Wills+Harry:#cutiemic #ootd

Yipee Yamisweeters!

Hi yah all! This post is some sort of stress reliever.  My kids do their poses and sweet smiles for a photo snap because they know that it will make me happy.  That's why every sunday when going to church, I have my DSLR with me to practice photography.  I want to share cutieMic's OOTD.  

I am falling in love with the colourful clothes I got from Wills+Harry Clothing which is available at Robinson's Dept. Store.  My boys are in tween size and I found it in Wills+Harry.  They have a thick cool texture, fashionable and stylish that make my cutie a like a "little man".  It's my favourite buy lately for my kids.  They got the perfect fit and sizes for my tweens with affordable prices.

I love his wink-y smile!

I'm puzzled with his facial expression here.

What a lovely stare

His heart-melting smile

My young man!

According to the salesman, these clothing are locally made but uses imported materials.  Maybe the clothing company is inspired by Prince Harry and Prince William. Hehehe! Just an observation, I have no basis.

For Moms out there, if you want more choices for comfy and fashionable clothing for your tween boys, look for Wills+Harry.  It's a perfect choice! I think it's available in leading department stores.

Money Principles

Check out this awesome info graphic about Money Principles Kids should Learn.  It is applicable not only to children but also to us adult.  It's true that one of the best thing that we can teach to our child is financial literacy.  And here are 10 principles about money.

My Love for Tea and Beyond

Hi there Yamisweeters!

It's a productive day for me today because I was able to send my reports on time and stress-free.  Time management is the secret.  Oh well! How great thoughts became action with awesome result.  Planning and focus are the major thoughts everyday so I'm relaxed and fulfilled.  My day gets better with a TEA.  I love tea!  It helps me in several ways.
My favorite Pure Peppermint Tea

I'm so paranoid with my health because of my family's experience with diseases.  I want to keep healthy, as everybody wants, to enjoy life more.And tea is one of my healthy intake.

I have wrong notion about tea then.  Whenever I drink, it heightens my hyper acidity.  But then I learned that I should only take it when my stomach is full.  From then on, tea became my metabolism booster.

It is best serve with honey instead of sugar

I'm so lucky enough that an office mate brought a pure honey syrup from the Province of Marinduque.  Special thanks to Maylene, a most humorous person I've ever known because of her comical stories everyday.  She always spare a bottle of honey every time she visits her home town.  How fortunate I am to have a friend like her, because pure honey nowadays is so rare.  Pure honey is an all-purpose thingy in my fridge.
Back to tea................ it also helps me maintain my healthy weight because tea interfere with fat formation in the body plus it is calorie-free. White tea is an anti-oxidants that can fights cancer and help us look younger.  Because it contains high polyphenol count which inhibited wrinkle production by strengthening elastin and collagen(Source:Huffingtonpost).  In my experience, it helps me reduce stress level because of the aroma that soothes my brain.  I also love it because it keeps me hydrated that contribute daily body fluids. Plus, I learned also that green tea may help me see better because it positively affect the tissues of the eyes related to retina.   And I really need that.

After drinking a cup of tea, I can rest well while reading.

Or enjoying the view of green-y front yard while drinking a cup of tea. Oh yeah! I love the space and the breeze.

Just sharing some thoughts.

I love Boracay!

As a photography hobbyist, visiting new place is such a "kilig" moment especially when it is Boracay.  Why???? Simply because it is photogenic.  I love the sky, the sand, the sea, the sun and the sexy humans walking on the beach.  So even I have limited time to capture its beauty I still managed taking some from our Boracay's Adventure.  Traveling with kids is no joke because you have to attend to them all the time.

Enjoy browsing some of the landscapes I captured from our visit. I wish I have wide-angle lens.hihihi!

The sun is so bright, look at the shining water!

Boat sailing on the sea is such a beautiful scene here!

Blue sky is LOVE!

View from Mt. Luho

That is the crowded Boracay Island

Mountain is so refreshing!
White, blue and green!  The island is filled with colors.

For my kids, Boracay is LOVE!

From white sand to clear water, I'm falling in love!

Sea Breeze is so sweet!

We sail! We move! We dream!

Colorful umbrellas added accent to the sea, oh i love colors!

