Matthew's 8th Birthday Simple Celebration

Wednesday, July 11, 2018

Time flies so fast! I have an eight-year old boy now.

Last month, Matthew turned 8. Unlike his seventh birthday when he had three celebrations (Read: Matthew Andrei's 7th Birthday Celebration At McDonald'sPart 1: Matthew Andrei's Babababababanana Party At SchoolPart 2: Matthew Andrei's Babababababanana Party At Home ), we chose to have his 8th birthday celebration a simple one.

Daddy woke up early to make this one.

diy party, simple celebration, birthday

When our little boy woke up, we surprised him with a little cake.

Actually, he didn't know that we will be having a small party for him. So it was a surprise celebration and look how happy he was seeing his cake from her Tita Rona.

Plus the food Daddy and I prepared.

And of course his visitors who traveled all the way from Nueva Ecija just to have this celebration extra special.

Can't believe we already have an eight-year old kid.

An eight-year old boy who doesn't ask for any celebration nor gift on his birthday, still he received a toy from his Tito.

To this little boy who may sometimes be makulit, but always the source of our joy, happy 8th birthday. May you grow to be a man of honesty, honor, and kindness, and a man of God. We love you so much!

Made to Cook Stainless Steel Cookware Set From S&R

Saturday, July 7, 2018

It's been a long while since we visited S&R. So happy that we got a chance one weekend to re-visit this happy place for shoppers.

SNR, SNR Membership, shopping, sale

Daddy and I strolled every aisle. We looked for air fryer but since we're still undecided to buy one we just walked away. Mahal kasi, haha!

Anyway, we then went to the cookware area where we found this Made To Cook Professional 9-piece stainless steel cookware set.

It was on sale Php 5,999 to Php 3999. That was 2000 pesos off. But again the kuripot mode button is on so we really had a hard time deciding. I told Daddy, sige na since most of our cookware were gifts pa on our wedding day. They are most likely to retire anytime soon.

So ayan, we gave in and bought the set home.

4 Tips to Help New Parents Survive Sleep Deprivation

When it comes to methods for getting a newborn baby to sleep, hundreds and hundreds of pages of expert opinion and tips have been written. There are quite literally a million different pieces of advice to help the parents of newborns ensure that their babies are getting the sleep they require.

Which is great as, lets be honest, most of us need all the help we can get in that department. Less written about however is what the parents can do to survive the sleep deprivation that comes with a newborn baby. How exactly do you avoid being turned into a zombie for whom the days bleed into one another and the concept of more than a few hours unbroken sleep is the work of science fiction?

Well, help is at hand with our four tips to help new parents survive sleep deprivation.

Sleep while baby sleeps

It’s one of the oldest clich├ęs in the book, but it is absolutely true. When your baby is asleep, try and catch 40 winks yourself. You might think that it’s the perfect time to have 45 minutes to yourself and start that new Minka Kent novel, but in reality it’s the only time that your baby is going to be taking part in an activity that allows you to sleep as well. Make the most of it.

Give up on late night television

When you went for your scan and got your 26 Weeks Pregnant Pictures of Baby, you might have had this vision of life three months down the line of baby falling asleep at 10pm every evening, allowing you to retire to the couch to watch The Late Late Show with James Corden in peace. Well, you can forget about that. Make sure you are going to bed regularly and early, at around 10pm in order to ensure you are giving yourself a chance at getting some good quality sleep in before the call for early hours feeding arrives.

Don’t turn down help

For many new parents, not accepting help is about pride as much as anything. We see it almost as an admission that we aren’t coping with having a newborn baby. Nothing could be further from the truth. If you’ve got a trusted friend or relative who offers to look after the baby for 20 minutes, then take it. A short nap is not only refreshing for you, but it also gives your loved ones the chance to spend time with the new arrival as well.

Go away with the baby

You might think your days of road tripping are over once your newborn baby arrives but hitting the road with them can actually provide a solution to your sleep deprivation. Throw an overnight bag into the car and head to your parents once every couple of weeks. The change of scenery will do everybody a world of good, it gives the dotting grandparents the opportunity to look after their cherished new relative and it will allow you to catch up on some sleep at the same time.

