February 21, 2021 0 Comments

Riding hailing app like Grab is so convenient to use during this time of pandemic where commuting is hard especially for us who lived so far from the City. But with just a few taps on the Grab app, we can have our ride in just a few minutes and arrive safely at our destination. Aside from transportation, Grab's other services like food delivery, shopping, and parcel delivery provide a hassle-free experience for all of us who rely so much on online transactions. 


Here's a treat to all Davaoeños from the leading super app in Southeast Asia, Grab recently partnered with Phoenix Petroleum to give P200 FREE fuel vouchers to new Grab users in Davao City when they create their accounts for the first time. This partnership aims to encourage Davao drivers to adopt cashless payments through GrabPay when they gas up with the homegrown oil company.

We hope that the app and its various services such as transportation, food delivery, shopping, and parcel delivery, can create meaningful value in the lives of the residents and be a catalyst for further growth of this progressive city. We also want to encourage more people to adopt cashless payments through our in-app wallet GrabPay, in support of the government’s goal of creating a digital economy.”


The company hopes that the campaign will help further gain the trust and loyalty of Davaoenos, especially since Phoenix originated in Davao, and maintains its headquarters in the city, said Phoenix Petroleum Chief Operating Officer Henry Albert Fadullon.


“Together with Grab, we want to strengthen our relationship with Davaoenos as we offer more value and convenience. Aside from the fuel voucher exclusive to new Grab app users, we also offer the ‘Pinoy Tsuper Card’ (PTC)-Grab, a loyalty rewards card made available especially for Grab drivers, “ said Fadullon. “No matter who they are, whether they are public utility drivers or private ones, we want them to know that they can enjoy perks and discounts when they gas up with Phoenix and use their rewards card for their transaction in any of our 11 stations in the city,” said Fadullon.

Ways To Prepare Your Home For Natural Disasters

February 15, 2021 0 Comments
Natural disasters are inevitable especially with the increasing global warming surface temperatures that are happening for the past years. Truly climate change has brought so many calamities and disasters not just in the Philippines but worldwide. It can hit us anytime without warning and with these occurrences, it is best to protect you and your family and start to Prepare Your Home For Natural Disasters.

Ways To Prepare Your Home For Natural Disasters

Here are some of the Ways To Prepare Your Home For Natural Disasters:

Prepare a Go Bag for each member of your family at home with first-aid supplies and their medicines if they have maintenance to take. Here are the essentials items to put in your Go-Bag: 
  • Important documents and cash sealed inside a plastic bag.
  • Water and Food that is not perishable and have long expiry dates
  • Whistles (one for each family member)
  • Flashlight with extra batteries and matches/lighter
  • Swiss knife
  • Powerbank/s
  • Toiletry and Hygiene supplies
  • Raincoat, Jacket, and/or Blanket
  • Extra clothes and underwears
  • Resealable plastic bags
  • Face masks and face shield
  • Paper and pen
  • Extra keys to your home 
Remember to put your Go Bags in a designated place and make sure that your family members know where they are located so you can just easily grab them in case of emergency.

Two of the most common natural disasters that our country is experiencing over the years are Earthquakes and Floods.

Earthquakes are unpredictable and can do damage to your homes, so if you live in a place where there are frequent earthquakes it's best to keep your appliances and other breakable items safe. Consider securing your tall bookshelves and cabinets and bolt them to the wall, this could prevent the furniture from falling down and keep you and your family safe. In an event of an earthquake, keep calm and be sure your family knows what to do to keep them safe by doing the "Duck, Cover, and Hold" practice. If it is safe, evacuate if necessary to further prevent any injuries and contact your emergency hotline for further assistance and help if you needed one.

After an earthquake, make sure to check your walls for cracks, other signs of structural damage, and electrical wiring issues that might endanger your family, and have them all repaired immediately.

Our country (Philippines) is visited by Typhoons every year by an average of 20. As we all know typhoons cause floods which may damage your homes and other properties. If you're living in a flood-prone area, you and your family should always be prepared, stay alert, and be informed by listening to the radio or watching TV news for flood warnings and updates. Turn off your gas tank, disconnect your electrical appliances and move it to a higher place to prevent any electrical problems and keep them safe should a flood enters your house. Also, keep your valuables in a safe place especially your important documents.

Be ready to evacuate at any moment and have your Go Bags and other emergency items accessible for everyone in your household to easily grab and go.

No one can predict some of the Natural Disasters from happening but you can prepare for them before it happens. By strengthening your homes and consider getting insurance, it may help protect yourself, your family, and your home from any danger and harm.

