images instantly come to mind when you think of a kiddie cooking workshop, and
the fact that it’s given for FREE was a really great bonus for parents like us.
Yes, you read that right; Easiyo Yoghurt recently conducted a free hands-on
cooking workshop for kids held at the Global Culinary and Hospitality Academy
in Bel-Air, Makati under the tutelage of chef Angela Ventura. The moment I
heard about it, I immediately asked Kyle if he wanted to sign up because he
liked to help in the kitchen and he had previous cooking lessons before from
another culinary school that he truly enjoyed.

contests for kids are a trend nowadays but Easiyo’s cooking workshop was all
about cooperation and teamwork. My nephew/adopted son Kyle was lucky enough to
attend such workshop. The kids were taught the basic cooking lessons as well as
preparing recipes from desserts to main courses.
Everyone's abuzz over the kitchen recipes.

kids were broken into groups of four under the directions of Chef Angela
Ventura and her staff. They cooked different meals incorporating Easiyo Yoghurt
on each recipe. They had prepared Chicken Pork Adobo the Easiyo Way, Tuna

of the food was precut for the young chefs (no knife handling was involved) and
the actual stove “cooking” was done by the kids with an adult supervision. The
kids also got a firsthand look at how food was actually cooked. Kyle said they were
taught to clean up too as they go along, how to see the difference between
what’s uncooked and cooked.

nine-year-old hyperactive Kyle said he enjoyed the workshop so much. “It’s fun
knowing how food are being prepared and I liked the adrenaline rush that goes
through in working at the kitchen,” he shares. Kyle also liked that Chef Angela
let the kids cook on their own, without constantly attending to them or taking

would’ve wanted to perpetuate the moment. What he has learned was something
he’ll probably take with him forever. He obviously loved the said cooking
workshop for kids. Apart from the cooking skills he has learned, he’s able to
gain new friends, learned cleanliness, camaraderie, cooperation and teamwork
along with it. J

As a young child, I've always been fascinated with the story of Snow White. Growing up, it’s been a favorite bedtime story of mine. I vividly recall I used to play with fancy mirrors and pretend I’m some princess as I utter the famous line from the story, “Mirror, mirror on the wall, who’s the fairiest of them all?” Being born with naturally brown skin complexion or “morena”, I used to envy those whom we call mestiza because of their flawlessly white skin.
As I developed into a fine young lady, I learned that having fair skin makes a woman more attractive and it further gives one the extra confidence that most women needs. I've tried a lot of other skin whitening products to help me realize my dream on having that fair skin that I've always wanted to possess. But I've always been disappointed upon trying those stuff, they were all like promises that seemed to be broken, because none of them ever really worked and they were not effective at all. Until I discovered Skin White. To be honest, I was hesitant at first to give it a try since I've probably tried all whitening prodcuts there is in the market. But I decided to use it just the same because it has worked for most of my friends. I figured, if it worked for them, it must also work for me too.
To give you a better idea on what Skin White is all about, watch this video:
What made Skin White different from any other ordinary whitening products? Skin White has SYNCHROWHITE ACTION that works in four different ways: It whitens the skin's surface, it reduces formation of new dark pigments at its source, nourishes skin with Vitamins and it protects skin against toxins and UV rays. What product could be anything better than that?
My friends and I
After my initial use of Skin White, I immediately saw some improvements on my skin tone--it had become lighter than usual. And I couldn't contain my joy so I told my friends about it, these were the same friends who told me about this amazing product. I started using the product regularly and included it on my daily beauty routine. At first, I would get feedbacks from people who knew me as a child, and they would casually mention and ask me why do I look "blooming?"
I do not have a boyfriend yet but I know with my fairer skin now, I could have the confidence that I need if I finally meet my prince charming one day. He'll surely be smitten by my fair skin and sweet smile. He'll not be able to resist my blushing white skin. And when that finally happens, I'll always be grateful to Skin White for giving me the fair skin I've always wanted as a kid and for making my prince charming to notice me.
You too could experience how Skin White can do wonders for your skin complexion, it's the safest and easiest way to be fair! Get a fairer skin and gain the confidence that you need! They even have a summer promo which you could join and win exciting prizes!
There's even a '"kilig video" about the wonders of Skin White. Check this out:
can honestly say, I may not be as fair as Snow White, but I could be as
confident as a princess because I finally have the fair skin I had
always dreamed of. I could face any mirror and say that I may not be the
fairiest but I know I am fair in my own right! And I could proudly say
that with Skin White, I can be the fairiest of them all!
Post Script: I do hope Nuffnang and Skin White will make me happier if I could make the cut for those invited bloggers to watch Snow White and the Huntsman on the silver screen. I liked Kristen Stewart's fairly smooth skin and I can't wait to see her upclose even on the big screen!
