International football super star Cristiano Ronaldo, an Herbalife Nutrition-sponsored athlete since 2013, was recently named “The Best FIFA Men’s Player” for the second consecutive year.

The award was determined through a combined voting process that included the votes of team captains and managers from national teams all around the globe, an online public ballot of football fans, and votes by a select group of global media representatives.

“Cristiano proves once again that his dedication on the field and commitment to nutrition has elevated him to the top of his game, earning him one of FIFA’s top honors, The Best Men’s Player Award,” said Rich Goudis, CEO of Herbalife Nutrition.

Ronaldo, named the most famous athlete in the world by ESPN, adds to other major awards and accomplishments in 2017.  He won the 2016/17 UEFA Men’s Player of the year for the second consecutive year, after once again leading Real Madrid to the UEFA Champions League title and finishing as the top goal scorer, as well as helping his team win the Spanish La Liga cup.  In 2017, he also became the first player to score 100 goals in UEFA Champions League and European competitions.  He currently holds four Ballon d’ Or titles, the annual football award presented by France Football, and is in the running this year for his fifth.

Herbalife Nutrition-sponsored athletes use Herbalife® products before, during and after training and games. As part of its ongoing commitment to improving sports nutrition and performance, Herbalife Nutrition launched Herbalife24® CR7 Drive in collaboration with Cristiano Ronaldo, a sports drink designed specifically to meet the nutritional needs of the global soccer legend and benefit athletes of all levels.

Checklist when buying your first car

Sponsored Post
When purchasing something, decisions are basically coming from our impulse feeling. Which is not the case as always especially if it’s an expensive one. Some or most of the things we wanted to buy require research, checking reviews, and most of all you have enough money for it.
Reality when we decide to buy our own car, it was a very exciting moment. Somehow think of how much will that cost us every month. But wanted to share with you some things you need to check prior owning a brand-new car.
1.       Have a budget
When you pay to the dealer, it doesn’t end up there. You have to consider after buying, you have to save for the car maintenance, gasoline, insurances and all. Make sure you have a budget that can compensate for all those after-sales expenses. The best way is to plan and set a budget for it. How much are you willing to shed monthly and make sure your everyday expenses will not be affected. Don’t spend what you cannot afford, believe me, it is not a good idea.
2.        Know which car suits your family.
Which means after you consider buying your first car, decide what type of vehicle you needed. We have   Sports Utility Vehicles (SUVs), Asian Utility Vehicles (AUVs), and vans. Choose a car with the good option, is its fuel efficient? Is it light and convenient? Of course, think of your family’s safety. Check if it has Airbag system, Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) and can help you.
3.       Get the right features for the right car
If you have children or nearly planning to have one, it is a requirement to get a four doors type of car. Please always consider children opt to do the climbing in and out of the back seat. Also, consider, make sure you have a car seat with you for your child’s safety. Professional and dealer would explain much of this features when you are decided to purchase your first car.
4. Prepare for all the papers you need.
If you will be purchasing your car via loan application, dealers and bank will ask for your documents like financial documents that will support your purchase. Identification cards, employment papers.
5. Make sure you know how will you pay for it.
Are you be paying cash? Or will pay monthly. If you have decided to apply for a loan, check for the interest rates, years you will be paying for it and how much would be your downpayment. But, if you have the cash to pay for your new car it is the best option you could have, no worries on interest and no hassle paying monthly.
6. Take also the chance to canvass for dealers who offer car discounts, seen some dealers are now offering due to holiday season’s coming.
If all are prepared and ready, go ahead and have a happy hunt for your new car!

Our Nurture Wellness Experience: Reasons why I recommend visiting the place!

I’ve been hearing so many good things about this village called Nurture Wellness in Tagaytay. We wanted to book online unfortunately our intended dates are fully booked already so we take chances going as walk in instead. we paid for P10,000.00++ 1 day and 1 night using our BPI debit so we can get upfront discount.You need to register all the guest’s name and ages as well. We booked together with our children, and our room’s name is kasiyahan. I loved how they named all the rooms and places around. There are activities line up in the morning so our children can enjoy.

Mga inay, here are reasons why you should try Nurture Wellness:

  1. Place is calming and well-maintained. Pag pasok nyo pa lang makakalma na mga stress niyong katawan 🙂

2. Rooms are spacious, comfy and clean. Kasiyahan is one of the Deluxe Forest View Rooms. Air-conditioned room with local and cable channel, private toilet and bath, toilet amenities, one queen sized bed plus two single beds, coffee station, turn down service. You may check this out for more.

