Christmas Like No Other at CrossWinds Resort Suites

Last weekend, after having a super, duper, mega hectic week in the office and at home, I and two of my office pals, Rio and Danica, headed down south to get a breath of fresh air from our busy lives and let the spirit of Christmas flows through our veins. Hey! It's let's than a month before Christmas and we celebrated it in a Swiss way! Crosswinds Resort Suites that is! Wee!

Nestled at the very quiet and peaceful property of CrossWinds Swiss Luxury Resorts, a Vista Land Company, is a Swiss-inspired subdivision called CrossWinds. Designed to give a unique Holiday experience that are sure to be love by a group of friends who wants some relaxing break from their crazy life, LIKE US, or by a family who just wants to spend some cozy bonding time together, this place was our last weekends hideout and made us feel like a child again who just love the Christmas season!

CrossWinds Resort Suites is the one that gave our sanity back after that toxic week, and with one goal that weekend - RELAX - my friends and I had a "Christmas Like No Other" experience at this very tranquil and splendid place. It was very ambitious for us to try this place, really, but believe it or not, a stay here is quite affordable - and I must say WORTH EVERY PESO.

Green Cross School Crashers Hits Paco Catholic School

With all the danger surrounding us nowadays, it is very important to know some tricks to combat them. Even kids who are still in their schools need to know some of these tricks for they do not know who or what will come after them. That's why our number one trusted brand, Green Cross, brings the Green Cross School Crashers

Everyone is at risk of dengue infection, according to the Department of Health. And kids of ages 10 years and below are at great risk that's why we need to level up their protection against this serious, potentially deadly disease - whether they are at home or in school. 

The Green Cross School Crashers campaign is a very important frontline effort to defend school children against dengue. They will go to various schools in Metro Manila to empower school children by teaching them proper habits that will protect them from dengue lamok or dengue-carrying mosquitoes

And last November 17, the Green Cross School Crashers hit Paco Catholic School, where elementary school pupils learned about the two “school crashers”: Daytime Dengue Lamok and Nighttime Dengue Lamok.

Philips presents Headphones that are built to last

I admit it, since I owned a gadget that enables playing mp3 music, the headset or headphone that goes with it doesn't really last that long. I know most of it was my fault why they do not last that long, but sometimes, some are just made sooooo poorly. And I know that I'm not the only one who've been through hell with their headphones.

Each time I recklessly chuck my headphones in my bag after every use, I know that this headphone might not come back to me in one piece. Let’s face it: the bag owned by a guy who is like me that has an active lifestyle, is an extreme environment for headphones. Adventurous and active music lovers always find it hard to make a pair of headphones last due to all the wear and tear from their activities, and I'm sure that there are a lot of me out there when it comes to headphones usage.

“Loose cords and broken headbands are just some of the problems that many music lovers encounter with their headphones. Whether it gets broken in the backpack or in the mountains, people always end up disappointed with subpar durability,” says Ms. Angelia Oh, General Manager for Philips Consumer Lifestyle, Philippines.

United Nations Day at SM City Baguio!

I know this post is a little bit late, but still, let me share to you one of the cutest thing I've experienced at SM City Baguio on my visit there last month. Boys and girls, it's United Nations Day at SM City Baguio!

Attended by almost a hundred of kids from the different parts of the City of Pines last October 24, the Events Center of SM City Baguio was filled by cute little kids ages 5 to 12 for SM City Baguio's United Nations Day Celebration. Geared up to promote each country's culture and heritage, these kids, together with their mom and dad, paraded around the mall promoting peaceful union among the UN countries.

Baguio, its time to plant more trees!

For a guy like me who lives in a busy city like Manila, seeing a place full of trees is really a breath of fresh air. May it be mango trees or just some coconut trees along the beach, it is still a sight I really love to look at every single moment of my day with them. And last week when I was invited by SM City Baguio to be a part of their second installment of "Lets Plant 50,000 Trees", need to say more, I am more than happy to join them! Seeing a place full of pine trees is indeed just perfect for the upcoming Holiday season.

Pine tree is one of the many symbols of Christmas - not only to us, Filipinos, but also to the other people in this beautiful world. That's why I can't blame the people of Baguio City for getting angry when the "news" of cutting down pine trees broke before because, really, just like what they have said, what is the City of Pines without Pine Trees, right?

But as what SM City Baguio told them, and shared to us when I visited this beautiful city once again - one of my top favorites, btw - they didn't really cut down those pine trees, but rather they are just transferring them along with the other Pine Trees in the other parts of their "private" property.
