Appreciating Our Tireless Grab Delivery Riders this Labor Day

It has been more than a year that our country is in community quarantine. Within this duration of preventing the spread of COVID, we still try to adjust to the new normal like social distancing, wearing face masks and face shields, and some of us even started working at home to lessen the chances of getting sick. During the height of the pandemic, we relied heavily on Online Delivery Services to purchase our food, groceries, and other necessities, especially when my husband has been part of the skeletal workforce of their company and needed to stay at their office.  Online Delivery Services like Grab Food and Grab Mart served as the bridge of different businesses to consumers during the community quarantine, employing hundreds or more delivery riders in delivering essentials to households. Just like our other frontliners, these brave delivery riders deserve to be acknowledged. While browsing today, I saw this short video for Labor Day from Grab to pay tribute to the brave delivery part

4 Celebrity Moms Share Their #CertifiedMaDISHkarte Tips

  Are you ready to level up your cleaning game and try some #CertifiedMaDISHkarte tips? Clean homes don't just miraculously clean themselves and in the whirlwind of busy lives, it’s important to learn effective tips and tricks to keep your house clean and healthy. This includes making sure you’re more vigilant with the cleaning materials you use, as well as how you clean them. While we go above and beyond in disinfecting the things that come inside our homes, we must also give that same attention to the ones already inside. What’s one of the dirtiest objects in your house? It’s–guess what–that small squishy soft sponge you use to wash the dishes.  Some of the bacteria aren’t harmful and might just make your sponges smelly, but others could potentially make you sick. The worst part is it can contaminate everything it touches if left unsanitized–like dishes and utensils. Wash dishes like a pro and have that peace of mind that comes with knowing you’re not cleaning dishes with a germy

Tracing back my steps on how and when I started blogging

  It was more than five years now since I started my journey to blogging. I remember resigning from my previous job as a customer service representative from a local BPO (Business Process Outsourcing) to become a full-time mom for my kids. The adjustment was not easy as my body was still used to my usual routine when I was still working. Thankfully I was able to cope up after a month. During my free time, I usually read online blogs about parenting, beauty, and lifestyle. I remember following some pioneer bloggers back then who are now well-known influencers in their field. These bloggers inspired me to start my blog that focuses on parenting, food, and lifestyle. I decided to tell my husband about my plan and, I was able to get his support to start my blog "The Kitchen Mom by Dhess." My goal back then was to write my personal experiences about parenting and lifestyle, recipes of my favorite dishes that I prepare for my family, and a personal review of the places and restaura

Achieve cleaner indoor air with Sharp’s Plasmacluster Ion and unique Airflow Technology

The safety of our family is always our top priority. That is why a lot of us are investing in top-of-the-line security products to secure our homes from intruders. But did you know that intruders come in different sizes? Sometimes, those that we do not see, such as airborne viruses and air pollutants, are a bigger threat to your family's safety. We often ignore the importance of air quality, but when the pandemic started, it has become the main concern. Having good indoor air quality is an important part of living in a healthy home. Lacking it can bring two common health problems to your family: allergy and asthma. When you remove the airborne irritants in your place, those who suffer from allergies and asthma gradually find relief from their symptoms. Not to mention, more people now prioritize cleaner air because of the airborne viruses which may harm our family. Aside from that, even healthy individuals can also benefit from clean air. How? The benefits of breathing quality air a