To guide you below are the rooms that you can choose from:

Glamping– if you and you’re family are adventurous type, choose this one. They have tents and glamping materials which I believe need mo din magdala ng iba pang essentials especially with kids. This is seasonal daw. Check the link for complete inclusions.
Superior Garden View Rooms – may pa view ng tranquil garden.
Ifugao Spa Suites – Ifugao Hut inspired and with spa. Perfect for three guests or couples na gusto ng relaxation going back sa makaluma.
Family Rooms – recommended for travelers with kids.

3. Syempre ang dinadayo rin, FOOD. They serve great and delectable food. Can you also imagine eating Binagoongang Pizza. (sayang I’m not able to took a photo) pero sabi ng sister ko okay naman sana kaso amoy bagoong talaga, husband approved it naman! Sample breakfast menu nila below. Food cost per head is around P250.00 – P400.00 depende sa food preference mo.

4. Comfort rooms are clean and well maintained. Well, after sa beddings and place, second ko check ang bathroom. Kasi there are cases faucet, sink are not working which is so inconvenient kung pati yun eh problema pa. Especially if you have children with you dba? Sa nurture wellness, maganda ang banyo. Sa Kasiyahan room, we have 2 bathrooms, one with the tub and other one is yung typical na bathroom lang with showers and heater.

5. Facilities. You won’t get bored because sobrang lawak and andaming activities in store when you visit them. More photos shared here.

Facilities are:
Couples Spa Rooms
Reflexology Trail
Gabriella Restaurant
Sabina and Carino Pavilion
Pulong & Francesca Function rooms
Swimming Pool

5. Fun and interactive activities for the whole family.

6. Perfect relaxation, place where you can unwind from all the stress.  Sa simpleng pag upo mo sa labas ng room, walked with your children or hubby, iba yung pakiramdam. Below is one of my favorite message on board.

Nakatulong ba ang information mga mommies? Below are some questions prior booking with them:

  1. How much ba sa Nurture Wellness? Truth is quite expensive sya pero you get what your money’s worth ika nga. I suggest, lalo pag peak season, book ahead of time besides marami ng booking platform dba? Andyan ang Travelbook, Agoda, Traveloka, Trivago, TripAdvisor and Expedia. Follow up question? Sulit ba? Yes, for us it is. Sa ganda ng view, relaxation it provides and service, panalo naman. Prices are vat inclusive.
  2. How to go there from Manila? “By car, take the South Expressway towards Batangas, Exit Sta. Rosa or Greenfields City. Follow the signs towards Tagaytay. Upon reaching the ridge, turn right towards Tagaytay City. Once you reach the Tagaytay City Rotonda go towards the direction of Nasugbu. Watch out for a row of restaurants (Starbucks, Leslie’s, Dencios, Carlos Pizza) on your left. Once you spot them, turn right at Magallanes Square (where you can see Globe Telecom), follow the signs leading to Nurture Spa Village, approximately 3 kms. away”.
  3. If you don’t have private car? Does Nurture wellness provide service? Yes, please contact them before hand and arrange with them.

Nutrition Awareness For Kids

I believe nutrition awareness should start at home first and since school is the second home of our children, they should also promote and encourage healthy eating habits of their students. School programs can help children attain full educational and healthy eating habits by giving social support.

Happy nanay here kasi sa school ng kids ko no need to pay for an expensive costumes and Principal always encourage parents to be creative. Last year, we created hat out of recycled milk boxes and my husband helped sa drawing. See below photo from my instagram: Laking tipid dba? Art papers lang at glue okay na.


Year 2016 Nutrition Awareness

For this year, 2017 I prepared face mask, see below:

Star Apple and Pineapple Face Mask

There are ways on how we can promote healthy eating habits in school or at home.

  1. I am preparing home cooked meals for my children and to make more fun, I am creating bento for kids. 
  2. Let the children know the effects of junk food consumption.
  3. Healthy snacks or meals should be served in school.
  4. Let the children bring at least 1 fruit for each meal, cutting them into pieces will help.
  5. Follow the food pyramid, consists of Grow, Go and Glow.
  6. Be a role model to your children by drinking and eating fruits and vegetables.
  7. Do not skip breakfast.


Let’s promote healthy eating habits to our children.
