Our RiteMed Tamang Alaga Day Para Kay Nanay Experience!
Last May 20 was RiteMed’s Tamang Alaga Day at Crowne Plaza beside Robinson’s Galleria. It is a fun-filled event for moms and their kids to take a break from the daily grind. This was done to honor all the hardworking mommies every where. Gaining an invite to this event is a matter of chance as their official page only gave away tickets through an online raffle and I was lucky enough to be one of the recipients. Each pass allows the bearer 2 seats on the venue so I bought my 2 daughters since I could carry my youngest.
Outside the venue, a photo booth was set up and what better way to commemorate this fun event than with a picture! There were also snacks outside at the waiting area while mommies waited for the event to start. However, we came in right before the event started so we were not able to fully enjoy that perk.
The venue is basically just a big function room with a stage, rows of chairs, a play area for kids, and 3 mini open spaces for the different activities for the mothers. We were given a raffle ticket with three allotted squares to mark the completion of each activity. Finishing all the activities gives the mothers a chance to take home one of the 3 Samsung phones or even the Samsung LED TV!
I was glad that I brought my older daughter with me as I will not be able to complete any of the activities because the kids need to be left at the play area. I did not have to worry about leaving my kid alone as my other daughter is looking after her. The activities last for about 15 minutes each. The first activity I did was the TAMANG NUTRISYON where the basics of proper nutrition was discussed, with emphasis on eating more fruits and vegetables. We were given sticks and different slices of fruits to make our very own fruit kebabs. It was a really fun activity and I enjoyed it too much! I was too focused on the pattern and symmetry of the fruits on the sticks that I ran out of time LOL but I did finish it and I got to take it to share with my kids.
Next up is TAMANG EHERSISYO. This one is a challenge! It is like being in P.E. class again, but then again, it really is good for the body to get cardio exercises regularly. We did rounds of different heart-pumping exercises like jumping jacks, stretching, and jogging!
The last activity was TAMANG RELAXATION. There were number of masseuse on the area and I got a much needed massage. It definitely was a relaxing activity. After that, it was now break time.
Pancit and sandwiches were served. My youngest was eager to eat the noodles. This is one of her favourite dishes.
The RiteMed mascot made an appearance and all the kids were ecstatic. Of course, I would not miss the chance to take a picture with the mascot, but my youngest was a bit hesitant 😀
After the merienda break, it was finally the time for Camille Prats’ panel. She discussed a lot of ‘relateable’ topics about motherhood from pregnancy, breastfeeding, self-care up to handling emergency cases at home. She has her son with her and they even had a cute song number!
Finally, time for the raffle! It was really nerve-wracking! Everyone was hoping they would be lucky enough to take home one of the prizes. I was SO LUCKY AND BLESSED to be one of the winners of the Samsung phone! I was caught off guard as I was by the play area with my youngest as she is getting a bit restless. This is truly an amazing blessing to me as the phone I was using was already worn off. I am not one for buying expensive phones so this is a really wonderful blessing.
At the end, we were given certificates and a gift bag with brochures and a couple of sample medicines.
There was a lot of discounted medicines available so I availed a couple of multivitamins for my kids. At the end, here are what we were able to bring home from this wonderful event. I do wish that this was a large-scale event so more mothers have been able to attend. Nevertheless, I am looking forward to more events like this in the future 🙂
