Read how Shopwise and Mommy Mundo teamed up for a very nice Surp-Wise!

SHOPWISE has given me fond memories back when I was around high school age. I recall how my family and I would always go there for some delectable apple pie, fresh breads, during the time when it was very therapeutic to come to the grocery store without breaking the bank. 
Today, I am so glad to have partnered with Shopwise and Mommy Mundo for their Homewise events, where moms from all over town came to learn how they too, can be "Wise" when it came to cooking, parenting their children better and living a great life within budget. And because they were all wise, many of them walked away with wonderful freebies and prizes!
Thank you so much Mommy Mundo and Shopwise for letting me lead this empowering experience! We all learned how to make Tres Leches cake and lasagna pizza rolls! Yum! 
No one came home empty handed, everyone got a freebie and a special prize. Even moi! Look how the sweet Shopwise team gave me a pack of goodies to bring home to my not-so-little boy too!
Plus, we had to thank these lovely mommies, especially Chef Golda Liamzon who taught us how to live the good life and make good and healthy food every day while being money wise! 
We had so many mommies, and even daddies in attendance! The official count was close to 300. Wow! And now, here is a glimpse of my opening spiels video:  
And lastly, a clip where  did some pre-event voice overs... 
Thanks for "Shopping" by; do click on these other links below!

Up, up and Huawei! A thrilling time hosting for the Huawei Road show!

Huawei to go! Hover-boarding and hosting; I got to do both of these activities as I emceed for Huawei's road show, where they launched their newest smart phone! Check out this video below, where I did not just host, but I hover-boarded my way too! Yeehaw! 
Excuse me as I revel in how much effort I put in as a professional host. I mean, it's not everyday you get a host who can hover-board while on the mic while doing spiels. But hover boarding ain't my only talent; I can host while ice skating too! Read on my Shopkins on Ice post right here:

Marylaine Viernes Emcees and Skates for Shopkins on Ice!  

And below is one of the very few photos I had. I just arrived, and I could not wait to get this (road)show on the road! I had a super brief briefing, and then I was up (on stage)! 
I was just so delighted to have interacted with so many wonderful people, especially this lovely little girl named Heart... indeed, she was such a sweetheart and served as my co-host for a few minutes. 
And below here are a few other videos, starting with the opening ceremonies, where I invited people to check out our experience booths... no more hover boarding on these ones any more... 
And also we played a lot of fun games, watch! Huawei to go, everyone!

A Berry special celebration: Christmas fun at Knotts Berry Farm, Anaheim!

So, let's take a break from blogging about the fabulous and empowering events I have been so blessed to emcee for, and let's take a look back at the wonderful holiday trip I've had with my beloved family!   Here's my beloved son and sister waiting for our turn at the Ghost Rider attraction:
I've had a wonderful USA trip so far, and here's an unforgettable Christmas Day celebration in Anaheim, at the Knott's Berry theme park. Here's a few videos, starting with our Jaguar roller coaster ride:
To this day, my son has been raving about it! And here are a couple more videos, this time, at our fun train ride! 
Looking ahead. Like this cute snap of my son here below, our family and I are looking forward to more travels and to a wonderful life ahead, together! This is only one of our many, many travels and adventures! 
And now here are some members of the Peanuts Gang at Knott's Berry Farm going 'Nuts' or 'Knott's' over my boy as they welcomed him to the theme park for a fun day... 
Here's Godric trying out some raccoon hats and making an acquaintance with the town blacksmith before we roamed the park some more...
Back at the Jaguar ride... we couldn't get enough! 
Bye for now, as we will be jumping for joy for the rest of the day (and for the remainder of this blog post, LOL). And, do click these links below:

Breaking new ground: Leading the Hillsgate Pine Hills property preview and groundbreaking

“Real estate cannot be lost or stolen, nor can it be carried away. Purchased with common sense, paid for in full, and managed with reasonable care, it is about the safest investment in the world.” - F.D. Roosevelt

