Tree Top Adventure offers the first and the only motorized ziplines in the Philippines. From a zipline that is seated to a free fall from 60 feet above, one can truly appreciate nature at its best while quenching one’s thirst for adrenaline rush.

If one wants to relax, then, one might try the Canopy Ride, a ride similar to the concept of cable cars. The Trekking and Skywalk is good for adventurers who just like to walk and appreciate the beauty of nature. Want to fly like a superhero? Then one might want to try the Superman Ride, a horizontal motorized zipline in which you’ll be flying once backwards and once forwards. Or, Silver Surfer Surfer might be for you in which you’ll be standing on a specialized platform and glide up and down diagonally for multiple cycles.

I tried Superman Ride and Silver Surfer.

Life Yoga : Yoga. Swim. Dance! at The Palace Pool Club


Lately, been stressed out about my health condition. I need to see my Neurologist earlier than scheduled to know the real status. We're happy that the MRI result was okay, no recurrence of tumor. So, I asked my doctor if I can do pole dancing (haha. Yes! Pole is on my bucket list! ) but she said NO! She recommended yoga and running, instead. For now! Ü

Upon knowing Yoga is safe for me, I searched for Yoga studios in the metro. While googling, Ms. Patricia Prieto's tweet flashed on my screen (yes, I'm a follower or rather a "stalker" on both her Twitter and Instagram for a year now! hihi ) sayin' that she's throwing a Yoga giveaway! Without having second thoughts, I joined. Luckily, I was chosen as one of the 3 winners of a free pass for the Yoga Pool Party by LIFE Yoga Center. Yay! 






Last Saturday, February 20, LiFE Yoga Center hosted a #YogaPoolParty at The Palace Pool Club that started in the morning and extended into the late afternoon.



The #YogaPoolParty was hosted on the deck of the Palace Pool Club, where tables and chairs were cleared out to make way for multicolored yoga mats provided by Yogini Manila. Doors opened at 10:30am and guests slowly trickled in to settle into the mat of their choice, and explore the booths set up by partners Nuxe, FunFit & Yoga Rat.

Hatha Yoga teacher Moshe Reyes

At 11AM, the party kicked off with hatha yoga teacher Moshe Reyes hosting the event.

The first lucky enthusiast
With tons of amazing prizes for the attending wellness enthusiasts, the party started on a high note with a giveaway from Yoga Rat – a much-needed yoga towel to soak up the sweat from a healthy workout on the mat.

Meet our pretty instructor - Ms. Mandy Del Rosario
After welcoming remarks were made, Moshe welcomed to the floor LiFE Yoga instructor Mandy Del Rosario to lead the poolside Vinyasa session to the beats of DJ Emel Rowe. Mandy is no stranger to leading classes with a fun, musical spin as she regularly teaches a LiFE Yoga Vinyasa class to her own Rock n’ Roll playlist every Saturday at the studio on Forbestown Road, BGC.

Dressed in moveable yoga gear and swimmies, the #YogaPoolParty attendees sweated it out to a flow focused on building core and arm strength through balances and inversions versatile for yoga-practitioners of any level.

DJ Emel set the pace with ambient music that kept spirits up and minds focused on the practice.



After a 75-minute practice, everyone enjoyed a short cool-down to complimentary fruits and ice-pops, and refreshing lemon-infused water.


















While muscles were still warm after an energizing yoga session, attendees let loose with a cardio-dance workout led by NIA instructor Bea Tabuñar.

The program proper closed with amazing prizes being given away by plant-based French skincare brand Nuxe, and sports gear brand Yoga Rat.


We won! We won Nuxe products! Whoa!
Thanks to Globe Free Wifi in The Palace Pool Club I got to post in Instagram.

Guests were also treated to limited-time offer discounts to LiFE Yoga.

Teachers Moshe, Mandy and Bea were all decked out in Champion apparel for the duration of the event.

Attendees having fun by the pool




After all the blood-pumping activities, attendees chilled by the poolside and enjoyed special discounts on a curated healthy menu by Café Naya, with free pool access, showers, locker and towel rental care of The Palace Pool Club.

If you missed out on the fun, don’t fret! #YogaPoolParty will be back and in full gear in April, just in time for the summer. Keep posted on lifeyogacenter.com and @life.yoga for announcements on upcoming promos and events.

Another Saturday well-spent! Let us continue to celebrate LIFE and live life to the fullest!

Live Each Day as if It's Your Last

Naalala ko humingi ako kay Mr.F (MITD) ng letter kung ano ang sasabihin nya halimbawang bumalik na ako kay Lord (eulogy) 2 years ago ng hindi ko alam kung bakit. Bigla na lang lumabas sa akin. Dahil ang katwiran ko para alam ko kung ano message nya kse hindi ko alam kung maririnig ko pa yun kung sakaling mangyari nga. Tinawanan lang nya ako saka niyakap. Pagka lipas ng ilang araw o buwan, na-diagnose na ako ng meningioma o tumor sa utak. Kamuntik na ako doon!  mabuti na lang kase wala pa rin syang nagawang letter Ü  And the rest is history...



