Philam Life & PFF Kick Off New Beginnings For Yolanda Survivors

Forming a partnership that looks toward nation building, education, and sports, the Philam Life and Philippine Football Federation (PFF) are working hand-in-hand to reconstruct schools affected by one of the country’s most disastrous storms on record, Typhoon Yolanda.

To help rebuild the educational institutions of Samar, Leyte, and Iloilo, the Philippine Football Federation will dedicate USD 250,000 to build at least 11 new classrooms
under the Philam Paaralan program of Philam Foundation Inc., the corporate social responsibility arm of Philam Life.

Among the schools benefiting from this charitable team-up are Dolores National High School and San Julian Elementary School of Eastern Samar; Alang-Alang Central Elementary School and the Dulag SPED Center of Leyte; and Carlo Lopez National High School of Iloilo.

Aside from their projects which focus on rehabilitation and reconstruction, the PFF and Philam Life also recognize the value of community and teamwork. They are currently organizing the first ever PFF-Philam Life Football Festival to celebrate the irrepressible spirits of those who kept going despite incredible adversity.

The PFF-Philam Life Football Festival aims to develop local provincial football associations in select provinces. These associations will then host football tournaments for teams composed of children aged six to 12 years.

Its goal is to help promote and upgrade grassroots and youth football competitions in the country, and to encourage greater awareness and appreciation for the sport.

This generosity matchup between Philam Life and the PFF will help Filipinos, especially those facing adversity, score a healthier lifestyle and a happier disposition.

Pre-School Gold's Multiple Intelligence Recognition Day

As a parent, I always try to balance everything for my kids – like I let them do their assignments on their own and help them if they will ask me too. I let them play and explore because I always believe that through play, you can offer intellectual (Brain Smart), physical (Body Smart) and social-cultural (People Smart)  development in them. Mostly, motivate and support them so they can become the best that they can be. A chance to explore and recognize their Multiple Intelligence to help them achieve the most success.

I always try to recognize the very little things that my kids do because I now that in this little way, I'am able to show or let them feel that I appreciate and love them. Like today, Euki, son who is in Grade1, came home with this award of being The most Responsible student in their class. I was very lucky to have a seven years old responsible son.

Sundate with Jollibee and SpongeBob

How was your long weekend? Our family spent the Joyous Saturday on a day-swimming at Sitio Lucia Resort in Sta Maria, Bulacan. The next day, of course was Easter Sunday, husband and I attended a special worship service at Grace Christian Church. In the afternoon, we were at SM North EDSA Cinema 2 with Tina and her kids  for the special screening of "SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water"

Family Bonding with Jollibee and SpongeBob The Movie
Wefie using #SonyActionCam

The movie was funny and very entertaining both for the kids and kids-at-heart. Even if we're not watching SpongeBob on television and not really familiar with all the characters, we enjoyed the movie. Anyway, we can ask the kids about these characters, lol! For the first time, SpongeBob SquarePants, kids favorite sea dwelling invertebrate, comes out of the sea and invaded our world in search of the Krabby Patty secret-recipe.

Ready Meals Available at Family Mart

Ready Meals Available at Family Mart
I know that its not just me who's getting caught up in busy schedule and hectic “mommy” lifestyles. My schedule for the day varies depending on the activities of my kids, either go to school, to the park, mall, and go biking. I'm not a morning person but since my kids needs to be in school as early as 6am, sometimes, I find it hard to prepare food for them. Being a mom on the go, I realize the importance of making sure that I give myself and kids the right nourishment.

Recently I attended this year's Philippine FamilyMart CVS, Inc. launched for its Health and Wellness line. Eating healthy has never been this convenient – no need to spare hours to prepare when it’s now just a few minutes away with exceptional ready meals available straight from any Philippine FamilyMart store nationwide.

Montessori De San Juan Celebrates 40 Years

More than 20 years ago, my parents were discussing about their children's education - what type of school, public or private? I've heard about Montessori but we thought studying there was very expensive. So my parents decided to send us in a Catholic school instead.

Nowadays, people want to enroll their children in progressive schools that do away with the rigid structure of traditional standardized education. Many institutions are breaking free from this worn-out model, creating learning sessions, doing away with homework, and letting children have more control over their own education. But this alternative education system is not a new development. In fact, at least one education system in the Philippines has been ahead of its time for forty years, with the rest of the country slowly catching up. This is the Montessori school system. This year, Montessori de San Juan (MSJ) is celebrating its 40th year in the country.

The celebration kicked off the year with a Math and Science fair. The kids made a grand showing of their Montessori-wrought creativity and innovation, with projects like a solar-powered oven, a light bulb that switches on when its cord is dipped into a glass of water, a cleaning spray made from vinegar, and other promising inventions. These projects, inventive accomplishments for such young children, are proof that the Montessori way works.
