The Art of Staycation

Good Housekeeping magazines have always been a staple in our home, it has been my official go-to and mommy-friendly resource for anything and everything about keeping my mommy duties in check. Good Housekeeping Philippines, the number one family and home magazine in the Philippines, collaborates with Serin East, Avida’s first residential retreat in Tagaytay, to vivify and redefine the art of staycation, and to produce a special supplement that allows readers to experience life with Serin East.

Excited to be part of this collaboration on July 18, 2015, looking forward to taking part and cluing you all in as I will take part in crafting activities, such as rubber stamp-making to be demonstrated by Urban Abode, and DIY take-away succulents by Smarty Plants PH. Urban Abode will also enlighten event guests with a talk on space styling. The 16-page special supplement will be distributed at the afternoon affair in the Avida Showroom in Glorietta.

Redefining “weekend getaways,” Serin East will present a model unit designed by Lucina Home, which embodies the essence of living every day like a vacation. Its rustic chic design gives guests a glimpse of a relaxed and comfortable lifestyle.

Serin East Tagaytay is situated in Cavite’s most coveted vacation hotspot and is less than 5 minutes away from the Tagaytay rotunda. With its purpose of bringing vacation living to greater heights, Avida’s first project in a leisure destination provides its residents the pleasure of living their dream life to the fullest because of its splendid exclusivity.

For more information about Serin Tagaytay, you may visit their Avida showroom at 2F Glorietta 4, Makati City.

Yummy Baon Ideas

Say hello to another school year with a new set of Yummy Baon Ideas, thanks for Yummy Magazine’s first ever Big Baon Blowout. We have always been relying on Philippine’s number 1 food magazine to deliver a delightful full-day food affair with Yummy-approved concessionaires at the Trinoma Activity Center earlier today.

Moms of all shapes and sizes, with kids or even entire family in tow, lined up to hop from one booth to the next, sample all the best baon food options. Guest chefs Yummy Magazine’s Erickson John “IDGE” Mendiola, Assistant Managing Editor Katrina Luisa “TRINKA” Gonzales, Assistant Style Editor Ma. Rachelle “RACH” Santos, along with Smart Parenting’s contributing writer Michelle Aventajado with Good Housekeeping Food Editor Roselle Miranda whipped up a few recipes for everyone.

Had a blast of fun filling my plate that towards the end of it, I had a long list of baon options to take home to my kids. Look at my filled plate below, and I haven’t even started with the recipes and baon tutorials yet, prepared in a multi-tasking-mommy-friendly speed right before my eyes.

The Barista Juice – Part dessert. Wholly creamy frothy. Puree of health. Tried their lemon cold pressed juice, tasty for my palette, not sure though if kids will love the raw, organic taste.

Casa San Luis – granola bars made healthy. Would make perfect power bars for moms/dads and tasty snack bars for kids. With more than one flavour to choose from, kids will not realize they’re eating the same nuts they refuse to munch.
