It's a BC Bloggers' Party

I'm joining the BC Bloggers' Party - a get-to-know party organized by Mommy Paula.  Bloggers who are joining are supposed to write a little something about themselves.  So let me share a few things about myself.

My friends call me Chin chin.  I'm a Christian stay at home mom with 5 wonderful kids - 2 boys (Emmuel and Yuan) then 3 girls (Kristel, Janel and Angel).  Ang dami no?  That's the usual comment I hear from friends.  I've been married for 10 years now, so if you do the calculations, I gave birth more or less every 2 years.  My family and friends are amazed at how I could take care all of 5 little children (ages between 1 and 9) all by myself.  You heard it right, without any yaya and no close relatives (we do not live in our home country).  I thank God for giving me a husband who is loving and supportive in taking care of the kids.  I also thank God for the strength and wisdom that He gives me everyday. 
This is our latest family picture - April 2010

I also homeschooled my first 3 children during their preschool years.  It was a very fulfilling experience being my children's first teacher literally.   However, the 2 boys had been going to private school for 2 years now, the next 2 girls will be joining them in school this June.  So, I'll be left with my bunso at home while the others are in school. 

I started my first blog Inspirational Life Quotes in July 2007.  That's when I was introduced to the concept of blogging.  I liked it and then started this blog by December of the same year.  However, my blogging activity dwindled when I found out I was pregnant with my 5th baby around May 2008.  I just became active in blogging again last year after giving birth to my bunso.  I have started 3 other blogs since then - Praise Memoirs, Sunday School Lessons for Kids and PeopleString 101.  Aside from blogging, I also joined HubPages 7 months ago and have already published 11 hubs.  Hope you can also visit my hubs. 

That's all for this post for the BC Blogger's Party.  Thanks for reading and may God bless you.

PS Watch out for the post about how the BC Blogger's Party went where you will meet the other BC Bloggers.

  15. whoaa!! Taking care of 5 children.. Two thumbs up to you Sis Chin chin...
    Before, i used to ask my mom if what are those secrets of taking caring of children, since malapit na akong maging mami also. She told me the word "Mom's instict" Sabi nya kasi you will know how when you get there. Kasi sympre you want nothing but the best for your children. And I think you are doing the same.

    God Bless Sis, Nice to meet you

What's the Best Shampoo For Getting Rid of Head Lice?

When my family was staying in the Middle East, my daughters had no problems with head lice or “kuto.” A head louse (lice, plural) is a six-legged parasite that feeds on blood in the human head. Lice do not jump or fly, but crawl only. They do not carry any disease, but they suck blood and cause itchiness. Here’s a photo showing the life cycle of head lice.


When we came back to the Philipines, I was taken by surprise one day when I saw my daughters

Which Brand of Electric Fan Do You Recommend?

It’s really hot now and it’s so untimely that one of our fans gave up on us. We only have 2 working.  Actually, since we came here in the Philippines 2 years ago, we’ve already bought 6 fans and I’m not satisfied with how they worked for only a short time.

We bought 2 Standard industrial stand fans, one broke in less than a year while the other one is still working. We bought 1 Union desk fan and this one lasted 2 years. Then, we bought 1 Dowell stand fan because of a sale but then it was defective within one month. We brought it to their service center, they got it fixed but then the entire head (with the fan blade) of the fan flew off (nasira ang hinang).

My PureIt Excella Water Purifier Review

Last December, we bought a PureIt Excella water purifier at SM Megamall. After almost 7 months of using it, I can say that it was a good decision.

Why Buy a Water Purifier?
CONVENIENCE.

That is the primary reason I wanted to buy a water purifier. With a portable water purifier at home, I don’t have to ask my husband or my sons to buy mineral or filtered water at nearby water vendors. I know there are free home delivery services, but I think having our own water filter is still the most convenient. No calling. No waiting. No hassle.

The only question is which brand of water purifier should we buy? It’s a good thing we discovered …
