 #makeITsafePH

The ubiquity of technology in our present time and space has yielded unprecedented and enormous advancements that have become a boon and a bane to many of us, especially our youth. Technology brought us ultra smart phones and developed internet platforms where information became so fluid that when shared can reach millions of people around the world in a split of a second.

In “Digital in 2018” report released by Hootsuite, a US-based social media management platform, it’s startling to note that Philippines has now 67 million internet users and all of these are active social media users. This pervasive use of internet has paved the way for the emergence of internet-related crimes such as rape, theft, bullying, coercion through sexting and piracy which made public private information whose victims are often our teens, our youth who are digitally vulnerable.

Researching Beauty Products Before Use

Researching Beauty Products Before Use

Many people suggest that any ingredient is harmful if it's difficult to pronounce, but most foods, hygiene, and beauty products containing synthetic chemicals are still considered to be safe. With that said, some people develop severe allergic reactions or symptoms after using certain makeups. It's important that you test your tolerance of certain products and research cosmetics before using them, even if the ingredients are listed as all-natural and appear safe.

Saying Goodbye and Hello to the Empowered Women of Park Inn Davao



A lunch gathering was arranged by Park Inn Davao for Davao media on April 10. For what I thought to be a launching of something delightful offering this summer turned out to be a despedida lunch for Ms. Patty Tan, the Marketing Manager of Park Inn Davao.

We were all surprised to know after the announcement that she’s leaving the hotel. The reason is very well-founded and I can truly relate – to become a fulltime mother. I also forego a lot of teaching and research grants back then in exchange of mamahood.

#AirAsiaInDavao: Overnight Sojourn in Idyllic Mati, Davao Oriental

Plumeria in Mati, Davao Oriental

Hello there!

As promised I’m sharing with you our short but sweet trip to Mati in Davao Oriental.

After the successful launch of AirAsia’s newest Santan meal, the Roasted Dalandan Chicken with Pimiento Sauce, which was held in Malagos Garden Resort, we were scheduled to leave for a familiarization tour to Mati in Davao Oriental the morning after. The fam tour was organized and sponsored by AirAsia. We will be travelling with bloggers and influencers from Davao, Manila, Cebu and Malaysia.

It’s been a while that I haven’t been to Mati. The irony of this circumstance is that, the nearer and more familiar you are to the place, the less significant your desire will be to explore it. Not because you don’t take pleasure in its beauty but because you would always think - it’s just within reach and you can at anytime drive to see it. And that’s the case relevant to this lazy woman, lol.

Marks & Spencer feature: Olive Puentespina, the cheesemaker’s life and style

Olive Puentespina, the cheesemaker’s life and style
On Olive. M&S Linen blouse.


Her cheesemaking story started in Year 2000 with three goats, Marvin, Jolina and Rica, the onset of Olive’s husband-veterinarian collection of ruminants. The number grew with each farm visit, and grew more as the goats bred. How does one earn from this hobby?

Olive bottled fresh goat’s milk to sell. It didn't click. Goat’s milk soap was out of the question since it used very little milk. How else can milk be preserved, asked the UPLB-graduate who worked at the university’s Dairy Training and Research Institute? Cheese. So started Olive Puentespina’s cheesemaking career.
