BOOMco: Blast Better Summer Explosion

Last April 23, 2016 was an action-packed weekend for Tristan as we attended BOOMco's Blast Better Summer Explosion event at the Music Hall of SM Mall of Asia. 

BOOMco is the new generation blasters made by Mattel™ for boys and girls too! If you are worrying about kids safety, don't worry as these blasters are safe. The darts are made of soft, flexible and durable plastic. They also use the Smart Stick technology thus the tip of each darts stick to Smart Stick targets and shields.

When we arrived at the event venue Tristan can't contain his excitement upon seeing all these BOOMco. Blasters on display.

During the event selected blasters are sold with 40% off and this promotion will last until May 31, 2016. For every purchase of any BOOMco blaster except Clipfire, customers will get a free pass at the BOOMco Blast Better Summer Explosion they just have to present their receipt to authorized Richprime representative.

Before the event officially started, Tristan and the other kids had the chance to try out different blasters and practice for the challenge. 

Baby Brianna was there too and cheered for her kuya since she's still young and small to participate. 

The kids were grouped in 2 teams with 5 members each team. Tristan was part of the red team. They were also properly geared for safety and protection. Tristan was all smiles the entire duration of the event. Honestly, he wasn't really aware about the rules of the game he was just having fun, running and trying to shoot as long as he can. When his team lost he claimed that he should be in blue team which was the winning team, haha! He actually thought all along that he was in Blue Team, it was my fault somehow because before the game started I explained to him how to play and gave him a scenario. I told him to pretend that he's in blue team and that he should shoot his opponent which is the red team. 

Nevertheless, he definitely had an awesome time playing! He can't stop talking about it even as we went home. 

He was even happier as we went home with his new BOOMco.™ Farshot™ Blaster. It has single-fire blasting action which can fire up to 70 feet. It can hold 2 additional darts in the handle for quick reload. It also has a removable shields with Smart Stick technology which allows him to capture his opponents darts. It also comes with Smart stick targets which he pasted on the back of our leather chair. 

Please take note not to paste the Smart Stick targets on hard surfaces as the darts will bounce back. 

Here's a shot video of Tristan playing at the BOOMco: Blast Better Summer Explosion!

Score huge discounts up to 40% off on selected BOOMco blasters from Apr. 1 - May 31!

New Year 2016 And A Look Back on 2015

Hi there! I know it's a little bit late but let me just greet all of you a Happy New Year and I hope that all is well. We haven't updated the blog for weeks already except for the very first post I made this year which has also been long overdue. I swear I've been meaning to blog for the past weeks, backlogs have piled up already but I just couldn't find the time. I admit that all these mommy duties overwhelmed me big time especially that we don't have a helper. I had several attempts to blog but I easily get distracted even with the smallest of things that my kids do, so I end up with nothing. Also we all know that December is one of the busiest month for all of us. My kids and I got sick too just imagine how much of a stress that was.

Because of the terrible headache we missed the traditional New Year's eve family picture. I'm just glad that they were able to take photos of the kids wearing their Chinese outfit which we bought earlier that day.
New Year's celebration wasn't also that great as I had a terrible headache few minutes before 12 midnight. I was just on the bed waiting for the medicine to take effect which actually took longer than I was expecting therefore I missed the Media Noche. However the next day we all went to SM Southmall to celebrate New Year's day, our first family date out for 2016.

Husband and I then took advantage of the remaining days before classes finally resume. We went on our first couple date this year; a spa date at The Spa and then we watched Beauty and the Bestie. Which I will be blogging about soon.
We thought of starting the new year the best way possible, well we did but unfortunately the very next day, I got sick with flu. I was sick for almost a week and wasn't able to perform mommy duties, good thing Jaear was here.

Alright so that pretty much sums up the event that took place during the holiday season and the reason why we were idle for the past weeks. So now as we transition into the new year, I would first like to take you to a quick look back on the relevant events that happened last year.

Our eldest graduated from Kinder 1 March last year which was held at the Philippine International Convention Center. He got the "Most Cheerful Pupil" recognition. I've graduated 4 times from the past but the thought of your own child graduating for the first time gives a different kind of joy.
Late summer of last year I got to be with my parents, reunited with my friends and the kids had loads of fun too with their cousins.
Every year we see to it that we get to visit my hometown La Union, but we missed last 2014 and for a lot of reasons we almost missed it again last year. It was already May and we never thought that this vacation would still push through. It wasn't planned it just happened when my cousin took our aunt to the airport for her flight back to Australia.Oh boy I'm glad we made it because during the short vacation period we had amazing experiences, some are even our firsts!

