Guys, honestly… “heart-friendly” is probably the last thing on your mind when you reach for the cooking oil in your kitchen shelf, am I right? It probably isn’t any wonder considering how health buffs give it a bad rap all these years. Well, I guess it’s high time to set the record straight once and for all…
So, while some cooking oils put your cardiovascular health at risk, there are actually others that provide essential good fats that our bodies need. Yup. It’s true! In fact, there are even some cooking oils that reduce your risk of having coronary heart disease and other cardiovascular ailments.
I’ve always wanted to try having my teeth whitened. The thought of having whiter, more attractive teeth is something I have long considered. The only problem is… I’ve also always thought that teeth whitening is a tedious and painstaking procedure. So, I never really bothered to try experiencing this kind of treatment.
But, just recently, I had the wonderful opportunity to try a teeth whitening procedure at a recently opened establishment in Bonifacio Global City called, The Smile Bar.
I really didn’t know what to expect. And up until the moment that I was about to be treated, all kinds of questions were running through my head like… Was it going to take hours? Will it hurt? Would it be an unpleasant experience?
All my questions would soon be answered as I entered the friendly premises of The Smile Bar. I was greeted with warm hellos and lots of smiles — shiny white beaming smiles, in fact! There’s just something about a radiant smile that draws you in, wouldn’t you agree?
In no time, I was led into their treatment area and I was well on my way to having shinier pearly whites. Exciting!
Hey! Hey! I recently attended the E! Bloggers Ball 2017 which was held at City of Dreams Manila last September 16, 2017. I had an incredible time celebrating with fellow bloggers and influencers in the Philippine online scene.
I made sure to look my spiffiest. Haha!
It’s that time of the year again. 917 Day! And as a loyal Globe user for as far back as I can remember, this special annual occasion is something I look forward to everytime.
Oh, God…! I’ve been meaning to make this post as soon as I finish editing my entire vlog entry about my recent trip to Bohol to explore the beautiful town of Ubay and to attend the annual Sandugo Festival.
I didn’t anticipate that it would take longer than expected completing the vlog post since I had something like 5 days worth of footage to work on. Yikes!
So, instead of forcing the issue, I decided to just split the vlog entry into two parts. Pretty reasonable considering that this first part which covers day 1 upto half of day 2 is already about 20 minutes long (what???). Yup.
I had so much fun making this vlog entry mainly because I also had a great time during this particular visit. Kudos to the awesome folks from Ubay Tourism for making us feel right at home immediately.
Music. It motivates people with active lifestyles to push further and train harder. It guides your rhythm. It keeps you company. That’s why I absolutely make sure to have music with me every single day I go out to train… whether lifting weights at the gym or doing a couple of laps outdoors. This is […]
Pasta is good for you. In fact, it’s the better kind of carbohydrate compared to white bread and rice. But did you know that pasta is good for your smartphone and tablet as well? It’s true! Just not the kind of pasta you think, though. The Pasta I’m referring to is the cool looking charge […]
Who doesn’t love protective cases? Apart from a case’s main purpose of keeping your device unharmed from nicks and bumps, it also gives your phone some much needed character. A case’s design is a statement. It also tells a lot about you and your individuality. And hey, admit it… we are all about standing out […]

Destressing normally needs a good amount of distraction to take your mind away from the usual concerns of everyday life. Now, how one destresses really varies from person to person. My usual and preferred way of relaxation is hitting the gym to lift a few weights and do a couple of laps on the treadmill […]
Just because men, by nature, are physically stronger than women, doesn’t immediately make them any better. Don’t you find it wonderful to see independent and empowered women who know how to be beautiful and dainty, yet (for lack of a better word) “badass” at the same time? Folks, meet Cassie and Mina. Don’t be easily fooled by […]
Guys, it’s that time of the year once again when we recognize and vote for our favorite restaurants, food establishments and gastronomic bets. The Choice 2017 is upon us. Being a member of “The KTG” — a group made up of food bloggers, writers, and members of the F&B industry, I am always very curious […]
I love food because it evokes all sorts of emotions. Different flavors allow us to experience a variety of feelings and even nostalgia. I always look forward to trying out all kinds of dishes, old, new… and yes, even reinvented ones. That’s why heading to the Joy Ride! by NutriAsia food truck was something I […]

Well, things are gonna get more awesome really soon since Okada Manila is getting ready for another milestone […]
We Filipinos complain about a lot of things. Common Pinoy folk would bicker and rant about how bad the state of our lives are and how tired we all are about the sad and seemingly hopeless predicament majority of us are in. As much as we are all entitled to express our feelings and frustrations, […]
Seriously… can we please stop saying that “The Filipino Spirit is Waterproof”? Do you really want to keep saying that over and over again as a kind of coping mechanism for our suffering due to government’s incompetence and lack of infrastructure preparedness because of corruption? Yes, our spirit is waterproof just as it is […]
Last Tuesday (June 10, 2014), I had the awesome opportunity of meeting and having coffee/breakfast with WordPress/Automattic founder, Matt Mullenweg. He was visiting the country as part of an extended tour he was having which included a few more countries nearby. Given that I’ve been a hardcore WordPress user for many years now and also […]
Resorts are a dime a dozen nowadays. So many know of beaches and popular relaxation destinations in places like Kalibo, Bohol, and Palawan. It’s so difficult to decide where to go. But did you know that a paradise-like location can practically be found just beside Metro Manila? A wonderful breathtaking getaway which is just a comfortable […]
Enjoying a selection of cheese with a glass of delicious wine is something I would never ever pass up. It is, in my opinion, one of mankind’s greatest pleasures (and creations). I’ve always loved cheese. All kinds, in fact. From the subtlest flavor to the strongest and most pungent of varieties. Wine, on the other […]
The best treats are normally the ones you never really expect. This is pretty much how I would put in a single sentence my short but sweet stay at Winford Hotel and Casino in Manila. Little did I know that right smack in the middle of the bustling Manila scene, I would happen to chance […]

Oh man! The video below reminds me so much of my internet provider! It will most likely remind you of yours as well (especially if you’re using “cable internet”). Watch the video below… Hilarious, right?! Perhaps because almost all of us can actually relate to it… (which is kinda sad, too). *sigh!*
