Music Together by The Great Leap Academy

I woke up today feeling amazing. I feel that I can accomplish anything today. Feeling this way may be due to the fact that I loved what I did yesterday, which was talk to people. Have you noticed that when you are exposed to something you love doing, it doesn’t feel like work?

In the same way, my daughter thinks it’s fun going to school. In school, they dance, sing, and play while learning the alphabet, number, etc. I have noticed that my daughter loves music. She loves singing. Recently, we went on a field trip to Manila Ocean Park, and she was singing in the bus the entire time! Because of this love for music, I decided to try out The Great Leap Academy once again. The last time I brought her to this place was when she was a baby, and we both had a great time.

In BGC, they have two branches: the one at Kensington Place and another one at Serendra. The Great Leap Academy’s number one goal is to provide a home-like environment and the kind of influences that encourage children of all ages to become creative, independent, responsible, well rounded, self-directed adults who can make decisions for themselves.

We arrived there for the 3:00 PM class. The minute we walked inside, Zeeka was greeted by two really enthusiastic teachers. We arrived just in time so we all went straight to the mat area — yours truly, Zeeka and yaya Ana. We started immediately and the first song was a welcome song. The teacher gave us a beat to follow by clapping. She sang it beautifully without any background music. It was so cool!

“In Music Together, not all song are with CD accompaniment. There’s a balance between acapella, instrument accompaniment and CD accompaniment. Also, not all songs are kiddy songs. It’s a mixture of different kinds of genre – jazz, broadway, world music, blues, pop etc. kase we wanted to create a musically rich environment for the child. We are exposing them to authentic music immersion,” said one of the TGLA representatives.

What was great was that the two teachers kept my daughter very engaged. It was so nice to see her follow everything that was said. There was also a time for dancing-your-heart-out! It was so funny seeing her dance!

What The Great Leap Academy uses is an International Program called Music Together. The Joy of Family Music® since 1987 Music Together is an internationally recognized early childhood music program for babies, toddlers, preschoolers, kindergarteners, and the adults who love them. These classes are mixed-age classes for children 0-5 years old—and. Grown-ups are actually encouraged to join, too!

When you enroll with The Great Leap Academy, it comes with a song book and the songs that you can take home and play at home. The entire curriculum is research based. 8 sessions (plus two bonus classes) is at Php 7700. It’s worth it!

It was really a great experience, not only for my daughter but also for me (and yaya… haha!). If you are looking for bonding activities that you can do with you child, I highly suggest that you enroll at The Great Leap Academy. Hope to see you, too!

 

Start the Year Right with these Top Picks from S&R

I had my first grocery trip this year to stock up on things that I usually buy last weekend. Aside from that, I looked for other products that would help me achieve my goals this year! Haha! Such a nerd right?! I know that other moms, like me, have this thing with groceries. We just love getting lost in; Wandering off makes us feel more relaxed. So to start the year right, I will share with you the different products that I found in S&R Membership Club.

Start the Year Fresh!

I remember that when I was little, my grandmother’s house, would have everything and anything you wanted.  I used to see piles and piles of soap in her shelf. I used to think that we pretty cool. Aside from having one at hand and ready to be distributed when my tita, tito, mom, dad, or anyone in the house would ask for one, it was also an instant air freshener for her room. I used to come in happy smelling the petal scent of these soap bars.

When I saw this, I had to get a pack. It’s actually on sale so you can get 6 bars for only Php 329.95. Plus, check out that huge shampoo bottle below! That huge Dove Shampoo container is only at Php 449.95. It could definitely last for a few months!

Start the Year Fit!

I have been running almost daily since January 1. For those who are bent on keeping fit and staying active, you will realize that a lady can never have enough sports bras. And what kind will she need? Well, nothing but that best I say! These Under Armour Sports bras are only at Php 1895 each (from Php 2395, the original price). It comes in two colors, black and pick.

Start the Year Right Fit!

