It was a fun filled event! Because the Green is in! Ms. Dina invited the Greenman to hold a talk especially for us bloggers.  Yes, dear it is now the time for a green evolution to help rehabilitate Mother Earth.

Diana Stalder pampers like no other. Its product line continuously evolved through the years that I was not surprised anymore when they got the Green Man's services to teach its staff ways to save money on its day to day operation and to upcycle, yes, not just recycle. Many materials that we often discard and dispose of can be upcycle or recycle. Find ways to add value and use for the available material on hand. GreenMan showed us a pencil case made from a milk carton. He just sew on a zipper and voila, a pencil case is now available for your disposal!

The Green Man, Mr. Matthias Gelber is a German national who migrated to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia to do his passion in life! That is to educate people about climate change and made as many people as possible to realize that we all need to do something in order to save mother earth. He encourages everyone to upcycle not only recycle.

Little as it may seem, all of these little contribution are little steps that will have an impact in the long run. 

Just look at this MK ( opps not Michael Korrs but Made of Keyboard bag that DS staff made for her! It is beautiful!

We should be aware that each one of us are contributor to this so called climate change. The heat temperature nowadays is much stronger now with global warming slowly cooking us alive. 

#ClimateChange #Travelonshoestring #Green #GreenEarth

It is sad to note that there are many cases of heat stroke nowadays that sometimes resulted to death. If you love your children and your children's children, please pave the way to a better earth by doing your share.

#ClimateChange #GreenMan #BeAHealer, #DianaStalder, #DSCafe, #ecofriendly, #hashtagsronnie, #lotion, #matthiasgelber, #OrganicLotion, #ronniealonte, #StarMagic, #summer, #sunscreen, #thegreenman, #Pomegranate

TheGreenMan's message is clear. We, earthlings must learn to love our planet as much as we love our family because we only have one planet to live in. There is no planet B So we need to start now, right here, right now to save our planet. ( Unless, you have an Extra Terrestrial (ET) friend who would adopt you to his planet, ha ha ha!) 

#ClimateChange #GreenMan #BeAHealer, #DianaStalder, #DSCafe, #ecofriendly, #hashtagsronnie, #lotion, #matthiasgelber, #OrganicLotion, #ronniealonte, #StarMagic, #summer, #sunscreen, #thegreenman, #Pomegranate

I was the first recipient of the GreenMan's book (made from 100% recycled paper and vegetable ink ) during the activity when I answered 1000 watts as the equivalent consumption of 1 hp in wattage. Thank you Greenman and Ms. Dina for this book!

We also met the newest brand ambassadors of Diana Stalder (DS) - Hashtags Ronnie Alonte and StarMagics's PBB Teen Housemate Ylona Garcia ( not in picture because I was busy eating when she arrived. Lol! )

#ClimateChange #GreenMan #BeAHealer, #DianaStalder, #DSCafe, #ecofriendly, #hashtagsronnie, #lotion, #matthiasgelber, #OrganicLotion, #ronniealonte, #StarMagic, #summer, #sunscreen, #thegreenman, #Pomegranate, #ResponsibleConsumption

All in all,  everyone enjoyed the organic food and drinks they served at D.S.Cafe plus the wonderful knowledge about upcycling and mother Earth that the GreenMan has shared with us.

The GreenMan urges everyone to consider organic products and upcycling to help ease the problem of mother nature. Just like my ate Dindin, the GreenMan also hope that the Philippines will eventually have more concrete laws on going green and organic to help the small time farmers and SME's in the Philippines. 

#ClimateChange #GreenMan #BeAHealer, #DianaStalder, #DSCafe, #ecofriendly, #hashtagsronnie, #lotion, #matthiasgelber, #OrganicLotion, #ronniealonte, #StarMagic, #summer, #sunscreen, #thegreenman, #Pomegranate, #ResponsibleConsumption

The GreenMan said that every second that we waste electricity like leaving the lights on when nobody is using it, leaving our cellphone batteries that they overcharge, by not unplugging electrical appliances like television, laptops, refrigerators, air-con, etc. Please be aware that we do not just make our bills soar to its limit but we consume more energy that the climate in this world suffers. #ResponsibleConsumption

#ClimateChange #GreenMan #BeAHealer, #DianaStalder, #DSCafe, #ecofriendly, #hashtagsronnie, #lotion, #matthiasgelber, #OrganicLotion, #ronniealonte, #StarMagic, #summer, #sunscreen, #thegreenman, #Pomegranate #Timer

You could help by simply using timers, using appliances with inverter technology, using organic garments, upcycling your used tarpaulin and keyboard into bags and the like.

