October is World Chicken and Egg Day. Why I am excited?  

One, our family is a big fan of eggs, most especially organic eggs. Recently, we also starting to try the "cage-free" variety - which came from hens that were raised outside the cage. If hens were allowed to roam freely and eat a natural diet, the benefits will surely be passed to end consumers.

Two, we also love chicken. Funny, that the four members of the family has specific preference as far as chicken parts are concerned. The hubby likes the breast part. I love wings and neck. The teens like the drumstick. Given the choice between pork and chicken, we choose chicken! Next to seafood and fish, of course.

Lastly, I always look forward to Bounty Fresh's celebration of World Chicken and Egg day, because they always throw a fun, family-oriented event - that is ideal for the family to bond.


Bounty Fresh the leading provider of chicken and premium egg products celebrated OctoberFresh, the brand's third annual celebration of World Chicken and Egg Day. The event, which was exclusively organized by Bounty Fresh in the country, stays true to its original goal when it was first celebrated here in 2017 - to raise awareness about the nutritional value of eggs and other chicken products as well as build appreciation for their contribution to our everyday diet.  Specifically, Bounty Fresh advocates for consumers to develop the habit of selecting quality and freshness when shopping, qualities that their #LakingFarmFresh products have.

Bounty Fresh, the sole provider of #LakingFarmFresh chickens, is the perfect player to head the campaign. The brand produces blemish-free eggs and other breaded products that are strictly produced using only state-of-the-art, ISO-certified technology and processes. This year though, the brand promises to make the event bigger with its #ChickyMinute campaign - digital series of films that follows the adventure of the brand's ambassador Chicky. Chicky celebrated the first birthday of her "Eggy" last October 12, which is also the highlight activity of this year's World Chicken and Egg Day.

Ms. Patricia Cheng-Lim, Assistant Vice President for Marketing of Bounty Fresh shared,   "our yearly OctoberFresh is dedicated to our customers who continuously patronize our products. As a brand, we take our commitment to continuously bring happiness to Filipino families so we have prepared a day full of fun and surprises that everyone can enjoy."

In addition to Chicky who was first introduced last year, Bounty Fresh also brought in a new ambassador who will make her new adventures much more interesting. Helping Chicky throw the perfect birthday party for Eggy is celebrity mom Jolina Magdangal.

Eggy's Wonderful First Birthday was full of exciting events like the Star Hatchievers which invited participants to showcase their one of a kind talents. 

There were also deals and prizes for the attendees. Several raffle draws were held including a grand prize of Php100,000 tax free.  

"Every family deserves to be laking Farm Fresh. We highly encourage everyone to be more discerning of their choices. So let's revive the tradition of home cooking with our fresh take on what's best for our family through the guaranteed quality, safety and freshness of our Bounty Fresh Products.

In my quest in finding the ideal beauty product, something that is natural and chemical free, I was led to this new discovery - LEGEND AGE LIPSTICK.


It is a premium lipstick/lip balm given its price at $30 or roughly Php1558.  Women purchase this product because of its ingredient. It boasts of beeswax (giving it the yellow colors instead of red or pink) and cherry extracts. 

The beeswax helps in sealing in moisture, improves hydration and promotes cell regeneration on the skin. While the cherry extracts contain iron and vitamin C that makes your lips healthy looking, the natural way.


If you have dry lips, you will benefit immensely from this product. It heals chapped and cracked lips. Also lightens dark lines around the lips. 

Different women will have different lip color when they apply the Legend Age lipsick. Color will depend on skin temperature, blood circulation and skin PH value.



After wearing this lipstick/lip balm for 7 days, I observed that my lips look healthier. Dryness is lessened. Plus, I love the subtle red color it gives my lips. It looks natural, and not painted on!

Hello dear readers!

In three months time, another year will be added to my age. Tumatanda na talaga! There is nothing bad with aging. It is a process that eventually, we will all go through. The positive thing is, as I grow old, I am not anymore pressured by trends and other people's comments. I have learned to be at peace with myself, and do whatever I like - as long as it makes me happy and have no bad effect to people around me :)

The negative thing is... my body shows signs of aging. I also have to accept that. Aside from some body aches here and there... one of the most affected part of my body is may hair.


As I age, I have observed the following hair problems:  
  1. thinning
  2. falling hair
  3. dryness and dullness
  4. loses volume
  5. white hair
obvious dryness and emerging white hair

sorry if this is gross. but this how much hair loss
I suffer every single wash

As these problems progress... I have decided to live a healthy lifestyle to solve it. One, I started on a veggie/fruit rich diet. I say NO to sleeping late. By 9pm, I am already in bed. I also learned to walk away from things that give me stress. I choose my battles now. If I am stressed, I just go to my garde, talk and take care of my plants and voila... stress is gone!
As much as I could, I don't expose myself to pollution, that includes daily commuting. That is why I shifted to freelance and work at home at home writing. No to too much alcohol, but yes to social drinking :)


With all the hair problems that I mentioned, I try to shy away from hair products with harsh chemicals. It will only "age" your hair fast!

I usually dye my hair roots every two months. But based on some internet information,"white hair takes color differently than pigmented hair." That is why it is important to use an anti-aging shampoo and conditioner, and support products that will help to keep the hair as healthy and nourished as possible.

Happy to have discovered HairFoodCo.  No harsh chemicals, guilt-free products. 

EVER YOUNG SHAMPOO and EVER YOUNG CONDITIONER - both are  infused with Moringa seed extract, emu oil and pea pods for a hair that is younger looking. Both products reduce free radicals that is the root cause of premature greying of hair. They boost the malanin production so that hair will change color by time to black (wow, I really can't wait for this to happen on my greying hair!)  

These products have NO sulfates, NO phthalates, NO paraben so really chemical free for that healthy hair.

And being an avid fan of anything Japanese (I might have been Japanese in my past life, joke) - I am pretty much excited with the Tsubaki Oil. This cold-pressed, light grade, fast absorbing 100% oil from Japan (also known as Japanese Camellia Oil) is the secret of Japanese women and geisha to supreme beauty for centuries. 

How to use: towel dry hair after washing. put a few drops into your palms and spread well. apply on scalp and hair. What is exceptional, you can also use this on your skin.


Unlike other shampoo, Ever Young shampoo doesn't foam that well. Meaning, it really does not contain chemical for extreme lathering. Even if it does not produce a lot of foam, when I rinse after, I get that feeling that my hair is really clean. The smell is also very mild. 

The conditioner also smells mild. I leave it on for just about two minutes, and after rinsing it off... my hair is extra soft. And when it is dry, my hair now becomes more manageable, no fly-aways. I am the wash and wear type of a person, so I love that my hair has developed that "body and volume" just by the use of a shampoo and conditioner.


> less hair fall
> less dullness
> additional volume when it is dry, without the aid of a hair dryer


I will continue to use this wonderful combination of Ever Young shampoo and conditioner plus the tsubaki oil from Japan because it really brought back life to my hair after 3 weeks of use.

I am so excited for the weeks and months to come. I have high hopes that with continuous use, all the hair problems that I mentioned above will be eliminated. So excited to achieve younger looking, revitalized hair - using natural and nature inspired products from HairFoodCo.  Really "true food for every hair"!
