Mother's Day - Also For Our Second Mothers

The second Sunday of May has been dedicated to pay tribute to our moms on a special day - Mother's Day.

But for those we consider our second moms — the women who have supported us in some ways and provided strength in times of needs, we could also make them part of this special day as well.

To the women ladies we’ve come to regard as our second moms, Toblerone (the well-loved triangular Swiss chocolate) believes that Mother’s Day is the perfect time to give them something one-of-a-kind.

Here’s a list of some of the “other mothers” to whom we should all extend the sweetness of gratitude to like our mothers:

The Lola

Your grandmother is the mom who always saw you as a child and never stopped giving you advice. She may still be sporting the same old flower-patterned dress and terry-cloth slippers, but your “Lola” never fails to amaze you with her wisdom and care. Put a smile on her face and show her how much you appreciate all her efforts throughout the years

The Tita

Those times you came home late, she would usually stop your mom from continuously scolding you and would then calmly talk to you about your mom just being concerned about your safety. Your tita always has been the mediator, always able to see both sides of the story and make a compromise out of any situation. And this Mothers’ Day may just be the ideal time to give something back.

The Motherly Mentor at Work

She may constantly put pressure on you and push you to be at your best all the time. But you know it’s for your own professional and personal growth. Those deadlines she set are for you to learn more about the value of time. Those bonuses you get are for you to realize that your efforts at work are highly appreciated. This Mothers’ Day, let her be the one to feel that all the hard work she has invested on you are worth it–-thank her for the relentless guidance she has given you be it inside or outside the office.

The Kindergarten Teacher

What about your teacher? Despite those times she gave you the hardest exam, it eventually paid off. You even swore you saw her eyes watering a bit during your graduation. She’s given you tough love and recognizing it is more than enough for her.
The Yaya

Remember how you used to run and look for her whenever you got scolded–wrapping your tiny arms around her waist and wetting her dress with your tears. Now that you’re all grown up and you still see her washing your clothes and preparing your meals, you know she deserves something special.

Though overlooked with their efforts mostly going unnoticed, anyone you’ve come to consider as a second mother has undoubtedly made an impact. Extend your sweetest thank-you’s to them – the same way that Toblerone will be honouring the unsung heroes of our everyday lives in a big celebration on October 20. And yes, your yaya, teacher and lola and all the other women whom you’ve regarded as your second moms—are invited to this event. In the meantime, make Mothers’ Day extra special for them by thanking them with Triangles. Thank them with Toblerone.

Forti-D: Your Daily Dose of Vitamin D

Are you Vitamin D deficient? Just few weeks ago, I attended an event that talks about Vitamin D deficiency, then I realized it's not something we usually monitor. We go to the clinic for the regular physical examination which includes CBC, Blood Chemistry, Cholesterol check up, X-ray but have you ever had a check-up of your Vitamin D level?

Silent epidemic spreads: 3 out of 5 Filipinos suffer from Vit-D deficiency. Are you one of them? An expert in the field of occupational medicine has revealed that an increasing number of office workers in Metro Manila are becoming vitamin D-deficient because of their lifestyle habits.

Cases of vitamin D deficiency in the country are increasing due to lifestyle that most of us have. Vitamin D is produced naturally through adequate sun exposure and given that most office workers are not exposed to as much sunlight as they need to be, they face a much pronounced risk of suffering from the condition. Because of extreme heat, we opted to stay indoors…

Elica Cream For Treatment of Eczema

Earlier, I attended the launch of Elica Cream and Ointment (Mometasone Furoate). It's a new product from Bayer Philippines that will treat inflamed, itchy eczema. When a child can't sleep at night, it might be due to monsters under the bed and that keeps mommies awake too. This monster attacks the skin, eczema.

Eczema is characterized by red, dry, itchy rashes on the skin. It is more common in children than in adults. It can also have a huge negative impact on a skid's life, like sleep deprivation.
