter Sunday. 

What about you guys? Have you ever thought on changing your diet in your aim to being healthy? I have thought of being a Vegan once, but I guess it would entail a lot of discipline especially in my case where I am not that expert in preparing food on my table. 😑

How about a thought of shifting to vegan lifestyle? Go ahead, and try it out. Actually, last week, I was able to talk to a Vegan where she shared how she prepares her food. And honestly, I would say, it isn't complicated after all. I've met her at Marriott Hotel Manila during the launch of their amazing Vegan menus. Yes guys, Veganism has landed at Marriott Hotel Manila!

THE PERFECT MOTHER'S DAY GIFT : THE GIFT OF HAPPIER LIFE

THE GIFT OF HEALTHY CROWNING GLORY FOR THE QUEEN IN OUR LIVES THIS MOTHER'S DAY


There may be opposing beliefs whether that greater maternal instinct is biologically predetermined or socially imposed, but everyone would agree that a mother is hardwired to love and care about the whole family, especially the children, all the time. For better or worse, it’s always the welfare of everyone at home on top of her priority.

A RADIANT MOTHER'S DAY WITH REVLITE FROM SVELTI


Mothers love cannot be measured nor be even paid with a specific amount of money. They give care and attention to every family member including the spouse, children, sometimes even parents, and other extended members of the clan. At the same time, there are some mothers who also work to help put food on the table or simply just to make ends meet. 


Working moms or stay at home moms tends to have the never ending house responsibilities regardless of what they do. No matter how tough their day went through, they still are expected to help her kids with their homework or make sure they are well taken cared of and the husband, too, needs her support and affection.

MAKE MOTHER'S DAY UNDENIABLY UNFORGETTABLE



Mothers deserve only the best. For their hard work and dedication in caring for their loved ones, we need to do our part to make them happy. That’s why when Mother’s Day comes around, the one holiday in the year where we get to honor moms around the world, we should all go the distance and make that special day unforgettable. Here’s some great ways to make that happen.

TAMMY GOES TO KIDS FAIR 2017


Before we left for our most awaited holiday, Tammy and I attended the Kids Fair 2017: “Bright! Right From The Start” which happened last April 21 - 23, 2017 (Friday to Sunday) from 10:00 AM to 7:00 PM at Megatrade Hall 1, SM Megamall, Mandaluyong City.

We went there on its second day — it was in the afternoon of Saturday so traffic was a bit bearable pa. As soon as we entered, Tammy was already excited since I already told her the activities that she could expect in the fair.

The first ever KIDS FAIR 2017: “Bright! Right From The Start” is an event that sets an environment of learning, discovery, and fun for kids with various activities that could help them improve their creative and thinking skills.

MIDEA GAS RANGES: WITHSTANDING THE TEST OF FILIPINO-STYLE COOKING


A lot of kitchen appliances get battered every time there is a big feast coming up, especially the gas stoves and ranges, because they catch all the mess from pots dripping with sauces that usually get caked on the surfaces. This could rust the body or some other parts of the stove and eventually affect its performance and eventually cause it to become unusable.

I could still even fondly remember our papa would bring me and my sister Liz along Philam Park to jog in the morning then Jollibee na afterwards. Ang saya-saya!

MY BEAUTY HAUL AT BeautyMNL + SHOPPING EXPERIENCE




Hello y'all! How's your long weekend going? With all the posts that I have been seeing in my feed, I'm pretty sure, all of us are having a good time. As for me, we started our holiday last monday night— yes, 1 whole week holiday for us kaya sinasagad ko na, minsan lang sa isang taon ang summer guys, let's make the most out of it!

Anyways, prior to leaving home, I was surprised that the package that I ordered from BeautyMNL got delivered. Despite BeautyMNL 's guarantee of next day delivery within Metro Manila addresses, I didn't actually expect that mine will be delivered the next day kasi I placed my order on April 24 which is a Monday and was able to finalise it medyo late na that day kaya nga I placed a special delivery instructions pa for my package since we are leaving for a holiday. I was really happy that I got it before our flight kayo ito, I brought it with me and I am excited to share with you my BeautyMNL haul.

OUR CUPCAKE DECORATING EXPERIENCE AT VANILLA CAFE


It was a rainy Easter Sunday last week. We were able to check-in early from our Marriott Manila Staycation so as soon as we finished checking-in, Tammy and I drove our way to Alabang Town Center for Vanilla Cafe's Cupcake Decorating Easter Activity. It was just an easy and short drive as it was just one "skyway" away! (wink!wink!) —

We were excited for our Easter this year 'cause we know prior that we will have a more egg-citing activity than our previous years. The rain didn't dampen our high spirits that time as Tammy and I imagined and talk about different cupcake decorations during our ride.

10 REASONS WHY MOMS ARE THE BEST



Our moms can or may be our worst enemy at times. Raise your hands if you agree with me on this!

But one thing's for sure: no matter how we hate her, a mom will always love us unconditionally. I can attest to this ever since I became a mom. Tama nga yung sabi nila — you will never truly understand unless you will be one.

ICATS - THE COUNTRY'S LEADING FLIGHT ATTENDANT SCHOOL CELEBRATES ITS 7TH ANNIVERSARY



When I was young, when I was asked on what I would like to be when I grow up— my answer was always "To be a Flight Attendant". Oo, since Kinder, it was my consistent answer.

