Mommy Milkshare Event Set to Benefit Fabella Milk Bank

It’s a well-known fact that breastfeeding is best for babies. The World Health Organization states why it is so on their website, and also emphasizes that breastfeeding benefits the mothers who choose to breastfeed their babies.

 

The reality is, though, that some mothers might not be able to breastfeed their children immediately after birth for legitimate medical reasons. There are also babies whose mothers may have passed away yet still need to be nourished with breastmilk.

In cases like these, milk donations or milksharing are usually the solution. It should be noted, though, that donor milk should be screened as much as possible, to ensure that it is safe and clean for the babies who will receive it.

If you’re a breastfeeding mom, or a mom who believes in the importance of breastfeeding, you will probably also consider milksharing or donating one’s breastmilk to be a noble endeavor. Here in the Philippines, human milk banks are actually always in need of breastmilk donations, so it is good to be aware of efforts to collect human milk – like the upcoming “Mommy Milkshare” event organized by The Parenting Emporium and Honeysuckle Philippines (which is actually on its second run; the first run was held in September last year.)

received_1015962655188454

Scheduled for August 13, 2016 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at The Parenting Emporium (No. 29, 1st Street, New Manila, QC), breastfeeding mothers are invited to donate their excess breastmilk for the benefit of Fabella Human Milk Bank. Donors can choose to bring frozen breastmilk (must be expressed between June to August 2016) or express milk onsite.

 

In gratitude to the generous milk donors, VPharma’s Mega Malunggay, Mommy Treats, and Honeysuckle – brands that support milksharing – will be giving discounts on select items. Mommy Milkshare participants will also receive loot bags as a “bonus” for their kindness, which is why they are also asked to register for the event via 0917-8110821.

received_1015962665188453

So, if you are a breastfeeding mom who wants to share her “milky blessings,” head on over to The Parenting Emporium this Saturday! Your efforts and kindness will help many babies who are supported by Fabella Human Milk Bank.

Note: If you want to donate breastmilk but can’t come to Mommy Milkshare, you may contact Nurse Katrina of The Parenting Emporium at 7253723 or 7386272, and ask how to donate to the TPE Milksharing Hub.

Ashley’s Birthday Staycation at The Belmont Hotel

20160730_064224

20160720_171002My daughter Alyssa Ashley Namilit just turned 5 last July 20, 2016 and we have recently celebrated her birthday at Belmont Hotel.

home_facade

At Belmont Hotel Manila, you’re right at the heart of enjoyment, entertainment, and relaxation, with the bustling Pasay City as your backdrop.

Located within the vibrant Newport City and adjacent to the Terminal 3 of Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA), this 4-star hotel is the perfect point for her birthday celebration to relax after a hectic week.

A month before her birthday I gave her options for her celebration. She chose to have a staycation just like what we did with her brother’s birthday which we have stayed at Ace Hotel and Suites last week.

And very timely, her ninong has a unit at Belmont Hotel and he offered this as a birthday gift for Ashley. Being a unit owner, he has 30 nights stay priviledge.

The regular rate per night at Belmont Hotel is P4,480 net only (hotel tax is not yet included) for the superior room. However, if you wanted to make a reservation he is offering it for much lower fixed rate. You must book 2-3 weeks in advance prior to check in date for availability and validation. A refundable deposit of P2,000 should be paid at the hotel as a bond for any incidentals during the stay. You may claim it in full upon check out.

The hotel receptionists are pretty and accommodating. The hotel lobby is quite small and lack of seats for the guests. I hope they might do something about this next time as they just on their soft opening stage.

The place is nice and cozy. Simple yet somehow inviting, I mean it is pleasing to the eyes.

Then there is the Cafe Belmont at the left side of the hotel desk. Their buffet rate is 900. I haven’t tried it since we have already booked a dinner buffet at Maxim’s for only 400 pesos and below 5 years old is free of charge. (Pictures and other details posted at the bottom of the blog post).

Our room is at the right corner 2nd floor.

We just stay for a while to give Ashley my another birthday gift. Can you guess what it is? It is soft and smells sweet cupcakes.

