Manny Pacquiao Fight in Sparks Sports Bar and Club!

This is absolutely a great experience, to be in the heart of beats and night life in Quezon City which along the area of Boy Scout Circle where bars, pubs coffee shops and hang outs are present. And it is even nicer to enjoy watching a Manny Pacquiao Fight in a bar.

As we all know, this are the times of the year wherein there is zero crime rate, the traffic situation in EDSA, Commonwealth Avenue, Makati, Ortigas, Pasig and other major roads along Metro Manila is becoming a heaven for as far as traffic situation is concern, and it feels like everybody in the Metro went to some place else!

This is also one of the times of the year that it is better if we are not in the office doing work and just enjoying our time with the company of friends, and what better way than to have fun and enjoy the Manny Fight in a sports bar with a few drinks and probably some wages in the side with your close friends.

And I had my share of that fun by being in Sparks - a Sports Bar and Club at the same time!
The fight was not something that most of us expect but what can we do. that time, I still have something to thank for, and that is having the chance to watch the fight with my friends in a sports bar where everybody is cheering for our champ.

Something from the menu:

Sparks Club and Sports Bar is in Nakpil Cor. Orosa St. / 2nd flr. Guilly's Tomas Morato, Quezon City, Philippines. Have a great time watching over the Guilly's crowd at night or chill in the morning with your friends with a few drinks and good food.

Piolo Pascual shares tips for healthy eyes

Of all the good-looking men in the entertainment industry, Piolo Pascual is known to stand out from the rest. With just one look from those dreamy and mesmerizing eyes, he can make any girl swoon. But Piolo himself is quick to point out: Having beautiful eyes is not enough. One must have healthy vision as well because this will help you perform tasks and achieve your daily goals.

That’s what Piolo shared with media friends during the launch of “Seeing the World Better,” a public awareness campaign on the importance of good vision organized by Essilor, the world leader in vision solutions.

According to Piolo, “In my line of work as an actor, it is very important to read your co-actor’s facial cues properly in a dialogue, and you can only accomplish it with good eyesight,” he shared. “That is why eye care is a serious matter for me. Without good vision, we can only do so much, and this limitation can stand in the way of achieving our goals,” he added. Here, Essilor’s brand ambassador shares some important tips for healthy eyes: Keep your eyeglasses on. “I am fond of surfing the internet through my mobile device, but I have learned that the blue light from electronic devices can harm our eyesight, so I always wear my eye lenses on,” Piolo shared. Harmful blue light is a risk factor for the onset of age-related macular degeneration, a deterioration of the part of the retina responsible for sharp, central vision. To prevent its damaging effect, eye doctors recommend wearing lenses that effectively blocks the harmful blue light. Reading in a dark room should also be avoided. With only your mobile device as your main light, the glare on the screen can cause eye strain.

Follow a healthy lifestyle and a balanced diet. Eating a healthy, nutritious diet is beneficial to our eyes. Vitamins C, A and E, folic acid, selenium and zinc, which are present in fruits and vegetables, can make your eyes healthy. Have a daily dose of fruits and vegetables like grapes carrots, spinach, kale, or collard greens, for a clearer, better vision.

Keeping a healthy lifestyle can also be helpful to your eyes, and your overall health. Piolo, who is a known triathlete, maintains a healthy lifestyle by engaging in sports like swimming, biking and running. By maintaining healthy weight, it reduces the chance of getting eye diseases. According to National Eye Institute, being overweight or obese increases your risk of developing diabetes and other systemic conditions, which can lead to vision loss, such as diabetic eye disease or glaucoma.

Visit your optometrist regularly Piolo shared that he has 20/20 vision, but despite having perfect eyesight, he regularly sees an eye doctor to make sure his eyes are in good condition. Regular visits to an eye doctor are very important because it can pick up early signs of eye conditions. You need not wait for symptoms like headaches, dizziness, nausea and cloudy vision before visiting your optometrist. At the same time, eye check-ups may also detect most diseases, such as diabetes, arthritis, heart diseases, and even certain cancers, and can help cure or prevent these diseases from worsening over time. Make an appointment with your eye doctor once a year to keep your eyes and whole body healthy.

There you have it -- Straight from the man whose expressive, healthy eyes have captivated legions of admirers. By simply keeping these tips in mind, we can keep our precious peepers looking good and healthy and be able to perform our daily activities the best way we can.

