Y’s 3rd Birthday

For someone *just* turning 3, Y was very focused on how the celebration should be! She had a say on every little detail and considers it to be her “happiest day ever!” and still talks about it until now.

She was very adamant that the party be held in her school so she will be able to celebrate it with her classmates. It was a good idea as they were only 20 kids in the school so allotting budget for snacks and giveaways weren’t that painful to the wallet and it was easy to DIY the invitations.

With her teachers at Discovery Barn Preschool.
For the kids: spaghetti, BBQ and puto from Bacolod Chicken Inasal.
For the adults: Garlic Rice, Chicken and Turon also from Bacolod Chicken Inasal.

So, for our My Little Pony-themed party, Y wanted to have ponies. And ponies she got! We had Make Believe Storytellers act out an interactive story starring Rarity, Rainbow Dash and Spike. Both kids and adults were laughing and moving to the story. It was a hit and my little birthday girl enjoyed every minute of it! I highly recommend their services as they really give what you want and would adjust to your needs.

Of course, a birthday celebration isn’t complete without sweets! For the second consecutive time, Bea of Bellefleur by Beatrix made Y’s colorful birthday cake! I had Y looking at pegs on Pinterest and she chose the design but said to only have one chocolate cake. So, that’s what she got and she was over the moon happy as we had cake-blowing in the school and at home. We also received cute, whimsical cupcakes baked by The Cake Project Manila. It had boiled icing which gave of the nostalgic feeling of a birthday party during the 90’s. Thank you Tita Marla for the cupcakes!

Speaking of sweets, we filled a Rainbow Dash pinata with lots of it! Thanks to Facebook, we discovered Kackie’s Pinata and she accommodated our order even with just a week’s notice.

And what’s a celebration without awesome pictures to remember it by?! Thank you Ripples of Life Photo and Video for indulging our family for a mini-portrait session after the celebration. I absolutely love how they turned out. Can’t wait to have them printed.

To my strong-willed baby girl, you bring a lot of color to our life. We love you soooo much, Y!

Mommy Mundo and Sun Life Financial’s PA TXT Card

Sponsored Post

When I was a new mom, I consulted a lawyer friend if I should make a will indicating who I want to take care of my children should I die before they are well-abled adults, a la Raising Helen. Yes, you can say I was praning or over-acting but you can never be too cautious and prepared when you are a mom. And this is why I appreciate the partnership of Mommy Mundo and Sun Life Financial in providing the members of the biggest mommy community in the country, a Personal Accident Insurance.

So, why is it called PA TXT Card?

Because moms need convenience and efficiency, this personal accident insurance can be activated by just inputting a few taps on your mobile phone. Similar to the load cards of our youth (am I dating myself?!), there’s a scratch box that will reveal your certificate number, your proof of registration.

No paper work. No lines. No hidden agenda.

You read that right: this provides Php. 50,000 for one year.

I want one! How much is it to avail?

For just Php. 500, you get:

  • a Mommy Mundo Passport;
  • a Mom 24/7 Planner;
  • a Mommy Mundo Journey Box – a curated set of items depending on what stage of motherhood you’re in;
  • discounts, privileges, event invitations and;
  • a Personal Accident Insurance from Sun Life Financial!
What’s inside the Journey Box: lots of mom and baby approved products!

 

I think this is the only accident insurance that has this much perks!

Moms between the ages of 18 to 64 and do not belong to occupations under Exclusions Provision (which can be found in the packet) are eligible to apply. A maximum coverage of Php. 100,000 can be availed by enrolling two cards. This insurance policy provides protection for one whole year upon registration.

This is available during Mommy Mundo events such as the upcoming Expo Mom North happening on July 15 – 16 at Trinoma.

In case you still have a valid Mommy Mundo Passport, just present it during the event and you automatically get a PA TXT Card.

Present during the launch and contract signing are: Karen Casas (Chief Operations Officer Sun Life Philippines); Alex Narciso (President & Chief Agency Distribution Officer, Sun Life – Philippines); Riza Mantaring (Country Head & CEO Sun Life of Canada Philippines Inc.); Janice Villanueva (CEO & Founder Mommy Mundo); Jing Lejano (Content Head Mommy Mundo); Regine Chua (Marketing Specialist Mommy Mundo).

Affordable.

Convenient.

Made for moms.

Though, I don’t intend to use this insurance policy, it is good to have since there are little kids dependent on me. If ever, God forbid, something untoward happened to me, this can help my family make the first step financially. In a society where “insurance” connotes a negative impression, the Mommy Mundo and Sun Life Financial’s PA TXT Card may be a mom’s first step towards a brighter future.

I received monetary compensation for this blog post. Rest assured, all my opinions are genuine and from my heart.

MomBrandLove: Vaughnderland

MomBrandLove is the newest category on this blog. This is in awe of mompreneurs who lovingly put a lot of effort in their business along with juggling tasks for kids, husband, the home and everything in between! I hope that my blog will be an avenue for other moms to discover mom-made products. Moms support moms, yeah!

Motherhood has got me rekindling friendship with ladies from my high school. It’s fun to realize that we’re still the same girls but has matured on to topics about parenting, faith and surviving life in general. I’ve survived countless of sleepless nights chatting with them as we were all going through the same phases of motherhood as our first-borns were born a few months apart. And now, Vaughn, one of my Mommy-mates, has ventured on to the world of vlogging, and I couldn’t be more happier!

Vaughnderland

You see, Vaughn lives in the US with her husband and daughter, while her immediate family is here in the Philippines. It has been her second-nature to make videos to update her family and friends of what is happening with them, where they went for a vacation, and an outlet for Vaughn to air out her thoughts since she is with her daughter 24/7! I’m really curious with their situation that I always ask her a lot of things whenever we chat since I cannot imagine living in another country while raising a family! And through her videos, I learn a lot and I’m really in awe with how great of a mom and person she is!

I’m looking forward to more of her videos as I know that her daughter will be starting school already and she’s on a quest to have another baby! It will be an exciting time for her family! Do subscribe to their YouTube channel and like their Facebook Page!
