MAYON VOLCANO: ALL-TERRAIN VEHICLE (ATV) RIDE


MAYON VOLCANO: ALL-TERRAIN VEHICLE (ATV) RIDE

What better way is there to capture your memories of the beautiful perfect cone of Mayon Volcano than to have your pictures taken with the majestic Mayon as the backdrop.

Better still, you can explore the scenic places at the foot of Mount Mayon aboard the All-Terrain Vehicles (ATVs) that are available for rent from different ATV operators at Barangay Pawa in Legazpi City or at Cagsawa Ruins at Barangay Busay in Daraga, Albay.

Oh, these bunch of young at heart must be having the time of their lives while cruising through rough terrains on board the ATVs at the foot of Mount Mayon. You could almost feel their adrenaline rush as they skillfully maneuver the ATVs through narrow streams along the ATV trail.   

For you to have a clearer picture of the various ATV trails available, you can take a look at the map below. 
NOTE: We are not in any way connected with the ATV Operators
On the map, you'll see the starting point of the ATV trails in Barangay Pawa, Legazpi City. 

Here is how to go to Barangay Pawa:

You can take a tricycle or cab or jeepney. 

If you ride the Legazpi-Daraga jeepney, take Loop 1 or Loop 2 jeepney route, get off at Sagrada Familia Chapel at Barangay Bogtong and walk along the street leading to Barangay Pawa.

The other starting point of the ATV trails is in Cagsawa Ruins site at Barangay Busay in Daraga, Albay where you can hit two birds with one stone by visiting the Cagsawa Ruins and taking the ATV ride through various trails at the foot of Mayon Volcano.

PARTIALLY DISABLED PERSON: Reintegration to Society


PARTIALLY DISABLED PERSON: Reintegration to Society

A pleasant day to you! Rejoice you and your family is in perfect health. Not everyone is as lucky as you are.

I wonder if there is a program under Pnoy's administration for partially disabled person's reintegration to society?

Not a lot of people could feel and understand partially disabled person's desire to once again feel how it is to be a productive member of the society.

Evil hearted people abound making it hard(er) to be a member of the group once again. That's why most of the partially disabled person hope and pray for a more forgiving and understanding heart of every member of the society. 

Maybe you could not help them with their medical expenses nor pay for their expensive maintenance medicines and check up. 

That means that the least that you could do is to be gentle with them. Don't rub it off to their faces that they are limited in their ways. Be kind. Do not be cold hearted. Try to be on their shoes. Would you be as strong? These people had been through a lot so please don't add up to their pain. If it is still difficult for you to understand them, just let go. Go on with your life, don't make any foolish acts against them. After all. they're still human. And as human being you ought to act as one.

Giordano Philippines invites everyone to join World Without Strangers campaign


MANILA, MAY 26, 2014 – A world without strangers is an ideal world where people are not divided by race, class, religion or culture. It is a world where everyone welcomes each other as if they are friends or family. This is what Giordano Philippines stands for, and it longs to do so by developing apparel for everyone regardless of ethnicity, nationality or culture.
In celebration of its 25th anniversary in the country, Giordano Philippines invites everyone to join them in this quest for a World Without Strangers (WWS), beginning with the WWS photo booth which will run in selected malls all over the country from May 16 to June 1, 2014.

Catch the WWS photo booth at Trinoma (May 23), SM Megamall (May 24), Alabang Town Center (May 25), Ayala Cebu (May 30) and SM Davao (June 1). The first leg of the campaign took place at the SM Mall of Asia (May 16), Glorietta (May 17) and SM Pampanga (May 18).

The photo booth will be situated in the mall for a whole day. Those who want to participate in the campaign need to sign a form, giving their consent for Giordano Philippines to use to use their photos on social media and other Giordano marketing collaterals. And participants will get to bring home their own copy of the photo. 
“The Giordano brand and apparel have always appealed to anyone – from those who shop in Dubai’s glitzy malls to the laidback college kids in Sydney, Australia. Our timeless style and quality materials bring together people of different cultures and backgrounds,” said Beatrice Lim, Giordano Philippines’ VP for Marketing.

“Here in the Philippines people still come from different divides, and through this campaign we hope to break that. We want to show everyone that we can live in a world without strangers,” she said.

Parokya ni Edgar's front man Chito Miranda won a lot of netizen's heart when he proposed to his long time girlfriend Neri Naig at a private resort.

The 38-year-old musician had the proposal documented and posted the video on his YouTube account late Wednesday.

Miranda and Naig became controversial last year after sex videos of them surfaced online. During a press conference last year, Chito told members of the media of his plans to marry Neri Naig.


"Ako ever since planado ko na 'yon talaga," Miranda said. "Siyempre when you are in a relationship, you always want to think na this would be it. So yeah, there's a plan.

