Thank GOD It's December - A Story of a Blessed Woman

December has always been so special for me and hubby. We both celebrate our birth dates, every 4th and 13th, his and mine respectively. We commemorate our anniversary every 14th and on the 16th, our wedding anniversary. Being together for 12 years as happy lovers and getting married for eight years are more than a million ways of thanking God and praising His name.

With God’s grace, we are able to sustain and survive life’s trials and tests of faith but as we always say, these tough times were outgrown by the billions of blessings that we receive each day. Miracles are felt and witnessed every time we wake  up and see how beautiful life is, seeing Eieo next to us, happy, witty and healthy.

Many people say that we are perfectly blessed as we have always become a blessing and inspiration to many lives. But you know, though I feel that I really couldn’t ask for more, hubby and I would always love to hope and pray that EIEA will be handed and given to us soon, very, very soon.

Yes, all we want now is a lovely, smart and healthy daughter

As I end today’s post, I would like to thank my husband and lifetime partner, Ren, for his unconditional love and support, our marriage is so wonderful that would make me fall in love with you over and over again... 

Eieo, for his love and for making us feel God’s blessings every day and of course, for having us experience the perks of parenthood; for our families and friends, for making us feel loved and special each day. 

The power of my three F’s: Faith, Family and Friends, has always been an inspiration… thank you very much. All these things I owe to you and all.

Happy holidays, everyone. May the yuletide spirit bring us the gifts of love, joy, peace and prosperity. 

Season’s greetings from our family to yours… God bless us all.

Thanks be to God Almighty.

Forever blessed,

Mommy Mai

Lutong Pinoy (Recipes) FB Group : A Great Virtual Place for Foodies

Lutong Pinoy (Recipes) : My New Addiction on Social Network

This group, LP, has inspired many moms, housewives and career women alike, to cook and bake for their families and loved ones. News feed is jam-packed with good vibes, shared recipes, and helpful/useful tips to make each

It felt so humbling and overwhelming to see many women from different walks of life, united to be one, working towards one goal – to prepare something delicious and enticing for their families, and most of all, stepping out of their comfort zones and starting a business that would make them feel their self-worth as a mom and as an entrepreneur even in their own little ways. 

To this group, I believe that everyone has found in many ways to appreciate life and live such to the fullest.

Truly, LP has touched many lives including mine, making me get so hooked and addicted to this group. This LP craze has changed my daily routines on social networks.

Thanks to my sister April for letting me know of this group, to the admins and members for sharing goodness and love through their simple culinary masterpieces.

Muli, maraming salamat mga Ka-LP. 

Mabuhay tayong lahat! Cheers!

God speed.

Eieo's First Field Trip with JVCMSI Family

Happiness is a choice, a gift from God that we shall all savor and be thankful for. And seeing our unico hijo feel so happy makes the rewards of parenthood more special. 

He always finds ways to enjoy his schooling and academic experiences with his friends, classmates, schoolmates and mentors.

Since I have already blogged about how hubby and I are both feeling blessed to finally find a good school for our kiddo (read my blog HERE… JVCMSI, our newly found ‘gem’), I intend to write something about his new experiences this time.

One of our child’s academic milestones is to participate in educational tours. During his first grade at JVCMSI, hubby and I joined him on this fun-filled learning experience. 

Enjoying good times, doing playful actions, and feeling very excited and enthusiastic over each ride at Enchanted Kingdom, we know that this has been a priceless experience.

November 28, 2014 @ 6 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. 
JVCMSI Educational Tour Itinerary:
Intramuros, Manila and Fort Santiago
Luneta (Martyrdom of Dr Jose Rizal)
Blue Wave
Enchanted Kingdom

Field trips like this can always be fun and entertaining, such a great learning opportunity for everyone.

Activities like this give students educational experiences away from their regular school environment, a good way to break monotony and routines. Kids can look forward to and prepare for the trip for several days or weeks. Then, they get to spend the day in a different learning environment and can complete a lesson on the topic covered after the trip is over. Learning in different ways can appeal to varied learning styles, helping children to succeed whether they are visual, auditory or kinetic learners.

