What would you do if you discover someone who looks exactly like you? The reality of finding your doppelganger or a mirror image or yourself is the intriguing premise of the upcoming psychosexual thriller ENEMY, released by Solar Pictures.
Based on the novel “The Double” by José Saramago, ENEMY tells the story of a university lecturer named Adam (Jake Gyllenhaal) who is nearing the end of a relationship with his girlfriend Mary (Melanie Laurent). One night, while watching a film, Adam spots a minor actor who looks just like him. Consumed by the desire to meet his double, Adam tracks down Anthony (Jake Gyllenhaal), an actor living with his pregnant wife Helen (Sarah Gadon) and engages him in a complex and dangerous struggle.
Last 2012, I went to Bohol to see the sights, Chocolate Hills, the Panglao Beach and the tarsiers. And during my three day stay, I was in love with the place. I couldn't stop talking about how beautiful the province is. Unfortunately, its grandeur was broken when the earthquake struck the place. That's why I am supporting the TakBohol: Run for School this July 27, organized by the Tapo-Tapok Bol-Anon Inc., an organization of Boholanos based in Manila, in partnership with Habitat for Humanity Philippines. Join them as they gear up towards the race for a brighter future of the youth of Bohol. The fundraising marathon is expected to be one of the biggest gatherings of the Boholano community in Manila this year.

Movies and music – these are two of my favorite things. Years ago, these also helped me move on from a broken relationship. That’s why I can almost relate to Solar Picture’s Begin Again. Stars Keira Knightley, Mark Ruffalo and Adam Levine, this film about moving on and taking a leap of faith will definitely inspire you and more.

Last week, BDJ Box and Pixy held a make-up workshop and asked us to bring our make-up kits. I'm so happy because aside from Pixy products, I can use my own tools to keep up with the tutorials. Instead of bringing a make-up bag, I put my essentials at the Beabi bag organizer that was a gift from an officemate during Christmas. It was pink, has so many pockets, and I really organized my stuff well. So are you ready to see what's inside? Read on to find out.

A new study of over one million adult hospital cases conducted by leading health economists and supported by Abbott, found that oral nutrition supplements provided to patients during hospitalization are associated with significant reductions in length of stay and hospitalization cost. Additionally, the 30-day readmission risk was significantly reduced for patients with at least one known subsequent readmission.

|Can acupuncture really help?|
Alternative Medicines - When I was working for an HMO, we were always reminded that Acupunture and other alternative practices are not covered for those who wanted to avail of health cards. Last week, bloggers had the chance to meet Dr. Philip Nino Tan-Gatue, an acupuncturist, and made me change my mind about the practice and its benefits.
Pink and purple. Give me those colors and I'll buy it then and there. :) That's why when BDJ Box invited me to attend the Get Pixy-fied: A Kawaii Experience event, I said yes without hesitation. My favorite colors in one make-up line really excites me. And I was really in love with the sweetness of Pixy, so read on to know more on what happened during our workshop.

My hair is my crowning glory. And you know, it's always nice to see it straight and free flowing, for everyone to see. Lately, I've been contemplating if I need to have it rebond because it has been really frizzy at times. Good thing I've heard about Ahglow hair products and I'm trying it to see how it would help my hair achieve a natural straight.
Oishi events are always fun! And this year, it’s even more exciting as if celebrates its 40th Year. What started with Oishi Prawn Snack and Kirei, now is a company with a wide array of delightfully unique snacks and beverages for the whole family to take pleasure in. And just like this weekend, the Oishi Snacktacular, where you can create your own “O,Wow” Snack happened at the Glorietta 2 Activity Center.

Here we go, come with me, there’s a world out there that we should see.
Last week, Solaire Resort and Casino invited us with a little ticket that says, “Soar High with Solaire”. I love surprise events, because you keep on expecting good things ahead. And I know Solaire, teaming up with AirAsia wouldn’t disappoint, so I’m all giddy about what will happen that day.

The pharmaceutical business is one competitive world. You have to make sure that your products are effective and safe for your customers, while giving value for their money. Enter Ferring Pharmaceuticals, where it distinguishes itself from the rest by putting people ahead of profit.
Lately, I have been obsessed with nail art. My free times are spent watching Youtube how-to-DIY designs. One of my favorite video bloggers is Sara because aside from doing easy nail art designs, she makes her videos fun to watch. So when BDJ Box posted a sign up poster about nail art tutorial with Revlon on Facebook, I immediately sent an entry so I can be included in the workshop. I was even happier when they emailed me, inviting me to the event. I felt special, as if I had two invites :)
Acupuncture has long been associated with pins and needles which is why a lot of people balk at the thought of trying it. Many Filipinos are scared of the needle and having a few being poked at you to treat a sickness is not their idea of fun. Truth be told, most would choose to suffer through their illness than have some needles be stuck on them. Thankfully, Doc Philip Nino Tan-Gatue, an acupuncturist, is more than willing to shed light as to why Acupuncture is nothing to be afraid of.
