Winners for the Online Quiz was also given their respective prize..Bedalyn Aguas (one of the mommy bloggers) and Aileen Lumbang. After some photo ops with Miss Tintin the program continued with the first guest speaker. Miss Vanessa Garon of Golden Values School and Nazareth Formation House (Bob Garon Rehab Center). Together with the two residents from the Center, they gave us a glimpse of Addiction that can start from early childhood.
Vanessa first talked about Internet Addiction, how it differs from Internet Dependency and how the addiction is diagnosed. What makes her talk more interesting is the fact that one of the resident from the center is an actual case of internet addiction. Most of the moms were teary eyed when the talk ends. I am pretty sure if Tintin allowed us, we would be hugging and extending our love to the resident. We can feel the struggle… the weight of what she was talking about and the implication of it. I believe all the slides that was shown to us deserves another blog post. I am still encoding the slides shown to us.
Even Miss Tintin admits that whenever she hears that story, it never fails to make her cry.. but before we all end up crying a river.. Robbie Rabbit bags were given away to lucky moms.. and yours truly won a very violet bag perfect for my little girl..It was also during this time that me and Joy presented the greeting cards that the mommy bloggers prepared for Tintin and ParenTIN.TV for their 2nd year anniversary.
Miss Vanessa continued about Aggresive behavior. It was defined to us and just the same as Internet Addiction, one of the resident gave us a glimpse on his life having an aggressive behavior. I will also be posting in a separate blog entry the slides that was shown to us. But over the course of the talk, it was very clear to us that we as moms has a very big role on preventing this things to happen. And I am very glad and very thankful to Miss Tintin for inviting us to this talk. The talk was very inspiring. It was also an eye opener to us.
One of the member of Parentin.tv surprised Tintin with a very touching (and entertaining) rendition of Only Hope.
After that, Zonito Torevillas- Tamase talked about Healthier Foods and Alkalinity. She talked about the health risks when the body’s pH goes acidic. She also explored on why our body needs water and the benefits that we can get from drinking enough amount of water every day. Salt was another subject that was discussed and how healing salt can be. Miss Tamase also talked about some foods and what effect it has on the pH level of our body.
Miss Zonito Torevillas- Tamase prepared a fruit shake sweetened and flavored using Malunggay powder. You know by now that I am a Malunggay user that in fact we use the leaves to feed the kids with Malungay rice. It’s one of the best plant out there.. it is a good source of calcium.The Malunggay powder is heaven sent to me.
Tintin then introduced to us to her newest discovery, Smart Steps baby cleaning products. The product line includes Baby Laundry Detergent, mild and safe, no dyes, no bleach and no optical brightness. It also includes Baby Fabric Softener (mild and safe, fresh linen scent and no artificial colorant) and Baby Bottle Cleanser (easy rinse formula, no phosphate and no dyes).
Then we had a tour of the hotel, Richmonde. I believe this hotel is fairly new because when I first heard the venue, I thought it would be in Ortigas.. it was a fun tour, and we squeezed ourselves in the elevator (surprisingly it only took us 2 rides LOL). We got a glimpse of the different rooms offered in Richmonde Hotel as well as their gym. We was supposed to take a look on their poll but it was raining hard.
We had another taste of the food prepared by Chef Bienvendo B. Chavez and as we finish our food, we were asked to take a look under our chair and we found piece of paper with an M or a P. Then we had some photo ops to be uploaded to Parentin.TV website.. some serious, some wacky. Later, the P and the M, we learned, stands for Pillow and Mattress.. we each got a pillow or a mattress to take home! yay! And to end the event, each one of us greeted ParenTIN.Tv for their 2 years of succes and giving inspiration to us moms and parents.. and again, Congratulations Miss Tintin and ParenTIN.tv!!
