I always have this notion that we come full circle as a Christian during this year-end celebration called Christmas. Albeit the craziest season of the year with all these rushed year-end reports, decorating and lighting up trees, shopping here and there, people rushing to and fro – it’s also a season where we re-think of our priorities, share our time and extras to those who aren't feeling so well, especially children, cheer them up and make them feel loved and important. 

This year, we see this unfold as Waterfront Insular Hotel Davao shares its time and love with the children of the House of Hope Foundation as they celebrate the beginning of the wonderful season of the year by lighting up the tree and treating the recovering children to a night of fun, excitement and entertainment.

How To Get Your Home Ready For Winter

How To Get Your Home Ready For Winter

Winter can be a special time of the year as there is nothing better than getting home after a long day and wrapping up and getting cozy. The cold weather can take its toll during these months, so it is important that you get your home prepared for this season so that you have a comfy refuge where you can escape the harsh winter conditions. Fortunately, there are various ways that you can get your home ready for winter which can make a large amount of difference to how you feel and ensure that you are always able to escape the cold and enjoy nights in.

Get Heating System Checked

Everyone relies very heavily on their heating system during the winter months, so you need to make sure that it is in good working order and working as efficiently as it is designed to. It is worth getting a technician out to give the system a tune-up so that you do not encounter any issues in the middle of winter when you need it most.

Oh, how time fly so fast. It’s that time of the year again when anyone who believes in the true spirit of Christmas will splurge a lot and spread more love to everyone to make the celebration more fun and meaningful.

Park Inn by Radisson Davao just made this idea come alive as they light up the contemporary and funky Christmas Tree on Thursday. The hotel’s huge symbol of the season’s celebration is made up of framed photographs tucked around the Christmas tree. To me, it's a cherished walk down memory lane of what the hotel has accomplished and have become all these years. 

I’m so honored that in the five years that the hotel did the lighting ceremony, I’ve gone to the three of it. Thank you so much Park Inn Davao for trusting yours truly.

Roughly a month before Christmas, Ayala Land’s Seda Hotels hold a roadshow to showcase its growing and rapidly expanding brand in the country, The Seda Hotels. The Tinalak rooms at Seda Abreeza was filled with the hotel’s clients, bloggers and media friends joining in for a night of fun, surprises, 90s rhythm and blues.

Seda Hotels, known for its urban lifestyle concept and nurturing the service brand, “home of Filipino hospitality” has now 9 properties spread in key cities and ultimate destinations in the country.

I’m amazed at the hard work the people behind this brand has put in together as in just a matter of 6 six years they’ve rise up from the ranks and gained recognition - a five-time winner (2014-2018) as Philippines’ Leading Hotel Group given by a UK-based World Travel Awards.

Keep it personal. It gives your gift a special touch.

“Being a mom keeps me busy as I’m very hands on and at the same time, I enjoy spending time with my little boy, India. My five-year old keeps me entertained for sure,” said 41-year old Nikki Serrano-Honasan. 

Her yoga practice keeps her occupied as well. She starts each day on the mat, whether it’s ten minutes or two hours. Yoga & meditation keep her anchored wherever she is. This sets the tone & energy of the day as she goes about her mommy & teacher duties.

Hello there my dear readers!

It’s that season of the year again where shopping may not be obligatory but for me necessary. I’ve never come to think of Christmas season as a season of not buying something nice not only for myself for working hard the whole year through but also buying presents for anyone I care about worth sharing my blessings to.

But as we all know it, while shopping can be exciting, some say it’s a therapy even, it can also be tiring and draining at this time of the year. Not to mention that if we’re not wise enough to make smart choices will render us penniless by 2019. And we don’t want to start our new year broke, right?

Choosing a Hair Color for You

Choosing a Hair Color for You

Hair color comes in many forms. All hair dyes are not created equal. You should find one that is best suited for your hair type. There are many different coloring options available on the market.


If you want to add some color, you should consider a temporary dye. It will give you the chance to test out a new shade. You can experiment and see which one is right for you. Some people use this to put an unusual color in their hair. The color can be quickly removed with a shampoo and wash.

Learning how to Unlearn

Of Buddhist Boot Camp and my latest acrylic artwork 
in acrylic paper I called 'Courage'

I happen to stumble upon this book, Buddhist Boot Camp written by Timber Hawkeye. I won’t instigate debate on morals vs. Religion ... I just want a peaceful life that’s attune and with spiritual respect to nature.

I love how the author shortened every readings, so adoptive of fast-pace culture we are in today.

I’d like to share a page he titled ‘Unlearn’;