Dalawang araw (Feb 2-3) na akong alas-singko ng umaga natutulog dahil nahihirapan ako huminga. Lagi akong kinakapos ng paghinga. Pati si Mr. F hindi rin makatulog ng maayos dahil nagigising sya sa tuwing babangon ako, tinatapik nya ang likod ko, minamasahe nya ang kamay, legs at paa ko para makatulong pero wala pa rin. Hanggang nung gabi ng February 4, 2016 nakaramdam na naman ako ng kakaiba. Nag s-sorry na ako kay Mr. F at sa mga anak ko. Umiiyak na kami. Sinasabi ko kung gaano ko sila kamahal. Niyayakap ko na sila at pinaghahalikan kase parang nararamdaman ko na naman na konting-konti na lang hindi ko na kakayanin. Kase nga nahihirapan ako huminga. Pati ang mommy ko na nasa probinsiya nag text na ako pero ang nilagay ko lang "I love you, mommy!!! :) " hindi ako nagsabi ng nararamdaman ko dahil ayaw na ayaw ko siyang nag aalala at nag iisip. Matuluyan man ako kahit papano maganda ang huling message ko sa kanya. Nag message na rin ako sa mga kasama sa bahay ng panganay kong si RC na sabihin sa kanya na mahal na mahal ko siya. Tinawagan na ni Mr.F ang mga magulang nya na nasa Antipolo para dalhin ako sa ospital ( huli ko na nalaman na namumutla na daw pala ako hindi lang nya sinasabi sa akin kase lalo akong magpa- panic) wala akong ginawa habang naghihintay sa pagdating nila kundi magdasal ng magdasal, yakapin ang mga bata dahil wala naman nakakaalam ng mga susunod na mangyayari... 



Bigla ang bunso ko si Y, nagdasal sa harap ko : " Papa Jesus, sana po gagaling na ang head and heart ni mama. Para po kapag magaling na siya pupunta na kmi sa Hong Kong Disneyland (dream nya ang makapunta sa Disneyland, epekto ng kakapanood sa Disney Channel) tsaka magd drive si Dada ng yellow na car na gusto ni Mama." Pagka dilat ko ng mata ko, habang nagdadasal pala sya umiiyak sya. Hinahawakan nya ang ulo ko at dibdib habang nagdadasal. Lalo akong umiyak paanong ang bata na ito napaka galing mag dasal. Alam ko na pakikinggan sya ni Lord kase galing sa puso ang pagdadasal nya. Habang ang Kuya LR, nakatingin lang sa amin tahimik pero alam ko, alam nya ang nangyayari. Nagdadasal din sya pero ang dinadasal nya yung 3 o'clock habit. Ü Bago kami umalis ng bahay ni Mr. F para pumuntang ospital, sabi ni Y : laban tayo, mama ha? fight lang! Wala akong choice kung hindi lumaban kahit ano pa ang sakit at hirap na nararamdaman ko ng mga oras na yun, niyakap ko na naman sya at sinabing lalaban ako, anak. Mahal na mahal kita. Kayo ng mga kuya mo. ( parang pang teleserye ano? Pamilya kme ng mga artista eh. Hehe) 



Walang umiimik sa amin habang nasa sasakyan, hawak lang ni Mr. F ang kamay ko ng mahigpit kse nahihirapan pa rin ako huminga at nangangapal na ang parte ng labi ko at mga kamay. Pati ang daddy ni Mr. F, tahimik lang na nagd drive... Nang dumating kami sa ospital bigla akong lalong natakot gusto ko na umuwi bahala na lang kase ang daming tao sa loob. Nakakaawa na mga hitsura nila, meron akong nakitang babae na hirap na hirap ng huminga kahit may oxygen ng nakakabit sa kanya, kaya parang lalo akong nahirapan huminga, puro suka na ang hinihigaan nya, iritable na,(pasintabi kung kumakain ka) , nakapaligid na mga kaanak nya, meron naman matandang lalake hirap din huminga, namamaga ang paa, binti at tiyan, may sanggol sa bandang dulo na tinutulungan ng nanay nya huminga sa pamamagitan ng  "manual resuscitator". meron din matandang babae na unconcious na tinanggihan daw sa pribadong ospital dahil sa Social Services lang sila kaya ni refer sila sa ospital kung nasaan ako. Kawawang matanda... :( Kahit hirap na rin akong huminga, pinikit ko na lang ang mga mata ko at wala akong ginawa kung hindi magdasal pa rin. Magdasal hindi para sa akin kung hindi para sa lahat ng mga tao sa Emergency Room. Ang sakit sa dibdib na makita ang mga nangyayari sa kanila at sitwasyon sa ospital halos wala ng madaanan dahil punum-puno ang malaking ER. Minsan maiisip mo ano ng nangyari sa pondo para sa mga public hospitals? Hirap na ang mga pasyente sa kalagayn nila pero parang dedma lang ang mga staff. Cguro pagod na din sila kasi madaling araw na?... Mahirap maging mahirap talaga. Tsk.tsk... Kaya minsan gusto ko ng pumasok sa politika eh. Iboto mo ako ha?! Hehe. Hinde, maraming kawawang maliliit na tao :( 


