ZD's First: Boils

Last Sunday my Zd bear was enjoying our Sunday activities and then in the afternoon he was active playing with the other kids in our church. In the evening while I was taking care of him and feeding him dinner, he was suddenly pointing on his left knee and said "mama, yayay"! (mama, it hurts). I checked his left knee and I saw a small wound it's like a bite of ants and it is flushed around it. I cleaned and put Betadine  and also put hot compress for him to relax and help him to ease the pain. In the morning I noticed that there was pus in his wound and it's watery. In that morning also I felt so dizzy and I almost collapsed while outside. I was not feeling well.

After our breakfast I decided to head in FGH Fairview General Hospital to have our check up. The doctor said to me that my Zd's wound was not a bite from an insects but it's a boil. So he cleaned and removed the pus. I am relieved and after buying all our needs we went home and took a nap and some rest.

How does Marian Rivera make Garantisadong Ginisarap dishes?

Marian Rivera-Dantes is used to playing different characters: Primetime Queen, recording artist, brand ambassador, style icon, and philanthropist. But her favorite roles by far have been those behind the camera: as wife to Dingdong and mom to Baby Zia.

Marian Rivera-Dantes

As a modern homemaker, who manages her time between work and family, Marian has found comfort in cooking as one of the best ways to make her family feel loved and to improve her culinary skills. On her social media pages, the Kapuso actress has posted some of her own culinary creations that range from baby food for little Zia, stews, soups, and veggies. And on days when Marian is short on time, stir-fry dishes have become her go-to choices for easy, yummy meals.

Head of the family: not just a provider but a father

Imagine working in a world where time seems to just past by and where almost everything changes instantly. Think of having to keep up with an environment where it costs a lot to stop or even slow down for a while. Sound taxing, right? What more of prioritizing the welfare of everybody in the household on top of it all. 

But every head of the family doesn’t mind about it. Fathers are said to be the pillars of our homes. They toil sun up to sun down to give our needs and desires.

Some of them go abroad with tears in their eyes because they will be physically separated from their families. However, there is a certain joy in their hearts knowing that they will be able to provide for their loved ones back home.

To honor these gallant paternal men and let them feel how extraordinary they are and important their sacrifices are for their families, Father’s Day has been a yearly universal event. As we mark again this special occasion on Sunday, June 18, 2017, our applause and recognition will never be enough to show them how grateful we are to have them in our lives. 

Our dads, together with our moms, take good care of us the moment we’re born. They are the ones who provide everything we need for our everyday lives. From infancy up to adulthood, they feed and clothe us.

Mother's Day Inspired Purchase: Collagen Soap and Cream

As we all know, last month was mother's day. Most moms celebrate it the way they want. The morning of that very day, I chatted Nilyn and asked her what we would do after our church service since it's mother's day, she said we must treat our selves by pampering in a salon. And also she suggested that would try to have facial with collagen and full body massage. I was so excited about our plan because she is right - as a mother, we need to take care of ourselves whether it's a mother's day or not we need to pamper our selves as a reward for the all the hardwork. But my excitement led me to tangled again in my house because I could not find someone to watch over my son and also due to other circumstances that hindered it. I was actually sad but I needed to accept the facts that it's always hard when your husband is away from you.

One Monday morning when I checked my Facebook newsfeed, I saw Joy Andrada's post about the new product she's selling online: the Collagen soap with cream. When I saw it, it reminded me of the "facial with collagen" that Nilyn was telling me about. I looked and thought about it carefully. After a day, I decided to chat her and make my order. After 2 days I received it and I was so happy.

The Pain of Losing a Friend

By Raingarden

Before I start writing this, I thought of it for so many times whether to post this or I just let this blow my mind away and take all the heartaches and wait for the right time to heal. But, I think this can  help me also ease the pain inside my heart. Even though we gave it already to the Lord but we are just human who feel bitterness that sometimes lead us to sin.

This past few months, my old friend was struggling about a very sensitive and not pleasant issue about her married life. She denied everything even though there's so many evidences gathered from her family already. By the time we proved that it was true indeed as she could not hide the truth anymore, she responded by blocking us from her Facebook accounts including us, her close friends. So, I think this is the way that I can do right now.

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 nanayinay‘naymama, 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.

Still drooling over the ways on how to spend this time of the year again with her? Well, you may opt for the basics of gift-giving from simple trinkets to expensive items. But take note, your appreciation of her is not equated by the tag price of your present. It’s the thought that counts, as an adage says.

CHURCH & MINISTRY: GSGGCC Youth Dept. "Youth Camp 2017 Goals"

Golden Shower Grace Gospel Church of Christ Young People

Last month April, most of our youth from our church we're not able to attend our yearly LGYC (Luzon Grace Youth Conference) in Isabela. We only had two delegates who attended the fellowship. The reason why most of our yp's didn't make it because most of them were graduating students in college. I think if I am not mistaken about 30% of our youth graduated this year and our church prepared a thanksgiving celebration for them.

