The Sharp Fully Auto Washing Machine: Laundry Day will never be the same

Weekends are set to do household chores for most homes. It is a perfect time to do the laundry or a general cleaning. While we wanted to make sure that we give time to our loved ones on non-working days, there were chores that you could say no to - laundry.

Yes! I could relate on that for sure and those who wear uniforms in school or offices. Even those who doesn't require one, you want to make sure that your clothes are washed before the new week starts.

Personally speaking, doing the laundry is one of the hardest chore in the house.. ever! I am so conscious with washing the clothes separately (office wear, house clothes like Sando, shirts etc are washed in the tub alone, same goes to underwear, shorts, pants etc) I am also very keen not to include Jami's clothes from ours. I always make sure that his clothes are washed separately.

While some household prefer the old fashion way of washing clothes (manually), millennial now has a perfect assistant to get the job done easily and timely. Given the fast-pacing life we have now, a good companion will always be a great help.

Derma Visit

Last weekend we were able to visit a Dermatologist for the first time. I was really worried that me and Jami had a "Ringworm".

Check nyo si google what the ringworm is.

Kita nyo na?

Yeah, exactly like that. The appearance is similar to mine and Jami so I got worried! Mine looked really serious and itchy. I have to postpone the visit until last weekend because I have to work on weekdays. I also noticed that it got 100% bigger on Jami's arm so we really have to go.

On the day of our visit, mine looked healed. Natanggal na yung skin but still gets very itchy. So I have decided to get Jami checked instead of us both.

We went to SM Southmall in the afternoon and decided to have our late lunch there.

While waiting for our food

We ate at Mang Inasal na lang para unlimited Rice :D
Wag kayo mag alala, si Daryl lang ang nag unli rice. Pramis! Hahaha.

We headed straight to Casa Medica Inc and waited for the doctor to arrive. We realized that she was running late and we were at number 11 so we decided to roam around at Cyberzone. I was trying to check how much yung mejo cheap na tablet for Jami but found out na even Huawei costs Php5,000. Grabe ang mahal na ng bilihin nowadays. Lol! We checked some phones too like Oppo F1s and it looked really nice, I mean the Camera.

After around 30 minutes, we went back to the clinic and was delighted that the Dermatologist have arrived. We had some bonding moments while waiting for our turn. If you wish to check it, follow me @its_mommy_jen on instagram.

When we were called, I showed Jami's alleged "ringworm" and was told that it wasn't a ringworm. It was a bacterial infection so she prescribed a soap and a cream that we should use for 5 to 7 days. I was also told that if it got worse after 3-4 days, we should bring Jami back to her.

I was so surprised with the amount of the cream and soap! Grabe lang. Hahaha! Although I somehow expected it that it will be expensive, na shock pa din ako. Lol! It costs Php595 for both but then, if it's for our wellness naman diba, then it's nothing. I was asked to put the same cream to cure the wound.

I am so glad to report that's it's getting better (dapat lang!). I am hoping mine won't leave a scar kasi obvious eh. :)

Weekend Blast

Last weekend was our first swim for 2017. Heheh! Makigaya lang sa mga post ng mga tao sa FB about their firsts for this year. =P

Daryl and I decided to have a sleepover at Mama Belen's condo just so Jami will get the chance to go out that week. He was left in the house with Nanay so to ease the boredom and mejo maka refresh lang sa kanya, it was a great escape.

Hahahah! Please disregard Daryl, I didn't have an idea na naka nganga sya, until I saw the photo! Hehe wacky kung wacky talaga. Angelo was there too. He was the kid beside Jami. Super BFF silang dalawa.

We had some fun using an app Boomerang as well. I just don't know how to share it here in the blog but if you wish to check the videos, go follow me at @its_mommy_jen on instagram.

 Since we arrived late in the afternoon, we decided to skip the night and swim the next morning instead. Given the very cold weather today, ang hirap maligo without hot water. Hehe.

