Since Gwen is fond of watching YouTube videos about toys, she’s familiar with all kinds of toys especially the ones reviewed by Disney Collector and DCTC. Thankfully, she’s not asking us to buy each of them, she just likes watching them. One thing she likes watching over and over are those surprise eggs videos showing the toys inside. We went crazy buying those Kinder Surprise last year but got tired of it because the toys are the same.

Oh, and I bought her a Peppa Pig Surprise Egg once from an Instagram seller, it’s so expensive and we’re not satisfied with the contents. I’ll blog about that. How expensive? Well, surprise eggs sellers on Instagram post them at Php 150 each, geez.
But guess what? There’s local distributor of surprise eggs here in the Philippines, at last! Coz I found Disney Princess, Disney Cars, and Adventure Time surprise eggs in Hi-top Supermarket, yes, #ilovehitop, hahaha. You’ll love it even more because they sell the surprise eggs for only Php 34.75!!! So say goodbye to your IG sellers and check out your grocery store aisles.
I bought the three kinds: Disney Princess, Disney Cars, and Adventure Time. Now time see what’s inside an egg surprise.
Just like last year, Maynilad has scheduled water service interruptions this Holy Week 2015 in parts of Pasay, Las Piñas, Parañaque and Cavite.
Maynilad is realigning its seven-foot-tall water pipeline along Juan Luna St. and Hermosa St. in Manila to give way to the flood interceptor project of the Department of Public Works and Highways.
This pipe realignment will involve exposing, dewatering, realigning and energizing the seven-foot-tall water pipeline, which will take 72 hours to complete. As a result, water supply interruptions will be felt in southern portions of our concession area from March 31 (Holy Tuesday) to April 3 (Good Friday).
Below is the water service interruption schedule for the affected areas.

Did you enjoy my sale finds at Hi-Top last time? I went earlier to buy some snacks and saw some interesting items at their sale corner. I took a few pics in case you’d drop by this weekend.
Reese’s Nut Bar, B1T1 Php 34.75
I always hear about Dapitan Arcade whenever topics about house decors are mentioned… “Marami sa Dapitan nyan…”. We always frequent Banawe and I know isang tumbling na lang, Dapitan na, but I don’t have any reason to go there yet.
Then yesterday, Jeff had to go to a shop in Apo Street. Kung yung Banawe, isang tumbling, yung Apo Street, isang pitik na lang Kanlaon Street na which is the street where Dapitan Arcade is located. So even if I don’t have anything to buy, I asked if we can go here first.
Dapitan Arcade in Kanlaon Street
February has the least number of days, hence I didn’t notice that it’s already March. (Edit: This is just an excuse, truth is, let me ask for an apology for the lack of updates :p). Anyway, February has some important activities for my toddler, Gwen, so I’m sharing it to you.
For 2 consecutive years now, Ate Rose always helps Gwen in making V-day cards. Si Ate Rose talaga ang nag-iinitiate nyan. They don’t do art activities in school that’s why I’m glad that Ate Rose is creative to help Gwen practice her creativity.

When I attended the Mustela Philippines event last year, they were so generous with the Mustela products they gave to the bloggers. Mustela is one of our fave products so we used some of the loots right away. I intentionally kept the Stretch Marks Care Oil since I plan to give this to my BFF, Trixie, who is expecting her 3rd baby :). So when we met during her 2nd month of pregnancy, I gave the Mustela Bebe Stretch Marks Care Oil and asked her to see the results.
I work near Hi-Top Supermart in Quezon Ave., isang tumbling lang. I love doing my grocery here because they have the cheapest prices, mas mura pa kesa Puregold. There are items na 10 pesos cheaper sa Hi-Top. Ang pinaka-inaabangan ko talaga dyan eh yung mga sale items nila, I always check out the chocolates section for 50% off chocolates :p. And then upon entering the turnstile entrance, andun na yung mga sale items (near expiry or promotional) which varies everyday, depends on the stocks. So let me show you my sulit sale finds when we had our grocery last week. Some of the items might not be available anymore ha…. baka ubos na.
Franzia red wine 3L, 30% off. Papa is a wine drinker, yan na lang ang panglambing ko sa kanya. Original price is Php 588+ but with the discount, I saved 200 pesos. May iba pang flavors when I bought a few days ago, California Red and Sunset Blush. Yesterday, Sunset Blush na lang ang nakita ko, not sure if they will restock.
A friend asked me what are the things to prepare while she’s pregnant aside from shopping things for the baby and her monthly check-up. At first, I can’t remember other important things to do other than thinking of baby’s name but then it occurred to me the most important thing. You have to notify SSS of your pregnancy as soon as you become pregnant.
In the Kitchen will be the category where I will post some of the recipes I cook for my family. I promise you these are super-duper easy recipes because I’m really not an expert in the kitchen plus the fact that I don’t want recipes with so many steps/how-tos. Just 4-6 instructions, anything more than that, I skip the page of my recipe book and look for simpler recipes. So newbies in the kitchen, I hope you’ll try my recipes or suggestions and let’s share kitchen secrets!
Just last week, I received a package containing Nestle All Purpose Cream thru Nuffnang Philippines with some ingredients for a pasta dish. It looks like the package arrived a bit late because it’s supposed to be something for the Christmas festivities. But with a print-out of a pasta recipe***, an EVOO, a box of penne pasta, and Nestle All Purpose Cream, I figured I can whip up a feast anytime! Hence, our #OUFT, or “Our Ulam for Tonight”! Not exactly an “ulam” but I just want to use the hashtag :p.
We were at Trinoma last Thursday for some errands and Gwen was with us. We have a lot of things to do in our errands list that’s why we looked for a play area for her. We went to Trinoma’s 3rd Level and saw one play area in front of Mothercare (forgot the name). But we saw that it’s almost full, then we saw Gymboree, at first, I thought that it’s only for members with classes, turns out that they also accept non-members to enjoy their Gym Play. I inquired about the rates and the staff said that for non-members, Gym Play rate is Php 380 per hour, but they have an on going promo which is additional 1 hour, so our Php 380 will be 2 hours!
Here’s the existing Gymplay rates at Gymboree Trinoma:
