Kaye's Addiction


WHAMaholic is owned by Karina "Kaye" Mendez, such a lucky site being owned by a blog designer. A few weeks before now, I already made a review of this site (an entry for their recently concluded contest) on my other blog, but still want to mention that I really love those little hearts and flowers. I already contacted her and I love to let her do an overhaul on my blogs one of these days.

Whamaholic loads fast, which is very important plus clarity and neatness that highlighted socialization, advertisement, money-making opportunities and showcase her talent.
 So for those newbie blogger who want their site beautifully customize head your way to http://wahmaholic.com/

This review is for Bambie's Anniversart Contest.

Peachy's Wonderful World


Wonderful World of Peachy is a two month old blog authored by Ria named after her cute daughter Melandria. The site talks about everything about babies.

It was wonderful that the site loads fast and a credit should be given to the site designer the header and footer are really cute.

I had been bumping to Melandria since 2009 in SP forum, and she had shared a lot of tips and things about parenting and more about her lovely princess. For those first time moms or pregnant mommies, I recommend her site for some reading. This is all I have now got to head to Wonderful World of Peachy for Potty Training advice.

This review is my fourth entry to Bambie's Anniversary Contest.

60 Minutes Gift To Earth




Earth Hour was first held on 2007 by World Wildlife Fund (WWF) in Sydney Australia where 2.2 million of homes and establishment switch off their essential lights and appliances for one whole hour support against climate change. And this had been a traditional campaign that held annually every last Saturday of March, 8:30 to 9:30 pm local time. Earth Hour 2010 have 121 participating countries around the world making it the biggest Earth Hour to date.

Let us all do our personal responsibility to Mother Earth's  future and our future with just 60 seconds of lights out, make your stand and make it a date on Saturday.

Seism


Image from www.longbeach.gov

Seism, Temblor or Earthquake define as shaking on earth surface due to underground movement along geological faults, volcanic activities, landslides or by human activities like bomb blasting. Magnitude is the measure of energy of an earthquake using seismometer and intensity is the measure of shaking in earths surface and determine using  mercalli scale.

Yesterday 25 March 2010 at around 1:29 pm Metro Manila including nearby provinces Laguna, Tagaytay, Pampanga, Bataan and Mindoro was shaken by a magnitude 7 movement that gives intensity 3-5 on said areas. It was for a fact that more than 20 quake occurs everyday but only few are reach our consciousness and its occurrence is unpredictable. It was a chest popping thing to re-experience this specially after Haiti quake having just the same magnitude  good thing our structures are designed to withstand magnitude 7.5 to 8, but DPWH warn the public on flyovers and bridges since these structures are more vulnerable to seismic movements (06-21-2009).


Earthquake is a natural thing specially in our country, having a fault line throughout the archipelago with history of sudden big shakes, it is impossible to know when will it move, all can we do is to prepare for the worst and off course nothing beat the power of prayers.

Neobux - $2.00 (1st payment)
Blog Contest - $32.00 (Levy, Tina and K&P)
Paypal "Donation button" - $8.00 (from my generous readers)

The Expo manage to squeeze in a lot of products this year and four hours is not enough to rummage every booth and to be honest I only manage to bookmark few of them on my busy mind. Here are some of them.


Since Mariwasa occupies the front they are the first one I bookmarked, with their new range of elegant and refreshing design of Pinoy Revellation Tile Collection that includes wall and floor tiles in Filipino inspired designs, and good thing These tiles are locally made, with their plant in Batangas area where they ensure everything is in accordance to "green environment". All scraps are being recycled, all used water are treated and reused and they even have dust collector on their plant. I manage to know this with their an hour product presentation.

Also present on the exhibit are Boysen, Hunter Douglas, HCG, WilsonArt, Puyat Steel, Puyat Flooring, Lepanto Tiles and Canadian architectural material and lot other brands of sealants, door and cabinet hardware's, flooring finishes, window and doors and casements, solar water heater, built in kitchens even plant supplements are present to the exhibit.

I love reading and following her articles and especially those funny pictures and videos she shares.

And I must say we also have common interest, contest! Who won't recognise her after winning $500 cold cash!

Nivea Baby Head-To-Toe Wash Review



Levi has a very sensitive skin, my mom would constantly remarks to my son "hindi ka naman tisoy pero ang dami mong allergy" (you're not white skinned, but still you got lots of allergy). He had been using a special specially formulated skin wash few weeks after his birth due to too much bumps appears on his body. It was a hypoallergenic, non fragrant, non bubble wash and really got along with my baby's skin. But since he is starting to be active as much as rolling and crawling, he needs something to keep him smelling fresh. Talcum powder as well as colognes are no no no to him and his wash would no longer keep him smelling fresh all day.

I find it difficult to find a suitable body wash for him I have tried five different well- known wash, but still experience itchiness. A friend suggested Nivea baby wash, I was hesitant to try it because I haven't read any review or product feedback about it on any parenting forum I browse on through plus it was only available in big bottle and might just add up to our stocks of baby wash afterwards. But then I still bought one and tried it on him the next day.
From then we had bought around 10 bottles of Nivea baby wash, it was so gentle that it manages to replace my sons first specially formulated skin wash and its mild scent makes him more kissable the whole day plus he got to enjoy a bubble bath which he anticipates so much.

Another One Has Arrived - Thank You Levy


My dear Levy of Living Life to the Fullest had finally decided to give my price through paypal.
It was the prize I won from her Wedding Anniversary Contest early last December 2009. Thank you very much dear!!!

Actually the prize is a 500 SM GC, but for some reason our friendly mailman from our very own National Post Office haven't delivered it yet since Dec. 23, 2009. Imagine more than 2 months to deliver a piece of mail from Sta. Mesa to Makati, which according to google map only have 4.8KM distance, ugh.... damn old system PhilPost have. Or maybe friendly mailman is not too friendly at all tsk! tks! tks!

Finally my Napkinssss arrives!!!


Finally after more than a month of waiting, my prize had arrived, I never thought they will all be delivered in altogether, I expect to have them to be delivered separately since I won it from five different bloggers. I got five packages, one of it is not in the picture since my sister made "arbor" one of it. You must say piankyaw ko na lahat, I just got lucky for being contest addict.

 What is that one thing that you will never compromise when it comes to dining out?
When dining out I will never compromise the place safety, cleanliness and food quality. Safe in that our body is still all intact after leaving the place. Clean, the place don't need to be too fancy its ok that it has a well sanitize CR. Food quality is a must, how we are going to enjoy our dining out if we wont have delicious servings.

I will never ever compromise my child's health. It is important as he is important to us.  


 
I haven't tried any kotex products I am loyal to my cheap ones :>
I want to try it since I'm tired of changing pads every 2 hours might give this one a try and see. will give me a sample please har har har!

Beautynomics

I will never ever compromise my child’s health. It is important as he is important to us. :)

My 2010 Vacation Plan



 


And for this year summer I love to be somewhere I can really relax my mind and pamper my body, soak on sun and sea water. The thought of these brings me a Bali or Malaysian destination and so, I tried searching for a perfect place, a resort 2 to 3 hours away from manila. Not in Batangas again, no not it Puerto Gallera, Boracay is out of the list, maybe in subic or Bataan.
Next plan, shopping for perfect summer gears that will suite out perfect 2010 summer getaway, I'm excited!
And I hope Ms. Earth let me have that Neutrogena Wave Power Cleanser,  To prepare my skin to that sun soaking session I planned this summer.
