Vita Cubes: A Healthy Treat

I am personally not fond of eating candies.  Because aside from lot of sugar I get from eating one, I also expose my teeth to be rotten.  My little boy is quite the opposite.  He loves eating candies.  That sweet treat he open bit by bit and munch on little by little is something, as a mommy, I try to avoid giving him.  But how can you resist the smile of a little boy given a small treat?  Good thing I was introduced to Vita Cubes.

Vita Cubes is a cube-shaped jelly candies that comes in different fruit flavors - apple, orange, grape, strawberry, and mango.  What moms would love about Vita Cubes is that aside from the delicious taste, it is fortified with essential vitamins and minerals that are vital to growing kids.  It contains Lysine, Zinc, Vitamin A, B, C, and E.

Neo is one happy little boy!  Thanks for the treats, Rebisco J

See, I don’t worry about my little boy having so much sugar intake and rotten teeth.  I enjoy Vita Cubes myself J

Vita Cubes is available in all leading grocery and supermarkets nationwide.

Yakimix Macapagal

October marks Papa Leo’s birthday – and because of that, the Familia Nunag had another chance to have a foodie blast.   We celebrated Papa Leo’s birthday at Yakimix Macapagal branch.

A lot of you is very familiar with Yakimix since it is famous for being a smokeless grill restaurant.  They have a lot of branches but we decided to try the one at Hobbies, Macapagal because they have an on-going promotion that would last until the end of October. 

Since this branch of Yakimix is I think the least popular of all because of the location, we were able to book a group of 7 people just a day before we actually dined in.  The location of Hobbies Macapagal is not difficult to find though.  If you are familiar with Seaside Macapagal, that the same location of Yakimix Macapagal.

We arrived just in time for the grace period for reservation.  We were seated ASAP.  The area is not so big, but is really comfortable. 

Check out the different photos of foods that were offered during our visit.

There is just one flaw when we were there.  The grill in our table was malfunctioning.  When everyone was enjoying their meals, we were just trying to light up our grill.  The restaurant staff tried fixing our grill for 5 times before it actually worked.  We were already losing our patience because we kept on asking for staff to fix the grill.  They offered to transfer us seat (after the 5th time they “tried” to fix the grill). 

Ang salarin.

Good thing that aside from grilling, there are cooked foods we can eat while we check if the fire is still burning in our grill.  With a nice ambiance, courteous staffs, and delicious foods, sans the faulty grill, Yakimix Macapagal is a place we would love to go back again.

And we don't want the faulty grill (or lpg or starter or whichever fault is that) dampen our spirits.  We still had a good time, we ate a lot, we catch-up with stories, and we laughed so much.  Family bonding is best done with good food and good talk J

Our happy family J

Press Release: For a More Alive Liver - LIVERMARIN

Euromonitor reports that Filipinos are the third heaviest drinkers in the world.  While many Pinoys may think of this as a distinction to be proud of, doctors would disagree.  As, too much alcohol consumption is one of the leading causes of liver disease.  While it is difficult to avoid alcohol as it is a huge part of our culture, we can guard our livers with the right supplement – LiverMarin.

LiverMarin is a dietary supplement containing 250mg of Silymarin or Milk Thistle, and 100mg of Sodium Ascorbate. Milk Thistle’s active ingredient “flavonoids” break down into 2 main components, Silydianin and Silychristin, which together form Silymarin – a supplement found in LiverMarin that is known to have the potential to protect your liver by acting as an antioxidant, endorsing the growth of new liver cells while preventing liver damage. It also prevents cirrhosis, or scarring of the liver, which is an irreparable damage that causes you to have a deteriorated immune system.

Regular intake of LiverMarin may also help in digesting fat that aids in the treatment of fatty livers, preventing and treating hepatitis A and B, managing SGPT and SGOT levels and insulin overproduction. However, this is not a medicinal drug and should not be used to treat the symptoms of any disease.

It is recommended to take 1 capsule 3 times a day before meals, or as prescribed by your doctor. Treat your liver right, take LiverMarin every day. At SRP P9.oo a capsule, LiverMarin is an affordable way to protect your liver.  LiverMarin is available at leading drugstores nationwide.

Press Release: AjiPanda: Your Best Friend in the Kitchen

AjiPanda is a charming panda icon that conveys someone shy, caring, happy and loyal.  It personifies how a humble pack or bottle of AJI-NO-MOTO® Umami Seasoning fills the role of “Your Best Friend in the Kitchen” by offering an ever dependable way of bringing out the natural goodness of food.

Ajinomoto’s new campaign, which features teen queen Kathryn Bernardo, presents the benefits of its reliable brand of seasoning to a new generation of food lovers and cooks.