Students visiting different educational facilities learn in a more hands-on and interactive manner than they do in school. And when done 'right', field trips can be a powerful component of a well-rounded instructional program.

Just keep in mind that safety of everyone, especially the students, is strictly observed; itineraries are relevant and educational, most of all, objectives are met.

To sum it up, everybody had so much fun, a perfect time to bond with families, friends and all.

Sen. Miriam Santiago on 'Fifty Shades of Grey'

Interesting... 'Fifty Shades of Grey' has been a must-read to many reading enthusiasts like me... And seeing this news over the web interests me more. See how Miriam Defensor Santiago becomes interested in getting in the loop and asks the POV's and insights of the netizens.

Read more here...

Should Miriam read 'Fifty Shades of Grey'?
By Kim Arveen Patria | Yahoo Southeast Asia Newsroom 

Producers and distributors of the controversial book-turned-movie “Fifty Shades of Grey” are drumming up excitement in the Philippines, and the hype has piqued the interest of a prominent reader.

Senator Miriam Defensor Santiago, who is still on leave of absence after announcing that she is battling stage 4 lung cancer, turned to social media to ask whether she should read the book.

“Still unopened 50 Shades of Grey set in my library. Should I read these? What do you think?” the senator said on her official Facebook page, much to her followers’ amusement.

Her post came with a photo of the set of books authored by E.L. James, the first of which was published in 2011. The novels, which have erotic themes, received varying response from readers.

As for Santiago’s post, most of the commenters called the book “poorly written.” They were split, however, on whether the senator should read the book, citing varying reasons.

“Waste of time. But please do and tell us what you think,” Facebook user Sabrina Sanchez said in her comment. Danny Ching agreed, adding, “Move on to ridding the country of criminals. Pagaling kayo.”

“Set it on fire, bury the ash, have it blessed,’ Faith Engracia commented. Facebook user Norman Sison, for his part, said, “Read the Bible instead, Senator. Praying for you. God bless you.”

Other commenters were political. “Just read it and run for president in 2016,” Adrian Solis quipped. Ariel Nievera said, “Give it to Seksi, Pogi at Tanda so they have something to read in prison.”
Readers like Ronnie Gicana, however, urged the senator to find deeper meaning in the novels, saying it can be seen as a “psychological exercise about women used as an object of desire.”

“This is a very good subject of discussion on how far women can be used without the feeling of being abused bordering mania,” Ronnie Gicana said in a comment on the senator’s Facebook post.

Other readers also warned against dismissing any form of literature as “low.” “Reading is never a waste of time! Read it! Give us your intellectual review then…” Rizalina Rendon Ventic said.

“Fifty Shades of Grey” has been adapted into movies. Earlier this month, rumors swirled that the Movie and Television Review and Classification Board (MTRCB) has banned the film in the country.

MTRCB Chair Toto Villareal has however denied the reports, saying his agency has yet to review the film. “Neither has the MTRCB received any trailer material for review,” he told Yahoo Philippines.

We truly love Sen. Miriam Defensor Santiago

And oh by the way, hubby and I are excited to watch 'Fifty Shades of Grey' the Movie.  :-)

Want to save money on your gas expenses? Wish to battle against continual oil price hike? With today's costly fuel prices, you certainly need the best tools and fuel-saving apps available to help you save money at the pump!

Worry no more! Gasgas Pinas is here to help you out.   

Gasgas Pinas is the only fuel-saving app made by Filipinos for Filipinos. Developed as an initiative to provide the general driving public with such access to current fuel prices in gas stations in their vicinity, everyone can now enjoy the glee, ease and convenience on getting real-time price updates with real-time peso savings!

Worry-free and Budget-friendly Road Trip and Holiday Escape
Today, we can all travel as much as we want and be able to save tons of money on gas fuel. With just a few taps and touches on our phones, Gasgas Pinas' consumers can now easily locate the most inexpensive fuel price/s in the city and fill up on a budget. 

