How did you spend the special day for your moms? Mine was almost a whole month celebration, attending events for moms like this one.

Just as the month for mothers was about to end, Good Housekeeping Philippines, a magazine of Summit Media, had this one afternoon event for urban moms like me, in my side of town– Mall of Asia!

Called GHMums (or Modern Urban Moms of Manila), the event featured booths, workshops, and prizes for its attendees, mostly mothers, who took this time to relax as they shop, learn, and enjoy.

I did. Here are some of the things I did that afternoon:

SHOP from 30 concessionaires offering the latest products covering beauty and wellness, food, kids, and home, among others.
LEARN from a series of talks from Good Housekeeping editors and experts.
ENJOY games, raffles, prizes, entertainment, and booth activities. I had this makeover by Maquillage Profesionnel.

Here’s more about the event, which I really hope would happen again next year. Hapoy Anniversary, Good Housekeeping Philippines!

Good Housekeeping Philippines, the leading family and home magazine in the country, in partnership with and Yummy magazine, recently held the newest gathering of Modern Urban Moms (MUMS) on May 28, Saturday, from 1:00 to 6:00 PM, at the SM Mall of Asia Main Mall, Atrium.
