Halloween Essence

by , in
Halloween is nearly approaching, maybe some of us were busy preparing for costume and makeup ideas, shopping, organizing events for trick or treat for kids and so much more.

I had my little share of halloween makeup as well, I was so blessed to have a collaboration with different beauty creators for an Animal Makeup Collab for holloween makeup and I was so blessed because I don't really want to create monster look or any dead monster look. As part of this collaboration we draw numbers and after that the moderator revealed to us what's the equivalent animal for our numbers, I got the Zebra, first thing that came into my mind is, wow, I got the minimal color to use, the challenge is how to make it still glamorous, I don't want to look scary at all. Hahahaha!!! anyway this is the video, hope you could watch it.



But what is the real essence of halloween? how do you celebrate it in your country, or even in your family? do you have traditions? Amidst of these busy schedules planning and preparing, I hope we take time to remember our love ones who passed away. For me and my family our way to celebrate Halloween or here in the Philippines, We call it Nov. 1 All Saints day and for Nov. 2 All souls day, we always go to church first, offer mass and after the Holy Mass, we go directly to their grave and say a prayer for all our loved ones who passed away. As we reached home, usually Lolo and Lola is preparing some food for everybody's dinner, but before that we say the Holy Rosary and followed by dinner or chibog time. For me the most important thing is to remember our loved ones who passed away and they need our prayers as well. How about you?  I hope you could share on the comments below.

I also made a video on how we celebrate All Saints day and All Souls Day. Hope you could watch it too.



Thank you so much for reading and watching. I hope you have a great day and stay safe. I know a lot of us are going home especially on this occasion. Once again thank you and don't forget to be nice and peace to everyone. Godbless


Best regards,






We will triumph with the help of God who will trample down all our foes.(Psalm 108:14)

UNMASKING YOUR THYROID (Thyroid disorder)

by , in


Are you sure you don't have thyroid disorder?

I was super blessed to attend this event last September 29, 2016 at Radisson Blue Hotel Cebu. This Event was primarily organized by Merck Inc. to raise awareness of thyroid disorder. I'm very happy to share this to you because me as well was super blessed with the information they've shared. 

Do you know that recent study of group of Endocrinologist shows that thyroid disorder is increasing.


In line with this Merck Inc. Initiated this informative events. 


Thyroid gland is a small butterfly shape organ found at the anterior part of the neck, which is part of our endocrine system. It's function is to take iodine found in many foods and convert it into thyroid hormones which is necessary for all your body functions and these are:
Breathing, Heart rate, Menstrual Cycle, Body weight, Body Temperature, Muscle Strength, Central and Peripheral Nervous System and Cholesterol Levels.
These hormones are called Triiodothyronine (T3) and Thyroxine (T4) 
T3 and T4 travel in your bloodstream to reach almost every cell in the body.  These hormones regulate your heart rate and how fast your intestines process food. If T3 and T4 are low, our heart rate may be slower than normal and you may have constipation and weight gain. If T3 and T4 levels are high it will do the opposite which lead to rapid heart rate, diarrhea and weight loss.


Speaker of the Event

Dr. Chrysanthus Herrera
Medical Science and Goverment
Affairs Manager, Merck Inc.

and

 Dr. April Melody Abcede 
Endocrinologist/ Diplomate, Philippine Society
of Endocrinology, Diabetis & Metabolism


Dr. April Melody Abcede gave an informational talk regarding thyroid and thyroid disease symptoms, it's effects and how it will be prevented.

Effects of Over and Under Production of Thyroid Hormones

       Hypothyroidism                                                Hyperthyroidism


Signs and Symptoms
The topic that strikes me is the risk of thyroid disorders in pregnancy. Most women are unaware that they have this condition because the symptoms are similar to the changes in the body due to pregnancy, such as weight gain, fatigue and leg swelling. It also affect the development of the baby. It is estimated around one in 20 pregnant women will develop underactive hypothyroidism during pregnancy.

Based on the recent study of the Philippine Society of Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism, one in every 11 Filipino adults has goiter and around 12 Filipino adults suffered from thyroid disorders. Mostly Filipinos aren't aware about this because the awareness is extremely low. It's time to make a change and be concern right?  You could also take an online test to asses if you have higher risk of thyroid disorder. 


