GummyBox PH: Cool Activities for Kids (In a Box!)

As a mom, you know how hard it is to look for activities for your kids. With a hyper active child like mine, I needed to research and look for things that she can go to or do at home. Although, I found something that’s a super lifesave for me. It’s called GummyBox PH. GummyBox designs themed activity boxes that contain hands-on craft and science projects for kids at home. So perfect for our kids, right?! These activities are for kids aged 4 to 8 years.

So Gummybox is a box that you get when you subscribe. They have a mini box at P1,050 per box and a standard box at P2,050. They can deliver for FREE if you live in Makati and deliver to other places, but shipping will depend on the area and region where you want to have the box delivered.

Zeeka received a box called Monster Mania. It was so perfect for her since she loves monsters! haha! The standard box contains 3 activities. I was so impressed with the quality of the materials inside the box. They had Gummybox branded glue sticks, tape dispenser, etc.

Each activity had easy-to-follow instructions with drawings and illustrations that my little girl could follow. The activities were very apt for a 4 year old. Gummybox really made the activities open-ended so that children
across ages can build, create, connect, learn and think at different levels.

My husband and I actually bonded with our daughter over creating monsters.

Guess which one’s mine! 🙂 haha!

Fine! Mine’s the yellow one! My husband fixed it after. haha!

Babyzen Yoyo+ Stroller!

When I was single, I used to wonder in amazement at how moms could do so many things at the same time. I would see moms breastfeeding in the mall while working on a laptop. I would see some really petite moms carry a 3 year old child on one hand and two grocery bags using the other. How do these women do it?! And then, I became a mom.

I understood how things are. No one understands how enticing multi-purpose products are for us. No one understands that time is so valuable, since you have to take care of the baby, go to work, prepare meals, fix your makeup, breastfeed, etc. My daughter is now four, and we’re planning to have a baby next year. With being the OC mom that I am, as early as now, I’m already researching on the things that I will probably need.

 

This week, I have been researching about strollers. The first stroller that I researched about is from Babyzen and it’s called the YOYO+. Babyzen is a French brand, and is available in different countries like France, US, Europe, Australia, Canada, Iceland, etc. This brand now makes its way to the Philippines.

During the preview of Babyzen, I got to see the cool features of this baby stroller:

  • Compact design and one second fold: In an instant, you can fold this stroller. It folds to a really compact size (folded dimensions 52 x 44 x 18 cm) that you can actually hand carry it inside a plane and store it in the overhead compartment of an aircraft. Although, you still have to check with the airline if you plan to bring your Yoyo+ inside the plane since cabin luggage standards may vary according to the airline or plane.
  • The modern look with 8 different colors: The Babyzen Yoyo+ comes in 8 different colors — Peppermint, Blue, Black, Gray, Taupe, Ginger, Pink and Red. What I like ahout the YOYO+ fabrics is that it can easily be taken off and machine washed at 30°C. No more hassle in trying to clean our strollers, moms!
  • Very lightweight: Most of the strollers that I see are very bulky and hard to open, pack or even manoeuvre on your own as a mom. You oftentimes need dad’s help or at least another person to hold the baby, while you fold or set up your stroller. With Babyzen Yoyo+, you can actually do these with one hand!

Check out the cool things that happened during the preview of Babyzen Philippines!

Matilda: The Musical by Atlantis Theatrical Entertainment Group

One of my favorite movies is Matilda! A year ago, we watched it again since it was first released in 1996, together with our daughter. She was three years old at that time. When I heard that this was turned into a play, I was excited to watch it. I was even more excite to find out that this internationally acclaimed musical, Matilda, will be produced and shown here in Manila by Atlantis Theatrical Entertainment Group. The opening night will be on November 10!

One of the things that I looked at right away were the people who will be playing the different significant roles. The role of Matilda will be played by Telesa Marie “Esang” De Torres, whose most notable works include ABS-CBN’s The Voice, and the Les Miserables Asian tour, Uma Naomi Martin, who has made her theater debut in A Little Princess, and Felicity Kyle Napuli, who has been recognized as Outstanding Child Performer at the Gawad Musika Awards.

