How’s it going, Nuffnangers!

If there’s one thing any girls would drop everything for, it’ll be (of course) shopping! That’s right! Especially that Christmas is just around the corner, who wouldn’t agree to that?

Last Friday, October 17,  we, along with the winners of the Nuffnang X Clothes Buffet Manila blog contest and a few Nuffies experienced a one-of-a-kind shopping experience. A shopping-all-you-can setup housing almost 30,000 fashionable pieces in one floor. Here’s the catch – we were were only given 15 minutes to grab all the clothes and fit everything in a 32 x 23cm ziplock bag! Can you imagine how much pressure we got ourselves into?

After the crazy shopping scene, our very own Nuffnang Talent Yuki Tansengco of mystylecat.com was interviewed about how her shopping experience went by.

Hey there, Nuffnangers!

It was a pasta-rific day last October 14, 2014 as we held La Filipina Premium Pasta’s Love The Pastabilities blogger event at Black Olive Cerveceria to showcase to some of our food and mommy bloggers the “endless pastabilities” that each and every variant of La Filipina Premium Pasta has to offer. It was a day bursting with fun and festivity as the bloggers were enthused to unleash their inner artistry as they were taught the tricks of the trade of pasta food styling and food photography.

DSC01254#lovethepastabilities and #morepastabilitiestoenjoy were the official hashtags for the event

As soon as the bloggers arrived, they were asked to answer the contest question via Twitter “What is your favorite pasta dish and why?”. The winner of the twitter contest gets to take home a prize from La Filipina Premium Pasta!

DSC01204 Hmmm.. what could mommy Peachy Adarne’s favorite pasta be?

To get everybody in the mood, the bloggers played an ice breaker game to psyche and pump them up for all the exciting activities ahead of them. Our food and mommy bloggers played a best of 3 rounds of Heads Up– a guessing game using a tablet.

DSC01206Host Dianne and Nuffie Monika demonstrating the game

To make everything more fun and challenging, we decided to add a twist in the game and that is to make all the words and categories related to… Pasta! Now the bloggers and the audience got even more excited to play the game.

DSC01228 And so it begins!

DSC01239What competitive bloggers we have here!

DSC01266  Jill Bantang of thefoodscout.net still exuding grace under pressure

DSC01279Phew—That was a tricky one!

Once everyone was energized with the ice breaker game, we proceeded with the event’s main highlight—the Food Styling and Food Photography workshop by Ms. Josephine Pineda, renowned marketing and creative consultant and food stylist/photographer.

DSC01512Shells to spice up your pasta? Why not!

DSC01556Look at all these delectable creations! Good job, bloggers!

There was also an Instagram contest to showcase the photography skills that our bloggers acquired from the Food Photography workshop. The winner for this one gets to take home another special prize from La Filipina Premium Pasta.

DSC01570Awesome use of props, Berylle!

While the bloggers enjoy the scrumptious meal prepared by La Filipina Premium Pasta and Black Olive Cerveceria, Ms. Rosanna De Dios from the La Filipina Pasta Marketing Team gave a talk on how the Endless Pastabilities can be maximized using La Filipina Premium Pasta.

Currently, La Filipina Premium Pasta has three available variants: The La Filipina Spaghetti, La Filipina Elbow Macaroni, and La Filipina Penne. These three variants are already such household favorites but guess what? La Filipina Premium Pasta will also be releasing their special shapes very, very soon. Exciting, right? Now that’s definitely something we should all watch out for.

The contest winners were shortly announced, right after the bloggers filled their tummies.  For the Twitter contest, Jane Chua won. The Foodstagram photography contest was awarded to Rina Zamora of thepickiesteater.com. The Food Styling Contest had 3 lucky winners; Jane Chua of janedchua.com, Rina Zamora of thepickiesteater.com, and Gerry San Miguel of dude4food.blogspot.com.

We all have that one moment when we want to try some new food adventures to satisfy our cravings aside from the usual “home” servings. Plus, we never forget to save that moment by taking photos and sharing it on our social media accounts.

Last October 11 & 12, 2014, Best Food Forward, in its 4th installment, held the country’s biggest benefit food fair in the metro and we were very lucky to be a part this year. Not only that our cravings were satisfied, but it also fulfilled one of our possible ways to give back.

Take a look of our latest gastronomic experience yet:

20141011_122733

Best Food Forward housed a wide selection of food discoveries to thousands of “foodies” for two days. Tummies were definitely loaded by food concessionaires ranging from scrumptious grilled meats to mouth-watering desserts, and even healthy and organic munchies.

@Bigdogskitchen was one of the bestsellers and “food of the fair” during the event. Imagine, they were already sold-out as early as 5:00 PM on the first day, and 3:00 PM on the second day! Our favorite was their famous “The Cubano”. What’s yours? To Big Dog’s Kitchen: You guys better make some more in the next food fair! *wink

Yuki's Pick

Nuffnang Talent @YukiTansengco made her way as well and took home some of her yummy finds from @thebekiry, @captaincakes and @thenectarlabph.

Everyone definitely had a blast trying out new and exciting foods. It was an event definitely worth looking forward to every year and a perfect reason to declare cheat day!

“The life of a mother is the life of a child:
 You are two blossoms on a single branch”

A special milestone in a mother’s life that changes her forever is the momentous occasion of having a baby for the first time. It is an exciting, blissful, and oftentimes nerve-wracking experience that introduces them to a wonderful new world that is Motherhood.

Being a first time mom can be such a thrill and delight but it sure is no easy-peasy mission to accomplish. A huge amount of preparation is essential for mothers who want nothing but the best for their little ones. Books, friends, relatives, and even Google can be of big help but first time mothers know that each and every single day with their babies is a learning adventure. As a mother, the surprises never seem to end and there is always so much more to learn, especially about the art of caring for your precious ones.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAPhoto courtesy of ricaperalejo.ph

Enter Johnson’s and Johnson’s Baby— the country’s most trusted and iconic brand when it comes to nurturing baby’s needs. They understand that moms have lots of questions about how to care for their babies such as “Paano siya papaliguan?” or “Paano tatanggalin ang cord ng baby?” or even, “Okay lang ba siyang i-massage?” First time moms are often faced with these kinds of questions causing them feel worried and anxious— but not anymore! Johnson’s Baby, together with the Integrated Midwives Association of the Philippines [IMAP] helped in answering all these mommy queries, particularly those that are related to skin care by visiting the homes of selected mommy bloggers where they were taught baby skin care rituals that aid in baby’s healthy development. Adorable, right?

Pants up, Nuffnangers!!

As time goes by, when your baby becomes more active – crawling, standing, walking, playing – the entire diaper-changing experience changes and becomes an unpleasant experience.
