Here is another one of my Instagram posts as I waited for the Screening Party to start.

The Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards 2015 Screening Party in Manila was awesome! Resorts World Manila was filled with excited, happy and energized kids (and parents too!).

There were photo booths, toy stores set up on the cinema lobby, loot bags, Nick character mascots and fun games with great prizes before the screening which further made the children all the more excited and happy. In between awards or during commercial breaks, there were also games played.

The Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards show aired on the Nickelodeon channel and highlighted the best names in TV, movie, music, sports and other categories. The children who were at the Screening Party watched the awards on a simultaneous broadcast on the big screen. They also received a VIN treatment: Very Important Nickster 😀

The Nickelodoen Kids’ Choice Awards 2015 was hosted by Nick Jonas who serenaded the crowd at the beginning of the show. The KCAs 2015 was star-studded, featuring remarkable performances from Iggy Azalea and Jennifer Hudson and teen sensation 5 Seconds of Summer. Celebrities also made a special appearance, much to the delight of the audience. Some of this year’s winners, as voted by Nickelodeon viewers, included “Hunger Games” star Liam Hemsworth, Emma Stone for “The Amazing Spiderman” and Angelina Jolie who claimed Favourite Villain for “Maleficent.”

Our very own Teen King Daniel Padilla was nominated as Favourite Asian Act, and although he didn’t quite swipe the orange blimp, he did win the Slime-A-Star award, beating nominees from Brazil, the United Kingdom, Latin America, and New Zealand.

The Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards 2015 Screening Party, presented by Toy Kingdom and co-sponsored by Kinder Joy, Shopkins, and Swift Mighty Meaty Hotdog, Nickelodeon’s cable partner CignalTV and venue partner Resorts World Manila, was nothing less than epic.

I’m sure the kids couldn’t wait for next year’s slime season, coz if 2015 was any indication, they’re in for an even bigger treat in the years to come!

Samsung Washing Machines for your Happy Homes

I admit, laundry chores are something I do not look forward to especially when I am swamped with other things that need tending to. On good days, I love doing the laundry because it gives me time to reflect on some things while I sort the clothes and while I fold these after the task. These days though, I have laundry-free days because the eldest child has taken the chores as her responsibility during her term break.

Samsung Washing Machines

Even though we have a washing machine to use,I still have to soak the whites, the uniform because these need a lot of soaking and handwashing. I got surprised to learn that there is a perfect washing machine for my family and our laundry needs: a Samsung Fully Automatic WA4000HH.

Here are the reasons why:

  •  ActivDualWash which has a wash sink with a built-in side water jet. The wash sink provides a convenient and dedicated space to hand-wash delicate items and pre-wash heavily soiled clothes before regular wash. The built-in side water can be started and stopped with a simple press of a button for maximum convenience. COOL!!
  • Wobble Technology that allows laundry to be done with less time, efforts and worry.

Families should consider their needs and lifestyle to suit the washing machine that will cater to the laundry chores like washing the delicates, separating the whites and the colored clothes, pre-soaking stained items and ensuring that the clothes are still in good quality after frequent washing AND that the washing machine itself is better than others to last a long time.

What are the different factors to consider when buying a washing machine?

  • TIME. The longer the boosting time of the machine, the more energy is wasted thus an increase in the electric bill.
  • TEMPERATURE. More energy is wasted when higher temperature is used and the risk that the clothes will be damaged is greater.
  • MECHANICAL ACTION. Too much of this and the fabric gets damaged.
  • DETERGENT ACTION.Too much detergent leaves residue that could damage the clothes and become a threat to the environment.

Some factors to consider in buying a washing machine:

Samsung Food ShowCase Refrigerator

You know life just got better when you can organize your kitchen better and thereby work more efficiently saving on time, energy and lessening exasperation over spoiled food, high electricity consumption and having to deal with disorganization.

The new Samsung Food ShowCase Refrigerator gives you all that and more. Designed to provide optimum use of space to make kitchen life more organized, looking for something in the refrigerator has never been as easy as it was before. To parents with children who like to rummage through the typical refrigerator in search for an apple to munch on or a pizza to heat for snacks, you know what this means, right? Some food containers are opened and not closed properly, some even spill (the horrors!) and some are switched in location.

Even chef couple and Samsung Digital Appliances ambassadors, Rolando and Jackie Laudico note that preparing dishes both at home and their newly-renovated restaurant, Guevarra’s, there is a difference on how an organized refrigerator makes work easier and smooth flowing.

When preparing dishes at our restaurant, it’s always important to have our ingredients readily available. With the high kitchen traffic, we can’t afford to waste time looking for ingredients as the viands should always be readily available for our customers.” said Chef Jac “While at home, we always aim to prepare healthy yet delicious meals for our children so it’s important for us to have a refrigerator that keeps healthy produce like vegetables fresh so we won’t have to constantly replace them.”

Samsung Digital Appliances therefore created a refrigerator that helps families keep their food organized and fresh but also looks good in the kitchen.

Be more organized

The Samsung Food ShowCase Refrigerator features two layers that optimize the use of space and provide clearly defined zones for frequently used food. It has three functional zones

  • The Cooking Zone stores frequently used items, such as eggs, cheese and sauce bottles;
  • The Family Zone stores items for the entire family like beverages and fruit;
  • The Kids Zone stores children’s snacks and is located at the lower part of the Showcase considering the height of children.

Customized storage space for everyone? Cool!

Located deeper within the refrigerator, behind the outer Showcase is the perfect place to preserve easily perishable items like vegetables, fruits and meats.

 

More Space.

The Samsung Food ShowCase Refrigerator has more space, to provide the family’s differing food preferences. The daily food items and ingredients like snacks, beverages, sauces are put in areas and at heights to determine optimal locations.

Ice Master

There is an Ice Master built into the door, to provide extra space by freeing two additional shelves in the freezer. Yes, with conventional freezers, if your ice cube trays do not have covers, sometimes these get contaminated with other food items. 

The Ice and Water Dispenser feature gives you chilled filtered water at just a touch of a button.

Slide and Fold Shelf

The Slide & Fold shelf adds extra flexibility to storage because it can easily be removed, folded up or raised and lowered to fit items you might want to put in. There is really no wasted space.

Save time

With the Samsung Food ShowCase Refrigerator, all frequently used items have a designated, easily accessible space.

Saving time in food preparation is very important, especially for moms like me who doesn’t need to go through the different zones in the refrigerator in search for just one item.

Keep food fresher for longer

Food also stays fresher for longer in the Samsung Food ShowCase Refrigerator. Its unique features retain cool air within the refrigerator even if the Showcase door is frequently opened, and ensure an even and constant temperature from top to bottom, front to back. This assures customers that food stays fresh, no matter where it is stored or how often the door is opened.

For sure, the Samsung Food ShowCase Refrigerator is a premium home appliance. Equipped with a Digital Inverter Technology, this refrigerator provides energy savings efficiency and guarantees durability.

There is a 10 year warranty on the compressor.

Truly, one of the most important items you can have in your kitchen, both at home and, in our case, at work is a refrigerator that keeps your environment organized.” said Chef Lau “Which is why we are happy to have the Samsung Food ShowCase to make our kitchen life easier.”

The Samsung Food ShowCase Refrigerator (with Ice and Water Dispenser) is priced at Php 139,900 and Php 129,900 for the basic model.

Available at all authorized Samsung dealers nationwide.
