Annebisyosa No Other Concert

Anne Curtis has evolved through the years from a teenage icon turned host, then became a recording artist and just recently, she became blockbuster actress for “No Other Woman” and now, she steps up to become a concert artist as she stages her first major concert on January 28, 2012 at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.

The concert title is inspired by her recent movie hit and is called: “Annebisyosa No Other Concert World Tour.” Her album turned platinum in a span of less than three months after release. The “Showtime” host was overwhelmed by the support given by the “madlang pipol” - as they fondly called the audience of this Kapamilya noontime show.



Anne developed her confidence to sing on stage because of the daily sample segments held in “Showtime.” It was her dream to have an album and also to have a concert, and it seems that all things are slowly unfolding.

American Artist produces an all-OPM hits album for Jose Mari Chan



Another milestone for Original Pilipino Music (OPM) is the American production of an album containing twelve hits of the timeless singer-songwriter Jose Mari Chan. The album is called The Manhattan Connection: The Songs of Jose Mari Chan.

It can be remembered that Chan’s hits were revived locally through the years and the most recent of which is that of Christian Bautista. The album earned quadruple platinum award in a span of few months after the release and that only means Filipinos really love the voice and the melody of no less than Jose Mari Chan.

The eternal hits like “Beautiful Girl,” “Constant Change,” “Can We Just Stop and Talk a While" and "Please Be Careful With My Heart" would always remind us of his mellow and soothing voice that he considers a gift from God. He even confessed in a recent interview that since the beginning of his career, he did not have a voice coach.

Stream content

Many of us are already enjoying lots of on-demand content from the internet,but that looks set to increase immeasurably in the next few years.

Protection at its best for your children and your own computers

Due to the advancements of new technology, gaining knowledge for youngsters has been made easy through the use of the internet. But at the back of this positive and beneficial innovation, children below 12 years old are prone to the influence of the negative and malicious contents in the World Wide Web.

These children of the vulnerable age cannot determine the difference between good and bad. You should remember that the internet has it all and any child can click and log-in to any available site.

Psychological studies have found that the images children see will remain in their minds and the child has high chances of imitating the act. Sad to note that some child offenders of this present time were influenced to commit inappropriate acts against other children by what they have seen in the sites they have logged-into a couple of times.

Classroom Audio Systems from Roemtech

Teachers have a difficulty when it comes to capturing the attention of students, all the more in sustaining it. According to recent studies, the typical students from high school and college do have an attention span of 10 to 15 minutes. This causes the students not to learn and gain knowledge for attending the class.

Among the reasons that a student gets distracted from listening to classroom lectures is the noise from the surroundings, both internal and external. If a student cannot hear clearly what the teacher says, a student might resort to do other things and end up, not focusing attention to the lesson. But a sure solution to this problem is the purchase of good equipment for classroom audio systems.

Roemtech, a lead company that designs and manufactures quality and efficient audio systems, suitable for your classroom audio needs such as plenum rated amplifiers, mini amps, and speakers. You can access the site at www.roemtech.com, and it showcases an array of equipment made available internationally through the internet.

Jay-z: New York Street Born Rapper



From the dark streets of New York, Shawn Corey Carte aka Jay-Z rose from the independent music rap music industry to the main stream back in 1996. The street rapper turned professional recording artist was never discouraged to pursue his dream despite the fact that he was raised only by his mother soon after his father left. He started his career in the alleys of the Big Apple together with his friends, but before that, he was involved in drug-peddling and street gang activities.

He treated each of his projects in a different manner and said that the best style is not really a style. Jay-z just went on by saying that he takes the form of water; in short, he takes any shape, takes any style as long as it suits his genre. This explains why his albums hit the billboard several times.

Garage del Parco, Continuing the Business Legacy and its Values

Parents through the ages have made it a must to leave a legacy to their children. Some hand down their wealth, money, fame and position in the society. To some it could be quality education, as the best inheritance for parents to pass on to their children. But more than the education, like any parent, Aldo Antonio wanted to pass on to his next generation, the business values of efficiency, competence and meticulousness in providing quality service to the customers of his simple car repair and selling shop way back in the 1960s in Milan, Italy.

