Last Saturday was a busy day for me because I had to attend two important events: (1) my son’s school Christmas production in the morning and (2) the mommy bloggers’ Christmas party in the afternoon. Choosing between the two never crossed my mind because I meant to be present in both affairs, and I was.
The mommy bloggers’ Christmas party was held at Unit 421 of Legend Villas in Mandaluyong. We have to attend this party wearing cowgirl costumes. Yihaa! Armed with my brown checkered blouse, gray vest, cream cowboy hat, and the closest to cowboy boots that I could find, I went there by my lonesome bringing some gifts to my fellow mommies and a pledge of Grendha, Ipanema and Rider gift certificates from ELRO Commercial & Industrial Corporation. Thank you so much, Cel, for these! The mommies were so happy to have won these prizes in our raffle.
There were only 12 of us present, namely: Pehpot, Joy, Michelle, Beds, Lyn, Yami, Nora, Jingke, Jes, Czaroma, Fedhz and me. The first 10 mommy bloggers to arrive received a Body Shop Moringa Milk Body Lotion. I also gave 10 small presents to the first 10 mommy bloggers at Legend Villas. There were lots of sponsors, so prizes were given to lucky moms every 30 minutes.
I received the very first raffle prize that was given away, an active health bag from Unilab.
The other prizes that were raffled off, aside from the three gift certificates from ELRO and the Unilab active health bag, included Ainon products, Johnson’s Baby Powder, Playtex Quick Straw, Maya Hotcake Mix, Walter Double Fiber Wheat Bread and Massage Package for 3 moms courtesy of Mommy Leirs. The grand raffle prize (cooking stove) was given by Ms. Tin-Tin Bersola-Babao, creator and founder of Parentin.tv, the first Philippine online parenting show).
Agnes of Ainon Baby drew the grand prize winner, while Miss Sheryll of Proud Mama dropped by to give us moms some of their products.
We had great food, we played games, we sang, we exchanged gifts, and we goofed around.
All moms went home with a loot bag that contains the following products: Soyami Soya Chips, Walter Double Fiber Wheat Bread, Maya Hotcake Mix, T-shirts and token from Unilab, Ainon Baby products, Proud Mama products (bra extender and kiddie shoe bag) and Johnson’s Baby Powder.
We all had fun! Now, we’re all looking forward to next year’s Christmas party.
