Avail It Online

I guess I have to say here that taking care of one's health is really good. But of course if you want to try some things, you can do so but just make sure you do it moderately. I knew some people who drink or smoke occasionally and they don't abuse it so I guess that's alright. But if you want to try best cigars, you can find that online. In fact, one site is currently on sale and you can also avail some of their free stuff. You can visit their site for more information.

Pinked Tea Afternoon With Thrive Cdo and Spruce

I've been a Facebook member of Thrive Cdo ever since it started less than a year ago, but I never got the chance to join any of their activities. So finally, last Saturday afternoon of March 23, 2013, I was able to join a forum entitled Pinked Tea, which was conducted by Thrive Cdo in partnership with Spruce; the event was hosted by Margie Velasquez of ABS-CBN. 
Thrive Cdo is a non-profit organization which aims to promote breast cancer awareness. Ms. Karen Lluch, President of Thrive and a long-time friend of mine, was the one who conducted the forum. During her talk, she mentioned that breast cancer has become a social stigma for many years; and that through Thrive, its members hope to reach out to women who needed someone to talk to or to lean on during their trying moments. With the help of Spruce, one of the country's leading footwear, 10% of all purchased pair of its shoes would go to Thrive Cdo for the benefit of helping people with breast cancer.

I was really glad that I'd been supporting Spruce for over 2 years now; in fact, I still have my 2 pairs of shoes which I bought from their store.

The forum was also graced by Dr. Rhoel de Leon, well-known as probably one of the best cancer surgeons in the country. During the forum, he gave some insights and clarifications with regards to breast cancer. He also informed everyone that the key to prevention is early detection. He  mentioned 3 levels of screening, which are: 1) to have breasts examined a week after menstruation; 2) to have doctors examine the breasts; and 3) to have a Mammography.

The 2-hour conference last Saturday was a success; and I hope to be joining any upcoming events for the rest of the year. For more information about Thrive Cdo, you can call their contact numbers: 0915-4831225 or visit their Facebook page at

I would like to thank Thrive Cdo for an afternoon of Pinked Tea, and for Spruce for giving me a wonderful gift: a new pair of shoes! I'm encouraging everyone to buy their products because you are in some way supporting a cause that could help save lives.

Transition Period

My daughter's exams are finally over but she's still going to school for some practices. My daughter used to be a perfectionist before but now I don't know with her, it seems like she's having some hard time adjusting herself. I was informed before that this is the age where kids will have difficulty in their transition period. I just don't know how to deal with it.

Anyways, glad that they will be having their vacation for 2 months. At least I won't be waking up early then. My husband can manage to eat breakfast at the office so I guess I'll have 2 months of extended sleep in the morning, hehehe.

Be updating here from time to time. Be finishing other tasks..
