Hey, Mommies need a break too, right? Not just a day in the salon but some time off with friends as well. Well, I took mine yesterday. Woohoo! I attended an event spearheaded and organized by Mommy Pehpot and Mommy Ruby…the PMC 2nd Grand EB at Aling Tonya’s Seafood Restaurant in Pasay City.
Nothing stopped the Mommies from attending the fun-filled meet-up yesterday…not even the rain. Though I must admit the weather made it harder for me as I have 2 big eco bags of tokens for my friends in PMC. I got wet and all but who cares? It is nothing compared to the fun and happiness that the meet up brought me. I was able to finally meet the Moms whom I only see in pictures and chat with in Facebook.
Yours truly was one of the committees assigned in registration and giving away of loot bags from our generous sponsors…
That’s me in green.
All Moms went home full-handed with tokens from fellow Mommy bloggers and loot bags from our sponsors…
Gifts from Mommies
from Unilab, Ibuprofen Dolan, Ascorbic Acid Ceelin
from Smart Steps
from Umami (Ajinomoto), Scotch Brite, Procter & Gamble, Geiser Maclang
Other sponsors are World of Wellness and Goldquest Biomedical Technologies that gave Php5000 which we used to cover other expenses.
Before the program starts, late lunch was served. Moms, including me, forgot about our diet plans for a while and feasted with the sumptuous meal. Well, you can’t blame us…seafood are just irresistible!
Then Mommy Ruby Ricafrente, gave a short talk about PMC…how it was born and it’s mission and vision.
According to her, Pinay Mommies Community is a community of Filipina Mommy bloggers that she created four years ago. Its aim is to help the members grow as bloggers and to prove that Moms not just take care of the kids, cook, fold the laundry, etc. Moms, who are mostly college graduates, can also be good writers who can share their parenting experiences, insights, humor and even frustrations. That Mommy bloggers are not just after the loot bags and freebies but also for a good cause. Now, the community is aiming to help a charity institution. I am really honored to be part of this community. It is making a real difference in the blogging world.
