Sunset Photos of my Father's Hometown!

ILOCOS SUMMER EXCAPADES 2016

I'll never missed this Beautiful Sunset View
of my Father's Hometown at
Sta. Maria Ilocos Sur.
I've longed this every Summer.

The harmony, the blue skies gives illuminates within my soul.
The serenity of the warmth & stillness of 
the waters brings me peace.

As I walked on the shoreline, 
I watched the darkness unfolds and light
hides in the horizons, a new found
joy that encircles every awakening 
Of my Spirit allowing me to be 
thankful for the majestic view I've 
just witnessed.

Here are some of my fabulous 
#sceneryporn Photos of the 
Nalvo Beach














For Seraphim's, Summer is not all about fun, making your body tan or swim on the beach. Dance and drink, 
be merry  in the sands.
 But, for me summer is a
way for me to be more closer to our
creator. To be thankful for his 
magical creations, the aqua blue oceans glittering with diamonds & the waves of sunset rays across the wide clouds.
Let you feel alive and free. 

Indeed, I love the skies, oceans & sunset.
The True meaning of Summer is 
valuing the beauty of God's creations.
Meditate & Be thankful for every minute 
Of your Life. If you feel  some
frustrations & loneliness.
Commune with God's creations.
Have a journey to the beach. 

Believe me, walk,stare & feel the wind..Experience the presence of the tranquility of the waters.
It will give you strength & will power 
to face the real world.
A temporary escape from nature will benefit your whole system because 
your body knows, its time for you 
to breathe the joy of Life & Love 
from up above.
Remember, you have a beautiful life 
to share it 
with your loved-ones,families & friends!

Thank you for reading this blog for my

Salon Review101: TENG ROMA at WestGate Alabang!



Nowadays,creating expressions or art could no longer be found on the wall painted with graffiti or exemplary music prepared by an artist.

It could also,be seen in social media but as well thru one's hair color/ hair style. You could instantly see one's personality,thru their hairdye,how jolly, colorful and bizarre a person is. They have their own statement or taste to dwell on their issues in life.

Some might say,you definitely can tell if woman's heart is broken if they cut their hair short. New style to mend their hearts in trouble. To change their old ways of living, into a lonelysoul/modessed way into rockin/ adventurous spirit.

Definitely,Our hair is our crown jewel. That's why it's difficult to give full trust to a hair stylist to cut or even trim your hair. It really depends on how heavy or smooth the hand,who will touched the single root of your hair. How successful,she/he can bring out the best in You.

This is not an ordinary blog,because this will be my 1st Time to write for a SALON101: Blog Review.

Tips on how to choose a Salon:

1) Ambience & cool environment
How soothing the place is? Does it approved your classy & elegant style?

Is the place neat and has explicit organized structural design of mirrors & chairs?

2) Professional stylist & friendly staff

Being Hair Expert gains confidence and a big Yes for the client's TRUST! Having a nice, kind and polite staff makes a customer experience memorable.

3) Price compensation.

The pricing must be worth of the Hair style you ask, should be reasonable and delightfully delivered with satisfaction.

4) Equipped with New Hair Trends

Nowadays, new techniques and hair style are parading in the scene. All Salons should be flexible and wide knowledge of new release of hair style.

#1 Amazon Bestselling Author Publishes New Children’s Book, MOMMY LOVES YOU JUST THE SAME



MANILA, Philippines – May 25, 2016 – #1 Amazon bestselling Author and Inspirational Speaker Teresa Gumap-as Dumadag launched her first children’s book Mommy Loves You Just the Same last May 19, 2016. The author’s two older children inspired her to write the book while she was pregnant with her third child. It tells the heartwarming story of how an expectant mother assured her son of her unchanging love — during her pregnancy and after she gave birth to her new baby. It also shows how this mother’s assuring love inspired and enabled the little boy to become a loving and responsible big brother.
“As a mom of three kids, I love how this book reassures the older kids that we love them just as much as before as well as helping to foster and nurture love for their new sibling. Children can be quite anxious about the arrival of a new baby and this book does well to put those insecurities to rest,” says Author of Project Mom, Celebrity and Blogger Amanda Griffin-Jacob.
“A definite must-have for any family who is about to add a new member to the family,” adds Jacob.
“Mommy Loves You Just the Same is a pleasure to read with its melodious text and clean illustrations. The story is sweet and relatable: it will be a great source of comfort for the new older brother or sister who might feel a bit threatened by the newest member of the family,” says Mariel Uyquiengco, a homeschooling mom of three, editor and speaker at the Learning Basket, a U.S. licensed Kindermusik educator and a Certified Positive Discipline Parent Educator.

Martine De Luna, another mom who is also a Content Creation & Social Media Consultant, Founder and Editor-in-Chief of Make it Blissful and owner of MJ De Luna Events says this about the book, “As a mom of two, I could very much relate with Mommy Loves You Just the Same. Teresa has done a wonderful job of marrying the joys of motherhood with the challenges of parenting, resulting in a balanced storyline that partners and children can relate with easily. I also appreciate how the coloring pages can be incorporated into my children's homeschooling, as a purposeful yet practical activity for them to enjoy.”

Herbalife’s Nutrition At Work Survey Reveals: Majority of Philippines’ Workforce Lead Largely Sedentary Lifestyles, Putting them at Risk of Obesity


Fifth Herbalife Asia-Pacific Wellness Tour seeks to address health issues associated with sedentary lifestyles, and deepen practical understanding on the benefits of a healthy, active life

PHILIPPINES, April 25, 2016 – Herbalife, a global nutrition company, has released the findings of the new Nutrition At Work Survey, which revealed that the majority of Philippines’ workforce leads largely sedentary lifestyles, putting them at risk of obesity. The Survey1, which was designed to understand the lifestyle habits and attitudes of Asia Pacific’s modern workforce, was conducted in March with 5,500 full-time workers in 11 Asia-Pacific markets, including 500 workers from the Philippines.




