July 18, 2019


I've been thinking of so many things lately since I just turned 46 last July 12. Things like all the activities I want to accomplish, the legacy I want to leave to my family and society. It's great that I was able to join the Bucket List Summit PressCon at Legend Villas.


'YOLO’ – you have certainly heard it several times or even came across this acronym as a hashtag on a friend’s post in the social media. A tickle in your curiosity, have you ever asked yourself what YOLO really means? YOLO is the acronym of ‘You Only Live Once’ which was popularized by a renowned rapper in one of his songs. But there is certainly a more profound meaning in ‘YOLO’.
Given the frailty and brevity of human life, anything can happen to you at any point in your life. Set your mind that every day is a miracle and that you only live once so why not make the most out of it? It is always a yes to do the things you most loved and savor each moment like it is the last. Regardless of your age, social status, condition, and circumstances, it is never too late to prepare yourself to live your life only once. To start, you can create your own Bucket List.
Have you ever watched the movie ‘The Bucket List’? Played by Morgan Freeman and Jack Nicholson, it is about two strangers, one a billionaire and one a mechanic, who were brought with the news that they have reached the terminal stage of their life. Realizing that they have little time left to complete the things they have to do and to be reconciled to the ones they love, they decided to make a Bucket List – it is a list of things that they want to do before they die. They eventually set out into the world against their doctor’s medical advice and took on their adventure of a lifetime. This movie provides an accurate mental picture of how short the human life can be regardless of your social standing and how you can never be able to turn back the time to change the past.
Since the release of this movie, the term 'Bucket List' is now being generally used by people from all around the world to mean that you only live once so do everything you can possibly do given a limited amount of time. Many people have seriously considered YOLO as a way of living and they even created their own Bucket List. Some set out for the thrill of an adventure, some traveled to their dream destination, some would still start school at a later age, some would prefer doing things right the first time every time, some would always choose to do what they always wanted to regardless of the social stigma and taboos.
Isn't it fulfilling to create a Bucket List and see how each item on your list is progressively being achieved? Have you ever considered creating your own Bucket List because ‘YOLO’? 

With that said, I am encouraging you to join Bucket List Summit, a platform that brings together leaders, speakers, thinkers, and experts who can help you be prepared emotionally, physically, mentally, spiritually, and financially towards a life well-lived. 
The summit will be held on October 19-20, 2019 at the SMX Aura where renowned speakers will talk about the value and appreciation of life, financial wellness, spiritual enlightenment, physical challenges and its related solutions, psychological interventions, death and life, and more. 
Everybody deserves a quality life. Participate in this event now and know more about how you can live your life only once but to the fullest.  For more information, please call Happy Events at (02) 637-9084 or email us at happyeventsbydeegee@gmail.com.

Lifetime Free Gas, Oh My Gas Promo.

SEAOIL, the leading independent fuel provider in the Philippines, will be giving away a lifetime supply of free gas to 4 lucky motorists starting this July. The “Lifetime Free Gas, Oh My Gas!” promo, which continues to be the only one of its kind in the world, makes a comeback on its third year.  SEAOIL customers can also expect to win over 100,000 instant prizes through peel-off cards. A total of half a million worth of SEAOIL gift cards will be raffled off in monthly draws. To qualify, a customer must gas up at least P500 worth of Extreme 97, Extreme 95, Extreme U, Extreme Diesel fuels and/or SEAOIL Lubricants at any SEAOIL station nationwide. Customers can double their chances of winning if they register at www.lifetimefreegas.com. The “Oh My Gas!” promo runs from July 18 to October 18, 2019. Winners of this year’s promo will be determined via electronic monthly draws in August, September, and November, and a drop box raffle draw in November.

The winners of the promo from the past two years came from different walks of life. Last year’s winners include Michael Sulit of Caloocan City, a SEAOIL user since buying his own car, is the youngest winner at 24 years old and the “bunso” in the family. He uses his free fuel for field work and trips with family and friends and shares it with his siblings who have families of their own.
Ernie Linarez is a TNVS operator and driver from Rizal. His monthly fuel savings help pay for his car loan. He is a SEAOIL Believer for years, and his trust and support for the brand paid off when he was drawn as last year’s first winner.
Joel Dinque, an entrepreneur from North Cotabato is able to provide more for his family, thanks to his fuel savings. As an owner of an auto repair shop, he endorses SEAOIL to his customers because he is a firm believer of their products.
Jidy Detuya, a jeepney driver from Agusan del Norte, shares that it was one of his kids who convinced him to gas up at SEAOIL and try his luck at winning free gas. He was skeptical of SEAOIL’s fuels at first but now he endorses it to his relatives and fellow churchgoers.

