Sun Life Financial Philippines' Annual SUNPIOLOGY Run is now SUNPIOLOGY DUO!

Hey guys!

Here's some news for all the fitness enthusiasts out there, especially those who are into running and cycling.

The highly-anticipated annual fun run organized by Sun Life Financial Philippines, will soon cater to both running and cycling enthusiasts, as it evolves into a two-fold event dubbed Sunpiology Duo.  

#SunpiologyDUO will come in two parts: Sun Life Cycle PH @BGC and Sun Life Resolution Run.
Sun Life Cycle PH will take place on November 18, 2017 at the Bonifacio Global City in Taguig. Sun Life will be mounting the event in partnership with Sunrise Events, Inc., which is known for its flagship projects that focus on race organization and sports tourism. The contract signing between the two companies was held recently in Shangri-La Mactan in Cebu, with Sun Life CEO and Country Head Riza Mantaring, Sun Life brand ambassador Piolo Pascual, Sunrise Founder Wilfred Uytengsu, and Sunrise General Manager Princess Galura in attendance.
“We recognize cycling’s growing popularity in the Philippines, and this is our share in helping encourage more people to get into the sport,” Sun Life Chief Marketing Officer Mylene Lopa said. “Just as it is in our fun run, Sun Life Cycle PH will cater to different ages and will offer different categories.”

Sun Life Cycle PH will have a total of seven categories: Tricycle Ride (100 meters for 2-3 year olds), Kids’ Ride (500 meters for 4-5 year olds), Family Ride (30 minutes for 6-15 year olds with adult companion), Solo Ride (30 minutes for 6-15 years old), Short Distance Ride (20km for 10 years old and above), and Long Distance Ride (40km for 10 years old and above). A charity category called Bid2Bike lets the fans of Piolo Pascual, Matteo Guidicelli, Inigo Pascual, Gerald Anderson, and other Star Magic celebrities, bid for a chance to bike alongside their idols, an exclusive photo souvenir, and have their jersey signed. For cycling enthusiasts, they can bid to ride with legend Robbie McEwen


Meanwhile, the Sun Life Resolution Run will happen on January 20, 2018. As with the previous years, Sun Life will once again mount the event with Run Rio and will offer 3k, 5k, and 10k categories. It features an obstacle course that illustrates the steps to prevent diabetes, like watching what you eat and why exercise is important. More details will be revealed in the coming months, which includes an expanded payment facility like PayPal and DragonPay.  
Interested to do both Sunpiology Duo events? Sign up for Sun Life CyclePH @BGC and get P100 off Sun Life Resolution Run registration fees. Registration for both races is now open at www.sunpiology.com.
Promoting physical fitness, supporting worthwhile causes
Sunpiology Duo will likewise retain its charitable components, where it will continue to raise funds for the different causes it has been supporting for the past seven years. These include the education of scholars from Hebreo 12:1 Foundation and Star Magic’s chosen charities.
Moreover, Sunpiology Duo will continue to be a star-studded happening, with Star Magic celebrities, as well as ambassadors of Sun Life’s wellness community GoWell, expected to participate.
The Sunpiology list of sponsors are also growing every year, staring with the following partners for Sun Life Cycleph @BGC: F2P, Powerade, Rudy Project, Cignal, Philippine Star, 2Go, Alcopllus, and Garmin.
“With Sunpiology Duo, we can now cater to even more Filipinos who are eager to get a boost in their fitness journey and contribute to worthwhile causes while at it,” Lopa said. “It’s surely going to be an exciting event. We look forward to seeing our Sunpiology regulars, and we’re also eager to welcome those who will be joining us for the first time.”
For updates on Sunpiology Duo, follow @sunlifeph on Facebook, Instragram, and Twitter. Visit www.sunpiology.com for registration details.  

And that's it for today!

Wo-Nut opens 12th store at SM City North Edsa

Hey guys!

Last Saturday, August 26,2017, Wo-Nut opened their 12th store at SM City North Edsa foodcourt. Wo-nut is a unique product concept, and the first of its type here in the country, it's a waffle-donut hybrid, that's why it's called Wonut.

Here's a little history of Wo-nut, according to Sir Resty (President) and Ms.Anj (EVP) of Wo-nut corp, they conceptualized it way back 2014,  but they only started executing the business idea in 2015, now 2 years later they already have 12 existing stores in different key locations around the metro, and their target is to open 16 more before the year ends.

What's special about Wo-nut aside from their unique concept is that all the ingredients that they use are fresh and imported, that's a step up from your basic waffle or donut isn't!? And they don't just offer sweet flavors, they sell some savory wo-nut sandwiches as well.

Here are some pics from the opening of their SM North Edsa foodcourt Store;


Cutie patootie kids cutting the ribbon. :)

Of course a store opening will not be complete without the blessing.

A super fun Wo-nut eating contest for the first few tweens in line.

Look at those excited people waiting for the store to officially open.

They also gave away some free Wo-nuts to a few lucky customers who were at the start of the line.


And last but not the least, a photo of their best seller Wo-nut, Almond White.

And that's it for today!
I hope you guys liked it.

BTW if you want to have your own Wo-nut kiosk, they are looking for potential franchisees and you can have your own for as low as Php188K you can know more by following them on IG:@wonutcorp and fb.com/wonut.corp :)

'till next time!

