Earth Hour at The Linden Suites

While most of the people who are celebrating the world-famous Earth Hour are outside their homes, may be lighting a candle along the sidewalks or dancing in some parks while wearing glow in the dark shirts or necklaces, yours truly was safely and soundly enjoying the unusual silence of Ortigas Central Business District, mainly inside the newly renovated The Linden Suites.

Last Saturday, after months of not having a "Me Time", I had the chance to finally enjoy some quite and alone moment for my self at the comfort of The Linden Suites, along San Miguel Avenue, Pasig City. A day full of relaxation and some stomach-filling moment, my Saturday was basically in accordance to the Earth Hour celebration that half of the world will be celebrating that night. 

This is my first time to lock myself away from the normal Earth Hour crowd, so at some point, I find it interesting and exciting.

Summer, the Home Improvement Season!

March - this is the month, where most of the kids bid farewell from their school and say hello to an exciting summer season. This is also the month for some people to take some leisure vacation and just enjoy the sun, sand and sea. But to those who think of the future, March is the month for preparation for the upcoming rainy season. 

Summer may be exciting to experience, but with worries that you have for your comfort zone, this season also calls for a worthwhile home improvement that will keep you safe and sound for the forthcoming season change.

Last weekend, at the World Trade Center Manila, I witnessed such an amazing display of home utilities and designs that didn't just excite me but also made me realize some learning to keep in mind. From roofing to piping, the WorldBEX 2015 was truly a showcase of ingenuity of people to make our lives better and more meaningful.

Let's Continue Celebrating Valentine's Day at Galleon.ph

Do you agree to the statement Valentine’s Day is not a day event, but rather an event of a lifetime? Although it is heartwarming to see boys and girls from all ages panic every February 14, the soul of Valentine’s Day lasts until the very last minute of December. You see women line up in the men’s section. You see men run around with a bouquet of roses and a box of chocolates with confidence. But the funny thing is these occurrences do not only happen on one special day. It happens everyday in all parts of the world. Why? It is because gift giving is not only romantic in itself but also fulfilling to the soul. It is a sweet kind of phenomenon. Love in the air 24/7? It is definitely not a bad world to live in.

The joy in gift giving is the uniqueness each individual can offer to a significant other. Yes, chocolates and roses are classic options. But is it only you who could put those on the table? Be creative and make it personalized. The effort counts and the present in itself would be deeply appreciated. Mr. Jeffrey Siy of Galleon.ph gave his advice on this good problem. Partner his tip with Dragonpay, and you will surely sweep her off her feet.
