Cebu Getaway: Enjoy an Exclusive Tour in a Resort Paradise + Buffet Lunch for less Php 750

Image
Summer may be over but that does not stop us from enjoying the sun, sea and the sand. Just a few kilometers away from the Cebu Mactan International Airport presents a paradise with such a beautiful view.  Costabella Tropical Beach Resort provides guests with an inviting yet cozy ambiance. It has a direct access to Mactan's beautiful coastline enabling everyone to enjoy the clear waters and the fine white sand it offers. One thing that we really loved about Costabella Beach Resort is that the surroundings are well maintained and it's clean. We also liked that their lifeguards and staff are very attentive.  Though the place is 4-star resort, it is very affordable. One can enjoy a sumptuous buffet lunch with a lovely rondalla music for only Php 1,100 per person. This already includes resort entrance and the use of beach facilities and swimming pools.  Not to mention they have a Buy 2+1 free promo (ending on 06.30.17) which makes it less than Php 750 per per

Expo Mom #TeamMom Reaches Out to Mommas in the Visayas

Image
We are stronger together. That’s what moms have come to realize when faced with the multitude of issues and concerns that come with motherhood. When a mom has a group of mothers behind her, the business of taking care of the everyday just seems easier. She has an ear that would listen to her worries, a smile that would brighten up her mood, and a hand that would hurry along the accomplishment of important tasks. In celebration of its tenth year anniversary, Expo Mom pays tribute to #TeamMoms all over the country. Expo Mom #TeamMom 2017 kicked off with a three-day event at the Glorietta Activity Center in May. Expo Mom #TeamMom goes on a nationwide roadshow starting off today, June 17, 2017 at Ayala Center Cebu, and then moving on the week after to The District North Point in Negros on June 24, 2017.  Expo Mom #TeamMom will not only bring in the most modern mommy and baby products and services to the Visayas, it will also be a wellspring of parenting trends, mommy solutions, an

Head of the family: Not Just a Provider but a Father

Image
Imagine working in a world where time seems to just past by and where almost everything changes instantly. Think of having to keep up with an environment where it costs a lot to stop or even slow down for a while. Sound taxing, right? What more of prioritizing the welfare of everybody in the household on top of it all.  But every head of the family doesn’t mind about it. Fathers are said to be the pillars of our homes. They work hard to provide for the family.  Some of them go abroad with tears in their eyes because they will be physically separated from their families. However, there is a certain joy in their hearts knowing that they will be able to provide for their loved ones back home. To honor these gallant paternal men and let them feel how extraordinary they are and important their sacrifices are for their families, Father’s Day has been a annual event celebrated worldwide. As we mark again this special occasion on Sunday, June 18, 2017, our applause and recog
