Luxury integrated resort City of Dreams Manila’s creative video series on social media offers viewers practical tips, recipes, and at-home activities taught by various experts.
The project, dubbed “QuaranTIPS,” is designed to help 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 by the resort’s housekeeping on how to make a reusable cloth face mask in 10 minutes.
CoD chefs, meanwhile, 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 Filipino favorite dessert leche flan, which has merited the highest views to date.
There’s also a video on fun, family activity using homemade play dough to keep children engaged.
The videos are made by the resort’s marketing and branding team. The series has currently raked in more than 100,000 views.
Further, another video shows 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 the NGO Mesa ni Misis. The resort has repurposed countless soaps into more than 1,300 new bars during the ECQ.
The QuaranTIPS videos are available on City of Dreams Manila’s official Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and LinkedIn accounts.
