When A Sale is Really A Sale

By:  Ana del Rosario
Update on this Post:  Mommy Mundo decided to cancel this weekend's sale due to typhoon Glenda. Visit our Facebook page for the next schedule which will happen in August of this year.

I am not a shopping person.  As a Marketing Manager, I always get invites to kiddie events and bazaars for moms.  And even if I am the first to hear about a great bargain, I rarely leave the events place with an item bought from that event.  My friends say that I am the hardest person to sell to (except food!). But thank God for giving me friends and relatives  who shop for me and a daughter who constantly reminds me to update my wardrobe with a big PLEASE at the end of her sentence.  Without them, I would probably be owning hideous and outdated clothes for the rest of my life.

Facade of Sale

On the first day of last year’s Mommy Mundo’s Clearance Clearout Sale, I just shrugged my shoulders when my staff reported that mommies as early as 10:00 a.m. were already shopping and left the sale around noon with bags of items in their arms.

On the second day, it rained really hard.  And I told myself, “here goes the sale”!  Despite heavy rains,  shoppers kept arriving and left the room after an hour or two with their full eco-shopping bags.  Hmmm….

Wonder world of Toys

On the last day,  my co-workers spent their break time shopping and raved about the stuff inside.  Everyone’s “panic buying”.  What?!  There must be something in that room.  I went inside then the shopping bug hit me.

Goody’s Hair Accessories at 20-30% off.  If I remember correctly, I also received a sample product after my purchase.

Which statement romper best fits your baby?

Too bad I was not able to take a photo of Little Luee’s Locker’s jammies which I bought for only Php100-150 a pair.

Mommy Mundo will be holding another Clearance Clearout sale this year from July 18 to 20 (part 2 in August).   Learning from last year’s experience, I will check out the sale items on the first day.  Home court advantage!  Join me this year and let’s explore the sale together.

Ten Reasons Why You Should Hold A Birthday Party in Fun Ranch

Parents like us always get excited about our children’s birthdays.   We love planning for their parties and believe it or not, some start planning even before their child is born.  As we are in the business of celebrations, parents often ask us why they should hold their birthday parties with us.  We asked past clients even those in our employ for answers and came up with the top ten reasons why you should hold your birthday party in Fun Ranch.

New Facade

 

1.  WE HAVE EVERYTHING YOU NEED Talking to different suppliers add up to the hectic planning process of a party.  We are a one-stop party shop.  We have everything you need aside from food.  We can book a great host and magician for you, decorate your room and customize your invitation.  And if we don’t have what you are looking for, we can try and help you find it.

2.  KIDDIE THEMED AMBIENCE  What better place to hold your child’s birthday party than at Fun Ranch, with its kid-friendly attractions like rides and indoor playgrounds?  One look and you know it’s for kids.  Do keep in mind that it’s a child’s birthday party. Overview

3.  NO ENTRANCE FEE/ NO ROOM RENTAL FEE Food is a must in any party.  We want you to focus on what food to serve your guests and what you think they like.  We will only charge you for your food order and not for entry nor for the use of the room. 4

4.  THEMED FUNCTION ROOMS A fun looking room adds up to the excitement of guests.  Our all-time favorite themed rooms like barnyard, aquatic and sports give you the vibe you want for a fun and great celebration. We also have several themed backdrops and party decors.

5.  YOUR OWN PLAYGROUND Not all guests come on time and we call this “Filipino” time.  Kids can easily get bored while waiting for the program to begin.  With this in mind, we built a playground in our function rooms for your kiddie guests’ additional enjoyment. DSC_0083

6.  PRIVACY We know that you are sometimes obliged to do fun things during a party like singing or dancing.  That’s normal.  However, it’s embarrassing when there are unfamiliar diners watching while you bring out the child in you.  With this in mind, we let you exclusively use our function room so you can be what you want to be in the presence of your closest loved ones.

7.  YOU WILL NOT RUN OUT OF FOOD It’s hard to estimate the number of guests who will show up.  To rely on RSVP’s is an option but not reliable enough.  The best thing about an on-site kitchen is that your guests will never get hungry should more people than expected show up.  We always have more than enough stock of the usual kiddie party food. MainB Buffet

8.  THE BEST ENTERTAINMENT We’ve partnered with professional Magicians to entertain all your party guests.  And we mean ALL.  If invisibility cloaks do not appeal to you, an interactive Bubble or a jaw dropping Acrobat show will do the trick.  We have a long list of entertainers and continue to discover new talents.

