Bago ako naging Misis, isa po akong Single Mother. Dahil may nabasa ako na nagtatanong sa isang group ng mga Nanay na ano daw mas maganda gawin, ipa-apelyido po ba ito sa Ama ng bata or sa Nanay na apilyedo ang dadalhin. Heto po ang opinyon ko base na din sa experience ko. Ang dalawa ko pong anak ay naka-apilyedo sa akin. UNKNOWN ang nakalagay sa details ng Father sa Birth Certificate ng mga anak ko. Ang panganay ko kasi, nghiwalay na kami ng tatay niya bago ko pa siya ipinanganak at alam ko na hindi talaga kami mgkakabalikan pa at wala din siya sa panahong nanganak ako. Kailangan andun kasi ang Tatay para ma acknowledge niya ang bata at makapirma siya dahil hindi naman kami ikinasal. Sa pangalawang baby ko naman, napagdesisyonan namin ng Ama niya na hindi siya ilagay sa birth certificate sapagkat hindi pa tapos ang annulment niya that time at ayaw din namin ng gulo. At sa kasamaang palad ngkahiwalay din kami noong 9 months old pa lang si Baby Girl kasi nagloko po siya. Hindi ko po pinagsisihan na UNKNOWN ang mga ama ng mga bata sa birth certificate nila kasi mas madali ang naging adoption namin ng husband ko sa mga bata. Yes, ng pinakasalan po ako ng asawa ko, sinabi niya sa akin na ibibigay niya hindi lang ang kanyang pagmamahal kundi pati ang kanyang apilyedo sa mga anak ko. Mas naging madali ang proseso kasi hindi na namin kailangan mgpaalam sa ama ng mga bata para mailipat ang apilyedo nila sa asawa ko. Kung isa kang single mother, hindi pa kayo kasal sa ama ng anak mo, pwede pong apilyedo mo muna ang dadalhin ng anak mo. Kasi kung sakali mang magkatuloyan kayo, madali lang ang pag papalipat ng apilyedo ng bata mula sa apilyedo mo papunta sa apilyedo ng totoong tatay nila. Ang kailangan niyo lang gawin ay pumunta sa munisipyo kung saan naka rehistro ang bata at i-acknowledge niya ito. Kailngan din yata mgpa notaryo sa abogado pero mas madali lang siya kaysa ilipat pabalik sa apilyedo ng nanay ng bata kung naka apilyedo na ito sa tatay niya. Isa din po pala sa advantage kung naka-apilyedo sayo ang anak mo, kung gusto mong magbakasyon sa ibang bansa o mag abroad sa ibang bansa pwede mong dalhin ang anak mo ng hindi na magpapaalam sa tatay niya. Lahat ng desisyon na gagawin mo para sa anak mo ay ikaw lang ang gagawa at wala ka nang pagpapa-alaman pa.
Shopee users found more ways to celebrate and reward themselves,
with 36 million vouchers claimed at Shopee’s first mega sale of the year
MANILA, 16 MAR 2021 – Shopee, the leading e-commerce platform in Southeast Asia and Taiwan, concluded a successful 3.15 Consumer Day, its first mega sale of the year. More people were able to shop and reward themselves with Shopee, with 5 times more items bought in the first 2 hours of 15 March compared to an average day. 36 million Shopee vouchers were claimed on 15 March, as users saved more on everything they needed.
With more users celebrating at 3.15, brands and sellers were able to easily connect with and engage them. Orders on Shopee Mall increased 5 times compared to an average day, as brands saw a surge in traffic to Official Stores. Local businesses also saw a boost in sales, powered by strong support from shoppers. In the Philippines, Rhian — a women’s apparel shop, WJF shops (grocerysale.no1 and no1.go) and albee_298 — all three offering home essentials and face masks, emerged as the top local sellers this 3.15.
