My winning entry:

As a Sangobion woman, I promise to be a Woman of Value. I will embrace my Purpose, empower my Strength, keep a winning attitude and Nurture myself the best way I could.

Sangobion Go Love Life! is a campaign that empowers women to take care of themselves inside and out. It reminds us that we should take care of ourselves in order for us to take care of others. So True! (... but most of the time this is something that I keep on neglecting.)

#GoLoveLife Shopping Event

Wow! It had been a fab and enjoyable afternoon! #GoLoveLife winners were treated to an afternoon of yummy food at Shine Bakery & Cafe and a Php 4,000 shopping spree. Love the sweet and savory dishes, plus the dainty interior of the cafe.

I love to shop, especially for my kids. Well, this time around, I have to shop for myself. :)

We all got to showcase our new outfit after. See, Sangobion really helped women to empower and love themselves.

Another best thing is meeting online friends face to face and making new friends as well.

You can now send your name to Mars!

Sign up HERE to get your free space tickets. Just enter your name, country, postal code, and email address.

You'll get a personalized "flight ticket" just like the one I have. Cool spacey idea!

#Orion #JourneyToMars

Get your "boarding pass" now! Deadline for submitting your name for the Orion mission is on October 31. The first flight of Orion spacecraft (which will eventually transport humans to the Red Planet) will launch on December 4.

Well, this is NASA's effort to create more public interest in its space exploration program. If we can't step foot on the Red Planet, at least our names can fly on future NASA exploration flights and missions to Mars.

Space fans, astronaut-wannabees and kids would surely love this!

Golden moments at Lisa Macuja's birthday concert

Ms. Lisa Macuja's A Truly Classical Concert special birthday concert is truly golden!

The show marks two important milestones in her life - her 50th birthday and her 30th anniversary as a professional ballerina. I'm grateful, and my daughter was more than grateful for seeing this one-night only special concert.

Such a great performance!

We saw her perform Juliet in Romeo and Juliet with Ballet Manila principal Rudy de Dios. Wow! She's still in her best form... and that's perfection at its finest!

Everything - from the guest artists from Ballet Manila, Philippine Madrigal Singers and ABS-CBN Philharmonic Orchestra under the baton of Gerard Salonga - complements the classical theme beautifully.

Lisa Macuja then performed the role of Princess Aurora in Marius Petipa’s Sleeping Beauty Divertissement. Her partner, guest dancer Mikhail Martynyuk (as Prince Desire) of the Kremlim Ballet Theater was exceptional as well.

At the curtain call, the prima ballerina came out on stage in her glittery golden long gown. There, everyone joined in singing the Happy Birthday song.

Happy Birthday!
My daughter and I were in awe and admiration... a woman at her age can still dance with so much grace, passion and brilliance! She's a really treasure with a golden heart!

People who bought Lisa Macuja's pointe shoes get to meet and greet the prima ballerina after the show.So lucky!

my daughter wishes to have one of Lisa Macuja's signed pointe shoes
But then, we're grateful for this chance :)

And our brief yet golden moments with the prima ballerina!

happy to meet you Ms. Lisa... may you continue to dance, inspire and touch lives :)

Thank you so much Papa John's Pizza Philippines for the VIP tickets! We wouldn't be there without you. :)

Zoomanity Group: It's Cool to Visit a Zoo

Do you also love visiting a zoo?

I do. As a child, I enjoyed every zoo visit. It formed part of my treasured memories. I can still remember the zoos I've visited with my family here in the country and even outside the country. Plus, all those educational field trips. Thankful for having experienced it all.

As a mom, I'm glad that my kids got to experience zoo visits too. The first farm-zoo that they got to visit wayback 2009 was Paradizoo! I love how they face lit up (or got scared), how they interact and how curious they became as they saw different animals.

It's good to know that Zoomanity Group gives you ways to experience that coolest zoo adventure with the whole family. They have animal theme parks in the country that brings happiness, educational experiences and amusement with preservation and animal welfare. They provide an environment that lets everyone enjoy as they explore, stay and rediscover the happiness of visiting a zoo. That's really cool!

For your next family adventure, here are 5 Zoomanity Group theme parks worth visiting:

Paradizoo Farm

#throwback Paradizoo 2009
 If you want to enjoy nature while spending leisure time with family and friends, then you must visit Paradizoo Farm in Mendez, Cavite.

They have gardens full of vegetables and floral designs. You can also interact with different animals like llama, camels, miniature horses, ostriches, greyhounds, or labrador retrievers. If you want, you can also ride on a cart drawn by an albino carabao.

It's a place that will give you that "Plant Me Home” experience. You can pick vegetables and flowers from garden plots and bring it home.  You'll really love the beauty of this serene "Paradise."

Hope to visit this place again.


Zoobic Safari

#Cool2Zoo
See, it's really cool to zoo and it's something that I can say all over again!

It's always cool to see animals in their natural settings and even interact with them. Somehow, we can experience a stronger connection to nature, explore our environment and even make new discoveries. We'll get to know the welfare of these animals and see what is being done to protect animals that face extinction.

Be cool and visit a zoo!
