Teddy Locsin Tweets a Good Word for Senatorial Candidate Raffy ALUNAN

No less than Teddy Boy Locsin threw in a good word for my first choice of a Senatorial Candidate Raffy ALUNAN (#3).

Teddy Locsin took to Twitter to say: No one running today for any public office comes close to RAFFY ALUNAN in the qualities of a good official and a great man. No one.

And this is really true.  Been telling the young stalkers, "Hijo, you weren't born yet when Raffy ALUNAN showed his best in government service". 

To the young ones who want to see change in our government, don't forget to vote ALUNAN for Senator.

So Much For "Yaya Meals" - How About Male Executive Toilets

So the story over the weekend was about how model/fashion designer Maggie Wilson-Consunji was rubbed the wrong way in an incident at the exclusive Balesin Island Club where she discovered the "Yaya's Meal".  Just like the general public, I sympathize with Maggie.  But, I don't want to elaborate on the Yaya's meal incident.  One can read that elsewhere on the internet.   Besides, I get reminded of the Torre de Manila monstrosity behind the Rizal monument at Luneta by mere word association.

Billboard Discriminates Women Struggling With Weight Problems

I once had high regard for this company who treated their clients so well and charmed us with their pleasing and professional staff.  Their high level of professionalism is what I believe keeps a lot of celebrities (which I prefer to keep unnamed) coming back for more. 

I was shocked though that they recently released an advertisement which I feel discriminates in an outright manner, the women struggling with their weight by releasing an ad with the visual of a woman on the heavy side and with the tagline, "Want to look better naked?".

The first time I saw it, I said, "I can't believe they actually said that!".  So here I am, writing about it because it does annoy me.  Some people might think, this is nothing.  In this country, discrimination seems to only be a hot topic when it comes to matters of scale as large as the Bench billboards on Guadalupe where earlier this year, there was this brouhaha over a couple featured in the ads. 

I know wish to state, I take offense with this ad.  Though I am in excellent shape in my 40s and a few years shy of 50, I still feel for my friends who are the butt of this crass advertisement.  I may be in shape now but I was once there where I could easily be the target of this ad.

Women who are overweight and obese are likely to experience frequent, daily insults and humiliation from strangers, family and friends, according to a study published in the Journal of Health Psychology by Jason Seacat, associate professor of psychology at Western New England University, in Springfield, Mass. “The heavier an individual, the more stigma they face.”

There is no better evidence to that study than this ad. 

My recommendation : pull down this disgusting discriminatory ad immediately which promotes perverse values of what beauty should be and replace it with a big WE ARE SORRY.

So if it's discrimination we're talking about, nothing rises to the top than what I stumbled upon.  Yaya's meal is nothing.  In this quick picture, one can see four different doors to personal relief.  The doors are, Male Toilet, Male Executive Toilet, Female Executive Toilet, and Female Toilet.  So here we are, this is a four way discrimination which sets the Yaya's meal issue to the corner.

No, this picture of four CR doors does not belittle people by what I see as, "down-labeling" as in the Yaya meal incident.  But it does have the unnecessary pleasure of "up-labeling" the idiots in management who create such controversies as this.  It simply states in a not so subtle way, "We executives piss in a different manner than the rest of you from the rank and file".

Baahh, maybe I give too much meaning to simple signs.  I could just be overreacting.  Then again, reader, what do you think?

25 Years of Belo Beauty!

Dr. Vicki Belo is one audacious woman.  We say that in a very positive way because through this, coupled with perseverance, and hard work, Dr. Belo was hailed the No. 1 doctor in the world who has performed the most number of Thermage procedures. From what was a humble 44-sq.-m. space at the Medical Towers in Makati City,  the Belo Medical Group, celebrates 25 years of beauty expertise with two milestones, the opening of the Belo clinic at The Block, SM North EDSA and the introduction of the Belo Collagen Drink with celebrity gem, Marian Rivera.

Dr. Belo, founder of  the Belo Medical Group,  is greatly thankful that "Belo" has become a household name that carries the pressure of fulfilling quality service, most especially since the Belo Medical Group received the Reader’s Digest award for being one of the most trusted brands in 2010.