Ways to examine and Evaluate Goiter

Blood test, T3, T4 and THS
Thyroid Ultrasound
Thyroid Scan
Thyroid FNAB

Facts and Myths about Goiter

Eating root crops can cause goiter.(If your eating one truck of root crops per day, then that will eventually lead to having goiter )

After Child Birth can cause goiter.( Dr. April Melody Abcede  said, no, it's not true)

If the person talks so much, some says it can cause goiter. ( Dr. April Melody Abcede  said, no, it's not true)

I hope this tiny bits of information can help you. More information are available on the www.thyroid.ph , this website contains a lot of information about thyroid disorder. They have also guidelines and series of test to help you asses your thyroid condition as per mentioned above. We should be aware before it's too late, prevention is better than cure. 

I also made a video about the event, where in you could here more questions raised and answered by Dr. Chrysanthus Herrera  and  Dr. April Melody Abcede . I hope you could watch and share this video to your friends and families.

Talk will start at: 00:01:20
Q and A will start at 00:06:55



Merck is the world's largest oldest pharmaceutical and chemical company with headquarters in Darmstadt, Germany. The company is one of the leading science and technology firm that works to further develop technologies that improve and enhance life.

Change is Coming, Make way for CD-R King LED Light Tube

by , in

Personally I like CD-R king, as you know I'm using one of their tripod, which is until now, it's still serving me. I also bought OTG cable and USB from them and a lot more. Still they're all in good condition after so many years of usage and now, I'm happy to share that they have a new innovation, which I believe will be beneficial for us. Human as we are we try to strive for excellence. Technology has changed the way we live. As the cliché goes “Nothing is permanent except change”. What seemed to be a harmless household product, later on proved to be harmful in the long run. Years after fluorescent was discovered, it was found that fluorescent gives off a small amount of ultraviolet light and that 8 hours of exposure under a fluorescent light is already equivalent to an hour of sun exposure.
Further studies also associate conditions like migraine, stress, mood swings and eye strain to prolonged exposure to florescent light.
Environment issues on fluorescent is also a great concern. Fluorescent contains a small amount of mercury. Careless disposal can affect the ecological system.
These studies has prompted most household to switching into CFL during the last few decades which was considered less harmful but still contains fluorescent, thus mercury is still present.
The invention of LED has saved us from the long term use of fluorescent. Nowadays, you will rarely see a household which still uses fluorescent light.
Luminosity factor
If household were very susceptible to changing from fluorescent to LED light, commercial offices proved to be less flexible since they question the luminosity of the proposed light.
Larger commercial space requires high luminosity that gives a higher light output. If broken down to lumens versus floor space, fluorescent will boil down to be a cheaper source.
LED light tube
Recent innovation has given a solution to the luminosity factor as it introduces the LED Light Tube, giving commercial offices the lumens they require minus the toxins.
LED light tube gives the same high light output of fluorescent with the benefits of LED technology.

CD-R King, your one-stop media provider with its effort to help protect the environment brings this innovation closer to the general public as they offer the technology at a very affordable price.
CD-R King LED light tubes are available in: 

T-8 10watts (php120)


T-5 18watts (Php150)


 and T-5 20watts (Php200)

all of which can last up to 50,000 hours. LED light tubes can be purchase with casing or as a replacement tube.

Available in all CD-R King branches nationwide. For more updates, Like/follow them on

Thank you so much for reading, thank you and Godbless

 I know that you were aware of this campaign about Alopecia Areata Awareness,  this blog is to give you a little background, who started it?  why they started it? and what are they're purpose on starting it?

What is Alopecia Areata? Alopecia Areata is a condition when hair loss occur due to faults in the immune system attacking the hair follicles which results in partial or total loss of hair on the head and other parts of the body.

This paved the way for the beginnings of Alopecia Philippines. It aims to raise awareness about alopecia and correct common misconceptions and perceptions about it, provide encouragement to people afflicted with it, and create an online support community for them.
Inspired by Abby’s honesty and courage, men and women, kids and teens from different walks of life began sharing their own stories and struggles living with alopecia. What started out as a group of ten is now more than 300 members strong and its Facebook page – Alopecia Areata Awareness, draws followers from all over the world.
