Thomas & Friends Minis Target Blast Stunt Set Product Review and Giveaway

Hello mommies! I want to share with you my new discovery. My son is a fan of toys like Hot Wheels, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Transformers and Thomas & Friends. Nowadays, malling is not quite practical. The commute here in Metro Manila will really kill time. So, I checked online where I can buy these toys in good shape and in a discounted rate.

As I surf the net, I am happy I came across this site, www.kidscompany.com.ph. I haven’t heard this yet not even from my mommy friends.

Their site is very easy to use. You can easily search for the toys you want because their products are very well categorized. You may search by type or by the brand you are looking for.

You know what really caught my attention? Yup! The SALE and SPECIAL items section! Most items are on 20% discount. Some are even up to 50%. Very great deal right? I also noticed that you can order toys even before it is released here in the Philippines. With that, you will know that those are brand new toys and is not in toy stores yet.

While I was browsing last January, what caught my eye is the New Thomas & Friends Minis Target Blast Stunt Set. Why? It’s a newly released toy here in PH and is very affordable. Plus, my son has no Thomas & Friends playset yet. Which made me think that we can do an unboxing video of it.

So there, I added it to my cart and filled-up details for the product check-out. What’s cool with KidscompanyPH is that they sent me an email on the day the product was released and notified me that it is finally for shipment. Our toy arrived 3 days after their email. That was so FAST!

PRODUCT REVIEW

The Thomas & Friends Minis Target Blast Stunt Set includes the following:

This is very easy to assemble my little one assembled it all by himself. But still needs adult supervision. The set comes with a manual of course.  🙂 Here is a Helpful Hint, it has ONE-TIME SNAPS. These pieces are marked with a “star” and once these parts are put together they cannot be taken apart.

The train also has an added feature. It has a “cape” which you may attach & detach to any Thomas Minis. The cape is the one that makes the minis stick to the target. 😉

Another cute feature is that this stunt set can hold up to 10 more Thomas & Friends Minis! You will see hooks, there you may attach your collection of Minis. Amazing isn’t it?! When I saw it, I think I got more excited than my son did. 😀

Filipinos advised: Hand wash with soap frequently to prevent measles

Filipinos are urged to be vigilant in protecting themselves against measles, following the Department of Health’s declaration of a measles outbreak in the National Capital Region, other areas of Luzon, and Central Eastern Visayas.

Data from the DOH Epidemiology Bureau showed over 800 measles cases in Metro Manila in the first month of the year. The number of measles cases in the country has been on an uptrend, with 3,646 cases recorded in 2018 compared to just 351 in 2017 – a ten-fold increase.

Measles is a highly contagious but preventable disease that is transferred from one person to another through sneezing, coughing, and personal contact. Its symptoms include coughing, a runny nose, red eyes, fever, diarrhea, and a distinctive red rash that spreads all over the body.
Its complications, which can be fatal, include ear infections, blindness, swelling of the brain, and pneumonia. In fact, measles is one of the top causes of death among children below the age of 5.

Because of the seriousness of the disease, individuals should proactively take steps to protect themselves against it. Apart from vaccination, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDCP) recommends:

● Frequent handwashing
● Not touching the eyes, nose, and mouth
● Covering the mouth when coughing or sneezing
● Avoiding close contact and sharing utensils with people who are sick

Handwashing can play a major role in helping prevent the transmission of the measles virus. According to the Global Handwashing Partnership, “Handwashing protection works by removing the tiny droplets containing the measles virus from your hands before they get a chance to infect
you or transfer to someone else”.

Handwashing with a trusted soap like Safeguard is able to remove 99.9% of germs. Make sure that as you lather, you thoroughly scrub and cover all parts of the hand with soap. Then rinse your hands with water. With regular handwashing with soap, Safeguard is a cost-effective and easy measure to help prevent the spread of the disease.By taking a proactive and vigilant
stance through vaccination,handwashing, and the tips above, the battle against measles can be won. If your child or family members are showing these symptoms, it is also recommended to visit your nearest health center or family doctor.

Novelina Zeelke Cream Hair Color

Last December 2, I decided to give hair coloring a try. I really don’t want anything to do with my hair except cut it short. My hair has always been a virgin when it comes to hair coloring, rebonding, etc. It experienced totally nothing. (Sounds boring??? Hehe)

As I am very much “afraid” of having to put chemicals to my hair, I checked what makes Novelina an exception among the rest. I am not familiar with the Novelina cosmetics, aside from haircare products would you believe it also has skincare products too?

For the HAIRCARE, they have 2 kinds of hair colors. The Novelina Zeelke Cream Hair Color with KERATIN and Zeelke HERBAL Cream Hair Color. Yes ladies! Herbal hair color is available. This may be used by those who are sensitive to harsh chemicals especially on their scalp. While Novelina with KERATIN gives your hair that shiny look and emphasizes your hair color.

