Ajinomoto launches Virtual Experience: Be More where students and homemakers can learn about food safety, sustainability, and more!

Going on field trips or educational tours is one of the most exciting ways to learn. Before the pandemic, food factory tours were widely used as an avenue for interactive learning for students aspiring to be part of the industry. To replicate this activity, Ajinomoto Philippines Corporation (APC) brings its factory tour online with the launch of  The Ajinomoto Virtual Experience: Be More ,   this time not only targeting students but homemakers as well. Aside from a detailed tour around Ajinomoto’s factory, the virtual space is also packed with kitchen tips and games that everybody will enjoy.   “Meeting eager participants on factory tours is one of the things we miss during these times. More than sharing what we do, the tour has been an avenue for us to educate about food safety and proper nutrition, as well as to share our advocacy on environmental sustainability,” says Roann Co, APC’s General Manager of Marketing and Public Relations. “Now that we’re bringing it online, we are excite

The Power of Hug

My kids and I have a love and hate relationship and happens every single day. Our day starts fine until they both find a single toy hidden under their pillows and suddenly would trigger the alarm. Then there goes the early morning fight and toddler argument. Sometimes when they fight I would normally ignore them because they have a way on how to make amends. But they have fights, which makes me furious which involves physical fight.

When I get mad, I make it a point that I explain it to them. Well of course it includes their feign cry and drama. I don’t understand why they are very good at it. After the mini chaos I make sure that there will be hugs and kisses.

One time while I was busy setting up the table for dinner, I noticed that there was unusual silence from the kids’ room, which was already going on for 15 minutes. You probably know what happens behind that silence right?

When I opened their door, I saw A on top of the table dismantling their entertainment system. She already removed the cables attached to the TV, speakers and player. Prior to that, I already warned her not to touch anything as it may cause accident, but none of which was effective. Then, it happened again. She was really testing my patience.

I was mad. She felt that I was mad and her face was sorry and kept looking away. I was telling her not to do it again because it was dangerous to touch those cables. She kept looking at the door of the CR thinking that J would go out and rescue her. But no J went outside.


Then suddenly she hugged me tightly while I was waiting for her to look at my face. She just hugged me for a minute and held my face with her tiny palm and uttered some gibberish words and her facial expression was as if trying to convince me on something I could hardly understand. All I could answer her was, “it’s okay now baby and I love you.”

My kids know now when I am mad. They also know how to make it vanish in an instant because a simple hug for me would make it go away. More often my little boy would tell me, “no get mad mama, hug onwi.”

But hey, there’s a bonus part, when D knows that her sister did something wrong, he would immediately tell me, “no get Mama A, Dodo loves her.” Now how can I still be mad?
