Glorious Coffee That's Good For You

My husband and I loves drinking coffee. In the morning, it is our bonding moment, to sip and eat bread and talk about our plans for the day. But recently, he was diagnosed to have Diabetes Type 2. So I abruptly cut his coffee from his system because he cannot take black coffee. He is really sad about it but I am trying to figure out how to incorporate coffee again in his system. For decades, coffee had received a bad reputation. Besides allegedly triggering high blood pressure, insomnia, and hyperacidity, the Filipino habit of adding lots of sugar and cream to one’s cup has been said to aggravate diabetes. While there’s no denying the Pinoy coffee fan his morning cup, there is concern over the amount of sugar present in commercial 3-in-1 coffee mixes. The leading brand has 14.6 grams of sugar in one 20-gram sachet alone. Imagine how much sugar you’re taking in if you drink an average of three cups of coffee a day. What About Sugar-Free Coffee?

Third Birthday Party Ideas

After several days of contemplation on what to do on my little boy’s third birthday in two months time I finally came up with three activities.  The concept of the activity was to tickle the curious mind of my toddler. As much as I would like to have a real birthday party celebration with a lot of kids and clown stuff I guess I would just save it up when he goes to school.

Ever since my little boy had his first birthday party in a resort he developed his love for babut (water). Even if it’s a bit redundant to celebrate his birthday in a resort at least we get to try and do resort hopping in at the same time. This time it’ll be more fun because little girl loved the water too! As for the resort, that yet I have to do a bit of research. I wanted something that is not so far from town and a child friendly one.

Another activity to do is a visit to amusement park and J and I agreed to take the kids to Enchanted Kingdom. I am sure he would love to try the bumped cars there as much I enjoyed it too.


Next is another visit to a zoo and I think it will be the Avalon Zoo. Even if he was scared the first time we went to see real animals in Manila Zoo, he began telling me to visit a zoo again. When I asked him to choose from babut, park and ammals (animals) last Sunday en route to our epic fail meet and greet with Barney, he chose ammals (animals).

Me : Baby, where do you want to go on your birthday? Babut, park or animals?
D : Uhm (pointing to his head as if he was thinking hard) Cars!
Me : Baby it wasn’t included in the choices. You only have to choose between the three. So which one is it?
D : Uhm, ammals!

At least he made a choice and he was really serious of going to another zoo as he was continuously asking me if we are going to a zoo. I guess I have to plan it properly so he would enjoy his three-part birthday celebration.

I would love to welcome suggestions for a child-friendly resort. Feel free to comment down below.

How did you celebrate you kids’ third birthday party? Share your thoughts.
