1Laba Day: Moms' special treat and day off from washing clothes

Text and photos by Mark Garcia I am a man but the labor and nitty-gritty of doing the laundry is nothing new to me. I do my own laundry ever since my high  school days even now that I already belong to the country’s work force. There was even a time that I was in charge of my three sisters’ laundry being the eldest of four kids, in a bid to help mom and pop as they work outside of the home to feed us four and send us to school. That’s why I was most willing to pitch-in for mom when he asked me to cover a laundry event by Unilever Philippines. It turned out that Unilever   through its detergent powder  brand Breeze was treating moms all over the country to a day off from washing clothes with   1Laba Day , a simultaneous nationwide event on   August 28, 2014, in Metro Manila (Pasig, Marikina, Quezon City, Pasay), North Luzon (Tarlac, Pangasinan),  South Luzon (Laguna, Cavite) Visayas (Cebu)  and Mindanao  (Davao).