The other cast members who will be Matilda’s wacky and charming classmates are namely Gabrielle Aerin Ong and Maria Ericka Peralejo as Lavander; Denise Fidel Arteta and Chi Chi Tan as Amanda; Nicole Chien and Ella Gonzalez as Alice; Alba Berenguer-Testa and Chantel Marie Guinid as Hortensia; Josh Nubla and Miguel Suarez as Bruce; Rhythm Alexander and Ian Albert Magallona as Eric; Gabo Tiongson and Pablo Miguel Palacpac as Nigel; and John Joseph Miraflores and Teddy Velasco as Tommy.

The Wormwoods

Of course, I also wanted to know who will be playing the adult roles. Due to give some show-stopping performances are Jamie Wilson (37 years of acting experience) as Miss Trunchbull. He has made the theater his home since the age of seven, appearing in numerous critically acclaimed productions such as Pippin, Almost Maine, Jersey Boys: The Story of Frankie Valli; The Four Seasons, and Run For Your Wife.

Cris Villonco will play Miss Honey. Cris, who rose to stardom as a solo artist best known for her hit single “Crush ng Bayan”, and has since then has made a name for herself in the world of theater and film. She recently appeared as Alison in Atlantis’s Fun Home.

Joaquin Valdes will play Mr. Wormwood. Joaquin is not a stranger to the Philippine theater scene. He started as a performer at a very young age and took a break from it working in advertising for eight years.

Carla Guevara-Laforteza  will play the wife, Mrs. Wormwood. Carla, who is a Miss Saigon alumni, has performed with Atlantis in many productions including Nine, The Addams Family, Saturday Night Fever and Avenue Q.

Emeline Celis-Guinid will be Mrs. Phelps. Emeline has started performing at seven years old and has been seen in Atlantis musicals such as Rock of Ages, The Bridges of Madison County, Jersey Boys and Saturday Night Fever.

Nel Gomez, who will be playing Michael Wormwood, has been acting for 10 years, was most recently seen in Kinky Boots.

Bibo as Rudolpho, started his acting venture with The Ateneo Blue Repertory, was last seen on the Atlantis musical stage as Bob Crowe in Jersey Boys. The energetic ensemble consists of many of the country’s most dynamic performers.

To complete the cast are Steven Conde, Tim Pavino, Rhenwyn Gabalonzo, Teetin Villanueva, Gerhard Krystoffer, Alex Reyes, Jim Andrew Ferrer, Gabby Padilla and Mica Fajardo.

Matilda is directed by Bobby Garcia, Choreography by Cecile Martinez, Lighting Design by Driscoll Otto, Musical Direction by Farley Asuncion, Set Design by Faust Peneyra, Costume Design by Raven Ong, Sound Design by Kevin Heard, Vocal Coaching by ManMan Angsico, Assistant Direction by Steven Conde, Assistant Choreography by Jim Ferrer, and Assistant Vocal Coaching by Rhenwyn Gabalonzo.

Why Should you Read The Finishers

When creating a technology-based business, you can’t help but be inspired by the stories of Mark Zuckerberg, Steve Jobs or Elon Musk. One cannot imagine the seemingly unfathomable challenges that they conquered to get to where they are. Reading and watching their stories have inspired people around the globe, including our kababayans. But even when the world is a little bit smaller (or maybe event a lot smaller!) than before, most of us still think that the path to greatness only lie in a few parts of the world.

We’d love to be the next Mark Zuckerberg or Jessica Alba, but we still think that we, in the Philippines, may not have a chance. We think that we are still worlds apart, and that dream may never be a reality.

Don’t just let go of your dreams just yet, as this book called The Finishers, may be just what you need. Do you know that in this book, Ezra Ferraz, the author and a good friend of mine, documents 11 stories of founders who have successfully made exits.

An exit strategy is a contingency plan that is executed by an investor, trader, venture capitalist or business owner to liquidate a position in a financial asset or dispose of tangible business assets once certain predetermined criteria for either has been met or exceeded. (Read more here: Exit Strategy http://www.investopedia.com/terms/e/exitstrategy.asp#ixzz4q0aqrY1L). The dream is really to achieve an exit.

And it’s quite a surprise that not everyone really know that we have founders here in the Philippines who have actually exited. “All of these founders hail from different industries. They have different functional expertise. Some are Filipino born and raised. Others are balikbayans. Still others are immigrants. Yet they all find common ground in the shared belief that you can build a world-class tech company right here in the Philippines.”

