Just Treats, No Tricks as Mommy Bloggers Philippines Celebrates Halloween 2019

This is our first time attending Mommy Bloggers Philippines Halloween Party and IT was pretty awesome! 


I've been a member of this mommy group online for fellow mom bloggers residing in the Philippines and is headed by Mommy Lani Lyutz. I was able to attend their Christmas Party too and I must say their parties are really fun-filled and loaded with lots of game prizes and giveaway. That may be the reason why I'm really itching to be included in this year's MBP Halloween Party, and glad that I made it!

#McDoParty was a blast, but kids these days don't seem to run out of energy ae? So perfect to be in the full batt mode to play at KidZanila Manila.


Chloe was finally able to get an atm to keep all her "sahod" daw in a safe place. I really like Kidzania for this shows a glimpse of what their future might bring. Thou kinakabahan na ako sa work choices ng kids ko :P 


 
As for Chloe she really likes to be a firefighter!!! I actually told her to get jobs na may big "sahod" para makaipon sya ng bongga, but she really lined up for the Fire Department for almost 2 hours. Sana for playtime lang at napaka nerbyosa ko in real life, di ko ata kakayanin na may Pulis, or Bumbero in my family.

Yas! this was once my source of income and hope that it still is, kaya order na kayo ah!!!! Well, a Momma like me need to make raket too, to help daddyO lalo na these days na ang mamahal na ng bilihin and ang mga bills mapapaOMG! ka na lang!!!


For Cupcakes, Cookies, and Cake Orders, Please message me at Sweet Treats by: Aci Girl on facebook.

I'm okay being a work-at-home momma, at least na-momonitor ko ang mga kids, ang bahay, at ang aming buhay-buhay and buti nga nakakasingit ako ng raket for my cakes and cupcakes.

For Cupcakes, Cookies, and Cake Orders, Please message me at Sweet Treats by: Aci Girl on facebook.

But heck, I ain't no superwoman. Ang hirap din i-joggle ang lahat lalo na if sabay-sabay ka nilang kailangan. Like for example, pagbayad ng bills, pagbili nang groceries, also, school supplies for my kids assignments, at pag-stock ng ingredients and other stuff for my online bakery.

For Cupcakes, Cookies, and Cake Orders, Please message me at Sweet Treats by: Aci Girl on facebook.

All these, keri na ng powers ko! I can order online, or shop with ease and go cashless, yes, takot kasi talaga ako humawak ng pera :P Kaya super thankful to Gcash for making it possible!



Buti na lang din that most of my suppliers and even clients are into Gcash na. Kaya there's no need for me to go through banks, or any other money transfer establishment just to pay for supplies or for me to received payments for my work.


It was so easy to use. I simply linked my bank account to the GCash app to cash in. Every time I get a billing, I transfer funds from my bank to GCash. I then go to Send Money then tap the Send Money to Bank Account. I simply keyed in the amount I needed to pay and pressed send. My suppliers promptly receive my payment every transaction. It’s so easy, convenient and time-saving that I am able to better shuffle my tasks and mafeel pa-minsan that I am a supermom! I take care of my children, give them sufficient time and attention, and also pursue grow my business. It’s an app I simply can’t do without! I have never felt so free from the hassles of doing over-the-counter bank transfers.

What's New at Robinsons Galleria + Tiger Sugar Kiosk Opens!!!

Wednesday, October 23, 2019 3 Comments

Robinsons Galleria or much known now as Robinsons Galleria Ortigas is the flagship mall of Robinsons Land Corporation. I actually thought Robinsons Pioneer or Robinsons Manila was the very first. I'm wrong, yikes! Robinsons Galleria officially opened in the year 1990.


Fast forward to 2 decades, Robinsons Galleria Ortigas is still standing strong. Today, I've noticed some renovations inside Robinsons Galleria Ortigas. Also, they are revamping some of the interiors + adding more shops and restaurants. Truly, this mall is going with the flow, making sure to give their mall-goers a pleasurable malling experience. 


