My Cherifer Story: Reaching The Top!

Cherifer is a multivitamin trusted and proven over the years to promote a child with optimized growth potential. It is definitely a perfect partner for a mom like me who wants what's best for their children.

I started giving Cherifer Syrup to my eldest Tristan, when he was around 3 years old. It was recommended to me by my sister in law who is a Pediatrician when we went home to my hometown in La Union last summer. I didn't think twice and even bought Cherifer drops for baby Athena my second child who was less than a year old by that time, I guess she was around 7 months old. Unlike before, my kids especially Tristan would often get sick, and has a very poor appetite. But since we switched to Cherifer, his appetite improved, I couldn't recall the last time he got sick, he's active, and most of all he looks healthier, same with Athena. I have learned to trust CHERIFER and I am very happy with the change I did because Cherifer indeed gave me a favorable outcome. Who wouldn't love that?

By the way here are some facts you need to know about my trusted Cherifer vitamins.

CHERIFER is available in the following preparations:

CHERIFER DROPS- recommended from infants up to 2 years of age
CHERIFER SYRUP- recommended for children 2-6 years of age.
CHERIFER FORTE Syrup- recommended for children aged 2- 6 years old (during this time, growth gap years occurs). Same as Cherifer syrup but with double strength CGF.
CHERIFER PGM- recommended for teenagers 10-22 years of age
CHERIFER PREMIUM- recommended for young professionals, athletes an geriatrics and people with active, stressful lifestyle .
CHERIFER Syrup, Forte and PGM are also available with Zinc, which is best for those who needs a boost with their immunity.

But all Cherifer Vitamins has Chlorella Growth Factor which promotes rapid growth. Cherifer does promote TANGKAD SAGAD!

Some parents might be looking for affordable Vitamins for their kids, but all I can say is that with Cherifer I believe that our money is well spent.

By the way, I 'm sure all mommies would be glad to know that CHERIFER together with FOX International Channels properties (Star World, Star Movies, FOX, FOX Filipino and National Geographic Channel) has launched an on air contest entitled "My Cherifer Story" and Promotion Period is from October 9- November 20, 2013.

Whoa! When I found out about this I was really enticed. I thought to give it a try since my kids are on Cherifer anyways. I was just concerned about the VOTES because 50% of the score will be based from it. Some entries that were submitted earlier already has lots of votes while some are just starting to earn it. However I already contacted them about this, and they told me that they will have an internal computation with regards to the number of VOTES.

By the way, here's my entry. I really don't know anything about video editing, good thing my hubby knows a bit so we were able to come up with this video entry.

video


We came up with the title "Reaching The Top" since it's all about Tristan literally trying to reach the top. He would always climb on our table, on the couch and likes going up the stairs. Even through his younger years until now, he is already showing so much interest on basketball. That is why as soon as he finishes his bottle of Cherifer Syrup we'll transition him over to Cherifer Forte. We literally don't have tall genes, so Cherifer Forte would be best for him because it has double strength of CGF which will promote rapid growth for him plus it's perfect because Tristan is already on the growth gap years.I believe that it is all parents desire for their kids to be on top right?

Are you interested? Well I suggest you head on over to http://www.mycheriferstory.com/ to know more about the contest and to check other entries as well. By the way while you're at it, could you please Vote for my entry? Thanks in Advance :)

Pregnancy Update: 35, 36 and 37 Weeks

My last update was 32, 33 and 34th week. My Prenatal check up was postponed for several times already, but I was able to meet up with my OB last October 24 and today, November 4.

October 24, I had my Ultrasound done to check baby's position and the gender. But unfortunately at that time baby's still on breech so again we are unable to determine the gender. My unborn baby also weighs less, just 2371 grams or 5.2 pounds which made a difference on the my expected delivery date, instead of November, it showed as December 7, 2013. I was worried that my baby weighs less when I know that I am eating a lot and that I take on my daily vitamins. However I was a bit guilty since I always sleep late at night.

