It’s more fun in the Philippines!

As a kid, you may have found museums to be boring and stuffy, but they are anything but when you pair the right type of museum to the right personality. These days, museums come in many forms that range from the traditional, don’t-touch-the-art type to the playful, touch-all-the-art kind. While some may balk at some of today’s museum concepts, this spot remains to be defined as a place where objects of interest or value are displayed, and interest or value is very much relative. At the end of the day, a museum houses art, culture, and history, and more importantly, brings together people.

If you’re looking for interactive and playful museums, here are 10 places that will bring out your inner kid:

Franchising in the Philippines has never been bigger. Year on year, the industry grows exponentially.

Halo-Halo: The Surprising Origin of Philippines’ Beloved Dessert

Arguably the Philippines’ most popular dessert (sorbetes is another choice), halo-halo has a history as deliciously rich as its mixture of flavors.

In her book The Governor-General’s Kitchen: Philippine Culinary Vignettes and Period Recipes 1521-1935, food historian Felice Prudente Sta. Maria shares a brief history of Filipinos’ favorite shaved ice dessert:

The Japanese mitsumame, literally “many beans,” a favorite homeland refreshment translated into mongo con hielo by Nippon immigrants,  helped bring icy refreshment to the popular market. Philippine variations climaxed in halo-halo, which adds fruit preserves and custards to the prototype.

Benefits of Franchising

Advantage #1 – The Experience of the Franchisor
When an individual buys a franchise, he purchases the years of experience and the proven methods of the franchise system, also known as the franchisor. One franchisee expressed it this way: “What I have learned from the franchisor was worth ten times what I paid for the franchise”. In any new business, much time and money are spent in trial and error. A proven franchise may eliminate many of the start-up problems. This reason permits one to open a franchise business with little or no previous experience in a given industry.

Advantage #2 – Training
A franchise system will provide training for the new franchisee. This is usually done at the home office and at the franchisee’s place of business. This training should prepare the new owner in all facets of the business.

Advantage #3 – Buying and Advertising
Most small-business people cannot afford inventory products in bulk or extensive advertising. The franchisee buys this advantage when he or she purchases the right to use the franchise system’s purchasing power and advertising. Most system provide advertising. Most systems provide advertising help and direction. Furthermore, as the number of franchisees increases, so does public awareness of the franchise. This can be tremendous advertising advantage. Also, franchisees that are located near one another can advertise together thus reducing cost.
