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.

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…

In a generation where multitasking has become a way of life, practicing mindfulness is something easier said than done.

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…

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…

4 things I learned from being a “helperless” working mom

I’ll share with you my secret frustration these days.  It’s my failure to get a household help, a nanny, a yaya.  Finding a helper is a constant item in my weekly to-do list that I never get to accomplish. It’s a task that neither my online searching nor my husband’s exceptional networking skills can achieve….
