Press Release: The Sour-Savory Goodness of the new AJI-SINIGANG® Cube

Sinigang Soup is a ‘must’ in most Pinoy households’ weekly menu. The whole family enjoys a bowl of warm and refreshing Sinigang dish in hot or cold weather conditions. It has been observed though that most people using sinigang mixes available in the market would need to add other savory and meaty seasonings i.e. pork cube and all-in-one seasonings to achieve the ideal sinigang taste, which is not just about sourness but savory taste as well.

The new Ajinomoto® Sinigang Cube is all that you will ever need to cook Sinigang with the preferred blend of sour-savory (asim-linamnam) taste. It is perfect in providing the balanced rich, savory deliciousness and appetizing sourness to any sinigang dish. Each cube is “ZoopSiksik™” because it is packed with the right level of tamarind sourness and savory taste from meaty extracts.

AJI-SINIGANG® Cube is available in single 13g pillow pack cube for P5.00 and 8 pieces of 13g packed in re-sealable stand-up pouch for P38.00.

Trisopure Baby Wash Review + Giveaway

From the time that Jami was still a baby, I tried using different brands of shampoo and wash for him. Most of the time, I stick to what we'll call brand A.

I have been using this brand since Jami was born. It has wide varieties of baby wash that I could use and so far, I am using the one's for active babies. From time to time, I am looking for alternatives and products that would suit Jami well. He's very active and loves to play outdoors. The result? Amoy pawis. His very pawisin pa naman where you could see his sweat dripping down the sides of his face. Konting hindi lang mahanginan, grabe na agad ang pawis. Having that said, his baby wash should always leave a good smell and would at least last couple of hours before mawalan ng effect. Bonus na lang kung tumagal talaga ang amoy ng whole day.

Since the weather is a lot colder compared to summer days, he doesn't perspire as much as he will during summer months. But then, I know it's coming really soon as it's the first of March na! Baka nga next week summer na at tumataginting na 39C na naman tayo! hayy gosh! That means, amoy pawis na naman ang araw araw kong problema.

Couple of weeks ago, Trisopure sent me their sample to try, I got so excited for Jami. The first thing that I noticed though is that it doesn't have a scent. As in wala. I was wondering if that's because I am smelling the bottle and would have to actually use the product and wait for the 'after scent'. Aminin nyo, Mommies, when we looked for baby wash, one of the factors that we look into is the smell diba?!

The next day that Jami took a bath, I was so eager to try Trisopure, placed ample amount of baby wash and rub it on Jami's hair. I was waiting for the scent pero wala talaga. Hahaha! I just realized that it was a soap free baby wash that might cause the product not to have a scent. I then got a little worried that he might get amoy pawis just right after he took a bath.

To my surprise, Jami has been playing all day but his head doesn't smell bad at all. It was not amoy pabango (since no smell nga) pero hindi din amoy pawis or mabaho. I waited the next day to use the product again and see if it was just a chamba pero I got the same result. I was amazed how could a scentless product leave you an amoy malinis na smell.

What I also noticed was, when you start to rinse, it doesn't leave a madulas na feeling on Jami's skin unlike the old wash we are using. That means to me na mas madali syang ma rinse off compared to the Brand A that I have been using.

My final say is, Trisopure is perfect for newborn babies to toddlers. The product doesn't have a strong scent that we avoid for babies 0-12 months and very easy to rinse off which would make our babies bath time manageable and a breeze.

Thank you Trisopure for letting me and Jami experience your promising product! I enjoyed using it so much!

One of my favorite resources for safe baby products is Kokopax, where I found this info for Best Baby Wipes for Sensitive Skin

And since it's almost summer, Trisopure wants more mommies to try their produc. 5 of my lucky readers will win a gift bag from Trisopure too! Yehey!! Finally, a giveaway! hahaha.