During workouts, I always keep myself hydrated! The trick is to drink a little amount but frequently. I found this non-toxic plastic tumbler with ice cubes! It is double wall insulated so it keeps your water cold longer with no moisture outside. It won’t mess up your work table or even slip through your hands. This Rove Classic Tumbler is at Php 149.95 (from Php 299.95).

sr-january-2017-19

sr-january-2017-20

Another cool thing that I saw was this Muscle Therapy Massage Foam Roller. After a strenuous workout, your body deserves some pampering! This cool contraption is at Php 599.95 (down from Php 799.95).

sr-january-2017-22

Start the Year with Good Food!

This year, I’m going with my high protein diet again. Learned about this through Tim Ferriss’ book, 4 Hour Body. I think it’s really difficult to go through any kind of diet. It really takes a great deal of discipline and determination. I hope I have enough motivation to last me the rest of the year. For my high protein diet, I saw this box of Gorton’s Clams. It looks delicious! Guess what? This product is Buy 1 Take 1 for only 299.95! Great deal right?

sr-january-2017-34

For those who are not like me (I still eat fried food =(…) and really strict with their diet, I suggest that you grab this Oster Indoor Grill for only Php 2499.95. I actually have this at home! I use it to cook fajitas — I love chicken and beef fajitas.

sr-january-2017-17

This diet that I am doing REQUIRES me to go on “off” days or cheat days at least once a week. During that day, I can eat anything I want. Of course, I want to eat the very best! Check out what I bought for my “cheat” day!

The first one is cheesecake from The Cheesecake Factory. You can buy the Original Cheesecake Flavor for only Php 674.95 (down from 1149.95).

sr-january-2017-32

But check this out! It’s The Cheesecake Factory Truffle Cheesecake Collection. Inside the box are these flavors that you can try: Chocolate Raspberry Truffle, White Chocolate Raspberry Truffle, White Chocolate Blueberry Truffle and White Chocolate Lemon Truffle. This box is sold for Php 1499.95. This looks super yummy! I’ll visit S&R Membership club this Friday to buy a new cake for me to enjoy over the weekend!

sr-january-2017-31

If you are a fan of ice cream, check out this huge tub of Blue Ribbon Classics Chocolate Chip! Anyone want to hang out with us this weekend? Haha!

sr-january-2017-26

Another favorite is obviously Ben & Jerry’s ice cream. We actually bought a pint already! Each pint is not at Php 229.95.

sr-january-2017-28

Start the Year by Traveling

One of the things that I have realized last year was that I missed traveling! This year, I will start the year right by buying things that will inspire me to travel. If you don’t have a backpack, check out this Hedgren Backpack Yellow. It’s only Php 1699.95. It looks very durable. It also has a slot for your laptop and other things!

sr-january-2017-9

sr-january-2017-8

That’s it! I hope you enjoyed going through these products with us! I know that you will have a grand time at S&R Membership Club. If you want to check out other deals, visit their Facebook Page: https://www.facebook.com/snrmembershipshopping/?fref=ts They post new deals on their page!

Do you have any other tips on how to start the year right? Share them with me and use #LoveSnr #SnReveryday #MGFinds I’d love to hear what your favorite thing was at S&R!

 

 

 

 

9 Fitness Applications that We Have Tried

A one hour workout is 4% of your day. No excuses!

We went on a downloading spree of different fitness apps. I guess we felt that the more fitness apps you download, the greater the chances are of becoming the ultimate epitome of sexiness this year. We tried and used all of these fitness applications, and since we don’t want you to waste your phone’s memory by downloading each and every one of them, we will share our review (most of the feedback was from my husband… hehe!).

Adidas Train & Run
fitness-app-1

 

The first one is Adidas train & run. You can create your very own customized running plans. It takes a bit of getting used to, it seems. It works on the concept of blue/green zones during your workout (which I don’t really get). Also, I aside from not the vague functionality, the prompts aren’t telling me to slow down or speed up. The nice thing though about it is that it creates calendar entries for you depending on your plan. It syncs with your calendar, but bit of a hassle when you uninstall it.

