Last August 2016, our family get to experience for the very first time the Toy Kingdom Toy Expo. It was held at SMX, SM Mall of Asia. It ran for 3 consecutive days. The expo featured NEW and amazing toys that the kids will definitely LOVE!
We were very lucky to have the privilege of coming in early on the first day and get to see the toys first. 🙂 Raix and I went in together with our very dear friends Mommy Em of touringkitty.com and Ate Aria! 🙂
As soon as we entered SMX, Raix and Aria couldn’t wait and hurriedly went straight inside the area where the toys are.Our first photo op was with Raix’ ultimate fave (and mine too! 😉 ), TMNT Leader, Leonardo!
We were greeted by this awesome set up from the halfshell heroes.
Next display that caught our attention was Lego’s amazing exhibit! You can even go in the middle to have a better view of it!
Of course they set up a play area for the kids.
Kids are having a hard time to decide where to go first, they keep running around and never settles down in just one place! 🙂 Plus! There are character appearances almost every hour! The stage appearances are good because parents get to rest awhile, and have a seat.
Of course! Cars! Cars! & more cars!!! At the Hot Wheels Make It Epic Booth! Dozens of basic cars to choose from! They even featured this cooooollll car!
Another hit with the kids, boys and girls alike was the booth of NERF! They allowed kids to try and check out their new products!
Of course, they showcased toys that are proudly Filipino made. Cutie fruits and veggies.
What’s cute is that you can have your pictures printed for FREE when you post your pictures in Instagram by joining the hashtag party.
Get ready to fight crime and evil as the incredible superhero family returns to the big screen! SM Cinema is inviting the whole family for a day of superpowered fun at the launch of Incredibles 2: Incredible Adventure at the event atrium of S’Maison at Conrad Manila.

Moms and dads out there, still looking for a summer activity for your kid? How about Ballet and Hip Hop Class? Bet?
Last April 10, Araneta Center together with Dance Plus Philippines launched their Summer Dance Program – Summer Rhythm. These workshops will be held every Tuesday and Friday from April 10 – May 18, for kids 4-15 years old. Sessions are held at the Ali Mall Activity Area their space is great for the workshop because of the spacious area where kids can easily move and groove.
Classes are facilitated by the dance instructors from Dance Plus. Dance Plus, also known as ‘your studio without walls’ partners with schools, malls, and condominiums to share the gift of dance to as many children as possible. Leaving children priceless memories this summer.
Raix was very excited once I told him about the hip-hop class. He loves dancing and his favorite moves are from Michael Jackson’s ‘Thriller’ and ‘Beat It’. At first, he was really shy to show his moves but eventually got the hang of it. 🙂 He may not still get the ‘angst’ of hip-hop dancing but still, Raix is a great dancer.
As a “stage mom” I don’t just watch my son but also the instructor. I was very impressed actually, Teacher Arlene started their class with a warm-up and slowly introduced a few steps after. What really surprised me is that before ending the session kids also cooled down. I danced during my school days but never taught about that. Great job Dance Plus!

