Dental Day - Just For Sharing

I just thought  of posting this entry here to share with my Blogspot friends…


Yesterday was “dental day” for Gabby and myself. We visited our dentists, mine an ortho, hers a pedia dentist. My dentist happens to be the brother of Gabby’s. We went to their chic clinic in Alabang where we had our bi annual Oral Prophylaxis. Their clinics were adjacent to each other so it was convenient for us to have the treatments done on the same day. The other clinic has just been constructed and it was Gabby’s first time to see it. There is a small play area in one

corner of the reception area. The toys, slide and mats looked new as well. Kids will enjoy spending time there. Mickey Mouse is the overall theme of the clinic. The walls are painted with Mickey Mouse character, he is also on cups, goggles, scrub suits, down to paper clips and ballpen. Gabby didn’t get bored during the whole 30 minute procedure as her eyes roll about around the room, enjoying the scenery.  Pedia Dentist is relatively a new evolution dental practices in the country. Most of us didn’t have this back in our time then. And I am glad we have them now to take good care of our kids dental needs.

Just For Laughs

Just for sharing... from a very good friend who have finally settled down and resigned from a toxic and stressful job to take care of her family. This is a cute poem for hardworking people alike out there! KEEP YOUR SANITY!

Prescription Eye Glasses

I have a friend who loves to wear very stylish eyeglasses. She has a collection of different colors and design, shapes and sizes. She opted to buy less expensive brands yet very chic and elegant and very good quality. Very practical she uses them as accessory, or an accent to top her daily ensemble. It need not be expensive or highly branded as long as it addresses her needs to see clearly and be in fashion. If you are smart like her, you might want to check out Incredible Stylish New Frames From Zenni. They offer high quality frame, anti scratch coating, full UV protection and more value for your money -- from Zenni Optical $ 8 Rx Eyeglasses to $ 30.00, you can have prescription eyeglasses service by merely inputting the needed data on an online form to calculate the right and correct eye grade for you. Voila! Prescription glasses delivered right to your doorstep. Very affordable because they manufacture their own frames and sell it directly to customers. Deal or Dud? Check out for yourself, Zenni Optical was on FOX news!

Every parent and school must have known Eric Carle through his wonderful children’s books! His number 1 work of art in 1969 – “The Very Hungry Caterpillar” is the most popular book he has written. Very colorful and artistically written and created, every child is drawn to it!  This book has been translated to more than 45 languages and over 25 million copies sold.

His art work is created in collage technique, using hand-painted papers which he cuts and layers to form bright and cheerful images. As an added dimension, many of his books also has die-cut pages giving them a playful quality – a toy that can be read, a book that can be touched. The themes of his stories are usually drawn from his knowledge and love of nature, which is also shared by most small children. His books also offer the child the opportunity to learn something about the world around them. Learning, stimulating, creative and fun experiences for very young children. 

“The Very Hungry Caterpillar” is one of Gabby’s favorites. The story not only follows the very hungry caterpillar as it grows from egg to cocoon to beautiful butterfly, but also teaches the days of the week, counting, good nutrition and more. Very interactive fun! Some of Gabby’s collection of his works include “Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?” , “Pancakes, Pancakes”, “The Tiny Seed”, “Do Kangaroos Have Mothers Too?” and “From Head To Toe”. Each month, I bring her to a bookstore and let her choose a book that we will read for D.E.A.R. (it’s our Drop Everything And Read day!). It’s smart to surround them with books to read!

Who Told You To Do It?

I have been swamped with work for the past weeks. I have taken on a new position as General Manager of one of the companies under a Holdings group wholly owned by Filipinos. Concurrently, I am also handling Lifeline Foundation’s Parental Assistance Program which is being supported by this company. So there! I got so engrossed in the daily grind I found myself losing out on the context of my life somehow. Why am I here? What am I doing? Who am I doing it for? And WHO told me to do it? 

God gave my life a meaning, a purpose. I have then learned to  align my way of life with this purpose. Our vision to build schools, libraries, livelihood projects, fishery, environmentally-friendly facilities, etc. –ALL for empowering lives of people. Changing one life at a time! Somewhere in the middle of things in the past weeks at work, I have forgotten about Him when my WORK is suppose to be my WORSHIP as well. I  can’t compartmentalize my life –I only have ONE LIFE. Remembering I am a PACKAGE DEAL – mind, body, heart and spirit ALL IN ONE. Yes Father, I am setting my mind and keeping it set on what is above (the higher things), not on the things that are on earth. I am keeping my heads up so I can only see YOU. Getting rid of all the stinky rubbish, rising up to the flak. I put my hands to the plow, moving forward and not losing sight of who I am in YOU.

Thank you Father!

Arts Workshops

IMAGINATION STATION is the newest project of Lifeline Daycare Centre. It aims to provide a venue for children and teens age 3 to 15 year olds to learn, explore and develop their skills in various aspects. Art, science, music, crafts, writing, photography, sports, etc, anything that you can imagine your child can do! In collaboration with professionals, teachers, students, artists, musicians, moms and dads and people who care – the concept was born.

The courses are guaranteed very affordable. Reaching out to the community, the Foundation is now accepting enrollees and will start classes in “ART FOCUS” course on September 13th, Saturday 8:30am through 11am. It will run for a month with specific 8-session modules designed per age group.