A son who was entitled to a birthright never ignored the legacy and took on the challenge of continuing the legacy. He also went on a car selling and service enterprise. Alexander was next on the line and since his younger years, he already had in his mind that he would soon continue his father's business, but in his own way.

used cars for sale, Garage del Parco, cars
Because of the exposure to the business, he grew a passion for the cars. But before he modified the old workshop of his father, Alexander already had the love for the car dealership business. This led him to pursue an innovation and thus, www.Garagedelparco.com came into being as an online dealership site of used cars Milan (auto usate milano) which carried the same business values his father practiced in his old business, still in line with cars.

The site features used cars for sale (vendita auto usate) which are guaranteed to be in good condition. Interested buyers can go to the garage and inspect the car if ever it has a damage. The company practices complete transparency with regards to the transactions made between the buyer and vendor.

Worry not for the car's efficiency. The product has been fully checked and it is as good as new. The machine was given great priority as to the conditioning of the vehicle. Also, we dwell on the principle that the real soul of the car is on the inside, not the outside appearance. This justifies the reason why you should not have hesitate to buy used cars (compro auto usate).

Larry Martin - Pinoy Biggest Loser's Life-Changing Experience



Ex-policeman Larry Martin's motivation in joining Pinoy Biggest Loser reality show was mainly to get back to the service. But he acquired more than what he had expected. He wins the vie for the title by losing 101 lbs. from his weight of 255 pounds. Aside from that, he has gained self-confidence, got hold of new ways to live a healthier life and above all, he sees life now in a different way- a more positive look.

The 125 days coupled with life-changing experiences inside the camp made him and his other companions view life in a better way- away from the hurting judgments of the society who used to name them as pigs, abnormal, jumbo, and the like. But more than the hurt that they once felt, they wanted to avail of a longer life as it is an open truth that obesity lessens the life span of a person. As they get through the challenges, it is as if the Filipino audience also journeyed with them.

Levis

Levis is in the head of leading an American apparel firm, corporately known as Levi Strauss & Co., the forerunner in the denim jeans industry. It started its operations in 1869 when Levi Strauss arrived in San Francisco, California to open a merchandising store. Starting off with the release of overalls, it was only in the year 1920 when they started creating the Contemporary jeans. Marketing in more than sixty countries worldwide, Levis is indeed enormously rampaging sales charts at the top.

Levis, Levis Philippines
The youth of today clamps to its name associating them to one that is strong, modest and original. From the vast line of products, like jeans, shirts, shoes and so on, Levis continues to make skyrocketing sales. Accredited for its perfectly tailored jeans, Levis draws its inspiration from the people. How they live, what they do and how they progress. In each design that they create, they always try to incorporate the various desires and motivations of the wearer. Integrating these motivations with style is a different thing. In a world where people are stimulated by what they see, fashion is always a social orientation that can’t be missed.

So when a Levis model ramps up, one thing is definite only Levis can do that. Pioneering in authentic and stylish designs, Levis innovations are geared towards a hipper fashion. Where trending competitors tend to mark the market line, Levis is genuinely showing what it can offer. With something that is uniquely designed, uniquely different and outrageously stylish, Levis always never fail to give a good fight. So innovation is still a cup of tea going ahead with the plans and not looking back where we need to lead. As a symbol of an era and independence, Levis is a trademark that participates in the molding of the clothing history.

Girls Sweaters

Girls Sweaters, Outerwear, Aeropostale
Groups of young female adolescents love to look the same by wearing close to similar garments as a part of their fashion play. Though they want to achieve the identical look as a group with what they wear but still, each individual maintains the uniqueness as a person by picking the same type of clothes but with a different design and color.

Fashion for them is also a way of expressing the group's existence in a non-verbal manner. If one joins into the group's sense of fashion, it is a profound gesture suggesting that sense of belonging, which almost all individuals are in search.

But on the other hand, comfort jives with fashion. So, when these fashionable individuals go for a stroll inside the mall or go for a walk at the park during cold and windy afternoons, they would avail of the comfy feel and warmth that only girl sweaters can bring.

