Outbreak 2014


Zombies will once again invade the metro, this time inside the walls of the majestic Intramuros. Touted as Operation Stronghold, the mission of this Outbreak is to free Dr. Alfonso Adarna from the evil fanatical band of brothers. It’s the familiar fear but with a whole new level of terror presented by the brotherhood, all within the intricate interiors of the famed walled city. It’s an Outbreak like you’ve never seen before!

Giving runners the hydration to help them complete their mission is Summit Natural Drinking Water, while Nestea in a Bottle will be there to refresh the first 2 waves of the run.

Reserve your strength, save the date, and sign up for the mission, happening on April 5. For more information, visit www.outbreakmanila.com and like Summit and Nestea Philippines on Facebook.

Summer is the most active season of the year and we get to soak in the sun for full six months or so since Philippines is a tropical island. The best way to enjoy the sunny side of the day is by having healthy skin!

Skin is the largest organ of our body. This is where we “live”. This is the first barrier of our body, the first “defense”, the “wall”, the protective wall. That said, it’s as important to take care of it just the way we do to other internal organs. Unfortunately, the skin is usually one of the most neglected parts of the body. The neglecting part includes not minding what we apply to our skin.

We should make sure that what we use to our skin is not just effective but most of all – safe, and one proof to be sure it’s safe is if the product is original!

Just like the original Kojie.san kojic acid soap!

  • Kojie.san is the first kojic acid soap to be commercially available in the Philippine market.

-       and compared to other local brands, Kojie.san is more affordable and locally available in almost all stores nationwide.

  • Kojie.san has a micro peeling effect, which makes it a potent whitening product.

-       it does remove dirt and sebum on initial use, leaving it clean, smooth and when rinse with cold water makes skin poreless. It also brightens skin and eliminates pimples on the long run. Since Kojie.san jas micro peeling effect, this is best use at night right before bed time hence allowing other night products to sink in to just freshly exfoliated skin and not clogged with foundation and makeup.

  • Kojie.san does not contain any harmful chemicals.

-       we need to embrace the skin we are in and we need to keep it on its best shape! Mind the ingredients you apply on your skin, make sure you are using only the original kojic acid! Original Kojie.san soaps doesn’t have harmful chemicals hence keeping skin at its whitest without compromising its health.

  • Kojie.san contains antioxidants and 100% all natural ingredients

- maximize your investment on kojic acid soap, have whitening and antioxidant rolled into one bar with Kojie.san soap!

Aside from the major points mentioned above, Kojie.san is has a nice fragrance and could exfoliate skin to less than 3minutes without the burning feeling. This whitening soap is perfect for oily skin.

Remember, when you buy fake soaps, you’re not just compromising the quality of the product, you also are just saving coins for future damage which includes skin cancer by the way.


Be original! Only buy original Kojie.san kojic acid soap!

Championing a Cause: A Purposeful Life is a Successful Life

Reach, Aspire, and Persevere to Make the World a Better Place

Success is often defined by one’s personal triumph, but there have been a few, inspiring individuals who broke the code and found success in helping others. These people live a life of purpose, one meant to make the world a better place, and this is what their personal success is all about. While there is nothing wrong in wanting to improve one’s life through personal gains and success, there is also a different joy associated with living a life dedicated to others.

Championing a cause isn’t difficult. You don’t have to be famous or even rich in order to do something that can change the world.

Reach for a Cause

The only way to be dedicated to what you do is to be passionate about it. This is true even in the causes we choose to support. Each person is wired differently and has different things that they want to change about the world. The first step in championing a cause is finding one by asking the following questions: what makes you tick, what is close to your heart, what is it that you want to change the most about the world. Once you find the answers to these questions, you will be able to find a cause to spend time on, like raising funds for, volunteering time at, and spreading information about worthwhile organizations.

Aspire to Make It Happen

The next step to finding what you are passionate about is turning it into reality. The first step is to contact an organization that is committed to your cause. Having someone to help you is the best way to get it started. To make the experience more memorable, you can also ask close friends and family to join you in starting your cause.

Persevere and Don’t Give Up

Just like any goal, it will take a while to see the results, but don’t let that discourage you. Always remind yourself of why you started in the first place, and remember who you are doing it for. The purpose is enough to help you stay focused and motivated. Just think of the lives you will be changing, and you will be strong enough to weather any difficulty in the process of reaching your goal.

Helping you live a purposeful life is Summit Natural Drinking Water. A long-time supporter of the Philippine National Athletes, Summit is a strong believer that true success can be found in using our personal accolades in helping others reach for theirs.

summitJef Mendoza, Senior Brand Manager of Summit says, “We’ve always been passionate about supporting the dreams of our national athletes. For us at Summit, helping them reach their dreams is the true measure of our success.”

Shirley May Fragrances

I’ve been meaning to buy new scents for summer because I wanna make this season memorable and to make that happen, a special scent is indeed needed. I was eyeing the Love Signature from Penshoppe which is around Php500.00 but fortunately, I bumped into a crazy sale at the department store of market market! A buy one take one deal nonetheless!

What I got?

imageShirley May fragrances!

This is my first time to hear and try fragrances from Shirley May and as fortunate as it can be, the Shirley May’s Water Drops smell like Penshoppe’s Love Signature! OMG! I intended to buy two 50ml of the same scent until I smell Starlet – that made me take one of each! ;)


Water Drops hits that soft young spot in my heart, it reminds me of my high school days as it smells just like Hearts by Avon (which is the sole reason why I’m eyeing the love signature at the first place) – that sadly has been discontinued. Water drops smells of freedom, carefree life, and full of adventure kind of forever.


Starlet on the other hand reminds me of bright lights and slowmo heart drumming music with electric eye connection to that somebody on the dance floor or a conservative private dinner date with holding hands in between a thornless red rose. It’s sweet and romantic for a more intimate moment. Hello couple’s summer retreat!


The bottles are made of thick glass, shaped like long gowns, with caps made of cheap plastic – which is forgivable as I don’t really mind throwing the caps off to fit this to my purse. Cute and girly, these affordable fragrances were only Php398.00! It’s a steal!

We’re running late for an afternoon meeting and I forgot to bring my baby’s favorite pair of shoes! Barefoot we go and he wants to run around! What to do?

Worry free! Mamala Ellen was there! She got these cute Tough Kids Spike blue sneakers with white lace for only Php199.75!

Thanks lola for shopping and strolling around with babe while lolo and I were on a conference meeting! :P #familyfreelancers #familybusiness

Wait for baby’s OOTD post! It will be titled hues of sorbet – perfect for summer! :P

My precious all-in-one shoulder bag from Kimbel is suffering from overloading and it’s all worn-out.  I knew in my heart that I had to let it go, that I am badly in need of a backpack – you know – to keep up with work and babe all at the same time. What I’m looking for in a bag is the durability and versatility without compromising comfort and style. Good thing we visited SM Baguio and that it was Women Wednesday and that it’s on sale! A 50% off kind of sale!


The original Beverly Hills Polo Club was founded in the early 20th century and took a leading role in the sport through-out America with many famous players. Today Beverly Hills Polo Club is one of the leading brands in the United States.


Their distinctive trademark is instantly recognizable featuring the trademarked polo horse and rider logo, one of the most widely recognizable icons in the world.

Original retail price is Php1399.75 with a discount off, this Beverly Hills Polo Club backpack is a steal!


It has a secret compartment inside. Has extra lock.


Has double stitch on the most vulnerable part and has a gap for extra comfort.


Bright pink makes me giggle! Talk about being a girly girl that I am, I imagine myself doing my round of site inspection with this on my back.



I think we will have a very long time together.