Then we went to the rooftop for a nice swim at their swimming pool.

The pool is quite small but not crowded. It think most of the guests here prefer to go to Casino as it is just walking distance from the hotel. Well its a good thing because we can swim freely.

20160723_15210520160724_08415620160724_084203

What I like about their swimming pool is it has heater. And that is what I am looking for as Ashley easily gets cold. Most outdoor swimming pools that I have tried were cold through out the day and no heaters available. That is why we are happy with Ace Hotel and Suites at first because Ashley can swim for as long as 4 hours. Now she really did enjoy swimming at Belmont at anytime of the day. So to all parents whose kids that are easily get cold, I highly recommend this hotel because their pool has heater.

There are 2 life guards at the mini bar. I think they are also the bartenders. Outside food and drinks are allowed. You can order at the counter you if want. You may also borrow kick board for the kids. And towels are also available. The CR is ok they have 3 cubicles and 3 shower rooms.

Then at dinner, we were assisted by my landlady who has a contact with Maxim’s. She we bought 2 dinner buffet vouchers that costs P400 each. Ashley is still free of charge. Dinner buffet normally cost P1,200 and available from 6pm to 10pm at Maxim’s 5th floor Resorts World Manila.

This year we get to celebrate their birthdays intimately. I find it so relaxing and I am craving for more of this. I am so happy my children chose to have a birthday staycation because I can spend my time with them just relaxing.

So if you want to spend your special day or just wanted to have a break on your busy week. I recommend to book at The Belmont hotel. (You may contact me if you want to avail of the special rate).

Ballet First Position: The Halili Cruz School of Ballet Bloggers Conference

20160722_170139

What comes to your mind when you heard the word ballet? Do you think of pink tutu dresses, ballet flat shoes, fine young ladies dancing gracefully in a classical music?

Do you once dream to be a ballerina? Or you wish that your little girl to become one?

20160718_144850

What does Ballet means and what is it all about?

Ballet is an art form created by the movement of the human body. It is theatrical performed on a stage to an audience utilizing costumes, scenic design and lighting. It can tell a story or express a thought or emotion. An artistic dance full of emotions and passion.

When I was in Elementary at Santa Isabel College, they taught us ballet positions during P.E. Class. They did that to teach us proper posture and discipline. It was part of our fundamental exercise.

On July 18, 2016  The Halili-Cruz School of Ballet and TAG Media invited Bloggers for their first Bloggers Conference held at their main studio in Quezon Avenue.

FB_IMG_1468918462897

Members of Media and Bloggers with The Associate Artistic Directors Grace Garalde-Perez and Anna Kathrina Halili-Cruz Bueno.

This conference is beneficial for me as I am looking forward to continue my daughter’s ballet lesson.

She took ballet lesson last year as a summer workshop. But this year she tried Baby Hiphop. I can see that she really loves dancing but I need to find out what suits her best and be constant with it. And offcourse, considering what her heart truly wants.

This conference is very timely, because I have a chance to know more about other ballet school first before I decide to enroll my child.

When looking for a ballet school you must first consider the

1. Foundation

artistic team

Shirley Halili Cruz’s inspiration to endeavor into dance education began as early as when she was 15 years old, when her ballet teacher Bonnie Weinstein Clalagopi entrusted to her the dance classes that Ms. Clalagopi was handling. She taught ballet, Polynesian and Jazz in Siena College, St. Paul College and Angelicum School, Quezon City in 1974. From then on, she has taken the career path as a ballerina and as an educator.
The Halili-Cruz School of Ballet (HSCB) was established in 1985 to realize Shirley’s dream to share her love and passion for dance. The school was born of her conviction that in every child lies a bud of artistic sense that may blossom into a great and exquisite artistry. HCSB opened with 46 students but is now a talents galore about a thousand promising dance aspirants.
2. Location and The School Structure
HCSB Building Facade
The HCSB main studio is housed in an imposing two-storey edifice of modern architecture located at 1227 Quezon Avenue, Quezon City. It has 4 spacious studios (3 of which are fully air-conditioned) equipped with ideal barres, resilient wooden floors, full-length mirrors and audio systems, dressing rooms, rest and shower rooms, waiting area, ample parking space and canteen.  It also has a dance shop that carries all dance items and a costume room.  The school has a good collection of classical music and videos of classical dances.