While the other youth were enjoying in Isabela's LGYC, our young people here in our church were busy for our DVBS (Daily Vacation Bible School) preparations. I will be posting soon about our 5 days VBS experience. After our victorious and successful VBS during Nate's 3rd birthday we celebrated our victory party in swimming pool in Montalban. (Thanks to the sponsors) and also happy birthday to Nate and thanks for sharing your birthday with us!

10 Things About Zd Boy ( Happy 3rd Birthday Zach Deuel)

Today is the 3rd birthday of our Zd bear. I thank God because He is so faithful to my son and for always being there for him since the day I gave him birth until today.

Way back the day I conceived him I feel so blessed because when he came into our lives of Lemuel he means a lot to us.

Being a mom every other year of our son is the another year of  blessings and achievement. I am so thankful and grateful for another year that God added to my son Zach Deuel. March 25, 2017 he turned 3 and I am so happy because he passed this three years with the good health and still active little guy.

Being always there by his side for three years has taught me so many lessons and made me a better person. Even his father is far from us, still as long as I can, I will do the rest of the responsibilities for his papa.

Most moms, neighbors, church mates, and friends always tell me that they really appreciate my energy and my patience for my son. If you know him personally, you will know what I am trying to say.

My 2016 Pending Posts

It's been a long time that it seems I've been quite and became rarely lazy by posting some of our experiences, reviews even attending some event invites and posting PR's  because it's hard for me to sit and do all my backlogs (huhuhuhuh). So here I am now trying to enumerate all my backlogs so that it helps to relieve my awful feelings and to sleep at night without any thinking how to finish all my pending posts.

Last year when my husband was home it's hard for me to find time to sit back and log all the pending posts because we're busy. I consider to spend quality time for him and for our family kasi pag balik nya ng barko another 9 mos to wait naman na magkasama-sama kami.

I posted some of our gala experienced last year but most of it nakatago lang sa albums ko :) so here we go.

Church Family Day Botolan Zambalez (May 2016)

Healthy blood for a better Philippines: Sangobion launches new campaign

Last month I went to Fairview General Hospital for my ear check up because I had some problem with my ears but I was surprised when they checked my blood pressure.They said it's too low and they advised to take a Sangobion to help my blood goback to normal.

Week before I went to the hospital, I noticed I was experiencing dizziness, lack of focus, paleness, and always feeling tired.I always wanted to sleep even right after I take breakfast. These are the common signs of Anemia.

This week I found out the 5 common signs of Anemia and why iron is so important in our health during the event of Sangobion. The event happened in Romulo Cafe Quezon City.

Here are the 5 Common signs of Anemia:
Lack of focus
Low immune system

Fatigue and other symptoms of anemia can also lower your quality of life and reduce your ability to concentrate and be productive at work.

Everyone gets tired, feels weak, and becomes restless once in a while. But, for people with anemia, these are more or less what they experience every day. When one suffers from anemia, he or she gets tired easily from working, feels dizzy for no reason, and is generally overcome by fatigue.

Sangobion IRON+ (Ferrous Gluconate+Vitamins & Minerals) has always been serious about fighting iron deficiency anemia.
To accomplish this, Sangobion is launching a new campaign, Sulong Dugong Pinoy, and kicked it off with a media launch held recently.

The event featured speakers like the University of Sto. Tomas Hospital’s Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology chairman, Dr. Corazon Zaida N. Gamilla, who discussed the importance of healthy blood in supporting the functions of the body, the prevalence of anemia, its symptoms, and ways to prevent and treat it. Also present was Dr. Christie Monina Nalupta – Director of the Philippine Red Cross - National Blood Services, who graced the event to support Sangobion’s vision of a healthy blood nation.

“Of course, I was filmed on the show saying I didn't want any more kids, but I'm pregnant again. I know so many will have comments on this, but here's the thing- I didn't want to bring another child into a failing marriage.” she revealed. She went on to say that shortly after she started having complications, and the option of having more kids was almost taken away from her. That's when she realized that she did, in fact, want more babies. “This is the baby I wasn't sure if I could have. I know this isn't an ideal situation, but I know everything will be okay.” We are very happy for Kailyn and her boys who are about to be big brothers, and we wish her nothing but the best during her pregnancy.

My Personal Prayers for this 2017

Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. ~ 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

Last night before the last night of 2016 was the end I close my eyes with prayers and thanksgiving from my hearts and I woke up this morning with a great joy in my heart because today is the another year of me. I'm so blissful having this life with so many blessings, love, joy, peace, understanding, God, salvation, family, friends, church and so forth. I don't remember all those blessings and good things that happened from the year 2016 even I'm not able to count them all and name them one by one. How grateful I am!
