Only In The Philippines: That One Time We Were In A Diaper Ad

Only In The Philippines: That One Time We Were In A Diaper Ad

"Who is this kaloka chick and what is she doing here?" Is what I imagine goes through peoples head way too often when I show up at events or on promotional videos like the one we recently did for the newly launched brand, Goo.N. I would also ask myself, "Self, how do you end up in these situations?" I can't help but laugh and reply to this one sided conversation all happening in my head, with the simplest answer, "Only in the Philippines." 

Here's the real story. I started writing for a few months back and the EIC who also dabbles in PR was working with Goo.N during the making of their new promotional video. The producers viewed a video I did last year for The Parenting Files and loved the way I humiliated myself on camera- ha! I cannot hide much, even on camera. After a few inquiries we spent a Saturday morning with my sweetest little babe and a production team answering questions about motherhood. We revisited past experiences I haven't had time to slow down and ponder for years. I would be lying if I didn't say tears were shed, motherhood is intense people. 

When the time came for the actual launch of Goo.N I had another opportunity to share about motherhood with a power line up of other parents. Wells was a little ham through the whole event. I couldn't believe it. He was soaking it all in and giving the people what they wanted, cuteness overload!

Even the food was beautiful at Manila House. 

The event was a new experience for me but as usual I was swooning over the interiors the whole time. The Manila House is a magical private space that is pretty much every boheme-chic inspired Pinterest board all in one place but in real life. I know, it is pure eye candy. From crown molding to carpet, wall paper to window treatments it is a tall glass you want to drink in.

Check out the video below. They were so gracious in editing out my tears.  

That's a wrap!
