Baby Blast Year 3: It's More Fun with the Family

And the countdown to the biggest & grandest baby event of the year begins!

Outbox Media Production in cooperation with the Department of Social Welfare and Development, Department of Education and the Philippine Pediatric Society proudly brings you the Baby Blast 3. One whole day of non-stop fun for you and your little ones!

To all mommies out there, you are cordially invited to attend the grandest baby event of the year, Baby Blast 3, happening on April 22, 2012, from 10am to 8pm at the Trinoma Activity Center.

Rockstarmomma, as well as Shutter Count, is proud to be one of the media partners of Baby Blast 2012. This event aims to have a lasting influence in the education and future of children. It also aims to promote Early Head Start (EHS) Education, and to have a lasting influence of its advocacy on the importance of fun learning.

Following the very successful launch of “Baby Blast: Fun Learning Starts Now” in 2010, and the well received "Baby Blast: Fun Learning Continues" in 2011, we again encourage you to join us in celebrating the wonder of life at its early stages!

Recognizing that Early Head Start (EHS) is crucial in the social, intellectual and physical development of children age 0-3 years, EHS advocates, teachers, experts and parents together with their kids, will once again gather on April 22, 2012, from 10am-7pm at Trinoma Activity Center for “Baby Blast Year 3: It's More Fun with the Family.

The EHS has been in existence in the US since 1995, and in the Philippines, it has already gained a following from parents that appreciate and see how it benefits their children. Several institutions already offer programs that promote enjoyable, unforced learning, as well as hands-on play and parent-child bonding. Even the government has taken notice. “We ought to ensure continuity in making efforts to provide holistic development for children in their most important period where they gain the foundation of future learning. Behavioral science said that there is nothing more critical in a child's life than this early formation," a statement issued by Sen. Edgardo Angara, who chairs the Senate Committee on Education, Arts and Culture.

To continue to bring this advocacy to more parents and educators, and to enlighten existing EHS supporters with the latest developments and methods in early education, “Baby Blast Year 3: It's More Fun with the Family” will highlight entertaining talks on health, parenting and education from experts, parents and teachers, educational material demos, parent and baby exhibits, as well as booths and fun activities! This year’s activities will give emphasis on the role of each member of the family in the development of babies. There will be EHS demonstrations, an Imagination Corner highlighting books, toys and interactive technologies, as well as a wellness and fitness area for baby and the whole family!

MDNA, Madonna's 12th Studio Album is Truly Sensational

Madonna, the Queen of Pop, is back...  with a vengeance. With her new sensational album MDNA.

If listeners find all the earmarks and trademarks of Madonna in her latest album, that’s a testament to her deep involvement to the process of creating the package, her twelfth and first outside her old label. The powerplay of maturity and a new beginning she's now embarking on makes this one another turning point to her career strengthened by ingenuity and artistic adventure.
 While the album title, “MDNA,” is a mere abbreviation of the Mother of Invention’s world-famous name (as suggested by collaborator M.I.A), its accidental meaning, being Madonna’s DNA, actually defines the finished product as her imprint as one of the world’s most successful artists of all time can be heard all over the collection.

The 12-track album, to be released this March 26, is led by the cool single “Give Me All Your Luvin” featuring Nicki Minaj and M.I.A. By now the track has spread via limited privilege as provided by iTunes --- in the process only hastening the interest and anticipation for the Queen of Pop’s album since 2008.

Her recent Super Bowl appearance seemed to have rubbed on to this engaging track as its official music video has football and cheerleading as main themes.

A second collaboration between Madonna and Minaj comes in the form of the song “I Don’t Give A.” Album producer Martin Solveig pointed out in an interview, "Madonna is as involved as you can be in the recording process. We literally co-produced the tracks. I mean, at some point she wanted to choose the sound of a snare drum or a synth and that kind of stuff. She was really in the session!"

One other track of high interest prior to the formal physical CD release is “Masterpiece” which bagged the Golden Globe Award for Original Song in the last edition of the Awards. Recorded in New York and LA, “MDNA” had Madonna reworking with ex-collaborator William Orbit (who worked on “Ray of Light”). The latter co-wrote and co-produced several cuts for the new album.

Other numbers in the album are “Girl Gone Wild,” “Gang Bang,” “I’m Addicted,” “Turn Up the Radio,” “Some Girls,” “Superstar,” “Love Spent,” “I’m A Sinner” and “Falling Free.”

Madonna’s “MDNA” is soon to be out under MCA Music in CDs at leading record bars nationwide or online via mymusicstore.com.ph. To download Madonna’s current single, “Give Me All Your Luvin” featuring Nicki Minaj and M.I.A. on your mobile phones, just textKB285and send to2332 for GLOBE/TM, text GIVELUVIN and send to 2728 for SMART/ Talk N’ Text and text 5493368 and send to 2300 for SUN Cellular.

Summer is Hotter with Banana Boat Sunscreen Lotion, Schick, & Nuffnang

It is summer and it’s hot. And it's about to get even hotter with Banana Boat Sunscreen Lotion, Schick, & Nuffnang.

Summertime can't come fast enough though 'cause I already have all kinds of plans already made. But still, I really can't help but think of my ideal Nuffnang summer. I dream of a place uninterrupted. I dream of a week, or maybe 2 or 3, a truckload of grilled bbq and steak quarters and some beer or a glass of fruit shake. No interruptions. No stress. No worries. Well, that's just a rough estimate of my ideal Nuffnang Summer.

Actually, my ideal Nuffnang summer is going to a place where I can enjoy some peace and quiet. Either that or my ultimate summer would be to go to on a trip either to Bohol or to Coron, at the beach as the ending desitination.
me and my lovey at the beach :)
I love the beach and I like it when the sun shines on my face and when I feel the sand between my toes.

Here's a few of my fave pics from last summer.
Boracay last Holy week, April 2011
Summer family vacay at Boracay last June 2011
As for me, it doesn't have to be anything expensive or elaborate. I would take along my family and my good old trusty camera. First, to have fun and second, to capture the fun, unscripted moments that inspire my summer shenanigans. I simply think of all the pictures I can take and all of the places I could explore.

I also like riding the banana boat. If it's possible, I'd spend the whole day jet skiing, parasailing and riding the banana boat. I kinda wanna move to the beach and be one of those banana boat dudes for the rest of my life. But, I repeat, BUT I refuse to fall off and come off of it with scraped knuckles. :)

Speaking of banana boat, Banana Boat sunscreen lotion will surely be my BFF. I believe in their tag line, "Banana Boat Sunscreen Lotion. We've got you covered." Because it really got me, literally and figuratively, covered! With it, I could take a moment to bask in the glory of Mr. Sun, then I'm gonna cry of happiness and enjoy life. That smell of Banana boat sunscreen and the sun on my skin is just perfect.

Oh and boys, don't forget that sunscreen is not just for women! Anyone going out into the sun must apply sunscreen to keep his or her skin healthy. You should also have to play it smooth and add extra pogi points by shaving some of your beards this summer. So please shave it dude 'cause summer beards are really gross. So why don't you try out Schick for a hotter you this summer. Get Schick. Free your skin. You guys will surely look so much hotter than a summer day on the hottest place in the planet. It'll leave your skin feeling smooth and you'll never feel a better, fresher, and cleaner shave this summer!

Believe me, summer is definitely hotter than a sauna with Banana Boat Sunscreen Lotion, Schick, & Nuffnang! :)
