Zoomanity Group Christmas Gift Giving 2014

On December 13, 2014, Zoomanity Group, the leader in theme park & zoo management is inviting everyone to experience and visit once again the only Tiger Safari in the Philippines.

Zoobic Safari is a 50 hectares zoo with different activities; Zip Line, 4D realto, Tiger and Lion encounter, crocodile feeding and a lot more.

New activities are coming too to be launched by the end of 2014 or early 2015 that will surely amaze the youngsters or any young at heart.

For this December 2014, as what Zoomanity Group honcho Robert Laurel Yupangco started, the Christmas gift giving to indigent children will be held in four locations; Zoobic Safari  in Subic, Zambales, Zoocobia in Clark, Pampanga, Residence Inn in Tagaytay & at Paradizoo in Mendez, Cavite.

The event for indigent children is one way to give back the wonderful blessings we received from the previous and current year and since the zoos are mostly for children, this is the time of the year that we like to share the happiest places to the kids who are not that fortunate enough to experience these kind of activities all the time.

A paradise in the south, Paradizoo Theme Farm is a farm for romantic people. a place for family, barkadas, friends and those who loves nature. The Gutierrez family went there to explore and experience a different farm lifestyle."

So, Ruffa suggested that they should hire a personal trainer to help their mother lose weight by working out. Perspiration for inspiration to remove the fat of course. In other words, with so many shots in between, they went to Paradizoo in Mendez, Cavite, not only to have a clean and fresh air but for Annabel to have a chance to exercise in a different way, walking in the farm.

Annabelle and Eddie bond with the grandkids, Richard with Sarah and Ruffa tried to milk the goats in the barn with the friendly and expert tour guide from Paradizoo. Super farm life only at Paradizoo.

One activity too in Paradizoo or more like an advocacy is to give education. During the tour, they learn about the process of making honey and what happens when the honey bees mate.

The handsome Richard and lovely Sarah got their time  alone time together. They ride the cable car at Residence Inn, Tagaytay as they talk about planning their wedding and other future plans.

Paradizoo and Residence Inn are under Zoomanity Group. Paradizoo is a 12 hectares farm while Residence Inn is a 2 hectare theme park with hotel inside overlooking the majestic Taal volcano.

Kalamansi-Vitamin C

Freshly harvested Kalamansi from our garden. My husband showed me how to keep kalamansi fresh and not be easily rotten.

He told me that in Japan if they harvest the Kalamansi they also include a portion of the stem and then try to cut it into a size that is just suitable to fruit when placed in a basket or tray. He told me not to pull off the whole stem because the fruit will have an opening which lose it's freshness.

Young Yasmene Grace P. Arim Is Bonakid Pre-School’s Ready Set Laban Season 2 Winner

When Yasmene Arim decided to take on the challenges in Bonakid Pre-School’s Ready Set Laban Season 2, her mother had very simple but no less relevant words of wisdom for her precocious seven year old daughter: “Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy.”

The dance, swimming and taekwondo aficionado sent in their auditions online and actually became the show’s first guests to make it via online auditions.

Sobrang excited ko (I was so excited),” young Yasmene enthused.

“Pinapainom ko si Yasmene lagi ng gatas at pinapakain ng maraming gulay at fruits. We believe we are strong, we can fight and we can win this competition,” her mother adds.

And they did.

The show is designed to bring out the strength, energy and resilience of children and bring out the Batang May Laban in them by way of traditional Filipino games such as tumbang preso and patintero. The host of Ready Set Laban Season 2 shares how he can describe the show in three words: Ready To Play. “The kids I encountered are so ready to play and face the challenges in the show. It did not feel like I was working. I just had fun and I played a lot with them,” Drew Arellano shares.

For its second season, Bonakid Pre-School Ready Set Laban came back with more exciting challenges and bigger prizes. As for what young Yasmene asked for as a prize? She asked for school bags and supplies for her friends and classmates at school which Bonakid Pre-School Ready Set Laban Season 2 happily provided.

Holiday Health Watch!

This is season our schedules are filled.with christmas parties left and right. Sometimes in a day we have to attend 2 or more just to show them how grateful we are to be invited.

Just a little warning and advise to my friendly caterers, resto and food service out there. Since we know your schedule are busy in preparing food to different parties. just a friendly reminder to please handle the food so that the people who will eat will not get a stomach disorder, diarrhea, food poison and intestinal flu.

Check the food first before you serve or taste it if you are really concern with the people who will eat it.

My reason for blogging this is that my husband was invited to play his sax and flute in a party, not to mention where. Unfortunately I think he ate a contaminated food which leads to intestinal flu. He was bed rest for 3 days feeling groggy, fever, body ache, upset stomach and diarrhea. Since he on vacation until dec 25,  we wasted 3 days of his vacation due to his sickness.

One thing more the talent fee he got was spent to buy medicine, fruits and hydrated water. It was something we regret.

It's also a warning for us to smell the food whenever we attend parties. Again to my friends out there who are into catering. Hope you will be concern with the people.

Happy Holidays to everyone! :-)
