I’m honored to be part of the Mother’s Day video of The Asian Parent Philippines. The video is a mashup of the messages of selected moms to their own moms. I had a hard time writing the letter to my Mom as I couldn’t help my tears from flowing. 😭 Watch the video at Blissful…

30 years of Pabaong Pagmamahal from Lemon Square Cheese Cake

“Where are we going today, Mommy?” This is Tash’s favorite line nowadays. Since I officially became a WAHM (work at home mom, nax!), we’ve been lakwatsa buddies — from swimming lessons to grocery shopping. And since the two of us can’t go hungry while stuck in traffic or while waiting for our turn, I always…

The Venice Grand Canal of Metro Manila ❤️

Weekends are worth waiting for! ❤️ Whether in our bedroom or somewhere outside our comfort zone Quezon City, quality time with these two is a perfect breather.  Out of my 32 years as a QC girl (exagg, I’m definitely older than this mall), it’s my 1st time to visit Venice Grand Canal or Venice Piazza….

Learning about Dental Care for Kids at Tooth Princess Dental Clinic

My latest struggle with our one-year-old was toothbrush time. 😊 Yes, we always fought when I needed to brush her teeth. She cried, ran, and did everything to escape Mommy and the dreaded toothbrush!

How to make the most of your precious time when you have a toddler

Gone were the days when my precious time was all mine — when bath time was long and bed time was longer, when “after work” meant either heading to the nearby spa or changing to my Zumba clothes with my fitness buddies, when Saturday mornings meant snoozing til 10 am.  In my mommy world today,…

Usanimals: Sugar-free chewable Multivitamins for kids at only P18.75 per piece

Millennials like me will surely remember the yummy Flintstones chewable vitamins our parents required us to take back in the 1990s.  The orange-flavored Fred Flintstone was my favorite! As a child, all I knew about vitamins was it prevented me from being sick, it’s sweet, and it’s cool coz it’s Flintstones. Today,  the millennials who…
