Press Release: Parents and new generation of MILO drinkers bond over Chocomaltee goodness

Manila, Philippines, January 2015 – For over 50 years, leading beverage brand MILO has been warming the hearts and tummies of children from generations of Filipino families. With every cup brimming with energy-giving nutrients and the classic Chocomaltee flavor that Filipinos love, MILO has become a familiar mainstay in the breakfast table as the favorite drink in the morning for kids and adults alike.


A cup of the rich, chocolate malt drink evokes nostalgia and wonderful childhood memories to those who grew up with the drink. Elena, a mother of a 10-year-old son and 7-year-old daughter, shares how MILO would always help her gain the energy she needed for sports and other activities since she was a child.

“My mom introduced MILO to me. When I was younger, my mom would prepare a hot cup of MILO for me during breakfast, or after school, before I do my homework. Drinking it would make me feel energized and invigorated,” says Elena. “Until now, a warm cup or a cold glass of MILO, full of its Chocomaltee flavor, makes me feel renewed, energized, and ready for the day’s challenges.”

MILO’s distinct Chocomaltee flavor from a combination of malted barley, milk powder, sugar and cocoa, coupled with the goodness of ACTIGEN-E, a unique combination of vitamins and minerals which help to optimize release of sustained energy from food, is what makes is what makes it special. Children love the goodness of the Chocomaltee taste from a glass of MILO that gives them the energy essential in an active lifestyle.   

“Now that I’m a mom, I have passed on my love for MILO to my children. I prepare MILO for them in the morning, and after school. For variety, I also come up with new ways to include MILO in their nutritious, well-balanced meals,” says Elena. “As they grow up, I hope they can also pass on the Chocomaltee goodness of MILO to their own children.”

Bianca Gonzalez launches Paano Ba To?!

Before she surprised us with her destination wedding, celebrity endorser, TV host, magazine editor, columnist, blogger, UN advocate and now, wife, Bianca Gonzalez, added book author to her resumé. I had the opportunity to meet the multi-hyphenated super girl when she recently launched her first book, "Paano Ba 'To? How to Survive Growing Up."


I have always admired how Bianca carried herself on TV and voiced out her opinions. I'm an avid reader of her blog too. This is why I didn't pass up the chance to meet her in person and get my hands on her book. (Thanks to Sky for the invite.) 

I rushed to National Bookstore in Glorietta and it looked like I wasn't the only one excited to meet her as the place was already jam-packed when I got there. Standing room only na lang. 


Bianca arrived dressed like her "doodle-self" on her book cover. 


Bianca said that writing a book was one of her dreams and dedicated this new accomplishment to her mommy Ofel. She talked about how she got the idea of writing the book when her young followers started asking for advice.

Bianca gives out advice based on her personal experiences in life, love, friendship, career, fashion and passion in this new book. Not claiming to know everything, Bianca had the help of experts and celebrity friends like, Anne Curtis, Luis Mazano, Atom Araullo and many more to share pieces of their mind as well. Girls in their tweens and teens may find this book very helpful for them while growing up in this crazy world of ours. I got two copies, one for me and the other for my little sister.

Bianca was so pretty up close and was very sweet when she signed the books.

I can't wait to give this book to my little sister when I see her.
Now you know what you're getting for Christmas, little sis. 

Paano Ba To? How to Survive Growing Up by Bianca Gonzalez is available at all National Bookstore nationwide.  

You can follow the super girl, Bianca Gonzalez on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

P.S. Congratulations on your wedding, B! (Yes! Feeling close na ako.) :)

Brick Adventure at Kinder Zoo Adventure Jungle



Kinder Zoo Adventure Jungle, the 2000-square meter zoo and private facility inside the Manila Zoo has just launched a new attraction last  November 30, 2014. 

Our family of three was there when they opened Brick Adventure. Here they showcased their collection of Lego animal sculptures. Some of them were huge, standing 4-6 feet tall. They sure were a sight to see.




They also had an area for kids to build their own Lego sculptures. Here's the little boy trying his hands on some of them colourful bricks. 


Of course aside from these, Kinder Zoo also has 58 different species of animals. They have seven Hyacinth macaws just like Blu from the movie Rio. 





You can not only look at the animals, you can also interact with them. Some birds are flying freely and a boar was also roaming around the place when we were there. 



The little boy enjoyed playing with Gabbie the baby gibbon.



We had a really great day! I think that this would be a great place to take any kid. 

For more information, you can find Kinder Zoo Adventure Jungle on Facebook and Twitter

Kinder Zoo Adventure Jungle is at Manila Zoo, Adriatico Street, Malate,Manila
