Choose Your Diaper Wisely, Choose Pampers!

Mga momshies, how do we choose the perfect diaper ng ating mga anak? Let me share mine and I know lot’s of parents will agree on this.

But first consider yung needs pati kung ano ba ang priorities ng family dba? Like yung costs ng diaper per month, sulit ba yan and safe sa kids?

1. Choose a diaper that go beyond in absorption. For me eto talaga ang pinaka importante na quality ng isang diaper, if your diaper won’t absorb leaks and liquid, ma-compromise ang skin ni baby which will cause diaper rashes and worst ang infections.

2. Choose a diaper which fits best sa inyong mga anak. For your child to feel comfortable syempre dapat swak sa kanyang katawan ang size ng diaper and it depends sa weight ng inyong baby. Because no matter how expensive ang diaper na nabili mo, kung hindi naman fit to your child, it’s useless. Highly recommended ang  Pampers Dry pants para #lesslawlawmoregalaw ang peg ng ating mga anak.

3. Choose a diaper with Soft Absorbent Polymer ( SAP)

“SAPs are considered to be non toxic, non sensitizing, non irritant and non mutagenic. All in all, superabsorbent polymers are a good thing. They’re non toxic and safe, and they help to keep nappies thinner, so there’s less landfill.”

Scarlet Snow Belo’s Swiss Discovery with Nestlé NANKID

Scarlet Snow Belo’s Swiss Discovery with Nestlé NANKID 

See the world of science through the eyes of Philippines’ most famous child online.

Photo c/o Scarlet Snow Belo’s Instagram page

Exploring new parts of the world is an extraordinary experience. Whether it’s a weekend trip to a beach, or heading off to another continent, there’s always something new to discover, experience and learn.

Discover What’s in Scarlet’s Nestle Nankid! Make sure to catch all the webisodes from NANKID’s Facebook page.

Imagine the excitement that Scarlet Snow Belo, daughter of Dra. Vicky Belo and Dr. Hayden Kho, experienced when she recently went on a once-in-a-lifetime adventure to the Nestle Headquarters in Switzerland. The sprawling center with breathtaking views of the Swiss Alps, is where world class products especially made for growing children are developed. Scarlet Snow excitedly explored the various rooms and instruments that were used in different scientific studies and discovered many new things in the headquarters.

Supportive parents, Dr. Hadyen Kho and Dra. Vicky Belo touring the Nestle Headquarters in Switzerland with Scarlet.

Best of all, Scarlet Snow had the opportunity to meet the brilliant science experts and big bosses who work in the headquarters like Alex Keller, the Global Category Head of Nestle Infant and Growing Up Milks, and Marco Turini, Global Head for Scientific Affairs for Nestle. The experts, in turn, were happy to meet their little visitor, as they patiently explained their latest innovations to her, including how they engineered Scarlet Snow’s milk, Nestle NANKID.

They began with the milk formulation to explain why Nestle NANKID is adapted for kids. They showed how all the essential vitamins, minerals and DHA are present in the milk. They also taught her that there is no added sucrose (table sugar) to make sure it is a healthy choice for kids.

Mr. Alex Keller, Global Category Head of Nestle Infant and Growing Up Milks explaining to Scarlet all the great benefits she can get when she drinks Nestle Nankid.

Scarlet Snow then learned that protein is one of the most important nutrients for a child’s growth and development, contributing to the building of brain, muscles, and body. The optimized protein found in Nestle NANKID is high quality, low quantity protein that is optimal for weight and development advantage.

But Nestle NANKID doesn’t stop at just providing the right vitamins and optimized proteins. As Scarlet Snow learned, Nestle NANKID also has probiotics! This keeps her digestive system strong and healthy as it fights the bad bacteria in her stomach.

Listening intently, Scarlet Snow discovered that all good things she gets from her favorite milk helps her grow up to be future ready. Childhood is all about learning, growing, and experiencing new things. Every experience contributes to a child’s mental, emotional and over-all development. Along with proper nutrition, especially one that has optimized protein such as Nestle NANKID, growing children can achieve their fullest potentials. This is the message behind Scarlet Snow’s webisodes, which also emphasizes the role that parents play in reshaping the future of their growing children.

As parents, you possess the power to #ReShapetheFuture of your children. Watch the webisodes to see how Scarlet Snow, with the support of her parents and with NANKID, is well positioned to become the best that she can become in the future.

Fat Fook Opens at BCG

One of the world’s best-loved cuisines, the delicate yet intense flavors of Taiwanese food can now be found in the heart of Bonifacio Global City.

Fat Fook at BGC

Fast growing Taiwanese chain, Fat Fook announced the opening of its newest branch tucked in the heart of Bonifacio Global City in Taguig, marking the company’s 5th location in the country. Located at The Globe Tower, 32nd Street, the restaurant brings favourite dishes pork xiao long bao, oyster omelette, and stinky tofu without having to spend for airfare, lodging, and other expenses that go with traveling. This Taiwanese restaurant is owned and managed by the same group that operates Ramen Nagi. It was conceptualized by the group’s executive chef, Rachel Kao, who was born in Taiwan and grew up in the Philippines.

