Why Momshies Jolina Magdangal and Dimples Romana Choose Pampers as The Superior Sulit Diaper

Times are changing very swiftly. It feels like it was just yesterday when we were presented with the new normal, and today, we are embracing what it brings. While parents find different ways to adapt and get by, it’s the Power Parents that truly thrive. It’s their ability to power through any situation armed with their sound judgment to make the best sulit choices for the family.

For Power Parents, sulit means that despite being on a tight budget, quality remains to be a high priority — especially when it comes to their children. Such is the case for diapers. While other parents may go for cheaper alternatives, power parents know that choosing quality is the wiser, more sulit decision.

The True Price of Choosing Low Quality, Lawlaw Diapers

To help Power Parents make the right sulit choice for baby’s diaper, Pampers has partnered with Magandang Buhay: Momshie Talks, wherein Momshie Jolina Magdangal, Dimples Romana and Dermatologist Dr. Luisa Puyat shared the importance of a high-quality diaper offering long-lasting protection from babad.

When low-quality diapers sag, they tend to have poor absorption quality which leads to more diaper changes in a day, tricking parents into thinking they get the better deal. While these appear cheaper at face value, in the long run, more money is actually spent.

Dr. Puyat also mentioned low-quality diapers that use synthetic fibers and strong chemicals may lead to skin problems such as diaper rash and irritations when baby’s skin is left babad in a pool of wetness which also causes discomfort when baby is left with a diaper that is lawlaw

“Yung ihi mismo ay nagiging irritant sa balat ng ating mga babies, so nagkakaron ng irritant contact dermatitis or allergic reaction dito. Kapag nagkasugat-sugat na ang balat ng ating mga babies, maaari nang pasukan ito ng bacterial infection at makikita mo na nag-nanana na yung mga balat nila kasi kinakamot din nila, at maaring pasukan ng fungal infection—ang itsura naman nito ay namumulang balat na may pangangaliskis,” Dr. Puyat added. 


How do Power Parents choose what’s sulit for their babies?

When it comes to diapers, Momshie Dimples and Jolina are confident that they’ve made the right sulit choice for their babies by choosing Pampers Baby Dry Pants that gives long-lasting protection against babad.

Momshie Dimples said that she doesn’t need to constantly do a diaper change and frequently check her baby’s bum for leakage. “Buti na lang nasubukan ko ang Pampers! Ang Pampers Dry Pants kasi ay may triple pwet-tection. Una, naa-absorb instantly ang basa from front to back. Pangalawa pa, may anti-leak guards — kaya walang tagas talaga. Pangatlo, hindi nakakairita sa skin dahil may additional layer ito na mabilis sumipsip ng basa kaya hindi mararamdaman ng mga babies na basa na diapers nila. Perfect!” She excitedly shared.

As part of the sulit diaper regimen, it is important to use gentle products on baby that effectively cleanse yet does not irritate. Momshie Jolina mentions that Pampers also has baby wipes that are made perfect for baby’s sensitive skin when changing diapers. Pampers Sensitive Wipes are free from alcohol, Parabens, and Phenoxyl-ethanol— keeping baby’s bum clean, dry, and free from irritation and discomfort. 

Dr. Puyat stressed the importance of Skin Health Alliance’s recommendation on Pampers quality with its triple pwet-tection against babad elements — saying that the accreditation means, “Ang iyong produkto ay may scientific basis o may scientific [evidence].” To see more of the Momshies talk about their sulit choices for their babies, click here <LINK> to watch the Facebook Live video replay.

Power Moms Who Power Through at Home with These Practical Parenting Hacks

Parenting is no easy feat; And providing the best for your child amidst a crisis is a challenge like no other. As parenting outlook and practices change, moms continue to power through in providing the best for their children. Because amidst hardships and uncertainties, a mother’s strength shines through.

For they are Power moms.

In a time when resources are limited, the wisest course of action for power moms is to be practical and madiskarte. Being on a tight budget is one of the many obstacles that moms experience, but it doesn’t mean having to scrimp on quality products for your children. Finding products that deliver baby the protection they need, while still being easy on the wallet, may not be easy, but it is possible.

This is why Pampers continues with its mission by providing superior products to support parents in keeping baby safe from ba-bad elements like pee, while helping them save more in the long run. From choosing practical quality products for baby, to finding creative ways to keep them entertained, there really is no innovator like a practical #PampersPowerMom.

To help promote baby’s continuous healthy development, we provided practical smart hacks for Power Moms to conveniently do at home.

Here are 6 practical smart hacks that allow you to continue providing the best for baby amidst a crisis:

 signs of discomfort.