Shoppers also celebrated 3.15 Consumer Day with Shopee all over social media, with over 2.6 million engagements recorded on Shopee Philippines social media channels during the campaign. Loyal Shopee users also won huge prizes with the #ShopeeCelebratesYou initiative on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, with loyal users surprised with cash prizes, latest gadgets, and K-Pop merchandise in the Philippines.
Martin Yu, Director at Shopee Philippines said, “We are happy to see more people find time to celebrate and reward themselves at our first 3.15 Consumer Day.

3.15 Consumer Day in the Philippines
In the Philippines, more shoppers were able to discover the joy of online shopping with Shopee. In particular, 3.15 Consumer Day gave users the chance to show themselves and others around them some appreciation.
Joanna Villanueva, 27, Fashion Designer, said, “This 3.15, I bought some necessities–contact lenses, socks, and an iPhone cable. I usually buy these things from Shopee because there are promos and discounts within the app so my savings are significant.
When the pandemic hit, I had a hard time going out and the shops I usually bought supplies from for my work closed down temporarily, but through Shopee, I was able to buy sewing materials. When I was moving into an unfurnished condo during lockdown, I bought most of my furniture and appliances from Shopee too! Electronics, accessories, skincare products, pet supplies, clothes—you name it, I’ve bought it from Shopee.”
Maricris Lorenzo, 35, Entrepreneur, said, “During 3.15, I bought home and self-care items — indoor pots, plant labels, shampoo, make-up brush set and load. For all these and pretty much anything I need, Shopee is my go to app since I can easily find items and order conveniently. I always wait for the sales to enjoy discounts, vouchers, and coins cashback that make my shopping spree wallet-friendly.
As a business woman and a hands-on mother, I am really happy to be able to do so much on Shopee. Paying our bills, buying business and home essentials, relaxing with the occasional retail therapy, and exploring the countless features of the app have brought me such joy and relief especially in the last two years.”

Surely, you still have a holiday hangover. There’s something about being able to spend time (albeit online or in small groups) with friends and loved ones in this cuddle weather that allows us to have restful minds and peaceful hearts even just for a moment.

I wasn’t much of a journaling person and was satisfied with simply writing my schedules on sticky notes. However, last year was highly toxic for me and I was in an identity crisis. When I was scrolling through Facebook, I saw an advertisement for the 2021 Journal and was intrigued with the design –the girl on the cover is beautiful and she looked confident. I liked the design, the content, and the marketing strategy so I decided to give journaling a try.

If you love hopping into the car and exploring the country, then you should consider getting a travel trailer. Staying in hotels can be expensive, and they aren't always available. To help save some money, consider getting a used travel trailer. Here are some things to look for to ensure you're buying a high-quality one.
Look For Damage
One of the quickest ways to ruin the excitement of purchasing a new travel trailer is realizing that something is damaged and doesn’t work. When you’re viewing the trailer, ensure that it is hooked up to electricity and test everything. Turn on the oven, open the fridge and freezer, and even go as far as to check the roof. If there is even a tiny hole in the roof, all of the elements will get inside the trailer. If you’re unsure about some potential roof damage, contact travel trailer roof repair Waco TX services to evaluate it before you finalize the deal.
Ensure Your Vehicle Can Tow It
You don’t want to buy the travel trailer only to turn around and find out that you now have to go buy a new truck because your current one can’t tow the trailer. Before you start looking at travel trailers, look at the maximum towing capacity for your vehicle. That way, you can focus only on trailer models that fall under that maximum weight amount.
If you ignore the towing capacity and hook a travel trailer that is too big for your car, you could cause serious harm or injury to yourself or those around you. Your vehicle’s transmission, brakes, and engine can only handle so much, and you don’t want to damage them.
Get the Right Size
When buying a new travel trailer, you want to ensure that you have enough room for your family. If you have six kids, you probably won’t fair well with a trailer with only three beds. Additionally, you’ll likely want something with enough storage for your family and your needs to help cut down on what you have to buy for your trips.