I've been dreaming of surfing the waves and we finally did it! It was very fun and i'm looking forward to doing it again.
So yes, I need to blog about this soon.
June last year, my mother in law and her colleagues went to Baguio City for their company outing and we joined them. It was their first time,as for us we've been there lots of times already (except baby Brianna) though it's our first time wearing the Igorot costume. Fun times :)
June 2015 we received a bad news, Lola Nena (my dad's mother) was rushed to the hospital and stayed in the ICU for a couple of days, we were all hoping for a miracle which never happened. This is our last picture together, taken during our short vacation. Who would have thought that it's the last time that i'll ever get to see her and be with her.
We again went home to La Union to attend her last night's wake and the interment the next day, our relatives from all over the country and abroad also went home to see her for the last time. After how many long years we as family got reunited again because of her, but the reason that bind us all together is now gone. Heartbreaking indeed but we already made our peace that she is now home with God, and that life must go on.

We all had a magical time at the Disney Live, we got our tickets free from Sun Postpaid.
Bought a brand new 55 inch Samsung Curved Smart TV. The owner of the Samsung store is one of our Godfathers during our wedding so we get good discounts. Let us know if you're planning to purchase any Samsung appliances in the future. Haha :)
Time passed by September came with lots of birthday celebrations including my father in law's, Tristan (our eldest) and Athena (middle child). Our 2 September babies then got an early birthday treat, they got to watch Disney Live Mickey's Music Festival! They are huge Disney fans, Disney Junior channel all day everyday. Haha! 

We still join online contests but not as often as we used to and last year we got our share of winnings and here are some of them. 

My #ComboMoTo photo entry won the Grand Prize from Pepsi's Challenge last year.
The Prize? Trip to Japan for 2 convertible to Php 100,1000 cash. We chose the cash, but we still haven't claimed it yet. According to them they are still processing the release of the cheque. This is by far our biggest winning.

October is another birthday packed month, it's my mother in law's, Jaear's and my birth month. This also marks the beginning of "Team Poreber". FYI: this blog used to be Mom-derful World my mommy blog which I started year 2013 but we just decided to combine our blogs together. "The Irate Agent" his blog plus mine equals "Team Poreber" because we believe in Forever (cheesy) Haha!. This month our blog also unlocked few milestones as we also started working with several brands, company and we also get to attend some events. Actually its just me who gets to attend the events because it's my social media accounts that we use besides my husband is quite the shy type of a guy but we both work together on the blogs content, so its a Team Work!
Thankful to have found new friends, my event buddies. Lyzhyie Bongon of
and Eihdra Gatchalian of
This month I got inked, a vain one. I was convinced to get a permanent eyebrow tattoo.
(That explains my thick brows in this photo)
Will share it with you soon.

We won Php 20,000 cash from Biogesic's Sineserye promo and they'll be featuring our story in a short film. We already blogged about this here: Biogesic will feature how Team Poreber's story started in a short film! But bad news is the showing has been delayed, according to them it will be early this year. Really looking forward to it.
November has been a blessed month as well, its my mom's and Brianna's birth month, lots and lots of celebration! Aside from that, we won a 3D2N all-expense paid trip to Miniloc/Apulit Island, El Nido Resorts Palawan. Can't wait for February, I'm so excited!

December came, a very busy month, Christmas shopping and preparations. I also attended my first ever Christmas Party with my fellow Mommy Bloggers. 

My mom also came for a visit and stayed for more than 2 weeks, took her out for some mom and daughter bonding. She went home before Christmas. 

Merry Christmas!
We are looking forward to celebrating the Holidays in my hometown next year, it's been years since the last time I celebrated it with my parents.

Wow, after going through these events all I can say is that 2015 although there may have been unpleasant happenings still it has been a very fruitful year for us. And, even though we didn't have the best start for 2016, we still have the whole year ahead of us to make up for it. I am hoping and praying that everything would fall into place. This year my main priority is my family's health and mine, being sickly is not cool at all.