Crizal® launches first preventive lenses for selective protection against blue light and UV rays

Essilor, the world leader in corrective lenses, is launching the first lens to offer selective protection against harmful blue light and UV rays. Crizal Prevencia lens lets in essential light, which your body needs to function properly, while filtering out harmful light. It thus helps to protect your eyes against the risk of retina damage, caused by Blue-Violet light, and to reduce the risk of cataracts, which can result from overexposure to UV.

Prevention is essential, especially for children & adults over 45
Prevention with Crizal Prevencia is currently the first line of defence against the worldwide problems of Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD) and cataracts. These conditions affect more than 350 million people around the world, a figure that may double in the next 30 years as the worldwide population ages.

Dr Emelita Roleda, General Manager of Essilor Philippines, sums up the importance of this new lens: “It is a landmark discovery in the field of optical science and we are very proud to have contributed, to this major step forward in the battle against one of the most devastating eye conditions. With Crizal Prevencia, we are pioneers in addressing the challenge of preventative innovation today. This perfectly fits in with Essilor’s strategy of playing a predominant role in the implementation of solutions for better visual health for everyone, all over the world.”

Children and adults over 45 are the most vulnerable to the dangers of light. Children’s developing eyes are very transparent, letting visible light and UV pass through the retina. This is a pressing matter, as they tend to spend their days outdoors, accumulating high exposure of UV. As for adults over 45, their eyes’ natural defence system is weakened and more susceptible to the effects of Blue-Violet light and UV.

Prevention is critical in current digital times
LED-based equipment such as the environmentally safer LED lights and LED screens of smartphones, tablets and laptops, have been shown to emit larger proportion of blue light as compared to the old incandescent lamps and fluorescent tubes. Out of the blue light emitted by these devices, it is the Blue-Violet light that is raising concerns.

With more people embracing digital lifestyles, exposure to Blue-Violet light increases. Over long hours, it can lead to eyestrain and fatigue, thus overexposure to Blue-Violet light may increase the likelihood of AMD.

Good and bad blue light
Emitted by the sun, as well as by artificial light sources, such as LEDs, blue light is part of visible light and is close to UV on the light spectrum.

A certain part of blue light, known as Blue-Turquoise light, is a natural form of light therapy. It acts as a “natural regulator” for our bodies, helping balance our sleep cycle and keep us energised and alert.

However, recent research by Essilor and the Paris Vision Institute, one of Europe’s largest eye health research centres, confirms that a specific band of blue light is more harmful for our eyes. The joint team developed a completely new protocol in this scientific domain: an in vitro test on retinal cells to determine the harmfulness of different light rays. This enabled them to identify Blue-Violet light as the portion of the visible light spectrum that presents the biggest risk of causing gradual degeneration of retinal cells, potentially leading to serious eye conditions.

A lens that selectively filters light to reduce the risks of AMD and cataracts
In response to this finding, Essilor has developed the Crizal Prevencia lens, which protects your eyes from the Blue-Violet light that contributes to retinal cell degeneration while allowing beneficial Blue-Turquoise light to pass through.

This is new category of preventive lenses developed thanks to Light Scan™, an exclusive technology that filters light selectively by letting beneficial Blue-Turquoise light pass through, filtering out harmful Blue-Violet rays that can contribute to AMD and UV rays that are a major cause of cataracts, while maintaining the transparency of the lens, ensuring an optimal visual experience for prescription glasses wearers.

Tupperware - How to Keep Your Beach-Worthy Body Fit and Fab

As you exit the gym with your six-pack abs, muscleman limbs, and a Superman chest, or while you prepare to run at the park with your just perfected waistline, slender Barbie hips, and flat tummy, it’s nice to think about how you got this far.

Remember the discipline you needed just to go to the gym or jog at the park day-in and day-out? You recall missing those midnight snacks, forgoing dates, and turning down party invites just to ensure your routine is not ruined. With a bittersweet smile (and perhaps a teardrop running down from your eye), you reassure yourself that it’s all worth it. Finally, you are ready for some smoking hot beach action!

Looking good or having the right figure should not be your only concern, especially if you’ll often be under the scorching heat of the sun this summer. Think healthy living. To effectively maintain that figure for a longer time (if not a lifetime) and to feel good from the inside as well, consider how you keep yourself hydrated.

For as long as you can remember, you’ve been told to drink at least eight (8) glasses of water a day. As our bodies cope with different activities that have different levels of intensity, the need to keep hydrated is not simply satisfied by eight glasses. Most of the time, we need more, especially during summer when we sweat more often than usual.

Keeping count of the glasses you’ve been drinking each day may seem too much though especially while in the middle of our summer escapades. However, the risk of dehydration is real. Sometimes, the common dizziness that people feel while playing under the sun’s heat is usually caused by dehydration. Headaches caused by dehydration could even lead to fainting or a ruined natural ‘digestive routine’, which is crucial for diets and maintaining that figure.

