Fisher Price Event for Expectant Moms: Great Mom in the Making!

Welcome to Motherhood Life-changing. Challenging. Emotional. Surprising. Rewarding. So many words to describe motherhood, all of them true. Yes, it can be crazy. And yes, it won’t be sunshine and rainbows every day. But for every trying day there will be many more joyous days. Like when your baby finally calls you “mama”. Or the time they smoosh you in a bear hug out of the blue. At those times, you remember why you’re a parent. Soon, your little newborn will become a toddler and before you know it, they’ll start school. Along the way, they’ll need your help to grow into person they’re meant to be.19956621_10156397034147995_7455801987711996022_o.jpg

Anne Curtis: Fearless in saying ‘Yes’

AnneCurtis.jpg

“I never fear or regret saying ‘yes,’ especially to situations and things that can lead me to great, unforgettable experiences,” quipped Anne Curtis, one of the Philippines’ most sought-after entertainment personalities.

With such an open attitude towards life, it’s easy to see why Anne has managed to go from a balikbayan on a holiday to a prominent figure in the showbiz industry for the last twenty years.

“And I have to add that my showbiz career started right in Jollibee Boni, when I was approached by a talent scout,” the actress said. “Jollibee really reminds me of that fateful ‘Yes’ that I said twenty years ago, and look where that brought me!”

Earlier this year, Anne returned to where her impressive career began, but with a sweeter twist as the endorser of Jollibee’s best-tasting and best-selling Burger Steak. The actress calls her Jollibee endorsement as a “homecoming,” and is truly in love with her favorite 100% beefy-linamnam and saucy-sarap rice meal.

‘Best with rice’

Despite her Australian heritage, Anne remains truly Pinay at heart—especially in her favorite comfort foods. She loves a good ulam with white rice, just like millions of Filipinos who enjoy this simple yet filling combination every day.

“I know that there are some who would think that a burger patty doesn’t go well with rice, but Jollibee Burger Steak’s 100% beef patty with its flavorful mushroom sauce really is best paired with a steaming cup of rice,” said Anne.

In her latest TV commercial for Jollibee Burger Steak that began airing last July 9, Anne gives us a couple of reasons to say ‘Yes na Yes’ to this flavor-packed combination.

“The Jollibee Burger Steak is indeed the best-tasting rice meal you’ll have for this really great, affordable price,” shared the actress. “Best-tasting na ang 100% beefy-linamnam pattysaucy-sarap pa ang mushroom gravy, bagay na bagay pa with rice!”

Haven’t tried the Jollibee Burger Steak yet? Take it from true-blue Burger Steak lovers like Anne Curtis and say “Yes na Yes” to the unforgettably delicious dining experience offered by the Jollibee Burger Steak Rice Meal, available for dine-in, take-out, delivery, and drive-thru transactions, starting at P50.00*.

#GerifiedPH: Canon Pix Mommy Weekend x Pixma E Series Launch

First day of school was a success, no separate-anxiety symptoms, no cranky I-want-my-mommy attitude. Crying hormone is nowhere in sight, just a little hyper-activity running around, wiggling in place and voice in high pitch – what a promising first school year! Then I opened his assignment notebook. First sentence in the first page of it- a homework. A simple whole image of Kulayot in paper. Wow! I never thought kindergarten school would punch parents like this on first day. Punch is the term, but its not that violent, just a tad of hyperventilation and panic. Is it due tomorrow or the next Monday?

Apparently, it was due next week. That was a relief. I read the notebook halfway from falling asleep and preparing for tomorrow’s work.

The thing is, school today requires current technology which includes  a laptop/desktop, a printer and an internet connection.

Canon Pixma E Series

Canon introduced their latest addition in their line up for Ink Efficient All-In-One printers—the PIXMA Ink Efficient E410 and E470. These are the latest printers equipped with low-cost, high yield ink cartridges to ensure affordable cost of operation.

Growing Market of Singapore Math Pushes S.A.M.’s Expansion in RP

19756178_10210326469013410_550436241_n.jpg

The thrust to make kids learn and love math is becoming an impassioned cause for the people behind Seriously Addictive Math (S.A.M.) – the program that is making a difference in many parts of the world including the Philippines.

Its beginnings traced back in 2010, S.A.M. is a multi-awarded international Singapore math enrichment program that has grown to more than 100 facilities spanning 16 countries, including the USA, Canada, Australia, Brunei, Malaysia and Singapore. This is the only Singapore Maths Enrichment program that originated from Singapore, and taught in Singapore.

The company was founded by two individuals, Samuel Chia and Lau Chin Loong, who are passionate about child education and have the intention of bringing the best and most successful mathematics curriculum to children around the world.
In the Philippines, there are already 16 S.A.M. centers in operation, traversing various regions.

After the first branch was opened in San Juan, succeeding centers were opened in Marikina, Enderun College at Bonifacio Global City and West Avenue QC. SAM’s learning facilities can also be found in Angeles City, Pampanga; Binangonan, Rizal; Tanauan, Lipa and Rosario in Batangas; Cebu, Cagayan de Oro, and Davao.

With a growing number of students wanting to enroll their kids in SAM, four more centers are set to open soon: White Plains, Lower Bicutan, Imus in Cavite and Zamboanga.

According to Hsien Naidu, Founder of Enrich Asia Pte Ltd, the company which brought SAM to the Philippines, more and more Filipino parents have started appreciating Singapore Math for the positive effect it has had on their children.

One of the most distinct advantages of SAM is its small class ratio, and the belief in not spoon feeding children the methods and answers. It does not teach through rote learning and memorization but rather focuses on conceptually understanding using

individualize teaching and concrete examples. S.A.M. inculcates independent learning, diligence and discipline as it inoculates conceptual understanding and critical thinking. S.A.M’s principles also aid a child in resolving non-routinary, open-ended and real-life situations and problems.

As kids have started to embrace math because of S.A.M., parents have also started to realize the benefits of S.A.M. on their children. Erni Hayati, whose child is enrolled in S.A.M’s center in Marikina, remarked: “My son used to hate math because his teacher taught the subject so fast that he could barely understand. But just after attending a few sessions at S.A.M., he started to like it more and has now even shown genuine interest in math.”

With more and more people believing in how S.A.M. works, Hsien believes the negative stigma of math will shift on a more positive note and will equip them better as they go thru life’s various challenges.
