Did you know? There are different kinds of love. For one, there is Eros. Eros is the most famed kind of love, it is passion and desire. Eros is what comes in between two couples.

But what about other kinds of love? Love of different kinds also exists and should be celebrated everyday.

Philia – this kind of love rooted for deep friendship, best friends forever. This love is for someone we could really count on.

Agape – This is love for everyone. If you see someone who needs help, and you help out, you are showing Agape.

There are more kinds of love with different kind of perspective. With that said, it only follows that love isn’t just about your typical romantic antics! It’s time to change the notion that love is for couples only. This time, why not share the love to as much people as possible? Family, friends, and even to strangers and animals, too.

Philippine’s no.1 soap for family skin germ protection, Safeguard, shares tips you wish you’ve done before. Who said that the season of love is exclusive to romantic couples? Let’s change the game this year. After all, we learned how to love at home with family and friends. There’s no better way to celebrate love than to give love to people close to our hearts and even to strangers. Spread positive vibes in ways you’ve never tried before! Here are simple yet meaningful ideas to share the love all day er’day!

! 1. Bake cupcakes for bae instead of buying flowers and chocolates Dark chocolates and red roses are so overrated. This time, be different and bake cupcakes for your loved one. Don’t know how? No problem. The Internet has tons of baking recipes for first-timers. Believe us, whether you perfect it or not, your bae would be so ‘kilig’ with those cupcakes you baked from your heart.

2. Treat mom and dad to a relaxing massage and salon service The ultimate superheroes in your life deserve a break from all the headaches you may give them. Give mom a new haircut and treat dad to a foot spa. Spoil them further with a relaxing full body massage to cap it off.

3. Call the nearest charity institution to ask how you can help` Love grows in the family, so it makes sense to share it as one. Join outreach programs with the whole family (or even your friends!) to extend the love at home to those who need it the most. It’s a different yet meaningful kind of bonding experience. In the same way, donate your excess essentials to less fortunate individuals. This is a perfect way to give back and share the love this season, even to strangers!

4. Create new memories with a spontaneous trip It’s a fact– the most hard-to-forget memories are created on the spur of the moment. So skip planning and pack your bags! It’s time to unleash the adventurous spirit in you! Take a random trip with bae, friends or family. Drive to a place you have always wanted to explore. Or, book a flight to the destination you have never been. Celebrate love with adventure.

5. Practice proper hygiene habits (aka. don’t cause the spread of germs!) Yes, you’ve read it right. Spreading love can be also lead to spreading germs. Avoid this by simply practicing proper hygiene and washing your hands regularly. Love is in the air, and so are germs! When you touch, hug or kiss your loved ones, there’s a big chance that you are spreading germs that could cause sickness.

Here’s an alarming fact from the first Philippines Handwashing Index (PHI); 7 out of 10 Filipinos say that they wash their hands after using the toilet but in reality, only 2 out of 10 really do. PHI is a breakthrough study recently commissioned by Safeguard. Keeping your loved ones safe from germs is a healthy way of showing how much you care.

Superiority

When you express your affection, be sure that you are spreading love and not germs. Wash your hands with Safeguard and water to keep it clean. Your first line of defense against sickness-causing germs, Safeguard is clinically proven to provide up to 24 hours of germ protection.

#CerelacNutripuffs: A Fun Healthy Snacking for Your Baby

A 24 month-old boy named Dabibot was seen rummaging a huge duffel bag..19814389_1800285836651435_1928225555_o.jpg Continue reading “#CerelacNutripuffs: A Fun Healthy Snacking for Your Baby”

#GerifiedPH: 뽀롱뽀롱 뽀로로 (Little Penguin Pororo Vital Vitamin C)

One of the things my kids dread everyday is me cornering them; pushing them to gulp down brownish syrupy fluid I like to call Vitamin C.

***

In this age and time, fast-moving people tend to rely on fast-moving food aka the unhealthy almost non-nutrient fast food, and our household is no exemption. We try to eat healthier at home, but there really are circumstances when time isn’t in our side and fast food is a friend. Hence, we don’t normally get the proper portion of vitamins including Vitamin C that we should be getting from the food we eat.

And so are the kids.

Plus, like I mentioned earlier, the brownish syrupy fluid wasn’t exactly mouth-watering.

Did you know? Aside from Vitamin E, the body use and drain Vitamin C everyday.

뽀롱뽀롱 뽀로로! 🐧(Little Penguin Pororo)

Pororo is one of the worldwide famous cartoon series and character that originated in South Korea, and Pororo Korea presented quality multivitamin supplements for kids in the form of fun, eco-friendly chewable tablets.

One of the things I noticed when I showed my kids Vital C is that they don’t tear down the packaging right away. They appreciate the colorful illustrations first, Clyde made me read out the Hangul characters. He even got his notebook and pencil, and tried copying the characters on a paper. When done with satisfaction, he finally ask what’s inside and how does it taste.

Main Ingredients includes:

밀크칼슘, 유산균, 자일리톨, 비타민 C (Milk calcium, lactic acid, xylitol and vitamin C)

This cute Multivitamins is definitely an eye catcher, made for kids and kids-with-Pororo-at-heart! I like that it’s not sweet, it’s sourly-sweet and I thought Dave won’t dig into this, but alas, the toddler has a tooth for sourly treats, I need to hide it from Dabibot, or else he’ll consume them all in one sitting.