The next day, we woke up around 10am, had some bread and off to a nearby karinderya. Daryl wanted to bring me here since last year. He kept on telling me na okay daw dito, maganda daw etc. So I guess I'll give him this day to bring me to this karinderya. Hehe. Although madalas na namin nadadaanan to, I never get the chance to try their menus and hang out there at all. I think he and his friends ate there couple of times and they loved that there was a videoke and very small airconditioned room for those who wishes to sing their heart out.

We were able to buy our ulam the night before from this Karinderya so I pretty much got familiar with the place. It was maaliwalas so it's a really good start. We dined in for lunch time so well ventilated ang place. We ordered Sinigang na Buto-buto for me and Jami, Bagnet with Rice for Daryl and Hotsilog for Angelo. We decided to sit inside their airconditoned (very small) room for Jami's convenience. 

I would say their ulam is just normal. Mas masarap pa luto ng byenan ko but I was thrilled with their Mango Shake. Daryl insisted that I'll try their shake so I ordered one. 

Mango Shake for 55 pesos!
I was amazed. It has whipped cream kaya mejo nag iba ang lasa. I was amazed in a sense na with this serving, it's 55 pesos only! Hehe. Although if they could just make a longer straw to come with it, mas okay. Mejo malalim kasi yung lalagyan so it's better if they have a longer straw.

After we ate, we went swimming na agad. Mga excited lang talaga. 

I was so glad to see Jami swimming in the water kahit malamig ang weather. Mahangin that time but look at him, he's smiling and all. I kept on asking if he's feeling cold so we can stop na but he said he wasn't until I noticed that he's starting to chill so I said stop na talaga kami and he didn't throw tantrums at all. Ayan lang naman ang maganda sa batang yan, he knows how to compromise. Lol! =)

We had a 3 days weekend last week and I was hoping we could spend time in the mall - watch movies, dine out and shop but I guess, simple weekends like these do matter a lot. Just as long as everyone is happy, it's all worth it. =)

Hello everyone!


Kinda late for my New Year's Goal but it's better than never! Hehe.

Anyway, just like everybody else who are so happy to start a new beginning, I am really positive that some of the goals that I missed in 2016 will have it's way to success this year. I can feel it! Charot! hehehe. But yeah, I know I can do it.

Last year, I have divided my goals in to 3. I had Financially, Family and Blog Goals. Click here if you want to read them.This year, I divided my goals in to 4 to make it more specific. I have Financially, Family, Relationship and Personal Goals. Under these Goals, I have listed down my sub-goals along with an official hashtag of #WiserMe2017. I saw the idea from ReigningStill blog and I found it really helpful to remind me of my one ultimate goal this year - to become Wiser.

So here are the sub-goals that I have written down on my planner and I can't wait to accomplish them this year. =)

Personal Goals

This is the first time that I'll have this category. It's sort of a self-improvement goals and I am very positive that I'll be able to achieve these for the year. =)

* Attend Workshops - This year, I am looking forward to attend baking workshops so I could accept cake orders for birthdays. I want to upgrade my skills and craft to make sure that I'll be able to deliver a wonderful cake to my future clients. I know how it feels to have an ugly cake on the most important occasion (during Jami's first birthday that's why I never get to include it on my post before) so I want to have a professional background first before accepting any. =)

*Hair Transformation - The last time I had my hair pampered was in June 2015. Imagine how long it was? Going 2 years na! Haha! It wasn't a necessity for me so I whenever I get the money enough to treat myself to a Salon, I always think that it could go a long way. Lol! So hinay - hinay lang, I know I could get it done this year. =)

*Vaccine - Last year, I was able to get myself a Flu (and my family) and Cervical Vaccine courtesy of our office's installment offer. It was deducted against our payroll and got the vaccine for less than Php2,000 per per shot.This year, I am looking to get another Flu shot for me and family.

*Loose weight - My target this year was to shed some pounds. My target was at least 20 pounds for the first 6 months. Mejo konti ba? I knew my capacity so I won't ask myself to become skinny. I know I will never be (ever since) so I am being kind to myself by just asking it to loose some pounds. Hehehe. =)

*Me-Time - From the time that I became a Mom, I never had a time for myself. I always want Daryl and Jami to be with me everywhere and every time. I guess what I want to achieve here is the chance to be able to restore my confidence. I don't shop for clothes anymore because (1) I no longer know my size (2) I am so worried that they will get bored that's why I am always in a hurry to fit the clothes kaya hindi ko na talaga alam ang size ko. Lol! Alam mo naman ang woman, when you say Me-Time, for sure shopping yan! hahahah.

