#ReadOutLoudChallenge

Sticky

As soon as I heard about the heart of the campaign, I immediately jumped in. Without batting an eyelash, no rehearsals whatsoever, I did the #ReadOutLoudChallenge.  I read so loud I forgot I had a lapel on and people would look even if I pronounced some words incorrectly. So what!  I did the #ReadOutLoudChallenge and will do it 75 times more so the chance of building a library for an indegenous community in the Philippines will become a reality. Yes, if there are 75 people who upload their own #ReadOutLoudChallenge on their Favebook or Instagram accounts that can be viewed publicly, National Bookstore will buildRead More →

end sexual exploitation of children

Sticky

When I heard the horrifying story behind the “Destruction of Daisy” I got weak in the knees, chills down my spine and tears ran down my face.  I asked myself how could a human do such harm to innocent children?  What could have drove the perpetrator and even his cohorts do such things and not feel remorse or fear? As a mom, I am glad the evil man behind it was caught but I am heartbroken because that guy never showed remorse.  His cohorts who buy his sh*t has not been caught either.  They will all just find new source of freaky inhumane entertainment for theirRead More →

Earthlinrgeous Oregon Trio #EarthintheUSAadventure

Sticky

Having been born and raised in the city, I am so used to the concrete jungle.  Everyday of my life all I see are concrete walls, pavements, streets.  So whenever I go to the countryside I am so childlike.  Eyes wide open and I take in everything I see like different kinds of trees, birds and landscapes like mountains and hills. It was such a breather that the second state I visited in the USA during my visit was Oregon.   One of the most popular coastal U.S. state  known for its diverse landscape of forests, mountains, farms and beaches!   This is what IRead More →

This entry is part 3 of 3 in the series #TourismMekong

My recent travel took me to Luang Prabang in Laos, a  place I have not included on my must-see places before. It’s not that it is not popular, it was just not one of the countries in my priority list.   It was a great opportunity to be invited by the Mekong Tourism for a multi-country familiarization tour. Mekong River crosses six (6) SouthEast Asian countries Laos included. For those who are not familiar with it, Luang Prabang, Laos is one of the declared UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1995. It kept the honor of the title for decades  they were able to preserve their originalRead More →

When thinking about places to visit in Thailand, the first places to come to mind , especially by most tourist would be Phuket and Bangkok. A very few, not even myself, would even think of going to Nan, Thailand have I not been invited by the Mekong Tourism Coordinating Council for a multi-country fam trip. Nan is a province of Thailand located at the northern side and near the border of Laos and very close to Luang Prabang.  The Thailand and Laos border via Nan is a 3 1/2 hour drive about 150 kms from the city.   If you plan to do multi-country/ cross country tripRead More →

I am lost for words. I had lots of fun that last , the #SuperWomenNights, Fitflop’s 10th Anniversary SouthEast Asian region celebration. The celebrstion was attended by Fitflop delegation from Thailand,Vietnam, Malaysia and Singapore.

They’re no longer just fitflops or thongs or sandlas but they now also cater to the “athleisure” lifestyle. You can see what I mean in this vlog I made or the night that was the #SuperWomenNights     WhyRead More →

what people prioritize over sleep

Recently I posted a sleep calculator on my Facebook to reassure myself that my daughter and my sleeping habits are fine. In the calculator it stressed that more than hours it is the time we sleep that matter most when it comes to knowing what time we should wake to feel refreshed more than anything else. Coincidentally , in celebration of World Sleep Day, Royal Philips (NYSE: PHG, AEX: PHIA) released its report, “Unfiltered Sleep: A Global Prioritization Puzzle,” which showcases the results of an international survey conducted online in February by Harris Poll on behalf of Philips. The survey looks at how 6,461 adultsRead More →