But looking for several kinds of high-quality and fashionable sweaters can be hard in local markets as business merchandisers often order a few number of stocks. This has not kept young girls from going with the trend as online stores have put a solution to their fashion concerns. Try looking at www.aeropostale.com, where a wide variety of girls sweaters are made available to complete a teenage girl's fashion package.

Hayden Kho and Vicky Belo's Wedding, All Set?

After the waves of struggle and tribulation, Hayden Kho and celebrity doctor Vicky Belo finally announces some details of their wedding set next year in America.

In retrospect, Hayden had been confronted by his sex scandal issue last 2009 which put him in hot water when actress Katrina Halili filed a case against him. The scenario even went worst when his license as a doctor was revoked by the Professional Regulations Commission.



The most recent of problems encountered by the controversial couple was the Quark Henares, Vicky's son from business ex-husband Atom Henares, uttered his disapproval on the engagement. He also posed a threat to Hayden if ever he causes hurt again to his mother and this attests his love for a mother. But gladly, before Quark left for further study to the States, all went well and fixed. Hayden also understood why Quark has said such statements.

Celebrity: Equal to Role Model? The Line Drawn between Expression(through the Arts) and Advocacy



Showbiz icons cannot escape criticisms and while they are still in the business, it is inevitable. Issues sometimes make or break their careers. Some even say that if you are talked about, you are assured of your continued existence in the arena.

Just recently, when Nora Aunor made her steps for her comeback to the show business, got some thumbs down from anti-smoking advocates. This was due to her vogue-like pose in the cover photo of YES Magazine with the superstar holding a cigar. She has captured the limelight yet in the wrong way as a Catholic priest commented. Philippine Medical Association (PMA) has also spoken their piece regarding artists to act as role models and not project bad values and vices, like the hazardous smoking.

The group has been disappointed for the act but I think this draws the line between art and advocacy. Though art could be an effective means for advocacy, still the freedom to express prevails, from which art is a perfect avenue to express. With this the magazine’s editor-in-chief defended the cover photo and pointed that it only depicts who Nora is as of the present: a free-spirited and more liberated artist as she breaks her silence on issues regarding her sexuality, her children and a lot more. But in the end, the editor attested full support to the no-smoking campaign. As of the latest, Nora also promised to quit her smoking in due time, as it has caused her health to breakdown and she confirmed to be one of the advocates for the smoke free Philippines campaign as soon as she quits.

Phil and Angel: Keeping Status a Secret?



The rumored couple Angel Locsin and Phil Younghusband (Azkals Team) had been seen together for months, in public. Even in the games Phil played outside the country, Angel never failed to give some moral support. The last time the rumored “in a relationship status” couple was spotted in a Magazine launching event held at The Peninsula Manila, they were not able to escape some speculations from the press people.

All the more the media was intrigued when Angel answered the questions in brief yet meaty answers on how their relationship was going. Prior to this event, Angel has already made a statement that they are more than friends but on the detail, she preferred not to elaborate, just kept on smiling and said that they are both happy with each other.

She also said that it could be more complicated to explain because people have different assumptions and understandings on how things go. Angel just in a more recent interview also mentioned “No anniversary date yet,” which connotes that the relationship has gone another step but still she uttered in defense that she could not define the status of the relationship she shares with the Azkals player.

It is highly required to keep functional and make stable the web connection, so that the server could be accessed anytime. 

But it could be a hassle when you chose a web site host which in the end failed your expectations. So better be more intricate in picking one and be sure it is effective.

Madayaw Davao, Madayaw Coca-Cola!

When it comes to festivals and merrymaking, Davao never falls far from the list of places to go to. The annual Kadayawan festival has been a phenomenon in itself, drawing crowds of people who want to see and experience how to party – the Davaoeno way.

If you stroll the main streets of the city and even wander as far as the immediate town outskirts and you will feel the boundless energy of everyone you meet. The people here are known for the warm hospitality, engaging smiles and the ongoing love affair with food. The ultimate foodie, Davaoenos have always been known to serve food regardless the occasion – birthdays, valentines, the holidays, job promotions, graduations….even the ‘just because’ days – because as you know the family is together a reason enough to celebrate. And where food and family is, Coca Cola can’t be far behind which we truly love from the start.