Anytime during the day, boats are busy bringing tourists to the water sports of their choice

Souvenirs are creative

Waiting shed for water sports lovers

Ref Magnet forever!

Lanterns and native thingy are enchanting!

A lovers lane


Lifeguard for safety


The moon during daytime! So catching!!!

My shadow and the powdery white sand!
The beautiful sunset
A heart shadow

Peace and quiet
I hope you enjoyed browsing!

The Macs: Boracay Adventure

Hey everyone! We're here! The Macs are excited to share to you the recent adventure for Summer 2014.  We are lucky because I won a plane ticket and accommodation last Christmas.  So we decide to use it for our Boracay Adventure.  Thank you to Abosta(my employer) and our travel agency-Fiesta Tours and Travel for this wonderful experience with our kids.  I just added expenses for the two kids who were considered adult also.  So,  I spent a lot too.  Lol!  But anyway, it was such an exciting getaway for my kids.  We looked forward for extreme waters sports in Boracay. Yahooooo!!!! Super enjoy.  Here are our experiences, enjoy and be inspired to visit the very beautiful island Boracay.

It will be a photo overload. Enjoy browsing!

I just love to clothe them colourful outfits
They were so excited to catch our flight that made them 3 hours sleep.  Haaay!  Excitement!!!!!!!, what a feeling??????

We're so early to check in, excited eh!  We don't want hassle.

We boarded PAL Express more than an hour late. Huh!  It's true that this plane is always late. Haaaissst!

Welcome to Kalibo

We were booked Manila-Kalibo and vice versa because the Caticlan flight were fully booked last February pa.  Since it's a free ticket,  I have to agree and go with the plan trip for us. Hehehehe!  But, it's again another experience seeing Kalibo. Welcome to Ati-atihan town of Kalibo!

From Kalibo, we travelled to Caticlan for another more than an hour.  It's quite boring for my kids and hubby.  But I enjoyed the scenery.  I love the road along sea and mountains.

We rode a Southwest Bus from Kalibo to Caticlan safely.  Stop over is owned by Southwest too.  That's business thingy.

We arrived at Caticlan shore and waited for few minutes for our boat ride to Red coconut

We don't need to line up and wait for ferry to the island because it was arranged by Red Coconut. Cool!

Welcome to Red Coconut

 Deluxe Room

The Veranda

We're ready for adventure, walang pagod pagod sa byahe! haha!

Welcome drinks of Red Coconut

Noticed the blue sky???? So lovely!

Our first adventure

The Buggy ride, which I found it so hard to drive because no side mirror. hehehe!

Mic-mic found the ride so boring daw. hahaha!

We reached the peak of Mt. Luho.  The place where you can see the whole Boracay Island

My family! Stations 1-3 at our back

Photo snap after the Buggy ride

A jump shot after Zorb Ball experience

Mic-mic had fun here! 

Our second day, enjoying the free breakfast of the Hotel
Time to experience more

The boys love the beach soooooooo much!

All they want is to swim every time.

Enjoying the moment

Took some rest for a boat ride and more exciting adventure

The awesome speed boat ride according to Mic-mic

Acting lang, kunwari nag-jetski. hehehe!
They have the heart strong to try Parasailing
Marco was afraid when he was up but atleast he tried.
They never got to experience helmet diving and fly fish.  They should be at least 10 years old.  The reason why Marco got so disappointed. 

We tried Fly Fish

It's a muscle aching activity but fun....really fun! A must try activity!
Mic-mic is watching us.

The Macs Adventure

Kids love to swim, hindi nagsasawa

We roamed around the market which is so boring for kiddos

Ang lumot!  

Mic-mic called his Kuya a Ginger Sand Man

Thank you to my BFF for my outfit!

Thank you also to Jhaninay for my coloful coco cabana maxi dress!
Thank you Boracay

It was such a great experience for my kids.  They are begging to come back when they are allowed to do Helmet Diving, Ariel Point's Diving and Flying Fish.  I told them to provide separate money jar for Boracay because we need more money to enjoy all that.  They love the beach, the view and the activities.  I'm happy that they were able to experience the beauty of nature as early as now.

We love Boracay.

This vacation is also a celebration of our 10th Wedding Anniversary on April 17.  Cheers! For more years to come!
