Kid’s Weekday Schedule

Hi everyone, sharing with you our kid’s daily schedule of chores / activities  to keep them “busy” during this quarantine period.

The first few weeks of the quarantine period was a slack, kids can do what they want – watch TV or play with phones or get busy with Lego blocks. It was fun for sometime until they got bored. We encourage them to read books but its a challenge for our 8 year old. This kid rather scan and look the pictures than the words and would declare done with his reading in less than 30 mins. Sometimes, we gave them their workbooks and told them to answer the exercises. But then, I can’t concentrate with work since they constantly ask questions and clarifications. Worst, they sometimes get frustrated when I fail to answer their queries as I’m too busy with my laptop.

So to keep them busy while we are busy with work, I created a guide of activities that they could follow. So far they kinda acknowledge it follow the schedule.

Ajinomoto’s Mag-Pinggang Pinoy® Tayo 7-day Menu Challenge

The COVID-19 Pandemic intensifies the Philippine’s battle against Double Burden of Malnutrition. Double Burden of Malnutrition is defined by World Health Organization (WHO) as “the coexistence of undernutrition along with overweight and obesity, or diet-related non communicable diseases, within individuals, households and populations, and across the life course.”

Mag-Pinggang Pinoy Tayo 7-day Menu Challenge

The limited distribution and access to food supplies aggravate the plight of poor and low income Filipino households to sustain each person’s required nutrients through healthy meals. On the other hand, home confinement due to the mandated community quarantine may cause more people to not only restrict their physical activities but also to overeat and/or consume more food with empty calories as part of coping with stress and/or boredom.

Given the importance of maintaining healthy diets to sustain our health and immunity against viruses and bacteria, we should turn to the practice of Pinggang Pinoy® as a viable safeguard to protect our family from diseases.

Ajinomoto Philippines Corporation (APC) introduced “Mag-Pinggang Pinoy® Tayo 7-day Menu Challenge” as a way to encourage homemakers to serve variety of balanced meals to their families.

Stay Well.” campaign to provide Filipino families with practical tips on proper nutrition, recipe menu and fitness activities to cope, stay well and enjoy life despite current COVID-19 situation.

Ajinomoto’s 7-day menu plan is composed of complete meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Each meal provides recipe suggestions for Healthy & Delicious Pinggang Pinoy® Recipes that are easy-to-do and affordable. These recipes are simple, solutions to serve enjoyable Pinggang Pinoy® meals. Homemakers could make use of their extra time to purchase widely available and inexpensive vegetables and fruits to complement rice beyond the usual supply of canned goods. Ajinomoto’s recipes make common ingredients more palatable like tofu sisig, meaty pechay picadillo, pork tapa and tomatoes, ensaladang talbos ng kamote, sweet and sour galunggong and many more.
Mag-Pinggang Pinoy Tayo 7-day Menu Challenge Sample MenuHere are three (3) recipe samplers done in three (3) easy steps:

Meaty Pechay Picadillo:
1) SAUTÉ onion, garlic and ground pork and mix in carrots, green peas and pechay.

My Work From Home Experience

As we all know, many loses their job due to to COVID-19 crisis but fortunately for us, we were given an opportunity to still work at the comforts of our home. Work from home  is the current option given to continue business but does it work?

Work From Home (WFH)
Its been 65 days since our company implemented the WFH setup as a countermeasure against the COVID-19 crisis. Haven’t been out from the subdivision’s compound since then. My work as a software mostly access web pages, cloud portals or product applications. Work can be done as long as there is an internet connection and VPN access to the company’s sites. It was a considerable option. Thankfully, I share the WFH setup with the husband who is also in IT company.
When going to the office, I had to commute for ~45 min to an hour depending on the traffic. Had to take 3 rides. I am used to the commute but the pandemic, I am now scared to take risk.
Our network provider is Globe with a data capped plan.