Nothing beats the feeling of a Power Parent when they witness their baby in their most active state. For each likot, kembot, and galawthat baby does, it instantly sends a rush of happiness especially at a time when everything around you seems out of control.
When active play and learning is encouraged, it stimulates baby for their next level of development. Babies also have a natural way of expressing their needs. Emotions and thoughts are voiced through movement. Similarly, babies are also always curious. When they see adults dance and sing to music, their natural reaction is to move to the beat. Dancing promotes body coordination, motor skills, and strength. It stimulates almost every area of baby’s brain, encouraging the cognitive development growth.
An active baby is a happy, and comfortable baby. When baby isn’t as active, it might be caused by uncomfortable triggers like rashes. That’s why Power Parents choose the NEW Pampers Pants with Rash Shield! The NEW Pampers Rash Shield protection is now powered by Lotion with ALOE! This helps babies have good skin and overall health, so they can be active and comfortable to kembot, any time of the day.
Only Pampers Pants can keep babies all-around protected from rashes because of the elevated skin health proposition, Rash Shield with ALOE ingredient, improved leak, skin protection cues and wider diaper perception, and new fresh aloe scent. Now, baby can dance freely and explore with Pampers’ improved protection from rashes and leaks.
Kembot The Rashes Away with the Kembot Nation!
Babies can’t help but to kembot to Pampers newest Kembot Nation jingle. Here’s a look at some of the exciting moves of the Kembot Nation and why you and your baby should join in the fun too.
Look at Mithi’s kembot moves! “Mithi can easily do the #PampersKembotNation challenge without that itchy feeling dahil sa bagong #PampersRashShield with Lotion with Aloe that’s good for her skin.” Power Parent Carlo Aquino shared on Instagram.
Even Power Parent Trina Candaza approves of the kembot effect the new Pampers Pants with Rash Shield with Aloe has. “Talagang napapa Kembot ang Mithi namin tuwing naririnig ang mga paborito niyang kanta habang suot ang Pampers Rash Shield with Lotion with Aloe!”
Being a dancer really runs in the blood according to Power Parent Dianne Medina, “Just like his Daddy @rodjuncruz, mahilig talagang sumayaw si Baby Joaquin! Go anak! He can do this because of his strong #PampersRashShield!”
Hopeful Power Parent Dani Baretto-Panlillio looks forward to the many dance moves that her baby Mill will show. “At least we have a potential dancer in the family! Hehe. Love dancing and just being silly with you, Mill. She can do this because of her strong #PampersRashShield!”
Nothing is stopping these babies with their kembot moves with the added improved leak & skin protection cues of Pampers. Now, Power Parents like you can also join the Kembot Nation and maki-kembot!
Colorado is full of sensational natural wonders, from the majestic Rocky Mountains to pristine Alpine lakes. Scattered throughout the state are wonderful opportunities to experience nature at its finest. Here are some of the top things to do when you visit Colorado on your next vacation.
If you enjoy being on the water, fishing tours Steamboat Springs CO are available. Locals are available to take you to the prime fishing spots, where you can try your hand at catching trout.
Rocky Mountain National Park is open year-round, which means you can experience a variety of natural wonders at any time. In the summer, hiking, camping, horseback riding and rock climbing are prime activities. It is the busiest time of year, so prepare for crowds. If you prefer winter sports, snowshoeing and skiing are available in the colder months. You may get to see natural wildlife, such as elk, deer and bighorn sheep while you’re there.
One of the top ski resorts in Colorado is located in Vail. This ski area has a vast amount of runs for all levels. If luxury skiing is a bit out of your budget, you can check into the towns of Breckenridge or Beaver Creek. Both areas still have plenty of ski trails without the hefty price tag.
If Native American history interests you, you can head over to Mesa Verde National Park. This park is home to the Cliff Palace, which housed the Pueblo tribe. Ranger-led hikes are available to the public and you can climb a ladder into the dwellings. Once you’re done there, you can take a scenic drive through the rest of the park to see some spectacular lookout points.
