Be Limitless with SvelT’i

In this day and age where technology has inevitably become a part of our daily lives, we are subconsciously living limitlessly with almost everything readily available at the tip of our fingers. It has led to so many discoveries, better establishments, and better luxuries and has dramatically changed our daily lives. From the way we communicate to speedy internet connection, from the academe to various industries, and from healthcare to aesthetics. Even in aesthetics and especially in the field of beauty, technology has been a huge driving force behind their huge improvements.  

For the past two years, SvelT’i has been creating sweeping possibilities that unlock the customers’ health and beauty potentials while satisfying their needs and demands. To keep up with the changing times and as a way to say ‘Thank you’ for the customers’ continued trust, SvelT’i now offers a new set of services that aim to further defy the limits that constrict an individual’s health and attractiveness. Starting April, the clinic has been offering the latest techniques in minimally invasive treatments- from botox, dermal fillers, non-surgical nose lifts (HIKO), platelet-rich plasma (vampire facelift), mesotherapy, sclerotherapy, to thread lift.



BOTOX
Botox is a neuromodulator that blocks the signal from the nerve to muscle, preventing the muscles to contract, hence preventing dynamic wrinkles to appear and worsen. When frown, forehead, bunny lines and crow’s feet are smoothened, an overall vitality is observed in the face.




DERMAL FILLERS
Filler injections are used to smooth moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, shape facial contours and add to volume loss to aging face. It is used to heighten the nose, transform tired looking sunken under eyes to a fresher look, rejuvenate or make the lips plumper, add volume to the cheeks and even augment the chin to make it more proportion to the face.

Filler injection is a lunchtime procedure which gives an instant result.

HIKO
HIKO is a non-surgical noselift procedure that enhances the feature of the nose. It is an extremely popular procedure which gives the nose more definitive structure and lifts the nose tip. This involves inserting threads into the nose bridge and the tip. Combining nose threads and nose fillers will give you long lasting, higher and sharper nose creating the nose you've always wanted with minimal downtime.


 PLATELET RICH PLASMA (PRP) / VAMPIRE FACELIFT
The platelet-rich plasma or vampire facelift includes drawing blood from the patient, separating the platelets then injecting it back into the skin.  The platelets are high in growth factor that helps stimulate the skin to regenerate and aid in cell turnover, making it look youthful and vibrant. This procedure can be done not just on the face but on other aging parts of the body like the neck and hands. It also aids in addressing hair loss or thinning.

MESOTHERAPY
This procedure employs multiple injections of fat-burning products and plant extracts into the subcutaneous fat. It targets localized and stubborn fats that are hard to eliminate even with exercise. This procedure has been performed all over the globe for over fifty years because of its effectiveness. Other indication for the use of mesotherapy aside from weight loss is cellulite.


Mesotherapy combined with SvelT’i's world-class slimming lasers produces faster and superior results.
  
SCLEROTHERAPY
Spider veins that hinder the flaunting of smooth and toned leg scan are treated with sclerotherapy. Sclerotherapy is used to treat blood vessels like spider veins and smaller varicose veins. A sclerosing solution is injected into the unwanted veins which causes them to shrink and dissolve over a period of weeks as the body naturally absorbs the treated vein. Sclerotherapy in combination with SvelT’i's Laser Vein treatment makes a recurrence of unsightly veins less likely.



THREAD LIFTING
Thread lifting is a popular, non-invasive procedure that aims to reduce deep lines, facial folds, and sagging in the most natural way. These treatments are used mainly on the face but can also be applied on the neck and other body areas. SvelT’i is offering two types of thread lifting: V lift and Beauty thread.



These procedures can stimulate the production of collagen the protein which gives our skin the youthful glow, causing tightness in the area. All types of threads tighten the surrounding tissues and increase blood supply resulting in a healthier and tighter looking skin making you look five to ten years younger. Now, who would’ve thought that a nonsurgical thread lift can give youthful longevity?

