The Mind Museum, the Philippines’ first world-class science museum, launches its online fundraising campaign through its redesigned website (www.themindmuseum.org) on May 29, 2010 at the Activity Center of Market! Market!, Taguig City.

The Sanuk Sandcastle Challenge

[ad#body-big]
Sanuk brought the beach to the city by organizing the Sanuk Sandcastle Challenge. There’s no better way to say goodbye to summer than this. The challenge – build a sandcastle within a 4 sqm box filled with 8 cubic meters of silica sand. Five groups were formed. Some were students and teachers, and some as a family. All together for an afternoon of fun and sweltering heat at Boni High Street.

I tagged along with my sister and nephew for the launching of Earth Tales -3 Ecofables for Children at 1/of Gallery in Serendra, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig. The tales are about environmental issues that we are experiencing today and are weaved into beautiful stories with colorful illustrations. This is one of the ways that parents can teach their kids on how to take care and preserve our environment.

The book features the works of three of the best contemporary Pinoy artists – Plet Bolipata, Ivee Olivares Mellor and Liza Flores.

Famous Pinoy Icons On Lupang Hinirang Shirts

I went to Global Pinoy Bazaar at the Rockwell Tent a few months ago. There were a lot of Pinoy stalls there that sell baskets, bangles, and bags but only one stall caught my eye. I saw these white t-shirts designed with faces of Imelda, Jose Rizal, and Dolphy! I was really amazed with the designs. Truly a priceless work of art, right? The t-shirt designs are actually continuous line art drawings. It looks like scribbled drawings of Pinoy icons from the past and the present. These beautiful t-shirt designs are made by a senior student of UP Diliman majoring in Industrial Design named Aya Ng. I met this cute girl at Global Pinoy Bazaar and asked if these t-shirts were a product of a group project. She humbly said with a smile that she’s the only one in the team. Amazing, right? Way to go, Aya!

Whip Up A Christmas Decor In A Flash

We were shopping at TriNoma the other week when my sister confided that she wants to decorate our house for Christmas. Knowing our religious views, I told her that we never do that since birth. But I changed my mind after a few seconds because we both want to brighten up our gloomy house a little bit. So we decided to just start decorating with the table.

We are two of the low budget-loving people so imagine our thrill with these inexpensive finds for our Christmas table decoration: a plate (35 pesos), a candle (55 pesos), some Christmas balls (40 pesos) and a pine twig (70 pesos). That’s about 200 pesos worth of materials for a Christmas table decor. Not bad, huh?


Now for the instruction:

First step
Wrap the pine twig around the candle.

Second step
Put the twig-wrapped candle on top of the plate.

Third step
Place the Christmas balls on top of the plate around the twig-wrapped candle.


Voila! You now have a Christmas decor to brighten up your table. Happy Holidays, everyone!