Good thing Malayan's Home Protect Plus covers many natural disasters and damages like Fire and Lightning, Earthquake Fire & Earthquake Shock, Typhoon & Flood, Riots, Strikes, and Malicious Damage, Bursting or Overflowing of Water Tanks, Pipes & Fittings, Sprinkler Leakage, Volcanic Eruption, Extended Coverage and Extension of Covers.

DIY Haircut at Home - Tipid Hacks for Everyone!

February 10, 2021 0 Comments

Out of the blue, I decided to cut my hair. My hair has grown long already and the last time I cut it was last summer, so I grab a scissor and started cutting my hair in front of the mirror in the bathroom (lol). 

Here is the output of my DIY Haircut. I also decided to dress up so when my daughter saw me with my new hairdo and outgoing clothes, she asked me: "Saan ka punta, Ma?" She's used to seeing me na nakapang-bahay lang since ECQ kaya nagulat at napatanong talaga siya.


I've been cutting my own hair ever since I was single and I still do it now that I am already a mother. I also cut my daughter's hair and my hubby's too with the help of a razor that we borrowed from my sister-in-law. By doing this, we can save money (tipid talaga) and since we are still in quarantine, it's best to just stay at home and do it yourself (DIY). 


It was hard the first time I did this, looking at the mirror while cutting your hair isn't that easy, especially when you can't see the back part of your hair. But, there's a trick to this DIY Haircut at Home and I'll share it with you


  1. The first thing you'll do is brush your hair and bring it all to the front then tie it with any hair ties or scrunchies you have. 
  2. Then, tie your hair again to the part where you want it to be cut, it's up to you on how short do you want it to be. 
  3. Then, you can start cutting your hair to that part and you're done! Easy, right? 


As for me, I cut it really short this time it's shoulder-length. I also like my hair to have that layered look, so what I do to get that look is I cut my hair vertically, just a few inches from the tip of my hair and that's it. My layered haircut is done! By the way, I just use a regular scissor. :)


And one last thing, be confident and trust yourself that you can do it! Good luck! ;) 


I hope this is DIY Haircut Tips and Hacks is helpful to you. I don't have a photo or video of myself doing this layered haircut though, but maybe next time I'll record it so it will be much easier to follow the steps. :)

Teaching My Daughter How to Cook

January 21, 2021 0 Comments

My daughter is interested in cooking, she's so curious and wants to get involved whenever we prepare and cook our food. She joined the Junior Chef's Club when she was in Grade 1 and they made a lot of no-bake and no-cook foods, most of which are desserts. Before, she would just watch us prepare our meal, and then later on she would volunteer to help prepare the ingredients. Since she's really interested to learn, we taught her how to prepare and cook simple foods like scrambled eggs and pancakes. 


For now, she only knows how to fry but there's this one-time where she got interested in how to cook the rice, so I taught her how to wash the rice first before cooking it. She just did it once and never did it again (LOL). I think she's more interested in making desserts because she enjoyed doing it.


I'm happy that she wants to learn how to cook, not all kids are interested in cooking. When I was her age, I am not interested in cooking that's why most of the food that I know is fried except for my favorite foods: adobo and pasta. Hahaha!


Cooking is a great activity for kids and one of the important life skills that they can learn. We just have to be patient in teaching them how to do it and supervise them during the cooking process for their safety, most especially in operating the stove and handling the knives. :)

Holcim Philippines Launches New Eco-Friendly Mortar Product

January 12, 2021 3 Comments
One of the country's leading cement provider has launched a new multipurpose mortar product called Holcim Multifix. This new innovative and easy-to-use product aids contractors and masons improve the quality of walls, floors, and tile installation in their building projects. 

Holcim Philippines Launches New Eco-Friendly Mortar Product - Multifix
  
The Holcim Multifix is a combination of sand and cement enhanced with polymer for outstanding adhesion compared to on-site mixed mortars as well as better crack resistance, this can be used just by adding water. It is produced in the company’s drymix plant removing the need for masons to combine materials on site thus ensuring uniform quality and right proportions for the application of the mortar. This product reduces wastes of building materials such as sand because it's factory produced, making it safer and environment-friendly. 

Holcim Multifix helps address common challenges of builders in producing mortars such as high-quality raw materials and varying skill levels of workers. Having poor quality mortars is one of the main reasons that impact the quality of the walls said Holcim Senior Vice President for Marketing and Innovation, Ram Maganti. Aside from being an excellent wall plaster, Holcim Multifix can also be used for screeding, a finishing layer of concrete slabs for leveling floors. It can also be used for tile laying. 

“We developed Holcim Multifix in line with our company’s commitment to continuously produce innovative building solutions that do not just bring value to our customers but are also sustainable for the environment. Holcim Multifix helps make it easier for our partner builders to produce good quality walls. It is factory-mixed using Holcim cement and quality sand for superior performance. ”

Holcim Multifix is the only all-in-one drymix product in the Philippines. “Holcim Multifix’s Five-Star Advantage means more business for contractors as it helps improve building quality and lessens reworks that can eat up time for additional projects. The simplicity of Holcim Multifix, meanwhile, provides homeowners convenience and value for money,” Maganti added. 

