    MABE Personal Refrigerator and Tips to keep it Running Efficiently

    Okay guys. It’s been officially over a month since macho kid and I moved into a new apartment. We’re finally out from living with my mom and life as an independent family (mother and son tandem hehe)     Along with moving out, is arriving to a bare space. Our new home wasn’t furnished at all and we need to fill in the essential furniture and appliances so it’s live-able. My top priorities? Bed, stove, cabinets, microwave oven, and a refrigerator.   The last one is a MUST because everyone needs a ref to keep their leftovers, packed meals, jop’s fresh milk and such.    What do I look for…

Who knows, maybe it can help someone stuck, struggling with writing,  just like me.

    Living With Tourettes and Supplements to Manage Tics

    I’ve had tics since I was 5 years old. I remember having tons of interventions from my cousin because they thought it was a mannerism that can be stopped at will. NO. It’s involuntary and exhausting.   WATCH MY VIDEO Every single day I do my best efforts not to make it obvious to others. Being called weird, crazy, and other names can be hurtful. Let’s just be kind and compassionate. After seeing Billie Eilish opening up that sje has the same condition, it inspired me to do so as well. Here’s my story,and I hope it raises awareness.

    Hello World! Happy Mother’s Day! Hello Macho Mom!

    I have to reward myself a gift of writing a personal musing on the very first post on my new website The Macho Mom. It has been long over-due and I’ve been thinking about it A LOT!  If not for the google penalization of my beloved kikaysikat.com, I wouldn’t felt so desperate enough to create another domain because I feel like an octopus who’s lost its tentacle and it needs to regrow another one.   As you all know, KIKAYSIKAT has been my baby for 10 years now. It started out as just a beauty blog where I write my reviews and thoughts on certain products. It also grew a cult…
