Advocacy | Modern Heroes On Wheels!

Nothing feels more fulfilling than starting the year right by supporting Institutions to further their advocacy. This time, I am with CORE, my favorite clothing brand distributor: Primer group‘s CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) arm. This has been an annual activity for them; where they choose local institutions and donate items that can supplement to their efficiency. This year they have “Cycle for Life” and “Tuburan Institute” as CORE‘s beneficiary. Usually this kind of gathering fills your heart as you hear inspiring stories on how they started and the life changing contribution in the community. But it was a different kin

Escape | Must Watch Siargao During Metro Manila Film Fest!

Just finished watching Siargao by Director Paul Soriano, lead by Jericho Rosales, Erich Gonzalez and Jasmine Curtis. I was lost for words for a second, wonderfully shot and the story line; I realized that sometimes, it’s not destiny that we are up against but these Ideas and Concepts that possessed us and affects the way we move in the reality that we breathe in each and every day. Every decision is more like dancing with the waves, once you enter that barrel (ginormous wave) it’s either you stand firm, find your balance and get through it or either you fall and let the waves push you back from where you started and fight(paddle) your way again to catch your wave. Urghhhh!!! I just love this film! I wish I can spoil you but, no, you deserve to watch it on the big screen, with your family during the Metro Manila Film Festival.

Digital | That Uratex Christmas Short Got Me Home Sick

Emotion is the main game when it comes to digital contents, but seriously? how can this one be so on point! Uratex, who is celebrating 50 years this 2018 unveiled a Christmas-themed video to celebrate family memories made inside the family bedroom, yeah, I missed those days when we all stayed on one bed. Giving salute to the importance of family traditions, the video starts by showing a young man longing for the love and company of their mother, particularly an Overseas Filipino Worker (OFW), which in my case, I’m the one who’s far from home and Im just so eager to be with my family this Christmas and spend time together!

Lifestyle | Be In A Healthy Environment.

When people see me as someone who achieved my  life goals… I thank God for having friends who sees me as who I am, my flaws, my despair, and yet they managed to bring out the best in me. Your friends are your best and healthy competition you can ever acquire. It may not appear directly but the way they motivate you makes you want to grow and do more in your craft. The 4th quarter of the year are always the most crucial one, with anxiety as your uninvited guest, you’d definitely need to cling on to people that keeps your flames brighter that gets you through the storm.

Digital Lifestyle | Leveling Up Pokemon Ultra Sun & Moon Experience

Since it’s confirmed that Pokemon Ultra Sun and Moon will be the last Pokemon installment for the DS Family. I wanted to explore every inch of the game and I believe every gamer would love to play their games as if they are in the exact environment. When I started playing Monster Hunter 4u, that was the time when Back Ground Music made sense to me. As a gamer, even when you go offline, Theme songs and Background Music lingers and you re-imagine “what if I was in that exact scene” watching my favorite character or my favorite fight scene as if it’s just right in front of me. During the launch of JBL Pulse 3 Bluetooth Speakers, the idea of connecting up to a hundred of the same unit and connect them all together would be the best symphony you could ever have!

Lifestyle | Getting Ready For More Transient Guest This Christmas Season

I’ve been living next to Ninoy International Airport since 2013, and for 4yrs now, it wont surprise me anymore when people just pop out of our door step with whatever excuses they have, why their stranded etc etc… Of course, it’s Christmas season and everything just go crazy. Well, it’s not the other side of Christmas, but, whenever someone needs help, especially this season, we just need to remind our selves that the essence of Christmas is “God made himself available for all of us”, and who am I not to do the same when He had given me everything I needed even if I dont deserve it. So, since I’ve been expecting more and more transient visitors this season. I went a head of them and did my early Christmas upgrades for my kitchen!

Lifestyle | When Adult Life Meets Last Quarter Stress

“The Last Quarter Syndrome”, Where everyone is fighting their way to reach desired quota or pitching for a better project for the next year. Most of the time we feel tired of the things we thought we’ll be doing for the next 10 years; only to find out that we are just uninspired and unmotivated . Recently Im having a series of stress induced hyper acidity which reminds me that keeping your mental health is one of the most exciting part of adult life. Fun part, China cant manufacture what you need in this scenario; but you can have your happy pills for free through constant interaction from family and friends. One night while I was organizing my files, it made me look back to the things I do to get away from stress. Take note! this is a very important routine especially if you live alone in the metro.

Pasta Fusili Duane Bacon Blogger Lifestyle Health DIY Independent

Buhay Independent | 50 Pesos Below Pasta Dish

Before I start posting other blogs, I would like to dedicate this blog for my lola, the late Narcisa Cadile Parcon. It was a game changer when she commended my very first DIY Pasta, it was a Fusili topped with corned tuna and a handful Cheese Melt, a survival dish I came up with once upon a time when my paycheck got delayed. When I was younger, I never imagined my self cooking since I feel like the kitchen hates me with all the bruises, burns, cuts and everything I acquire every time there is an attempt to cook. Until when I moved in the metro, all alone, adult life taught me a lot!
