I am still overwhelmed of how beautiful this movie is. It was really true from the interviews I did with them especially Bela Padilla that this movie will not dwell on the heartaches and problems, it did show the beauty of moving on, the beauty of Bantayan Island in Cebu and the beauty of new friendships. This is for everyone, whatever the state of your heart is, the maturity of this film will teach you so many lessons in life. The roles really suits the ladies, if it as if it was meant for them all along, and if I may, I wanted to commend Bela Padilla's acting, it was superb, she already got my attention when she was still with "Ang Probinsyano" but here in Camp Sawi, my admiration for her in terms of acting made me whisper in my seat "Grabe and galing ni Bela". You see, I am not in any state sad or heart broken, I am actually happy but, I felt Bela's emotions in the film, it's as if my husband left me too, argh! Please do watch the movie, go get everyone of your friends I am getting mine to watch it again since I wasn't able to fully grasp some lines because watching it during the premiere with everyone feeling excited and overwhelmed, there will be clapping in scenes that took our breaths and made us laugh, so yeah, yes for a repeat! Promise, I do not say this often with other movies but this one is really for everyone, let us not loose this chance of seeing a quality film which doesn't rely on a love team to make it a hit. Camp Sawi weekend shall we?

You know that feeling of eating fresh seafood like crabs and shrimps is like only available when you go out of town or to the beach. But no need to wait for that moment because Blue Post Boiling Crabs and Shrimps is now open at the 4th level of The Block in SM North, now are you craving? Blue Posts is very proud of this restaurant because they offer the fresh seafood from Davao, from crabs to shrimps to tuna belly and oh there's native chicken too (not seafood ha lol!)

We were served first of their Calamares, this one is the the best I tasted so far because if was really fresh the squid was really tender and every bite is worth it (may laman not puro breading). Then we had Sinuglaw, the Davao version of fresh tuna, with radish and apple slices, cuts of fried liempo and finished off with us squeezing the calamansi, oooh it was heavenly perfect. The Grilled Tuna Belly with lots of fried garlic makes me want to eat fish forever. But if you don't want to be messy they also have crab and shrimp rolls, have fork and then eat but that is boring when you are in in this resto. Because the Boiling Crabs and Shrimps were served, I love that you can choose from 3 flavourful kinds of cooking, the garlic fried, hot (sambal) and the blue post (saucy) my favorite would be the blue post, I am a saucy person when it comes to food.

Don't just take my description and imagine them on the table, go ahead and make your way to Blue Posts Boiling Crabs and Shrimps, and remember it is cool to be messy when you are there, and by the way If by chance you'll have Wendy to serve you, please say hi.

Blue Posts Now Boiling Fresh Crabs And Shrimps

As a homemaker I am very particular with the products I use at home especially now that we have a toddler. I am more concious of both the quality and the price, if it suits our needs and our budget, but I can also be an immediate loyal consumer once a product really delivers and stats true to its promise regardless if it is pricey than the rest of its competitors. I am not really familiar with Mighty Mom as a dishwashing liquid, you see we use the one that is advertised and it is effective as well but a few years back I had a skin irritation and had to stop using it, although it is still part of our grocery list ot was used in the household but not by me. I searched for another dishwashing liquid which is organic and you know how expensive "organic" is, so yeah I had to buy my own which means an added cost to the budget. So going back to Mighty Mom, during the media launch I have no doubt about it being a grease cutter since we did some demo and the price really suits the budget, my question was if it will be mild on my hands. As explained, Mighty Mom only uses products which are safe, they do not use the ones that has been banned and tagged as unsafe in other countries as well and they do not use china-brand ingridients. But of course the mildness depends on every persons skin which I totally understand, and I was hoping that it would work with my skin irritation so that we can switch and just buy this one product than having a separate one for me. So we took home goodies of Mighty Mom variants and I was asked to try it for a week and let them know through this blog of what my findings are, here it goes.

1. I like Mighty Mom's scent, it is not that strong and it smells fresh but when placed in the rack the scent disappears which is completely ok because who wants scented rice or adobo together with your plate right?
2. It still cuts through grease even when you mix it with water, yay for the budget and the quantity, I smell more savings.
3. And yes it really mild and gentle with my hands. With out old brand, after every wash I would feel like the inside of my skin has a burning sensation then after a few hours it will itch then have those little blisters. But with Mighty Mom, I was surprised, not a tiny bit of itchiness. I do hope the very beautiful family from KOHL will be able to read this, and yes we are switching, thanks goodness for this Mighty Mom!

