Save Money As Early as Now, UCPB's Start2Save Junior Savings Account!


In today's generation, kids are exposed to things that are easy to reach. From technology and information to the most general things in life. Those things can be a great impact on their stage of growing-up. Working parent like me can do so much to protect and guide them as much as we possibly can. 

Education is our primary goal that we need to provide, for our children to be competitive and can face the world as they venture out- we need to secure their future with a good education. 

Along with providing a quality and good education, we need to teach the children of today the value of money by introducing them on saving every peso they have and placing it on the bank. 

I must admit when I was young I was so careless with money, and saving money is not my goal...not until I reach adulthood and more specifically when I had my kids. True enough that money can be your passport to anywhere and everywhere. Nowadays, money can be hard to earn. It will take a lot of your energy, time and resources just to earn a single peso that is why when you have  an extra keep and save it...a single peso will go along way when you save up. 

That is why I introduced my daughter to UCPB's Start2Save Junior Savings Account and we opened up an account a week ago. 

I chose this bank because of the proximity to my work place and also it is our payroll bank and upon check on their website the Start2Save requirements are very easy to provide unlike to some other banks we inquired before. And, at the same time now that my daughter will become a teenager this year she now understand the concept of having an ATM card and a passbook. Want to know the details on opening an account with UCPB? Check the details below:

UCPB Start2Save Junior Savings Account

The savings account comes with an ATM card and a passbook, so that the account holder can monitor their savings and transaction. 

The account is open for 0-19 years old to submit; 
  • One valid ID.
  • For 0-6 years old, bring one valid ID of parent or guardian.
  • Copy of birth certificate
  • 1x1 ID picture
  • Initial deposit of P100.
The minimum balance to earn interest is P1,000.

Upon opening the account last week, the passbook with our initial deposit was given to us and we waited for a week for the ATM card to be release. Today I picked-up the card along with the initial PIN which my daughter needed to change in the machine next time. 

When my daughter arrived from school I hand-over her the ATM card and the passbook and the excitement was seen on her face. And, I told her will go to the nearest machine next time for her to change the PIN, and instructed her more on what to do. 

This will be her step on saving money wisely and effectively, along with her mini piggy banks and coin banks she have in her closet. :) 

Wise Mom to a more wiser daughter.

Feature: PYREX SlowCook 3.6L Casserole

A single pot is not enough to use when you are in the kitchen, you need different sizes of pots and pans to go through your time cooking. I love making meals at home, i do consider it as my relaxation and a way to enhance my creative side. And, of course I love to eat...I guess that's the main reason? Some other reasons would be; 
  • prepared meals at home are budget-saving.
  • nutritious, healthy and clean food.
  • cook for additional meals for the next day, you can enjoy another serving.
  • teach children to appreciate the variety of taste, texture and smell
  • a family bonding.

Every time I watch any cooking show, the kitchen are set-up nicely, with  all the kitchen tools and gadgets that are available in reach. My eyes are always glued on the pots and pans they use and of course wishing to have those someday. 

The complexities and necessities of every kitchen tool or gadget depends on how you will need them. Basic pots and pans can do wonders...but what if one brand can offer more than the basic, of course I would love to have it. Filling-up your kitchen with pots and pans can drain up your wallet as it is not a joke when it comes to pricing. It can be an investment too when you decide to get the quality and branded ones.

Here is my newest collection in the kitchen.
PYREX SlowCook 3.6L Casserole, the striking color of bright red will definitely illuminate in my kitchen. 
From the famous and trusted brand PYREX which I know most of you know. I have known this brand since I started to appreciate cooking. 



It has a stainless steel knob for oven use, easy-grip, self-basting effect and has an enamelled base.

The casserole is heavy because of the cast iron material and it has a round shape with 24 cm in diameter with 3.6 liter capacity. Two easy-grip handles with ridges for more effective handling. You need to use pot holders when using the casserole as all materials are iron cast. 

Pyrex SlowCook casseroleare dishwasher safe, vitro ceramic can be use inside the oven at 280°, over gas stove, electric, halogen and induction cooking.

So, as excited as a kid in having a new toy I tested the casserole. I made ginger creamy chicken for dinner. 

Browned and sauteed garlic, onion and ginger in low heat but it create added heat because of the material of the casserole. One part I am happy about is I am going to save gas every time this is in use.

Placed the cut up chicken and cover the casserole with the lid, without opening it for 30 minutes in medium heat it reached the desired temperature for the chicken meat to become tender. Added cream and other spices to add taste and the dish was ready for a total of 45 minutes including the preparation.

One whole chicken cut-ups with cream filled-up one third of the casserole. I turned off the heat leaving the pot still simmering to thicken the cream, the good thing about iron cast cooking. 

Using a sponge with a dishwashing liquid those crusting in the sides of the casserole was easily removed. It did not leave any marking or stain at all, it was quite impressive! I will surely enjoy preparing meals using this casserole and expect photos of it in every photos I will be posting. 

The only I had a hard time dealing with the pan was the weight, it is really heavy and lifting it will needs effort to do so. But the over all experience and use was satisfying. 

You can check this Pyrex SlowCook Casserole over their website Pyrex.com for reference or purchase it for $128 US.

Happy cooking and happy long weekend!

Choose What Games You Play Online!

As a working Mom, there are times that I get exhausted mentally and physically.   24/7 of your time requires you to do your responsibilities at home and at work and a little diversion is needed.

The typical Mommy's physical presence are normally needed in the household, I can find something what I like and love to do online. It won't let me leave the house which can cost me less of the gasoline expense and at the same time I can manage home and the kids too.

