Regina Victoria Yupangco De Ocampo: On Why Giving Back Is the core value of our businesses



Successful companies are making sure to give back known as Corporate Social Responsibility or CSR. These entities make a positive impact on the environment and stakeholders including consumers, employees, investors, and communities.

Companies need to instill a culture of giving back and such efforts always need to start from the top management. Giving back not only drives change in your community but also within your organization.
To show the mission, vision and ideals of Filremit, CSR activities became the essential objectives of the organization, as well as to serve as a guide to what the company represents for its consumers.

VANILLA CUPCAKE BAKERY LUNCH BUFFET TRINOMA

Happy holidays everyone!


Togetherness is our happiness because this is the moment that we are able to relax while having fun and share our thoughts and experiences in the blogosphere. Sharing new updates and how to improve our blogs. But aside from that we also share like sharing our motherhood experiences since we all have kids and almost same age lang kaya ang saya lang.

Last November 27, Nilyn, momi Berlin and Madz we had a chance to met in Vanilla Cupcake Bakery in Trinoma. They are my mommy blogger friends for two years now if I am not mistaken. Last year, our first meet up for our December's exchanging gift was held @ Berlin's mommy's house. Even in spite of our hectic schedules finally, we made it!! Though Mhaan was not with us because of Cloud's fever, thank God we are able to meet and had our "me" time.

We're so glad because there is Vanilla Cupcake Bakery that offers lunch buffet for as low as PHP 298 and this cafe has a very relaxing place that's really suited for the meetups and different bonding.

International football super star Cristiano Ronaldo, an Herbalife Nutrition-sponsored athlete since 2013, was recently named “The Best FIFA Men’s Player” for the second consecutive year.
The award was determined through a combined voting process that included the votes of team captains and managers from national teams all around the globe, an online public ballot of football fans, and votes by a select group of global media representatives.

“Cristiano proves once again that his dedication on the field and commitment to nutrition has elevated him to the top of his game, earning him one of FIFA’s top honors, The Best Men’s Player Award,” said Rich Goudis, CEO of Herbalife Nutrition.

Ronaldo, named the most famous athlete in the world by ESPN, adds to other major awards and accomplishments in 2017.  He won the 2016/17 UEFA Men’s Player of the year for the second consecutive year, after once again leading Real Madrid to the UEFA Champions League title and finishing as the top goal scorer, as well as helping his team win the Spanish La Liga cup.  In 2017, he also became the first player to score 100 goals in UEFA Champions League and European competitions.  He currently holds four Ballon d’ Or titles, the annual football award presented by France Football, and is in the running this year for his fifth.

ZD and the Play Ground


A family needs time to bond, talk, and have some activities to strengthen their relationship.

Our home is one of the special places where the family live together. But sometimes it is also happening in every family that even when you're in the same place living together but you feel that there is something wrong. Hubby and I felt the same thing.

One Monday morning, hubby was heading to his office to submit all the documents needed for his next contract and he decided to take us with him.

After the submission of his requirements, we headed to Rizal Park Children's playground and played like kids with our son.

We often stroll in Luneta Park but we never entered the Children's playground yet. Finally. we're able to explore this time.

You'll have to pay a small fee before entering the park. For adult is 10 PHP and for kids, it's only 5 PHP.

What's inside the Children's Play Ground in Rizal Park?

1. Huge and variety slides for kids
Their slides have different styles tat are catchy for the children and even in the adults too. Their slides have different styles and these made us more excited to explore them.

Last September hubby and I turned 30 years old. My birthday was Sept.6 and hubby's birthday was Sept. 4. We celebrated our birthdays during our family vacation in Mindanao. We're so blessed because we are able to celebrate our birthdays together with my family. Mindanao is one of our gateways for our family bonding and after 16 years, finally, we're bound to my homeland.

Before hubby's birthday, my parents planned to celebrate in one of the famous Hot Springs in their place which was located in Esperanza, Isulan, Sultan Kudarat near a mountain.

Dawn of Sept 4th, hubby and I woke up with the beautiful birthday serenade rendered by my family. It's our tradition in our church that every time someone celebrates his/her birthday, we organize a serenade for the celebrant. After the serenade, we had our morning coffee fellowship with our family.

Paano ba Umiwas sa Temptation Habang Malayo ang Husband?



Karamihan sa mga mag asawang Filipino ngayon ay tinitiis ang maging malayo sa kanilang asawa o pamilya mapa-babae man ito o lalaki upang mabigyan lang ng magandang buhay ang kanilang pamilya. Maraming mga mag asawa na kahit masakit man ay kailangan tanggapin ang paglayo ng asawa sa kanya at pikit mata nalang tiisin ang pagkakalayo nila.

Ang tao ay hindi perperkto, kahit saan kahit kaylan ay pwedeng magkamali. Higit sa lahat walang marriage na perfect lalo na sa mga mag asawang magkalayo. Maraming nangyayari na hindi natin inaasahan dahil sa ating mga kahinaan.

Hindi rin natin masisisi kung bakit may mga mag asawang naghihiwalay dahil sa "third party" di rin natin alam kung ano ang kanilang mga dahilan o mga pinagdadaanan. Marami nga ang naghihiwalay na araw-araw na nagkasama at nasa malapit lang ano pa kaya ang nasa malayo? Kaya wala din tayong karapatan upang humusga sa kanila kung di naman talaga natin alam ang kanilangmga naramdadaman.

Ano ba ang gagawin ng isang asawa upang makaiwas sa temptation habang malayo ang husband?

5 Things We Did in Davao for A Day



After 9 months of contract on board, finally my husband arrived home. After 1 week of rest he started with his training for his Marine Engineer license and thank God he got it after one month of training.
After 3 days we packed and prepared for our one month family vacation in Mindanao.