As the first and only Philippine medical-aesthetic clinic with a National Accreditation Board of Hospitals and Healthcare Providers (NABH) International accreditation, the Belo brand continues to open its doors to the growing number of clients by opening its 10th branch located at the fifth level of The Block at SM North EDSA. Inspired by the vision of Dr. Vicki Belo to make every Filipino beautiful, one person at a time, her 10th clinic also has a special touch of beauty. The luxe and sophisticated interiors of the clinic was a creative endeavor between Dr. Belo’s daughter, Cristalle Belo Henares and mega fashion designer Patrice Ramos-Diaz.

Offering the latest innovations in dermatological and cosmetic surgery, the clinic provides top-of-the-line treatments like Exilis and Revlite (non-invasive fat melting and skin tightening procedures), Laser Hair Removal, Belo Fat Freeze and many others, which retain one’s beauty in full glory. Currently, there are 10 clinics in Metro Manila, one clinic in Cebu and two in Davao. The second branch at Abreeza Mall, Davao was also launched early this year.

If there’s a price to pay for beauty, Belo has made that price very affordable. With a skincare line available at drugstores and other leading online stores nationwide, Belo brings forth another miracle working product, which Dr. Belo herself has actually been using for years. With the ardent desire to share this with wonder powder with all Filipinos, she has carefully packaged the Belo Nutraceuticals Collagen Powder Drink with hyaluronic acid to suit the daily needs and quick-paced lifestyle of every individual.

Imported from Japan, the marine collagen powder (derived from a fibrous protein extracted from the scales or skin of saltwater fish, including cod and salmon) is packed into 7,000-mg. sachets that can be bought individually or in 14-sachet packs. Brand ambassador Marian Rivera attests to the power of the powder that she takes twice a day — one in the morning usually mixed with coffee, and the other one at night with her dinner soup or juice. Having a sexy body is essential to her, but maintaining fantastic skin is an entirely different story. “Having beautiful skin is very important to me, especially now that I am fond of posting (my pictures)  in social media. And of course, I want Dong (Dingdong Dantes) to fall in love with me every day,” Marian tells us.

Dr. Vicki Belo uses analogy to illustrate how collagen functions. “Youthful skin is like a brand new sofa — it’s so firm that when you sit on it, you are pushed back up, unlike with an old sofa, where you simply sink down. The collagen in our skin is like a spring that enhances the structure and firmness of our skin.”

To emphasize the importance of the substance, collagen is the most dominant protein in our bodies. As a matter of fact, 30 percent of the protein found in our body is collagen.  And more significantly, 70 percent of our skin is composed of collagen. It provides strength and structure to different parts of the body, holding cells and tissues together in bones, tendons and ligaments. Collagen is naturally produced by our bodies and inhibits formation of wrinkles by keeping the skin elastic and supple. Unfortunately, the rate at which we produce collagen in our body decreases as we age and are exposed to the sun. Free radicals and stress destroy the integrity of the collagen fibers in our skin. As babies, we have 100 percent collagen. At 30, we have 20 percent less collagen. At 40, we have 40 percent less collagen and at 50, we have 50 percent less collagen!

With that said, we need all the help we can get to age gracefully. Belo Nutraceuticals Collagen Powder Drink has remarkable anti-aging benefits in making the skin firmer, the nails stronger and the hair thicker. Furthermore, what makes it different from other collagen drinks is that it contains hyaluronic acid, a moisture magnet that improves skin hydration, absorbing a thousand times its weight in water molecules.

The collagen powder has a vanilla taste. One sachet a day dissolved in your favorite hot or cold beverage, be it coffee or tea, milk or yogurt, is all you need to keep your skin hydrated and firm. As Marian’s new favorite, Dr. Belo is hopeful that her new collagen powder drink will reach more women searching for the final answer to youthful skin. Indeed, Marian is a living proof that looking young is a daily drink away. (Or getting married to an extremely hunky guy may be another factor!)
If you don’t believe all the fancy billboards and celebrity endorsers of Belo, there’s only one way to find out how real and long-lasting beauty is achieved. Drop by a clinic and get Belofied!

