Battling Head Lice - The Struggle and then LiceAliz

October 7, 2017

When Kuto (Head Lice) strikes, it is always an itchy situation. I have been dealing with this taboo issue from since way back my childhood and up to now that I am already a mom, it has not escaped my life!

Head Lice infestation is a tragic moment in a woman or a girl's life. Mostly if you are in your teens, right? Not only does it cause discomfort, it bothers you most of the time that you want to burn all the hair in your head! Along with all the lice and lice eggs in it.

Just lately, I was very much enjoying my life lice-free until Adi started to attend Kindergarten. The lice story has unfolded another chapter in our home and in our family! It infested me, Adi, and my one-year-old daughter Ami! Oh, Em Gee!!

Ginatilan Cebu Day 2: Ka Eling's Beach House

September 26, 2017

Last Summer the family had the chance to go on a mini Road Trip to Ginatilan Cebu to visit Tatay Techie's family and to celebrate his Lola's 40 days or Quaranta Diaz from the time of her death. Lola Mading was Tatay Techie's Grandma from his father's side and we miss her dearly. When we arrived the day after we decided to take the kids to the beach to have some bonding with their cousins and also enjoy the view. As soon as we get there, we were in for a true nature trip right in the Province. The beach was owned by a family friend and had we waited for Papa Alex ( Tatay Techie's Dad ) my father in law the entrance could have been waived as well as the table fee of 200. But since Adi was already bugging us to go and be at the beach we went ahead and rode a tricycle for around 10 minutes and we already got to Ka Eling's Beach House! Yay!

Creamy Macaroni Mushroom Pasta Recipe

September 9, 2017

It's a Sunday and the husband is away in Manila for a month of training for his new job. I can't say that I love Sundays more when he is at home with us. What I really miss about this thing is having the time to eat breakfast wake up in the morning with the kids and us and me cooking our meal for the day. Next week will be his final week in Paranaque and I really look forward to the day I will be cooking a hearty meal for the kids that he is around to taste and eat the food like this macaroni pasta.

Nine out of every ten housewives are ill-equipped with managing the money remitted by their husbands, the Grab drivers. 
If the wives are not given the necessary skills and opportunities to manage or grow their husband’s income, the endless cycle of poor money management within the Filipino family will continue. In recognition of the importance of the role of wives in achieving success for the community, GRAB Misiskolar was born.

5 Crucial Things to Take Note When Breastfeeding for the First Time

September 1, 2017

I have been breastfeeding since 2012 with my first born son and believe me it was kind of hard in the beginning.

Most especially if you know you get to latch him, how to position the baby for proper latching was a terrible experience for me as a first time mom.

Feeding our babies with milk from our body entails a lot of effort and commitment. Knowing that now, your baby's nutrition will depend also on the food that you will eat.

NIDO Advanced Protectus Launched their brand New Advanced Protectus Milk yesterday at the Trade Activity here in Cebu. As a mother to two kids, I have been swamped with a lot of things to do like managing the house and my kids well-being. Adi has been a Nido Drinker since he was 1 year old and now he still drinks Nido at 5. What I love about Nido is that they have been greatly showing an awesome effort and they are doing a great job most especially in catering to the current needs of the children without sacrificing the budget in providing healthy options for milk supplements that every child needs no matter the level of age they are in. That is why I personally, love Nido.

Mommy Mundo #ExpoMom #TeamMom 2017

A post shared by Mommy Mundo (@mommymundo) on
A lot of things happened recently that I already failed to update this blog. There are times when I just wanted to let things go and happen and then leave them all that way. But no, a blogger like me will always be a blogger.

As much as I want to keep things and photos to myself, there is that itch inside me that desires to share it with my readers. Well, I know I haven't really got to know my readers on a personal level but I know my blog stats tell that there are actual people with heartbeats who really take their time to read this blog. I hope I have given you the insight that you need while you're here reading and dropping by just to see any little updates on my not so crazy life. Thank you.

Just recently, I was invited to attend this year's ExpoMom. The first time I heard of it was last Expo Mom event last 2014, while I was attending an event around the same floor in Ayala Center Cebu.

A few months after giving birth to her first child Alex five years ago, Trixie Ortiz-Renggli found herself looking for an exercise routine which she could do at home as she was breastfeeding, which wouldn’t require any complicated equipment as she probably wouldn’t know how to use it, and which would be kind to a mom who just had a C-Section. By pure chance or maybe divine intervention, Jenifer Martinez invited Trixie to do yoga in a small yoga studio called Shanti Shala ❤️ Yoga gave Trixie and Jen the opportunity to reconnect with each other, letting them form their very own #TeamMom! Read their inspiring story at and see them at #ExpoMomCebu this Saturday at Ayala Center Cebu! 😍 #mommymundo #mompowerment #mmcommunity #expomom #teammom #expomom2017

My 2017 Goals

January 30, 2017

Last year, I wasn't really able to make some posts for my year 2016. A year has passed, and I could really say that I have gone tougher and stronger.

With 2016 a very trying time for me as a mom and as a wife - a homemaker to a small starting and growing family was like diving into deep water without having to know how to swim. That was how my 2016 last year started.

Those trying moments, I held on to my mom my dad and also my husband. I could not make it alive without them seriously!

I looked up to the sky too! Thinking what the hell have I gone myself into? It was a drastic moment, so this year if ever I will be given the chance, I would like to make small adjustments to my goals and strokes for motivations. I commit myself to growing more cautious on the food that I eat things that I prepare for my kids and family. This year, I commit to a healthy lifestyle most especially that my husband has been recently diagnosed with hypertension. One that is at the verge already so I am practically looking for ways to motivate him too for lifestyle changes. Hopefully, he gets  the drill and then lower his chances of other diseases accompanied by it.

Also this year, our country, the Philippines hosted the ever beautiful Miss Universe and Miss France, Iris Mittinaere won! Yay! She was my bet. Here is some of the quotes from Miss Australia who also happens to have the same definition for success as mine. 😁😁

The first month of 2017 is a very trying time again for us. It's like the things that happened from last year has some small aftershocks on this month to us. 

But hopefully, with the loving grace of God, we can still make it. One thing that I want to focus also for this year aside from health is to focus more on moving. Going around some more with the kids and spending moments with them more. Maybe by February we can do that? Who knows. 

There are a lot of things that I want to achieve this year aside from living a healthy lifestyle, I would liek to switch my travel mode on and spend some time with my kids outdoors. Also, in the plans are growing this blog of mine. It's been 8 years but I still have not reached my goal for this blog so I commit to that this year.

How about you? What are your goals for this year of the Fire Rooster?

Let me know in the comments below.

Stay fab!
