City of Dreams Manila’s “QuaranTIPS” creative video series featured on social media are drawing netizens to the one-minute videos on practical tips, recipes and at-home activities as they learn new skills from various experts at the integrated resort. The undertaking is designed to help families and netizens learn new skills and make the most of their time and even alleviate any anxieties while on Enhanced Community Quarantine.
The do-it-yourself series has produced five videos to date, including an easy-to-follow tutorial from the resort’s Housekeeping on how to make in 10 minutes a reusable cloth face mask, especially that wearing face masks is mandatory in this time of the pandemic. When a protective, disposable mask is not available, a reusable and washable mask adds a layer of safety.
The chefs share recipes using simple pantry items to satisfy various cravings. For Southeast Asian flavors, the chefs demonstrate how to do the home version of Red Ginger’s popular Malaysian dish, Mee Goreng. For those experimenting with new and healthy dishes, the Spiced Tuna Fried Lumpia will delight appetites. The chefs also share an easy rice cooker recipe for a Filipino favorite dessert, Leche Flan, which has merited the highest views to date.
The videos are made by the resort’s marketing and branding team, from conceptualization and production to editing and posting on various social media platforms. That the videos are viewed by up to 100,000 netizens inspires the team and the featured tutors who bring City of Dreams Manila’s passion for guest service to the public in a new way.
Released today is a fun, family activity, away from techno gadgets: a home-made play dough, to keep the children engaged in interactive fun and limitless creativity with clay.
In these unprecedented times, a video shares how groups of four to five volunteers hygienically reprocess used soaps from Nuwa, Nobu and Hyatt Regency hotels into new soap bars that are donated to Parañaque’s informal settlers and charitable institutions. The activity takes off from the universal “Soap for Hope” program of Diversey, and in collaboration locally with an NGO Mesa ni Misis. The resort has repurposed countless soaps into more than 1,300 new bars during the ECQ.
The videos hark on the resort’s battle cry during the pandemic: “We’re with you through it all”. QuaranTIPS videos are available on City of Dreams Manila’s official Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and LinkedIn accounts.
