Mumwrites + 4th Babypalooza Bazaar Giveaway!

In the light of what is happening now, the magnitude of the damage in the Visayas region left by Super Typhoon Yolanda, the multitude of people still requiring help and assistance, we all could use some good news to keeps us going. The relief operations finally reaching the survivors in Tacloban and other areas is quite a good news for me. People are finally getting the aid they are most desperate to get. Let us continue to be vigilant and observant of the latest relief and rescue operation developments and be quick to help in in whichever way we can. Our kababayans in the typhoon-flattened areas needed all the help they can get.

Where: Walter Hogan Conference Center, ISO, Ateneo de Manila University, QC campus.

Here’s another great weekend event for mums + mums-to-be, the Babypalooza Bazaar!

For unique shopping experience, the bazaar also features a Vendor Protection Program {VPP}, ensuring that items sold by one Babypalooza vendor will not be sold by another, so the bazaar-goers will not see the same stuff from several vendors over again, making the bazaar far more interesting and worthwhile.

Air-conditioned breastfeeding and diaper changing areas, as well as children’s play zone and daddy lounge will be designated. There is also free-parking and entrance.
