Bear Brand Introduces “Ang Alamat ng Matibay” Children's Book

BEAR BRAND Powdered Milk Drink reinforces TIBAY through “Ang Alamat ng Matibay” Children’s Book

As part of its continuing efforts to help nourish generations of Filipino families to good health, BEAR BRAND Powdered Milk Drink has added a new dimension to its TIBAY campaign with the launch of its 1st children’s book entitled Ang Alamat ng Matibay, which highlights the importance of tibay ng kalooban.

A simple and beautifully illustrated story that teaches children how tibay ng loob can help them overcome obstacles in order to achieve their goals, Ang Alamat ng Matibay revolves around the kind and loving Mina, a child beset with fears.  When her teddy bear, which she regards as her best friend, was stolen, the ever respectful Mina goes on a search mission in an enchanted world where she was forced to conquer all her fears and thus develop tibay ng loob.  As she embarks on her adventure, she not only finds her lost best friend, she also develops a friendship with the toy thief Anino.

This is part of BEAR BRAND Powdered Milk Drink’s long-running Tibay campaign, which espouses Tibay ng Katawan, Kalooban, at Isipan.  

“Today’s parents regard tibay ng loob as an important factor to help their kids succeed in life.  But honing tibay ng loob among children must start when they are still young in order to prepare them for the challenges that life brings,” explained Willy de Ocampo, NestlĂ© Philippines Team Lead for BEAR BRAND.

BEAR BRAND, in partnership with The Storytelling Project, Klasrum ng Pag-asa, Art Attack, and National Bookstore will donate 10,000 copies of the book to select public schools and partner organizations.  The book will also be available in selected branches of National Bookstore starting December 15, 2014

“We would like to promote tibay ng loob to as many Filipino school children as possible and our partner-organizations will help us reach out to them,” Jojo dela Cruz, NestlĂ© Philippines Business Executive Manager for Dairy, Health and Nutrition Solution, explained.  “By providing schools and communities with copies of the book, we hope to foster among school children the importance of strength of character and strength of will, values that they can bring with them as they journey through life.  We hope that through Ang Alamat ng Matibay, we can help mold the future leaders of our country.”

Dog Costumes

Dog is a man's bestfriend so they should be treated with love and care. For dog lover like us, it is always nice to see our cutie dogs all prepped up. We thought to look for cute and adorable pieces for our two new puppies. In choosing, you can either match the costume according to the pet owner's personality and style or dress them up with costumes that match their adorable personalities. Look for dog halloween costumes to see more ideas and inspiration on how to dress up your doggies.

Get Ready for Holiday Decoration

For sure most of you moms are starting to decorate your homes and offices for the coming holidays. I am pretty much ready to put all those Christmas decorations up. I am still trying to figure out how, sigh.

Decorating is one of the most exciting part of the holiday season. Especially if you have kids around, they are delighted by Christmas decors. However, it could be stressful too. Whether you have a little space or either plenty of rooms to decorate. Because it somehow needs a bit of art to make it look a lot more pleasant and you feel the spirit of holidays.

One of the best decoration you can add up are d56 at this site. All those cute pieces are stylish, fun looking and very admirable. I personally couldn't help but smile when I look at 'em.

Christmas decoration will never be as fun with festive pieces. I can't wait to put up my decors.

Estimate how much you are willing to spend for the holiday and make a list of your expenses. Don'tgo beyond the amount you can allot because that will just add problem after holidays.

Command: My Damage-Free Hanging Solution

Yesterday, after we went from shopping, I did a little organizing at our bedrooms. I bought two wall clocks for each of our rooms because I thought wall clock is far better option than the small alarm clocks on the tables. You can easily see the time with a wall clock because it is bigger and well positioned on the wall.