Cons:Work From Home Setup - Living RoomOf the places in our home, the living room is the place where the internet signal is at its finest, though nothing beats the network infrastructure at the office. But aside from occasional networks lags especially during huddles thru Teams, or loading issues when accessing tools or sometimes being disconnected from the VPN, I think our internet connection is doing good. Though data usage has capping, we use this reason to limit our kids from screen time during working hours.

We also let the kids stay here so we can monitor the kid’s school related activities while we are at our screens. We can immediately entertain their questions. We can bond.

Also, humidity during summertime makes you hot and sweat. We only have 1 electric fan to we have to share. Aside from opening windows or doors, we are of the household that relies on electric fans to keep the room cool.

So being together in the same area would means  unavoidable background noises from simultaneous meetings or questions from kiddos or from news from radios. I’m not complaining, these are my breather – to get chikas from husbands’s company, talk with my kids or get updated from the crisis or happening in our community or the country.

Prepping for family meals is also challenging for a mom who lack this skill. I miss my office lunch dilemma on whether to eat my baon or eat at the canteen. I am glad though this is the husband’s forte :) however, it helps to have a menu guide too.

Pros:
Work From Home - MultiTasking
I am one of the workers who cheer for WFH option because with WFH I have zero commute time. In fact, looks like I have more time :) I don’t have to rush every morning just to avoid the traffic rush. I can work with my pajamas. I can manage my time and be more flexible. Though there was an agreed working time being set but at home I can be early than the agreed time to avoid network congestion when accessing the tools or extend late in case I have some urgent house chores.

Multi-tasking or juggling between work and home can be painful but I consider this an opportunity to have more quality time with family while working. I have my +1 during my meetings, my son seems interested on whom I am talking to and keeps on asking trivial questions. It might be annoying at times so I rely on school-related activities to at least ease their restlessness.  I can attend huddles while cutting my kid’s fingernails :)

Additionally, WFH also taught my kids to be more responsible in doing house chores. They learn to cook meals, wash the dishes, mop the floor, fix the bed and other mundane house chores. Also, you get to observed you’re kids and learn more about them. They are more subtle in their sibling quarrel considering they know we are around.
Work From Home - Me TimeTo sum up, as long as you are productive with your deliverable and comfortable doing it at home, then maybe WFH, Work from Home for you.

MAYOR ISKO GOES GREEN

Mayor ISKO MORENO threaded an impoverished area in Manila while growing up. As the elected City Mayor of Manila, more popularly known to Filipinos as Yorme, he never wavered amidst adversities hurled at him for taking several steps in making a better version of the city he fondly calls his home and crowning glory. Bold and fearless, Yorme puts his heart and mind in anything he does – “Believe in yourself! You’ve got nothing to lose.”

Yorme recently signed Ordinance 8607 declaring the permanence of Arroceros Forest Park dubbed as the “Last lung of the City”, home to 61 tree varieties and 8,000 ornamental plants. The new ordinance forbids the cutting of trees and dumping of waste within the park. Part of his plan is to allocate P1 million solely for its preservation and maintenance away from urbanization and all these efforts stem from his greater plan to make Manila a “Green City”.

Novuhair Yorme Goes Green

Yorme firmly believes in the power of nature. It’s no secret that he advocates on using natural products. No wonder, early this year Yorme became the newest brand ambassador of NOVUHAIR, Nature’s Answer to Hair Loss. Watch the Yorme’s full video here.

NEW Pampers Sensitive Baby Wipes

NEW Pampers Sensitive Wipes is ultra-soft and strong and does not tear easily – for a gentle but effective clean that helps protect baby’s delicate skin from skin rash

Pampers Sensitive Wipes
Manila, Philippines – Whether you’re a newbie or an experienced parent, it’s a known fact that with every precious baby also comes a lot of mess to clean! Everything from feeding your baby, playing, and especially diaper changing, comes with its fair share of mess, but it doesn’t mean cleaning up can’t be easy.

