Soldier



If you are following me on Instagram (@mishrendon), you would have noticed a photo of Zack wearing a soldier costume. Anyway, here's the short background on why he was wearing such. I received a text message from Zack's teacher that he needs a costume of any community helper for their Friday activity. I am usually busy with school during weekdays and my classes end beyond mall hours so I asked my mom to buy him one. I asked her to get him a doctor or police costume and there was none at Toy Kingdom at SM Fairview! Luckily, she found a soldier costume (last piece!) at the department store and paid for it a few minutes before the mall closed.


This costume wasn't initially what I had in mind. I am not even sure if a soldier is a community helper. What I had in mind are doctors, teachers, firemen, policemen, and similar types of jobs. Nevertheless, I think Zack liked his costume. He wore everything without any hesitations, including the hat. Everyone in school liked it, too. Zack's ate told me that even parents of other kids were asking for selfies with him. I am not so sure anymore if I have a soldier or a celebrity in the making!

Doing the "Sir, yes, sir!"

At this point, I don't have any particular profession that I would like to impose on Zack. I don't think I would even want to impose anything on him. I've seen too many people in law school who lost their passion and drive because their parents wanted them to pursue something that they do not want. I do not want the same for Zack. The only thing I wanted for him is that he discovers his passion in life and he pursues it. And I'll be there to support him all the way. So far, singing (and dancing) interests him so I guess it's a good start for us. 


Anyway, this kid has probably gotten used to taking outfit photos that he voluntarily goes out of the door whenever I would tell him that I would take his photos. So I guess this means more photos (which are less blurry) for the blog! Hope you like this one. :)

#UFCColorCrazeeCatsup Makes Mealtime Fun and Colorful!



Zack has always been a picky eater. He used to have food allergies too back then so it was hard for me to feed him. Because of the limited food choices we had, we would usually give him the same viand almost every day and he would usually get tired of eating the same. Although his allergies with food are now gone, I let him eat whatever he wants while still trying to give him healthier food choices. Of course, I want him to enjoy mealtime! I want him to look forward to it, not because it satisfies his hunger, but because it is one daily activity where he could have fun.


One sure way of making our kids' mealtimes fun is by adding color to it. Thus, UFC Tamis-Anghang Banana Catsup, the leading catsup brand in the country and a household staple for over 40 years now, has finally launched a new product which would surely address that!  

Introducing new UFC Color Crazee Catsup! Your favorite UFC Tamis-Anghang Banana Catsup now made available in four fun, exciting colors: Bubbly Blue, Goofy Green, Yummy Yellow and Radiant Red.


It comes in a twist-cap and easy squeeze bottle making it easy for kids to use! Plus, you can even mix the colors to create new ones! Taste wise the young and young-at-heart are sure to love the fact that this is the same UFC Tamis-Anghang Banana Catsup blend, just in different colors. All ingredients are FDA approved and safe for consumption.

P58 for this cute box set that includes all four colors!

UFC Color Crazee Catsup is available in leading supermarkets nationwide for a limited time only. 150g singles are priced at P15.00  and P58.00 for the cute box set that includes all four colors.

UFC Color Crazee Catsup lets you add color to your food, and you’ll find creating edible art is a great bonding activity for the whole family.

DERMAX Laser Center Opens its 4th Branch at Ayala Fairview Terraces



Skin care has gotten more complex, innovative, and technological during the recent years. Maintaining a healthy and glowing skin no longer pertains to the face, but also to the rest of the body. Hence, there are now laser treatments, IV Glutathione treatments, and similar treatments that aims to keep the body smooth aside from regular facials to maintain a blemish free face. Personally, I got obsessed with underarm laser hair removal when I was in college. However, I was not able to finish the required sessions to achieve permanent hair removal due to various reasons. First, the treatment was too expensive for a regular college student. Second, there were no clinics that offer Diode Laser Hair Removal within the Fairview area back then. Luckily for me, a clinic that specializes on Diode Laser Hair Removal finally opened its doors at Ayala Fairview Terraces.

JORD Wood Watch in Ely Maple Review



 I couldn’t leave our house without a wrist watch. I believe that it is the only accessory we’ll ever need to assist us in our daily lives. Although most of our gadgets now adequately tell us the time, wrist watches are still the most convenient way to keep track of time. Moreover, wrist watches are also statement pieces. Wear an interesting timepiece and it would definitely be the first thing that people would notice in you. And to make sure that you stand out, there are several unique timepieces available nowadays which are made from equally unique materials, such as wood.

When I first heard about wood watches, I was skeptical about the whole concept. Based on the photos I have seen from local online shops, my main concerns were the finish of the product and the ease and comfortability in wearing it. My doubts regarding wood watches definitely were gone when I finally encountered JORD Wood Watches.

JORD Wood Watch in Ely Maple Review

JORD Watches is an online store based in the USA that offers hand-crafted wood timepieces. When I was offered to review any of the numerous products of JORD Watches, it is the Ely Maple Wood Watch that truly caught my eye. I personally prefer classy and timeless pieces, something that would last me for a very long time and would never go out of style, and the Ely Maple Wood Watch is all that.

Although often disregarded, the packaging is one important aspect in a product. It has the ability to tend or break it. And I was not surprised that JORD Watches was able to deliver and exceed my expectations. Their hand-crafted box was extremely beautiful and seems to promise that there is something more beautiful contained inside.

The watch itself was absolutely impressive. The finish was flawless and smooth. The details of the watch are impeccable – from the strap to the watch itself. It is evident that it was hand-crafted carefully to ensure its quality. I love how this timepiece also tells the date. The natural maple is hand finished and pretreated with tung oils. The Ely is splash-proof but should not be submerged in water (3 ATM). JORD also offers a limited warranty for each product for a period of 1 year from the date of purchase.

Initially, I was not really comfortable in wearing it because the wrist watch that I’ve been previously using has a flexible strap. But once you get used to it, you’ll be more comfortable to use it daily. This watch is very convenient to use because of its push button lock that opens and closes easily. By the way, you could have your watch adjusted by JORD by sending them your measurements so that it is ready to use by the time it reaches you.

The Ely Maple Wood Watch is definitely one classy statement piece that a person needs to have in his or her collection. It is perfect for a casual look and for everyday use. It costs $129 and I think that the product is worth it because of the awesome craftsmanship used in every JORD Wood Watch. It also comes in different colors such as Red Sandalwood, Dark Sandalwood, and Green Sandalwood with Maple.  JORD Wood Watches are offered internationally through their website and shipping is free worldwide.
