Mommy Mundo Expo Mom: Go #TeamMom!

Posted on

Mommy Mundo Expo Mom is here again!

Every mother has a #TeamMom behind her – a group of moms who have come together, either through shared interest or common history, to savor every exciting twist and turn of their mommyhood journey. #TeamMom encourages her to take advantage of her strengths and helps her work through her weaknesses. #TeamMom knows when she needs to let her hair down and laugh at everyday foibles. #TeamMom also knows when a moment calls for an all-out cry or a gentle pat in the back. Above all, #TeamMom cheers her through every moment and milestone, whether big or small.

#TeamMom Rocks!

A community of moms dedicated to making motherhood easier, happier, and more fulfilling for every mom, Mommy Mundo is your ultimate #TeamMom. Through its carefully curated selection of events and activities, Mommy Mundo has given valuable support and encouragement to moms all over the country since 2003.

Mommy Mundo’s banner event, Expo Mom has always been committed to its vision of being the source of parenting trends and information, the wellspring of modern mommy products and services, and the launch pad for exciting campaigns, inspiring advocacies, and groundbreaking ideas.

As Expo Mom celebrates its tenth year in 2017, the longest running event of its kind pays tribute to #TeamMoms that have served as a lifeline for mothers all over the Philippines. It kicks off a year-long celebration at its first leg to be held on May 5-7 at the Glorietta Activity Center, showcasing more than 80 booths of its top picks in mom, baby and kid-focused products and services, onstage talks and demos, and lots of exciting perks and side activities.

As Expo Mom goes on a roadshow across the country, from Manila to Cebu, Davao, Cagayan de Oro and Negros, it brings its spirit of empowered motherhood and hopes to garner heartwarming stories of how each mom’s #TeamMom have encouraged, motivated, and uplifted one another to charge through challenges and celebrate successes of life and motherhood.

Be inspired by #TeamMoms across the country as Expo Mom gives recognition to remarkably resilient mom squads. Pay tribute to #TeamMoms that have grown up together from grade shool to mom school, #TeamMoms that have conquered seemingly insurmountable adversities, and #TeamMoms that are changing the world in their own special way. Share your own #TeamMom story on social media from now until November, and you and your mommy friends get the chance to have an appliance showcase from Electrolux, a much-needed vacation in Tagaytay, or even Taiwan!

Motherhood brings different moms together. We share the same ups and downs, we empathize with other moms, and we have this sense of belonging and community.

Ayala Malls Launches “PLAY” Time Summer Activities!

Posted on

What can we do to keep our kids pre-occupied this summer? Well, we search for summer activities that are both worthwhile and in my case inexpensive. Ayala Malls have great activities throughout the summer and this time around with the launch of “PLAY” we can expect a summer of musical live shows, rugby, a game fest and more.

Kianna and I attended the launch at Glorietta where we got a peek of what to expect. I don’t have as much time as I’d like to spend with my kids so events like these are ways to spend time with them. This time around Kianna and I had a day together. The funny thing is we had actually had an argument the day before. As a person one of my challenges is my pride, as a mother though I try and put that aside. I was happy that at the end of the day Kianna and I were more than okay.

To get to the main event floor we had to go through a fun inflatable maze. This is so popular right now and it was fun to do even if it was on land. The place was decorated like a child’s dream. With colorful installations and fun table top decorations.

Sam Oh hosted the event and we learned a little more about what to expect with “PLAY” time.

Easter Cupcake Decorating at Vanilla Cafe

Posted on

This year, Jael and I spent Easter at Vanilla Cafe Trinoma for an Easter Cupcake Decorating activity. Vanilla Cafe is one of the prettiest places I’ve seen. The pastels, cute decor and candied smell of sweets from cupcakes to cake slices overwhelms the senses and my eyes!

I told Jael all about the activity and he was excited to decorate his very own cupcake. It was Vanilla Cafe’s first event and the accommodating and cheerful staff were looking forward to it as well.

Like all Vanilla Cafe branches, Trinoma has a well decorated restaurant. The dainty set up was too pretty for words.

The Easter Cupcake Decorating event included a toque, apron, DIY cupcake kit that included a cupcake, piping bags filled with assorted frosting, assorted toppers with 1 Easter Sunday topper and a Kiddie Meal (spaghetti bolognese, fried chicken and 1 glass of juice). For Php599, that was definitely a steal.

As we were waiting for it to start I just had to capture the prettiness around me. I could tell that it was a well though out concept with details and personal touches here and there.

Jael was a bit under the weather but he was looking forward to creating his design. He looked so adorable in his blue toque and apron.

Jael got to work on his cupcake decorating skills garnishing with sprinkles and choosing from cute Easter themed toppers.

The final result! Jael couldn’t resist eating some of the toppings especially the gummy bears.

Other kids also had a fun time decorating their cupcakes.

Vanilla Cafe Food Choices

Bacon Carbonara (Php248)

Each bite was heaven for me. Pasta being my most favorite food topped with bits of bacon was delicious with every bite. Jael tried it and I told him that it was so good. He said the sweetest thing! “I like your pasta better mom.” <3

Kiddie Meal

Crunchy fried chicken and spaghetti bolognese is the perfect kiddie meal combo.

Naughty Nutella Frappe (Php128)

The Nutella frappe had the distinct Nutella flavor but it also had a coffee flavor. I had ordered this for Jael but he found it too strong for his tastebuds so I gladly drank it.

Strawberry Iced Tea & Calamansi Juice