The expansion in the CBD of Bonifacio Global City is part of the brand’s development plans for this year. It also looks forward to opening two or three more shops by the first quarter of next year. The first branch opened in SM North EDSA in 2016 then followed by Robinsons Galleria in 2017.  A branch in SM Megamall and also in Glorietta opened both in 2018.

What makes Fat Fook different from other Taiwanese diners is its take out counter that offers some of Taiwan’s best street food delicacies and milk tea.  The street food are all sourced from Taiwan.

Fat Fook modern authentic Taiwanese dishes

Fat Fook stems from the Chinese word for “Fa” (gaining”) and “Foo” (Taiwanese term which means prosperity or auspicious). It can be literally translated to “Increasing luck.”

Taiwanese food is a bit close to Filipino cuisine in terms of how the dishes look. But concerning flavor profile, Taiwanese dishes tend to be a bit salty, sweet, and sometimes spicy. Even if you’ve never been to Taiwan, sampling the food at Fat Fook will surely pique your culinary curiosity.

Hand rolled and hand filled

To remain modern authentic and suit the Filipino millennial palate, Fat Fook adjusts some of its dishes. However, there are certain dishes like the stinky tofu, for example, that retains its strong smell – exactly how it’s served in Taiwan. Most of the recipes are from Chef Rachel’s home, inherited from her parents and have been refined for Fat Fook. They also guarantee that the food is as close to the Taiwanese versions because the owners go to Taiwan regularly to taste and source ingredients.

Fat Fook’s cozy and inviting dining experience is an entirely value-for-money—from its warmly lit interiors to the appetizing Taiwanese meals with a twist meticulously prepared by its resident chef. The restaurant itself exudes a modern vibe but still maintains touches of Asian appeal with chromatic cherry architectural accents and porcelain bowls used as light fixtures.

Fat Fook is also quite an innovator when it comes to their food. They make sure to add something new, making it more appealing to the local palate and to the style and taste of the millennial, yet you can still find the essence of home cooking.

Fat Fook house specialties

Fat Fook is known for their house specialties like their best-selling Chicken Chops, Pork Xiao Long Bao, and Taiwan Beef Noodles.  Sophisticated palates will appreciate how Fat Fook’s Chicken Chops aroma wafts up and bursts in the mouth. The crunch of the special breading, alongside the crunchiness and juiciness of the chicken, make for an exciting mix of textures. It will definitely be love at first bite; with just the right amount of breading and seasoning. With their Chicken Chops, you’ll really get to savor the unmistakably Asian flavor.

Another Fat Fook house favorite is the Oyster Omelette.  This classic Taiwanese street food has a lot of great flavors coming from the oyster, Taiwanese petchay, and the thick egg wrap.  The savory sauce drizzled on top of the omelette provides an added sweet-savory umami taste and all the more makes the dish beautiful to look at.

The traditional Pork Xiao Long Bao is definitely impeccable. It surely does not disappoint. In the steaming xiao long lie broth-filled steamed pork dumplings oozing with rich and warm flavor.

Pork Xiao Long Bao

Another classic Taiwanese must-try dish would be the Taiwan beef noodles. Though looks like a simple dish, the ingredients are made sure they are in their best state.  The noodles are light and cooked firm but remain chewy and sweet, while the beef fork-tender almost melt-in-your-mouth with its intense flavoring.

Other interesting dishes on the menu are Taiwan Sausage, Tofu Century Egg, Beef Tendon, Black Pepper Beef, Pork Radish Soup, Oyster Misua, Truffle Xiao Long Bao, and String Beans with Minced Pork.

Fat Fook dining experience

The dining experience in Fat Fook is likewise leisurely and unhurried, just as it should be when you want to have an enjoyable meal. It’s also not unusual to spot high-powered politicians and popular celebrities dining there. But you’ll probably be enjoying your food too much to even care. It also saves one the hassle of traveling to Taiwan and get a visa to eat modern authentic Taiwanese food. Who knew Taiwanese food was this easily accessible? Thank God for Fat Fook! Your tummies will surely thank you when you come and visit.

Fat Fook has an exciting news for all its followers and patrons.  Its milk tea will be updating its look and packaging, thus there is something to watch out for in a few months.

You may visit Fat Fook at The Globe Tower, 32nd Street, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig. Opens from Sunday-Saturday, 11AM-10PM. Follow them on social media on Instagram and on Facebook.

Saving our Family from an Emergency!

Saving our family, or the least we could do is try! Are you prepared enough for your family?

     Mommy keeping everyone safe!

We Mommies spend so much time doting over our kids, pampering them, running after them and showering them with love that we frequently forget to look into early safety preparedness for them in the occasion something undesirable happens.

Flooded by the news of disasters globally, it got me thinking what would be the least I could do to prepare for the safety of my family. It suddenly dawned on me that indeed we are leaving in scary times or even borrowed time if I may say.

