ERCEFLORA PROBIBEARS

Image
We all know that probiotics are good for us. These live microorganisms help maintain the balance of good and bad bacteria in the digestive tract, aiding in digestion and defending the body against illness.
This is why Yakult is still alive – and has competition! This is why yogurt remains to be popular. This is why probiotics can be seen in a lot of products lately.
The good news for parents is that there is now Erceflora ProbiBears, a supplement that has not just Lactobacillus acidophilus but also Bifidobacterium lactis. The former treats infant colic and helps improve immunity while the latter helps ease bloating and flatulence. Together they help prevent gut problems such as diarrhea, an upset tummy, and other digestive illnesses.
What’s good is that Erceflora ProbiBears have the right amount of probiotics your child needs every day.

And oh, they taste good! I myself tried one and it doesn’t taste like medicine at all. It’s like cookies and cream-flavored chocolate, and Sadako ag…

#CHEEZWHIZCHEESEVENTIONS

Image
Sadako and I recently got invited to the #CheezWhizCheeseventions event of Cheez Whiz and of course we said yes!
Before the program started, Sadako had some time to be part of fun activities.

She was tasked to spread Cheez Whiz on bread, and it was so cute to see her focused and competitive even if she was JUST SPREADING CHEEZ WHIZ ON BREAD.
She had to pose beside a standee of Cowcium (love the name!), the Cheez Whiz mascot.

And she had to write something on the freedom wall (she doodled, actually).

After all those she got a goodie bag. She took a peek and said wow when she saw all the Cheez Whiz products inside because she loves anything cheese so much.

The main activity was a cooking demo with Chef DJ Santos plus Bettinna Carlos and her daughter Gummy.


The first dish was a ham and cheese sandwich tower. Sadako customized hers to look like Rapunzel’s tower, complete with Rapunzel’s hair – made of Cheez Whiz, of course.


The second one was much simpler – cupcakes topped with Cheez Whi…

#EDENCOMFORTFOOD

I rarely cook at home for Sadako. It’s always someone else – or dine-out/take-home/delivery.
So when I actually do I make sure it’s special and it’s something she likes. Plus it should be easy!

Eden recently sent us a goodie basket containing comfort food ingredients and I am so excited to make some yummy snacks for the family.
Mac and cheese is one of Sadako’s all-time faves, while sardines sandwich is something I don’t get to regularly eat but sounds really good.

I really hope they Sadako will like what I’ll prepare coz nothing says I love you like home-cooked comfort food. Buti na lang they look easy to do. Check out the recipes below.
MAC AND CHEESE
3 tbsp, butter 2 tbsp, flour 2 cups milk 8 oz, shredded Eden cheese 2 cups, elbow macaroni
Heat oven to 350F. In a saucepan, melt butter over low heat. Add flour and stir until bubbly. Gradually stir in milk then bring to a boil over medium heat. Stir constantly and bring to a simmer over low heat for 5 minutes or until it thickens. A…

THE SOLANE MOTHER’S DAY VIDEO GAVE ME SERIOUS FEELS

Image
It was Mother’s Day last week so I want to share with you this touching Mother’s Day video from Solane. I don’t wanna spoil it for you so just watch. Suggestion: ready some tissue or your hanky.


Are you crying right now or ARE YOU CRYING RIGHT NOW???
I know I am ugly crying right now!
It’s so sweet and touching and beautiful and relatable and sad and inspiring all at the same time.
I love the message of the video; it’s so simple but it’s so strong: FOR THE ONES YOU LOVE, GIVING UP IS NOT AN OPTION.
I’m sure a lot of people can relate to it, especially parents. Whether it’s assembling that LEGO spaceship composed of thousands of pieces just to put a smile on your kid’s face, or working overtime for five days straight just to earn extra money for the family, or even something supposedly simple like cooking your little ones’ favorite sinigang na baboy just coz they have a sudden craving for it, you do it – no matter how difficult or tiring it is – for the ones you love.

I myself can rel…

HOW TO MAKE SLIME USING INGREDIENTS FOUND IN THE PHILIPPINES

Image
Last year Sadako discovered slime through watching slime videos on YouTube.
Naturally she wanted me to buy her slime – all the time.
At first I had a hard time looking for the stuff.
I found this small tub of Noisy Putty in Fully Booked and while it was entertaining because it made all these fart sounds, it wasn’t the super stretchy kind that Sadako saw in a lot of the YouTube vids she watched.
Toy Kingdom/Toys ‘R Us didn’t have any, too; all they had was kinetic sand. However, they had this DIY slime kit that we bought and tried at home, but it was an epic fail.
One day my officemate told me she saw some slime in UP Town so I told her to buy me some for Sadako. The next time I saw her she handed me these small cheap-looking tubs of slime (well, they were cheap). I judged them instantly and thought Sadako would just try them for a minute and then throw them away. As it turned out, they were exactly like the slime she saw on YouTube!
Eventually Sadako wanted us to make our own slime…

KIDDY’S ARTS TOWN

Image
We love going to the mall as a family. As in we go to the mall at least once a week.
What do we do? We eat, we buy Sadako a toy, and we window shop. That’s pretty much it.
It becomes a routine sometimes and it can be a little boring so we love it when there’s a free show or an exhibit or some other fun event.
Recently we found a cool activity place called Kiddy’s Arts Town inside Landmark Trinoma. It’s an art activity place where kids can have fun developing their creativity. They have a lot of activities like DIY bags, sand art, and woodcrafts, but their most popular one is something called Color Buddy.

Color Buddy is actually a coloring activity using paint inside little plastic bottles. The kid chooses a pattern, fills it in with paint, and then the artwork is baked so the finished product can be used as a sticker that you can bring home and put on mirrors or windows.

There’s a lot of designs to choose from such as animals and cartoon characters (Pokemons, Angry Birds), plus enou…
