Isa sa pinaka malaking pagbabagong nagaganap sa atin ay ang pag iiba ng ating anyo o itsura. Habang tayo’y nagkaka edad, ito at nagaganap sa ating mukha at katawan. Kanais nais man o hindi, wala tayong magagawa kundi ang tanggapin at yakapin ang mga ito.
Naalala ko tuloy nung kabataan ko, maraming nagsasabi na meron naman daw akong angking ganda. Sa maniwala kayo o hindi, marami rami din naman akong naging mga taga hanga at manliligaw noon. At alam nyo ba, nakapagtatakang halos lahat sila ay iisa ang paboritong bitbitin kapag umaakyat ng ligaw sa aming bahay? Kung hindi puto, ay pulburon na galing at gawa sa Goldilocks. Palibhasa'y mura at kayang kayang bilhin ng mga binatilyong noo'y mga estudyante at totoy pa.
Pero sa lahat, isa lang ang aking napusuan. Katangi tangi sya maliban sa iisang bagay. Kagaya ng iba ko pang mga manliligaw, wala syang ibang binibigay sa akin kundi ang mga produktong mula sa Goldilocks. Paborito naman nyang pasalubong ang Krema de Fruta, alam nya kasi na gustong gusto ito nang buong pamilya. At alam nyo ba nasa sa Goldilocks nya rin ako dinala at pinakain nung unang date namin? Naalala ko pa, puto at dinuguan ang inorder nya at Pansit Malabon naman ang sa akin. Kay sayang balik tanawin ng mga unang ala alang iyon!
Lumipas ang panahon at kapwa kami tumatanda, nagbabago na rin ang aming mga itsura. Maraming beses na tila ba dumarating ang mga panahong nakadarama ako ng kalungkutan dahil sa mga pagbabagong nagaganap sa aking pisikal na anyo. Pero sa kabila noon, ipinadarama nya pa rin na ako ang pinaka magandang babae sa kanyang paningin. At gaya ng dati, sa mga panahong gusto nya akong pasayahin, Goldilocks ang alam nyang nakapagpapangiti sa akin.
Kaya sa pagdiriwang ng aming ika apat na anibersaryo sa taong ito, hindi nakapagtatakang ito ang surpresa nya sa akin:
Kahit siguro lumipas pa ang panahon, mananatiling numero uno para sa amin ang Goldilocks. At kahit nga ngayong kami ay may supling na, ito pa din ang aming hinahanap at laging kapiling namin sa bawat mahahalagang yugto at selebrasyon ng aming buhay.
Mula noon, hanggang ngayon, mananatiling numero uno para sa amin ang Goldilocks. Marami mang mabago, at marami mang dumating, ito pa rin ang aming hahanap hanapin.
You're the one, Goldilocks!

I joined Kumiko Mae's midyear blog contest and won!
The mechanics were so easy and simple. But I guess, what made me win was my photo entry posted on her FB account (that was optional though). She asked us to post a picture wearing our favorite shoes or dress.
Well here was my entry. This was actually not a very recent pic. This was taken last year when I was 8 months preggy with our bunso. I couldn't find any other photo of me wearing a nice dress so I chose to send this one. Well, as they say, 'maswerte talaga ang buntis'.
Here are my prizes... Plains and Prints and VNC gift certificates and other discount coupons! I'm actually more excited to shop for VNC shoes!
And of course, a love note from Miss Kumi! Thank you so much for choosing me! More power to your blog! :)
(Puro Cadburry! Sakto, I was craving for these a week before they came back from NZ... They brought home flavors and variants which we couldn't buy here... ;)
(Clothes, books and toys for the kids :) )
(Masheng's favorite! This one's really cute!)
Thanks Mama, Opay and Ipay! Thanks din to Masheng's and Baby King's grannies (aunt Tima and uncle Dan , who live in NZ) for the other pasalubongs (especially for Masheng's books, she loves them!). Next time, kami naman ang pupunta dyan :)
Thank you so much for this wonderful phone LG! We love it!
Click here to view the winners list:
This was the biggest contest that I've joined so far...
Out of hundreds who submitted their pics, we were luckily chosen to be one of the 50 finalists (lucky, because I submitted my entry the day before the submission period had ended).
The next 3 weeks was a bit tough since voting gets 50 percent of the criteria (the remaining 20% goes to creativity and image quality and 30% for having emotional impact).
Though our votes didn't make it to top 7 (there would be just 7 winners), I was still hopeful since I did believe that the photo I submitted would somehow gain points based on the other criterias.
And I was right! After the voting period, I got a message from Bisolvon telling that us we made it to top 5! I thought we were just among the 5 finalists who won 10,000 each. But I got even more surprised when the winners were finally announced... we made it to the second place and won 25,000!
I was so happy that despite our low votes, we still made it! That means our entry was chosen because of it's creativity and emotional impact.
Kudos to all the SuperMOMs who joined especially to those who made it to top 7!
Here are the rest of the winners:

Until I found out that this word was actually derived from the word "sunflower" in Italian. From there we could understand that the cosmetic brand Elianto signifies the beauty and vibrance of the object it symbolizes.
I've first known Elianto in 2007. A suitor gave a skin care set to my sister as a gift. Being a skin care product addict, (and since my sister is not so into natural products), I asked her to just hand it to me. With the first days of use, I noticed how it's natural ingredients soothed my skin. Since then, I always include Elianto products in my shopping list.
Among my favorites are Elianto's Green Tea skin care products. I especially like their Green Tea Facial Foam Cleanser, Scrub and Moisturizing Emulsion. Aside from containing anti oxidant ingredients (which are naturally found in green tea extracts), these also helps skin cell rejuvenation and protects skin from free radicals.
Skin impurities have always been a big problem for me that's why I usually look for natural products that will eliminate such. When I used Elianto's green tea creations, I suddenly noticed big changes on my skin. They also have a naturally soothing scent that's why I feel relaxed and rejuvenated every after using it.
Aside from green tea, there are other variety of ingredients in Elianto's skin care products to choose from. They also have honey, aloe, pomegranate, kiwi fruit, cucumber, ginseng and pearl. All are naturally inspired and will give your skin nothing but the best care in a very affordable price.

When I was still single, I used to always have long hair. It used to be one of my assets and most people used to often admire it's softness and beauty. But this changed when I started having a family. I've been busy with work and with my kids that I barely have time to pamper and take care of myself anymore. Stressful days, sleepless nights - all these have been taking its toll on my crowning glory.
Until I discovered New Sunsilk Co-Creations. Slowly, my hair goes back to the way it used to be. It started becoming soft and shiny again. I never thought I could have an expert-touched hair without going to the salon for various hair treatments.
That's why for busy moms like me, I highly recommend New Sunsilk Co-Creations. Try it and see the difference :)