Moving on, today again I went for my weekly appointment with my OB anticipating a good news. And guess what? Finally my unborn baby was able to maneuver inside my womb in to a favorable position, yes he/she is now on Cephalic presentation. That explains the pain I felt a few days ago. The pain was kind of unbearable I even thought I am already having a labor. So it only means, I will be having a normal delivery, and we'll be able to find out the gender. However I preferred to keep it a suspense for another week, we'll get to know the gender on my next visit. My unborn baby also gained weight, my expected delivery date again varied from Dec.7 to December 1. But nothing is certain, basing on my LMP (last menstrual period) it should be November 15, 2013. So I am really getting anxious as early as now, because it could be earlier.

So nowadays, as my anxiety increases I am also feeling that my energy is decreasing. I am feeling unusually lazy that I don't get to do the things that I used to enjoy. I am sleepy even when I just woke up and it goes on all through out the day. Well as they say I gotta save my energy for the big day, and yes that's what I'm going to do!

Hubby's Birthday!

I can't believe that October is already over and looking on my blog, I am not happy at all. I wasn't active with blogging lately which left me with only 3 posts for the whole month of October, when I know there's a lot that should have been posted. I have a lot of catching up to do, so moving on here's another long overdue post. I'm starting off with Hubby's birthday celebration.

October is my birth month, so is my mom in law and hubby's. Birthday is a special occasion celebrated by all, it's a celebration of life and to be thankful for everything. October 21st was Hubby's birthday it falls on a Monday so we celebrated it a day in advance together with my in laws. 

We decided to eat out, a lunch buffet at Yakimix. We already anticipated a long queue in SM Mall of Asia so we went straight to Yakimix Macapagal. It was definitely a good idea because as soon as we arrived we were able to find a good spot and was seated right away. 
And the rest was history :)


 My first plate


 My Salad Plate


 Grillin'


 Caught in the act hehe, my in laws busy eating


There will always be a family shot :)


 Desserts!


Yumm

With the first plate I already felt a bit full but was still able to have another serving of rice, I also had sushi which I wasn't able to take photos of, in fact I was only able to take a few shots.

Yakimix has an ongoing promotion, wherein a birthday celebrant gets to eat for free all you have to do is to present a valid ID that includes your birth date. But since we just celebrated it a day in advance we weren't able to avail of it but instead took advantage of a "Happy Birthday" jingle from the staff, good thing I was able to record it. 
video

Not so good looking shot from my father in law, who was the only one
 left on the table with us right that moment. tee hee!

We all had a happy tummy, I already forgot weather we still had dinner or not lol.
The next day, October 21st Hubby's official birthday I prepared something special for him before he left for work. Lunch time I left the house for my prenatal check up but it was pushed to a different date since my OB had an emergency operation to perform. So I went straight to SM Center Las Pinas and bought some ingredients for my pasta, and went to a nearby Starbucks.


 Using my Starbucks Card I was able to purchase 2 Venti sized Frap
and a complimentary slice of blueberry cheesecake since it's my birth month.


 I wasn't able to use the Card during my birthday so  just gave the cake to hubby


Cheers!


I cooked Creamy Tuna Pasta. (Pls excuse me for our messy dining table)


That's it! It was a double celebration of hubby's birthday. Indeed celebrating birthdays has been a traditional thing. Weather it's a grand celebration or just a simple one, what matters is that it is celebrated with the most important people in your life. I am happy how hubby appreciated the simple thing I did on his special day. 
How about you, how do you celebrate special occasions like Birthday? Or what special thing have you done for someone special? Feel free to share :)

My Natal Day

Another year added, another year to cherish and to be thankful for. Sometimes I forget just how lucky I am.. No, lucky isn't the right word. I am blessed. I'm very happy to be blessed with awesome people in my life. Life is good and God is great!

Yesterday I turned 25, and my Facebook wall was flooded with lots of Birthday wishes from families, friends and online friends even some of them I don't know and haven't met personally which is overwhelming. Birthday wishes started coming as soon as the clock struck 12mn and I was still awake at that time. In fact I already slept past 3 then woke up around 5am when Jaear arrived home from work.

