Build Your Child’s Castle of Dreams

* A juvenile (child) insurance cum investment plan serves two purposes:

Financially secure your child’s future.
Finance the turning points in his/her life such as college education, graduation, business start-up and marriage.

In all honesty, there were a lot of debates about juvenile insurance. Indeed widely controversial at the start, but life insurance for children eventually gained acceptance, worldwide. In this fast-faced world of ours, a juvenile policy is also being considered as a form or part of a sound financial plan. An investment tool to be exact. Our kids have big dreams. Might as well start saving for their dreams….now!

Be there in every step of the way. Get to know more about juvenile insurance. Send me a message to schedule a face-to-face presentation of Pru Savings and understand how it benefits you and your child.

Christmas Budgeting Tips

I have recently discovered Lumen5 from a friend and fellow freelancer. She made a very nice video for a client we are both working with and it is impressive. So, I got really curious of it as it will sure help me out in creating VLOGs which I can of course, use. Now, here is the first vlog I made based from my previous post “Financial Tips This Christmas Season“.

 

Lumen5 is indeed a great tool! It is a video creating platform to produce high quality social media content. It is user-friendly and has a wide range of free materials that you can use in your videos. This video I created is a mixed of my own images and from their media library too, including the background music.

Be Moved By Miracle in Cell No.7 Movie

My friend Pia recommended this movie to me when she tagged me in her Facebook status sometime last week. In her stat, she has declared how she has been touched by the movie that she had to suffer from a headache after crying (because of the movie).

From then, I searched for info and photos of Miracle in Cell No.7 and honestly got a lot more curious. Since last week was the Holy Week, I grabbed the opportunity to work for additional hours. We stayed at home and only until Sunday did we went out and attended the “Salubong” and Easter Sunday mass. I forgot about the movie already. My kids and I (while working) watched previous seasons of Amazing Race and also the pilot episode of The Bible. And then, I saw another good review of the movie Miracle in Cell No.7 which reminded me to look for a good link, so we can watch it online. I did found one and we watched the movie last night, at last!

Miracle in Cell No.7, if you will search through Wiki and IMDb is South Korean film which is a mix of comedy and melodrama. It is a story of a witty and adorable 6 year old girl and her mentally challenged father. The loving father who was wrongfully accused of abduction, sexual abuse and murder. It is a beautiful story of a father who will do everything to give his daughter the best he can (even given with challenges). A (real life) story of how people, in their words and in their acts can change and give another person’s life a twist. Bad and good, I should say. It is a sad story of how power and education (can I please include politics) can do great to someone’s life but can also ruin it – totally screw it!

The movie, Miracle in Cell No.7 is yet another movie a lot of us can not forget. We may have seen things in it in different perspectives but each of these views have touched our hearts and taught our minds. In the end, family is not just about blood. True friends are family too. The movie also reminded me that sometimes the little things have the biggest impacts in our lives.

This movie, by the way, is the 3rd most viewed Korean film. We highly recommend for you to also watch Miracle in Cell No.7 and better ready your tissues or handkerchief with you. No one is ever hard not to be moved by the movie.

Saying I’m Sorry

I have recently found a TV show for kids – Sheriff Callie’s Wild West!

The very first episode we have watched (Roey and I) has this song entitled “Saying I’m Sorry!” And it has become part of Roey’s favorite songs list from then on. Both my kids love to sing and that particular song is something any Mom will recommend. It is not just so easy to sing, it is also meaningful. Meaningful in the sense that it teaches the importance of saying “I’m Sorry”. Educating my kids with good manners and values is on top of my parenting priorities. I am not alone in this for sure.

Here’s the lyrics of the song from Sheriff Callie’s Wild West:

Sayin’ you’re sorry
isn’t always easy to say.
But those two little words can
help a lot to save a friendship any day.

Sayin’ you’re sorry
isn’t always easy to do.
But you’ll feel good when you apologize
and your friend will feel better too.

Sometimes we all say some things
we wish we could take back.
That’s the time to apologize and
get your friendship back on track.

Sayin’ I’m sorry isn’t always easy to say.
But those two little words
could help a lot to save
a friendship any day.