It’s summer once again! Kids are excited to go out and play while moms and dads think of ways on how to make summer fun and educational at the same time. Nothing to worry, because McDonald’s offers both!
Luckily for us, Raix got invited to be part of the coolest team this Summer – McDonald’s Kiddie Crew Workshop. It was a one day activity where they were able to experience unique exciting activities.
This annual summer program is now on it’s 26th year. It is for kids 6-12 years old. Here our kids will experience all the fun things that make up McDonald’s through play-based activities, allowing them to learn good values, build confidence and discover new talents, all in the company of new friends!
The Kiddie Crew Workshop will teach our kids what it is like to be working at McDonald’s. My son Raix had so much fun making his own cheeseburger and greeting customers at the drive-thru and front counter as he gets their orders.
Aside from experiencing work done at McDonald’s, children will also get the opportunity to express their talent in arts and dancing.
By being part of the McDonald’s Kiddie Crew, Raix learned new skills, gained new friends and experienced a lot of learning and FUN! So what are you waiting for? Enroll your kids in the nearest McDonald’s store and give them an unforgettable summer experience!
Here is the list of activities you kids will be doing during this workshop.
Are you worried that you cannot join this workshop because of the 5-weekday schedule? Good news! This year McDonald’s offering a 2-day Weekend Workshop.
What does your child do well? As parents, we know that our children already have the skills one sort or other. Some kids will have a knack for singing, while others will excel in painting.
Letting them explore on their own is essential to discover and nurture their true gifts. For instance, motivating kids to participate in various activities is a good opportunity to discover their interests. Aside from stimulating their creativity, doing this will also help push children to explore their full potential.
While they are young, allowing your kids to realize their talents is helpful in honing their skills. And as parents, we can be the number one support that they need.
Last February 24, Raix and I were very fortunate to be invited to Promil’s iShine Talent Camp Launch for this year. Personally, this is something I look forward to for Raix back when he was still a baby. I recall that I imagine him joining the talent camp, singing and dancing with the other kids. So, I wouldn’t miss this opportunity!
As we got to the venue we got more excited as we are greeted by these cool photo op backdrops.
The Promil 4 iShine Talent Camp 6 launch was hosted by the Multimedia Star Ms. Toni Gonzaga. Mommies and daddies are taught on what Promil has to offer our little ones by doctors and food scientist & nutritionist.
“We’re so excited to finally open the most exciting PROMIL® Four i-Shine® Talent Camp 6 yet, where we will witness, once again, the awesome talents of the young participants,” Villegas added. “This year, we are also bringing back our camp masters on board, who will help discover, nurture, and inspire their talents so that they will shine brightly.”
This season, the PROMIL® Four i-Shine® Talent Camp 6 showcases four different workshops namely, Music, Dance, Arts, and Engineering. Maestro Ryan Cayabyab returns as the camp master who will lead the Music Workshop, Teacher Georcelle Sy, of the G-Force Dance School for the Dance Workshop, Teacher Robert Alejandro and his team from Papemelroti for the Art Workshop, and a new set of workshops focused on Engineering to be led by Teacher Lei Sta. Maria of Engineering for Kids.
We were also amazed by the Promil iShine Talent Camp graduate’s presentation. They sang, danced and one of them played the drums! These kids are so talented! 🙂
The best part of the event was when the kids got the chance to experience what is in store for them this year at the Promil iShine Talent Camp. My son Raix sure had fun! 😀 We will share to you his experience through his YouTube Channel – Raix at Play.
The PROMIL® Four i-Shine® Talent Camp 6 will run from April 2 to May 3, 2018. It will be conducted in different locations in Metro Manila and will be concluded through a recital on May 11, 2018where the participants of all four workshops will perform.
The PROMIL Four i-Shine® Talent Camp 6 will also visit key cities in Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao via road shows to allow children outside Metro Manila to experience the thrill of the workshops.
PROMIL® Four i-Shine® Talent Camp 6 is now accepting enrollees for the summer activity. To enroll, parents should purchase any of the participating PROMIL Gold® Four or PROMIL® Four variants, which has a corresponding discount to any of the kid’s chosen talent workshop. The pre-registration, on the other hand, will be done online through PROMIL® Four i-Shine® Talent Camp 6 website.
Who knows your child may be the next Vincent Van Gogh, Alexander Graham Bell, Elvis Presley or Madonna.
Since its inception, the PROMIL® Four i-Shine® Talent Camp helped discover and nurture the young Filipinos’ gift in partnership with parents. It is initiated by PROMIL® Four, a milk brand, specially formulated for children above three years old. It is also the only brand that contains NUTRISSENTIALS®—the combination of the unique and important nutrients that help support mental and physical development to help Nurture the Gift, together with balanced diet and healthy lifestyle.

