  • Pauleen Luna Sotto, her husband Vic Sotto and daughter Tali are in an exclusive Amanpulo resort in Palawan, an advanced vacation treat for Pauleen's birthday on November 10 and Tali's first birthday on November 6.

    "I'm a sucker for family vacations! Thank you to my husband for this beautiful pre-birthday gift for Tali and I!," Pauleen wrote as a caption for a family photo taken at the beach. "Thank you Lord for this opportunity to spend time with my family and to experience your beautiful creation," she added.

    In a solo shot taken as she stood in shallow waters, Pauleen was looking gorgeous and confident in her bikini-ready body. She should be proud of the hard work she put in to reclaim her body nearly a year after giving birth.

    "Loving this beautiful island!" the new mom wrote and then joked she could finally eat at a buffet.

    Her TV hosts celebrity friends also called out her flat, toned tummy and abs! "Hot mama!" Nikka Garcia commented. "Achieved," fellow Eat Bulaga host Pia Guanio-Mago wrote.

    Troy Montery hand-sewed a samurai costume overnight!

    Troy Montero's 10-year-old son Hunter Cody Miller (with sexy preggo Aubrey Miles) reminded him that he needed a costume for school the next day. "He also said he really wants to be a Samurai," the celebrity dad wrote on Instagram.

    First, Troy got his son's measurements before sending him off to bed. He thought he'd be able to use his sewing machine ("It's more like a toy," he said in the caption), but he soon realized it was missing a part. He had to sew it by hand. "It just so happens Dad knows how to sew," he proudly shared.

    Troy finished by 1:30 a.m. and by 5 a.m., when Hunter woke up he could fit his costume. "Turns out we did a pretty decent job of it. He was stoked," the celebrity dad shared.

    "The moral of this story [is]," Troy added, "the University of YouTube is amazing, but if you can learn something from a parent, brother, sister, Lola, Lolo...nothing beats it."

    Shamcey Supsup shows she's all for normalizing breastfeeding

    Proud breastfeeding mama Shamcey Supsup Lee shows nothing should stop moms from breastfeeding in public. She showed a video of herself nursing her baby, Nathan, while walking at a mall. "When you've mastered a new skill," the beauty queen wrote with the hashtags #breastfeedingwhilewalking, #breastfeedingwhilemalling, and #strikeanywhere.

    The mama of two also shared that she has unlocked a new skill: "football hold latching plus Haakaa (the brand name a breast pump] pumping," she wrote on her Instagram Stories.

    "When I'm out, I always pump everywhere. I pump sa traffic, in the makeup chair, sa restaurant," Shamcey told SmartParenting.com.ph in a previous interview 

    Scarlet Snow performs "kumendeng-kendeng" dance

    It looks like Scarlet Snow Belo is starting a new hit (and so cute, by the way!) dance routine for the Filipino folk song "Tatlong Bibe."

    "Introducing Scarlet Snow Belo's new dance step: kumendeng kendeng," her mom Dr. Vicki Belo shared on Instagram. The videos showed the toddler singing the song and accompanying her performance with a few dance steps. "Kumendeng kendeng is like this," the 3-year-old instructed while swaying her hips.

    Scarlet Snow also performed the song in front of her big sister Cristalle Belo-Pitt's son, Hunter James Pitt. She clearly got his nephew's attention, all right, but the little boy seemed more clueless as to what she's doing.

    "Baby Hunter is staring at me like I'm so weird, but that's fine. I think it's okay to be weird. Weird is fun," the caption on her Instagram account read. Scarlet Snow wasn't able to her new dance step correctly, but she ended the video by giving Hunter James a sweet kiss. Awww.

    Celeb parents show the importance of eating together as a family

    Going ‘kamayan’ is one of the most beloved Filipino family traditions. It evokes positive thoughts, brings back fun memories with loved ones, and even makes food taste a whole lot better. 

    The tradition is featured in Safeguard's latest commercial entitled "The Dinner." It shows celebrity parents Bianca Gonzalez Intal, Neri Miranda, and Drew Arellano, together with Boy Abunda, AiAi delas Alas, Tessa Prieto-Valdes, LA Tenorio, and James Deakin, eating a feast prepared by Chef JP Anglo with no utensils and just using their hands (clean, of course!).

    The soap brand hopes its video will change the way the family dines and encourage families to keep the 'kamayan' tradition alive.