AJI-NO-MOTO® comes from sugar cane, corn, or cassava and is manufactured through the natural process of fermentation. This product is effective, convenient, and safe in making food taste delicious. 

This is because it is simply free glutamate, the most common among amino acids (the building blocks of protein).  It provides the taste of umami to food in the same way that sugar adds sweet taste or salt adds salty taste to food.

But what is umami?  Umami, is the fifth basic taste alongside sweet, salty, bitter, and sour.   It is the savory, rich and full taste we often experience in meat, seafood, cheese, tomatoes and mushrooms. 

Consider the delightful composition of chicken, green papaya and malunggay in tinola or the medley of cheese, ham, pepperoni, and tomatoes, green and red bell peppers on top of a pizza. The combinations and layers of these glutamate-rich ingredients make dishes very delicious and enjoyable.

Remember that AjiPanda™, your best friend in the kitchen, will help work wonders in your cooking so that you can share many happy meals with your family.  For delicious and healthy recipes, visit:

Happy Birthday, Papa Leo!

It’s been 10,585 days since the world welcome a person like you.  

Someone so tough in protecting his love ones but gentle in taking care of them.

Someone so proud in his son’s achievement, but humble in his own success.

Someone so great who can encourage other people.

Someone who can love other people more than he can love himself. 

Someone so smart in his own right, but brings glory back to the Lord.

Someone who has a heart so great and so loving who made me believe in #forever.  (charot!)

Thank you for always protecting, taking care, and loving us!  We love you too <3

A Fun Family Day at Nuvali

Nuvali is a big place.  We’ve been here quite a few times already but have not really appreciated the place because all we do is eat as a family and then go home.  But one fine Saturday, we were able to visit this place without rushing. 

We initially went to Paseo Sta. Rosa, a shopping district just 5 minute drive from Nuvali because we entered Sta Rosa from SLEX, and this area comes first.  We roamed around but we didn’t stay long.  If you are planning to go shopping for branded items, Paseo is a good place for you.  It has a lot of outlet stores of branded apparels, and most of them (some 70% of the goods) are on sale.

After a quick tour at Paseo, we went directly to Nuvali. 

We went to feed the Koi fishes.  Neo had so much fun doing this.  The fish feeds are available at a small kiosk costing Php15.oo per pack. 

Can you see all those orange things in the pond?  That’s all Koi fishes!  And its just one part of Nuvali.  It’s an invasion! Kaloka.   And they’re all hungry. 

Then we walk and roam around the area.  You can ride a boat (not sure for how much), which will tour you on a small man-made lake.  Or ride a bike.  We wanted to try this with Neo, but I don’t think they offer small bikes for kids as rental.

We just contented ourselves in sitting in the small park-like area along the man-made lake.  It was so refreshing.  But you need to bring your picnic mat or blanket.  The grass gets itchy at some point.

Bumming about.

Then we went to Solenad 3 looking for the Kidzoona, Nuvali.  We want Neo to try it but during our quest for Kidzoona, the little boy got distracted by this playground.  It sits in the middle of the newly opened Ayala Mall and it's rubberized (just like Middle Road Children’s Playground in HongKong).  So Nice. 

Can you spot Neo?

Mama and Papa just sat in one of the benches while Neo had so much fun playing with other kids.  This boy is really sociable.  It was a really fun family day, and we’d love to go back at Nuvali again, just bumming around.

PS:  We were able to locate Kidzoona and was astounded that the line for this play area is too long.  Apparently it is so famous for kids and kids-at-heart.

Neo Invades Art in Island

One of the activities Neo and I did during the Jolly Cow Mommy and Kid’s Day Out was visiting Art In Island.  Art in Island is a two-story building located in Araneta, Cubao featuring 3D art.

Upon entrance, you will be asked to remove your shoes.  There is a shoe counter where you can deposit and leave you shoe.  We were advised to bring socks but you can roam around without one.

Art in Island is a place any photography enthusiast will love.  The whole place has nothing but art - 3D art to be exact.  I think this place has more than 50 different 3D arts you can pose around for pictures. 

My angel. 

This place is a good bonding place for the family.  Kids and kids-at-heart will have fun posing and goofing around different 3D arts.  Though I think, and would suggest, you bring kids 6 years and up so they can really appreciate the place.   Neo loved the place, but there are arts that scare him.  So the pictures of him are on arts he likes only. 

It was the little boy who took my photos in these pictures. J

Art in Island is open Tuesday to Sundays from 930AM to 930PM.  Admission Fee is Php5oo for Adults and Php4oo for Students.  They have birthday promos as well.  And if you want to go back, you can keep your tickets to get 50% discount when you return.
