The Crowd & Attractions at Star City!

I’ve been avoiding taking the kids to Star City for years. I’ve tried visiting the carnival a few times before and I always came out either disappointed or freaked out. I’m mildly agoraphobic so that had played a part in how I felt about the place. Judah celebrates 3 at Star City Judah turned three last January 1. We didn’t plan on a big celebration  but we wanted him to enjoy his birthday with us and his brothers. We originally planned on going to Active Fun but all of us, except for Jay, were coughing so badly, we thought they might refuse […]

The Mini Zoo they have at Residence Inn, Tagaytay

Since we were going to Taal Vista Hotel for our stay-cation, Jay and I thought it would be a good idea to bring the kids to see the animals at Paradizoo. I’ve never really heard of Paradizoo nor Residence Inn until I saw their promo on Metro Deal.

Residence Inn is only 5 kilometers away from Taal Vista Hotel but Paradizoo is another 6 kilometers. I thought at first that Residence Inn […]

Because of it, I packed late and I failed to buy kites (so kite-flying which was part of our original […]

Save Philippine Seas Watercolor Workshop

I’ve always been a fan of art. I’m not really an artist, (well, not the kind that paints and stuff) but I have always liked getting lost in the creativeness of those who are. So when a fellow WAHM posted an announcement about a Basic Art Workshop on the Manila Work-At-Home-Moms group page, I immediately registered Pablo. (The ad said 5 years and above, so Lukas and Judah can’t join yet) Who knows? He could be the next Fernando Amorsolo or Juan Luna! I asked him to choose between the pastel class or the watercolor class, he chose watercolor. I don’t really mind. […]

Was IIDM’s Content Marketing Workshop worth signing up for?

I’ve been on a lookout for an online marketing workshop for so long, so when I saw the advert for the October 3 Content Marketing Workshop, I couldn’t contain my excitement! The ad says it covers content marketing, KPIs, metrics, SEO, email newsletters, social media, ebooks and planning social media campaigns among others. The workshop also boasted of an impressive lineup of speakers– top practitioners in digital marketing such as Carlo Ople (Di9it), Josh Villanueva (Rappler), Yves Gonzales (MRM Worldwide Manila), Jayvee Fernandez (ID8 Inc) and Manny Nepomuceno (BBDO Guerrero Ortega). These people are not just employees of position in […]