Jaear didn't sleep right away so I took advantage of it and slept some more while he looked after the kids. I overslept and woke up 12nn already, still feeling sleepy and exhausted but cooked something easy for lunch. But J fell fast asleep so it was just me and the kids who ate lunch. He woke up later that afternoon then immediately prepared and left for work. So we didn't get the chance to celebrate my birthday, it felt just like an ordinary day except that I am getting lots of birthday wishes.

But before J left for work, I planned on cooking spaghetti so he could eat before leaving but he's already in a hurry. Then my in laws called and told me not to cook anymore as they will be taking home some foods.


My in laws took home some Pancit, which I really missed,
and a whole lechon manok/roasted chicken.


A Chocolate dedication cake and Leche Flan rolled cake from Red Ribbon


Incomplete, wish you were here.


After singing "Happy Birthday" blowing of the candle!
No one is too old for this :)


Ayan nauna na si Athena takaw :)

Just when I thought my day would end up like any other ordinary day, it turned out to be a special one. Thanks to my in laws who made it possible, indeed I have lots of amazing people in my life. Just too bad Jaear's not around to celebrate with us and also times like this I miss home, my family back in the province whom I used to celebrate with. Actually my parents did celebrate my birthday too, my mom also cooked pancit for me, thoughtful no?

Even though my birthday isn't a grand celebration, in fact it was just very simple what's important is that for me it's special, though I'm not with some of the important people in my life physically I'm already thankful that they took some time to wish me the best on my special day and for making me feel that they are just there for me, even just virtually.

I feel blessed!


I almost forgot about this. Here's what Jaear got for me, he knows me so well!
And Yes, I intentionally did not remove the price tag, where else can you buy chocolate during dawn? 7-11!
Simple things make me happy, as long as it's done from the heart. ♥

Sunday Funday + Mom in Laws Birthday

Here's another long overdue post. Just a quick post about some happenings 2 weeks ago, my mother in laws birthday celebration.

October 6, first Sunday of the month and my mom in laws birthday. We decided to have her birthday lunch at Yakimix SM Mall of Asia branch. But again we left home late, so when we arrived at Yakimix around 1pm there was a very long queue already. There were 16 people on the list which made us on the 17th spot, so that's a long wait. Their lunch buffet closes at 2:15pm, considering the long queue, the time, and that we are all so hungry we decided to eat somewhere else. 

We decided to have seafood so we drove straight to Seaside Macapagal or Dampa, they have "Paluto" wherein you get to to buy fresh seafood from the market and have it cooked at any restaurant of your choice. My in laws chose to have our "Paluto" at Yatai Ramen, they've been here before already as for me it's my first time. I've been to Dampa 2 times before but to different restaurants. As soon as we arrived we were seated right away, since it's already past lunch time the place isn't that crowded. 
While waiting for our food...


 It aint complete without photos taken.


 Baby Athena checking on the Menu :)


 My in laws, happy birthday Ma!


Sis in law with cousin Rizza

It took a while before the food was served, which made us even more hungry.But of course again, we wont miss taking a good shot of the foods before eating 'em!


 We had 2 plates of this savory Garlic shrimp


 Garlic Rice


 Snapper in Sour broth or Sinigang na Maya maya


 Calamares


 Baked Mussel/Tahong


 They had, Pineapple, Green and Ripe Mango Shake


While I chose Coconut Shake :)

I really thought I'd eat a lot since I was very hungry, I even ordered an extra serving of rice but didn't finish it. We even had some left overs which we took home. (I'll be making a separate review post about our dining experience at Yatai Ramen.)

After eating, we went straight to SM City Manila to avail the 3,000 voucher I won from Mendrez Shoes and Bags Facebook Giveaway. I decided to use it to buy a gift for my mother in law, and we are just right on time because they were having a Sale so instead of just 1, I was still able to buy for myself. 

 My mom in law chose this bag because it matches her uniform.

Mine!

