See The Latest From The Mind Museum : The Science Circus

Science Circus: Step Right Up! is the latest traveling exhibition of The Mind Museum, showcasing the amusing, the peculiar, and the extraordinary in our everyday experiences, in the form of interactive exhibits that deceive the senses and boggle the mind. Be ready to #EnterTheScienceCircus this coming October 28, 2016!

Note* – The photos below are not the actual circus areas but a sneak peek of the upcoming exhibition.

1. Science Circus entrance

While the nearly 250-year history of the circus abounds with awe-inspiring demonstrations of physical skill – such as high-flying aerial artists, to death-defying daredevils – the Science Circus challenges our traditional notions of a circus by focusing on the mind’s “acrobatic” perceptual tricks.

As the guests enter the exhibition, they are welcomed by a festive, colorful façade which sets the tone for the sights and sounds they are about to experience. These interactive exhibits are displayed simultaneously in three adjacent Rings. Guests can go in any of the Rings in the order they please.

3. Inside Science Circus

Ring One, or Deception Perception is a menagerie of exhibits that will prompt you to question whether to see is to believe. Can you always trust your senses? Is what you see as real as it seems? Can your brain produce motion where there is none? Your first venture into the Circus will unveil the “blindness” of your mind’s eye.

2. Inside Science Circus

Ring Two highlights Pieces of Incredible Engineering, where guests can engage their minds in puzzles and relish how math and art come together. This central area is animated by simple machines, and engages guests in activities that evoke their inner engineer.

Last but not least, Ring Three is Encounters with the Masters, where guests can interact with and learn the secrets of the Masters of Illusion. They can take on the challenges posed by each Master, and discover how our brains can be ensnared by smoke and mirrors.

The Science Circus: Step Right Up! exhibition vividly illustrates how our everyday experiences are full of delightful secrets that we can uncover, to discover more about ourselves and the world around us.

The Cheesiest And Creamiest Ensaimadas By Red Ribbon

When I crave for ensaimadas, I think of Red Ribbon. You know why? Because of the generous sweet butter and cheese toppings of Red Ribbon ensaimadas. As I pull the bread out of the packaging, my mouth is already thrilled of the promise of cheesy sweetness.

ensaimadablogNow, Red Ribbon, one of the leading bakeshop chains in the Philippines, wants to please everyone with a much better Red Ribbon Cheesy Ensaimada. The cheesy goodness of the ensaimadas has now leveled up to achieve the perfect balance of sweet and salty taste. This new and exciting flavor is brought by the perfect combination of butter and sugar toppings covered with long and thick strands of creamy cheese.

And there’s more. Red Ribbon introduces two new flavors : Red Ribbon Strawberry Cheesecake Ensaimada and the Red Ribbon Salted Caramel Ensaimada.

The Strawberry Cheesecake Ensaimada is topped with a rich layer of luscious strawberry and cream cheese with the classic cheese toppings that we all loved.The Red Ribbon Salted Caramel Ensaimada is generously smothered with salted caramel topping and long strands of creamy cheese. I’ve easily fallen for this variant because the topping tastes like the salty caramel “yema” I’ve always craved for since childhood.

Red Ribbon Cheesy Ensaimadas are available for P25 only while the Red Ribbon Strawberry Cheesecake Ensaimada and Red Ribbon Salted Caramel Ensaimada are priced at P35 each.

With Red Ribbon’s new and improved Cheesy Ensaimadas, moms have more delicious options to put in their kids’ “baon” boxes and we adults can look forward to more pleasurable snacks.

Red Ribbon Ensaimadas are now available in all stores nationwide.

Mekeni Classic Tocino – Wake Up To A Breakfast Made With Love

The saying that “Breakfast is the most important meal of the day” is true, not only because breakfast fills up an empty stomach but for me, a good breakfast also fills up the heart.

sleepyEvery morning, I wake up as early as 4AM to prepare our family’s breakfast. My husband and I try very hard to have the table ready and sit with our kids, pray with them and talk to each other at breakfast time. But it’s not easy waking up the kids that early and it’s even harder to make them eat that much. I know most moms can relate with me when I say this. It’s but normal to have a lazy appetite during the morning. But you know what really helps? It’s when I start cooking and brewing the coffee when the house starts to brighten up and make my husband and my kids eager to jump out of bed, take a shower, wear their uniforms and sit in front of the table.

Mekeni Pork Tocino

First time I tasted Mekeni Pork Tocino was in Mekeni’s plant itself in Pampanga. I was decided that I had to let my kids and my husband taste Mekeni when I go back home.

Mekeni Tocino is one of my favorite dishes to cook for breakfast because it is easy to prepare. The slices of tocino are already separated and I don’t have to cut it to pieces before cooking. And unlike other tocino brands, I can fry Mekeni Tocino directly with a small amount of cooking oil. I remember my Lola, who was the expert cook in our family, taught me to boil tocino first before frying, to make sure that it is safe to eat and will not be rubbery. Not so with Mekeni Tocino because it brings out a nice, sweet aroma while it’s being fried and when it is cooked, it is tender to the bite and tastes sweet and delicious with eggs fried sunny side up. Sometimes the kids even like to bring tocino as their “baon” for lunch.

Mekeni World Class Meat Processor

Mekeni is a multi-awarded company when it comes to meat processing

Having visited the Mekeni plant in Pampanga, seeing how clean their plant is and how dedicated the workers are, makes me confident that the tocino we eat are safe, healthy and made of quality meat. Their tocino has no MSG, no salitre and no chemical tenderizer. Their products are HACCP food safety cerfied (HACCP as I researched about it means Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point and it is a quality standard which food business operators need to ensure on their products. This label guarantees food safety for the consumers.


tocino smallAs mothers, it’s our role to fill up our family’s stomach with a complete breakfast daily. But we can still bring it up to a higher level when our breakfast is made with love. When we ensure that our kids eat happily at breakfast because they enjoy what they eat and they enjoy the company of the whole family in the morning. By doing all these, we prepare the whole family for the day not only with a full stomach but a full spirit and a happy heart as well. — As blogged by
