Imagine working in a world where time seems to just past by and where almost everything changes instantly. Think of having to keep up with an environment where it costs a lot to stop or even slow down for a while. Sound taxing, right? What more of prioritizing the welfare of everybody in the household on top of it all. But every head of the family doesn’t mind about it. Fathers are said to be the pillars of our homes. They toil sun up to sun down to give our needs and desires. Some of them go abroad with tears in their eyes because they will be physically separated from their families. However, there is a certain joy in their hearts knowing that they will be able to provide for their loved ones back home. To honor these gallant paternal men and let them feel how extraordinary they are and…

I started using baby powder every diaper change when my son turned six months old. The contents of the baby powder I used weren’t really my concern until my little one started coughing every morning. His doctor found out it was an allergy and a hundred percent sure it was because of the powder. I am very meticulous when it comes to the cleanliness of the entire house especially in our room so dirt and dust could not be the reason. His pediatrician advised to not use powder with talc. I had trouble finding a talc-free powder to use so I just use cream instead. Although it wasn’t convenient to me, I had no choice. So, what is talc? Talc, as a powder, absorbs moisture well and helps lessen friction, making it useful in keeping the skin dry and in preventing diaper rash. It is a clay mineral with the chemical formula…

My little one will turn three in less than a month, and believe me or not, I still do not have plans nor prepared anything. Unlike the previous birthdays he had, this year will be different. His first and second birthday were not the same too, from the preparations to the budget, everything was different. But both birthdays were a grand. Here, I will enumerate few factors on how to achieve grand birthday celebration without sacrificing too much of your budget. Here, I will enumerate few factors on how to achieve grand celebration without sacrificing too much of your budget. Most of these factors come from what I learned in my son’s first birthday, which I somehow found an alternative on the second birthday. Decorations. On his first birthday, we chose Cars theme. What I actually was buy everything. I literally just bought everything, from balloons,  cake table decorations to celebrant standee. Not wrong, though.…

I’m not a coffee person. I’m already used to letting people around me especially those who I just met know that I don’t drink coffee. Precisely because it’s becoming part of everyone’s generosity to offer coffee to visitors and the like. Sometimes I’m being mistaken as ‘maarte’ (nitpicky), but I’m not. I just don’t drink coffee, and that’s just it. I don’t actually have the perfect reason for that, but here are few things why I don’t need coffee.An alarm clock does its job very well. Consider a snooze. But I don’t need caffeine to wake me up in the morning. Breakfast is perfectly okay and complete without a cup of coffee. I even drink juice during breakfast if I like to. No need for coffee. A hundred pesos or more worth of coffee is a NO for me. I don’t want to spend that much for just a coffee…

I have been an Olay user since 7 years ago. I am still using its 7-in-1 cream and I love how it makes my skin looks younger. When Olay released its new variants of skin whitening soap called ‘One Wash Wonder’, I was able to get the first dibs through Sample Room. This is actually a bit late but would still love to share my thoughts. There are 3 new variants in three different colors, as well. Each bar has different focus ingredients. One has Vitamin C, the other one has Rose and Milk, while the other has Papaya. Difference? The three of them have the same moisturizing effect and each lather very well on your skin. However, the scent of the pink one with rose and milk is very sweet for me. It smells good at first, though. But I don’t like it. It doesn’t smell like a soap…

Last year has been a complicated year for me. Complicated because it made me the happiest person alive but at the same time made me the saddest one. I can’t perfectly explain it, though. But to give you an idea here’s this something I called “Never Give Up”. Never give up on life, on dreams, on family, on friendship, on love, on happiness. We fall, we break down, we cry, we get hurt. It’s like life is a wheel of fortune. We’re laughing now, we’ll cry later. We’re sad now, we’re the happiest the next time. Just deal with it. But whatever that is, what’s important is that we have strong faith in God and never give up on Him for He will never give up on you! My 2016 wasn’t that perfect as everyone thinks it was. Birthday, anniversary! Or the simplest day. And I’m counting. Will there be…

I used to be an outdoor person before I had my son but I haven’t really tried going to a mountain. I haven’t tried visiting any place too that has a temperature below normal literally. Most of the time I opted for beaches to relax and unwind. This year has probably changed my adrenaline. First one to reach was Mt. Hambubuyog located in the municipality of Ginatilan. Getting there actually gives you a couple of choices such as through the roads from Samboan town, Oslob or Ginatilan. You can also opt to trek from Inambakan falls. Mt. Hambubuyog is one of the places I won’t mind always going back. My reasons? Keep reading. . . 1. Majestic. Mt. Hambubuyog’s peak is where the Divine Mercy chapel is also located. It has solemn feelings and it’s a great place to visit when you want to achieve peace of mind. 2. Views.…
