How Soon Should You Start Using Anti-Ageing Solutions?

I received an e-mail from BPI (Bank of the Philippine Islands) Marketing last week regarding their Exclusive One-time Welcome Gift. To claim this welcome gift, simply use the BPI atm card to purchase anywhere through EPS (express payment system) and it must worth at least P1,500. Then confirm the transaction by texting them your full name, mailing address, transaction date and transaction amount.

The welcome gift was Olay Anti-Ageing Solutions kit. Isn't that awesome?

Great timing that 3 days before this e-mail, I paid my grocery items at Robinson's Galleria using my BPI atm card. So as soon as I finished reading the e-mail, I texted them the required details. I received response right away saying that once transaction was validated, I will receive my Olay gift pack in 15 days.

To my amazement though, the gift pack arrived just 4 days later! Here's what's inside the gift pack:

* Olay Total Effects 7-in-one day cream with SPF 15
* Olay Age Defying Moisturizing Soap Bar

Thank you BPI for my Olay gift pack!

To be honest though, I haven't considered using anti-ageing solutions religiously yet. All I use everyday is sunblock cream/lotion on my face, neck, arms and legs. And hardly go out without it. I'm too lazy to do other skin care rituals, morning or evening. For me, the less the better and keeping skin clean is more beneficial than slapping on too much products. However, maybe it's time for me to start using anti-ageing solutions. After all, I'm not getting any younger.

I read a post from Daily Mail UK, a person could get old before their time and that's because of using anti-ageing products.

Experts say that women could be wasting money on products they don't actually need and more worryingly, they could be damaging their skin permanently.
Ref: Old Before Your Time

On the contrary, and as I have mentioned, I'm not getting any younger so I guess it's about
All opinions are 100% mine.

time that I use anti-ageing products religiously. So I did try to look for the skin care regimen appropriate for me. Find your perfect skin care regimen here from Olay experts.

What age do (did) you consider to use anti-ageing solutions?

Proud Volunteers at Recycle Feed Run Event!

Out of excitement to volunteer and be part of a great cause to 'Help Make a Difference', I was wide awake the night before of 'Recycle Feed Run' event that was hosted by HyperSports Philippines. A mug of hot coffee and a quick shower at half past midnight made me more alert. Then I phoned the most trusted taxi company, Basic, to drive me to Bonifacio Global City. 10 minutes later, taxi arrived so off I went.

I arrived at the venue a few minutes after 2 in the morning. There were already a few people at the venue when I got there but I don't know what my team members look like so I started texting them to let them know where I am. Some of them were there much earlier than I was, so soon enough my entire team was complete.

As we waited for our turn to register and for our shirts and I.D.s, I briefly told them what we were going to do:

Okay team, we are going to give away water, coco quench, banana and ice-cold sponges to the runners. Which means, later we will be shouting: "Water!" "Coco Quench!" "Banana!" and "Sponge!" so that they know what we got for them.
We will be divided into two stations, and that's Aid station 3 and 4. 

Then I picked who are going with me and assigned Freddie to lead the other station. It was taking ages queueing for the shirt and I.D. so I went to get the meal for the group. After getting the Hungarian sausage sandwiches for the team, I ran to get the team's shirts, holding on to the list of names and their shirt sizes. Thanks to Mr. Jobert dela Victoria who assisted me in getting the shirts for my team.

Unexpectedly, our ride to the stations was a delivery truck!

 My first thought was:

Is this a safe ride for me and my team, especially the girls?

Nonetheless, I hopped in without a hint of hesitation. As a matter of fact, I ended up enjoying the ride and we even took photos (which can be viewed here) of ourselves!

A few minutes drive later, I faced another surprise that morning. They were dropping us off at station 2 because there were no one to man that station. So I quickly decided who to assign there. I sent Ron, his wife and Floro.

At station 3, I decided to send Freddie, Arlyn and Patrick. With me at station 4 are Dentist Amy, Glads and Arnold.

There were no marshalls to show where to U-turn so Doc Amy volunteered herself to marshall. And so she stood next to the Tropicana Coco Quench banner/marker, cheering and showing the way to the runners. Glads was there also  too eager to cheer and marshall with Doc Amy. Arnold stationed himself next to the ice-cold sponges and drinking water, while I stood next to Coco Quench and bananas.

I should mention as well the kind help of gentlemen who delivered the goods. Thanks to them, whose names I forgot.

The first few runners that reached our station were Kenyans who mostly ignored our offers of water, coconut juice, banana or sponges. Most of them just kept running in long strides. Some have asked nothing but water.

I took photos with my dslr whenever my hands are free. I'm glad that some runners would stop to strike a happy or wacky pose so I did take their photos (viewable here). To my dismay though, my hands went sticky from bananas so I wasn't able to take photos as much as I wanted to.

On the contrary, I'm proud of my team who cheered the runners as they reach our station. Well, we were all cheering them on non-stop, down to the last runner:

Good morning runners!
Go, go runners! You can do it!

Whenever I saw runners throwing the empty cups to the garbage bin, I shout:

I love you, responsible runner!

At the end of the day, us volunteers were overwhelmingly joyous for being a part of a great cause and for serving runners. Most of us are runners too so we know what runners want. Cheering them on and greeting them wholeheartedly was our way of saying "We care!". I hope we made all runners of "Recycle Feed Run" happy.

Thank you HyperSports Philippines for letting us be a part of this advocacy. See you again next time!

Siamese Cats Bring Good Luck

Surprisingly, having Siamese cats brought additional happiness to the family and they are great companions at home too.

If you do not own a Siamese Cat, maybe it's time for you to get one.

You know why?

According to Siam (Thailand) legend, Siamese Cats bring Good Luck to their owners and they keep evil spirits away.

I recently spent a couple of days in a house full of Siamese Cats. And I can tell you that they are very outgoing, social and affectionate.

They are also very vocal when they want something but their voices are easy on the ears, unlike other breeds.

I noticed too that while they are very playful, they catch insects and lizards too. I even witnessed one to be meowing at a queue of ants!

They are curious about almost everything around them and seem to be intelligent pets.

Siamese Cats only require to be bathed once a month and their coats need to be brushed once in awhile.

And, if they are well taken care of, they can live up to fifteen or twenty years old.

A Siamese Cat / Kitten can be delivered FREE in San Pedro, Laguna or nearby towns and in Ortigas Center, Pasig or nearby. 

For more details, please contact this number: 63 999 4053730  and mention that you read and commented on this blog post to get a 10% discount.
