Nescafe Cappuccino is the most indulgent coffee I’ve ever had!

Wed, 12 Nov 2014 03:05:41 PST

(image)

I’m a coffee addict. For me, coffee is so much more than just a morning drink. It fixes my moods for the rest of the day. It keeps me rejuvenated, attentive, and upbeat. As an average coffee drinker, I have about 3 good cups a day so imagine me spending so much for a cup in the morning, in afternoon, in the late afternoon, and in the evening.

So what is it with coffee that keeps me coming back for it? It might be the caffeine that makes me alert all day, or is it the smooth, creamy flavor, and rich milky froth like the Nescafe Cappuccino.


Nescafe Cappuccino has a strong espresso taste with a bit of sweetness just like the authentic indulgent Italian coffee. It the soluble version of cappuccino that’s convenient, frothy and perfect when you want an indulgent treat in an instant! It is topped with chocolate shavings that add to its dessert-like appeal and see how the coffee foam and choco sprinkes in NESCAFÉ Cappuccino make it a more indulgent experience. 



20 Ways You Can Be The Best Friend Ever

Mon, 19 May 2014 18:43:45 PDT


To be able to find your best friend ever, you need to become one first.  Do you want to be The Best Friend Ever but don’t know how? Here are some ways.

  1. Respect yourself. If you know how to respect yourself, you’ll know how to respect your friends.
  2. Be true to yourself. You’ll lose your friends when they found out that your fake.
  3. Keep your friends secrets, secret.
  4. Don’t say mean words when you fight with your best friend.
  5. Always be there. There will come a time that you will regret not spending time with your friend.
  6. Listen. Even if she’s talking nonsense.
  7. Tell her that she’s your best friend.
  8. Cry together. Laugh together. Even if it looks foolish,
  9. Invites her over your house.
  10. Give without expecting anything in return.
  11. Tell her the truth when needed. But don’t be harsh.
  12. Do not judge your friend. Remember the saying “tell me who your friends are and I’ll tell you who you are”.
  13. Forgive and forget mistakes.
  14. Watch movies together.
  15. Take care of her when she’s sick.
  16. Give her gifts. Even little things with small value matter.
  17. Stick with her. When she runs crying. Say “Resbak tayo!”
  18. Let her have other friends too. And be friends with your friend’s friend.
  19. Take “selfie” pictures together.
  20. And in the midnight of her birthday, call her. Because “A real friend calls”. No matter how far the distance is, in their heart, true friends never part. And with  “With GoUnli20, it’s now easy to call without a need for a prefix and it’s just P20 for unli calls, 15mb of mobile surfing, and 20 texts to all networks! Kaya if you need a friend, don’t call me, I’ll call you!”









“X-MEN: Days of Future Past”

Sat, 17 May 2014 22:05:23 PDT

What would you correct from your past to save the future?If there would be a real time machine, I would definitely use it to go back to some significant times in my life but not to correct my past. Of course most of us made bad choices and decisions at some points in our past but I think most of us also will agree with me when I say that we learned from our mistakes and that it’s what made us who we are today. Surely there are things in my past that I wished to correct to change my future, like not seeing my Mom too often not knowing she’d pass away too soon, not taking Accounting review classes so as to get an impressive College Transcript of Record and nail the highest paying job ever, not being kind to people, or having too much pride that asking forgiveness seems like the hardest thing to do. Anyways, since life has so much to offer and we’ll never know what’s there ahead, no matter how messed-up it would be, just go through it the best that we can, learn from mistakes of the past and hope to live long. And here’s the Good news, our beloved characters are back this time with the movie: X-Men: Days of Future Past. It deals with the future where mutants are being hunted so the Adult Kate Pryde sent her mind to her younger self to prevent a crucial event in mutant-human history!So my fellow X-Men fanatics here’s the trailer of the critically acclaimed X-Men: Days of Future Past  See you all in the movies! allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="347" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/NQE5f5IXQ5I" width="617">[...]



How does Globe GoUNLI30 give you the REAL UNLI chat experience?