The  media were so happy most especially when Congressman Haresco said, "next time mag reunion naman tayo sa Boracay".  I am so looking forward to his promise because the last time I went in Boracay was 2001.

How To Plant Kangkong

In the Philippines Kangkong is one of the most popular vegetables not only because  it the cheapest,  also because there are so many ways to cook with Kangkong. For our lunch today I cooked Sinigang na Isda (Boiled Fish in Sour Soup).

I don't buy Kangkong anymore because of my unlimited supply from planting on my recyclable plastic container.

Here's How To Plant Kangkong using its scrap.

Fun Way of Exercising at Home

Although I'm enrolled in Fitness First, I don't go there everyday mainly because I am a mother and wife with so many things to do at home because we do not have a helper. To make sure I still get my cardio workout, I incorporate exercise with cleaning. Sharing my fun way of exercising at home  for all the busy moms out there.

The Way I Walk

Mrs PTA Pageant have been running for 3 years now but my kids' school  have not joined since the beginning. I was tapped to join for 3 consecutive years but I'd respectfully decline because this isn't my thing.

I am not comfortable joining contests like this for three reasons. First, I lack the height. Second, I don't like to wear swimsuit. Third and certainly the most important one, the way I walk. I don't walk gracefully. I walk like a cave man๐Ÿ˜ I have always been laughed by the way I walk. A friend even told me once, "maganda ka sana pero ang pangit mong mag lakad".

I'm not ashamed of how I walk. This walk have allowed me to do a lot of things, andbrought me to many places. I an.proud of this walk, it's just that my walk is not a pageant material. 

Then why am I joining this year? Our chosen representative quit for an important event so she can focus her time and strength for the rigorous training she needed.  When I read Ma'am Beth's, our GPTA President, plea for a candidate, I felt I needed to step up to save our beloved school since this is the very first time we're joining Mrs PTA.

Whatever the outcome of my walk, I'm joyfully doing this to give back to the school that is providing the best kind of education to my three children.

It was fun meeting the other mom candidates. Thanks to Coach Chris Aquino for building our confidence. Thanks to Ma'am Beth and Ma'am Egen for the support for the second kalakal canvassing. And here's our practice earlier.

Core Exercise

Big tummy has always been my problem because I like eating salty food and hate drinking water. Bad combination right! I know. So lately I've been trying to cut on chips that's oozing with salt, been drinking lots of water and doing core exercises.

Thanks Coach Derik for pushing me hard. Hopefully I'd have better ab by next moth for my 46th birthday.

Disclaimer, you can do this at home, just be careful when handling the weights/dumbbell. If you do not have a dumbbell at home, you may opt to use  2 liters plastic bottle filled with water.

Pier's Dried Fish

Have you heard about Pier's Dried Fish? I bet you haven't. I only knew about Pier's Dried Fish last week when mommy-blogger friend, Mommy Pier of The Soapbox Filipina blog, posted her business in Facebook.

Mommy Pier's husband and his family have been with the dried fish trade since way back. The dried fish they supply  have always been first class quality. But only few people know of this dried fish, since it is sold by bulk.

Mommy Pier hoped for these first class dried fish to reach the homes of mommies like me so she decided to put up Pier's Dried Fish this high quality  dried fish that sells in small packages good for household consumption.

All of the fond memories I had with my late Mama came back because of Mommy Pier's post.  Growing up as a child, I had many happy memories with my Mama specially when it comes to food. Mama loved cooking and she cooked well. One thing that reminds me so well about my mother is that she liked dried fish a lot! Our breakfast before would consist of fried rice, fried eggs, veggies and fried dried fish.

For the Philippine Independence Day, I cooked Champorado with Tuyo on the side for breakfast and  Ginisang Repolyo with dried labahita for lunch.

To order, you may contact Mommy Pier at 0917 - 8822375 or drop her a hook, line and sinker at

Slumber Party

A slumber party is a party, typically for preteen or teenage girls, in which all the guests spend the night at the house where the party is held. I never experienced a slumber party when I was a kid basically because my parents were strict. 

