I love to hug.
Hugging is one of my ways to express my affection. Hugging makes me feel healthier and happier. It lowers my stress and it is a therapy for me and my son too.
One day I asked my son why he loves to hug me, he answered "Mama Dora... soft" .

LYRICS Saan, saan na napunta
Kislap ng iyong mata
Maibabalik pa ba?

Ngayon ang langit ay bughaw
At sya'y sumasayaw
Ako'y nasisilaw

Sa labas sila'y naglalaro
Hindi makatayo
Sinong sasalo?
Oooh... oooh...

At kung hindi naman sa'yo
Ay wag mong angkinin
Dyan ka magaling
Ngayon ang langit ay bughaw
At sya'y sumasayaw
Nabulag sa araw

Pwede bang sunugin ang tulay
Ayokong sumabay
Sinong papatay
Akoy' naghihintay..... aaay

Sa Nineteen Ninety-five
Nineteen Ninety-five

Pwede bang sunugin ang tulay
Ayokong sumabay
Sinong papatay
Akoy' naghihintay...... aaay

Saan, saan na napunta?

I just attended the Digital Influencers Marketing Summit last September 13,  2014 at SMX Mall of Asia and I could say that it was really a blast! It is also beyond my expectations because I learned a lot!
The reasons why I attended the summit is because of the following:
1. To learn more on Digital Marketing and Social Media and how to become an influencer.

2. To listen to the blogger speakers who are also my friends like Ben Francia and Grace Bondad Nicolas. I've been reading Mommy Jeniffer Lopez-Gana's blog when I became a Mom. She is also a mommy blogger! :)
They talked about Bloggers as Digital Influencers

and of course...
3. To know who would be the winners for the Top 10 Emerging Influential Blogs 2014.

Kinder Zoo Jungle Adventure: a fun and interactive experience with endangered animals

Our family is adventurous. Loves to go on a trip. And because we are animal lovers, one of our favorite activities is going to a zoo. 
Last August 23, 2014, I was invited to a media event to experience the fun at Kinder Zoo. I brought along my family. It is also a unique and adventurous Saturdate for us.
Kinder Zoo Adventure Jungle is a Private Zoological & Theme Park inside the facility of Manila zoo along Adriatico Street corner Quirino Avenue in the City of Manila

The media event is about highlighting two of its famous residents to the media... The Tortoise and the Hyacinth Macaw.

Pocholo "The Voice Master" Gonzales was also there. He gave us a sample of his stints. If you are a kid of the 80's this would make you smile...He is the voice behind "Pong Pagong" and "Kiko Matsing"! Yes BATIBOT! 
We also found out that he is the brand ambassador of Kinder Zoo.

And the highlight of the event, Mr. T! Let me give you a background of Mr.T :
