Top 5 hairstyle for mommies

Just because you need your a mother doesn't mean you feel forget being stylish. Style doesn't really mean in your clothes or wearing make-up all the time. A mother can be fashionable and beautiful by just her hairstyle whether you're outside on the 

When you are pregnant with your baby, it is said the nutrients your hair need is being transferred to the baby instead. So you will notice your hair won't grow so long and you will need to cut it. But still remember whether you want to your hair remain or you cut it short, there are different style you can enjoy with.

Here are the Top 5 hairstyle for mommies:

1. Wear a hairband 

There are a lot of different cute-design in using hairbands when you go out on reunions, with your friends or have a day with your baby. This doesn't a minute to style it up, just comb your hair, put the hair band and you're ready to go to start your day. There are also hairbands matches for you and your baby styles. 

St. Patrick, the comfort that baby needs.

For first-time mommies such as myself, I don't know what are the perfect items or things needed for child care. Advice from my friends and family says if I am on a tight budget I can  buy my child's stuff in Divisoria, but I'm not so sure if that's really safe for my baby. At first, I listened and bought things from Divisoria, but after a few weeks, I started to notice rashes on my baby's skin. We all know that a baby's skin is far more sensitive than adults. I knew right and there that it has something to do with the clothes I bought. So I research online about the baby's clothes and things, I came across the St. Patrick baby wear

The idea of St. Patrick Baby wear when a mother thought: "where can she find the perfect clothes for her perfect baby boy?" The mother wanted to produced baby clothings from 100% cotton but this things are hard to come by. So she decided to open a company it may be a bit pricey for some of us but it is every mother's wish to have the most comfortable baby clothes for our child. 

My Top 5 FlipTop Philippines Battle Emcees

I recently became a fan of the world of FlipTop. For those who doesn't what FlipTop or FlipTop Battles, it is the The First Philippines Rap Battle League. It is a underground rap battle contest usually joined by amateur/recreational rappers. It is established here in the Philippines in February 2010 by The president and Father of the FlipTop is Alaric Riam Yuson or better known as "Anygma".

Fliptop became a reputable in the Hip Hop society because of the power of Youtube. It is said to be represent as a Balagtasan, where two rappers are rutted against one another in a fight of a freestyle rap. In every fight there are three rounds and the winner will be determine by a board of judges. 

The battles are alienated into two divisions: Filipino Conference, which uses the Filipino language and English Conference, which employ the English language. It is said that The Filipino Conference is sub-divided into regional divisions (Metro Manila, Central Luzon, CALABARZON and Mindanao).

Battle emcees have a lot of style of words and rhythmic flows. The most highly assessment by the judges are in the lyricism and delivery of lines in the battles. But the main goal of the battlers is bashing their opponents' notions with their own bars and expletives.

Make-up Transformation Memes

When they say "Make-up Transformation", what we always think of is the transformation the before and after putting a make-up. It is true what they say when you here the words: "Looks can be deceiving" but in these saying it is more on the personality side of the person. But with the magic of make-up, you can really say this words without hesitation.

Make-Up Transformation started in an Korean/Chinese show about how the magic of make-up can do wonders. With a touch of mascara, eyeliner and Kpop contact lenses, you can look like this in a few minutes:

But right now, the make-up transformation has evolved into much funnier trend. Usually, the transformation are just two panels the before and after putting a make-up. When it became a trend meme, the transformation is using make up on the first three panels and on the final panel is the famous person whether it's a actor or singer. There are others who uses Disney characters or movie characters for their meme transformation. Whats your make-up transformation? :)

Dingdong Dantes asks Marian Rivera to be his forever

Then the LORD God made a woman from the rib he had taken out of the man, and he brought her to the man.  The man said, "This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called 'woman, ' for she was taken out of man."  For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they will become one flesh. - Genesis 2:22-24

This verse doesn't really mean that man has fewer rib bones than women. Men and women have the same rib bone count of course. It also is related to the series "Ang Babaeng Hinugot sa Aking Tadyang" in english The girl from my ribs or the girl pulled out from my ribs. Aired on GMA network from February 2, 2009 – May 29, 2009. The stars for this show is long-time couple (on-screen/off-screen) Marian Rivera and Dingdong Dantes.

How to handle: JEALOUSY

In every relationship in family or partner, jealousy is a common thing. This green-eyed monster is the desire to get rid of any competitors stand in your way. Sometimes, jealousy can target anyone like your friends and family especially with siblings. 

Sibling rivalry/ jealousy is very common. An only child always wants some attention from their parents. If a new member of the family comes along they will feel threaten. They think we won't give them enough love and attention they would want. As parents, we should teach them that being jealous is not good. Always show both of your children that you both love them equally, no favorites. Jealous kids tend to be the rebellious-type of teenagers when they grow up because no one has taught them the proper ways to handle jealousy.

Top five remedies for Fever

For first-time mommies, do you know what are the remedies for fever without giving your child too much medicine? The first symptom of a disease is usually FEVER. Working adults usually just take a Biogesic or Bioflu if they feel they going to have a fever.

but how about children? Their bodies are much more delicate than an adults and some of them are more prone to illness. There are many remedies for fever but I'll only give you my 5 most effective remedies for fever.