We all know that Mindanao is under Martial law. Marawi is just starting to get back on its feet and Cotabato is one of the places that's always on alert. Sultan Kudarat, on the other hand, is always in the news of bombing and of course the City of Misamis Occidental is one of the highlighted red alert before we left in Manila because of the killings of the Paroginog family and company.

In spite all that, we continued our with our plan to have our family vacation. " If there's a will then there is a way".

3 Reasons Why we Planned to buy a Car


(Sponsored Post)

Buying a car is always in our plans because we know  how important and useful if we have that one in our family.


During our family vacation in our province last month, hubby and I talked and prayed about buying a car. We discussed and considered buying one. We first thought about the budget because right now, let's say that finally, we are now "financially stable" and we thank God for that. But during our serious discussions about it, we finally realized the real reasons why we needed to buy a car.

Here are 3 important reasons why we decided to buy a car:

1. For personal and family use
If we have a car, it will help us make our lives more effortless and comfortable when we go to the market, school, and especially when we go to the airport during the departure and arrival of my husband.

As a mother, it's very difficult also to commute if you have a kid not just a kid but an active kid with you. It is safer and more comfortable if we have a car. I want to secure my son's safety always during our travels that's why I always check the seats, the Car Seat Checks is very important things to know and learn specially for me as a mother.



2. For Ministry Use
Car is very useful in our church ministry, specially if we have fellowships, meetings, and visitations it's easy for us to participate and it's hassle free. We also consider helping our church using our car.

3. For Business Use
We're planning to have a business as long as we have a car. We all know that if we have a business we have clients and immediate schedules and meetings if you have a car. It will help us manage and maximize our time.

Right now, the first step we can do is to ask for advice from the experts about cars, research what is the best things that we need to consider. And to do and what is the best car for us, to meet our needs and reasons for buying a car. We consider the Cars.com - one of our source of information about buying a car. I also love their Car seat checks you will learned and get knowledge about on it in here  https://www.cars.com/articles/2013/09/how-carscom-conducts-car-seat-checks/

However, hubby and I we are still praying  and giving it to the Lord. We are asking Him for wisdom in buying a car.

Do you have any plans to buy a car? What is your reasons for buying a car? Or if you already have one, what were your reasons for getting one?

Natural is still best to de-stress your tress



Striking a life balance is no easy task to do. It requires hard work and dedication which sometimes can be strenuous to achieve. Can you imagine how overtaxing it is to juggle between your career and providing for your loved ones?

Studies have shown that stress is commonly caused by interrelationships, such as having to deal with work issues and family-related complications. If left unresolved over time, it could lead to immune deficiency, which later on, might cause other parts of our body to show signs of disruption like hair loss.

Finally the 9 Months is Over for Us!



Last week I was ill and so pale and it's hard for me to wake up early in the morning. But still, because I needed to wake up and prepare a break fast and taking care of my son, I didn't have a choice but to force myself to do the house chores.

Being a seafarers wife it's very hard for me specially when it's just you and your son at home. It's difficult for me to keep myself healthy. Even I really did the best thing that I can do but still we are in this weak body anytime the sickness will attack us whether we like it or not.

KIDS MINISTRY: SUMMER DVBS 2017 (R.U.N)


Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these." ~Matthew 19:14

Every year our church, Golden Shower Grace Gospel Church of Church has a program for the children. We call it DVBS or Daily Vacation Bible School. It's a five day activity for kids from 5-14 years old.

Every summer our dedicated young people and kids department team in our church prepares a great program for our vacation bible school. The main goal of this activity is to learn and know about Jesus Christ our Savior specially for  those children who did not receive the gospel of salvation yet.

Our VBS 2017 themed was "R.U.N" which means Reaching Unsaved Nations. Every day the kids learned from their lesson from the Bible the "Word of God" through the life of Apostle Paul. The children learned how God worked and changed Saul.

These daily vacation bible school activities are learning God's word through bible stories, learning new songs with actions and dance, learning arts and crafts, exploring their abilities through games and physical activities, gaining new friends.

The kids were divided into three groups according on each age bracket. We had the nursery from ages three to 6 years old, primary ages 7 years old to ten  and the juniors eleven years old to 15 years old.
And I was so happy because I was able  to teach and facilitate the Juniors dept.

Here's  our venue:
The decorations were made possible because of the creativity of our talented young people in our church. They really exerted efforts on it and stayed overnight in our church. They used paintings, cartoons and some recycled materials.

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.

Collagen Soap & Cream
Collagen soap plus Vitamin E is a whitening soap for skin with protein and vitamins. Collagen is one of the soaps to help and  reduce our skin aging. Collagen also helps to whiten and make skin glowing. It helps the remove acne, wrinkles, black heads, white heads, pimples and it also whitens the under arms like me :)

Please Pray Marawi City Philippines

Events in Manila: Workshops to Build Your Confidence



Looking for ways to boost your career or get the job you want?








In the Philippines, a research from Jobstreet.com in 2015 named communication, trainability,
and competence as the top three functional skills being sought by employers. A survey by the
National Association of Colleges and Employers in the US almost has a similar result ranking
leadership, communication, and ability to work with a team as the most valuable skills in the
workplace.

You need to continuously invest in developing yourself to cope with the demands of your job.
Aside from reading articles or videos from the internet, an effective way to learn is by
attending workshops where you can interact with the trainer and meet fellow participants
face-to- face.

Go Up Events, an all-around event logistic provider, aims to support your career goals by
organizing various workshops in Manila this 2017. Their upcoming events this June and July
focuses on communication, leadership, and marketing. Attending can be a sure way to set
your learning objectives on track.

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.

Let's know more about Zd, and let me share this 10 things about Zd

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.
