Playing Outdoors

Written on August 3rd, 2012 by sassymomno shouts

In this day and age, when our children are addicted to console games, glued to the boob tube and just busy tinkering with their tablets. It’s refreshing to know that there are development intended to promote outdoor play like the Terra 28th Park at Bonifacio Global City.

I have seen the place, and planted a smile on my face when I saw a spot where kids can play Patintero, “Piko” or hopscotch and Luksong baka. There is a play areas with colorful swings and slides. It is mostly for kids but it is also a runner’s haven, you can jog around with rubberized jogging paths. There is also a picnic ground and an ample open space to play. I wonder if we can play Frisbee there, that would be great especially when you have your personalized frisbees in tow.

What’s good about this is that right across that street will rise High Street South Block– the newest residential development of Alveo Land. We are now selling the second tower — Two Maridien. When you invest in that High Street South, you will be assured that your children will not be cramped up in your unit but you have a nice park right across the street where they can enjoy the outdoors. Isn’t that great?

I would love for you to see our showroom for better appreciation, call or text me at 0917-8523843 (Salen Trillanes).



My Mom is a Fro-Yo Addict

Written on May 19th, 2010 by sassymomno shouts

A couple of months back, I introduced frozen yogurt to my mom. At first, she was quite apprehensive with the taste having known that yogurts taste sour but she has come to love this healthy dessert. Every time we go to the mall, she’ll treat the kids to a cup of fro-yo.

I just love this delicious snack. Not only does it satisfy my craving for sweets, it also has great health benefits. It’s an excellent source of calcium, protein and other vitamins such as B12. Fro-Yo AddictsFrozen yogurt is the answer to my calcium needs, especially since I am not a big fan of milk. One serving of yogurt a day helps reduce the risk of osteoporosis.

Yogurt also contains live micro-organisms which is good for our immune system. These bacteria aid in digestion and prevent infections. And for people who are forever watching their weight, there is a low fat and skim yogurt.

Maybe if I stick with this yummy dessert, I won’t have to wear corsets every time I need to be dressed in cocktail dresses and gowns.

Rustan’s Shangri-la Fire Sale

Written on May 18th, 2010 by sassymomno shouts

Rustans Fire SaleLate April fire struck the basement of Rustan’s Shangri-la in Mandaluyong and according to reports, the fire started at the storage room of Rustan’s Supermarket. Although the fire was immediately controlled, the smoke continued to spread all over the building prompting shoppers and moviegoers to evacuate. This incident also left merchandise of Rustan’s Department Store slightly damaged by smoke thus resulting to the Rustan’s Fire Sale. The sale started May 5 which extended up to May 16.

Shoppers rapidly flocked the store knowing that most of the items were up to 70% off. I have seen the long lines and I have the sale items and if you’re a shopaholic, you’d surely go home with a lot of loot.

These kinds of sale are an excellent way to find bargain finds for your own use or for gift giving, if you have enough excess money to spend. You will surely find an item that can be considered a best buy.

Bonding with Blogger Friends

Mom Bloggers
When I started blogging in 2007, I was fortunate to have met virtual friends who are now what I call blogger friends. Every now and then, I meet bloggers but these circle of friends have remained in tact and I am glad to be part of them.

Just recently, I was privileged to be invited to my friend, Noemi’s 25th Wedding Anniversary, and there we met again. It was a joy to have seen my blogger friends once again and catch up with one another. I guess “the sense of belonging” comes from the fact that we’re all moms and we can exchange stories and ideas that totally relates to our everyday lives.

Berries N CreamOf course, the conversation seems never ending. We even ended up having a round of coffee and cupcakes at Cupcakes by Sonja’s. Now, I am craving for my new favourite, the Berries N’ Cream. Admittedly, I am not really a fan of Sonja’s – I just feel it’s over rated – but this one satisfied the sweet tooth in me. It’s made up of Brown Butter Almond Cake with Fresh Strawberries and Whipped Cream Icing.

Good friends, good conversation and good food… now that’s what I call LIFE! I just wish I won’t have to indulge on food so much or I will have to really look for diet plans that work.

Congratulations to Noemi and Butch for 25 years of beautiful marriage! May God continue to bless your union!
