Blood Brothers Aid Inc supports World Hemophilia Month

Friends, help me to spread this news and learn on how we can support, donate and join this project from Blood Brothers Aid Inc.

Press Release

Characterized by the inability for blood to clot properly, hemophilia is a hereditary medical condition that occurs in males more often than in females, and could affect the young as much as the elderly. In special cases, a change in an individual’s genes may also cause him to acquire it within his lifetime. Though hemophilia is rare, the World Federation of Hemophilia states that 75% of people around the world with bleeding disorders have not yet been diagnosed.

April is World Hemophilia month, and Blood Brothers Aid Inc., a non-profit organization based in the Philippines, aims to raise awareness about hemophilia in the country and to get more Filipinos to recognize the problem and help through blood or monetary donations.

Do you know someone who may suffer from hemophilia?

Following an injury, a person with hemophilia may take a longer time to hea…

[Photos] Lawson's visit to Manila

Image
It was a rare afternoon bonding with Lawson when they had their press conference when the British pop rock sensation visited Manila last week.



Andy, Ryan, Joel and Adam shared their most memorable experiences as an artist and can't wait to meet their Filipino fans. They performed at Eastwood Mall Open Park last April 9 and the crowd were so amazing.

I browsed their videos on Youtube and I was surprised that their songs were really good. My favorite tracks are "Standing in the Dark, Taking Over Me and When She was Mine." I'm still watching some of their live performances and the songs were uplifting and inspiring.

One of the most recognized Britain's pop rock sensation, Lawson fans had a chance to meet and greet them.

Here are the photos taken during the presscon

Rock that Fat Away

Image
Last September, I have decided to take this challenge and hoping to trim down. I've wanted to lose some pounds and make myself feel comfortable. So, I documented my goal to lose weight. From 190, one of my heaviest last January, am now 184 (hoping to lose more weight!). All I have to do is to discipline myself from eating and schedule a work out plan despite of my busy schedule at work.







Because of some health conditions like asthma, allergies and being flat footed (I can't run and I don't use treadmill), I was advised to work out slowly (usually I spent 45 mins to 1 hour at the gym). They say that losing weight is one of the hardest things to do and putting weight is easier haha. I know that it will took several months or maybe years to achieve my desired weight, accepting this battle is somehow one of my biggest decision -- Yes, it's difficult but am enjoying it. Temptations are just around the corner, and cheat days usually happen anytime of the day!

Two of the most gorgeous leading men in Philippine Television, Richard Yap and Daniel Padilla are now featured ambassadors for Amigo Segurado Spaghetti and Macaroni. The brand's message to the public: is that you can paired Amigo Segurado Spaghetti and Macaroni with every viand with its slogan "Masarap Bagayan."





Filipinos love to experiment dishes and we also would love to discover new things thus you can pair your favorite dishes like menudo, afritada, lengua estofado, embutido, corned pork, hamondao --- pang ulam na pwedeng bagayan.

One would wonder if it’s possible to pair spaghetti and macaroni with Filipino ulam and international dishes. Amigo Segurado’s response

would be, “YES!” Richard Yap and Daniel Padilla attest that with Amigo Segurado Spaghetti and Macaroni, “Kahit nong ulam, lasap ang

sarap na bagay sa panlasa mo!”

Kids win big time last time when we attended Easter Pool of Surprised at Dusit Thani Hotel. Our lovely baby boy Ashton enjoyed the Sunday treat: candies, toys, goodies and a magic show! plus a souvenir photo taken at the Funlipix photobooth.

Kids got a chance to fishing out their Easter eggs and find some hidden surprises at the pool side.

Other activities on that day were bubble show, color activity, kids fashion show and magic show.

It was fun Sunday bonding, we even had our own Easter egg hunting inside the hotel room and we spent the entire afternoon swimming.

Here are the photos taken during that day :)

We can feel the summer heat especially when going out for work and travel under the heat of sun (ouch!).
April Fool's Day was really not entertaining at all and I wasn't able to catch some of their jokes (sorry, am busy!).

This month, April is the month of outings, gatherings, and summer jobs for all ages.
Here's what I've got so far and I know you're happy to see it here:

My Bisita Iglesia 2013 experience: 7 Churches, prayers can move mountains

Image
We worked with clients for long hours for five days and oftentimes attended several events, gatherings & special engagement on weekend.

I have decided to stay in Manila to spend my holy week and create my itinerary for Maundy Thursday - Bisita Iglesia. It doesn't matter how many churches you're going to visit as long as your devotion is true and sincere. For the past years, our family was practicing visiting different churches in Metro Manila. So, I would love to try it on my own.


St Pio


Loreto




San Sebastian


Binondo


Sta Cruz


Quiapo

I woke up late in the morning and rushed to my first & second destination in Libis, Quezon City: St Pio & Holy Family Chapel, then, I took a long ride going to Manila... Bustillos is my third destination at Our Lady of Loreto and fourth is San Sebastian, these two churches had good memories when I was in College. And, my final three churches were San Sebastian, San Lorenzo Ruiz and Quiapo Church.





Good thing that I have found a prayer guide for 7 …
