Locally Merci Buco

Locally’s Merci Buco coco water is the perfect drink for hydration. In fact, it has an average of only 40 to 50 calories across all variants and only 10 grams of sugar (for flavoured variants) and making Locally Merci Buco Organic Coconut Water variant even safe for diabetics! Locally Merci Buco is likewise free from fat, cholesterol, gluten, and GMO.

Locally Merci Buco also has electrolytes. Fitness and sports enthusiasts know for a fact that sweating it out leads to an electrolyte imbalance in the body that may affect muscle contraction and heartbeat functions. Having Locally Merci Buco coco water as a post-workout drink will replenish major electrolytes lost after you exercise.

But if you’re not into fitness or exercise, but just want something to hydrate you when you feel like your throat is in Sahara Desert mode, or if you’re simply bored with plain, old water, then grab a 330ml or 1 litre pack of Locally Merci Buco and chug away!

And unlike other juice drinks that are made from concentrates, Locally Merci Buco still has the natural health benefits of coconuts, such as being a good source of potassium, calcium, and magnesium. Coco water also helps the kidneys function well and reduces high blood pressure or hypertension by improving blood circulation. It can also soothe an upset or inflamed stomach or mild gastrointestinal infections, and help regulate bowel movement.

Don’t panic, it’s organic! Locally Merci Buco is the only coconut water in the Philippines certified by both the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) 1 and EcoCert2 - international regulating bodies that are strict in accrediting organic products. This means that you are assured of the 100% organic drink’s quality and integrity, with ingredients grown without the use of icky stuff like pesticides, synthetic fertilizers, sewage sludge, GMO, or ionizing radiation.

On top of all these amazing health benefits, Locally’s Merci Buco adds to your delightful drinking experience by offering two unique Pinoy flavors—Buco Pandan and Buco Lychee.

Now, stretch those muscles and go for a run towards your nearest Rustan’s, PureGold, and Robinsons supermarkets and grab a pack of Merci Buco. Also available in the US and the Middle East, if you feel like exercising towards there as well.

Honestbee, making life easy

Going through motherhood is never easy. Being a hands on mommy, time is so precious that I have to make wiser decisions on how am I going to spend it. Today, I find delivery services essential to my life just like my new best friend. 😊

First Lazada, for I can search almost everything. Mostly for my baby needs etc. Then, Food delivery services such as Foodpanda and Good Food Vegetarian, if I'm too busy with Baby Adi and I have no time to prepare for our lunch or dinner they're the one who saves me/us from hunger. And just recently, I'm so happy to get to know about Honestbee.

I love doing the groceries, I find it very therapeutic. I used to go through all the aisles trying to look for great deals, checking for nutritional facts, prices and the expiry dates. That was before I became a mom. Now, it's such a hard task even if the grocery store is just so near from our place. Imagine bringing my baby in a stroller to the grocery store all by myself, there were times we're unlucky to find ourselves in a long queue at the counter.

There's this one time, Baby Adi got very hungry during our queue at the counter. I breastfeed her by the way. So, there she got hungry and started crying. I had to feed her first  before we can get home. Since the store didn't have an area where i can breastfeed privately, I just grabbed a seat somewhere there, cover then off to feed her.

Just imagine my agony and how much was time wasted doing the grocery alone.

And there goes Honestbee. Here's a brief background on how I came across Honestbee. Every night I kept on seeing Honestbee' s riders outside the grocery store. I didn't know what it was back then. Out of curiosity I googled it. I'm so pleased with the services they're offering. They offer groceries, food and laundry delivery services. I downloaded it from the App Store and tadaaaa! Groceries on my doorstep. Not only that, I was given P500% off my first transaction. It's just wow!

Thank you for making my life easy, Honestbee! 🐝😘

How to make vegetarian sushi

We have no professional kitchen set-up so we learn cooking and preparing food thru the food that we buy and eat. Today we decided to make some sushi rolls starting from scratch. This is easy vegetarian making our own version of sushi.

The rice we bought from Grace Mart

Bike and Save Money

When I go to office, I ride a tricycle who charges 30 pesos as a special rate, and that's one way.
But sometimes tricycle drivers rips me off and charges more, they say the charge is 35, sometimes 40.

Double the 30 pesos is equals 60 pesos and with this amount I spend everyday I can buy a meal.

So what if I save it?

...when I have a folding bike I got from Epson Philippines as a Christmas gift two years ago and I've been taking care of it a little bit.

Bodhi is now Harvesters Vegetarian

When I walked around Banawe (I walked because I knew Bodhi is in here)

I was lost in translation. I knew that if I will se Causeway the Bodhi is just around.