These 2 bags are originally priced at 1,999 each but with the 20% discount we only got it for 1,599.20. So it's 9,198.40 in total but we only paid P198.40 for the 2 bags since we used the 3,000 voucher.

(After shopping )Although i'm full, still got some room for Dairy Queen's Blizzrd :)

Afterwards, we drove back to Las Pinas but Jaear and  I went straight to SM Center Las Pinas. Because a day before Sunday, I got lucky once more for winning 1,000 Shopping Gift Certificate from SM which I can only claim unitl Sunday and we used it right away since we are already running out of stash and pay day is still a week after. 

Here's what we got for 1,000 GC

At home my mom in laws birthday cake which was bought by my sister in law awaits us. In fact it's the only thing I had for dinner, because I' still full from what we had for lunch.
 Blueberry Torte.

So that's it, a fun Sunday it is with family. I also feel blessed that I am able to share with others my winnings from being an online contest fanatic. Being a full time mom who doesn't have a source of income somehow I am still able to contribute, even in small ways. Imagine aside from getting free stuff for me, I am able to share it to others. Isn't it cool?

Pregnancy Update: 32, 33 and 34 Weeks

I can't believe it, I'm already on my 34th week of pregnancy, 6 more weeks or less I will be having our third bundle of joy! I posted an update during my 31st week however this past weeks had been busy that's why I wan't able to post any blog entry. Also my baby girl is kind of having an issue whenever I'm in front of the computer (papansin hehe) which I find sweet.

So during this weeks, my unborn baby is continuously developing her organs. She now has fingernails, toenails and hair. Her central nervous system is maturing and her lungs are continuing to mature as well. At this point a baby can already be delivered, although preterm as long as they don't have any health problems they will be fine but may need a short stay on the neonatal care. source

By the way, after my prenatal check up last September 13 I was supposed to go back on the 27th but I wan't able to go that day. I had it postponed for a week due to time conflict. Jaear just started out with his new job and had a lot of things to accomplish that week. So I was able to visit my OB last last week October 4. I had my shot of Tetanus Toxoid and my OB checked on my unborn baby.

The heart beat was normal, but still my baby hasn't turned to Cephalic presentation which is ideal for a normal delivery. So it's still hard to determine the gender. My OB also gave me a heads up that if my baby wont turn before my expected delivery, I might undergo a Cesarean Section.

I had my 2 kids via normal delivery so as much as possible I would want this to be that way for the following reasons:
Shorter hospital stay
Quicker recovery time
I can breastfeed immediately
Decreased risk of maternal hemorrhage, blood clots, and damage to internal organs.
Decrease risk of illnesses for my baby.
Less expensive.

As a nurse I do have knowledge about this and I also made some researches already. Both have their Pro's and Con's but I still prefer to give birth the natural way.

My next visit to my OB is on the 18th right after my birthday. We will be repeating the ultrasound once more to check my unborn baby's position, hopefully by that time he/she's already on Cephalic.But based on my readings, at this point my baby doesn't have enough room to maneuver inside my womb because his bigger now. But I'm still putting my hope up,well I am also eager to know the gender, I really haven't picked out a baby name yet haha!

Can you suggest any good names for both boy and girl? I'm open for any suggestions :)

Yabu: House of Katsu Review

Disclaimer: This is my first ever Restaurant Review, I am not a food critic and all opinions expressed are of my own personal experience. The restaurant has no foreknowledge that I would write this review.

I have been reading a lot of good reviews about Yabu, which made me wanna try it. And I just got lucky because recently I won a Yabu GC worth 2,000 from i am dekaphobicblog which means I'll get to try Yabu for free, yey!

If you know me that well, I am certified foodie and I love trying out new dishes, and Japanese food is no exception. 

Knowing my in laws food preference I was doubting weather they'd enjoy Yabu, but still hubby and I offered to use the GC with them. It's also their first time hearing about Yabu which made them curious and accepted our offer. So last Sunday September 22nd which is also my father in laws birthday, we went to Yabu SM Southmall. I was expecting a long queue based on the reviews that I read, but as soon as we arrived there we were seated right away. Well maybe because we arrived there around 1:30pm which is already past lunch time. 

