Download iWant TV app for Free

Other than Facebook, Facebook Messenger, Youtube, this is one of my favorite apps – the iWant TV. Yes, I am a true blooded ABS-CBN fanatic! Every teleserye of the Kapamilya network is worth-watching. Guess what, I can even stand without the existence of the other TV networks as long as ABS-CBN is visible in my TV screen. But, my timeframe of watching some of my favorite TV shows is quite limited. So, when I decided to download the iWant TV app, I got the chance to watch all ABS-CBN’s shows even not in real time. But they also have live streaming if you want to be very updated.

i-download

In iWant TV, even past shows can be watched, it is like reading back issues of your fave magazines. When you use the ABS-CBN mobile sim and download this iWant TV app, you can watch whatever show you want under the Kapamilya network and its sister stations. And all the past shows even from way back is available for viewing. Unlike, if you don’t use the ABS-CBN mobile sim and only use other broadband internet provider, your access to the app is very limited.

So, if you want to fully enjoy the app, insert the ABS-CBN mobile sim on your android phone then download iWant TV app for free. I assure you, if you also love ABS-CBN shows, you will also love iWant TV app.

Get Wet ‘N Wild Under The Summer Sun

At first sight in the morning, glittering rays from the sun wake us up. Warm breeze entails that summer is fast approaching. Ah, how wonderful it is to spend summer. Mingling with family and friends at beach and pool parties is the usual scenario during this most anticipated season of the year. Of course, you should look good even when soaked from sweat or burnt from sunrays.

Before having that awesome splash on the very inviting water, dress up and strut yourself through the crowd. Search from your closet the best summer dress that you have. Get your fashionable sunglasses. Perhaps cover your head with bold colorful native hat. Apply on your delicate skin sun block lotion and put on moisturizer on your sensitive face. And we’re done! Oh wait! One more thing, if you want to look glamorous even when under the raging sun is to put on your makeup.

During daytime, apply light shade of makeup thus not affecting your natural look. I love light earth-toned makeup for daytime events. And at night events, I still prefer a little bolder shade of earth-toned makeup, for me not to look dull. Actually with my very busy schedule as a full-time employee and full-time mom, I usually visit online shops for new makeup collection. And good thing that wet n wild makeup is available at Zalora Philippines. Now, you can choose whatever shade of eyeshadow, lipstick, lip gloss you want in just few clicks.

Got Our Couple’s Shirts From Gerry’s Grill

February 14, 2015. Gerry’s Grill, Magsaysay Avenue, Naga City. Our family dine out to celebrate Valentine’s Day. And Gerry’s Grill once again satisfied my taste buds. Although Gerry’s kept us waiting for almost an hour (an acceptable inconvenience during Heart’s day), we really had sumptuous meals that night. Before we leave, one of the staff approached us and gave us couples’ shirts. My husband and I were not used to wearing couple’s shirts, though we also appreciate others who wear one to show how strong their bond is even on shirts.

Couple’s Shirts from Gerry’s Grill

Gerry’s Grill shirts have their signature Shark design and for this Valentine, the Shark is placed inside the heart. The color of the shirt is black contradicting the usual color red of heart’s day. This is maybe because, Gerry’s Grill usually have their crews and staff wear black for distinction. Upon seeing the shark on our shirts, our son also wants to have one for him. ;)

This year’s Valentine’s day is really a day to remember because we had our very first couple’s shirts and we got it from Gerry’s Grill. Thank you Gerry’s!!!

Must-Try: Yummy Cake from Cake My Day

Looking for a delicious cake for any of your occasions? You have to try Cake my Day’s cakes. Actually, I tasted their cakes before when they were still on their previous store location. And I can say that, their cakes are one of the finest cakes here in Naga City. 

Now that they have an outlet in SM City Naga, it is easier for me to buy cakes and cupcakes from them. During my son’s birthday, I purchased a mocha cake from them. And it is so delicious, the sweetness of it is just right for my taste buds. I hate it when after eating a cake, my throat will be sore, which is not true for Cake My Day’s cake.

This is what we bought, a mini mocha cake which only cost Php. 310.00. Isn’t it affordable? The size of it is quite bigger than of the others so that’s what I chose.

Visit their SM City Naga outlet and taste their yummy cakes to satisfy your cravings. By the way, I am not affiliated with Cake my Day, I am just a one happy customer who loves their cake so much. :)

She must prepare the day for her family; fixing their meals, grooming her kids and arranging the mess in the house before going to work. And when it comes to her workplace, she have to give extra effort to finish whatever work that is laid for the day thus impressing her boss to feel that she will not lose her job to end her career days. At the end of the day, all women is asking to lay in soft, clean bed and relax her whole body which after a day’s work is filled with clamoring tired muscles.

Must-Try: Orient Sunset Finest Tea

What do you like coffee or tea? One of the most common introductory dialog whenever a visitor pays you a visit. Of course, if you offer those, you should have those. Since I am not a coffee-lover or should I say my body resists coffee because I suffer palpitation because of it, so I am bound to love TEA.

