Baby Food Making Tools

When I had Baby J, I was determined that I would be not feeding him Cerelac or some other crap you buy in your local grocery that passes as food (especially not after all the food product scares from China). And the 'organic' stuff that are available are too expensive to get, and only viable…

A C-section Mama Birth Story

My son just turned one year old, and Christmas has come and gone.  A lot has happened since my last post in 2013, one that I regret not writing about. I would have been novel to write down my thoughts on my pregnancy, of becoming a mom and all the hopes and dreams and even…

Mommy Loot Bag Review!

A lot has happened, and suffice to say I'm a mom now--more detailed write up on that later--and the past year has been one giant experience for all of us. Now part of that experience is apparently is acquiring things for myself and the baby. Though mostly for baby, whatever benefits I get as a…

Cohen Recipe: Roast Chicken

We're in the middle of everything: the mall is practically across the street, and we're businesses and hospitals.…

Why I’m Saying No to ‘Yaya’

Let me start by saying, I have nothing against Yayas (stay-in Nannies/nursemaids) in general. Being a Yaya or a Katulong (maid) is a profession worthy of respect, as like all service oriented professions it is one of the hardest (and sadly the most exploitable and least professional--at least here). My issue, is how we take…

A Housewife’s Vanity: Part 1

When I was single and working, owning make-up was natural. My mother encouraged it, a woman known for her style and classic make-up. I would remember when I was little, I would be always admiring my mother's vanity which was chock full of bottles of perfume, and case upon case of face powder and eye…
