Adi Amor at the Skin Station Grand Opening

A proper skin care routine is one of the fundamentals of beauty. The best way to keep your skin beautiful and healthy is to come up with a skin care routine that works for you. You can try out different products to see what works for you or you can consult with an expert. When in the market for a skin care expert, one of the local clinics I always consider is one that utilizes science to give customers the best value in skin and body solutions—SkinStation.

People spend the first half of their lives trying to fit in and the second half trying to stand out. You may not realize it right now but our lives somehow end up this way, one way or another. We grow up trying to be one thing then one day we just go in the completely opposite direction. There’s no explanation for it, it just happens naturally. By now, you’re probably wondering where I’m getting all this. It’s just one of those things that have been in the corner of my mind that slowly worked its way up to the surface. One day, I just felt a bit of a shift in the way I saw things which spiralled into something unexpectedly life changing.

THE COURAGE OF “YAKAP”

September 27, 2016

Dolores Cheng, founder of the Center for Possibilites, giving her opening remarks

Acceptance is one of the hardest things for people to do but it is also one of the things that people ultimately need. People need to accept themselves for who they are and accept others for who they are. It’s so easy to say that you accept someone or something but to actually fully accept something entails understanding. In order to accept, you need to understand. That was the goal of the Center for Possibilities Foundation when they produced the “Yakap” film. They released the film to provide a medium in which people can understand what it’s like to be a person with special needs and what the people around them go through every single day.

Traveling is something everyone has to try at least once in their lifetime. You get to explore new places, discover new things and get a new perspective on all sorts of things. You end up learning so much more about the world and, of course, yourself. There’s nothing like taking yourself out of the everyday hustle to simply do whatever you want, wherever you want, and however you want it done.

Never underestimate the importance of Physical Fitness. In this day and age, it is so easy to fall into the whole lifestyle of having everything done with just a click of a button. The advancement of technology has made it easier for people to become couch potatoes instead of being up and about. Simple everyday errands like bank transactions, shopping, and even buying groceries can now be done in the comforts of your own home. It’s great news for the fast paced lives we lead but bad news for our bodies. It’s time to get back into shape and I’ve found the best place to do exactly that—Movement Performance Manila.

DOES THE SUIT MAKE THE MAN?

August 17, 2016

Sometimes, I wonder If dressing like a man will give me the authority that all men seem to acquire with no effort whatsoever on their part. By simply being men, they automatically get this dominance, like a superpower. No, I am not a feminist on a rampage. I’m just contemplating on the age-old question, “does the suit make the man?”

As an entrepreneur I’ve always had a soft spot for my fellow entrepreneurs, and It’s not just because we made the conscious life decision to brave the unknown world of running a business. I just love meeting them, talking to them, and just experiencing the passion that drives them every single day. I especially love getting their insight on just about any topic because it’s such a different take on things. I am all for supporting the dreams of entrepreneurs and so is the Chemworld Fragrance Factory!

THE GRAY AREA

Have you ever heard of the term “The Gray Area”? I first came across it when my friends were talking about a strange situation wherein there’s this guy and this girl who like each other, act like they like each other, but never admit to any of it. They’re apparently considered to be in the gray area. I even Googled the term, It’s actually a real thing—I checked. It made me wonder about what it’s like to be in this gray area situation. I mean, is it nice there? Do people even know they’re actually in the gray area? When people figure out that they’re in this limbo like space, do they try to get themselves out of it?

The Boon Tong Kee Imperial Sets

As a self proclaimed foodie, I am always on the lookout for awesome ways to make my little tummy happy. I especially love it when I can eat as much as I want without worrying about how much everything will cost. Buffets are the perfect eating set up for me but, of course, I can’t do that every single day. Well, maybe I can but that’s borderline gluttonous. I’ve recently discovered a meal that I can actually afford to eat every single day—the Imperial Sets of Boon Tong Kee.
