Rebranding an old Blog

I was surprised to learn that I have this blog ages ago. And I decided to embrace the #momfluencer hashtag as a description of what life has made of me and what I was doing for the last 20 years of my life.

So I am now rebranding this blog and relaunching it too to share my stories about my experience with brands, destinations, attractions and food.

So I appreciate if you stay with me longer and join me in this mom journey. I promise to share with you fresh content twice a week so I appreciate if you subscribe to this blog and let me know your thoughts in the comment section.

Many observers said, Cojuangco’s announcement wa…

The Taal Volcano is believed to be the smallest volcano in the world. Its also located in the Philippines.

The best way to go to the volcano island and personally see its crater is through Club Balai Isabel in Talisay Batangas.


Club Balai Isabel Batangas should be your next destination. It has all the great things needed for a complete summer getaway. Nestled along the coast of Lake Taal, this first-class resort offers a wide range of exciting activities for the family, for the barkada, for the team and for organizations big or small.

My daughter and I, together with fellow bloggers stayed in a villa a few steps near everything. From the restaurant to the pool, to the lake, it was perfect for a group of 10 or more.


We were  warmly welcomed by the staff and crew. Gave us refreshing welcome drinks after we toured  the club premises. Just looking at the pool beside the restaurant relaxes the senses and we stayed there until lunch time.

Club Balai Isabel served us a hearty lunch. A smoking…