And as Davaoeno’s, we share the same values as Coca Cola – happiness, pure, simple and unadulterated. This sentiment is aptly covered in Buildex Pagales’ song, ‘Madayaw Davao’…’Lahi ra gyud kung magka uban uban. (Nothing beats togetherness.) See video below and lyrics after the jump (provided in English and Bisaya translation)


Incidentally, the famous Kadayawan festival of Davao takes its roots from the word dayaw which means that which is good, valuable, superior and beautiful. Nothing could be closer to the truth because Davao is known for its good and noble locals, impeccable and valuable principles, superior culture and way of living as well as the natural beauty of the land and the people themselves. That’s why our family has never moved to a new place because we really love it here and we always look forward the celebration of the King of Festival – Kadayawan.  

But don’t just read about the festival. Hop into a plane and mingle and join the revelry. The Davaoeno way always have a glass of ice cold Coca Colas with the local delicacy – the Durian or pair it up with their wide array of delicacies. This is just my favorite!

Now there’s something you don’t see everyday! Just like the song that was composed for the festival - ‘Madayaw Davao! ….Where my pride will always lie, where my love will never die.’ Singer Buildex’ words ring out with truth and sincerity.

So what are you waiting for? Visit Davao in time for the Kadayawan festival and see firsthand the how the locals party. Party hard the Davaoeno way – it’s that simple. Engage in the festivity and try the following activities:

Aug20, 8pm onwards – Buildex Pagales Live concert together with Evee (local Davaoeno  band)

Matt Dalio and The China Care Foundation

China Care Foundation, Matt Dallio
From an early age, Matt Dalio has walked a path in life that is a little different from the average person. While most teenagers are obsessed with videogames, cars, social media, or parties, Matt spent most of his time trying to help orphans on the other side of the world. It started when he was a young boy and he spent a year living abroad in China. He attended school there with the local children and was the only non-Chinese born student in the school. At first he was an outcast but the children soon befriended him and they all became friends. From this experience, he would grow up and never forget the compassion that his schoolmates showed him when he was the outsider.

Years later, while Matt Dalio was thinking of things he could do for his Eagle Scout project, he began to research how he could help Chinese children. He soon found out about the large number of orphans there. Because of the one child limit imposed on all Chinese families by the government, if a child is born with an abnormality or birth defect, it is common for the parents to simply abandon the child. Although many of these birth defects could be solved with a simple outpatient surgery. So many orphans in China have cases of a cleft lip, or clubbed foot.

More Than a Collar, Fun Stuff for Your Dog

A dog is more than simply a pet, it quickly becomes a member of the family. That is why many people look for various items for their dog to give as gifts and to make sure that they are as well dressed as anyone else in the household. There are several different options that are available to you, including dog collars, jackets and for the special occasion, dog costumes.


Dog Costume
The collar is something that every dog should have, as it gives you a way to quickly contain the dog if necessary and it holds vital information in many cases, such as vaccination information and contact information. You have many different options that are available for you, including jeweled collars, spiked dog collars and even the super collar, which is a collar with a built in leash. Choose one that is going to be comfortable for your pet while at the same time, providing it with a little bit of flair.

Dog jackets are ideal for certain types of breeds, particularly when the weather gets cold. If your dog tends to run a little bit cold in the winter time, he is going to appreciate having one of these items. You are going to need to judge for yourself, however, whether your dog is going to need to wear the jacket on a continual basis or if it is just going to wear it when it is outside. If you’re going to be taking it on and off frequently, make sure that you choose one that is not only fashionable, but is convenient for that purpose.

Advil Flash Mob

Market Market recently featured a short 10 minute skit about pain and what it does which I first saw the video from Lunch Break Blogger. It made me think a bit - pain may come and go but it doesn’t have to keep you down. It doesn’t have to be the boss of your life – dictating what you can and cannot do. It shouldn’t stand in the way of having a good time. It may come in the form of body pain, headache, toothache or even dysmenorrhea or what Advil people have creatively called: the League of Pain. Just like what you see on the Flash Mob video below. 


