Halloween Party @ SCEVHA

Sam pink fairy this time

Was able to attend another great and fun but rainy halloween party @ the village lat Oct. 28, 2008. This time, Sam was wearing a pink fairy costume, while her ate Aynrand was wearing the black version. The little Anya wore a cute ladybug costume naman..hihi! :p Thanks to Irish for the invites beacuse we really had a great time especially Sam.

She met new friends and was really happy that she saw Jollibee again!...weeeh! Unfortunately, the house to house trick or treating was not push through because of the heavy rain that was almost non-stop that day. The treats was sent to the clubhouse instead so that the kids can still enjoy filling their loots. Sam almost bagged a full of goodies with very less effort...hehe! Happy Halloween!

KidsTime Magazine Launch

The launch of KT yesterday was a success! Sam & I were able to join the celebration along with mommy Stef and kids...again!..haha and really had a great time. The venue was a bit small for the invited guests. Maybe because the the 1adult=1child policy was not push through at all. Thanks so much Mommy Mel for allotting us a place to seat. Anyways, the venue was fully decorated with colorful balloons, hanging flowers ang butterflies cookies, choco fountain, yummy kiddy food carts and beautiful centerpiece cakes! Sam can't get enough of looking @ the place...busog na busog ang mga mata ika nga!..hehe They really exerted an effort to make it like a wonderland as what they promised. Not to mention great in food carts pa lang busog ka na. And most of all the place was flooded with cakes! in the edible one and not for deco purposes only. Sobra dami, ikaw ang mauumay!


Sam with Banky, Keanna & ate Jhaz

I saw some familiar faces from showbizness and media who joined the celebration. It's nice to see again some of our very friendly online mommies there. You know who you are... di ko na mention, dami nyo eh..hehe! So sad nga lang because less photo ops and group pics for cam suddenly got low in battery!...waaah! Anyways, the kids where the one who really enjoyed the celebration, which is my main purpose why I decided to attend anyway. I only wanted Sam to enjoy these kind of kiddie events. And thanks to Stef for joining us because she almost decided not to attend talaga. :p Sam really like the puppet and magic shows. They were also giving away very nice prizes for those who participated in the games. A raffle draw which I won a 2 GC from Jungle Joe. They also gave cellphones who can answer some trivia questions. The magazines were already distributed and they sell extra copies for those who wanted to purchase more. Hays, It's really a tiring but exciting and fun day for all of us especially for the kiddie models of KT and members of CA.

Congratulations MZ and DC for a very succesful launch! And thanks so much for the opportunity. God Bless and More Power! :p

Trick or Treat @ Fun Ranch

my little witchy witch

I was able to bring Sam to attend her first ever Trick or Treat experience @ Fun Ranch, Tiendesitas earlier this afternoon. We went there together with mommy Stef along with ate Keanna & ate Jhaz. The place was jam-packed with different kids wearing their cutest, scariest and most unique halloween costumes. There was a program that includes games, raffles and stage performers. And there was also the most awaited best in costume awarding ceremony. Oh well, di ko na kinarir pagsali sa mga contest na ganyan. We went there for Sam to enjoy the day and the treats and not to compete. I was able to meet some online moms and their kiddos too from GT, SP and from our multiply community. Sam really enjoyed the trick or treat part seeing her pumpkin loot started to fill up with different sweets and goodies. She really enjoyed the company of her ates...Keanna & Jhaz...and I'm really thankful to these girls for taking care of her while mommy was busy taking some snaps. And to Stef who was still lacks a lot of sleep but still managed to join us....sleep ka na mare ha?...hehe :p And to those who didn't make it...I'm really really hoping to see you again guys...soon! :p

Sam meets Sanrio & Friends

Sam's official photo

I wasn't able to bring Sam yesterday morning for the go-see screening of Candy Stripes fashion show. Something more important came up with that I need to prioritize first. I need to meet a balikbayan friend of my mom whom she asked for a favor to hand me her padala. So After the meet-ups, and since we can no longer make it to the screening all the way to paranaque pa, we just attend this event at The Block of SM north. It's the Meet Sanrio and Friends experience that each girl really loves to be part of. Everybody is welcome and can join. You just need to purchase something to accumulate a ticket in exchange for a free face/hand painting, nail salon treat, hair and make-up salon treat, origami and a photo ops. There's a small area where you can buy hello kitty stuff. Of course Sam was really excited and can't decide what she wants me to buy for her. She just picked this little fishing toy and I just got a little hello kitty purse in addition. She really loves all the booth especially the nail and make-up salon!...haha At this young age, they already appreciate these things...haha! hays..kikay talaga! :p

