Importance Of Play To The Holistic Health Of Children.

When we hear the word "Play", the word "Fun" follows but there is more than that. It is through play that much of children’s early learning is achieved.

I must admit, I let my kids play with smartphones. But aside from games I mostly install educational applications on my phone, in fact, that's how my eldest learned his Alphabet.

Their toys aren't fancy in fact some of them aren't really toys like empty ice cream container, Jollibee bucket, papers and a lot more. We make the most out of what we have. My eldest who is 5 years old would build a city using this pieces of materials. They also have building blocks, toy cars, story books and crayons.

#healthishappening: The 21-Day Healthy Habit Challenge



Unilab Foundation is Challenging all Netizens of the Philippines to a 21-Day Healthy Habit Challenge. Because building a healthier Philippines starts with you, as you create small but sustainable changes for holistic well being.

This is actually a Volunteer Project that aside from helping us become healthy individuals we also get to be rewarded, in this way more will be encouraged to participate.


I volunteered and accepted the challenge not just for myself but especially for my kids, I believe I owe them a healthy living. For that I vow to make health happen by creating healthy habits. As a full time mom it is my duty to introduce and instill healthy habits as early as now while they are still young and be their role model and hope that they carry it as they grow up.Actually, I already started with the challenge since October 7 and so far enjoying it that I decided to also post it here on the blog.

Back To Blogging, Hopefully


After a very long hiatus, here I am back to Blogging once again. You don't have any idea how much I missed doing this! Ever since I can remember I have this passion for writing, though I admit I am not a really good writer. I used to love writing letters to my friends and parents when I was still young, I have my personal journal way back High school and early College years. When Blogging started to surface on the internet I became interested and began micro-blogging on Facebook and Tumblr. But at that time, my studies was my priority so I only Blog once in a while. 

Then I became a full time mom, spending all day long in the house with the kids, watching TV, socializing on my Facebook. But my social media usage cranked up a notch when I began joining online promos, reading different Blogs of known and successful Bloggers. My passion for Blogging was then again reestablished, so June of last year I started with this Blog while I was pregnant with my youngest.Then I stopped after giving birth, because it's not easy blogging with 2 little kids, a baby and without a household helper. Just imagine all the things I have to go through everyday. 

Actually I tried, I had several attempts to Blog but I haven't even finished typing the title something would suddenly come up, so I have to stop. To all who know me well, I love joining online contests and I also stopped for the same reason. But eventually I still find ways to participate in some contests but not blogging. Because in all honesty there are times that I feel like I can't come up with something even though I want to and it's just frustrating. It really is! 

But here I am again, trying to make a comeback and it's all because I once again got inspired by a post of one beautiful Mommy Blogger Topaz Mommy, she's indeed a very honest and excellent Blogger! I like reading here Blog so much!

I Blog not to impress nor to compete my way up to the top with all other Bloggers, I am way far behind them. Like what I always say, I am not a good writer but writing is my passion. I am not very vocal so I tend to write it all down. Being a full time stay at home mom with kids as my companion most of the time, being in a new environment with my parents and friends away from me, and technology as our only means of communication I find Blogging a way for me to express what I feel. This is my own personal space where I can rant and rave about my journey towards motherhood and anything in between. 


Having a huge number of followers is too much for a Novice like me. But having few who would gladly read what I have to share and relate to it would be really awesome. 

Hopefully, I'll be able to find more time to Blog. Dear Lord I ask for your guidance. Amen!

Discover The Beautiful You with Ceraklin by InnoDerm

It's summer and Mr. Sun is doing a pretty good job for that summer feeling that makes you go out and about in the pool or the beach! But too much summer heat is no fun, my dry skin says it all.

Thus saying, being able to encounter Innoderm is definitely Inevitable while I was searching for a quality type of soap for these kind of weather. It's a compelling product in the market by Metopharma which is purposely crafted to serve as solution to skin care problems.

(Front Packaging)

Ceraklin comes in a form of a Body Wash and a Bar soap which can be bought in a any Mercury Drugstore.

What made me interested with Ceraklin is the fact that it can be used by me and my kids for that extra care and protection that our skin is looking for. Don't get me wrong, safety first right? that's why before buying I first consulted with my kids Pediatrician and they highly approved it.

(Ceraklin is made from all natural ingredients that helps our skin stay naturally moisturized)


(The soap itself is in transparent form, my son even thought it was an ice.)

We have been using this for more than two weeks now (made sure to do so before blogging about it actually) The first thing that I noticed is that it doesn't have that strong scent that sometimes causes irritation to sensitive smell and for these kinds of moisturizing soap I'm amazed that it doesn't melt that easily. I don't have a hard time rinsing it compared to other products and our skin feels supple in an instant.

