Jollibee Family Bee Day at Nuvali

Jollibee held its grandest picnic at the Nuvali football grounds in Sta Rosa, Laguna earlier today. “We are very excited to mount an event of this magnitude that celebrates the Filipinos’ love for bonding over good food. We are very happy with the turnout and pleased to see everyone enjoying the company of other people whom they treat like family. Talagang dito sa Jollibee, ang sarap maging pamilya,” said Jollibee vice-president for Marketing Harvey Ong.

Local stilt walkers and jugglers paraded around the Nuvali grounds to entertain. Families posed and had their pictures taken by the giant picnic basket and oversized photo frame walls. There were also photo opportunities with celebrities like Regine Tolentino, who came with her family to join in the picnic at Nuvali grounds.

The kids had a grand time playing at the inflatable slide and basketball shootout, not to mention the overflowing Jollibee treats.

Jollibee raffled off exciting prizes much to the delight of the audience.

There were exciting dance performances from Jollibee and friends, plus Jollibee Kids Club members.
Moonstar88's live band performance was awesome! Marian Rivera and Erik Santos top-billed the list of performers who entertained the Nuvali crowd.

Similar Family Bee Day celebrations were held at the Quirino Grandstand in Metro Manila, Bayanihan Park in Pampanga, Plaza Independencia in Cebu and Crocodile Park in Davao as well.

This grandest picnic in five venues nationwide provided a good venue for families to commemorate Mother's Day. The moms were handed out white balloons at the end of the event.

Thank you, Jollibee for a wonderful afternoon!

A Sweet Mother's Day Surprise from NIDO FORTIFIED “Wear Your Love”

Anchored on NIDO FORTIFIED’s “Wear Your Love” Mother’s Day initiative, dads and kids worked together to orchestrate a relaxing and exciting surprise to make the advance celebration of the World’s #1Moms Day extra special last May 3.
My surprise Mother’s Day treat, along with the other mommy blogger invitees, started with an early lunch at Blue Water Day Spa Ortigas branch courtesy of NIDO. The kids were taken cared of so that mommies can enjoy their pampering treats---a foot massage with reflexology coupled with a back massage.

I really need one and so I was grateful that they made arrangements for the kids. I watched "Friends with Kids" in their spa theater without interruption, amazing right?

As the pampering came to an end, I asked where my daughter was.  I was told that the kids are in another place and we moms have to wear  blindfolds on our way there.  Though baffled,  I decided to go along with it.  My sudden feeling of wonder came with excitement just thinking about what awaits us at the next venue.

After a few minutes, we alighted the shuttle and then we were told to remove our blindfolds at count of 3.
I was standing infront of my child, who was holding a yellow rose for me! Kids and even husbands of mommy bloggers filled Uncle Cheffy's Greenhills Promenade branch. Everyone there greeted us with a Happy Mother's Day. There was a confetti shower as our kids handed out the roses!

Best of all, #1 Moms got customized shirts which is part of NIDO FORTIFIED “Wear Your Love” Mother’s Day initiative. The said shirts will be placed in NIDO FORTIFIED-inspired cans and will be delivered to moms as surprise packages during Mother’s Day week. A hefty feast was served to cap off this creative tribute to moms.

“Mother’s Day is a great way to make wives and mothers feel how much they are loved and appreciated by her friends and family,” said Denise Chua, Nestle Philippines Consumer Marketing Manager. “Beyond simply being unexpected, surprising a loved one has a long-lasting impact that leads to tighter emotional bonds with her whole family.”
The NIDO FORTIFIED “Wear Your Love” Mother’s Day initiative successfully encouraged thousands of kids to declare their heart-warming messages for their mothers through customized shirts. Kids answered the question “What makes your mom #1?” at with the help of dads and other family members. The 2000 entries were immortalized in NIDO #1Mom shirts that were delivered to intended moms this Mother's Day week.

Thank you to  NIDO FORTIFIED for making me feel so much loved!
