STRIKE - Defend against the Deadly Dengue

Despite continuous studies for the treatment of dengue, the mosquito-borne disease remains to be incurable. Since the epidemic outbreak that started in the Philippines and Thailand in the 1950s, 64 years later, the best discovery to address the deadly fever is still insufficient. While there is a vaccine that is formulated to prevent dengue, its efficacy is yet to be fully tested nor is it available to the public. We are left with no other choice but to rely on prevention.
However, just last year, a new type of dengue is discovered. This means that the new strain is more capable of enduring the body’s mechanism, making it stronger and harder to cure. With all these threats coming despite the progress in finally developing the treatment, still, it does not erase the people’s apprehension in having the disease.
While there is a vaccine that is formulated to prevent dengue, its efficacy is yet to be tested. We are left with no other choice but to fully protect ourselves from having this disease. After all, it’s a smart move and just like what they always say, prevention is always better than cure. One way to prevent dengue and other mosquito-related disease is through Strike Multi-Insect Killer.
Strike is a fast-acting multi-insect killer that has a water-based formula which effectively kills mosquitoes and other insects. It has lower toxicity as compared to the leading brand, thus, it is safe for people, pets and plants. Strike is also environment-friendly unlike other oil-based insect killers and it contains no Chlorofluorocarbon (CFC). It leaves to stain on the surfaces of your home and does not release disturbing odors.
Aside from the multi-insect killer spray, Strike also comes in other variants like Strike Coil Mosquito Repellent, Strike Mat, Strike Liquid Mosquito Electric Repellent and Strike Patch.
For just an affordable price, reduce the risk of having dengue and other mosquito-related diseases with the help of Strike. Strike Multi-Insect Killer Spray is available at SRP P130.00 for 300ml can and SRP P246.00 for 600ml can. Strike is available at Mercury Drug and other leading drugstores nationwide.

MBF: Why Do Filipinos Love to Have Cebu Lechon During Parties?

What do you usually see in national festivities, holiday, weddings, parties and other special occasions? Cake for dedication. Pancit for long life. And lechon for the highlight! Lechon will scream high class, grande, the main attraction. Alta. Sosi. Tutyal!
Why Do Filipinos Love to Have Cebu Lechon During Parties?
Well, the answer might lie on the history down the road in the time when Spaniards colonize our dear beloved country. Lechon came from a Spanish word that means suckling pig. Six week old fed on it's mother's milk, these piglets were roasted whole slowly over charcoal usually reserved for special occasions.
Crispy skin. Tender meat. Flavorful. Juicy.
Lechon particularly in Cebu was now known worldwide, it's a world-class cuisine especially authentic lechon like Manong's Lechon Cebu!
Manong's Lechon Cebu
The feast will be dull without you.
We merry, and we be merrier with you.
The music will be more nostalgic,
With you there's certain magic.
The occasion, more remarkable, memorable,
when every mouthful of rice, there is your flavor.
For your Cebu lechon needs, you may contact Manong's lechon Cebu and look for Ronald Panares at (632)475-6875, SUN: 0932-880-5600, GLOBE: 0927-783-9920. They deliver door-to-door within Metro Manila.

MBF: ShopBack.PH

Can you imagine an online site basically paying back their customers just by shopping online? :D

