Vivo launches touching Christmas video


To celebrate the holiday in true Filipino Christmas spirit, Vivo Philippines releases a special holiday video depicting a touching story of a widow, her children, and a husband and father they lost in a war. The story revolved around a grieving wife and mother who tends to her small children on a Christmas eve when a group of carolers offered a rendition of ‘Silent Night’ outside their home.


Laden with gifts and noche buena food, the carolers were then welcomed inside the home of the aggrieved family only for the former’s emotions to be stirred by a solitary portrait of the father of the home—a soldier who perished fighting for peace.


The Vivo special Christmas video is an instant hit amongst the family-oriented Filipinos, garnering 781,000 views, 4,212 shares and almost 41,000 likes within six days after its release on Vivo Philippines’ official Facebook page. Because of its theme centered on family, Christmas, togetherness, and gratitude, Vivo’s special Christmas video hits home for many Filipinos. 


The comments section abounds with emotional sentiments with messages of gratitude for the soldiers who fought to re-establish peace in Marawi. Some of the comments even expressed gratitude to Vivo for “giving [the audience] an avenue to thank the ones who enabled them to celebrate Christmas in peace.” “very meaningful and heartwarming! a tribute to all our soldiers and father! hats off to Vivo management for making this short film.”


Vivo, by way of the special Christmas video, shares and celebrates what a truly meaningful Christmas for Filipinos. Family, togetherness, empathy, and the spirit of giving make a Filipino Christmas like no one else in the world.

How can parents make the most of the child's formative years?



How can we as parents guide our children to become the kind of individuals we can all be proud of? 

Last December 1, I was one of the fortunate few who were invited by Jollibee to attend a parenting talk with the world-renowned parenting and character formation expert with over 22 books on the field, Dr. Michele Borba.

During the #SweetSayaMoments parenting chat with other speakers I was able to note some essential takeaways that I'll be sharing with you.

Host Ms. Gelli Victor and Ms. Cathleen Capati

Jollibee Philippines Managing Director for the Flagship Category, Ms. Cathleen Capati said that Parent-child bonding is pivotal in building character during formative years. "It can be very challenging to raise kids in this day and age. But if there's anything that Filipino parents should not forget, it's the lasting importance of actually spending time with their children to teach them the values that we hold dear to our hearts, such as compassion, generosity, confidence and love for the family. 


I got teary-eyed with the latest Jolly Spaghetti ad. The ad showed how a childhood can be nurtured through simple yet impactful quality time with the family not only with the parents but with the siblings too. And children who are exposed to and are given love, care, happiness, affection, respect and generosity tend to naturally grow up paying these blessings forward as well. 

Watch this. 😍

It is an eye-opener for numerous people because it states very clearly that 1-7 years old is character building. And for most parents we don't even realize that is a critical time because we all think "bata pa yan, hindi pa nila naiintindihan,hindi pa sila nakaka relate" but it is a critical moment wherein they're building the character that they are going to have when they are all grown-ups.

L-R Ms. Aiza Tabayoyong,  Dr. Michele Borba, Gelli Victor and Ms. Cathleen Capati

Ms. Aiza Caparas-Tabayoyong of AMS Love Consultants for Families and Couples said that the best way to raise our children is to :
✔ be present for your child. Go back to basics. Spend quality time. Be a role model of good behavior for your children .

✔ Have a 1 on 1 : one day a week date day. Find time with each other. Getting to know each child, each child getting to know each parent. During that date day... No GADGETS! I know this is a big challenge specially to us parents, more than the kids 😂

✔ Social, emotional, physical well-being - take those moments in time because we don't have a chance to rewind and do it all over again. 

She also answered one of the questions on how to be able to still instill positive traits in some kids even during tough times like throwing a tantrum, acting up in public, " We have to know when it's not about us. Ignore negative behavior and a lot of afgirmation for positive behavior. Because sometimes it's just getting our attention" Ignore. Be consistent.