According to the survey findings, almost nine out of 10 (85%) workers in the Philippines spend at least six hours a day sitting at their desk, with 52% of its workforce eating lunch at their work desk two to five times per week. The survey also revealed that majority of Philippines’ workforce (86%) exercise less than three times per week, with five out of 10 getting less than 30 minutes of physical activity a day at their workplace. This suggests a significantly worrying trend locally, on the back of rising obesity rates recorded in recent years.

Nevertheless, the risk of obesity could be averted if workers in the Philippines decide to take control over their own nutritional intake and exercise regimen. Close to eight out of 10 workers (75%) affirmed that they strive to live a healthy, active life, however, the majority of them noted that they find it difficult to stay active during workdays.

“With a majority of Philippines’ workforce leading largely sedentary lifestyles, our mission as a global nutrition company is to help people in the Philippines take practical steps towards leading healthy, active lives. By inculcating positive nutrition and active lifestyle habits to people in the Philippines, we hope that this will, over time, help reduce obesity risks and lead to positive improvements to the well-being of our people,” said Mr. Rosalio Valenzuela, General Manager of Herbalife Philippines.

Aimed at addressing health issues associated with sedentary lifestyles, and deepening practical understanding on the benefits of healthy, active lifestyles, Herbalife launched its fifth Asia Pacific Wellness Tour 2016, held in the months of April and May. The latest edition of the Wellness Tour builds upon the successes of the past four tours that welcomed more than 80,000 participants across the region, and features a host of medical symposiums, talks and workshops led by seven experts from Herbalife’s Nutrition Advisory Board (NAB), covering 26 cities across Australia, Cambodia, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Macau, New Zealand, Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam.

Gary Small, M.D. has recently visited the country and shared his expert views on digital dementia and brain aging at the “A Smart Way to Healthy Aging: A Talk by Gary Small, M.D.” event. Dr. Small, a specialist in brain health and aging, has authored over 500 scientific works and received numerous awards and honors, including the &Senior Investigator Award& from the American Association for Geriatric Psychiatry.

During the talk Dr. Small addressed health and nutrition related issues associated with sedentary lifestyles and share practical tips on how today’s workforce can live healthier lives by making simple changes to their daily lifestyles. Health and medical professionals, academics, as well as the general public have also engaged in lively dialogues with Dr. Small at the event, and had the chance to network with like-minded professionals through the Herbalife Asia-Pacific Wellness Tour platform.

Rounding up the team of Herbalife NAB experts who have participated in the Asia-Pacific Wellness Tour are:
Dr. David Heber, chairman of the Herbalife Nutrition Institute and Nutrition Advisory Board. A leading expert in the field of nutrition, named as one of “The World’s Most Influential Scientific Minds” by Thomson Reuters in 2014 and repeatedly included in “The Best Doctors in America”.
Dr. Chin-Kun Wang, an expert in metabolism and nutrition, with a focus on the clinical evaluation of nutritional supplements, nutraceuticals, functional foods and herbs. He was awarded the National Award of Biomedicine in Taiwan in 2008 for his contribution to medical education.
Dr. Julian Alvarez Garcia, a specialist in sports medicine and sports physiology who has advised professional teams, national teams and individual athletes on a range of disciplines including weightlifting, triathlons, mountain biking, football and basketball.
Dr. Darren Burgess, an expert in sports science and nutrition who has authored papers in multiple peer review journals. He is also the current Head of High Performance at Port Adelaide Football (AFL) Club, and the former Head of Fitness and Conditioning at Liverpool Football Club.
Dr. Nataniel Viuniski, an expert in pediatrics and nutrition who has authored “Childhood Obesity – A Practical Guide”. He is also currently an advisor to Brazil's Health and Education Ministry for Childhood Obesity.
Dr. Francis Gregory Samonte, one of the Philippines’ premier experts in pediatric neurology, and the first Filipino appointed to the NAB. He was a recipient of the Chairman’s Achievement Award from the University of Louisville, Kentucky’s Department of Pediatrics.

The NAB experts were also joined by Dr. Luigi Gratton, Herbalife’s vice president of nutrition education and development, who has written numerous articles on nutrition and obesity, and has appeared on television speaking on nutrition, anti-aging medicine, sports nutrition and other medical topics.

“With each new edition of the Wellness Tour, we are seeing an increasing number of people gain practical knowledge to lead better lives. We hope that that this year’s Tour will further empower people to take charge of their nutritional intake and exercise regimen, so that they can enjoy the full benefits of a healthy, active life,” Mr. Valenzuela concluded.

1Herbalife’s Nutrition At Work Survey was conducted in March 2016, with 5,500 respondents aged 18 and above, from Australia, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam.

THE GIRL KING is the story of one of the most iconic Queens in history. Queen Kristina of Sweden, raised as a prince at her father’s request, is thrust into a world of conflict. Faced with the austere, fiercely conservative Lutheran values of the times, she begins her reign in confrontation – opting for education for all her subjects and an end to the Thirty Years War. Pulled between the Lutheran and Catholic forces, conspiring for her allegiance, she also faces an internal struggle. Falling deeply in love with her lady in waiting, the stunning Ebba Sparre, she is left confused and wanting. As the forces converge, Kristina is pushed towards making one of the greatest and most scandalous decisions in history. This is the story of the young Kristina, preceding this momentous and influential decision.

THE GIRL KING is the story of Sweden’s Queen Kristina, an enigmatic young woman who defied convention, challenged tradition and changed the course of history.