I have started reading the book and one of the things that I like about this book is that it brings us closer to reality — the reality that we can also achieve our dreams and ambitions, and we can actually make it big in the global tech arena. We often think that only startups in places like Silicon Valley, Tel Aviv or Singapore can make it big. We, too, can create, build and lead a company that can change how the things work in a global scale.

Another reality is that everyone can have a bright idea, but it all boils down to how bad the founder wants it. From the stories that I have read, most of these founders persevered even amidst competition, barriers, uncertainty, etc. They executed ideas and strategies, pivoted when something did’t work and were all relentless.

So if you have a dream, go for it! The Finishers, by author Ezra Ferras, will help you stay motivated and inspired throughout your start-up journey. It will give you a glimpse into the life that you will have and a peek into a life that you can have.

The Finishers will also be available for purchase at The Freelancer Fair: http://manilaworkshops.com/events/thefreelancerfair2017

 

 

Beauty and the Beast from REP Theater (Yey!!!)

When I was a child, I loved going to plays and musicals. I loved collecting different playbills. I loved to read, so I was amazed at how they can bring all of these stories to life. Being a stage performer is one of the my frustrations! haha!

I’d love my daughter to experience these plays and witness the amazing talented performers that we have in the Philippines. What better way to introduce her to plays, but to start with a story that she already knows. We all love Beauty and the Beast, right moms? I’m so excited to share with you that REP is bringing this magical and timeless fairytale to life at Onstage, Greenbelt 1 from August 12 to December 14!

REP’s staging of Beauty and the Beast is this year’s production of the REP Theater for Young Audiences, which is celebrating its 25th anniversary. Cara Barredo, Alana Vincente, Jill Ita-as, and Maya Encila are set to play Beauty, while Arnel Carrion, Jos Jalbuena, Hans Eckstein, and George Schultz will be portraying the Beast.

I can’t wait how REP Theater will tell the tale of a loving father who wanders into an enchanted garden as he takes shelter from a storm. Since he promised his daughter Belle (Beauty), the youngest of his three daughters, that he would bring her home a rose, he decides to pick one, unknowingly angering the Beast who owns the garden. As punishment for the “crime” that he committed, the Beast demands that Beauty live with him in his castle in exchange for her father’s freedom. Little does Beauty know that her captor is under a spell that can only be broken by true love.

Don’t miss this spellbinding show directed by REP’s Artistic Director and founder of REP Theater for Young Audiences Joy Virata, with book written by Peter de Valle and John Ahearn, music by Michael Valenti, and lyrics by Elsa Rael.

Master of Myself: A Mom’s Day Out from Sun Life Financial Philippines

Today, I feel in control.

Don’t you have those days where you wake up, and you feel that everything is in the right place — that each thing is where it should be. And even if you know that it’s not, you have that feeling in your gut that you can and WILL get to where you want to be in the near future. That’s how I feel today. It must be, because of the spontaneous Mom’s Day out activity that I attended sponsored by Sun Life Financial Philippines yesterday (I’m all eager, willing and able to go for my dreams), or, it actually may be something else. I really can’t give you a proper reason, so that you, moms may replicate what I did to get to this state.

Today, I feel in control!

But what I’ve learned yesterday from the guest psychologist, Michele Alignay, is that this feeling of being in control, may not last, and it’s okay. As they say, in life, the one thing in life that’s constant is change. And what better way to show these changes in a mom’s life and our changing relationship with our children, but through this video or #SunShorts shared by Sun Life Financial Philippines (She Said, She Said). This video really struck a cord. I may look like I’m super in control of things, and it may look like that I never get mad, but there are times where I really shout and lose my cool at my daughter and at people I love. There are times that I break down, I cry (for no reason) and I get frustrated and depressed. I totally was able to relate with the mom in the video! Super naiyak ako!

We will have it easy if we accept, prepare and plan for changes that may or may not happen. As a mom, I think it’s harder for us since we have a lot of things on our minds. In this economy where the standard is to have double income households, most of the moms I know, balance working/earning a decent living, taking care of the children and taking care of themselves. And truly, it’s a struggle to find that perfect “balance”. This is why I like the definition of balance that was presented yesterday.

 

If we are looking for that balance, where balance comes from the idea that everything should be at equal states or everything should be given equal time, you’re on the wrong track. Balancing is about 1) knowing ourselves, 2) process of continually centering energy with the cooperation and conscious support of all other parts.

