Living Protected From the Urban Sun

It has been almost a year since Daylong first introduced its campaign for daily, cellular sun protection, advocating that sunscreen should be part of everyday skincare regimen. The trusted makers of Cetaphil launched Daylong to provide clinically-proven protection against the sun, all the way to the cellular and DNA level. With a state-of-the-art formula that has a uniquely light texture and a smooth finish, this Swiss brand successfully conveys its message for daily, deep, and complete solar defense.

While the whole city bustles in preparation for summertime, and for days of basking under the beautiful sun on some of the most exquisite local beaches, Daylong has been working quietlypreparing for something bigger.

Staying true to its commitment of caring for the skin, whether the sun is out or not, Daylong conducted a study to reveal that the sun exposure in the city has the same intensity as at the beach. Using sun sensors that can detect UV radiation, Daylong has shown that the UV radiation in the city of Manila reaches the same level as on the beaches of Boracay.

The concept of the study was to support our advocacy for daily sunscreen wear. Daylong is new in the game, but this is how we want to make an impact  by undertaking a responsibility to provide daily sun care and protection that works even on a cellular level. explains Jon Lee, Brand Manager of Daylong.

Daylong worked with five influential urbanites, whose schedules are immersed in city-living lifestyles. Each of them has a different role: student, blogger, runner, host and writer, and mother but each shares the interest of balancing happy and successful lives.

These multi-faceted women are student and FOX Sports Asia courtside reporter, Janeena Chan; stylish mommy blogger who works on a 24-hour duty for 2 children, Jackie Go; the triathlete mom known as The Bull Runner who is a health and fitness inspiration to everyone, Jaymie Pizzaro; in-demand beauty blogger and owner of Catwalk Cosmetics and Wigs, Marj Sia; and lifestyle show writer and host, Marie Lozano.

Daylong produced a video where these five dynamic women show how they embody the lives we have today always on-the-go, fulfilling duties simultaneously at home and at work or school, but always remaining protected from the sun.

Supporting this advocacy and in attendance was also Dr. Daisy Ismael, President of the Philippine Dermatological Society. Daylong’s commitment to daily sun care can be viewed online at www.Daylong.ph, and on Daylong Philippines’ social media pages: DaylongPH on Facebook and @DaylongPH on Twitter and Instagram.

On February 21, 2015, from 11:00 AM to 4:00 PM, Tree Top Adventure will hold its very 1st press conference and media tour in which over twenty participants from the TV, online, radio and print industries will attend.
The program will be graced by Tree Top Adventure’s CEO Ms. Ma. Camille O. Montejo. A short program will be presented with a question and answer portion will take place first before proceeding with the tour in which the participants will try all the rides. They would also be trying the only motorized team building facilities in the Philippines.

Tree Top

Tree Top Adventure features six activities: two slow paced and four fast paced activities. One slow paced activity is the Trekking adventure in which you’ll be toured within the area. The tour guide will be introducing local plants and trees and share interesting facts about them. If one wants to see the forest and appreciate nature from the top of the trees, they could try the Canopy ride. The entire ride has a hanging bridge and five stations which can carry three persons at a time in which you’ll be transferring from one tree to another. For heart pounding activities, one might want to try the Superman Ride, a horizontal motorized zipline in which you’ll be soaring back and forth in less than a minute. Another activity you could try is the parachute fall in which you’ll be going upwards, slowly, and when you’re 75 feet above the ground, you’ll suddenly fall. If you literally want to surf in the air, you could try the Silver Surfer, an inclined zipline that swings you back and forth between two trees. If you want to experience the extreme, we recommend you the Tree Drop in which you’ll be suspended 60 feet above the ground, mission impossible style and you’ll be dropped in a matter of seconds only.

Tree Top Adventure also offers the only motorized Team Building facilities in the Philippines in which participants would be challenged physically, mentally and even emotionally.

Tree Top Adventure’s another branch, located at the Camp John Hay Baguio City, will also hold its press conference and media tour on March 14, 2015.

The Blood Compact Shrine is also known as the Sandugo Shrine. This is the first friendship treaty between the Filipinos and Spaniards in the year 1565 wherein Rajah Sikatuna and Miguel Lopez de Legaspi made a cut in their wrist and drank the drawn blood that was mixed together between the two leaders.

In Baclayon is where the oldest stone church in the Philippines could be found. Unfortunately, its been destroyed during the last major earthquake in Bohol and is now on going retrofitting and restoration.

Prony is a Philippine reticulated python that is self-developed and trained. It was captured in 1996 weighing 5kilos already with a length of 5feet. In 2005, it was over 280kilos with a length of 27feet and 34inches wide.

Unfortunately, as you could see from the photo above, the biggest and largest captivated snake died last year. This snake, that could only be found in Albuquerque is now preserved in this shrine.

If you decided to drop by here, your stop would still be worth it as they also shelter different kinds of animals and to replace Prony, they now have two snakes of different species. Their skin was so smooth Clyde can’t stop touching them! :P

Also, this site won’t be complete without the famous tarsiers of Bohol and to compensate the absence of live tarsiers, they have this big tarsier wall where you could pose as a tarsier yourself. I like this even better than the ones in the Tarsier Observatory!

The cutest tarsier of my life! :P

Tarsiers are famed for being the smallest monkey with large eyes. Mine has small slits for eyes! lol


WAHM baby’s carrier is for blueprints too!


With Ariel, clothes are well taken care of without extra time to soak, effort to rub & budget for bleach.

Toddlerhood is the age when children start to become more independent and discover themselves as individuals.  Yet they still have a limited ability to communicate and reason, which makes for a very challenging combination.

So parenting can be quite tricky when your toddler has temper tantrums on the fly and has messy potty training days thrown in the mix too.  Come join us and make your family life easier by picking up a lot of helpful discipline strategies and potty training tips at our Toddler Discipline and Potty Training workshop.

I’m a pen and paper type of person. Someone who loves to doodle using colored gel pens, compose unpublished songs and poems, jot down daily tasks, reminders and plan everything ahead on paper. But sometimes, ready-made planners or journals that are readily available lessens our freedom to design our own and express our thoughts by being creative.

That’s why Memory Crafters and CraftCreate thought of having a meaningful workshop entitled Make Your Own Dream Book. A DIY kind of journal wherein you can pick a fabric to cover your dream book and prettify by filling it up with your lifelong goals and dreams. In that way, you’ll always remember all the things you’ve had from the past. May it be adding a daily photo, quotes, scribbles or treat it as your diary. It’s even more special because you made it with the hopes of your dreams to be fulfilled.

Make Your Own Dream Book

With this, we would like to invite you to be part of our first workshop this year! Make Your Own Dream Book will be the first workshop for the whole-day event on February 28, 2015 at Scarsdale S&R Shaw, 9:00 am – 12:00 nn. Workshop kits, modules and light snacks will be served!
