Ladies and gentlemen, the Science Circus has come to town!

PRESS RELEASE

1. Science Circus entrance

MANILA, Philippines – Science Circus: Step Right Up! is the latest traveling exhibition of The Mind Museum, showcasing the amusing, the peculiar, and the extraordinary in our everyday experiences, in the form of interactive exhibits that deceive the senses and boggle the mind. Be ready to #EnterTheScienceCircus this coming October 28, 2016!

While the nearly 250-year history of the circus abounds with awe-inspiring demonstrations of physical skill – such as high-flying aerial artists, to death-defying daredevils – the Science Circus challenges our traditional notions of a circus by focusing on the mind’s “acrobatic” perceptual tricks.

2. Inside Science Circus

As the guests enter the exhibition, they are welcomed by a festive, colorful façade which sets the tone for the sights and sounds they are about to experience. These interactive exhibits are displayed simultaneously in three adjacent Rings. Guests can go in any of the Rings in the order they please.

Ring One, or Deception Perception is a menagerie of exhibits that will prompt you to question whether to see is to believe. Can you always trust your senses? Is what you see as real as it seems? Can your brain produce motion where there is none? Your first venture into the Circus will unveil the “blindness” of your mind’s eye.

3. Inside Science Circus

Ring Two highlights Pieces of Incredible Engineering, where guests can engage their minds in puzzles and relish how math and art come together. This central area is animated by simple machines, and engages guests in activities that evoke their inner engineer.

4. Automaton Circus performers_1

Last but not least, Ring Three is Encounters with the Masters, where guests can interact with and learn the secrets of the Masters of Illusion. They can take on the challenges posed by each Master, and discover how our brains can be ensnared by smoke and mirrors.

4. Automaton Circus performers_2

The Science Circus: Step Right Up! exhibition vividly illustrates how our everyday experiences are full of delightful secrets that we can uncover, to discover more about ourselves and the world around us.

The Mommy Bloggers Philippines Mad Hatter Party 2016

It was our second time to join the Mommy Bloggers Philippines’ (MBP) annual trick or treating event. For this year, The Mind Museum, the Philippines’ first interactive science museum, graciously hosted the venue for our blogging community. My family and I have been to the Mind Museum three times already but we have yet to fully explore its scientific wonders. By the way, the Museum has seasonal special exhibits, the most recent one was Dino Play (which ended last September 30 and we had tons of fun in that exhibit!) and it has an upcoming Science Circus which opens on October 28.

Going back to our MBP party… I actually liked this year’s celebration better than last year in terms of proximity and type of venue. This year was more private as we had the Special Exhibit Hall all to ourselves and our loved ones. Mommy bloggers had more time to fellowship with one another and our kids were able to play with each other. We still had to chase our little ones around but I was fine with it because the area was closed and there was a guard on standby so I didn’t worry that my son would go farther away from me. I just got a bit confused as there were too many boys who chose to be Spiderman that day – the costume that my son chose over the little engineer outfit that I planned for him to wear.

Lani of Tweenselmom.com hosted a simple program for us. She made the kids wearing costumes go up the stage in batches so us moms could check out and vote the ones with the most creative outfits. We do have the Mad Hatter / Alice in Wonderland theme this year but Lani, Joy of Joybites.com and Louisa of ArtofBeingAMom.com, the power ladies behind MBP, have given the attendees a heads up that our kids could come as they want to be. A great decision, in my opinion, as most kids, especially the younger ones like mine, are not too fond of wearing elaborate costumes. Case in point: My son who chose to slip on his ultra comfy Spiderman long sleeved shirt rather than put on a helmet, wear a more dapper shirt.

My son and I had fun in this party. I like that it was more laidback, good for me since I am still recovering from lower back pain. I appreciated the sponsors who generously sent goodies for all the mommies and our kids as well as the suppliers who participated that day. To know more about them, please read the MBP Press Release below and check out their websites and social media pages. Their products and services are seriously worth being part of your next event :) Some of the photos were taken by our sweet and friendly photographer, R. Vercide Photography.

Nourished and Pampered with Baby Care Plus and Kids Plus

This post was made in collaboration with Tupperware Brands. All opinions stated are mine.

Growing up, our family has been using Tupperware products for our meal preparations, condiments, baon, picnic effects as well as a catch-all for our various thingamajigs. Up until I was in high school, I have seen how the Tupperware products have evolved – how the serving dish, canisters and foodkeepers and their colors have changed and how the brand has innovated to keep up with the changing needs of its market.

