I need "ME" time!!!


There's a tremendous amount of stress and pressure put on me lately, being a parent, a daughter, mother, partner. All of these roles combined leave me not taking adequate care of myself -- which is what sustains me and gives me the energy to take care of all these other responsibilities that I have.



Though I know that I must take care of myself to be a better person, I always seem to get sidetracked. There’s always something else to do and someone else’s needs to fulfill. What I need to realize is that self-care is a necessity, and giving myself “Me Time” will allow me to be a more present individual.

I believe every mom/woman needs an occasional break for sanity's sake. This means taking time each day to do something for yourself. That's why Im lucky to have my "me-time" yesterday.

While some refer "me time " as a visit to a salon or spa, time with bffs/ girlfriends, staycation, alone time at the grocery/ mall , mine was different. I opted to go to the church all by myself. I went to St. Padre Pio Church in Libis.

Ito na ang kuwento, kaya Tagalog na. May popcorn ka na ba? Mahaba - haba ito😊 


My SaturDATE - my mom
Yesterday morning, maaga pa kami lumabas ni mommy para magpa laboratory siya. Since maaga kami, nakauwi din kami ng maaga. Nagsabi na ako  na magsisimba ako (anticipated mass) . Kinahapunan, I asked my mom kung sasama siya, napapagod pa daw siya. So, I left them (MITD, Mommy and the kids) at home. Okay naman ako. Wala akong dalang phone! Yes. Nasasanay na ako na walang telepono basta alam ko na nasa bahay lang lahat ng mahal ko sa buhay. Ayoko din ng destructions. I only got my coin purse, fan, shawl and ID with me. Importante ang ID kahit saan ako pumunta hindi pwedeng wala akong dalang ID!
Sa totoo lang, takot ako lumabas mag-isa lalo sa mall. Hindi ko pa yata na try na maglakad-lakad sa mall ng matagal na mag isa. Iba yung sa mall ako nag work dati. Lalabas lang ako para magpupunta sa  restroom, kakain at kapag uuwi na. Pero mag gagala mag isa... AYOKO! πŸ˜‚ Pero kapag mag sisimba magisa, ay, ayan, kayang-kaya kong gawin yan. Minsan talaga mas gusto ko pa magisa kapag magsisimba. But since tinuturuan at minumulat namin ang mga bagets, dapat magkakasama kami magsimba.

Natatandaan ko nung High School at College ako, maaga akong pumapasok para makadaan sa chapel sa school. Walang palya yan. Akala ko nga magiging madre ako hehe. Hindi pala yun ang calling ko. 😜 Siguro dahil bata pa lang ako kasama na ako lagi ng mommy at daddy ko sa simbahan lalo kapag Wednesday sa Our Mother of Perpetual Help in Baclaran. Nung tumanda na ako, nakakapunta lang ako sa church magisa kapag masama ang loob , nagagalit at gusto kong umiyak pero wala akong makausap. Magbbyahe ako from Quezon City to Baclaran at the wee hours para lang magpunta sa church, sarado na kasi ang church na malapit dito sa amin kapag gabi na. Hindi ako natatakot sa mga masasamang loob (bad guys)  kahit alanganing oras kasi nga galit ako at masama (din) ang loob 😑.

Am I mad or masama ang loob kahapon kaya ako nagpunta sa church magisa? NO. Marami akong dala-dalang isipin, takot, at pag- aalala dahil sa mga nangyayari nitong mga nakaraan. Kaya medyo nawawala ako sa sirkulasyon. Natatakot ako na baka hindi ko kayanin. Wala naman akong ibang maasahan talaga kundi si Lord. Kaya, the Gospel and homily were very timely.

The Gospel is from the book of Matthew 10:26-33 Jesus said to the twelve : 26 “So have no fear of them, ifor nothing is covered that will not be revealed, or hidden that will not be known. 27 What I tell you in the dark, say in the light, and what you hear whispered, proclaim on jthe housetops. 28 And kdo not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather fear him lwho can destroy both soul and body in hell.8 29 Are not two sparrows sold for a penny?9 And not one of them will fall to the ground apart from your Father. 30 But meven the hairs of your head are all numbered. 31 Fear not, therefore; nyou are of more value than many sparrows. 32 oSo everyone who acknowledges me before men, I also will acknowledge before my Father who is in heaven, 33 but pwhoever denies me before men, qI also will deny before my Father who is in heaven.
---
In short, HAVE NO FEAR!



During the homily, sabi ni Father para makuha ang goal o mamuhay ng tahimik at masaya, dapat may 3 Rs :

1. Refuse/ reject all worries, fears, all the negative feelings as they are the works of Satan. Do not entertain such feelings. And focus on the important matters/ people.
2. Repent
3. Rely on God alone. Trust in Him.

