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 why having a good music streaming service, reliable mobile data and a dependable set of earphones are absolute musts for me.
While I’m pretty much an avid fan of Spotify and have never had the need to switch to a different service, my set of earphones are a totally different story. I’m constantly on the lookout for better ones that can keep up with my kind of lifestyle – a pair that doesn’t get in the way of my physical activities, yet doesn’t mind getting soaked by the intense sweat of my training.
Right now, I am currently trying out the BlueAnt Pump Mini.
The BlueAnt Pump Mini is a sturdy pair of bluetooth earphones that promises 6 hours of play time on a mere 1 hour charge. And though, I haven’t really worked up the battery of this baby enough to see if it does last that long, using it for 2-3 hours at a time during long hauls and intermittent training proves its power to be very promising.
Guys, I wanna share something with all of you… I hope you take the time to read this. Believe me… it’s worth it.
I am writing about this because I really want all of you to know about it.
I recently underwent a treatment being offered at Contours Advanced Face and Body Sculpting Institute called “Acutrim”. Acutrim is basically acupuncture but uses laser instead of needles. The session only takes 45-60mins and is virtually painless.
Acutrim promises to increase body metabolism and control your hunger cravings almost instantaneously after your first session. This is something that really got my attention because the constant struggle to control food intake is very real – not just for me, but for a lot of you, too.
What’s in a name?
Well, if you’re an establishment that happens to be associated with the name, “Nobu”, then clearly a lot is riding on the reputation that precedes it.
When Nobu Hotel Manila first opened its doors last year together with City of Dreams Manila’s official coming out party, it immediately became one of the most talked about and much sought after hotels in the country. And with good reason.
Nobu has become a brand known for qualities such as beauty, comfort and attention to detail. Their restaurants and hotels constantly provide the kind of excellence that has made them the destination of choice of individuals who seek great food and impeccable service.
Nobu Hotel Manila, as with all other Nobu Hotels around the world, is inspired by world-renowned Chef, Nobu Matsuhisa, and his dazzling array of hip, modern restaurants. Partnering with him is none other than Academy award winning actor Robert De Niro and Hollywood producer Meir Teper. Their establishments are designed by the internationally-acclaimed Rockwell Group, whose hand also created the look and feel of Nobu restaurants throughout the world.
My wife and I were able to have a short but very fun staycation at Nobu Hotel Manila just recently and I just have to say, the experience was nothing short of incredible.
And if you’ve never stayed at Nobu Hotel Manila and have been wondering what to expect there, then you’ve come to the right place!
Remember when Globe opened their first GEN3 Store? If you’ve ever been inside any of Globe’s revolutionary concept stores, you would agree that your first experience inside this place was that of awe and amazement. And I’m not just talking about how Globe has transformed the establishment into an aesthetically breathtaking active space… I’m talking about the overall experience, right down to how customers were kept entertained and promptly serviced.
And because one can truly never have enough of a good thing, the number 1 mobile brand in the country and undisputed leader in the digital space continues to bring world-class retail experience to more customers nationwide as it opens its first two-storey Globe GEN3 Store in Greenbelt 3, Makati. This happens to be their 4th GEN3 store since it launched back in December of last year.
This is great news for Globe customers and subscribers alike who frequent this part of the metro. Located at the central business district which is home to the country’s biggest offices, retail establishments and corporate headquarters, the previously average-sized outlet has now been converted into a two-storey version that showcases the major features of the new Globe GEN3 stores. From the impressive (and truly immersive) reconfigurable major lifestyle zones such as Music, Entertainment, Life and Productivity to the self-service customer kiosks, more customers in Manila will now be able to experience next-generation retail in a dynamic and interactive space at the newly opened Globe GEN3 Store in Greenbelt 3.
One need not to be away from home to escape the daily stresses and monotony of everyday life.
Apart from the popular 5-star hotels that are easily top of mind when one thinks of family getways, there are actually other hotels in the city that offer great accommodation and service. These places actually make you realize that more than distance, it’s the homey feeling and personal attention that an establishment offers that makes a staycation memorable.
One such hotel that my family and I have recently been to which I am pleased to report has excellent service and amazing rooms is the City Garden Grand Hotel along Makati Avenue in Makati City.
