Age and Fertility

A woman is said to be in her prime when it comes to fertility during her twenties. Each woman has a specific number of eggs that are released each month during her menstrual period. Her body also releases good quality eggs first. This is why most women can get pregnant in their twenties without much trouble. However, as the woman gets older, her fertility starts to decline. This is the main reason why older women are having difficulty trying to conceive. Aside from that, the baby is more prone to chromosome abnormalities with women pregnant at an older age.

Some women, especially celebrities, want to fulfill their goals and have a good career first before getting pregnant so they choose to have their eggs frozen so they have great quality eggs when they decide to get pregnant. This doesn’t mean that woman in her older age can no longer get pregnant, it is still possible. It’s just that a woman’s chance to get pregnant naturally decreases compared to younger women. says that women over the age of 35 who are trying to get pregnant for more than 6 months with no success may seek help from their doctor.

I was 23 when I got pregnant with my first born and after six years my second pregnancy came and both of those pregnancies were smooth and easy with the help of my Obstetrician.

My Miniloc Island- El Nido, Palawan getaway!

More than a couple of months now since we had the most amazing summer getaway in years. We packed our bags for a 3D2N stay at Miniloc Island in El Nido, Palawan and everything was for FREE! It was a prize that I have won from Shop Ayala Malls shopping raffle from last year 2013 and after several months of waiting and booking we made it to summer. 
It was our first time to travel and my first time to fly and board an airplane. This blog post will be about photos os our journey to the island where everything is green and serene. 
Enjoy browsing! 

Will be posting more photos as I gather some of it. Thank you Shop Ayala Malls for the amazing summer getaway.

My brandnew Samsung Digital Inverter Top Freezer

Last weekend blessing poured in once again, after months of planning and trying to save up to buy a new refrigerator... our plans came to reality. We had enough money to buy a new fridge since the item we are trying to sell was sold that day and came up with enough to buy this.

Samsung 8.3 cu.ft Digital Inverter Top Freezer Refrigerator.

Cooling Feature

  • No Frost
  • Multi Flow available
  • Refrigerator Feature

    • 1 Chill Compartment
    • Shelves x 2ea (1ea Slide out)
    • Glass of Shelves
    • Number of Vegetable&Fruit Drawer: 1ea
    • Spill-Proof Shelves x 1ea
    • Door Pocket x 4ea
    • Type of Door Pocket: Transparent
    • Egg Container available
    • LED Interior Light
    • Deodorizer available
    • 1 MoistFresh Zone with Vegetable Box
We got this unit at Abenson's Harbor Point Mall with an original price of P20,999. 

After unboxing the unit we plugged it in for an hour and observed that the body was expelling heat, not the usual temperature I know from our old fridge. 
According to the service center, that is normal with the no-frost fridge. The condenser we use to see at the back of the fridge is now coiled within the body of the unit, thus unfamiliar heat temperature can be felt. 
Samy as my daughter calls it has been running for two days now and I have noticed that the thermostat is already working. 
I am quite happy with the unit and model we got though I wanted the more bigger one that can occupy the whole kitchen area haha! 

How about you? What is your latest appliance haul for the house?

Thank You Lotte Xylitol Wish Upon A Smile Promo

Late November of 2013 I came across a blog post wherein she reviewed some gum with Xylitol from Lotte. I saw this brand in the candy section of SM supermarket but never had the chance to buy it. In the blog post she mentioned there about the promo Lotte will be holding over at their Facebook page. It is a photo contest of Mommy and kid in it showing their best smile and Mommy or Dad can wish for a gift for his or her kid this Christmas. Wishing of gifts depends upon the weekly theme posted. 

Since day1 I started posting our photo with the best smile and gift wish i had for my daughter. Luckily, I won the first week consolation prize and this was sent to me as my prize. 
Tubes and packs of assorted flavors of Lotte Xylitol gums plus P500 ($12) gift certificate. 

It wasn't just me who was happy about the prize but my kids too! I was able to use the GC to buy some items in the grocery last Christmas season. Lotte Xylitol really made us SMILE! :D
Thank you!

Regent Mochi - Japanese Style Glutinous Rice Cakes

I have been so curious about this product since the first time I saw it on one of my FB friend's timeline. I was able to buy a couple of bags from the grocery shopping at SM Supermarket. 

A bag of Regent Mochi assorted and one bag of Ube flavored Mochi.

This one is from the assorted bag which contains 10 pieces of this single mochi in different flavors. This one is buko pandan flavor. 
The inside of the mochi has this sweet bean paste just enough to taste it. Each bag of assorted mochi sells for P57.50 and the Ube mochi which comes in 6pieces per bag cost at P67.00.
My kids loves the flavor of the white and pineapple mochi, i'd go for the ube mochi.

Mochi resembles the taste and texture of the Chinese butchi which you can order in every Chinese deli. For the price, it is a little expensive compared to the freshly cooked butchi but readily available if you crave for the same taste. 

Will I buy next time? Yep, for the taste and how  convenient the packaging plus the kids liked it. 
Have you tried this product? Your verdict?
