#GerifiedPH: Make the Right Organic Choice with Promil Organic

I spilled the milk but just like how sometimes our wrongs were the reasons why we end up being successful, and how we finally realize that those wrongs were actually the road to our success, spilling the milk and then finally ending up with this rustic flatlay, I guess I could say that I succeeded.


It’s no surprise, humans aren’t perfect after all and hence mistakes are always a given, but that shouldn’t hinder us in persevering in doing what is good and what is right, and that includes making the right organic choice when it comes to our kid’s milk, too!

Going organic may have multiple benefits that help us lead more healthy lives. Taking the more natural approach or ‘going green’ has even been proven to help conserve the environment and improve the lives of farmers. Indeed, the organic lifestyle is steadily increasing in popularity among more and more Filipinos. With the recent launch of an organic milk brand in the market, Filipino moms now have the option to provide their children with better nutrition that will help develop their minds and bodies.


Proud moms Andi Manzano, Cat Ledesma, and Hindy Weber Tantoco hosted the event, and shared insights about being a mom and tips on parenting. Sharing their own inspiring stories about motherhood to encourage parents to try an organic lifestyle. “We are proud to be joined by these women who pursue a healthy lifestyle,” says Patricia Cuna, Brand Manager for Promil® Organic. “They are dedicated mothers who only want the best for their children. We hope that their support could help us to inspire more parents to try a healthier lifestyle for their family, starting with Promil® Organic.”

Wyeth Nutrition debuts the new Promil® Organic in a fun-filled and informative launch at Palazzo Verde in Las Pinas, gathering moms, trade partners and subject-matter experts. The latest innovation from the leading nutrition firm is made from the best of nature and expertly designed to nurture children’s gifts.
“Promil, moms’ trusted partner for the past 30 years, recognizes the growing needs of moms to provide a healthier foundation for their child through the organic lifestyle. We developed Promil® Organic to address the growing demand for organic products. It is made from 100% organic dairy milk from certified organic European farms,” says Theresa Chong, Marketing Director, Wyeth Philippines Inc.
Promil® Organic contains docosahexaeonic and arachidonic acid (DHA & AA) and is also a source of zinc and selenium to support brain and body development. It is the only organic formula milk expertly designed with these key nutrients. According to surveys, the global organic food and beverage market is expected to reach USD 211.44 billion by 2020. More people are realizing the benefits of organic consumption and that they can still meet their daily dietary needs.

Aside from the Photo Curating Class with Ms. Chi-Chi Tullao, we also had the opportunity to spend the afternoon with Sir Robert Alejandrino of Papemelroti in a short Nature-Inspired Art Class! Check out my final piece:


Such a laid back afternoon full of organic fun and learnings! Thank you Wyeth Philippines for the wonderful experience!

#GerifiedPH: Toni Gonzaga and Baby Seve #ChoosePampers for Less Lawlaw Go Galaw Mornings

There are some things you just can’t learn by reading a book. When it comes to having a baby, you won’t really know what to expect until you’re actually deep into the trenches of motherhood.
Last January 27, at the Grand Baby Fair, Toni Gonzaga held a short but very sweet segment on stage with her baby, Seve.

Toni and Seve Pampers Demo.jpg

While some days tend to get pretty overwhelming, it’s important for moms to know that they are not alone. Just like how award winning, multi talented artist and first-time mommy, Toni Gonzaga shared that when she and husband Paul Soriano found out they were expecting their first baby, they were both extremely overwhelmed. “We were very excited but also a bit worried coming into parenthood for the first time. Like many first-time moms, I am constantly questioning if my choices are meeting all of his needs.” she shares.

More of Baby Seve’s photos here.

Since babies are not able to say what they want in their earlier stages, moms are most concerned about providing only the best choices for their kids.  For Toni, it was particularly important to be more careful and discerning when it comes to choosing the right diaper. “Diapers are a baby’s first clothes, and something they wear throughout the whole day. I want Seve to be as comfortable as possible—which is why choosing the right diaper was so important to me. In fact, I can honestly say that choosing the right diaper was one of the best things I did for him. At first, I thought all diapers were the same but now that I’ve seen Pampers’ technology, I’m so glad I made the right choice!”

The most common complaint moms have when it comes to this everyday baby essential is its tendency to sag. Sagging is caused by wetness accumulating in just one spot of the diaper. For most moms, a lawlaw diaper means parents have to worry about wetness and leaks, as well as change the diaper more often. More importantly, a lawlaw diaper also means that babies’ movement is restrained and can be uncomfortable. And freedom of movement is critical in the development of gross motor skills like crawling and walking.

Choosing Pampers, Toni learned that not all diapers are built equal. The new Pampers Baby Dry, with its magic gel channels, is able to absorb wetness evenly and distribute it throughout the whole diaper. This technology still offers Pampers overnight dryness but makes the diaper thinner and drier, putting an end to lawlaw – so babies are ready to go galaw as soon as they wake up in the morning!

