LG’s ThinQ System, for a Smarter and More Connected Home


Have you ever wondered what life would be like if your home ran on AI or artificial intelligence? This home would understand you. It would know to put on the news as soon as you wake up. It would cool your living room to your desired temperature at a certain time each night. It would put your washing machine on the "soiled clothes" setting because it knows, based on your calendar, that you’ve been to the gym.

Your home would be doing this, not because you had asked it to but because it had been learning from your behavioral patterns, understanding your needs and then automating your home based on your habits. Like an efficient assistant, it can predict what you want even before you ask for it.

Recipe: Healthy Carrot Loaf Makes a Great Lunchbox Snack or Dessert


I know like many other moms, you also strive to put healthier balance in your family's diet.  Many people are looking for ways to become healthier, and I'm your go to mommy recipe-trier, for those food who can answer to your cravings but won't make you cry guilty after.

I have had long years of trying this and that, and replacing this with that, and adding this and that, just to make a dish complete with the nutrients your kids need.  Or just like what you might be thinking of me, right now, I'm healthy-food junkie (or crazy).  Call me anything, but don't call me a bad mom.  I know, I know, my kids are just hating me every time I try out something, like adding malunggay to my cookies or brownies or using a different kind of flour.

A Whiff of Modern Freshness and Simple Elegance


Ladies and gents, let me ask you, do you remember the shirt your first date wore? How about the brand of shoes? Would she be carrying a bag? Wore a piece of knock out accessory?

I bet you won't recall any of those!  Coz, try as I must, I too, couldn't remember what my first love wore, but one thing I couldn't forget, except for his face and being a gentleman, his scent, the perfume he wore.  Until now, whenever I get a whiff of that on my husband, I remember...

Restoring Balance in a Mom's Life at City Garden Hotel Makati


When a woman bears a child and brings his or her into this world, she will forget who she wanted to be.  Each time she raises one, their dreams become hers. Their hurts become hers. 

She loses some and yet gains some.

Last Saturday, I spent time alone with my husband, I felt so guilty for having him line up for parking in Megamall while I attend to some mommy blogger friends at the recently concluded Smart Parenting Convention 2018.

Papa Kim's Korean Bakery and Coffee at the Ayala the 30th


Two heads are better than one, don't you think?

Same goes in conceptualizing a food business. Such like Papa Kim's, owned by a Filipino and a Korean.
The concept of opening a Korean bakery came from nonetheless than the Korean partner which happens to own another Korean bakery brand in his country.  To make it authentic, a master baker from Korea was sought out to handcraft the milieu of breads.

Ang Huling El Bimbo, A Tale of Friendship, Tragedy and Love, Interweaved Through Songs


Kamukha mo si Paraluman
Nung tayo ay bata pa
At ang galing galing mong sumayaw
Mapa boogie man o cha cha
Ngunit ang paborito
Ay ang pagsayaw mo ng El Bimbo
Nakakaindak, nakakaaliw
Nakakatindig balahibo...

Went home a little late last night with my husband, eyes bloodshot, tried as much to subdue my emotions and forbade myself to well up, with the ever present lump on my throat, I rested on the truth that others felt the same as seeing them touch their faces, as if trying to hide the same sentiments.

Poyo, My Daughter's New Favorite Fried Chicken


I don't go to the north of Manila for just any reason, whenever I do, I make sure it must have been important.  Saying that, I dragged my daughter and asked my husband to drive us to Robinson's Galleria.  

A long time ago, I used to frequent the area, as I would usually go to Greenhills for my tutoring work and would hang out at the mall for some window shopping.

Perry's Tea Bar and Bakehouse, A Worthy Hangout for Tea-tas and Tea-tos of Manila


Because of the dog's joyfulness, our own is increased. It may be a small gift to some but not the likeness of me.  It is not the least reason why we should honor as love the dog of our own life.  I've been looking at our dogs that way since we had them and that's how Perry's life is appreciated by his dog parents as well.  Perry was a fawn pug owned by the Cortez', the namesake of the newly-opened tea bar and bakery at McKinley West, Taguig.
