Mandaue Foam has been around since 1971 by Rosita Uy. The company began as a foam manufacturer in Cebu and now it has 19 factories and showrooms worldwide. Mrs. Uy now has over 5,000 employees. What’s cool is that the marketing side of the business is now being handled by Mrs. Uy’s grandson, Ryan Uy. Ryan was my batch mate in Ateneo and he’s helped create MF Lifestyle to rebrand Mandaue Foam as a company that sells chic home furnishings beyond mattresses for the modern Filipino family.

The launch earlier today was held at the Rockwell Tent and it was beautifully set up. The ceiling was draped with white cloth and the entire floor was covered in astroturf. White sofas, coffee tables, and cocktail tables were spread out with accents of blue.


Setting up! Hi, mama!

At the edge of tent, they placed different stations of room mock ups that represented the design aesthetic of their various new ambassadors — myself included!

Here is my corner, inspired by the designs and pieces I actually chose for our condo. Think earth colors, comfy, and gender-neutral now that I’m sharing a space with a boy. LOL.


What I love about Mandaue Foam is that they offer customization. I saw some stuff I liked but given the limited condo space we have, we couldn’t bring the pieces home. Instead, we were able to have some items custom-made according to size. Yay, I can’t wait until they are delivered!!


Felt very comfy in my outfit from H&M’s upcoming collection

If I’m the newly-wed, beside my station was the beautiful and new-mother-to-be Kelly Misa in her home office space!


There was an inspiration corner where you could make your own dreamboards using magazines and color palettes

Cute spider chandelier!

Fashion blogger Kryz Uy‘s station was nice and clean! Loved that dining table set when I saw it in the showroom too!

Are you obsessed with this bird cage chandelier? This is like Chandelier and Elastic Heart in one!!!

The hosts RJ Ledesma and another Mandaue Foam ambassador Tessa Prieto-Valdes went from station to station to ask us about our own selections!

I love that Mandaue Foam is finally getting the word out that there’s a local company to cater to your furniture needs whatever lifestyle you may be leading. I’m really grateful to be chosen as an ambassador and I can’t wait until my #MFLifestyle project for our condo is finally done! I promise to blog about it!!;)

      Hi Denise! Nothing much has changed, but it feels surreal and writing my new last name feels like the new year when you have to go from writing 2014 to 2015. Takes some getting used to hehe.

    Hi Saab! First of all, ang ganda ng hair mo at ng dress mo. Super love both! Also, pwede bang mag-request ng blog article about how to change or apply for documents that will change your maiden name to married name? Ya know, to give us, your readers, some idea din. Thanks!

    you look like nicole/snooki polizzi here, when you colored your hair purple & it’s curly too, and when snooki lose weight too. I noticed it you look like her. I’m not kidding. :)
