Jolly Cow Chocolate Milk: A #NewDiscovery for Mommies

Jolly Cow Chocolate Milk: A #NewDiscovery for Mommies!

Motherhood is always special and unique – it is an endless journey that’s filled with a lot of new discoveries in every season or occasion. Additionally, they’re the one who makes the joy complete with memories of hugs, giggles, and grins that leaves a mark all days of her kid’s life.
In the digital age, most moms want to share their experience and journey as a mother to other people – sharing their parenting hacks, relationship advice to matters of the heart and home, and new discoveries – through blogging.

For Annalyn Zolgman, a mom blogging for 13 years and a business owner at the same time, finding something new for her kids is always what she wants to share to her followers.

I’m a hands-on mom but I also make it a point to keep my schedule balanced and on track with the trends for my family. I want to keep my followers updated with the trend or what’s the best food for them to try or eat during their recess,

shares mommy Annalyn.
Jolly Cow Chocolate Milk: A #NewDiscovery for Mommies

New Discovery
Just like Zolgman, most mommies are always in search of something delicious, fun, and healthy for their kids, that’s why it’s no wonder they’re the first person in the know about things worth discovering. Being a super mom requires a lot of talent in pleasing the discerning palates and cravings of their family.

A group of moms with their kids were gathered for a taste of this creamilicious drink that might be their new discovery. The fun begins when kids described their first sip as ‘clouds of heaven’, ‘super chocolatey’, and ‘yummy’.

Their new discovery is all about Jolly Cow Chocolate Milk sourced from Europe. A chocolate milk that has chocolicious taste, made from 100% pure cow’s milk and real cocoa.

Jolly Cow Chocolate Milk is one of the best discoveries I uncovered this year. I can also enjoy it with different types of milkshakes, smoothies, and popsicles. I can’t wait for my other mommy followers to also discover this for their kids,

Zolgman proudly shared.

Everyone loves Jolly Cow Chocolate Milk’s rich and creamy quality, both kids and all the family members can’t get enough of enjoying it at any time of the day. Jolly Cow Chocolate Milk is one of the best new discoveries of most moms to their kids, since one of their simple pleasure is getting to enjoy a chocolate milk that tastes so good. Although trends come and go, a classic and creamy chocolate milk is always a treat.

WATTPAD SEASON ENDER PRESENTS: Just the Strings

After a brief hiatus, former PBB sweethearts Cora Waddell and Luis Hontiveros will team up, once again, for the season ender of WATTPAD PRESENTS entitled, Just The Strings.  Based on the Wattpad novel by Beeyoch, this is the second book of the author’s “Just” series that has captured millions of Wattpad readers and is, in fact, the most-awaited TV adaptation this year.

Just The Strings is the story of Imo (Cora Wadell), a quintessential “emo” girl whose life evolves around books and underground music.  Her so-called miniscule world becomes large in all proportions when she accidentally rode on the wrong car, thinking it was her UBER ride, which is being driven by the school heartthrob and basketball star, Saint (Luis Hontiveros).  This chance meet-up leads to a blossoming romance despite Imo’s eternal infatuation with her childhood best friend Parker, who is played by Starstruck finalist, James Teng.  Imo is also ruptured by the fact that both Saint and Parker are linked with other girls but in some such way, also baited by Imo’s kindness and whimsical character.

KILIG PA MORE?

Whose string will Imo be attached with?  Who is “the one”?  Her long-time best friend Parker or Saint, who gave her worth and romance?  Or will there be . . . just the strings?  This episode will surely bring a lot of kilig for everyone, both young and old.

Also starring Chris Leonardo, Jefferlyn Serrano, Ruth Lopez-Dee and Sophia Reyes.  Written by Mark Ghosn and Fyodor Macanda, under Firestarters Productions, INC. and directed by award-winning director Isabel Quesada, catch WATTPAD Presents Just The Strings #JTSonTV5 on Saturday, 9PM on TV5.

Home is where change begins

Elevate home life this New Year with Haier appliances

Every New Year comes new resolutions, but before laying down any health, relationship, or financial goal for 2017, take a good look at your home.

“How we organize our homes reflect how we see ourselves,” said Joseph Alexis Bandol, Haier Philippines’ Director for Product Marketing. “Surrounding our homes with our dreams and aspirations can inspire us to work towards what we want to become.”

A New Year makeover is the perfect opportunity to transform our homes into spaces that motivate us to accomplish positive changes in our lives.

Let’s start with the most practical elements: appliances. Older models are often less energy efficient than more modern counterparts. Newer designs also come with improved functionalities as well as better aesthetics.

Appliances play a vital role in raising quality of life—a core concept behind the innovations of global electronics leader Haier. Here are some of the brand’s appliances that have been designed to elevate home life to inspired living.

Ultra HD TV

With four times the resolution of full high-definition television, 4K TVs bring unbelievable visual clarity that makes TV watching no different from looking out the window.

To further heighten the experience, Haier’s 4K Ultra HD LED TV comes with a 48-inch screen along with an upscaling feature, auto volume leveler, and power-saving technology.

Inverter Refrigerator

Unlike traditional refrigerators, inverter models consume electricity by half or even less by minimizing energy consumption when temperatures are already optimal.

Haier takes this up a notch with inverter compressors equipped with Flexible Double Frequency conversion technology to cut power use to less than 0.1 watts when idle—the lowest in the industry.

Green Air Conditioning

It’s time to replace those clunky energy-guzzling air conditioners with units that save on electricity. Even at 0.5 horsepower, Haier’s window-type ACs can cool a bedroom without dramatically increasing the utility bill.

These air conditioners also use eco-friendly refrigerant to cool homes while lowering environmental impact. The compact, space-saving design further adds modern elegance to any space.

Automatic Washing Machine

Laundry day doesn’t have to be another time-consuming chore. A large-capacity, fully automatic top-load washing machine can reduce the effort needed to clean a week’s worth of dirty clothes.

For added convenience, Haier’s large-capacity automatic washers are designed with a Tub Dry feature and Magic Lint Filter for easy maintenance, as well as 10 water level options and eight washing programs to accommodate different volumes of laundry.

Cooking Appliances

Good kitchen efficiency means having an easier time following a healthier diet. With Haier’s 2,100-watt induction cooker, you can prepare nutritious meals with no worries thanks to different pre-settings for various cooking styles.

For busy days, a 23-liter microwave oven from Haier will let you cook simple, hassle-free meals through six power levels so you won’t have to resort to fast food when you’re on the go.

“Positive change starts at home. The small improvements we make at home can help create an environment that encourages us to become better people, not just for ourselves but also for others,” Bandol said.

Welcome New Year with a home that inspires good living. For more details, visit www.haier.com/ph.