Pampers Philippines has announced that they will be releasing this new and improved Baby Dry in the coming months. Akhil Meshram, Pampers Philippines Brand Manager says “At Pampers, we aim to bring the best possible products to you and your baby. We will be upgrading our products to solve mom’s biggest diaper frustration – lawlaw. Our diapers will be even drier and faster absorbing, providing better value for our moms. This also means a better fit and more freedom of movement for babies. We are excited to be working with Toni Gonzaga because, like us, she believes that babies deserve the best care available.”

Though the choices for your babies can become overwhelming, overcoming this challenge starts by knowing that as a mom, you have options. You don’t have to do one thing just because everyone says so. “The best advise I got came from my mother,” Toni adds. “She said that every baby is different. Me and my baby will have a system of our own,” Toni explains. “It’s very important that moms do their own research! I was lucky that for one of the most important things for Seve, his diapers, I got it right!”

#GerifiedPH: Glamcon MNL 2018

Real beauty is skin deep but it won’t hurt to have a reliable matte lipstick that won’t bleed nor transfer especially when you’re having a hard time. At least, one thing’s going right on you, and that’s knowing that your puckers are on-fleek!

The first ever Glam Convention was held at the SMX Convention Center in SM Aura, Taguig last January 21, 2018, and yours truly, albeit a makeup noob, didn’t let this pass.

For a day, I become a Diva, and to be a Diva in its true context, what I did first was to line up for the makeover.



Check out my photos with Raiza Contawi, the Plump Pinays and more of the event, here.

The event also held a free hair makeover, and while girls with magic hands transform girls to divas, and queens and glamderellas, the Glam Gala talks were spontaneously held at the main stage. I caught Raiza Contawi teaching the basics of the color wheel and how specific makeup colors could complement your entire outfit and more.

For the queens and divas of the day, the Glam School showcased different makeup style for different bodies! Makeup Plus with Paint Box Artistry, Boss Lady and Valentine Vixen are some of the highlights of this one day make up classroom!

I enjoyed playing at the iWhite booth, and most of all, I love my lashes! I haven’t used a falsie for quite sometime now, and it surely makes you feel more confident with those lashes waving hi!

Thank you so much to my talented makeup artist, Ms. Shiela for revealing the diva in this momma!


#gerilenmbf: Cars for Toddlers

Although this post is sponsored, all opinions are mine.


Well, it’s not actually about cars for toddlers, this post is all about how to make your car more toddler-friendly!

dabibot cars.jpg

Cars, as long as its machine is working, will run, but when you got toddlers in tow, some car accessories are more like a necessity and not a luxury, and with a plethora of the latest car accessory options, below are the must-have that’ll make the road trip easier for the parents and enjoyable for the toddlers.

Floor and Dicky Mat. – Eating can keep the toddler occupied during traffic and that means crumbs and spills that could rust the car’s floor. Good thing there’s floor mats – originally designed to protect a vehicle’s floor from dirt, wear, and corrosion; it can keep the car floor’s life longer while making it look clean. It’s easily placed and removed for cleaning and replacement. Dicky Mats on the other hand offers unique solution for keeping the car trunk clean. You can personalized the dicky mat according to your car boot size, you can fit the edges so that dirt won’t pass through.

Seat Covers. – If you have floor mats, it will only follow that you have seat covers as well. Leathers are a good choice especially when sticky juices and sauces spill in between those clumsy tiny fingers as it could be cleaned with just a few swipes of wet wipes and a spray of alcohol.

Sun Film and Window Shade. – Both of these will keep the cars temperature on steady while protecting the car’s interiors and the occupants including the toddlers from the extreme climatic conditions. You can pick colorful shades or cartoon characters for kids’ attention, or not.

Remote-locking security system. – Aside from added security, remote-locking security system can give you convenience when your hands are full of toddler.

Child Safety Lock. – This small switch is typically engage to prevent unauthorized exit from the vehicle. It’s a simple way to keep the toddlers safe and secure despite their constant fidgeting on the door.

Window Lock. – If they can’t opened the door, they’ll make way on the window. The window lock will keep the children on the back seat safe as when the lock is active, only the driver can control all the vehicle’s windows.

EZ Baby Saver. –  Children are dying each year from being left in hot cars, and Andrew Pelham’s Rubber Band invention, the EZ Baby Saver is actually an effective way to save toddlers in hot cars.

Child Seat. –  When properly installed and used,  child safety seat is effective in protecting children during vehicular collisions.


These are the basic car accessories that parents should consider adding to make the vehicle safe and toddler-friendly! What other car accessories do you think parents should add? Comment on the section box below.