School QuadrangleStudio 1studio 5

What I like about it is that it was easy to find. Indeed accessible to public transportation. Although I am from Villamor Air Base, Pasay City it is convenient for us to travel going to HCSB and back.

1. I may ride a train at MRT Taft then get off to Quezon Avenue Station and ride a jeep going to Fishermall. The school is easy to spot because it is located along the Quezon Avenue just tell the driver to drop you off Halili.
2. I may ride a shuttle service at Resorts World going to Mcdonalds Panay QC. Then jeep going to Fishermall. (You need to be a RW Membership Card Holder to be able to use the service. I have save 56 pesos back and forth).
3. FREE TRIAL CLASS and ASSESSMENT BASE ON THE CHILD’S CAPABILITY.

FB_IMG_146891846648420160718_15430620160718_154421

This is very important for us parents and specially to our children. A free trial with an actual lesson will help us parents to check our child’s level of interest, the number of students in a class, the relationship of the teachers to their students, the lessons, and will our they enjoy and gain from it.

I am the type of parent that is “Segurista” I want to make sure the worth of what I paid for. I want to check first if this school and the lesson suit for her. Especially for those parents who let their kids to join ballet class as early as 3 years old.

Check out their free lesson with HCSB Ballet Baby 2.

In Ashley’s previous school they did not offer a free trial or assessment. They just depend on the age of the child. Once you interested you need to pay the workshop fee in full. So if your child doesn’t want to participate or go to class anymore you cannot get a refund.

That’s the good thing about free trial and once they give it to you no string attached.

3. SYLLABUS or THE LESSONS

In order to provide an appropriate and comprehensive program, Shirley Halili-Cruz, the school’s director and founder authored a 2 level Tiny Tots Syllabus, 5 level Baby Ballet Syllabus and a 12 level Classical Ballet Syllabus based on the Filipino physique, innate artistic ability and culture.

The syllabi cover the different levels of ballet which the HCSB offers all year round.  Aside from the syllabi authored by Shirley, the school enhances its program by letting its faculty and students attend different local and international dance workshops, festivals and competitions. They also developed a systematic promotion procedure that checks the progress of the students through semi-annual oral and written examination coupled with actual evaluation in both theoretical and practical aspects of the discipline.

4. Teachers are Highly Properly Trained.

The good thing about HCSB is that they are staffed by competent teachers who are all one with the director in the vision to equip its student with tools and rudiments of the art uphold excellence in dance training.

184b7cb84d7b456c96a0bdfbbeaa5f14_M

Consistency. Your child will be taught by the same teacher every session since day 1. This build trust and comfort between the teacher and student. Just like a second home in which the relationship is like a family.

FACULTY MEMBERS

Since this is a school not just a summer workshop for kids. It is best to get to know the Directors and Teachers.

5. Ballet School List of Accomplishment and Awards.

You can tell the quality of a ballet school from its “Output” or performances and achievements of the students.

All of the ballerinas dance gracefully and dedication.

And right before my very eyes I saw how beautiful they’ve dance. Even in just a small live conference each and every ballerinas dance majestically.

Here is a video clip of their live performance:

The Halili-Cruz School of Ballet has garnered more than 300 national and international awards and prizes, among them are:

  • Hall of Fame,  Aliw Award  as Best Classical Dance Company in the Philippines
  • 8- time Ani ng Dangal Awardee for its international achievements

6. Reviews, Feedbacks, Based on Experiences.

We are very lucky that we are already in the advance computer age. That everything you need to know is just a click of a button. You don’t need to go to places and ask people personally about their views and experiences. Today, social media gives us vast information. There are blogs, articles, Facebook reviews, and testimonies on HCSB website.

Well, I am just lucky that one of the bloggers at the conference has been their student and that is Armi Paz Pineda. She shared to us her wonderful experience at HCSB and how she strive on her own just to enroll and pursue her passion in Ballet.

