Make brushing more fun with Minions!

If it were not for my parents’ diligence in bringing us to dental appointments and cleaning regularly, my sister and I would probably have a bad set of teeth. And so we do this now to our daughter, who, not like me, didn’t like brushing as a little girl. But when the tooth fairy teeth… Continue reading Make brushing more fun with Minions!

Bert Lozada Swim School: Trusted name in swimming lessons

I love water, but swimming doesn’t love me! Hmmm, did I say it right? I love being in a pool, I can be on it especially when it’s summertime (for as long as it’s no more than four feet deep). I had several attempts in learning how to swim, but to no avail. Well, a little perhaps.… Continue reading Bert Lozada Swim School: Trusted name in swimming lessons

Consummatum est: Weaned from the breast

I really cannot think of any good title for this post. I just had to post this anyway: Aria is FULLY WEANED from the breast. From MY breasts, which nourished her with my own milk from Day One. No more breastfeeding, no more asking for “dede” to be able to sleep. Not even for comfort. Not… Continue reading Consummatum est: Weaned from the breast

Touringkitty Cooks: Dump-it-all Tuna Mushroom Pasta

Cooking at home takes up most of my mornings (or evenings). I usually spend 95% of my kitchen time in preparing the food, then 5% goes to the actual eating. But with my often busy schedule, I would rather rely on eating out, taking home food, or food delivery. Less effort, but often with more cost. What to… Continue reading Touringkitty Cooks: Dump-it-all Tuna Mushroom Pasta

A snore-free marriage is a happy marriage

So you vowed to honor and cherish him in sickness and in health, for richer for poorer, till death do you part.  But have you factored in sleepless nights because he snores like a jumbo jet? Some wives (and husbands) have not.  So what started out as a fairy tale ended as a nightmare. In China, a 30-year-old woman divorced… Continue reading A snore-free marriage is a happy marriage

Touringkitty Eats: Counting Calories with The Good Box

I have always wondered about food boxes. One, I wondered if their food is delicious and two, I wondered if it really works. I seriously gained weight when I started eating healthier. If you follow me on Instagram (please follow @touringkitty) you’d notice my posts on #healthyeating and all I’ve been experimenting on my small… Continue reading Touringkitty Eats: Counting Calories with The Good Box

On post-pregnancy bodies and shopping

Shopping attempt yesterday: BIG FAIL! Haha I know it was Fathers Day but my hubby wanted to buy me clothes cos my closet’s screaming for a makeover (imagine all my clothes had to be breastfeeding-friendly–e.g. Tank tops, v-necks or deep necks, boleros, shawls and we have not weaned just yet!). So off I went for… Continue reading On post-pregnancy bodies and shopping

Of toddlers and (very long) naps

Ever since her waking world began, Aria has sleeping issues. No, make that, ever since in utero, Aria had sleeping issues — when she used to rock my whole body in the middle of the morning with her strong kicks and punches. In the past two years, you could only count the times she slept… Continue reading Of toddlers and (very long) naps

Life’s firsts

A TMI post, I know. But please bear with this first-time mommy who didn’t expect this to happen just as when they’re preparing for a family vacation. First word, first tooth, first solid food. As moms we anticipate those. I can’t believe there will be a first hospitalization for my little big girl. On Labor… Continue reading Life’s firsts