There are lots of online games you can search in the web and it all caters to your interest and liking. To you time availability and as well as skills. I don't believe that online games are only for kids, specially in the modern age we are in now. Everything is all accessible to can be reach in a push of a button. 

Since, I used to play bingo with my cousins and relatives during summer breaks when we were young and finding out that there's an online site for bingo games I totally am up for it. I like playing bingo because it is easy to play and also it let's you practice your focus and concentration. 

From a typical roulette with numbered buttons and slotted bingo cards everything now got level-up by means of playing bingo.
Boomtownbingo, an online company that provides Internet bingo sites and the transactions are secured. This was introduced to me by a friend who loves to play bingo too. The site offers a wide array of game features and of course the basic ones that I do like to play. 
They have popular brands of bingo that are being ranked and rated by users worldwide. And, what I like about this site even more is the mode of payment, they accepts Paypal for payment! And, they offer great bonus and huge jackpot prizes. 

When playing online we need to make sure our payments and winnings will be secured...well we don't want to lose a penny from all the hundreds of untrusted sites out there, make your money safe and secured and enjoy playing bingo!

How does Marian Rivera make Garantisadong Ginisarap dishes?


Marian Rivera-Dantes is used to playing different characters: Primetime Queen, recording artist, brand ambassador, style icon, and philanthropist. But her favorite roles by far have been those behind the camera: as wife to Dingdong and mom to Baby Zia.

As a modern homemaker, who manages her time between work and family, Marian has found comfort in cooking as one of the best ways to make her family feel loved and to improve her culinary skills. On her social media pages, the Kapuso actress has posted some of her own culinary creations that range from baby food for little Zia, stews, soups, and veggies. And on days when Marian is short on time, stir-fry dishes have become her go-to choices for easy, yummy meals.

Topping her stir-fry list are Chopsuey and Fried Rice made with AJI-GINISA® Flavor Seasoning Mix, as seen in the seasoning’s two new TVCs which began airing last June 4, 2017. In both versions, Marian dances and sings to the tune of her hit song, “Sabay-sabay Tayo,’ while she adds AJI-GINISA® to each dish to make them more delicious and “Garantisadong Ginisarap.”

Like Marian, you can also whip up “Garantisadong Ginisarap” dishes – even non-vegetable ones – by adding a touch of AJI-GINISA® to your favorite stir-fry recipes.

Head of the family: not just a provider but a father



Imagine working in a world where time seems to just past by and where almost everything changes instantly. Think of having to keep up with an environment where it costs a lot to stop or even slow down for a while. Sound taxing, right? What more of prioritizing the welfare of everybody in the household on top of it all. 

But every head of the family doesn’t mind about it. Fathers are said to be the pillars of our homes. They toil sun up to sun down to give our needs and desires.

Some of them go abroad with tears in their eyes because they will be physically separated from their families. However, there is a certain joy in their hearts knowing that they will be able to provide for their loved ones back home.

To honor these gallant paternal men and let them feel how extraordinary they are and important their sacrifices are for their families, Father’s Day has been a yearly universal event. As we mark again this special occasion on Sunday, June 18, 2017, our applause and recognition will never be enough to show them how grateful we are to have them in our lives. 

Our dads, together with our moms, take good care of us the moment we’re born. They are the ones who provide everything we need for our everyday lives. From infancy up to adulthood, they feed and clothe us. 

As we take our initial baby steps, our patriarchs guide and lead us in the right direction. When we stumble and fall, they assist us to rise and move on. In times of danger or any threat, they shield us from any harm.

All of these, they do out of unconditional love. Their selflessness, though, has its own toll. Working tirelessly could lead to high levels of stress constantly and problems not only mentally, but physically, too. So better watch out for the signs. 

Has tatay been constantly complaining about losing strands and strands of his hair every day? Or maybe has he been searching for a way on how to get them to grow back?

According to the hair loss statistics conducted by Statistic Brain in the year 2016, 40 percent of men experience noticeable mane vanishing as early as age 35. And as per the American Hair Loss Association, there are a couple of different factors that cause excessive hair fall, one being extreme degree of stress.

Nutramedica Inc. introduced a revolutionary product that aims to address this problem: NOVUHAIR, nature’s answer to hair loss. Being the only topical scalp lotion in the country that is made from 19 natural herbs, essential oils and co-factor nutrients all working synergistically, it’s perfect for all the heads of the family out there, be they biological or not.

NOVUHAIR is proven effective and safe to help prevent and stop the progression of hair loss and, at the same time, help promote locks’ growth. Simply spray a liberal amount of NOVUHAIR topical scalp lotion onto the scalp and massage for 5-10 minutes. Voila, it penetrates deeply into the roots, which helps rejuvenate, nourish and maintain the natural moisture of the hair. 

Still have no idea on what to give him on his big day? Well, NOVUHAIR might not be the most expensive gift to impress him, but the most valuable present he could ever have. This nature’s answer to hair loss provides him the chance to be ahead already in preventing his “crowning glory” from receding in the near future. 

So, head on to all leading stores nationwide and get a dose of this breakthrough product. NOVUHAIR is also available in shampoo and conditioner formats to further complement the benefits of NOVUHAIR topical scalp lotion. NOVUHAIR is available at Mercury Drug and other leading drugstores nationwide. You may also order NOVUHAIR online at www.lazada.com.ph. For inquiries, you may call 413-6570 or 0922-8830575, and visit www.novuhair.com.