My kids had grown fond of it too haven't had any skin irritations or rashes which they usually experience during hot weathers. I also found out that it reduces the appearance of stretch marks which is a plus for me, with continued use I'm beginning to see favorable results. It can only get better the way things are going with CERAKLIN.

(One hot picture while chillin in the cool pool)

Embracing Summer #TheDumondWay!


Ahh Summer! Finally it's that time of the year once again and they say Summer time is when a lot of fun and good things happens, I couldn't agree more! I just love Summer, the beach, the sound of the waves, sand, sun and the lists goes on but wait..What’s your summer style?

Well my summer style could be Floral, Bold, Pastel, or anything comfortable yet stylish, take this for example.




Yeah for me summer wouldn't be complete without short shorts, then pairing it up with a colorful top. Camera to capture priceless moments, Sunglasses and sun hat to protect me against the sun. Flip flops are also a must have, and I want it to be comfy and have that classy look that's why my choice is this Dumond Flip Flops. Also for a mom like me a Bag is essential because surely I'll be taking my kids around me and this Dumond Bag is a good find because it's spacious and has that summery look. This one is perfect for a day under the sun.


And this one is perfect for a summer date with hubby or a family fun outdoors. Maxi skirt gives that flowing summery look best paired with a crop top for that sexy aura. Sun glasses are my best friend which will shield me against the sun rays, a Flower Crown for that summer fairy look. Sophisticated Dumond Bags and Flip flops to complete it. I really love how flexible Dumond Flip flops are, it goes with any outfit I wear and it's a plus that it's very comfy.

There, I'm ready to Celebrate and Embrace Summer in Style #TheDumondWay!


Oh, Curious about Dumond? 

It's a shoes, accessories and bag brand all the way from Brazil, a tropical country with beautiful beaches just like ours. Dumond offers "fashion elements combined with a sophisticated and audacious design" Brazilian Way and are only made from Premium Quality with Beauty and Style.

Just like me, let Dumond take you to Brazil and embrace the summer with style #TheDumondWay!

Open Your Heart Philippines~

What do I want to give to the Philippines? Usually it’s the other way around since every new year what we desire is to “Receive” something new instead. I’ve thought of giving money but I have my own expenses. I’ve thought of giving love but I’m not loved enough myself. How about food? I’ll be hungry later on or What about clothes? Nah my clothes are too expensive.


If you noticed there’s so many things we can give however there’s also so many excuses and reasons that hinders us to see the importance of sharing. Let’s not wait for nature’s wrath like typhoons and earthquake before we take actions. Helping can happen even if it’s not needed but because it’s the right thing to do which can benefit your fellowmen.

A peso coin can save someone’s life that needs to buy a medicine. Remember the saying a million peso wouldn’t be a million if it’s missing even just a peso coin? No value is too small. Giving love and showing care to someone can mean the world for a lonely or sad person. At the end of the day you both end up with friends you can trust and rely on. When you have some left over from restaurant most of us end up leaving it behind where restaurant staff throw it out in the garbage can. We think it’s a hassle and were shy to ask for it. What we tend to overlook is that even a piece of bread can already serve as a meal for the entire day to a child in the street. The clothes that we wore and are now stuck at our closet can give warmth to another person’s life. 

I’m not trying to encourage others to rely on alms or donations. I just want them to feel the love and kindness of someone else to save them from the thought of being entirely alone in this world. 


If given the chance.  What I want to give to the Philippines is an organized fund raising event called: “Open up your hearts” A concert for different kinds of foundations. If possible with artist who are also advocates of giving and sharing. This is to encourage everyone to have their hands open in terms of giving freely no matter what the situations is. 


All of us have the brain to think logically but only few are open minded. This 2014 I also want to give the Philippines an eye that can see the value of small things for other people. Throw away your excuses and reasons to lift up your sense of helpfulness. You don’t lose when you give because you gain so much more like; happiness, fulfillment, love and friendship that no money can buy in this world.


Thank you Nuffnang Philippines and Globe for opening your hands to help the people of the Philippines get a chance to have a smile in their hearts #GLOBEProjectWonderful2014 .

How about you? “If there is one thing you can give to the Philippines, what is that gift?”

Kindly write your answer / wish in the comment box below. Nuffnang Philippines and Globe will choose a winning wish from the comments of the winning blog and the chosen reader will get an iPad Mini 2!

A wish can be a reality especially if it’s for the best of everyone’s lives. 
Go ahead and share your wish now and make a difference.
This contest will run from January 9, 2014 to January 29, 2014.

