Make footprints of change at Crimson Resort’s Project Happy Feet 2015

PHF, as it is called by many, is a non-competitive team activity where participants wear flip flops and make a fun 3-5km walk and tackle different fun obstacles and challenges. It aims to gather funds for the education and training of underprivileged children.

This year’s beneficiary is Bantay Bata 163 to support the Bantay Edukasyon Program, developed to support the educational needs of select individuals supported by the organization in various levels of education – elementary, high school and college.

The PHF slipper race initiative started in Cebu last 2013 in partnership with Singaporean based organization Project Happy Feet Ltd., set up since 2009 to empower the lives of underprivileged youths and children by supporting their education and training through fund-raising for education- related initiatives and programs that positively impact them or their families. Related programs have positively impacted more than 5,000 children in Singapore, Vietnam, Cambodia and Nepal. Two years ago Crimson Mactan brought the initiative to Cebu.

Last year’s slipper race gathered over 300,000 pesos and greatly helped support children’s educational needs in Northern Cebu which was devastated by the typhoon Haiyan.

“This year, we want to raise equal value if not more. We want to see the children we have started supporting in 2013 continue through their education. The first year’s slipper race was able to support 7 children to school for 2 years, and we hope to be able to continue supporting them this year” Crimson’s resort manager, Kristofer Quadros said.

100% of the proceeds go to Bantay Bata 163 for the Bantay Edukasyon Program.

Zee’s Pick for the Week

Tickle Your Palate with Father’s Eggs

ZEE picks an interesting dessert for our reader’s sweet passions.  Plantation Bay’s Bakeshop by the Beach created a dessert specialty that will tickle both your palate and naughty thoughts.

Pastry Chef Gerard Apurado presented a unique treat for this year’s Father’s Day, it is called Father’s Eggs.  However, Father’s Eggs received highly positive feedback from their clientele and from food critics.  And the people could not stop ordering them; so why not make everyday a Father’s Day?

Father’s Eggs are delicately crafted custard inside an eggshell; plus, it comes in six different flavors:  coffee, pandan, strawberry, ube, plain custard, and mango.  However, each flavor is given a playful name by Chef Apurado.  The amazing part is that every flavor is so distinct and crave-worthy.  Chef Apurado is keeping the recipe a secret; but everyone can order Father’s Eggs at the Plantation Bay’s Bakeshop by the Beach Facebook page.
