McDonald’s Happy Studio App

Yup! McDonald’s has a new App, Mommies! It isn’t just an engaging app, it is also educational. After learning McDonald’s is going to have a new App, I quickly downloaded it on my phone.

Happy Studio is an interactive learning and play app that makes the Happy Meal experience even more enjoyable. The best part? You can even scan a Happy Meal toy to unlock more fun and games within the app!

Educational Game Play
McDonald’s App grows children’s imaginations and encourages innovative thinking. In the Happy Studio app, kids can choose to step into the shoes of an inventor, an artist, or a musician. Each activity is focused on developing certain skills while putting the child into playful mini-scenarios.

As an inventor, kids can build various objects with their favorite characters while learning creative and logic skills as they go. As an artist, children are able to improve their creative skills and exercise their imagination. As a musician, kids are able to explore musical patterns to help improve their rhythm and timing.

My 3 year old loves to doodle, so she enjoyed being an “artist” through this App. She is yet to try being an inventor and musician but I am sure she’d love this too!

Now we don’t have to let her watch videos on the internet. Instead, we can use the McDonald’s App and learn thru play!

Happy Studio is now available for download from the Apple App Store or Google Play Store. Share your love for the app via the official Facebook fan page, www.facebook.com/mcdo.ph, or by tagging @McDo_PH to your sweet and funny Happy Studio moments on Twitter or Instagram.

Crimson Hotel Alabang

Home sweet home is the song of our hearts early February when Hubby finally set foot in the Philippine soil. It had been a whole year of being overseas for him and us going back and forth to Singapore to visit him. My daughter has become a pro at flying and going thru immigration. We were practically on board every single month for the entire 2016!
Well, what better way to celebrate his homecoming than by having a relaxing staycation at a 5 star hotel. This has been our favorite luxury. We have a very simple house. My clothes can fit a small box. We don’t have branded clothes. I only have less than 5 pairs of shoes. Staying at a hotel is really our only luxury.
We initially wanted to catch Ms Universe live at MOA but we weren’t willing to pay the price (literally) nor were we willing to buy a general admission ticket where I would only see Ms Philippines and Pia Wurtzbach from afar. We ended up choosing to watch Ms U from the comforts of Crimson Hotel.

Here’s what I think about it: 
Price. As always, we booked our stay from Booking.com. This is where we have booked all of our hotel stays. We usually get the cheapest price from them. With this particular stay, we only paid Php3,700 inclusive of the taxes.
Room. It isn’t my favorite. I still love Vivere and my husband Bellevue. But I have no complaints here. It is nice and cozy.
Service. As expected, the staff are courteous and greets us every time we pass by them.
Security. Not all hotels have the kind of security they have. If you stay in the 25th floor, that’s the only floor you can access with your keycard. And if you don’t have the keycard with you, there is no way you can get to any floor!
Overall, we enjoyed our stay. Our daughter of course did not mind tge cold weather at 6 in the morning. She jumped into the pool without reservation.
Verdict: Highly recommended. I am sure we will stay here again.
What is your favorite hotel in Alabang? Have you stayed at Crimson Hotel? What do you think about it?
