Asus Zen 100050mAH Powerbank is now less than a thousand pesos worth or a little over Php500.00. A powerbank has become part of our daily essentials, especially if you want to be spared from worrying if you have enough battery for your phones/gadgets before you step out of the house. It is a bonus to find one that has enough power but can be as small as something you would fit in your pocket.

Lazada PhilippinesFour-person dome camping tent at 75% off Kids’ summer camp and even camping right outside your backyard or rooftop will no longer be a hassle. Can fit four adults in, it is surely a steal to be priced at Php500.55.

Joined Eyebrowdery’s Bloggers’ Day

I may not be the beauty-queen-type of mom but I have always been thankful about the way I look. I am sure the other mommies reading this post will also identify with me if I say that how I look is the last thing on my mind on a regular mommy-day. But there can be times when you would play in your mind how you want to look with long, curly hair, longer eyelashes, fairer skin or flatter tummy (that’s me, thinking out loud).

And so it was encouraging to have known that Eyebrowdery was established to offer the most innovative way of putting permanent make-up on mommies’ beautiful faces, with materials coming from all natural plant extracts, organic, environment friendly and 100% safe.

picture1Definitely liking their nails services with regular manicure, gel manicure, chrome nails and nail whitening services offered. There is also the Little Onesies Princess Treatment that will allow your small daughters to enjoy mani/pedi services with mommy.

picture2Make-up embroidery has become known in fashion forward countries like Singapore, Korea, Hong Kong, Japan and a whole lot more. Miss Klarisse Tabao (pictured above), CEO of the Eyebrowdery, who has keen sense in beauty, fashion, and who is naturally ‘kikay’, took up classes in Singapore from a very famous school when it comes to embroidery, Aesthetics International Academy.

Got to observe a 3D Eyebrowdery treatment on the bloggers’ day and it was interesting to see the model’s face accurately assessed for its shape to go with the best eyebrow contour.

picture3Eyebrowdery, unlike tattoo, is a semi-permanent treatment that may last from 2 to 5 years. It is done by adding natural colored pigment from plant extracts to the skin. Klarisse started tracking out the area first and showed the model if it matches her desired brow shape and color. The entire area is then filled with hair-like pigments giving the brows a full and flawless look.

picture4 picture5 picture6Another model went for Eyeliner Tinting, great option when you find it hard to use an eyeliner pencil. It is a semi-permanent cosmetic procedure that may last from 4 to 6 weeks.

picture7 picture8Whatever treatment you decide to go for, mommies, please know that we are all wonderfully and fearfully made by God. Eyebrowdery shares the vision of enhancing our God-given looks and how to make moms’ lives easier by providing a quicker way of completing your beauty upkeep.

Please follow this page for more about Eyebrowdery as I try eyebrow threading service in the coming weeks.

Eyebrowdery is at Unit 201 Fox Square Building 53 Connecticut St. Northeast Greenhills San Juan City. Book appointments at 7517236.

Joined PhilCare’s Health and Wellness Tea Party

No matter what role you play at home, at work, in the community, for your loved ones, friends and colleagues, one utmost need is required : perfect health. There is no way that we can deliver the best we can if we do not feel well. PhilCare on its 33rd anniversary, invited 20 blogger moms (including myself) to an intimate tea party in celebration of health and wellness.

2015-06-24 21.07.21
It was a breath of fresh air to have met PhilCare Senior Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer Patty Henson. She asked relevant questions that had all the mommy bloggers thinking how well we are and how prepared we are for the future. PhilCare certainly feel the same mom-needs of being on top of everything that concerns family, particularly, health. And so the afternoon started with delectable food from Chateau 1771 but the afternoon got better when PhilCare started handing out the perfect gift for my mom – an Php80,000 medical coverage. God has been so faithful in keeping us all healthy, safe and protected and He also grants blessings of health through medical provision and coverage but this one is an even more pleasant surprise because it is something I can have my mom use.

picture2Now everyone can have access to a competitive medical coverage plan without having to sign up to an employment contract, without having to step out of the house, and without even having to break your budget. It takes as easy as 3 steps.

Step 1: Online purchase of cards at Just as how you would do a regular online purchase, you would end your web session with no less than medical coverage in tow.

Step 2: Cards get delivered nationwide. Now the demands of your family role or your job will never have to take you away from good health, you have just spared yourself from signing too many forms, and even from lining up for medical exam requirements.

Step3: SMS Activation – Now this is the easiest part. Send an SMS and you should be ready to use the card anytime you need to. What I like most about it is I can give it to my mom as a gift, without her having to worry about activation or more paperworks.

PhilCare, one of the first health maintenance organization (HMO), truly knows how to make things easier for mommies like me. I went home with the gift of health, not just for myself but also more than enough to share with my mom. PhilCare partners with mommies to commit to a healthier lifestyle, I also got to take home a mommy-pampering-kit.

