30 Christmas Gift Ideas for Men

It's the last two months of the year and many people are already shopping Christmas gifts for their loved ones. I really haven't started buying gifts. I guess I'm a last minute shopper. Actually, now is a good time to shop because there are lots of "Holiday Sales" in the malls. Even the online world has ongoing sales.



For the next few posts on this blog, I will be brainstorming on gift ideas for our loved ones. As a starter post, let's talk about gift ideas for the men in our lives. Have you bought a gift for your father, brother, husband or boyfriend already? What gifts do you suggest to give them?

Practical Advice for New Parents and a Free Gift - Babycare Videos for First-Time Parents


It's difficult to be a new mom or dad when you don't know how to be one.

When I married 17 years ago, I became pregnant 30 days after. On my fourth month of pregnancy, I traveled to Saudi Arabia to join my husband, who was an OFW (overseas Filipino worker).

I remember that I worried about one thing -- I don't know anything about taking care of a baby. I don't have any other family member there except my new husband, who also didn't know what to do.

After giving birth to 5, here are some Practical Advice for Soon to Be New Parents that I would like to share. I believe these will be very helpful to all new moms and dads.

5 Tips to Boost Your Immunity and Beat Stress


We're in the last quarter of the year - the BER months. Time really flies.

Lots of things are going on especially with the kids. My high schoolers are very busy completing their requirements for the second quarter. This week, all the kids will be having their second quarterly exams. It will be a busy week for me, too, as I still tutor my youngest for her exams. That's why, as I mentioned in my last blog post, I don't accept full time online work.

When the kids are under stress, there is the possibility that they will get sick. My daughter was complaining last week of headache and feeling weak. Well, it's primarily because she lacked sleep as she needed to finish lots of homework. So, it's important for us parents to make sure to boost their immunity.

How Can I Get Mobile Internet Without Spending More?

The Why

I've been thinking in the past month if it is wise for me to get pocket wifi. O, I received a call from a sales agent, but I declined to get a unit and subscription.

I know other people will die (an exaggeration, of course) if they couldn't go online. They connect to the internet everywhere they go. But I'm not like that. My smartphone is not high tech because I mostly use it for call and text.

So, why do I want to get mobile internet? It's just for the purpose of preparing for an emergency. As an online freelance writer working at home, I rely a lot on good internet connection at home. But sometimes unexpected situations happen.
