Cleene CLIO Toothbrushes

Making a toddler brush her teeth isn’t easy. I have to make sure she always has a no-ouchy and gentle brushing experience. The toothbrush needs to have soft bristles that are gentle for a toddler’s sensitive gums and teeth. So we tried Cleene CLIO Kiddie Toothbrush. In partnership with Korean toothbrush brand CLIO, Cleene offers…

Yoga for Kids at Kids Yoga Corner

I tried Yoga for the first time when I was pregnant with our daughter Tash. My prenatal Yoga sessions really helped me relax and feel healthy throughout my pregnancy. I can say that it also helped strengthen my preggo body. Back then, I told myself that when my child is already a grownup, I’ll encourage…

Chuckie Icecream Recipe from Nestle Cream

I’m no pro in the kitchen, but I surely enjoy creating easy-peasy culinary creations for the family, especially when I do it as a fun activity that enriches my bond with my daughter. Nowadays, this 3-year-old loves mixing things together and creating something from scratch. So I thought that this is a good opportunity to…

The Library Heiress

More than two decades ago, I was a child growing up in a world with no internet, no fun mobile games, and no video calls. Other than television (Hello Batibot!) and my plastic kitchen toy set, my favorite form of entertainment was my humble collection of storybooks. 📚 Best childhood ever! For decades, my little…

You’ll be safe here

Dear Tash, Mom is scared of the virus that I tell you about. Sometimes, Mom is still feeling weird about our new setup. Most of the time, Mom is tired, trying to balance work and taking care of our home. Despite all that, Mommy will do her best to protect you. Just like Rylie of…

Let your heart design

“Mom, let your heart design,” Tash said to me yesterday while I was busy working. ❤️🖍🎨 I’m not sure if she heard it from one of the children shows she’s been watching, but I really think it’s a catchy tagline or an empowering mantra for the second half of our memorable 2020. 🤓 Surely, the…

DIY Hair Removal and Pampering Products from Strip It

Three months in quarantine, how are your underarms, mommies? 😆 I know it’s not a great topic to talk about, but underarm hygiene is one of our womanly concerns (well, at least in my country). For a woman living in a tropical country, I just feel that hairless underarms are better for personal hygiene. Especially…

Toddler Playgroup with Teacher Ella

Three months ago, we were planning to enroll our three-year-old in a pre-Kinder class. Then Covid 19 pandemic happened, and our plans for our toddler’s education were suddenly put on hold. Just like other parents, our priority is our child’s safety. We don’t want to rush things and push with what was planned if it’s…

HiPP Organic Kindermilk for children 3 yrs and above

When my daughter was 1 year old and I was still a full-time working mom, I used to give my child HiPP Organic baby food. I discovered the brand while checking out the drug store for organic food for little ones.  As a first-time mom, I did my online research about it and found out…

NEW Joy Baby Dishwashing Liquid

Isang patak, tanggal ang sebong sangkatutak! 😍 No doubt, Joy Dishwashing Liquid has provided many homemakers effortless dishwashing experience with just one powerful drop. I can attest to that because as a teenager less than 20 years ago, Joy really made my dishwashing “training” super easy and somehow enjoyable. Now that I’m in my 30s,…

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…

BE IN THE MOMENT: Life lesson from children

In a generation where multitasking has become a way of life, practicing mindfulness is something easier said than done. Though I have read a lot of articles about it and attended quite a few events that promote it, being mindful is still something I find hard to consistently do. As a work-at-home mom, I try…

Susuru Japanese Cuisine at The Pop Up

While we’ve been taught that eating quietly is one of the mealtime manners we should never break, a loud sucking sound while eating is actually fine in Japan. 🇯🇵 Susuru, the Japanese word for “slurping”,  is a sign of appreciation for a meal in Japanese culture.  The slurping is an expression of how much a…

Benefits of Drinking DG Goat Milk

My husband used to tell me that, when he was a child, he only drank goat’s milk. He was allergic to the popular milk brands in the market so his parents made him drink goat’s milk. Based on this picture, I must say goat’s milk made him one very healthy kid! 👍🏻 I used to…