She advise us to start young and she can see that my daughter will be a ballerina someday.

7. Ballet Uniforms, Class Schedule and Tuition Fees.

We must bear in mind that high quality education and dance classes like this doesn’t come cheap. However, I must say that HCSB is affordable or let me say “Sulit ang ibabayad mo”.

Look at the uniforms and the quality of the fabric. The designs are unique and oh so cute!

I am definitely going to enroll Ashley in this school. But wait there’s more…

We, mommy bloggers also got to tried their special ballet lesson. Check out our video courtesy of my daughter, Alyssa Ashley.

Oh my, I thought ballet is easy. Because when I look at my daughter doing body stretching she still got a smile on her face. But I need to do this so that my daughter has something to look forward to. That her mommy isn’t afraid or shy to try anything. Just do it and do it with all your heart.

Thank you and I salute my fellow mommy bloggers who have stretched those hard-earned baby fats with me 😜.

And tears almost fall down 😢 when I heard my little girl said in the video”My mommy is really good”. I love it when my daughter is very proud of me and that she appreciates me a lot. Thank you again HCSB for giving me this opportunity.

My eyes got bigger and my heart is jumping for joy when they gave us free one month ballet class as a token for celebrating their 30 years of Excellence.

Thank you so much Halili Cruz School of Ballet for being so generous it was a perfect birthday gift for my daughter 2 days after the conference.

Step Up Your Cooking with PORKSAVOR’s newest Ambassadors

IMG_8473

20160706_104216Ajinomoto Philippines Corporation puts together a media activity to showcase the brand PORKSAVOR® All-in-One Seasoning Mix with its new brand ambassadors Mr. Enrique Gil and his mother Mrs. Bambi Gil.

20160706_104446

True to the activity entitled “Step Up Your Cooking with PORKSAVOR®”, Ms. Nancy Reyes-Lumen and the brand ambassadors conducted live cooking demonstrations in a bid to challenge homemakers to step up their cooking and bring out the meaty goodness of home-cooked dishes using PORKSAVOR®.

The show kitchen of the Center for Culinary Arts was filled with the delicious meaty aroma of dishes cooked for the audience.

20160702_151546

According to Ms. Daryl Magno, Ajinomoto’s Category Manager – Flavor Seasonings, “Filipinos love food with strong meaty flavors and PORKSAVOR® can provide meaty taste and aroma for all types of dishes because it is made from natural pork meat and bone extract, complete with spices and seasonings.”

IMG_8038 - Copy

Here are the recipes for your reference.

PORKSAVOR® can provide the meaty taste in dishes even without meat. Using PORKSAVOR®, Ms. Nancy Reyes-Lumen cooked meatless pancit, which makes a great high fiber snack for those limiting their cholesterol intake.

IMG_8283

Mrs. Bambi Gil, who knows her way around the kitchen, also helped prepare the PORKSAVOR® Veggie Soup and Pastel dishes. Both recipes are a step up from the usual ‘pambaon’ ideas and are likewise perfect for the rainy season.

IMG_8184

The mother and son tandem of Bambi and Enrique Gil are thrilled to endorse a one-of-a-kind product like PORKSAVOR®.

IMG_8455IMG_8471

While taping for the commercial, Enrique was fascinated with the burst of meatiness as he sampled food cooked with PORKSAVOR®. Mommy Bambi loves to cook for her 3 children, and PORKSAVOR® can help her put in the effort to make meal times truly enjoyable for the whole family.

The audience got a chance to interview Enrique Gil. We found out that he is not a picky eater when it comes to vegetables as his mother taught him to try and eat varieties of vegetables at a young age. However, one thing he is not fond of, and it is vinegar “suka” as in pure. But if it was combined or cooked into other “ulam” like adobo he definitely eat it. Specially if his Mom cooks it.

After the cooking session, the newest ambassadors had “photo ops” with the press and bloggers.

 

There is Lani Lutz the Admin of Mommy Bloggers Philippines with her pretty daughter. (Top Right) Reylen Castro of  “Made It Through Mom” and Lariza Garcia of “Mom’s World of Art and Happiness”.