Here's a little trivia about me trying out as FA ::: During my last year in college, I did try to go to the screening of Cabin Crew for Saudia Airlines. Guess what, I passed! —Yes, you heard me right. Pumasa ako, underwent medical and all and was ready to fly to the Middle East to take the 6 months training! Yun nga lang, I just wasn't able to pursue it because I haven't graduated at that time. It was a very long story. It was also one of the hardest decisions that I ever made in my life because the dean from my university asked me to choose over being an undergrad—Flight Attendant or graduate with flying colors and receive my Diploma. To cut the story short, I did what I was suppose to do. I chose to finish college first and turned down the offer from Saudia. 

Sayang — I know!

I never tried to go to any FA screenings after college since life already took me in different direction. I worked with the most reputable Hotels and Resorts in the country, got married, had a family and was able to put up a business with the support of my dear husband. But you know what, up until now, I still wonder what it would have been like if I pursued on being a flight attendant.

This was the photo which I attached during my application for the Saudia Arabian Airlines FA screening. :)

A MUST TRY! GoodAh!!! 's SINIGANG SA MISO BONELESS BANGUS


Whenever I see Sinigang na bangus, I always remember my "late" yaya also known as our house helper who always cooks her Sinigang na Bangus for us sooooo perfectly! I used to be a "picky" eater that I tend really choose what I eat and who cooks it. Perhaps that's the reason why she has perfected her cooking skills. (wink, wink)

At the time I am writing this post, I am still on my "no rice" on meals which I started last Ash Wednesday and would end on Easter. I cannot "abstain" from eating pork & beef nor practice "fasting" so I just chose to substitute it with the "no rice" on my meals during this Lenten Season.

What about you? Have you done any fasting or abstinence during this lenten season? I'm sure you do 'cause most of the practicing catholic I know are doing something like this during lent. If you are like me who cannot practice full time fasting, one way to do it is to cut out eating pork or any meat and substitute it by eating just vegetables or fish.

NATIONAL BOOK STORE: READ OUT LOUD FOR A BETTER FUTURE


There are books that inform and educate people, from general facts about life or even down on how to cook exotic dishes. There are also books that take you on exciting adventures, scare you through thrilling feats, and of course, books that make you feel all kinds of love – even the unimaginable. Books have their own unique effect on each individual. When we get to hold books in our hands and flip through its pages, words enchant us, opening our minds to new experiences. 

But nothing beats the feeling of finishing a book and adding it to your bookshelf, knowing that you’ve been changed by what you read. While there may be thousands of books published out there, some just stick with us and are worth sharing with the rest of the world.

SMART PARENTING MOM WORKSHOPS 1 : RAISING TODDLERS



Toddler years are the golden age of exploration for a child. It is at this stage where parents should be extra mindful in understanding their kid’s language – and it’s "US", mom, who needs to guide our kids how to communicate effectively.

To help parents navigate the toddler years (children ages 2 to 4 years old) – from tantrums, toddler behavior, hygiene, milestones, activities and more – SmartParenting.com.ph, the most credible parenting online resource backed by experts and a community of moms and dads, kicked off its annual signature workshops with the first leg, Smart Parenting Mom Workshops 1: Raising Toddlers on March 18, 2016 at Makati Diamond Residences. 

“Hopefully, parents will leave the workshop more confident about parenting their toddlers,” Leah Nemil-San Jose, Smart Parenting’s editor in chief. 

"The work  really starts at this age when it comes to raising bright and independent kids.” 

Here are just some of the important points I learned during the workshop: 

- Children needs to be outdoors ---> let them be with somebody talking to them rather than give them their iPads and tablets.
- We need to let our toddlers go out so that their immune system can be built.
- When taming a child while she or he is in tantrum mode, remember this:
    - His or her left brain has already shut down that's why it is not advisable if you try to talk to your child like an adult because he would't hear it anyway. With this, the right brain should be to the rescue. 
    - It is your tone of voice that the child is hearing and not what you say since his left brain has already shut down. So it is imperative that you talk to him with a slow mannered tone. In that way, your child would be able to calm down. 


The first speaker is Michelle Tambunting, the co-founder and directress of Young Creative Minds Preschool, discussed how to tame tantrums and doled out advice on parenting effectively in this digital age.


Second Speaker is a model mom of two toddlers, Nicole Hernandez de-los Angeles. She shared her experience on raising two boys. She spoke for Belo Baby, one of the major sponsors of the SP workshop, and spoke about how she found the perfect baby skin products for her boys, relying on Belo Baby because it has 100% certified natural ingredients. 


Another Speaker is Dr. Carmina M. Arriola-delos Reyes, pediatrician and infectious disease specialist, gave an informative talk on pain and fever management when it comes to kids.


The last speaker was Arceli Tan of Insular Life, ended the discussions with one the most important subject parents need to know, money. She talked about Financial 101 for all moms.

After the talks, all participants were treated with sumptuous buffet, exciting raffle prizes, and gifts – thanks to Smart Parenting and its major sponsors – Insular Life, Belo Baby, and Calpol - and partner concessionaires – Smart Steps and Nature to Nurture.

You may view more photos of the workshop HERE.
