Giveaway: Why #BeloBaby’s talc-free powder is the choice of caring moms
Posted on

Growing up in the ‘70s, we used to get all sweaty running around, playing both indoors and outdoors.
It was normal to see a yaya running after her ward, with the intent of placing a small towel between the child’s sweaty shirt and back. T-shirts would be changed, but not before toweling off and dusting with baby powder.
When I was younger, using baby powder meant talcum powder.
At that time nobody cared.

Hemady kids
No internet: Playing outdoors in the ’70s with my siblings and cousins. I’m the kid in white shoes.

When my nephew Mickey was born in 1990, I remember his pediatrician telling his parents not to use powder on the baby. It was the first time I heard a doctor say that.
Most powders were made with talc, which is a mineral.
As a powder, it absorbs moisture well and cuts down on friction, helping keep skin dry and prevent rashes.
But in its natural form, talc contains asbestos. That’s why the use of talcum powder has been linked to certain cancers.
Now moms can thank Belo Baby for making talc-free powder that is all natural, with 0% harmful chemicals.
Watch this!

#BeloBaby Talc-Free Powder is made from finely milled rice and maize (a special corn) powders that leave skin fresh and soft.
Best of all, it’s formulated without talc.
Finely milled rice and maize have bigger particles than talcum powder. That means they are less likely to be inhaled or absorbed into the body via inhalation or swallowing.
#BeloBaby TaIc-Free Powder is “crafted with care for the most delicate skin, for the most meticulous moms.”
I also love the packaging.

Waiting is not a bad thing
Posted on

I didn’t make it to my Belo appointment because the maid used the driver to buy bread without telling me. While waiting for the driver to come back, I got three calls from the Belo Shang clinic asking where we were. I tried to explain that sorry we are on our way, but you know how Pinoys are, you get a 15-minute grace period, and if you’re not there, sorry ka na lang. Never mind if you’re a good or potentially good customer).

I got so pissed I don’t think I can ever show my face there again. But why does it have to come to this?
In this day and age of horrible Manila traffic, there should be some humanity when a customer begs for you not to cancel their appointment.
How many times have I waited for my turn at a doctor’s clinic, say, at St. Luke’s or Medical City?
If you’re on time, you usually have to wait for your turn. If you’re late you still have to wait anyway because that’s life. Things and emergencies do happen. Traffic happens.

In Tokyo where people are incredibly polite, they always say, お待たせしました (Omataseshimashita) or thank you for waiting. In Roppongi, I was surprised when an Uber driver waited for us for ten minutes when we couldn’t find him, instead of cancelling our trip.
When we were late for our reservation at our favorite Barbacoa restaurant, I was afraid we would lose our table. But nobody cancelled our reservation and it remains our favorite restaurant.
We try not to be late but things do happen especially if you’re managing teenagers.

Barbacoa Roppongi
Love this place

So yes, I’m still home and tomorrow I’ll take my kids to Dr. Murad at Shang instead. We will not be late. I hope the kids like the service there.
