Moms’ Fair at The Orchard Golf and Country Club

Mother’s Day has always been a special event for everyone, not just for moms.  I am a mother myself, but do take note that I have a mom too – as such I make sure that Mother’s Day every year should be celebrated for my mom.

The Orchard Golf and Country Club is a familiar place for us as this is where my little brother had his elementary graduation rites – but we haven’t really entered the place other than that as this is a membership club.  Good thing, they opened their doors to non-member guests last May 14 in an event called Mom Matters, a Mom Fair. 

Part of The Orchard Golf and Country Club.

So we decided to take advantage of their Mother’s Day brunch at The Orchard and join the Mom fair.  Brunch buffet cost Php675 per head and admission to Mom’s fair is free.  The events hall was divided into two: the brunch area and the mom’s fair area.  Upon entrance to the events hall, an event passport was given to all moms to complete and try all the sponsors of the Mom Matters fair.  It also acts as a raffle stub once completed.

All moms who entered the events hall were given a gift bag - which includes goodies from the sponsors.  It was a very thoughtful gesture from the event’s organizer.

We roam around the Mom’s fair first before having our brunch.  Several sponsors were there to introduce and re-introduce their products.

After completing our event passport, we had our brunch buffet.  The area was beautifully decorated with flowers and each table was neatly arranged.

The menu selections were mostly for lunch, actually.  Sumptuous food were offered at the buffet area.  Pasta and rice together with viands such as seafood, pork, chicken, and beef were served.  There are also roast beef and pork belly stations.  Salads and cold cuts were also available.  Filipino desserts were also present.  Drinks were included in the buffet.  

Cotton candy for the little boy. 

After filling our tummies with delicious food from the buffet, we went back to the fair as the program includes speakers from select sponsors.  Raffle prizes were given away and some sponsors treated mommies to pampering and beautification demos.  It was one event that mommies enjoyed.  My mom and my grandma both enjoyed it and I am one happy daughter as it was a Mother’s Day well spent.

Office Gatherings Are Extra Special With Cheers Napkin

All full-time working moms would agree that working in the office is very challenging.  Other than the daily commute, the 8 to 9 hours office/field work can be very exhausting.  But what makes it really hard for working moms is the fact that you are away from your family for more than 10 hours of your day. 

Thank God for friends in the office that makes office life wonderful.  And what makes a great office bonding activity?  Gatherings!  And office gatherings are best with food.  And when there’s food – there’s got to be napkins!

A lot of you would think that napkin is only necessary in the kitchen or when you are going on a picnic.  Let me enumerate to you some ways on how napkins are also handy in the office – especially during get-togethers and gatherings.

There are a variety of napkins sold in the market, but there’s one brand that stands out among them: Cheers.  Cheers is a brand of quality hygienic napkins and paper towels that comes in various patterns and is perfect for gatherings and get-togethers.  Every Cheers napkin and paper towels are made of 100% Virgin Pulp and has no artificial whiteners and elemental chlorine.  It also comes with different print designs that are colorful and fun.

At the office, every employee considers napkin as part of their essential needs.  This is most especially during gatherings and get-togethers.  Cheers comes in handy for me and my office friends as it comes in variety of configurations.

Cheers Table Napkin size 200x200mm and Cheers folded Party Napkin are perfect for wiping our hands and table wares prior to eating.  These varieties are also very handy in wiping out our office tables once we are done with our gathering (our lunch).

Cheers Table Napkin size 200x100mm is just right for wiping our mouths smeared with food.   The size is perfect for wiping our faces once we are done eating.  Putting Cheers Table Napkin of this variation close to us while eating, makes it accessible for us to cover our faces/mouths when sneezing or when we get choked by foods.

Cheers Flat Table Napkin is just perfect for wrapping the sandwiches we bring for snacks.  It has the right size in wrapping a normal size bread and very good for sharing to my colleagues. 

Cheers Kitchen Towel provides a unique usage for me during office gathering, other than drying hands.  It acts as a make-do placemat so our office tables remain clean even after small gatherings.  

Cheers brand also comes with other get-together essentials such as starch-based cutlery and trash bags.   Not all offices allow you to wash your table wares, as not all offices have a pantry.  Cheers cutlery set of fork and spoons are the ideal partner of our office foods. 

At the end of every get-togethers and gatherings, we make sure to keep our office environment clean.  This is how Cheers Trash Bags helps us a lot.  It is biodegradable (which all trash bags should be) and comes with a tie for every bag so it’s easy to wrap. 

Now, that I’ve shared to you how napkins, particularly Cheers, can make office gatherings extra special, why don’t you go and buy Cheers Napkins and plan a small office gathering with your office friends.  You know, this will make your office life a little bit more enjoyable.

