I was invited to the special advance screening of Pare, Mahal  Mo Raw Ako held at the Cine Adarna of UP. The movie was spearheaded by Michael Pangilinan together with Edgar Allan Guzman. Of course you know the song, and you might be wondering how they came up with the movie plot and maybe imagining the scenes from the movie. Before we go on further, let me enlighten you already. The movie was tastefully done in a manner that this is not another "baklaan" movie or "make fun of the becky" kind. I was also surprised and at the same time saw another angle of how our LGBT friends are going through in their lives especially if they have situations same as in the movie. I have LGBT friends and sometimes we only see them as masarap kasama, masayang ka kwentuhan and mga pang kulit sa mga gala.


Imagine them go through life everyday knowing that not everyone accepts them, or that everyday they pretend not be who they are because they are afraid, or feel bad about coming out because people might not accept them or worst pandirihan sila. This movie was my eye opener, because for the longest time I thought keri na, masayahin naman sila, or keri na mga jokes nila, ok na yun kasi friends ko sila, but they need deeper understanding of their situation. More than the movie itself, this is a lesson for everyone. Okay enough na muna of my senti mode and let us move on to the main cast of the film.


For someone who is new in the field of acting like Michael Pangilinan with no acting workshop means he has it in him, he played well on his role as the gay bestfriend of EA who is apparently in love with him.


They actually have a good chemistry, of course we all know EA who already established his acting skills in different movies and I think he is the best guy to perform this role. But Michael Pangilinan could possibly be a hunk dramatic actor too, he did great without the acting workshop, what more if he'd have a chance to do one. And of course the Superstar Ms. Nora Aunor, is still great, her eyes is the best actress in this film.

I think this movie is for everyone, for a greater understanding of the current situation of our LGBT friends. And oh, you might think this movie is overly dramatic kasi ang drama ng pagsulat ko, let's just say nandun si Joross Gamboa at si Matt Evans so alam na! Go watch the movie once it is out in cinemas! Napapanahon!

I never knew of Apotheca until I was invited to check them out. Apotheca an Integrative Pharmacy is not just any drug stores that we go to everytime we need a quick fix of paracetamol, antibiotics or whatever medicine our Doctors would recommend whenever our body needs one. I was quite surprised and interested when the founder started to tell us about Apotheca.
Compounded medicine, this is their main purpose, who would have thought that we have that here in the Philippines.

What is compounded medicine? It is creating a medicine that is just for you;  personalized.

How is it different from regular meds?
The meds that will be compounded for you is still based on doctors prescriptions and tests. An example, our medicines are usually made by batch like 250mg, 500mg etc but what if based on tests your body just needs 350mg of that medicine, Apotheca can create that for you in juat 24hrs, you just need to have the prescription and Apotheca representatives will communicate with your doctor. Also another instance is, your knees are aching, usually doctors would prescribe a pain reliever, but then strong pain relievers can also do damage on your other internal organs, Apotheca can create a cream for you that you can apply on your knees so no need to take meds orally and into your body.

Yes it is quite new and I was also amazed and at the same time learned a lot about Apotheca, this is an alternative medicine worth trying.

More people especially women nowadays are very concious of their skin, they want it lighter, fairer, smooth and radiant that's why they are willing to try almost any product offered in the market who promises to give what they wanted. But there are some, like me who are afraid of going through the needle and I am also afraid to take oral medicines as it may directly affect my internal organs (tatamaan ang atay mo, ganyan ang sabi nila).

And then here is Thiocell, a product who promises a very good skin (yung makinis, maputi, at glowing) but the difference of Thiocell from other glutathione products is that this is in lozenge form, kinda chewable type or babad-sa-mouth-like-candy ang drama nya. Read on and learn more about Thiocell.


It’s time to wake up to whiter, brighter and more radiant skin with Thiocell, the first and only glutathione supplement in lozenge form.

In our pursuit for a fairer and brighter complexion, Filipinas are often led to try glutathione products that simply don’t deliver as dramatically as they promise. But there’s a more effective and safer product that helps you achieve that radiant glow you’ve always wanted - Thiocell, the premium glutathione that truly delivers.
Proven to be the more superior product in the market, Thiocell is the firstand only oral glutathione in lozenge form. It is clinically proven to reduce pigmentation and achieve healthier, brighter and more beautiful skin in as early as 2 weeks.