What I Thank God About For the Father of My Kids

I grew up with the best dad in the world, the best dad who would take the time to take me to my first day high school, who encouraged me to be at my best at all times, who lovingly has always told me that I can sing (even if I can’t, *wink*). And so it is truly a big blessing to have met an equally kind and loving husband who does the same now for my kids. Look at what I have been meaning to write all week, below I listed just some of the things we appreciate about the dad in our house.

dadkyleThank you for childhood memories – You’ve climbed up trees with the kids, taught the boys how to swim, took them to laser tag games, joined them for Me and My Dad camps, showed up and presented for school’s “What Does my Dad do at Work”, helped build lasting memories of visiting new places, exploring beaches, and showing everyone (including myself) that it is fun and easy to travel with kids.

dadgabThank you for date days with each of the kids – Thanks for always being handy to help with Math homeworks, getting them involved with dad stuff in the house (e.g. carpentry, car wash, etc), for involving them with what you do, for playing with them, for pushing to have at least three dinners at home with the kids each week. Big thanks for showing us that being a dad means being there for them when they are ready to talk about their days.

dadsofiaThank you for taking care of the girls in the house – Thanks for showing Sofia what her identity is through the love you show me, thanks for sleeping with her and sharing things that are exclusive to just Sofie and Dad, thanks for sharing the breakfast table with the kids. Thanking God because you are not afraid to ask for a kiss or to say ‘I love you’ and ‘sorry’ to kids.

daddavidThank you for being the leader in the house – Thanks for leading us at all times how it is to love God, to wake up early and open your Bible. Thanks for opening the house to people who help us train our kids with the way they should go, for always surrounding us with people who have Godly counsel, for being a dad to other kids, for being a great and loving son yourself.  Thank you for fathering others that are never dependent with what you do, Kids teachers, Coordinator family, Amazing sisterhood and brotherhood of travelling redundance (longest group name, ever), Nova and SJDM. Ultimately, thank you for making your family your first ministry.



dadcollageHappy fathers’ day to all the dads! Watch our fathers’ day greeting here.

Joined KidZania Go! at Rockwell Tent


Do you remember the days past when a student does not get prepared for what course to take in college until your final year in highschool? Long waiting game is over because as early as childhood, your kids can be guided what they want to become and what they want to be trained for, when they grow up. This is where KidZania Manila can help mommies like me. So off we went to KidZania Go!, a sneak peak experience on what KidZania Manila has to offer. KidZania Manila is set to open soon at Bonifacio Global City.


Since the teaser event had all kids join an hourly session, the 2pm session started with gathering all of the kids to work with art materials. Kids were given crayons and coloring sheets to complete and to have the first glimpse of what KidZania is all about. What I appreciate is the teacher ratio. They assigned a significant number of teachers to help the kids go around the booths, complete the activities, sanitize hands, tie up aprons and even help mommies take pictures.


Beebop’s Gallery is where the afternoon started, with my kids handed aprons to wear, paintbrush and paint palette to use. Kids chose to paint on the walls or on the tables. My kids got busy painting a chandelier spot on the wall. Teachers handed them mini-slides to color as soon as they are done.

urbanoUrbano the scientist took them all to the Science lab. Kids sure looked so cute wearing lab gowns and gloves before proceeding with the experiment for the day. They tried their hands on mixing ink, water and oil and got a mini Science-class/explanation around the activity.


Chika who has the will to share, encouraged kids to step into her bakeshop kitchen. With hair caps and aprons in tow, kids were given ingredients to a frost-it-yourself cookie sets. With the Kidzania jingle playing, it was not too long before kids started singing along and greeting each other bye with : Zee you! as they all prep to go to the next learning area.



Now Vita, is the agriculture advocate. Kids’ hands got dirty with soil, shovel, plants and mini-watering cans. All of these while donning farmers’ hats. By the way, everything that kids got to prepare, they got to bring home, too.



Finally, it was time to meet the one who completes the KidZania team, Bache dog – and showed everyone how it is to have the will to play. All KidZania character mascots showed up onstage, sang and danced to the KidZania jingle.


Among the highlights of the day for me, was seeing my kids Gab and Sofia sign up on the KidZania Go! wall, answering the question: “What do you want to be when you grow up?” Sofia whose love for Science was driven home by Urbano, signed her name with Doctor before it, while Gab whose love and admiration for his Daddy had to wrote Pastor Gab. KidZania committed to have more profession booths ready in time for opening this year.


Declaring God’s promise for the great future awaiting kids of today’s generation:

Psalm 103:17 ESV But the steadfast love of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting on those who fear Him, and His righteousness to children’s children.

Joined Diva Channel’s High Heeled Warriors Talk

Women come in all shapes and sizes, women also get to play different roles, women are unique and does not conform to any stereotype, thus is the mix of women attendees on the High Heeled Warriors Talk presented by Diva Channel and Lactacyd at Rockwell Power Plant.


It was interesting to get to know Lactacyd’s High Heeled Warrior Personality: Heartwarmers, Social Sider, Passionista, Trailblazer and Peacekeeper. Fully identified with being a Heartwarmer who are known to be sociable, optimistic and content, mostly needs a wardrobe update and needs to budget for it, too.


Among the highlights of the event was hearing the speakers talk around their strengths as women movers and shakers.  My fave, of course, were the high-heeled mommy warriors Lani of Tweenselmom, Louisa of Art of Being a Mom, Joy of Joybites. They all showed us how to excel in our mommy gifting without sacrificing what we need to complete for our respective families. Also appreciated how they talked about their life adjustments to mommyhood, loving what they do – blogging, and their success story, attributed to a strong support group of mommies who all work at being the best moms in the house.


Sisters Danah and Stacy Guttierez of Plump Pinays also shared about body love and feeling flawsome. It is when you recognize that you are beautifully and wonderfully created by God with a special set of giftings (unique to each other). They help create women who do not strive to be perfect or who do not support anything that drives the wrong mindset around how women look like. These sisters helped drive home the point that it is okay to be different and it is okay to be a different size, after all, confidence comes from knowing who you are before God and what you can become out of what you do with your giftings.


Proverbs 31:26 She opens her mouth with wisdom, and the teaching of kindness is on her tongue.
