Where-to-Weekend: Junior Preneur 2013, Tiendesitas

summer activities for children, children, educational activities for children, events

What: Junior Preneur

Where: People’s Village, Tiendesitas, Pasig City

When: 14 April 2013, Sunday, 12noon-6pm

Although I do not aspire for the little man to be a rich man in his time {okay, probably just a little!}, I do want for him to be entrepreneurial and money-wise. This is why I am all for teaching him to be adept at handling money even at an early age. He may think we’re merely playing counting numbers as I encourage him to aim those coins onto his coin bank, but I am actually instilling in him the value of money and saving up. If he can carry on the habit to his teenage and adult life, I will such a happy mum!

Exposing the little one to activities that promote financial literacy and inspire entrepreneurial attitude in children is also a good way to introduce the concept of money and proper handling of it to kids and Junior Preneur is a perfect venue for this. When we attended their bazaar last year, we were treated to fun activities and the little man find it such a treat visiting booths that were managed and manned by children. We had such a nice experience, in fact, that we’re looking forward to the next Junior Preneur event which is slated on 13 April this year, still at the People’s Village in Tiendesitas, Pasig City.

Here is the program line up for this year’s event:

  • 08 am ~ Registration
  • 10 am ~ Briefing {stage are}
  • 12 nn ~ Ribbon Cutting – PRAYER Opening Ceremony – Kid’s go the Stage area to receive their Business Permit Certificates {everyone} & Briefly talk about their Business
  • 02 pm ~ 1st workshop {Cooking}
  • 03 pm ~ 2nd workshop {Dance}
  • 04 pm ~ 3rd workshop {Art}
  • 05 pm ~ Judging Time: Awards to be given
  • 06 pm ~ Closing {Kids will complete their Entrepreneurship Experience by receive their Passbooks one by one when they are called and choose the Foundation they choose}

Aside from being an educational activity for the little ones to engage in this summer, this is also one ideal bonding experience the whole family will enjoy. So save the date and see you all at the Junior Preneur 2013.

System Pavers: Bring The Joy of Outdoor Living in Your Own Backyard

Reviews, other reviews, site review

Exploring the great outdoor with your little ones will prove to be a very educational and worthwhile activity. Imagine all the new things he can see outdoors, the trees, the plants and flowers, and the animals and birds. It would be a perfect way to spend one lazy Saturday afternoon. Unfortunately, not most of us has easy access to enjoy outdoor living, especially when we live in the highly-urbanized cities, where the only thing you can see outdoors are looming sky scrapers and speeding cars, and the nearest outdoor you can check out is more than an hour away.

Kickin’ the Winter Blues $1000 Cash Giveaway


giveaways, announcement, giveaway alert

Welcome to the Kickin The Winter Blues Giveaway

Hosted by
Jenn’s Blah Blah Blog and Pink Ninja Media

Shopping with coupons is one of the best ways for mums to stretch the family budget.  With the great deals and discounts they offer, they allow for mums to avail of more items that she might need for the home and gives her more value for the hard-earned family money. One of the best things about coupons is that they offer even more savings when you buy in bulk, and with a family to feed and keep well-groomed, mums need to buy those grocery items, toiletries and personal hygiene products by the dozen! Keeping these god-send coupons in pocket-sized clear folders, to keep them organize and easy to toss onto eco-bags when it is time to do the groceries is becoming more like a habit for mums everywhere.

Although coupon shopping is not that much popular here at home than it is in the States, local mums find our own way of shopping for less through online Groupon sites that offer big discounts on grocery items, home appliances, as well as services and travel accommodations. Instead of clipping coupons, we print our vouchers and keep them in a folder so we can easily whisk them every time we’re availing of products at half the prices or services at 70% off. I even buy vouchers so the little man can play for hours and hours on end in a child’s soft play area for less than P200!

Coupon or what-not, if it helps mum save a few penny and avail of more products and services that requires for herself and her family, I say I am all for it, won’t you agree? :)

Simple Home Improvement Tips

home, cleaning at home, tips + tricks

Everyone loves to come home to a beautifully-made house at the end of a tiring work day. For us stay-at-home mums, there is nothing more precious than being cooped up with our little ones in the confines and comfort of our little lovely nests, even when we get all tired from the chores and our little bosses! Our home, with the familiar soothing scents and easy-on-the-eye pieces we put here and there, and the comfort it offers, more than make up for one tiring and stressful day.

We need not really break the bank to get on with that long-overdue home improvement projects, in fact we can start with really simple retouch in different parts of our homes and we’re all done. Of course, it will be much better if we can hire a professional to do this for us, but for most of us who cannot afford one, DIY-ing our home interior is the next best thing!

Here are a few things you might want to add to your home to make it more homey:

  • Install a new carpet ~ you can start with just a small one and put it in the living room, see  how it instantly adds life and color to the room. Even when you might require an expert carpet cleaning in the near future, you’ll agree that doing this is one of the easiest fix you can do for your home.
  • Bring plants and flowers indoors ~ place a pot of herbs on your dining table or a vase of colorful blooms in your bedroom. They instantly add character, not to mention a dash of color, to your living space. Notice how they make you feel more relaxed, too. I saw this lovely pot of lemon leaves in one blog a few days back and I am planning to make one of my own which I can put in my little dining table.
  • Love ’em scented candles ~ the calming scents do work wonders for the stressed and the over-worked. Light up a few of them while you dine or before you go to bed for one soothing experience. Just make sure to put them off before leaving them and keep the matches out of the little ones’ reach.
  • The paintings’ on the wall ~ nope, you do not necessarily need to purchase a very expensive painting from a distinguished artist, in fact, if you or anyone from the family has any artistic inclination, you can have your works framed and place it on any of your plain walls. Or, maybe you can make a lovely collage of your little one’s doodles and display it. This will inspire him more to create more masterpiece on his spare time!

It is quite simple to beautify your home, you do not need to have loads of extra cash in your wallet, even. All you need is a little creativity and unlimited imagination.
