2017 READY Disaster Resilience Forum | Cebuana Lhuillier Stages Multi-stakeholder Disaster Resilience Forum

Are you ready when disasters strike? As for me, I realized I had done very little to prepare my family for big disasters, but I am committed to protecting my children from disaster and I would do anything I possibly can to help my kids feel safe and protected. I'm glad I was able to attend the 2017 READY Disaster Resilience Forum where I learned how to prepare for disasters from different organizations and government institutions.

Coming from the success of last year's first disaster resilience forum, Cebuana Lhuillier once again gathered stakeholders to push for disaster preparedness among Filipinos. With a mission to equip society's most vulnerable sectors against the onslaught of calamities, the nation's biggest names in disaster management, risk reduction, and post-disaster rehabilitation convened on August 9 at the Makati Shangri-La Hotel for the ‘2017 READY Disaster Resilience Forum – All Sectors In: Making Everyone Disaster-Resilient’.

In partnership with the Insurance Commission, the Climate Change Commission, and GIZ (Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit), the event was organized to serve as a platform to discuss measures on disaster resiliency for MSMEs, the agriculture sector, and high-risk communities. It is also a venue to educate the public about the role of microinsurance in disaster preparedness. The convenors and partners of this year's forum see microinsurance as a vital preparedness tool, which helps protect Filipinos from the harsh effects brought by calamities.

The Bittersweet Side of the Proposed Sugar-Sweetened Beverage Tax | The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

For the past few years, I have been obsessed with adulting. Read: grocery shopping. I'm wrestling with the reality of being a work-at-home mom and while being smart on a budget is a must, I'm certainly no expert at this "adulting" thing. I mean, is anyone really?

That being said, how do you budget in this day and age? Plus the fact that the implementation of House Bill 5636 could push the prices of sugar-sweetened beverages by 2 percent to as much as 140 percent. The present Duterte administration targets to implement this proposed tax in January 2018 and they intend to introduce a P10-per-liter tax on all sugary drinks.

8 Things I Love about Super 8 Grocery Warehouse | Super 8 Anniversary Pa-Grocery Hakot Plus Appliances Promo

I was invited to experience Super 8's 5-minute shopping challenge at Super 8 Grocery Warehouse in Pasong Tamo last Saturday. It was the most exciting and quickest shopping spree I've ever had in my life, because I usually spend 1-2 hours for grocery shopping. Actually, grocery shopping is my own version of cardio but that was certainly a HIIT. Sobrang intense! My cart was filled with daily necessities such as soap, shampoo, detergent, my baby's diaper and more. At the last minute countdown, a few packs of fudgee bars were even added to the mix. I had so much fun, I just had to share my experience and the good news to you, guys.

This year, Super 8, one of the leading grocery warehouse chains in the Philippines, celebrates its 11th anniversary. That said, exciting times are ahead for customers with all their amazing perks and blowout surprises!

Pinoy fans are in for a roller coaster ride of emotions as Raffy and April (Geronimo) take us through the intertwining of their polar opposite lives – living through a PR crisis with a cutthroat, career-driven over achiever while the other end of the spectrum is an honest, sincere, and idealistic girl who believes in the powers of the heart.
