A Father: Head of the family and not just a provider

Imagine working in a world where time seems to just past by and where almost everything changes instantly. Think of having to keep up with an environment where it costs a lot to stop or even slow down for a while. Sound taxing, right? What more of prioritizing the welfare of everybody in the household on top of it all. 

But every head of the family doesn’t mind about it. Fathers are said to be the pillars of our homes. They toil sun up to sun down to give our needs and desires.

Some of them go abroad with tears in their eyes because they will be physically separated from their families. However, there is a certain joy in their hearts knowing that they will be able to provide for their loved ones back home.

To honor these gallant paternal men and let them feel how extraordinary they are and important their sacrifices are for their families, Father’s Day has been a yearly universal event. As we mark again this special occasion on Sunday, June 18, 2017, our applause and recognition will never be enough to show them how grateful we are to have them in our lives. 

Our dads, together with our moms, take good care of us the moment we’re born. They are the ones who provide everything we need for our everyday lives. From infancy up to adulthood, they feed and clothe us. 

As we take our initial baby steps, our patriarchs guide and lead us in the right direction. When we stumble and fall, they assist us to rise and move on. In times of danger or any threat, they shield us from any harm.

All of these, they do out of unconditional love. Their selflessness, though, has its own toll. Working tirelessly could lead to high levels of stress constantly and problems not only mentally, but physically, too. So better watch out for the signs. 

Has tatay been constantly complaining about losing strands and strands of his hair every day? Or maybe has he been searching for a way on how to get them to grow back?

According to the hair loss statistics conducted by Statistic Brain in the year 2016, 40 percent of men experience noticeable mane vanishing as early as age 35. And as per the American Hair Loss Association, there are a couple of different factors that cause excessive hair fall, one being extreme degree of stress.

Nutramedica Inc. introduced a revolutionary product that aims to address this problem: NOVUHAIR, nature’s answer to hair loss. Being the only topical scalp lotion in the country that is made from 19 natural herbs, essential oils and co-factor nutrients all working synergistically, it’s perfect for all the heads of the family out there, be they biological or not.

Simply spray a liberal amount of NOVUHAIR topical scalp lotion onto the scalp and massage for 5-10 minutes. Voila, it penetrates deeply into the roots, which helps rejuvenate, nourish and maintain the natural moisture of the hair. 

Still have no idea on what to give him on his big day? Well, NOVUHAIR might not be the most expensive gift to impress him, but the most valuable present he could ever have. This nature’s answer to hair loss provides him the chance to be ahead already in preventing his “crowning glory” from receding in the near future.

Club Balai Isabel Aqua Park Grand Opening

With my little boy Ivan MommyGiay took advantage of the four-days long vacation (being ASEAN Week and National Labor Day) and we had our most sought after day-off.  Just in time we were invited for the Grand Opening of the Club Balai Iabel Aqua Park.

The Aqua Park is a huge inflatable trampoline park afloat the Taal Lake Shore.  It boasts the country's tallest inflatable water slide and with stunning view of the very famous Taal Volcano.

The party was hosted by Mr. George CariƱo and Ms. Amy Perez of ABS-CBN Network.  It was also attended by local officials from the Provincial Government of Batangas and Talisay municipality. The designer and creator of the aqua park Mr. Peter Appleton was also there as he explained what's behind the concept of this water park. Accordingly, with his wife they are planning to settle here in the Philippines for more business ventures, which probably means soon there will be more aqua parks around the Philippines.

But for safety reasons, for now the aqua park admits only adults and kids either they are 13 years old above and/or 4 feet in height. Though there's a plan to expand the play area to accommodate the kids 13 years old below, that's good news for Ivan.

I've had my own experience and full enjoyment of the aqua park. Honestly its my first time in something like this. Even when we used to lived abroad, we've never been to an aqua park as we mostly visited the amusement park where husband works.

I was not able to cover the whole area of the Club Balai Isabel Aqua Park because there are certain portions where I had some difficulty maneuvering the obstacles. Yeah! MommyGiay is not so young anymore therefore it is exhausting and I have some fears when it comes to waters. Likewise I never dared to try the giant slide but according to my friends everything here is awesome. Anyway, getting aboard the swan trampoline is already a total enjoyment for me. I fall-off the water once and did I tasted Taal Lake not so fresh water? Good thing, the "kuya" life guards aer so helpful and accommodating.  They all reach out and tried their best to assist everyone. Yeah! they just so great helping me out to maneuver some of the obstacles and getting to the other side.

Thanks for the photo

Thanks for the photo

All in all, it was a fun and great adventure.  Hopefully we can extend some more time and enjoyed basking in the morning sun.  But for now, there's long line for the other guests waiting for their turn to experience the aqua park adventure.  Well, I'll make sure I can come back some other time and bring my whole family here.

Also it was time for us to go, my little boy borrowed the staff's megaphone and called on MommyGiay.  "Mommy go back, I am hungry and I want water", everyone hearing it, ha!ha! Moms with kids can't really have 100% relax mode even while on vacation.  And he had his share of tantrums as he was not allowed yet access to the aqua park. Nevertheless, he enjoyed long hours of swimming at Balai Isabel's vast swimming pool.

Thanks to my blogger friends for the whole 2-days fun and adventurous summer vacay with you. Its always nice going back to Club Balai Isabel. For more details you may visit their website or at their Facebook and Instagram pages for more updates on promotions and club activities.

At the end of the day let us always thank the Lord God for all His beautiful creations.
