We really love the 90's!

During my early years in secondary, I'm listening to their The Cranberries' hits! "Zombie" and "Linger" became my morning anthem before going to school. Sounds cool huh? But not to mention that I'm just listening to FM stations.

I wasn't able to get a copy of their first album because I'm just a kid. It doesn't stop me for doing such crazy things as a teenager. One time, I searched for a blank cassette tape to "catch" the opening tune of Ode to My Family. But the thing is, DJs talk a lot and commercials really cuts the excitement. But to cut the story short, I own their debut "Everybody Else Is Doing It, So
Why Can't We?" and their second "No Need to Argue" cassette tape albums. It coined the famous songs like "Ode to My Family", "Zombie" and "I Can't Be With You".

One of the albums why I love the 90's.

Who are they?

Dolores O'Riordan – vocals, keyboardist, lead and acoustic guitar
Noel Hogan – lead and rhythm guitar
Michael Hogan – bassist, keyboardist, backing vocals
Fergal Lawler – drummer and percussionist

And now, they are back in Manila!

Are you ready for The Cranberries in Manila?

I am a Phiten user for almost one year and a half and my first is Rakuwa Neck Sport 3 Line. But at first, I hesitate to wear it because of negative write ups about this body enhancing accessories.

A gift of nature should not be ignored. One of them is readily available from our local stores and kiosks. What is this gift? It is the Aqua-Titanium®.

What is Aqua-Titanium®

Aqua-Titanium® is based upon Phiten technology for making hydro-colloidal metal. Traditionally, titanium is a lightweight and insoluble metal used in medical devices due to its non-corrosive and hypoallergenic properties. However, titanium in its solid state is not suitable for high-intensity, exercise-specific applications; this fact led Phiten to develop Aqua-Titanium®

Aqua-Titanium® is utilized as a dye and embedded into Phiten fabric products such as necklaces and bracelets,shirts, socks, supporters and other accessory and apparel products by permeating individual strands of fiber and becoming a component of the finished product. (from

But as for my experience, Phiten products needs not any introduction. Why? After wearing it for a long time and create an active lifestyle, Phiten really helped a lot.

After a long jogging and running, our muscles tend to become stiff and swollen. Every movement involving lower limbs becomes a Herculean task. For new runners, it is but natural but for elite runners, pain is just a small tweeking of the body.

Accessorizing - More Fun In The Philippines!
Wearing Phiten improves my recovery period. A testimonial from a user who spends weekends running and jogging around the oval and also, doing all household chores. I usually take miles before I stop. But stopping means a lot to me. After a non-stop jogging, my muscle feels the usual pain others also experience.

But do we have to rely on them? NO. But why do I keep on using them? Because my lifestyle needs Aqua Titanium's benefits. If your lifestyle is just a lucrative and inactive lifestyle, Phiten will not work on you for sure.

Here's my collection of Phiten Products + my GC.

Maligayang Kaarawan!
Alay kay Nanay - 
"Salamat Nanay." 

Mga salitang aking binigkas kasabay ng malakas na palakpak. Ito ang eksena sa isa sa mahalagang araw sa aking buhay, ang aking panunumpa bilang Rehistradong Inhinyero Elektrikal.

Lagpas isang dekada na noong maghiwalay ang aking Tatay at Nanay. Pinili ko ang makapiling ang aking Tatay.


Inisip ko na sumama sa taong may kapasidad upang ako'y mapagtapos sa pag-aaral. Nawalay ako sa piling ng aking Ina.

Nagsikap akong tumayo sa sitwasyong naipit ako at palagi kong hinahanap ang kalinga ng aking Nanay. Nahirapan ako sa gawaing-bahay sa umpisa. Noon, hindi ako ang umiintindi nito ngunit tumutulong ako kay Nanay paminsan-minsan. Tuwing nagkikita kami ni Nanay, nakikinig ako sa lahat ng kaniyang payo, maging sa bahay o sa buhay man. Sa mga ganitong pagkakataon, nadarama ko ang salitang sinasabi niya sa akin sa telepono, ang salitang pag-ibig.

Abot mo ang mundo.

Huminto ako sa aking pangarap.

Mahirap sa umpisa... ang bumagay sa ganitong sitwasyon.

"Iba pala kapag wala si Nanay."

Nag-aaral ako at gumagawa sa bahay. Hinihibog ang aking pagkatao sa mga salitang nagsasabi sa akin na magsikap at magpakatatag. Noon kasi ay hindi ganoon ang sitwasyon.

Ang simula...

Hindi lamang dapat maging ganito ang aking kalagayan. Pinili kong ipagpatuloy ang aking pag-aaral. Dahil sa naging kasanayan na ang mga habilin ni Nanay, naging magaan ang mga simpleng responsibilidad sa bahay. Pinanghawakan ko ang kabutihan at ang ibubunga nito sa aking kinabukasan.

Ang Tulong...

Naging mas madalas ang pagkikita namin ni Nanay. Tuwing nagkikita kami, sinusulit namin ang araw at hinihilom nito ang sugat, pinapatibay at pinapatatag ang lubid bilang mag-ina. May masaya at malungkot na pangyayari na aming napag-uusapan na humubog sa aming pagkatao.


Uwian na!
Limang taon ng pagsisikap sa tulong at malayong paggabay ni Nanay, nakatapos ako bilang Inhinyero Elektrikal. Hindi man maganda ang aking naging grado, pinilit kong maging mabuting ehemplo sa aking mga naging kamag-aral. Sa palaging paggabay ni Nanay, nag-alab sa aking puso na huwag gumuho ang kaniyang tiwala sa akin.


Matapos ang ilang buwan, nakapasa ako sa pagsusulit para maging Rehistradong Inhinyero Elektrikal. Higit sa pinakamaligaya sa aming pamilya pangalawa sa akin ay si Nanay. Inabangan niya sa pambansang lathalain ang aking pangalan.


