iFern Entrepreneurship

An Aunt who has the heart of an entrepreneur, just like my Mama, invited me in a small talk and presentation of the new business she ventured. Attendees were introduced to iFern. Tommanny Tan, President and CEO, is the man behind of it all. He is also a mentor or called “Kapatid” in the Go Negosyo and Department of Trade and Industry’s Kapatid: Mentor ME (Micro Entrepreneur) Program. iFern is FERN’s international Network Marketing wing is on the rise and has penetrated the network marketing industry with the launch of world-class quality products such as Fern-D and Fern Active.

Fern-D is a brand name for Vitamin D3 or the generic name Cholecalciferol. An affordable and clinically-proven Vitamin D supplement. Study shows that a person with enough or with high levels of vitamin D has lower risks on having diseases like muscle weakness, tuberculosis, diabetes and a few more.

Fern-Activ on the other hand is packed with B-vitamins and also contains non-acidic vitamin C for improved immunity, Zinc for energy and vitamin D for stronger muscles.

Personally, I was drawn into the health benefits of the said Fern-D and Fern Activ but big yes to the Aurora soap and lotion.

Aurora beauty bar has three age-defying ingredients which are Argan Oil, Swiss Apple Stem Cell and Aloe Vera. It is so fragrant too and said to help prevent mosquito bites. Aurora Beauty Bar leaves skin whiter, smoother, lighter and moisturized. It also helps diminish age spots, hyper-pigmentation, Melasma and  the very common skin problem, acne.

My aunt, a senior citizen who doesn’t look like one in fact, is already a distributor since September last year and has personally proved the health benefits of Fern-D and Aurora Beauty Bar on her. Aside from the speaker, there were also other entrepreneurs my aunt has invited to give more details on the marketing side of the company. So, when I got home, I have Fern-D, Fern-Active, Aurora Beauty Bar and Aurora Hand and Body Lotion. I got invited too to venture in the iFern entrepreneurship opportunity they have but will have to test these products myself first and then decide if I have to also join or just help my Aunt in her business. After a month of usage, I will sure make another review post about these new products she introduced me to.



Jackie’s Food Hub

I’m all support for a dear friend’s business venture. I have seen how she has diligently planned for this to come true.

People from the North, let me inform you that Jackie’s Food Hub has opened its first 2 food carts at Howmart Road, Brgy. Apolonio Samson. My friend Yang and her partner had their dreams slowly turn to reality.

Jackie’s Food Hub offers Sisig, Lechon Kawali and Nachos for only Php50. Japanese siomai and pork siomai is also available at a very affordable price. Yang also offers her very own, home-made condiments such as shrimp paste, Chili paste, Garlic oil, Ginger oil, Pickled chili, and Pinakurat (Spiced Vinegar). All these products and her biz itself is of course, DTI registered.

Pork Sisig and Nachos was a hit at yesterday’s launch. Soon, few more food cart “branches” will open in the nearby areas.


I am but a proud friend. Who would not keep going if your mere presence is much appreciated by her very own granddaughter, Mica? Mica has always been Yang’s inspiration and so as her blessing. I am sure Yang will succeed in this business venture.

Breakfast: Banana-Raisin Oatmeal Cookie Cups

Breakfast: Banana-Raisin Oatmeal Cookie Cups

One morning, I decided to serve both K & Roey Banana oatmeal. K ended up eating both servings and Roey ate Bananas instead. K got used to eating anything you serve her, believe it or not. My Mama has really helped a lot in her eating habits. She may be skinny but I am thankful that she is not sickly as well. Both my kids, actually. Thanks to HIM! Because, health is definitely a priority for me, and then education.

Roey, on the other hand, is the picky eater, she is not skinny though. She has just learned ( I don’t know where!) to say no to any food she thinks to be yucky! Unfortunately, the oatmeal I served them was one. So, the Mom in me was given a challenge. How can I make this kid eat oatmeal?

Banana-Raisin Oatmeal Cookie Cups

Since I have been seeing oatmeal biscuit recipes online, why not try one? So, I ended up with these Banana-Raisin Oatmeal cookie cups the next morning and was very satisfied with the result.

soft on the inside
I love it Mom! It’s so fluffy…uhm…chewy!

