RECIPE: MACKEREL BALLS


There are moments when you are at home and it's midnight and suddenly you become hungry. Nangyari na ba sainyo ito? Did it ever happened to you? I'm sure it did.

I swear, it's really hard to sleep ng gutom (when you're tummy is rumbling like crazy). The next episode of my gutom went on "me" waking up the "husband" and invited him for a midnight chi-cha (snack)! :) Actually, I woke him up so he can help me in doing a quick pangtawid gutom easy-peasy recipe out of our stacked Mackerel. Promise guys, this recipe is solb-na-solb!

LOOK: MIDEA WASHING MACHINES CAN BE YOUR PARTNER IN PREPARATION FOR THE RAINY SEASON


It has been raining on and off lately. And with the monsoon season coming in, keeping clothes fresh and dry after laundry will definitely be a challenge. Nobody wants to go to work or school with their clothes still smelling as if it were just taken out of the tub right. While there are some who go to the laundromat to get their clothes washed, this option costs as much as Php 40,000 a year— money that could have been saved for a really good washing machine.

A BALANCED MOTHERHOOD AND HOW TO PREPARE OUR KIDS FUTURE


Hey guys, today is declared a holiday here in the Philippines. How was your long weekend? Did you went out of town or had a staycation? I wanted to treat sana the husband and the daughter for another staycation but then again, I came back to my senses and asked myself "kailangan nga ba talaga?" So we just stayed home this time, para maiba naman. 💁 I think I should congratulate myself for being able to absorb the learnings from the talk that I have attended which was hosted by Sun Life Philippines last Wednesday. It was a "MOMS DAY OUT EVENT",  a stress-free day treat to Moms at I'm Onsen Spa at I'm Hotel with talks on self-care and money management.

YOU CAN NOW DO YOUR OWN DIY OIL ESSENCE WITH MISSO® s2o SEED TO OIL WONDER EXTRACTOR


Back in the day, the use of black seed oil by famous Royalties to keep their skin glowing and their hair shiny have already been a practice. In this modern age of technology and medicine, the rapid increase in demand for beauty products is inevitable and women are more motivated than ever to try a new beauty regimen. But I am still glad to share with you that even up to this day, oils have been a part of our lives may it be medicated or essential oils for that matter. 

Lavender oil is one of my favourite especially when I used it to calm me down during a massage session. Drops of eucalyptus oil which we use in our Aerator to keep a fresh scent throughout our home. And a dab of citronella oil on my daughter's skin to shoo away those pesky mosquitos and of course to protect ourselves from dengue especially when we travel. 

These are just some of the many oils that we use in our daily lives.

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.

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.

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.

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.
