Mom, mommy, mama, nanay, inay. We use a lot of words to call the most important woman in our lives, but all of these convey our deep affection, respect, and adoration for our mothers. And as we welcome May, we look forward to that special weekend when we celebrate everything about our moms, make them feel loved, and show them that they deserve nothing but the best.
To help you make your Mother’s Day celebration more memorable, Araneta City has prepared some fun activities for both you and your beloved mom! Here are some things to look forward to at the City of Firsts:
1. Give mom the most entertaining day of her life.
Bring your mom and the whole family to the Gateway Mall activity area on May 8 at 3pm for the All for You Mom mall show! Be energized with the exciting performance of The Addlib dancers, and make mom kilig with a special number from celebrity heartthrob Xian Lim!
There’s also a special sandwich-making segment with comedienne Tuesday Vargas courtesy of appliance brand Tough Mama. Appliances will be given away to some lucky audience, so make sure to be there!
Meanwhile, at Farmers Plaza, moms can also enjoy a musical treat in the activity area from 4pm to 6pm.
2. Shop, dine, and enjoy special rewards for mom.
If you’re still clueless about what to gift her, check out Ali Mall’s Mommy Bazaar from May 1 to 14. Visit all 10 booths with products that mom would surely love, including women’s apparel, accessories, beauty products, and other trinkets and knick knacks.
If you’re planning to celebrate at Food Express, Food Plaza, Food Gallery, or Dampa at Farmers Market, your mom is in for a special treat! Join the Cool Summer Gulp promo by exchanging ₱250 worth of single or accumulated receipts for a cool Coca-Cola tumbler or a refreshing can of Coke. The first 50 diners to redeem on Mother’s Day will also get a FREE pastillas rose! Just show a family picture to claim the additional freebie.
3. Say a prayer of thanks for mom.
Our moms are, without a doubt, God’s greatest blessings to everyone. Let us thank the Lord for giving us such blessings. A Mother's Day anticipated Mass will be held on May 7, 4pm, at the Ali Mall Chapel, and everyone is invited to be part of it.
4. Celebrate Mother’s Day online and win special prizes.
The City of Firsts is also bringing the fun virtually through various online promos! On Facebook, there's the Pic with Mom promo. Share your favorite photo with your mom on Araneta City’s FB page and give a short statement about why she deserves all the prizes prepared by the City of Firsts. Post your entries from May 2 to 8 for a chance to win exciting surprises for mom!
