5 Absolutely Free Online Video Games for Titas and Moms

I’m no gamer, but I occasionally played quite a few video games when I was still a carefree bachelorette (circa 1990s-2014). From Battle City and Super Mario to Plants vs Zombies and Diner Dash, I enjoyed playing games at home as a way to relax at the end of a long day at school or…

Bust the Germumus with NEW Downy Antibac+ Fabric Spray

My latest role? I’m the official “Germumu buster” at home! 👻 Germumus are the scary unseen germs living in hard-to-wash fabrics! They’re secretly staying on our sofa, curtains, beddings, mattresses, carpets, bags, and shoes! 😱 The problem is that we can’t afford to clean these things every day. I’m glad I found a way to…

McDonald’s Happy Meal Minion Toys

Tash loves surprises, so we surprised her by letting the minions invade our home!

She had fun looking for all the Minion toys hidden in different parts…

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.

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…

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…