The history of innovation
Thiocell is the medical breakthrough patented by Dr. Theodore Hersh, a renowned professor of the Emory University School of Medicine, who has over 20 patents under his name in the development of glutathione and selenium products.
After years of research and clinical study, he discovered a newer, safer, and more effective way for the body to absorb and use glutathione.
It is well known that glutathione offers countless benefits. Not only does it help in skin whitening, it also boosts your immune system,enabling the body to fight off free radicals and prevents further damage at the cellular level, which causes skin aging.
“There may be hundreds of products available in the market, but women should be wary because there is a far more superior and successful method to achieving whiter skin,“ explains Director and COO of Brady Pharma, Rameash Tenambhat Krishnamurthy.

Thiocell was first introduced in the Philippines in 2013, and has since become the favoured and must trusted partner of dermatologists, not only in the country but around the world. Brady Pharma, in association with Dr. Hersh, had commercialized this unique product, and has the rights to market and distribute Thiocell globally.
The secret to Thiocell’s outstanding performance lies in three key fundamentals: the GCS synergy, Lozenge delivery, and the science of premium whitening.
GCS Synergy

Thiocell, unlike any other product, is formulated using a safe but potent combination of L-Glutathione, Vitamin C and L-Selenomethionine. This synergistic balance of key ingredients not only primes the body to absorb glutathione more effectively, but encourages the natural production of more glutathione in the body. So you enjoy double the benefits of skin whitening, anti-aging, and an improved, healthy immune system.
Aside from the three major components, Thiocell also contains Vitamin D and Grapeseed Extract, which boost the clinical benefits of glutathione.
Lozenge Form: Optimal Absorption
Other products may claim to be equal because they each contain 500mg of glutathione, but how much of it is really absorbed in the body? Thiocell differentiates itself in this aspect, promising optimal absorption, through its unique and more effective method of glutathione delivery– Lozenge form.
The grape-flavored lozenge is dissolved in the oral cavity and can be consumed safely. Since Thiocell is absorbed through the oral cavity, all the active ingredients enter the systemic circulation intact, and that ensures highest efficacy.
“Unlike Thiocell, glutathione capsules lose much of its potency because when a capsule is ingested, it goes through several metabolic processes and passes through several organs like the stomach and intestines in the digestive tract. With Thiocell, the glutathione dissolves immediately in your mouth and is directly absorbed into the body through the oral cavity. This in effect reduces the damaging oxidative stress on organs,” adds Rameash.
Fast and effective, you are assured that nothing of the 500 mg of Glutathione goes to waste.
Science: What the experts have to say
Thiocell is indeed an exceptional product, and has been clinically proven to be more effective.  No longer are you wasting essential nutrients that are lost in metabolism, and no longer will you need to suffer painful injections and bruising caused by IV glutathione injections. You can achieve a healthier, more radiant glow safely and quickly.
In the clinical study* conducted in the Philippines, which tested the efficacy of Thiocell in Filipino women, the results were far more convincing because patients experienced skin lightening in as early as two weeks. Thiocell undoubtedly delivers.
By end of 8th week, 100% of patients reported lighter and brighter skin. Even on the cellular level, the Mexameter readings (a tool used to measure the color of the skin) showed a significant reduction in melanin production and pigmentation. The studies also confirmed that Thiocell is safe for long-term use.
Supported by science, confirmed by doctors - Thiocell is, indeed, the more trusted product when it comes to achieving whiter, brighter and more beautiful skin.

Thiocell is the product of Brady Pharma, and is available in all WATSONS outlets nationwide and available for order through www.lazada.com

Can't get over taking your selfies? Still downloading additional apps to create that perfect look for your photos? Plain black phones are boring? Worry no more because the OPPO F1 Selfie Expert is here! Read on and discover more...

Global electronics and technology service provider OPPO locally launched their first phone of the year, the OPPO F1.

Boasting an amazing front camera, the F1 has been dubbed the “Selfie Expert,” thanks to its mix of hardware and software working together to make every selfie fantastic. This was emphasized during the launch, with the event setup designed similar to that of a photography studio as guests were given free use of the F1.



Built-in Styling Team

At 8 megapixels, the OPPO F1’s front camera has an 84-degree-wide angle camera lens with f/2.0 aperture, and a ¼-inch sensor that allows 40 percent more light to enter the camera than an f/2.4 aperture lens. 

It comes with Beauty 3.0+ and eight various filters, which brighten the skin and remove blemishes, and a display that can double as flash in low-light environments. Both the camera’s hardware and software work together as if the OPPO F1 has a built-in styling team that will glam the user up in no time.