How Does It Work?
As you set your 'style' on the road, look ahead at the map and see fuel prices down the road as compared to current location. Since the price of gas is often extremely volatile, posted gas prices may vary as much as 20% within only a few blocks away from each other. 

Having that in mind, we all want to be aware of where exactly to gas up. Of course, it is only at the gas station/s that can give us the cheapest and most affordable deal.

This turn-by-turn gas navigation app with real-time price updates with real-time peso savings also gives its consumers other perks and treats.  

The features on this app include acquiring information about gas prices, introducing gas types available, locating gas stations within the vicinity of the user, and many others. Along with this, there are general announcements of news and useful tips related to the gas industry, and most of all, a point system where one can win prizes, road maps, fuel mileage, and a lot more.

Its Noble Mission 
The creative minds behind this innovation stands that it is their civic duty to do their part to help others in their own ways and means. Through this fuel-saving app, no one has to fill up at a specific station when a better price is just down the corner or just somewhere very near.

See, all these and more when you make Gasgas Pinas your most reliable travel buddy.

Have a safe and happy trip!  Enjoy each ride!

DJ Mo Twister and the Estrada's on Twitter War

I am not for Mo. And I haven't been a fan of his works, thoughts and even words. BUT not this time, I certainly go for you, DJ Mo Twister! Though he still uses harsh words and practices his 'big mouth' (as what netizens term/tag him), he probably uses it 'right' this time.

He is not perfect. He is very controversial. But his being so outspoken this time is applauded by many netizens. Perhaps, many of us have found DJ Mo our 'instant ally' in this 'nakakaumay-nakakasawa-paulit-ulit-paikot-ikot-at-tama-na' issue.

Let me know your insights!

Crime does not pay. Justice must be served. 

Filipino's hard-earned money must be wisely spent. 

Politics is DIRTY!   'Oh, tuwid na daan, nasaan ka ba?'

Long Live, Anti-Corruption Advocates!

Who won the Mo Twister vs Estradas Twitter debate? Read more details ...  HERE.

The Back Story --- Rappler.Com

MANILA, Philippines - It's been a week since alleged Instagram posts of Senator Jinggoy Estrada's son Joseph Luis Manuel "Jolo" showing his luxurious lifestyle caught the attention of netizens.

The senator is involved in the biggest corruption scandal that ever hit the Philippine Senate: the Pork Barrel Scam.

On Thursday, July 3, disc jockey Mo Twister asked his Twitter followers if the 21-year-old was on the microblogging site because he "was hoping to cyberbully him."

His tweet elicited replies not from Jolo, but from his siblings.

Julian Estrada, Jolo's younger brother, replied to the call-out asking the outspoken DJ to "be professional."

DJ Mo Twister, full name Mohan Gumatay, hit back at the young Star Magic actor triggering an explicit Twitter exchange.

Praying for the truth, hoping for the best!

We want 'genuine' JUSTICE!

Buy Optrimax Plum Delite to a Healthier and Better You

Optrimax Plum Delite  is a pickled plum with probiotics, green tea and pu-er tea mix (from Singapore) that is scientifically proven to aid in colon cleansing, detoxification and even in weight loss management. 

The whole plum, specially pickled with probiotics, Green Tea and Pu-er Tea powder, provides a good source of fiber and promotes regular healthy bowel movements, ensuring the easy removal of waste materials (harmful toxins) from our digestive system.

The Wonders of the PLUM: What Plum Delite can do?
1. Improves intestinal health with healthy probiotics;
2. Minimizes health and wellness problems with effective detoxification; and, 
3. Helps you achieve desirable weight with reduced fat absorption. 

Plums are handpicked when they are 70-80% ripe to assure that only the most succulent plums are chosen. 

These first-class plums are then meticulously pickled over 6 months in a premium concoction using special vats for that proprietary good taste.

