Now Open: Active Fun in Shoppesville

We were thrilled to know that Active Fun has a branch very near to us! This means an easier way to plan after-school play dates. Z and Y checked it out and we liked what we saw.

The very cool wall climbing area!

+1 for having a restroom inside the play area premises.
I like to mop!

Soshal! Raskorg for doctor’s tools.

The area is divided into two – a pretend play area and a more active playground type. You can go into both for P400/child/hour. I find an hour for both limiting so better to stick to one area if you won’t be staying for more than an hour.

The active playground has pads and foams all over for safety, though only foam benches are placed by the glass windows. There were 2 sets of slides short enough for kids ages 3 and up to go on their own. I especially liked the wall climbing area as it’s the first time I saw one for kids. It’s meant for kids 8 years old and above but I let Z try it and he got halfway through! It is spacious enough for kids to run around safely but I hope the management will put a limit as it may get crowded, especially if adults will also be going in.

For security, kids are given bracelet stickers and the designated person to pick them up is given a fetcher’s card. A restroom can be found inside the play area so there’s no need to go out anymore. There were a 5-6 staff present while we were there.

Hopefully, they get to maintain the state of the toys and facilities so they will be open for a long time! This momma needs to have a place to bring her energetic kids to, haha!

Goo.n Diapers is now in the Philippines

Moms today are lucky to have a lot of options in baby care products. It gives us the freedom to choose which one suits our needs best; gives more buck to our money; and aligns with our values. And just recently, more imported brands have been making its way to our country because Filipino moms are discerning and meticulous about the products they use for their babies. One of these is Goo.n Diapers!

Goo.N Diapers is a leading diaper brand in Japan, Thailand and Indonesia. It is known for its ultra absorbent core and super soft, dry, and breathable outer sheets that keep moisture away from your baby’s precious skin! Both tape and pants type can absorb up to 5 cups of liquid and remain dry.

After absorbing 5 cups, Goo.n feels dry and does not sag. But if it’s tearing up on the seams, I think it’s time to change it even though it still feels dry. 

During the launch, sisters and new moms, Jessica Kienle-Maxwell and Stephanie Kienle-Gonzalez both shared how Goo.n is keeping up with their on-the-go lifestyle. They’re coping well with motherhood because their babies get uninterrupted sleep, all thanks to Goo.n!

Brand ambassadors, Stephanie and Jessica shares their motherhood stories.
Amber Smith-Folkman and Erik Menk, brand ambassadors of Goo.n also shared funny parenting anecdotes.

GOO.N offers premium (GOO.N Premium) and economy (GOO.N Friend) diapers. Each one comes in pants and tape variants depending on your child’s needs and diaper demands.

GOO.N Diapers are available in SM Hypermarket, Rustans, Robinsons, Lazada, Makati Supermarket, Pioneer, Unimart, Rose Pharmacy, Generica, Puregold (Duty Free), Landers, Baby Company, Fishermall. Alfamart, Cash and Carry, Alturas, and others, and comes in different sizes from Newborn to XXXL. SRP: GOO.N Premium Tape/Pant Super Jumbo – Php 680.00 and Jumbo – Php 420.00 and GOO.N Friend Tape Super Jumbo – Php 439.00, Jumbo – Php 229.00, Regular – Php 79.00

We received samples of Goo.n Premieum and Goo.n Friend. They also have wet wipes to complete the diaper changing experience! Large feels snug and right on my 2 year old (she weighs 12 kilos).

We have been experiencing issues with our usual diaper brand when we use it overnight. But, with Goo.n, there was no leaks, smell or discomfort! It was not sagging when she woke up that I wasn’t such in a hurry to change her.

Yes, this is Goo.n used overnight!

Babies and toddlers can really go on with Goo.n because it doesn’t stop them from playing or having a much-needed nap. I’m a convert and it is now listed in our grocery list. Y approves of it too!

Goo.n is available in convenient packs, making it easier to bring to the mall or out of town!

Staycation at Conrad Manila

Our third staycation for this year might be the best one, yet! My mom has been telling me to book a room at Conrad Manila ever since it opened last year and I knew the perfect time to stay there was during the Pyrolympics. So, on the last night when France and Philippines will be displaying their fireworks show, we had the best seats available!

Everything about this hotel is picturesque! Upon entering the lobby on the 3rd floor, you will be greeted by the view of the Manila Bay in their floor-to-ceiling glass windows. Y and I were both stunned and must have had our jaws dropped at the scene.

Check-in time is at 3PM so you'll definitely be welcomed with this view.

Since we were there for the Pyrolympics, we were advised to get a Suite. It was comfortable for our group composed of 5 adults and 2 kids. Both Z and Y were all “Wow’s” about our room, even asking if it was our new house.

The extra bed in the living room fit right in.

We stayed in a one-bedroom suite. The bed was really soft!

The kids couldn’t stop roaming around and inspecting every nook! That sofa can also be a sleeping area.

I wish I bought their robes! It was perfect for my lamigin skin!

You want space?! A massive bathroom awaits.

There’s a LED screen in the mirror if you want to have the TV as a background noise while in the bath.

COMFIEST HOTEL SLIPPERS EVERRRR!

You know you’re Pinoy if you get these as souvenirs, hehehe.

 

Before the show, we stuffed ourselves silly at the Executive Lounge located at the 7th floor where they have cocktail hour nightly. Unlimited alcohol, yeah! The food was really good so we expected the buffet breakfast to be at par.

And the breakfast buffet at Brasserie on 3 did not disappoint! For just P950 per person, you’ll be treated to two tables of pastries, a salmon bar, a selection of Filipino and Western breakfast staples, an assortment of Japanese sushi and Chinese dumplings and a juice bar! Yup, we were full until the afternoon!

After breakfast, you can lounge by the pool which is on the same floor. It was a little bit cold so we didn’t stay that long. A small part of the pool is just 2 feet so it’s perfect for little kids! They have lounge chairs and day beds around the pool so we were tempted to get a Corona to complete the experience!

Z and Y's Wawa.

True to the hotel’s tagline, we left inspired and rejuvenated for another week! Staycations in an amazing place like Conrad Manila is the perfect breather for a yaya-less mom like me. Shout-out to JB Aquino for all the perks and suggestions. Thinking of booking again soon!

Oh by the way, here are some pictures of the fireworks taken using my Huawei P9.
