I made this for you, Jeroen #RealDadMoments

Happy father’s day to all the great fathers in the world.
I am lucky to have married someone who turned out to be a wonderful father to the boys, when they aren’t driving him up the wall.
Some people have tried to put us down—my husband, even my children and I, but those people don’t know anything. They don’t know that love exists in our home every single day.
I’m more than lucky to have Jeroen in my life, and I made this video to let him know how much we appreciate his hard work and everything he does for us every day.
Happy Father’s Day, Jeroen. And thank you, Burt Bacharach, for the music :)

UPDATED: 2014 Hottest football players on my list

As sure as my husband will wake up to watch football every four years, I too shall have my pick of hottest football players in the FIFA World Cup.
I’m trying to figure out why football players are the best looking athletes for me. I’ve narrowed it down to the following reasons:
1) I like lean guys. I don’t like gigantic borta basketball players or swimmers with huge wings (no offence!).
2) I like hair. Football players have the coolest hair for some reason. If a guy isn’t that gifted in the face department, the right hair can make him look really dreamy.
3) I like fashion. Football uniforms can look really cool with the zip-up jacket, the shorts, and the knee socks. Whew!! And when they take it all off, we turn into mush!
I actually went through all the pictures of the players plus intense Googling to come up with my list.
Let me know which ones are your eye candy, or in case I missed someone.
In no particular order, they are:

1) Olivier Giroud, FRANCE

2) Mauricio Pinilla, CHILE

Dove celebrates fathers in touching new video

With Father’s Day just around the corner, I can’t help but think of my own Dad and how I have to stop myself from bugging him all the time.
My earliest memory of my dad was when I was 3 or 4 years old, joining the maids in cleaning the house.
I had my own basahan (rag) and would wipe this dark table in our living room, only to have the dust fall on it again.
One morning my dad was off to work and saw me cleaning. Amused, he smiled and stopped to pat my head and give me 25 centavos.
I had the biggest smile on my face. Little did he know it would be the first of many times to give me money :)

For Father’s Day, Dove Men+Care has released a touching short video that shows the many ways dads care for their children.
Entitled Calls For Dad, the film features real moments that children of all ages share with their fathers—most of which are regrettably absent from media depictions of dads today.

Dove Men+Care is asking dads and their families to submit #RealDadMoments @DovePH on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, which will be heralded on www.Dovemencare.com to celebrate moments of dads’ care.
