Since we were just nakiki-Wi-Fi with our SIL, they almost had a month long internet connection problems with Globe (intermittent WLAN connection) and finally resolved this week by getting a new line and modem, we were also greatly affected. Haha! There were times that I had to check out emails on a not so nearby computer shop rentals, which I wonder why are they no longer in an air-conditioned area and not to mention the screaming DOTA players. Hehe. Not really suitable for me who sometimes need to rush out on some writing assignments.
I also felt sad that I had to let go of another blog which was given by a dear blogger friend. I really have no choice because I don’t have the funds to keep it up. Another thing, I need to fix some problems offline. I even have to turn down a very good offer (job) from a friend for some reasons. Haay! It’s a blow by blow conflicts that are really taking a toll on our lives. We’re still struggling and still coping up. Time and again, I know things will get better in the end. My mom got hospitalized late last week due to high blood sugar level and we were not able to visit her Just received a call late yesterday from my sister that she was finally discharged (Thank God!) and taking insulin shot were no longer recommended by her new doctor. Ian and I were so looking forward to visit her soon in their new home somewhere in south.
Kids are doing ok in their new school ( First Periodical Test are up by early next month). I have a lot of catching to do with regards to their milestones. Still keeping up with taking pictures of them every now and then, only I don’t get to share them lately on FB nor Instagram. Another thing, I hope to get some freelancing jobs again.
Catch up soon again… I hope to have some happy and cheery posts next time
Zesto-O has always been a part of my childhood because my mom would always keep a tetra pack in my lunch box I think, most of my classmates do too! haha! Now that I am a parent myself, I share and do the same for my kids as well. They do have Zesto-O as part of their baon. Very affordable and thirst quenching. Love the different fruity flavors. Actually, I am just a couple of years older from my favorite drink :=)
Zest-O Corporation celebrated a milestone last June 18, 2015 as they celebrated 35 fruitful years of providing consumers with quality products that have touched so many lives. Zest-O employees, suppliers, trade partners and special guests assembled in full force at Blue Leaf Filipinas to honor the occasion. It was truly a grand affair that Zest-O deserved. Imagine 35 striving years in producing the best consumer products possible, consequently producing 35 years of making Filipinos happy.
Setting the bar high, El Gamma Penumbra, the grand champion of the recent Asia’s Got Talent, kicked off the commemoration with a jaw-dropping performance. They gave a spectacular show that gorgeously commenced the well-attended event. And to further capture the emotion of the night, they concluded their performance by revealing the 35th anniversary logo of Zest-O Corporation.
The hosts of the night were the lovely Amy Perez and the handsome Atom Araullo, who energetically lifted the spirits of everyone in the audience – sharing their own dose of Zest-O stories. They did an excellent job of securing the ecstatic mood of everyone from start to finish. It was definitely both happy and nostalgic for the whole Zest-O family as each had their own personal narratives towards the iconic orange juice drink.
The program moved smoothly as expected. To further elevate the celebration were special performances from the Prince of Pop, Erik Santos, the freshest hip-hop dancers, G-Force Poppers, and the rock n’ roll spirit of Joey Generoso. Zest-O employees also joined in the fun by engaging in an OPM Karaoke battle. Entertaining everyone present in the event, they sang songs that mirrored the Filipino nature of Zest-O. It was the perfect setup, which encapsulated Zest-O’s Filipino essence. The guests were up on their feet all night singing along to the eternal tunes of classic OPM songs.
It was a conglomeration of stars and VIPs that boosted the energy levels of everyone in the venue. VIPs, such as suppliers and trade partners, gave their undisputed support to the brand that has made an indelible mark on their lives. Each and everyone in the room could attest that Zest-O will forever be part of their young, teenage, and adult lives. And that is a clear-cut indication of a mega brand.
The participation of Mr. Alfredo Yao, Founder and Chairman of the Board, his children Ms. Carolyn Yao, Chief Finance Officer, and Mr. Jeffrey Yao, Chief Executive Officer, also made a big impact to the celebration. Carolyn led a heartfelt prayer before the program while Jeffrey admiringly introduced the hardest working man he has ever known, his father. Mr. Salvador Carrion, Chief Operating Officer, also gave his opening remarks that acknowledged the never fading support of their partners.
