Moms find the perfect printer for the family in the latest Canon PIXMA printer series

Cooking, painting, and scrapbook-making are just few of the many activities moms let their kids do to further their holistic development. It can be said that kids nowadays are busier and moms play a more challenging role to be highly creative, making every experience a learning platform for their kids. With the right technology, now, moms (and anyone in the family who has a creative streak!) are more empowered than ever, especially with the right printer that helps foster creativity and enhanced learning for the family – the Canon PIXMA E Series printers.

“Technology plays a vital role in the development of children. As a company that aims to bring delight to everyone, we make sure that our products are part of every delightful moment,” shares Benny Yu, Consumer Group Director of Canon Marketing Philippines, Inc. “Family moments are delightful moments worth having memories of. Through the newly-launched series of Canon PIXMA E printers, we wish to make these moments count – from using our printers to produce work that will help enhance the creativity and learning of kids, to documenting these moments via photos.”  Through the Canon PIXMA E series printers, print quality is never compromised by its cost efficiency – making unending delightful moments happen.

There are many ways by which the Canon PIXMA E Series printers can help every family moment memorable: The Canon PIXMA E410 is perfect for moms who help put together her children’s numerous drafts of artworks, sketches and projects with its ability to print up to 400 black and white documents, and 180 colored pages. The design savvy student will enjoy the PIXMA E470’s built-in Wi-Fi features that can help print from anywhere to meet that deadline when paired with the Google Cloud Print*1 service. Teens in the family can immortalize their best photos on Facebook through the PIXMA MG3070s with its PIXMA Cloud Link application for remote printing of Facebook albums and online contents with mobile devices. While the compact PIXMA E480 model is best suited for aspiring entrepreneurs in the family with its on-the-go faxing and scanning features.

Watch out for the upcoming Canon #PIXMom series of events in the malls nearest you in July. Families can visit Canon’s interactive booths: a back-to-school booth where kids can select icons of what they want to be when they grow up; a kitchen booth where guests can design their cupcakes; the creatives in the family can print their own coloring sheets and scrapbook in the arts and crafts booth; plus dads and kids can test the speed of taking sharp photos using select Canon cameras at the basketball booth.

Guests are assured that every Canon purchase they make counts. “We also prioritize rewarding and giving importance to our avid Canon customers. By simply downloading the Canon Red App available in Apple Store and Google Play, exciting freebies and rewards from over 150 partner merchants awaits our customers when they earn points,” shares Canon Philippines Marketing Manager Tin Dacanay. Registered users can enjoy discounts, prioritized service and product loans, free workshops, camera cleaning, extended warranty up to two years, special after sales services, plus up to Php10,000 worth of credits with every purchase of participating Canon products.

#GerifiedPH: Millennial Moms Ph’s #MomTribe Meet-Up for First-Time Moms

It takes a village to raise a child.

15626219_1503985906281431_3404314513249935418_o

The quote above was an old African proverb originated in Igbo and Yoruba now commonly known as Nigeria; it depicts the importance of an entire community in its active role in contributing to the rearing of one’s child.

Photo on the left: #Dabibot munching on a peeled carrot. Instead of eating chips and deep fries, toddlers can munch on finger food like carrots, cucumbers and parsley. Just make sure that the toddler is always under an adult supervision.

One of my determined goals when I was a first time parent, was to breastfed my child exclusively for the first six months of his life and then, let him self-wean. It was a success. That is what I’m doing now for my second child. But my first-time mom journey wasn’t all wet kisses and tight hugs, and I can’t tell it is now that I’m a mom of two little gentlemen. I still have a lot to learn and I’m opening my mind to it; aside from wet kisses and tight hugs, I’m so ready for that still-hot poop and sour pukes, especially now that I got a millennial tribe behind my back.

Millennial Moms are mothers who were born between 1978 and 1994.

***

The quote above was what came into my mind the moment I learned about this offline meet up – a transition into the modern era that Millennial Moms Philippines summed up to be hashtag #MomTribe.

Millennial Moms Ph

Millennial Moms Ph provides an offline avenue for moms to SHARE, INSPIRE and CONNECT with other moms in a workshop or seminar type of events  where they advocate to help and teach millennials parents to be good in keeping their homes and family in a good state – just like how women of tribes do to cultivate and nourish the village. Hence, moms would love to work inside the home.

  • To be good homemakers
  • To survive when maids are not around
  • To train and guide helpers in the household

#MomTribe

The #MomTribe Meet Up event held last June 24 was very laid back. Breastfeeding moms are everywhere. Crying babies and laughing running toddlers was a norm and no one judged anyone.

19396684_1441211965922059_4998812595384145849_n.jpgOn our way to the event, Dabibot fell asleep after breastfeeding.

Everyone was welcomed and understood. I feel like I belong… I didn’t bring my toddlers with me because the hubby is gracious enough to make pasyal the kids in the mall while I’m in the event but I like how moms with crying babies for the first time will not look others in the eyes apologetically – I wished I brought Dabibot.