Okay, first, ibaba niyo ang mga kilay at isara ang mga bibig ninyo. No way, Jose? Too good to be true? Bogus manen? Well, after the very unfortunate incident that personally happen to me online, (Read more about TIMMIG'S Bogus Instagram Shop here and here. I will be updating again, wait lang kayo mga teh) I am more careful on dealing online. Does it stop me from purchasing online? Again, I am more careful on dealing online. Does it stop me from purchasing online? NO. NO WAY. NEVER! The reasons I go for online shopping?
  • for convenience - online shops are usually open for 24/7, remember
How to do it when it's the wee hour of the night and you're in your pjs? The sale tag nightmare will be over once you click the purchase button on your favorite online store. :)
  • Cheaper - because of the absence of physical store, online shops won't add the rent of the shop, salary of their employees and utility bills to your purchase! Smart ey?
  • Again, Fewer Expenses - conventional shopping tends to tire us out. Where to sit down after roaming around and tagging along heavy shopping bags? Restaurant! You eat more than you should because you're dead tired from the walking around and the adrenaline rush died down already. Truth!
  • Crowd Horror! - there was once an event with the famous couple and the crowd is not. moving. There's a huge game of tag and pull and a big possibility of snatching your gadgets, wallet and whatnots.
  • Compulsive Buying - Oh this one's an oldie but a goodie! The sale representative has the power of persuasion and you are hypnotized to buy this and that because you need it in your life, you'll be dead without it,blah blah blah. After closing the main door, you throw the shopping bags and run for your room crying because, again and again, you are being victimized and the worse part is, you loved it! #hugot!
What I do to make sure that the online shop is legit?  I scrutinize the shop - look for proofs of legitimacy, and feedbacks not from the shop, but from the real previous customers. Of course we y'all don't have all the time in the world, so what else to do? Investigate? No. Ginagawa 'yan right after ma-bogus. Ha-ha-ha Napaka-ironic naman kung uubusin mo oras mo to see if the shop was legitimate, 'di ba? Good thing there are websites like SHOPBACK.PH. You buy with confidence, get all the pros of online shopping above and like what I said they pay you back! is a cashback website that basically pay consumers when they shop online. They pay in forms of savings, perfect reward to self and another reason to finalize your next purchase. They are already established on other Asian countries like Singapore and Malaysia and is now looking forward to step to the Land of Pearls, The Philippines and the rest of Southeast Asia.

How to use ShopBack?
Head on over to see a list of merchant stores including Zalora, Lazada and ASOS among many others that offer cashback and discount codes. When you see a store you like, you can click through to activate the cashback. Shop as per normal and after you’re done, the cashback would be award to your account, which can be cashed out to their bank account or PayPal!

How Do ShopBack verify legitimacy of the online shops under them?
They investigate them thoroughly before agreeing to take them on as merchants. So, log in and shop 'till your fingers snap, err, shop with confidence as reassured their customers that all the online shops they will see on their site have been through strict background checks to ensure that they are legitimate.

The holiday season is just around the corner and if you don't want to battle a crowd, make a convinient stop at SHOPBACK.PH and purchase away! The best part aside from the 'ding dong' you'll hear when your purchase arrived, is the cashback you'll get just by using Shopback.PH!

#WilkinsCircleofTrust - 10 SAFETY HACKS FOR MOM

The best life hacks to ensure your family is safe!

Motherhood is a 24/7 job.  A mom is always on call when it comes to her family, with neither holidays nor overtime pay. Being a mom is a challenging feat, but the stress and difficulties are always worth it. Knowing that her children are safe, happy and loved is enough reward.
Keeping kids away from harm at all times can be a challenge however. Whatever kids are doing, it is inevitable for them to fall down or bump into things. As much as it pains mothers to admit, that is a great part of their learning process. But it’s also good to know that there are ways to keep children safe, whatever they do.
Last October 26, Wilkins Distilled Water, as part of moms’ Circle of Trust, invited moms from the media to join an intimate but interactive brunch where they learned do-it-yourself safety hacks from other trusted expert moms using materials that are easily accessible from their own homes.
From the tips below you will learn that a quick visit to a hardware store or the nearest supermarket can save moms from a nerve-wracking trip to the hospital. Here are just some of the tips shared with the moms during the Wilkins event that you yourself can try at home:
  1. Scout the Territory. The first step is to take a child’s eye view of your home. Get down on your knees to see for yourself what’s within reach, what looks tempting, and what could be dangerous for your kids.
  2. Cushion Sharp Edges and Soften Up Corners. Invest on furniture edge guards and corner protectors; foam pipe insulations for instance are easily available at hardware stores. When your child starts running around the house, you’ll be thankful you brought that extra protection.
  3. Keep Window Cords Up High. Loop and tie window cords to keep them out of reach of children, but not too high that you can’t lower the shade all the way down.
  4. Duct Tape on Power Outlets.shutterstock_101236930 Cover reachable openings with duct tape or band aid to avoid the risk of electrocution.
  5. Keep Doors Unlocked.shutterstock_96614200Prevent kids from locking themselves in the room by covering the latch. A securely taped cardboard would suffice for this.
  6. Temporary Tattoo. When leaving the house, write down your phone number on your kids’ arms so that people could easily reach you if your little ones get lost.
  7. Know your First Aid. shutterstock_141645478 Always keep a first aid kit handy, whether you are at home or traveling with your kids. Know the alternatives too.shutterstock_144002641Here are some: for minor burns, vinegar can ease the pain and prevent blisters; paste made out of baking soda and water can maker splinter removals less painful; and coconut oil can prevent infection in small cuts and can sooth sunburn.
  8. Monitor What They Eat.shutterstock_136044737Always prepare clean, fresh and healthy food that is consistent with your child’s balanced diet. Make sure all ingredients and utensils used are properly cleaned as well. Kids might be hesitant to eat vegetables and fruits, but with proper presentation – lots of colors and shapes – you can be sure that your kids will finish their food.
  9. Drink Only Safe and Clean Water.shutterstock_266204423Moms’ most trusted and pediatricians’ prescribed brand is Wilkins Distilled Water. It follows an international quality control system and uses only state-of-the-art equipment in packing and sealing its products to ensure clean and safe quality water.
  10. Emergency Master File for Your Circle of Trust.shutterstock_148165553 We all have our most trusted support group, people we know we can count on when it comes to taking care of our kids. This includes grandparents, siblings, the best friend, yaya, pediatricians, OB/GYNS, teachers, among others.shutterstock_191858711Keep their contact details and other vital information in one master file in order to reach them quickly in case of emergency.