To make cleaning a breeze for you and your baby, Pampers, the No.1 diaper brand in the world, is here to help you with the launch of the NEW Pampers Sensitive Wipes that offers gentle but effective clean for your baby.
Pampers Sensitive Wipes comes with soft and thick fluffy sheets that enable gentle, effective cleansing without easily tearing. Every sheet is guaranteed to be PH-balanced, paraben-free, phenoxyethanol-free, and alcohol-free with Pampers’ unique formula that helps protect your baby’s skin from diaper rash. It is dermatologically tested to be suitable for sensitive skin making it safe for your baby’s bum.
“Pampers continuously aims to deliver the best products for baby’s healthy development such as providing quality diapers suitable for baby’s delicate skin,” said Akhil Meshram, Pampers Country Leader. “This is why we are launching Pampers Sensitive Wipes, to offer gentle and effective cleaning for baby especially when diaper changing.”

For beginner parents, it’s important that you have these essentials when doing a newborn diaper change: a clean and dry surface, clean diapers, sensitive wipes.

Using baby wipes to add to your diaper-changing routine leaves the baby feeling fresh after every wipe. Use wipes to clean the baby’s diaper region, wiping from front to back without missing out the sides and the outside areas, and then wait for the skin to dry before putting on a fresh diaper.

With every diaper change, using a trusted sensitive baby wipe like Pampers helps in minimizing the risk of diaper rash. Because not all wipes are created equal, some easily tear apart. A good tip for parents is to choose wipes that are gentle and strong enough to properly wipe baby’s poo without tearing, so you use less wipes as you clean more.
Pampers Sensitive Wipes offers parents that advantage to clean up poo and wipe’s baby’s bum with its safe ingredients and effective cleaning feature, which are also gentle to use on the hands and body too.

“From my eldest hanggang sa bunso, laki sa Pampers ang mga yan. I’ve always believed that Pampers is the best diaper brand for my kids because they understand parents’ sentiments on what babies’ need, like how to avoid baby diaper rash and importance of diaper change. Trying the new Pampers Sensitive Wipes, super satisfied ako kasi ang gentle sa skin ni Marius and super effective! It was love at first wipe,” candidly shared by experienced mom Pehpot Pineda who is a well-known mommy blogger and a Pampers Ambassador.

“It definitely made cleaning baby poo’s mess easier and faster for me. Thanks to Pampers kasi I don’t have to use more wipes than I should, so I’m sure I’m getting a quality product, no harsh chemicals pa! I definitely recommend this to mommies, especially rookie moms!,” Mommy Pehpot urges new moms to use the new Pampers Sensitive Wipes too.

Whether you’re at home or outdoors, add the new Pampers Sensitive Wipes to your diaper-changing routine so you have peace of mind that you only give total protection to your baby’s delicate skin.

Fight or Flight: Musings from a Working Momma

It’s been 3 months now since I defined myself as extremely sad, for I don’t want to call myself “depressed” – I don’t want to succumb to the thought that something is beyond my control.

Back track to 3 months ago.
Things were fine and dandy. But then the time came – where times where I caught myself dragging my feet to work with the fear of client complain, for that has been a pattern and picture my superior created. Things started out well, UNTIL, I started to question game plans and other means of running the business that may affect the integrity of the numbers. I am used to a culture of expressing ideas, contrarian or not – however, I’d consider it the cause of my Waterloo.

I had shortcomings too, I was not a perfect employee, I missed deadlines and deliverables – but I did my best to contribute to the business (with little to no help) and corrected what needs to be improved. I was given chances of my failings and was once highly favored – but things went south. In my own understanding, I did my best to have a player mindset and avoiding victim mindset all the time. Trying to see the good. Things felt uncontrollable, I started to question my capabilities, the recognitions and even my existence. I see myself regressing.

I was fighting my inner demons to survive.

I wanted to take flight for I have fought enough and that the battle is not worth fighting for anymore. But I have nowhere to go for I feel that I’m not good enough and that I have nothing to offer. I cried myself to sleep, cried in the shower – never been so helpless and useless. Even questioned my sanity.