But now it's not. I just found out that the restaurant has now a new name.

Bodhi Banawe is now Harvesters Vegetarian.

Still at 878 Banawe St. QC


I learned today from Tita Eva of EAL Evolve mind and body wellness clinic that you can also get 'lamig' from exercise and from no exercise.

So I got to experience their ventosa plus alignment session and the feeling is painfully nice. It is still painful today as we celebrate Fathers day.

My Baby and My Broccoli

They say Breakfast is the most important meal but I'm not into eating heavy during breakfast.

So this broccoli soup is a perfect match for a toast.

And while eating I will be greeting a Good Morning to my baby Adi

Mother’s Day Gift

The gift of healthy ‘crowning glory’ fit for the queen this Mother’s Day

Cliche it may be, but there’s indeed a woman behind the person we are today. And that’s no less than her—our mother. We used to call her nanay, inay, ‘nay, mama, mommy or simply mom. Needless to say, she deserves more than that given the pivotal role she fulfills in rearing us from childhood to adulthood and possibly for the rest of our lives.

There may be opposing beliefs whether that greater maternal instinct is biologically predetermined or socially imposed, but everyone would agree that a mother is hardwired to love and care about the whole family, especially the children, all the time.

For better or worse, it’s always the welfare of everyone at home on top of her priority.

No wonder she’s an epitome of a doting human being that touches everybody’s life. So, it’s but right to honor and return all the favors she has done for us. And what a better way to do this than this Mother’s Day.

Still drooling over the ways on how to spend this time of the year again with her? Well, you may opt for the basics of gift-giving from simple trinkets to expensive items. But take note, your appreciation of her is not equated by the tag price of your present. It’s the thought that counts, as an adage says.

You may consider a set of hankies that will bring back the memory of her wiping out her tears of happiness upon knowing that she’s conceiving a li’l creature inside her womb. That’s you, of course. A loose yet comfy clothes shall make her remember that sort of a duster or preggy dress she wore in the laborious yet exciting “nine months” of gestation.

Why not a pillow that she could hug as tight as she embraced you after giving birth, or maybe a brassiere for protection of the very bosom she fed you with during infancy? A bed will bring to her mind your tot years when you started to crawl and roll over it freely.

Shoes are a girl’s best friend, too, like your mom. Either sky-high heels or flattering flats, there’s a pair to match every bit of her fantasy. For as long as it brings comfort to her feet, it's more than enough to reciprocate the ease you had when you took your first walk with her guidance back then. If it isn’t her thing, though, a flip-flop will cause her to think that she also disciplined you through the proverbial “rule of slipper” hit on your buttocks while you were growing up.

Much to her delight, a bling ring will be worthy of your dear investment to show your deep appreciation of her just like when she never failed to recognize you with a pat on the back for simple good deeds or a job well done in your lifetime.

Stuck for an idea yet? Here’s a simple but meaningful token of gratitude that for sure will make a big difference and, eventually, pull off a surprise for the celebrant herself: The NOVUHAIR 3-in-1 pack which includes the topical scalp lotion, herbal shampoo and conditioner. Yes, you read it right.

Still not convinced enough, why don’t you spray a liberal amount of NOVUHAIR topical scalp lotion onto your mom’s scalp and massage it for five to ten minutes. You may not even know that with such a plain gesture of yours, it can melt her heart as it reminds her of the past when she used to do the same thing while you were still young, either as a trick to put you easily on a slumber or merely a relief every time you got sick. Those caressing hands of yours, likewise, imbibe your act of giving back the “natural care from mothers” like her.

Whatever impression it may have on her, what’s tangible she could gain is that you’re giving her nature’s gift of health. NOVUHAIR Topical Scalp Lotion is so unique that it combines 19 natural herbs, essential oils and co-factor nutrients––all working synergistically to help address hair problems from growth to vanishing. This breakthrough product helps to rejuvenate, nourish and maintain the moist of her tress from root to tip, aids in stimulating the growth of her hair and helps prevent it from excessive falling, while improving the overall appearance.

More than anything else, NOVUHAIR 3-in-1 pack may be one of the most precious gifts that your mom could ever receive in her entire life. Well, she’s the most important woman in your life after all. Hence, she deserves to be treated like a queen with that vibrant, bouncy and shiny “crowning glory.”

NOVUHAIR 3-in-1 pack is beyond compare. So, don’t think twice to wrap it as your present for her this Mother’s Day and, if ever, for life. Head on to any Mercury Drug and other leading drugstores to get a dose of nature’s answer to hair loss.  For inquiries, call 413-6570 or 0922-8830575, and visit www.novuhair.com for more details.
