Brotzeit Hosts Cooking Classes for Kids

This summer, Brotzeit is once again offering kids a unique opportunity to learn how to cook simple German dishes in a fun setting. Dubbed Kinder Koche, or little chef in German, the kiddie cooking classes will be conducted by Brotzeit’s Culinary Director, Chef Ivan Maminta, who is Swiss-trained and fluent in German.  

This will mark the second year that Brotzeit will be offering these cooking sessions for kids as last year's students & parents were very happy with the results.

Classes kicked off last April 10 with lessons on how to cook Brezn (German pretzels). This will be followed by the next course, Schokokuchen (Chocolate cake), on April 25, Fladen (Pizza) on May 16, and finally, Apfelstrudel (Apple Strudel), on May 23. Along the way, kids will learn key German phrases, too!

Each course costs P1,500 and includes an apron for the parent/guardian, a shirt for the child, basic kitchen tools, recipe sheets and a Certificate of Completion. (Tip: If you are enrolling more than one child, or if your child is taking more than one course, you can get great discounts!)

Creamy Chicken Adobo

Adobo is one of my kid's favorite aside from Fried Chicken. And this is also one of the famous Filipino dish around the world. Different provinces offered different version of their Adobo. And this time, I just wanna share my own version, its very simple and thanks to Lady's Choice Mayonnaise it becomes richer, creamier and tastier.


1 whole chicken, cut into serving pieces, prepared with Knorr Complete Recipe Mix Adobo        according to pack directions.
4. cloves garlic, crushed
1. pack Knorr Complete Recipe Mix Adobo
2. tbsp Lady's Choice Real Mayonnaise
Oil for frying, as needed


1. Bring the prepared adobo to boil. Then, reduce heat to simmer.
2. To bring out the richer and creamier taste of adobo sauce, stir in Lady's Choice Real Mayonnaise over low heat. Mix is well until Mayonnaise blends into a velvety, smooth consistency.

Lady's Choice Mayonnaise can bring  a delightfully rich and creamy taste to our family's favorite diahes. Made with real eggs and the freshest ingredients, even just a few tablespoon of Lady's Choice Real Mayonnaise bring a twist to a classic Kaldereta, Bistek, and Pinoy Spaghetti. Lady's Choice will never get tired of helping us serve 100% love to our dearest. You may visit www.ladyschoice.com.pH for more doses of delicious inspiration.

Total Girl Model Academy 2015

It was a fun, full of learnings Sunday for our ate KC when she joined the Total Girl Model Academy yesterday. Total Girl Philippines, the first and only lifestyle magazine for tween girls, successfully staged the 2015 Total Girl Model Academy at the Glorietta Activity Center, Palm Drive, where aspiring young models, ages 8 to 13, went through a series of workshops before the go-see finale.

My daughter and the hopeful participants received a passport upon entering the venue, which guided them through the different stages.  Ate KC was the 82nd participant, each stage was led by professional mentors who helped them hone their styling and modelling skills. The first stage was the styling studio where they discovered their own style, with the help of Raizel Dy, a fashion stylist and make-up artist who worked in some of the countrys fashion magazines. Then at the second stage, they proceeded to the catwalk class where they flaunted their styles through ramp modelling, proper posture, and personality coaching with Ning Corteza, an instructor of runway modelling, imaging, and visual posing. With everything ready, during the third stage, they learned basic camera posing where they found their best angle with the help of 

Photography Coach Heidi Aquende, a commercial and editorial photographer. The fourth stage gave them a chance to practice what they learned from the previous stages. The photo booth produced comp cards, otherwise known as models set cards, for participants to take home as souvenirs. The last stage is the final test of this event: the go-see. Here they applied everything that theyve learned from the entire workshop, in front of a panel of judges. 

From more than 100 young hopefuls, the editorial team of Total Girl will choose 10 winners to be featured in Total Girls September 2015 Fashion and Beauty issue. Aside from being featured, the winners will also get special prizes from the sponsors. Though the winners were not yet announced on the event itself, they will be contacted by the Total Girl team in the following days. 

Total Girl Model Academy is a great opportunity to empower young girls to live their best tween lives ever- being confident, cool, and fun! This is definitely one memorable summer experience for all who joined as they learned stylish ideas that would help them shine bright. Grab the latest issue of Total Girl and sail away with Darren Espanto.

CDC Holding's first Summer Carnival

Yesterday, we joined the fun of summer at CDC's Summer Carnival. CDC Holdings, a real state development company,  held its first-ever summer Carnival for its residents last April 18. The event kick off at its Manila Rivercity Residences project in Santa Ana, Manila. The kids and families from its Paranaque property, Lion Park Residences, will enjoy the event the next day.

The Summer Carnival event featured outdoor recreation wherein members of the CDC community are given the chance to have a fruitful bonding experience while enjoying the games and prizes CDC has prepared.

CDC Holdings believed in going beyond buying properties, but puts value in building communities. It takes time to initiate and organize fun activities for its residents whole year round.

According to Charlene Chua, CDC Holdings Executive Vice President, "We have always valued building communities as part of developing our properties. This is our way to foster a sense of community and further build goodwill among our residents. Through activities such as the Summer Carnival, we wish to instill to our residents the value and importance of community, especially during this time when we are moving at a faster pace and seem to be more detached from each other due to technology, as well as busy schedules. We want to bring back that sense of community wherein neighbors interact positively and support each other, prividing a sense of belonging that is beneficial to all."

At the CDC Summer Carnival, exciting games are in store for residents, including Hoo-A-Loop (Ring Toes), Knock Out, Catch the fish and more. Kids of all ages also enjoyed being engulfed in a giant zorb ball, as well as having fun time with other with other kids at the inflatable playground. CDC also offered delicious summer treats for the children , such as cotton candy, popcorn, and ice cream.

CDC Holdings Inc. Is the investment arm of a group of companies engaged in property development, property management, sales and marketing, and hotel and serviced- residences management. Founded in 1986 by Elsie Chua, CDC Holdings President and CEO, the company has since established itself as one of the most recognized and respected leaders in the Philippine real state industry.
