Freshly Brewed Coffee at home with Silcafe Coffee Blends

I'm a self-confessed coffeeholic and I never thought coffee would become a huge part of my day like it is now.

I'll have a cup of hot coffee 30 minutes upon waking up (it used to be immediately upon waking up), in the afternoon, in the evening, and even past midnight especially when I'm working.

I remember having my first cup of coffee when I was still a student nurse. It was just a 3 in 1 coffee mix but it's what keeps me up all night during my graveyard shifts. So even after not pursuing my nursing career, whenever I smell coffee, I would associate it with my memories in the hospital, which are just some of my best memories.

And, I don't know if it comes with age, or it's just simply the love for coffee, but my taste for coffee has greatly evolved. From 3 in 1 coffee mixes, instant coffee, and now I brew my coffee at home.

So, I am really happy when I received Silcafe Coffee Blends as a gift last Mother's Day. It's my current go-to coffee. It's really good and proudly local.

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.

5 Fun activities that kids can do at home

Mommies tend to be the most tired member of the family especially during school days. We mainly handle getting our kids ready for school, meals, laundry, and even trying to make a living. No wonder an article from Forbes mentioned how our Kids might be the main reason why we are so tired.
