The Most Advanced Telpad Yet! Meet PLDT HOME Telpad!




        Okay so remember my last post not so long ago about a really cool surveillance product by PLDT? Turns out that’s just the tip of the ice berg. PLDT went extra active this year with the new and most advanced PLDT HOME Telpad! And it’s pretty darn cool!

        Imagine, one device that can do around 5 neat tricks that will greatly make our everyday lives easier, not to mention cooler! Almost to the level of Back to the Future movie. (Alright I’m exaggerating but still really really cool!)

Apples A Day with Mott's 100% Apple Juice


Apple Juice

        I have a little juice monster at home. A fact that I'm not complaining about because at least I know what she's drinking is healthy. She particularly likes orange juice. But then again, I never really bought her any other flavor. I was just thinking since orange is the ultimate Vitamin C source, then it must be good for her.

        But I guess I wasn't really doing my research because I realized that orange juice is not the only fruit rich in vitamin C. Duh. There are a lot of other juices that pack vitamin C and a lot more other vitamins that are good for us. Hint? "An ________ a day keeps the doctor away!". That saying doesn't exist for nothing. Yes, APPLES!

        Why apples? Based on this website here, apples have Pectin which lowers both blood pressure and glucose levels, and also lower bad cholesterol. It also has Boron for stronger bones and a healthy brain. It's got Quercetin which shows promise for reducing the risk of cancers including lung and breast cancer.And then of course, Vitamin C which boosts immunity. Apples are very rich in Phytonutrients including Vitamins A and E and beta carotene, which all help lower the risk of heart disease, diabetes and asthma.

        Another interesting thing is that an apple is actually low in calorie density. No wonder they say that apples are a good diet snack because even if you eat a lot, umber of calories are low and it will help you feel full right away.


        So, with all these amazing benefits and more, you could say that apples are awesome! And giving 100% pure apple juice to our family is obviously a great thing to do. Thankfully there's Mott's 100% Apple Juice!

Finally, Anti-Acne Products That Work for Me: AcneCare!

AcneCare set

        I wish I had beautiful smooth skin. But I don't. Eversince I hit puberty, pimples became a natural occurrence in my face. In fact, I sometimes feel like everyone else I see has smooth pimple-free skin except me. Don't get me wrong I'm not saying beauty is based on appearances, but let's face it... acne is NOT COOL! 

        If I had a bit more monthly earning, I would regularly go to a dermatologist. But I don't. So I've been looking for something I can buy in usual drug stores that will actually work on at least taming down my break-outs. And I am happy to share with you that I may just have found THE ONE!

And this is AcneCare!!!

Event Rescheduled!:The First Ever Knorr Lutong Nanay Nutrition Program Food Fair!


        One of the reasons why i don't really cook is that for some reason I have this impression that cooking is hard and entails a lot of details that could mess up your dish if you don't follow step by step and getting the measurement right down to the smallest milliliter or whatever. (Go figure). But Knorr proves that this isn't the case.  

croquettes

        In a mission to fight malnutrition through barangays and communities, Knorr promotes how important it is to prepare healthy meals, and stress the point that "healthy" doesn't necessarily mean "expensive". This way. each mom can learn how to prepare nutritious food for their kids. (Ouch! Okay I'm listening!)

        In partnership with Kabisig ng Kalahi for the Metro Manila leg of the initiative, they aim to create a sustainable nutrition program that teaches meals that are easy to cook but also healthy at the same time.

My First Set of Baby Stuff Cleaners: Cycles and Cradle


"Nesting".

        No I don't mean the house of a bird. Nesting, in pregnancy world, means that phase where pregnant women suddenly has this very strong urge to get obsessed about something as preparation for the coming baby. It's different per person. Some like to clean all day, some like to organize cabinets, or prepare the nursery, etc.

The nursery. 4 years ago.
        I, on the other hand,  was obsessed with buying onesies (and receiving hand-me-downs too) for Rain when I was pregnant. Then I would fix the new cabinet my Dad had made for Rain and fix all the unfamiliar baby products I received from Mom Expo at that time. (I'm a first time mom so everything looked so alien to me) 

        So with all those baby clothes, I was going to have to wash them before Rain was born. And at that time I learned that I couldn't just use any laundry soap for those newborn clothes. I needed a gentle laundry soap. Something that could never hurt a baby's sensitive skin. That's when I found Cycles on the shelf of a supermarket.


Cycles laundry products

        Pastel colored box and bottles with a cute font and cute clothesline drawing. Of course it immediately caught my attention. And on the top it says hypoallergenic. phosphate free. "SAFE detergent for baby's sensitive skin". Of course, I was sold! And the good impression didn't only apply to the packaging. I really fell in love with it as soon as I used it on Rain's clothes. That mild fragrant smell even made me fall in love with it more. This product is definitely specially made for babies.