Japan 2017: The Happy Boy at Thomas Land

One of the main reasons we went to Fuji-Q Highland is to visit Thomas Land.  Our little boy is so much fond of Thomas and Friends since he was still a toddler until now and so visiting Thomas Land is a must for our Japan trip.

We were able to secure a free entrance pass to Fuji-Q Highland (thanks to the flyer we saw at Kawaguchiko station) so we decided to just buy Neo an all-day-pass to Thomas Land costing JPY2900 for kids 3-11 years old. 

Neo with Thomas and Sir Topham Hat.

Thomas Land is every little boy’s heaven.  It is a theme park dedicated to all Thomas and Friends fanatics, just like our little boy.  Several statues of Thomas and his friends, such as Percy and James, are spread out through-out Thomas Land.

There are various ride attractions catered to the young kids.  All of these ride attractions are Thomas and Friends themed.  There’s the regular train rides which has Thomas and James as your trains.  There’s also a helicopter ride inspired by Harold.  And a lot more.

Also, there is so much Thomas and Friends inspired merchandises sold at the souvenir shop.  Aside from the usual toys, there are also unconventional souvenirs you can buy like macaroni noodles, tissue paper, washi tapes, toothbrushes, slippers, and a lot more.

With the all-day-pass, Neo can ride to all Thomas Land attractions without incurring additional cost to us…or so we thought.  Apparently, since Neo is still below 6 years old, a parent or guardian needs to accompany him in every Thomas Land attractions.  Each attraction cost around JPY200-400 to ride.  The hubby and I had to pay for every ride our little boy tried to accompany him.  The all-day-pass was not worth it.   L  So if you will go, just pay for each ride your little kid will take.

We spent so much in touring Thomas Land, but every yen spent was all worth it.  Our little boy was so happy.  I know that day spent at Thomas Land will forever be a happy memory for our little boy. J

Japan 2017: A Day at Fuji-Q Highland

Fuji-Q Highland is a theme park located at Yamanashi Prefecture in Japan.  This theme park is close to Mt Fuji and so we decided to visit it the same day we went to see Mt. Fuji.  But there is also a very personal reason we wanted to see Fuji-Q Highland.  It is because Thomas Land is located inside Fuji-Q theme park.  Our little boy has been a fan of Thomas and Friends ever since he was a toddler, and so it is very vital that we visit Thomas Land.

Fuji-Q Highland is home to several interesting rides and attractions.  Aside from Thomas Land, there are also other family oriented attractions in Fuji-Q.  Anime themed attractions are also present in Fuji-Q.  But what makes Fuji-Q Highland famous is because it is home to Japan’s most thrilling roller coasters.

Entrance to Fuji-Q Highland cost JPY1500 for adults and JPY900 for kids above 3 years old.  You have to pay to ride or enter in any attractions.  We were lucky since when we visited Lake Kawaguchiko, we saw a voucher that gives tourist free entrance to Fuji-Q Highland.  That was JPY3900 savings for us! J

Now let us take a photo tour on what you can see inside Fuji-Q Highland. 

Fuji-Q is home to Thomas Land.  We spent most of our time inside Thomas Land and this made the little boy’s visit a very memorable one.

Kids’ get to have fun at Fuji-Q as there are rides catered to them. 

Hamtaro Ride.

Nagashimakusa – an elevated water raft ride. 

Ice skating area. 

There are also anime themed attractions inside Fuji-Q.  We were given free passes to Evangelion World (aside from the free entrance fee).  This attraction cost JPY800 to enter.  Neo wasn’t happy with this as he find the place very scary.

Fuji-Q Highland is famous for its thrilling roller coasters.  There’s the Tentekomai where you will soar high up and spin around (Entrance: JPY800).  The Fujiyama, also known as the King of Coasters, has a maximum speed of 130km/hr and has a maximum drop of 70m (Entrance: JPY1000).  The Eejanaika, the coaster which has the highest number of spins in the world (Entrance: JPY1000).  The Takabisha, the coaster which has the steepest drop at 121 degrees (Entrance: JPY1000).  And a lot more.

 Here are some of the few we saw but would never ever ride hahaha :D

The Tentekomai. 

The Takabisha and Eejanaika.

Our day at Fuji-Q Highland was a wonderful one.  This was the first time I entered a theme park that I only rode one attraction (to top it all, that attraction is a kiddie ride), but I had so much fun.  Watching people scream at the top of their lungs while riding thrilling rides is fun no?  But what’s more fun is seeing the happy face of our little boy the whole time we were inside Fuji-Q Highland.