The small efforts to reuse and recycle will eventually stop the production of more non-biodegradable materials which destroys mother nature. 

One classic example is the story that the GreenMan shared that because of the high demand from groups that promotes green living, the cost of organic clothing had gone down in Malaysia. And he is positive that is possible also here in our country.

There is a big difference in the summer temperature we had growing up from the summer heat we are experiencing now. The change in our weather temperature, stronger typhoons, drought, the hole in our ozone layer that keeps on getting bigger, all of these are the end result of each one of us throwing trash from baby diapers, sanitary napkins, candy wrappers, plastics, trees are being cut down everyday to provide us with pencils & papers, destroying limestone to provide us with cement, mining all earth treasures, exhausting mother earth. All in the name of industrialization. Please remember this is the only planet we have, there is no planet B. Let yourself be the biggest change! Be a healer.

I am not perfect but I can try. How about you? Are you up to the challenge? Please share the valuable lessons that the greenman shared with us so we can help save the only planet that we have. Not only for out children but also for our children's children.

CLIMATE CHANGE ALERT


CLIMATE CHANGE ALERT



"Kagaya mo, balewala din sa akin yan sinasabi nilang climate change", ani Linda. Ano naman ang importance ng climate change na pinagsasabi nila sa akin?

Thousands, if not millions or even billions of people in this planet is unfortunately not aware of the problems that these climate change could bring us.

The past few years, we've been experiencing nasty weather events due primarily to the carbon footprints and various emissions and pollutants! We could not deny the fact that the increased in our temperatures is due to global warming!

While we'd like to think of climate change as a long-term global risk we can emotionally detach from, one should know of the general effects of the climate change in our one and only planet. 


CUBAO'S KIA THEATER


CUBAO'S KIA THEATER

The newly renovated Kia Theatre was formerly known as the New Frontier Theater. It is a multi-purpose events hall located at Araneta Center in Cubao, Quezon City, Metro Manila, the Philippines. It is just a few steps from Isetann Cubao.

I first heard about Kia Theater when I was invited for the Myx Awards night and then the second time was when we had a blogcon with Kim Chiu.

KIA Theater has around 3,500 seating capacity! Whew! It makes me wonder how can Kim Chiu will manage to jam-packed  the said venue for her concert entitled "Chinita Princess The FUNtasy Concert" on April 9, 2016. 


Yes! Friends to mark her 10th year in the showbiz industry Kim Chiu would be having a concert! “I may not be the best singer, I may not be the best dancer, but I promise to be the best that I can be. Sana po samahan niyo ako sa isang espesyal na gabi ng buhay ko as I celebrate my 10 years in the industry. Isang gabing puno ng SAYA at PASASALAMAT.”

I wish you the best Kim! You're a good soul that's why your fans loves you!

Crizal Eyezen: Keeping your eyes protected while you remain connected to the Universe


Crizal Eyezen: Keeping your eyes protected while you remain connected to the Universe

It is a fact that in this day and age of internet, it’s a must for people to keep their eyes glued to the world using their digital devices — be it a smartphone, gadget or tablet.  Being digitally connected has become a lifestyle. However, being online 24/7 can strain and, even, damage your eyes. With the constant exposure to blue light emitted from digital devices, your eyes need protection.

Multi-screening

With the abundance of digital devices, people are now engaging in a digital behavior called “multi-screening”. It is a behavior where an individual uses multiple digital screens simultaneously, on average four (4) different devices are used—either for work, education, socializing or leisure.

A typical multi-screen user spends 7 hours and 24 minutes of screen media per day. Of that time, 34% is spent on smartphones; 33% on TV; 23% on laptops; and 10% on tablets. This longer time in front of bright digital screens and versatility between devices are challenges for the human eye, and many people are describing specific symptoms linked to their new behavior.

With this in mind, Essilor, the global leader in ophthalmic lenses, introduces Crizal Eyezen, a new range of lenses designed to keep your eyes protected while staying connected to the digital world.