*Read another book - I want to be able to read another book this year. I was never a bookworm so I don't pressure myself in reading more book this year. I actually prefer a financial book and I am eyeing the new book that Chinkee Tan just released. That's the "Raising up Money Wise Kids". I am just waiting for our budget to allow me to buy this book. =)

*Be Punctual - I lost a lot of money because I am not punctual all the time. I never get the chance to get promoted because of it. hehe! Well, I am late because I am lazy to go to work just like the old times (talking about dalaga times) but with some errands and small business that I am into. All I need is more of a Time Management to get them all sorted out. I started from January 2 and I am punctual for the last 10 days. Hahahaha! I know I could do this and my target will be until end of March to begin with. I want this to become a habit so I could pass this trait to Jami.

Well at this time, that's what I have written in my planner. If there's anything that I could think of along the way, I'll just add them here.

Family Goals

Last year we were able to hit 2/5 so this is really needs an improvement.

*Travel - Last year, we had the chance to travel to Boracay again for some beach time. We were really happy and now looking forward to have another travel. It doesn't matter if it's just within the country but syempre out of the country will be more than acceptable diba? Hahaha.

*Family Time - Weekends are family time. Regardless if we have a budget to go out or just hang out at home, as long as we are together, we are happy with it.

*Home Cooked Meals - Last year was a great year for my cooking skills. I was able to cook a lot and even prepared for the holidays myself. I want to learn more recipes that I can cook at home. It was actually hitting two birds in one stone because home cooked meals are healthier and cheaper. =)

*Staycation - I know I have written staycation last year as well but we weren't able to get one. It is a recycled goal since I want us to experience the night away from home but still be in the city. I am eyeing some sale vouchers around but it wasn't a priority so this could wait.

*Photoshoot - About a year ago, we had our first birthday and family photoshoot. I want to repeat the experience at least every two years. Photoshoot are kind of expensive you know. =D

Relationship Goals

Another category that I included this year is my relationship goals with Daryl and I. I want us to have our own time together without talking about Jami and the house, just the two of us.

*Eat Out/Date NightMovie together/Spa Together - Daryl and I seldom go out of our own. Madalas yan whenever he picks me up after work and we are hungry, saka lang kami nakaka kain sa labas pero yung tipong fast food lang lagi or cheap alternatives. That is mostly I go out at 11:15pm so we don't want a very heavy meal. Due to tight budget, we don't get to watch movies or even go to a spa at all. I want this year to be different. Yung tipong meron talagang date and time that we will go on a date together just like what we used to do before Jami.

*Cuddle and Kiss more often - I want us to increase the cuddle time and of course a kiss from when we got home or before we leave the house. We do but I want more! Char! hahahah.

*Complement more - One thing that we often forget is to complement our partners more. We used to when we were younger, pag bagong damit or bagong hair-do. I want to make sure that we still have that spark so when I noticed that he shaved his beard, I will voice out that he looks neat and pogi. Just those simple things diba? =)

*Understand each other more - Just like any other couple, we fight. There are times pa nga that we fight till we hurt each other so much but then I realized it wasn't right. For any small things that he does that annoys me, I am trying my best to breathe in and breathe out just so we won't end up with a cat fight. I know he does the same all the time. Hehehe =)

Financial Goals

It was a 2/4 for me last year so I am working really hard to at least have the chance to achieve most of them if not all. I pretty much have the same lists from last year including the School Fund for Jami's schooling and a Travel Fund.

*Beef up Emergency Fund - By the end of 2016, I was really happy that I get to save some. Mostly came from our profit in Baking. I was really glad that we started to save and that I am working on it to progress even more. Although the amount is very low, I set down a target amount for the next 6 months. I know that God will provide and give us what we deserve. =)

*School Fund - I am looking forward for this year since Jami will begin another milestone half way thru the year. I want him to start school and I have to allocate an amount to it. I am torn between a Barangay Day Care Center or a Nursery in one of a Private Schools. Whatever it is that we will decide on, I am looking to have at least some amount for his tuition fee or any school expenses. It's better that we're ready. My target is only Php10,000 until end of April 2017.

