Bavaria is now in the Philippines!

Hi everyone!
It's been a while since my last update, it's because of my crappy internet connection here in our home, anyway, enough of my rant, I'm soo back and what I've got for you today are some details about a Beer that was launched recently here in the Philippines.

Here are the deets about Bavaria.


Bavaria has been brewing its own taste of beer for over 300 years. That makes it 7
generations of perfecting quality beer brewed by using the finest mineral water from their
own spring. Bavaria is focused on following its family traditions of brewing high quality
beers for the present and future generations to come. It prides in brewing its finest pilsner
since 1719 and introducing the first truly alcohol-free beer in 1978. With a deep and rich
history, the company wants to share their precious creations to the world.



Here in the Philippines, Bavaria Premium was introduced as their flagship product
from the Bavaria product line-up. It is a classic pilsner perfect for the classic Filipino. A
perfect night cap after a long day. It has a profile of a premium and clear lager where you
will experience the taste of a real beer: premium malts, hops, and the freshest spring water
from Holland. Refreshing and light, this beer will make you feel like you’re bathing in the
fresh water springs of Bavaria. Bavaria Premium is coming your way and is now available
in 7-11 outlets near you.

Other Bavaria products coming your way are the 8.6 and Bavaria 0.0% Malt Drink.
8.6 which has an alcohol content of 8.6% (Thus the name) is a strong and edgy blonde ale
that will make you feel a special buzz from a special brew. For those who are looking for a
more wholesome night, they will be launching the first ever Bavaria 0.0% Malt Drink (i'm reaaly excited for this one!) that
comes in 3 flavors: Original, Peach, and Pomegranate. An alcohol-free alternative great for
any party.
Each of these variants has its own Bavarian twist, so watch out for these and
experience Bavaria soon in establishments near you! Be Bold, Be Bavaria.

For more updates, you can visit and like them on Facebook: BavariaPH or use the tag #BeBavaria


And that's it for now ;)

'till next time!

#MerrySMChristmas2015 Kick off at SM City Taytay

Hey guys!

Last november 6, SM City Taytay marked the beginning of the Christmas season with their Snow White Themed Event tittled, A Royal Holiday: A celebration full of sparkle and splendor.

The celebration started with an awesome choir, they entertained the crowd with a few Christmas songs.

Because the event is Snow White themed, of course little girls from around the area were invited to join the fun, all of the girls who attended the event wore their best ball gowns and spakling tiaras.

A photo of my fave princess that night, she's such a cutie and her gown is simply stunning!

The event was hosted by the gorgeous Isabel Oli-Pratts.

And of course I won't forget the highlight of that night, the appearance of Snow White's 7 Dwarfs and the lighting of their house which is the main attraction of the Christmas Display in SM City Taytay.

Because the dwarfs are soo cute, I posed with some of em for a photo.. hehe.



The main attraction this season at SM City Taytay.
The home of the Seven Dwarfs.


They concluded the program with a Group Photo Session with Santa Claus.

And that's it for today!

Shift to a more Active Lifestyle with Healthway Medical's S.E.E.D. Program

Hey guys!

Did you know that a person who sit more than 6 hours every day is at risk of acquiring chronic diseases?

Studies have shown that up to 70 percent of people spend their working hours sitting more than six hours per day, unknowingly putting themselves at risk for developing chronic non-communicable diseases such as heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and hypertension.
But lack of physical activity is not only occurring in the working population. According to Dr. Paul Quilino, Medical Affairs manager at Healthway Medical and wellness advocate, healthy sports and recreational activities are becoming less of the norm in our society regardless of gender and age.

It is widely accepted that physical activity plays a critical role in keeping one’s health and wellness in prime condition. In fact, Quilino stressed that an active lifestyle “promotes proper growth and development of the bones and muscles, helps burn stored energy, keeps cardiovascular system in tiptop condition, and helps improve overall physical endurance and agility.”
“This makes the shift to a more active lifestyle all the more important,” Quilino said. “Exercise and physical activity are probably two of the most cost-effective and significant factors that one can engage in, to help lessen the risk of developing chronic diseases. With this, Filipinos, regardless of their age, should keep a close watch on their sleep, diet, and exercise to meet in order to stay healthy.”
To ensure that Filipinos achieve the most desirable lifestyle, Healthway Medical—the most trusted and preferred mall-based clinics in the Philippines—promotes its Sleep, Eat Right, Exercise, and De-stress (S.E.E.D.) program to underpin the importance of an active and preventive healthcare especially to the working group.
According to Carmie de Leon, vice president for sales and marketing of Healthway Medical, exercise is always lauded as an effective tool in preventing all kinds of diseases. However, being active is not the sole factor that plays part in curbing a sedentary lifestyle.
De Leon said, “People who work eight hours or more daily have the responsibility take care of themselves in any way possible. Just like Dr. Quilino noted, taking the initiative to walk at least 20 minutes a couple of times within the week may help your body adapt to different physical activities. Eventually, you can slowly progress to brisk walking, then jogging, then running in greater lengths and frequency.”