What causes tantrums? Boredom, the child is hungry, needs a nap, needs relaxed time


Dr. Michelle Borba has gained renown and popularity among parents all over the world for her practical, research- based advice for strengtening character, fostering compassion and developing emotional intelligence in children of all ages. Her aim is to help strengthen children's character and resilience, build strong families, create compassionate and just school cultures, and reduce peer cruelty based on her experience working with over 1 Million parents and educators worldwide. One of her key teachings is to "develop a close, mutually respectful relationship " with children, which should be established during these formative years. The first seven years of a child's life is crucial to developing his or her character and values, which is why parents should continuously nurture them during those years for them to grow up into well-rounded adults. "Studies find that kids are most influenced by those persons toward whom they feel the strongest attachment and deepest respect, " Dr. Borba said. Children more likely to copy these individual's moral beliefs... just make sure the relationship is mutually respectful: you treat your child with love and respect, and he treats you the same way in return. "



She emphasized that this ideal relationship is one that takes time building and one that parents should put effort in establishing. Dr. Borba recommends that parents should dedicate "one-to-one personal uninterrupted time" with the child regularly to build this mutual respectful and loving relationship. I've tried this before, but had a hard time doing it on a regular basis. Will try this again as this is really important to be able to maintain a loving relationship. Our children don't have 
much time to have a childhood, because they are always (doing) and we are always BUSY which puts guilt on all of us 😔 Well, no matter what parents do, parents is always about guilt. Agree? 😂

✔ Do just take a quiet little reflection moment without your kids watching and check in how often you are all plugged in. How often are your children viewing a TV, using an iPad, watching flicks and texting? Did you know that the longer your child looks down, were discovered, the lower your child's emotional literacy score go? 

✔ Be the parent and start to say NO. If your kids try to resist (yes - that's their role : to resist) but you as parents suppose to say no. Figure out when you want your "UNPLUGGED TIMES" to be. The #1 best time that everybody should have their gadgets down is during family meals. So parents, I know you are guilty too (coz I am- sometimes) , put your gadgets down and enjoy your kids because there's no rewind button on parenting! NO. GADGETS.DURING. FAMILY.MEALS. That's the key in your lifetime rituals, your tuning in to one another, and creating your memories. There's no greater parenting tool kit than be able to look at your child's eyes and figure out how they are doing and that is what you mean as relaxed little rituals that are fun and they create a long- term connection memory.

✔ Sit down and look at your own child and fast-forward him and ask your self what are the values you want to see in your child? Whatever the values is that you can think about and say that's what matters most. All of your parenting will align with it. You'll be able to find dozens of simple, no-cost ways to live within. 

✔ Connect Face to Face
✔ It's all about each other and how you are treating each other. Stop thinking about "me". And start thinking about "We". 

"GOOD PARENTING is about how to help out children live their lives to the best of their abilities -- and that in itself is an immensely powerful role," Dr. Borba concluded.

Btw, I think each household should get a copy of Dr. Borba's  book entitled "UnSELFIE" - why emphatic kids succeed in our all-about-me  world. Big help for us parents.

So what are you waiting for? Head over to the nearest Jollibee branch today and treasure those simple moments with family over Jolly Spaghetti, ang‘Sweet Saya na Di Malilimutan’. Available for dine-in, take-out, delivery and drive-thru transactions, Jolly Spaghetti is priced at P50.00*.

Sale! Great Argan Sale Year 2 November 28 – December 12, 2017 at Nailaholics

What is the best way to combat dry skin especially this cold and merry season when it's  impossible to say no to all the revelry? Argan oil! 😍

Of course, aside from eating healthy (a lot of greens, water, and fiber), getting enough sleep and a lot of exercise help. Also using moisturizer that encourages natural production of the oil glands. Argan oil is thought by many to be the best choice of oils to increase healthy oil production. Argan oil stimulates the skin, reduces rashes and itchiness, and is safe for sensitive skin.
Argan oil is most commonly used as a skin moisturiser to hydrate and soften skin. With its high vitamin E and fatty acid content, argan oil is the ideal product to give skin a natural boost. It absorbs easily and is non-greasy and non-irritating, which makes it a great natural moisturiser.

Drawn from trees that grow in the southern region of Morocco, argan oil is a rich blend of antioxidants, vitamin A and E, polyunsaturated fat, and essential fatty acid. It’s literally food for hair and skin, eases inflammation, and gives it a boost of moisture from within that lends itself to an inner glow—the hallmark of healthy skin. 

It’s important to note though that you get the real deal. So be sure to get it from somewhere that has a longstanding reputation of reliability and quality. It’s the concentration of argan oil that allows you to receive all its benefits, so make sure you’re getting it from a brand that can be trusted when they say that they are giving you a bottle with no artificial preservatives,” shares Lorraine Baterina, Brand Manager of Nailaholics Nail Salon and Spa.

That said, here’s an insider tip that is just in time for the holidays: you can get a free 50 ml bottle for every purchase of one 100 ml Argan Oil bottle at any Nailaholics Nail Salon and Spa branch. 

Each 100 ml argan oil bottle is priced at Php 1,390. Now you get to take home more with the Great Argan Sale, giving you a savings of Php 790 which is the original price of your free 50 ml argan oil bottle. You better hurry though because this exclusive promotion runs only from November 28 to Dec 12, 2017.