She ate 2 cookie cups for breakfast and kept coming back to the fridge until every cookie is gone. K enjoyed the cookie cups too. Too bad I was out of flour and only ended up with 18 pieces that day. I also made a Choco Banana Oatmeal cupcake after few days for a variety. And will sure explore more healthy baking and cooking innovations for my loves.
How about you?

Hope you can share your Mommy-moves and creative tactics in serving your kids healthy breakfast or snacks, I would sure appreciate that!

Thanks in advance and happy baking or cooking and then eating! Ha! Ha!

Serve The Kids with Fun!

Gingerbreadman shaped bread


A number of parents have already ventured into Bento. Be it their kids’ snack or lunch at school. I have not tried Bento-ing or experimenting in serving my daughters with cute looking packed foods. But, I guess this was one of the firsts. I used my gingerbread man shaped cookie cutter to serve both my girls with peanut butter sandwiches. The scraps satisfied me, I have no problem with that.

Since I have been Pinterest-ing for quite sometime now, I have seen pretty cute and clever ideas how to serve kids with fun and healthy snacks. From the simplest to the most creative ideas, Pinterest have it! So, if you have that calling to be creative in the foods you serve to your kids, have fun with Bento and Pinterest too!

Snacks and Sweets



Every Mom wants to serve her child/children all the healthy foods there is and it would bring her so much joy if the kids would like it and enjoy! I never had trouble giving veggies and fruits to my girls. They’re both curious and experimental (with the different tastes), I may say. Now that they’re able to help me out with little things and chores, I ensure to compensate them (okay, reward is the word) with healthy snacks.

And I give in to sweets too, sometimes. In the next photo, lucky Roey has a 70 grams of assorted candies. That includes caramel fudge cubes I requested. Ha Ha!

So, do you given in to their sweets requests too?

Simply Healthy, Simply Happy!



Cooked a simple yet healthy lunch for the family one day last January. For a stay/work from home Mom like me, it is quite hard sometimes to think and prepare the family’s meal of the day. Especially if you have a picky eater, a curious toddler and a spouse that loves to alternate most all-time-Filipino-dishes. Not to mention a slightly tight budget. I have to set my own choice most of the time… not until this particular day when I did not ask for their meal requests. I gave in to mine! To my surprise, they all liked it too! I am just glad that both my girls eat veggies. They may be both picky at times but does not say NO to veggies.

Let My Jinga Juice Bring Out Your Youthful Glow!

Do you ever have skin problems? Eczema, acne and Psoriasis, to name a few. Do your kids or someone you know suffer from itchiness and discomfort these irritations bring?

Most of us do or did have to go through irritations like these and we have to resort using expensive topical creams or maybe dermatological remedies. A lot did not know that Guyabano (Soursop) and Wheatgrass can help – clean, safe and healthy!

My JINGA JUICE is made from Guyabano (the whole fruit and its seeds) and Wheatgrass…the first of its kind in the market. There were reports that Guyabano seeds and leaves were used as skin astringent, used to treat headlice and even to purge bed bugs too! While Wheatgrass effectively reduces wound, acne and acute rashes’ pain, swelling and inflammation. It is also being used to treat burns and insect bites.

So, stay healthy and prevent illnesses! With balanced diet, take Jinga Juice regularly, be energized and bring out that youthful glow in you!

Why we highly recommend Jinga Juice?

Thought you’d never ask!

WHEATGRASS alone is a powerful detoxifier and bloodstream protector. It restores alkalinity to the blood and can double your red blood cell count. Wheatgrass is perfect as it contains Chlorophyll. Chlorophyll improves blood sugar problems.

GUYABANO on the other hand, is an effective help to lower high blood pressure. It is also used for depression, stress and nervous disorders. In addition, it is highly effective against internal parasites and worms.

Perfect for kids! Jinga Juice is something they would surely enjoy!
Now you know!

I am having difficulty with internet connection so I missed half of May with FatMumSlim’s photo-a-day challenge and the first 2 days of June too. But who said I could not post a catch up? None can stop me now as I decided to join through blog posts…and here’s for the first 3 days of June!

My girls and I enjoyed a beach in Batangas mid of May and here’s one of the best (I think) shots I have for something B!

B is for Beach



A moment…

This moment is priceless for me as my little Roey dear overcome her fear of being in the pool (without me holding her). She has also managed to be brave enough and enjoyed the slides all by herself.
