Davao Bloggers Movie Night - Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them

December 14, 2016 0 Comments

I was reading an eBook of Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them a day before I knew there would be another Davao Bloggers Movie Night. I was reading up to this part before watching the movie along with the other members of the Davao Bloggers Society.


I actually enjoyed reading the e-book after watching the movie... :D

Celebrating Another Good Year with Good Life and Doña Elena!

November 24, 2016 0 Comments
Early this month, I celebrated another good year with Good Life and Doña Elena! :)

I thank God for giving me another good year to celebrate life. I am indeed grateful for all the things that he has given me, most especially the gift of life, the gift of family and the gift of friends...

We just have a simple celebration at home together with my husband, daughter, sister-in-law and her son and one of my best friend for more than 10 years...

I am not that good in cooking but I am blessed to have a husband and a sister-in-law who are great in cooking. Cooking Pasta is my sister-in-law's specialty and so she is the one who cooked it using the ingredients from Doña Elena which are the following: Al Dente Pasa Excellente Penne Rigate, Diced Tomato and Olive Oil. Other ingredients are the ground beef, sliced hotdogs, spaghetti sauce, minced onions and garlic, salt and pepper.


It taste really good and Doña Elena Al Dente pasta lives up to its name as being "al dente" or "firm to the bite".
 

My hubby also prepared Sinuglaw marinated in Good Life's Sesame Oil, soy sauce, pepper, garlic, and calamansi.


We grilled the  pork and chopped it and then we added the sliced cucumbers and onions. The Good Life Sesame Oil can also be added into sauces as a seasoning, or use it to finish cooked dishes for that extra hint of smokiness.


This is the healthy salad that my hubby also prepared, it has lettuce, tomatoes, cucumber, grapes, hard boiled egg with squeezed dalandan. The sauce which I haven't got the chance to take a photo of, is mixture of the following: mayonnaise, honey, squeezed dalandan, pepper, pinch of salt and sugar..


It was a happy day and I was surprised because I didn't expect that they have a surprise for me. They've bought brownies from our neighbor, which taste really good by the way. Then, I blow the candle and make a wish... :)


I am so thankful to have my family and thank you to everyone who greeted me on my birthday. Thank you also to Fly Ace Corporation for sharing the Good Life and Doña Elena products to us... Check out Good Life and Doña Elena Cusinera Club at Facebook for more of their products, recipes, tips, updates and more! :)

To recognize and honor the mothers all over the country, Alaska Milk has initiated the Search for Ginang Alaska. The search aims to recognize mothers for their personal achievements, their remarkable dedication to their families, and their numerous contributions to their communities.

The Ginang Alaska also opens a door of opportunities that can empower mothers and help them improve their lives. The Search for Ginang Alaska has started way back in 2003. It was then called, Alaska Ginang Reyna ng Santacruzan. Over the years, the event name evolved to become simply Ginang Alaska.

And last October 22, 2016, the first leg for the Search for Ginang Alaska 2016 was held here in Davao City, at People's Park. Everyone had fun during the Free Zumba activity and breakfast is then served which is Pandesal and Champorado.

Herbal Steam Inhalation: Natural Home Remedy for Nasal Congestion

October 31, 2016 0 Comments
My daughter, Miel has colds and cough (due to postnasal drip) again last week. So, 3 days ago we tried to make a homemade remedy to ease stuffy nose or nasal congestion. It is a tip we had from our good neighbor by the way. 

Oregano and Vicks Vaprub

Good thing we have a lot of Oregano plants in our front and backyard so we make use of it and picked a handful of leaves. We washed the Oregano leaves and crushed it, then we add boiling water and Vicks Vaporub. After we mixed them all, we let my daughter breathe in the steam for a while.

After the Herbal Steam Inhalation with Oregano and Vicks Vaporub, Miel still has cough and colds but the day after, she doesn't cough that much and today, she's okay and don't have cough and colds anymore. I think this herbal steam inhalation is really effective to ease stuffy nose and I guess for coughs too! And all we need are these 3 things: Oregano leaves, Boiling Water and Vicks Vaporub... :)

But, if you don't have Oregano, you can also try Peppermint, Eucalyptus, Thyme, Sage and Ginger (I haven't tried it though but if I'll have, I'll surely try it).

This is so easy and an effective home remedy, we were really surprised at how effective it was for us. I hope it can help others too that's why I blogged about this. :)

What worked for us might not worked for everyone, so if you're child is not feeling better, you can try to consult his/her Pediatrician to check him/her thoroughly... And by the way, when doing the Herbal Steam Inhalation, let your child stay still and be careful not to let your child play around because she/he might get hurt by the boiling/hot water.

Calamansi and Honey Juice - A Natural Way to Cure Cough and Colds

October 18, 2016 0 Comments
When I was still a kid, my grandmother would make us Calamansi and Honey juice whenever we have cough, colds, or both. It's natural and effective in our experience... Now that I became a mother, as much as I wanted to, I don't like my daughter to take a lot of medicines especially Antibiotics or Antibacterial medicines, but there's always an exception if worst comes to worst. If possible I try to make juices out of natural products like Calamansi and Honey

Both Honey and Calamansi has antibacterial and antiviral properties and calamansi is high in Vitamin C which is good for boosting our immune system. I don't have to worry letting my daughter drink calamansi and honey juice because it's natural and proven to be effective, in our experience. Unless your kid is allergic to any of the two, then you shouldn't let them take it.

Recently, Miel had cough and colds, so, we bought calamansi and honey. It's actually my first time to buy honey in the supermarket and it's also our first time to try the Mt. Apo Honey which is actually made in here Davao. We usually buy honey from our neighbor before but we just moved far away from the place we used to live, so I opted to buy honey in the supermarket instead. ;)

Anyway, I made Calamansi and Honey juice for my Miel and I hope her cough will be gone soon..