(Also offered at its Belo Greenbelt clinic is the world’s first Picosecond Laser that is far more effective on skin pigmentation, melasma, fine lines and skin rejuvenation. For more information, call 819-2356 or e-mail at info@belomed.com. Belo The Block is located at the fifth level of The Block at SM North EDSA.)

Dr. Cecile Infantado - A Smile Is A Work Of Art


Often times when we talk of beauty, we immediately zoom in into one's figure or the condition of her skin.  Perhaps that is due to all the advertisements we are bombarded with for skin whitening, smooth complexion, and liposuction. Seldom does it occur that the first thing we mention would be the condition of our teeth.

And this is where the magic of Dr. Cecile Infantado, cosmetic dentis comes in.  An expert cosmetic dentist can do wonders not just to one's teeth but also to one's entire face and personality.

"Because cosmetic dentistry isn't just about the anomalies in one's teeth, but also about many unsightly effects on one's face, including the integrity of the facial bones, muscles and joints, the otherwise symmetrical bit, and the resulting distortion in one's entire facial expression and appearance," says Dr. Cecile Infantado of Smiles by Dr. Cecile dental clinic. Trained in Hawaii and educated in University of California Los Angeles, Dr. Infantado is also one of only three Filipinos who are members of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, whose annual meetings and workshops she attends regularly.

Looking at the 100 sq. m. clinic she occupies at the third floor of Dusit Hotel Nikko in Makati, Dr. Cecile Infantado really has a keen eye for detail.  Bathed in Immaculate white walls and accentuated with her signature orange leaf motif, the clinic speaks elegant minimalism. "The orange leaf is actually an ancient reminder of happiness. And if you take a closer look, the single leaf design actually looks like human lips showcasing an interesting smile," she intimates.

Dr. Cecile's clinic isn't all about beauty and glamour for it also boasts of the latest dental equipment fit for the wide range of cosmetic dental procedures she offers. From teeth whitening to teeth sculpture, from porcelain veneers to porcelain crowns and bridges - event orthodontics dental implants!

"I always believe in innovation and making use of the best technology and materials available. I believed in improving the way we do things. Not just in my practice, but in every aspect of life," Dr. Infantado beams. She adds, "Tailor fitting treatment for patients is very important. I believed that treatments should always be based on the needs and comfort zone of patients."

I look forward to going to work every day and meeting my patients. I just love it! Building rapport with them is something that I enjoying doing - to be able to relate with them and find out what they really want to get out of reach session.., "she tells.

Here's a dentist for us ladies.

Why Having Sex In The Morning Is Better


I know most couples love to hit it before they go to sleep at night but the truth remains that morning sex would always remain the best. If you are not a fan of morning sex, I have got reasons why you should.

Below are 6 reasons why morning sex is the best

1. MAKES COUPLES FEEL BONDED ALL DAY LONG: when you have sex in the morning, the feel-good chemical oxytocin is released making couples feel bonded all day long.

2. ITS BETTER THAN COFFEE: Most people start their day with a cup of coffee as it helps keep you alert all day. Having morning sex helps keep you awake in a way that caffeine can’t.

3. LOVELY THOUGHTS ALL DAY: when you start your day with a wonderful morning sex, you end up having lovely thoughts all day as you reflect on the sex you had that morning. When you start your day with a nice morning sex, you find yourself reflecting and daydreaming with a smile and you find yourself anticipating seeing your partner again.

4. ENSURES YOU GET UP ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF BED: when you have morning sex, it means you wake up on the right side of bed and we all know that’s good for work productivity and having a good day.

5. THE MAN IS AT HIS BEST: for all the ladies that don’t know the best time to hit it with their man, mornings are the best time. The man’s testosterone is at its highest first thing in the morning which means it’s when his energy is at a peak as well. So don’t you think the best time to hit it with him is when his energy levels are high?

6. BOOST YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM: how about starting your day by boosting your immune system? Morning sex does that and even more. It also makes you less susceptible to catching a cold or flu and can also improve the quality of your hair, skin, and nails.