“Flight “day came – a blessing in disguise. I was not ready to let go but I must for my sake, my sanity’s sake. Still fighting. Still crying myself in the shower. As I slowly immersed myself with the positive environment, I’ve come to comprehend the after effect of letting a toxic person in my head. I have recently come across “gaslighting” and eureka (the perfect description)– I was, we were gaslit.

And it was all coming back to me – controlling my social media posts, asking someone to check my social media (for reasons unknown to me), incident report filed, uncommunicated changes at work, twisted information, comments that make me feel uncapable, gossip, and the list goes on. Though it was not all negative, as mentioned, I was once favored to the extent of having a feeling of debt of gratitude (but repayment is a must).

I have come to accept that there’s something wrong and I must do something.
I’m still healing and on the process of recovering. I might have received his/the message incorrectly, but it has led me to a state I don’t wanna revisit. Never again – I was at my worst.

Saddest.

Some sad people do not broadcast that they are sad – explaining is hard to do. They might not share due to the fear of judgement. Please, reach out to your friends, to your love ones.
Ask them “musta na?”, I know for sure they’ll reply back with “okay lang” but at least you’ve asked.

Looking forward to a healthier and happier year.

Cheers and Happy New Year! And God bless!!
And… I hope you feel fine today. Yes. You.

Exploring Cebu Ocean Park

Last quarter of 2019, we had a chance to take a peek to one of Cebu’s newest family attraction – Cebu Ocean Park. Cebu Ocean Park is a marine life and land animal theme park. It houses a wide variety of marine species as well as insects, reptiles and lories. It is located at South Road Properties (SRP), Cebu City near SM Seaside City Cebu and Chapel of San Pedro Calungsod.

Courtesy of Ms. Kat and Family :D, we were able to enjoy an afternoon full of animal discovery, exploration and admiration.

Our pass was valid only on weekdays so we look for schedules that wont disrupt the kid’s school schedule. We went there late in the afternoon, right after school work. Being on its soft opening, Cebu Ocean Park already attracts attention, thus expect a large crowd of guests.

Attractions to enjoy:

Jungle Trek
You will be greeted by jungle theme as you enter the park. Lots of lush green grass covers the wall of the ground floor. Crocodiles and freshwater fishes are displayed here.

Potatoes USA in Cebu

I’ve known potatoes as a root crop popular in almost all dishes, moreover, present in every meal. It can be served as mashed or hashed during breakfast or mixed with menudo, afritada or kaldereta dishes for lunch or could be plain fried for snacks. In some, potatoes are used in casseroles and stews too. In our household, we love to use potatoes with chopsuey, pork/beef giniling or with chicken liver.

Aside from fries and hash browns, I only know that potatoes can be cooked when fresh. Thanks to Potatoes USA, I got to know more dishes that can be spiced up with potatoes not just as fresh but from other forms as well like frozen chips, shreds, standard flakes, standard granules or straight cuts.

Potatoes are GO Foods. An energy-giving food loaded with complex carbohydrates that give our muscles fuel to run, swim, and jump. It contains vitamins and minerals too like Potassium, Protein, Vitamin C, and Vitamin B6. It is also free of cholesterol, fat and sodium. No wonder, this root crop is a great substitute for rice.
Potatoes USA -PotatoLast week, at the The Suite Room Restaurant in Ayala Mall, Cebu, Potatoes USA was introduced to Cebuano entrepreneurs and consumers. I am lucky to witness the event. It is a cooking demo that was started by Ms. Reji Retugal-Onal, the country representative of Potatoes USA. She gave an overview on U.S. Potatoes as well as shared the many nutritional benefits of potatoes and potato dishes.
Highlight of the event was the cooking demo of Chef Paul Sidney Uy together with Chef Karl John Noel where they used U.S. potatoes on all the dishes.
