SM Supermalls launched the SM StartUp Package for aspiring entrepreneurs

It has been almost two years since the pandemic brought Filipino life and many livelihoods to a screeching halt. According to a 2020 Asian Development Bank (ADB) study of 1,804 Philippine MSMEs, 70.6% were forced to temporarily close with 66.2% reported to have temporary staff cuts during the height of the COVID-19 outbreak. Bucking these statistics and the odds created by the changes in the landscape, the enterprising Filipino found many opportunities in online businesses, with the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) recording over 88,000 new e-commerce registrations at the end of 2020. This figure is projected to be a million e-commerce enterprises by 2022 (from 500,000 in 2020). By taking advantage of the online space, MSME owners have become unsung heroes of the economy, all the while providing for their families and making their business dreams a reality.  SM Supermalls very well understands the potential of each Filipino to be successful business owners because of their founde

Summer Fun For Kids In The New Normal

Can you feel the excruciating heat already? I don't want to state the obvious, but summer is here, and that means everyone else will be busy taking out their floaters and portable swimming pools at home. Many are planning a summer getaway during this time of year at nearby resorts and hotels. Due to the global pandemic, we are limited now to the comforts of our homes. But this pandemic should not hinder the small kids from having fun under the Sun in their home's amenities.


THE NEW NORMAL


Due to the quarantine that the government mandates, people have limited access to resorts and any recreational activities outside their homes. Some converted a portion of their home into a small pool where their kids can enjoy the water, while some still opt for the pack-away kind of pool. No one knows yet when hotels and resorts will be fully operational so that people could enjoy the beach during the summer. All we can do is stay at home and make do of what we can.


THE CHALLENGE 


How do kids who don't have that much space enjoy the water at home? We moms need to be creative on how to make memories with our children. We can let them enjoy water through several portable pools that we can set up at home. We have plenty of portable pools that 
we can buy online, and these are some of my picks:


1. Intex Inflatable Pool that you can set-up in your yard or garage. Get it here.
2. You can also set-up a sprinkler mat for your little ones. Get it here.



3. Inflatable pool for you yard. Get it here.


4. If you have small space and you want to set it up in the bathroom, you can do it too. Here is one that I found. Get it here.

THE PROTECTION





We all know that the Sun's harmful rays can cause damage to our skin, let alone our kids. Are we sure that we are giving them the proper protection? We need to provide them with the right sunscreen that is both kid and Earth-friendly too. I discovered Orange and Peach sunblock for babies and kids. 


Orange and peach is a local brand that caters to kids' essentials. They also have products that cater to the kids' new normal, like kids' masks and face shields.



Orange and Peach sunblock features: 


  1. whipped technology for a light and non-greasy feel, 
  2. offers both UVA and UVB protection, 
  3. infused with coconut water for a hydrating and moisturizing effect, 
  4. safe to be used on face and body, 
  5. oxybenzone and octinoxate free, which makes it SAFE for corals and fish
  6. SPF 50++ coverage


Their packaging is excellent in a squeezy tube so that it will also be for the kids to take the product out. The scent is not that strong, and the texture of the product is lightweight and not too greasy. Your little ones will not feel uneasy wearing sunscreen before their water playtime under the Sun.


You can get it at their official online stores: Lazada, BeautyMNL, Orange and peach website and Shopee Store.
