Boredom Jar - A Great Way to Reduce Screen Time

Thursday, December 20, 2018 0 Comments
Kids nowadays are not getting enough exercise, they are so fond of using smartphones, tablets and other gadgets for entertainment. It's nice because some apps are educational but excessive use of it might lead to serious health issues. I've seen a lot of stories about the effects and dangers of excessive screen time on children especially the younger ones. That's why I limit my daughter's screen time. I rarely let her use our phones or tablet, although sometimes I let her watch movies during weekends only. I want her to experience playing outside with other children without using any gadgets and enjoy her childhood like I enjoyed mine. :)

My daughter always say "I'm bored" especially when she see a kid or group of kids playing with their gadgets. I have also observed that when the screen time is over, she keep on saying "I'm bored", which is already annoying because she'll keep on bugging you thinking she will get to use the gadgets again if she'll cry and persist on what she wants. I pity her sometimes, thinking she's the only one who don't have a gadget to play on, but I stand firm on my decision to lessen her screen time to no screen time at all (if it can be helped) because it is for her own good anyway. I don't really give in to the tantrums, and when I say "NO", it's already final and I have to be firm about it.

Boredom Jar Activity Lists - Mama Miah

So, when I found out about the Boredom Jar just recently, I was so happy and I must say, it is really effective! I made my own list and when I heard her say "I'm bored" again, I told her about the Boredom Jar and how it works. As I was writing and adding up more tasks, my little one helped me fold the papers and she also thought of some things to do and add it up to her Boredom Jar! Hahaha!

I actually have no extra jar at home, so I make use of our old coin bank and use it as our Boredom Jar. ;)

By the way, here are some of the things she did today because she is bored... I loved the note that she made for me... She's so sweet... <3

Boredom Jar Activity Lists

I have a lot of things to add up on our list soon, because I know she's so hooked up with this activity and had picked a lot of papers inside and did all of them. I guess I made her busy and kept her boredom away. What a great way to unplugged. Happy Mom here... :)

“For all Your goodness I will keep on singing, 10,000 reasons for my heart to find.”

La Germania Welcome Chefs and Cooks from Davao

Monday, October 01, 2018 1 Comments
Home cooks and chefs from Davao were in for a treat as La Germania brought in its first-ever roadshow to the city. The premier cooking range brand opened a one-of-kind cooking and homemaking expo dubbed Welcome Home at the Activity Center of Abreeza Mall last September 8-9, 2018. Not your typical show, the Welcome Home mobile exhibit featured the wide range of La Germania products and allowed both home cooks and chefs to get a glimpse and feel of what an efficient kitchen range could do for a household.

A full showcase for everyone
To kick-off the mobile exhibit, brand representatives and advocates started the affair with a ceremonial ribbon-cutting ceremony that marked the official opening of the Pop-up Gallery. After which, guests and La Germania followers were regaled with various workshops and demos.

Visitors also enjoyed whiling away the time at the La Germania gallery where they handled and inspected various La Germania products on display. The showcase provided an excellent opportunity for visitors to experience first-hand the fine quality of these tools.

Cooking: An experience in itself
Filipinos have always been known to have a fondness for excellent food and drink – especially when it comes to home cooking. With this in mind, La Germania paid host to a cooking demo led by celebrity chef Jeremy Favia of TV5’s Chef vs. Mom fame. The workshop themed “the art of cooking “beautifully” taught Welcome Home participants how to spice up what are considered traditional Filipino meals La Germania style.

Chef Jeremy introduced sumptuous Filipino dishes with a twist that would surely liven up Filipino dinner tables. These recipes included a “Three Cheese Macaroni” and “Chicken Caldereta Hash”. These dishes, which are notches higher than the usual viands served in most households, could definitely tickle anybody’s palate.



Moms and their children aged six to 12 on the other hand, enjoyed a cupcake baking and decorating workshop headed by chef consultant and food stylist Karina Rodriguez who is best known for exclusive cooking and baking classes for kids and adults. Welcome Home participants, particularly kids, learned how to properly use an oven, and bake and decorate cupcakes. They also took home their baked masterpieces as well as branded hats and aprons as souvenirs.


Heartwarming home crafts
In addition to the cooking and baking demos, two other workshops were offered to participants. These included a Bento making workshop facilitated by Russet Cainglet and a Paper Flower making class headed by April San Pedro


Bento making is the art of packing a lunch box filled with food shaped into colorful images and cartoon characters so that they’re especially attractive for little kids. La Germania workshop participants tackled the various techniques to make these fun-packed meals tempting for even the pickiest eaters.

After making edible art, La Germania guests also learned how to make beautiful paper blooms that could be used to decorate their homes or apply in various craft projects.


There are dozens of ways you can make your hearth and home welcoming. Through La Germania’s Welcome Home mobile exhibit, you and your family members can find out how you can make your household warmer, more delightful and inviting.

Shane Filan Live in Davao!

Friday, September 07, 2018 0 Comments
Hello Davaoeños! I'm so happy to announce that Shane Filan will be in Davao, for his much-awaited live concert featuring Westlife’s greatest hits and more on Sunday, September 16th, 8:00pm at the SMX Convention Center-Davao of SM Lanang Premier. Shane Filan will be joined by two of the best OPM artist today, Mr. Jed Madela and Ms. Morisette Amon.