Will probably delete that. 😛 But hey, Adidas, just bought a new pair. Maybe you need to up your game in the app department.

Zombies, Run!

fitness-app-2

fitness-app-3

In “Zombies, Run!”, you basically pretend you’re running through a post-zombie apocalypse wasteland. You’re a runner collecting stuff and as you listen, there are some story elements. A bit of a disappointment though. We were hoping that it would be more interactive (ie. if I slow down, I get eaten by a zombie) – but it’s not. It’s really just a radio play. Lots of dead air, too, in between. Good acting, execution could’ve been better.

Runtastic

fitness-app-4

The third one is Runtastic. I haven’t really used it since my data is Endomondo. I got it on sale, so I will try it out. An annoying thing though is that I bought the app, but seems that I still need to buy the training plans. Meh. It’s how Endomondo’s doing it also though – with a subscription instead. Bought that one too (I think).

Sleep as Android

fitness-app-5

The fourth app is called Sleep as Android. I was able to get the unlock at P15 last Christmas! This one’s nice! It’s basically an Alarm clock, but it’ll wake you up when it’s best for your body to wake up (i.e. you’re not in deep sleep). You place it beside you on your bed as you sleep so that it tracks your sleep cycle. It seems to be working but not sure if it’s just some weird placebo effect.

Couchto 10K Running Trainer

fitness-app-6

The fifth one is Couch to 10K Running Trainer. It’s basically a set of audio prompts designed to tell you when you should run and when you should walk, based on the Couch to 5K program made by Josh Clark. The app is designed to help you gradually build up endurance to do a 5K/10K while minimizing injury. It’s one do the good ones, so far. Seeing the checks against each day/program is pretty satisfying.

Endomondo

fitness-app-7

I’m sure most of the fitness enthusiasts reading this know Endomondo. It’s a darn good app, but what’s a little bit annoying (since I bought this app), I expected the feature set to be available. It seems though that some parts of the app, like the training plan – you still need to subscribe to. It’s around P1000+ per year lang (pretty affordable) but still, I already paid for the app. 😛 Come on!

Jawbone

fitness-app-8

The 7th one is UP by Jawbone. It’s connected to my Move. The nice thing about it is that it connects to MyFitnessPal, Endomondo, Runtastic, etc – almost all of them. It gets my data from those other sources, also. It motivates me to do 10K steps/day since, otherwise, I have to eat less — it makes a negative calorie (basically I have to burn that much) entry in MyFitnessPal when I don’t reach around ~7000 steps.

Misfit

misfit

This 8th app is connected to my wearable which is a Misfit Shine. It can connect to MyFitnessPal, so it’s pretty convenient. The application/wearable tracks my sleep (when I had light sleep and restful sleep). It tracks my steps via points though which is indicated in that big wheel. The steps and calories are shown below. I love using this because it’s simple to use.

My Fitness Pal

fitness-app-9

The last one is called MyFitnessPal. Almost all of the food I eat is on the app! It even has a barcode scanning function which makes entering the exact amount of calories super easy. It even has this yummy chicharon one my officemates brings — Chicharabao (chicharon from Carabao). I scanned the barcode and it was there. HOW IS THIS POSSIBLE?!

So that’s it! Here are all the apps that my husband has!

fitness-app-10

Take note though, he plans to remove the following: Runtastic, Adidas, Zombies Run. Runtastic is redundant with Endomondo. Adidas is redundant with all the other ones I’ve already started with. Zombies Run is not compelling enough. 😛

Again most of the views in this post are that of my husband and I share most of his views! I tried out the apps in his phone, too, and I completely agree with him. Hope we encounter better apps soon! For now, I think I’ll stick with my Misfit, Endomondo and MyFitnessPal apps!

