Happy at 32!

The most relaxing birthday I’ve had in years…because I didn’t bake & cook any! Yeheyyyyy!!!!

Hubby just bought pancit palabok (my request) & ordered pizza and everything else was just given & cooked by friends, neighbors & in-laws. Thank you soooo much from the bottom of my heart! ❤

Happy birthday to me! Yay!

Thanks for the surprise visit, Mye & Paulo! Love you, guys!

Now that we’re all done celebrating our birthdays this month (my daughter’s 3rd birthday and my son’s 7th birthday), it is time to face and overcome one sad reality: shake off the 10 extra pounds I’ve gained over the holidays and our back-to-back birthday celebrations. Ayayayyyyy!

 

2 Corinthians 4:16

So we do not lose heart. Though our outer self is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day by day.

10 Years Later…

We were back to this place again….

But this time, with our two kids. :-)

How  time flies!

Palace in the Sky, Tagaytay (Dec. 9, 2012)

Thank you Lord for blessing our marriage with these little angels and that by Your grace, our marriage remains strong.

Our life is definitely not perfect…but we sure have a lot of perfect moments together as a family.

Ah….life is indeed beautiful!

Thanks for the lovely shot, Tito Maynard! (my brother-in-law)

Happy 35th Birthday, Sweetie!

 

The World of Baking

I am pretty much new to baking and so far, I have learned a lot!

The very first time I used yeast was when I made my very first pizza dough. I couldn’t explain the joy it gave me upon seeing the dough doubled in size. It was amazing! (Well, at least for me.) :P

I’ve learned about proofing, scalding, kneading, and other baking terminologies. I also found out that yeasts play an important role in beer making. I read that beer yeast changes the sugar to alcohol and produces carbon dioxide (Co2). Cool, eh?

Anyway, if you’d like to check out my dough recipe, feel free to visit my virtual kitchen –> www.iamsupermomskitchen.info.

Transferring to a New Server Soon!

Hello, world! Sorry for not being able to update this blog for the past few weeks. I’ve been experiencing severe downtime issues with my web host lately, so I’ve decided to look for a new host. I have already lost so much time, money and yes, patience!

Sorry if my blog still looks weird. Don’t be surprised if you encounter broken links and missing posts.  I hope I would be able to fix everything soon.

By the way….

Conzace: Every Supermom’s Health Partner

Since I resigned from work, I’ve made a decision to NOT put limits in my capabilities as a stay-at-home mom. Sure, being home 24/7 has its perks in terms of spending quality time with my kids and making sure their needs are attended to with utmost care. But in reality, there are a whole lot of other things that keep every mom as busy as she can be.

Like I always tell my friends, I never get bored because in the household I’m running, there’s always something to do, something to clean, something to learn, something to improve, something to change… and the list goes on! That’s why as busy supermoms,
keeping ourselves healthy should be our number 1 priority. Having a strong immune system protects us from easily getting sick so we can do amazing things for God (ministry work, helping others, etc.) and our family.

And I am so glad that through Conzace, I found a health partner that helps me achieve my goals as an effective homemaker.

The secret to strong immunity is in our white blood cells.

Do you know that dosing up on Vitamin C is not enough to boost our immune system? And here’s another shocking part: No matter how much Vitamin C we take on a daily basis, it will just play the same role because our body can absorb and use only up to 200mg of Vitamin C. And guess what, any excess will just be urinated! What a total waste! (Now that’s a real shock for someone like me who takes 1000-1500 mg of Vitamin C!)

So you might be wondering….how can Conzace help our immune system? What does it do exactly?

Conzace has a formula to make stronger white blood cells which means stronger immunity. It contains Vitamin C that helps develop white blood cells, Vitamins A & E that help intensify the protection of these white blood cells (100 IU of Vitamin E) and 25 mg of Zinc (higher amount of Zinc than other popular vitamins in the Philippines) that helps multiply white blood cells so that we can have enough to defend us against sickness. Also, Conzace is the #1 prescribed multivitamin by doctors for many years for Heavy Duty Immunity.

Upon learning about this, I stopped taking my daily dose of regular Vitamin C and started using Conzace together with my husband. To those who want to try it, Conzace is available at Watson’s, Mercury Drug and other leading drug stores nationwide at only P12.40 per capsule. For more information, visit Conzace on Facebook.

Date with my Dear Friends

Last night, I spent time with my two dear friends over dinner and coffee. The last time we had dinner was five months ago (and it’s the very first time I’ve ever gone out with friends since I resigned from work January of this year), so I was more than excited to see them again. I love staying home all the time, but being with these two crazy friends once in a while was like a breath of fresh air! Guaranteed non-stop laughter! I love you, Mye and Paulo!!! Until our next date! :-)

Extended Summer

Apparently, nothing can stop these kids from swimming even if it’s rainy season.

My kids, Ayesha & Greggy with their playmate Myca

Mr. Sun was smiling when they started so I didn’t mind when they asked me to setup the inflatable pool after school. But after 30 minutes, it started raining heavily and it was already too late for me to back out. The kids were already having so much fun soaking in the water!

So with my husband’s approval, I let the kids have fun while swimming in the rain — silently hoping they wouldn’t catch a cold after that. I was grilling hotdogs and feeding them while they are having the time of their life. Oh well… *eyes rolling*

In times like this, it makes me wish we had some sort of Raypak pool heater. :-)
