Printable Alphabet Dot Marker

Slowly, the Philippines is starting to lessen the community quarantine restriction so it seems that everything will be back to normal soon. But even though I’m fully vaccinated, I still try my best not to go out unless it is necessary. I am still not brave to explore the malls just to look for gifts for birthdays, anniversaries, or even this coming Christmas season. Thanks to online shopping, I can buy gifts even from the comfort of our home. 

If I don’t know what to buy, I create my own gift just like this Printable Alphabet Dot Marker that I prepared for my godson’s birthday. When my son was still in toddler years, I want him to do this dot marker activity but my problem is I don’t know where to buy the dot markers. But after I tried Shopee, Lazada, and Amazon last year (late bloomer) everything changed so now if I need something I just search and browse these e-commerce sites. 

For your information, there are so many benefits of dot marker activity like 

1. It improves the child’s fine motor skills, hand dexterity, and grip. 
2. It develops the child’s hand and eye coordination. 
3. It enhances color recognition. 
4. It encourages creativity and exploration. 

Since I was not able to do this with my son, I decided to make one for my godson. I purchased the Printable Alphabet Dot Marker here. The printable file includes Ai Source File, PDF file (ready to print), and PNG images. There are two pages that have typo errors so I contacted customer service about it so they can update the files. But I don’t have time to wait so I just corrected the two pages, added background colors, and personalized the pages. 

I printed the pages on 90GSM paper and trimmed them so they would fit my A4 laminating film. Lastly, laminated the pages so it won’t be a one-time use activity. You can buy more dot markers so there are more colors but unfortunately when I bought the dot markers, limited colors lang. Ayaw ko naman ng dark colors. Anyway, this activity is flexible, aside from dot markers, you can use stickers, pompom balls, or any stuff that will improve the fine motor skills of your child.

DIY Stained Glass Ornaments

For the past several years, I tried to DIY some of our ornaments and I just felt happy whenever I see those ornaments, it reminded me of the past. It is nice to remember the story behind those ornaments especially those times when my son still helps me. When my son hits puberty, he is not fond of crafting anymore. Anyway, sharing our past DIY ornaments for the past several years. 

This year, I’ve made Stained Glass Ornaments using Cricut Maker, acrylic ornament, vinyl sticker, silver glittered cardstock, and Sharpie pens. I got the SVG file from @makermaine. 

Cutting is easy but weeding these designs is not a joke. It really needs a lot of patience and determination. Lol, I felt motivated to continue when I finished weeding one design. It took me several hours to finish weeding including my failed stickers. 

The second challenge is, I have very limited Sharpie pens, I only have few colors to choose from. I almost stop this project because I wanted to order more Sharpie pens but I realized that it will take more days before my order will arrive. Baka abutin ako ng Pasko bago pa ako matapos so I went on. 

I stopped my project after coloring the acrylic. The following day, I added a silver glittered cardstock at the back and it made all the difference. It hides the imperfection of my coloring skills. :) Lastly, I used a silver metallic cord for the string. We don’t usually put our Christmas tree in November but I was excited to use my new ornaments so now our Christmas tree is finally up. 

This is a nice Christmas gift but it is labor extensive, masakit sa kamay at batok e.

Gift Idea: Mr. Green Manicure Set

Christmas is fast approaching. Have you started your holiday shopping? Well, it’s never too early to start buying your holiday gifts, especially now that we still have the COVID19 scare. It is a little bit hard to buy gifts in the mall so it is better to take advantage of the biggest sale every year such as the 11.11 Sale and Black Friday Sale

If you are still looking for gifts for your family, relatives, friends or your partner, I highly suggest the Mr. Green Manicure Set, this is a nice present not only this Christmas but you can also give this on birthdays, anniversaries, weddings, mother’s days, father’s day Valentine’s Day or any special occasions. 

Actually, I already have my own Three Seven Manicure Set (777) which I got from our company exchange gift. It was part of my wish list but I did not expect na bibilhin ng nakabunot sa akin because the price is way beyond our PHP500 budget. I am thankful when he gave me this because it is a very useful gift and I bring it whenever I travel. I’ve been using this for almost two decades na so it looks so old.

Three Seven is a company in Korea that has been producing the world’s top nail clippers and manicure sets since 1975. So it is not surprising that it lasted for so many years but it is no longer complete so I’ve been looking for a replacement. I bought an affordable manicure set before but I wasn’t able to use it because it is not sharp so it is just a waste of money. 