Many guests acknowledged that one of the most unforgettable parts of the program was the awe-inspiring speech of Mr. Alfredo M. Yao, the heart and soul of Zest-O Corporation. He delivered his speech with confidence and fervor, which resulted to a groundbreaking standing ovation. He breezed through his lines as if it were his 100th time to relay his message. All eyes and ears were glued to his presence while he was on stage. And his words penetrated into the hearts of everyone – motivating each person to work hard, to strive for something greater, and to become a leader on their own. It was a speech that was meant to inspire, motivate, and at the same, challenge everyone to work harder for a better and stronger Zest-O Corporation.
The night was filled with emotions – a kind of happiness mixed with nostalgia, especially during the walk through of the different historic jingles of Zest-O. Though the majority was reminiscent of the past, Zest-O countered it with the future – an exclusive first listen to the newest jingle of Zest-O. It’s definitely another jingle that would transcend time. As with all the jingles they have produced in the past, this one is another contender that would definitely leave a long-lasting mark in the ears of the public.
The celebration ended with a high and admiring note – a note of moving forward and an indication that the future will even be more promising for Zest-O. Just like what the toast signified, this 35th anniversary celebration connotes a new chapter for Zest-O – a new page that will be one for the books once more. They are already progressing and they are constantly improving their products, facilities, and technology to meet their objectives. And for Mr. Alfredo M. Yao, his dream of seeing Zest-O become an international brand remains firm. With the on-going initiatives of Mr. Alfredo Yao and the rest of the Zest-O Corporation, they are undoubtedly closer to their goal of globalization.

At times children can be very demanding and no doubt about that! When you’re at home all day with your kids specially on weekends and you don’t get anytime for grown up conversations, you start feeling tied up with responsibilities and get bored every now and then.
So, what do you do to give something for yourself and have that me time? Have you ever thought what to do once the kids are fed, bathed, and have had their bedtime stories? Might be you switch on the television and watch the same serials, but is it the only option what you do in spare time?

I was suppose to continue from where I left off with my last post, but I totally forgot due to stress (caused by I don’t know if it’s the connection or the PC itself). 😀 I even made a note of my upcoming posts only to be dismay because I lost all the pictures I needed for it. It was about all the sample products (freebies) that I received from EverydayMe. I remember registering in their site late last year and received the Ariel Powder soap and Downy Fabric Conditioner along with the membership card and a few discount coupons.
Next came were diapers ( I forgot the brand), then the Pantene 3 Minute Miracle Conditioner, Whisper Cottony X-Long, Downy Parfum Timeless Collection Scent Switcher. Those were really all good products as I have really tried and tested and gain favorable results with it.
Oh well, I really need a good “smart phone” for myself for my blogging needs. Tehee. Anyway, last Friday, since we could not open the kitchen due to flood in our street ( due to the DPWH project that is taking more than 49 years already!) Ian told me that he’ll teach me how to make an Egg Pie! and since I am not really a fan of cooking nor baking, I didn’t get excited with the idea! Hahaha!
But hey, I was wrong, when I finally was able to make my very own crust and get to taste the fruit of my labor, I think I fell in love with baking?!
We didn’t get the perfect color of the topping because we omitted doing the egg white foam?! Oh, but it really taste good!!! We were able to fill 2 pie dish and about 16 slices all in all. Happy tummy is what we really had that day!
Today is my son’s birthday. He got all his gifts as early as last month so for today, DH cooked pasta Carbonara. While the birthday celebrant and his big sister is out to attend their playmate’s 7th birthday, which they said had big pig (Lechon!), unlimited dirty ice cream, cakes, spaghetti, clowns, lots of food and plenty of games. They indeed enjoyed the day. Whew! Seems like the little forgot that it was his birthday eh. Haha!
This month is about to end this week. I am so looking forward to a fruitful and productive week ahead. I hope that I may be able to continue to update this blog more often like this. I missed blogging. Also, May God grant our wish for the kids soon. I hope you are enjoying the last days for the summer vacation! Have a great week ahead everyone!