I'm also loving the "Veranda" section of the Robinsons Galleria Ortigas, also their food court area where everything is super nice, from chairs and table and the lightings and most especially the tons of food selection there is. (sayang lang I wasn't able to take a good photo, daming diners :) If you were able to follow their facebook page, week after week there's a new shop or kiosk or resto that is about to open.

The latest addition was the most raved Milktea brand in the metro. Tiger Sugar.  The hype for this Milktea brand that originated from Taiwan is still on and I am pretty happy that finally, they have a branch at Robinsons Galleria Ortigas. 

What's New with Robinsons Galleria + Tiger Sugar Kiosk Opens!!!!!!



I was able to witness the Store Blessing and Ribbon-cutting Ceremony + Lion Dance too! 



Thankfully, the line is bearable and the Tiger Sugar Philippines staff was able to attend quickly to their customers. We were able to get to taste 3 of Tiger Sugar's Best Sellers and New Flavors


Tiger Sugar Brown Sugar Boba Chocolate with Cream

Tiger Sugar Brown Sugar Boba Milk

What's New with Robinsons Galleria + May Tiger Sugar Kiosk Na!!!

Loyal talaga ako sa mga flavors na bet ko. The Boba Milk is my super favorite. Pero the newest Tiger Sugar flavors is a must try too! Lalo na the one with Hersheys chocolate and Whipped Cream! Mesherep! 


That's me with fellow bloggers enjoying our Tiger Sugar cups at Robinsons Galleria Ortigas!


The Next time you're at Ortigas, 
Make sure to drop by, go shop or dine at Robinsons Galleria Ortigas!

How to be Kuto-Free with Licealiz? #KilusangKontraKutoYear4

Wednesday, October 23, 2019 2 Comments
Kuto is more than just a kati ng ulo... it is major worry not just for someone who's infested by it, but also for the people who are close with them. If you've been an avid reader of my blog, you'll know more things about kuto, for I super hate having it noong bata pa ako, and now with my kids. Also, I'm pretty sure most of us have experienced it. Minsan kahit anong ingat mo magugulantang ka na lang na your kid got it na pala from school. Buti na lang talaga may shampoo na for this! And it's called LiceAliz.

How to be Kuto-Free with Licealiz? #KilusangKontraKutoYear4


Licealiz Head Lice Treatment Shampoo's goal to a kuto free country is still on and is now actually in its 4th year. The Kilusang Kontra Kuto is a yearly nationwide shampooing activity to fight against head lice infestation or pediculosis and eliminate the social stigma associated with it. Mommy Bloggers Philippines supports this movement for the past years too.

In partnership with the Department of Education (DepEd), Lamoiyan Corporation is visiting 30 schools nationwide and targets to shampoo around 6,000 head lice infested students. Sample sachet products will also be distributed within the surrounding communities through this activity. + A very informative talks facilitated by experts explaining all things about kuto, like its life cycle, myths, and facts, do's and dont's. Contrary to popular belief, the persistent ailment does not only affect children or people who do not practice good hygiene. Through this year’s campaign, Lamoiyan Corporation aims to emphasize that pediculosis can happen to any people regardless of hair length, gender, age, and even social class.4

“For the past years, Lamoiyan was able to raise awareness and debunk misconceptions surrounding pediculosis by spreading the correct information. Head lice infestation can occur to anyone and, hopefully, people would start helping affected individuals rather than discriminating because it is a concern that has a solution,” shared Lamoiyan Corporation Marketing Director Ruby Rose Cavestany.

Lamoiyan Corporation’s Licealiz Head Lice Treatment Shampoo initiated in 2016 the Kilusang Kontra Kuto, a coalition that has been battling head lice infestation nationwide for a kuto-free Philippines.

PHILAM LIFE: Transforming Lives, Digitally!

Tuesday, October 22, 2019 1 Comments
PHILAM LIFE: Transforming Lives, Digitally!

True to its thrust of making customers central to the business, Philam Life, the country’s premier life insurance company, began its transformation journey in 2013, developing digital innovations to serve its customers better. 