First thing that I noticed was the ambiance, it was very cozy. Each table has a set of condiments, Himalayan Pink Salt, Tonkatsu Sauce, Salad Dressings and Japanese seasonings. As soon as our orders were taken, a small dish with sesame seeds and a pestle was served. Since I was reading reviews prior I already knew that the sesame seed needs to be ground and the tonkatsu sauce to be added next which will serve as a dipping sauce for the katsu, even before the server informed us about it. 


Kuya Tantan having fun grinding the sesame seeds


The fruit Shake was served next, and mine was Watermelon Shake. The price ranges from 90-100

Surprisingly we found a strand of hair on J's Mango Shake right before he was about to take a sip, so we had it replaced right away.

And finally, after few minutes of waiting our foods was served.


I ordered the Kurobuta Pork Set 120g (575.00)
Me and my son shared this order, since he only eats a little.

"Kurobuta, also known as the black Berkshire pig, is the world's FINEST pork. It is also called the "kobe beef of pork" due to its rich marbling, softness and flavor."


Jaear ordered the Chicken Katsu Set 180g (360.00)
He never gets tired of chicken lol!


Creamy Dory Set 180g (375.00) for my Mom in Law 


Seafood Katsu Set 1 (485.00) for my Father in Law


Chicken ans Seafood Katsu Set (475.00) for my Sister in Law

Each set of Katsu is already served with unlimited Japanese rice, Miso Soup, unlimited shredded cabbage, Japanese pickles and sliced fresh fruit for dessert. However on top of the price of each Katsu sets, there's still a 5% service charge. Our bill was around 3,000 plus, I'm too lazy to do the math lol, but since we have the 2,000 GC we only paid 1,000 something. Not bad. 

The Experience: 

Did I say I love the ambiance? The lighting, the interior design and all are very cozy. On the way to the Rest Room ,there's a huge mirror on the wall. Outside and inside the Rest Room's wall are filled with posters about what celebrities and bloggers have to say about Yabu. However there's only 1 rest room for both male and female. We didn't get to experience long queue since we arrived late, the Staffs are all approachable and kind. But I just didn't like the fact that there was a strand of hair on J's mango shake, but so far we didn't find any on our foods.lol! My in laws didn't enjoy the food as much as I did, again as I said our food preference is different. The Katsu was really crispy yet very tender, however it just didn't meet up my expectation of it being juicy, I am basing this on the reviews that I read. J didn't really liked the sauce with sesame seeds in it but according to him the Chicken was kinda dry and not that tasty which made him dip his chicken. They also didn't like the miso soup. But again, I wouldn't question that, this is not their kind of food, but of course they still enjoyed it somehow and we all got full. Well as for me I really enjoyed it, I even had 3 rice refills and a refill of the shredded cabbage. 

Will I go back for more? Yes I will, because there's still other set that I wanna try, and the next time around I'll try to bring along my friends who also loves Japanese so it's not just me who's enjoying. lol!

Sundate with the In Laws

After Kuya T and Baby A's birthday,the party isn't over yet, because my Father in Law celebrated his birthday last Sunday, September 22nd. Instead of celebrating at home we decided to eat out. J and I offered to use the 2,000 GC for Yabu: House of Katsu which I recently won from [i am dekaphobic blog. Yabu has lots of branches but we decided to go to SM South Mall since it's the closest one and besides it was also raining. It's our first time to try Yabu, neither one of us had tried it before. And knowing their food preference I was kinda doubting weather they'd enjoy the foods as for me, I go for anything.  We went out late already and as soon as we arrived at South Mall we immediately looked for Yabu.

Here's the story of what happened that day, through photos.
Kids OOTD. Before leaving the house.

It was around past 2 pm already so it was a late lunch and snack at the same time. We were seated right away and while waiting for our foods we took some photos.
My In laws. Happy birthday Papa!
