Keeping Your Liver Healthy

Sunday, May 31, 2020

It's times like these when you sit down and think about what's important, we all got a dose of reality that it is health.

How do we effectively take care of our physical health? Our well-being? How about digestive health? People have long forgot about how to take care od the liver where important proteins, vitamins, energy and minerals are stored and made. The thing also filters out harmful toxins from the body and if it gets compromised, it's going to take a toll on our body. One should take it more seriously.

A care package filled with gut loving products, it's time to take care of your liver and digestion!

What's good is, many of these severe liver diseases can be prevented or treated if it is detected early. We just need to act on it, supply necessary help so liver complications do not happen. 

We wouldn't want people to experience chronic fatigue, abdominal pain, jaundice, nausea, vomiting, loss of appetite or a tendency to get bruised easily. A proactive approach is caring for it which means living a healthy lifestyle, good diet and exercise.  These are things that would lessen the chance for it to happen.

To support efforts, some people take (Phospholipids) Essentiale® Forte P which contains purified EPL® (Essential Phospholipids). It is extracted from natural food made with precise technology from Germany. Essentiale is an over the counter treatment which makes it accessible and clinically proven to strengthen liver health by promoting the repairing function and regeneration of liver cells. Well hallelujah!

You can add it up with digestive healthcare solutions like (Bisacodyl) Dulcolax for constipation relief (we all go through that right?) (Hyoscine N-Butylbromide) Buscopan for stomach aches and abdominal cramps (oh you know these ladies!) and Erceflora Probibears for your child’s overall digestion instead of those sweetened drinks which stocks run out in the groceries. 

Last May 29, the whole world celebrated World Digestive Health Day (#WDHD2020) and companies like Sanofi invites you to help spread awareness on proper digestive health. Go show your support by sharing your stories on the internet while using the hashtag #LetsTalkAboutGutFeelings.

Good Things About the realme Band

Just got my hands on the new realme Band. 

It's the new fitness wristband released by realme just a couple of months ago. It's got a very attractive display, not too complicated to set up because it only has one function button. It gets synchronized with your phone so your vitals get checked, updated real time. Compared to a few fitness watches I've had, this one is very affordable. It also has several functions which you could compare to leading watch brands - and is quite easy to operate. It also automatically detects sports modes wether you're doing runs, cricket or yoga. It also measures your heart rate with its sensors, quite nice for those who would want to still stay active under weird days like what we have now.

I've often see this with active people, pretty much to pair and monitor progress. It gives you and idea how to manage physical activities which I also did at home. Here's a short unboxing video I made of the realme Band.

Straps come in different colors and the watch faces can be changed in 5 different designs. I chose the default one because it's already good looking especially since it's got a colored display.

It's also waterproof, can stay submerged for a little under 30 minutes. I've taken it to shower several times and it hasn't gone kaput with the batteries since charging it three days ago. It's pretty efficient, needs not much of cleaning because it gets gently wiped when I go out or workout and all sweaty LOL! Best of all, you can purchase it online, some in flash sales on Lazada so you get it cheaper than the usual price.

For practical runners, athletes that don't need complicated stuff, you can simply get one and use it as you please. It doesn't have to cost an arm and a leg to work. realme just gave you good options!


Last Day To Get Php 150 OFF On Your Phone Bills

Just a few days ago, I told you how to get 100 pesos off your PLDT bill and 50 pesos off your Smart Postpaid bill. I am here to let you know, that it is the last day to get your vouchers as a form of Balik Bayad when paying bills through PayMaya.  

All you had to do is pay for it through the app as cashless transactions are made easier with it and after that, you'll get a notification that you're getting a voucher in return. I have proven this myself by paying for my PLDT landline and Smart Postpaid plan recently, then got the vouchers a few minutes after that. I can use the funds for other things like food and supplies especially as ECQ is upon us.

It's even easy to claim a voucher on the app!

Don't say I didn't tell you about it, because this isn't the first time I'm writing about it. Ha! They're practically giving money and all you had to do is pay your bills conveniently. (Just follow the steps to qualify for it)

Who wouldn't want that to happen right?! 


Billie Eilish and Takashi Murakami for Uniqlo UT

Saturday, May 30, 2020

I love Billie Eilish. Let's get that out in the open. She's weird, she's different, and yes she's cool. Now among the brands that opened up shop after ECQ is UNIQLO, clothing is essential and I think it is apt for them to do so. Apart from servicing tons of people, they're coming out with a whole new collection specifically Billie Eilish and well known designer and artist Takashi Murakami.

