Twin Princess Gems At Manila Marriott Hotel

A huge thank you to Mitch Garcia and the rest of Marriott Hotel Marketing Team for having me in the Opening and Blessings of the jewelry store Twin Princess Gems at the West Wing of Manila Marriott Hotel last August 9.

As we all know Filipinos love jewelry even from the colonial period, it is also listed in the top 10 best gifts that you can give to your love ones and for sure no women will fall to the timeless beauty of any jewelry.



When you think of Jewelry carft, Twin Princess Gems has various type of jewelry from earings to anklets. Necklace with stones, gems and pearl are truly amazing. I was so lucky to witness their Grand Opening. The event was short and the jewelry enthusiast gathered together to see the latest collection of the store. They are hand crafted and of course a proudly Filipino made.



It was said that the Marriott Hotel branch was their second store and i heard that Twin Princess Gems will be giving discounts to all who check-in in Marriott Hotel for the month of August.


Eric Santos was also there and serenade the guest while there is someone who brought a pair of jewelry while the rest is enjoying the cocktails.



There was also a Chocolate Ring giveaways and I love the Pearl Necklace that Chef created. Look at them they are cute and really beautiful but edible. The owners are really nice and got my ring chocolate too bad it was already deformed when I get home because of traffic and heat outside when I left Marriott Hotel.


To learn more about the Twin Princess Gems, you can visit them at the West Wing of Manila Marriott Hotel and check out their jewelry collections.

Neuropathy Awareness For Good Health Through Nerve Therapy Trip

Have you ever felt something like numbness, muscle weakness, and pins and needles? If so, you are experiencing Neuropathy. Its actually the symptoms of nerve damage and most of us did not mind it and even it was often, most sufferers do not seek medical
advice.


So what exactly is Neuropathy?

Neuropathy, a disorder affecting nerves, which is experienced by many people in the Philippines. Despite this high frequency, many men and women who have it are not even aware of their condition. In fact, nerve health is not a topic that many people actually think about.

Sometimes they are often attributed to more mundane causes, such as fatigue or wrong sleeping position. While these symptoms can indeed be linked to such causes, it is undeniable that Neuropathy is a possible cause.

Such symptoms are often thought of as so inconsequential that sufferers do not seek medical advice. Frequently, sufferers report minor discomfort or irritation at their symptoms and tend to ignore their persistence.

Other possible symptoms of Neuropathy:

- Increased sensitivity to touch
- Sharp pains
- Extreme sensitivity to pain
- A burning feeling
- Reduced sensitivity to pain
- Loss of sensation, and
- Reduced sense of touch.

There are also a number of conditions in which nerve damage appears or can be a secondary complication. Causes and risk factors are multiple and include causes and conditions such as genetics (a family member suffers from Neuropathy), chronic diseases (like diabetes), environmental toxins (such as smoking), alcoholism, nutritional deficiencies (including B Vitamin deficiency), and even side effects of certain medications. This condition can be
idiopathic (have no known cause).



The Neuropathy Awareness

Merck Inc., the maker of Neurobion, understands just how serious and difficult nerve health issues can be, especially for the people who work hard every day to provide for the ones they care about. This holds true especially in the case of people who perform repetitive motions as part of their daily routine.

The act of daily commuting puts pressure on the hands and feet, and on the nerves. With the traffic and the sheer number of commuters out there, commuting conditions are far from ideal for nerves. Crowded vehicles, jostling for position in a full train, standing in a moving bus – these can all take their toll on nerves after some time.


This is why Merck came up with its Neuropathy Awareness Campaign. This is in line with the company’s WE100 corporate vision of helping humankind live longer, fuller lives of quality and good health, and is intended to educate Filipinos on Neuropathy, its causes and common symptoms, and ways to prevent it from happening.

The campaign brings the spotlight onto the everyday True Heroes, the men and women who work hard daily to take care of the people they care about.

As Merck Inc. have given the important role of they called True Heroes in their families, they undoubtedly deserve recognition and care. These are part of the Neuropathy Awareness Campaign, in which people are urged to take care of their nerves so they can continue their important roles. We need to take care of our nerves.

