Tang Galing Kids!

by - June 27, 2011

Attended the Tang Galing Mo Kid! event last Thursday with my Beb Ana. Even if though it was pouring, we still braved the rain to see what Tang has in store for us and the kids. Plus, this was my first mommy event, so I didn't want to miss it!:)

The event was held at the Filipinas Heritage Library, Makati and when we got there, we were welcomed by the Filipino fiesta theme. From the decorations down to the food itself was catered by Via Mare, so we had a really good Filipino style lunch. :)




Ana and I found it amusing that the sauce of the Lumpia was made out of Tang and believe me, it was delicious! Never knew Tang juice could actually be turned into sauce. Brilliant!:)


It's nice to know that bloggers or people in the online world are able to witness these kinds of events. :)



What to drink? Tang juice, of course!:) I think mine was strawberry?;)



In line with our fiesta theme, we each got to take home a Tang recycled-woven bag a.k.a. bayong made by Alay Kapwa. The bag's really sturdy, BTW. It was filled with Tang goodies and I had to carry it all the way home and it didn't even break. You really gotta love recycled stuff that is made with love. Thanks to the community of Alay Kapwa!!


To start the event, Ms. Ria Tanjuatco-Trillo and her cute daughter, Rocio gave the opening remarks. I found Rocio SO cute while she was hosting. Made me wish I had a baby girl too! ^_^

The main highlight of the Tang Galing Mo Kid event was about how kids can achieve great things even at a young age and how Mother's have a crucial role in shaping the dreams and nurturing the potential of their children.


Relationship and Parenting Expert and Co-founder of the Love Institute, Ms. Maribel Sison Dioniso was the first speaker and she talked about the ABC's of Bring Out the Greatness in Kids...

A- Attention-Giving
B- Build Self-Worth
C- Communicate Regularly and Well
D- Discipline with Love
E- Enhance Couple/ Individual Relationship

To summarize this, she mentioned that even if, we parents are busy with our daily routines in life, like work or studies in my case...
  • We shouldn't forget to give time to our children
  • We should allot time to have fun with them, chat with them and educate them everyday. 
  • We should know how to communicate and especially listen to our children. They may be small/young, but what they say is important and we should encourage them in a positive way. 
  • When it comes to discipline, a cruel punishment should not be the case. No spanking, shouting or threats. We should use logical and natural consequences when dealing with them and set limits but with choices.
  • Lastly, even if we're mothers, we shouldn't forget that we also have partners. We should have time for our spouse, like go on weekly dates, couple activities, talk to each other, in order to have a good relationship. This helps keep the family healthy and happy.
Personally, I liked this topic, because as a young Mom, I believe I have a lot more to learn and of course, I also want to know if I'm doing the right thing for my son and partner. :)



The next speaker was Mr. Alex Tacderas, who gave us an inspiring talk on how kids can be a big impact on our community today. :)

Here's a short video that was showed during his talk...


The last speaker of the day was, Eman Bagual. The founder of MIND YOUR RIGHTS, which upholds children's rights. He told us that when he was younger, he helped his parents raise money for a day to day survival, attended classes during the week after his work and spend his weekends selling corn. His life was tough, but he wanted us to know that this shouldn't stop us from achieving and dreaming big things in life. He did all those when he was younger. Didn't let anyone get him down and now he's one of the top 5 nominees for this year's Nobel Peace Prize Awards for Children's rights, because of his strong beliefs. :)

So now, TANG is on a search for 7 Kids with 7 unique achievements. The young achievers age 7 to 12 years old will be awarded and be given Php 100, 000 each. This is to celebrate the greatness of today's kids. :)
More info....

To encourage more kids to become involved in their communities, Tang launches Search for Tang Galing Kids. Tang believes that despite their age and innocence, the tiny tykes can bring a refreshing change in the community.
The search is open to organizations whose members may nominate as many kids they want. Only one child per organization member is allowed. Each kid corresponds to one entry.  Each entry must have a one-pager story on the life of the kid and the small steps that the kid makes or has made which are inspiring and worth emulating. An official nomination form may be mailed to 5thP Advertising at 55D Matahimik St, Teacher’s Village, West Diliman Quezon City. Entries may also be sent via email through tanggalingkids@gmail.com with the subject Tang Galing Nomination Form. Entries may be sent in from June 23 to August 6, 2011. Seven winners will be chosen as Tang Galing Kids.

The Seven Tang Galing Kids will be announced on August 23, 2011. Each will receive a cash prize which they can use to implement a project of their choice. The winning kids and their nominating organizations will each garner a Php100,000.00 cash prize. 

It’s high time for a refreshing and youthful change. Let children shine and show how their little steps can transform into big strides; how these kids’ greatness can make them heroes as they make a difference with Tang.

To end the event, The Concordia Children's Services Choir sang for us in their angelic voices. :)


The Tang event was really inspiring for me and I would like to thank, Jules and Ana for inviting me!


I learned a lot from this and I got to appreciate Athan's capabilities more as a kid. I hope I can be a better parent from this experience, so can Athan can grow up to be a productive, healthy and happy boy. :)

Shout out to all the mom's out there doing a great job! I'm sure your kids can feel it. ;)
