‘Tis the season to shop ‘til you drop and be jolly! Isn’t it? I hope you all have completed your gifts or at least half way done ticking it down one by one. For those who hadn’t completed it yet and still adding one at a time, fret not, 'coz the holiday season isn’t over yet until new year! Hahaha!
Here's fresh news like freshly baked goodies!
Yesterday, i was invited to the grand opening of "The Chef CHARM'S Golden Spoon, House of Pastry and Pasta". It's the newest 'shop and go' outlet of delicious goodies in Batangas City. Apart from the truth that i do love her breads, it so happened that Chef Charmi, was the partner of my husband's cousin and a co-parent in school. We went there over lunch time and we were sampled with a taste of Chef Charm's delicious menu which is available at her very own catering services.
We know that Christmas is always a special time of the year for Filipinos and because of this, SM Southmall seek to give their customers the best and most memorable experiences possible, as they prepare for the holidays. So this year, they wanted to kick-off this amazing season by sending out an inspiring message of selflessness and kindness that is characteristic of the Christmas season.
It's been a lovely day at Tagaytay weeks ago, despite the typhoon forecast that was expected to hit Luzon area in the afternoon of that Wednesday. I was able to brave the 1-hour drive via Talisay Road from Batangas, with views of the Taal Lake from the zigzag road going up.
Together with amazing bloggers, media personnel and the organizers of Avida X Make It Blissful event, our day had been blissful indeed.
Months ago I've been dreaming of having my very own private sanctuary in the chilly atmosphere of Tagaytay. In fact, I've been property hopping for the last three months, checking out different residential and condo living communities in this area. Why not? It's the perfect go-to destination that is just a quick drive away from my place and i love spending weekends at Tagaytay ever since i was young. I know dreams do come true and i'm praying earnestly about it. Until a week ago, i was once again invited by Martine De Luna of Make It Blissful for another Avida Land event at this dreamy place. I was lucky to have a peek inside Serin East Tagaytay, the newest condominium project of Avida Land in the heart of Tagaytay City and i was like thinking, is this a sign?
Somebody said that, "A truly happy person is one who can enjoy the scenery on a detour." Probably, most of us grew up with some vision of what we want our lives to be like. Our personal goals, career aspirations, family plans—the whole white picket fence thing. Years must've gone by and when we evaluate our lives, we often see that life has turned out differently than what we expected. It is true that the road to our goals and dreams isn't always straight. And so here's good news that i would like to share to all those who never stop aspiring!
I was born and raised in the South (Batangas, specifically) and i must admit that i never regret any single day of my life living it here, in the province, where lush greenery, chilly fresh air, the farm to table kind of food (organic and fresh), awesome scenery and beautiful beaches still exist. Ofcourse, the noise and traffic of the metro and the posh shopping malls of Manila where i can get to shop my favorites is still another story to tell. But I love the South. I grew up here, i love its peacefulness and simplicity. And i will never trade Southern Living for anything else fancy and chaotic.

Earn. Save. Invest. Donate.
We send our children to school to learn. Perhaps, some children, just like my kids, learned about money at school in the subject called Math, but teaching them the value of money- how it is earned, how it should be spend, how to invest it and how to save, they would probably learn it from us, parents.
I can still remember during my younger years when my parents would tell me that i should study hard in order for me to get a job and then work hard in order for me to earn and save a lot. But when i landed on my first job, i just realized that with the elevated cost and standard of living, having a 9-5 job will never be sufficient to be financially stable. I kept telling myself, Why do i need to get stucked in the rate of my salary, working hard for a company, if i can be my own boss anyway?
The biggest B2B - Business to Blogger event of the year happened last October 25, 2015 at One Esplanade and the best thing about it is that, i was a part of it! Hooray!
Blogapalooza is a community of bloggers and online influencers wanting to feature and connect with businesses. Blogapalooza has been running since 2011 and every year it just gets better and better. It was an invite only event that only bloggers and businesses can attend. Not all bloggers can be qualified too because prior to the event, each and every blogger will undergo a screening. Fortunately, i was able to pass the screening together with my MumsDailyPh team and we’re so excited to go!
