The Parisian Macao


The day that I watch "Lovers in Paris" is the day that I wish to go and visit the city of love, Paris also known as the City of Lights. Paris is at the heart of romance, and the Eiffel Tower is at the heart of Paris.

The Parisian Macao, views of the city and hotel await each visitor to the Observation Decks on levels 7 and 37.

My cousin and her family went recently to Macao and had a wonderful stay at Parisian Macao.  

I wish to visit Macao soon.  My brother and I spent one Christmas there a long time ago and had not come back since because of several reasons. But seeing my cousin's recent vacation in Macao had enticed me to visit Macao soon.

BANANA BOAT SIMPLY PROTECT – Protection for the Skin and the Environment


BANANA BOAT SIMPLY PROTECT – Protection for the Skin and the Environment!

We Filipinos love asia novela. I personally love "Running man" and "Goblin". One thing that attracts me to these K-programs are their glass like-skin and youthful look.  Did you know that their secret to their youthful glow is proper sunscreen! UV Radiation is a constant danger indoors as well as outside. While it's understood that taking sun safety precautions is important outside, few people realize they can sustain sun damage indoors, too

In fact, if you're working near a window, chances are you could be exposed to UV rays. The sun emits two types of UV rays that can reach us: UVB rays, which cause sunburns, and UVA rays, which cause premature aging
So we must make it a habit to always use sunblock even inside our homes. 

We should also make it a point to use products that does not only protect but also preserve the environment as much as possible. As you all know the market is flooded with skin care that is detrimental to the environment. 

GOOD NEWS!  Now you can protect your skin from the harmful rays of the sun and protect the environment as well.  Impossible?  Not anymore – thanks to Banana Boat Simply Protect.

BANANA BOAT, the brand synonymous to skin protection just elevated the playing field to a new level with this latest sunscreen lotion – the Banana Boat Simply Protect. 


BANANA BOAT SIMPLY PROTECT provides SPF50+ broad spectrum of UVA/UVB protection.  It is made with 25% fewer ingredients making the phrase “Less is More“ literally appropriate for the product.  It is very light on the skin because it is formulated with no additional fragrances and oils and stays on skin in 7 conditions – sun, heat, wind, pool water, ocean water, sweat and sand.

Banana Boat Simply Protect also replaced Oxybenzone and Parabens – ingredients that are said to create cellular damage in coral reefs with natural ingredients that are safe and effective in filtering out the sun’s harmful rays but are environmental friendly.

“ Banana Boat Simply Protect is a product that gives maximum sun screen protection with very minimal ingredients, making it safe for everyone in the family. It is also  micro-plastic free and does not contain Oxybenzone and Parabens making it safe for the environment as well “ said Maricel Quevedo, Banana Boat Brand Manager.

In the Philippines, Banana Boat Simply Protect comes in three (3) variants - the Simply Protect Sports, designed for those who enjoy active outdoor lifestyle. Simply Protect Kids for kids 4 years old and above, Simply Protect Baby for babies 6 months to 3 years old.  Both variants are sting-free and tear-free product made mild and gentle enough even for the most delicate and sensitive skin.

Simply Protect Sports and Simply Protect Kids are available in both Aerosol Spray and Lotion forms while Simply Protect Baby is available in the same lightweight lotion form.

Banana Boat Simply Protect is a product that it is highly recommended by The Skin Cancer Foundation when it comes to protection against harmful rays of the sun.

Banana Boat Simply Protect is a global brand manufactured by Edgewell Personal Care and being imported, marketed and distributed in the Philippines by Getz Healthcare.

THAILAND


THAILAND


Hear Nothing See Nothing Say Nothing 

That is what these monkey statues in Thailand represents. 

I would never forget that feeling. Because up until now, that is what most Filipinos are doing. We pretend that we hear nothing, see nothing and we end up not saying anything at all.

Why You Need a Clover POS System in Your Restaurant


Why You Need a Clover POS System in Your Restaurant



As a restaurateur, your focus is on serving fantastic food and beverages while providing great service to your customers. It is also important to focus on the Point of Sale (POS) system for your restaurant, the nerve center of your business that keeps everything running smoothly. If you haven’t switched to this important technology that will keep your business afloat and profitable, here are five reasons why you should invest on a restaurant POS like the Booker Clover to help your eatery stand out from the crowd and operate more efficiently.

Sales

A POS system tracks sales. The waiting staff enters the ordered items into the computer or by touching the screen. The computer calculates the bill including taxes. When the customer pays, the waiting staff enters the receipt number and the amount paid. The POS charges the credit card, debit card or -- in the case of cash -- enters the cash amount and calculates the change.

Food Preparation


In a completely automated system like the Clover Station 2018, the order appears on the computer screen at the food preparation area or kitchen. The chef prepares the dish and enters that it is ready to be served into the computer. The waiting staff sees on the screen that the dish is ready. In less sophisticated systems, the POS system generates a ticket which is physically given to the food prep personnel.

Theft Prevention

A fully integrated POS system cuts down on employee theft. An item won't be prepared unless it's in the order entry system which generates the customer's bill.

Reports

Not only does the POS system have the ability to track sales, cash and inventory, it also can track employee productivity, average sales per employee, what menu items are the most popular and how quickly orders are served from time of input. Other reports with useful nugget of information can also be generated.