Yesterday’s talk was really inspiring, and it reminded me that I should constantly ask these three questions:

  1. What do I want?
  2. What do I think I “Ought to do”?
  3. What I think I can do?

At any given point in our lives, we will have something that we want more than our other wants. We will have something that we “ought to do” and we will know what we can do. After hearing this during the Mom’s Day Out of Sun Life Financial Philippines, being a mindful mom now comes into play when every day, I accept that I can only do so much in 24 hours. I have learned howt o prioritize. I have learned to say “no”, and moving forward, I will focus on things that are truly essential.

Moms Tippy, Patty, Yours Truly, Jackie and Kelly at the Mom’s Day out Event of Sun Life Financial Philippines

It’s nice to think that we can be like Wonder Woman, or even just be like Gal Gadot (haha!) every time — so in control with her “I’ve got this!” attitude.  But we only human and I’m sure even Gal Gadot goes through times where she feels vulnerable. But what we need to be mindful of is that we have a choice on how we can emotionally react to these things. Will we intentionally remain in that state of peace and satisfaction or will we succumb to the judgement of others or worse, fall into the trap of judging ourselves and feeling guilty about not living up to our own expectations of ourselves?

So today, after a rejuvenating massage given by I’m Hotel Spa, after the amazing loot bag that I’ve received, after that delicious buffet from Bloom at I’m Hotel, after the great and inspirational talks from Michele and Mylene Segismundo from Sun Life Financial Philippines Cluster Head Manila, I have decided to feel peace and satisfaction. I wrote down all of the Practical ways for Self-Care that was shared:

Perception

  1. Affirm your goodness
  2. Release Control (of things beyond you)
  3. Saying NO is okay (and needed at times)
  4. Feeling happy and satisfied is normal
  5. Relinquish some task that stresses you

Emotions

  1. During emotional highs: PAUSE
  2. Ditch the guilt
  3. Choose to love more
  4. Be silly with the kids
  5. Flirt with your spouse! Make your marriage matter.

Actions

  1. Choose to rest or sleep
  2. Give yourself an extra 10 minutes in the shower
  3. Put a little color in your face
  4. Find a spot for daily reflection
  5. Find a daily physical activity that you can do

All of these tips of Michele were great and I intend to do it! So guess what, the first thing that I did today, was I met with my Sun Life Financial Advisor. There is something about having your finances in place that satisfies you (well, that’s how I personally feel at least! haha). I learned about their educational fund product. I actually have savings already for Zeeka’s College stored in Mutual Funds, but I thought of a back up.

I’m getting another policy from Sun Life Financial Philippines (which I will write about in another blog post), and I’m excited! haha! I know that’s a weird thing to say about getting a policy, but that’s exactly how I feel. I feel wonder woman-ish today!

So if you are looking to feel the way that I do today, join the next Mom’s Day Out events on July 1 and 15.

Cheers to a peaceful and content life, mindful moms! Let’s all say I’ll be the Master of Myself!

Love,

Mommy Ginger

 

 

Safeguard Science Discovery Tour

Early this month, I got an email from one of the brands that I love, Safeguard. They were asking us if Zeeka and I would be interested to go to Singapore to go on a Safeguard Science Discovery Tour. I said “yes”, of course! Who would say no to a vacation “date” with my daughter where we get to learn new things, too? It’s basically the perfect combination of two aspects of my life — time with my daughter and learning!
img_7463

Everything went on quickly and before we knew it, we had packed our bags and were in the airport at 4:30 am. I personally was so *kilig* to be amidst really great mom bloggers and influencers like Cat, Jackie, Shari, Nikka, Kath, Lace and Rochelle. We actually talked about syncing outfits for the trip! This bunch was a good group to travel with.

On the plane, Zeeka was so behaved! :)

We landed safely in Singapore at around 11:20 am. We were picked up by our tour guide, Patrick. Patrick was a funny guy. When you ask Zeeka now what she wants to be, she will tell you that she wants to be like Patrick, a tour guide. He certainly made a great impression with the kids. We arrived at Hotel Chancellor, which was along Orchard road around noon. We had “free time” that entire afternoon, so Zeeka and I decided to hit the mall after eating at a Hawkers place with Carla from Parenttown and Rochelle.

