Toy Kingdom is now at Kidzania Manila

This is such exciting news. Toy Kingdom is one of my kids’ favorite places in the world, and we frequent the one in SM Aura if only for them to check out new toys they’re selling, see if the toys they’ve been saving up for are there and playing with some of them. Did you know they allow kids to do that? My kids go around the place in scooters, shoot hoops and even do hula hoops. And what better way to teach kids about business than giving them a taste at the store they love so much? Anyway, Toy […]

Easy Recipes: Cheesy Low Carb Eggplant & Broccoli Dish

I honestly don’t know how to call this dish so I’m just going to be literal about it — I call it Cheesy Low Carb Eggplant & Broccoli dish. I just came up with it last night, but I think I’ve based it on an eggplant cracker dip I once saw. Only that I added broccoli and beef, and left out the cream for this one. Anyway, I’ve been struggling to go back to a low carb diet (just so hard to steer clear of rice, bread, and pasta when you’re a Filipino!) and I thought last night was as […]

Me & My Dad Camp: Why dads should take their kids camping

I had a quiet two days last week. My husband, Jay, took the two younger kids to the annual Me & My Dad Camp event with our church. The venue was in Clearwater Resort, Clark Freeport in Pampanga.

I appreciated the silence and the company of our 13-year old, Pablo, who mainly kept to his books […]

SeCham: Our New Favorite Korean Fast Food Resto

I was first introduced to Korean food back in the early 2000’s when Jay and I were supposedly scheduled to fly to South Korea for a two-year gig with our former band. Since our plan was to save up for our future, we agreed to make the most out of the food that the client will provide us instead of using our pay for food when we’re out there. So me, being me, wanted to practice eating Korean food before we leave, haha! So we found this authentic Korean restaurant in Malate and we visited that place for at least […]

Building a Better World with Kidzania Congrezz

It wasn’t my first time to hear about Kidzania Congrezz. I actually came across the search for the new batch of Congrezz a few months back and even contemplated on having my children send in their applications. (We didn’t push through) Kids who will be chosen for the Congrezz will take part in discussions on trends, exchange ideas and opinions, be invited to grace events, take part in outreaches, meet Kidzania Congrezz from other countries, and contribute to the city in building a better world. Kidzania, as I now completely understand, is a kingdom on its own and the kids […]
