My 2-Day Pre-Travel Juicing Detox

It is my second time to go on a detox program. The first one was last year (read about my post here),  after the holidays. This time I detox prior to our family vacation. Since it was no longer my first time, I considered not blogging about it anymore, but since many of you are still interested in the whole experience, here I compiled (and answered) the most frequently asked questions:

5 Reasons Why “Paano Ba ‘To” is A must have for Filipino Parents

“Paano Ba Ito” , written by Filipino Celebrity, Biance Gonzalez, is a book that aims to serve as a guide for teenagers up to young adults on how to handle growing up issues. From the time it was released and even up to now, it remains to be among the best selling books in the country written by a Filipino author.

For my sheer love for books, I bought one and was surprised on how much I like it. It is a given that the book is for the younger generations, but for a parent, here are my reasons why you need to have it too:

A Productive Summer

Today is officially the last weekend of summer vacation for EA. On Monday, school will resume and he will begin his new adventures in 2nd grade. But before we start school, here is what EA was up to during the summer.

Since last year, we had been wanting to enroll EA to Karate so he can learn martial arts. But we were not successful then because EA was so scared of the instructor. I guess he found him intimidating as his voice tends to get loud (but not shouting) whenever he teaches his students. EA also does not like the loud music being played during warm up. We thought he will get over it so we enrolled him but even after 3-4 attendance in class, EA still has not joined any drill and so we decided to cancel his enrollment.

The Royal (Adorable) Siblings Photos Are Out!

Today was filled with so much cuteness when the The Royal Couple, Prince William and Duchess of Cambridge, Kate, release the official photos of their two children together!

I’ve been following Kensington Royal’s Instagram account and I was glued yesterday because in the morning it announced that they will release Prince George and Princess Charlotte’s photos. Well, I did not wait in vain because I was giggling with joy when I saw the photos!

Singapore Vacation 2015

When I opened my blog site to write this post, I was surprised that it has been more than couple of weeks since I last posted an entry. I was not aware that it has been that long. I had been active but only to answer comments or queries which is probably why I did not notice that I have not updated quite that long.

Well, there is not better way to be back than write a post about our recent summer vacation! School is out for two months now and for quite some time we had been planning this trip with our two sons. It was their first time to go out of the country so we were very excited. I will share with you our experience and some tips as well on how we managed 5 days on tour with just the 4 of us (no nanny in tow!).

Lenten Season 2015

As Catholic, Lent is the season when we remember the Passion and Death of Jesus Christ. This is widely celebrated in our country as majority of our population are Catholics.

Daddy S and I are both Catholics and so we wanted to instill our faith to our kids as early as now. This year we had our yearly tradition of Visita Iglesia or praying at seven churches. As we visit these 7 churches, we also did the Stations of the Cross or the journey of Christ to the Cross.

The churches that we visited are:

Photo of the Week: An Inspiration Through and Through

This week’s photo is heartwarming not only the picture itself but the story behind it:

It is to be noted that the Nickelodeon Kids Awards is Angelina Jolie’s first public appearance after her ovarian surgery, which is a preventive measure against cancer. And nope, she did not get slimed, although that will be very interesting if it happened.

Despite the many artists today, either in music, television and movies, Angelina remains to be one of the most solidly influential. She does not have rockin’ concerts or tours, nor does she have yearly teen flick movies, and yet she is never out of the popular circle for both men and women. There is an aura of power in her. Her advocacies, her parenting style and even the way she approaches things in general, are noteworthy of a powerful woman. I hope that a lot of women and teens will see that she is follow worthy. I believe her consistency in what she does is what makes her so real to us despite her popularity. This consistency also makes her so reachable and admirable.

I hope you got inspired with the photo, the way I did! Happy mid week to all of you!