Also, they are on Buy One Take One promo that so far it doesn't have a time frame so go get yours while there is more, Mighty Mom is available in most leading supermarkets and groceries, yes the ones in the malls too. :-)

It is back! Oh not as if it was absent but our favorite McDonald's French Fries that I personally deep in their yummy gravy has an exciting treat for us! Say hello to McDonald's Shake Shake Fries and yes they have 3 flavors for us to devour with friends and family. We got to try them during the Shake and Freeze Media Party held at the McDonald's store, The Forum, BGC where we had some games and raffles before we were served with freshly fried french fries ready to be shaken by the super yummy BBQ, Creamy Cheddar and Garlic Butter (my personal fave). Shaking them up is so fun and exciting knowing that after the shaking is the tasting. And it does not end there, of course drinks should be next and the best pair for this is the McFreeze oh yes I chose Royal and of cpurse there is Coke too. Super amazing tandem, so when tou go visit your fave McDonald's store remember to Freeze and Shake ayt!

So after the fun in letting my one year old eat different kinds of food like vegetables, breads and fruits, I am now in question if it is the right time to teach him how to brush his teeth or at least introduce it to him at one year and 2 months. But for now he will just have to watch us do it first and in the future we could try CLIO.

-------
Get creative and make routine tasks like eating with a spoon and fork or brushing their teeth fun

Is your baby now a toddler? Now’s the time to teach them to do things on their own. As a parent, you have the privilege of helping them further enjoy their toddler years by teaching them to be independent and fully capable to do simple tasks on their own.

While teaching energetic toddlers may not be a walk in the park, incorporating a good dose of fun will always do the trick. But first, you have to set an example for your child. Toddlers often mimic what their parents do, whether on how to use a spoon and fork, how to drink from a glass, or how to brush their teeth. Make sure they watch you when you do these things – or better yet, allow them to do these things with you – so that they can copy you.

Make everything fun. Create fun step-by-step guides for properly eating with a spoon and fork, for example. You can use music or rhymes, whichever works.

When brushing teeth, funny faces or catchy songs may just be the trick you need. Use a catchy nursery rhyme to signal that it’s time to brush their teeth. Establish that it should be a routine – after eating, they should always brush their teeth. Remind them that they need to do it to have healthy teeth in the future.

To make your child’s brushing experience light and enjoyable, also make sure that you are using the right toothbrush, like the Korean-made Cleene CLIO Junior toothbrush with extra soft round-ended and tapered bristles with anti-bacterial property, perfect for your kids’ sensitive and brittle teeth. It comes in different vibrant colors kids will surely love.

After they’ve mastered these simple tasks, gradually let them explore and play on their own, and even let them choose their own clothes. Encouraging them to be independent at an early age allows them to express their creativity, and that will surely go a long way.

Cleene CLIO toothbrushes are available in all Mercury Drug stores and other leading supermarkets nationwide.

At first I was not interested about this movie until teasers came out one after the other. My first take basing it on the title and the clips? This might be another hugot, emote, pabebe film which is super uso nowadays, you'll wake up to it everyday on social media. Then I was invited to their mall show in Market Market Taguig and was given a chance for an interview with the Camp Sawi ladies namely Kim Molina, Yassi Pressman, Arci Munoz and Bela Padilla (Andi Eigennman was not feeling well that time- absent)

So anyway during the conversations, yup we don't do interviews we are like chatting, that is how we do it, the ladies shared their thought about their break-ups and said the hurt must be felt so one could be able to move on, that they wanted a real Camp Sawi for people who would be needing a support group because they said no one even your closest friends would be able to understand what you are feeling because every pain is different from the other. What surprised me as Bela Padilla said this is not a hugot film, why? Because a small percentage of the movie only tackled the pain and suffering, this is more of the beauty of moving on, on how someone could actually realize and see better things despite their bad relationship endings.

So that what males this film exciting and interesting at the same time, they captured my attention and I will definitely want to see this on August 24 in cinemas, if you are from Cebu catch their premiere night at the SM Seaside Cebu on August 22nd, and Manila premiere on August 23rd at SM Megamall.

Jeunesse Anion sanitary pads recently held a Zumba party at the Marriot for bloggers. The room was filled with mostly mommy bloggers who wants to do some shaking to get those stress out of our system, what's more exciting is that the one hour zumba party will be lead by non-other that the very sexy and fab Regine Tolentino. After the Zumba-mazing non stop dancing, healthy food was served which was enjoyed by everyone, oooh a day of healthy living is just so wonderful, can we do this everyday? Lol!

