Shopkins Season 4 and Shoppies Jessicake Unboxing!

Shopkins Toy Kingdom

        I've been wanting to get Rain some Shopkins the moment I saw it in Toy Kingdom way back. But because she was still 3 years old at that time, I had to stop myself because the parts are quite small. It was tough because they all looked so cute and it looked like fun collecting them! But now that Rain is over 4 years old, it's Shopkins time!!!

Why We Love The SchoolRoom!

The SchoolRoom

        I remember the last time I was in The SchoolRoom. It was years ago. I went with my cousin as she took her daughter there. I remember my cousin saying she really liked the school. Flashback to 2016, I was happy to see they were still open. And still in the very same location at the heart of Ortigas Center. And this time, Rain and I were there to check out the place.

        Although I'm okay with Rain's current school, the main reason why I chose it is because it's so near from our house. But honestly speaking, if I had checked The SchoolRoom a year ago I would have really considered enrolling her there. And I will show you why.

The Postpaid You’ve Been Waiting For: Globe myStarter Plan! (And a chance to win a Palawan Trip!)

        I remember talking to my frantic sister one day as she hurries to the convenient store to load her pre-paid phone. She’s in her late 20s, a working girl, and sometimes have a lot on her plate. Her days can be very busy. So I was telling her that it might be time for her to get a reliable budget-friendly starter plan. But she’s always loved her pre-paid because she gets to control her budget for her mobile usage. While this might work for her care-free worry-free self 5 years ago, she has more responsibilities now. She has more adventures to go through.

        She’s always been holding off on signing up for a plan because she’s worried about getting shocking bills and stuff, plus she didn’t like the hassle of changing her number and updating everyone on her phonebook. And I don’t blame her. But I still believed she needed a reliable post-paid plan.

        And so, the timing couldn’t be better when Globe promotes their myStarter Plan. It’s an amazing post-paid plan that has all the basics you will need but is very convenient to migrate to and more importantly, unbelievably budget-friendly!

The Lion Guard: Return of the Roar on Disney Channel

        I love Disney. If I had a peso for every time I say this, I would be rich. But it's true. I really appreciate all the work that they do to come up with new shows, stories, and characters that kids will love. I remember while watching the Anniversary concert of Disney, one interview really stuck with me. It was the interview of Pixar's big boss John Lasseter, and he said that when Disney / Pixar creates characters, they don't just draw them and make them move. They create characters that have soul and make them come to life. This is so true. Every character created in Disney are characters that audiences will either love, or hate (villains), or empathize with. And this is Disney's way of continuously captivating every child's heart, and every child-at-heart.

        Last March 20, 2016 at 11am on Disney Channel, the world finally met 5 new Disney characters in an old-new Disney favorite. The Lion King's epic story continues with THE LION GUARD: RETURN OF THE ROAR television movie! Starring Simba and Nala's son, Kion, and the rest of his friends who has become a team of animals tasked with keeping peace in the Pride Lands. It's an interesting concept! They're basically like animal heroes (or unlikely heroes for that matter), each having their own strengths and roles.

        And then on April 17, at 8:30 AM, The Lion Guard Television Series will premier on Disney Channel!

Meet the Lion Guard!:

And a year ago, they have opened in Manila. And we were lucky to join the celebration of their 1st Anniversary!

Greenwich Hawaiian Overload!

        With all the fancy pizza flavors, sometimes there's one simple flavor that comforts me. And that's Hawaiian. In fact, even my little Rainbow loves Hawaiian Pizza because of the pineapples. She picks them out and eats it.

Greenwich Hawaiian Overload

        But anyway, this summer, Greenwhich recently launched their newest special flavor that will delight Hawaiian Pizza lovers.... the Hawaiian Pizza Overload!

The Boutique Bed and Breakfast: A Personalized Boutique Hotel Experience!

The Boutique Bed and Breakfast Tagaytay

        Often times when the family is looking for a place that's not so far, but has a cooler climate, Tagaytay's usually the place to be. Tagaytay has changed a lot since my first few visits. More buildings, more commercial centers... But it's nice to know that there are still a lot of places you can stay which makes you feel like you're in some hidden paradise, even though the location is very convenient and accessible! This romantic hidden place is The Boutique Bed and Breakfast.
