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.
We get discouraged and feel like giving up sometimes… especially when we are faced with seemingly insurmountable challenges and setbacks. But all it takes to get us right back on track is a good look around to see that other people have bigger mountains to move and harder obstacles to overcome — and yet they continue to press on.
It has been said time and again… What you lack physically, you make up for in heart. It sounds so cliché already and yet there is a reason why it lingers on — because the saying holds true.

They don’t make things like they used to. Don’t you agree? My wife and I still use this retro Osterizer of my childhood days until now. This is the very blender I used to play with back in the early 1980s. Talk about heavy duty. Now that’s getting your money’s worth. Cool, ain’t it?
