     Kenzo is so excited to visit KidZania Manila for the second time. This time, he is going to play there with his cousins.

     What can P25 buy you today? With Alagang Cebuana Plus, it can now buy peace of mind. And by making insurance more affordable, Pioneer Insurance and Cebuana Lhuillier are bringing security and peace of mind to more Filipinos, especially to those who cannot afford traditional insurance policies.

     Ideally, an insurance policy is a necessity, especially for those who are continuously exposed to the hazards of living and working in places like Metro Manila. However, the high cost of traditional insurance products has hindered most minimum wage workers from purchasing them. Below are the reasons why Alagang Cebuana Plus is a must!
More Peace of Mind for Filipinos with Alagang Cebuana Plus
  • It is this issue that encouraged Pioneer Insurance and Cebuana Lhuillier to offer micro-insurance to majority of the country’s low-income earners through Alagang Cebuana Plus, a basic form of insurance policy that covers individuals aged seven to 70 years old from accidental death, dismemberment, and disability, and a rider benefit for unprovoked murder and assault for up to P20,000. 
  • The product also extends fire cash assistance of P5,000. Each policy is available for only P25 with a four-month validity period.
  • Developed by Cebuana Lhuillier Insurance Solutions with Pioneer Insurance as underwriter, Alagang Cebuana Plus is changing the insurance landscape by making policies more simple, suitable and affordable for the larger segment of the population. 
  • More importantly, the product provides majority of the minimum wage workers with much-needed security and protection against unforeseen accidents and calamities so they can have peace of mind.
  • Aside from its low cost, insurance claims are also easily made available at any of Cebuana Lhuillier’s close to 2,000 branches nationwide.

As Mickey Mouse travels from chapter to chapter, the music landscape changes too, from Bollywood to pop, Broadway style musical to hip hop and gospel to jazz. It's quite an exciting journey," said Rony Fortich, Musical Director of Hong Kong Disneyland, from the Philippines, who has been bringing magic to guests at Hong Kong Disneyland since 2005.

     Igniting the spirit of Paskong Kai Saya is a Christmas tree standing in the middle of the main square, accented with capiz ornaments, and topped with a classic Filipino parol. It also serves as a festive backdrop for group photos. Misters and misses can even spread the love and share their positive Christmas messages to others by completing the sentence “Ang Pasko ay Kai Saya dahil…” on the message board near the Christmas tree. To commemorate the moment, developed pictures can be purchased at the PikZ station after the session.

     Adding to the merry atmosphere is a vintage ice cream cart from Magnolia, manned by friendly Mamang Sorbetero. Even Zupervisors, all ready to guide Christmas activity participants, sport the traditional Filipino garb of red scarves and distinctly local straw hats.

Tips on How to Maximize Your Kid's Time at KidZania Manila

Saturday, November 21, 2015

     Kenzo really enjoyed his stay at KidZania months ago. If time permits, we will stay there the whole day. There are so many things to do in KidZania, your kid's precious play time will be well spent if you know how to maximize your time during your visit. It's the most visited play city in Manila today, I've heard that you need to book ahead to reserve a slot. I promised Kenzo that we will go back to KidZania with his cousins. But for now, here are the tips to make the most out of your child's KidZania Manila experience.

     Kids looking for an awesome experience that lets them learn while having fun can head to KidZania Manila—the only interactive play city where kids can explore, discover, and learn how the real world works. 

     Built to scale for children, KidZania Manila has more than 70 establishments and features over 100 role-playing activities that kids aged four to 14 years can enjoy. These fun and immersive career activities have been designed to be developmentally appropriate for their age group.

     The play city has a wide range of activities to choose from, you’ll find a handy guide below on how kids can maximize the fun and have the best learning experience at KidZania Manila

Find the best career

     Upon arrival at KidZania Manila, kids are given a boarding pass and check for 50 kidZos. Once inside the play city, they can head over to the Bank to encash their check into KidZos—the official currency in KidZania. Here’s a not-so-secret tip: they can conveniently open a bank account with a minimum deposit of 20 kidZos—just make sure to check the schedule for the opening of accounts at the Bank. After opening an account, kids get their own personalized ATM card that they can use in the ATMs all around the play city.

