Shamcey shares, “I always believe in aspiring for excellence and sometimes we have to challenge ourselves to go beyond our comfort zone. I never had a beauty pageant experience before but when I decided to join Bb. Pilipinas, I gave it my all. I started with the basics -- I took care of my skin and hair to build my confidence”. She further added “These days, it’s easier to look good and feel great with Watsons. The new store is so inviting that I end up choosing products not just for myself but for my loved ones too”.

Now, Venus is joined by her real life best friend Marie Ann Umali who herself is a beauty queen (Bb. Pilipinas-World 2009). “I met Venus during training and since then we have bonded by sharing beauty tips even after the pageant season. It’s more fun and colorful sharing beauty stuff with your girl best friend” says Ann. Venus giddily adds, “When we go to Watsons, we head straight to the make-up area and test our favorite brands. You can’t go wrong since there are beauty consultants always ready to give advice or suggest alternatives…we always feel extra beautiful after shopping!”
Finally, Fatima Rabago is an in-demand model and a regular fixture in the fashion and advertising world. She has graced countless campaigns and runways shows but if you ask her, her favorite role is being a mom to her lovely 2 year old daughter, Daniela. Proud mommy shares “Daniela is a fun kid, as early as now she is showing strong signs of being a model and posing for the camera. She likes putting on lotion, smelling fresh and even playing with make-up! We enjoy shopping in Watsons especially for our personal care products, we just love to keep things fresh and fun!”

Variety is the spice of life, and the same is true for runners, who also like to mix things up in regard to their routine and their training. This need for variation extends all the way to the events and competitions in which runners participate.

To satisfy different quirks and fancies, event organizers have explored a multitude of ways to keep the running community on their toes. This includes running competitions with added obstacles, on off-road tracks and, most recently, holding races at night.

Competitive racing in the dead of night certainly adds a different dimension to the running experience. Being enveloped by darkness requires runners to be more sensitive to the slightest conditions on the road, demanding complete focus and undivided attention. Preparations in the run-up to competition also vary. Training regimen, as well as prep time, tend to differ, too, which only adds to the challenge.
Local runners have already had the pleasure of trying out night races through different competitions already hosted here in the Philippines. This night race craze, however, started in 2011 with one event, the Energizer Night Race.

To say that mothers deserve the best gift on a day dedicated just for them is an understatement.   So, as we honor the only woman in our lives this Mother’s Day, we shouldn’t let cliché presents get in the way of expressing how much we appreciate and love our Moms.

Our Kitchen By Manila Catering Services: My Mother's Day Treat

Having a leisurely lunch on a Sunday is a best way to unwind after a long work week. But Mother’s day takes lunch to a whole other level. It calls for an extra special feast. Only one thing came on mind, Our Kitchen by Manila Catering!

I discovered Our Kitchen through a friend who recently got Manila Catering Services as their food provider for their wedding last January of 2013. Our Kitchen is a one-stop shop that offers a wide array of delectable dishes, mouth-watering cakes, breads and pastries, and not to mention their Ready-to-Heat Meals that are convenient enough to take only minutes to heat, serve and eat. All these are made available through their Food-to-Go delivery service.

What I like most at Our Kitchen is that they do not use artificial flavoring and preservatives on their dishes.
Growing up with a Spanish cultured family, I became familiar with the taste of Spanish Cuisines.
I love Paella, and I have become quite the connoisseur for I have tasted a lot and cook it as well for my family. My standard is quite high when it comes to traditional Spanish food. I have tried Our Kitchen’s Paella Marinara and I fell in love with it! Every mouthful of the perfectly cooked rice was an experienceof the rich, buttery, sweetness, saltiness& freshness of the seafood. There was a balance of flavor and texture that is delightful to the palate. A very familiar, distinct Spanish taste that I have found only at Our Kitchen’s Paella Marinara.For only P995a group of 5 personscan relish this authentic savory dish! (Also available order for 10pax and 20pax)