Fri, 11 Oct 2013 19:43:13 PDT

My daughters are addicted to these Internet-based apps that allow us to call or send messages for free. They kept sending me animated emoticons once they caught me online. What I love best is I can check on them from time to time whenever I want to. Check if they’re done with their homework, or had taken their vitamins, or if the little ones are fighting, or if “yaya” had fed them. If we needed something that’s not available in our place, I just send pictures to my husband through Facebook Messenger and he’ll be able to buy them and bring them home in the weekend since his work had him away on weekdays. But these apps are only available if we are connected to a Wi-Fi or 3G internet connection. Most wifi zones are password protected unless you buy something from them or you pay for it.


With GoUNLI30, subscribers get unlimited texts to all networks, unlimited calls to Globe/TM, and unlimited chat with the best messaging apps like Viber, Kakao Talk, Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp, WeChat, Line and the telco’s very own messaging app GMessage without the need for Wi-Fi or additional data charges. Available for only P30 valid for 1 day, GoUNLI30 gives you no excuse to stay out of the loop and connect with more than 1 billion users around the world regardless of mobile network or location.

Go all-out unlimited with GoUNLI30 and UNLICHAT25 now. Register by dialing *143# and then choosing GoSAKTO on your Globe mobile phone or texting GOUNLI30 or UNLICHAT25 to 8888.

Kettle Korn: Poppin’ Fun All The Time!

Sun, 12 May 2013 22:36:40 PDT



(image)
 

Ever since Walking Dead Series came to television, it was a total hit.  And since I'm a movie addict, I've been wondering if there will be a movie version of this series. It must be exciting to watch. I imagine myself sitting in front of the wide movie screen with a bag of my favorite popcorn in on one hand and my hubby's hand on the other. So if ever I were to star in my own movie, I would be the female version of Rick Grimes the lead protagonist of the series!  It would start when a chimp attacks someone and immediately infects her, and she in turn infects other people. Then in the next scene, I will awake from a coma in a hospital alone, I will look around in abandoned buildings, then I will come to find a small group of Zombies! I will be able to escape them of course, and then later I will meet some survivors including my lost family. I will become the leader of the group fighting to survive a world where zombie apocalypse occurred. There will be a lot of running for our lives and I would be gunning down a lot of zombies of course! Wouldn’t it be so much fun to watch? Especially with a bag of Kettle Korn in your hand - Kettle Korn makes watching movies poppin’ fun all time! Imagine munching Kettle Korn while screaming your heart out!






Sun Cellular, The Good Choice in Postpaid

Mon, 22 Apr 2013 00:21:25 PDT

I’ve known Sun Cellular for almost eight years now. It was recommended to me by a friend because she knew I had to call my family every once in a while and I had low budget and I scared to those immense mobile phone bills. She even let me borrowed her PhP 350 line for unlimited calls and texts to other Sun numbers. I then bought a Sun prepaid sims for me and for my family members and there’s this PhP100 prepaid load that allowed me also to do unlimited call and texts. But I had to go to a loading center every week and that’s really time-consuming on my part. Now, other than the contending cellular phone lines and my Sun Cellular prepaid line,  I’ve been thinking of having my own Sun Cellular postpaid plan for me and my kids because I know that it’s a better service provider and it’s way cheaper. Here are my choices (Source):Plan 600You may choose from the following Profiles:Call & Text UnlimitedGet the following:Unlimited Calls & Texts*P250 Consumable** (except International/Domestic Operator-assisted calls)350 FREE SMS to other networksText Unlimited Get the following:Unlimited Texts*P450 Consumable** (except International/Domestic Operator-assisted calls)350 FREE SMS to other networksFully ConsumableGet the following:P600 Consumable** (except International/Domestic Operator-assisted calls)350 FREE SMS to ALL networks* Local Sun-to-Sun Calls and/or Texts only.** Consumable may be used for the following:Sun Cellular calls to other networks – including NDD & IDDSun - to - Sun MMSSMS2EmailPlan 999You may choose from the following Profiles:Text UnlimitedGet the following:Unlimited Mobile InternetUnlimited Texts to Sun4 Hours Calls to SunAnd you know what I plan I prefer? Sun Cellular Plan 999!  Why? Because it offers Unlimited Internet! My kids would love it. They’ll be able to get 3G signal wherever they go and that means Twitter and Facebook everywhere. I’ll get to save from the cost of texting to other service provider lines because I know they’ll just send Facebook messages to them. And the best of it, the plans go with the slimmest phones ever! Sun is really a good choice for me. [...]

