April = Summer = Fun

Here's an amusing photo of the April cover cintra board with John-D, Lourdes and me. We attended a Mommy-Fitness symposium (of which John-D was the excellent emcee) at the new Atrium of SM Megamall.

The April issue has lots of fun and important tips for a happy healthy summer. Here I learned (with mouth falling open) what bottle water does to the body and the environment. (You may want to pick this up for that article alone). One thing is sure: the one who wrote the feature, Ditas, mountaineer extraordinaire, hasn't been seen with a bottle of water since. XD

As we worked on this issue, we dubbed it with different names: "the food issue" and "the green issue," besides the original "the summer issue." Summer, because it brings us back to the great outdoors, is a time we find ourselves most close to nature--hence, the "green" or that yearning to leave the world in good (if not better) condition for the next generation (i.e. babies!).

Food happened to be highlighted too, especially for women who are trying to have a baby and who have just had a baby. (Interesting how these stages are often not focused on, don't you think so?)

That pretty swimmer on the cover, by the way, is SM Starbaby winner Samantha Sayson, who loved every minute in the water--she even went down the slide (her Tita held her of course)! Kristin Rodriguez took the photos. Baby magazine is published by Marathon Publishing Co. and is sold at all National Bookstores, Babyland (Robinsons Galleria, Shaw Blvd. near Cherry Foodarama, Shoppesville), Baby & Co. (The Podium and Power Plant Mall), Bufini, Procreation Shangri-la mall, Big & Small Co. Shangri-la Mall.