Serve Your Customers With Ease

Processing customer payments can be done in a snap with a Clover Flex POS module that is functional and intuitive. Included features such as general ledger, purchase orders and payroll accounting give you everything you need to quickly resolve financial problems and keep your guests coming back for more. Advanced security protects your business from hackers and viruses.

SHEPHERD'S GALLERY


SHEPHERD'S GALLERY



The heat is unbearable nowadays.  Our electric fans at home is always on because of the heat of summer.  

Solution? Go visit Baguio City where the weather is much cooler.

No wonder, people from Baguio is more kind.  Oh, this is my own observation so don't feel offended. Maybe, because they're more tolerant because of the weather condition there, 

One place we've visited the last time we were in Baguio is the Shepherd's Gallery inside the Good Shepherd compound. In the picture, I was standing at the viewing deck, where the view is breathtaking.  The view there made me appreciate God's beautiful creation. It is nature at its finest.

You could also see different work of arts at Shepherds Gallery. 

Admission is FREE.

ASIN, BENGUET: Bencab Museum


ASIN, BENGUET: Bencab Museum


One of the reasons why I love to travel is the art and culture of the places I visit.  I am a frustrated artist. I love to draw people and things when I was a small child. But my parents told me not to pursue my love for drawing because artists are generally poor. 

Sigh, to date, I am still poor and I am not even an artist. I should have followed my heart's desire and hone my drawing skills. Because if  am an artist and poor at least I got to do what I wanted to do in life.

Nowadays, Vloggers or video bloggers are the in thing to do. I still couldn't imagine myself talking to my camera every time I travel. Thus, the pose. What if I try to be a vlogger? Would you watch my youtube channel?

DO-IT-YOURSELF BORACAY


DO-IT-YOURSELF BORACAY


Yes, dear! It is doable. No need for you to pay more when you go on a trip to Boracay. This is what we always do whenever we visit the paradise island of Boracay.

Aircon Room accommodation for 3 days and 2 nights is only around Php800 per night per room located in Station 1. This very safe and clean inn is stone's throw away from Willy's Rock and just across Holy Rosary Church.

Two persons in one room 800 divided by two = Php 400 per night x 2 nights (3 days and 2 nights) Php 800.00

Andoks, Mang Inasal, etc., offer meals between 45 pesos to 102 per person. That means you can save a lot if you bring or cook your own food.

It is doable. Travel agencies always assure you that you got the best deals but the truth is, they got a lot of profit from your travel money/ fund. :-)

Airfare: Seat sale- Php 2,171.84 divided by 2= Php1,085.92 + 800= Php1,885.92 per person. (Fare is based on a mock booking for this year 2013 with no check in bags.)

NOTE: I am not connected with any hotel or sponsor.  This is based on my personal experience. This is the way you do it to save money.

Men's And Women's Bicycles: What's The Difference


Men's And Women's Bicycles: What's The Difference


The main difference between women’s and men’s bikes is the fit!


Men and women’s physiques are built differently, so their bikes need to be built to accommodate those differences. The differences are found mostly in the geometry of the frame and the contact points on the bikes. At a glance, the differences may not be obvious to the naked eye for most of us. Women’s bikes are not always pink or in shades of pastel colors with a cute basket, and men’s bikes are not always stark and manly. However, upon closer inspection, you can see the minor differences that make them perfectly suited for their designated gender and physique.

The Seats
There are different seats for men and woman. Men and women have different hips. So, if you’re using a bike for a long period it is advisable to choose a saddle that fits your body comfortably. Women saddles are wider and shorter, while men’s saddles are longer and narrow.

Frame Structure and Length
Considering men are usually bigger than women, have longer arms and longer legs, it’s only natural for the distance between the saddle and the handlebar on a men’s bike to be longer. Women, on the other hand, need a bike with a shorter top tube, with less distance between the seat and handlebars. This will help female riders to cycle comfortably.
In order to know if the bike you choose is the perfect one for your physique, just make sure that you are able to comfortably grab the handlebars, while your back is nearly flat and you don’t have to bend or scrunch up in any way.
Additionally, most men’s bikes have a horizontal bar in the frame, while women’s bicycles are built with the mid tub in diagonal position so that they can ride even if they are wearing skirts or dresses.

Whether you are looking for the best bicycles for men or the best bicycles for women, shop stress-free at SixThreeZero.com. No other bike shops go the extra mile to let you try their bikes for a full 365 days to see how comfortable their bikes are than at SixThreeZero.com. And if you don’t like the bike, simply return it to them within the return period with free shipping!


EBIKE: Budget Travel For Only Php10



Tricycles used to be the poor man's preferred mode of transportation.

Here comes ebikes or electric bicycle. The revolutionary bicycle change the now expensive trike fares in the country today.  

My fearless forecast : Soon, every Juan and Maria in the country would own one.

Not only because it doesn't need maintenance nor lubricants nor any expensive gasoline it cost only Php10 to charge it to its full capacity of around 80 kilometers. That is to and from Manila to somewhere in Cavite. Just imagine the savings you'll have. Recently, the different manufacturers were outsmarting one another by coming out with more features such as silent and hassle free features coupled with speed.as fast as 100 km/hr.  These recent models easily sits well in the different market across Europe. I hope they'll offer it here locally. I couldn't wait to try 'em all.
