Laundry Tips for Busy Millennial Moms

I have to be honest. I’m no pro when it comes to doing the laundry. When I was single, I honestly had somebody-else do the laundry for me. While I willingly did other chores like home cleaning and dishwashing, I never attempted to do the laundry as I felt that it would consume too much…

Personalized Name Labels for Kids’ Stuff from Sticker Kid

Decades ago, the “back to school season” made my mom extra busy. She spent several hours patiently and lovingly writing our names on our new books and school supplies.  I never understood my mom’s OCness when it comes to putting names on our stuff until I became a mom. I now admit I have inherited…

Children’s Swimming Lessons with Coach Chito Rivera

One of my “frustrations” in life is not being a good swimmer. 🏊‍♀️ Well, if we will stick to the basic definition of “swim” which is to propel one’s body through water, then I can say that I can swim. However, I never learned the proper way of swimming — the correct breathing, arm movements…

Birthday staycation at Seda Vertis North Hotel

I just turned 33! 🎂😎 Thanking God for life and love. 🥰 I really wanted a week-long out of town birthday R&R, but for some reason I could not afford to be away for too long and too far on my birthday week. 🙄 The nearest to what could satisfy this tired mommy’s craving for…

Do you fall into #MalnutritionTraps?

“Pag healthy food, mahal na, matrabaho pa gawin!”   I am guilty of having this mindset.  We often think it’s time-consuming and expensive to prepare healthy food.  When it’s so convenient to just buy an affordable meal in the nearest fast food store, being conscious of what I eat is often taken for granted.  Truth is even busy…

Family Pictorial by Andrea Zubiri Photography

Most of our little family’s photos are not “Instragram-ready”. That’s because my husband just usually takes a quick groupie shot of us while his other hand is carrying our 15kg toddler. 😂 Well, because we don’t have a helper, it’s either we settle with the blurry selfie 🤳 or we beg a random stranger to…
