My De’Longhi Christmas Wishlist


When you are asked to draw up a wishlist, you know that Christmas is nearing.

Lately, I have never looked at my household the same way I did. So my wishlist this year will be home appliances, and what better place can I get these appliances but from De'Longhi.

1. Dehumidier


Features of De'Longhi's dehumidifier I most appreciate are:
Electronic shut-off timer up to 8 h
"Tank Control System": the unit automatically stops when the tank is full
SWING function: 3-position oscillating louvers to optimize the air distribution
Very noiseless operation: only 34 dB(A)!
Clothes drying function: removes up to 6 l/d at any temperature 

I dislike humid and musty environments thus the need for a dehumidier. According to ExplainThatStuff.com, whether you have a damp problem with your building (rising or penetrating damp) or your moisture comes from cooking or drying laundry inside (condensation), the result can be a horrible musty smell, mold growing on your walls (and on your clothes), and a greater risk of respiratory illness. It can take time to sort out a major damp problem so what do you do in the meantime? One solution is to invest in a dehumidifier: an electric gadget that removes moisture from the air.



The De’Longhi Gelataio prepares real rich and creamy Italian ice-cream thanks to its advanced cooling system. As in the professional machines, the product has its own cooling freezer mechanism with built in compressor and refrigeration. All the basic components are designed to guarantee excellent results and reliability.

My family just love gelato! And with this we can have it anytime we want to.  



Sfornatutto Pangourmet is a compact, fan-assisted oven for everyday use. With 6 cooking functions including fan-assisted, traditional and grill functions, it is perfect for making tasty first courses, delicious second courses and amazing desserts every day: ideal for everyday use and to enhance your cooking experience.

One of my favorite childhood memories is the scent of freshly baked bread in my grandparents' kitchen almost every 3 o'clock in the afternoon. I remember we would always have snacks midday and mid afternoon every day. And we would have different kinds of snacks--banana fritters, doughnuts, porridge, or bread--and always paired with hot milk. 

I should start making these same memories in my own home, lol!

Old Orchard Cranberry’s 5 Simple Lifestyle Tweaks for a Healthier Lifestyle



Striving for a healthier lifestyle can be refreshing and easily achieved with the help of the American juice brand, Old Orchard Cranberry Juice. Did you know that Cranberries are distinguished in the nutrition world because they boast various health benefits? This gives consumers better options and alternatives on how to care for their bodies and live a healthy lifestyle.

One of the main health benefits of drinking Cranberry Juice is that it helps prevent Urinary Tract Infection (UTI) from occurring and worsening, as cranberries are a rich source of Flavonoid and Phytonutrient contents called hippuric acid and proanthocyanidin, which provide antioxidant and antimicrobial benefits. Considering that UTI is one of the 2nd most common infections in the body, it’s amazing that a small fruit like cranberry could help prevent infection and permanent damage to the kidneys if not taken care of. So if you’re looking for other ways to give your urinary system some TLC, take heed of these advices from Philippine-USA registered dietitian-nutritionist Cheshire Que, RDN:

1. Level up your hydration status. “It is human nature to seek water in variety of forms to quench thirst and cool the skin simply because the body is made up of 45 to 75 percent of water”, asserts Que.  However, this simple tip is harder than you think since it takes discipline and conscious effort on a daily basis. “Water helps flush out bacteria that saves your bladder from infections, so keep yourself hydrated throughout the day by consciously drinking water whether or not you are thirsty. We can also add various types of beverages aside from water, but practice moderation on drinking liquids that contain sugar, fat, and alcohol,” adds Que.

2. Prioritize your “pee” time. We’ve heard it many times before and let us say this again: Don’t put off your pee the moment you feel it as to prevent bacteria from colonizing in your bladder. Que prescribes: “Urinating helps regulate blood pressure and removes the body’s waste product called urea--so fully emptying your bladder with adequate fluid intake can ward off not just UTI but kidney stone formation”.

3. Practice good hygiene. Unfortunately, women are more prone to UTI than men so ladies should learn this technique on how to properly keep their nether region clean: Wipe your intimate area from front to back all the time and opt for a cotton underwear since it’s more breathable than any material.

4. Give your immune system a boost. Different external factors such as stress happens and can take a toll on our mind and body, which compromises our immunity. That’s why Que’s advice is to load up on nutrient-rich foods such as citrus fruits, green leafy vegetables, and berries coupled with at least 7 hours of sleep and exercise that help strengthen your defense against bacterial infection.

5. Sip cranberry juice. Don’t get bogged down thinking that cranberries are just for your cocktails; cranberry juice is one of the best diuretics out there. It’s also good to know that drinking cranberry for UTI isn’t just an old wives’ tale. According to Que, “Cranberries contain phytochemicals and antioxidants that help prevent UTI. Its bioactive compounds called proanthocynidins flush out bacteria, specifically E. Coli.” 

Old Orchard Cranberry Juices are grown, harvested, and packed in a modern facility in Michigan, USA, where the great-tasting and perfect blends of juices are whipped up daily. You can be sure that every drop is healthy and stable before even reaching your glasses.  Old Orchard Cranberry Juice is available in 3 delicious variants: Cranberry, Apple Cranberry and Cranberry Raspberry. There are also diabetic-friendly variants that contain 75% less sugar and only 20 calories: Healthy Balance Cranberry and Healthy Apple Balance. Coupled with a healthy lifestyle and a balanced diet, there is no shortage of fun and flavorful ways of protecting and loving your bladder while nourishing your whole family.