How to Make Laksa Noodles Singapore with McCormick

I got this package from McCormick the other day. It was a package that contained the new McCormick Noodle and Seasoning Mixes. It had Palabok, Pad Thai and Laksa! I am not very fond of pasta or noodles, but McCormick really got it right to send me packs of those kinds of dishes that I love! I can never say no to Palabok, Pad Thai and Laksa — especially Laksa Noodles Singapore! When we went to Singapore early this year, my husband and I had a terrific time eating this dish a lot!

So today, we are very excited for dinner! We are having Laksa Noodles Singapore. Laksa is a popular dish from Singapore which I love so much! It is a spicy noodle soup that consists of rice noodles with chicken, prawn or fish. It has either a soup base which is rich and spicy curry coconut milk, or a base that is sour asam (tamarind or gelugur). Now, I can actually cook Laska Noodles Singapore at home because of the new McCormick Noodle and Seasoning Mixes.

mccormick-noodle-and-seasoning-mix

This is how easy it is to make Laksa.

laksa-noodles-singapore-mccormmick

Step one: Buy the following ingredients: A pack of Tofu, a pack of beansprouts, shrimp, prawns or chicken and a pack of McCormick Laksa Noodle and Seasoning Mix.

laksa-ingredients

Step two: Prepare all the ingredients. You can already fry the tofu, and take the skin out of the shrimps and prawns. Prepare the beansprouts, too.

Step thee: Boil the noodles inside the McCormick Laksa pack and drain it.

Step four: Add three cups of water, the seasoning and the sauce packets into the pan, and mix the noodles.

Step five: Add the other ingredients.

That’s it! You have just created your very own Laksa Noodles Singapore special! Now I’m not a very good cook,  but I must say that this dish is a winner! The level of spiciness was just right!

If you have tried the new McCormick Noodle and Seasoning Mixes, please do share it with me and let me know how it was when you prepared it. Our Laksa didn’t last a day!

 

 

 

The Freelancer Fair BTS: A Post of Gratitude, Learnings and Why’s

First of all, I want to thank all of those who made it to The Freelancer Fair 2016. Thank you so much to all those who signed up (all 350) people and to the 280 plus who made it a point to show up on that day. Thank you to our Major Sponsors: Payoneer, Paymaya, Taxumo and Uber. Thank you also to our Minor Sponsors: Alfox Printing, Ideaspace, A Space, Evolve Yoga, Bean & Barley and Pioneer Mighty Bond. Thank you also to all the booth sponsors that we had. Most of all, thank you to the Department of Information, Communications and Technology team (Sir Mon, Miss Emmy, Merlin and Joy) for supporting us, and to all our speakers, our two lovely hosts (Marv and Jieneb), to our media partners and community partners who were present. Thank you all from the bottom of my heart! This will be the first of series of posts that will highlight or feature the people and brands who have joined us!

The Truth about The Freelancer Fair and our Why

We started conceptualizing and implementing The Freelancer Fair early this year. The Freelancer Fair was supposed to be a project of a big brand and Manila Workshops, but after a few months, we faced our first challenge. Manila Workshops had to shoulder all or the expenses and efforts to build the fair by ourselves. I had the option to drop and just let go of the project, but I decided to push through with it, because I knew that this will really help the freelance industry a lot.

To tell you honestly, I did not earn from this event and lost a pretty big deal of money implementing this event. Obviously, I knew about this a few months back during planning, and yet the team decided to still pursue the project. Why am I telling you this? I want you to know that this is how much we believe in this community. We know that this community will grow and in the future, a lot of individuals will opt to work from home and will start a freelance career. This is how much I want all of those freelancers, solopreneurs and small business owners to have the opportunity to learn more about different things so that they can grow their businesses and freelance careers. This is the reason why I am so proud of my team — Team Manila Workshops.

team-manila-workshops

People are quick to judge about the little things, but what they don’t see is the time and effort that these individuals in the team give in order to make your dreams come true and in order to give you the opportunities that we know you deserve. I hardly mention my team in any posts, but for just this once, I want to share how amazing they are. All of them know that their goal is to make your entrepreneurial and business dreams come true. We know that we need to provide an avenue and create opportunities for you to pursue your passion. We all want to help you achieve that, through the little things that we do.

