It’s been a little over a month since I joined Modern Parenting’s editorial team as their Managing Editor. Since then, a lot of exciting things have happened—including the launch of Modern Parenting Philippines’ very first print issue! To celebrate the milestone, Modern Parenting and Rustan’s collaborated and threw an intimate event in Rustan’s Makati.
Strict protocols were observed. In fact, everyone was required to be vaccinated before entering the premises. Guests enjoyed drinks from Lolea and also took home Christmas Pica Boxes from Feliz Dish & Details. Though I missed out on drinking Lolea’s sangria since I’m currently 35 weeks pregnant, I was still able to indulge in the pica box from Feliz Dish & Details as soon as I got home!
Modern Parenting Philippines Launches Very First Print Issue
The event included a short program headed by Marga Medrano-Tupaz, Modern Parenting’s Editor-in-Chief. Afterward, Dr. JV Jaurigue of Orahex discussed the importance of oral hygiene. Then, Pinky Tobiano held a quick tablescape workshop in time for the Christmas season. To close the program, Rustan’s Head of Marketing and Communications, Dina Tantoco, gave a message that embodied gratitude and generosity.
Sip and Shop at Rustan’s Makati
After the event where I finally got to meet the rest of Modern Parenting’s editorial team in person, my mom and I headed to the baby section of Rustan’s Makati. I got to buy some things for my baby! It was definitely a fun afternoon getting to know my colleagues and spending quality time with my mom.
Where to Buy Modern Parenting Philippines’ Special Print Issue
Even though I just joined Modern Parenting last October, I’m so happy to have been a small part of the print issue. It was already in its final stages but our Editor-in-Chief asked me to go through the stories before they were printed. Of course, I was more than happy to proofread all of them! Each story is so unique. Families with different backgrounds shared their trials and triumphs during the pandemic. It’s truly a heartwarming read, so I hope you guys can grab a copy!
It’s available on OMG Newsstands on Lazada and Shopee. Additionally, digital copies are available through Magzter, PressReader, Readly, and Zinio. Lastly, I’m inviting you to follow @modernparentingph on Facebook and Instagram. This way, you never miss out on our stories and articles!