Tinawag na kami ng Doctor, si Mr. F ang nagsasabi kung anong nangyayari kse lalo ako kakapusin ng hininga at hihingalin kung ako pa magsasalita. Gumawa sya ng request na ipa xray ako. Kaya pinagawa namin kaagad. Maya maya bumalik ang doctor. Normal naman daw. Salamat sa Diyos! May namamaga lang na rib(s) kaya ako nahihirapan at nasasaktan sa ilalim ng kaliwang bahagi ng dibdib sa twing hihinga ako. Ang panganagapal ng labi at pamamanhid ng kamay ay dahil sa nerbyos e kase nga nagpa- panic na ako. Mahirap kumalma kaya! Hindi maganda sa pakiramdam... Niresetahan lang ako ng gamot (pain killer). Medio kumakalma na ako noong pauwi kme pero mas excited ako na maabutan na gising ang bunso kong anak. Kase para sabihin sa kanya na pinakinggan siya ni Lord. Masasabi ko na masaya ako dahil nakuha ng mga anak ko ang pagiging madasalin ko. Sana makalakihan nilang ganun. 



Pagkakita ko sa bunso ko, sinabi ko sa kanya na dahil love siya at kami ni Papa Jesus, pinauwi si Mama at hindi na-admit sa ospital. Sabay kami nag dasal ulit at nagpasalamat sa Diyos. Nung kinwento ko sa kanya yung sitwasyon sa ospital, pagka banggit ko na may baby sabi nya " wait mama...Papa Jesus, pagalingin nyo po yung mga may sakit lalo na po yung baby sa ospital kasi po kawawa naman siya..." May naituro naman pala akong mabuti sa mga anak ko. Sobrang masaya at proud na ako doon. Kung sakaling may nangyari man na hindi maganda noon, magaan pa rin sa loob kase nasabi ko sa kanila ang mga gusto kong sabihin.



Ito ang isa pa na gusto ko ipost dati pa sa facebook. Alam ko nag post ako pero naka "Only Me". Haha. Ang sa akin lang, bakit kaya kailangan mawala muna ang isang tao bago natin sabihin ang magagandang pwedeng sabihin natin. Kapag wala na, tsaka sasabihin? Para kanino ba ang sinasabi natin para sa mga taong nakikinig o sa taong wala na? Hindi naman natin alam kung naririnig nga ba nila o nakikita pa tayo. Sana habang kasama natin ang mga mahal natin sa buhay, sa araw- araw, huwag natin kalilimutan sabihin ang mga gusto nating sabihin. Kung gaano natin sila kamahal, gaano sila ka importante, ano ang nagawa at nagagawa nila sa ating mabuti. I-treasure at i-maximize ang bawat minuto na kasama natin sila dahil hindi natin alam kung ano ang susunod na mangyayari. 

Laging magpasalamat sa Diyos sa tuwing umaga na gigising na kasama pa rin ang mga mahal sa buhay. Kaya, ngayon pa lang yakapin at halikan ang mga mahal mo sa buhay. Sabihin mo gaano mo sila kamahal. Now na daliii... Ü Ü Ü

Kahit na ano pa ang nangyayari laging tumawag sa Panginoon at magtiwala dahil hinding hindi nya tayo pababayaan. Maraming beses ko nang napatunayan. Turuan natin ang mga anak na maging malakas sa pamamagitan ng pagtitiwala din sa Diyos na kahit anong pagsubok kakayanin basta kumapit lang sa Diyos at hindi sa ibang tao o bagay. 

Bukod sa pagdadasal, mga anak ko at si Mr. F, may isa pang tao na nagpapalakas ng loob ko. Simula mapanood ko sya sa shinare ng kaibigan ko sa facebook, sabi ko is-share ko sya sa iba para hindi mawalan ng pag-asa na lumaban sa buhay. At mahalin ang sarili higit kanino man.

Siya si Anita Moorjani , may Stage 4 Cancer pero nabuhay after 30 hrs na pagka comatose...



" Don't be afraid to be who you are and find your joy. One of the problems with us is, with life, we have lost our JOY. We have forgotten who we are. We have no passion for our lives anymore. We are afraid to express ourselves. Get in touch with your heart and express who you are. LIVE LIFE WITH JOY!" - Anita Moorjani