Boy, I hope I'd met the late great President Roosevelt, the 32nd President of the United States, who had led this great nation thru WWII and the Great Depression, to tell me this. I have joined the real estate game quite late in my life and I wouldn't say that my investments are very significant. So I am glad to be part of various opportunities to learn more about real estate, and am thankful for my numerous hosting gigs for helping me meet people and learn so much more!
 That's why I am very thankful and honored to have served as master of ceremonies for Pine Hills Residences' groundbreaking ceremony. With the savvy Hillsgate team:
Not only did we conduct a groundbreaking and ribbon-cutting ceremony; we also entrenched a time capsule unto the property grounds. 
On a separate but related occasion, I also emceed for their sales drive and press conference, with their  many esteemed partners, brokers and of course, loyal clients in attendance: 
 Here's a clip of me hosting the company's sales drive and press conference:
What a beautiful day, and what a breathtaking view... 
Lastly, here's an amateur clip when I hosted the early morning groundbreaking ceremonies:

In on the covert tradition, one with the Masons for the Brotherhood's Centennial Celebration

Dan Brown, you got nothing on me! Finally, I'm in on the ancient secret of Masonic Order, serving as the Master of Ceremonies for their public installation of officers (Masonic Lodge Noli Me Tangere Lodge 42) and their brotherhood's centennial anniversary in the Philippines. 
Being a writer and an avid reader, I am still giddy about this experience, finding that underneath all the conspiracy theories about this brotherhood, they are actually just men of intelligence, honor, nobility with a loads of fun and modernity.  They even had cake! Like a wedding cake. How cool is that? Guess you can say this was a wedding of past tradition and modern fervor! 
I thank Ate Joy Uy, the wife of their newly installed leader, Jay Uy. She had put in a lot of effort here, she's a successful career woman but an even more successful wife and mother. 
She hand-picked me to be the emcee of this very important milestone in their family's life, and most especially her husband, Most Worshipful Master Jay Uy, most who truly deserves this great honor! 
Jay and Joy's two daughters are just so adorable too; I just loved our OOTD! It's not every day that I get to rock the mic in a Filipiniana... 
The event was truly one-of-a-kind, memorable and exhilarating. Not to mention the food was so amazing! Lechon, fresh sashimi, all the things I love! I can't recall if I loved the hosting part or the eating part more.
 I did not have a team along to take proper videos, so I got whoever was available. Warning: these are such terrible videos, but what the heck; I just have to get those videos up here and out there:
Thanks for reading my post today, and don't forget to just click on below:

It's an honor to be alongside these four lovely women as Smart Parenting unveiled the Smart Moms Seal of Approval! From left to right are the three gorgeous Belo Baby endorsers, Patty Laurel Filart, Kelly Misa Fernandez and Nicole Hernandez The fourth lady, right beside me is no less than the lovely EIC of Smart Parenting, Leah San Jose.

Hollywood glam at the Maxfreight Logistics & Multifreight Consolidator System thanksgiving gala!

It was the first time ever for me to attend a party where the guests and suppliers were gifted with cash gifts and were part of the raffle. That was how generous Maxfreight Logistics, Inc. and its mother company, Multifreight Consolidator System, Inc. were! 
They espoused a splendid Hollywood themed affair, with every detail of the program curated to reflect the company's values...
Here's my photo at their really beautiful old Hollywood cinema inspired design, the type you'd see in Reno, downtown Las Vegas and even in San Diego... great job to Paramint events, led by my very good friends since my grade school days, Jan and Paula Sebial! 
And another snap, truly reminiscent of old Hollywood... 
So honored to be handpicked as master of ceremonies leading this fĂȘte: 20 years dominating the industry; this is no small feat! 
Lastly, here's the only video I got for the evening as right after hosting, I then had fun dancing with the company leaders and employees!
Cheers! And please click on the links below!