Any of these types of pain can be one of life’s unwelcome distractions. Just when you think you can plan smoothly or work non-stop, along comes this body pain. Instantly, you lose your concentration and your speed of thought becomes jagged. But there is a light at the end of the tunnel, so they say. With the EVIL that the League of Pain brings comes the GOOD that medicines can offer. 

There are now medicines to combat this kind of condition. Medicines in other forms can be ingested but take considerable time to work. This is where Tablet Man failed. Good intentions sometimes do not make the best the solutions. Thank goodness there’s Advil Liqui Gel. It’s a revolutionary new medicine in gel form that works fast! Pain sufferers can know kiss their agony goodbye. There is no need to wait in for Advil to take effect and save the day. With Advil Liqui Gel – the League of Pain becomes a thing of the past.

Mobile teaching program “Text2Teach” to expand in Visayas and Mindanao


Text2Teach
Signing the Memorandum of Agreement for Phase 4 of the Text2Teach program are (from L-R):  Nokia Corporation Directorfor Community Involvement Gregory Ephinston, Ayala Foundation Co-Vice Chairman Jaime Augusto Zobel de Ayala, DepEd Undersecretary Yolanda Quijano, and Globe President and CEO Ernest Cu


Innovative mobile teaching program Text2Teach is set to go nationwide as it targets 850 new public elementary schools in Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao for English, Math, and Science lessons beginning this year.

The plan was announced during the signing of the Memorandum of Agreement (MoA) for Phase 4 of the program. Signatories are Department of Education Undersecretary Yolanda Quijano, Ayala Foundation Co-Vice Chairman Jaime Augusto Zobel de Ayala, Nokia Director for Community Involvement Gregory Elphinston, and Globe President and CEO Ernest Cu.

The fourth phase, to be implemented starting July, will finally make the program available not only in Luzon but across the country as the proponents work to bring Text2Teach to Visayas and Mindanao and to upgrade the 205 satellite schools from the earlier phases. By the end of Phase 3 in August, the total number of Text2Teach-enabled schools will have reached 555, benefiting about 40,000 pupils, and almost 1,800 school heads, teachers and DepEd officials.

Text2Teach Phase 4 also marks the beginning of a stronger partnership with the local government units. DepEd regional offices will play a vital role in teachers training while LGUs will provide bigger counterpart funding for the program. Phase 4 also sees Pearson Foundation returning to the program as a key component in developing new downloadable educational materials for English, Science and Mathematics.

Since its Philippine launch in 2004, Text2Teachhas been aiding in improving the performance of students all over the country, particularly in the three basic subjects through downloadable educational videos using Nokia mobile phones and Globe internet connection.

Using the power of mobile technology, Grades 5 and 6 students can watch any of the almost 400 educational audio and video materials loaded in the Nokia N86 8MP phones and equipped with the Nokia Education Delivery (NED) application. NED allows teachers to download and easily access educational audios and videos on Math, Science and English specifically designed for the project, providing a highly effective visual aid for teachers. It also creates an interactive, student-focused learning environment in the classroom which makes the students eager to go to school.

Aside from the Nokia N86 8MP phone and educational videos, Text2Teach recipient schools also get a Globe SIM card provided with P150 worth of free pre-paid load monthly for one year, a 29-inch colored TV, 3-day teacher training and teachers guides.

Alma Abalos Fernandez, a teacher at Carael Elementary School in Dagupan City, pointed out that the effectiveness of the program is evident in helping students appreciate a complex subject like science.

“Before we had Text2Teach, I had to rely on my imagination. I gave a lot of examples and used a lot of visual aids to make sure they understand the subject. But with Text2Teach, there is a better appreciation of what is being discussed. You can also see that the students learn faster. Just show them the video and you capture their attention. The students also retain the lessons better because they can see actual images on the video. And we don’t have to spend much on visual aids anymore,” Fernandez related in the vernacular.

Aside from improved performance, Text2Teach also helps minimize student absenteeism since they are now excited to go to class and watch the videos.

