Gluta White and Firm Shares Joy and Love This Love Month

Image
Before we end the love month, I just want to share to heartwarming video about the elderly. Let this be a reminder to all of us that we may become too busy growing up that we forget that our parents and grandparents are also growing old.  This video features the elderly from Kanlungan ni Maria in Antipolo. We are all invited to donate (in cash or kind) or visit the center and bring joy all the Lolos and Lolas even for a day.  For more details, you may reach Kanlungan ni Maria through their website .  Thank you, Gluta White and Firm for sharing this video. 

Dinner Buffet at Eastwood Richmonde Hotel

Image
Buffet restaurants are very popular nowadays. With the decent price and a very wide spread, it is a smart choice for big eaters. It is so popular that reservations are a must and walk-ins would have to go through a very long wait to be seated. The only thing that concerns me is that the popular buffet restaurants are very crowded. The tables are placed too close to each other in order to maximize the space. There are times that it becomes really noisy wherein conversations become challenging.  Good thing we discovered Eastwood Cafe at the Eastwood Richmonde Hotel. It is strategically located right in the heart of Eastwood City in Libis, Quezon City. Just beside the Eastwood Mall (they share the same parking lot) They have an amazing spread of Asian cuisine (Japanese, Chinese, Mediterranean, Thai.) The place is cozy and the ambiance is perfect.  Let me share some of the dishes we had.  For appetizers:  Pork Kinilaw Shrimp and Apple Salad

If you do not have any plans yet, then check out Tree Top Adventure.  Tree Top Adventure offers four unique outdoor activities divided into slow and fast paced activities.

A Great Gift You Can Give Your Newborn

Have you ever heard about Stem Cell and Cord Blood? Let me give you an idea what it is all about. Cord Blood is the blood that remains in the baby's umbilical cord. It is proven and tested to be a rich source of stem cells, cells that can form all the tissues and organs in our body. In particular, cord blood is a rich source of hematopoietic stem cells of cord blood stem cells to cure life-threatening diseases including leukemia and other blood cancers. Currently, there are on-going clinical trials on its use to treat cerebral palsy, and autism. Cord lining, on the other hand, contains two types of stem cells, namely Mesenchymal and Epithelial stem cells and they are being studied for the treatment of stroke, myocardial infarction, and other potentials applications in regenerative medicine. So with these scientific discoveries, it is such a great joy for parents to know that our children now stand a chance against these life-threatening diseases. We can provide them lifeti

Balinese Stress Relief at Body Tune

Image
I had a pretty crazy first few days of February. My in-laws just arrived from Canada that we were very busy showing them around the Metro plus I was coordinating a small wedding in Bulacan.  Though it was really fun, I end up really tired and immediately just fall asleep every night. When they went back to Canada and the wedding was over, I felt body pains and tense muscles all over. So last Chinese New Year, Val and I decided to get a massage at Body Tune. It is recommended that you make an appointment prior to your visit. We visited SM North Edsa and they actually have two branches in SM North: One at The Block and the other one at the Annex Building (So, don't get confused)  The receptionist was very kind and friendly. While waiting, we were offered hot tea.  They suggested that we'll have the Balinese Massage. It is a form of deep massage concentrated on the upper back part of the body with the use of aromatherapy oils. This is designed to relea

One Important Thing You Must Keep Inside Your Bag

Image
Have you ever experienced walking alone in the middle of the business street like in Ayala and then suddenly, the strap of your sandals broke?  Honestly, I did. I had no extra slippers and no one was with me to buy me a new pair from the nearby convenience store. I had no choice but to walk barefoot and get myself a new one. Dragging my shoes was not a choice. People were staring and indeed it was a very long day for me.  From that day on, I have learned there is one more important thing you must keep inside your bag -- MISHKA SHOES!  Mishka Shoes is a locally made brand that offers a wide variety of comfortable stylish foldable shoes. Yes, your spare shoes must be foldable and lightweight in order not to take up much space in your bag. What makes Mishka shoes special and unique is that it is very stylish and does not look like the ordinary foldable ballet flats available in the market. It is also made of comfortable materials used with extra  foam cushion in th

Coffee has become a staple for everyone. It is available everywhere whether you are dining in a fancy restaurant, fast food chain or even in a convenience store.

Paint your house with luck!

Image
Chinese New Year is just a few days away. My family and I have different practices and traditions to attract   good fortune and prosperity  for the coming year.  Aside from the feast that we prepare during New Year's Eve, we also make sure that we have new slippers bought before the new year. This is to step on people who gossip about you. Bathing pomelo leaves is also believed to bring in good health for the year.  At home, we make sure that the house is cleaned thoroughly before the Chinese New Year and on the strike of 12 midnight, all doors, windows and lights must be opened to welcome good luck and ward off evil spirits.  However, these practices do not end during the Chinese New Year's day celebration. We also believe that feng shui must be practiced to attract positive energy through the arrangement of one's home, type of decorations and even color choice.  We believe that the choice of colors to surround one's environment can effectively enhance

Valentines 2015: The Greatest Kind of Love

Image
Today is Valentines Day and I believe that this day is not all about romantic love. Love can be in all forms and sizes. This is not only shared to our family and friends but we can spread the love to anyone.  Last February 8, 2015, Unilab Foundation launched "United for Down," a long term health program for Persons with Down Syndrome.  Through  the love and support of volunteers, doctors, partners and family, access to health services was provided to over 150 children and adults with down syndrome.  I realized that the love and understanding of the society can play a crucial part in everyone's journey because  with proper medical attention and support from family and the community, people with down syndrome can live a normal life .  Our love for them can make a huge difference. I believe this is the greatest kind of love.  Free medical check-up, vaccination, laboratory and x-ray tests were provided. Free eyeglasses and medici

This is part of the Watsons' Health Fair.  During the consultation, your scalp will be magnified in order to actually check if your follicles are healthy. It is a perfect way to find out if you should be concerned about falling and thinning hair.