To my little team, thank you. Always remember that humility, honesty, and that drive is what will make the difference.  Always be willing to serve and learn from the things that you do. Strive to be better by learning from mistakes. Pursue your dreams and make a mark!

We got a lot of feedback from participants that going to the Freelancer Fair was worth it. Some of you even approached me, and thinking of those people make me tear up (haha! yes, I am a cry baby!). I was deeply touched and moved  by your words. These moments make all of these things worth it!

We also know that we have lot to improve on. First of all, we will find a more accessible venue. Yes, the venue was too big. A really intimate venue would have made it more conducive for interaction.  If you have other comments and suggestions, please do email me directly at ginger@manilaworkshops.com.

For the brands and people that truly supported us and genuinely helped us build this event, thank you! I will mention a few of them here, because I really saw something that needs to be highlighted. We can all learn from how they did it!

First of all, Miguel from Payoneer, thank you very much! You truly are the embodiment of what a brand partner should be. I saw Miguel going around and genuinely talking to people and learning more about their business. This is what I love about the people behind Payoneer. They don’t think about metrics alone, but they really find ways to help build the industry and use these events to learn more about us — the people. Thank you also for that well crafted presentation. I learned so much about transferring payments. So on the 29th, for the Payoneer Forum, we will definitely be there. Everyone, please sign up here: http://register.payoneer.com/register-payoneer-forum-manila-29nov-kat/

For Marv, thank you so much for all the help! Thank you for even offering to lend your clicker. These small things matter!

20161119182831

To the communities, especially the Online Filipino Freelancers or OFF, thank you for the unwavering support! Thank you for always being there to support events for the community. Thank you to CJ, Althea, Liberty, etc. I love you all!

Thank you to DM, Sherry and the Yuneoh team! Thanks for all of the tips and the pro-activeness. You also embody what a media partner should be!

But still, to all of our partners that made this event happen, thank you so much! Again, thank you to our Major Sponsors – Payoneer; the easiest way to receive Cross-Border Payment at the Lowest cost, Paymaya – PayMaya is your app to pay online so you can buy the things you’d love to have, without a credit card; Taxumo – making it easy for every Filipino small business owner and professional to prepare and pay for their taxes! and Uber – the safest way to get around the metro!

Thank you also to our minor sponsors, Alfox Printing (Thank you so much, Abby!), Mighty Bond, Ideaspace, A Space, Evolve Yoga, and Bean and Barley. This event also wouldn’t be possible without our our media partners: WheninManila.com, POP Inquirer, Yuneoh, Manila Bulletin, Voice of the Youth Radio, Creativoices, and MommyGinger.com.

Thank you also to our community partners: OnlineJobsUniversity.com, Freelancing.ph, Freelance Blend, Tycoon.ph, Zarangola Media, Online Filipino Freelancers, The Virtual Nomad Podcast, Bloggers ng Pinas, Raket.ph, Work in Freedom, and Graphic Artists Philippines!

This is our first big event for the Freelancing community and I promise you that this will not be the last. We will continue to help this industry grow. We will continue to support and connect freelancers and clients. Manila Workshops will continue to create learning events and networking events for you!

Again, thank you everyone! I’ll be sharing the lessons that I have learned this week on Freelancing and starting a business. Watch out for it!

 

 

 

 

The Philippine Homeschool Conference 2016

Parents need to have the numerous and the best options when it comes to raising their children. It nice to see how a lot of things have changed since the time of our parents. I remember growing up without all of these new technology: no iPads, no smart phones, no internet. And with all of these new things, the available channels for our children to learn new things have increased exponentially, too.

With the fast paced lifestyle and with information readily available, lifestyle, habits and mindsets have also changed. In terms of education, the only choice that we had before was to go to school (as we know it) and listen to our teacher. A new option though has risen which is now believed to be an equally great option — homeschooling. Homeschooling or home education is when the parents personally teach their children.