Dumating ang araw na hinihintay ng aking pamilya. Kasama ko ang aking mahal na Nanay at katipan noong maganap ang aking panunumpa. Nasabi ko sa aking sarili,

"May plake na ang aking Nanay!"

Habang nagtatalumpati ang panauhing pandangal na si Kgg. Sen. Franklin Drilon, inanyayahan niyang tumayo ang mga magulang at mga pumatnubay sa mga nanunumpang inhinyero.

"Salamat Nanay." ang salitang aking binigkas kasabay ng malakas na palakpak. Noong pagkakataong iyon, nais kong lumuha ngunit napigilan ako ng pagkakataon dahil ito ay araw para sa kaniya, kay Nanay.

Si Nanay ang bayani ng buhay ko hindi lang sa loob ng aming tahanan, pati ang "literal" na labas ng tahanan.

Ako, si Nanay, at si Jaziel.

At pauna na rin itong pasasalamat sa Dios dahil sa pagbibigay Niya ng isa pang taon upang maramdaman namin ang kaniyang pagmamahal. Maligayang Kaarawan sa ika-24 ng Marso!

Ang blog na ito ay ang aking opisyal na piyesa para sa Greatness Starts @Home Blogging Contest mula sa Globe Tattoo.

The Soya Escapade Experience from Soyami at Tourne. The Awarding of the winner for the best Soya Goodness in Every Munch happened last January 25, 2012.

The event was hosted by Mark Nelson and with gorgeous Apple Morales. The successful event was organized by Soyami Team.

Mr. Mark Nelson and Ms. Apple Morales with the Soyami Team
Chef Sandra Hataway of Tourne discussed about SLOW Food, an organization which caters and promote local, organic, and seasonal ingredients for our daily diet.

Ms. Apple, Chef Sandra Hataway, and Mr. Mark
Rensy Magsino, our guest dietitian tackled the value of being fit and healthy. She quote "Food is energy and not fat." which means that we must burn what we eat.

Other sponsors like Treehugger World and Haribon Foundation also participated and do their share with environmental awareness. While FaceOne introduced the newest technology in our country in facial and skin care. And it is about the Swiss formula Stem Cell technology. Using a stem cell from a rare apple, Uttwiler spattlauber rich in epigenetic factors which guarantee the longevity of skin cells. For more information, visit or like FaceOne fan page.

Tourne by Chef Sandra Hataway served delicious meal, all inspired with Soyami. I ate small servings of each dish because I have a small appetite even I'm big. I'm really surprised! The fact that Soya healthy chips can turn a Tourne upside down. A real signature dish made with love.

The night doesn't end without awarding winners of the contest. Paige San Juan, Melanie Cortez-Abuel, and Richard Mamuyac won the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place respectively.

Soyami team will launch a new contest. It will be all about cooking and the details will be up soon. So always watch out for it.

Hedgren Philippines, a brand catered by Primer Group of Companies offers wide range of casual and travel bags. You can meet them inside The Travel Club and BratPack stores.

Actually, I was marveled when I first saw different styles drenched with bright and fashionable colours. Very tempting designs and wide-range of designs to choose from. I love the adorable and cute cubic Hedgren keychain attached to every styles which vary in sizes depending on the volume of each design.

Hedgren authentic bags are made of sturdy materials crafted with ingenious functions.  These are the best qualities which I became an enthusiast. I may say that some of their designs are unisex and some are really intended for women.

But NOW, here it is. A brand new Ohnicio from OH Collection bag from their behalf. A special gift from their recently concluded giveaway. And truly,

Life starts with the happiest hue on Earth.

Due to the immeasurable technology brought by the needs of every person, almost all things to make our life simple are being invented. Harmful effects are natural but needs to minimized or at most, eliminated.

Radio-frequency waves or RF and ultraviolet or UV rays are one of the causes of various types of cancer. Due to ozone depletion, our exposure to these harmful rays greatly contributes to our life. Using our "digital extensions" or our techie devices, it releases small amount of radiation and radio frequency. In the long run, it accelerates the oxidation of our cells. Our body is being bombarded continuously by this harmful emission and generates a cancer cell that rapidly attacks healthy cells. Actually, researchers and scientists conducts large scale study that will link radiation emitted by mobile devices and other gadgets. Studies shows that there is limited amount of radiation but will not completely connects cancer and radiation but long exposure to radiations like gamma rays, ultra-violet rays, and x-rays causes cancer.

As an engineer, I want to invent accessory/accessories that will permanently eliminate and protect us from ultraviolet rays, radiation, and radio frequency completely. It will be in a form of special casing or protective device of any gadget that will completely eradicate the harmful effects of using our gadgets and protective equipment for personnel who are exposed to these environments.

The accessory will be made of specially designed and organic materials like dried coconut shells and bamboo resins. The dried coconut shells will be pulverized and undergo process of purifying the material to meet the property of suppressing minute amounts of harmful radiation. The bamboo resin will be added to complete the setup. The mixture of processed mixture of compressed coconut shells and bamboo resin will be poured inside prefabricated patterns to form different kinds of accessories.

The product will serve as a pilot invention for other large-scale models. For new buildings and other construction, it will protect the whole structure from any amount of harmful radiation. For medical use, it will insulate the x-ray room to prevent the harmful radiation from escaping the room and affecting the medical technicians. And also, complete personal protective equipment (PPE) for engineers and workers inside a nuclear power plants.

We know that COCONUT TREE is coined as “the tree of life.” Extensive research must be conducted to study the other potential benefits of coconut tree.

This is my official entry to "What do you like to be invented?" from The Intersections and Beyond. Visit the contest page to know more about the contest and big prizes.
