Henry's Mom Reviews: BeautyMNL.com

As a working mom who goes on duty every 3 days (with a 24-hour shift), it's hard to find time to go to the mall and shop. That's why when the BeautyMNL contacted me to test drive their site, I was really excited. I have to be honest that I have been frequenting this site for quite awhile now and it’s very easy to use. Just sign up, and then you’re good to go.

They have a great selection. BeautyMNL carries most of our trusted well-known brands as well as those new and promising ones. 

Once you've picked out the items that you want, you can choose to pay via credit card, Paypal, bank deposit or COD.

I placed my order on Novemeber 1st, a holiday. They promised to deliver my goods within 3-5 working days. Impressively, my order immediately arrived the next day. My order came in a sealed zip lock container. 

Here are the items that I got from them. 

BeautyMNL is not just an online shop, it's a beauty website. My favorite part of their site is the Bloom section. Here you can read about their tops reviews, make up tutorials and skin care. 

I would recommend this site to those who love online shopping due to their wide range of selection and very simple process.

For all of you who likes taking selfies, they have a #selfieMBL contest. Here you can get a chance to win a Prinster polaroid of your pretty face and a Php 200 BeautyMNL GC. Click here for the complete details.

Press Release: Ballet Manila Stages Severino Reyes’ “Tatlong Kuwento ni Lola Basyang”

Did you know that Lola Basyang is male?

Lola Basyang was the pen name of writer Severino Reyes, the genius behind the enchanting stories that has been adapted to books, comics, television and films.

Here are other amazing Lola Basyang facts:

The writer was 75 years old when he wrote the first Lola Basyang story entitled "Ang Plautin ni Periking", about a kindhearted boy with a magical flute and flying carpet.

He was known as "Don Pinoy" but for his magical tales he adopted the character of Lola Basyang, an old woman well-loved by her grandchildren because she regaled them with magical stories about kings, queens, dragons and other incredible creatures.

Lola Basyang's character was closely similar to Mother Goose the imaginary author of fairy tales and nursery rhymes. The name was inspired by a woman named Gervacia Guzman De Zamora who was known as "Tandang Basyang".

The stories were published in a special section in Liwayway the oldest Tagalog magazine in the country. The publication began in 1922 and included serialized novels, short stories, poetry, comics, essays, news features, entertainment news and articles, and many others.

Writer Severino Reyes is considered one of the giants of Philippine Literature. Aside from Lola Basyang his most famous play was 'Walang Sugat" a Tagalog zarzeula about the brave Katipuneros during the Spanish occupation.

On August 21, Ballet Manila opens its 20th performance season Tatlong Kuwento ni Lola Basyang,” three captivating dance productions of love, fantasy and adventure.

Ballet Manila will bring back the storybook magic of “Ang Prinsipe ng Mga Ibon,” “Ang Kapatid ng Tatlong Marya” and "Ang Mahiwagang Biyulin”, first staged in 2008.

Choreographed by Osias Barroso set to the melodies of national artists for music as arranged by Mon Faustino, “Ang Prinsipe ng Mga Ibon” is about a princess who falls madly in love with a bird prince. Their love is put to a test when her furious father expresses disapproval over their unusual relationship.

Ballet Manila Chief Executive Officer and Artistic Director Lisa Macuja-Elizalde choregraphed “Ang Kapatid ng Tatlong Marya”. Set to the music of Joey Ayala, it tells the story a boy in search of his sisters who were captured by a beast, as a punishment for their father's greedy streak. The boy strives to fulfill their father's dying wish by coming face to face with the monster that took his sisters.

“Ang Mahiwagang Biyulin.” was choreographed by the late Tony Fabella with music by Ryan Cayabyab. The tale is about a poor worker who was given a violin when he helped an old lady. The enchanting rhythm of the strings sends listeners in a trance bringing about an unusual change in behavior.

The dance production goes onstage at Aliw Theater on August 21, 22, 28, and 29, at 8:00 p.m., and on August 23 and 30 at 3:00 p.m.

The show is co-presented by Manila Broadcasting Company, Anvil Publishing, Aliw Theater and Star City. Other sponsors are ACS Manufacturing, First United Travel, Papa John’s Pizza, Manang’s Chicken, Empire Salon, Slimmer’s World, Island Rose, and whatshappening.com.ph.
Tickets are available at Ticketworld outlets, www.ticketworld.com.ph, or call 891 9999 and the Ballet Manila marketing hotline at 552 7502.

Henry's Mom Reviews: Momma Don't You Worry By Louie Lawent

Momma Don't You Worry is a beautifully illustrated book written by Louie Lawent. It's about a 6-year old boy who thinks he's already too cool to still be holding his momma's hand. He even told his mom that there's no need to fear. Then one day, at the mall, he wandered off and found himself lost. Eventually the little boy found his mom. It's a good thing that his momma taught him what to do when he gets lost.

What I love about this book was it was very easy and fun to read. I even asked Henry to read it to me. I asked him if he learned something from the story and he answered me with this, "Never leave your side at the mall." The moral lesson is very easy to understand since it was written in the perspective of a 6-year old boy. After reading this book, I've used it as reference whenever I go out with the little boy. I definitely recommend this book for parents with small children. 

Momma Don't You Worry is currently available at Amazon and Barnes and Nobbles