9.  SECURITY You can entertain your guests with confidence because CCTV cameras are installed in every room while security personnel are posted at the door.  While in the thick of things, color-coded stickers can also help you identify invited guests.

10.  THE FUN NEVER ENDS! The end of your program is not an ending to a Fun Ranch celebration.  The party continues with our rides, indoor playgrounds and other activities for everyone’s enjoyment.  Outside is a one huge playground for kids!

Boo-Time!

What makes Halloween so special that moms take time to dress up their kids?  The candies, cute costumes and memories they can keep forever.

Awesome kids with their parents came to Boo-Time, last year’s Halloween party.  Tickets were sold out!  If we had true magic, we would have made our rooms bigger to accommodate everyone.

It’s always a challenge to make Halloween extra-special.

We introduced the “Tikbalang” to our amazed attendees through a story.  We also gave Brix, last year’s Junior Kadabra Cup Champion, exposure by having him perform magic to the delight of the kids.

Their expressions of happiness are enough to make our day.

Everyone (yes, even the parents) brought home loots—and we mean candies, drinks, snacks, prizes and a lot more courtesy of our generous sponsors.  Fun Ranch is truly a happy place because Kids Rule Here!

Kiddie Magic

Fun Ranch, Alabang hosted the 1st kiddie version of Kadabra Cup last September 10, 2011.

Butterfly magic by Mika.

May the force be with you.

Ella, our baby.  She’s only seven years old.

He’s floating in the air.

Kids also enjoyed the live animal encounter provided by Zoomanity Group’s Residence Inn, Tagaytay.

Sponsors went full blast too in our Kids Division.  Lucky raffle winners received pairs of slippers, entrance tickets, overnight accommodation and umbrellas.

We had so much fun working with the kids.  Their parents deserved an A+ for training them well.  Family members went all out by coming to the event and cheer for their kin.

And the winners are…

Brix (1st place), ella (2nd place) and Kevin (3rd place).

Jestler and Brix, Kadabra Cup’s 2011 Champions.

It was truly an amazing night for all families who watched both shows.  Congratulations to all our winners!

A Magical Sunday

Kadabra Cup is a family dinner show and annual magic competition organized by Fun Ranch.  It is usually held during the National Heroes Day long weekend.   For this year, we decided to have two categories, Senior and Junior Divisions.  The former was held at Ortigas while the latter at our branch in Westgate, Alabang.

Guess what popped out of these cage and box?

Girls.:)

And snakes.

Plus ten for being nationalistic. Check out our Philippine flag on his magical box.

This is Gina, the only lady magician in the group.

“Leodini”, Ruther Urquia and Dennis Daco served as technical judges.  Mommy blogger Joy Mendiola and Isidro Laforteza of Zoomanity Group represented the muggles.  For non-Harry Potter fans, muggles are non-magical people like us.:)

Judging was tough.

Kadabra Cup is our favorite event.:)

Guess who received the loudest applause?

Golden Show’s Abraham Velasco .  He was the show’s intermission number yet the kids wanted to vote him “Crowd Favorite”.   We give him a perfect 10 for showmanship.

Kadabra Cup is a perfect bonding event for the entire family.

We raffled off prizes courtesy of our generous sponsors.  Star Cruises gave away a free Singapore Cruise for 4 to one lucky winner.  Havaianas provided free pairs of slippers.  Zoomanity Group, the company behind Zoobic Safari, Pet Me Home at Tiendesitas and a lot more,  gave away free tickets to their zoo and overnight accommodation gift certificates.

Cherifer Immunomax and Memorx made sure everyone went home with free samples of their vitamins and premium item.

The show ended a bit late because we chose not to cut off Golden Show’s performance.    And the winner is…

Jestler the Magician.  And this is his signature split.

It was truly his lucky night because he bagged all the special awards like “oldest magician” and “crowd favorite”.

Beverage partner Pepsi provided our major prizes together with other sponsors like Acacia Hotel and Astoria Plaza Hotel.

Kadabra Cup is a great way to discover new talent.  As early as now, we are already making plans for next year’s show that would include changes our fans will surely love.