The only downside of theis event was the no-show of the actual Sanrio & Friends mascots. They're just having these huge standees that represents the characters. And mind you guys...they are very strict not to touch them, baka madumihan goodness! Itumba ko pa yan eh...haha! This event I think is only today na lang. Better call the SM Admin if you wish to drop by to treat your kiddos. :p

Santa Baby?

Just want to share these cute pics of Sam. Actually, it's just an experimental shots. I was just trying some of my satin curtains to use as backdrop sana then get some shots if it will look ok. All of a sudden, Sam thought that we'll going to have a shoot again. She immediately grab her santa headband...thinking that it's a christmas shoot maybe because of the red backdrop...then stood in front of me...btw, I still don't have the cam that time yet... then mega pose na sya...haha! She's really waiting for me to get the cam because she's really not moving and posing! I don't want naman to spoil her mood and she really looked pretty in her pose kaya I took some shots na din. Too bad because I wasn't able to get a good setting kaya yan..medyo blurry. Just wearing her usual pambahay...i didn't noticed that her pants was baligtad pala! you can see, nakalabas pa yung tag!..ayayay!...hahaha :p

Sam's new Tag Reading Book from Leap Frog

From the makers of the LeapPad and the Leapster comes a new reading system called the TAG READING SYSTEM. This nifty new electronic reader is contained inside a pen-like device which children hold over books that have been printed on special dot-matrix paper. By tapping on a page of the book, the Tag can read the whole page, a word, a phrase, or respond to images on the page. The Tag reader is six inches long and uses two AAA batteries to run. It houses a computer processor, a stereo audio system, and a small infrared camera on the end of the device. By quickly photographing the dots on a page, the Tag can determine where it is on the page and then read to your child. The Tag reader can hold the audio content of up to five books at a time, and you can interchange which books are in its memory by connecting to the Internet. The Tag Reading System comes with one book: Ozzie and Mack by Trish Holland, but additional books are available also. It's already available here in the Philippines particularly at Toys R Us. Very cheap only...P2999k for the whole kit!...arrrgh!!

At launch, the Tag Reading System has 16 books, two activity boards, and two card sets that work with the Tag reader. Parents can choose which classic and/or activity storybooks they want to add to their child's library by purchasing them and then connecting the Tag to the Internet to download the audio content for free. Choices include such classics as Chicka Chicka Boom Boom, The Little Engine That Could, Olivia, and other kids' favorites. Leapfrog also offers books featuring popular branded characters including Diego, from Go Diego Go, SpongeBob SquarePants, and Kung Fu Panda, with Jack Black's voice featured in the audio. For Sam, I'm eyeing for the Adventures under the Sea, SpongeBob SquarePants, Olivia, Kung Fu Panda: Po's Tasty Training and Sam most hated of all the books... the Dora goes to! Here are the rest of the Tag Library. some of them are already available at our local toy store here in the Philippines. I suggest you go to your nearest Toy R Us store to check these books. They cost P999 a piece. Since it's a bit pricey here, I just made "bilin" to my parents from the states to get these books for Sam. I'm just hoping that they have the time to look for it, you know oldies esp to my dad who doesn't have the patience...hehe :p

The Tag Library! Contains 20 books and it's still growing!

Tag is fascinating to hear and see in action. It's simple for kids to hold it like a pen and tap icons, words, or images to make a book come alive with sound and music. By tapping the "Read the Story" icon, the Tag reads the whole book, while indicating when the child should turn the page. Alternatively, the child can tap the "Read the Page" icon or a specific word. Your child can even drag the pen over a series of words to have a sentence read. Touching illustrations will also provide a rich audio response.

a sample pic from a very satisfied!

But, Tag's greatest feature is that it makes reading fun. With Tag, kids want to touch the words to hear them spoken. The books also contain reading games that focus on vocabulary, phonics, and reading comprehension. And Tag always provides positive feedback so kids feel good about themselves when playing with this electronic reader.
