Either you do something with passion or do nothing at all.
Passion is a powerful thing. The only catch is that, as much as passion is an amazing thing, it can also be destructive if applied wrongly.
Take Vanessa, for example. Being a party girl for quite sometime — to the point of abuse — meant that all her efforts and passion were directed solely to this unhealthy lifestyle. Fortunately for her, she came to her senses just in time and still had the opportunity to turn her life around and change for the better, using that very same passion to make a complete 180-degree turn.
We all want to get fit and healthy. Some just lack the motivation. It’s not even a reason of time because one can always find a window, however busy, to put in the needed work.
The one thing that is usually the case which keeps us from doing the things we must do is MOTIVATION.
Now, how or where you get that needed motivation is really up to you. Some are driven by his/her desire to grow old with family… some are motivated to get healthy because of the demands of work. Others get in shape merely for the love of doing it.
We spend about a third of our day — approximately 8 hours — laying in bed, sleeping. That’s a very big chunk of our day. For some, it may be more… for others, less, depending on the demands and habits of our lifestyle. It is vital that we get ample rest so that our bodies can recharge and recover from the rigorous and stressful activities we subject them to.
But, as much as sleep may be important, no one can deny that the quality of one’s sleep is equally crucial. That is why WHERE you lay yourself is just as essential as the length of that rest.
I know the value of sleep, considering that I’ve been working since a child in the entertainment industry. We all know that in showbusiness, quality sleep is something that is very hard to come by. TV shoots and tapings last till the wee hours of the morning and you realize that when you get home, the bed pretty much becomes your best friend.
Now that I’m older, a husband and a father to two wonderful teenagers, I make it a point to stress the importance of sleep and recovery to my children. That is why my wife and I have become very meticulous with the kind of mattresses we use. In fact, we just started looking around for new ones the other week, finding the kind of mattress that would suit our needs and promises to deliver the kind of quality rest that we demand.
During our usual window shopping sessions, my wife and I found out that there are new Uratex mattresses being offered at Our Home inside SM Megamall.
I’d like to believe that you, my dear readers, also realize the value of a very good mattress… that is why I’d like to share with all of you the new kinds of Uratex mattresses I discovered which aims to revolutionize our sleep. I’m pretty sure you’ll find this new line of Uratex mattresses very interesting.
As popular as Glutathione is here in the Philippines, it is somehow still a misunderstood compound.
With all the health benefits that Glutathione offers, it has also been rumored to give gastrointestinal pain, skin allergies, and other negative effects. This is a concern especially to people who are already using the substance and those who wish to use it but are still hesitant.
So, in an effort to deliver new knowledge about the health benefits of Glutathione and to finally dispel the unfounded negative talk about this amazing compound, leading food supplement brand, VIDA Nutriscience, have teamed up with Japan’s Kohjin Life Sciences and held a press conference titled, “What Filipinos Need to Know about Glutathione” at Hotel Jen just recently.

“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud…”
You probably already know this popular verse in the bible — 1 Corinthians 13:4-8 — because it is often recited during weddings as a declaration of love, a reminder of what love truly means and how we must act towards one another. Yes, love is many things… and many things, love isn’t as well.
But in a marriage, apart from all the things that love is and what it holds true, love also brings out the best in both individuals. Love isn’t stagnant. It constantly moves and allows us to find wonderful and creative ways to stoke the fire within us in order to make old things new again — even a dying relationship.
In this particular chapter and verse of the bible, it is best understood in the line, “It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.” Always perseveres.

You can truly learn and greatly experience a culture of a people through their food. A great deal of a nation’s heritage can be discovered through the flavors and various aromas the ingredients of their dishes have. That being said, last Wednesday, it was as if I was immediately transported to Latin America when I […]
Taste is relative. What is flavorful and delicious for me may not be the same for you and vice-versa. That, in my opinion, is what makes putting up food spots very tricky. One has to be able to cater to a good number of people and be unique enough in order to be successful and […]

I love travel. Ever since I was a kid, I’d look forward to long road trips and the excitement of discovering new things in far off places. Equally thrilling is the experience of exploring places in your own country that you’ve hardly (or never) been to at all. As cliche as it sounds, the popular […]
