Doña Elena Olive Oil Presents US Master Chef Season 8

Back when we had cable in our bedroom, I would always watch US Master Chef on Star World. I love the exciting surprises that every challenge brings to the aspiring Master Chef cooks! I also enjoy watching the kids version of the show, but there’s much more thrill when you see adults under pressure! Doña Elena Olive Oil brings the Philippine airing of US Master Chef Season 8, set to premier tomorrow, June 8, 2017 at 8:00 PM on Star World. Mexican-American Chef Aaron Sanchez, who is a James Beard award winner, will be joining acclaimed pastry chef Christina Tosi …

Colgate-Minions

Make Brushing More Fun with Minions!

With Jacob slowly loosing all (AND I MEAN ALL, he has lost around 8 so far!) his baby teeth since he was 5 years old, it’s so important to re-emphasize the importance of brushing his teeth. And when Wacky turned 2, we switched him from baby toothpaste to Colgate Junior toothpaste. Brushing the boys’ teeth can take so much of our remaining energy by nighttime. About 3 months ago or so, I saw these cute Minions toothbrushes at SM Hypermarket. It was around the time the boys’ toothbrush were due to be replaced, so I got the pack of two …

Jacob’s 6th Birthday at Kidzania Manila

We’re a bit late to the party, but it was Jacob’s first time at Kidzania Manila when we took him last month to celebrate his 6th birthday. I can’t believe this boy is already SIX years old. I keep on saying that on my social media because I really can’t believe it. I have a SIX year old. I’ve been a Mom for SIX years. *tears of joy* We went on a weekday and luckily, Kidzania Manila had a Special Achievers rate for all tickets purchased and redeemed between March 16, 2017 to June 30, 2017. 35% discount to all …

Fucidin: Our Partner Against Wound Infection

Last March, I finally shared to you Wacky’s amazing eczema journey here and here. I didn’t exactly mention what was in his compound cream from Dr. Aron because each patient has his/her own mixture based on the condition of the skin. But we have been using Fucidin for a long time now and it’s super effective for Wacky’s eczema whenever there are open wounds that are susceptible to staph infection. I was invited to the Moms Unite Against Wound Infection event held last May 2, 2017 but I didn’t get to make it. My mommy friend and fellow blogger, Frances …

Jacob’s Sing Cake Featuring Johnny

At the swim party last weekend, Jacob also had a cake his 6th birthday and it was gorgeous! He was so happy with it! This Sing cake featuring Jacob’s favorite character from the movie, Johnny, was made by Clarissa of Niji Desserts. The flavor I chose for his cake was chocolate chip cookie dough! Super yummy! The photo doesn’t do justice to how good it taste! The other cake and cupcakes were also from Niji Desserts. They were custom Frupcakes with fondant letter sticks and the graduation cake is vanilla with buttercream frosting (I think!). I super recommend Niji Dessert. …

Casa-de-Alegria-Review

Cough, Fever and Allergy Triggered Eczema Flare Up

It’s been a while since I shared a story here and it sucks that it’s going to be a rant, but I just had to share. Last Saturday, Oscar’s side of the family had a big joint celebration at Casa de Alegria in Marikina for all the birthday celebrants and graduates. I found this place via Google and after a visit, it was decided this would be a nice place for the party so relatives from Marikina and Pasig will have an easier time going to the party. It seemed well kept and obviously, we were assuming to see it …
