Make Brushing More Fun with Minions!

Jun 7, 2017

My kids are no longer babies (not!) and they are do things on their own already.  They are now in their teens, and i don't have to remind them (not all the time, hahaha) to get themselves ready for bed.  But I still can still clearly remember how it was a few years ago when just getting them to brush their teeth was such a pain!  Good thing we made brushing such a fun activity.

Here are some ways how I made it fun for them:
1. Get them nice toothbrushes! When I go to the supermarket, I let them choose their own toothbrush so it doubles as a toy! Something like these Minions toothbrushes will do the trick! You can get these brushes here for you 2-5 years old, and here for your 5-9 years old. 
2. Sing a song.  Either a happy birthday song, or any song will do.  Okay, you can't really sing while brushing your teeth, but you can make noises, hahaha! Or you can do a chant, like Squeeze, Brush and Rinse!

3. Make it into a contest! Dare them to follow the leader, so they mimic what you do, or who can clean their teeth the best.  The kids will get crazy over those.

There are other fun ways to make brushing more fun as long as you let it be an enjoyable activity to look forward to.  

Have fun brushing!




How Have You Changed Over the Years?

I saw this app on Facebook that shows how much you have changed over the years based on your profile pictures. I got older, but I got prettier, hahahah!


PUP Laboratory High School Entrance Exam Results for SY 2017-2018

Update: Here is the link to the results.

My daughter took the PUP Laboratory High School entrance examination last February 18, 2017 and now, we are waiting for the results.  The results are expected to come out on March 17, 2017. I am a PUP alumni (both undergraduate and MBA), my eldest son also passed the college entrance exam and my middle child is now on his 8th grade in PUP Lab High.  So we are keeping our fingers crossed that the youngest will also pass.  But I am sure that is the sentiment of all parents of more than thousands of examinees!
In the meantime, lets all just keep praying for a very favorable result for all of us!

City Buffet Galleria: Could Have Been Better

Jul 29, 2016

Last night, I had a chance to eat again at City Buffet in Robinsons Galleria.  In case you missed it, I did my first review of this palce in 2012 and fast forward to 2016, I didn't think there was an improvement.  Again, I was not paying for the meal because it was a birthday treat and while I thoroughly enjoy the evening with my best friends, I couldn't say the same for the food.

The dinner buffet on a weekday was at P399, inclusive of unlimited drinks.  The aircon was not working so there were huge fans in the dining area.  Only a few tables were occupied, so it was not hot nor unpleasant.

As to the food, here are my plates and I think I have sampled everything except for the pasta and pizza. Of course, my first plate was from the sushi section and I had a piece of everything.  No, they don't have salmon or tuna, only sushi. And they don't have shrimp tempura, only crabstick and vegetable.  I asked, and they said they only serve shrimp tempura during weekends. Hayyyyy!

Anyway, so there was little selection and there were just a few people. But the service was great.  The crew were all smiling, and apologetic when I asked about the tempura, and was very helpful in making the sukiyaki. 

So, again, will I eat at City Buffet again? If free, yes.  But if I were the one paying, I would rather eat somewhere else.



Road to Fab@40

Jul 27, 2016

I will be hitting my 4th decade next year, and so, I am making lifestyle changes today.  I started with a gym membership last April, and a commitment to be Fab@40.  I also plan to run a half marathon before the year ends. Why? Because I would rather spend for gym membership than maintenance medicine.  I would rather out-plank my son and do more push-ups than him. Because, I want to do something today so that I will be more fabulous, and fit, in the next decade of my life! 

This is not easy, but I am half way there as I have already the commitment to work out daily.  Now, if I can only start to eat properly, hahahah!


Happy Birthday, Inay!

My beautiful mother turned 62 last week.  I am very thankful that she is still strong and funny and with her loved ones at this. Sa dami na nyang pinagdaanan, she deserves to be happy.  And I hope to be able to do that for her! I love you, Inay!


Once a Potterhead, Always!

Jul 20, 2016

I posted this picture for an Instagram contest that I joined for the 19th year anniversary of the Harry Potter book series. I am really a fan and have completed the books as gift from my co-workers and from my husband because they knew how much I love them.
As to my favorite quote, this one tops the list.  Although there are so many quotables in the book, I believe that this one is the best. I wish that J.K. Rowling will write more books about Harry, but we all that its not possible.  So just enjoy the books because they are such a great piece of literature.


Link Worth is Still Paying for Ads

Jun 13, 2016

I am happy to report that as of today, Linkworth is still paying for its ads, despite being delayed for more than 2 months, and after many,many emails from me. I have been with Linkworth since 2012 but have only written a few paid posts over the years and then just recently, in March this year. Then, come April, they said I have been paid, based on the payout invoice but it took a lot of emails for them to finally pay me last week. But hey, better late than never, right?  


Yey, I now have seed money for my Hong Kong trip next year!