I loved that the location of hotel was very strategic. Orchard road was walkable and there were a lot of malls nearby. That afternoon, I got to grab a cup of coffee from Starbucks to which Zeeka said, “Starbucks agaaaain, Mommy?!”. I also got to purchase a cash register toy for her, which I may add was a good decision since that made her get up right way the next morning (just to play with it).

With Cat and Asher, Jackie and Gabbie, Shari and Selene and Nikka and Michelle :)

With Cat and Asher, Jackie and Gabbie, Shari and Selene and Nikka and Michelle 🙂

That evening, we had dinner with the P&G representative at Pizza Mozzeria at Marina Bay Sands. We were especially excited for what will happen the next day!

The Safeguard Science Discovery Tour

We had to travel to the Safeguard Innovation Centre at 8:00 am. We were welcomed at the lobby of the P&G Office. As I gathered, this is where Research and Development is done. This was the first time that they were opening their doors to outsider to actually learn more about germs and see how Safeguard bar soaps are made. Zeeka, I and the rest of the party were really excited.

day-2-c

We were then led to the conference room for a short briefing on the history of Safeguard. Safeguard antibacterial skin care was launched in 1966, as an effective way of removing germs and inhibiting germ regrowth. From a marketing perspective, I think they did a very good job in preserving the brand equity.

day-2-f

Alex Vogler, P&G Beauty Digital Communications APAC head, taking us through the history of Safeguard.

We each had our own lab coats and glasses! Zeeka and I both loved the feeling that we were like scientists trying to discover something amazing!

day-2-e

day-2-d

We were then led to a room which looked like a home. This was where the kids were taught about germs by being germ hunters! Three of them where given UV flashlights and all of them had to look for the part of the house where most of the germs were found.

day-2-j

After the Germ hunting activity, the mommies where led to listen to Safeguard’s research and development team and health experts from the Philippine Association of Medical Technologists (PAMET) on modern day germ threats and how Safeguard provides superior skin germ protection through live and exciting demonstrations and activities. Prior to our flight to Singapore, PAMET Experts visited our house and collected germ samples. During our discussion, they gave us the type of germs that were found in our homes. One of the germs found was Streptococcus, which actually causes Pneumonia. The other one is E. coli Shigella Campylobacter which causes diarrhea. As a mom, it was so scary to think that these were actual germs that are inside OUR HOUSE!

day-2-q

Angelica Caranza, Microbiology Section Head of the P&G Singapore Innovation Center talks about different types of germs and the diseases and infections they can cause

Could we do anything to avoid infection and diseases? Of course, we can. One of the things that we can do is regularly wash our hands. I cannot stress the importance of this. Not to scare you but here are some trivia on germs and bacteria.

  • The number of bacteria that live in and on us outnumber our own human cells by ten to one.
  • Common cold, flu and stomach viruses can live on our fingertips for hours and they survive on the surfaces of objects for days.
  • 80% of all infections, from the common cold and flu to Ebola fever, are transmitted by people touching one another or touching objects that others have touched.
  • According to a Mayo clinic slogan, “The ten worst sources of contagion are our fingers”. We touch our eyes, noses, and mouths, more than twenty times a day.
  • Phones have been found to have up to 4200 bacteria from fecal contamination. Safe drinking water should have less than 1 bacteria per 100ml.

day-2-p

 

While typing this, I was reading it out loud to my husband, and he told me to stop it. “Gross, gah!” These facts are super scary, but I am at ease reading this because I use Safeguard at home. After the lecture on germs, we were shown how Safeguard bars are made and what makes it effective in combating germs.

Safeguard

img_7715

Check this out! I made this — well, the stamp at least! haha!

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. The proprietary Germshield+ technology stops the regrowth of bacteria and fungi up to 24 hours, thereby providing optimal protection. What’s more, is that Safeguard does this while protecting and keeping your skin’s moisture! This was proven in an activity that they kids did.

img_7742

They had to wash petals in three dishes: One with watere (just water), one with Safeguard liquid soap, and the last one with a competitor’s soap. As you can see, the petal with Safeguard was still fresh and intact. Zeeka’s petal in the competitor’s dish turned lack on the edges and tore 🙁

img_7744

img_7740

That day made me think of the choices that I make for my family. The truth is that you can never run away from germs, but you can choose the perfect tool that you can use to combat them. I am glad that I have discovered the benefits of using Safeguard and I’m really proud to be part of the Safeguard Family.