The main tip is to make it a habit to drink the right amount of water your body needs. We know that you can relate to how difficult it is to form habits, so we wrapped up three simple life hacks that can help keep your body beach-worthy!

1.       Always keep a bottle of water with you. 

The easier it is for you to do something, the easier it is to make it a habit. Writers on self-help, success, and discipline say making a task 20 seconds faster will make you more motivated to do the activity.

Recall how you got yourself to jog everyday. Did you put your shoes beside your bed so that when you wake up, you can easily suit up? Think of it as having that Facebook icon in your smartphone’s homepage. Doesn’t that give you easier access? Definitely! 

Plus, looking for a convenience store to purchase a bottle every time you are thirsty is expensive and a hassle. It will also just contribute to plastic bottle waste. Wherever you go, always bring your handy bottle with you. And don’t forget to fill it with water before you leave home!

2.       If water bores you, add flavor!

Oftentimes, we don’t give our best to create habits because we feel that the task at hand is too much of a bother. Spice it up by trying out something new. Toss in some cucumber slices or lemon with your everyday fix of water. This is an easy way to make drinking water fun and much healthier.

3.       When you feel and believe you are hungry, drink water first.

Many of us seem to be hungry almost all the time and it is normal to feel it at an average of four hours after every meal. As Filipinos, we get hungry more often, especially with our merienda culture. The next time you feel hungry, tie up drinking water with that feeling. The next thing you’ll know, reaching for that bottle of water and drinking it all will be as effortless as breathing!

Moreover, thirst is often confused with hunger. True hunger will not be satisfied by drinking water. So, if it is just thirst, you save yourself from those unnecessary calories. Those who are on a diet will surely love this!

Go for a stylish, easy to hold, and durable water bottle such as Tupperware’s Eco Bottle. It comes in different sizes -- from 1 liter that is equivalent to 4 glasses, down to 310 mL that can fit perfectly in your purse. The Eco Bottle is made of safe, non-toxic materials and is tested and proven safe for reuse. It has a tight screw-on cap that prevents leaks and has a tab for easy opening. It even has an ergonomic shape for an easy grip to make sure that your hand muscles won’t get too stressed from holding it. This bottle also comes in different bright colors to choose from that are perfect for summer fun and will match your unique personality!

Keeping yourself hydrated especially this summer is vital in having that perfect figure for your swimwear. With Tupperware’s Eco Bottle, you not only maintain that picture-perfect body, you also help lessen plastic waste on Earth.

So start the habit of bringing along an Eco Bottle with you all the time!

Schick - Make your smooth move!

Do you want to learn the secret for having a smoother shave? Then come to Trinoma Activity Center on May 10, 2015 from 1:00 to 7:00 p.m. for Schick’s Shave to Save: A Shaving Event for a Cause and meet Schick’s newest face, Smooth Lee. Smooth Lee has made appearances in various MRT stations and waiting sheds to promote Smoothism, a way of life to help de-stress, look good, feel good inside and out. According to MJ Tiquia, Product Manager of Schick, the brand has a longstanding commitment to promote good grooming among men, and this usually starts with proper shaving. “Shaving can be stressful, as it can be a tedious chore and may also lead to nicks and cuts. Schick helps take the stress out of shaving. We provide products that help promote a smoother shave and helps avoid nicks and cuts. In our activations and digital videos, Smooth Lee battles Lumpy Bump and Nick the Knife which corresponds to bumpy skin and cuts during shaving. Schick is here to help address those problems,” added Tiquia.
The culminating activity will stage Schick’s partnership with Life Project 4 Youth, a non-government organization which assists in the social and professional integration of Young Adults aged 17 to 24 who live in extreme poverty and are victims of exclusion and also aims to develop the youth’s professional and social life. The partnership, according to Claire Guevarra, Schick’s OIC- Marketing, allowed them to expand their reach even to the country’s most vulnerable men. Guevarra emphasized, “Our shave for a cause campaign aims to help our target beneficiaries, in this case, the outstanding young adults assisted by the Life Project 4 Youth. Hopefully, we can further aid their needs, going beyond the grooming and moving forward to change their lives.” Schick targets to donate P100, 000.00 on this event which will benefit the projects and programs of Life Project 4 Youth. The awarding ceremony will be conducted in the activity center.
Guevarra concluded, “Through this effort, we not only help young adults achieve healthy grooming but also transform the way they perceive their selves, one shave at a time.”