Now at 45, I got to enjoy this kind of party when Jen came to the Philippines for a vacation. We stayed at Sofitel, with Christella, Gigi, Marilyn and Ate Gemma.

We've stayed up til the wee hours reminiscing our high school days - both happy and awkward experiences. The funniest part was when Theela blurted, "O ikaw Marlyn, kasama ka pa din sa silent majority" just because Lyn didn't say anything the whole time๐Ÿ˜.

Boxing Session with Coach Arnel Antipuesto at Cafe Lupe

I get heavier, bigger, fatter every time we travel because all I do is eat, blog, eat, vlog, eat, sleep a little, eat, repeat.  This time for my Health and Fitness 2019 Goals, I'm including a visit to the hotel's gym to do at least an hour of workout.

Starting it with a Boxing Session with Coach Arnel Antipuesto at Cafe Lupe. This is my first time to join a boxing gym although I like this sport ever since I was 6 years old. I remember doing a match with my neighbor Neneng who is older than me. I played boxing with her probably until 10 years old when my baby breast were starting to grow.

In just three days under Coach Arnel, I learned the basic punches, leg moves and core exercise to help flatten my tummy. Thanks Coach Arnel and Hannah for assisting me!

If you're staying at OneA Hotel or dining at Cafe Lupe and Kampai, visit Coach Arnel at Elorde Boxing Gym, locted below the Cafe Lupe Restaurant.

Top Benefits of Boxing:

Enhanced Cardiovascular Health

Rambler Garden Hotel Review

I'm already quite familiar with TST, Mongkok, Nathan, mostly the city in Hong Kong.  I was adamant when my friend Malou suggested that John and stay at Rambler Garden Hotel in  Tsing Yi area because I do not know the place and what tourist attractions are near.

Good thing I heeded Malou's suggestion because I really like the location of Rambler Garden Hotel. Rambler is a stylish hotel located a 5-minute drive from Kwai Fong MTR. Featuring rooms with views of Rambler Channel, it offers free Wi-Fi and a large sky garden, it is a 20-minute journey from Hong Kong Disneyland by the MTR and just a 30-minute drive from Hong Kong International Airport via the Airport Express.

Tsing Yi area is a great choice for travellers interested in Disneyland, Po Lin Monastery, Tian Tan Buddha (Big Buddha) and Tai 0 Fishing Village.

I like almost everything about Rambler Garden Hotel - affordable rate, the view, the room is bigger than most hotels in the city, WIFI is fast and efficient. I also like that Malou live nearby. I just didn't like the rudeness of the Male Front Desk/Receptionist. He was not helpful at all. Maybe because of language barrier or he's just plain and simple rude!

Do I recommend Rambler Garden Hotel? Yes, if you plan to explore Lantau Island (Disneyland, Po Lin Monastery, Tian Tan Buddha (Big Buddha) and Tai 0 Fishing Village)

DIY Macau 3 Day 2 Night Itinerary

John and I have been to Hong Kong several times but never made a short trip to nearby Macau. For our recent trip we've decided DIY Macau,3 Day 2 Night Itinerary, since it is so close to Hong Kong.

If you're considering to visit Macau soon you might want to read our DIY Macau trip. You’ll also find our travel expenses just to give you tip on how much to spend.

Macau was just a translation by the Portuguese. When the Portuguese landed on the shore near A-ma Temple over 400 years ago, they asked the locals what the name of the land was. To which they replied “A-ma-gao,”. It means Bay of A-ma, named after the goddess revered at the nearby temple.

Today, Macau is formally known as Macao Special Administrative Region of the People’s Republic of China.  It is an autonomous territory, so even though it is officially part of China, it has its own currency and immigration policy, separate from that of mainland China or Hong Kong. In fact, even visitors from the mainland and HK will have to pass through immigration and customs check upon entering Macau.  Cantonese and Portuguese are the official languages. Currency: Macanese pataca (MOP). MOP 100 is around USD 1.3, EUR 10, PHP 645, SGD 16.2 (as of April 2018). Hong Kong dollar (HKD) is often accepted at 1:1 rate. Most establishments prefer cash payment, but they also accept credit card transactions. Electricity Info: 220V, 50Hz. Types D, M, G, and F are used. Macau is a very walkable city, and most interesting sites are within walking distance of each other. 