* Coin to Piggy Bank - Last month, Daryl and I started to save our coins. I have this plastic container that we are using now to put our coins. Most of the time, I would ask Jami to put all the coins in it. I can see he enjoys it at the same time, he's able to practice his counting. The reason we're doing this is so Jami would adapt into this habit of putting aside money. I personally wanted the money saved to go to his passbook.

*Travel Fund - Since we want to travel at least once a year, we have to have a travel fund. Honestly, I don't know where we'll get the money for it since we are a one income household at the moment. But then, any small amount saved will get big later on. Lol!

*More Sideline/Additional Income - I am still very active in baking and selling my goods. I have a reseller here in the office and she's in-charge of selling everything for a fee. I am really glad I was able to make this a dream come true. I have been wanting to bake since 2 years ago and to think that it was no longer just a dream is a big accomplishment for me. =)

*SSS Loan Update -I haven't been able to go to any SSS branch yet but I heard of their Loan Restructuring Program and I am looking forward to take advantage of that. My officemate who had the same case with me went in one of their branch and I heard that they offer a very good deal so I will surely allot a day to go to an SSS branch soon.

I am feeling good about this year although there were some mishap as early as now. I know that it's too early to get demotivated and that I could always control the end result if I'll do better in it. It will be a #WiserMe2017 so let's rock on shall we?!

Our New Years Eve 2017

First post of 2017, it is!

Grabe sobrang bilis ng panahon! I didn't even realize that year 2016 is ending. Feeling ko may hang over pa talaga ako and somehow, hindi ko pa alam ang goals ko for 2017. I have to jot them down and I am giving myself this first week of 2017 to decide on that. :)

So how was your New Year's Eve then?

It's the very first time that we get to celebrate New Year all by ourselves. As you all know, New Year's Eve is very important to me compared to Christmas as we never get to celebrate one due to the religion we grew up with. My family has some sort of a tradition with NYE which I really would like to pass on to Jami. I want him, just like me, to grew up with something to look forward to, excited and motivated to start the year right. The last two year were celebrated with family so I never get the chance to be the very person that's in charge of the preparation. Kung baga, taga hintay lang ako ng food na maluluto na. haha! This year was different so I was really excited and somehow went all out. Well, not really all out kasi I have a limited budget for it. Hahaha!

Our visitors of the day
I was originally planning to spend only Php2,000 for new year's eve pero I went all the way to Php 3,000. I was really surprised to see that the amount allocated for it was so much of what I am expecting. I was thinking na baka short pa ito but it wasn't. Sobrang daming leftover food that I have to put my fridge on full blast to accommodate all of them.

For the 3 of us adults who are spending the night together (Daryl, Nanay and I) I bet the food that I have in mind are way too much for us but the day itself, my younger brother came and celebrated with us so I started to think na mejo kulang yung food. I was thinking of cooking Baked Macaroni para maiba lang since we have Spaghetti's for couple of celebrations na. Besides, I love Baked Macaroni so I really have to learn how to cook it anyway. Nanay also asked if I'll cook spaghetti pa din so I thought I could cook at least half kilo. We were given Pansit by my sister who just live nearby. nearby. I asked Nanay to buy 13 kinds of fruits na din. My brother bought a big ice cream along with Barbecue from our neighbor.

We waited until it's 15 minutes before 12 midnight and prayed all together. Thanked God for everything that we received in 2016 and asked to be guided in the coming year. When the clock striked 12, we went put to watch the fireworks from houses nearby. My younger brother also brought his girlfriend and their kid with them so Jami was awake the whole time. They wer very busy playing together and it made me happy that he had something to do the whole time. =)

We ate somehow just right after 12 midnight and started packing for some food that my brother could bring home. This was where the struggle began. My fridge was too small to accommodate everything. Haha! But then, nakaraos naman. =)

Happy New Year everybody! May you have a blessed year. =)
