Meet the Minions!

Remember my last post? I mentioned that I availed the pre-order campaign of the Minions Mcdo Happy Meal, just to make sure I’ll get them all in one go. Yesterday, I finally was able to get hold of these cute yellow creatures. 

Aside from the whole set, I bought another one Happy Meal yesterday and got Chatting Bob.

He is now smilingly watching over me from above the CPU, whenever I’m in the office with his new friend, Shaolin Kid and Orange M&M.

Happy Father’s Day to My Dad in Heaven

Another Father’s Day, and I can’t help but be sad and at the same time happy remembering my Dad. Sad because I won’t be celebrating the day with him, I won’t be able to give him what he wants now that I have a stable job, and I  won’t be able  to see him playing with his grandchildren.
But in spite those, I am happy because your memories are still fresh in my mind and in my heart, contended, because I know you are already happy together with Mom in the hands of the Lord.

Happy Father’s Day In Heaven Papang! I Miss You So Much!

The Minions Are Back in McDonalds Happy Meal

Do you know how excited I was when I learned that the Minions will be the featured toys of McDonalds Happy Meal? Well, if to rate from 1 to 10 with 10 the highest, definitely, the meter went to as high as 10. That’s how excited I was, considering I wasn’t able to get any of this cute yellow creatures before.  
Minions displayed at McDonalds Iloilo
I spotted these cuties at McDonalds Iloilo, looking forward to get one or two, but sadly, they are not available yet until the 25th of June.

And the good news is the Minions are available for pre order and be the first to get the whole set on the 25th. Excitement overflowing! But wait, I can’t order it in Iloilo because I am only in the city for 3 days, thus, I placed my order this afternoon at McDonalds Divisoria Branch in Cagayan de Oro City.

Getting the whole set in one go is easy, all you have to do is visit the nearest McDonald’s branch from June 15-20, pre-order the complete Minion Happy Meal set for P949, you’ll get 1 set of claim stubs for all the 10 Minions toys and 10 Happy Meal food stubs which can be availed/used until August 19, 2015.  

I already got mine, how about you? You have until tomorrow to preorder the set or wait for it to be available individually on every McDonalds Happy Meal starting on the 25th  or 26th (according to the crew).

Top 5 Gifts for my Engineer Husband on Father’s Day

On Sunday, June 21, 2015 we’ll be honoring the man who is everything to us, my children’s father, my husband, our provider, our friend. Father’s Day becomes more special because my husband will be celebrating his birthday as well this month, on June 19.

Because of the expenses we had lately, we usually forgot to give each other even just simple gifts, though greetings, hugs and kisses or just our presence during the very day, makes it more special than any other material gifts.

This year, I have saved up enough to get him a surprise gift. I have thought it through and this list came to light. Since, my husband works in the field, I am thinking of choosing from these 5 gift ideas that will be very useful not only at work but in his everyday life.

1. A Wrist Watch

Fossil - Mens Grant Fs4839 Brown Leather Quartz Watch With Beige Dial

J is no fan of accessories. One of the two of the things he can actually wear is a wrist watch. He loves watches, I actually bought some a few years back and he cherishes them until now. This year I am planning to give another, like the Fossil - Mens Grant Fs4839 Brown Leather Quartz Watch With Beige Dial - $94.99, See Site shipping - Available at An ideal accessory to help him manage his time.

EQ Dry Bonding Time Buddies

I saw these flyers, attached on every pack of EQ Dry diapers on Saturday. I can’t hide the excitement and actually detached right away one of the flyers, from the 2 packs of EQ diapers that I have in my shopping cart. I wonder what they have in store for us…

If, last year, they gave us Play Pals in exchange of a certain number of wrappers or accumulated points, this time there are cute LED Lamps and suction bowls with spoons up for grabs.

First Sunday of June 2015

My weekends these past months were very chaotic. Instead of spending my two rest days of the week at home, I had to give up 1 day to report to the office for an overtime. Our set-up at work is a little tiring the past months, because only two of us carry the workload that is supposedly for five.  But indeed, our stresses and burdens are compensated at the end of the month when we receive our overtime pay. An additional income that is also very helpful to us. Kaya okay na rin…  

Today, I had my rest day. Rest day in a sense that I won’t be sitting in front of my office computer for a day.  But there is no rest day when it comes to my other job, being a mother and a homemaker. That is why my whole day was still full, until hours ago that my kiddos were already in bed, and I am in front of my PC trying to create this post.

This afternoon, after my trip to the department store and the grocery I took my two kids to SM to play at the Playhouse located at the 2nd floor of the mall. Hubby actually set-up my activity this afternoon, he wanted me to take the boy to the playhouse, kasi matagal na daw hindi na kapaglaro dun, which is actually true. But instead of taking the boy only, I brought the girl and her Yaya as well. Hubby is on duty, that is why I played the driver today.

So it’s the girl’s first playhouse experience at SM. We haven’t taken the girl in the playhouse before. We waited until she can walk  and balance well before letting her, and that time was this afternoon, though she can’t run yet.

She was hesitant to play, or roam around the place. She’s not used to seeing a lot of kids playing and running, so most of the time she clung to me. Thankfully, there is this space where there are lego pieces, a round table with a basin in the middle and chairs for the little one who wish to construct anything. The little girl was so contented in her post, she wasn’t trying to construct, but rather disassemble the pieces previously constructed my other kids.  Just like what she does at home every time we had an activity with her kuya.  Si kuya taga lagay ng pegs, si baby naman taga tangal.

Later on, she was more at ease and gave this pose. One hour and thirty minutes later we left the playhouse after paying a whooping P450 ha! Ang mahal din…

Meanwhile, we spotted Jolibee dancing. Jolibee was having a short activity for the kids. We wanted to take photos with Jolibee but there were a lot of kids, so instead we joined the “bring me something” game. We won two two regular yum burgers by bringing a 5 cent coin and a pink hanky. Yippee!

Overall, our day was indeed fun. Probably next time, the little girl will surely enjoy the more physical play. Ciao!

Get Portion of Your Cash back with ShopBack

Looking physically for the things we need in local stores is sometimes very frustrating. Imagine going from one store to another but to no avail. Hence, online shopping is the best alternative we have right now, thanks to the technology and bringing shopping right in front of us. Online shopping can be done, just anywhere as long as you have the internet, the computer or your smartphone.

Online shopping has a lot of advantages, some to mention are convenience and discount vouchers. Yep, I love looking/waiting for discount vouchers before making my purchases, it allows me to save money. What more if we get a portion of the money we spent in our online purchases back? Good gracious, awesome right? This is what is all about, we get a portion of our cash back when we spend online through them.