Micro-punctures made in the skin prior to the pickling process to optimize the pickled taste and allow thorough permeation of the probiotics and tea mix for maximum effects thereafter.

Plums provide a zero-fat and low-calorie, good-tasting source of fiber.

Probiotics improve intestinal health and promote effective detoxification, minimizing beauty and health problems while helping you attain that slim silhouette and get back to your ideal or preferred weight.

Green Tea and Pu-er Tea mix reduces fat absorption, empowering you to achieve your desirable body weight at a faster pace.

Give a box a try for only Php 1200.00!
Each box has 10 packets (good for 10 days). 
Take one PLUM a day, feel light and see amazing results. 

No constipation. Say goodbye to that ‘bloated’ feeling even after you burp and all. You may also be surprised as to how you lose some pounds and begin to feel good about yourself. 

Its effects vary from one person to another. So, try the amazing plums today and begin that healthy lifestyle. 

What’s best? 
For you to see optimum results, you must go for the Optrimax Plum Delite’s 30-day program. Buy THREE boxes for only Php 3600.00 or be a member to avail discounts and rebates.

Sad to say, with so many health and diet fads nowadays, only very few are true to what they claim. Most of them are either artificial health products or worst fake slimming pills and tablets. 

Say ‘NO’ to these ‘false ads’ and go for the safe and effective ways to stay fit and healthy. Cleanse and detoxify the natural way without putting your optimum health at risks.  

With that, you can be assured that you need not to go against our body’s natural mechanisms and would never have to deprive yourself to enjoy life! 

Optrimax Plum Delite prides itself with these notable recognitions from reliable institutions and organizations.

Why did I become a distributor and reseller of Optrimax Plum Delite?

More than the potential of earning much from this great and innovative breakthrough on health and weigh loss, it is the desire of reaching out to others to help them cleanse and detoxify their system especially their colons.  Through this, we all get healthy and wealthy. 

To be a reseller or distributor, contact me today and let’s talk about health and business. Text or call me now!  

For inquiries and more info, call/text Miss My at 0915.871.8721 or 0943.336.8546.

Optrimax Plum Delite - Effective for PCOS, Hormonal Imbalance, Colon Detoxification and Weight Loss?

Months ago, I was doing my freelance work over the web when I came across this product, Optrimax Plum Delite. I got curious, and so I did some rigid research about it. 

Little did I know that I was beginning to like the product and would want to grab my own THREE boxes, good for a month program. Of course, I knew it from the start that it isn't really magic, it takes time to see the positive health effects.

Optrimax Plum Delite, Marilao - 0915-871-8721
Too good to be true
Believe it or not, I was so surprised to see my friends, former batch mates and colleagues who have been using Optrimax Plum Delite for months now. They really have lost pounds! 

Speechless, I suddenly felt so eager to try it too. I thought, if the 'change' happened in them, I believe it would also work for me. 

I talked to my other friends and acquaintances and asked their first-hand experiences and inputs on this miracle product intended for colon cleansing and detoxification. They generously shared their experiences and even the things they felt and encountered after taking this natural fruit. 

More than becoming fit or getting back into their shapes when we were all single, young and active as well as Optrimax Plum Delite's significant aid on weight management, they all would like to be healthy. Since we are not getting any younger, we must resort to natural ways of staying fit and healthy not just for ourselves but for our families and loved ones. 

The Good News
And yes, I fianlly gave it a try. I contacted my Elementary batch mate, Julie, who kept on sending me messages for me to give it a try. (She's being so makulit made me decide to buy my THREE boxes from her. Kakulitan works great wonders in sales, you know. Nope, I think she's just really persistent, wanting to also help me get preggy again.)

My experiences will be shared to you, my dear readers, in the next posts. I will surely update you with this. 

Buy and give it a try!  No harmful side effects, just the natural way of body cleansing and detoxification.

For more information and details, feel free to contact this number 0923-569-6739.

Thank you!

Cheers to a healthier you!
