Isang Harding Papel : a children's book on Martial Law

"My countrymen, as of the twenty-first of this month, I signed Proclamation № 1081 placing the entire Philippines under Martial Law...” — Ferdinand Marcos, September 21, 1972

How do you tell a story to your children about Martial Law in the Philippines? How do you tell them about what happened in the EDSA People Power Revolution?Ikwento natin sa kanila ang kasaysayan.

Most of us, parents wants to shelter our kids from the harsh realities of life. But a Filipino writer wants to give kids a taste of life's harsh truth through a children's book.

Isang Harding Papel written by Augie Rivera and illustrated by Romel Joson is a story set during the Martial Law through the eyes of Jenny, a young girl's experience of visiting her mother, a political detainee imprisoned for years after joining a protest rally.

The story also presents a childhood defined and redefined in difficult times and it also depicts how love and family triumph over darkness.


Kidzooona: an indoor garden to learn through play

Children learn through play, most importantly in play children learn how to learn -O. Fred Donaldson

I am a strong supporter that children is learning through play that is why I wanted to share our lovely experience at Kidzooona located at 5th Level, Waltermart Makati.

Kidzooona is operated by Aeon Fantasy Group, a Japan-based company. Kidzoona comes from the Japanese word Kizuna means the "bond" or "connection" between a parent and a child. 

The moment Luigi step in Kidzooona, he is very happy and excited! Who wouldn't be excited if you are surrounded with toys? Toys are tools that help children learn about themselves. As they play, they learn to get along with others and develop fine and gross motor skills.

This indoor playground is both educational and entertaining. It is big, neat, safe and fun-filled environment. It is divided into areas: The Toddler Area, Role Play Town, Ball Pool, Cyber Wheel, Toy Corner, Event Corner and the Parent and Guardian Lounge.

How To Achieve Piolo Pascual's "Amoy Artista" scent

What is "amoy artista" scent? It is used to describe a clean, fragrantly fresh scent all day. Do you have to wear expensive perfume? How about Papa P? What’s his secret to keeping that “amoy-artista” scent?

Piolo Pascual, one of the country's favorite heartthrob  reveals his secret to smelling good in an intimate fan meet last July 4, 2017 at Century City Mall, Makati City.

The Fourth of July is a blast for Papa P's fans because it is their Grand Fan's Day. He not only treated fans to a heart-warming performance and fun games but also revealed how he manages to achieve “amoy-artista.” The secret: it’s not a new perfume; it’s a new detergent!   

In a Q & A with fans, he shared “Kahit pinagpapawisan ako sa taping o naarawan kami maghapon sa shoot at on-site schedules, mabango pa rin ang damit ko!” 
What made the fans "kilig more" is that Papa P lets the fans smell him or #smellfie. (May pauso si Papa P!) to let the fans smell the scent of the Tide Perfume…

Whenever you get your picture taken during "selfies" or "groufies" and you smile, do you open your mouth and show your teeth? When you see the picture above, (our photo)  you see a happy mom and son looking back at you. We are a happy person sending positive vibes to everyone! We love to smile and I am proud to say that we have healthy teeth. 

Here's the 5 Tips on HOW to make brushing more fun with your kids

How this brave dog save a life by donating his blood

Hi everyone! Meet Gomer, the brave dog who just donated his blood to save a life of another dog. 
Just like people, dogs sometimes need a blood transfusion and rely on donors to help. 
When my sister Japs, read a post on Facebook that a pet owner is looking for a blood donor because a 9 year old shih tzu needs to undergo blood transfusion due to ehrlichiosis, (definition: Ehrlichiosis is a bacterial illness transmitted by ticks that causes flu-like symptoms),  her heart was touched in the post so she immediately contacted the pet owner if her dog can be a blood donor and they agreed on the terms. 

Just to give you a short background, Japs and Francois #TeamAzur has 3 healthy, active and smart dogs. They are not pure bred, they are AsPins (Asong Pinoy) but still, these dogs are loved. These dogs gives emotional benefit as that of a human friendship. 

Just like other dogs, Gomer is also naughty. One time he chewed Japs' grading sheets! Oh my!

Going back, how do dogs donate blood? What is…