For those who want to learn more about homeschooling, please do attend this conference!

 

PHC 2016-For Social Media Posts (with logos) -As of Sept 27)

This year, HAPI, in cooperation with Philam Life, is setting up the PHC to be even bigger and better than before. This event is set to take place from 7 a.m. (start of registration) to 6 p.m. on October 22, 2016 at the SMX Convention Center, SMX Aura Premier in Taguig City, the PHC 2016 with the theme “From Roots to Wings: Homeschooling through the Stages”.

Hoping to meet the needs and address the concerns of homeschooling families at different stages – from learning more about homeschooling, getting started, and staying the course perhaps even up to the end of high school – the theme was inspired by the following lines of this poem:

“If I could give you just two things,
One would be Roots, the other, Wings.”
Roots, not to tie you to the ground,
But to guide you to
where your fulfillment is found
The nourishing start, the firm
foundation,
The source of your inner determination.
Wings to soar over obstacles,
wings to fly free,
Wings to glide to the heights of the
best you can be.”

Bearing the theme in mind, the PHC 2016’s line-up of speakers includes international and local speakers who are passionate homeschooling advocates, and are also experienced homeschoolers. The PHC 2016 Expo is also sure to delight any homeschooler with its offerings of products and services that can help them provide their kids with a rich learning experience.

I guarantee that this event will not disappoint. If you want to know more about the Philippine Homeschool Conference 2016, please any of the following:

S&R Membership Shopping: The Little Things Matter

Customer loyalty is very important for brands these days. With tough competition and the high cost to win new customers, it is more cost efficient to keep old clients. But not a lot of brands take this to heart. They focus so much on acquiring new customers that they forget to keep the current ones happy. Sometimes, too, brands think of so many complicated offerings or promotions that do not benefit the customer in anyway. These are oftentimes things that are deemed useless and even irrelevant to the customer. Brands and companies should think that sometimes simple things matter. This is the reason I love S&R.

Our friends and family always renew their S&R Membership Shopping. This is because S&R knows that simple things and perks can go a long way in winning customer loyalty. A very good example of one of the amazing perks of being a member is access to the upcoming Members Treat for S&R Membership Shopping happening this coming September 30.

S&R Poster

The S&R Membership Shopping – Members’ Treat sale is one of their biggest sales where they offer 50% off (yup, half the price!) and even Buy 1 Take 1 Deals for a lot of items. This great sale will happen from September 30 until October 02 nationwide. The participating stores are:

– S&R BGC
– S&R Aseana
– S&R Congressional
– S&R Alabang
– S&R Shaw
– S&R Cebu
– S&R Pampanga
– S&R Davao
– S&R Imus
– S&R Nuvali
– S&R Davao

What I am looking forward to the most is that in this sale, the items that are on sale are usually really great and useful things. Other stores would most likely have hard to sell items on display during their sale, but S&R puts on display items that a lot of us would actually buy and even buy in bulk! For this year, some of the items that I am hoping that they would sell during the sale are their Colgate Kids Mouthwash Bubblegum and UP Baby wipes for my daughter, Suave 2-in-1 Professional Shampoo and Conidtioner for little ol’ me and Irish spring soap for the hubby. Oh, wait! I also love their Ring cakes. I’m sure if you have tried that before, you would agree that the US Double Choco-chip Creme Ring Cake and the US Apple Raisin Creme Cake are to die for! I also wish that they include their Ben & Jerry Chunky Monkey ice cream and the Ben & Jerry Chocochip Cookie Dough!

These simple things matter to a simple person like me! Great deals and bargains make me happy.

Are you a loyal customer of S&R? If you’re not yet a member, I suggest that you go and sign up now for S&R Membership Shopping, so that we could go shopping together this coming September 30!

Don’t forget to share your S&R Shopping experience using #LoveSnr #SnReveryday so we could get to see what great deals you got to avail of. With these simple things, I know I will be forever loyal!

P.S. For more information on S&R membership, please checkout this page: S&R Membership
