I am no wine guru, heck I don’t even like the taste of wine. But someone who knows so much about wine guested on my blog!
Wine making can be done from home by a novice if the right equipment is available. If you wish to know how to make wine easily, be sure to invest in these basic items which will help you make a six gallon batch:
Check out Laura Browns’ post on wine making to give you an idea on how to make make and what wine making supplies you need to make a 6-gallon batch.
Right now, traffic jam in Cavite, specifically in Imus and Bacoor has gone wild! This is because of the drillings by MWSS. They started it years ago in Aguinaldo and has been drilling like crazy in Mambog road, Molino Blvd and everywhere.
I don’t understand why they even have to do this. Their resources is not enough to support Metro Manila, so why touch Cavite now? I know nothing about this, obviously. I don’t even know a thing about plumbing fittings but my concern now is, are they ready for this expansion? and why fix something that isn’t broken?
After that heart-warming and humbling experience with World Vision, I got a letter from them saying that I was one of their Most Valuable Bloggers during the recent World Vision Trip in Cavite.
My team mates and I took the tasks by heart as we were really determined to do something different that day. To make a change, if not for us, at least for a child and her family.
To my team mates, this award is not just for me, but for all of us Thank you, World Vision!
My mom would always tell me to buy foams directly from the supplier whenever the need to buy one arises. “It’s cheaper and you can choose from various thickness and foam types”, she would always say. Oh well, it’s true.
The most trusted brand when it comes to foams and mattresses is Uratex, they are priced right and they have stores in almost every town. We get ours from Uratex in Bacoor, Cavite. Located along Aguinaldo Highway in Panapaan, this Uratex store is always jam-packed with buyers. The staff are also very accommodating and responds quickly.
Among their products, it is my dream to buy their Premium Touch Viscoluxe Memory, a luxury kind of memory foam mattress but it’s quite expensive haha
Check out the details of this mattress here: http://www.uratex.com.ph/2011/01/18/premium-touch-viscoluxe-memory/

Mommies on the heavy side (like me!) don’t have to be insecure with slimmer women this summer. Yes they can wear tad bikinis for all we care but we can pull off a vavavoom ensemble without showing off much skin
This get-up is perfect for days spent on the beach or in malls. Pick light-colored tubes, tanks or sleeveless blouses and pair it with white shorts. A pair of flip flops is perfect for the season because it’s light and colorful!
Have meetings and get-togethers to attend to? This get-up is the perfect one for you!
There would be some who are more comfortable in dresses. My take here is to pick a dress with light colors and made with cotton material.
Get ready to parteeeeeeey!

This is an open letter to Darlene, the owner and maker of By Nature Handmade Soaps. I made this 2 years ago and decided to share it with you.
As of press time, I am on my fourth bar of BY NATURE handmade soaps and all I can say is that we (Yona and I) are really satisfied with the results!
A month ago, Yona and I developed Keratosis pilaris, or ‘chicken skin’. Ours was just mild, just rough, bumpy skin with no irritation just above our left knee. Yes, sabay kami nagkaroon and I just discovered that KP is tied to genetics.
I bought Burt Bee products at first. It worked well on her but burnt my wallet badly so I tried browsing the net for all natural products that we can use. I found your site and knew right then and there that I need to try your products! I decided then that I wanted to re-sell it but has to try it first on our skin. Lo and behold, I got hooked!
After 2 days of using Baby Blue on Yona I noticed that the rashes on her skin diminished. With continued use, it totally erased the unsightly rashes on her knee. I used it too, and the rashes were totally gone long before we consumed the entire soap.
Right now she’s using Strawberry Milkshake and she’s perfectly enjoying bath time! “Hmmm, mommy, I smey like strawbeye”
Me? I’m using a bar of Just Tea Tree. I take pleasure in the rubi-dub-dub feeling of using the bar!
I take pride in using these soaps as we’re not just saving the environment but we’re also helping PAWS by buying the charitable variants.
More power BY NATURE handmade soaps!