Hey Sugar! Now spreading organic sweetness at Trinoma + Review


I remember a friend way back in College , (his name is Edison) he used to tease me for having mabalahibo (hairy) legs. 😔 I got conscious, so I shaved. But shaving is really a not-so-good idea as the hair would grow back in no time -- thicker and bushier 😭 Edison and I are still friends, btw.

Today, I must admit, I really am into waxing for like 7-8 years already. And I'm lovin' it. Why? For grooming and hygienic reasons. While some women also say it enhances their sex life.  

I won't say that the first time isn't ouchy. It is!!! But I lived through it and get it done again and again and again. Good thing I have high tolerance for pain. Tiis ganda na lang! 😂 But after my operation (craniotomy) last December 2013, it took me 2 years to have it done again. I'm afraid that the operation will affect my pain tolerance but thankfully, it didn't. So, you dirty mind, I know what you are thinking! Of course, I have alternatives during those months that I wasn't able visit the salon. 😛 Toinks!

I was planning my visit again recently to Lay Bare (where I frequent) when I got an invite for the opening of Hey Sugar! Trinoma. Finally, a branch that uses all-natural, sugar waxing and talk-of-the-town waxing salon near my place. I was delighted about the invite. I went to the salon's opening last November 17.



It is located at the 1st level of Trinoma Mall, beside Mercury Drugstore entrance. But wasn't able to try their services as I was suddenly needed elsewhere

Recently, I got the chance/ free time/ me-time/ mama mode off time - whatever you want to call it. I braved the traffic just to get to Hey Sugar! Trinoma. I got their Package #3 which includes Underarm, Full leg (though I asked for half-leg only), and Brazilian. At first I was edgy when I learned that they'll use hot wax and strips, as I had a bad experience before (not with LB - because they only have cold wax) with a salon that hurt me so bad. But then the aesthetician assured me that hot wax is better than cold wax, etc..., so I gave in. I think that's one of my problems, I easily trust people. Hehe. It took us almost 1 1/2 hrs to get things done. 😁

Now, let me state some factors and let YOU be the judge of 2 waxing salons - Lay Bare and Hey Sugar! 

Hygiene and Cleanliness
I am a stickler for good hygiene and impeccable cleanliness when it comes to my personal zone. LayBare uses different wax in different areas, but sometimes the one they use on my UA will be use on my legs. (I guess this depends on the hair? well, I got less hair on those parts, maybe?). Hey Sugar! on the other hand uses strips in different areas but with same spatula. Both salons double- dipped? I guess so. No double- dipping please ✌ Cleanliness is essential in this industry. Not only does it keeps us (clients) safe, it keeps the techs and salon safe as well. 

 ðŸ“Mask- waxing technicians of LayBare  wear mask, Aestheticians of Hey Sugar! , don't. Healthwise, it would be beneficial to both the technician and the client if the waxing tech would wear a mask. 

📍   Gloves - for me, gloves are a must! Like hello, you'll be touching my privates. Hands are exposed to blood, body fluids, urine and feces. Think about what you touch and who before you may have touch the same spot. With LB they use new gloves (both hands) on each clients. While on HS, the tech used only 1 on her left hand and eventually took it off because as per her, other clients would ask her to take the gloves off because it's more painful when it touches the waxed area 🤔 well, not with me 😔. What can I do? We are in the middle of a Brazilian 😂 so, I just let her finish. In no time, it's done!

Facilities - Both salons have a room just for you, with LB it has a sliding door, while in HS, just a curtain. Privacy has to be on top of your list for your waxing experience. HS's salon is classy and cozy at the same time. I love the lemony smell of the salon. It's interior is eye-catching, too. 

Staff - both have professional and trained staff. But those in HS are friendlier, they will make you feel at home. 

The OUCH Factor
Both have the same level of ouchiness. I would suggest, if your pain tolerance is not as high as mine. Take mefenamic (pain reliever) 30 mins before you go to your waxing salon.

PRICE - LB is cheaper with minimal difference. Will update this article once I posted their updated rates. 


In conclusion, find a salon that connects with you, one that listens, and makes the service as comfortable as possible. Do not visit a salon that isn't clean and isn't informed. It's for your safety. 

So which waxing place should you go to when you're in need of getting the hair down there away?

Will be posting more about waxing (since I opened another window of myself to you), what to avoid before and after waxing, its benefits, tips, etc...


Happy Waxing! Remember, hair free is care free 😘

Any experience on other waxing salons? What are your thoughts on the two I mentioned? Did you have a different encounter?