EASTER IDEAS: Villa del Conte Ovicinis for Easter


EASTER IDEAS: Villa del Conte Ovicinis for Easter

Wondering what  Easter treats you could give your kiddos on Easter Sunday?  

For many, Easter is equated with fertility symbols such as the Easter rabbit and Easter eggs.

Rather than going for an Easter egg, (which they could accidentally drop or hit their teeth or head with) you could try Ovicini for a change. It's a decadent dark chocolate coated with pastel-colored candy and filled with delicious hazelnut cream from the premium Italian artisanal chocolates of the idyllic rural town of Villa del Conte in Padova (Padua), Italy.    

A delightful Easter treat for the kids and the kids-at-heart, Villa del Conte Ovicinis come in a limited edition 100g Easter Bunny Pouch and is priced at P380. 

Visit Villa del Conte at Greenbelt 5, Shangri-La Mall, Resorts World, Alabang Town Center and Robinson’s Magnolia, or call 893-2575 or 621-6101 for special orders.

Health benefits abound if you get good, healthy sleep


Health benefits abound if you get good, healthy sleep

Can't sleep well at night? Are you an insomniac? Ever wondered how to get the best sleep you can ever have? To know more about it, you may probably have to go to a sleep conference or any fora and shell out money to get much-needed information.

Luckily, Uratex, the Philippines’ largest manufacturer of commercial and automotive polyurethane foam and mattress products, knows how valuable information is when it comes to knowing how to get healthful sleep and reap its benefits—and they’ll even bring the information directly to the people.


Just recently, Uratex kicked-off its “Mobile Sleep Solutions” at the Quezon Memorial Circle in Quezon City that aims to educate Filipinos in Metro Manila and nearby provinces on how to get the best of sleep health.

On board a customized, air-conditioned van transformed to mimic a cozy bedroom environment, guests learned from Uratex sleep experts the 10 commandments of sleep hygiene for adults, the benefits of good sleep and the many exciting Uratex products that best suit the needs of customers when it comes to their sleeping needs. Inside the van guests also got to sample the cozy and comfortable feel of the Uratex Airlite Mattress that offers superior sleep benefits.

Incidentally, the launch of the Uratex Sleep Solutions Caravan coincided with the celebration of World Sleep Day, which aims to promote sleep health worldwide. The commemoration of this significant event also explains why the Philippine Society of Sleep Medicine, a group that promotes the importance of sleep health and an affiliate of the Philippine Medical Association, conducted a mini conference, which Uratex also supported as part of its better sleep advocacy.

It was a really informative day for many guests and onlookers who trooped to the “Mobile Sleep Solutions Van.” They all marveled at the unique vehicle that was adorned with balloons and made alive by the presence of 15 friendly personnel from Uratex, led by Consumer Marketing Manager Marvey Alcantara.

“Our guests were so happy about this mobile sleep solutions van. We got many inquiries from people who asked us on the good sleeping habits and the different Uratex products which, according to them, they only see in stores and malls. Now the products are here and they can try these items. They are very interested about the foam, mattress, fold-a-mattress, pillows, portable mats, and our new product line,” Alcantara said.

Inside, guests also joined the on-going #CelebrateSleepWithUratex photo contest where they can win wonderful prizes. They only needed to visit the “Mobile Sleep Solutions” with a maximum of five people and take photos on the Uratex Airlite Mattress. Participants should then post their picture on Facebook and tag all their friends included in the photo with the hashtag #CelebrateSleepWithUratex, and put the link of the photo in Facebook to win via rafflecopter.

Adjacent also to the Mobile Sleep Solutions van is a game booth where guests were invited to participate in exciting games and entertainment. Lucky guests truly enjoyed the fun and went home smiling while toting several great prizes from Uratex.

The Uratex “Mobile Sleep Solutions” is just the start of many wonderful days for some 3,000 people who dropped by the promo vehicle. For the next three months, the “Mobile Sleep Solutions” will motor to different places in the metropolis. Afterwards, it will head to the provinces, particularly in Laguna, Batangas, Pampanga, Bulacan, among others.

BELL'S PALSY: Up Close and Personal


BELL'S PALSY: Up Close and Personal
God wanted me to appreciate my ability to smile so he gave me Bell's palsy. At first, I asked God, why me? Then I came to realize that God wanted me to know that with my second life and second chance I should be smiling more. After all, it is free.

I am a ruptured brain aneurysm survivor. My neurosurgeon coiled and put a stent on my brain to stop the internal bleeding. After the operation, my doctors told me that I will never be 100% again. That statement made me sad.

I was bedridden for four grueling months. That means bed bath and my assistant fed me with tasteless food, fruits and vegetables. Those people who had seen me going to the mall in a wheelchair were so amazed with my health's developments.

I had my first bath inside our comfort room after four months. That is the most refreshing bath I ever had. Money could not buy the happiness I felt that day.