I would maintain that thanks are the highest form of thought, and that gratitude is happiness doubled by wonder. – Gilbert Keith Chesterton

Happiness is:
  1. My Dad being out of danger after that freak vehicular accident.
  2. Miss Eliza, our resident relations officer, & Miss Malou, our Community Development coordinator for helping me look for a Neuro-Surgeon.
  3. My friends Mylene, Obet, and Ramon for the encouragements.
  4. UERM Doctors, Dr.  Rico Chavez, the neuro-surgeon & Dr. Chiombon, the anesthesiologist, for giving the best professional services and not charging us even a single centavo.
  5. Dr. Noel Chua, for introducing me to UERM Doctors.
  6. My relatives for financial help.
  7. My officemates for covering up my workloads
  8. Well-wishers, for reminding me to stay positive
  9. My savings, though gone now, for being there when I need it most.
  10. My partner Estanley, and my kids, for keeping me sane.

Voice Lessons: How early is early

My daughters Mikaela and Helenia were gifted with beautiful voices. Unlike kids their age, they favor American Idol, Glee, and Victorious over any other kiddie’s shows.  Right from the time they learned how to talk, they were able to sing while they’re playing and I’m proud to say that our house is constantly surrounded by music. When they were babies they easily learn to carry out a tune. At age 3, Helenia was able to sing Pangako by Regine Velasquez, at age 4, she was able to sing Won’t Go Home Without You by Maroon 5, and by age 6, she was able to sing all the songs listed in the Myx Charts, and when she turned 7, we gave her formal voice lessons.

However, according to her voice coach the ideal time for voice training is at age 10. This is the time when the child has a good control of air supply so as not to strain the vocal chords. Helenia was denied at first but as soon as Helenia began to sing, it was obvious that she had a good voice that was way beyond her years. And so she was accepted.

During her first lessons, she was given ear-training to help her stay in tune. She was also given breathing exercises, even facial stretching exercises. She was also taught the proper way to take care of her voice. Aside from having fun and not losing interest, the main goal for young kids who sing a lot is to prevent them from straining their voice. Whether she’ll be a singing star or not, it doesn’t matter. What matters is I am thankful that I was given talented daughter and hearing her sing is priceless even if she do it in the bathroom.

Taking It To A New Level

Sat, 09 Mar 2013 00:00:41 PST

Estanley wanted me to learn how to cook. He believed that I’m the one who doesn’t need much effort to make a dish tastes good. In fact, he believed that I’m a good cook. It’s just that I’m lazy doing the other duties like I hate going to the market, I hate washing a lot of dishes, pots, and pans, that I love eating out more. But Estanley just wouldn’t give up. In December 2011 he bought a Lagermania oven for me to learn how to bake. It’s been more than a year but I haven’t used it yet! Well, I still cook a lot of usual stuff like our favorite sinigang, kaldereta and karekare which I had perfected. But Estanley wanted more. He wanted me to cook fancy foods! The kinds that he saw on Master Chef! Haller kamusta naman ako? But thankfully, my daughters were there to inspire me to learn how to cook again. Last time I asked them out for dinner they refused and told me “mas masarap ka pa magluto dun”. So, I therefore conclude that it’s really time for me to take it to the next level. I’ll learn how to cook again. And it’s a sure less expensive way to bond with my kids that eating out, would you think so? And for my cooking stint no. 1, here it is.CarbonaraIngredients:250gms Fettuccini pasta, cooked1 tetra pack (250ml) all purpose cream1 small can mushrooms, slicedBacon, sliced3 tablespoons Olive oil1 Onion, sliced1 tablespoon crushed garlic1 cup Chicken brothSalt and pepper to tasteProcedure:1.       Heat olive oil in a pan, sauté garlic and onions.2.       Add bacon and cook until brown.3.       Add mushrooms and cook for 3 minutes.4.       Add chicken broth and all purpose cream; bring to boil under medium heat.5.       Add salt and pepper to taste, stir constantly for 30 seconds until creamy.6.       Blend through cooked pasta.Carbonara is best served with garlic bread and iced tea.

