Keep Your Kids Safe & Stylish: Top-Rated Smartwatches on Lazada

By clicking on some of the links in this content, I may earn a small commission at no extra cost to you. IThanks for supporting my work!

We've been considering getting a smartwatch for our son even before he mentioned seeing one of his friend's watches. He likes the idea of us being able to call him and him being able to see the time, especially since we often send him out to play and ask him to return within a specific timeframe.

In the meantime, we'll do some research and read reviews of smartwatches available on Lazada.

Paying AXA Policy using GoTyme

My enthusiasm for earning GoTyme points reached new heights last year. Every transaction, big or small, became a chance to boost my rewards total. This even led me to explore whether paying our AXA policy with GoTyme would open up additional point-earning opportunities.

As of January 2024, AXA Philippines isn't integrated as a biller within the GoTyme. However, policyholders with GoTyme debit cards can utilize them for online payment through the "Emma by AXA PH" app. 

1.To initiate a payment, download the app, select the "Pay online" option.

2. Choose the desired policy, and enter the GoTyme card number. Please note that payments processed through this method will be reflected within two banking days.

 Additionally, GoTyme rewards points are awarded for eligible transactions, as demonstrated by my recent payment, which earned 44.46 points

Bahay Turo Online Tutorial Review

After months of searching for the right online tutorial platform for my son, I finally found Bahay Turo. Based in the Philippines, Bahay Turo offers a variety of subjects and experienced teachers, making it a one-stop shop for my son's educational needs.

We decided to try their services last November 2023, and I'm so glad we did. The platform offers a free trial class, which was a great way for us to get a feel for the teacher and the learning environment. We chose Math as our subject, and Bahay Turo promptly assigned us a dedicated teacher.

What impressed me most was how the teacher went above and beyond to make my son feel comfortable before the class even started. She introduced herself warmly and asked him some questions about his interests and learning style. This personal touch immediately put him at ease and created a positive learning atmosphere.

The teacher's approach to correcting mistakes was also commendable. Instead of simply pointing out errors, she took the time to explain why the answer was incorrect and then patiently showed him the correct solution. This helped him understand the concepts better and boosted his confidence.

After the successful trial session, we were so confident in Bahay Turo that we booked another class on January 6, 2024, this time for Filipino subject. My son is preparing for his upcoming periodic exams, and Bahay Turo's personalized tutoring has been invaluable in helping him solidify his understanding of the material.

I also want to mention the excellent customer service at Bahay Turo. The customer service representatives are always friendly, helpful, and quick to respond to any questions or concerns I have. They make the entire experience seamless and stress-free.

Finally, the user interface of the Bahay Turo platform is incredibly user-friendly and intuitive. It's easy to navigate, schedule classes, and access learning materials. This makes it a breeze for both me and my son to use.

Overall, I'm happy with our experience with Bahay Turo. They've provided my son with a supportive and engaging learning environment, and the results speak for themselves. If you're looking for a reliable and effective online tutorial platform in the Philippines, I highly recommend checking out Bahay Turo.

Sairam Playland SM Novaliches

 My child has been begging me to let him play in Sairam Playland Novaliches branch. But I was hesitant because of the virus that he could get in the play area. However, I was relieved to know that despite the relaxing health protocols, Sairam Playland still maintains healthy hygiene. I even brought him to Kidzoona SM Fairview last year when he insisted on playing in Sairam. That branch has a smaller Kidzoona area and the entrance fee is PHP 250 pesos.

But recently, we decided to let him play in Sairam Playland, and I was shocked to see that this area has a wider space compared to Kidzoona SM Fairview. It was well-lit and clean. T really enjoyed roaming around. For only PHP 350 pesos, you can play for 1 hour with free entrance for a guardian. Don't forget to bring your own sock though they sell socks it's much better to bring one.

I am glad that we decided to let T play in Sairam Playland. He had a lot of fun, and I felt safe knowing that the play area was clean and hygienic. I would definitely recommend Sairam Playland to other parents.
