Sam’s Corner

I couldn’t resist writing about my daughter Sam’s first website.  With the help of Mommy Dea and Tito Dexter Gamboa, Sam’s Corner, now has its very own home.  It used to be that it can be found in one of my websites, Everything By Me.  But this year, we have decided to give it a more permanent home.

By the time of this writing it has already 93 likes in her Facebook page.  That for me is simply amazing!  I am overwhelmed with joy for the overwhelming love and support from family and friends.

Samantha’s Keepsakes Online Store of Brand New, Almost New & Pre-loved Items

Last December 2013, my son and daughter, for the first time  were able to go visit the United States with me.


We enjoyed every minute of our three-week stay  not to mention shopping for many things.


As a result, I was even able to buy things that in my mind will be liked by some of my friends.


We’ve updated Samantha’s Keepsakes and you may want to just simply go to there and start your bag shopping!

The Road to Good Health Part 2: Core Training

Then and Now

Then and Now

A few months after I started Zumba I felt that I needed to add something more to my exercise regimen. Though my weight lost had reached double digit proportions there are still some parts of my body where the fat or the sagging of the skin folds still occur.


And then I met up with an old College friend, Dra Maricar San Buenaventura, who may I say is simply gorgeous until now.  I asked her about her secret and she told me, “Very simple.  Core Training.”  If it was that simple then I want that, too.  So I asked from Dra. Makay as we fondly call her, the contact number of this Core Trainor.

Super Mom : Tale of A Modern Day Heroine

Our second featured mom, for this back-to-back update, is no stranger to life’s hardship.   She became a single-parent to her three sons Miguel, Vince and Ryan in 2004.  As if this wasn’t enough, in 2011, her mom suffered aneurysm.  This too, had put an extra toll on her emotionally and financially.  How she is able to weather the storm head high by God’s amazing grace and her undying faith will surely inspire anyone.  Let’s welcome Mommy Cathy Chua-Ruiz to Mommy Guide, Inc.!




The Road to Good Health Part 1: Zumba

Then and Now

Then and Now


“Fat, black, bulk in a wine barrel room . . .” These words kept popping in my head for quite a while a few months after giving birth to my second child – Jose Luis.


This was a line from a group presentation we had way back in High School called “The Congo.” For a while, I felt like the Congo.  I can laugh about it now but being on the heavy side brought new problems I never experienced before. My knees kept buckling-down on me when I walk.  I find it hard to climb up stairs.  My clothes no longer fit. And there were only 2 local stores I can go to that would carry my new dress size.