Macau is composed of four districts:

1. Macau peninsula, where the historical core of Macau is located. Most of the tourist spots are here. It’s also the most populated district.
2. Taipa Island. Although the airport is here, it is mostly a residential island.
3. Coloane Island. The least developed of the four areas. For tourists, places of interest here include hiking trails, old temples, and a couple of beaches.
4. Cotai Strip. The reclaimed land between Taipa and Coloane, occupied mostly by hotels and gaming buildings.

The best time to visit Macau is October to December for fine weather, comfortable temperatures, and no threats of typhoons. January and February are generally dry, too! But it can get chillier. April is when the level of rainfall starts to rise, peaking in June and slowly subsiding in September. If you are on a budget, avoid November, because that’s when the Macau Grand Prix happens, and that means rates of hotels goes higher.

Filipinos can temporarily stay in Macau without a visa for 30 days. For other countries, Hong Kong (1 year), Indonesia (30 days), Malaysia (30 days), Thailand (30 days), Singapore (30 days), United Kingdom (6 months), United States (30 days), European Union states (90 days).

I originally planned to ride a ferry going to Macau but I watched somewhere the  beautiful sea bridge
so we went the bus way. Here’s how:

Take the MTR to Sunny Bay Station.
Board B5 Bus to HZMB in Lantau Island. Fare: HK$ 5.8.
Go through Immigration and Customs inspection.

Ride shuttle bus to Macau. The ticket office is within the restricted area, after the Immigration. Fare: HK$ 65 (regular times), HK$70 (midnight to 5-59am).

Places We Visited
The Historic Center of Macau, the most popular attractions. This includes the Ruins of St. Paul’s, the Senado Square, and A-ma Temple. The Venetian: Gondola Ride, The Parisian Macao: Eiffel Tower,
Studio City: Golden Reel Ferris Wheel, Macau Museum.

Where We Stayed in Macau
Macau is best known for its 5-star hotels but it also has cheaper forms of accommodations. These options are concentrated in the Macau peninsula, around the city center. We stayed at Ole London, a budget hotel.

By Free Hotel Shuttles. You can board any of the free shuttles provided by hotels to get to the city center. You don’t need to have a reservation at that hotel to be let in. Even if you have no plan on staying there, you can get on. Just pick the hotel closest to your destination. For example, here are the bus schedules for the Venetian, Wynn Hotel, and City of Dreams.

By Free Airport Shuttle. The airport has its own free shuttle service. At the Arrival Hall, find the north exit and travel on foot to the parking lot, where you’ll find the buses. There’s a bus every 15-20 minutes. Available from 11am-9pm.

Can´t Get Enough of Your Love Babe - Barry White Guesting at The Simpsons

I won a bottle of an expensive liquor, courtesy of Mr. Prem Singh, at the recently concluded Kampai Sushi Bar Grand Opening just by naming the singer of the song Can´t Get Enough of Your Love Babe.

The story goes like this...Prem came over to my table seeing that I was enjoying this music, he said, "if you can guess the singer of this song you'll get a bottle of this".

The competitive spirit in me awakened. Ti tell you honestly, I'm bad at memorizing song titles and singers so I just told Prem, "the singer had thick beard and mustache". Then I quickly recalled memories of binge watching The Simpsons, then I remembered where Barry White was a guest named as Larry White.

Nagbunga din ang walang sawa kong panonood ng Simpsons!๐Ÿ˜€

Yoga Challenge

Yearly, every January to be exact, I'd enroll in a gym or any fitness clubs to strengthen my body and lose those bulges I've been keeping for many years. I have to admit I am lazy when it comes to exercise so I'll can only keep up in the gym up to a week. As a result, I gained 10 lbs! 

At 45, I can now feel the negative effects of not exercising. This 2019, I did not enroll last January in fitness clubs but I did join Fitness First this May, all because my youngest son Juan helped Fitness First Sales Consultant Brian convinced me to. I felt challenged and now of my third week. Not anymore lazy but still struggling to manage my time to be able to be there for my Yoga Challenge. Though Yoga is the main reason why I enrolled in the first place, I've been doing cardio (by machine) exercises for 30 minutes and hoping to increase it as the days go.

There are many branches of yoga. I can't remember it all but this is the only exercise I'm mostly happy because it helps me achieve a sense of focus in various ways for it is relaxing and meditative.