#GerifiedPH: Morissette is Made

This pretty girl has been aired on national television for quite sometime. From TV5’s Variety Shows like Sunday Funday, Funtastik and Hey It’s Saberdey, and sitcoms like Pidol’s Wonderland, she is now regularly seen on ABS-CBN’s Top Sunday Variety Show, ASAP19. Morissette, whose name is Johanne Morissette Amon in real life is now ready to show the world more of what she’s made of.


One of the things I learned about Morissette, is that she recently got herself not one, not two, but seven awards. Those of which recognized her as an elite member of Wish family on YouTube with several bronze trophies for 10 million views, silver trophies for 25 million views and gold for hitting more than 50 million views! Now that’s a lot, and more than recognition should be given to this powerful girl’s voice, she really needs to have a concert!

The concert, dubbed as “Morissette is Made” is “really made for her”, BMPI CEO/President, Mr. Daniel Razon shared. “We believe that she is good. She’s talented and that she can bring Filipino pride elsewhere in the world. We also believe that Wish 107.5 contributed also to why she became who she is now in the Musical Arena,” he added.

The singer also expresses her excitement for the upcoming concert: “I’m very excited for this concert because other than it’s going to be a whole new experience working with a differenft team, the Big Dome is THE Big Dome… The greatest of Filipino and international artists have all performed there, and for me to be able to hold my next solo concert there is just surreal,” according to Morissette.

“We want to give them the very best of what we can offer, from the stage to the music to the guests! But most of all, I want this concert to be an EXPERIENCE for everybody, that beyond all the visuals and sounds, by the end of the concert, they’ll be able to feel something.” she added. Aside from excitement, Morissette is very thankful for all the blessings and support that she has been receiving. “I primarily want to thank the whole Wish 107.5 family for trusting me to be the very first artist whom they will produce a major concert of… just those times I got to sing on the famous ‘WishBus’ have definitely become one of the highlights of my journey/career,” she said. “And also, endless thanks to everyone who’s been there for me-those who are with me on this journey.


MADE is directed by Paolo Valenciano with Adonis Tabanda as the musical director. According to Paolo, “Morissette is one of those artists that just makes me so comfortable to go to work because I know she will deliver. We wat to immerse her fans into the ultimate Morissette experience and we’re all very excited!”

The Dome was expected to be filled by “Mowieatics” here and around the globe together with the support of her friends in the music industry. David Cosico came up with the Morissette is Made, and for Morissette being MADE is defined as a person who has been thru so much in her life and came to that moment of truth.

Regarding her vocal squeak, she said that she accidentally stumbled upon this while finding her own image, to add spice to the vocals and was influenced her favorite foreign singers like Mariah Carey, Jessy J., and Demi Lovato.

I also had the chance to asked her some of my curiosity and she generously answered. Here’s a rough wrap up of what had transcribed.

Aside from singing, what other talent do we need to know about you?
Morissette liked to dance as well, she also detailed to us how she used to have a sing-dance performances with the A-Team.

Your voice was so powerful; are you open to theatrical performances?
I was surprised to learn that she already did the theatrics acts with camp rock and Chuva Choo Choo by Veni Saturno.

You mentioned you want to become a director someday; what kind of performances you like to direct?
It’s a no-brainer, she as a singer would also like to direct music concerts, too.

When asked if she also play instruments, Morissette happily shared that she likes playing the guitar and she has fingers made for the piano.

Aside from being a singer, are you open on becoming an actress? What genre?
She already had an experience in acting with Director Joyce Bernal and if she’ll pursue her acting career, she would like to be included on a science-fiction, action-adventure films.

morissetteismade gerifiedph.jpgYours truly with Morissette at the #MorissetteisMade Press Launch, more photos of the event here.

Morissette is actually celebrating her 7 years in the showbiz industry and would like to perform with Gary Valenciano, Mr. Pure Energy on a sing-dance concert and birit sessions with Ms. Regine Velasquez and Sarah Geronimo aside from other international artists.

What keeps this girl hitting the high notes was her number one supporter group and avid fans, her family. Finally, when asked if she is nervous on filling up the coliseum, she effortlessly winged it by saying, “We are hoping that Smart Araneta Coliseum will be filled, but what’s for sure, is that the audience will have a great time!”

Strawberry and Chocolate are two of the classic flavors of a sundae and with this in mind, Jollibee’s first sundae innovation this 2018 is the fusion of these two classic flavors!

The all-new Strawberry Choco Sundae takes Jollibee’s classic vanilla soft-serve to a whole new level by topping it with a layer of indulgent chocolate fudge and delectable strawberry syrup. To finish it off, Jollibee even added a crunchy chocolate coating and chunks of chewy brownies for contrasting textures. The result is a well-rounded dessert treat that delivers a full-bodied, indulgent experience with every scoop.
