Give Our Pets a Cozy Winter They Deserve



Pets are part of our family that means, we must treat our pets very well by giving them right food and comfortable living space, especially when winter comes.

Winter is the most challenging season not only for us humans, but as well as to our furry friends. They may be covered with shiny fur, but that doesn’t mean they don’t need additional heat to survive the cold season.


Heated dog/cat beds, pads and mats at http://cozywinters.com/ are some of the things we can lavish our furry friends with. They have variety of electric heated pads and beds for indoor and outdoor use.

Walled dogs and cat beds are ideal for indoor and are made of high quality materials. Designed with removable heater, thus allow us to wash the bed covers and cushions.

Heated pad on the other hand, are best for outdoor. Our dogs and cats can enjoy the winter wonderland scenery outside with these “Lectro-kennel outdoor heated pads” under them. These pads are safe not only for our pets, but for us as well who is operating the equipment. It can also be used in a doghouse, porch, basement or just anywhere. 

The extra warmth that these accessories give will surely make our pets roll for joy.

Loving Sky Ranch, Tagaytay in Less Than 3-Hours

Remember our one week official travel in Laguna? Well, one beautiful afternoon after our activity, our group went out for a short trip to Sky Ranch, Tagaytay. At first, I thought that Tagaytay is too far from BiƱan, Laguna but turned out to be less than an hour trip, considering the less traffic on a Wednesday, afternoon. We arrived in Tagaytay, almost 6PM, the sky was already dusk after the sun has set. Too bad we can’t see Taal Lake from the Ranch.

Visiting the place on weekdays is a very good choice, because you get to enjoy the place minus the bunch of people unlike on weekends.

6 Things to Do while in Nuvali, Laguna

Every time I get to visit a place for free, I always thank my mother company for the opportunity. That is one of the perks a corporate employee gets. On March 15, 2015, together with a few of my colleagues flew to South Luzon, particularly Laguna for a one week company sponsored event. The activity may be very tiring but at the same time fun and healthy. Because it was a sports competition for the benefits of the employees and a sort of bonding and getting to know each other for the employees in the corporation who are assigned in different areas in the Philippines. 

So sum it up, a week of fun + the extra fun because we stayed inside the 2,290 hectare Nuvali (Eco City Development), Sta. Rosa, Laguna. And when you are in Nuvali there are a lot of things you can do and enjoy, and among those, are stated below; Our very own checklist.


1. Stay at the relaxing SEDA Hotel

Because we were there on official business, we were booked at the renowned Seda Hotel inside Nuvali. It was actually my second time to stay at SedaHotels, the first one was in Davao. Seda Hotels are pretty much the same with their other branches, they offer clean, comfortable, and relaxing stay + plus the delicious buffet breakfast. Because the hotel is located in the middle of the vast land of Nuvali, it is the most convenient place to stay if you want to try the rest of the activities mentioned here.

Practice Amp for Guitars

I remember my brother who used to be a fan of the heavy metal band,the Metallica back in his college days. I remember how he skipped snacks just to save money enough to buy cassette tapes and how he loudly played them over and over that really irritated me, who prefers soft music.

He was an avid fan of the one of the greatest guitarists of all time none other than Kirk Hammett. Kirk Hammett has been an active musician since 1979 and in his 36 years in the industry he made great contributions and even made collaboration with musical equipment manufacturers. One of which is the kirk hammett 15, a powerful yet portable amplifiers for guitars. It is a combo practice amp with clean and override channels that you can use at home.


If one of my nephews in into guitars, I can consider getting him this equipment to practice on. Who knows, he might be the next Kirk Hammett.

Our Cagayan de Oro Visita Iglesia 2015

Believe it or not, it was our first time to do the Visita Iglesia yesterday. Although I heard about it but have not done the practice. All I remember during my childhood days back in our hometown Zamboanga City, we usually do the station of the cross at the Abong-abong, Pasonanca.

Originally, excerpt from Wikipedia;
The Seven Churches Visitation also known as Visita Iglesia is a pious Roman Catholic Lenten tradition to visit seven churches onMaundy Thursday.[1] On Maundy Thursday of Holy Week, following the Mass of the Lord's Supper, the Blessed Sacrament, the "bread" of the mass, is laid on the Altar of Repose in the church for the Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament. During the Seven Churches Visitation or VisitaIglesia, the faithful visit several churches – sometimes seven, sometimes fourteen, sometimes no set number depending upon the particular practice – to pray in front of each church's Blessed Sacrament.
Although the practice of Visita Iglesia originally done after the Mass of the Lord’s Supper on the evening of Maundy Thursday, many Catholic devotees does the practice before the mass or the early hours of Thursday.

iprice: My Online Shopping Savior!

Summer is here! Philippines is feeling the heat of the sun! And what better way to spend summer, but to head out to the beach.

Hubby and I are already busy planning out our next summer adventure. We are not really looking forward for an out of the country vacation because of budget constraint, but rather spend the summer somewhere nearby, yet very fun, after all “it is More Fun in the Philippines”.

While we were busy planning for our next trip, hubby and I forgot to look for a new set of swim wears for our little boy who already outgrown his rash guards and trunks. However, hitting the malls is way impossible for us these days because of our very busy schedules. Hence, my savior is finding these items online.

Online shopping is a very convenient way of buying what you need and what you want without leaving your home. All you need is an internet connection, a computer and a bucket of patience to jump from one online shop to another. With the growing numbers of online stores, going through them one by one will really take a lot of time. That is why, when I learned about iprice.ph “Your One Stop Shopping Destination” made me jumped for joy.

2014 Limited Edition Commemorative Coins

On December 2014, Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) issued three (3) limited edition commemorative coins and was made available on December 22, 2015.


Acquiring the said coins for collection purposes is not easy in my part of the Philippines, instead I asked my friend to get me the set because her father is connected with BSP.

Three months after these coins are finally in my hands. It stayed with her until the time we get to see each other, which was last week at Laguna. Thanks so much dear friend/kumare! J

The three limited edition coins are as follows:


Circulating in P5 denomination is The Bagong Bayani Commemorative Coin to honor our new heroes the Overseas Filipino Workers.


Also in P5 is the Leyte Landing, commemorates the 70th Anniversary of the historic return of General Douglas McArthur in October 20, 1944.


And finally circulating in the P10 denomination is the 150th Year of Philippine Hero Apolinario Mabini. Born in July 23, 1864, Philippines commemorate the sesquicentennial of Apolinario Mabini in 2014. He is known as the Sublime Paralytic and the Brains of the Revolution.


According to BSP, there were about 10million pieces available for sale. And in that 1 million pieces sold, I was one of the lucky few to get six sets, which I eventually distributed the rest to my friends.
This year, hubby and I are so excited and looking forward for the Papal visit commemorative coins which will be available soon.
