Blessings in February

Yes, I know. It's been a while since the last time na nag blog ako!

Sorry guys, I got so busy with my small business, sabayan pa ng bagong schedule and work load sa office. Kulang na lang mag darna na din ako eh. Although I love the feeling of achievement. =)

Well, share ko na din sa inyo so you'll know kung anong mga pinagkakaabalahan ko lately.

First, I bought an oven in January. The money was from my 13th month pay na dinelay ko pa until January since I can't decide what I'll do with the money. I was undecided if I'll get a new phone or an oven. I was told by a friend in the office that one of our officemate's trying to pawn her DSLR. I took advantage of it since wala naman talo. I have the camera while my money is still safe from my capable hands of spending it in the mall plus, I could have the feel of having a bulky camera which I have been wanting since 2012 pa. It was the same camera that I brought during Mommy Bloggers Philippines' Christmas Party and every event that we had in December including our new Years Eve. As you noticed, ni isang december 2015 event wala akong nai share pa dito sa blog because my netbook's charger is missing. =( Once I have all the photos, I'll share them here. =)

After a month, I returned the DSLR and got my money back. At that moment, I came to a decision to buy an oven instead. I know I could use it to something that could help me earn money in the future. I bought the 30L Hanabishi Convection Oven.

I found this in SM Department Store in Southmall. It costs Php3,499 which was beyond my budget. I was looking to spend Php2,500-3,000 at max. I have decided to check SM Appliance center (still in Southmall) and found the same exact oven for Php3,075 only. Wow! That was a huge difference diba? I wonder why? Pero I am sold. But wait there's more, hahaha! For cash basis, there'll be a 3% discount which came down to Php2,983.00. Sold na sold na talaga ako at that moment. Hahah! Super within the budget talaga. =) I also loved how the oven look and the knobs where very nice to use din. =)

I wanted an oven since last year. I have been compiling recipes on the internet and even made Yema cakes thru steaming in December 2015 and sold some to my officemates. Hindi talaga ako makatulog after I bought this oven dahil kating-kati akong gamitin na sya for baking. I mainly want to bake pastries and my favorite na Baked Macaroni!

I started with brownies but since wala pa akong right pans to use, I had this round pan that I bought in December for yema cakes. Here's my first baked goodie.

My first ever baked goodie! Chewy Fudgy Chocolatey Brownies. =)
I was so glad the recipe didn't disappoint. I then started selling boxes and boxes of brownies to friends and Daryl's friends and his neighbors in Pasay!

I also baked muffins, until I reached Red Velvet and Chocolate cupcakes.

Milk Cheese Muffin
It was a dream come true! I can't believe I started baking and that I am earning money from it. Just last night, I also baked a Chocolate Cake with Buttercream Frosting.

I am so glad that 2016 is showering me with lots of blessings! I am hoping that my baked goods will reach more and more people and that it can be something that will grow overtime.

So far, I am thinking about joining one day baking classes that's available in the market. It tackles different aspects and products of baking and I am looking forward to learning all of them. Masarap din ang feeling that I could invest on baking tools. if you're interested on buying my baked goods, send me a private message thru my facebook page or you could send me an email. =)

Second big thing that happened in a span of one month is me applying for a position of Operations Coach in the office. I was really looking forward in going up the ladder. Although I was given a great battle since mostly, mga tenured people na din ang nag apply. They will observe us for 3 months and will have a final interview after. They'll choose who are qualified for 2 positions by then. Totally, there's 9 of us who's interested in the position.

I was also given another set of task. I am grateful for these things though. I enjoy going to work and learning new things along the way. I celebrated my 2nd year here in January anyway and so far, I never felt that I am tired going to work every single day. =)

Sorry if I made this post really long. It only shows how much I missed blogging and that I hope I'll have more time to do it all at the same time. Parenting-Wife Duties-Wor-Home Baker-Blogger. Eh di ako ng madaming title. =)

Why I am Continuing with Nitri10 Plus

It wasn't a secret that I am struggling in making Jami eat. I've had several techniques that I tried but still getting a very minimal improvement. But then, it's still an improvement right? I am looking forward to the days that he would no longer resist eating.

He eats ice cream more than rice. 

Along the way, I have tried to look for a supplement that would help Jami catch up on his daily vitamins and minerals needs. I actually tried two different brands until I was introduced to Nutri10 Plus Syrup.

Look at him. This photo was taken on our 2nd week of trying Nutri10 Plus.

I was quite hesitant at first since just like any other Moms, we trust those known brands that are available in the market. I was given a project to try Nutri10 Plus to Jami and see how it affects him along the way. One of the things that I was really happy about is his immunity to common sickness like Coughs and Colds. He started taking Nutri10 Plus and I am super happy to report that he's healthy since then. He's not catching colds or cough even in the cold and bipolar weather we have. Comparing it the months before, I would say we were so blessed that he didn't get sick at all. My officemate who has a son in Jami's age says na maganda ang katawan ni Jami nowadays. I would have to highlight that he stopped taking another Vitamin C (aside from included dose of Vitamin C in Nutri10 Plus) which I always buy separately so he's taking multivitamins and Vitamin C. To my surprise, I can see him being "Aktibo't Malakas", full of energy that sometimes, and bibo that sometimes, I can't catch up. Well, who am I to complain for having a healthy baby? This is what any Mommies want, di ba?

I still have remaining boxes of Nutri10 Plus aside from those that we have consumed and those that I gave to my officemates. I asked her if the product suits her kids too and I am so happy to announce that she liked them too! She said that her kids seldom gets cold too given the cold weather.

In case we'll run out, I'll be so much happy to buy again since I am so very much contented with the effectiveness of the product. I just don't have a very nice photo of Jami nowadays to show you how much he improved on but as soon as I get a clearer picture, I'll have this post updated. =)

Maybe it's time that you Mommies give it a try too. =)

**Note: These blog posts about Nutri10 Plus is collaboration with Wert Philippines. I was sent their samples for my son to try. My reviews and opinion about the product is based solely on my experience with the product and isn't affected by the collaboration with the company.
