October is National Breast Cancer Month

I came across an advertisement about Avon's Walk for Breast Cancer yesterday. When I checked the post and looked for more information, I got sad! The event is already finished. It was held last October 3 at the SM Mall of Asia Open Grounds. How did I miss it?

Aside from being eco-friendly, I am also a breast cancer supporter in my own little way and I have been waiting for this event to show my support to this advocacy. I have seen relatives and family members of my friends passed away because of breast cancer. However, when I personally saw how my friend Mavic Pebte battled and left us because of this dreaded disease, I promised myself that I will contribute to the awareness of this illness.

Pinay Mompreneurs: My Other Blog

I have another blog which I called Pinay Mompreneurs. The niche was inspired by one of my oDesk clients, Jen Dalitz of Sphinxx. The goal of the blog is to feature Filipina enterpreneurs and "mompreneurs" and promote their products and services. Unfortunately, I did not receive any feedback on the invitations for interviews I sent out. Sad... So, I decided to leave the blog and let it die naturally.

Pinoy MD and Doc Oyie

I am an avid fan of magazine shows. I love watching these kinds of shows because I learn a lot from them... some stuff that I can apply in everyday living.

One of the shows my husband and I started to watch every Saturday morning is Pinoy MD. The show basically discusses health facts and provides very rich information on keeping our bodies healthy and how to have healthy lifestyle without spending a lot from your pocket.

Happy Father's Day!

Today, as we honor the fathers in the world, I would also like to honor my husband for being the best father he can be to our children.

And of course, my father for giving us and providing for us while he was still in this world.

I love you both!

Happy Independence Day!

Today, the Philippines commemorates its 112th Independence Day. The Philippines was under the Spanish government for more than 300 years. It was Gen. Emilio Aguinaldo who proclaimed the Philippines as a sovereign republic after they defeated the Spaniards on the Battle of Manila Bay during the Spanish-American War.

As my share of our independence celebration,

Back to the Blogging World

It's been a while! Almost two weeks of absence felt like a lifetime without a post. Naah! It's not I don't have topics and experiences to share, I was just really busy.

With the school year coming in, school-hunting and enrollment added to my already hectic schedule. Being a mom working in the corporate world and having a part-time job at home with three kids to look after, the 24 hours we have each day is not enough. Life has lots to offer and we don't want to miss any of them.

There are also a lot of things running through my mind.

The Day I Fired Our Nanny

As I mentioned in my previous post, I fired out our nanny last Friday. I already reached the point I got so pissed off I will not be able to stand seeing her for another minute longer.

Everything started last Wednesday. When I took a bath that morning, my younger kids also took their morning bath. They have probably missed our bath time together so we took shower altogether. Afterwards, my husband dressed them up. However, when my husband and I arrived later that day, they were still wearing the same clothes! We already explained the rule to her - shower after lunch before their afternoon nap then give them another shower after they played in the afternoon. To answer the questions in our minds, we asked their nanny why she did not give the kids a bath in the afternoon. We asked my niece who is spending vacation with us if the kids took their bath. She said they did not. So, my husband confronted the nanny but shed denied it, giving a lame excuse that my niece was too busy playing in the computer so she did not notice. She also said that she changed Joma's clothes but she did not give him a bath because he does not want to. Duh!

Flowers on my Table

I already mentioned in one of my previous blogs that my daughter loves to pick flowers in the garden and give it to me.

A Very Busy Week

I can't believe it! It has been a week since I last published a post here. The week was very busy I did not notice the days pass by. Time flies so fast!

Tuesday morning surprised us when we received a text message from one of the elders of the CFC_FFL leader we belong. It says in the message that our elder, who is also one of our godfathers in our church wedding, was brought to the hospital because he had a heart attack the night before. Later during the day, we received an update that he was confined at the ICU of Asian Hospital. We visited him at the hospital after office.
