Zip Line at Outland Adventure Davao City

May 16, 2016 0 Comments
The Xcelerator Zip Line

This was my first Zip Line experience at Outland Adventure. This is 5 years ago, yeah, I'm still single at that time. LOL. I had to make a post about this because I lost my old post when I forgot to renew my domain 5 years ago. Yeah, silly me, I got too busy and didn't spend much time checking my emails or going online.

So, I'm making another post now about my  Zip Line experience. I was really nervous at that time because I am afraid of heights. It was an amazing experience for me because I have somehow overcome my fear of heights and I also have experienced to ride in one of the longest zip lines here in Davao City. The view was breathtaking too which I only get to notice when I was in the middle of the line.

After zipping, my knees were shaking but I feel good inside. It's a good feeling knowing you just did what you thought you couldn't do. The experience was worth it and yeah, it was awesome! :)

If you are an adventurous person, try and experience their Zip Line and other services.

Outland Adventure is open on:

Wed-Sat: 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Sun: 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm

They're Closed on Monday and Tuesday.

They're located at Purok 7 Mahayahay, Diversion Road, Barangay Langub, 8000 Davao City.

ASUS Zenfone Max

May 02, 2016 0 Comments
I really like ASUS Zenfone Max! Simply because of its battery performance... Yup! It has a 5000mAh battery that can last for days and you can also use it as a power bank in case your other gadgets needed charging.

I really don't care much of the other specifications of a cellphone, what matter most to me is its battery life... My phone sucks! I hate that its battery couldn't last a day or even half a day! That's why I always bring a power bank whenever I go out. But there are times that I forgot to charge my power bank and so my phone dies and it sucks when you have an important call or message that you had to respond to and your phone's dead. 

When I first heard of ASUS Zenfone Max last February, I got excited when I read it's features online... I really wanted to have one! Hahahaha!


Here's ASUS Zenfone Max Specifications:
  • Display: 5.5", 1280 x 720 (HD) IPS display with Gorilla Glass 4
  • Operating System: Android 5.0 Lollipop with Asus ZenUI
  • Processor: Qualcomm MSM8916
  • Camera (Rear l Front): 13MP with autofocus l 5MP
  • Memory (RAM l ROM): 2GB l 16GB
  • Connectivity: WiFi 802.11n, Wi-Fi Direct, Bluetooth v4.0
  • SIM: Dual
  • Battery: 5000mAh, lithium-ion
I like that it has a dual sim... I can use my personal sim and the other one for business in just one phone, just like the one I am using now... but it's battery sucks! Hahaha! I mentioned it again... Well, been mentioning that for quite a while now... hoping... and praying... that hubby will get tired of me talking about it and just buy me a Zenfone Max! Hahahaha! I wish!


Anyways, ASUS Philippines had 1 Million Incredible Fans so they'd like to express their thanks starting with a promo price in one of their coolest phones, the Zenfone Max!

Awww... It's price dropped from PHP 8,495 to PHP 7,995 starting today. Check out ASUS Philippines' Drop the Heat! 7 Days of Summer Zenfone Promo!

Miel's first Horse-riding Experience

April 25, 2016 0 Comments

Miel is only 4 years old and she wanted to try to ride the horse. I asked her if she's not scared or anything and she said she's not scared. I was having second thoughts if I'll let her or not... I saw some kids and kids almost her age ride the horse and  they were just fine afterwards, so I thought it would be okay for Miel to experience it.


This was in Eden Nature Park and Resort, Toril, Davao City...

She was behaved and relaxed the whole time, she said she was happy and I can see it because she's smiling from start to finish... :) I'm glad I let her experience this memorable moment, her first horse-riding experience was great...

Note: The fee for the Horseback riding is PHP 85.00 :)

Children's Health at Risk Due to Haze

October 26, 2015 1 Comments
Because of the Haze on Indonesia, more nearby countries in South-East Asia have been affected and our country is one of them, the Philippines. This is alarming because it's putting not just the children's health at risk but all of the people who will be exposed to the haze. Most of the ones who are suffering are the children and babies whose immune system are still immature.

I've been seeing news about children who had been really affected by the haze, most especially the babies who had been exposed to this hazardous smoke. Some had lived while the others had suffered and died. 

What causes the haze in Indonesia?
The haze is caused by farmers clearing land for plantations for the palm oil, pulp and paper industries, primarily in the Indonesian province of Kalimantan on Borneo and the island of Sumatra. [Source]
There are lots of flights that has been cancelled too due to this haze, not just here in Southern Mindanao but also countries like Singapore and Malaysia. There are also a lot of people in Indonesia who had suffered and died of acute respiratory tract infections. [Information on this website]



Now the haze already reached Davao City, our hometown. I've seen one post on Facebook by a Mom whose kids had been sick then after that a lot of moms have commented and shared that their toddlers and kids were sick too (cough, colds, allergies, asthma, etc.), I guess it's all because of this haze from Indonesia. 

Because of this we have limited our outdoor activities and refrain from going outside especially for our daughter, Miel. My daughter currently has cough and colds too and she had allergies since she was a baby. I am worried that this haze could worsen her condition, so as much as possible we limit ourselves from going out and if we do, we let her wear a mask. We had to stick on our usual routine, home-day care-home and if possible just stay at home if there's no need to go outside. So for those parents who had kids who has history of asthma and other types of allergies, let your kids wear masks for their own safety. Here's the Department of Health (DOH) Health Advisory during Haze:


Stay Safe everyone! I hope and  pray that this Haze will end SOON!

Causes, Treatment and Prevention of Diaper Rash

September 27, 2015 0 Comments
What is diaper rash? A Diaper rash (diaper dermatitis) is a skin irritation, usually a reddish color on a baby's genital area or bottom. Diaper rash is one of the most common dermatological conditions and most common skin disorder of early childhood.

Our babies have a delicate skin, so some babies can get a diaper rash even if his/her parents frequently change their diapers because of skin sensitivity. But aside from that, What Causes a Diaper Rash? 

There are a lot of things that can cause a diaper rash and here are some of the reasons why:
  • Irritation from using a new product
  • Irritation from stool and urine
  • Allergic reactions to diaper
  • Introduction of new foods
  • Bacterial or yeast (fungal) infection
  • Chafing or rubbing
To treat your baby's diaper rash, let her/him go diaper-free as much as possible. Wash your hands before every diaper change. If possible wash and clean the affected areas with mild soap or cleanser and then make sure that the skin is dry before applying any creams or ointments.

What are the creams and ointments that you used when your baby had diaper rash?

As for me, I have tried using Petroleum Jelly (Vaseline) and it helped lessen my baby's diaper rash
But there's this one diaper rash ointment that my mother-in-law suggested which is Vandol. It's very effective and  it really helped soothe my baby's irritating rashes.

How about you, what's the best diaper rash creams or ointments have you tried that worked well for your baby?