I love how everyone was whispering that the baby’s is cute, so chubby. Humbly excusing and proudly excused were the exchanges of the conversation – babywearing, using strollers, breastfeeding, bottle-fed, mix feeding, using disposable diapers, cloth diaper users. Just a smile and a nod, no mommy shaming.

Everyone was dog-eyed seeing the babies cue or smile. And everyone gasp when a baby smacked her face on the table.

Finally, an avenue for moms.

The event was hosted by millennial mom behind the Millennial Moms Ph, Ms. Dette Zulueta. She introduced us to the Mom Tribe Community, its advocacy and its sponsors that made the event possible.

Then we were grouped into four. The Super Moms, the Hot Mommas, the Anata Hearts and the Wonder WoMoms (our group). We introduced ourselves to each other and talked about our backgrounds.

In our group, one’s a nurse, two are full-time moms, two are mom-prenuers and one corporate mom. Like a good mix, we learned and picked something from the other. It was really a refreshing intimate conversation for me after years of only talking to the drooling infants – I’m a work at home mom, afterall.

I didn’t get the chance to get a decent photo, the lactating treats from SugarSensationsPh went down the throat in less than a minute. I saved the lolly for later.

Aside from the group activities, Asian Parenting held a human bingo.

19424160_1441200379256551_2137662156873378762_n.jpg

One of the things I learned the hard way is that when you are young, you are idealistic, but as you age, you should embrace the reality as well. One of the things I do to fight against the pressure of idealism is by practicing Stoicism – the art of not giving a care to people and circumstances that doesn’t help or improve you.

I never had a night life. Other moms in the group also has a limited social life after having the baby – and like a said earlier, everyone was refreshed on finally talking to another adult after a year of baby talking. Personally, one of the things I can’t do now is to travel alone. I don’t have anyone to leave the kids with and I’m a breastfeeding momma who hates pumping – add that to the equation and you’ll end up knowing I breastfeed even during my site inspection visits.

Usually, just an encouragement and affirmation that it’s okay, everything will fall into place is all I need to keep on striving and moving forward.

How does Marian Rivera make Garantisadong Ginisarap dishes?

MARIAN RIVERAMarian Rivera-Dantes is used to playing different characters: Primetime Queen, recording artist, brand ambassador, style icon, and philanthropist. But her favorite roles by far have been those behind the camera: as wife to Dingdong and mom to Baby Zia.
As a modern homemaker, who manages her time between work and
family, Marian has found comfort in cooking as one of the best ways to make her family feel loved and to improve her culinary skills. On her social media pages, the Kapuso actress has posted some of her own culinary creations that range from baby food for little Zia, stews, soups, and veggies. And on days when Marian is short on time, stir-fry dishes have become her go-to choices for easy, yummy meals.
Topping her stir-fry list are Chopsuey and Fried Rice made with AJI-GINISA®
Flavor Seasoning Mix, as seen in the seasoning’s two new TVCs which began airing last June 4, 2017. In both versions, Marian dances and sings to the tune of her hit song, “Sabay-sabay Tayo,’ while she adds AJI-GINISA® to each dish to make them more delicious and “Garantisadong Ginisarap.”
Like Marian, you can also whip up “Garantisadong Ginisarap” dishes – even non-vegetable ones – by adding a touch of AJI-GINISA® to your favorite stir-fry recipes.

Solane – A day with Dad

Solane_A day with dad_photo.jpgSolane – A Day with Dad

He is a provider, a hero, and a friend all wrapped into one—he is dad. And there’s no better time to show our dads how much we appreciate them for being the pillar of the family than on a day specially dedicated to all the fathers out there.

Solane, the country’s leading LPG solutions provider, encourages us to express our love to our dads with the Dapat Lang advocacy campaign, where it emphasizes the importance of doing the right thing for the family, for others, and society as a whole.

Like everyone else, our dad also long for expressions of love, and we can do so through these simple deeds:

Plan an adventure-filled day outdoors. Make Father’s Day more interesting and bond with the family by planning an adventure-filled day with dad. Take a short hike, fly a kite, go fishing, take a road trip, set-up a picnic at the park, or have an outdoor barbecue. Without a doubt, it will be a very memorable celebration for all.

Cook his favorite food. Occasions such as Father’s Day mean malls will be jam-packed, and restaurants will have long waiting queues. Instead of spending the day at the mall, opt to celebrate at home by arranging a nice dining table set-up and cooking his favorite dishes. Adding your own touch through the dishes is another way of making this day even more special.

Have a game night. Have fun with games like charades or board games. As this day falls on a Sunday, it is the perfect opportunity to relax and spend time with loved ones.

Make a handmade gift. Who says you need to spend a lot of money to celebrate Father’s Day? A simple handmade greeting card, letter, or even putting together basic tools that he can use to repair things at home will definitely mean the world to dad.

These tips may be simple but they’re surefire ways to make dad feel special on Father’s Day. Dapat lang!

With its turnover set in the fourth quarter of this year, Botanika exudes a distinct south Manila village charm. This low-density development, with generous living spaces and large balconies, ensures the comfort, privacy and security of its residents.