Gap - A Brand of style, Comfort and Uniqueness

Donald G. Fisher and Doris F. Fisher established The Gap Inc. in 1969 mainly an all American clothing apparel and accessories retailer in the mainland of San Francisco, California. It has been reputed as the one of the major specialty retailer in the United States.

GAP Fashion, Gap

The name of the corporation is based on the market trend wherein most of its clienteles are the younger generation, hence the name Gap. When it was first settling in the market is sported the signature look, that is, the basic blue jeans and the plain white shirts. As did Levis, which had difficulty in going with the current trends in terms of innovation, Gap, though becoming a common word with the young generation, had a predicament on how to methodize the assortment of jeans and thus it came up with a strategy by selling and distributing their jeans in clothing outlets. With its strategy being successful, the discrepancy deficit with the innovation problem was surpassed enabling it to expand is line of products catering to all ages of clients.

Starting with its frontline jeans, Gap started revolutionizing by launching new brand names like banana republic and Old Navy. Banana republic was procured by gap only in 1983 as a small time retailer distributing clothing themed on safari designs. Old navy, on the other hand, was released to the public on 1994.

Gap has also its share of depression in its profit scheme due to the competition and slow turnover of sales so it tried go out of its unisex streamline and focused more in making lines exclusively for women placing more items available to the female gender and renovating stores to conform to it.

Their new line of jeans carries the slogan “Born to Fit” with jeans that has a gratifying fit to a comfortable and suits the body right.

A Spectacular Event – Scouting for Girls, Live at Epsom Downs

Nominated for Best British Single this year, Scouting for Girls, the unique British indie-pop band put together by three former school friends, has already secured its place in the music scene. In the six short years since they were formed, they have sold over one million albums and one-and-a- half million singles worldwide. Hits include ‘She’s So Lovely’ and ‘Heartbeat’, and their biggest hit to date, ‘This Ain’t a Love Song’ was number one in the UK charts last year. They are a force to be reckoned with, and are popular amongst many age groups for their unique sound and their professionalism.

Scouting for Girls have headlined at many an event, and performed internationally, too, and this year they can be seen, live, at the Epsom Live! Music Nights performance on Thursday 14th July. Judging by past performances it will be a sell-out event, following on from their successful UK Arena tour in April. No doubt their loyal fans, known as the Wolfcubs, will be hoping to secure as many tickets to this live event as they can.

Dress to Impress with Lacoste

Lacoste is an apparel dressing company of French origin. Its products ranges from clothing, leather merchandises, perfumes, footwear and its famous merchandise, tennis shirts. Together with Andre Gillier, the proprietor of the major producing knit wear products in France, Rene Lacoste formed La Chemise Lacoste. This company is the forerunner of the now famous ground-breaking tennis apparel which was originally designed by Lacoste himself. It is noteworthy to know that Rene Lacoste himself is a famous tennis player and an athletic fanatic. Dislike of the traditional tennis shirts is the reason why he re-invented tennis apparel.

Lacoste, Lacoste Fashion
The Lacoste Logo is a Crocodile and it stemmed from the wager he had with the captain of the French Davis Cup Team, whom promised him a crocodile casing suitcase if he won a bout that was the subject of the bet. It was a friend of Rene Lacoste in the name of Robert George, who sketched a crocodile that was used on the design on his blazer which he consistently displayed on court.

All the designs produced by Lacoste shows excellent hemmed designs and form defining top quality and durability. The fact that Lacoste products present itself with a considerable price is commensurate with the top of the line products. Found anywhere in the globe, Lacoste also made itself easily available to its customers via online websites making it available readily at your door. Selecting via online website is made easy by making all sizes and options available.

Today, Lacoste is heading towards innovation and change with its new fashion designer, Christophe Lemaire. He started revamping and controlling the clothing sketches and designs making Lacoste supremely controlling the commercial market. Transcending the common and traditional notion of commonality, Lacoste imprints itself by displaying simplicity is not simply a barren box of designs but continues line of authentic and original innovations.

Traveling

Coming from a poor family in the Philippines, we don't have the luxury of travelling. When it's holiday or no school, we would just stay home and play or if not find something that we could do to earn like my brothers would sell ice drop, “balot” or ride a “trisikad” (another mode of transportation using a bicycle or three-wheelers). So as much as I desire to travel we don't have any money to do that.

