Event: #PrimePinasarapMoments with Mega Prime

Christmas is fast approaching, stirring the passions of moms who see this as the season to prepare extraordinary meals, as well as those who want to try out their business smarts.

To help moms prepare for homey holidays, Mega Prime held the second installment of the Prime Mom Club Workshop on November 17 at the Prime Hotel Grand Ballroom. The workshop was especially designed to help moms make their Christmas celebrations extra memorable with pinasarap moments.

To ignite the entrepreneurial spirit of workshop attendees, mompreneurs were invited to talk about their businesses as well as encourage would-be mompreneurs in the audience to try their hand at starting their own business.

Among the speakers was Chef Mira Angeles, whose passion for cooking and baking has led to a successful business enterprise. During the workshop, she demonstrated how to whip up yummy desserts such as pastillas and polvoron using Mega Prime's high quality ingredients These delicious desserts can be packaged and sold during Christmas, earning the moms extra cash. Of course, these desserts will always be welcome additions in any Christmas spread, and will definitely be enjoyed by everyone in the family. She was joined by Prime Mom ambassador herself, Miss Marian Rivera, who also demonstrated dishes using Mega Prime ingredients. 

In addition, interior designer Via Pacheco, one of the founders of Maartsy, gave a demonstration on how to make holiday trinkets and charms. These handmade works of arts may be sold for profit, but will also brighten up any Christmas tree and home. Moms were taught the basics of making holiday jewelry keychains as well as where to source their jewelry designs and compute for the right price! Maartsy started in 2015 as a creative social media page, but eventually evolved into giving craft workshops for the weekend artist in 2017.

The Prime Mom Club workshop captures Mega Prime's commitment to help moms improve their skills as homemakers within and beyond the kitchen by offering information-packed, interactive events. Not only are Prime Moms treated to a wide range of privileges, they also enjoy perks such as entrance to Mega Prime Exclusive events featuring experts, a Special Prime Mom Club ID, a monthly newsletter compiling exciting recipes and many chances to receive special gift items and products from Mega Prime.