These minimally invasive treatments together with the existing noninvasive procedures of SvelT’i assures the client that he or she can be transformed into a younger and better-looking person with no surgery and minimal downtime. And with this kind of technology, it’s absolutely possible to take a few years off the face with lesser expense and pain, unlike surgery.

Living limitless begins with a choice and everyone has that choice. The choice to live a life without bounds. The choice to be a better and beautiful you! With all these new offerings from SvelT’i, there are no restrictions, no stopping points, and nothing will hold a person back from making herself feel well and look beautiful.

Things You Should Know About Itchyworm's "Di Na Muli" Music Video

Di Na Muli was written in 2016 by long-time friends Jazz Nicolas and Wally Acolola. They entered the song into the 5th Philippine Popular (PhilPop) Music Festival, performed by The Itchyworms, where it won the grand prize. Now, in 2018, the song has been given new life in the official soundtrack of the hit film Sid & Aya (Not A Love Story) (Viva Films, starring Dingdong Dantes and Anne Curtis, directed by Irene Villamor).


Somewhere in between PhilPop and Sid & Aya, the Itchyworms set out to immortalize the song. The result was a visually stunning and emotional music video, directed by Paolo Abella. Help also came along in the form of the video's co-director Juno Oebanda, a longtime friend of the band, and the generous indulgence of none other than the Cultural Center of the Philippines. The link to the CCP is Teddy Hilado (d. 2015), recognized as the father of lighting design in Philippine theater, who is also the uncle of Oebanda


The song's themes of love, loss, and words left unspoken, are embodied in the elegant performances of Rosky Balahadia Hilado (Teddy's widow, formerly of the Bayanihan Philippine Dance Company) and Carissa Adea (Ballet Philippines), and in the video's sweeping visuals, all captured within the hallowed halls of the CCP. The music video seeks to serve as a loving tribute to Teddy, whose influence is still felt and recognized to this day.

The Itchyworms are now proud to share what is probably the first-ever music video shot inside the Cultural Center of the Philippines, and extend heartfelt thanks to those who helped bring the music video to fruition.

If you love this song, here's the Di Na Muli Lyrics:


Di Na Muli
Words and Music by Jazz Nicolas and Wally Acolola
Performed by The Itchyworms

Verse:
Nung araw kay tamis ng ating buhay
Puno ng saya at ng kulay
Di mauulit muli

Ang oras kapag hinayaang lumipas
Madarama mo hanggang bukas
Di mababawi muli

Chorus:
Ang dami daming bagay na hindi naman kailangan
Kung pwede lang bawasan natin ang mga tampuhan
Hindi mo lang alam hindi mo pa nararanasan
Kahapon sana natin di mo na pinahirapan
Patawad muli
Di na muli

Verse:
Ang oras kapag hinayaang lumipas
Madarama mo hanggang bukas
Di mababawi muli

(Instrumental)

Bridge:
At natapos ang himas ng sandal
Di kukubli aking tinig
Nang lumipas na't di man lang nasabi
Salamat hanggang sa muli

Chorus:
Ang dami daming bagay na hindi naman kailangan
Kung pwede lang bawasan natin ang mga tampuhan
Hindi mo lang alam hindi mo pa nararanasan
Kahapon sana natin di mo na pinahirapan
Patawad muli
Di na muli

Binawi buhay mo ng walang sabi
Binubulong ko sa sarili
Mahal kita hanggang sa huli

Mahal ko hanggang sa huli

Top 5 Things To Do During Rainy Days



Val and I love the rain. It actually means more time to spend together. If it is really not that important, we actually cancel our plans of going out and simply just stay at home. Personally, I consider the rain as a blessing from God especially after I saw how much it meant to the farmers during El NiƱo. 

Thus, we came up with a list of top 5 things to do at home when it's raining. 

