Our Baker's Hub Experience

Monday, August 14, 2017


My apologies for not posting that much. Medyo busy lang sa araw-araw na buhay. Haha!

It's another manic Monday. I was supposed to take a leave from work but changed my mind because of an important meeting. So Daddy A went alone to do our planned errand today. I will share about that soon. Meanwhile, let me share our experience at Baker's Hub when we visited their branch at Meycauyan, Bulacan.

Last June, yes that's two months ago, we went to Baker's Hub to buy our baking needs for Matthew's 7th birthday.

Our 9th Year + 4 Surprises

Wednesday, August 9, 2017


Yay! It's been more than a week since my last post. August na pala, where did July goes? 

July has been a very busy month. As in, morning palang super busy na. I am back to making bento once again, which will I share to you next naman. But you can follow me at Instagram and Facebook because I post my daily bento baon ideas there. This post kasi is for our 9th wedding anniversary that we had celebrated last July 27. Yep, July 27. So this a super late post.

Like our previous anniversaries, we chose to celebrate our 9th year with a simple dinner at home. Since both of us are busy at work and we have a little boy to attend to, our travel plan did't push through. It's okay for us naman because we still have no househelp and syempre hindi din namin maenjoy if we keep on thinking about our son.  

Ang haba ba ng explanation noh? Anyway, we just had a simple dinner but I got 4 surprises! I cooked spaghetti and we just bought fried chicken.

wedding anniversary, marriage, celebration

By the way, those flowers, which was surprise #1, were from Daddy A of course. He seldom gave me flowers because he knows I didn't like it kasi mahal nga, haha. That's why I was surprise when he handed me a bouquet of red and white roses. 

red roses, white roses, roses, wedding anniversary

When Matthew saw the flowers, he teased us... "Uy! May nagliligawan!" Haha! 

Of course, I didn't waste this moment and took photos with the roses. Matthew joined me too and he told me pala, "Mommy, gagayahin ko po si Daddy. Magbibigay din ako ng flowers sa asawa ko." Asawa agad talaga anak? Hehe!


Then before having our dinner, we took some photos of the three of us.


This was surprise #2 from our little boy. He told me he can't buy us gift yet kaya heto daw muna.


When we were almost done with our dinner, I saw this on the table in the kitchen. Surprise #3 was this Red Ribbon dedication cake.

I thought the day was over na, but I saw a little box inside my bag. When I opened it, I saw this!


It may not be expensive but it is priceless because of the man who gave me this.


With what Daddy A gave me, naguilty naman ako kasi I didn't have gift for him. So I told him to buy the shoes he wants. Wala kasi ako time to go out even online shopping.

Anyway, more than those material things, it's the time, love, understanding and patient that Daddy A gave me I am most thankful for. I know sometimes I make it hard for him but still he never gave up on me. 

To Daddy A, I want you to know that I appreciate everything you are doing for us. Thank you for everything. I love and will always be here for you no matter what.

Wear A Smile with Merries: Japan’s #1 Baby Diaper

Wednesday, July 19, 2017


Got this cute bag last week.


Merries Diaper, Japan’s #1 Baby Diaper, Kao Corporation

I wish I have a baby girl na but no we are not expecting. Anyway, inside this bag is these, Merries Diaper.


Merries Diaper, Japan’s #1 Baby Diaper, Kao Corporation

A product of Kao Corporation, maker of popular brands Jergens, Liese, Biore and Caronia, Merries Diaper is Japan's #1 baby diaper for almost ten years now. 

Merries Diaper, Japan’s #1 Baby Diaper, Kao Corporation

Launched in 1983, according to Kao website, Merries Diaper is a product of years of research to bring a diaper that is gentle on baby's skin, comfortable to wear and breathable. In fact, Merries was the world's first diaper to incorporate a breathable sheet. 


Merries Diaper, Japan’s #1 Baby Diaper, Kao Corporation

Merries Diaper is on the market for over two decades now, and is continually being improved to keep babies, their mothers and fathers, all smiling.

Merries Diaper, Japan’s #1 Baby Diaper, Kao Corporation, 7 Gifts from Merries Diaper

Who would have not wear a smile with these 7 gifts from Merries Diapers!

Merries Diaper, Japan’s #1 Baby Diaper, Kao Corporation, 7 Gifts from Merries Diaper

The good news is that Merries Diaper is now in the Philippines. Actually, I promote the use of cloth diaper but for first few days when you still don't know the poo-poo pattern of your little one, using disposable diaper is easier. So if you are looking for diaper alternative with the brand you are currently using, try Merries Diaper.  

Merries Diaper, Japan’s #1 Baby Diaper, Kao Corporation

Merries Diaper is available at Rustans (Market, Shanrila, Rockwell, Ayala Cebu and Seda CDO) and Shopwise Supermarket (Alabang, Sucat, Sta. Rosa Laguna). You can also buy online, exclusively at Lazada PH. Price ranges from Php 385 to 815 depending on size and type.

P.S.: Since I have no baby to try, I am thinking of having a giveaway. Follow @mommymaye on Instagram for updates.