1. Protect baby through practicing good hygiene while saving on hidden costs

Power moms know the importance of making a habit of good hygiene to help keep germs and viruses away. When baby’s sensitive skin is also kept clean and dry, it is also a good line of defense against skin discomfort and irritation. It is important to use gentle products on baby that effectively cleanse yet does not irritate.

When cleaning during a diaper change, we recommend wipes that are gentle on the skin, and as mild as washcloth and water. With baby’s sensitive skin needs in mind, Pampers Sensitive Wipes is free from alcohol, Parabens, and Phenoxyl-ethanol.

For an ultra-soft and strong baby wipe, Pampers Sensitive Wipes allows less wiping without sacrificing good hygiene for baby, helping lead to less wipes uses and more savings.

2. Motivate and inspire hard work through rewards  

Rewarding baby can come in many forms, and not just by buying them toys. Rewards serve as acknowledgements for a job well done. They provide an emphasis in good actions and helps baby to complete tasks.  

Through makeshift currencies like paper money, you can reward baby for accomplishing simple tasks at home. A reward chart also provides a visualization of baby’s progress in completing a task. Reward charts can be a hand-written poster stuck on the wall or even a sticker chart on the fridge. 

They can then use this hard-earned reward to “buy” snacks from the pantry or choose a movie to watch at home. Power moms know that introducing them to a reward system early on will show them the value of hard work and will hopefully teach them motivation to always work hard at any given tasks.

3. Use quality items to cut down on costs

At this time when health and safety are most critical, using quality products for your baby can help assure that they are getting the protection they need. This can be important for products that baby often uses, and those that touch their skin, like diapers.

Low quality diapers that can get lawlaw easily may lead to serious problems when baby’s skin is babad in a pool of wetness. Babies that experience babad are left with a breathing ground of bacteria, that could lead to diaper rash and skin irritations. What makes it worse is when their diapers are rarely changed.
Pampers diapers are less lawlaw* and can absorb pee across the entire diaper, so there are less chances of a babad diaper. It absorbs faster and does not get full easily leading to less diaper change, being a practical choice for more savings.
Tested by a #PampersPowerMom, Mommy Omni is thankful to choose quality products like Pampers.
“It gives me and Bryce the guarantee we need that our Zed is safe from being babad in a pool of wetness that can harm his skin. Iba talaga kapag less lawlaw!” She adds, “Since it (Pampers Diapers) is less lawlaw, I can change the diapers less in a day and so I save more.”

Caring for your baby is a tough job, that’s why Pampers provides quality products that help protecting baby easier for practical power moms like you.

4. Encourage creativity using household items

Power moms know that they can stimulate baby’s imagination with household items that can be as good as fancy toys. By using a flashlight, you can perform a shadow play show by turning the lights down in a room and striking a flashlight against a wall. With different movements of your body parts, you can make up so many characters that will keep baby entertained and thinking. Release the inner painter by letting baby do water painting on a cardboard box. With only a tub of water, and cardboard boxes, let baby’s imagination flow with their hands at almost no cost.

5. Boost baby’s mental and physical development at home with zero-cost activities

Since summer classes and workshops are cancelled, Power moms turn into their smart and practical ways on how to keep babies learning dance, art, and even sports activities at home at no cost for mommy.

Let baby move freely by staging concerts at home through sing-alongs and doing various dance videos that are easy to follow. Utilize cookware as drum set, use a shoe box with tied strings, a hairbrush as microphone, and have your whole family act and rock out as a band to their favorite nursery rhymes.

Sports sessions are not cancelled at home with activities like hide and seek, pillow fights, or board or card games. Power moms know how resourceful that can be when the situation calls for it.

In partnership with Power moms all over the Philippines, Pampers holds “It’s a Mom’s Life” livestreams on Facebook where moms share insights on how they are coping through practical means and creating new habits while at home.
“#PampersPowerMom Hacks” content is also available at Pampers Lazada page, featuring practical ideas from experts and moms that families can try at the safety of their homes. Moms can access all of these at Pampers Philippines Facebook page.

Smile Train Global Ambassador Catriona Gray Joins Online Speech Therapy Sessions for Cleft Patients

Smile Train Global Ambassador Catriona Gray joins the organization’s online Speech Therapy session to reach and educate more patients with cleft lip and palate amid the enhanced community quarantine (ECQ).

MANILA, PHILIPPINES — The world’s leading cleft organization, Smile Train Philippines recently held a virtual speech therapy session with its Global Ambassador, Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray, in an effort to reach and continue educating more patients with a cleft lip and/or palate amid the enhanced community quarantine.

