Downy sure knows how to pamper moms. Our own moms, no less.

The same moms who carried us in their womb for nine months, who cradled us to sleep, fed us, gave us a bath even if we so resist, who raised us up while protecting us from harm.

The very moms whose scent we will never forget.

Just in time for Mother’s Day yesterday, a celebration of mothers was held last week. The invitation said we can bring along our mom. I did bring my mom, and brought my daughter, too.

First on the agenda: for us to line up for the photo booth as we entered the Conservatory. Beautiful portrait captured by Idea Shop.

The short program was hosted by Stephanie Zubiri-Crespi, who shared her own experiences as a daughter to her mother and as a mother herself.

Then, we were treated to a sumptuous lunch while being serenaded by actor and singer Guji Lorenzana. Downy also prepared a simple AVP, in which they asked us to send in greetings for our moms.

Here's our contribution to the AVP.

Here's another AVP of the photos taken at the photobooth, with Guji singing to "She" popularised by Elvis Costello. The same song was used in the current commercial of Downy Timeless.

They served, among other things, dessert! (Sweet tooth here) This is called Timeless, a French Silk Pie packed with, uhm, chocolate.

Glad to have seen mommy friends from the blogosphere, met new friends, and to spend the day with two women I love most–my mom and my daughter.