Last month, I brought my son to his Pedia for a check-up. I got worried because he has cough & colds for 3 weeks already. I believe that it was viral infection so I started to double-up his intake of fruits but nothing changed.
His pedia told me that his coughs & colds were caused by viral infection. I might have exposed him to too much germs and pollution. This also triggered his asthma. Poor little boy now is under medication for three months. I thought I maybe unaware of where else we acquire bad germs.
Wherever you go, bacteria abounds. Many of these bacteria are able to cause malodour, skin infection and diseases such as diarrhea, cough, colds and the like.
Worse, these bacteria are increasingly hardier, dirtier, and can multiply faster than you expect, therefore putting your family members at risk. Consider these troubling facts about bacteria:
1. The number of bacteria that live in and on us outnumber our own human cells by ten to one.
2. Common cold, flu and stomach viruses can live on the fingertips for hours and can survive on the surfaces of objects for days.
3. 80% of all infections, from the common cold and flu to venereal disease and Ebola fever, are transmitted by people touching one another or touching objects that others have touched.
4. A shopping cart can contain more fecal E. Coli than a supermarket toilet.
5. One study found that in schools, water fountain buttons, pencil sharpeners, keyboards and faucet handles were the most contaminated objects with viruses.
6. Phones have been found to have up to 4200 bacteria from fecal contamination. Safe drinking water should have less than 1 bacteria per 100ml.
7. In an environment as humid as a bathroom, a single bacterial cell can multiply into one billion cells overnight.
8. When someone comes to work sick, about half of the commonly touched surfaces in the office will become infected with the virus by lunchtime.
In light of this disturbing data, it is imperative for all members of the household, especially children, to use the right kind of soap that can kill these germs effectively and prevent their regrowth.
Unfortunately, not all soaps are created equal. Experts have demonstrated that most soaps do not protect their family from modern day germ threats. Protection from germ threats begin with proper handwashing and bathing using an effective antibacterial soap like Safeguard.
Safeguard with Germshield+ technology can fight a broad spectrum of gram positive and gram-negative bacteria and fungi, preventing more types of sickness, malodour, and skin infection. Moreover, Germshield+ technology inhibits the regrowth of these bacteria and fungi for up to 24 hours, thereby providing optimal protection.
For over 50 years in the Philippines, Safeguard has been recommended by the leading health experts for germ protection for the entire family. Encouraging proper hygiene, frequent handwashing, and the use the Safeguard will make your job as protector of the family easier and more effective.
Our family always uses SAFEGUARD, I thought my little boy is too young to use safeguard for his hands and body. But I am wrong, now, he uses Safeguard Soap and Safeguard Body Wash. He loves the one in Honey Smash Scent. 🙂 Now I am confident he is 99.9% Germ Protected! 😉

My little boy, Raix is a LEGO lover. His fondness to it is just overwhelming. As young as 3 years old, he can build small lego sets by following the manual. Honestly, he is even better than me! Haha. When he knew that we got an invitation to a LEGO Friends event he got so excited! 🙂

The most exciting part during the LEGO Friends event launch was the games. One of which is the Lego Friends Speed Building Competition.
I asked Raix what he want to build. He said he wanted to make a sword like from Star Wars. Here is his light saber. 😀
He had an awesome time building this. Imagine building something with just 60 blocks! It was like show-and-tell, kids are asked what they built. I was so proud of Raix because he didn’t get shy when he was asked about his entry. 🙂
We were not able to win Major Prizes from the two games but we got lucky and was picked during the raffle! Yey!!!

It’s not over until Lightning strikes back. Witness the legendary world-champion Lightning McQueen (voice of Owen Wilson) in his strongest and weakest elements- from being blinded by the new generation of blazing-fast racers and ultimately, with his own light of success. The much anticipated comeback of Lightning McQueen is set to hit the big screens on August 2 – from Disney Pixar’s Cars 3.
Determined to get back on track with the help of the eager and unconventional race technician, Cruz Ramizez (voice of Cristela Alonzo), Lightning Mcqueen is definitely unstoppable and ready to compete with even the fastest, sleekest, frontrunner of the next generation racers, Jackson Storm (voice of Armie Hammer). Trained and equipped with high-tech simulators programmed to perfect technique and maximize velocity, Jackson Storm is certainly one of the biggest battles Lightning McQueen has yet to face.
