No More Constipation With Dulcolax

I always thought that once a day of doing number 2 (pooping) is the normal and most healthiest way ever.  But Dr. Invan Olegario,  a product physician and a credible medical adviser of one of the most well known pharmaceutical firms in the country said more than once is the most healthiest.  It was just that people are so busy that they can only go to the toiled to move once a day.

Doing number 2 was discussed during the launch of  Dulcolax campaign the Starting Fresh Campaign which will involve celebrity Tuesday Vargas who will go around baranggays in the country to talk about constipation and how people can avoid it.

Why "Mars Needs Moms"

Teehee, its a title of a movie by Walt Disneys.  I think its super cool.  Here are some fun facts about making the movie and how you might want to take your kids to watch it so they will appreciate your presence!

Produced by the team behind “Disney’s A Christmas Carol” and “The Polar Express,” “Mars Needs Moms” showcases nine-year-old Milo’s (Seth Green) quest to save his mom (Joan Cusack) from Martians. What follows is a wild adventure in Disney Digital 3D™ and IMAX® 3D that involves stowing away on a spaceship, navigating an elaborate, multi-level planet and taking on the alien nation and their leader.
Get a load on some fun trivia below on the making of “Mars Needs Moms.”

The book 'Inspired'  — Berkeley Breathed is the author and illustrator of the book, “Mars Needs Moms.” The story was inspired by a particular moment of disagreement that took place between his son and wife. For the lead character, the book and film adopted the same name as Breathed’s son: Milo.
                  According to Breathed: “The movie would not exist if not for a single plate of broccoli left uneaten at the Breathed dinner table on August 10, 2006. That led a real Milo, 5, screaming The Unthinkable at a real mom, leaving her in tears... and leaving me to explain to a stewing son how he might feel if the mother he claimed he didn't love might suddenly disappear via -- I was grasping-- Martians. I wrote the book that night. Five years later, the real Milo will watch as kids around the planet will see the creative, happy, hopeful result of one of his life's darkest moments.”

How To Prepare Your Child On Their First Air Travel

This is a repost from my Earthlingorgeous.com my main blog and I would like to share the experience to all the mommy bloggers out there.

"December 25, 2008 was my daugters first air travel. We went to HongKong Disneyland for Christmas and she enjoyed it much. We were took Cebu Pacific rountrip and everything went well, we left the airport earlier than scheduled and got to HongKong a couple minutes advanced.

Honestly, I was expecting hell. With the high sensitivity to sights, sounds, and smell a child with autism (CWA) has in mind I was imagining how unbearable the sound of the compressed air inside the plane will be to her while we were suspended 300,000 feet above the ground. She might throw the nastiest tantrums out of her frustration.

Thank God everything went well, she did not have any major fuss or bad episodes that will annoy the other passengers.

Safeguard Hand Washing Campaign

Hi Mommies especially those I contacted to receive some kit from Safeguard.  Did you get your kits already?  What do you think?

If you still haven't its for a hand washing campaign of Safeguard to keep the awareness and the habit of everyone to wash their hands daily to stop the spread of disease-causing germs and virus.

Germs cause sickness. The more germs spread, the more sickness spreads.

In this season of on-and-off rain showers, the effects of germs are easy to see everywhere. And children are taking the brunt of it because their immune systems are not as strong as adults’, making them more susceptible to contagious diseases like colds, cough and flu.

To put a stop to the continuous attack of germs on children, frequent and proper hand washing must become a national habit. But here is where the problem lies. Despite the public’s knowledge of the benefits of hand washing, very few actually take the time to do it. Majority is convinced that covering their mouths with a tissue is enough to stop germs but the truth is, the only way to stop them is to kill them.

Safeguard wants to help champion hand washing and its benefits by convincing Filipinos to stop grabbing just tissues and instead start grabbing hand soap. One of its most recent efforts to forward this cause was the creation of a fictitious tissue brand called Sneeze n Sniffles.

This advertisement is no joke.  This is a call for new mothers by the SOS Children's Villages Philippines, a non-profit organization providing long-term, family-based care, education and shelter to orphans, abandoned and neglected children.

Children of SOS have traumatic background. Many were abandoned by their biological parents due to extreme poverty, while other were abused.  So the kids have the say in who they choose as their mother.

Since the SOS program started in the country, there is over 1,223 kids who have become integrated into the society with 807 of them still living in the eight SOS Children's Villages in the country.

Each mother will live with an average of 10 children whom they will raise as their own within a village of eight to 14 houses. Biological siblings will be kept within the same house.

So, if you have an open heart and open mind you might want to take this job?
