How to Spend Your Summer with a Bang? + Giveaway

Image
Things that come into mind when summer is mentioned are waterparks, beach, out of town trips like Boracay, Batangas, Palawan and Puerto Galera or any place where swimsuits, sunnies and sunblock is a must-have. However, last Wednesday, I was fortunate to discover a very unique and awesome experience at Stronghand Shooting Range.  Stronghand Shooting Range takes pride being known as a teaching range. Mr. Alfred M. Zaballa, Range Officer was very patient and fun while giving us tips and reminders.  As beginners, we attended the basic course, "The Proper & Practical Pistol" where we were taught: The 4 Rules of Gun Safety How to Handle a Pistol How to Clear a Pistol How to Shoot a Target The basic course can be completed in one session. Normally, it lasts 1.5 hours with live firing. They also offer Advance Classes which covers fast target acquisition, timed shooting, twin tamps, target traverse, quick reloading and a lot more.

Why Summer is the best season of all time?

Image
Aside from my birthday in May, I love summer because there are a lot of things you can do. The days are long and it's mostly warm and sunny.  For me, summer means going to the beach, taking out of town trips, BBQ parties and of course, enjoying the outdoors. However, we should never forget about our  best summer bestfriend for our skin. Dermplus Moisturizing Sunblock is the answer to your skin problems this season. It is formulated with unbeatable UVA and UVB filters to protect your skin in the harsh ultraviolet radiation from the sun. Dermplus sunblock physically blocks and reflects light and it also helps heal skin damage caused by over-exposure to the sun.   Dermplus Sunblock is available in different SPFs like SPF 24 that is recommended for morena skin and for indoor use, SPF 35 for fair skin and SPF 80 and 130 for extreme outdoor activities. Use Dermplus Moisturizing Sunblock and worry no more about the harmful Ultra Violet A (UVA) and Ultra Violet B (UVB) rays.

Medicard: A Must-Have for Every Freelancer

Image
Working from home as a freelancer was one of the best decisions that I had made in 2013. I was able to say goodbye to the horrors of everyday commute while earning more compared to my old job. It was a dream come true.  In May 2014, my fairy tale ended when I got a very bad attack of asthma and needed to see the doctor. I realized I did not have my HMO card anymore which was a benefit from my previous employer. The consultation fee alone was Php 750 plus the tests. I am not used to paying for medical expenses and I just felt it was money down the drain.  I was thinking, "What if I did not have money?", "Do I have to wait for payday before I can see a doctor?" It is such a nightmare to be sick and broke at the same time. Immediately, I decided I am getting a personal plan from one of HMOs so, I did my research and found out that these plans are not cheap. Definitely worth the investment but not cheap.  Then, I had to go back to the doctor again for

Boost your Creativity at Tuscany at McKinley Hills Summer Art Sessions

Summer is not all about going to the beach, partying and getting a tan. I remember when I was a kid, I spent my summer vacations in ballet class. I believe that summer spent in productive activities is way better than just staying at home and playing. This is the best time to learn a new skill.  No idea what activities to take? Then, the Summer Art Sessions at Tuscany at McKinley Hills, Taguig is the perfect choice for you.  Starting April 19, Megaworld Lifestyle Malls in partnership with Manila Workshops will be running a weekend arts and craft workshop series happening every Sunday until May 10 from 1 - 5 in the afternoon.  What's unique about these summer activities is that the participants wouldn't be cramped in a single location with different classes going on. Instead different restaurants will become the venue for each art activity. During the media launch, we were lucky to have the mini workshop about the different art activities.  1. Basic

Easter Celebration at Fairview Terraces : Was it a Yay or a Nay?

Image
We were expecting heavy traffic last Sunday because of the influx of returning travelers from their Holy Week escapade. Thus, we decided to join the Easter Celebration at Fairview Terraces instead which was very close to our home.  I have always loved Fairview Terraces however, I was pretty disappointed how things were yesterday. In order to get a pass for their Easter activities at the Activity Center, you need to purchase at least Php 500 non-food items.  With this purchase requirement, I decided to buy something I do not really need in order to get in. Claiming the tickets was easy and there was no line since claiming started a few days before the celebration.  Based on their poster, there would be a fair, craft room, kitchen room and an egg hunting activity.  Source: https://www.facebook.com/FairviewTerraces At exactly 2pm, they opened the activity center. All kids were given loot bags full of candies.  We were asked to fall in line however I h

Animal Neglect is a Form of Animal Cruelty.

Image
Being an animal lover is not about wanting to have animals in your home. Being a true animal lover is being capable of taking good care of them, being responsible for their welfare FOREVER, keeping them safe and not neglecting them when they are old and sick. It does not end by giving them food and water but it is about spending time with them, making them feel secured and loved. We should always keep in mind that we are the only ones they have. I started being a "REAL" pet parent almost 10 years ago. I was given a puppy and named him Crumpy.  This little furbaby had totally changed my view about animal welfare. I was able to see that they are not simply "animals." They are living creatures with feelings, needs and "mind." He can understand what is happening.  Being together made me realized these things. Whenever we say we'll be going out to the mall, I can see and feel his excitement. He knows what "mall" "SM" and &