In 2007, Tupperware Philippines merged with Sara Lee Direct Selling Philippines and then became Fullerlife Direct Selling Philippines. The company is now known as Tupperware Brands Philippines with product categories including dishware; cookware; cleaning aids; bath and skin care for babies, kids and moms; cosmetics; personal care, and fragrances.

When Baby Care Plus+ presented an opportunity to our blogging community to try out their products, I signed up and was blessed to be chosen as part of the project.

Tupperware Brands PH products

I’ve been using a particular brand for my son’s bath and skin care ever since he was a year old. They’re working just fine but I’m curious as to the wonders that Baby Care Plus+ can do for my little boy.

The Tupperware Brands was so generous that they did not only sent us a set of Baby Care Plus+ products but they also shipped Kids Plus+ and Mom Plus+ items as well! The delivery box smelled so good when my son opened it. It was a mix of powdery and fruity scents and I was glad that the scent of the products weren’t too strong – perfect for someone like me who has allergic rhinitis, whose nose gets easily irritated with strong odors. My son was so happy with our package that he wanted to open all of the bottles right away. He even prayed, “God, thank you for the gifts!”

I decided to try out the Kids Plus+ set first since it was specifically made for children his age. I want to find out if these products can truly rid my son’s hair of that sweaty smell that he got from constantly jumping in bed and running around the house with his Dad chasing him. So for his quick night time bath, I enlisted the help of Kids Plus+ Shampoo and Kids Plus+ Bath. Both are in the form of clear, medium thick liquids and has that sweet and fruity scent in them. I used a pea sized amount for my son’s hair and it lathers quickly. I poured that same amount of the Kids Plus+ Bath and observed how far it would go. It bubbled as quickly as the shampoo but I was amazed that I was able to use it for my boy’s entire upper body! I wasn’t scrimping on the body wash. His neck and torso were effectively lathered up. I squeezed another pea sized for his lower limbs. The Kids Plus+ Bath produces a rich lather, that for a second, I thought it would be difficult to rinse. It’s a good thing that I was able to wash it off easily. My boy’s skin felt soft and smooth after his bath. I couldn’t stop smelling him, too! As indicated in its label, the Kids Plus+ Bath may be used for the hair and skin. Perfect for when we are travelling with our little one – I can grab just one bottle and we’re good to go.

Bath time with Kids Plus

After bathing, I gave him the bottles of Kids Plus Cologne and Kids Plus Lotion so he could try them on himself. He was so giddy as he squeezed on the cute penguin-shaped yellow and orange bottle of lotion. He put on a fruity dollop on his arm and asked permission to pour some more. The lotion has the right consistency – not too thick nor too watery. He moved on to his cologne and I told him to put some on his shoulders and chest. His Dad loved that scent and made our little boy more irresistible to cuddles.

The next day, I took out the Baby Care Plus+ Baby Shampoo and Baby Care Plus+ Baby Bath. Being the active boy that he is, his morning was spent jumping on the bed, running around and playing with all of his toys and stuff at home that are not meant for playing. He did all of these at the hottest time of the day. Naturally, he was drenched in sweat and he has what we fondly call “asim-kilig” smell. He was too excited to go to the bathroom when he found out that we have something new for his favorite ritual. Pouring a pea sized amount of the shampoo on my palm and gradually massaging it on my son’s wet hair, the sweet smell of powder filled our bathroom. My son loved that his hair was filled with bubbles. I then took the Baby Bath and got the same amount for my son’s face, neck and back and he smelled like a newborn baby again! I was able to produce a rich lather even with the little amount that I used to wash his entire body. It easily rinses off. I actually liked the scent of Baby Care Plus+ Shampoo and its partner Baby Bath over the Kids Plus+ Shampoo and its Bath counterpart. I seriously loved the Baby Care Plus+ Baby Bath that I used it for my own bath!

I love applying the Baby Care Plus+ Lotion on my son’s skin after his shower. It helps maintain his healthy and smooth skin and makes him smell good for longer hours. And because the Baby Care Plus+ Cologne has that sweet, powdery scent, I dab some on myself when we went to a wedding and I smelled fresh all day long :)

It’s a good thing that Tupperware Brands have the moms in mind when they created a line of skin care products. Being a mom, I feel blessed to be chosen by GOD to take care of one of His greatest creations. I find joy in serving and taking care of my son and I wouldn’t trade it for anything in the world. But, I also feel tired and don’t have much time to pamper myself. That’s why I love using products that will allow me to take care and pamper myself without the need to go out of the house. The Mom Plus Ultra Moisturizing Bar indulges me on my precious bath time as it gently cleanses and deeply moisturize my skin making it softer and smoother. This Moisturizing Bar is actually meant for the body only but I am also using it for my face. We’re in Singapore as I type this. Double duty products save on luggage space! I didn’t develop rashes or or irritations on my face so I just keep on using it. That’s how gentle it is!