Typhoon Koppu (local name, Lando) is a super typhoon that hit Northern and Central Luzon in the Philippines, leaving a sore devastation to communities. Despite this, as nation of undeniable human spirit, we are mabiskeg enough to go through anything. Mabiskeg is the Pangasinense term for strong and firm.IMG_0166 12096205_967931859939058_7278267593791291555_n
Mabini is a town in Western Pangasinan. It is one of the most devastated  by Typhoon Koppu (local name Lando). In Mabini, schools are one of the hard-hit structures, and some of the structures are in isolated areas. More often than not, people who watch the news or read the paper offer relief goods, clothes, medicines, and toiletries as forms of help. Only few give attention on the education of the children who are affected, how the kids can go back to their schools.
This project is to maximize and spread out the help people can offer. This may sound little, but a notebook can do so much especially that many families lost literally everything; it would help them get back on their feet and start again. Furthermore, the focus is on education because I was a child in that town who experienced being evacuated and all that. I could have saved other things, but my Mom would tell me to save my bag. I resolve that to parents, knowing that their children go back to school is quite a relief.
The main focus of the campaign is to consolidate school supplies, but it would be best to include basic needs like cash, relief goods, clothes, sheets, medicines, and toiletries because many families were not able to save a single thing due to flashfloods. For local cash donations, please contact Franz Marabe through 0999 551 4843. International cash donations are also accepted through online fundraising campaign via Indiegogo ( Anyone from abroad may click the link to donate. Rest assured all monetary donations will be converted into helping the children go to school again. In Quezon City area, donations can be turned in through Romelie Tamares (0936 694 9555). For Makati area, reach Koko Alviar (0917 826 1557). The crowdsourcing campaign runs until the 6th of November 2015. The items will be delivered on the 7th of November 2015.
Another part of the project is to tap interested groups especially student organizations, fraternities, and sororities to spearhead or partner with local teachers and government officials to help rehabilitate the damaged schools. Interested parties may reach me through
If typhoons can leave a mark, why can’t we? Let us help out and rebuild our nation together. As how they put it, the Filipino spirit is waterproof.

