Celebrating Hubby’s Birthday

Just before we welcomed the month of October, we celebrated my husband’s birthday.

It was a working day so we just decided to celebrate it together by having dinner at a restaurant after work. His students, meanwhile, gave him a pleasant surprise (my husband teaches Grade 8 at the national high school).

Hubby with his advisory class this year.

The class gave him a birthday cake and balloons. But it was not only his present advisory class which did this. Those from his past advisory class also gave him balloons and a cake and then they also presented him with a tarpaulin with his photo along with their birthday greetings 🙂

We capped the day by eating dinner at one of the city’s recently opened (rebranded) restaurants. The staff overheard us that it was the hubby’s birthday and decided to perform a birthday song for him 🙂

We ended the day by eating out. 

We are truly thankful to God for another year of His love, favor and guidance over my husband. We know that His plans for him, for us are always for our good (even if at times, they may not seem so!). And we are also sure that the best is yet to come 🙂

Worry-free Travel with Malayan’s Travel Master

One of the things that my husband and I enjoy doing is to travel. And while traveling can be such an enjoyable experience, it also has its share of stresses and challenges. For instance, a good friend of mine recently went on an international trip and it took her almost a month (!) before she got her luggage! Thankfully, we have not undergone such an ordeal in our travels within the country as well as internationally. But I would say that the bottom line is really to consider getting a travel insurance: #InsuretobeSure!

Insure to be sure is a good reminder from Malayan’s Travel Master. This travel insurance is a comprehensive travel insurance for you and me. One must take note that it is Schengen Visa-approved (hello there to everyone whose planning to apply for a Schengen visa soon, you will need this!), it’s available in dollar or peso policy and of course, it provides international travelers’ emergency assistance.

Malayan’s Travel Master Insurance coverage specifically includes the following: personal accident, emergency medical treatment, personal liability, recovery of travel expenses, travel inconvenience benefits as well as travel assistance benefits. But that’s not all. Malayan’s Travel Master also has value added features: free insurance coverage for damage to rented cars, medical treatment and assistance services for accidents resulting from sports activities. As accidents and emergencies do not only happen when you and I fly, Travel Master also provides insurance coverage for travel on ships, trains, and cars! Now, that’s what we can really call as the complete package! It’s all about worry-free travel and enjoying peace of mind on your trip with family and loved ones.

One more thing that I must to mention here is that it is not complicated to avail of Malayan’s Travel Master Insurance. While you may also contact their agent, be aware that you can also purchase your policy online! You can also find a lot of the information you need from their website. You can also visit their social media sites:

So here’s to safe and enjoyable travels to us all!

3 Questions to Ask Yourself When You Purchase a Family Car

Sponsored post.

So you’re considering getting a new car. Or more specifically, a family car.

Buying a car whether a new or used one requires a lot from the family budget so it certainly is a good idea to think about it well before you make the purchase.  So to all women and mothers in the house, here are 3 things to consider asking as you make that decision for the car.

  1. Who’s driving? Are you the one driving most of the time? Or perhaps your husband or an older child would also be driving? The car should fit your needs and preferences then if you are the one who would be behind the wheel all or most of the time behind the family car. But if other members of the family will also have their time behind the wheels, then their preferences should be considered, too.
  2. What are the car’s features? Think about the safety features of the car as your kids will be riding with you. But don’t stop there, in fact, check every feature of the car you have in mind for the family. Do your research. Visit several car outlets and dealers. Know that you can also do your research online. Cars.com can provide you the details and information you need. The site even provides car costs as well as helpful car reviews and videos.

  3. Am I aiming for a new car or a used one? As you consider the car features and your budget, you also need to weigh in if a new car or a 2nd-hand one is the choice for you this time. Getting a new one would be great but would it fit your budget? If you’re getting a used one at a cheaper rate, are you sure it’s worth the savings in the long run?

Buying a family car is a decision that will mean more mobility and even more fun for the family but it will also mean financial cost for you, your husband. Do your best to make sure that you have made the right choice.
