Another balikbayan Filipino took the time to give back to children this Christmas season. We’ve been getting a number of these this 2015. Thanks to our Create Your Own Event form, we got to communicate well with Kuya Chester Chan while he was still in Singapore. He is a friend of our Singapore Ambassador, Ate Joanna Villagarcia-Blanding. We are ecstatic that we are slowly tapping international.

One of regular baking workshop supporters, Kuya Chef Paul Samson volunteered and sponsored our main activity. He was joined by two of his students who were a big help in managing 50 children from Tulong sa Kapwa Kapatid. We did three rounds of non baking. We had make your own Pastillas, Peanut Butter with Strawberry Jam Crepe plus Cupcake decorating. The photos speaks so much on how much fun everyone had. It was a first for the kids to have an activity like this.

As we continue to shift to more enriching events, baking will teach children the balance of creativity as they make their own versions of desserts and the right measurements to make the product happen. It also encapsulates the value of listening and communicating with peers to make it a relevant experience.

Even though Christmas has passed, the children received bags of goodies from Kuya Chester and friends. They received Oishi packs, juices and biscuits from another sponsor, Rebisco.
