The Odd Couple: Heard of Facebook?

Tuesday, October 17, 2017

I like enjoy watching Matthew Perry on screen.  But during the flight to HK, I already saw Friends.  On the flight back to PH, I thought - why not watch The Odd Couple.

And so I did.  I enjoyed it, but missed the gang.  There was something though, that was said in the show that left me thinking.  It was something that Felix said about Facebook.

Oscar (Matthew Perry):  Not everybody wants to share every painful detail of their life!
Felix (Thomas Lennon): Oh really?  Heard of Facebook?

This made me laugh out loud and think - it was so true!  I do see rants and raves on my FB feed, and so much opinion of so many many people all over.  I've read dramas from people and sooooo much more!  I'm honestly surprised to see that people are comfortable sharing intimate details in their lives in Facebook posts.  It's shocking to be honest, but hey - FREEDOM OF SPEECH RIGHT?

I hope people will understand that freedom of speech doesn't meant abuse of speech.  We all know our limits.  Think before you type.  Think thrice before you click the POST button.

If you can't be kind, be quiet.  I love love love this saying now and I try my best to follow it.  It's hard but you know what - it really helps.  Hahahahahaha.

As my mom would always say.  Less talk.  Less mistake.


There is Forever Love in Del

Saturday, October 07, 2017

What are my secrets to a long lasting relationship with my loved ones?  Well for one - LOVE, communication, patience and understanding.  One thing I learned being married for 8 years is tolerance.  Well you see, every single one of us is different, we each have our own quirks and habits which irritate the life out of one another - but since there is LOVE, we tend to turn a blind eye on somethings.  As the saying goes *Don't sweat out the small stuff*.  I have lived and breathe on this saying with my loved ones.  If it's not a very big issue - then let it go.  If it's an issue, then discuss and compromise.  We can't always win, right?  Communication is key too.  Learning to use the right words and the right methods to put forth your message is very important too.  Saying things when angry is a no-no but you know what, it happens so what I do is just breathe deeply and then say this in my head *Lord, Ikaw na bahala*.  Patience is a virtue, a really really hard one for that matter, and so it's very important that we exercise this all the time.  It's hard - but you know what, whatever keeps the peace - IT'S WORTH IT.

We personally use Del Fabric Conditioner.  Thus, when I saw this on Nuffnang's page, I made sure to make an entry.  And my first entry I think in - forever!  Hahaha.  I have picked this brand over other brands since having kids.  Believe me when I say, that I have tried so many brands out there and only Del has passed my standards.  My kids are Del Fabric Conditioner babies.  They have eczema, and I was told that using Fabric Conditioners have a not so good effect on their skin, but you know what - Kailee is 6 and Connor is almost 5 and they're doing great!  Hahaha.  No skin irritation for the past 6 years - amazing right?  A lot of professionals will tell you to stop using fabric conditioners but I risked it and well, we're very happy with the result!  This is the only brand that my children can tolerate and that smells oh soooo wonderful.  The scent is really long lasting and and the best thing for me is that - it's not overly fragrant.  There are other brands that you can distinctly smell from far away.  Did I already say that the scent is long lasting?  I think I did - hahaha!!  Del Forever Joy and Love now has 15x longer lasting bangoooooo versus a regular detergent brand based on consumer test in Metro Manila.  So even if my Connor is overly pawisin - he's clothes remain to be daintily fragrant.  Perfect, right?

Every week, I purchase this for the family.  

Here we are, Forever in love:

Chef Donita Shares Jolly Heart Mare Canola Oil-Healthy Tuna Recipe


“Chef Donita Shares Heart-Healthy Tuna Recipe”

The rewarding experience of sharing a feast is just one of the many perks of cooking especially for Filipinos, and Jolly Heart Mate Canola Oil Ambassador Chef Donita Rose happily shares her passion for cooking among Filipinos by doing her rounds at the country’s top festivals, such as the recent General Santos City’s 19th Food Festival.

The annual Tuna Festival not only celebrates the city’s leading tuna industry, it’s also a venue to relish some of its tastefully prepared local dishes with family, friends, and revelers.

During the weeklong annual festivity, one of the highlights is the cooking demo of the esteemed celebrity chef Donita Rose, wherein the island’s abundant marine resources take center stage with tuna as one of its star ingredients.  

“As a food-centric city, it’s important for every household to look for ingredients and learn cooking techniques that are beneficial both for health and satisfaction of the whole family,” said Donita.

Additionally, it’s a fun-filled treat to General Santos City’s local moms and foodies who were able to sample Chef Donita’s own rendition of a tuna dish using JollyHeart Mate Canola Oil. Heart-healthy and budget-friendly, it’s an oil that’s highly versatile, imparts a neutral taste to almost all types of dishes, contains Vitamin A, and clocks in lowest for saturated fat.

“We must always be conscious that the ingredients we use should be good for the heart, like Jolly Heart Mate Canola oil which contains the lowest amount of bad fats (saturated fats) but packs in the good kind like omega 3 and 6,” Donita shared.

Tuna is well-loved for its flexibility, whether baked, broiled, grilled or fried. That’s why in perfecting dishes using tuna as the main ingredient, Jolly Heart Mate Canola Oil is a credulous pair for almost all types of cooking techniques because it’s also packed with heart-friendly omega 3 and 6. As someone who believes that food preparation and ingredients play a pivotal role in eating healthfully, chef Donita imparts tips and tricks that will make any dish irresistible, less sinful, but still tastes good!

“We are very happy that Donita continues to be the brand ambassador of JollyHeart Mate Canola Oil; she easily connects well with her audience given her lively personality. Her passion for cooking can be easily seen, and we believe that she can inspire others to live a healthy lifestyle by using a healthy oil like Jolly Heart Mate Canola Oil in all the dishes we cook at home and especially in festivals such as the Tuna Festival,” added Zen Prudentino, Fly Ace Corporation Group Category Manager for Jolly Heart Mate Canola oil.

Happy Breakfast Jar!

Monday, September 25, 2017

I received a LOT of feedback when I posted my #QuakerOvernightBreakfastClub.  I was asked by so many friends where I got the jar.  Since sharing is caring, well - a good friend and I have decided to sell the jars!  YEP, you read that right, we have decided to sell the jars with the pre-set lines!

Introducing - Happy Breakfast Jars!

Ever since trying out the overnight oats - I have become obsessed and doing it everyday.  Yes, everyday!!  I love making them the night before and having them fro breakfast the next day.  It's something I really look forward to doing before I turn in and right after I get home from bringing Kailee to school.  Oatmeal has never been the same for me ever again.

And I want to share that joy to you guys as well.  I would like to encourage having oatmeal for breakfast as it has a LOT of benefits to us.  One of them is having that extra fiber in our system.  It's also proven to lower cholesterol in our bodies.  

There are different methods to make oatmeal - and I have just discovered this overnight oats method and honestly - there is no going back for me.  Seriously, I am obsessed with overnight oats!  

What's great about these jars is that come with pre-set lines to help you measure out the ingredients.  You'll just need to follow the lines and voila, you have your own overnight oats!  Easy peasy, right?

We are selling them in two shapes - one is Square - and the other one is round.  Please head on to our Instagram account and Facebook page - Happy Breakfast Jar if you'd like to get a jar or two.

I hope you can let us be part of your healthy journey.  I can't wait to hear from you stories and wonderful recipes that you have made.  Please tag us at @HappyBreakfastJar and use the hashtag #HappyBreakfastJar

Excited to hear from you!