This comes amid the reality that, while damaged nerves repair naturally via regeneration, after a certain time (when approximately 50% or more of nerve tissue is damaged), the damage is permanent. This so-called “point of no return” makes early detection and diagnosis vital.

In line with Neuropathy Awareness Month, Neurobion decided to give these True Heroes a trip that they wouldn’t expect but most definitely deserve.


 “Neurobion wanted to do something that not only would spread awareness on nerve damage, but would also serve as a treat to those who are susceptible to it, and these are the working-class Filipinos.” 
Loy Juan Dy-Buncio, Neurobion Brand Manager

And with that, the Nerve Therapy Trip was born.

The Nerve Therapy Trip was launched recently and it will provide an upgraded bus ride that keeps passengers relaxed as they head to and from work. 

The Nerve Therapy Trip will also teach us how to take care of our nerves despite of our busy lives with the the help of Neuro Motion video or simply by doing a simple exercises that we can perform on the way to work or even at the office. The video will be played during the Nerve Therapy Trip.


To experience the Nerve Therapy Trip for yourself, look for the Neurobion buses on the Alabang-Navotas route and vice versa for 25 days beginning August 7. Take a ride to #LoveYourNerves!

Balancing The Motherhood And Your Child's Future

We all know that as a mother we never have breaks or should I say, we can not resign to the position that we have. As a mother we are all on call whenever our family needs us especially our kids.

I am a mother to Arnie Jet although I am also a mother to my niece and nephew. They grew up with my side and I also consider them as my kids upon they parents abandon them. I became responsible to all their needs.

Basically, as part of Tita-Mommy task and a full time mom to my kid. I have a lots of dilemma when it comes of thinking about their future. Of course one of which is their education. Though, I haven't stress out myself thinking what to do in the future. I never thought that I should start giving it a serious thoughts.


When I got the invites from Sun Life Philippines entitled "MOMS DAY OUT EVENT",  an event about self-care and money management, plus a stress-free day treat for Moms in Onsen Spa at I'm Hotel in Makati. I give it a go and I told my self that I need to attend this event.

It was a day of learning and stress-free experience for me. I was given a chance to understand the reality of motherhood while learning how to manage our family budget.


I learn a lot from one of the speaker, Ms. Michele Alignay about having a balanced motherhood. The additional 10 minutes more for myself is truly worth it and the "I deserved it!" is sometimes needed, not only me but also for all the mom's out there. 


Also, I've learned valuable lessons about how to take care of myself while prioritizing my kids' future. Ms. Mylene Segismundo tell us about How to Build an Educational Fund. It is basically investing for the future of our kids which aims to deal the high cost of college education in the country.

With that, I started to realized that what will happen next if a mom like me is not prepared for this. Luckily Sun Life makes us understand what we really needs and they are here to help.

There is also a short video and I'm sharing it here, check out below and let me know your thoughts in the comment area;



After the program, they call out the groups who will be going together for the pampering time. I would say that this is my "Me Time" and thank you Sun Life for the treat.



We headed to the Onsen Spa got our locker keys and robes to change. You can have iced cold or hot tea while waiting for your designated therapist. Each mom's who attend the event got their 60 mins. signature massage of Onsen Spa.


Afterwards, we went to the Bloom Restaurant to have our dinner. There are lots of food choices. From Asian to Western dishes. I love the Sushi and Dessert bar. You can have the package of massage and dinner for Php 1,500. 


We also take home some goodies from the sponsors and partners of Sun Life such as Working Mom Magazine, Celeteque, Belo Baby , Green Stevia Ph,  Theodore's Home Care, Messy Bessy, Sarah's Home Ph, Pascual Creamy Delight Youghurt,  Good Bag Ph, True Tea, Sunlife for the TWG teas.

It was indeed a wonder experience because I enjoyed every seconds that I stayed in there. 


There is another Sun Life Moms Day Out Experience this coming July 1 & 15 from 3pm-7:30pm at I’m Hotel in Makati Ave.

The event is FREE. If you are Moms with 7-year old and below, then you can register.
