Proper sleepwear makes a difference.

I was viewing some old videos of Caleb and his Dad when he was still 4 months old. I can’t believe how much he has grown now. He’s almost 2 years old and is 37 inches tall. It seemed just like yesterday when I needed to be up for every 2 hours to nurse him in my Nursing Pajamas. It sure helped with the cold winter weather that time. The sleepwear was soft, comfy and functional. It had made the breastfeeding experience a bit comfortable. Even now that I'm no longer breastfeeding him, I still find myself wanting to wear those jammies as they are perfect to wear around the house.

Coco Palms Resort in Danao.

Truly the best way to beat the tropical heat is swimming in pools and beaches. Philippines being a tropical country is blessed to have countless beach resorts that people can enjoy during a hot and humid day. Coco Palms Resort in Danao is a fairly new resort located in Northern Cebu. We went there with my relatives and family to enjoy the blue waters and cool ocean breeze. The place is not that big but clean and beautifully landscaped. I love their infinity pool. You can actually get a feel of the ocean without having to swim in it. The view was awesome! It is a perfect way to unwind and de-stress from the city rush. They don't allow food brought in from the outside but they have a restaurant that serve good food with relatively fair price. Resort's entrance fee is Php150.00. They have 2 swimming pools, both equally clean and refreshing. So if you're looking for a perfect cheap getaway, try going to Coco Palms. It's definitely worth it.

It may begin with a simple "Thank You".

In almost anything that we do, thank you can be a powerful word. It’s such a simple word yet with a meaningful action. There are so many things to be grateful in life so we should never forget to thank everyone that has made an impact in us. This is true even in the corporate world. The need to send business thank you cards at is almost like a part of proper business etiquette. You gain more prospective clients and possibly friends if you learn to appreciate small things and be grateful with them. Remember a simple thank you card goes a long way as far as building popularity with your business endeavors.

Caleb meets his grandparents for the first time.

After almost 3 years from my last visit, I finally came back for another vacation to my homeland Philippines. This time, with a 20-month old baby in tow. I knew it's going to be tough traveling internationally with an infant but this means a lot to me and my family since it's going to be the first time that they will see their grandson, so by all means, me and hubby made this vacation possible. He may not be here physically with us but he is happy knowing Caleb gets to experience his Filipino heritage. 

Due to a storm in Korea that day, our flights had been delayed. Despite the lack of sleep and uncertainty of waiting when will our flight land, they stuck it out and waited patiently for us to arrive. I can see their happy and excited faces once they saw their grandson. I felt all hardships that I went through from the air travel was worth it. This trip made everyone happy.
