UPDATED: April 6, 2015

Hey parents! Spend your kid’s summer with worthwhile activities, please set aside excessive plays with your pre-approved hand-held devices. No those gadgets like ipads, tablets, xbox won’t add up knowledge during the development stage they’re at it now. You’ve seen how Steve Jobs and his crew managed to educate their children. They were not allowed to get hooked on consumer gadgets their parents invented, why not? Because the key to educate children depends on the architectural process. How kids absorbed ideas, recreate ideas or come up with an idea of their OWN that isn’t fed by technology made by adults ahead of them. Instead the children are engage in building concepts through orientation with objects, with people and their surroundings.

We’ve compiled 2015 summer activities and programs to engage your child with meaningful play and vacation. Here’s a list we have gathered, we will update the lists from time to time. Note that starting this year we wont include workshops from fast-food establishments and the likes. The 2015 list wanted to focus more on workshops about arts and interesting  activities.

Philippines is beginning to feel the summer heat as the school year ends and laid back days for the children is about to begin. Most children and young adult will spend the long and lazy phase as they juggle around different summer activities for kids that are worth spending. Home-based recreation and pastime may attract boredom and redundancy such watching TV, video and online games. Alternative summer activities outside your home are an ideal form of learning and at the same time having fun in honing the natural talents of your child. Let their creative minds and abilities shine as they explore their growing years. Expose the children to a creative approach to properly sharpen the imagination by letting them join  workshops, summer camps, enrichment studies and other exciting summer activities.

Momsky Flies to London for
London Olympic Games 2012

With Procter & Gamble


This year London Olympic Games 2012 will bring noise and loud cheers as we support Filipino athletes representing our country, Philippines. As families and friends and the Filipino troops will fly to London to  experience the fun thrills of sportsmanship and bonding all together.  Going to London even for a few days will rock my travel adventures, what makes it lovelier is to spend it with your family. What we crave from United Kingdom’s diversified culture, resources, and its people — they can manage their time efficiently in between work and leisure. Plus given the fact that they are inclined to literature and arts that is uniquely English, in a way other nationals tried to emulate.

Come end of July, the world will cheer for the London Olympic Games 2012 in the UK’s Isles of Wonder, Procter & Gamble, the Proud Sponsor of Moms celebrated a milestone for Melita Barriga a simple housewife from Davao and the mother of our Filipino boxer – London 2012 Olympic qualifier, Mark Barriga. We celebrated a moment in which her support and diligence as a mom is fulfilled as her son’s accomplishment is realized when he walked into the roaring crowds at the Parade of Colors bearing the Philippine Flag on his uniform.

To help one whose efforts for the past 18 years has brought us an athlete that the country can surely be proud of in the London Olympic Games 2012, Procter & Gamble, in gratitude for her dedication, is flying Melita Barriga, together with husband Edgar Barriga, to London to enable her to show her love and support to Filipino Boxing representative Mark Barriga simply by cheering for him.

When we we’re kids, we used to daydream about qualifying in the Olympics, being famed in synchronized swimming, tennis or artistic gymnastics maybe are one of many delusions I vividly fabricate. Those dreams and the momentums arises every time I get to watch Olympic games. Do you have that same crazy illusions like mine? 🙂

I am one of the invited media/bloggers to witness the preparation for the family’s trip to the London Olympic Games 2012 where they will see her son’s bouts,  Procter & Gamble held an intimate party over Afternoon Tea at the Manila Peninsula with the participation of the British Council.

The setting of the place emanated the culture of elegance that London is known for, and Ms. Anama Dimapilis, Procter & Gamble Corporate Communications Manager, balanced it with her lively hosting as she emulated the variety of accents to be heard in the bustling city.

“Momsky”, as Melita is lovingly called by her children, learned more general information and some key details about London to get her ready. With the briefing conducted by Mike Cabigon of the British Council, she and husband “Popsky” learned about the London weather, what to wear, the nuances in culture, how to interact with the locals and a crash course on geography and how to get around in the city. They also picked up some words to help them communicate in the language of Londoners, such as the loo for comfort room, lift for elevator, and telly for television. They also learned more about typical English food fare like Fish and Chips and even got to experience tea, fancy little cakes and scones. This will definitely help Momsky when she gets to meet other Moms from all over the globe who, through Procter & Gamble, are also in London to cheer for their athlete children. She will be able to experience this historical event with other moms, and share this momentous occasion with them.

At the end of the program, Procter & Gamble presented them with their passport with UK Visa, jackets, and a care package to help them during their first trip outside of the country. Finally, the British Council gave them a book of games about London and the Olympics to help while their time while on the plane.

Momsky will also be bringing the hopes of those who yearn for the first gold medal for the Philippines, as well as the faith of those who wish that her son fares well. The most important thing that Momsky is bringing to London, however, is the support that she has always provided for Mark Barriga – the love she has always had for her son, the boy that she raised to be an Olympic athlete, through her own rather Olympic feat.

For the London Olympic Games 2012 frenzy, I’ll be updating this post as our very own Mark Barriga and the rest of the  Philippine team progresses to attain the coveted medals and honors to be  able to mark a name in the Olympic history.