The Holcim Multifix is currently available as 25-kilogram bags in select locations in Luzon and will be available in Mindanao in the first quarter of 2021. The Multifix is the latest in the company’s line of drymix products which includes Holcim Skim Coat and Holcim Tile Adhesive.

A Fun and Learning Picnic Session + Useful Tips for a Healthy Toddlerhood from the Experts

November 08, 2020 0 Comments
NIDO 3+ Todo Expert TIPS (Toddler Indoor Picnic Sessions)

We had a fun and learning experience during the NIDO 3+ Todo Expert TIPS (Toddler Indoor Picnic Sessions) held last month. Thanks to NIDO, we really had fun and it was a breather for us parents since we are stuck at home for months since the quarantine started, so glad to experience this unique event and first-ever virtual picnic with other moms and kids from all over the country. It was an afternoon of exciting games, fun activities like AR (augmented reality), and useful toddlerhood tips from nutrition experts. 

NIDO 3+ Todo Expert TIPS (Toddler Indoor Picnic Sessions)

Raising a child is never easy and NIDO® 3+ is one with parents in prioritizing the health and well-being of their kids especially in this new reality where immunity is a prime concern. As a parent, it is helpful to listen to experts who can guide you in protecting and supporting your 3+ toddlers during these unprecedented times. During the event, nutrition experts shared advice on how to provide the right nutrition and health protection to help your 3+ toddlers become a #TodoExplorer. 

NIDO 3+ Marian and Zia Dantes

Here are some Todo Expert Tips from the event, to guide parents who seek to give the best support for their 3+ toddlers:


Get to know the ins and outs of 3+ toddlerhood years


Challenging yet fulfilling, the journey of toddlerhood may be overwhelming for some parents, that is why NIDO® 3+ gathers expert tips to help parents know more about what goes through a child’s life and know how best to support it. 

3+ toddlerhood is when kids begin to explore, start self-discovery, and a very critical period in their growth and development. During the Todo Expert T.I.P.S event, parents learn from the invited experts what key developments do a 3+ toddler goes through during this stage. From physical, cognitive, and psychosocial development, it is during this time that the toddlers start walking and running, interacting with family and kids, exploring the environment, and learning during active play. To ensure healthy growth and development, parents must support their +3 toddlers’ brain, body, and behavior development by providing them with proper nutrition.


Mind the nutritional gaps 


Based on a global project collaboration between Nestle Research Center and the Philippines’ Food and Nutrition Research Institute, there is an inadequate intake of important vitamins and minerals in all age groups of Filipino children. These nutrients are important to support physical and cognitive growth and development as well as normal immune function during toddlerhood.


As evidenced in scientific studies and dietary surveys, this inadequacy is likely a result of the typical Filipino diet which is heavy on carbohydrates and refined sugars, and not enough vegetables, fruits, and age-appropriate milk. 

Experts constantly remind parents that they play a key role in shaping their +3 toddlers’ diet, and how growing up milk plays a valuable role in meeting the nutritional needs. 


As the true expert in 3+ toddlerhood, NIDO® 3+, the #1 Growing Up Milk, developed the NUTRITODS™ program which is a scientific program specially designed by experts to address the growing up needs of Filipino toddlers through the nutrient it contains. Through the program, the new NIDO® 3+ is developed to be rich in age-appropriate nutrients, such as LACTOBACILLUS PROTECTUS®, 50% More protection nutrients like Vitamins A, C, E, DHA, PREBIO3®, Iron, Zinc, and other essential vitamins & minerals, and has no table sugar added. This is to ensure that our 3+ toddlers are TODO protected and can be #TodoExplorers as they continue to grow and develop.


Be mindful of your toddler’s daily sugar intake


Choosing the right growing up milk is not just about the nutrients, as parents also have to check the label for its sugar content. The typical Filipino diet, which includes many milk products and sweetened beverages, is filled with refined sugars that can lead to problems such as dental issues as well as increased risk of obesity and diabetes.

In fact, the World Health Organization recommends that daily sugar intake should not be more than 7 teaspoons a day. Ensuring that every 3+ toddler gets enough healthy energy to be a #TodoExplorer, NIDO® 3+ uses lactose, a naturally occurring type of sugar, and has no hidden sucrose and may help in the digestion of calcium needed for bone development. 


Parents always want the best for their kids, thankfully NIDO® 3+ finds ways to help parents in providing the best nutrition and support for their kids especially during this uncertain time.
