Let me start this article with this amazing video of the Tupperware Click Series Peeler Set.

I know what you are all thinking... it is an exciting product isn't it? It really is!  And here is my story....


Peeling and slicing are my kitchen tasks.  In our family, it is the hubby who cooks.  But I don't totally abandon him in the kitchen. I usually help in the pre and post food preparation. That is -- washing, peeling and slicing of ingredients, and washing the pots, pans and utensils after cooking.  Hey, that's real kitchen work, you can ask my hubby :)

I've always used knives in peeling.  Why?  Because I have worked with substandard peelers that have caused me numerous cuts in my hands. Because they usually have smooth metallic handles na delikado pag dumulas sa kamay. 

That is why I was super happy to receive the latest innovative product from one of my favorite brands... TUPPERWARE!  The Click Series Peeler Set.  



The Click Series Peeler Set came in a black stylish storage box.  I loved the fact that I can easily access each blade, by simply pressing the one-release button.  The storage box also include an anti-skid feet on each corner for counter stability. 

After using, you can put the blade with its handle on a standing position on the storage box so it can air-dry. See? Storage box pa lang, multifunctional na!    

The blades were also very impressive.  

The VERTICAL HEAD is for peeling hard fruits and vegetables, or for making shavings from chocolate of cheese. 

The UNIVERSAL HEAD has a straight blade for harder fruits and vegetables, and serrated blade for ofter foods and a small spur to remove "eyes" from potatoes.

And the WIDE HEAD for slicing.  Great for making thin slices of potato chips or zucchini for salad (both are my family's fave).  

Having said all that info, its time to road test this innovative kitchen product.  Let's do some peeling!



I made sure to use the product for several days and to use in in different fruits and veggies. I was amazed that the different blades were easy to use and really really peel well.  I just have to make a mental note to always clean the blade after use and dry it well -- para tumagal talaga siya sa akin.

The peelers were easy to use.  Doesn't slip from my grip.  And can easily be attached or detached from the handle. Saves time in the kichen because the peelers functions ver well.

The storage box is a genius of a design.  It serves its purpose as a storage, and if you are a bit OC like me, the box will ensure you that the peeler heads will never be misplaced.  

Over-all, the product blends well in my red kitchen motif.  So cool that I have several colorful items that make my kitchen exude a happy vibe :)

O di ba?  Even my teen daughter did not have a problem handling the Click Peeler Set. Now she can be a kitchen helper too. She told me, she'll not only be in charged with peeling fruits and veggie now... she can easily to garnishings too.   Eh di happy'ng happy si mommy!

SRP for the Click Peeler Set is P1699 but this month you can get it at a discounted price of P1299 this month. Panalo ito di ba?

Thank you very much Tupperware Brands Ph for giving me the opportunity to experience this awesome product.

Growing up, I always hear my nanay telling me, "wag kang galawgaw. pag nadapa ka, magkaka-peklat ka!  Hindi na yan matatanggal."  I have heard these words too many times, but the child in me has always prioritized playing in the streets, even playing rough games. End result: scars on my legs.

Now as a mom of a 16 year old teen... I have heard myself saying the same words... "ingat sa soccer game. Pag nagalusan ka, papangit legs mo!" Of course, my teen did the same thing. She played rough resulting to several minor bruises.  End result:  scars on her legs.

But now that she is slowly transitioning from soccer girl to senior high school, and becoming more conscious of her appearance, particularly her skin, she asked me what can we do about her soccer scars?  And I recommended her this product:  CLEARASCAR.


Clearascar is a scar solution in a tube.  It is the ONLY 100% SILICONE containing scar solution in the market.  Silicone is considered the FIRST LINE THERAPY for scar management as recommended by medical practitioners, since it is proven effective and safe, with no side effects, non-toxic and easy to use.

Clearascar is CLINICALLY-PROVEN to improve the appearance of scars in as fast as 8 WEEKS.  It can lighten, flatten, and soften mature (old) and immature (new) scars.  It can improve the appearance of all types of scars most especially the elevated scars such as Hypertrophic scars and Keloids. Hypertrophic scars are red and raised scars usually caused by burns, surgeries, injuries, and wound.

      Clearascar can be applied on the face and other sensitive areas. It is non-comegogenic, which means it does not block pores.

      If you are wondering if it can be used for acne and stretchmarks. The action of the silicone on Clearascar is to soften and flatten scars. If the scar is depressed then the action of the silicone may not work to treat the depressed scar.

Clearascar is safe to be used by pregnant and breastfeeding women. Clearascar is made of silicone which does not get absorbed into the blood stream but it is always best to consult your doctor before using any topical creams during pregnancy and lactation.


  1. Begin using  Clearascar once the wound has completely closed
  2. Make sure the affected skin is clean and dry
  3. Clearascar can be used as early as 5-7 days post surgery to prevent worsening of the scars
  4. Apply  a thin layer of Clearascar on the affected area 1-2 times every day. The 6g tube will last up to 60 days for a 1-2 inch scar. The 15g tube will last up to 60 days for a 3-5 inch scar.
  5. Do not  massage the gel on the wound
  6. Allow  to completely dry (approximately 2-3 minutes)
  7. Use continuously for a minimum of 3 months, or until you no longer see an improvement in your scar
      SRP:  ·       6g tube is P418.95 and 15g tube is P761.20
      Available in all leading drugstores nationwide such as Mercury Drugstore, Watsons, South  Star Drug, Rose Pharmacy, etc.  It is also available online for ordering this LINK

The RED kitchen in my home is definitely my huband's turf.  But once in a while, I visit to prepare salads, or fry egg.  Admittedly between me and my husband, he is the expert cook. But there are times when I need to prepare something for the teens, especially when the husband has to work overtime.  

One of the few things that I can prepare is my husband's Creamy Mushroom Soup.  And since it was raining every single day for the last two weeks... the teens requested for this soup.  But I decided to tweak it a little. By putting a secret ingredient and a healthy veggie aside from mushrooms.

Already intrigued?  Well.... watch the video to find out how to prepare --- MRS.WISE CREAMY MUSHROOM WITH A TWIST!

I decided to put celery because I love the crunchiness it gives to the soup.  Celery is an excellent source of antioxidants and beneficial enzymes, in addition to vitamins and minerals such as Vitamin K, Vitamin C, potassium, folate and Vitamin B6.  

Mushrooms on the other hand, contain high amounts of copper, which is needed to produce blood cells and maintain heart health.  Additional nutrients are Vitamins C, D and B; and the mineral selenium, iron, magnesium, phosphorous, potassium and zinc.

The Dulong is inspired by my love for tsamporado and tuyo, that my mom prepared everytime the weather gets cold.    (pic a IG) The Dulong's saltiness complements the creaminess of the mushroom soup!

Aside from the fact that this soup is a comfort food of my family during rainy days, it is also packed with health benefits too! 

Mommies and daddies... you might want to try serving this to your own family.  Drop me a message if you decide so, and tell me about your family's culinary experience!
