Help Rebuild Philippines – An Appeal

Most of us if not all knew what happened to our countrymen when the world’s strongest typhoon ever landed. We are thankful for all the help that’s been coming and all the thoughts you’ve been sending. Rebuilding isn’t easy and won’t happen over night. We all try our best to do what we can to help in our own little way.

We did a little drive with friends and we’re able to gather clothes, easy to prepare food, slippers and candles. We’re lucky to have kind heart friends that are willing to spend a little time collecting and donating. Though these were immediate needs, we still need to look at a bigger picture. Survivors are currently staying in tents. So, I decided to create a campaign with Habitat for Humanity. All proceeds will be used in developing decent homes for all survivors who we know pretty much lost everything. You can see the campaign here.

My goal is to raise PhP 50K. You think you can be a part of it?

Stage Mom Extraordinaire

In less than 3 years I have shown various signs of being a stage mom. I knew from the very beginning I would be one and am proud of it! First major sign I was a stage mom appeared when we signed up our daughter for her first ever Halloween Costume Party. It was held at Gymboree Trinoma last October 25th. The theme – Candyland.

My mother, being the stage grand that she is checked her tailor and volunteered her services. My mom quickly went out and sourced the fabrics necessary for the costume. Unfortunately, the tailor didn’t live up to our expectations. A few fays before the big day I scoured the web to find the best costume maker. I’ve heard this costume rental store before, Camp Suki and thought it’s worth giving it a call. The owner agreed to take the job despite the very short lead time. I sent them the idea we have and went over to their shop to get our daughter measured up.

I went all out for her costume and guess what, daughter got to win Best in Costume! Oh yeah!