Sayin’ you’re sorry
isn’t always easy to do.
But you’ll feel good when you apologize
And your friend will feel better too.

Go ahead and try to search it in YouTube and sing along with your kids. In the end, even if you didn’t have to say you are sorry, you will sure feel good.

5 things a simple SMILE can do

You have heard that “Laughter is the best medicine!” but did you ever wonder why?
You must have already found the answer from Google or from a medical book maybe.

Admittingly, since I have had dentures years back, I feel awkward when I smile. So, when I give a polite type of smile, I (most often than not) also let my eyes work – a wink, a smiling eyes or a quick raise of the eyebrows. But sometimes, I feel that I am not really giving it (smile and what it meant in whatever moment there is) 100%. I am haunted by that feeling for sometime, really! Especially when I became a Mom. My daughters would gladly smile at me with zero hesitation, or awkwardness at all. So, I had let go of that in-confidence and share my own different type of smiles. Well, yes, I have read that there were indeed different types of smile. I even found myself in front of the bathroom mirror smiling and counting! Ha! Ha!
You may find a lot more things a smile can do to yourself or to someone else but here is my top 5.

1653267_10151923481611938_2140265132_n

1. A SMILE is contagious.
2. “Every time you smile, it is an act of love – a gift …” ~Mother Teresa
3. We are all rich of smiles, be generous! A warm smile can touch and enrich the ones who receive it and it won’t cost you a thing.
4. A genuine smile is an asset! It attracts attention and promotion. It brings out an aura of confidence and positiveness which people find to be attractive.
5. Smiling is a stress-reliever! You are more relaxed when you smile. And because of its stress-relieving property, your immune system is strengthened and thus, smiling can actually prevent colds and reduce blood pressure.
So turn that frown upside down, Smile! Do something good to yourself and better things will happen to you!

A Prayer

A beautiful female actress, Denise Laurel, posted this prayer on her Instagram account and I cannot help but like it. Love it, actually!

In fact, I copied the prayer and made a new layout for it using Photoshop. (Yes! I have Photoshop again, yay!) Okay, not layout, just a different background and font. =)

Here, I am but glad to share the prayer in my blog too.

PRAYER

 

This prayer moved me. I wish someone would be “awaken” as well. I even think that this is another prayer you can actually say everyday.

Hope this post made you smile and at least feel good.

To Do List: Yes I Can!

I have been joining FatMumSlim’s Photo a Day Challenge and so far, I have not skipped a day. Yay! If I’d be able to complete the January challenge, I know I can do it for the rest of the remaining months too! As per my daughter K, “Push it Mom!”

Today’s challenge, or theme is actually a “To Do List”. And this is what I have submitted:

stef1
I think I came up with this idea from a thought that came into my mind Saturday afternoon as I was walking back home after I bought something from a nearby store… these are better said (or written) in Filipino as it gives depth to its meaning. This is also more of a realization for me.

At the end of the day, it is best if everyone can sleep with a peaceful mind and heart.

Yung tipong hindi mo man na-resolve anumang problema mo sa buhay, may peace kang mararamdaman at nakakabawas ng stress yun. Dapat pala ituro ko sa mga anak ko na at least may 3 bagay tayong dapat na-a-accomplish a day.

a. Gumawa ng (kahit ano) kabutihan.

b. Magkaroon ng bago o magpangiti ng kaibigan.

c. At night, magpasalamat sa makabuluhang araw na nagdaan.

In English…

At the end of the day, it is best if everyone can sleep with a peaceful mind and heart.

That even if you were unable to resolve whatever issues or problems you may have, you make it a point to at least feel peace and feel a little stress free too. I should teach my kids that we should accomplish 3 things everyday.

a. Do something good (any kind of good).

b. Make new friends or at least make a friend smile.

c. At night, give thanks for the significance of the day that past.

After several minutes, I had to somehow correct myself, I realized that my list should be updated. I’ll post the better version tomorrow!  How about you? What’s you To Do List? Have you joined any photo a day challenge? Don’t say you can’t because I can!