Mom Plus+ Soothing Relief Balm

For our family vacation, I also brought with us the Mom Plus+ Soothing Relief Balm. My husband first used it for the insect bite that he had and thankfully, the Soothing Relief Balm was able to make that itch go away. I also used the balm when I experienced minor pain on my lower back and it was able to alleviate the pain.

Mom Plus+ Stretch Mark Cream

I have yet to see the effectivity of the Mom Plus+ Stretch Mark Cream because I was not able to use it on a regular basis. I don’t have stretch marks but unfortunately, cellulites are showing. This Stretch Mark Cream promises to lessen stretch marks and cellulites. I will start using it when we get home and hopefully, it will help me get rid of the unappealing sight on my legs.

So, are we considering the Baby Care Plus+, Kids Plus+, and Mom Plus+ products for our own bath and skin care needs? Of course! These products of Tupperware Brands PH are definitely competitive in terms of efficacy, quality and price. Would you like to try them for you and your family, too? Get in touch with Tupperware Brands PH from their official website and any of their social media accounts and place your order today!

The Aila Comla Show on FB Live


When you’re stuck in traffic or enduring a long commute, let The Aila Comla Show on FB Live entertain you! It’s the first of its kind here in the Philippines and the brainchild of an events engineer and mom of two, Aila Comla. Acee, as she is fondly called by loved ones and friends, took advantage of Facebook’s Live feature and created a show of her own, with a format that’s a bit similar to a radio show. Each morning, after she and her husband have taken the kids to school, Acee would set up her smartphone and go on broadcast as her husband continues to drive on their way to a meeting or while running some errands. And just like that, she became the first female car jockey in the Philippines. 

The Aila Comla Show

Get to know more about The Aila Comla Show and the car jockey herself from our Q & A below.

Arge: When did The Aila Comla Show (ACS) began and what prompted you to set this up?

Acee: Actually, it  all started out of curiosity. I was like in the car and just looking on my FB account and just wandered about the FB live button and when I pressed it I begun talking about anything under the sun. And after that, I was shocked to see that it gone through 1k views already. I received private messages from friends saying that it was a nice show. You did it! Then I asked myself if I am ready for this. As we know, you cannot please everyone, there will be bashers anywhere, so If I continue doing this, I should be ready and be prepared for everything. It’s social media anyway, one of the most influential media,  I must say.

Arge: Aside from live greetings and trivia, what else can we expect in the re-launch of ACS?

Acee: Well, we will be having different segments aside from the “Greetings Galore” and trivia. On the re-launch, it’s kinda new thing because we shall be having a joy-ride guests, phone patch interviews, jamming, “What’s Happening?” (events to hook up), the usual traffic zone and weather updates since we are always on the road. And I want it to be as literally ALIVE show, that viewers can set aside their pressures from work and anything that bothers them. I want them to smile and be happy :)

Arge: What are the challenges that you encounter in running the ACS?

Acee: The challenges… WHEEW! It’s getting a better signal because we are moving. You know why? Sometimes when you’re really on your momentum and viewers are participating and then suddenly the signal becomes weak the viewers get to dropped.. Ugh! It is like you are going to start all over again.

Arge: What motivates you to keep up with ACS?

Acee: You won’t believe it, but it’s because of people like you who believes in this kind of show and the #ailanatics who wait the entire day, texting, pm-ing me asking what time will I start to be on FB live so that they can watch and stay tune. And most especially, the people who send their interest of sponsoring this show like giving me GC’s, discount cards and other freebies for the viewers. I’m very thankful for the following sponsors:

1. FXActionTeamPH
2. Bizpaye Philippines
3. Cygnal Travel and Tours Co.
4. Ascento Parfum
5. AP Simon Dental Clinic
6. Cupcakes, Cookies and Pies
7. JKA’s Catering and Events

Arge: What are your future plans for your show?

Acee: Speaking of future plans, I hope to make it a big show, have an activities like meet and greet with the people who view it, more cameras inside the car :) and invite big personalities as well. And as much as possible, a show not just to make people smile but to inspire and empower them :).

Acee’s career includes working as a radio artist for six years.  She was part of “Barkadahan Radyo-radyo”, a singing contest over radio with a skit drama. The show was then reformatted to a variety show called  ” Awit Tawanan” with Tito Joey Galvez and May Valle (now Ceniza). After a year, she also became part of the “Baranggay Showdown”  with Martin D and Tita Winnie Cordero. It’s a game show where they go to different baranggays via remote live show.