50 kidZos was given to Kenzo after we encashed the check upon our arrival at KidZania 
     Now, it’s time for them to choose where they want to go. Kids can check each establishment’s Census Plaque to help them determine which activity they can participate in. Reading these plaques is especially helpful because they indicate the age requirement and duration period of the activity, as well as how many visitors can join and whether the activity will require earning or spending kidZos.

     KidZania Manila also has an Employment Office which helps kids determine their preferred immersive activity. Here, visitors find out which jobs are best suited for them, giving them a better idea on which establishments to go to. 

     Once they decide which job to take, kids can easily find the establishment using an app on a mobile phone which they can rent at the ABS-CBN Mobile shop.

Earning kidZos

     Just like in the real world, kids can get a bachelor’s or master’s degree in various fields at the Centro Escolar University. They can sign up for any—or all!—of the four degrees at the University: Humanities and the Arts, Engineering and Architecture, Health Sciences, and Business Administration. This allows them to earn more or pay less kidZos in the professions related to the fields they have studied.

Kenzo wanted to join the activity in all the establishments but we wasn't not able to maximize our time since we arrived an hour later and it's Saturday. 
     Fans and frequent visitors can even become citiZens of KidZania Manila through the B-KidZanian loyalty program. They can apply for their very own PaZZport at the PaZZport Office and earn stamps every time they role-play a career. The more activities kids complete, the more benefits they'll earn and the more fun they'll have on their very next visit. 

Bring home the KidZania experience

     If kids want to bring home a souvenir or two, the National Store is the place to go to. With two locations—one near PikZ station and the other just by the exit—they will surely find toys and collectibles that capture the fun they had at KidZania Manila. The National Store accepts payments in Philippine pesos, a foreign currency in the play city.

     Another important stop for kids and their parents alike is the PikZ Station, where they can get photos of the misters and misses’ unforgettable and precious on-the-job moments at the play city. 

Z-U next time! 

     After a fun and eventful day of “work” and play, kids can make a beeline for the Immigration Office, located between the Mobile Shop and the National Store. This is where security bracelets are removed and guests make their exit.

Our last stop was the city tour bus. We enjoyed our tour before going home. Kenzo also bought something from his hard earned KidZos that day at the souvenir shop
     At KidZania Manila, kids can enjoy a fun learning experience that sparks their imagination, ignites their minds, nurtures creativity, and inspires real-world exploration. And with these tips, children can do even bigger things and make the most out of their role-playing experience. Bring your kids at KidZania, I swear that your trip will be oh so worth it! I'll make another blog post on Kenzo's experience at KidZania soon!:)

Jollibee Peach Mango Sundae: a new twist to my favorite Peach Mango Pie!

Sunday, November 15, 2015

     Why there's always room for dessert? For a sweet tooth like me, there's always plenty of room for desserts! Anything sweet will always have a special place in my tummy! Hahaha! One of my favorite desserts is peach mango pie from Jollibee. I can't count how many times I've eaten this simple but filling item from Jollibee. It's my default order when I don't know what to get when my son craves for Jollibee and I need to bring him there for his snack.

     Nothing is as comforting as the warm sweet filling of mangoes and peaches wrapped in the crispy crust of the Peach Mango Pie or the sweet creamy texture of the classic Vanilla Sundae – both Filipino favorites that have always been part of every langhap-sarap Jollibee experience.
Jollibee Peach Mango Sundae: a new twist to my favorite Peach Mango Pie!
     Since its introduction, the peach mango pie has always been the top choice for Filipinos when it comes to desserts. The Vanilla Sundae, also a favorite among Filipinos, especially kids, has been paired with hot chocolate fudge and strawberry syrup, among others. 

     This time, Jollibee has decided to mix these two well-loved desserts, bringing a whole new flavor for everyone to experience – the Jollibee Peach Mango Sundae. The creamy texture of vanilla sundae topped with bits and pieces of peaches and mangoes brings out flavors that are both nostalgic and fresh.

     The Peach Mango Sundae is the ultimate dessert for Filipinos who can’t have enough of their sweet tooth fix with the peach mango filling and Jollibee’s classic sundae. It is best enjoyed with your favorite Jollibee meal.

     At only P29 each for ala carte and P20 as mini sundae add-on for value meals, the Peach Mango Sundae is now available at your favorite Jollibee store nationwide.