Being a mom starts from conceiving, or bringing up a child with care and affection even if they’re not your own… but once you are a mom, you’ll be a lifetime mom, for it doesn’t stop from feeding, burping, changing diapers, making sure they eat thrice a day and keeping them away from cold and flu.. not even after sending them to preparatory school and later to universities. Motherhood, it’s way more than that.

This event was not about the baby, nor the toddler, nor the teenager; it’s all about the mommy. Surprisingly refreshing, the event break one of the oldest wives tale ever told, shattering the huge proverbial glass wall into tiny insignificant fragments

that good mothers shouldn’t have time for themselves because they’re too busy taking care of her family and home.

Read on and that raised eyebrow and sarcastic glare will turn into a slow but steady nod making your lips smile involuntarily…

Here’s why parents should encourage kids to drink more water

In the Philippines, there is a growing rate1 in children obesity from age zero to 10 years old, and this is mainly attributed to the consumption of processed food that is high in sugar and fat alongside an inactive lifestyle.

18718328_1744382088908477_217738397_n.jpg

Among the number of drink alternatives available today, Absolute Distilled Drinking Water understands that serving kids with plain water, instead of sweetened or flavored drinks, is quite an uphill battle for parents. But building on this habit earlier on will encourage kids to develop the good foundations of healthy eating.

Absolute encourages parents to start building the culture of hydration at home by being good example. So here’s a rundown of why you and your kids should start the habit of drinking water today.

1. Hydration
The body loses about eight cups of water every day. This lost water needs to be replaced to avoid discomforts such as nausea, headaches, muscle cramps, and ultimately dehydration. Sweetened drinks don’t really re-hydrate the body as efficiently as water. In fact, fizzy drinks make the body lose more water by stimulating urine production. So, when it comes to water replenishment, nothing beats water.

2. Weight watch
Sugary drinks are loaded with calories and of course, sugar. Studies have found links to prevalent child obesity and flavored drinks, which is why some schools have mandated bans on such. If you want your child to maintain a healthy weight, limit their intake of sweetened drinks and get them to opt for water to quench their thirst.

3. Sugar and tooth decay
Sugary drinks make it easy for bacteria to grow inside the mouth. Bacteria feed on the sugar and create enamel-damaging acids in the process. Water, on the other hand, has natural elements that strengthen the teeth, making them less susceptible to damage from plaque and sugars.

4. Poor appetite
Consuming too much sweetened drinks has shown to affect a kid’s appetite. If a healthy diet is top priority, make sure they only consume sugary drinks occassionally, and more importatnyl to establish water as the first choice when they are thirsty.

5. Healthy and inexpensive
On top of it being calorie-free and with tons of health benefits, water is inexpensive compared to sweetened or flavored drinks.
There is more to water for everyone, but one thing is clear: water is better than any other drink alternative. To encourage your kids to love drinking water, educate them on its benefits and how it functions in their bodies. Always make it available and accessible to them, and make it drinking water a fun occasion for the family.

Absolute Drinking Water, in its mission to encourage kids to drink more water, has collaborated with The Walt Disney Company Philippines to launch kiddie water bottles with the iconic Disney characters on them. This is to promote the value of water hydration and make it an exciting and fun choice over sweteened drinks.

Get your kids to love and be excited about drinking water by giving them the Absolute Disney kiddie water bottles.

#gerilenmbf: SPAM CAN’s #ALL4SPAM

Aside from the irrelevant lottery winnings (that I wished I could believe), explicitly inappropriate proposals (that sadly didn’t help in upraising my self-esteem), and inherited riches to-be-claimed (that I wish I could legally declare) messages I consistently receive on my spam folder, when I hear the word SPAM, I spontaneously remember the shiny aluminum cans we get from huge, heavy, full-of-stamps, amoy-imported balikbayan boxes from relatives abroad and grandparents in Hawaii! And I will no longer wonder why because

Did You Know?

1 Hawaii eats seven million cans of SPAM products every year! (to think that it was small islets of land grouped together)

2 Hawaii’s largest festival every year is SPAM JAM! (and I thought pineapple was the rave in that island!)

3 I finally realized, Hawaii with it’s SPAM madness, is the perfect #SPAMSquadGoals!

My stomach involuntarily growls, and my mouth reflexively salivates as I vividly recall the sweet whiff of delicious ellipsoidal pink meat fried to a crisp – just the way I like it.

SPAM®

This delicious American icon and global brand launched in 1937 as “The Meat of Many Uses!” and the world quickly ate it up. It was the arrival of WWII, and the need for easily transported & protein that did not need refrigeration, that fueled the SPAM® brand’s incredible growth around the world. Today, with over a dozen varieties sold in more than 40 countries, this 80 year old brand continues to ignite invention all over the world.

The first ever activation event of SPAM® CAN in the Philippines was held last March 20 at the Glorietta Activity Center. It was led by Senior Brand Manager of SPAM® Brand, Hormel Foods International Division of Hormel Foods Corporation, Ms. Jaynee Sherman comfortably saniched (sandwiched) in between these SPAM.
