Experience superior sleep with Uratex Premium Mattress

Posted On Saturday, June 20, 2015 by Cha Sy 1 comments

Experience superior sleep with Uratex Premium Mattress


Did you know that getting a full night’s sleep is actually good for your health? A number of studies have shown that sleep affects your well being in different ways. Researchers have found that there is a link between insufficient sleep and serious health problems, such as heart disease, heart attacks, diabetes and obesity. Likewise, lack of sleep lowers your pain threshold, places you at a greater risk for injuries, affects your mood, causes you to be hungrier and eat more, and affects clear thinking.

As a matter of fact according to Dr. Deborah A. Bernardo, Head of the Comprehensive Sleep Disorders Center and Chief of the Section of Neurology at St. Luke's Medical Center, "Insomnia is the most common sleep problem. Shift work disorders are getting more common because of the BPO, entertainment and media industry. Obstructive sleep apnea, which manifests as loud snoring and stopping of breathing during sleep, is also very frequently unrecognized."

Uratex, the leader in providing the best sleep solutions, has been supporting the advocacy on the importance of a good night’s sleep. Through tie ups with the Philippine Society of Sleep Medicine and with the studies of Dr. Deborah A. Bernardo.

"Sleep is as important as diet and exercise for good health. It is necessary for clear thinking and memory formation, protection of the body against diseases and repair of cells and tissues of the body." Dr. Bernardo elaborates more.

This is the reason why finding the right mattress is important.

Uratex constantly innovates the way people sleep by using the latest in technology, the best design, and luxurious materials. This is called Sleep Science, and it is this discipline that is behind the creation and design of Uratex Premium Mattress Collection.


Uratex Premium Mattress Collection features the best materials for soothing sleep. A variety of state-of-the-art foam are used in creating each mattress, including Senso Memory foam, latex foam, and Hydragel foam. Used in combination with premium pocket springs, Tencel fabric and 3D spacer fabric, you are assured of quiet sleep at the end of the day.

Uratex Premium Mattress has crafted four unique mattress collections that take into account each person’s needs. Each mattress was designed to specifically fit your body’s needs for a more personalized sleep solution.

The Perfect Serenity Collection is the very definition of perfection. The combination of innovative foam and fabric technologies provides tranquil sleep the moment your body touches this mattress. The advanced 3D spacer fabric supplies ample ventilation throughout its surface for constant airflow for a cool, fresh feeling as you sleep. It also ensures that your mattress is clean and fresh even with constant use.

The Senso Memory collection utilizes memory foam that conforms to your body shape to evenly distribute pressure for a more comfortable sleep. The Visco-elastic foam used in this mattress remembers the shape of your body for a personalized sleep experience. The use of Tencel fabric in the main panels also keeps the mattress cool and fresh as you sleep.

The Premium Touch collection combines high performance pocket springs and world-class materials. Each individually wrapped pocket spring follows the shape of your body, even as you turn on your bed. To add comfort, the mattress is topped with natural latex foam to relieve the body’s pressure points. It is covered with Tencel fabric making it soft and smooth to the touch.
For those requiring better support as they sleep, the Orthocare collection supports the body’s key pressure points and keeps them aligned to reduce aches when you wake up in the morning. The inter-connecting cell structure in high-quality foam distributes pressure equally and evenly, letting your body feel relaxed while you sleep. It also uses 3D spacer fabric to keep your mattress cool and fresh, while Tencel fabric adds a soft and smooth feel.

All mattresses under the Uratex Premium Collection are treated with Sanitized, a technology that keeps mattresses free from bacteria or microbes. It protects your body, so you sleep on a mattress that is clean and comfortable.

Uratex Premium Mattress, the leader in the premium bedding industry in the country, and Our Home, the leading home and furniture store, collaborate by providing the public a chic and modern venue for finding the right mattresses for their homes.

Dindo Medina, Uratex Corporate Sales Director, says the partnership between Uratex and Our Home will provide a venue where the public can find sleep solutions that will help improve the quality of their lives.

Medina also shared that Uratex have guests that will share their experiences in using Uratex Premium Mattress. Special guests would be actress-model Solenn Heusaff, 2013 Ms. Universe 3rd Runner-up Ariella Arida, Brazilian model Vanessa Matsunaga, celebrity chef Rolando Laudico, DJs Sam YG, Slick Rick and Tony Toni of Boys’ Night Out, and fashion blogger Camille Co. “These individuals possess unique qualities that have made them role models in their respective fields, the same way that the Uratex Premium Mattress Collection will become the benchmark for luxurious soothing sleep”, concludes Medina.

What to do during an earthquake?

Posted On Monday, May 25, 2015 by Cha Sy 0 comments

What to do during an earthquake?

DROP, COVER, HOLD is your best plan during an earthquake to save your life.  Avoid fire places and the kitchen. Turn off the stove if you happen to be cooking . Don't panic. But don't be complacent.  A 7.2-magnitude earthquake will be so strong it will likely be felt even in cities without the West Valley Fault.

I understand that safer buildings are crucial. But with the non-compliance with building codes and the rampant graft and corruption in our midst, I seriously doubt if the very home where we are living is earthquake-proof.


Each one of us must take precautionary action to protect our homes and properties against earthquakes.

The best way one can survive is to stay as low as you can beside a furniture – that’s beside, not under but if there is a sturdy table then stay under the table, cover your nape and head then hold.

TAGAYTAY CITY: Best for Cooling Down This Summer Heat

TAGAYTAY CITY: Best for Cooling Down This Summer Heat


How I wish I could go to Tagaytay!  Unfortunately, I had an on-and-off headache the past few weeks :-(  I am not in the best of health these days, that's why I hardly attend events.

Traveling or commuting in this kind of heat is suicide! The bad 42 degrees summer heat that has already killed an American in a resort in Albay is also making the lives of people in Metro Manila a living hell. 

Naks, nakarating na sa impyerno ang peg ha ha ha!.

Pero seriously, this temperature is giving me really bad headaches which are a no no for an aneurysm survivor like me.

My blood pressure is on the high side and nag e error talaga ang digital bp monitor sa sobrang taas ng bp ko! Ilang klase ng gamot ang pinaiinom sa akin ng doctor ko pero parang wa effect.

So, sa inyong lahat alalahanin ninyo health is wealth! Alagaan ang sarili. Love yourself. Take care and enjoy Tagaytay!