Five Remedies For Fever:

1. Stay Hydrated always.

   Whether it is juice, milk or water, always remember be hydrated always. When your baby is sick always let him drink water, this will help him flush down the bacteria inside his body. Fruit juices can also help cleanse the body, some fruits contain antioxidants to hinder bacteria for doing any more damage to the body. For example, Orange juice have vitamin C that help boost you and your child's immune system and Milk have calcium that make the bones strong and less prone to diseases such as bone cancer and osteoporosis. 

2. Cool Down.

    Taking a bath whether sponge or cold bath helps give you relief. When you have a fever, you feel all sticky all over the body. Bathing helps you cool down your temperature evaporating the excess hot inside your body. If you don't want a cold shower then take a sponge bath. Using a moist towel, soak the towel and wipes them all over your body. Another method is leaving a cloth soak with water in your forehead to relieve yourself of the discomfort because of the fever. You can also cool down but wearing less clothing because wearing more can trap body heat more thus making your fever longer.

*when you don't want a cloth on your forehead or want a faster way to cool down, you can also use Kool Fever,a stick-on pad for your forehead with cooling action that works as fast as overnight.

3. Eat.

   You won't get well soon enough without eating. Eating cold food like Popsicle or yogurt are sometimes called fever-reducers help you lessen your body's temperature. But some parents give their kids warm food like porridge or Lugaw in Tagalog, which is usually eaten with an egg and it's easier for kids to eat and digest. 

4. Drink Medicine.

    Medicine is just a help to reduce your fever. Because some children tend to be allergic to medicine, you may want to consult a pediatrician first. 

5. Last thing you need is Sleep or Rest.

   Everybody needs a break once in a while. Everything has it's limits, don't push yourself too hard to the point of fainting during an activity or while working. Resting and Sleeping can store energy and helps to fight against any sickness. Sleeping for kids helps them grow more and more. 

Hope this help for you mommies, but also remember that having a balance diet and exercise for you and your family can help prevent diseases. :)

Indomie Noodles :)

My cousin send some Indomie Noodles as a Balikbayan gift for my uncle from dubai. He gave us some of the extras so I decided to do a review on it. 


Your first impression will it's very colorful. Not fond of the writings though maybe because I can't understand it (haha!). Anyways, the packaging is easy on the eyes; the colors are not too bright and yet you can't tell whether it's spicy or just plain. They should made it with the preference of one's taste buds (spicy, sweet, sour). I got to know it was spicy when I saw the condiments.


It is just like any other instant noodle products. The only difference is the coloring of the noodles. Instant Noodles from Korea are it's almost orange-like and others have this kim-chi kind of smell. But Indomie noodles are pale almost white color. 

How to make Crispy Tuna

I'm not much into cooking but I like experimenting with my different fried dishes.

But always remember: "Too much of something is bad for you." Especially when too much fried foods may cause Alzheimer disease.

I experimented on one dish. I called it "Crispy Tuna"

Crispy Tuna Recipe:


1 Century Tuna (spicy or original)
1 Crispy Fry breading mix
Cooking Oil
1 egg (optional)


1. Open the century tuna can and drain the sauce. You can also have the sauce mixed with the rice and cook it.
2. Mix the Crispy Fry breading mix with the century tuna. (make sure you wash your hands first)
Don't mix all the crispy fry into the century or it may be too salty for your taste. Just make mix to your taste preference.
3. After mixing, wash your hands and open the stove set the fire to high.
4. Pour the cooking oil, set the heat on the medium and put it the mixed crispy tuna wait until golden brown. Close the stove and serve it on a plate.

**While cooking the crispy tuna, you can pour in the scrambled egg. (this is optional)

There you have it. The servings is good for two only. Enjoy!
Next time I'll share my other recipes. until next time :)

Our "Dirty" Ice Cream Experience

On our way home from the TEAM building, we spot the dirty ice cream cart. It's been years since we had dirty ice cream desserts. My husband and I were craving for it for quite some time now, but first, let's define what it a dirty ice cream.

Why is it called a "Dirty" Ice Cream?

It's not necessarily "dirty" like mud or anything like that. We call it "Dirty" because of unsanitary conditions of the seller and some of the sellers / cart pushers don't wears gloves. But others call it "Dirty" because of it's price for as low as 5 pesos single scoop not unlike the big companies.

It is only available here in the Philippines, It is called "Sorbetes" from the word Sorbet. But it is made from coconut milk and can be served in sugar cones, bread buns, and wafer cones.

Prices for these ice cream are very cheap. The sugar cone is usually 5 pesos but some vendors charged 7 pesos to gain more profit. The wafer cone is only 10 pesos some are 11 pesos and lastly the bread buns costs 15 - 20 pesos or sometimes if you want to add extra scoops they charged you more.

We picked out the wafer cones which is the 10 pesos each. There are only two flavors cheese and mango. I didn't recognize it was mango because of the color. (usually the color for the mango flavor is Orange-yellow.)

Next time if we ever encounter another dirty ice cream seller, I hope this time it will have lot's of flavors.

Until the next post :)