Live Your Style with adidas NEO

Fri, 08 Mar 2013 18:05:29 PST

Personality is how I express myself. It started when I came to know who I am and show it to the world.I am a mom. In fact I am a cool mom. When something exceptional catches my eye, I buy it. Anything pink and shiny and has ruffles attracts me. I wear clothes that I like even if it’s out of fashion already. I just match it with my favorite shoes and my mom’s watch and I’m ready to go.  I guess I passed it on to my kids. They wear what they like and love their style and choice of colors and they wear them with delight. Our family got matching clothes, when we go out we wear the same colors. And it’s fun! We never really care what others may think as long as we’re happy with how we look. We can be whoever we want to be. It’s not important how people judge us with how we look. What matter is we have confidence in ourselves and what we’re doing doesn’t hurt anyone.Embrace fun, spontaneity and the unexpected twists in fashion when the adidas NEO Label Spring 2013 collection hits stores in January to March.Living a carefree journey that lets teens make their own style, NEO will capture attention with unique and innovative fashion and design twists on Spring merchandise.

Sporty, street and lifestyle footwear silhouettes with strong colour and graphic links create the look.NEO footwear is available in SM and select Robinson’s Department Stores nationwide.[...]

Nokia Lumia Now at Abenson.

Thu, 21 Feb 2013 21:33:27 PST


I bought my very first LCD TV at Abenson in Robinson’s Place Imus. It’s a 21-inch TLC TV that cost me 10,000 pesos. The price was the cheapest considering the 1 year repairs warranty. One thing I noticed about Abenson was the staff. They’re so accommodation and always smiling. It wasn’t my first time at Abenson. I’ve been there for a couple of times before and though I didn’t buy anything in my first two visits I never got the intimidating stares from the staff. One more thing, you can buy the appliance you really want in installment basis for as low as PhP 500/month with zero interest using your credit card. 

And you know what; I’ll be at Abenson again this weekend to see the one of the best smart phones ever made-The new Nokia Lumia 920! It comes with full versions of Microsoft Office, Outlook, and Internet Explorer 10. It also has the advance Pureview camera technology and the New PureMotion HD Plus display with a 1280 x 768 resolution! Wow! I can capture pictures anytime I want without using flash! It is also set off by Image Stabilization (OIS) that prevents pictures from distorting when capturing moving objects So everyone, let’s go to the nearest Abenson and grab the Nokia Lumia 920 now!

FReSH Fragrance Bar: Perfume Store For Perfume Addicts

Mon, 14 Jan 2013 19:15:08 PST


Having a “signature” scent is a very personal matter and depends on particular preferences.  The one that is appealing to you may be far off to another person. Considering the number of perfumes and fragrances nowadays, I’m still in the search of the best perfume that suits my personality and style. It should characterize me and would reveal the image that I want to express. Sometimes I go through all the testers that are available in the stores that I end up confused which one I would buy because I tried them all at once and my nose got messed up with the scents.

There was also a time when a friend of mine bought a new perfume and it smelled good on her. Thinking that it would do the same for me, I bought the perfume but too bad it just made me a copy cat.

Another factor that’s holding me back to buying my perfect scent is the cost. I’m not that enormously wealthy and I need to consider the cost of the perfume. I know that it’s magnificent and stunning but I really can’t afford to wear it day by day.

Good thing there’s FReSH Fragrance Bar. It is an authorized retailer that has a vast collection of the finest imported scents. And as the saying “Choosing your scent shouldn’t be rushed,” goes, finding the right scent takes time. Their fragrance consultants will help you find your perfect scent without pushing you to buy.

So for Perfume Addicts out here try to visit FReSH, the “Perfume Store for Perfume Addicts”. It currently has 5 retail stores in Eastwood Mall, Alabang Town Center, Lucky Chinatown Mall, Marquee Mall Pampanga, and Abreeza Mall Davao. You can also visit their Facebook page @ www.facebook.com/freshfragrancebar. See you there!

