6 Fun Activities for Children at Home

Monday, October 04, 2021

    Up until lately, there has been a severe bone of contention on when art started. Some art historians argued that the first art pieces’ date back to around 35,000 and 10,000 BCE. However, archaeological investigation in Blombos cave, South Africa, proves otherwise. In truth, the discovery of 70,000 old ochre art pieces indicates that art started way before cave paintings.

     Based on this information, it is evident that art has been an integral part of human life for the longest time. A recent study suggests that exposure to art activities stimulates the brain and helps in self-expression, problem-solving, concentration, and memory.

For the Legaspi Family, Time Stands Still with Luminisce

Sunday, September 19, 2021

     We watched them enjoy ice cream in front of the TV as a family, we cried when mom and dad got married in a surprise wedding like no other, and we saw the twins gracefully transform from kids to young adults. The Legaspis—Zoren, Carmina, Mavy, and Cassy—have gone through different milestones in the public eye, and though their special family moments happened through many years, a lot are quick to notice that the Legaspis never seem to age.

     When a photo of theirs went viral a few years back, which showed the entire family dressed in black and looking impeccably beautiful, a number of comments talked about how the Legaspis had “vampire genes,” with their beauty unchanging and seemingly preserved through time.

AXA Health Care Access

Thursday, August 26, 2021

     I always believe in the saying that "Prevention is better than cure" that's why now more than ever, securing our family's health must be our number one priority. According to a report on health spending released by the Philippine Statistics Authority in late 2020, paying for one’s medical needs grew in the country by 11% in recent years. 

     On this spending, a staggering 48% of the expenses came from “household out-of-pocket”—meaning Filipinos have resorted to digging into their hard-earned savings or worse, turning to loans from well-meaning family, to be able to pay for the cost of hospitalization or other medical expenses that they did not have the capacity to cover. In a separate report from the National Economic Development Authority, it was cited that 96% of Filipinos are concerned about their own and their family’s health, but only 16% are prepared to pay for medical costs. But it does not have to be this way. Here's something worth getting these days because of the pandemic and other unavoidable situations that may arise in the future.

Wacoal Believes That Beauty Starts From Within

Wednesday, August 18, 2021

     It has been three years since I visited the Wacoal headquarters in Kyoto, Japan but everything I witnessed there feels like just yesterday. I learned so much from the tour and it was instilled in my mind that when you say Wacoal-the mission is always making every BODY beautiful. I’ve learned to appreciate my Wacoal undergarments, even more, when I saw the passion and dedication that they put in everything they make. How their years of experience has helped them understand women’s body from the time she started to bloom until her maturity. For Wacoal, Beauty Starts From Within and believes that ageing is a beautiful thing.

     Wacoal is not just an ordinary brand because there’s science, art, and passion in every underwear that you see all over the world. Wacoal, a leader in women's underwear, has taken the time and invested the resources to monitor the changes that happen in a woman's body from their late teens to their 60's, covering more than 40,000 women in studies. The result is a principle Spiral Ageing. To know more about this and the highlights of my visit at their 9th stand-alone boutique in Eastwood Mall after the jump.