Smile Train recently launched virtual speech therapy sessions with its volunteer Ms. Veronica Yu CSP-PASP, a Speech Language Pathologist and a faculty member of the University of Sto. Tomas College of Rehabilitation Sciences. She led the discussion on the effects of cleft disability on speech and the impact of feeding difficulties on the physical well-being of children. Ms. Yu also demonstrated her patients’ progress on proper pronunciation, which they were able to accomplish during the separate one-on-one online therapy sessions.

Smile Train Volunteer Ms. Veronica Yu, CSP-PASP, a Speech Language Pathologist, faculty member of the University of Sto. Tomas College of Rehabilitation Sciences, explored topics about the effects of cleft on speech and its impacts on the physical well-being of children.

The session also allowed viewers to ask questions about their family members experiencing difficulties with their conditions. Numerous viewers had inquiries about how many speech therapy sessions are required and what other procedures patients need to undergo if they have cleft lip and/or palate. 

In her welcome message, Smile Train Global Ambassador Catriona Gray acknowledged the efforts of the organization to continue providing free comprehensive cleft care including speech therapy, while free surgeries and physical therapy sessions are on hold. She plans to support Smile Train’s upcoming initiatives during the ECQ.

“I was able to work closely with Smile Train for the first time during my reign as Miss Universe and it inspired me to help the organization change the lives of many people around the world. Now as the newest global ambassador, I am committed to supporting its patients in the Philippines during this pandemic through the organization’s online speech therapy classes,” said Gray.

With the support and collaboration of its donors, partners, and ambassadors around the world, Smile Train is able to transform the lives of patients with cleft and help improve their ability to eat, breathe, speak, and ultimately thrive. Even during the ECQ, Smile Train continues to find sustainable solutions such as social media to help their beneficiaries.

“Smile Train has always been committed to exploring various avenues and utilizing technology to reach more patients and communities in the Philippines, especially during this ECQ. With the support of Catriona, we hope to reach more patients and families so that we can continue to provide them with the care that they need, even during a pandemic,” said Smile Train South East Asia Director Kimmy Flaviano.

Smile Train plans to hold more sessions in the coming weeks to address concerns of patients or parents about receiving cleft treatment during this time and talking about staying positive and productive during the ECQ.

Bayview Hotel GM Eugene T. Yap: Leading with compassion

A good leader possesses not one but a combination of many good qualities. For Bayview Park Hotel Manila’s General Manager Eugene T. Yap, his best assets stem from his innate compassion for people and the desire to always provide service that only gets better over time.

Mr. Yap took his seat as the hotel’s General Manager in 2002, but he has been with Bayview Hotel Development Corp., the company that owns and operates the hotel, since it acquired the property in the late 1980s. At that time, he was serving from the company’s head office in Makati as part of the legal team that handled the property acquisition. Later, he was tasked to look over the structure’s renovations and repairs.

It may seem like a stretch for a corporate lawyer to work in the operations and management side of a hotel. After getting a business degree at the University of Santo Tomas in 1985, Atty. Yap pursued a legal career and went straight to law school at Manuel L. Quezon University, before passing the bar exams in 1990. But as he recalls, “You know how children usually dream what they always see? When we were younger, whenever we go to restaurants or hotels and service is given to us superbly and we feel happy about it, you tend to feel like you want to work in those types of service. At that time there wasn’t really much of a ‘hospitality industry’ to be spoken of so I wouldn’t call this my childhood dream. But when our company acquired Bayview, I simply began to love the property.”

The passion to serve people became Yap’s main drivers at work. “In the hospitality industry, we serve our guests and we take care of our employees. In the legal practice, we also take care of our clients and our staff. So, in this aspect, they are really not much different,” he says. He believes that good service can only be provided to hotel guests when the people working behind the scenes are also being valued by their leader, so he strives to give them a good working environment and has even adopted a program called the Managers’ Initiative. Through this program, employees are encouraged to pitch in their suggestions on how they can improve the hotel’s services, amenities, and even marketing efforts, and gives them the platform to explore their ideas. He also puts value in having a work-life balance among his employees and even with himself. “I always set a time limit for work because when you are enjoying the work, you tend to lose track of time and you should never lose time for your family. It is also important for me and my staff to recharge once in a while so we can provide better service to our guests when we return to work.”

When asked to describe his leadership style, “You can say relaxed but still professional. I believe in accountability where each one is responsible for their own actions, but I also believe in learning from others. I am forever a student of the hospitality industry so I try my best to learn from all people.” He constantly keeps a listening ear open for comments and suggestions from every person who walks into the hotel because he believes that “Guests are your best teachers.” He says, “How do I know when I’m doing a good job? When I see guests smiling. When they are satisfied with your service, that guest will keep coming back and keep asking for you. When the guest starts needing you, that means you’re doing something right.”

