Much Ado About the Papal Visit

A lot of people are so pessimistic about the Papal visit. Honestly, I still think it’s a little bit overrated. However, I realized that I must not forget that what it might be to me is not what it means to the other Filipinos who feel blessed by just knowing he is coming to visit our country.

I’ve attended Sunday masses lately and I noticed that by the end of each mass, there’s a special prayer intended to pray for peace and protection during the Papal visit. I noticed that people actually recite it with gusto and their faces even looked hopeful. Sometimes I even feel guilty because I really just regard it as a regular weekend, another day to catch up on laundry and writing. Continue reading »

I Wear Yosi Samra

ys 2

In my job as a PR and Events Coordinator in Davao, it’s understandable how I go to several places in a day. I go to banks, client offices, my office, home, malls, et cetera. What’s more, I drive myself to these places. Sometimes I think all this stress, driving and walking is perhaps what keeps me slim…but really, part of this perk is also having a trusty foot buddy, a Yosi Samra pair. Continue reading »

Train Yourself to Eat Less and Eat Better

 

(from mergingrivers.com)

A lot of people struggle with weight loss. It’s one of the toughest battles we have to fight over and over again. What can we do? Clothes look better on a slim figure. When you’re fit, you also feel better and lighter. Most of all, being not fat is better for our hearts and our health. Maybe we’ll even trick ourselves into living longer, right?

That said, the most foolproof plan is to get on a reliable diet and exercise. This is the truly the best way to go since it’s natural and at the end of the day, it’s healthier. Sure you can spend for radio frequency treatments and liposuction but these procedures cost a lot. So you’re still best with the good old diet and exercise.

If you are one of those people who don’t want to engage in heavy exercise and deathly diets that make you go crazy hungry, what you really need to do is to train yourself to eat less. If you’re lazy, just do a little cardio or yoga on the side and eat less and I tell you, you’ll lose at least a pound per week until you’re at your ideal weight. Continue reading »

The new iPhone came out last month. With that, of course, came excited Apple cult followers, Apple bashers, wanna be tech analysts, social climbers who started scraping the bottom of their bank accounts, and indifferent people who are already happy with their mid-range Samsung or the low-end but super durable Nokia.

If you kinda love it and you feel like you want to jump on the bandwagon, let me remind you, the price tag that came with this “it” phone is a hefty one for the regular working Filipino. Here are the numbers: P33,600 for the 16GB, P38,780 for the 64GB and P43,950 for the 128GB iPhone 6. Pretty hefty, huh? Continue reading »