But when I started working, I've been able to realize some of my dreams already. Just like two years ago, my friends and I had our self drive holidays in our trip to Mati and Iloilo. And after 27 years also, I experienced my first airplane ride when I visited my high school alma mater in Cebu - an experience that I truly cherish. In fact, I still have the receipts and forms of the said travel. My mother saved hers too. 

USA, America, USAside from traveling here in our country, it is also my dream to travel abroad. And I wish to go and travel in Japan, France and also USA Tours. The said countries are just my favorites and I'm fascinated with these places.

- I want to go to Japan to see sakura (cherry blossoms), castles, temples, shrines and meet people behind the famous anime Naruto. I'm such a huge fan.

- I want to go to France to see  the Eiffel Tower. Paris is a city of lovers and it would definitely be great if I am with a special someone when I'll be there someday. Hehe.

And last but not the least I want to go to the US. It's just freakin' awesome to be in the most popular country in the world. Many people go there and Las Vegas Holidays would be my first stop. They say Las Vegas night life would blow your mind and I want to try it.

Amazing Brazilian Blow-out from Envy Me Salon

I have a curly hair. And for over 20 years, I never go out if I don't tie them. It's really "buhaghag" that's why I always apply an oil or gatsby. Because if I don't, I will just end up having a bad hair day and you know, people will only make fun of me by asking, "Mahangin ba sa labas?" (which means is it so windy outside that I have that hair). Hehehe...Funny but it's true.

But everything has changed when I tried the Brazilian Blow-out. My hair becomes manageable, frizz-free, smoother and shinier. (See before and after photo below) And for almost a month now, I am no longer wearing ponny tail. I've been going to the city, attending events and others with my hair untied and everytime my friends see the new look they are always at awe and they love it so much. Gone are the days that I will ALWAYS tie my hair. I'm already sick and tired of it! Thanks to Brazilian Blow-out and to Envy Me Salon for offering it first here in the Philippines.

I feel fab and it just boosts my confidence.

Another thing I love about this hair treatment is the fact that it gives a natural effect to your hair. As you can see in the photo, my hair looks naturally straight. It's not dry and it's healthier. And even after few weeks it still looks damn great with all the waves. No wonder that this is a Hollywood craze.

Uniforms

The uniforms you see that are worn by hospital personnel may be different from the ones made for policemen, teachers and other professionals. However, its purpose is no different from among them. Uniforms are primarily made to establish identity and to set yourself away from the usual crowd; medical uniforms would tell people that you work in the hospital, as teachers uniforms would give a child the impression that you are the authority inside the classroom.


To further distinguish the different personnel inside an institution, different uniforms may also be used. Inside the hospital for example, the nurse has to wear the prescribed hospital nurse uniform while the surgeon must wear the medical scrub pants and top.

There are a couple more purposes and advantages that uniforms bring to the society, aside from establishing identity. One, professionals are believed to perform better when wearing a uniform. The uniform helps establish the working ambience within the working area, thus, setting the minds of the employees that they are there to work. Second, uniforms help employees to save a lot of time and money. Having the same type of clothing to wear everyday for work actually lessens the time for a person to think about fashion and eventually saving him a few hundred bucks every month. Although uniforms have some disadvantages, the convenience it brings to people overrides its drawbacks.

The King's Speech




I haven’t watched this movie on the big screen nor on DVD but I heard a lot of good remarks about The King’s Speech from my friends.

Read synopsis below which I got from Tesco Entertainment website.
Following the scandalous abdication of his brother King Edward VIII, Bertie (Colin Firth) who has suffered from a debilitating speech impediment all his life, is suddenly crowned King George VI of the United Kingdom. With his country on the brink of war and in desperate need of a leader, his wife Elizabeth (Helena Bonham Carter) seeks out the help of eccentric speech therapist, Lionel Logue (Geoffrey Rush).Based on the inspirational true story of King George VI, The King's Speech follows the Royal Monarch's quest to find his voice.