They have 8 color variations to choose from, Natutal Black, Asian Black, Dark Brown, Brown, Chestnut Brown, Golden Brown, Crimson Red and Burgundy.

For me I chose the one with Keratin. Why? Since I have normal hair, I thought adding color into it will make my hair cry. So maybe it won’t get dry if I chose the one with Keratin. 🙂

MY EXPERIENCE

When I arrived at their stall at Cash & Carry Makati, I was greeted by one of their staff while she was busy washing another customer’s hair. She let me had a seat first until she is done with her first customer. Once done, it’s my turn. 😀 I was really confused on which color to apply to my hair. I don’t think that Red would be nice since of my morena complexion. I was to go with Burgundy but their friendly staff, Miss Jo, suggested me using the Chestnut Brown since my hair is very black. Burgundy won’t be noticed on my hair unlike chestnut brown. And so coloring begins. I was really excited on what the outcome would be, and posted pics and short videos on my IG Story.

The hair color application was easy. For my hair length she used 2 boxes. What’s cute is that each box comes with a little brush. 🙂 I wasn’t able to take a picture of it. After the application they have me waited for 45 minutes before rinsing it. I enjoyed rinsing time though. 🙂 I was worried there would be visible hair color on my forehead and scalp but there were none.

Now is your turn to give your hair a twist and try different hair color. Novelina is giving FREE APPLICATION with a single purchase of hair color. Head on over to Cash & Carry Makati 2nd floor Department Store (near cinemas). Catch them until December 28, 2018. I’d love to see your hair transformations. 🙂

Special job, opportunities fair set for PWDs

A special job fair has been slated exclusively for persons with disability, promising disadvantaged members of the community in Metro Manila with employment, livelihood and training opportunities, the Department of Labor and Employment announced yesterday.

The event is a joint undertaking with the Rotary Clubs of District 3830 in observance of the International Day for persons with disabilities. The exclusive offering is also part of the anniversary celebration of the labor department which turns 85 this year.

Close to a hundred private companies and government agencies are expected to participate and ready to take in qualified persons with disabilities into their workforce in the fair set on December 5 at the Quezon City Hall starting at 8 am.

The special activity will highlight compliance with the law mandating offices of government to set aside one percent of the positions to persons with disabilities. The same law, Republic Act 10524, encourages private enterprises with more than 100 employees to reserve one percent of their workforce to the disadvantaged persons.

The Rotary Clubs from District 3830 mobilized employers from various parts of Metro Manila to the activity.

The Department of Trade and Industry and the Technical Education & Skills Development Authority will provide livelihood and skills training for qualified beneficiaries during the event.

The other offices collaborating in the conduct of the job fair are the Public Employment Service Offices in the National Capital Region, the National Council on Disability Affair and the city government of Quezon City.

All local government units in Metro Manila were also invited to participate by sending qualified persons with disability from their respective communities to the job fair.

The event will be graced by Labor Secretary Silvestre Bello and other labor officials, Quezon City Mayor Herbert Bautista, District Governor Alfredo Montecillo of Rotary International District 3830 and the Rotarians from the various Rotary clubs in the district.

Jobseeker persons with disability may pre-qualify for available positions or employers who wish to participate in the job fair may register at philjobnet.gov.ph.

Mommy Veni & Raix at the PediaSure Plus OMG Park

Abbott Introduces PediaSure ® Plus #OhMyGrowth (OMG) Park to Provide Educational Experience on Children’s Growth and Development
The PediaSure Plus #OhMyGrowth Park roadshow launches, running from November to December, starting with Festival Mall, Alabang

Parents always want the best for their children and ensuring their growth and development is no exception. For this reason, parents like to know if their children are growing at the right height and want to make sure that they are eating the best foods to stay active and healthy as they grow.

As for me, with my 2 girls, I really never had worries if they are of right height and weight during their formative years. I was quite contented with how tall they are & their body weight. But with my youngest, it seems that I wanted to give him everything just to make sure he grows up tall and of right weight. Lucky for me, he is growing up tall and is active and healthy.

Some of those we just met always asks what age he is, when I answer back, they’d be surprised and the frequent response is, “He’s big for his age.” I’ve seen kids his age kind of short for their age and is wondering why? Was it because of their parents’ hormones? Or they lack enough sleeping hours? Or maybe it’s with their milk?

To help encourage parents to properly measure their children in order to recognize signs of nutritional inadequacy and keep their growth on track, Abbott is launching the PediaSure Plus #OhMyGrowth (OMG) Park across a number of locations in the Philippines. The park offers a fun and interactive experience for parents and children over three years old. Featuring checkpoints for height, weight and immunity, the park is designed to educate parents on their children’s nutrition and growth development, while letting the kids enjoy fun-filled activities. Currently in Festival Mall, Alabang from Nov. 17-18, 2018, the park is also scheduled to be at: SM City Pampanga on Dec. 8-9 and SM Southmall, Las Piñas on Dec. 15-16.