The rear camera is equally amazing, with a 13-megapixel sensor, f/2.2 aperture lens, Pure Image 2.0+ features, and a number of customizations to fit the user’s photo needs.

Exquisite Design and Reliable Performance

The first in OPPO’s new camera-focused F series, the F1, was designed with the elegant aesthetic and quality that has become the brand’s staple.

Available in two colors, Gold and Rose Gold, the F1’s design offers durability and style. The fine and delicate smoothening of zircon and sand blasting create a back cover that has a velvet-like softness despite being made of metal. The 5-inch HD screen is protected by a 2.5D Corning Gorilla Glass coating and aluminum housing.

Under the hood is a power-packed octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 616 SoC with four cores at 1.7GHz and four cores at 1.2GHz, Adreno 204 GPU, and 3GB RAM that runs OPPO’s ColorOS 2.1 as smoothly as possible. 

Below are the OPPO F1’s specifications:

Operating System: ColorOS2.1, based on Android 5.1 
Processor: Qualcomm Snapdragon 616, Octa-core
GPU: Adreno 405
RAM: 3 GB
Storage: 16 GB (Expandable up to 128GB)
Battery Capacity: 2,500mAh
Screen Size: 5 inches
Display Type: IPS TFT
Resolution: HD (1280x720 pixels)
Rear Camera: 13-megapixel
Front Camera: 8-megapixel
SIM Card Type: Dual-SIM (micro-SIM card and nano-SIM card)

Priced at only P11,990, the F1 is available at OPPO concept stores and authorized dealers nationwide.

New Brand Endeavors for 2016

Besides the F1, OPPO Philippines also announced major partnerships with several organizations.

This year, the company is the title sponsor of the PBA Commissioner’s Cup. 

After collaborating with Home Credit last year to bring the OPPO Neo 7 to more consumers in the country, OPPO has also once again partnered with the global consumer-finance provider to offer Filipinos more options to buy the F1. From February 19 to March 31, 2016, even consumers who don’t have credit cards can purchase the new camera phone for as low as P1,299 every month for six months at 0 percent interest rate. The promo is available in 245 partner stores nationwide, in all areas serviced by Home Credit.

OPPO is likewise proud to announce that their phones will now be offered by Philippine telcos. 

For example, the F1 will be available under Smart Communications’ All-in Plan 1200. The postpaid plan is fully consumable and customizable with FlexiBundles. For prepaid users, each purchased F1unit comes with a free Smart SIM that offers a generous 50MB worth of free data every month for six months, and P150 worth of load for every P250 accumulated top up per month for six months.

The OPPO Neo 5s will also be available under Sun Cellular’s Best Value Plan 450, which includes unlimited Sun calls and texts, 250MB of data, and 250 texts to other networks.

If you are looking for a fun but inexpensive activity for you and your family before the summer officially kicks in? Gear up and get your kids' bicycles ready for Kids On Bikes 2016, the first bike carnival competition in the country.
Kids On Bikes is a national fun race to promote good health and wellness for the kids, aiming to foster camaraderie, bonding, and fun for the whole family.

The best Ice Cream I tasted so far, I chose the Nuts About You flavor since I love ice creams with texture or twist. My favorte flavor from the supermarket brands is the Rocky Road  since it has nuts, marshmallows etc. But Carmen's Best Nuts About You made me switch and hopefully it will be available is most supermarkets. (For now they ar avaialable at selected Rustan's and Robinson's supermarkets)



What's the big difference? The price, yes, but the taste and quality is way beyond what you paid for. Malinamnam the milky way as in super and the nuts, I went nuts munching on different types inside. When you see its packaging, you'll think it is bitin but it is not, because it is siksik and they are proud to say na kahit matunaw the ice cream ganun pa rin sya karami. So when you get to see Carmen's Ice Cream anywhere, go try and promise, you won't regret it.

Still can't get enough of AlDub? On February 17 & 24, 10:15 pm watch out for them on Tonight with Arnold Clavio.

