URATEX PHILIPPINES CELEBRATE DANCE FEVER 8



Yes I love to DANCE.  In high school and college, I remember getting extra high grades in P.E. whenever there was dancing involved. 

But over the years, I have stopped serious dancing. I only dance at home, when I am trying to de-stress. Most of the time, my cardio workout involves dancing with mopping-sweeping-and-feather-dusting LOL!

As much as I can, I try to walk or bike around the village - that is my kind of exercise.


CELEBRATE DANCE FEVER 8



So when I was invited to Celebrate Dance Fever 8, an annual event organized by Uratex Philippines -- I was kindda jittery. It involves participating in Zumba, which I will try for the first time.

Uratex Philippines, in the past 8 years have been doing the annual Dance Fever that invites Uratex employees from its different branches, for a day of Zumba Party and bonding.  This I think is a good event for the employees, because it encourages them to be active and focus on how to improve their health and bodies.

MRSWISE DREAMS OF A #SMOKEFREEPH



This blog article is very PERSONAL. It tackles one of the many issues that I have been fighting for since I started working -- SMOKING!


Credit:  SmokeFreePH FB page



BRIEF BACKGROUND:

In 1992, I got lucky to be accepted as a writer in one of the leading TV networks of the country. Lucky, because I fulfilled a long time dream of mine to write and get immersed in a fast-paced and very challenging industry. My work often involved long hours, no sleep for 48 days, and stress 24-7.  But I didn't quit. Because I thought it was all part of the job.

Not until in 2012. It was the year when I was diagnosed with a pulmonary disease. I decided, it was the end of the line for me. I prioritized my health and my family over work. 

20 long years in TV production. I know, the culprit for my illness is too much stress. And being exposed to second hand smoke.

There were times, non-smoker like me will be exposed to "smoking bosses" presiding meetings. All I can do was to cover my mouth and nose with a face towel. And took the risk of being labelled as an asshole. Yes, they labelled me as the matigas ang ulo na writer.  Let me ask you now, was that fair?

Co-workers will constantly smoke during shoots and tapings outside the studio. And I will always end up going home with a cough or a sore throat.

Which made me think -- I HAVE A RIGHT TO CLEAN AIR. WHY ARE YOU POLLUTING THE AIR I BREATHE?

I find it so unfair -- that I, who have never smoked in my life - would end up with health issues. 

SMOKING IN THE FAMILY

My husband used to smoke. Around 2 packs a day. I asked him to quit when we had my daughter in 2000.  He finally kicked off the habit in 2009. I was the happiest person when he did that.  Hubby became addicted to biking. He would bike to work almost everyday. It was a challenging journey to a healthy lifestyle.

During this time, I began to immerse myself with gardening. It was also a step to a healthy lifestyle. We now enjoy eating fresh, organic veggies from the garden. I also planted several trees around the house -- for better supply of oxygen.

PRIME PINASARAP MOMENTS AT THE 2ND PRIME MOM CLUB WORKSHOP



FACT:  
I recently joined the Prime Mom Club of MegaPrime. Before they approved my membership, they asked me this question - what are the qualities of a Prime Mom. And my answer:  a Prime Mom is innovative, creative and money savvy.  

As a mother of two, I always try to work on these three characteristics. Being money savvy is easy. I was born kuripot hahaha!  Being creative also, is easy.  But being innovative is not. Its hard to think of new ways of dealing with everyday tasks. Like disciplining, or keeping your teens busy at home. And the biggest challenge -- being innovative in the kitchen. How do you make NEW recipes that your family will love. Or at least, make a few twists and innovation to ordinary recipes to make it interesting. 

This is one of the reasons why I joined the Prime Mom Club :)


MEGA PRIME HOLDS 2ND WORKSHOP FOR ASPIRING MOMPRENEURS

So when I got an invite to the 2nd Prime Mom Club's workshop, I was so excited. Because I know that its a chance to further enhance my kitchen knowledge, at the same time, the invite said, the workshop is geared towards MOMPRENEURS to learn about new business in time for the holidays. I said yes right away to this event, because it is a chance to learn something new!



CRAFTING 101 BY VIA PACHECO OF MAARTSY

First workshop was how to make Holiday trinkets. I have been the crafty mom, but age caught up with me, that now I am having a hard time looking at small pieces of materials without my glasses hahaha!  But that did not stop me from actively participating in the trinket making.  It was the first time that I used long nose pliers in manipulating those small rings to make the trinkets. MRSWISE TIP:  I suggest you don't cut your nails if you want to go into crafting. I had a hard time manipulating the jump rings and eyepins of the small chains because I cut my nails just before I went to the workshop LOL!  

Take a look of the finished product that I made. Very cute!

BIOTULIN: THE SECRET TO BEAUTIFUL SKIN



Having worked in the entertainment industry for two decades, I have been exposed to celebrities who have undergone different cosmetic procedures on their faces. Some looked good after, but I have seen some, who looked kindda weird after admitting to have subjected themselves to such cosmetic procedures. The usual culprit... BOTOX!

A lot of celebrities, local and abroad who have had Botox injected on their faces, admit that, it left them "unable to form any expressions".  

That started my Botox scare. So imagine my reaction, when I received an invite to an intimate presscon of what is dubbed as "organic botox" -- Biotulin.  And when I heard that it is the beauty secret of women icons Madonna, Michelle Obama and Kate Middleton - I just simply had to learn more about the product!  Especially when it claims -- its ORGANIC!


Biotulin Celebrities


ORGANIC BOTOX:  BIOTULIN 


Biotulin is a transparent, fragrance-free organic gel applied to the face and quickly absorbed by the skin, making facial features smooth, soft and supple in no time. It has the power to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines just like Botox but minus the needle injections, pain and downtime. 

Biotulin Mrs.Wise


Before the Philippines, Biotulin is already making waves in other Asian countries like China, South Korea and Singapore. It is also popular in different countries around the world. Aside from the USA, Brazil, New Zealand and Australia, it’s already a top beauty trend in European countries such as Germany, Great Britain, Spain, Italy, France and Portugal.