So anyway it took me a couple of weeks to actually write about Jeunesse Anion because I wanted to really try it, hence I have to wait for my monthly visitor of course. I checked out our favorite grocery and supermarket to know how the pricing of Jeunesse competes with the regular commercialized brands, oooh a bit pricey, which made me more curious about this product. So, I was now able to try it and now I undesrtand why, it really is absorbent? The panty liner felt like I wasn't even wearing one, and for those heavy days and nights, aside from being absorbent it feels clean, no rashes and itchy feel and you'll feel the value for money because it is highly absorbent thus not making you feel concious that overflow might happen. If that is the feeling of having a healthy pad for a better hygiene oh well I am switching. And so I did, when we went to the grocery during the weekend I did not think twice and got Jeunesse liners for my everyday use. Thanks Jeunesse Anion for introducing this great product for women.

I have been with James Reid and Nadine Lustre a couple of times already, had pictures and interviews with them as well, but this was the first event wherein I saw them with their fans. I am also a JaDine fan of course and I am thankful to get to meet them up close, but to see other fans loving them even from afar is a different story, a story of pure love for JaDine. After the fans day for the launch of their new forever love from Jollibee, I realized why people wants to stay and wait to see them, becasue the hashtag #TeamReal is really for real, they have the sparks in their eyes, the kilig smiles and they are just as they are, they don't need to caress each other the whole time just to make people believe because just by looking at them up on stage, you will know that it is real. And aside from being real, they are so game as well, they interact with their fans and play games with no arte at all. Oh they are loved because they love them (fans) bavk as well. Now I understand more of their chemistry and why they are one of the leading love teams, they are just so real.

#TeamReal, Jollibee throws kilig get-together at SM Mall of Asia

To celebrate their new Forever Love, James Reid and Nadine Lustre (popularly known as the on- and off-screen love team JaDine), together with Jollibee, the nation’s number one fastfood brand, surprised their avid followers with the New Forever Love Fans Day on August 3, 2016 at the SM Mall of Asia Music Hall in Pasay City.

Filled with special performances and fun activities, the event also allowed JaDinenians to ask their idols about their relationship, where the love birds gamely revealed the sweet and spicy side of their relationship since being officially together over five months ago.

James shared that Nadine has done a lot of things that he finds so sweet like the surprises she prepared for his last birthday. For her part, Nadine says James is also sweet in his own way, and what she finds as the sweetest gesture he did for her was when he wrote a song for her.

Aside from enjoying kilig moments, the two added that their being both fun-loving and adventurous further spices up their relationship.

“We have been traveling a lot together for work and being able to do a lot of adventures during these travels really adds spice to our relationship. Our latest one was when we went to New York where we were able to do a lot of things. Adding excitement to our relationship as well is the difference in our personality – like she’s a morning person while I am an evening person – so there’s the challenge of finding middle ground to make it work,” said James.

JaDine said that they also bond a lot over food such as their #NewForeverLove – the NEW Sweet-Spicy BBQ Burger Steak, which is made of 100 percent pure beef patty topped with Sweet-Spicy BBQ sauce and corn kernels and served with steamed rice. Prior to the newest twist to the leading fastfood chain’s well-loved Burger Steak, JaDine had also shared kilig moments over the Jollibee Classic Burger Steak, which they have dubbed as their “Forever Love.”

“We love both the Classic and the Sweet-Spicy BBQ Burger Steak. It is also real to say that ‘sweet-spicy’ describes the kind of relationship that we have now – nakaka-kilig sa sweet and delightfully spicy,” said Nadine.

Eat Bulaga’s very own pint-sized cutie is not just huggable and lovable. He’s also smart when it comes to his techie toys.

Bae-by Baste, or Sebastian Benedict off-camera, is one of the co-hosts in the Philippines’ longest-running noontime variety show, and he is known for his irresistibly adorable antics. Like any kid his age, he loves his fair share of gadgets and his number one choice these days is the Smart Watch.

The Smart Watch from PLDT HOME is today’s coolest gadget for kids, and parents love it too. It can be used for taking photos, playing music and even recording sounds, music or funny messages. Kids can also get


notifications from games or apps like Facebook, and calls and text messages through the watch when it is paired with the PLDT HOME Telpad or a smart phone so Mommy or Daddy can easily send messages and friendly reminders if needed.

