My daughter spent the entire week in camp a few months back in Tanay, Rizal and though it has been months after she is still gushing with stories of how those days were the most fun days of her entire 11 years on Earth.
Actually, I was apprehensive at first to let her join camp, with the primary reason of the seeming gargantuan goals set up for the camp. The camp is an empowerment coaching program using Neuro-Linguistic techniques. It aims to fire up mindset, language and behavior of individuals immersed in it. My husband argues that you can’t change an individual in 5 days, and he is right. But I was willing to give it a try because I want to help our daughter reach her maximum potential. As I mentioned in my previous post, “Change from Within,” I believe all our kids have that innate talent in them and all it takes is an initial spark to fan it. So eyes closed, I wrote a check for the 5-day camp.
Our initial goal for our daughter is something school related. Well, she didn’t really achieve that but what she took out from the camp was so much more than that. [Read More...]
When I told my kids “Made in Candy” invited TheGoMom to their candy lab to make their own candy, they were giddy with excitement. Who wouldn’t? Put together Candy and lab and any kid will drool with excitement!
I didn’t realize how much attention to detail goes to each wonderfully designed candy. It was so interesting to see and experience making one especially with the kids around. Double the fun syempre when you see them all smiles.
Made in Candy, a franchise from Singapore, is Asia’s first independent candy kitchen. Here in the Philippines, Made in Candy can be found in Rockwell Powerplant, SM Megamall, Alabang Town Center, Glorietta 4 and SM Mall of Asia.
Each candy variety is designed and handcrafted by Candy craftsmen, who delight customers flocking around the store watching them make the candies to the beat of modern, hip music. When you think about it, they are artists because it takes a lot of imagination and skill to mold a candy into a design you like.
Over the years, MADE IN CANDY has customized simple to elaborate candies that delights kids and kids at heart not only with the designs but with the yummy taste as well. My kids and I had fun trying out the different designs and guessing what flavor it is – kiwi, raspberry, lychee, orange etc. They have 38 flavors and they currently have 40 standard designs and customized designs according to the holiday. Trick or treat themed candies? Father’s day inspired candies? Christmas candies?
MADE IN CANDY can customize your own candy too! Just remember to place your orders 2 weeks in advance. These candies would surely delight birthday and wedding guests:-)You may get in touch with them through the MADE IN CANDY FB page.
As for our fun, fun candy making experience …
First they boil the candy mixture and once it has reached the right temperature they pour it on their specially heated table for color mixing. Once color has been mixed, you mold the candies much like how you would in clay. After which you lay it on the heated table to ensure it doesn’t dry up and harden.
Since we were beginners, we made an easy rainbow designed candy. We layered our different colored candy which were still on the moldable form to make a rainbow. Once our rainbow is formed, we enveloped it in white candy and finished it off by enveloping it once again on the colorful striped candy which will ultimately form the outer layer of the candy.
Our cool and friendly candy men, Aaron and Jim, then stretched our rainbow candy to the right thickness and cooled it on a separate, non-heated table where the candy will eventually harden and will soon be ready for chopping into those sweet, delicious candies we find in every MADE IN CANDY jar. Tadah! Our very own MADE IN CANDY!

It is wonderful how a lot of things are anchored on the people we love.
Journeys are best taken with them. And surprises are more meaningful when given by them.
As a mom, we go through the entire journey of our kids – from diaper changes to pimple outbreaks. And we know at the palm of our hands the joys and heartaches of our kids. When Janet surprised Nicolle with her testimonial where she explained how sad she felt when Nicolle lost her confidence , Nicolle can’t help but be emotional because she didn’t realize how affected her mom was in those years.
I think it’s great that Maxi-Peeluses testimonials of everyday people to show how Maxi-Peelchanged the lives of “real people” and their loved ones. It shows “real people” issues and concerns. Issues we as parents and they as children face in everyday life.
As we face those issues, it is good to know that Maxi-Peelis there to address it. Maxi-Peelmakes use of exfoliation to help prevent breakouts. Exfoliation remains to be an unparalleled technology in removing dead skin cells and delivering blemish-free, smoother skin!
Maxi-Peel possesses an even more POTENT formulation to rid nuances in the skin, such as acne, pimples, blackheads, whiteheads, and dark skin.
Parents can be rest assured that Maxi-Peel (for women 18 and above) is safe as it is specially formulated by experts and is adherent to FDA. In order to use Maxi-Peel safely and to ensure best results, a regimen must be religiously followed along with the instructions written on the box, re application, length of use etc.. Like most exfoliating treatments, Maxi-Peel advises all users to apply sunblock after exfoliation.
Once Nicolle was able to control her pimples, she got her cheery disposition back. I can empathize with the joy Janet felt when she saw her jolly, old Nicolle back.
With the help of Maxi-Peel, the fears and insecurities of our kids will hopefully be put to rest and they can rest in the knowledge that they are indeed beautiful, inside and out.

Disclosure: Thanks to Maxi-Peel for sponsoring this post. Although this post is sponsored, opinions expressed on the testimonial video remains to be my own.
Disclaimer: I have not used Maxi-Peel for myself because I’m thankfully past my breakout stage. I have heard of good reviews though and won’t hesitate to use it when needed. But as with any facial treatments, caution and strict adherence to proper use is necessary for safety and best results.