More than 90 percent of people come to yoga for flexibility, stress relief, health, and physical fitness. But, for most people, their primary reason for doing yoga will change. My truth, since I was young I wanted to be a yoga teacher but because I have not been consistent attending classes I'm back to square 1. 

I like yoga  because it benefits both my mind and body. It tones my core, which is my biggest problem. improves my focus and makes me feel more confident about myself.

Paolo of Chatime

Super dami ng milktea shops over the years but I remain loyal to Chatime not because I'm sponsored. They don't even know me, have not been invited in any of their events before. I just like their blend. Not too complicated, not too sweet, just the right mount of creaminess and sweetness.

This post is actually not about Chatime but one of their employees, Paolo. I super like Paolo because he is so cool as a cashier even under pressure. He is assigned in Megamall Branch, where it's always a blocksbuster type when it comes to customers buying a cup or two of Chatime Milktea.

Kuddos to Paolo who's always very nice and respectful, serving clients with a cute-shy smile!

Bean Box with Vicky

I saw Vicky's post in FB wearing a Hanbok and I thought she was in Korea. She told me the photos were taken at Bean Box and asked me to visit it. Actually many of my friends have invited me to visit Bean Box in the past when it opened a few years ago but I was too busy. Now that it's summer both Vicky and I have free time so we decided to have our post Mother's Day celebration in this place.

We only had Clubhouse Sandwich and an aloe vera drink, which we had to go since we both had lunch earlier at separately.

The place is kawaii, very cute and instagrammable. Hanbok is free to wear but they require diners to order first and pay. One order per person is a MUST. You will all be asked to provide a valid identification card.

For those persons with difficulty walking, you might find it hard to reach the place since they are located on the fourth floor. No escalators nor elevators available within the building.

I can't say anything about the food since the sandwich was already soggy when it reached home. Maybe on our next visit, I will do a review on the menu and pricing.

Special thanks to Josh for helping us with photos and vids. Meantime, please do enjoy Vicky and my kalokohan for this video. We are moms just havin' fun. Ang mahal ng rent ng Hanbok sa Korea, at least at Bean Box free, bibili ka lang nga muna ng food nila๐Ÿ˜€

Simone Rota, a football star and humanitarian, he played for the Azkals and is now with Kaya. was not able to make it to the event because he has a game in Singapore. 

I came for this press launch for the second icon, whom I know personally to be a very friendly and pretty lady. She is Mela Sison Laxamana, Group Marketing Manager for Raintree Restaurants and Raintree Hospitality Group, currently handles 12 restaurants, five food parks, one hotel, and one household. This girl boss and icon for all is also known as a shoe-loving, cookie-eating lipstick junkie superstar. How does she manage to stay organized and productive? Mela shares, “With the help of my BlackBerry KEY2 LE, I’m able to get the job done.” She shares, “I specifically like the QWERTY feature because this makes me feel like I’m responding to my emails like I’m working on my laptop, and I get to respond in real time. This makes my work easier even when I’m out of the office.” Mela adds, “With my BlackBerry KEY2 LE, better workdays are at my fingertips!”

Both Mela and Simone agree that there are social phones for play and there’s the BlackBerry KEY2 LE—a productive work phone and indispensable tool of the trade to help you get things done efficiently. Indeed, the BlackBerry KEY2 LE is raising the bar to help you do more, different. Touch it. Feel it. Experience the rebirth of an icon Black is back with the launch of BlackBerry KEY2 and KEY2 LE.

Iconic design, reimagined Sleek and super modern, the KEY2 and KEY2 LE feature a diamond pattern, non-slip textured back, a 4.5- inch impact-resistant gorilla glass display, durable aluminum alloy frame, and the most intelligent BlackBerry keyboard ever. Redesigned with 20% larger keys and perfectly sculpted for more comfortable typing with the all-new speed key with 52 custom shortcuts, speeding you into action. Instead of just launching the clock, you can go straight to timer; instead of just opening your text messaging app you can go directly to composing a text message. The QWERTY keyboard is all about tactility and accuracy, not to mention that there’s just something uniquely satisfying when your fingertips glide over and hit those keys—unlike a glass keyboard which is prone to typographical errors, not to mention how difficult it is if not impossible to type without looking.

This fingerprint sensor is found right on the space bar, which is a smart way of maximizing space. With such advanced security and privacy features, and regular updates that protect it from the latest threats, no wonder the new BlackBerry has been touted as the most secure phone for 2019 by gadgethacks.com.