After that, I re-learned how to sit down, stand up, walk and eat on my own. My balance was shaky at first. My physical therapist patiently taught me how to regain my balance again. I thought, I was well again but then I had Bell's palsy.

What is Bell's palsy?

According to Mayo Clinic, Bell's palsy causes sudden weakness in your facial muscles. This makes half of your face appear to droop. Your smile is one-sided, and your eye on that side resists closing.

Bell's palsy, also known as facial palsy, can occur at any age. The exact cause is unknown, but it's believed to be the result of swelling and inflammation of the nerve that controls the muscles on one side of your face. It may be a reaction that occurs after a viral infection.


While stroke or transient ischemic attack (TIA) can cause facial paralysis usually in one side of the face, there is no connection between stroke or TIA and Bell's palsy. However, one must see a doctor immediately in order to rule out a more serious condition like stroke or TIA or brain tumor.

For most people, Bell's palsy is temporary. Symptoms usually start to improve within a few weeks, with complete recovery in about six months. A small number of people continue to have some Bell's palsy symptoms for life. Rarely, Bell's palsy can recur.


By the way, Bell's palsy got its name after the Scottish surgeon Charles Bell who first described it in 1829 in his presentation before the Royal Society of London.


Famous people who had Bell's Palsy:
  • Bernadette Sembrano, Filipino newscaster, host of the medical program Salamat Dok! and anchor of TV Patrol Weekend.
  • Katie Holmes
  • Pierce Brosnan
  • Sylvester Stallone
  • George Clooney
God works in mysterious ways. Two weeks after rigid physical therapy and rehabilitation I had my smile back. God is great and God is good all the time.

27 34,000.00 - 34,999.99  34,000.00   425.00        425.00        850.00
28 35,000.00 - up                35,000.00   437.50       437.50        875.00

So if, for example, your salary is P15,000 per month, check the appropriate “Salary Bracket” (Row 8 ) and look for the corresponding Employee and Employer Share. Every month, your payroll statement should show that a total of P187.50 has been deducted from your salary as your PhilHealth contribution.

Your employer adds the other half, P175.00, and a total of P350.00 should be remitted to Philhealth on your behalf every month.

NAIA 3: Overnight Parking Rate


NAIA 3: Overnight Parking Rate

My brother and I were so surprised that the rate for overnight parking at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport 3 ballooned to Php300 per night from the usual Php50 that we used to pay whenever we left our car there.

According to the sign board, the new rate was imposed effective December 2013. I guess that is still a small price to pay than losing your car.  I hope that with the price increase comes tighter security. After all, you and I could not buy peace of mind.

Happy Summer everyone!

What Network is the Unknown Number that's calling you?


What Network is the Unknown Number that's calling you?
Have you ever experienced receiving a call from an unknown number?  You keep getting missed calls from unknown numbers and you wonder if you'll reply or not?

Do you wonder as to whose network that unknown number belongs too? As you all know, most of the promos of the networks cover only calls between the same network.  Just like me, I bet, you don't want to be charged with inter-network charges as much as possible.

SOLAIRE RESORT: 1 Million Fans In 1 Year


SOLAIRE RESORT: 1 Million Fans In 1 Year

Isn't it amazing? For such short period of time Solaire Resort accumulated more than 1 million Fans on Facebook. A very good way to celebrate its first year anniversary in the Philippines.



I first heard about Solaire Resort and Casino when it opened its door in the Philippines last March 2013. My brother and I actually had circled the vicinity but we did not park our car because we still have to go somewhere else.  So it is only on December 2013 that we finally were able to visit. We did not stay long though because I am allergic to cigarrette smoke. 

I was really amazed at how tall the imported Christmas tree from Canada that Solaire placed on its lobby to the delight of everyone. I really hope that we can go back there and dine in one of the restaurants or maybe stay in one of its rooms or watch one of its events.

A one night stay in this world-class hotel to relax and get de-stressed would be nice. Solaire currently has special room rates as it celebrates its first year anniversary. To check them out, please click HERE.
Solaire is the first integrated resort to embrace Social Media with its own in-house digital marketing team since the property opened in March 2013 and has indicated its strength within a year. Social Media is an essential part of its continuing efforts to innovate and provide impressive and exceptional entertainment to all its clientele. Growing engagement with fans of Solaire has contributed significantly to the business success. Social Media platforms will enhance the marketing plans of Solaire and allows it to interact and update regular patrons on all events, activities, shows and promotions.

We are glad to be able to connect with our guests through Social Media,” says Jasper Evangelista, Vice President Brand Marketing, Solaire Resort and Casino.

Solaire’s Facebook page has inter-active postings daily on the gaming and resort promotions, events, raffle and other activities. Solaire has a strong social media presence in the Philippines and a rising presence in Asia.