1. Movie Marathon or Binge Watching - This may be the most popular thing to do when it's raining. Whether you decide to watch a movie or catch up with your missed TV series, just make sure to have popcorn ready. 

2. Get More Sleep - Don't miss the chance to get your much deserved rest. This bed weather is a perfect timing for you get more sleep. Make sure to have at least 8 hours. :) 



3. Give Yourself a DIY Pampering Session - Whether it's hot oil, deep conditioning, own mani-pedicure session, or simply cutting your nails, take this opportunity to take care of yourself. A DIY pampering session is the one of the greatest ways to express self-love. 

4. Hobby Time - With our fast-paced lifestyle, we may often forget our little passions such as writing, drawing, crafting or singing. Do what you love most, find the time to pursue your passion. 

5. Keep Yourself Warm - It may be raining outside but it's not enough reason to get cold. Make sure to keep yourself warm by enjoying MAS Soup Sarap



It's so easy to prepare. You just have to add hot water and you'll be able to enjoy a creamy and delicious soup in less than one minute. It is available in 3 flavors: Chicken and Corn, Seafood and Mushroom. MAS Soup Sarap is available in all leading supermarkets and 7/11 stores nationwide. 



How about you? Do you have other ideas on what to do during a rainy day? Feel free to share your thoughts below. 

ManilaMed’s Cancer Care Center

Cancer is one the most dreaded diseases and can mean the end of the world for patients including their families. However, this should not be the case because there is still hope against "The Big C." Early detection of cancer can make a difference and increase the chance of successful treatment. 

According to the World Health Organization, recognizing possible warning signs of cancer and taking prompt action can lead to early diagnosis. Thus, it is very important that the first step which is screening and diagnosis must be made by an expert. Access to sufficient facilities is also very crucial. After all, there is no room for errors and every minute counts. 

Thus, learning about ManilaMed’s Cancer Care Center provides the peace of mind that there is a place which delivers compassionate patient care with the best outcome. They help patients #feelbetter during unfortunate and trying times.

Family as a Gift Conference is Happening on June 16 at SMX Moa

FAMILY IS A GIFT Conference is happening on June 16, 2018, 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM at the SMX Convention Center, Mall of Asia Complex, Pasay City. 



This whole day event aims to showcase the gift of the family, its dignity, and high calling, recognize the challenges families go through today, provide tools that will help couples and families confront these challenges in the form of workshops/breakout sessions and exhort families to work together and persevere in building strong, Christ-centered families that will build a strong, Christ-centered society.

The discussion will feature the following topics:

Part 1: Family Is a Gift

1. The family is a gift.
  • Children are born from an act of mutual self-gift; the family is the first environment where we are received as a gift and where we become a gift to another.
  • Being a gift is being in communion. The marriage of husband and wife is the symbol of the communion of the Trinity and the communion of Christ and the Church. Through their mutual self-gift and life-giving union, children are born.

2. The family is called to be a gift to others outside of it, to other families and to those in need of a family’s love, by being a light that reveals God’s plan for humanity. In a world surrounded by so much darkness, the family is called to shine Christ’s light of truth and hope amidst: 
  • Secularism – God has been removed from how we live our lives
  • Relativism – each one dictates his own truth and morality
  • A technological culture that threatens genuine communion and leads to isolation

3. As families we don’t just exist for ourselves; we don’t secure the welfare only of our own children. We exist in a community of families that interact and depend on one other; the weakness of one part affects the whole body.

4. Strong families begin with strong marriages.
  • Marriage is where husband and wife make a total gift of self to each other and become fruitful.
  • Strong marriages allow the light of the family to shine more brightly as it illuminates the way for the children and the future generations, and for other families around it.

Speaker: Fr. Joel Jason, Commissioner on Family and Life, Archdiocese of Manila. Professor of Fundamental Moral Theology, Sexuality and Integrity, Bioethics, and Special Moral Theology at San Carlos Seminary. Parish priest at the Mary Mirror of Justice Parish in Comembo, Makati.