 There are many health benefits from tea. Here are some:

  1. Tea has less caffeine – As compared to coffee, which I said earlier that is causing my heart’s palpitation, tea has less caffeine content. Coffee has two to three times more caffeine that tea.
  2. Tea is a good antioxidant – Tea is considered to be a very good antioxidant that will somehow prevent our body from aging.
  3. Tea strengthens the bones – Like milk, tea-drinkers for 10 years or more are said to have stronger bones because of the phytochemicals content. So to those who hate drinking milk, better drink tea to strengthen your bones.
  4. Tea may reduce the risk of heart attack and stroke – Tea unclog arteries from cholesterol which causes heart attack and stroke to human.
  5. Tea can help prevent cancer – Because of its antioxidant and polyphenols content, tea according to studies is said to help prevent the production of cancer cells in the body.
  6. Tea prevents tooth decay – Tea contains fluoride and tannins that can make teeth and gums healthier.
  7. Tea boosts immune system – Drinking tea revitalizes my immune system, whenever I have colds, tea really aids in making me well again.
  8. Tea is free from calories – Unlike other beverages, tea is calorie-free. Drinking coffee for some requires more sugar content that increases calories and softdrinks have high calorie-content. 

 When our sister with her family who are from The Netherlands visited us again here in the Philippines, they now know what to give us. They brought us set of teas of different flavors, the Orient Sunset Finest Tea. At first, we did not know what is inside that wooden miniature cabinet.

 

And when we opened the first drawer, to our surprise, we saw tea bags in it. We were very much delighted when we saw six (6) assorted flavored teas. Orient Sunset Finest Tea has: 1. Citroen (Lemon Flavour), 2. Aardbei (Strawberry Flavour) 3. Passievrucht (Passion Fruit Flavour), 4. Groene Thee (Green Tea), 5. Tropische Vruchten (Tropical Fruit Flavour), 6. Rooibos (Brew as tea).

Orient Sunset Finest Tea

 You can smell the flavor of the tea even before it is opened and used. So, when we dipped it in a cup of hot water, the very inviting aroma of tea filled our house. So refreshing and so relaxing to smell and drink.

 They also gave us two cute mugs that we can use whenever we are savoring the aroma of these flavored-teas. It is so much fun sipping a cup of tea while having an exciting conversation with your loved ones. 

Create a tea-party of your own, it shouldn’t have to be extravagant, two to three guests with a cup of tea on their hands is already perfect.

Children Love Beautiful House

Growing up, children should be more comfortable while inside the house to prevent them from staying the whole day or worst staying out late in the night. Aside from the very fact that parents should be responsible in bringing the best environment for them, a livable and cozy place to live in is one important thing to consider.

Yes, it is true, children who loves their house, loves to spend their day in it. Away from the danger that they might encounter if they are roaming outside. So parents should maintain the love that flourish inside the home. If possible, it is best, if they can provide a beautiful and clean habitat for them.

What makes a house beautiful? Of course, the furniture, appliances and the likes add to the beauty of a house. Rooms must be kept clean and elegant. The children’s bedroom should also put into utmost consideration because it is the place where they end and start their day. Decorative items for kids can help to achieve a child-friendly room. Child curtains with colorful cartoon character designs attract good vibes for children.

Some put pastel-colored curtains to make the room more ventilated.

Parents out there, better make your house a nice place to live in, for you to spend more wonderful days with your children.

Kids’ Corner: Helping Kids Conquer Stage Fright

December 18, 2014, Naga City, Camarines Sur, Philippines. Colorful, amazing costumes were displayed during the parade of cute little kids and teeners as part of Minds that Matter’s 10th Year Celebration. Of course, we dressed up our chubby cutie Dominic as Russell in the Disney movie Up, which some say, he really nailed the character. See his cute picture below (pardon my bragging for I am his proud mom..chuckles)..

Dominic as Russell

Do you know what makes us again really proud of our son and his school? It is that sense of acceptance, that whatever your child looks like, how good or not he acts, dances, sings on stage, do not matter. Minds that Matter let their every student perform, they let each student shine, that is the most important. Just to stand in front of the crowd needs a lot of confidence. So, hurray to all the students for a job well done. And to all the teachers who gave their best performance for the said event.

I have nothing against with other school, it’s just that I am proud of what our son becomes in the short span of almost 2 years in Minds that Matter. He gains confidence, conquers stage fright and learns how to deal with his co-performers with courtesy.

Up on stage

Even in out of school events like parties and the like, we don’t have to force Dominic to join in games. Just recently he made an impromptu performance with a mob of dancers from SM City Naga. We were so happy to see him danced with great dancers of SM City Naga.

We are thankful to Minds for giving proper and balanced education to our son. Happy 10th year Minds that Matter! May you have more successful years to come. ;)
