The Philippine Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by Maestro Olivier Ochanine, welcomed the holidays with a surprise treat for museum guests one Sunday afternoon. The brass group played their instruments through the 5 main galleries - even up the stairs to meet Stan the T.Rex - before joining the rest of the symphony at the Canopy Plaza. It was truly an extraordinary musical performance to the delight of many kids and adults.
For some people, the most interesting thing that they remember about peas is in one scene of Cartoon Network’s animated series, The Powerpuff Girls. In this early episode, Supper Villain shown in 1999, the new next-door neighbors are invited to the girls’ for dinner. The neighbor, Harold, then orders, “Eat your pea, Professor!” in what now is one of the most famous – and funniest – scenes of The Powerpuff Girls. It is a memorable scene because The Professor, a grown man, tried in an excruciating way to eat and swallow one small pea.
A lack of information makes peas much maligned and there is much to clear about them. Like The Professor, there are people who find it difficult to eat their vegetables. But unknown to many, peas (and lentils) are two of the healthiest foods on the planet. They may be small in size, but they are a powerhouse when it comes to diet and nutrition.
Dried peas, lentils, and chickpeas are called ‘pulses’. These are their seeds and members of the legume family that are packed with protein, fiber, anti-oxidants, calcium, and iron. According to the US Dry Pea and Lentil Council of the USDA, pulses are everything on one plate: they deliver great flavor that’s not only nutrient-dense, but also gluten-free with low allergen and low glycemic responses. They are one of the greatest additions to any diet, but especially for those who are diabetic, those who have heart problems, and those who are trying to lose weight.

Typhoon Yolanda left the country with almost 6,000 people dead, more than 2 million families affected and P34 million worth of properties destroyed.

Just as important, this calamity has also displayed the emphatic nature of humanity. The outpouring support from around the Philippines and all over the world gave the victims encouragement and strength to rebuild their homes, their families and their lives.
SYKES is one with the rest of the world in responding to Visayas’ call for help. Days after the storm has passed, the call center quickly organized a donation drive and reached out to different organizations for relief efforts. Some of the employees even took it upon themselves to volunteer in the repacking and delivery of the relief goods. The SYKES site in Cebu also set up a feeding program for the Yolanda victims. SYKES maybe a global company but the bayanihan spirit is evident. Seeing employees donate not just food and water, but also their time and effort is truly moving.

It was my 3rd day boarding the vessel, St. Michael, the Archangel. As I waited for familiar view that would tell me that I’m in Manila already, I couldn’t resist to just sit back relax and enjoy the view.

It was two years ago when I got first hold of my BUM Tshirt or you could say the first BUM shirt for my son and now BUM is rockin up the holiday with Daniel Padilla as one of it's endorser.
The ever-evolving clothing brand BUM goes for a rock-star and utilitarian vibe for its Holiday collection. BUM is incorporating leather, oxidized prints, ombre pieces, and knits, into its Holiday Collection.
Dubbed as “I Start the Revolution,” which is the third and highlight of BUM’s three-part My ATEEtude campaign for 2013, the brand’s Holiday Collection emphasizes on pieces that go for two things: an edgy, rock-star vibe and a stylish, utilitarian chic.
Think biker jackets, acid-wash skinny jeans, hoodies, long-back shirts, and leather-accented items. Leather,which can make the wearer look casual, sexy, and daring, appears in the form of piping, pockets, or sleeves.
And because the Holiday collection serves as the brand’s banner campaign for 2013, it is but natural for BUM to up the ante this time around.
After playing around with bright colors, BUM goes for more solid colors. Chino bottoms with new trimmings, digital prints, cargo pants, and ombre pieces—which refer to garments that have a graduation of colors on them— have also made their way into this collection.
Knit is also a key element in the Holiday collection. Expect BUM to come out with knitted jackets, shirts with collars, and comfy but stylish blouses for girls.
With BUM’s new pieces, you now have all the reasons to be a standout this season.
BUM is available in leading department stores nationwide.

I always say that the start of the adventure is when you choose which transportation would you use; and my choice is 2GO travel. It all started when I was booked on line for my second longest trip bound to Iloilo-Bacolod. There’s this HUB that they called located in Luneta where passengers like me can wait for the bus that would take me to the port where the ships of 2GO travel are docks.
I was so happy with regards to HUB because not only you got to get a glimpse of one of the finest and memorable park in the Philippines, the HUB actually blends with its surrounding with its pink color and chic design.

I love music, especially the classical one. With children that are performing artist, classical is the only way to go. But what if you can turn a pop into a classical. I was invited to watch a show, that in one way was close to my heart, the tenors of classical music. The show featured the The Angelo’s .The Angelos is a classical-pop tenor group composed of young, vibrant and good-looking Filipino artists: from left to right- Paolo Libiran, Louie Abaigar, George S. Tagle.
The event was held at the No Other Bar located at Metrowalk, Ortigas Pasig. I was supposed to just drop by but the music they played made my feet glued to the ground and myself sit comfortable in the sofa. It was a night of entertain and passion.
When it comes to product about relaxation and pampering, I was always on the lookout. Honestly, with the busy world that we’re in, it’s not a sin to pamper ourselves because it will also promote health. Just recently, HARNN opened its 1st store in the Philippines.