Get active and fit with VIT

I’m sure having a fit and active lifestyle is included in your new year’s resolution this year as well as spending more quality time with your family. I’m a fan of natural ways to achieve a healthy body but for an extra boost I came across this new craze in town called VitWater.


My favorite is VitWater Power Apple flavor that have Taurine, Ginseng and B Vitamins which are essential for that power boost you need if you decide to travel with your friends and family. Getting that perfect body doesn’t have to be always hard, sometimes you can enjoy it with a taste of apple on the side J

Here’s some pictures from our first travel destination for 2014.

 Some spots we enjoyed while waiting for our orders


Must try foodies if ever you drop by at the People’s park at the sky.  My favorite is the hot bulalo. Perfect for the breezy weather at tagaytay.


Relaxing and fun moments with my family. Just another 2014 new year’s resolution I’d like to continue doing.


Another favorite of mine is the VitWater TRIM that has L-Carnitine.  As a stay at home mom finding time to exercise to have my pre pregnant body can be quite difficult. That’s why whenever given the chance I make sure to drop by at any near gym to burn some unwanted fats. The perfect thing is that VitWater TRIM also has B vitamins that helps in the metabolism and energy production so I’m always on the go with these fun activities.

Time to move that body baby!


At the end of the day I found some extra time to chill out with my girl friends and baby boy. Had a nice chat by the pool and a quick picnic. No more Stress, Fats and Boredom because I can Vit this with VITWATER.


I hope you all get to fulfill as well your New Year's Resolutions. :)

We Choose Chacho’s

Buh bye 2013 and Hello 2014! Another year has ended and many new things are coming. Just like this new Chacho's Tortilla Chips that I came across in Facebook. Most probably it’s also your first time reading about this product. I’m an explorer myself and I love to try out anything that’s new. I made sure to include this in my grocery list before dropping by at Robinson’s Supermarket.

It’s comes with 3 flavors to choose from:

BBQ Bonanza

One of the least flavors I get is BBQ but for some reason I can’t help but to join in when my friends was also munching on it. It has a unique taste that’s just right for my taste bud.


Spicy Curry

Did I mention before that I love curry? I never knew I’ll be able to enjoy it in Chips style as well! The spiciness is just right for us to enjoy it nonstop. Good thing the ones we bought was in a promo. We got free coke to push down all the goodness J


and Cheesy Cheese.

My all time favorite for chips has always been the cheese flavor and Chacho’s didn’t fail my expectations! The cheese part was just too awesome that licking the cheese on our fingers became a must do, instead of washing it away with water.


Here’s some kulitan and bonding moments with my Barkada with Chacho’s Tortilla Chips


I hope you enjoyed reading and hoping we can all try something new this 2014!

Why I Want a Cyberya Minigosyo


BOOM! It’s now 2014 as you might have noticed. Let’s all get in with the new and out with old. Well… you might ask, what’s something new can we try this year? Actually let me ask you, do you like making money? I’m sure you do! So read on. 

Introducing the “PLDT’s Cyberya Minigosyo” which has been continuously booming since last year.  My husband’s family used to have a computer shop for more than 4 years but due to management issues on who’s going to attend to customers, the business slowly ceased to operate. This is why I want to start a new Mini Business like what we call “Piso Net” Perfect business for busy people since it needs minimum to zero need for maintenance.

Benefits and Advantages:

Affordability 

A customer can access the internet for as low as 1 peso! Perfect for people that wants to just grab a quick glance on their Facebook or Email account and Kids with limited budget.

Maintenance and Administration 

It’s more of like a self service business. At first the computer will be in lock mode. Customers just need to insert a 1 peso coin and that’s it! Instant access on a computer to do all the fun things they can on the internet for 3 minutes. It has a timer of its own so absolutely no need to watch over the person using the internet with the worry of overusing the computer beyond the time he/she paid for.


Profits

The most important part for all of us obviously. Almost everyone uses the computer either offline or online. To see is to believe if you go to either a computer shop or a PLDT Cyberya computer stall you’ll see that even age wouldn’t matter. Young or young at heart uses computers for their personal needs. It’s a guarantee that you’ll always have customers especially with the affordability of the service.  

So don’t be left out this year! Apply in an easy process, Pay necessary fees and for the computer, Get the package and wait as the Cyberya Minigosyo works it’s magic!

For more details like the cost and details of the computer please visit this link below. You can also find cool info on how to apply and how fast you’ll be able to get back your investment. 
I hope you enjoyed reading and hoping to see lots and lots of people getting rich one by one.