The process of buying insurance has always been perceived as difficult and tedious. While the product itself is desirable and necessary, most potential customers are turned off by the hard sell approach of persistent insurance agents, the mound of paperwork involved, and the countless meetups necessary to avail of an insurance policy. Much has changed in the last couple of years, including the evolution of the entire experience to simplify the process for the customer.  

PHILAM LIFE: TRANSFORMING LIVES, DIGITALLY!

With customer-centricity at the core of its design, Philam Life’s website serves as the entry point to learn about the company’s different product offerings. Easy to navigate, intuitive, and comprehensive, this platform makes learning about insurance uncomplicated by using simple language to present intimidating insurance concepts and terms. Understanding the different products and features becomes painless, as they are highlighted via product categories, through relatable key moments in the customer’s life. A self-help financial calculator is also readily available, empowering customers to quickly assess their needs, and effectively capturing the interest by leading them to submit their contact details.



Customers who signify interest in policy and meet up with Financial Advisors are introduced to Philam Life’s iPoS, an acronym for the interactive point of sale system that helps them facilitate the selling process. This state-of-the-art iPad-based digital platform is the only fully functional digital end to end selling tool in the local life insurance industry. It makes the buying process seamless and convenient for both the customer and Financial Advisor by collecting the necessary information needed to generate a policy proposal instantly and close the sale immediately. 

iPoS puts the customers’ needs at the center of the buying process by ensuring that the product being sold is based on a careful assessment of their financial goals and priorities, as well as their risk profile. Getting an insurance policy then becomes a more meaningful conversation on financial goals where the customer comes out with the clarity of purpose, as opposed to a crash course of insurance terms and processes. Once a proposal has been generated, and the customer has signified confirmation to purchase, he can just sign off directly on the iPad, pay via credit card or arrange through auto-debit, and he will receive the e-receipt and e-contract immediately via email. 


The relationship between Financial Advisor and the customer continues even after the purchase of the policy, with iServe, Philam Life’s digital customer service platform that enables its 8,000 Financial Advisors to perform various functions that would normally necessitate going to the Customer Service Centers (CSC). iServe enables Financial Advisors to be self-sufficient in servicing the needs of customers, cutting down waiting time and reducing the need to go to the CSCs by allowing them to perform various transactions such as to receive payments (including through credit card), submission of requests, changes in details, and process claims, among others.


For the more self-sufficient and independent customers who want to access their details and perform transactions by themselves (such as view policy details, view billing notices and other relevant notices, view the value of their investments, manage portfolio, request for assistance and update their contact information), another online portal, ePlan, is made available 24/7 anytime, anywhere. 


“We have designed our digital roadmap with the customer journey in mind. By putting ourselves in our customers’ shoes, we were able to understand their pain points and we developed our digital tools to address their concerns,” said Gigi Pio de Roda, Philam Life’s Chief Operations Officer. “These innovations have resulted in benefits across all the stakeholders, providing faster, better and more consistent service for our customers, unlocking more time for our financial advisers to focus on meeting customers, and improved productivity of our Operations team. Transaction volume in our branches and Call Centre are slowly going down since we’ve seen growth in usage among Financial Advisors, and service satisfaction levels have also improved as measured by independently conducted surveys. There is positive momentum in transforming how we service our customers and enable our financial officers, and whilst we are happy with the progress thus far, this is only the beginning.”

Another digital breakthrough that allows Philam Life to continuously engage its customers is Philam Vitality, it's a science-backed wellness program that incentivizes members with rewards for knowing and improving their health. Through the Philam Vitality app, the company is able to continue engaging the customer even after the policy is served and before it matures or a claim is made.

Kelvin Ang, Philam Life Chief Executive Officer commented, “The positive feedback we’ve been receiving from customers and Financial Advisors are very encouraging. By enabling our Financial Advisors with digital tools that allow them to provide personalized service, we are able to hit two birds with one stone: ensure regular engagement with customers and serve them better.”