For those who don't know, Takashi Murakami does artwork, paintings, sculptures, which usually imply influence of post wat Japanese culture. He also manages different artists and organizes huge art fairs in Tokyo and other Japanese prefectures.

The shirts of course look like Bille Eilish's staple clothes, a bit oversized, huge prints and in funky colors. If you wanna channel Billie as an artist, this would be the right way to go. 

I've seen it on the shelves in the mall but I didn't get photos of it. I was busy with the groceries but I'll go back a few days from now and get some for me. I like these a lot and wish I had a thinner profile. It would look better, but as long as you can carry it you'll be fine! 

Go cop a few in UNIQLO stores, they're open already!


Security Labels on Food Deliveries

Friday, May 29, 2020

During this ECQ, I've been ordering a lot of food from local businesses. Not just to help them but because I dread washing dishes, and yes, they're pretty good cooks. The packaging though has a lot to like about because it's either flimsy, or just plain fluff. The preparation, the deliveries themselves might be prone to tampering. A few of them have tapes on them, it gets a little rowdy on the motorcycle ride and chances are, you don't know how it gets to your home untouched.

I see some of them employ nice stickers like the SecureLabels from Dragonfly Printing Services. Now it doesn't cost much at all, about a peso on some of them which is measly for the peace of mind of the consumer. Apart from that, your home businesses would look very professional which is very important for branding  For those who would like to get some, you can get in touch with them at
02-8713-0168 | 02-8516-0182 or visit

Keeping your food safe is a good thing!


How Businesses Can Adapt With Payments

It's scary out there and yes, businesses have been taking the brunt out of the ECQ measures we are taking. Nothing bad about that but we need to know how we could lessen touching each other and make e-commerce faster and proficient, so why not adapt to mobile payment which makes money transfers, bank transactions easy.

Our friends from PayMaya just launched their new app called PayMaya Negosyo. After registering and a few verification steps, you can immediately accept cashless payments via PayMaya QR. At any point of the day, you can also transfer money to your account and audit would be a cinch. Now you can use the same features as your personal PayMaya account but properly made for your business, no need for mumbo jumbo anymore!

You can download the app via the Google Play Store, just search PayMaya Negosyo and it's there. This is perfect for GCQ conditions, stay safe peeps! 


How To Get 100 Pesos Off Your PLDT Bill

Friday, May 22, 2020

I don't know about you guys but I'm feeling a little down because of the big bills coming and I'm part of the statistic of now work, no pay. Well, I got a tip from a notification of my PayMaya app the other day saying I could save 100 pesos off of my PLDT bill and tried if it works. 

I paid the usual bill which costs a little over 1k, which is the amount they say you should pay on the app so you can get the Php 100 Balik Bayad according to the promo.

After paying, I got a text message confirming my payment then another one saying I received a voucher for the 100 peso to be returned to me.

I just went to the app (it must be updated to see the VOUCHER option) then claimed it. After a few seconds I already got the notification that I got it back. After seeing that offer, there were two more on the app indicating Php50 OFF if I pay for my Smart Postpaid and Sun bill. How can you not see the tons of savings just by paying through PayMaya?! Heck I got my money back hassle free, you've gotta try doing that now especially when times are hard.

Don't say I didn't tell you!


A Call for "Isang Laban"

Tuesday, May 19, 2020

The "Isang Batangan, Isang Laban" online campaign is a collective effort of like minded professionals who are from the province of Batangas. They are UP Batangan Alumni members from different backgrounds and industries (Media, Production, Film, Advertising, Engineering, Marketing and Healthcare). Bound by their socio-civic spiritedness since college days, these individuals made an initiative to drive Bayanihan and solidarity in this time of COVID19 (pamdemic) with the aim to create a meaningful crusade to give honor to their alma mater and community, and aide in the fight against this dreaded virus. They want to specifically help healthcare workers in Batangas and no distance can stop them from doing this even in the time of crisis.

Everything is digital and with this, they were able to produce an original video with the help of medical doctors from the province and narrate actual experience in the frontlines, so they too could ask for help to equip hospitals/medical facilities to battle this unseen enemy.

They also got Ryan Agoncillo (a native from Rosario, Batangas) and Kimpoy Feliciano (a known online personality) to join this call and showcase this original piece which unveils the spirit of Bayanihan. It also talks of compassion and unity. True to the spirit of Batanguenos, to be brave in every fight, they call for One Batangas (Isang Batangan), One Fight (Isang Laban).

Video Conferencing and Education Solutions from Taiwan Excellence

Wednesday, May 13, 2020

Taiwan has been undoubtedly a super power in the technology sector. They are one of the countries that has given solutions aimed at supporting remote work and study technologies. This has proven very useful now that COVID19 happened and everyone had to stay at home.

