Happy Halloween everyone! I must say that when you ask a Pinoy about a horror story, he would oblige to tell you one. In our country, every island has a ghost story, and SM Cinema, together with the Film Development Council of the Philippines (FDCP) bring you Sineng Pambansa Horror Plus Film Festival with not just one, but four spooky movies!

There are a lot of things that are essential in our lives, but did you know that what you drink and how many times you do it is the key to living healthy? While many of us think of only two elements as we go through our daily challenges in work or at home: food and fitness, we should also be aware of the right amount of these two elements should we go through to perform well.

Suppose you were walking in the mall, minding your own business when suddenly you hear screams as you see children trying to have their picture taken with a pony with a cowboy hat, horsing around in the aisle?

When my grandmother passed away when I was still in college, I was so devastated because she has long battled her Stage 4 cancer. It dawned to me that no matter how you think you prepared for someone to leave, it's not always the case. Few days after she bid goodbye, our family would be so stressed in finding a place for her remains. These days, it's now comforting to know that there is a place where you'll have peace of mind during times like these.
Preparing for a final rest is not easy, and Aeternum, located at the heart of Heritage Park Area 2 of Fort Bonifacio Taguig City changes all that. It boasts of its grandiose and inviting facilities such lush greenery, manmade lagoon and waterfalls, the viewing chapel where funeral services take place and the peaceful columbarium.
While it is true that the air we breathe outsider our home is largely out of our control, we cannot say the same thing about indoor air. We spend the majority of our time indoors, and yet we rarely think twice about the air we breathe inside. Indoor air quality is just as crucial to our wellbeing as any other environmental factors. The accumulation of dust, molds, and other gases that are emitted by everyday household activities can lead to poor indoor air quality – and you may not even be aware of it. As a result, you or those living with you can suffer ailments such as headaches, eye irritation, allergies and respiratory diseases.

I can't wait to go to Cebu! It's few more days left and I'm finally going to this beautiful place.
Even if I have been to Iloilo a lot of times, it's going to be my first time in Cebu. Some would say that its a less stressful version of Manila, but I guess I have to get there to find out.
It's given that I go to their beautiful beaches. Of course, I have to check out the dried mangoes, the danggit, Cebu's famous lechon and the sights.
I also promised myself that I would buy a guitar there. Cebu is known for its beautiful sounds. I believe that this island is like a muscians friend.
Food, music, sights, CHECK! I am really excited for this trip to happen. This is me realizing my mantra this year that I should discover what's out there. Good night friends, share your Cebu tips with me okay? :)

I’ve always been an advocate of having beautiful hair. That’s why I was so excited when Toni and Guy invited me during the the A/W 2014 hair trends at an exclusive pop-up hair trunk show hosted by the Collab Contessa, Dara Roa, and held at the very popular Todd English food hall at SM Aura Premier. The brand partnered up with Toni & Guy Essensuals Salon and we all had an inter-active program that involved getting our hair styled in the latest trends by the salon's top stylists.
I found something NIU and exciting! Before October started, my friend Claire told me that there's a budding restaurant at the 6th floor of SM Aura, and she thought it looks very elegant. It just so happened that I was invited to check out a certain "new and exciting" buffet in town, and it did not disappoint, NIU by Vikings is definitely the coolest restaurant you could ever be into.
One of the most important appliances in the house is the refrigerator.

I've been swamped with work lately, and I miss having a vacation. It's a good thing I have a boyfriend who loves spend his rest days with me and just hang out.
Last week, he suggested that we go to Red Box and have a videoke party by ourselves. You should know that I'm not a fan of Avid Duet and Quartet when it comes to videoke nights like that. I'm more of hogging the microphone kind of girl. But this time, I enjoyed our quality time together. Red Box even has packages during certain hours where you can spend your date singing the night away (or even during the afternoon) and their rates are really affordable.
Now I'm looking for other activities on which we can engage together, just so to keep things interesting. After all, it shouldn't always be sit down dinners or movies only, right?
How about you? How do you spend your date days to enrich your relationship with your partner? Hope you can suggest other activities that are fun and exciting.

Last night was a big shopping escapade, thanks to the golden ticket that came at my doorstep weeks ago. I've known about H&M during my friend's trip to HK and their stuff were just amazing that I can't believe I'm part of the red carpet VIP launch. So now, here's a peek to the much coveted shopping experience this year, H&M says Hello Manila!
I've been seeing cute babies this past weekend. I don't know, but I just love looking at them. If I'd ever have a baby girl in the future, she will surely be adored by the whole family. She'd wear too much pink, and will love books and music. But for now, my dolls are my babies, and I've got a whole bunch of them. You see, everytime I buy dolls, I'd envision to give them to my future baby girl. Yes, I'm forward thinking that way.

Years ago, I dreamt of being an investigative journalist. Too bad my parents thought I was too soft for that kind of profession. That's why I was so excited when Sony Channel invited us to the special screening of Shonda Rhime and Betsy Beers’ “How to Get Away With Murder” which airs tonight, October 15, at 9:05 PM. With this show, I can try to be a detective.

LG Electronics (LG) has just introduced in the Philippines the L Fino and the L60 smartphones, the latest additions to its budget-friendly mid-range L series mobile devices.
A compelling alternative to higher-priced smartphones, the L ‘Fino’, the Spanish word for ‘fine,’ is made more powerful and now boasts of a more premium look and feel that are sure to attract teenagers and first-time smartphone users.
I am one of the few people who could not cook to save his life. Yes, I may know how to prepare breakfast and fry stuff but it's just because I am used to buying take-out and ready-made meals. That's why I was so excited when Midea invited me to the media launch of their latest kitchen appliance line - A New Wave of Cooking - because we were taught to prepare easy to do meals for the busy people like myself, with the use of their newest cooking innovation.

9 years and counting. Since 2007, Belle de Jour Power Planner helps us girls be empowered, organized and to live life to the fullest. Viviamo Inc. turns 9 this 2015 and I'm glad to share their awesome news, BDJ Fair is set on October 19 at the SM MOA Music Hall!
2010 – Months after the opening of Forever 21 at SM Megamall, I was asked to pull out clothes for a fashion show/event. I was in awe. California’s fast-fashion line is like heaven for me because they have the trendiest clothing line for every age. I remember that girls camped outside the store when it opened here in the Philippines, and the crowd went in and out for weeks, making it an international retail fashion market.
The BER-months are here and the weather's all gloomy. But don't fret if you're having cold weather nights (or afternoon), because 7-Eleven's Hoodie Time is here!
October is World Sight Month. And since children are our future, Ideal Vision Center wants to play a big role in helping our parents take care of their kid's eyesight. Because childre are naturally curious about everything, having good eyesight is a must for them to grow holistically.

I've always loved how the sun touches my skin. However, many say that too much exposure from the sun can cause damage to the skin, with the threat of ultraviolet rays. And being very cautious, I'd just stay indoors. Sadly in that case, avoiding sun exposure might also lead to Vitamin D deficiency and increasing the risk of chronic illnesses such as cardiovascular diseases and certain types of cancer.

Once in a while, it feels good to give back to the community. That's why when Habitat for Humanity asked us bloggers to be Online Champions, I delightfully accepted to be part of the group. This year, I was even more excited to be part of something greater - The World Habitat Day - by building decent homes for Filipino families.