Ito pa isa kong nagustuhan sa sinabi niya, kaya naisip ko tama lang pala ang ginagawa ko. Iwasan na ang "I's " na nakaka cause ng kasalanan ... iPad, iPhone lol (pun intended). Iyong mga taong malimit mag post ng mga kinakainan na mamahalin, nagbakasyon sa mga mararangyang lugar. Nakaka cause daw ng pagka inggit sa iba na walang kakayanan. Naka focus lang ang mga tao sa "I" o sa sarili. Pati si father, natatakam daw sa mga nakikita niya. Lol. Ang Facebook daw ay nakakasira ng relationships - all kinds of relationship. True for some. Pero ako nagf-facebook na lang for campaigns and events. I rarely post personal stuff. Pati nga trip around the world namin ng family hindi ko na pinost. (Sa panaginip lang kase. Hahaha) Kaya dito na ako nagpost ng personal story ko.
Gising na gising lahat ng tao noong homily yesterday, somehow nakakarelate. Nagtatawanan. Okay sa alright si father! Kaya medyo gumaan gaan ang dinadala ko. Ang masaya pa nung kakantahin na ang Ama Namin, iba talaga ang dating sa akin ng old version. Mas ramdam ko at mas feel. And then, the best part is the pray over and anointing of the oil. Ang dami nila maglagay ng oil. Kaya ako ay umuwi na nagmamantika. Kaya hindi na rin ako nakadaan ng Go Salads kse gusto ko umabot ang oil sa bahay. ☺️Wala akong pakialam kung tumitingin mga passengers sa jeep dahil na dami ng mantika sa noo at leeg ko. Ang hindi nila alam, may oil pa ako sa kamay. Talagang iningatan ko para maipahid ko sa mga mahal ko na uuwian sa bahay. Nakatulog ako ng masarap kagabi. Magaan talaga sa pakiramdam kapag lumalapit ka sa Diyos at ipagkakatiwala mo na lang ang lahat sa kanya. Kaya walang tatalo sa " me " time ko kahapon...

The best "ME" time ever!!! 

It is not selfish to have a me time, lalo at si Lord naman kasama mo. 



I Offer My Life

All that I am, all that I have
I lay them down before You, oh Lord
All my regrets, all my acclaims
The joy and the pain, I'm making them Yours

Lord, I offer my life to You
Everything I've been through, use it for Your glory
Lord I offer my days to You
Lifting my praise to You as a pleasing sacrifice
Lord I offer You my life

Things in the past, things yet unseen
Wishes and dreams that are yet to come true
All of my hopes, all of my plans
My heart and my hands are lifted to You

Lord, I offer my life to You
Everything I've been through, use it for Your glory
Lord I offer my days to You
Lifting my praise to You as a pleasing sacrifice
Lord I offer You my life

What can we give that You have not given?
And what do we have that is not already Yours?
All we possess are these lives we're living
That's what we give to You, Lord

Lord, I offer my life to You
Everything I've been through, use it for Your glory
Lord I offer my days to You
Lifting my praise to You as a pleasing sacrifice
Lord I offer You my life

Lord, I offer my life to You
Everything I've been through, use it for Your glory
Lord I offer my days to You
Lifting my praise to You as a pleasing sacrifice
Lord I offer You my life
Lord I offer You my life

The new and improved in-demand Jollibee's Choco Mallow pie is back!



Extremely high demand for much-awaited dessert pie left some fans hanging



May was a sweet, exciting time for Pinoy dessert lovers, especially for fans of Jollibee’s Choco Mallow Pie. Jollibee, the country’s number one fast-food chain, announced the long-awaited return of one of its best-selling dessert pies.

The new and improved Choco Mallow Pie is indeed a chocoholic’s dream inside and out. A crispy chocolate crust envelops a mouthwatering combination of marshmallow cream and chocolate fudge, delivering a warm, gooey explosion of flavors with every bite.

It is understandable why fans have flocked to their neighborhood Jollibee branches to indulge in this sweet, creamy, and flaky pleasure— and many are buying in bulk!

“Since we’ve relaunched the product, customers are buying Choco Mallow Pie not only as a sweet ending to their favorite Jollibee meals, but also as a snack or treat to enjoy on its own,” shared Kay Segismundo, Jollibee Marketing Manager for Complementary Products. “Jollibee is indeed very thankful for the positive response of our customers not only in social media but also the high demand in our stores.”

Here’s the great news: Jollibee has ensured its customers that the Choco Mallow Pie stocks have been replenished in all branches, so fans can now enjoy more of this sumptuous limited-time offer!

“Again, we’re very thankful for the amazingly sweet response to one of our classic but reinvented dessert pies,” Segismundo concluded. “And don’t worry; we have enough Choco Mallow Pie for everybody. Just drop by your favorite Jollibee stores!”