Celebrate the Taste of Spain with Doña Elena

Doña Elena Olive Oil is the consistent no. 1 olive oil brand in the country that is exclusively distributed by Fly Ace Corporation

The country’s consistent Number 1 olive oil brand, Doña Elena Olive Oil, recently treated trade partners and friends to a mouthwatering and fun-filled cooking class at the New World Manila Bay.

Headed by executive chef James Williams together with his team of kitchen experts, whipped up two of Spain’s most revered dishes that can also be recreated easily at home: Seafood Paella and Gazpacho.

Celebrity host Bianca King and New World Manila Bay Executive Chef James Williams talks about Doña Elena Olive Oil’s 3 types of variants: Pure, extra virgin, and pomace

Hosted by blogger-actress and healthy food enthusiast Bianca King, the event also emphasizes the importance of making smart choices when it comes to our food ingredients. Since Doña Elena Olive Oil is harvested and bottled from Spain, the world’s largest and most reputable source of olive oil in the world, you can’t really go wrong with its taste and quality. A combination of hojiblanca and picual olives, the concoction also amps up its health benefits: Higher levels of good fats and antioxidants plus 80% monounsaturated oleic acids that are good for the heart!

Doña Elena Olive Oil’s Seafood Paella

Doña Elena Olive Oil’s Narvajas Al Ajillo with Pan Con Tomate

Doña Elena Olive Oil’s Rabo de Toro or Spanish Bull Tail Stew

After learning two of Spain’s iconic dishes, the newest breed of Doña Elena cuisineras were instantly inspired to add more olive oil laden dishes for themselves and for their family. Capped with an indulging 4-course Spanish food lunch with the participants’ very own lovingly prepared gazpacho and paella mixta or seafood paella, they also feasted on New World Manila Bay Hotel’s rabo de toro or Spanish tail stew and navajas al ajillo or razor clam with Doña Elena Olive Oil as its winning ingredient. Washed down with fruity and refreshing sangria punched up with Doña Elena wine, the meal was nothing short of memorable.

While most Filipinos are intimidated  by the stereotype reputation of olive oil as being expensive and preparation of Spanish food as laborious, Doña Elena Olive Oil proves that they’re just a notion. Using olive oil is actually an investment for the health and nature’s answer to making almost any food taste better.

Fly Ace Corporation’s Senior Product Manager Zenith Prudentino, President Jun Cochanco, and Product Assistant Christine Reyes leads the celebration of healthy cooking with Dona Elena Olive Oil

During the cooking class, Fly Ace Corporation president Jun Cochanco also shared that the secret behind the success of the brand is the company’s commitment to bringing the best food and beverages of the world to the Filipinos. “We are proud to say that the overwhelming response from the Philippine market consistently places Doña Elena as the no. 1 olive oil in the country,” he shares.

3 Big Lessons at 48


October, my birth month is ending today. For a month, I tried to ponder about how I came to be where I am today. At 48, I didn't really think I would be on a semi-retired state. I call it semi-retired mainly because I am now working remotely, and mostly from home. Gone are the power dressing and the power meetings. But it doesn't mean less toxic, quite the contrary.

Life as we know it, isn't what it seems it is.

So, what are the big realizations as I turn forty-eight?

1. When you're down, you are really down. At some point, I fell, and fell hard... left a career I thought I carefully and lovingly nurtured and built. Not many know that I found myself on the edge of an abyss. I made bad decisions, alright, but I don't believe I am a bad person who is out to search and destroy. Well, too bad, I am not everybody else's. How I know myself is different from how other people perceive me. So, I go down the career path, and have stayed down. My daily whisper to my God is, "Ok, Lord, here I am, your servant, use me."

And I thank Him for keeping me; for despite the chaos surrounding me, He continues to bless me with a solid and happy family life. I think he let me work from home because there is my haven. My husband has been my source of patience, understanding, faith, and love... and finances. Yes, after about eight years of being financially independent from my husband, I had to rely on him--and even on my parents (this is how I got a Palawan express card, ha ha!)--again to be able to cope with my own financial needs after my income plummeted considerably.

My confidence leveled to the ground.          

2. Low self esteem is really really bad. Without a career to speak of, I also lost my self-esteem. I doubted my capability. To be honest, I felt dumb, and I have never felt so small in my entire life! It doesn't help that from a macro management level, I am thrown into the micro level where I feel like I am back to square one, and just starting. The great what-if hounded me. I could have been a wreck, but I didn't allow it. What I did was seek friends who believe in me, and spend quality time with them almost every weekend.

By the grace of the Lord and by the grace of my family and friends, I am slowly picking up myself... piece by piece.  

3. If things are meant to be, they are really meant to be. If you're down, you cannot stay down forever. Impossible! The wheels are meant to turn up after they are down. It's funny how we are always taught to make plans to succeed. I'm sure you've heard of the line, "If you don't make a plan, you plan to fail." Surprise! There are a couple of things--major turnarounds, memorable breakthroughs, I (or my husband and I) didn't plan or even ask for but they happened or were given anyway.

Or in retrospect, was I in the pursuit of things that were not meant to be? No wonder those things were elusive. Perhaps, I was too busy planning what I thought would be best for me thus failing to listen to what He knows what's best for me. For sure, God meant them to happen, and I couldn't thank Him enough!    

So, as I turn another page, this is going to be my mantra:


... for I am with my God always!

Cheers to 48th!
