Say it Sweeter with Toblerone this Mother’s Day
Spent last Thursday afternoon sipping Mojitos and munching Toblerone Chocolates with Val at a beautiful home-turned-into-talk-show-studio in Forbes park.
I loved everything about the place especially the tranquility. Thursday lunch felt more like Sunday brunch.
What’s your favorite Toblerone? Mine’s the white one.
Val and I was expecting to see a giant Toblerone fondue when we entered the house. *wishful thinking*
Flipped the Toblerone box and saw this special edition print right before the program started. Guess who hosted it?
Clue: She’s one of the few hip moms that can rock this pair of Louboutins.
It’s none other than super cool mom, Tessa Prieto-Valdes and RJ Ledesma.
They picked the right combination because both of them really brought the place to life starting with Tessa’s flamboyant ensemble and RJ’s funny punch lines.
Each of them gave their fair share about being a mother and a son and both came to a conclusion that children nowadays are ashamed or find it awkward to say ‘I love you’ to their parents.
Toblerone invited life coach, Pia Acevedo, to explain the reason behind it through stories from yuppies like Jessica Tan-Gan, Georgia Schulze-Del Rosario & RJ Jacinto.
Everyone was touched by Georgia’s thank you speech to her mom. I got a bit teary-eyed because I could relate to her story about spending a lot of time with her mom in the kitchen and inheriting all of her secret recipes because her sister (and mine too) isn’t fond of baking. In my mom’s case, cooking. She can’t bake to save her life. Haha. *u*
Pia explained that each person has a unique way of showing or saying I love you through the 5 love languages.
- Words of Affirmation
- Quality Time
- Receiving Gifts
- Acts of Service
- Physical Touch
I’m guessing RJ’s love language is #5, physical touch because he wasn’t awkward with hugging or holding his mom’s hands. He admitted to being a ‘mama’s boy’ too.
They were given a box of Toblerones with a little extra something inside. There were ‘awwws’ and big smiles when they showed us their mother and son/daughter photos inside their boxes.
Had a short chat with Tessa and she told us about how she spoils her kids and showers them with gifts. I’d like to have her as a mom for a day (only). I wouldn’t swap mine for anyone, not even 10 Tessa Prieto-Valdes-es. Yes, I’m a mamas girl. :>
I just wish my mom would learn how to wear high heels so I could
steal borrow them!
Got to take home a box full of Toblerones. Sent some to one of my best friends’ mom because she loves chocolates more than my mom. 8D