Complete and balanced nutrition is important for a child’s growth

The first five years is a critical window in a child’s life for bone growth, with 60 percent of a child’s adult height attributed to growth at this stage. However, this period is also the time when a child is most likely to encounter barriers to growth such as poor nutrition, feeding difficulties or frequent illnesses. It is important to ensure that a child is getting a complete and balanced nutrition as they grow and that appropriate nutrition is introduced in time so that the child can stay on track in achieving his full growth potential.

An oral nutritional supplement like PediaSure Plus can help provide the proper nutrition a child needs by helping to fill nutritional gaps. PediaSure Plus is clinically proven, with 37 growth nutrients and triple protein complex, to support muscle and bone growth. A clinical study among Filipino children showed that drinking two servings of PediaSure Plus with
three balanced meals everyday resulted in visible growth within eight weeks — and helped to improve appetite, weight and height, reduced sick days, and sustained proportional growth.

Dr. Jose Rodolfo Dimaano Jr. – medical director at Abbott explains: “To support their overall growth and development, children require complete and balanced nutrition. PediaSure Plus provides essential macronutrients and micronutrients needed by a child to stay healthy and well-nourished. Its consistent use helps children to meet their dietary requirements of key
nutrients for growth. This is especially important because many Filipinos are deficient in nutrients such as calcium, iron, vitamin A and C – all needed to support the optimal growth of children.”

At the launch event, celebrity mom Melissa Ricks – mother to three-year-old Keira, spoke about the importance of ensuring optimum nutrition with PediaSure Plus: “It was hard to make sure Keira was getting all the nutrition she needs when she was growing up because of her food preferences. But she loves the taste of PediaSure Plus – especially the chocolate one!
With her having that twice a day, I can rest assured that she’s getting the proper nutrition she needs for her health and growth development – boosting her height, weight and immunity. It really helps me to make sure she is eating right, even on the busy days.”

#ShareAMomentOfJoy Short Film Series Touches on Heartfelt Family Moments

When dinner time conversations end, real ones begin:
Joy pays a heartfelt tribute to the unconditional family love that surrounds Christmas reunion dinners

This Christmas, the season of family reunions; Joy, the Philippines’ leading dishwashing liquid; releases two short films that seek to encourage more meaningful exchanges between family members by showing how a chore as mundane as dishwashing is perfect for a more intimate form of bonding. Whereas dinner conversations are great for finding out how everyone is doing, it may not be as conducive to ironing out sensitive issues as a quiet chore done by two people helping each other out. By focusing on this powerful moment and revealing its essential role in family life, Joy celebrates the unconditional love that Pinoy parents have for their children, one that will triumph over life’s hardest challenges.

Modern, authentic scenes of parenting love.

In the “OFW” short film, the brand highlights how OFW parents struggle with the effects of distance and time away from their loved ones, imposed on them by their sacrifice to work overseas.

In the second film entitled “Daughter”, Joy celebrates the love of a father for his daughter, regardless of her life choices that challenge conventions.

Joy salutes the sacrifice of OFWs and parents in an exceptionally realistic and relatable way.

Created by Publicis Singapore for P&G, the two films are a departure from Joy’s usual comedic and light-hearted stories, with a more earnest and true-to-life portrayal of family struggles. “OFW” pays homage to heroes often honored, but unfortunately not always understood by their family. It recognizes that for both the OFW and family, homecoming can be bittersweet, but the small everyday moments spent together can help to heal wounds and create precious memories.

When dinner time conversations end, real ones begin.

“Through this film, we want to salute the sacrifices done by our modern-day heroes, while also putting focus on the magic behind appreciating those times where one lets their guard down and can be very candid and open. While we recognize that dinner serves as a great way to gather families together, it also rings true for many families that bonding moments can’t be forced. In many cases, when dinner ends, real conversations start. What matters is truly embracing every moment spent together, and choosing to #ShareAMomentOfJoy,” shares Michael Jonathan Biscocho, Brand Manager, P&G APAC Dish Care.

Noel Orosa, Regional Group Creative Director, Publicis Singapore, adds “While the dinner table is great for bonding the entire family together, we saw dishwashing as a safe alternative space for a family to have real one-on-one conversations. It’s a chore that two family members can do together, which is free from the distractions of mobile devices and everyday family life. For more than two decades now, Joy has been a ubiquitous presence on the Filipino family’s dishwashing sink, which is why it is in the best position to do this advocacy campaign. This marks a new era for Joy thanks to the brave, progressive leadership of the Joy Brand Team.”
