Watch Domex’s “Fiesta” video and support the “One Million Clean Toilets Movement!”

The typical scene during fiestas would be people crowding in the streets, drawn by the sound of a marching band, eager to see the "star" of the celebration. In this  Domex video entitled "Fiesta" however, the "star" was neither a movie celebrity nor a politician,  it is an unlikely, yet very much welcome sight—a new, clean toilet facility. The "Fiesta" video shows how underprivileged Filipinos welcome the “arrival” of clean toilet facilities in their communities. “The video aims to make ... [ Read More ]

Have you set your Christmas budget yet? (with a Holiday Planning Printable!)

christmas budget

I truly love Christmas. I love how homes transform beautifully in Christmas themes. I also love the view in the streets, the sounds, and all the other activities that come along with it. But I admit, it's also the time of the year that I have the tendency to overspend! Hence I need to set a BUDGET. So tonight, I'll finally be discussing our Christmas Budget with my husband (I hope It's not that late, we usually do this 2 months ahead). We already need to agree on how much (or little) we can ...

As planned, the boy wanted to celebrate in school. But since my confinement was prolonged and wasn't sure if I would already be discharged on his ... [ Read More ]

Before giving the gift to my niece, my boy and I tried changing the diaper of the baby doll at home (some sort of showing him how it's going to be like when his sibling on ... [ Read More ]

My surgery while pregnant

I WAS already dressed in hospital gown ready for my surgery at around 9:30 in the morning of October 14th. I was then on the 16th week of my pregnancy and my OB-GYN said it was the optimum time to have the surgical procedure to remove my bilateral ovarian tumor. My husband held my hand and in a very gentle voice he said, "Don't let your fear defeat you. Just surrender everything to the Lord and everything is going to be fine. You and our baby are going to be safe... I'll see you later." Then he ... [ Read More ]
