Eat Rice Without the Guilt with Grayns


Start of the year, my husband got hospitalized due to on-set gouty arthritis. On top of that, since his mom was a Type 1 diabetic, we learned that his chances of becoming one is higher as well. He needed to be in a low carbs, low fat diet STAT.

Mommy How To: NBI Clearance Application/Renewal

how to apply for nbi clearance online

I dreaded the idea of applying for an NBI Clearance when I learned that I needed a copy late last year.

Lining up in Quiapo-Carriedo for almost half of the day and going home with ink stained fingers clutching a piece of paper with my by then mukha-nang-may-criminal-record mug would always be my NBI Clearance memory.

I quickly asked around, “NBI Application is now online, right?”

And as it turned out, it is!

Applicants would just need to register through Continue reading
