“I Love My Family!” is ParenTIN.tv’s Valentine event, which was held at The Podium Mall last Sunday, February 6, 2011. I was there, together with other mommy bloggers and members of ParenTIN.tv. ParenTIN.tv is the first Philippine online parenting show created and hosted by Ms. Tin-Tin Bersola-Babao. For this Valentine event, the show was hosted by Ms. Rosell Velasco-Taberna.
The first guest speaker, Ms. Maribel Dionisio, talked about the emotional needs of men and women. Willard Harley, Jr., a marriage expert, identified five emotional needs of men and women in his book His Needs and Her Needs. According to Ms. Dionisio, fulfilling these needs is crucial in maintaining a healthy and happy married life. Men’s emotional needs are attractive spouse, recreational companionship, admiration, domestic support, and sexual fulfilment. Women’s emotional needs, on the other hand, include family commitment, financial stability, affection, conversation, and honesty and openness.
The next guest speaker was Dr. Arvin Faundo of CordLife Philippines. He talked about stem cell research and the importance of cord blood banking.
Then, marriage consultants Tibbs and Vangie Evalle talked about the Five Love Languages according to Gary Chapman. These five love languages are (1) Words of Affirmation, (2) Quality time, (3) Receiving gifts, (4) Acts of Service, and (5) Physical Touch. According to Tibbs and Vangie Evalle, we must be willing to know our spouse’s love language if we are to be effective communicators of love.
Finally, Crystal Henares, Dr. Vicki Belo’s daughter and General Manager of Belo Essentials was there to discuss how to properly care for the skin with the help of Belo Essentials’ skin products for both men and women.
Here are the intermission numbers during the show:
Earlier in the show, three mommies were chosen to receive a beauty makeover worth Php5,000 each based on the letter that their husbands sent to ParenTIN.tv. They went to David’s Salon first for manicure, pedicure, hair styling/color, then to Bayo to select clothes that match their new look, and they were given Belo Essentials gift packs for more pampering.
We enjoyed the show, the chitchat with mommy bloggers, and of course, the photo opps!
We’re all looking forward to the next ParenTIN.tv event!
