ALOHA Mental Arithmetic: Joining a class

Last September 29 was Lukas’ first time join an ALOHA class. He’s been doing lessons on a one-on-one basis with Teacher Kim every Thursday, but at the recommendation of Teacher Kim, I thought it would be interesting to see how Lukas would fare being in a class with other kids. For one thing, Lukas is an introvert. Oh, he loves company! But like me, he has moments when he withdraws from people and just wants to be left to himself. This is how introverts recharge. We need those moments. Anyway, Lukas has been progressing well, but Teacher Kim says we […]

Easy Recipes: Ketogenic Chocolate Mug Cake

I’ve been wanting to try this recipe on YouTube for so long, but it’s kinda tricky to put together the ingredients because we sort of have a fixed budget for groceries. I prefer to buy what we need for a week or two at the same time, so we can keep tabs of our expenses. Some keto-friendly products are not really available at the usual supermarkets or if you do find them there, like Swerve or Almond flour, they’re a little too expensive than when you buy them from independent distributors and suppliers.

Of course, being the mom that I am, I made them do their thing on video, haha! Anyway, Judah’s request for this week’s episode is Milk Shakes. Most milkshake recipes I’ve seen online require Vanilla Ice Cream, but I remembered that my mom had a milkshake recipe that […]

ALOHA Mental Arithmetic: Of Games and Sharpening both Brains

Are you left-brained or right-brained? Maybe you already know that the two sides of our brains have totally different functions and that they play a role on how we perform in our daily tasks and challenges. When you’re left-brained, you’re considered to be logical and analytical, , but if you have a more dominant right brain, you are on the creative side. In ALOHA Mental Arithmetic, they give their students exercises that would enhance both brain hemispheres, so they can both be analytical and creative, on top of activities that would enhance their learning skills – visual, auditory and kinesthetic.

Novuhair: Natural Treatment & Wellness from Inside Out

It took me until I’m nearing my 40’s to start thinking about my health seriously. I guess there wasn’t too much awareness back then on how to do it. But nowadays, there’s like a whole movement on going all natural and taking care, not only of your physical appearance, but also of your internal health. The condition of our hair, apparently, is one of the ways we can gauge our health. Of course, falling hair is natural – that is, if you’re losing the normal count of 100 strands a day. But if you’re losing more than that, it’s time […]