For those who don't know, Taiwan Excellence is the international promotional campaign of the Bureau of Foreign Trade and Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA). They recently introduced a suite of Remote Video Conferencing solutions. In a recent livestream press conference, TAITRA showcased several of these from Taiwan. All of which can address the need for Remote Video Conferencing which can be used either for work or education.

This is no surprise as Taiwan’s strong ICT technology and hunger for innovation has already impressed a lot of countries including the Philippines. Taiwanese brands have made their mark in being part of the new norm as we all find new ways to do work and learning.

Simon Wang, the Executive Vice President of TAITRA says "Due to the pandemic, a lot of people have lost mobility, the ability to travel anywhere. This also hampers physical contact with people, no more shaking hands,  meetings and conferences. People had to do it at the comforts of their own homes, to spend more time online, relying on information security to ensure communication over the internet remains safe. This is why Taiwan Excellence, which likens the Oscars of the US for the best in movies, is a symbol of the best products selected by the Taiwanese government. For quality but reasonably priced networking solutions, Taiwan, specifically Taiwan Excellence products, are in position to fill that need."

At the virtual press conference, 4 Taiwanese brands showcased their products aimed to enhance the quality and utility of remote communication.


CyberLink has “U Communication Suite” designed for business communication. It has fully integrated service for online meetings, presentations and even business chat. The app features ease of use on any device, complete organization management for administration to keep track of key metrics. It also has internationally recognized “Information Security Certification” and video quality backed by AI technology.  The "U Meeting" function in this suite was also selected as the Best video conferencing software in 2020 by


AVer has this "Mechanical Arm Wireless Interactive Visualizer". It is ultra-lightweight and convenient for educators to carry. Equipped with a 4K 13-megapixel camera that can do 60fps imaging, it can present teaching materials without missing any of the finer details. It also functions as a network camera which can be used to  facilitate remote teaching. It also has won awards such as the Taiwan Excellence Gold Award for Good Design and Best of Show at ISTE last year.



The groundbreaking DeltaKnEW Academy is an innovative and open platform for Smart Learning. This has patented learning experience design to equip professionals and enterprises with the latest Industry 4.0 skills. It comes with a web version and mobile app which enables on-the-job, in the moment and on-the-go learning. Professionals can use this very versatile and personalized platform for learning so they could start re-skilling and upskilling.


BXB's very own “Q.con Video Conferencing Solution” helps to improve the quality of video conferencing. Its lens can auto-track and provide close-ups of participants to show the facial expressions of speakers, providing the personal touch so often missing from online meetings. Its built-in cardioid microphone can also auto-detect the voice of speakers and block out background noises to ensure the highest of sound quality. Moreover, Q.con supports various platforms such as U meeting, Skype, Good Meets, Microsoft Teams, ZOOM and LINE, among others. 

Top products meant for the most discerning customers in the world is now available in the Philippines. I am so glad Taiwan is such a nice ICT product source, they've been very good quality wise.


Love Her with PayMaya This Mother's Day

Sunday, May 10, 2020

Small things matter.

Mother's day celebrations are still in full swing but I'm sure with the current lockdowns in Metro Manila you're still thinking of ways to celebrate it with the most precious woman in your life, your Mom.

PayMaya has proven useful especially when we are shying away from using cash in establishments - now that we don't want to spread the virus, I used it to pay for small things that would make my own Mama happy. PayMaya is a partner of Mercury Drug so for her maintenance medicine and small groceries, you can use it in their counters without whipping out cards and stuff. The app has a QR code option that's being accepted in their branches. You can get cashback too.

You can also use PayMaya in restaurants. I ordered lunch and paid for it in advanced so Mom can get rest from cooking the whole day. You too can do small things to make Mother's Day memorable. 


Beko Pilipinas Supports Charity Efforts in the Country

Sunday, May 03, 2020

Beko Pilipinas, the Philippine subsidiary of Europe’s No. 1 home appliances brand, has teamed up with local government units, hard-hit hospitals, as well as actress Angel Locsin’s through her efforts called #UniTentWeStand, to donate appliances which our frontliners can use during the COVID-19 crisis. For those who don’t know, Beko is Europe’s No. 1 home appliances brand and since it matters, they got Washing Machines, Refrigerators and Beko Cookmaster units so they can cook a lot of things in one go. Their wash units employ Hygiene+ technology so no germs and bacteria would stick to clothes they wear and also, they’ve got EverFresh+ tech on their fridges so everything stays the same as they picked produce from the farm.

It’s a good thing they’re helping a lot of communities now that the world has been changed by the dreaded virus. We need all the help we can get!
