Zoomanity Parks now have something for Nocturnal Zootizens this season, reliving the famous Night Safari which they started early October of this year and will last til January of next year.

Sleepworth, I Don't Have to Find Sleep! Sleep Finds Me!

Sleep, seems to be something that is a luxury that sometimes I can't afford busy and demanding days are always what my day almost everyday, not including commitments that investments on time with your love ones, friends and associates. Which is why when I get a chance I grab it right away may it be while traveling or just sitting in a place while waiting.

Lately did I realize the importance of having a pretty good sleep is which helps us out on the challenges that we face on a daily basis. Good sleep helps us think better, energy to keep up, makes us healthier mentally, physically and even emotionally. My say is we should invest on time for us to have enough rest and even invest on stuff in our bedroom. One of the brands that came in my mind was Sleepworth which stands for better sleep.

I've learned that they source environment-friendly materials, employ highly skilled workers, and put a great deal in creating and crafting their products. Also learned something about the manufacturer of Sleepworth as well which is HOME EXPRESSIONS CONCEPTS, INC. (HECI).

HOME EXPRESSIONS CONCEPTS, INC. (HECI) is a family-run and operated enterprise owned by Ms. Filipinas Katly Torres. The company is engaged in designing and manufacturing of quality cotton mattresses and other sleep essentials, and is considered today to be one of the most notable names in the field.

The company traces its roots back to the 1980s when Ms. Torres first ventured into small-scale retailing of scrap textile and cotton waste in local community markets. With enough savings, the company was able to buy basic equipment to process scrap cotton and textile into stuffing material for pillows, stuffed toys, and mattresses.

Then came the innovation of the use of recycled denim cotton clippings as stuffing solely for bed mattresses, of which HECI has become known for locally as a bed mattress manufacturer using “kapok” (cotton). The company employed a number of underprivileged residents in their surrounding community, providing them with valuable skills and opportunities for growth.

At present, HECI is known for its flagship brand, Sleepworth. Originally conceived as a more comfortable yet affordable alternative to ‘banig’ (straw mat) it has evolved into the patented 100% quilted recycled cotton design that the company is trusted and known for.

The factory is situated in Brgy. Sto. Nino, Cainta, Rizal. True to the company’s goal of promoting community growth, it employs more than 135 workers residing in immediate towns.

The Dog, The Baby and the Mother

I happen to stumble upon this story while browsing in my social media account's wall. I hope more people can read about this most specially the people who needs it.

A dog was so faithful that the woman could leave her baby with it and go out to attend other matters. She always returned to find the child soundly asleep with the dog faithfully watching over him. One day something tragic happened.

The woman as usual, left the baby in the "hands" of this faithful dog and went out shopping. When she returned, she discovered rather a nasty scene, there was a total mess. The baby's cot was dismantled, his nappies and clothes torn to shreds with blood stains all over the bedroom where she left the child and the dog. Shocked, the woman wailed as she began looking for the baby.

All of a sudden, she saw the faithful dog emerging from under the bed. It was covered with blood and licking it's mouth as if it had just finished a delicious meal.

The woman got angry and assumed that the dog had devoured her baby. Without much thought she beat the dog with a wood to death. But as she continued searching for the"remains" of her child, she beheld another scene.

Close to the bed was the baby who, although lying bare floor, was safe and under the bed where the body of a snake was torn to pieces in what had been a fierce battle between the snake and the dog which was now dead. Then reality dawned on the woman who now began to understand what took place in her absence. The dog fought to protect the baby from the ravenous snake.

It was too late for her now to make amends because, in her impatience and anger, she had killed the faithful dog. How often have we misjudged people and torn them to shreds with harsh words and deeds before we have had time to evaluate the situation?

This is called SIN OF PRESUMPTION Presuming things our way without taking the trouble to find out exactly what the situation really is. Little patience can drastically reduce major lifelong mistakes. Who Are You misjudging right now?. Don't think what you think others are thinking. Take time to get the whole truth.

Aeternum - How Ready Are You?!

Aeternum, a latin word for Eternity. This is were I went last weekend which is rather one of the interesting tour in the Metro but this time it will be for awareness on how ready we will be in our future. This is a sensitive topic but a reality that everyone will face in the future.

My professor ones said that when we live in this life, we will face 3 facts: first fact of life is change which is something that we will encounter in our lifetime, second is tax and we will face this weather we like it or not and whether it will fall to the right hands or the wrong pocket, and third fact of life is we will live and will eventually die so the next question will be how ready are we to face it.

Aeternum is within the general vicinity of the Fort Bonifacio Global City, the premier business and residential address in Metro Manila. We were all made aware of who and what Aeternum is and its services all questions were answered in the Question and Answer portion of the program after our tour in the vicinity. One of the answers that retained to my mind is that you don't have to be rich to avail the services of Aeternum because they also have installment packages that can fit the budget of an ordinary Joe.