New eyeglasses for me

Sat, 12 Nov 2011 01:33:16 PST

When I was in high school I had astigmatism. I needed to wear prescription glasses to correct it. For a year I looked like a nerd in school because my eyeglasses were too big and too old-fashion. I just stopped wearing it when I unintentionally broke it and my parents had no budget for a replacement. And that was the last time that I wore eyeglasses. Until last week I went to my ophthalmologist for an eye check-up. I don’t know if it’s the lightings or there’s really something wrong with my eyes because I can’t barely read my daughter’s medical prescriptions. I had a feeling that my eyes are getting weaker as I get older. My ophthalmologist told me that I need to wear prescription glasses again. I just asked for my measurements because my aunt told me that she’ll be giving me her old eyeglasses and I can use the frame and just change the lenses. When I saw the old eyeglasses, I was shocked, it’s so old-fashion again! There’s no way I will use it! I’d rather buy a new one. But the problem is my ophthalmologist is charging me a lot for a brand new frame and where on earth I’m getting that money.Good thing I’ve been shopping thru internet for quite a while now. I’ve been buying stuff like clothes, shoes, coupons, and even gadgets. I read about this Zenni optical and gave their site a visit and I found out that it’s where we can find the most fashionable and attractive glasses. You can even find $6.95 prescription eyeglasses and still look fab. Ordering is so easy. You just need to give your measurements and choose your frame, wait for a week, and your eyeglasses will be delivered at your doorsteps. Their wide varieties of frames come in different styles, colors and shapes. And they come with free anti-scratch coating, full UV protection, microfiber cleansing cloth, and protective case. Here are the styles that I’m checking-out:Aren’t they so cute? Zenni optical uses high quality materials from stainless steel to titanium making them so durable. I’ve been thinking of getting two pairs. I’m pretty sure that these will butter up my wardrobe. Shipping is only $4.95 regardless of how many you get and since I live outside US, shipping will only cost me $9.95. Not bad at all. If you already bought a pair from Zenni, why not  Share your Zenni story too. [...]

Urban Clothing

Sun, 30 Oct 2011 20:48:07 PDT

When I heard the online brand name Matix Clothing, I search for it and found out that it has become a source of the basic surf style clothing. From board shorts to jeans, t-shirts, beanies, belts, and wallets, Matix has been steadily bringing us the newest and hottest styles of outfits. Matix Clothing was founded by pro skateboarders Daewon Song and Tim Gavin and later on it has expanded and aside from providing fashionable wear, it brings us the lowest prices on the web for sporting goods, sunglasses and much more – shipping is free for items over $25!One of the most popular styles of clothing nowadays is the urban style. I love the urban style because it depends on how you preferred to look. A simple shirt paired with welder pants and accessorized with a beanie and you’re all set. And as Christmas is past approaching, I’ve been taking into account Matix clothes and planning to shop for a black scrimmage tank for my dad. I don’t know, but my old dad had developed a fad for urban clothing. A second childhood maybe?  lol.[...]

Giving thanks means letting the world know you don’t entertain negativity in your life and you are more positive of showing your gratitude of what life offers to you. If you think of negative thoughts, you will just continue bringing negative thoughts to your life. But if you start finding ways on how to be thankful, you will see a world of possibilities..When I started this practice of finding ways to be thankful, the more blessings came pouring in. More reasons to be thankful started showing up and I began to enjoy life more.

Uh-oh...My daughter Helenia's 7th Birthday was celebrated with a blessing. It rained hard. But believe me, I never saw any disappointment coming from my Helenia. She's still as funny and lively as ever. She's very cooperative, she entertained guests and always posing for a camera shot. And the happiest person was me. I'm so proud. Proud that I know I raised a good kid. I'm confident that she'll go places.With her cake. The cupcakes were ready made bought in packs while the cupcake stand was made by yours truly :)Caught her licking one of the cupcakes!and eating the one she licked.My FamilyWith cousin during wacky shot.

Birthday Cake

Taken on the morning of my youngest daughter Helenia's 5th Birthday. We were on a tight budget then and can't afford to give a party for her. We told  Helenia about it ahead of time and she understood the situation. She didn't even feel bad about the thought that we won't be celebrating her birthday. But God is good. Goldilocks invited me to their anniversary and gave me this cake. Actually it was just a bare mocha care and I just put the decorations and the candle. My Helenia was so happy when she woke up and found this cake beside her bed.