The Choco Mallow Pie is available for dine-in, take-out, delivery, and drive-thru in Metro Manila, Luzon and will be available in Visayas and Mindanao very soon, for only P32.00* (solo) and P89.00*(pack of 3 Pies-to-Go).

Prices may vary across different locations.

Matcha TEA-in-1 : My perk-me-up buddy

Aside from drinking water. I also love drinking tea especially jasmine and chamomile to keep me calm when I feel agitated and I badly need sleep. But lately, a new buddy came up. 



Matcha tea from Matcha Tea-in-1. I was not a fan of matcha but when I tried this one... Wow! It has an amazing effect on me. My buddy early in the morning while prepping up the kids for school to keep me awake and in late at night to make my brain function well and alert when finishing an article just like now. Time check 1:30am, Friday June 16! πŸ˜‚



In my busy everyday routine as a full-time mom this instant matcha tea is a hit! Just like our favorite pancake, just add water and voila... Instant Matcha! It is a mix of Matcha green tea, sugar and non-dairy creamer. It must have been a love at first sniff and sip, I may say. I love the sweet, milky smell and taste of it. 

Matcha is finely ground powder of specially grown and processed green tea. It is derived from Japanese words "ma" which means "powder" and "cha" which means "tea". A popular drink which was originally used in Japanese tea ceremonies. The traditional Chinese and Japanese tea ceremony centers on the preparation, serving, and drinking of matcha as hot tea and embodies a meditative spiritual style to attain the clarity of mind, and in cleansing to achieve a healthy state. From being promoted as drink for medicinal purposes in China and Japan, to a ceremonial drink to Japanese gatherings, to a staple drink to tea and cake parties. Matcha has been widely accepted globally and we all have witnessed its various varieties like the popular beverage in your favorite coffee shop which can be enjoyed hot, over ice, or blended. I like mine, hot.

Health Benefits of Matcha green tea:
* a high source of antioxidants which fight harmful effects of UV radiation and keeps our skin young-looking
* It is also known to boost metabolism
* Sharpen memory and concentration
* Aid detoxification

Matcha TEA-in-1 brings to the Filipinos a matcha green tea version that incorporates the richness of history, the sweetness of its evolution and the longevity of its appeal. As Matcha tea lovers, the people behind this drink went through careful sampling, taste tasting and mixing before they attained the perfect blend that it is now. 

Im pretty sure that when you try Matcha TEA-in-1, you too will be delighted in every sip.




Follow them on Facebook, Instagram for more details and promos.

So what are you waiting for? Indulge. In TEA, two and one... Go! πŸ™‚

Finally found my ally in showing much of my love for my kids


#PrincessY and I attended the Grand Launch of Gardenia Pocket Sandwich last June 10, 2017 at Fun Ranch. The event was witnessed by mommy bloggers and their kids. It was filled with surprises and prizes.



Kids enjoyed playing the Pachinko Game, Twiggies Color Wheel, Kinect Game, Basketball, and Shooting! And they were all delighted with the bread prizes and premium items given away. Everyone had a wonderful time!










Are you just like how I was? When preparing my kids' baon for school, I buy bread, sandwich spread, and sandwich bags. Lots of ingredients to prepare, imagine the cost, the hassle and time spent just to prepare your kids' food to bring at school. What happens if, let's say, you woke up a tad bit late? You will prepare breakfast, you and the kids will take a bath, oh yeah. It's gonna be one tedious morning. 

Since I want to be a quality mum, the food I prepare is gonna be filled with love and care. Good nutrition and nothing but the best packed in one delicious meal. But even with all the care I put in it, you'll never know if it will still be fresh when recess time comes. Questions will cross my mind, "is the food still okay? I hope I sealed it tight?" 

Good thing the country's leading bread maker, Gardenia PH now introduces its newest product that kid will surely enjoy-- Gardenia Pocket Sandwich!!! a soft, freshly-baked bread that is great-tasting and nutritious. Helping hardworking moms everywhere to show their kids a pocket full of fun and a mother’s love. The product guarantees sealed in freshness and it is not time consuming at all! 

Made with two slices of soft and luscious white bread, Pocket Sandwich has no edges and is perfectly sealed, making it a convenient snack for the kids and not messy to eat. Because it is made by Gardenia, it is guaranteed safe because these sandwiches are produced in a clean and sanitized environment. Now, moms need not worry about sandwich preparations every morning and can now have more time for their kids. 
You can take it with you anywhere! Kids will enjoy eating it at school, you can bring it to picnics and family gatherings as well! 