I believe everybody will agree with me that this is no ordinary place, looking around will just relax your mind and soul.

Here are some of the Features and Amenities that they have:

•  Man-made lagoon & waterfalls
•  A garden oasis with lush greenery
•  Top grade construction materials
•  Good Feng Shui environment
•  Convenient location with ample
    parking spacea
•  Numerous lamp posts & ambient
    relaxing music
•  Exclusive Aeternum – The Park Estate
    Columbary Chapel with ecumenical
    prayer area
•  Managed & maintained by
•  Coffee shop with wi-fi internet

Awareness was added to us that weekend and just like the other pre-need services that we know like education, insurance and the likes this will also be something worth investing for. We do it not only for ourselves but most specially for our love ones.

Brickfire A Budget Friendly Steakhouse

First and foremost, Brickfire is a budget-friendly steakhouse. Its flagship dishes are The Duke and the Cowgirl Annie, which are generous cuts of tender local beef classically seasoned with salt and pepper.
That is where Brickfire stops being your typical budget steakhouse and becomes so much more.
One of the biggest differences with Brickfire is how the beef is cooked. Instead of the steaks being grilled, they are baked in a Brickfire oven, keeping the steaks tender and sealing in the flavorful juices, which is key to that irresistible beefy taste often found lacking in thinly cut, grilled steaks.

Brickfire doesn’t just stop differentiating itself there. It takes further steps into the diverse art of preparing steaks by offering two additional playful flavors: Honey Mustard and Wasabi. The Honey Mustard steaks are made with the famous Filipino sweet tooth in mind and are a nice alternative to the traditional salt and pepper flavor.

Daniel Matsunaga after PBB Win - New San Marino Tuna Endorser

As a believer in living life to the fullest, ‘Brapanese’ model Daniel Matsunaga regularly does cardio exercises, lifts weights, and participates in a lot of sports like professional football and the Spartan Race, the most difficult obstacle race franchise, whose US competition he wishes to join someday. He also loves to wakeboard and get into the groove of Brazil’s traditional dance Capoeira.

But sports and workout is only a small portion of what makes the Pinoy Big Brother (PBB) grand winner fit and strong. The strength to do all his activities, especially after his recent big win at the reality show, comes from a daily diet that consists of a lot of protein that he gets from his favorite tuna.

“Food diet is very important for me. It gives me the strength to seize whatever opportunity comes my way after winning the top prize in PBB. And for me, the perfect diet mostly consists of high protein tuna from San Marino Tuna Flakes,” Matsunaga said. Protein, after all, is an essential building block of muscles. The more protein people eat, the more they build and strengthen their muscles, which in turn will allow them to enjoy more activities and live life to the fullest.

After introducing a few years back its fresh twist to canned tuna, the “corned tuna,” San Marino has just joined the conventional canned tuna market with the newly launched tuna flakes line that comes in oil and hot & spicy variants, and in easy-open cans.

Made from freshly-caught tuna with no preservatives, San Marino Tuna Flakes contains the highest level of protein to help build strong muscles so one can make the most out of life and take on #WhatsNewWhatsNext. This makes San Marino Tuna Flakes the perfect choice for health and fitness buffs. On its own or prepared in a variety of dishes like sandwiches and pasta, one can truly enjoy the natural goodness of tuna and the strength that comes with it.

During the launch of Matsunaga as the face of the new San Marino Tuna Flakes, Foodsphere President Jerome Ong said, “We are glad to welcome Daniel as one of our brand endorsers. After all, we created our newest tuna flakes product with millennials like him in mind. San Marino Tuna Flakes will fuel them so that they can do one exciting adventure after another.” Ong further shared that their newest product is “a dream come true for everyone behind Foodsphere. It captures the essence of how the company has grown stronger and risen higher than ever to achieve its vision of providing total satisfaction to Filipinos through food that nourishes life.”

Present as well in the San Marino Tuna Flakes’ launch are fit & fab celebrities like young basketball superstars Jeric and Jeron Teng, Dela Salle Archers’ Big Man Arnold van Opstal and lady spiker Mika Reyes, hunks Marc Nelson and Victor Basa, actress-models Phoemela Baranda and Bubbles Paraiso, showbiz reporters Ginger Conejero and Divine Lee, showbiz daughter Dani Barretto, and hosts Nikko Ramos and Katz Salao.

Held at the Mercato-Bonifacio Global City in Taguig, the San Marino Tuna Flakes launch event also treated guests and participants to try out exciting activities for free like wall climbing, trapezing, rappelling and win exciting prizes like GoPro cameras and Garmin watches.

Even if you're just sitting somewhere near the track or on the 3rd floor of the watch pods in Clark International Speedway adrenaline will sure be pumping and will drive you nuts at some point especially if you have someone in the racetrack to cheer for, in my case it will be the ATAT Racing Team for the Superbike category. Why? Well..who wouldn't? Since this is my first time to watch something like this which made me a fan instantly by the way, allow me to show some of the pictures.
