PSBank's Good to Know Campaign for Property Buyers

Are you in the need for a new property? Perhaps to develop for your growing family or as an investment?  Would you prefer a brand new one from a well-established property developer or would you consider buying a property from an original (first-hand) owner.

How about sparing yourself from possible remorse.

PSBank, through its “Good to Know” campaign, help you spot a gem among wide choices of pre-owned houses with these tips:

PROMAMA Unveils Baby’s First Gift to You

I never could have imagined myself having a baby again after 13 years.  Physically, no woman is ever prepared for this, where in the body goes through a whole roller coaster of changes and these reflect in the changing states of mind as well.

When my husband and I confirmed that  was indeed expecting we felt we're back to square one.  All over again, I have to learn the ropes as I go along and while taking utmost care.  As parents, we are o faced with the most fundamental questions about everything from the body to life, to what happens int he first five years, to chaning family plans and many more.

Presotea: Taiwan's Brew-to-Order Tea is Now Here in Manila

As a tea-lover myself, one of the most exciting undertaking I had during our last year's trip to Taiwan was to be able to sample their teas, particularly their oolong tea, which I had several tastings of at Jiufen.

Taiwan produces some of the finest oolong teas in the world, and the more I learn about the different varieties and subtle differences between them, the more I find myself becoming obsessed with tea.  As a side note, Taiwan is also famous with milk teas or bubble teas.

Lee Jong Suk's 89M Mansion Cafe in Gangnam District

It was our third day and I'm torn whether to stay in Myeongdong or continue on our journey at Garuso-gil, as initially planned.  We are to check out from the rented place in Yongsan and go to Incheon to check in on a hotel, near the airport.

After having our luggage stowed away safely, we decided to have lunch somewhere nice, and my daughter Dana suggested Lee Jong Suk's cafe - 89M Mansion at the Gangnam area and they've also been meaning to visit SM Entertainment (they might have chance upon their favorite K-Pop idols).

Four-Day South Korea Family Winter Tour Itinerary

Our family's trip to South Korea was one that challenged us yet again, in terms of budget and patience.  We left Manila for our flight at night and we arrived at Incheon at 10:20 PM Korean time.
Korean time is about an hour ahead than Manila's so better change your clock once the plane is in flight.

You will get off at Terminal 2 and will have have to alight the train going to Terminal 1.  Just follow the crowd and it will lead you to the immigration then to the exit. Expect long lines in the immigration specially if it's peak season.

The Best Christmas Gift We Gave our Children - TRAVEL

This year brought so many realization in my life, most of it is founded around my family and how I can make their lives more meaningful, how they can be better humans, how I can bring more than happiness.

When I was so busy being bothered by how they should grow, I have hoped that the world would always thrill them and that they spend their days running at it full speed, but not getting caught thinking about things that don't matter or even wasting it on people who don't value them.
