One of the perks of being a mommy blogger is you will able to bring your family in the events. I’m so thankful that the PR Managers I’m talking with is very friendly and family-oriented, that’s why they even invite my family to come with me.

So last November 20, together with #TeamVillareal we witnessed the Alaska Ultimate Mission Camp 2016 held at SMX Convention Center. We had our lunch at Max first courtesy of the PR Manager where she handed us the media kit which includes our ID. Right after our lunch, we were headed at the venue and got surprised when we saw huge crowd of people trying to register in the registration area. Good thing, there is a separate line for the media bloggers.

As we enter the venue, we were amazed on how organized it was and how generous the sponsors. Kids were given a white shirt to wear during the event and activity card for them to finish it all before getting the loothbag.

Since ChingChing is below 3 feet, she is not allowed to join in the mission camp. Masyado paring bata kaya more on the toddlers games lang muna sya. I’m so happy to see that she’s participating in every booth we passed through.

Go ChingChing!

Two is better than one. :)
Good Job, Rhian!

 There are food samplings and Alaska milk drinks inside the venue which are free of charge. Yes! Alaska is so generous in giving away milk drinks. We got home with these goodies which I’m happy to share it with my kid’s playmates.

with fellow Mommy Bloggers

I’m looking forward for next Alaska Ultimate Mission Camp in 2017 and hopefully ChingChing can now join the challenge on her own.

Thank you Nestle and Alaska Milk Corporation for inviting me and my family in this big event. Keep up the good work!

I don’t know if this feeling is cause by the come back of my PCOS but I really feel so emotional these past few days. I recently found out that I have PCOS again (Yes! Bumalik ang dating nawala!) when I undergo TranV last May. I used to visit my OB Gyne because my monthly period became irregular again and my doctor found out that I have PCOS on both side of my ovaries and the fact na I have retroverted uterus again. #Saklap

Anyway, to make the long story short I got emotional whenever I look at my kids. They are growing up fast, I can’t believe that Rhian will turn 3 next month and Rhaine is now 1 year and 3 months already. Asan na ang mga baby na hinehele ko noon? Yung mga baby na halos karga ko lang lagi? Yung mga baby na naka unli latch sa akin at ayaw bumitaw sa dede ko? Hayz. This is reality, time really flies so fast!

It’s just like yesterday when I gave birth to them and now look at these cutie patoties, ang sasayang mga bata. Sometimes when I have a conversation with our panganay, kala mo kumakausap na ko ng matanda eh. Ganon na ba talaga ang mga toddlers today? I’m not perfect person but I must have done something right to deserve them in my life. We are facing difficulties in life, marriage and financial aspect but by looking at them give us strength na kaya namin to at kakayanin for them.

I feel so guilty whenever I got home late and hindi ko na sila naaabutang gising, then aalis pa ko ng bahay for work ng tulog pa sila. My kids need me, my full attention, my love and everything. While writing this post, I got teary eyed because last night I scolded my kids because I’m so tired, tao lang rin naman ako at napapagod rin. My kids are crying non-stop and it’s already late in the evening, honestly, naubos ang pacensya ko kaya napalo ko yung bunso not knowing that they only need me, they want me to be on their side before going to sleep, that they want me to sing a lullaby song and comfort them but what I did is definitely wrong and not acceptable and I’m so sorry for that as they don’t deserve that kind of treatment especially from me.

I cannot promise that I will not do it again in the future; instead I vowed to be more patient and be reminded that they are the greatest gifts that God gave to me. Rhian and Rhaine are my life and my everything. Again, I’m not perfect but I can say that I’m the best mom for my children.

Last November 12, I was invited to attend the Nido Mommy Carnival, thanksgiving and year-end party held at Century City Mall. This is the first time that I attended an event na 2 lang kami ni ChingChing and I must say na nakakapagod pala pag walang kasama, although I enjoy the moment that we were together all by ourselves. Kung baga parang it’s #MommyandChingChingsDayOut.

My husband dropped us at the mall then he left to attend our bunso. Alam nyo nap ag weekend, pahinga ng mga nag-aalaga sa mga bata. Anyway, we arrived at the venue on time and roamed around the area to check what they prepared for the media and the kids. So let me photo blog it for you.

Giveaways for the Mommies/Parents
Mommy Rackell and ChingChing
We were given a passport card for us to complete it. Here are some of the activities you need to finish, don’t worry even if you didn’t win in the game, they will still give you consolation prize.

I made a pledge at the pledge board while my daughter is so busy in coloring activities together with her new found friends, Chelsea and Ysa. (Note: ChingChing is not in the mood when we arrived at the event, sleepy kasi sya kaya ganyan ang mga ngiti nya, pilit. But when she wake up from nap, ang taas naman bigla ng energy na halos ayaw tumigil sa kakasayaw. Na LSS sa new commercial song ng Nido. Hehe.)

In this event, NIDO® 3+ introduces the new and improved NIDO® PROTECTUS® 3+, packed with higher levels of essential nutrients made especially for children in their crucial growing-up years. Rhian is a NIDO drinker since she turns 1 and I must say na nagustuhan nya talaga ang Nido, can you imagine she drinks 35 ounces of milk per day. Wow!

We were so glad to meet Sarah Lahbati and Zion in this event. She also explain to the guests that we should always “Check the label” of the products that we purchase and make sure that it contains nutrients like DHA, PREBIO 3, Iron, Zinc and other essential vitamins and minerals that help support immunity, growth and development of our kids.

With just one look, moms can easily identify and learn about the unique combination of nutrients found in NIDO® PROTECTUS® 3+, which contains DHA, PREBIO® 3, Iron, Zinc, and other essential vitamins and minerals that help support his immunity, growth, and development. It also comes with Lactobacillus PROTECTUS®, now with Lactobacillus rhamnosus, a different strain of probiotics that helps support digestive defenses.