Hey Sugar Waxing Salon: Now Open in Ayala Harbor Point Subic

Hey guys!

Happy 119th independence day to my fellow Filipinos!

And today we're also celebrating the opening of another branch of a waxing salon that I really love.


Living in the Northern part of the Philippines can have its ups and downs. On one hand, year-round sun and fun; on the other, maintaining your body for year-round sunning and funning can be exhausting.

When you have the option to slip into your shorts and head to the beach or pool any time of the year, the goal is to maintain skin that’s smooth, no matter what season, which can certainly be sorted out by an appointment to your nearest waxing salon. But for Hey Sugar! Waxing Salon, it’s as much about giving clients what they need while making sure that they allow them to feel fabulous about themselves as well.

Hey Sugar makes all-natural and 100 % Sugar grooming options accessible to clients of all shapes and sizes. They use 100% naturally hypoallergenic sugar wax that minimizes side effects such as allergic reactions and chemical irritations caused by traditional wax—a gentler but no less effective way to keep your skin smooth and hair-free.

Hey Sugar!’s interiors are renowned for being warm, inviting and discreet. Clients can walk in and expect a clean and sterilized environment ideal for the sensitive beauty routines that they are about to undergo, while still feel like they are about to get pampered and taken care of.

And best of all, they can rest easy knowing they are in the hands of expert aestheticians who were trained to deliver only the best results. For newbies, this means you can easily ask your aesthetician any question about the process and advantages of sugar waxing and get a clear answer; for veterans, you know you will walk out of your appointment knowing there’s no other destination that can give you the same results using all-organic hair-removal methods.

“We strive to bring reliable and fast services, but also connect with our customers—it’s a very personal grooming procedure, after all, and we are dedicated to making customers happy and comfortable. Clients expect quality service, superior treatments and affordable prices but not at the expense of a warm and comfortable environment—and that’s exactly what we have waiting for them here,” explains Arvin A. Amaro, Hey Sugar’s Marketing Head.

At the end of the day, everyone deserves some sugar…and there’s no better place to get it than by heading to Hey Sugar! Ayala Harbor Point Subic.

And that's it!

'till next time!

Hey Sugar! Waxing Salon currently has 25 locations nationwide, including in UP Town Center, Festival Supermall, SM Bicutan, SM Sta.

My First Ever Jjajangmyun

Hey Guys!

This is just a super quick food review, we bumped on to this Korean food counter called Seoul Kimbap located at Landmark Trinoma Foodcourt (the new one). I'm a sucker for Korean Dramas, so I was really curious about this noodle dish with brownish-black sauce that the characters in those dramas always eat, it's called Jjajjangmyun and when I saw the menu, it's the first thing that I've order from the counter.

I was expecting this to be a bit salty (I love salty food!) but unfortunately it's a bit bland, it also looked different from the Jjajangmyun that I've seen on TV shows, it looks like instant noodles with a bit of black brown bean sauce and with teeny tiny bits of veggies? Artificial meat? I really can't tell. :'(

Jjangmyun Php139 served with iced tea, side dish, and egg soup.

Good thing we've ordered two more dishes from the counter, their Curry Rice which we really liked, beef strips and potatoes in curry sauce topped over rice, it tastes like the usual Japanese Curry but a bit sweeter and not so spicy.
Curry Rice Php159 served with iced tea, side dish, and egg soup.

And their Spicy Seafood Ramen, which is a step up from the jjajangmyun.
Spicy Seafood Ramen Php139 served with iced tea, side dish, and egg soup.

And that's it! I was really disappointed with the Jjajangmyun, good thing that the Curry and Ramen is not as bad, I'm still looking for a Korean resto here on my area that offers Jjajangmyun and hopefully I'll find an authentic one. :)

'till next time!

Questions hound her, as she struggles to raise her daughter alone while striving to reach her own dreams. Is she doing the right thing? Is she enough for her daughter? As her doubts grow, she will find the comfort she needs in the last place she thought of looking.

Last but not the least is "Sayaw" this will premier on June 21, directed by Mihk Vergara, the film delves into the part of a love story that's not often explored. When the feelings start to fade and a couple starts to drift apart, what should it take for them to find their rhythm and rediscover the steps to a dance they used to to so well?

Of course, I'm going to share some of my thoughts (promise, no spoilers for the last two films!) about the shorts, I loved every single minute, scratch that, every single second of each film, all of them left me teary eyed, (by teary eyed I mean I almost cried but I have to stop myself because I don't wanna cry while I'm surrounded by a lot of people at the premier :D) specially waves which is my second fave and sayaw my ultimate fave, the films also made me think about the things that I'm currently taking for granted, and the things that I should start doing now.


Here are some photos from the launch.

The directors talking about the shorts and giving us some insights about their experience while filming.


And the Sun Life brand Ambassadors; Piolo Pascual, Matteo Guidicelli, Judy Anne Santos, and Ms.Charo Santos shared their thoughts and reactions about the shorts and how they can relate to the characters in the stories.

BTW guys just like like what I've mentioned above, aside from releasing Sun Shorts 2, Sun Life will also hold a series of activities throughout June (4th Financial Independence Month) as a next step for those who would like to boost their financial journey. It's to give Filipinos the opportunity to learn about life insurance and mutual funds. For details about the upcoming activities, you can visit @sunlifeph on twitter and on IG, and their FB page.

And that's it for today!
