Young Mindz and Tahanang Walang Hagdanan Wooden Toys

The last time I purchased something from Lazada was 2 years ago, when I received a voucher after my collaboration with them.

After years, of being dormant, I finally did another shopping spree with Lazada. I was actually looking for an educational toy for my son, a peg board that I have seen in one of his therapy sessions. I physically searched for it in most of the toys store in the city, but to no avail. My next option is to look for in online. Searching using, I found this set of number peg boards at Lazada. As you can see it, it’s very pricey and my budget cannot permit to purchase a P2000+ on a single toy. I ditched the idea of purchasing it, and look for another alternative next time.

But I still need a new set of toys that we can use at home for his follow-up therapy,toys that target the child’s fine motor and cognitive skills, because it seems like he already memorized most of the toys we have.

Young Mindz has a great line of educational toys. The first two I got were,the set of plastic Nuts and Bolts and the Wooden Montesorri Shape Sorting Board that I appreciated a lot because of the quality. This time I checked out some of their toys that I can consider. 

From the wide selection, I chose four of them the Young Mindz Wooden Rotate to Match Blocks, the Wooden Geometric Sorting Playboard, the Pets and Vehicles Mix N Match Peg and the Wooden Cutting Fruit Set

Savemore: Nivea Products at 50% Off

How did I learn that Nivea is having a “SALE”? Well, it was my officemate who told me. She had seen it on TV and actually hoarded a lot on Monday May 4, 2015. I wanted to rush to the nearest supermarket but was super busy until yesterday, when I finally got a chance to visit SM Savemore before heading home. I thought I won’t be able to get something that I actually used, thank heavens there were still a few left on the stand.

So here they are, my chosen Nivea products taking advantage of the 50% discount before the promo ends.

2 pieces of 100g Extra White Repair Pore Minimizer Scrub that I usually use, 1 Extra White Repair Pore Minimizer Night Cream, 1 250ml Extra Whitening Body Milk, 2 Honey & Oil Crème Soap, 1 Extra Whitening Deo Stick and 1 Dry Max Deo Stick for Men. I was looking for the facial toner but they were sold out.

Anyway, yesterday’s buys was really a great steal! Imagine getting these products (that are a bit expensive) half the price?  Definite winner!

I hope you were able to grabbed some, because the promo is already on its last day. If not, well, let’s wait for next time.

7 Years and Counting!

On the day Manny Paquiao fought the greatest fight of the century against Floyd Mayweather, Jr., it was also the day we celebrated our 7th year wedding anniversary. The fight was dubbed as the boring boxing fight of the century (good thing we did not avail “pay per view”), but our day was a fun one even though I had to rush to the office after lunch to process the second batch of data and to finalize the report. By 3PM I’m out of the office and have all the time to celebrate with my family and closest friends who surprised us by really coming over.

It was one simple celebration, with fewer foods to share and devour with a lot of “hi and hello” and funny conversations.

Oh, the cake! Well, I was planning to bake my first cake at night before, but since the three (Nyc, Mia and Jhong) came over, I wasn’t able to, instead I asked Nyc to get a cake from Red Ribbon the following day before coming over to the house. I was expecting a cake when I arrived home after work, but to my surprised and to her surprised there was none. Hahaha! She forgot, because they were in a hurry to watch Manny on TV.

Anyway, the cake was baked on May 3, 2015 evening! And the taste was all right, but not really good looking! Huh!

The gift! 

Hubby and I decided to get a gift for both of us, like (equal sharing of the price tag), and this is what we got for ourselves, a 1TB external hard drive. Of course, I chose the color and the truth is, I asked him this gadget because my other HD has been already full, no more space for my newly downloaded Korean dramas. Hehehe

The movie date!

I have written about my plans and goals for this year that we had to go out and date as couple, minus the kids sometime. Finally, our plan was made true because on Monday evening (after work) hubby and I had our first movie date after so many years. We went to watch The Avengers: Age of Ultron at The Centrio Ayala Mall, our very first to hit the movie mouse after it was opened on October 2012. Can you believe that? Well, probably this our start, more movie dates in the future…

That’s it! Hubby and I had just celebrated our 7 years together as husband and wife and 14 years as a couple and we hope and pray for more happy years together as partners and as a family!