In between radio projects,  Acee had gigs dubbing for local TV shows (Firefly, a Koreanovela,  and Twins of St Claire, a Tagalized cartoon series) and some Pinoy movies up until she was five months pregnant with her firstborn. She also had a brief stints in teleseryes like Hiram and Sarah the Teen Princess. She stopped accepting dubbing projects when she became a mom. She couldn’t stay up late because she wants to be a hands-on mom, personally attending to her kids’ needs.

How We Overcame Stress in Taking Vitamins

This post was made in collaboration with Nutri10 Plus. All opinions stated are mine.

My son used to run away from me whenever it’s time for him to take his vitamins. That was because he disliked the flavor of the brands that he used to take. They were either too sour or a bit bitter for him. He couldn’t wait to drink water right away and he would sometimes ask for candy or Jelly Ace just to overcome the not-so-good taste in his mouth.

Things changed when I started giving him Nutri10 Plus. He loves its ponkan flavor and it tastes just right. I know because I tried it, too 😉 Now, whenever it’s time to take his vitamins, he would gladly walk up to me and open his mouth. He would often savor on the taste as if he is eating candy and he is no longer in a rush to drink water. Nutri10 Plus just made it easier for me to give him the food supplement that he needs and makes it a pleasant experience for his part.

Nutri10 Plus is not just a great-tasting syrup. It’s that one food supplement that is packed with Chrlorella Growth Factor (CGF), Lysine, Taurine, Zinc and with the essential vitamins such as Vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, B6, B12, C, D3 and E. These certainly help me a lot in keeping up with my child’s active lifestyle and aid in his growth and    development.

If Books Were Money, My Son Would Be Rich By Now

Here’s a post that I have drafted on paper a couple of months ago. Finally, I was able to publish it on the blog today!

We started reading to our son when he was still in my womb – from tiny board books given to his Dad as part of their office Kris Kringle to the downloaded nursery rhymes and story books on our iPad. Those tiny board books are still with us today and my son would still read them on his own, that is, pointing to pictures and identifying objects that he knows and mimicking the tone that I use during our read aloud sessions. He would be blabbing on some parts of the story.

His Dad, who commutes to and from work daily, would occasionally drop by BookSale, the bookstore adjacent to the bus terminal and would buy books that he knows our little boy would love. It was a good thing that the shop has a wide selection of books that they sell on bargain. My husband would usually buy three books from that store each month. But one time, he splurged on four books to cultivate our son’s growing love for reading and it was such a blessing that all of them were from our little one’s favorite series namely Curious George and Dr. Seuss.

Book Haul

When we began having weekly mother-and-son dates at the neighborhood mall, a trip to National Bookstore and BookSale is a must for my child. We would linger close to an hour at his favorite Children’s Books section as he would scan the pages of the books that piqued his interest. He loves books that involved animals and keeps going back to read them. Whenever I would notice that he likes a particular book, I would offer to buy it for him so we could enjoy it at home. He would decline most of the time. I’m so blessed to have a son who gets contented with browsing and window shopping :) At times when we would chance upon a book that he really liked or finally found an elusive title, I would purchase it right away and take him to Country Style where we would read our recent find while having doughnuts and coffee (for me).

At home on most mornings, he prefers having milk in bed and asks me to read a couple of books to him before we go downstairs for his breakfast. Recently, I adapted a fill-in-the-blanks strategy in where I would either let him finish a sentence or identify an object in the story. This makes our sessions more interactive and very lively. Doing this also encouraged him to read books on his own, even though he can’t read everything written in the pages yet. He would read before bedtime while waiting for Mommy and Daddy to finish the chores downstairs. When we’re all settled in bed, he would request that we read at least three books to him, which includes his activity books and his favorite dinosaur books, before finally going to sleep. He would also read Ate and Kuya’s old books at Granny’s after playing with the stuff inside their toy box. He would gladly peruse on his new book while we are waiting for our turn at the grocery’s check out counter, to pass the time at the doctor’s clinic and extended his patience as he waited for his parents’ passports to be renewed.

I’ve been praying that my son will carry on with the habit of reading books as he grows up and have children and grandchildren of his own and ultimately, pass on the habit to them. There’s so much that we can learn from reading. My husband and I have been discovering a lot from the books that we buy for our son. I never imagined that I could memorize a ton of dinosaur names just because my boy is so fascinated in them!

I have decluttered a few weeks ago and finally let go of my boy’s first batch of books. We have passed them on to his younger cousins hoping that they will also get hooked on reading. We still have plenty in the bookcase upstairs and in the shelf downstairs. We will be getting new ones, anyway. If books were money, my son would be rich by now.