Herbalife Health Poll: 9 in 10 Filipinos ”highly concerned” about the potential diseases that an unhealthy lifestyle can cause

Nine in 10 Filipino consumers surveyed by global nutrition company Herbalife are “highly concerned” about the potential diseases that an unhealthy lifestyle can cause them, with the same number believing that simple lifestyle changes can help improve their overall well-being.
A good number of the respondents expressed willingness to adopt a healthy lifestyle; 79 percent said that they would cut down on unhealthy foods, 78 percent expressed their willingness to exercise more regularly, and 72 percent said they would make better nutrition choices.
“We welcome the results of the survey. It gives an understanding of Filipinos becoming even more health conscious and self-aware that they need to make some lifestyle changes to improve their overall well-being. It also gives Herbalife an idea where we are needed, because as the survey revealed only four out of 10 would spend 10 to 30 minutes a day to make simple lifestyle changes,” said Rosalio Valenzuela, Herbalife Philippines General Manager.
The respondents, however, cited the following as the top obstacles to achieving a healthy lifestyle: lack of time for exercise (75 percent), lack of time to make proper nutrition choices (64 percent), and high cost of healthy food (62 percent).
The same health poll likewise showed that the top three aging-related concerns in the country were heart, brain, and eye health.

Better knowledge and understanding
“The findings from the Herbalife survey clearly show that the majority of people in Asia Pacific that we questioned believe in the value of good nutrition and exercise as contributing to their overall well-being. We aim to play a greater role in providing practical tips and information to people to help them understand that the journey to a healthier, more active lifestyle is not difficult to achieve. With as little as 10 minutes a day, consumers can take positive steps to improve their nutrition and be more active, which will improve their overall well-being,” said William M. Rahn, Senior Vice President and Managing Director, Herbalife Asia Pacific.
Herbalife conducted the survey in September 2015 in the lead-up to its Asia-Pacific Wellness Tour. It surveyed 1,200 respondents across six countries, including the Philippines, on perceptions towards their health and current lifestyle. Respondents from Australia, Indonesia, Malaysia, South Korea, and Thailand were likewise included in the survey.

Herbalife Asia-Pacific Wellness Tour
Now on its fourth year, the Herbalife Asia-Pacific Wellness Tour aims to deepen people’s practical understanding of the various aspects of living a healthy active lifestyle. Its previous tours in the past three years saw close to 60,000 participants across the region.
This year’s Wellness Tour will feature five members of the Herbalife Nutrition Advisory Board (NAB) visiting 14 markets and 21 cities across the Asia-Pacific in the month of October. They will share their expert views on how people can make use of the little time they have to make simple lifestyle changes that will enhance their well-being.
Herbalife’s NAB experts will likewise share their views on a wide range of health-related topics, including weight management, brain health and aging; heart health; immunology; and skin care at the medical symposia being held in Australia, Cambodia, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Macau, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand, and Vietnam.
The Herbalife NAB experts participating in this year’s Wellness Tour include Dr. David Heber, who incidentally will be coming to Manila, is a leading expert in the field of nutrition and named as one of “The World’s Most Influential Scientific Minds” by Thomson Reuters in 2014 and considered one of “The Best Doctors in America”; Dr. Lou Ignarro, a Nobel laureate in Physiology or Medicine in 1998 for his discovery of nitric oxide’s health benefits; Dr. Gary Small, a specialist in brain health and aging who has authored over 500 scientific works and has received numerous awards and honors, including the “Senior Investigator Award” from the American Association for Geriatric Psychiatry; Dr. Marion Fltechner-Mors, a health nutrition specialist who is currently heading the nutrition and obesity research group at Ulm University, Germany; and Dr. Wang Jae Lee, a physician and academic specializing in immunology and a professor at Seoul National University College of Medicine.
Dr. Heber, who is the founding Director of the UCLA Center for Human Nutrition at the University of California, Los Angeles, will be conducting a symposium for free to Filipino medical practitioners on October 23, 9am, at the Manila Hotel. The symposium will gather a group of 100 doctors, nurses, physical therapists and medical practitioners. The title of the symposium is “Obesity: More Than Just Being Overweight and Nutrition Forecast for 2020.” Seminars of Dr. Heber are recognized by US hospitals as part of Continuing Education Studies, which are often required of applicants. The following day, Oct. 24, Dr. Heber will be holding seminars for thousands of Herbalife Independent Members in the same hotel.
This is the first time Dr. Heber, who is also the Chairman of the NAB and the Herbalife Nutrition Institute, to conduct a seminar in Manila since the company was founded in the Philippines 22 years ago.
