Tefal Spherical Pot Rice Cookers with 35 cooking functions

Image
With rice being our staple food here in the Philippines, no wonder that at a young age most of us learned how to cook it. From the traditional clay pot where it was used to be cooked then to our trusty "kalderos" at home, It takes the right amount of water and just the right flame to cook the rice and if you weren't lucky enough, you'll either toast the rice or it will end up uncooked.

Nowadays you do not need to undergo years of training to cook rice in a right manner, all you need to do is rely on your kitchen buddy rice cooker and it will do the job for you.

Rice cookers have already surpassed its sole purpose and have become a versatile kitchen appliance, aside from cooking, some find it perfect for baking, cooking viands, and many more.

ZOOMOO SEEKS TO RAISE YOUR KIDS’ AQ

Image
Most kids today so well-versed into devices like TVs, tablets, and smartphones well before they can even ride a bike. Technology can be part of a healthy childhood, as long as this privilege is not abused. While it is very tempting for us parents, to simply give them their tablets while we finish important task at home, realize that in the end, this can highly affect your kid’s behavior. Kids who view violent acts on TV are more likely to show aggressive behavior, and to fear that the world is scary and that something bad will happen to them. Teens who play violent video games and apps are more likely to be aggressive. Characters on TV and in video games often depict risky behaviors, such as smoking and drinking, and reinforce gender-role and racial stereotypes. That is why it is so important for parents to monitor their kids' screen time and set limits to ensure they are not spending too much time in front of a screen.

Parents and guardians need not to fret because ZooMoo provid…

5 Ways to Create The Most Meaningful Summer for your child

Image
School year is about to end, so aside from the long awaited vacation of our kids, we as parents always wanted to make sure that our kids will have a meaningful summer vacation. When I was a kid I remember freely running in our backyard and playing with other kids and that is where I develop my social skills and exercise my sportsmanship in different games that we played. The entire duration of my vacation during my childhood were spent in playing with friends outdoor, household chores, visiting my cousins or relatives who lived far from us and ofcourse watch my grandmother cook our favorite dishes for me to learn her craft.

Generation may pass but kids nowadays still need to develop their skills, hobbies, socialize and enhance whatever talent they may have, so aside from going to the beach or spending the whole day in front of the computer it would help if we introduce our kids in other activities that they can unleash their hidden talents and at the same time help them improve their…

A car can breakdown and be easily fixed by a car shop. You will care less because Insurance got it covered. Typhoon tear-up your house, insurance to the rescue. But what about yourself?

What do married men want for Valentine’s?

Image
The typical Valentine’s day includes flowers, chocolates, teddy bears, heartfelt love letters and surprises – all efforts were mostly from a man, given to a very lucky woman. On the contrary, in Korea, women are the ones giving chocolates to men as a sign of love. Traditionally, men that receive these gifts will then give a gift in return on the following month to which they call “White Day”. This is a perfect way to let your man know that they too are indeed important on Valentine’s day.

This year, I decided to mimic this Korean tradition and asked married men on what they want to receive for Valentine’s day. Here’s what they had to say:


#8. Stove, cook set, tarp, sleeping pad – This sporty hubby is always on the go and is into mountain climbing. He and his wife always make sure to climb mountains at least once a month. Nothing is more blissful than awesome mountaineering stuff while enjoying the stars with your loved one.

#7. Crafting supplies – This daddy is into handcraft business. T…

If there is one gift that any woman would definitely cherish, then that would be the gift of motherhood. Not everyone has the opportunity to experience this so it should be a reason why we should be thankful for it.

An experience that allows her to see a real-time first gift ever from her baby. The Baby’s First Gift to you device detects the movement of the babies in the womb and translates it into an artwork.

“Expectant moms would be surprised to know that the baby’s brain is up to 25 percent developed already, by 28 weeks. By using the Baby’s First Gift technology, moms will be amazed by their baby’s development while in the womb since they will see how their baby’s movement can create artworks, uniquely created just for them,” said Ms. Jong Icasi…

Making reunions REAL again

Image
Filipinos are all about family. The mandatory family reunion happens not just once or twice a year, but every chance possible. From Birthdays to graduations all the way to the grand Christmas reunion, family gatherings are always filled with food, catching up, and loads of wholesome family fun.




Lately, we’ve seen many changes in traditional family dynamics — from a simple meal to dance numbers by the grandkids. Families are reaching out to friends and relatives abroad through technology. While technology can be used to connect people, it can also become a wall between family members.

How many times have you walked into a room and you are ignored by everyone hooked on their gadgets? This is the reality that has become the new norm. The simple act of truly connecting has become a valuable commodity that needs to be safeguarded by everyone in the family.

This Holiday season, a brand has decided to take action to advocate for real connections. It’s not asking you to completely give up yo…
