"Raketera, Mompreneur, kuratsa, ang babaeng walang pahinga", whatever you want to call me. 

For those of you who doesn't know me, I still have my day job while working on my online business at night. I make sure that I allot 1 to 2 hours a day to do sales, marketing, accounting and designing while making "chika" to my customers.

Teaching my daughter to blog :-)

Aside from this "online selling" nightly ritual, I also make sure to update my blog and write articles to promote the brands who gave their full trust to

I don't feel that this is work anymore because I am really enjoying and I have the passion in what I am doing right now.

But one of the challenges that I am facing is not having the right support staff to help me run the business. Like any mompreneurs I know, we tend to do it all by ourselves.

But let me tell you a little secret on how I was able to survive and still achieve that Work-Life balance we are all aiming for. Despite having a lack of support staff, I was able to outsource some of the "jobs" that I don't  have time to do anymore through these websites that every "Empleyado sa Umaga, Negosyante sa Gabi" should know and use.



I don't go to work driving my own car. I have my personal reasons why it is more practical for me to commute or just uber or grab to work. That's why I choose #MoveWithGrab.

The "Empleyado sa Umaga" in you should not be that stressed-out in commuting to work from Mondays to Fridays. And having the convenience of a point-to-point service to bring you to your work place will give you more time to prepare for the day ahead.

#MoveWithGrab is a point-to-point service operation during rush hours in the morning and at night. Let me give you the reasons why: 

  • It's a worry free commute and you will be able to skip the long lines with their guaranteed seating feature. 
  • Fixed, affordable fares. Private car trips starting at only P69 pesos.
  • No multiple drop-off points.

Booking is easy as 1-2-3-4. 

Step 1 - Choose Morning or Evening Rush
Step 2 - Chose Route 

  • SM North - Paseo Center Makati
  • SM North - BGC Fort
  • SM North - MegaMall Ortigas
  • Robinsons Metro East Marikina - Robinsons Galleria Ortigas
  • Robinsons Novaliches - Robinsons Galleria Ortigas

Step 3 - Choose Schedule

  • Morning Rush - 6:00 am to 7:15am
  • Evening Rush - 5:30 pm to 8:00 pm

Step 4 - Book



The  "Negosyante sa Gabi" in you will benefit from the logistical support that will be provided by this app.

Their market place connects businesses and individuals with qualified drivers and their vehicles to provide affordable courier services.

The app also provides options for same day package transport, express parcel delivery, and moving services in selected areas within the Philippines.

When I learned about this apps, I tried it right away and fell in love with the service they provide.

Here's the scenario : Friday afternoon, your boss asked you to finish a report and so you stayed late at work just to make the job done. Then you received a message from your daughter saying "Mommy, sira ata ang aircon hindi gumagana"  and then received another message from your husband "Walang kuryente pumutok ang fuse, we need electrician".
