good housekeeping money matters

Do you know why Filipinos get easily scammed? It’s because we buy products or services that we do not truly understand. We also love get-rich-quick schemes. I mean, who doesn’t want to get rich in the shortest time possible? But every single time, we hear people regret decisions of signing themselves up with such schemes because instead of gaining, they lost their investment.

Why?

Food Tasting at McCormick Flavor Nation

The brand McCormick became known to me because of their tea bags. Anyone remembers the green box and the individual plastic container for each tea bag with the word “McCormick” printed? Yeah, that’s the one. Then, I learned about their curry powder. And as the years go by, I started to learn more about herbs and spices as I find my way into the kitchen to explore the art of cooking. I also use McCormick food coloring and vanilla extract in my baking. So there, I can safely say that I am indeed a fan of McCormick.

There were 4 chefs that shared their creations. Given that I had two stubs, I was able to get two of everything! I only got to taste 3 out of the 4 though. I didn’t get the kare-kare since it had bagoong and I am allergic.

Here are the 4 dishes served during the event:

Menu Planning and More at Mommy Mundo’s Good Eats for Moms

I find menu planning quite hard to do. You see, I always run out of ideas on what to cook for the day, much less for a week! But menu planning makes a lot of things more efficient and time saving, wouldn’t you agree?

Recently, I attended Mommy Mundo’s Good Eats for Moms where I was able to listen to several speakers share tips and insights on how to prepare healthy meals for the family.

Mommies Get Gifts Too…

Not counting the yearly tradition of gift exchange we have in the family, it’s been years since I have joined any gift exchange activities with a group. So when Mommy Bloggers Philippines came up with a gift exchange activity this year, #MBPGiftSwap, I eagerly signed up because it is the first time that I got to experience gift exchange activity without meeting the recipient of my gift. Gifts were shipped to recipients and I got to ship my gift to someone down south. I really found that cool! 🙂 Another reason why I joined? Because mommas get gifts, too, during the […]

Learning How To Be A Mindful Mom

In the midst of juggling all the million little things that we’ve set to accomplish, where do we leave ourselves? Do we have time to dedicate just for us, moms? Do we give ourselves a few minutes to just breathe and smell the roses, so to speak? To listen to our own thoughts and not thinking about the list of to-do things that we have yet to tick off the list?

Why are we in a hurry?

The TLC Fest Experience

The TLC Festival was recently held at Bonifacio Highstreet. Eversince I saw the ad to this event in Facebook, I was excited and pre-registered online. It was just a one day event full of activities. One of the reasons why I signed up was because Cake Boss, Buddy Valastro, would be there. I mean, who wouldn’t want to meet Buddy, right? 😀 Anyway, we arrived at the event in the afternoon already. I never really expected much, apart from the fact that there will be a lot of people. Activity areas had long lines of people, too, and I didn’t want […]

Philippine Homeschool Conference 2016: A Few Takeaways from Keynote Speakers

I have always been fascinated by the concept of homeschooling since I was a kid. Some of the kids in church that I played with were homeschoolers and the idea of staying at home and receiving education was considered awesome for someone who had gone to a traditional school. As I grew older, I have seen and learned more about homeschooling that had not only fascinated me but made me want to homeschool my kids in the future. So when I learned that there was a homeschool conference happening, I didn’t hesitate to sign up. So, on October 22, I woke […]
