Seattle’s Best Coffee and World Vision Event

My brother-in-law, JC Ansis, tagged us along when he attended the Seattle’s Best Coffee and World Vision Event on Oct 19, 2011 in Greenbelt. It was the launch of their holiday drinks and planner.

Soderno’s 1st Day

Wish granted! We were able to go to Soderno’s 1st day.
We thought parking was going to be a problem but we got a spot near the walkway towards the tent.

See You Tomorrow, Soderno!

Kenny and I always wanted to go to Mercato Centrale but schedule and proximity hindered us from experiencing what a lot of people are raving about.

To Market, To Market…

I can’t remember the last time I went to the market. McKenzie was so little then, Kenny carried her in a carrier.

The Mighty Oregano

McKenzie caught the common cold which eventually developed into a bad case of cough.
She coughs and coughs and would throw up. She has the appetite to eat and drink milk but she would throw up and it is causing her weight loss.

Diapers, Diapers

We’ve always used Huggies for McKenzie’s diapers. Huggies Dry during daytime, Huggies Dry Comfort at night and when going out.

Cheaper is Not Better

Cheaper is not better.
As a mom, I am always on the lookout for good deals (read: cheaper) especially in supermarkets. I take time to compare and compute. But too much of a good deal is not always good.
I’ve been using Cycles Mild Laundry Detergent even before McKenzie was born. I’ve used it to wash her tiny clothes, diapers, booties, mittens, bibs and beddings. Its hypoallergenic and baby friendly ingredients makes it suitable for my little McKenzie’s skin.
Our helper, Manang Josie, tells me how she loves using it for McKenzie’s clothes— “mabula kahit kaunti lang ilagay mo” and “mabango”.
Last week though, while grocery shopping at Shopwise Festival Mall, I came across this new product, Smart Steps Baby Laundry Detergent. It is cheaper than Cycles (almost 50% cheaper, I think) and it looked okay. After discussing it with Manang Josie, we both decided to give it a try.
The next day, Manang told me how disappointed she was with Smart Steps: “Yung Cycles, isang scoop lang, ang bula na, itong bago dalawa na nilagay ko, di pa din mabula, at di rin sya mabango.”
Cheaper but not better. I am definitely going back to Cycles— once we use up the pack of Smart Steps we bought.

Excited to Blog Again

I’ve had several blogs in the past. Busy schedule always hindered me
from keeping them up to date. But, I decided a few weeks back that I
want to start blogging again. It took me a long time to come up with a
name though.
I want to blog about things I come across in my life right now- a work
at home mommy. I want to share about the things I am learning about
motherhood, kids, working at home, housekeeping, product reviews, etc.
There’s a myriad of things that I want to blog about and I want to
keep them in one place, thus, this blog.

March- ing In to Summer (Last Days of February and Half of March 2018)

Almost 3 weeks since my last post. Will try to give a rundown of the days that passed. I've been to occupied that I wasn't able to...
