A Mother’s Life Well-Lived, a Priceless Legacy

Edwin Aquino, a retired bank executive, misses most of the family get-togethers that his family used to have--and it's especially poignant this coming Mother's Day. His mom Amelia passed away in 2019, while his dad Pedro Jr. passed on four years earlier. Mother's Day, in particular, was a very special
occasion that they celebrated with gusto.


Being the mom God created me to be

 

“How do you do it?
"How do you get it all figured out?"

Being a working mom to 3 kids, and no helper, I get these kinds of questions and comments a lot. And honestly, I don't know how to answer them.

Celebrate Mother's Month with Andok's Simple Salu-salo


Happiness is waking up next to my family and, to this- a sumptuous Andok's feast waiting on the dining table! I work graveyard shifts and waking up after 3-4 hours of sleep every morning is such a struggle, and here comes thinking about what to cook for lunch or dinner. So this much-needed break from the kitchen 2 days before Mother's Day makes me feel happy and appreciated.

6 Tips to help your child cope with distance learning


Amidst the mandated lockdown brought about by the Covid-19 pandemic, we all have adapted to the "new normal" way of living, and that includes remote learning or distance learning.

While homeschooling is already a thing, the majority of families here in the Philippines are used to school-based learning or traditional education which makes the transition a bit stressful. Some of the factors that contribute to the stress are, not having a stable internet connection, no gadget to use for remote learning, and working parents who cannot monitor their children.

We have our share of challenges and stress as well, but I am saving that topic for another post. This post is intended to share with you some tips to help your kids transition or cope up with distance learning. They may not know how to say it, but kids do feel the stress and pressure too.

Moms are the Protectors of Play



The sudden shift of a mom and kid’s lifestyle has taken significant turns in blurring the lines between work and play. Whether we see it or not, kids experience stress too at a time like this given how they used to go about their day at home with their family or in school with their classmates and friends. Online learning became a big source of frustration among moms and kids, with the demands and adjustments that come in the picture.

Teaching Kids The Value of Money and Saving for their future

I have this memory of me as a kid every Christmas, opening up my alkansya or piggy bank with a big grin on my face.
"Oh, the joy that I'll finally get to buy what I was saving for, that whole year!"
I don't remember how young I was back then, but I know that my parents taught me about saving money at an early age. And that is something Jaear and I are working on with our kids- Tristan, Athena, and Brianna.




It may sound cliche, but as parents, we only want what's best for our children. So aside from providing for their needs, we also equip them with lessons that are not just school taught. And that includes teaching them to have a healthy perspective and attitude towards money and saving, this way we give them a headstart in life.

Salmon HQ's Salmon Cake and Sushi Bake FTW!

My love affair with sushi and sashimi goes way back from my childhood.  

Salmon HQ's Salmon Cake and Sushi Bake.

I grew up in a big family. Both my mom and my dad have like 12 or 13 siblings. (I know!) I was born on my mom's side in Zamboanga but grew up with my dad's side of the family in La Union. And, growing up in a big family means a lot of family gatherings. We gather when there are occasions and we gather almost every weekend. It was really fun, we would sing along to the karaoke, lots of talks and play, and of course, good food which includes sushi and sashimi! Yum!
