Teaching kids self care and oral hygiene skills


As parents, it is our responsibility to take care of our children. Not only making sure their needs are met, but also being confident that they fend for themselves when the situation calls for it. That is why teaching our kids basic, and age-appropriate life skills is a must. And, self-care and hygiene skills are the topmost basic life skills we should be teaching our children. These are everyday habits and lifelong skills that will not only make them look nice but will help them become healthy overall.

Play Days 2020: Playtime for Parents and Children Amidst Coronavirus

Mommies and daddies, how are you and your kids, holding up? It's been over three months since the mandated community quarantine due to Coronavirus. And, with the school year being pushed back for a few more months, we have no choice but to stay home with our kids for their safety.

This pandemic has sure taught us a lot of things such as, slowing down and spending more quality time with our family. I hope that you get to bond with your kids at home through active play activities, and not just through watching TV or videos online but playing as in actively playing. 




Bonding through playtime among parents and kids can tend to be a rare concept nowadays, but still very much important. Playtime between parents and kids doesn’t have to end at fun. |It’s also a way to keep kids active, and healthy- physically and mentally.



Tristan, Athena, and Brianna have been playing nonstop. They play with their toys, with their gadgets, watch TV, role-playing, and a lot of active plays too. I let them be, but I make sure to allot time playing with them. We also make time for study time. Their day is full of activities, hindi maawat kahit mainit ang panahon at pawisan na. 

Johnson’s continually advocates for active playtime and bonding moments among parents and their kids as this has also been proven to help keep children healthy overall, especially with regards to their mental health. Johnson’s has continuously shown this through the yearly Johnson’s Baby Playdays campaign. We attended Playdays 2019, last year which I shared here. This summer, the best lessons are waiting to be learned and the best part about all of it is children can learn it together with their parents while at home, with Johnson’s, laro’y sumasaya kapag ika’y kasama!”

For this year’s summer season, Johnson’s Baby has made it their mission to make bonding moments of parents and kids more fun and enjoyable through playtime, even from the safety of their homes. Johnson’s Play Days Laro’y Sumasaya ‘Pag Ika’y Kasama is a call for all parents to get their children to experience the joy of playing together by going back to basics with bonding through active playtime, especially now that families are just stuck at home while at lockdown. It is also important to remember to be there for our kids because this a difficult time for them as well. It is even recommended by the World Health Organization for parents to at least allot 20 minutes of their day as playtime with their kids, as part of their daily routine. This in return will also help create structure and bring back that sense of normalcy for children.



During playtime, whether indoors or outdoors, a mom’s number one worry for their kids is the sweat it brings and along with the unbearable summer heat and the uncomfortable sticky feeling from playing all-day long. With Johnson’s Baby Powder, there’s no need to worry anymore as this helps kids stay fresh & smelling presko-bango for up to 12 hours, all-play long! Even from indoors, mas napapasaya ang playtime with Johnson’s Baby Powder -- making this every mom’s ultimate play time partner allowing their kids to play for longer.



We encourage you to join Johnson’s in this movement and see how bonding through playtime will help your little ones become the person you always dreamed them to be. Join by posting a video of your kids during your happy playtime moments and show that Johnson’s Baby is your play partner to keep your kids Presko Bango. Use the hashtags #JohnsonsPreskoBango, #PlayDays2020 and tag @johnsonsbabyph.

7-day Menu Challenge: Safeguard yourself against COVID-19


It is without a doubt that meal planning has lots of benefits. First, it's less stressful as you don't have to worry about what to cook each day. Second, instead of worrying, you get to save time and spend it on other equally important things. Third, you also get to save money as you only have to buy the ingredients you need, according to your menu, which means less to zero food wasting. Lastly, since you get to plan, you are more likely to choose healthier meals.

Steamed Cream Dory Fillet in Soy Sauce Recipe



I've been a homemaker ever since Jaear and I got married, but until now, meal planning or thinking about what to prepare every meal is still something I haven't mastered. I tried planning our meal weekly, it was great as it helped me save time and from last minute worries. But, the problem is, I keep on listing the same food over and over again. I only know of a few ulam to cook! Haha.

Mother's Day 2020: ECQ Edition


I woke up early today from a long night of sleep. It's one of those rare moments when I get to sleep at night and it feels good! To those who don't know yet, I work-from-home on night shifts from Monday to Saturday. And on Sundays, which is my only day off, I sometimes stay up all night as well. I guess my body clock got used to my work schedule already.

Last- Minute Easter Fun Activities for Kids + Printables


Easter Sunday is surely one of the holidays a lot of kids look forward to. Why not, it's the day that Christ has risen and is worthy of a celebration.

Tristan, Athena, and Brianna are definitely one of those kids. Ever since they found out that it's Holy Week, they were already looking forward to Easter. These past few years, we only celebrate Easter by going out to eat, and just treat the kids with play dates and toys. It's been a while since we had those Easter parties where there are egg hunting, egg painting, and other Easter fun activities.

This year, I planned it to be different. Early this year I was scouting for Easter events we could attend. I actually planned a lot of activities for the kids this summer. I wanted to enroll them in McDonald's Kiddie Crew and also Music School. But, because of the pandemic caused by CoVid-19, all plans were put on hold.

Yesterday, Athena kept on reminding me that it's about to be Easter and seems to be looking forward to some Easter fun! I honestly didn't have a backup plan. We haven't gone out to the grocery for more than a week now and so we don't have any candies and chocolates for today, we have eggs but I didn't want to use it for egg painting because it would be a waste of food. But we got ice cream and some popcorn so I just have to think of last-minute Easter activities to make our Easter exciting. It's what kept me busy most of the day. And, thanks to the wonders of the internet,  we now have something fun to do today!

So if you are looking for last-minute Easter Fun Activities you can enjoy with your kids at home, check this out!

"Get Well Soon" Cards for Covid-19 Patients

Day... of Quarantine Life. I honestly, never counted. LOL.


Last Sunday, I helped Tristan, Athena, and Brianna make "Get well soon" cards for the CoVid-19 patients of Research Institute for Tropical Medicine (RITM). 

I learned about this from Go Jackie Go's IG story and immediately told my kids about it. 

We know too well how hard it is to be sick, being in the hospital alone, with no family around to look after you, or even visit is even harder. And, that is precisely each CoVid-19 patients are going through. I explained this to my kids and I guess that made them more eager to make the cards.

SM is now online: My ShopSM Experience!

Did you know that SM now has its online store? Yes, you read that right! You can now shop the largest department store chain in the Philippines, online anytime, anywhere through shopsm.com. This is good news for people like me who love to shop online, even more so for people living in areas without a mall and would travel to a nearby town or even the Metro just to have access to The SM Store. 

Living in the Metro, you can find SM Malls everywhere, there are 2 SM's in our city alone. That's why it's our go-to-mall, not to mention it offers a wide range of products to choose from, it's not the largest department store for no reason. But with 3 kids in tow, who could be whiny, and unruly sometimes, shopping could be daunting, and the last thing on my list. So online shopping is the way to go!




I found out about ShopSM a day before Christmas, but only got to try it when the New Year came as I was already finished Christmas shopping. I didn't buy anything for myself last Christmas, so I thought of treating myself at the start of the year. So yes, my first ever purchase for the year was from ShopSM, and the experience itself was a total treat!
