The Express Yourself Parenting Workshop by SM Cinema, Snack Time & Smart Parenting


To celebrate Disney’s biggest movie of 2015 and to fulfill SM’s goal to provide bonding activities for families through entertainment, SM Cinema and Snack Time held a fun-filled workshop for parents and children to encourage family bonding.

While the minis enjoyed activities at the kiddie corner, we were invited to listen to talks on effective parenting methods by seasoned speakers such as Chef Roselle Miranda and Mark Dean Lim at the Express Yourself Parenting Workshop. Topics like bento box making and the meaning of colors were discussed. These are especially interesting talks for my family and I because we love doing arts and crafts together!


To cap off our afternoon, the whole family was treated to an advanced screening of Inside Out—a movie we’ve been wanting to see ever since the trailer was released months ago!

Introducing the mind of a young girl with five personified emotions—namely Joy, Sadness, Fear, Disgust, and Anger—these five emotions lead her through life as she encounters new and uncomfortable changes in a new city. Directed by Pete Docter and co-directed by fellow Filipino, Ronaldo Del Carmen, Inside Out received critical praise for its concept and moving story on family, which were successfully presented in an entertaining and easily understandable manner.

I tell ya, Inside Out is a must-see movie for families! It’ll take you on a roller coaster ride of emotions as Riley, the main character, goes through a new phase in her life. I laughed, I cried, and most of the time, I laugh-cried. LOL! It made me reminisce my childhood and reminded me of things I let go of or forgot of as I was growing up. It also made me realize how my life shifted through the years. I swear, it’s a movie that both children AND adults will relate to.

    You were there!!! It was just too bad that our family relocated to Bacolod. Otherwise, we would have been there. My son loved that movie. His favorite is Joy 🙂

      My daughter’s favorite is Sadness. That almost got my husband and I in trouble in her school because she’s the only kid who answered Sadness! Haha! But when I asked her why, she said she just likes the color blue and she finds Sadness’ antiques cute.