Bae-by Baste’s Papa Sol and Mama Sheila, as well as brother Sam-sam, are all in on the Smart Watch craze. They love how it can be used as a WiFi remote for the Telpad or smart phone cameras so it’s easier to take selfies or fun family groufies together.

Another cool feature that Papa Sol and Mama Sheila like is the anti-lost feature because it lets them know if the connected Telpad or smart phone is too far away. You can also click a button on the watch so that the connected Telpad or smart phone will make a sound to help locate it when it is misplaced. This is especially handy for kids who can’t help but be their usual carefree selves.

With the Smart Watch, there’s no down time when it comes to fun and bonding wherever Bae-by Baste is. Now, he’s not just the cutest ‘bae-by’ on noontime TV, he’s also definitely one of the coolest.

Bae-by Baste's New Gadget from PLDT

Eat Bulaga’s very own pint-sized cutie is not just huggable and lovable. He’s also smart when it comes to his techie toys.

Bae-by Baste, or Sebastian Benedict off-camera, is one of the co-hosts in the Philippines’ longest-running noontime variety show, and he is known for his irresistibly adorable antics. Like any kid his age, he loves his fair share of gadgets and his number one choice these days is the Smart Watch.

The Smart Watch from PLDT HOME is today’s coolest gadget for kids, and parents love it too. It can be used for taking photos, playing music and even recording sounds, music or funny messages. Kids can also get


notifications from games or apps like Facebook, and calls and text messages through the watch when it is paired with the PLDT HOME Telpad or a smart phone so Mommy or Daddy can easily send messages and friendly reminders if needed.

Bae-by Baste’s Papa Sol and Mama Sheila, as well as brother Sam-sam, are all in on the Smart Watch craze. They love how it can be used as a WiFi remote for the Telpad or smart phone cameras so it’s easier to take selfies or fun family groufies together.

Another cool feature that Papa Sol and Mama Sheila like is the anti-lost feature because it lets them know if the connected Telpad or smart phone is too far away. You can also click a button on the watch so that the connected Telpad or smart phone will make a sound to help locate it when it is misplaced. This is especially handy for kids who can’t help but be their usual carefree selves.

With the Smart Watch, there’s no down time when it comes to fun and bonding wherever Bae-by Baste is. Now, he’s not just the cutest ‘bae-by’ on noontime TV, he’s also definitely one of the coolest.

As a first time mom, it was tough to make decisions for my baby, I would always ask my pedia, family and friends for recommendations and tips, but because they have a lot to say and sometimes contradicting, I got confused on which ones to follow and what really is effective. Reading online articles also added up a little stress in the quest to know and give what is best for my baby, I am always careful and question myself many times if what I was doung was right, and mostly ended up feeling upset because I think I did not do well.

As I was invited by Nido to welcome their newest endorser Sarah Lahbati, I got excited since she is also a first time mom and would love to know her experience of being one especially having both her mom and mom-in-law who guides her. A question was asked: What if there were suggestions given by both her mom and mom-in-law who would she follow? Sarah answered: Myself! And then it dawned on me, of course myself, that is the best answer and sometimes the best thing to do is trust your instincts and I believe that mothers are the best ones to decide what's best for their babies.

That is why Nido encourages all the moms out there to check the labels of products especially the food and milk that we give them, take time to read and understand because the health of our kids rely on the food they intake. And of course Nido is very proud to be giving the best milk for kids 3 years and up, it is perfect for very active and curious babies to nurture their mind and body, always check the label to feel assured that we are giving the beat for our kids.

The ever lovely Julie Anne San Jose is once again back with her latest self titled album entitled Julie Anne San Jose Chasing The Light. This album is composed of original songs composed by various composers some even are foreign composers. Julie Anne admits she will be very busy in the upcoming months to promote her album in different parts of the Philippines and is also set to have concert tours after.

In line with her busy schedule as an artist, Julie plans to hopefully pursue her masters degree but would have to wait till next year so she can finish all her commitments first. And of course we were curious about the status of her love life since she had been exchanging tweets with the very eligible and hot Benjamin Alves. Julie says, what they are on twitter is what you see and what you get, they jive in terms of their love for reading and they get along so well, no courting yet but when asked if ever, Julie says Ben has all the potential of a boyfriend kind of guy and her family approves of him as well. Let's leave them at that for now and wait if their friendship blossoms into a serious relationship, nakaka kilig lang if ever.

Anyway, you may get a copy of the album from your favorite record bars nationwide. Support OPM and Pinoy artists.