Experience the best of nature when you take advantage of the huge variety of outdoor activities scattered across the amazing state of Colorado.
Self-catering rentals, such as North Carolina coast rentals, are highly sought after. Check out this list of three benefits associated with acquiring a vacation rental.
1. Make Your Own Food
One of the downsides of getting a hotel room is that you usually have to order food from outside sources. Most hotel rooms do not have appliances you can utilize to cook meals. It can get expensive to constantly buy room service or grab food from fast food or fast-casual spots. If you stay in a holiday rental, you will have ample kitchen space; you can cook your own dishes anytime you want. Note that you can save a great deal of money by making your own food. You can even store the items you make in a refrigerator or pantry.
2. Ensure Your Privacy
Privacy in a hotel environment is not a guarantee. Some hotels have very thin walls, so other people in nearby rooms can hear your conversations and movements. It is worth mentioning that hotels nowadays are filled with security cameras in their hallways, elevators, and lobbies. If you are looking for a private getaway experience, residing in a hotel may not be your best option. Rentals are, however, extremely private since you and your family will be the only people staying in them. Some rentals are even situated in secluded locations.
3. Get More Space
Unless you purchase a very large suite, you will likely feel a bit cramped in a hotel space. Most hotel rooms only consist of a bedroom and bathroom. Some have living spaces, but many do not. In a rental, you will have the ability to enjoy sleeping and bathing spaces as well as cooking, dining, and living ones. There even exist rentals that have outdoor spaces, such as patios, that you can take advantage of whenever you please.
Rentals are a great alternative to hotels. Staying in them will prove to be worthwhile.
Banff National Park, straddling the line of Alberta and the USA border, is a park unlike any other. This park has something for anyone less expensive than other parks while still delivering on views, activities, and people. Living here is like taking a permanent vacation, and here’s why.
In Banff, you’re in a fishbowl of mountains. This mountain range stretches on seemingly forever and cradles rivers and plains in their midst. Because of this, regardless of the weather or season, the views are gorgeous. Snowy peaks that slowly turn entire mountains white are so beautiful it’s like being surrounded by postcards at all times.
Many take up hiking in all seasons so that they can take in the beautiful surroundings without having to move as fast as skiing or snowboarding.
The Full Seasons
Many think that mountain cities only have one season: snow. That’s not true! In the summer, temperatures reach a warm 22°C (72°F), which makes outdoor sports more fun and hiking even more exciting. Of course, winter hits hard with temperatures averaging around -30 °C (below -22 °F), but in between these two seasons, you get incredible weather. The mountain trees turn shades of orange and red in fall, bringing through autumn views more beautiful than anywhere else, and in spring, as the ice and snow thaw out, lush green mountains are revealed underneath.
New Interesting People
Because Banff is a tourism town, you’re guaranteed to meet new and exciting people every day when looking at Banff homes for sale. Without being as overwhelmingly commercial as most tourism areas, this national park offers visitors a touch of comfort and relaxation while giving residents the same thing year-round. Tourists can be exciting and fun, and living in an area that gets a lot of them means that you’ll never grow bored of where you live!
Good food is a must! Banff has unique, delicious restaurants like The Bison Restaurant, which serves up delicious Canadian classics while keeping itself affordable. There are a couple of chain restaurants for convenience and the comfort of recognizability. Still, the unique restaurants in the area are as exciting and memorable as those who live there.
Of Course, The Fun
You’ll never run out of things to do in Banff. Although it’s a relatively small national park town, there’s no end to fun and excitement. Of course, the area is famous for skiing and snowboarding. Winter sports are a fantastic way to get out of your comfort zone and enjoy some physical activity. On the other hand, there are also spas and retreats for those who would instead pamper themselves than run themselves ragged on a mountain.
