Reaction to Jollibee’s Mother’s Day Commercial #Jollibee

I can still remember nung bata pa ako na hinihintay ko buwan-buwan yung pag-uwe ni “mame” sa Lucena (Quezon Province). Laking lola kami ni kuya kasi nagtatrabaho sina mame sa Maynila, hindi naman kami maisama agad doon kasi wala naman titingin sa amin o maghahatid papasok sa school. Every end of the month or first week ng month, umuuwe sina dade at mame sa probinsya para bisitahin kami ni kuya, mag-iwan sa mga lola ng panggastos, saka magbigay sa amin ng pangbaon sa school. Two days lang sila palage, tapos aalis na. Tapos, malungkot na ulit…wala na ulit akong kasamang mommy sa loob ng isang buwan. Magbibilang na naman ng maraming araw hanggang makabalik sila.

 

Ang bilis ng panahon, ngayon, ako na yung nanay. May dalwang chikitings na ako na naghihintay sa akin sa pag-uwe galing sa trabaho. Sila naman yung naka-abang ngayon at naiinip sa paghihintay sa ‘kin. Minsan, sasabihan pa ako na ‘wag na akong umalis, ‘wag nang magtrabaho. Kung pwede lang sana… hehe.

Be Thankful to Your Mom

Moms are the BEST among the creations of God. She’s a superwoman.

I did not mind much about her existence until I became an adult, until I became a mom too. My mom is a woman like no other. She gave me life, nurtured me, held me, taught me, dressed me, fought for me, but most importantly, she loved me unconditionally. She’s not rich but we’ve never had food in our mouth, clothes to wear and shoes on our feet. My siblings and I are really blessed and thankful for her. There are not enough words I can say to describe just how important my mother is to me, and what a powerful influence she continues  to be.

We often take for granted the very things that most deserve our gratitude. Let’s at least make our moms feel how thankful we are to have her on Mother’s Day. Treat her out for a dinner, watch a movie together, surprise her with a gift or give her a card/letter and express your thoughts and love for her.

Happy Mother’s Day to your mom!

AN OPEN (SHORT) LETTER FOR MY MOM:

I LOVE YOU, MOMMY!

The Gift of Healthy ‘Crowning Glory’ Fit for the Queen this Mother’s Day

CLICHE it may be, but there’s indeed a woman behind the person we are today. And that’s no less than her—our mother. We used to call her nanayinay‘naymama, mommy or simply mom. Needless to say, she deserves more than that given the pivotal role she fulfills in rearing us from childhood to adulthood and possibly for the rest of our lives.

Motherhood is a tough 24-hour job, no pay, no day off, sometimes it is unappreciated, but yet resignation is impossible. A mother is a woman created by God to bring love, joy, happiness and care to this world, to every families. I am so glad God has created a woman to be a mother, even though motherhood is a full time job, a mother’s work is never done.

There may be opposing beliefs whether that greater maternal instinct is biologically predetermined or socially imposed, but everyone would agree that a mother is hardwired to love and care about the whole family, especially the children, all the time. For better or worse, it’s always the welfare of everyone at home on top of her priority. No wonder she’s an epitome of a doting human being that touches everybody’s life. So, it’s but right to honor and return all the favors she has done for us. And what a better way to do this than this Mother’s Day.

5 Tips on How to Make Your Moms Feel Special and Loved on Mother’s Day

Who needs super heroes when I have MOM?

Mother’s Day is a time for people to thank their moms for their never-ending sacrifices for the family. After all, they assume different roles round-the-clock just to make our lives comfortable – a chef to prepare our meals every day, a doctor to tend to us when we are sick, a teacher to help us with school work and life problems, a CEO of the household, our protector to make sure we are always safe, and so many more!

In celebration of Mother’s Day, Solane, the leading provider of LPG solutions, reminds everyone to show their love and appreciation to the woman who ceaselessly devotes herself to the family. This occasion is another moment that falls in perfectly with Solane’s Dapat Lang campaign, a program that emphasizes the importance of doing the right thing, for the family, for others and society as a whole.

Then, surprise mom with a refreshing hair makeover at Menage Salon, and a manicure and pedicure session at Nail-a-holics, both conveniently located at 4/F Gateway Mall. With her fresh haircut and newly-done nails, your mom will surely look younger and more radiant.

Of course, the pampering is not complete without a beauty makeover. Let your mom enjoy a rejuvenating facial and other skincare services at Dermcare Luxe; or have her experience body waxing treatments at Lay Bare, also located at 4/F Gateway Mall.

Shoppers at New Farmers Plaza, meanwhile, can add to mom’s delight by giving her a rose they can get for free with every P300 receipt!
