MBP Halloween Party 2019 at McDonald's

Just when you thought that McDonald's is just a place where you can celebrate birthday parties or christening, which is the usual thing for us, well you got it wrong. Because with McDonald's you can celebrate anything.



Mommy Blogger Philippines together with Ronald and the Gang held a Halloween Party for tour kids to celebrate, it was a "spooktacular" day filled with fun and surprises as fellow mommy bloggers and our kids enjoyed different games and experienced different tricks and treats prepared by and made exciting by the host from McDonald's. This experience had me thinking of celebrating my daughter's birthday at McDonald's and have a #McDoParty.






The entire party a blast with all the kids dressed in their best Halloween Costumes while they were joined by Grimace and Birdie which made the kids and kids-at-heart smile and laugh.



No one went home empty-handed as everyone received treats and giveaways for participating in different games and from other s…

Potatoes USA Cooking Workshop + My Shrimp and Bacon Balls Recipe using U.S. Dehydrated Potato Flakes

Potatoes play a big part in the diet of Pinoys. We use them in a lot of our ulam (viands), we enjoy them for snacks like chips and fries, and they are often our preferred side dish like mashed potato.

They are so versatile, and may I add, very nutritious, too!They are packed with vitamins and minerals like Vitamin C, Vitamin B6, potassium, complex carbohydrates, fiber and calcium among others. My daughter who is now in grade school benefits from all the nutritious goodness in potatoes.They are a constant in my pantry because they are very affordable. A win-win!

So, I said yes right away when I was invited to the Potatoes USA Cooking Workshop. It was held last October 25 at the Magsaysay Institute of Culinary Arts in Mandaluyong City.

Halloween is the season of a lot of things from horror movies, play dress up, to sugary candies.

Sarah G.’s Secret to Decades of Success: Explore and Discover

The singer-actress has been in the industry for almost two decades now.
William Shakespeare once said, “some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon ‘em.” This is something that no doubt applies to Sarah Geronimo, the multi-hyphenated star who is inarguably still one of the brightest personalities in the entertainment industry even after almost two decades of being a part of it.

Some would say that Sarah was meant to rule the stage since she was young, but there was a lot of hard work invested in her career as well—something she had shown since childhood. She won the grand prize for the IBC television singing contest Star for a Night at the tender age of 14 and had been unstoppable ever since. Her rise was fast but expected. She broke through the top with new hits and soulful revivals, as well as albums that turned her presence into a form of pop culture on its own.

But while her fast rise is something for the books, there’s something more amazing …