Bombarded with news daily with what’s happening around the world. USA is a land now facing the wrath of Earth, Wind and Fire now with the earthquakes, typhoons and forest fires (not to mention the volcanic eruptions), while we here in the Philippines are constantly living in the brink of fear of them. How ready are we to protect our family if something unimaginable happens? Imagine what would happen if we are not at home and our family is caught in a premise fire, or earthquake, that would drive us parents basically mad with worry!

Got me thinking and got me searching too. I know I needed one for the family and after reviewing some online, I realized that they were all more or less the same. I started to think do we really know if it is the right bag to use, or the right contents for each different calamity (as we all know different emergencies will need different stuffs in the kit). I was close to getting one when I saw a friend having one in her house. That’s how I stumbled upon LifeKit! It caught my attention at first from its clean and sleek design and when I took a closer look, I found it so detailed and super well thought out. Imagine having a kit where everything is so well organized, so neat, itemized and lightweight as well. They even have detachable compartments inside and they provide ample space for you to still put some of your desired stuffs in it (notice how often the kits are packed so full that you have hardly space for your own stuffs?). And thus began my journey to find out more about this brand. I felt I just had to get it BUT knowing me I wanted to know more as it involves the safety of my family. And so I started digging further.

Turned out that the people behind LifeKit were super friendly and very well informed about the safety preparedness industry. Apparently they engage the professionals from the medical, emergency response, first aid and even search and rescue experts as their advisors. They work with the PAFR Search and Rescue personnel, US certified Bleeding Control Specialist, UK accredited First Aid Trainers and more! They even conduct trainings on first aid, search and rescue and they even work with Lifeline Ambulance Services. Okay, trust gained!

What I learnt is that they even plan their kits to cater specifically for different situations and environments (for example if you are staying in a tall building or lower level units, for indoors or outdoors, etc.). They have different kit bags for floods, fire, earthquake and even outdoor survival so we know exactly what we need to mitigate any potential high risk dangers that we may face depending on where we are staying at!

LifeKit seems to have something for everything!

See how organized their kits are!

I was hooked and wanted to share more about LifeKit to all my fellow Mommies out there so I touched base with the founder of LifeKit to find out more. His story seemed more like a destiny in calling. By sheer coincidence or a sign of things to come, the Founder (who is a Malaysian married to a Filipina) shared with me was the first thing he experienced when he arrived in the Philippines was Ondoy! Yes on that very same day! And having again personally affected by the post event effects of Yolanda, it got him searching for a way to help the people be more prepared and led him to establish LifeKit here in the Philippines. Since then there was no turning back.

I was also pleasantly surprised to find out that LifeKit is a Filipino brand which supports the local Filipino manufacturing industry and most of its kits are all made in the Philippines. Over 10,000 kits have been sold to families, corporations, organizations, LGUs, Embassies and it is even being used by others overseas. How cool is that? A Filipino brand, made by Filipinos and gaining a name for itself overseas! Needless to say I became a LifeKit believer and got mine for my family!

Of course, the next thing I looked at was the PRICE! Was so glad to find out that they were very affordable and fairly priced.

In fact they were even cheaper than some others that are sold in the market and what’s great about LifeKit is that they have kits that are priced from P1000.00 to about P7,000.00 meaning to say it is within the reach of anyone! Being the prudent Mommy, I estimated that it could cost about P2,000.00 more if I were to assemble a kit all on my own based on what I bought, and that is even not considering that we still have to get a bag, buy different contents from several different places, spend on car parking or gasoline, and still have to pack them all on our own (and not knowing if what we get are what is really needed). And oh the time saved in this crazy traffic is priceless.

If LifeKit is tough enough for the Rescuers, it should be tough enough for us gentle Mommies too, lol!

To all Mommies out there, do heed this advice. There are times we rush to buy things we don’t need but getting an emergency preparedness kit is something that we all know we truly need if we truly care for the ones we love. We often see many regret and filled remorse over a tragedy, imagine how we would feel if something had happened to a loved one and we know deep down we could have done something to at least give them a fighting chance to survive. What we sometimes forget is that having an emergency kit doesn’t necessarily mean it is to be used only during disasters. Small mishaps and accidents do happen regularly too like minor cuts, burns, etc and in times like these, LifeKit is equally handy too if you have one at home. Oh and they make great gifts too, come to think of it.

If we truly care and love our friends, we could share this blog with them and we could end up saving a life just by doing so (who knows?).

If you are interested to know more about LifeKit, you can just contact me and I will be happy to assist. In fact I will be happy to help you place an order for the kits since i regularly do so for all my friends and relatives.

Why Every Household Needs Lifekit emergency bag ready?

Here in our country, we are vulnerable to natural and environmental disasters like earthquake, flash floods, fire, and volcano eruptions. All these and other factors in our community which to say most of us find it hard to cope because of lack of essential things needed at home or not prepared on this situation.

Question is, how prepared are you? I believe storing emergency packs at home is now essential part of our family to be safe in every situation. And it is true that if you’re in panic situation you won’t be able to put things in order and might neglect choosing what needs to be in your emergency bag. Black out might be experience and causing water interuptions. Home will not be safe for you especially when you have children and possible evacuation during extreme weather conditions and you all may suffer from serious injuries where emergency bags are most needed for immediate treatment and attention to needs.