Part 2: Strong Marriages, Strong Families

  • Strong families do not just happen. They require hard work, time, and a solid sense of connectedness between spouses.

Speaker: Lissy Ann Puno, counseling psychologist and Certified Imago Relationship Therapist in private practice in Singapore where she is the co-founder of the International Counseling and Psychology Centre; has 25 years of experience working on psychological health and wellness in the US, the Philippines, Thailand, Malaysia, and now Singapore; author of “Affairs Don’t Just Happen” a book on protecting marriages and long-term relationships; workshop presenter for the “Getting the Love You Want” couples workshop.

Part 3: Family: A Light in the Darkness

5. The family is threatened but not helpless. As families, we will not allow the darkness to overwhelm us and extinguish our light.
  • Parents need to take charge of the future and welfare of their families while also working to help other families.
  • Parents and children need to be equipped with practical, relevant ways to work together to address issues that beset them and the culture in which they live.
  • Families working together create a bigger, brighter light that will reveal and bring to the reality God’s plan for His children.

6. Strong, Christ-centered families together build a strong, Christ-centered society.

Speaker: Bro. Melo Villaroman, CFC Chairman; Operating Vice-President, United Laboratories



Registration fee is at Php500, but if you sign up before June 10, 2018, you only have to pay Php350. For more details, visit http://familyisagift.com/family-is-a-gift-conference/

App Review: PERA SWIPE

It has been a week since I have downloaded the latest popular app, Pera Swipe. If you have no idea what I am talking about. Pera Swipe is an efficient all-in-one lock screen platform for Filipino smartphone users where they reward users with points that can be redeemed for mobile load and other prizes. You can read more about it here.



Some may say that Pera Swipe seems too good to be true but it is actually a win-win solution for both users and advertisers. A definite innovation in digital marketing that is easy, rewarding and actually helpful.

Like last Monday, we were thinking what to buy for dinner and was having a hard time deciding. Thanks to Pera Swipe, I saw their post and we got ourselves lechon manok from Andoks. Pera Swipe shows its users relevant and useful ads. 


However the ads are not the best thing about it. Instead, the points that can be redeemed for rewards is the main reason why you should download the app. 

And there are several ways to earn points aside from swiping. Based on my experience, I was able to earn 1,200+ points in 3-days enough to get me a Php 10 prepaid load. Thus, I can say that getting rewards is very attainable. Just remember to always check the EVENTS Tab in order to participate in different promotions to earn additional points. 

--------------------------------------

Here are some questions raised by other readers about Pera Swipe. 

1. How do they earn from it? 

This is not confirmed but I believe Pera Swipe earns through product advertisements shown through the app. 

2. Does it load up your phone with unnecessary stuff? 

The good news is it doesn't load your phone with unnecessary stuff. I did not notice any changes to the performance of my device. 

3. How long has the app been around? 


The app’s grand opening was last June 1, 2017 but it has been around a couple of months before. It is now on its version 2.0

4. Can I still use this app even if I am a postpaid user? 

Yes, definitely. Aside from prepaid load, you can also redeem Sodexo Mobile Passes that you can use for shopping and dining. 

5. How was the redemption process? 

The redemption process is easy but is on a limited schedule. Prepaid load can only be redeemed from 9AM-9PM.

Sodexo Mobile Pass are redeemed manually. You just have to fill out a google form. Redemption cut-off is every Tuesday (11:59PM) and codes will be sent by Friday. These are delivered to the mobile number and email address provided during the redemption process. 


Also, here are my other observations about Pera Swipe. 

  • You need internet connection to use it. 
  • It does not work on rooted devices. 
So, what are you waiting for? Download now at https://goo.gl/KnFjgL and sign-up using this referral code: mymetrolifestyle and get 500 points instantly!  

Update: You can now get 555 bonus points if you use the code: mymetrolifestyle

Do you have any questions, feel free to comment below.