When Filipinos adopt this routine, they may challenge themselves to add distance or intensify the workout until they finally get rid of such sedentary lifestyles, Quilino added.
Aside from moving a step closer to health and wellness, he said “the main goal in any ideal diet is to maximize intake of essential nutrients which are often found in fruits, vegetables and whole grains, and lessen intake of those which are known to increase our risk for chronic non-communicable disease.”
“Practically, the only way one will be able to follow such recommendations is by adapting and tailor-fitting these in their own socio-cultural preferences, as well as medical and physical needs,” Quilino added.
To further nurture one’s physicality, Quilino highlighted the importance of quality sleep in ensuring work productivity.
“In all ages, sleep induces secretion of certain chemicals in the brain, which in turn signals to the whole body to regenerate. And it’s not just the length of sleep we get butthe quality of sleep as well,” Quilino said.
Quilino added, “Some studies point to the benefits of early sleep (within the first 4 hours of sleep), deep sleep on the 5th to 7th hour and near waking. What we want to point out here is that to function normally awake, we also have to care about the amount and quality of sleep we get.”

Because of today’s generation’s affinity to digital gadgets, Quilino emphasized that these modern-day technologies play a greater role in affecting people in decreasing their time and interest in more physical recreational activities. Digital gadgets effectively decrease physical activity and also play a role in disrupting one’s sleep-awake cycle, reducing sleeping time, hence, a good waChuy to achieve quality sleep is to “keep yourself from using your phone before you sleep.”
“Most mobile games aim to instantly gratify their users, and in effect, feed (and increase) their appetite to even play more,” Quilino said. “The unwanted contrast against playing outdoors becomes more magnified and feeds into the vicious cycle. Light stimulation (not necessarily the radiation) during the sleep phase of our natural sleep-wake cycle signals the brain to stay alert, and therefore, stay awake. With this, Filipinos should opt to minimize their gadget use especially when they’re hitting the bunk.”
De Leon, on the other hand, said that while sleeping, eating right, and exercising are important pillars in achieving wellness not only in terms of mental health but also physical and social well-being, it is also crucial to take a break once in a while to curb work-related stress.
“Work-related stress is the body’s common response when people are confronted with work demands that do not match their knowledge and abilities,” De Leon said. “Since it challenges their ability to cope, 75 percent of adults experience moderate to high levels of stress, which is quite alarming.”
She added, “People who work hard to give their families a more comfortable life also need to have that comfort for themselves. With this, they need to take a break from their daily routines and do something that de-stresses them,” De Leon said.

And that's it for today!

Do It All with Pantene

Hey guys!

More than 2 weeks ago, I received a parcel from BDJ that contains this hair care trio from Pantene, it's in a very cute pouch, here's a pic;

Here's a closer look of the products inside the pouch, from left to right; Pantene Hair Fall Control Shampoo, Pantene Hail Fall Control Conditioner and Pantene 3 Minute Miracle Hair Fall Control Conditioner.
?
I have been using 2 of the products from the kit, the shampoo and the 3 minute miracle conditioner (I really love Pantene's 3 minute miracle conditioner). My current hair style is quite on the high maintenance side, I think it's also because of the length. After two weeks of continuous use, my hair became shinier, and more manageable, I'm not even afraid of the wind anymore! wohoo!, and I have less hair fall!

Here's a photo of me taken 2 weeks after I used the Pantene Do It All kit.


My final thoughts about the Pantene kit; I really loved it! especially the 3 minute miracle conditioner, I will definitely buy bigger bottles when I finish the ones that were sent to me.. (hoarder alert!) hehe.

With Pantene, I can definitely Do It All!

And that's it!

Till next time!
