WARNING: Gryffon Courier *You may SUE me*

12/22/17 UPDATE: The P80.00 has been returned last night.  After 15 days. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The search for a reliable courier is never over.  Simply because at one point, they will somehow fuck up a delivery, lose a package or just not pick up.  I don't usually complain here on my blog as I want this space to be a platform for positivity, but then when I heard what I heard from the person I was speaking to from Gryffon Courier, I knew I had to write this. This holiday season, as we all now, Filipinos are crammers.  We like doing things last minute.  A few weeks ago, I saw this company, Gryffon Courier being suggested by people in a facebook group.  It caught my attention and convinced me to book a pick up. The first transaction went on smoothly.  The second and the third as well, so for another package well I decided to use them again.  I mean what are the odds, right? So, Gryffon courier told me th

Happy Project: #HappyBreakfastJar & #HappyStickerLabels

Who would have thought that posting about the #QuakerOvernightBreakfastClub would open doors for me and a friend on a passion project?  Well, because of the overwhelming feedback I received with the jars, my friend and I decided - why not try our luck selling these jars? It was a slow but steady journey, one that entailed pulling our strengths together and pushing through.  It has been a few months and we are so very happy with the developments. So, welcome - our new and improved #HappyBreakfastJar! We are selling this jar for P275.00 each, our promo is buy 4 jars for P1,000.00 Shipping is P70.00 for every 2 jars within Metro Manila and P280 for Provincial addresses. We have recipes and a carrying bag for every jar. Another product of ours is the #HappyStickerLabels, we must give credit where credit is due - the labels were not really on our radar, but when friends (Mish and Sab of Mothers Who Brunch) says it's worth tapping - well, we listened and #HappyStickerLabels

Serenitea JUMBO Cups 9th Anniversary!

I can't believe it's been 9 years. I remember it as if it was just yesterday.  Meeting up with food bloggers for a cup or two of Serenitea Milk Tea.  Do you know that I used to drive to Serenitea Banawe (it's old location along N. Roxas) about 3x a week just to get my milk tea fix?  I would order 4 large ones.  One for me during the trip back home, one for my Panget and another one for me for the next day.  Yes, I would always ALWAYS buy 4 large cups. The first question I asked my OB when I was pregnant with Kailee was if I could still drink Milk Teas - and she said YES.  I was soooo very happy!  Hahaha..  Kailee was a milk tea baby, and she's already 6!  Time flies noh? To celebrate Serenitea's 9th year anniversary - they're treating us to the JUMBO CUPS!  Wonderful news right?  Thank you Serenitea for loving us. You will always ALWAYS be my first love when it comes to milk teas.

Livin Lovin LOCALLY Fruit Juices

Locally is a juice brand made here in the country.  What is unique about it is that it's made from fruits found locally plus is humorous word play for each type of juice.  Look at the colorful and funny packaging: I think it's so mighty that a local company decided to pursue juices and launch them this way - with a little humor.  It's really cute and entertaining.  I believe that we Filipinos are happier compared to other people in the world - we smile amidst challenges and this perfectly personifies the Filipino brand.  I was so entertained reading through the captions of these juices.  What's more is that the taste is delicious.  I love them all - I don't think there's one variant that didn't taste good.  My personal favorite is Mangosteen because, I don't eat Mangosteen.  Hahaha..  I tried the juice and masarap pala!  The Sineguelas, I just watch my mom eat it too - but now I can proudly say, I drank sineguelas!  Haha.. These juices come

Parenting 101: Is there a right formula for disciplining?

The answer is NO, there isn't. Just this morning - I was so angry at Kailee because she opened toys that was meant for some of her friends.  She knew these toys were for her friends as we were preparing them the other day.  I have just set them aside and I was planning to wrap them tonight. As I was about to wear my shoes, I noticed that there were empty boxes of the said toy on the trash bin.  I could feel blood rising, I call Kailee and Connor.  When they saw me, Kailee had this guilty look in her eyes.  I asked them both who opened the toys.  The pointed to one another.  Connor said *Atchi opened it!* then Kailee said in return *He opened it too!* If you were in my shoes, what would you have done? What I did?  I was so angry that I wanted to throw a fit.  I had to be controlled.  It's so effing hard to control your anger with the kids.  Super hard.  REALLY SUPER HARD!  I really wanted to scream!  But I couldn't and so I did the next best thing - I spoke in a very

Multiple Destinations with Uber - POSSIBLE!

Now, it's possible - MULTIPLE Destinations with Uber! I'm so happy, I have long wondered it this was possible and now - officially, it is possible!  Woohooo!  It's so nice that Uber has rolled this out this holiday season - it's perfect, right? And it's so easy to do, with just clicks on your Uber app.  Wonderful right?

Starbucks 20th Anniversary + Merchandise

I remember it as if it were only yesterday, the first Starbucks store opening in 6750 Makati.  I have an aunt who is a huge HUGE fan of Starbucks and was giddy with excitement.  I remember too that she kept her receipt.  I wonder where that receipt is now.  Hahahaha!!  I remember we would go every Sunday to Starbucks for the next few months, it was a *reward* for us nieces and nephews for going with them to visit my Angkong in Manila Memorial. I can't believe that it has been 20 years already. As part of the Starbucks 20th Anniversary, they are launching these beautiful limited edition merchandise this afternoon at 2:00PM in their 6750 store. Look at those beauties.