Ngayong Miyerkules, tuluy-tuloy pa rin ang selebrasyon ng buwan ng mga puso sa TWAC! Tiyak na mapupuno ng kilig-kwentuhan ang inyong gabi at mapapa-'Aldub You' kayo, dahil sa mga espesyal na panauhin ni igan Arnold Clavio - walang iba kundi ang tinaguriang 'Phenomenal Love Team' na ALDub, na binubuo nina Alden Richards at Maine 'Yaya Dub' Mendoza!
Matatandaang sa mga nakaraang pagbisita ni Alden sa TWAC, 'Tay' kung tawagin ni Alden si igan Arnold Clavio. Kaya naman sa Miyerkules, tila may pormal na pagpapakilalang magaganap sa pagitan nilang tatlo! Ano naman kaya ang masasabi ni igan tungkol kay Maine?
At sa mga inihandang pakulo ni igan, kung saan mabubuking na raw ang tunay na nararamdaman ng dalawa para sa isa't isa, tiyak na kikiligin ang buong Aldub Nation!
Tulad ng challenge na 'Sino ang Mas?'  kung saan malalaman natin ang pagkakaiba at pagkakapareho ng ugali, mga gusto at ayaw nina Alden at Maine. Sino nga kaya sa dalawa ang mas sweet, mas makulit, mas matampuhin at marami pang iba.
Abangan din ang matatamis na mensahe nina Alden at Maine para sa isa’t-isa, sa masaya at nakakikilig na 2-part interview na ito.

Makilahok sa nakatutuwang kwentuhan! I-follow ang TWAC sa twitter: @TWACofficial at gamitin ang hashtag na #ALDUBYOUTWAC #ALDUBONTWAC!
At para malaman ang mga pangyayari behind the scenes, ilike ang aming facebook: www.facebook.com/tonightwitharnoldclavio

With all of his success and very busy schedule, Alden made sure that his 24th birthday is not about just having grand parties, giving back to our community is one of his top priorities, thus visiting and celebrating with the Aeta Community of Bamban was a success.
Good looking guy with a good heart and very hardworking, maybe that is why he is so blessed. Read on...
            
     
GMA Artist Center’s Alden Richards celebrated his 24th birthday with a charity event for the Aeta community in Sitio Gayaman, Bamban, Tarlac last February 8, 2016. Even if the outreach was held more than a month after his real birthday, which falls on January 2, Alden was okay with celebrating it a bit late because it was for a good cause.

The outreach program began very early in the morning with a program hosted by comedienne Tess Bomb. Everyone in the Aeta community was very excited to meet Alden and began screaming, cheering and clapping for him as soon as he arrived. Pastor Rico from Gayaman Hope Sungnae Presbyterian church located within the community gave the opening remarks.

One highlight of the program was a surprise dance number given by the Aetas. Alden was so touched and happy by the gesture he jumped right in and began dancing with them. The GMA Artist Center talent and Kapuso heartthrob also gamely posed for photos with members of the Aeta community.

The fun morning ended with a lot of donations and giveaways which Alden personally distributed to children and adults composed of 350 families within the Aeta community. Apart from personally distributing the goods, Alden also donated money from his own pocket to help the Aeta community.  Some of the items that were given out were rice, salt, sugar, coffee, soy sauce, vinegar, toiletries, shoes, bags, biscuits and kids’ apparel. According to Alden, he personally chose to help this particular group because not a lot of people know about the plight of the Aetas within the isolated community and he hopes that the outreach program will open people’s eyes to the situation there. Located on the mountain peaks of Tarlac, most of the houses don’t even have electricity or enough food to sustain their daily needs.

The event was made possible with the help of GMA Artist Center,  Land Rover Club of the Philippines, Pampanga Off Roaders Club Inc., Gopez Sisters, Dona Maria Premium Quality Rice, Boardwalk, PhilPlans, Tide, Downy, Gard shampoo, Cadbury Dairy Milk Chocolate, Sweet Kiss Custom Cakes, Datu Puti, McDonald's and Hapee Toothpaste.

It was my first time to celebrate Chinese New Year at the place where the culture is really alive; Ongpin-Binondo-Chinatown. I accepted the invitation from Chinatown Lai Lai Hotel to experience their celebration. The re-opening of Lai Lai Hotel which was long known as the Binondo Suites had a change in management which brought about the over all renovation of the whole building. Now, Lai Lai hotel has the fresh vibe of a brand new hotel. Aside from a very functional lobby, checking-in has a twist, they will ask for your birthday and do some feng-shui kind of assessment to which part and floor should your room be, cool right?! So you know that your stay is not just about relaxation but also is in line with your birth sign, feeling lucky ang effect kasi na feng shui bongga!