How to Make Your Used Car As Glamorous As You

Whether your car is a brand new purchase or five years old, you must take pretty good care of it. Your car serves you so much every day. You take your children to school in your car; you go to the office in it, and it also holds all your shopping bags when you go on a crazy shopping spree. It bears the accident marks from your initial driving days, stains on the seats from the coffee you had. The brake may have become loose. All of these needs to be taken good care of. Maintaining your car not only keeps your car brand new for long but also prevents any accidents from occurring in the future. If you want to make your car glamorous and want some tips on how to do so then read on.

Removing the scratches

The first thing that people most often notice on your car is the scratches on it. Scratching removes paint from your car and makes your car look older than it actually is. If you want to preserve the beauty of your car then go for a repaint. If you have proper insurance from the car company then you can get a good paint job done at a cheaper rate. If you still do not want to spend so much then there are pens available in the market that can remove small scratches in few rubs and make your car look brand new again.

Car wash

Your car goes through so much every day. The wheels collect so much dirt and grime from the road. It is important to wash your car every week. You can get the car professionally washed or you can wash it yourself with some good car shampoo available at various petrol pumps.

Car polish

New cars have a kind of sheen to them but as the car ages, it is gone. Do not worry; you can get the sheen back by using rubbing compounds for cars and other polishing materials.

Proper servicing

Change the engine oil, check the brake, proper functioning of the horn, alignment of the car, and the condition of the ac, the airbags, and check for pollution control. You must also change the rubber seals as these get worn out due to wear and tear.

Keeping the tank full

Do not let your car use the reserve oil. Always try to keep your petrol tank full and refill it before it reaches reserve again. You must also check that the car tires have enough air.

Asthma and Sinusitis

Thursday, June 14, 2018

Asthma is a common disease in the United States, and it can be quite debilitating. A large number of asthma patients also suffer from another complaint that can impact upon their quality of life, sinusitis. Let's look at the effects of both conditions, the links between them, and how to treat and manage them.

What Is Asthma?

Asthma is a condition caused by inflammation of the airways. It's a common disease, yet can cause very serious problems for sufferers. People with asthma can have difficulty in breathing, and it may be accompanied by a wheezing or rasping sound. They may also cough, and have a tight chest. There are many factors that can trigger asthma attacks, including allergies, environmental conditions, and over exertion. Inhalers, often containing corticosteroids, are a common treatment for controlling the disease, as well as relieving the symptoms during an asthma attack.

What Is Sinusitis?

Sinusitis is an inflammation of the mucus membranes inside the sinuses within the nose. Headaches and facial pain and pressure are commonly associated with the condition, sometimes accompanied by jaw or toothache. There may also be a thick discharge from the nose that can be discolored. Sinusitis sufferers may feel very ill and tired during a bout, and the symptoms can last for weeks at a time, or longer, only to reoccur again in the future.

The Link Between Asthma And Sinusitis

Studies demonstrate that many asthma sufferers, whose condition can be classified as moderate or severe, also have chronic sinusitis. Either of these conditions on their own can be very unpleasant, but when suffering from both, the negative effects of the conditions can be magnified. It has been shown that patients with asthma and sinusitis do worse with their asthma symptoms when their sinusitis is poorly controlled. Patients with asthma and sinus disease will typically benefit greatly from improved control of their sinus condition.

Treatments For Sinusitis and Asthma

There are a number of treatments that can effectively control sinusitis, and prevent the return of infections. When sinusitis is well-controlled, patients with asthma typically have improved lung function and fewer asthma-related symptoms. Patients with asthma and sinusitis should consider evaluation and treatment by an Otolaryngologist who will typically work closely with a patient’s primary care physician and/or pulmonologist with a focus on helping to get a patient’s asthma under optimal control.

The sinus specialists at Becker Ear Nose & Throat Center are dedicated to using their skills and experience to help patients, to diagnose, treat, and manage their ENT-related medical problems. They are known throughout the world for their expertise. To find out more, visit website at
