Happy New Year!!!

Pahabol mga besh! Happy New Year to all of you!!!

2018 na mga bes! Another year na naman for all of us! 

It is this time of the year na naman when almost everyone is preparing and/or declaring their New Year's Resolutions, just like me! hehehehe... 

But before I go on further with my resolutions this year, let me first share my gratitude to the year that has just recently bid goodbye, the year 2017. You may now be a history, but all the blessings, experiences and memories that you made possible will now all be part of who I am today and of my future that has yet to come! Deep! Char! :) 

Kidding aside, I am really very thankful because once again, I survived another year! Thank you Lord for always giving me the strength! And to all the people that helped me throughout this year (kilala nyo na mga sarili nyo, di ko na iisa-isahin!), thank you all so much!

But of course, I also give enormous credit to my forever partner in life, my husband! Thank you so much bi for standing by beside me! Our relationship may not be that picture-perfect, but I know that we are strong and united enough to overcome all the trials that will still come our way. I love you! (Cheesy na ba?!) :) Thank you to my two angels for always bringing out the best and worst in me! hahahaha! I love you both so much! :)

So now, let's go to my resolutions...

I know, madami pa rin ako kapalkan last year! hahaha Despite my efforts to really do my best and act my best, madami pa rin akong sablay. So for this year 2018, I would really make extra efforts to avoid those sablay moments! Good luck sa akin! :) Ano-ano ba yung mga sablay moments na tinutukoy ko? Well, balato nyo na sa akin yung mga yun! :)

Another resolution... Will really try my best to be more active on blogging! Haist! I really love to post as regularly as possible, pero hindi kinakaya ng katawang lupa ko mga bes! huhuhu Lalo pang nakadagdag sa stress ang "continuous trial" namin sa work kaya naman pagdating sa bahay, konting kilos lang, borlog na ang lola nyo! kaloka! Sign of aging na rin yata to! Di ko rin kasi kayang magpuyat mga bes! wah! But for this year, pipilitin ko talagang maglaan ng oras to update my site! That's a promise! :)

Mas magpapakabait na po ako! This is another of my New Year's resolution! hahaha 

Minsan naman kasi, kahit gustuhin kong magpakabait, parang ang hirap! hahaha Lalo't nasa katwiran ka, parang ang hirap lang mag- give way pa din! haist! But to avoid more negativity in my life, I will really, really try my best to be more understanding, to be more forgiving! Please guide me, Lord! :)

Last but not the least, I will try to spend more quality time with my family! We lost another member of the family last year. He might not be that very immediate family member,  but we really consider him dear and his death really shocked us. Biglaan kasi ang pagkawala nya. Life is really filled with uncertainties. What we have now may no longer be around tomorrow. So, I really want to make the best of what I have right now - that is my family and friends! So for this year, I will really make it a point to spend more time with them! Will be planning more travel escapades! Hahahaha Gusto lang palang gumala! lol! But hey, wala namang masama. Mas masarap naman talagang mag-explore kasama ang family and friends, di ba?! I know you all agree naman to this, right?! :) So, hello Philippines and hello World! Yay!

So, that's all folks! Ayoko nang dagdagan pa at baka lalo lang akong mahirapan sa pagtudpad ng mga resolusyong ito! ahhaha 

Thank you so much for taking your time to read my very first post for the year 2018! Please do keep coming back as I really promise to update my blog regularly from now on! :)

Again, goodbye 2017 and Hello 2018!

Mommy Bloggers Shared The Love To Kids In Marawi Through Nutri10Plus Syrup Vitamin Blog Campaign

One of the outstanding qualities of mothers is their devotion to provide quality nutrition to their children. And this, they make primarily possible by preparing healthy foods and giving effective supplements to sustain and nourish their children. And this is where Nutri10Plus Syrup comes to the rescue. Nutri10Plus, a multivitamins packed with Chlorella Growth Factor (CGF), Taurine, Lysine, Zinc and Vitamins C, A, D3 B1 and more,  had been assisting mothers all around the Philippines in developing children with strong bodies, active brains and healthy appetite.

Of course, we are all aware of the devastating crisis that took place in Marawi. With the government's determination to put an end to the  terrorism that has long been endured by its residents, casualties are unfortunately inevitable. But thank God, there are still many angels out there who are always ready to extend a helping hand. Mommy Bloggers Philippines, in the effort to help our co-mommies and their children in the war-stricken village in Marawi, 100 Mommy bloggers from  our community had collaborated to bring boxes of Nutri10Plus Syrup,  DayCee Vitamin C Syrup and several toys, to a hundred kids in Marawi through SinagTala, a non-profit organization headed by Ms. Kaye Koo. SinagTala had been sending help to villages in Marawi since the war erupted and it had sheltered hundreds of children inside the Playroom which served as the mini-school and play area of the children.