Not only at Bayview Park Hotel does Mr. Yap apply his mantras of good leadership. He also takes pride in being the president of the Hotel and Restaurant Association of the Philippines (HRAP). As leader to the organization, he aims to leave a mark in the industry through his “leadership by accommodation,” which is founded on understanding, being approachable, and being reasonable. “Just keep on giving the best available service to your guests and don’t forget to give your employees the pat on the back that they deserve. When you start receiving compliments from your guests and loyalty from staff, that’s where success comes in.”

Christmas Drinks from Nitro 7 Just In Time For The Holidays

Malamig ang simoy ng hangin…

That’s what they always say (or sing) as the Christmas season approaches. Everywhere you look, you can see stuff being made to be related to christmas. Even food!

Most of the restaurants or coffee shops I see has specialty menus for the holiday season. And of course one my favorite coffee shops has their own drinks made for this season! And luckily along with other bloggers, I was invited again to taste these drinks.

Nitro 7’s Holiday Drinks: Chocolate Berry Snow, Magical Cherry Mocha, Orange Joy Milk Tea.

Let’s start with the Chocolate Berry Snow. This drink doesn’t have caffeine in it so it’s safe for people who doesn’t like coffee. It’s not too sweet, but the berry and chocolate flavor is balanced. You can taste both components in one sip. I took home one order of this and had let my husband taste it. For someone who doesn’t like sweets, I was surprised that he liked it.

Chocolate Berry Snow

Next one is the Magical Cherry Mocha. This one’s my favorite since I’m a coffee person. The coffee content is not overpowering and it goes smoothly with the chocolate. It tastes sooo good! Just make sure that you mix it first before drinking so that every ingredient will be distributed equally.

Magical Cherry Mocha

Last but not the least is the Orange Joy Milk Tea. This drink has a really unique taste. I just don’t know what base did they use for the tea but you can definitely taste the orange plus the milk. Being a milk tea lover, it doesn’t taste like the usual milk tea thay I drink. That’s why I said it has a unique taste. Maybe I’m just not used to its taste but for sure those who likes trying something new would like it.

We also tried another flavor for the pizza! It also has a unique taste but I liked it. It’s a perfect touch of savory flavor amidst the sweet drinks.

Chicken Barbeque Pizza

Visit Nitro 7 and taste these babies for yourself. 😉

Smile To Go: A U-Belt Student’s Go To Milk Tea Place

As a college student myself, I know that there are 2 drinks that an average college student can’t live without: coffee and milk tea.

I remember when I was still studying in one of the universities in the university belt (the pink school as it’s known to many), I was always on the look out for any coffee shop or milk tea shop that offers a cozy ambiance and affordable drinks for students who want to study outside of school (and home) but has a tight budget.

U-Belt students can now have a go to place for studying while sipping on their favorite milk tea because a branch of Smile To Go has just opened in Legarda. The catch? They are open for 24 hours and they also have free wifi! It’s really a nice place to hang out with friends while studying for tests.

Milk Tea (and other yummy drinks) coming your way!

Warning: If you’re currently craving for milktea, brace yourself. And don’t say that I didn’t warn you. 😉

Oreo Cream Cheese Milk Tea (one of their bestsellers!) with my sleeping baby
Cheesecake and Pearl Milk Tea
Panda Milk Tea
2 Ladies Milk Tea
Milk Tea with Brulee
Super Fresh Fruit Tea
Cheese Cream Mango
Orange Burst

My co-bloggers and I got a chance to taste some of the drinks on the menu and it didn’t disappoint. All the drinks are delicious and unique in their own way.

My favorite, of course, is the Oreo Cheesecake Milk Tea. One sip and I knew why it’s considered one of their best sellers. It’s not too sweet, and not one component is overpowered. The oreo, cream cheese and milk tea blended so well that you can taste all of it at the same time. The other drinks are really good too but Oreo Cheesecake Milktea took my heart away.

As I have said, the ambiance of this shop is so cozy that you can bring your friends here either to study or to just hang out. Another good news is that at the second floor of the shop, there’s a computer shop that serves as haven for student gamers who wants to pass time and destress.

So if you are looking for a place to hangout, study or just to chill in, Smile To Go in Legarda is open 24 hours for everyone!

Smile To Go Legarda is located near Jollibee Mendiola, beside Mang Inasal Mendiola.

How to get there?

