Third Time's A Charm: 8th Robinsons' Fit & Fun Wellness Buddy Run

For the third time overall – and second year in a row – I joined the team spirit to take part in the 8th Robinsons' Fit & Fun Wellness Buddy Run. Thousands of keen runners and running enthusiasts, including CEOs and celebrities, ran in pairs for the 8th Robinsons Supermarket Fit & Fun Wellness Buddy Run held last July 5 at the Bonifacio Global City in Taguig. The overwhelming turnout is a testament to the consistently increasing number of health-conscious individuals actively seeking healthier lifestyles.

This race is one of those rare occasions that you can run with your best bud or loved one. My hubby had to work though, so I got to run it alongside Ellen, my gym buddy turned running buddy, instead of all by my lonesome.

A Visit to Pampers First Family Photo Shoot at Rockwell

There are photos printed and photo books made that are beautiful and gorgeous, and trust me, I still print most of our family pictures because I'm a photographer. I know the value of printed photos and the need to preserve wonderful moments in the best possible way. 

Moms are their baby's #1 fans, who usually take a gazillion photos of their baby's firsts. However, I know that at the end of our lifespan, only a couple hundred will ever have them printed and framed.


If it weren't for the fact that even in this digital age where everything can be uploaded and stored online, there’s no guarantee that those photos are perpetually available for viewing or downloading. Also, most of us are indeed guilty of having hundreds of  our baby's first milestones pictures stored or relegated to a forgotten desktop folder. That's why I feel very deeply about the need to print and preserve photos of my baby's first milestones because baby’s firsts are always precious.

"Sex Ed" Movie Will Hit Theaters on July 22

The student is now a teacher.

With his first major Hollywood appearance back in 1994, in a scene where he was waiting for his school bus, Haley Joel Osment was Forrest Junior, Tom Hank’s son in “Forrest Gump”. He was just five. And best known for his role as the freaky "I see dead people" kid in M. Night Shyamalan's 1999 thriller “The Sixth Sense”, Osment is returning to the big screen ... awkwardly that is.


In “Sex Ed”, the 27-year-old plays a guy named Eddie who lands his first teaching gig at an inner-city middle school. He soon finds that his highly pubescent pupils are receiving no form of sexual education.

ASUS Zenpower 10050mAh Power Bank Packs a Punch

What’s in my pocket? It's my new ASUS Zenpower 10050mAh Power Bank. :)


It's always good to have an extra power for my power hungry devices on the go. With the increasing number of Apps on mobile phones and with so many powerbanks that you can find in the stores left and right, finding the perfect one is just as important as finding the right outfit, especially if you don’t want to be carrying a super bulky one on a night out with friends, or probably with your date.


Asus has launched the world’s first credit card-sized power bank along with Asus Zenfone 2 smartphone series in the Philippine market recently. Check out the juicy details about this exciting event and my review of Asus Zenfone 2 in this post.

Now, let me tell you what's so special about this ASUS Zenpower power bank...

Secret unlocked. I've designed a small yet fun, fresh and functional study area for my daughter. Now, she's getting more and more excited to study and do her homework.
