Potty Training my 2-Year Old Toddler

Image
Hell to those who did 3-days potty training! That sht doesn't work! Lol! Kidding! ;p

But if it did work for you, congratulations! But as for me, it did not, it took me weeks.
When Maco, my daughter, turned 2years old last December, I thought I could potty train her already because there were instances she'd tell me she'll go 'peepee' or 'wiwi'. Maybe it is also my fault because I would tell her it's okay since she have diapey on. There were also a few times that she peed in the toilet. But then, I noticed that she stopped telling me she had to pee. So when I was ready to really potty train her, it was hard so I thought to just let it be. I kind of stopped to potty train her. Sorry! I think I was being lazy, I didn't want to clean up her pee. Sorry!

Not sure which month of this year, but I think it was February or March, that I started to put my sht together and told myself that if I want to potty train my little girl, I should be patient with it. A…

SM Aura Premier's 'Art in Aura' and Weekends at the Courtyard

Image
Last May 4th, SM Aura Premier launched'Art in Aura'at the Courtyard hence Weekends at the Courtyard was born. Weekends at the Courtyard is like an art fair with different artsy booths from local artisans to check out!

The campaign, in collaboration with creative assembly KAPWA Studio, was kicked off by a showcase of murals by notable local artists Anina Rubio, Mercedes Olondriz, Archie Oclos, and multi-hyphenate Dee Jae Pa'este, whose works can already be found all over the metro.

SM Aura aims to take the art out of the gallery and bring it to urban spaces, to make it more accessible to everyone.The movement started 3 years ago with Filipino-American artist, Jefre Manuel, with "Steel Safari", a public art installation of 4 animals  unique to the  Philippines, followed by a Christmas showcase featuring Olivia d'Aboville's "Giant Dandilions" and Leeroy New's "Astreopora". Both large scale installations were set to music at the Skypa…

My take on '13 Reasons Why'

Image
Have you heard of this series? Have you seen it?

So I've been hearing about this series from friends, and yes, from the online world as well. There are people who likes it and there are those who don't. It's the series '13 Reasons Why', and if you don't know about it yet, it's about this girl who took her own life because of bullies. 
I've been bullied in high school, but not to that extent -like in the series. I had this one classmate who would always eat from my baon (food I take to school), she would always say "patikiiiiim" in a very sweet tone, takes a bite and then half of my sandwich gone. Yes. Lol! She bites quite big. Haha! She also eats my lunch.

And then I had a friend in 6th grade but when we entered 1st yr high school, she started hanging out with the "cool" girls and when we went to the mall one time, she would tell me to do sht for her. I was like their Jenny (Gossip Girl). And from then, I went away from her. We never …

The gift of healthy ‘CROWNING GLORY’ fit for the Queen this Mother’s Day

CLICHE it may be, but there’s indeed a woman behind the person we are today. And that’s no less than her—our mother. We used to call her nanay, inay, ‘nay, mama, mommy or simply mom. Needless to say, she deserves more than that given the pivotal role she fulfills in rearing us from childhood to adulthood and possibly for the rest of our lives. 



There may be opposing beliefs whether that greater maternal instinct is biologically predetermined or socially imposed, but everyone would agree that a mother is hardwired to love and care about the whole family, especially the children, all the time. For better or worse, it’s always the welfare of everyone at home on top of her priority. 
No wonder she’s an epitome of a doting human being that touches everybody’s life. So, it’s but right to honor and return all the favors she has done for us. And what a better way to do this than this Mother’s Day.

Strangers touching and pinching my Baby's Face

I don't really know how to explain this but I don't want to come off as being maarte mom, and as a suplada. But maybe I am, I know I am, but I don't want it to be my first impression from people. I try to be nice everyday naman, so.

There was a time I went to this drugstore here in Makati, let's not name it, but it's color is green *wink*. And there's this saleslady who found Maco really cute! And of course, I feel good somehow. But then while I was browsing through the facial products aisle, she carried  my little girl and tried to walk away from me. WTF. Her workmate then stopped her on doing such! Good thing her workmate who is a man, btw, said that she shouldn't have done that. And I was just there! I know y'all ask, "what did you do?". Well, I was in shock. I stood there with my mouth open -literally, with a confused face wondering why she did that. My husband that time was outside, and just like the superheroes, and the policem…