The sandwich is baked fresh every day so kids can enjoy chocolate and peanut butter sandwiches anytime and anywhere. While kids are at school or around the neighborhood playing with their friends, any mom would know that their kids need all the energy and nutrition from what they eat. Any mother knows that a growing child who eats all the right healthy food could enjoy more from their childhood, and grow up strong and fit.

Which is why both Gardenia Pocket Sandwich variants are high in 
* iron - which contributes to normal formation of red blood cells and hemoglobin; 
* high in Vitamin B1 that helps release energy from proteins, fats and carbohydrates; 
* and has vitamin A, which is essential for the function of the eyes. 

Gardenia understands the plight of any mom who wants only the best for their kids. And they hope that with these new Pocket Sandwiches, Gardenia can ease off some of the work load from the busy life of a mom.

No time to prepare snacks for your kids? Worried they might buy junk food in school? With Gardenia Pocket Sandwich, you need not worry! It's healthy, fresh, and very affordable!!!


For only Php 15.00 (SRP), kids can now enjoy the newest Gardenia Pocket Sandwich, available in leading supermarkets and convenience stores near you. For more information and pocket full of fun, like Gardenia on Facebook at GSnack Treats or visit www.gardenia.com.ph.

Gardenia Pocket Sandwich. Malinis na mura pa!


Princess Y with Sophie, Gavin, Patrick and Mr. Pocket

You get peace of mind with just a piece of Gardenia Pocket Sandwich!!! Can't beat that! 😊

Thank you Gardenia and Filipino Bloggers Network for having us!😊

Survive the summer heat with Gerolsteiner Sparkling Mineral Water


Summer is the best time to bask under the glorious rays of the sun and have fun-sunbathe at the beach, engage in outdoor sports, or just simply enjoy the balmy weather without the fear of rain disrupting our activities.

It is also the time of the year which brings along its own set of health issues which are common, yet difficult to deal. With temperatures soaring during these sweltering summer months, we all need to be aware when our bodies are trying to tell us we need a good dose of rehydration. Water comprises 70% of our bodies, and once this level decreases by even a small percentage, we become dehydrated. Here are some of the most common symptoms of dehydration to watch out for:


1. Increased thirst

Thirst is the body’s most automatic indicator of dehydration.  It is the first reminder that we need to restore fluid balance for our bodies to function properly



2. Headaches and dizziness

When we are dehydrated, the water content in our body drops and results in a decreased flow of oxygen to the brain. This triggers the pain receptors surrounding our brains, inducing nagging migraines and feelings of dizziness.



3. Decreased urination

Maintaining a healthy fluid balance is imperative in keeping our biological functions running smoothly. When we are dehydrated, the kidneys try to conserve water by concentrating urine, so when urine is appears in a darker yellow shade, it means that the body’s fluid balance has been compromised.



4. Dry skin

Our skin’s appearance and elasticity is very much affected by our fluid balance. When we are dehydrated, fluids pull away from our skin and redirect to other major organs in the body to preserve proper biological functions.



5. Sluggishness and fatigue

Dehydration can definitely affect your body’s endurance levels throughout the day, causing feelings of tiredness and decreased alertness. This can impair concentration and cause a disruption with daily and work activities.



The most effective way to revert the effects of dehydration and heat exhaustion is by increasing fluid intake, and water is definitely the most effective key to restoring our body’s all-important fluid balance. Our bodies also lose important nutrients when we are dehydrated, so drinking water high in natural minerals and nutrients is also important in keeping our biological functions running in tiptop condition.

Gerolsteiner Sparkling Mineral Water is complete with a high mineral profile to slake your thirst and provide your body with the nutrients it needs while giving you a deep sense of well-being apparent from your first sip. Whether at work, after sport or simply in between – Gerolsteiner Sparkling Mineral Water is the perfect companion to survive the scorching heat.

Originating from the depths of Germany’s Volcanic Eifel region, Gerolsteiner Sparkling Mineral Water has a unique nutritional balance of calcium, magnesium and bicarbonate, which cannot be found in regular drinking water. It provides the body with valuable minerals and trace elements that the body cannot generate on its own.  One liter of Gerolsteiner Sparkling Mineral Water satisfies 1/3 of the daily calcium requirement and more than a quarter of the magnesium requirement thatsupports your energy metabolism and can help to reduce tiredness and fatigue.

Its refreshing taste profile is amped up by its delightful fizzy mouthfeel, quenching your thirst deeply from the first sip to the last. Gerolsteiner’s natural sparkling fizz comes from its concentration of bicarbonates and is not artificially carbonated like soda. This aids the body’s digestive functions without the added calories, sugar and chemicals.

This summer, have a fizzy pick-me-up thirst quencher. Keep yourself safe from dehydration and maintain your body’s vitality—refresh and rejuvenate with Gerolsteiner Sparkling Mineral Water!