Uni-Pak Mackerel Pasta Recipe & a Giveaway! (Updated & Extended!)


Pasta-lover. Well, you can call my hubby that. It doesn't really matter much what sauce you topped his pasta with, he will still definitely prefer that compared to any rice meals! 

And so, because I love him so much and because I wanted to serve him and my kids a healthy meal, a brilliant idea came into my mind! Ting! Now, I know what to do with my Uni-Pak Mackerel (though, kung ako lang, mainit na kanin lang ang katapat nito! hahahaha). Instead of making use of our usual recipe - tuna, I used mackerel for my pasta dish. And I am just so glad that I tried this recipe because my daughters, especially my husband loved it!

Kaya mga momshies, try niyo din ang recipe na'to! This is definitely one proof that one shouldn't be settled with the things that we are already used to. Try to experiment from time to time and you will realize that "hindi basta nakasanayan, the best na yan!" We should always remain on the lookout on how can we better serve our love ones! And mga momshies, do remember too, that "basta Mackerel, dapat tatak UniPak!" para wala kang pagsisisihan!

Below is the simple recipe of my Mackerel Pasta, go ahead and try it  momshies! :)

 Mackerel Pasta Recipe



1 can Uni-Pak  Mackerel in Natural Oil
250 grams fettucine
3 tbsp olive oil
5 cloves garlic, diced
2 onions, diced
1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley
1 small bell pepper, diced
salt (and/or patis) & pepper


1. In a pot, cook the pasta according to package instruction. Reserve
2. Empty the pot then add oil and saute onion, garlic, bell pepper over  medium heat, stirring constantly until the garlic and onion turns brown.
3. Add the mackerel. Crushed the meat into pieces. Do not add the oil yet.
4. Add salt and pepper.
5. Put the pasta. 
6. Add the oil (of the mackerel). Toss the pasta lightly until the sauce thickens.
7. If the pasta seems to be dry, you can always add olive oil.
8. Add the parsley and toss to combine all ingredients.
9. Put in a platter and serve.

Very easy, right?! And as a bonus, I will also be hosting a very easy giveaway and I really hope that you will all join! :)

Nailaholics Celebrates #NationalPamperingDay Again!

Everybody deserves some pampering every now and then. And this is especially true for us women, most importantly, us mothers! With all the responsibilities and duties that we all have to juggle everyday, we mommas definitely deserve a day off! 

But what really excited me more is the fact that we are not alone in this belief. Nailaholics Nail Salon and Spa is one of us too! Yay! Mr. Arvin Amaro, the Marketing Head of Nailaholics Nail Salon and Spa said,  “We Filipinos are very hardworking in any given aspect of our lives and a nation of energetic and industrious people best deserves real pampering once in a while."

And to live up to this belief, and as a way of giving back to their valued patrons, Nailaholics Nail Salon and Spa is again treating its clients to a day of pampering as it once again celebrates National Pampering Day for the 2nd time with the hope to remind and encourage everyone to take it slow, take it easy, zone out and relax for a while.

When it comes to pampering on a national scale, Nailaholics Nail Salon and Spa holds the only spot. Yes, you read it right mga beshie, nag-iisa lang sila!  And yes again, buong bansa ang sakop ng event na ito! Bongga di ba?! Ibang level na talaga!

After introducing the celebration of the National Pampering Day last year, Nailaholics is back again this year with an amplified nationwide celebration of relaxation that everyone is looking forward to this October 17, 2017. Yes, it's just a matter of week from now mga beshie! So better mark and save this date on your calendar now because I am pretty sure that this is an event that you don't want to miss! :)

Last year, Nailaholics offered free manicure services and stress relieving hand massages from 10 AM to 12 NN on all their branches nationwide. This year, everyone will be treated to a free service of their choice: a soothing manicure, calming foot spa or a relaxing foot massage. May options na mga beshie! Yay!

But what's more exciting in this year's #NationalPamperingDay is the fact that Nailaholics will be accommodating more guests this year with the extension of pampering time until 1PM! Another yay! :)  Also, the best thing about this year’s National Pampering Day is that it will be in support to World Vision, The Philippine Animal Welfare Society (PAWS), and Save Philippine Seas. O di ba, pampering with a purpose! 

So there you have it ladies and gentlemen, save the date -  October 17, 2017 (Tuesday) from 10 AM to 1 PM and be ready to be pampered by allowing Nailaholics’ skilled nail technicians to take care of you for a little while.  Treat yourself to a free relaxing manicure, foot spa or foot massage and walk out of this Hamptons-inspired nail salon feeling refreshed and ready to bring it on again.