So I was happy when I learned about Mr. Green, this was supposed to be my gift for myself this coming Christmas but I could not wait anymore so I bought it last month for PHP1549 + Vouchers. Mr. Green is a manufacturer of professional beauty tools for more than 10 years already. 

From what I’ve read, Mr. Green is also a product of Solingen Germany, and Solingen is known as the leading brand of finest and best products in Germany. The company produces professional knives, scissors, and manicure products. Solingen is a name of a place in Germany which is also called “City of Blades”.

In addition, my cookwares are Solingen too and I’ve been using it for 15 years already. It was one of my treasured wedding gifts because my aunt shipped them from Germany pa talaga. There is an engraved CS Solingen Designed in Germany at the bottom of my cookwares. So sold na agad ako nung nalaman ko na Solingen din ang may gawa ng Mr. Green.

The price is a little bit expensive but it is worth the investment because it is made of medical-grade high-end stainless steel. It is sharp and never rusts. I also love the pink stripe leather cover made of high-grade PU leather. The manicure set includes a stainless steel toenail clipper, nail clipper, cuticle clipper, side edge knife (trim dead skin), cuticle pusher, glass nail file, and tweezers. It comes with a gift box pa so hindi ka mahihirapan ipanregalo. 

I’m so happy with my Mr. Green Manicure Set 7pcs so I’m planning to buy another set for my husband. Yes, they have a manicure set for men too though it is a bit more expensive. But it is better to have our own nail care kit for health purposes. Mr. Green has an official store in Shopee and Lazada so just check their promos.

COVID19 Vaccine for Teens

It was only last month when we had our pneumococcal vaccine. I decided to have this vaccine for added protection while waiting for the COVID19 vaccine for kids and teens. It took us a long time to get our vaccines so I did not expect that my son will have his vaccine this year. 

Read: I've Got My First Jab of COVID19 Vaccine

When I saw the announcement, I did not register immediately because their priority is Pediatric A3 and my son has no comorbidity. After few days, I decided to register and still checked the (without comorbidity). I thought it will take us weeks or months to get a schedule so I was really surprised that after 2 days we received a text and it fell on Saturday so my son doesn’t need to be absent from his online classes.

I immediately searched if it is safe to get the COVID19 vaccine because we just had our pneumococcal vaccine and fortunately, we can have other vaccines 2 weeks before and after the COVID19 vaccines. Thank God at pwede ang anak ko kung hindi mahirap magpareschedule ulit if he missed his first dose. 

My husband and son went to the vaccination site and it took them more than 2 hours bago nakauwi sa house. Late nagstart and mahaba ang pila, pero mabilis naman ang process. Requirements are Birth Certificate and Valid ID of the child. My son had his first dose of Pfizer-BioNTech and the common side effects are. 

Pfizer-BioNTech Common Side Effects 

Pain on injection site 
Muscle pain 
Joint pain 
Swollen lymph nodes 
Decreased appetite 

Luckily, my son did not experience any side effects and I was really surprised kasi kahit pain on injection site wala daw. I am not sure kung mataas pain tolerance ng anak ko kasi kahit nung nag-undergo siya ng circumcision, hindi man lang uminom ng pain reliever. Anyway, I hope sa second dose, wala rin side effects.


My son had his second dose of Pfizer, first day no side effects, second day nagkaroon ng headache. 


Since the face-to-face class is fast approaching, my son had his booster shot. The side effect is headache and pain at the injection site.

Recipes Using Pizza Dough

Since last year, I’ve been following Chef RV Manabat’s page and I enjoy watching his recipe videos. I took note of the recipes that I liked to try and one of those recipes is the homemade pizza dough. I already tried different pizza dough recipes in the past, but I liked his recipe because all I need to do is mix all the ingredients and store the dough in the fridge. I can use my dough the following day or even after few days. 

I can no longer count how many times I’ve made this homemade dough recipe because it became an instant favorite after I tried it last August. Although this is pizza dough, we don’t need to stick with pizza only because there are a lot of recipes that we can do using pizza dough like cheese roll, calzones, flatbread. pizza pockets, breadsticks, stromboli, or even cinnamon rolls. 

So for the past few months, I am making bread roll with different fillings, I tried Nutella, Ube Jam, Mozzarella Cheese, Quickmelt Cheese, Cream Cheese, Salami, Sausage, and any other stuffings that are available in my kitchen. I always prepare and bake two batches of this recipe and it will only last for 3 days. We will just reheat the bread in the oven toaster for few minutes and we have instant breakfast or merienda na.