We were given a tour on what their rooms look like. Standard and Deluxe rooms are good for couples or bff's because it is good for two and the space ia just enough for some comfortable rest and relaxation and comes with buffet breakfast. Personally, I am more interested when I saw the Superior and Executive rooms, mainly because they have a mini sala and dining area, not like in other hotels that their high end rooms just have a 2-seater coffee table. I got excited becasue of the space or condo-like set up, nakakatuwa na may sala  yet the price range is very affordable, check out the photos para ma gets nyo yung kina aliw ko lol!





Executive Room has a door going to the room


Anyway, all rooms are equipped with cable television, hot and cold shower and WiFi (yes!) Per room yan ha, not like others who offers their wifi in common areas lang like their lobby. What's more is they have a floor exclusively for functions and videoke. Yes!  Rooms with videoke set up is available for those who feel like singing their hearts out as a form of bonding or just plainly to have fun, super nakaka aliw that they have this. But of course the best way to enjoy your stay is to go around Chinatown, my husband and I has long been planning to do that, but because malayo we are hesistant, but now that I discovered Lai-Lai Hotel, which is an affordable yet comfortable place to stay, I think we could achieve that plan soon.



Treat your self to their Spa area


P.S. I enjoyed the dragon dance and hopes that it gives us all good luck for 2016 :-)
Thank you Lai-Lai Hotel for the tour!

Love is Blind stars these 4 major characters; Derek Ramsey, Solenn Heussaff, Kean Cipriano and Kiray Celis. The movie evolves on old myth of creating potions just so the love of your life would probably and finally love you back. But of course if Kiray is in a movie, expect to be blown away by her comedic acts, yes she nailed this one and this movie was like really made for her.

What to expect:
1.       The still very hot Derek Ramsay can still make you go oooh!
2.       Surprisingly, Solenn and Derek has chemistry, yes super nakaka kilig sila.
3.       Kean can actually make you fall for him with his pa-cute scenes.
4.       Kiray… this is her time to shine bright like a diamond in the sky.

I didn’t expect the movie could make my panga go ngawit na ngawit from start to finish. What’s great about this is super good vibes lang sya, no overly dramatic scenes and the chemistry is overflowing from everyone sa cast. I love how Direk Paul Laxamana balanced everything, not the usual movie plot na, masaya sa start and then come middle too dramatic or tragic and then finish it up with very light get together- happily ever after scenes that when you come out of the cinema, you’ll feel affected sobra na imbes na naka relax ka eh mabigat sa pakiramdam. But of course we have different preferences and reasons when we go watch a movie, so when you just want something light, funny and would make you feel that falling in love is such a beautiful feeling, I would recommend watching Love Is Blind. Yup, sorry no additional kwentos for now, but do drop by here if you get to watch it and tell me what you think.

Chika Cheers!

I was one of the chosen ones to cover the 6th Grand Baby Fair which happened at the Mega Trade Halls of SM Megamall. Baby Company and its partner brands were all present to give moms and dads an opportunity to shop for their baby's needs and the best thing about this event was the huge discounts that we could avail. Megatrade halls 1,2 and 3 was fully packed with excited pregnant moms, dads looking after their kids and some doting grand parents too. At the center of all the kumukutitap sales is a set-up stage where pocket programs were held, there were also games with cute prizes for babies pa rin syempre. Talks on parenting and how to take care of our babies werw showcased and I've learned a lot especially about not using baby powders on our little ones since it could possibly cause allergic reactions that may lead to asthma na hindi ako naniniwala before, kahit mama ko lol!


As a first time mom, I was so thrilled to actually be on this event, I even saw our baby's crib that we bought last year and it is marked 30% off,  so sayang, but was able to buy other stuff like diaper, we wanted to try MamyPoko, cotton buds, bottle holders from Bebeta, pillows from Disney, feeding bottles from Pigeon, baby wipes from Pigeon also, baby towels of Blooms, and room decorative wall stickers from Bulilits and Enfants bottle and nipple cleaner. Too bad we were not able to avail of the Swag Bags that u can get pag naka Php3,500 ka, too many shoppers so nagkaubusan kaloka!



The line was long, as in very long but don't fret  it was moving so fast din naman and well managed by people assigned to it. Also the line even if it is that long and pasikot-sikot sa area, pwde ka pang maka check out ng items while passing by the booths, we added a few pa while in line so medyo napadami pa kami but was worth it. This Grand Baby Fair is running on its 6th year and now I know why this event is very much anticipated by a lot of parents and parents to be, you get a whole lot of discounts plus learnings and shopping in one big event. Looking forward to the next year of the Grand Baby Fair.