This year we will still be joining online contests, as a full time mom I think this is the most productive thing I can do while juggling mommy duties. I refuse to be called a Professional Contest Joiner, but if anyone thinks of it that way I'll just have to shrug it off my shoulder, I know better. 

I know how overwhelmed I am with my duties as a mom but one thing is for sure, Blogging stays. I can always make time for it. Blogging is a passion I'd love to pursue, it is my way of expressing myself, share with you our experiences and in the future it's something that we can look back to. I'm really glad for what our blog has achieved last year, yes we do get tokens but more than that we get paid with experiences and new acquaintances. There were also some rejections but we never got discouraged. So this year we are hoping for our blog's growth, more opportunities and of course your support. 

Our friends are actually convincing us to get our own domain, we are still thinking about it and of course make our researches first. Do you think we should get our own domain? Your response will be much appreciated. :) 

Happy 2016 everyone!

Taking Gifting to the Next Level

When I was a kid, the most exciting part of Christmas was making that one extra special wish and hoping that Santa (Possibly my parents ^_~) could make that wish come true. Now that I'm all grown up and have kids of my own, I'd like to share that experience of joy and excitement not just to my family but to as many people as I can. The season of love and giving grows in our heart especially with all the Christmas songs playing in each corners of the streets, stores filled with our favorite sumptuous Bibingka and Puto Bumbong and the many malls going on sale!

The whole family is hyped with all the Christmas songs playing and decided to already decorate our home a little. We started with some simple decorations that can be made with recycled materials like ; old magazines, broken CDs and some used colored paper.

(A very advance Merry Christmas from Team Poreber)

I've been thinking of what to include in our Christmas Bucket List but couldn't really decide what to get or do for the whole family. That's when me and hubby decided to do some window shopping. What better way to get gifting ideas than asking the people who's making the actual wish right? We can practically get almost everything we might need or want this coming Christmas at any SM Supermalls. The thought itself of being able to gaze upon your wish made us want Christmas to come already.

Here's our Christmas Bucket List ala Team Poreber Style!

A mother's wish for herself always ends up being for the sake of her family. I guess that's just how a mom is and always will be. I have two things on my wish list but I already got a surprise hair makeover (for the benefit of my husband, so he can have a lovely wife ^_~.)

I would love to take my baking passion to the next level with some of these lovely equipment. I can only imagine how the kids and hubby would love my new sweet creations. Labor of love as they say. ^_^

I'm taking this gifting to the next level because there's no guessing anymore. The Christmas gift ideas can't be anymore specific as what they have shown me hahaha!

Here's hubby with his yearly wish. A brand new pair of shoes to get a kick start ahead for Christmas.

Our little boy feeling like a pro motorcyclist.

Our fairy princess wanting her own fairy doll.

and our cutie pie with a Minie Mouse stuff toy that's as tall as her!

These definitely needs some adjustments on our budget and we have no less than 2 months to make it work. Will this plan work? I guess we'll find out on my next post the week before Christmas.

We also have a tradition every year with the influence of my In laws. A way for us to give back to others every Christmas, as thanks for all the love, happiness and blessings that we receive each year. 

We normally grab a few extra grocery items, not for ourselves but for the less fortunate families in the streets. Circumstances has given those families harder trials to overcome in their lives. It's sad to see so many homeless families in some corner of streets in Manila. We know the hardship and struggles of someone trying to give a better future for his family and that’s why we do what we can to also help those people striving hard for the sake of their family.

I guess the odds are in our favor when SM Supermalls announced their Merry SM Christmas campaign. Those Holiday Gift Basket would be Love in a basket for those families.

Just in case going street by street and handing out some grocery baskets is a little bit too much, you're in luck! It would be my pleasure to inform you that SM Supermalls is once again opening it's doors towards giving joy to less fortunate children from various orphanages and charitable institutions through the SM Cares Program.

Last year we were able to be part of this heartwarming campaign which is a win win situation. You get to have one random kid experience the joy and love of a stranger through giving away 1 teddy bear and in return you get to get one for yourself or give one to your love one.

Hubby got a sweet kiss from our eldest daughter and she just love the teddy bear. It's going to be my turn this year to once again make another kid smile along with our youngest daughter as we take part of this campaign. (It's also a chance for lonely teddy at home to get a matching new teddy. ^-^)

How about it guys? Dare to take gifting to the next level? You never know, Santa might also bring you're presents to the next level by being a good boy or girl. Happy Holidays!
