Mini Melissa Conquers the World!

Mini Melissa

        I think it was about a year ago in Greenbelt 5 when this pink shoe with a purple bow caught my eye. I was looking for a comfortable shoe for Rain that she can wear anywhere that will look stylish, and at the same time will give Rain comfort. I picked it up and recognized that there was a certain strawberry scent to it. It reminded me a lot of those scented stationary sets when I was in grade school. I immediately liked it and we  bought it for Rain. That's when I first discovered about Mini Melissa shoes.

        And then I remember taking an Instagram photo of this cute kiddie sandals with an 8-bit heart design in Bonifacio High Street. And turns out, it was also Mini Melissa.

        Needless to say, I was becoming drawn to Mini Melissa shoes because not only are they just so darn attractive, they are also very comfortable to wear for kids! Mini Melissa shoes are comfy stylish shoes for little girls from 1-5 years old.

        I can only imagine the giddiness on the Jollitown children fan's faces as soon as their parents told them about Jollitown coming to life! This big fun event all happened just this previous Sunday at the SMX Convention Center. They have ssuccessfullytransformed a whole activity function room into a Jollitown wonderland! It was like a theme park of balloon houses with lots of toys for all members of the Jollibee Kids Club! A total of 13 fun activity areas for kids and kids at heart!

Splurge in Memories: Mascots For Your Special Parties!

        I remember when I was a little girl, I was in love with the Disney animation Aladdin. At night before I went to sleep, I would often dream about personally meeting these characters and being BFFs with them. But what hurt was that I knew that it could only be a dream. I know all kids are like this up to a certain age. They idolize certain characters so much that they want these characters to be real. So imagine the delight of a child when they see a certain character come to life and actually interact with them? That, dear parents, is priceless!

        Here is my little celebrant during her birthday, trying to process if what she's seeing is actually a familiar happy snowman that she only sees in the screen... Who is it?....

Rain's 3rd Birthday Party: A Royal Ball

        For two straight years, Rain has been a Sesame Street baby. So her first 2 birthdays has been Sesame Street-themed. But as she turns 3, (and with a little influence from her mama hehehe) she has turned her attention to all things princess-y! And as always, my ever dependable mom-in-law transformed her backyard into a Disney Princess Fantasy land! I must say she really did an excellent excellent job! So I wanted to share it with you! 

Presenting... Rain's Royal Ball: A Costume Party!

Swaddle Designs Available in the Philippines!

swaddle designs

        I vividly remember using up what's left of my mental abilities to store photographic memories of the step-by-step process of swaddling, the day after I gave birth. The lactation nurse at The Medical City seemed to be the only one who could do it perfectly. Not even the other nurses could do it as neat and as snug as she did. So every time we would call for her to swaddle, I would try to record the step-by-step in my mind. But somehow it still wasn't the same. I was starting to think she was magical! Haha!

        Or is it just me or do all girls get excited to use a brand new shampoo or conditioner? Girls are weird. And I'm one of those weirdos. Admittedly. Hahaha!

The Biggest Teacher Gathering!: The PLDT Gabay Guro 2014

Filled arena

          Since it was my first time to attend a PLDT Gabay Guro event, I was a little disoriented. I thought it was like a the usual events I would attend to like the PLDT Ultera event . So imagine my surprise when I saw the huge crowd outside. And when I say huge, I mean HUGE! So huge that the whole Arena was filled from top to bottom! It was crazy amazing! And to think that all of these are teachers! (Over 20,000 teachers from all over the country!) All unsung heroes that patiently teach and train our children to be our future! It was so heart-warming to see them all so excited to see their favorite stars! Being dubbed as the biggest teacher gathering of the year is an understatement. I firmly believed this could have been the biggest teacher gathering in the whole world ever!

Staycation at Oakwood Premier Manila

oakwood premier

        I have always loved Ortigas Center. For me it's like Makati but to a smaller scale, which is better because it means everything is walking distance. I enjoyed working there during my on-the-job training until my real first work, and 2nd work, and so on. There are 3 malls, a huge beautiful hospital, and lots and lots of restaurants to dine in. And yes, there are a good selection of hotels too! And one of your best bets would be the 2014 Traveler's Choice Winner of Trip Advisor. Oakwood Premier Manila!
