Summer Monde Mamon-It-Yourself Bonding time with the kids.

Summer is a time for some relaxation and fun, especially for the kids. I'm constantly looking for activities that my children can do during the summer. However, I always find the ones that they usually don’t enjoy. As life just zooms by, I feel like I don’t get as much time as I would like to have. I want to make sure the time we spend together is fun and engaging for all of us. 

This summer, I found a new way to get to your family's soft spot. Monde Mamon-It-Yourself.

"I am caring and only want what’s best for my children. It’s important for families to discover things together. I’ve discovered Mamon-It-Yourself as a great family activity."



Last April 5, 2014, the kids and I went to Yardstick at the Universal LMS building in Makati for the Monde Summer Mamon-It-Yourself Activity that bonds the whole family and it’s something that I can do with my kids. Not only does this bring entertainment for the kids, but you can also find your kids’ hidden creative talent. I for one saw that my boys are very creative and talented when it comes to their Mamon-It-Yourself creations.
My family loves the Monde Special Mamon and Monde Special Cream Puffs. The mamon is yummy on its own!
We were treated with a good cup of brewed cappuccino from Yardstick Coffee.
Cappuccino makes a perfect combination with the Monde Special Mamon.
Monde Special Mamon is made with real fresh eggs, imported wheat flour and milk. Baked to be delicious! 


The top of a Monde Special Mamon is like a mini-canvas, ready for the artist in you and your child, to paint on.


Enjoy Monde Special Mamon with your favorite toppings! Mangoes, Grapes, Kiwi, Cheese, and Strawberries. 
You can put some icing on top.
More of your familiar favorites, Monde Nissin snacks, can also be chosen for your toppings.
Candy Pellets, Gummy Bears, Mallows, Choco Cookies, Corn Flakes, Graham, Choco Candies and Sprinkles. 
Monde Mamon-It-Yourself is the best form of art. It will help develop your child's inner skills and creativity.
Delamar Arias, a mother and also a DJ of Monster Radio RX 93.1, hosted the event.
Genevieve Dela Pena, Media and Public Relations Manager at Monde Nissin Corporation welcomed and shared us her childhood memories. She said that making something together could be a habit and tradition. She also shared that her mother made sure that activities together is a time well spent with family.
Chef Mitchie Sison showed us her way to prepare and also taught us some decorating tips.
We also learned how to make frosting and how to apply it on the Mamon.

Chef Mitchie Sison shared her analogy; frosting is like putting on makeup. You can beautify it, or make it more elegant. You can make it pretty or creamy. 

Decorating can be a very therapeutic activity that can help relieve some stress. I love decorating Monde Special Mamon because it has a flat and even base. Perfect, if you want to be creative with your toppings.


We were taught how to frost our Mamon with a piping bag. It was very easy and the techniques were very helpful.

Kids are on summer vacation so this is can be the perfect bonding moment that you can have. Who doesn't love something that is sweet, has frosting, color, and texture?  
The design choices are endless, from simple and fun, to truly elegant
An appealing way to have your kids enjoy creating topping on their mamon.

It was nice to finally meet the beautiful blogger behind Spoiled Mummy! (http://thespoiledmummy.com)
Grace Barbers-Baja, like me, she's also a loving and hands-on mother to three children. 

I am such a big fan of her blog and on this event she shared us some recipes and tips on what to decorate with our Mamon. She showed us how to make the Mamon healthier.

She also talked about how she grew up eating mamon. She remembered that her mom sends her mamon as a snack.

The first recipe she showed us is, how to make Peanut Butter Banana Mamon that is healthier and Mamon Ensaymada. 
and her very own what she called "Spoiled Mummy Mamon" using everything she loves, Chocolate and Strawberry. 

Our Mamon-It-Yourself Kit. The possibilities are endless.

Practice makes perfect to make the perfect frosting. This looks like the perfect frosting on the Monde Special Mamon.
Thank you Chef Mitchie Sison for the helpful tips!  

Families bonding over our favorite Monde Special Mamon and toppings...how can it get better?


Make them feel loved with Monde Mamon-It-Yourself Bonding moment.
It’s a beautiful thing about all this, is the wonderful bonding that is happening between all of us. These are the moments that create sweet memories.

Our Family's Masterpiece 

Decorating a mamon is fun; it’s also incredibly rewarding and can be an educational experience for my children. 

Mamon-It-Yourself encourages creativity and is a great way for children to learn how to express them. Seeing what they've created creates a huge sense of achievement for the child. This is a positive way to build confidence with their abilities and promote healthy self-esteem. 




We took home this scrumptious decorating kit that includes everything we need to decorate our favorite Monde Special Mamon at home, so we can share the fun with family and friends! Making homespun memories has never been easier with Monde Mamon-It-Yourself. 

The day was special as it is but Monde just put the icing on top when they showed us a surprise video dedicated to moms. The video showed our kids dedicating a special message for us (mothers who attended the event). That night my kids surprised me with a big hug, a kiss, and another message "Super Love you, mama!" I guess it shows how much they enjoyed being with me at the event.
 
Thank you so much Monde!  

Take home the fun and do your Mamon-It-Yourself at home with your family and friends. There are so many creative ideas on how to Mamon-It-Yourself. Fluffy goodness below, your favorite toppings on top. 


I would love to see your family's creations, join the social media conversation with hashtag #MondeSummerMIY or #MamonItYourself

  3. nice bonding moments w/ your kids ms. Rochelle, halatang close na close ka sa mga kids mo,.
    sana paglaki ng baby ko maging close din kami at nagawa yung katulad ng bonding mo w/ your kids,.
    ang ng naisip ng MONDE MAMON, nkakatuwa kasi instead na magbabake pa, ang nangyari eh decorate your own mamon,. dyan makikita yung pagiging creative ng mga kids,.

  11. I like all the variants MONDE can offer... but upon reading your article I can personally say that seeing you and your Boys spend that wonderful time is what I like most.. I am caught with that smiles and wish that if ever I am given a chance to have my own kids in the future I would definitely do the same... As what I learned from church, our KIDS/Children will most likely remember the experiences when we were with them, than the things we give them.. truly this moment with "MAMON-IT-YOURSELF" from MONDE is one of the treasured experience your little prince have...

  80. It's a nice activity and all.. i don't want to be a party pooper but adding all those calories in mamon wouldn't really be healthy.

    I like that it's a bonding activity with kids but the amount of sugar in those treats can really go high.

    ReplyDelete