Crizal Eyezen™ lenses are designed to replace ordinary prescription lenses or to assist occasionally the ones who usually do not need glasses, when viewing their digital devices. They exist in three (3) different optimizations according to the type of screen most used and the age of the patient. It features three revolutionary technologies—Eyezen Focus, Light Scan™ and W.A.V.E Technology that work in sync to relax the eyes from all digital stress and protect against harmful blue light.

Eyezen Focus Technology helps relieve the eye’s focus when using digital devices and reduces eye strain in ultra-near distances or for reading small characters by giving an extra power in the lower portion of the ophthalmic lens.

Light Scan™ Technology is a unique light filtering technology which protects eyes from the harmful blue-violet light emitted by digital screens. W.A.V.E Technology, on the other hand, eliminates lens distortion for sharper, clearer vision at every distance and better vision even in low light.

“Crizal Eyezen enhances the digitally connected lifestyle of the millennial generation” says Essilor Philippines general manager Dr. Emelita Roleda. “While ordinary glasses help you see the world, Eyezen enhance the way you live in it. With clearer, sharper vision, you can connect to the digital world better, while getting protection for your eyes at the same time.”

Crizal Eyezen is just one of the many technological innovations of Essilor.  As technology continues to advance, people’s visual needs will change at the same time. Essilor makes sure that people’s visual needs are always complemented through its constant technological innovations, innovations that aim for people to see the world better.

Crizal Eyezen lenses are available in clear and Crizal Transitions at leading optical shops nationwide. For more information, visit the Crizal Eyezen Facebook page, www.facebook.com/crizaleyezenph.



About Essilor
The world’s leading ophthalmic optics company, Essilor designs, manufactures and markets a wide range of lenses to improve and protect eyesight. Its corporate mission is to enable everyone around the world to access lenses that meet his or her unique visual requirements. To support this vision, the Company allocates over €160 million to research and development every year, in a commitment to continuously bring new, more effective products to market.

LONDON: Collegiate Church of St Peter at Westminster


LONDON: Collegiate Church of St Peter at Westminster


"Ohhh, what a beauty!", was the exact words I utter when I saw this photo of the Westminster Abbey illuminated by lights when it was uploaded by manay Rosey yesterday.

I've always been fascinated with different architectural wonders of the world, the universe rather. ( O ha, gaya gaya ako kay Miss Universe Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach para in, ha ha ha! ) That is why I am so fond of traveling. My brother keeps on complaining that I couldn't keep up with his pace. Well, ladies and gentlemen that is because I always try to take photos of ingenious and intricate details of the place we are visiting. I am so engrossed trying to capture everything with my camera that I always lost track of time.

Have you ever dream of hearing mass inside a Roman Catholic church in London? It is my childhood dream to be able to visit different places like Paris, Germany and United Kingdom.

For common folks like you and me it is almost next to impossible to visit England, much more to hear mass at the Collegiate Church of St Peter at Westminster located at #20 Dean's Yard in Westminster London.

Unlike you and me, my kababayan manay Rosey Bermal had been working in a London hospital for many years now. She's so lucky! She had been living in London and had visited various places in Europe. 

The Collegiate Church of St Peter at Westminster, London is an architectural masterpiece of the 13th to 16th centuries.

Westminster Abbey also presents a unique pageant of British history such as the following:
  • the shrine of St Edward the Confessor
  • the tombs of kings and queens
  • and countless memorials to the famous and the great.
  • It has been the setting for every Coronation since 1066 
  • and for numerous other royal occasions, including sixteen royal weddings. 
Today, Westminster Abbey is still a church dedicated to regular worship and to the celebration of great events in the life of the nation. Neither a cathedral nor a parish church, Westminster Abbey (or the Collegiate Church of St Peter, Westminster to give it its correct title) is a "Royal Peculiar" under the jurisdiction of a Dean and Chapter, subject only to the Sovereign and not to any archbishop or bishop

Did you know that this gothic style church is said to be in existence since 960 AD? But it was rebuilt during the 10th century and became the burial site of and were rebuilt in 1517 while its two (2) towers were done during the 18th century? Its floor area is 32,000 feet. Its width is 85 feet. Each of the two (2) towers has a height of 225 feet. And it has 10 bells.

Ciao! Smile Always!