Davao fans will hear their favorite hits like “Swear It Again”, “Uptown Girl”, “If I Let You Go”, “World of Our Own”, “You Raise Me Up”, “My Love”, “Everything To Me”, “Need You Now”, “Heaven”, “Unbreakable”, “What About Now”, Beautiful in White”, “About You” and more.

With his third album, Love Always, delighting both fans and critics, Shane’s solo career is quickly gaining momentum. It’s already been a huge hit all over Asia, securing the number one spot in the Philippines and Indonesia, Love Always has proved a major hit with fans. Shane is also thrilled with the album’s top five position in the UK charts, placing him on an even footing with the biggest names in world music.
Shane says ‘This is the first time I have put live tracks on the album. I go on tour so much now that I thought it would be nice to include something that people haven’t had before. There will also be two new songs which I wrote before Christmas and I am so proud of them. ‘Back to you’ is the new single and a song I am very close to. The track is about being on the road the whole time and being separated from those you love. You do it because it’s part of the job but you realize how much you miss the family.
Shane has cemented his position as one of the UK & Ireland’s most popular male solo artists, following phenomenal success with Westlife – one of the world’s most successful bands of the last few decades – and he shows no signs of slowing down. “There’s nothing that make me happier than singing and being on stage” he says, “it’s something I am very proud of and it’s what I want to be doing for the rest of my life.”

Growing up in the 90's and hearing Westlife songs on the radio makes me happy (yes, ang babaw lang ng kaligayanhan ko dati) and I even sing along whenever I hear their songs. ;)

I can't wait to watch Shane Filan Live in Davao and hear Westlife's greatest hits. One of my favorite song by Shane Filan is Beautiful in White and I'm actually listening to it right now while writing this post. ;)

My Simple Bento Snacks Made With Love

Wednesday, July 25, 2018 0 Comments
I started making Bento snacks for my daughter two years ago when she was in Nursery. I was always fascinated with cute and creative photos of Bento Box that I see on Facebook. I happen to know a fellow Mom who sells materials for making bento snacks and she also makes one for her kid who also happens to be in the same school as my daughter. So we met and I bought a few bento tools that I can add as decorations for my bento experiment.

Hello Kitty Bento Sandwich Hello Kitty Bento Sandwich

I am a newbie in bento making so I just rely on my cookie cutters and cutie food picks. I used some of my cookie cutters that I bought at Daiso before when I was still into baking and store the snack using our trusted Tupperware Square Divided Lunch Box and Tupperware's Sandwich Keeper.

Here are a few of the Simple Bento Snacks that I made with love... Making Bento Snacks is just easy especially when you have Bento Tools to make it look appealing to your kids that even those who are picky eaters can't resist eating the snacks you've prepared for them. ;)

Don't be afraid to take the plunge...

Don't be afraid to take the plunge. by Mama Miah

I know, it's easier said than done... Sometimes it's hard to really do something because you're afraid of what could happen. But after how many years, I realized, if I started doing what I've really wanted to do and have taken the risk, I wouldn't be thinking of "What Ifs" today... So, from now on, I'll try not to be afraid anymore, to take risks and do the best that I can to make things work.

Smart and Talk 'N Text Ticket Load

Tuesday, February 13, 2018 5 Comments
Smart Ticket Load

It's always good to have an extra Smart Ticket Load. I usually buy this at 711. What I liked about buying ticket loads, is that I can use it in times of emergency, especially when you are in a place where there are no loading station. The lowest load you can buy is at P10 and you can buy it for the same price, unlike in the usual store loaders where they charge an additional P3 for every transaction.

For P50, I can use it to register to GIGASURF50. Just type GIGA50 and send it to 9999 and you'll have UNLI TEXTS TO ALL NETWORKS together w/ 1GB data +300MB for YouTube, iflix & more. Valid for 3 days!


By the way, I've misplaced my old mobile phone for a month and this is the last photo that I've taken with it. I remember I went to 711 to buy the Ticket Loads when I took this shot. Unfortunately, there's no available ticket load for Smart, just Talk 'N Text (TNT). Anyways, I still bought it because I can still use it on my Smart Prepaid Sim. After scratching the protective ink, I just change the starting number to 1510 instead of 1511, dial 1510 + the 14 digit pin numbers and send, then you will receive your load in a few seconds.

For those who didn't know this trick, I hope this helps. As for my old phone, we just found it a while ago... For those people who had been contacting me through my old smart sim, I'm sorry if I haven't received any of your messages. Now you know why...

In case, there are no available Smart Ticket Load, you can also buy the Talk 'N Text Ticket Load or the other way around, since Talk 'N Text is a sister company of Smart Communications, Inc. :)

Be sure to buy an extra Ticket Load, because it really helps in times of emergencies. ;)

Aside from Best Nine, there's also another app that can generate your best photos on Instagram for the year 2017.You can also download the Top Nine - Best of 2017 app or go to their website http://topnine.co, all you have to do is enter your Instagram username and you'll get an email from them where you can download your Top Nine photos.

Both apps requires you to login if your account is not public, unlike in the web version where you don't need to login anymore.

Most of the photos that I have uploaded on Instagram is about me and family of course,  my Cactus and Succulents plant collection, foods that we eat and places we go to highlighting my beloved City of Davao, blogging events and the others are from our Organization's sponsors.