From LRT2 Legarda Station, just walk towards where CEU Manila/San Beda University is. When you see Jollibee Mendiola, walk straight to that direction. You’ll see Mang Inasal beside Jollibee and on its other side, Smile To Go. (Hope you understood what I just said here. 😂)

SM Supermalls Steps Up Online Service Via New Pick Up Offering With Airspeed

E-Commerce Players Seen to Benefit Immensely

The tremendous popularity of e-Commerce in the Philippines has prompted more businesses to sell their products online. As more and more online shops enter the market, competition for customers intensifies and sellers should recognize that any small benefit they can provide their buyers could make or break their business.

According to a study by the Department of Trade and Industry and the World Bank, logistics performance plays a vital role as buyers regard reliability, cost and time to be very important factors when shopping online.

The growth of the online shopping market has led to a corresponding rise in demand for logistics services. And Airspeed has heeded the call. As a reputable, efficient, and innovative end to end logistics solutions and express courier company that has been around for more than 30 years, Airspeed has evolved with the times and now offers online merchants innovative logistics services that can help their businesses grow and progress. Airspeed’s door to door and reverse logistics services are particularly beneficial to online merchants.

Just recently, SM Supermalls, the largest mall developer in the country, has partnered with Airspeed to introduce a new fulfillment service called “Pick-up at SM Supermalls”. Pick-up allows buyers to pick up their online purchases at designated SM Supermalls. Pick up is a cost-effective, efficient and convenient service that benefits online sellers and online buyers. Online retailers save cost by using Pick up as additional delivery hubs for their
buyers, they can consolidate orders of their clients delivery addresses to one Pick up location thereby making it more efficient to fulfill online orders and buyers can be assured of a quick and easy process when they use Pick up to procure their orders.

A Pickup transaction works simply and easily. First, a buyer purchases from an online retailer. Second, the seller packs and delivers the order to a Pick up kiosk at an SM Mall. Then the customer counter associate of the pick- up kiosk receives the order and notifies the buyer that the order is ready for pick-up. The customer goes to the selected SM mall to get the order from the pick-up booth.

Online businesses should take advantage and sign up for Pick up. Aside from affordability and accessibility, merchants can also use other Airspeed services such as Door to Door Forwarding to ship their orders to the pick-up booth at SM, and Reverse Logistics to return any failed Pick up orders.

Online merchants that partner with Airspeed and SM through Pickup service will be able to offer their buyers an effective and convenient delivery option. And in the world of online shopping, even a small advantage can make a big difference.


*Pick up booths will open soon in SM Megamall, SM City Fairview, SM North Edsa and SM Southmall and SM City Masinag.

Preemie Diaries Entry#1

I just confirmed an unusual behavior from Luna. I’ve been observing her everyday and it’s only today that I came to a conclusion.

Whenever I’m using my phone, eating, or just busy with something and my head is bowed down, Luna usually peeks from below. As in sinisilip niya ako. Whenever she does that, I smile at her and she smiles back. She is so cute whenever she does it that her cuteness becomes irresistable and I can’t help it. I hug her tight and tickle her. Hehe

Another recent gesture that I’ve observed from her still involves me being busy with my phone while she’s playing with her stuffed toys. After a while, she goes to me and just stares at me. When I ask her “why baby?”, she just goes in between my face and my phone and watches me while I scroll.

She did that again just a while ago and then it hit me. She wants my attention. She wants me to look at her and play with her. I instantly felt guilty for being busy with my phone. (Sorry I’m weak in picking up signals. Huhu) After the realization, I put my phone down, gave her the attention and affection that she needs. Then after a while, I already lied down and she lied down beside me too. She started playing with my shirt and eventually just fell on her back and let out a little cry. I looked at her and saw that she’s already sleepy because I saw her scratching her eyes. I laid her down gently and fixed her sleeping position and she eventually dozed off.

I can’t stop watching her while sleeping. She looks like an angel that God entrusted me to take care of. It feels so good to have her sleep beside me. It makes me think that she feels comfortable and safe whenever she’s near me.

I just feel the need to share this here because some parents may not always pay close attention to their children’s needs and think that giving them material things, such as gadgets playing nursery rhyme videos, are enough to cover up for everything. Also, I didn’t post it here to bash nor to be bashed by other parents. Again, I just want to share this experience of mine.

Parents, it may be good that you’ve been working hard to sustain your child’s/children’s needs, but believe me, they need you beside them too. It will be better for them that you can also give time to their growth and development and not just your financial needs. Yes, it’s difficult to balance both. But please remember to always choose your kids no matter what. They need you more than you know it.
