How Can Resveratrol Help Women

If we are to compare who has more effort becoming healthier between men and women, the answer would be the latter. Girls, admit it, you are more conscious of the way you look then Adam's race. It is like you always need to stay good looking and young. It is very evident when you go to gyms or drugstores. You will see more women than men. A lot of women are biting to any fast weight loss diet, thinking lie it is their mission to stay fit. Some are also depending on anti-aging creams being sold on many beauty shops. And women behaving like this are applauded by most men. They love them more. And with this discovery of “resveratrol”, ladies who are already informed have probably found a bliss form sweats and exhaustion.

More than fast weight loss and anti aging, resveratrol supplements can do more for women. Researches being found and funded are experiencing major developments. Some even say that the said compound is the greatest discovery of all time, along with antibiotics, and the…

Meteor Garden 2018 - My Thoughts

Warning: Some of my posts below contain spoilers and based on my opinion.
So, read at your own risk.

When Meteor Garden was introduced in the Philippines. It was an instant hit and created a "Meteor Fever." I remembered those days that I've been fangirling to F4 and even watched their concerts in Manila and followed them abroad to attend their shows and album launching.

After a decade, a New Meteor Garden (remake) is trying to make another hit featuring the same story line but there were added scenes which made more interesting to watch.

When Netflix got the rights for the drama. I was so excited because I won't be able to browse online to look for Engligh Subtitles.

The new Shan Cai's character is sometimes aggressive but yet sweet. Shen Yue's acting needs more improvement on the first 6 episodes making me hard to understand her expressions. She made adjustments on her acting when Shan Cai began to admit herself that she loves Dao Ming Si and willing to figh…

My 4 days adventure in Indianapolis + Gen Con 2018

Indianapolis is the capital of state of Indiana. It is approximately 3 hours to 4 hours drive from Chicago (184.1 miles) and less than an hour flight.

My original plan was to take a train or bus going to Indianapolis but unfortunately there's no early schedule in the morning so I've decided to book a flight through American Airlines.

I'm so lucky that I've got a TSA PreCheck, that means I am not removing my shoes and jacket while entering the security check machine.

The flight is less than an hour and what I like in Indianapolis International Airport is their designated pick up terminal for Uber/Lyft users so I headed and follow the signs going through the parking terminal pick up.

Welcome to Indy

Induo's Annual Ladies Pampering Event

I was looking for something to do on a weekend when I checked Facebook Events near me and discovered this pampering event held in Chicago Marriot O'Hare which is 20 minutes travel from home via Uber right by Cumberland CTA Blue Line.

I arrived before noon and paid $5 for the entrance fee (the fee is good for two actually!). They also sell raffle tickets which will be draw around 12:30 PM and 2:30 PM (the catch: you should be physically present on the event when your number is called!).

Free services include: hydrating hand treatment and massage, collagen hand treatment with polish, mini makeovers, hair styling, free nail art and massages!

The first thing I did was to signed up for a free massage. It was a 3 minutes free massage but you can add $1 per minute if you want to extend the time. So, I signed up for 10 minutes and paid $7.

I also walked over the booths and talked to the vendors on what they were offering - I was really interested on aromatherapy oils and accessories!

Nippon Paint (Coatings) Philippines, Inc. announced the holding of thesearch for the Asia Young Designer Award (AYDA) for the year 2018.

Carrying the theme “FORWARD: Challenging Design Boundaries,” AYDA 2018 encourages Architecture and Interior Design students to depart from their usual comfort zones. They are tasked to challenge the vernacular archetypes and present design boundaries so they can come up with more creative creations in a variety of ways possible.

During the last decade, several design disruptions have created a tremendous impact on the design industry with a more recurring pattern and consumer behaviors that have influenced the way people interpret spaces. Notions like “adaptive reuse,” “disruptive technology,” and “experimental tectonics” came up in the industry so Architecture and Design communities were presented with a new challenge: to reconsider, rethink and recreate new codes of aesthetics out of the box.

AYDA 2018 is a design competition open to Architecture and Interior Design students (third-year onwards). Each student is allowed to submit One (1) entry. Deadline for submission of entries is o…

Meteor Garden 2018 Reboot: Meet the cast, watch the trailer andMVs #MeteorGarden2018

After 17 years (if my calculation is right), the new Meteor Garden is back. The reboot has 48 episode which will air on Hunan Satellite TV from July 9th every Monday to Wednesday at 22:00 Mango TV Entertainment (please confirm if this is correct!).

We already knew that the story was inspired from Japanese manga Boys over Flowers and to my surprise, Harlem Yu and Penny Dai agreed to use their songs in the opening and closing. I am not much familiar with the cast and am trying to fill in some information based from reading their profiles online but I know there will be a lot of comparison from original cast (they're the best for me! but let's give the new cast members a chance). I watched the trailers and I've found out that they filmed in different locations which to me is very interesting to see. Storyline is somehow adapating the current school environment. I'm looking forward to watch it with English subtitles online. Please share if you have any other additional inf…

Toys Reign Even When It Rains - Toycon Day 2 Coverage

It was my first time heading to the annual Philippine Toys, Hobbies, and Collectibles Convention during a rainy day. But what the event has in store was definitely worth it for those who brave the downpour.

A rain of toys
I entered the SMX Convention Center slightly drenched from the rain outside. But all the activity and the people moving around made the convention hall a little warmer inside.

Right from the entrance, visitors like me were greeted by an impressive display featuring local superheroes Darna, Captain Barbell, and Lastikman. The booth contains several impressive large-sized statues of Mars Ravelo's three most iconic characters.

There are also a generous helping of T-shirt’s, posters, and other merchandise for fans.
The booth was a nice reminder that these three characters still are popular despite the lack of mainstream presence in the last few years. As of late, the Darna movie teased in last year’s Toycon to feature actress Liza Soberano has yet to go into productio…

2018 Toycon PH Poplife FanXperience - Day 1 - Presscon and EventHighlights

I remembered when a group of toy collectors meet up in a small conference room, showing their collections and chatting about their favorite characters. There was never a dull moment seeing them exchanging views on the latest superhero or sci-fi movies, comics they read and tips on where to find good stuff.

After few years, a group was formed "The Philippine Toys, Hobbies and Collectibles" aka TOYCON PH. They started to organized an event for all toys, collectibles, hobbies, comics, gaming and a lot of pop culture! From a small venue to occupying all halls in Megatrade Hall - Toycon is one of the largest convention in Manila! The rest is history. Many tried to copy their style, but Toycon is much more dedicated and well-experienced compared with the others who only want to earn money. Toycon has a heart and passion in what they do. No event is perfect so they are trying to be more flexible by listening to what the attendees would like to experience. From small spaces they mov…
