LILY’S BY CONLINS: SWEET CUPS OF NOSTALGIA

Whether it’s preparing for the day ahead or serving a cup to a friend or loved one, a great brew helps to set the mood, slow down the pace, and create a sense of warmth. For many, drinking coffee is not an empty act, but part of a beautiful ritual wherein you can savor the fullness of flavour and reflect in the goodness of the moment.

Eric Lim, the COO of Conlins Coffee Company and licensed coffee Q grader, is driven to create this same experience with every cup he brews and every product he creates: “For me, great coffee is an everyday indulgence, and it helps to make ordinary moments extraordinary.”

Just in time for the Christmas season, Conlins proudly launches its newest line of premium instant coffee made from special micro-ground roasts - Lily’s by Conlins.

Inspired by nostalgia, Lily’s by Conlins comes in three distinct flavours that brim with warmth and sweetness.

The Royal Latte offers a rich heavenly brew that’s tempered with a fresh hint of honey.  Whether for breakfast or for your afternoon coffee break, this latte instantly helps to perk up your senses. For those who enjoy the delicateness of this Italian favorite, Lily’s Luxury Cappuccino serves a smooth experience with the same creamy lightness of milk. The final sprinkle of cinnamon on top makes for the perfect relaxing cup.

Lily’s Luxury Cocoa, on the other hand, is the ultimate temptation for adults who never outgrew their penchant for hot chocolate.  An elevated version of the sweet treat, Lily’s Luxury Cocoa is a dark indulgent cup that beautifully melds the rich aromas and flavors of premium roast coffee. It offers a delightful balance of richness and sweetness that everyone will love.

 “Lily’s by Conlins is actually a tribute to my late mother. When I was a child, I would excitedly make breakfast and whip up a cup of coffee for her. Of course, it was just instant coffee. But the special, simple act of mixing the coffee with milk and sugar felt like such a grown up thing. Until today, I remember those moments with fondness. Coffee became an opportunity for us to bond,” shares Lim.  

With every cup by Lily’s by Conlins, feel free to indulge. Treat yourself and the people you love with a distinct brew that marries the convenience of instant coffee with the luxury of premium coffee blends.

Experience Joy from within as Snow Caps launches Funny Face Yoga


The first time I heard about funny face yoga event, it actually made me curious about it.  And so I blocked the date since I was privileged to receive an invitation from my fellow mommy blogger.  Honestly, I’m not even a fan of yoga, but I felt like it’s so timely with my present health condition. Having been diagnosed with Bell’s Palsy from last month, added so much stresses in my everyday living. But hey, there’s always a bright side!


This is an extra-ordinary afternoon for me! Interesting event plus interesting people to meet. I got inside the event place and was welcomed with the beautiful and accommodating team Publicist PR. Nice cozy place with overflowing wine and a surrounding of beautiful men and women.

"Similar to the iconic espadrilles, but aesthetically better than it's Spanish forefathers, these canvas pairs will be handed out to privileged guests of this afternoon's Funny Face Yoga Gluthathione." Luis Espiritu, 

I fell in love with this espadrilles! Actually first time to own one of this kind. It's so nice and comfy! We wore it together with the white lounge gown and huge funny face fan. We all then look so cool, a bunch of beauties having hilarious afternoon!

Photo credit to Charming Lani
Of course, already having fun with co-mommy bloggers after putting on own lounge gown and espadrilles. No event will be complete with group photos with these mommies!



The beautiful and super friendly Managing Director of Team Publicis Works, Ms. Marivic Fajardo gave her welcome speech as she also shares her own experience of finding beauty from within. Ms. Fajardo cited a quote that she once read "To be pretty is a generic lottery, but tobe beautiful is equal opportunity." Which is so true. Real beauty is regardless of our economic status, career, religion, etc...

And today, I met another amazing women who's a former model,  started her career at 12 years old, understood the pressure that society has put on women to be beautiful and perfect. Being immersed in the world of fashion and beauty should be. She witnessed very young girls fall victim to dieting and health disorders like anorexia. She also understood the pressure that women have put on themselves-to be the perfect women, wife, mother. 

At the peak of her career, Vivien decided to leave this world of high-fashion and embraced her new role as wife and mother. She learned that her and society’s definition of ‘’beauty’’ turned out to be unreal and she then went on a pursuit of what real beauty is.

As Vivien shared, part of her journey includes what she learned from yoga as a Kundalini Yoga teacher—one of the biggest learning is finding joy from within. To illustrate the fun side of yoga, Vivien taught guests Funny Face Yoga.

During the demo Ms. Vivien Tan shared Three Kind of Exercises

1. Breathing exercises

2. Kissing exercises  


3. Eye exercises 

What made it fun was how funny and silly you look and feel while doing the exercises. The exercises showed guest that to be better versions of themselves, they need to learn to laugh—laugh at themselves and laugh with others. Guest saw that by simply laughing at their own imperfections and accepting themselves and accepting themselves as they are, they can create joy from within. It was a beautiful way to learn that true beauty comes not from how you look on the outside, it comes from joy on the inside. Through a simple and gun afternoon of Funny Face Yoga, guests learned how to create their own joy—and through this joy they have also created beauty—beauty that radiates from within. It is from this mindset that Snow Caps wishes to impart their advocacy of supporting women to be better versions of themselves.


While true beauty starts from within, Snow Caps Glutathione is another way women can be better versions of themselves by helping them care for their skin.





What you need to know about Snow Caps

Snow Caps contains L glutathione from Kohjin Lifescience Tokyo Japan and it has 50% more glutathione content than any other expensive brands. It also contains vitamin C and alpha liphoic acid which help keep skin healthy and glowing. Glutathione,  an antioxidant that promotes radiant looking skin while fighting off toxins and free radicals that are harmful to the skin and body. 

#BetterMe, Snow Caps Glutathione advocates as they support women to be better versions of themselves. And what better way to communicate this message than by showing women a fun and hilarious way to staying young and beautiful? Let go do Funny Face Yoga together!

#BetterMe 
Supports Women to be Better Version of Themselves
Starting today, I'll take the #BetterMeIn30Days challenge. I am ready to be #ABetterMe with Funny Face Yoga and Snow Caps Glutathione.

PhilTA : The Philippine Tennis Summit for Changing the game for the better


September 6, 2016 Manila, Philippines- It's sad to know that there have been issues concerning the development of PhilTA.  Mr. Randy Villanueva, PHILTA's acting president, then organized the Philippine Tennis Summit that gathered local stakeholders of tennis to discuss the present state of the industry and identified action plans towards its improvement. This act is a simple way of promoting reform in Philippine tennis.
During the Philippine Tennis Summit on Tuesday morning, stakeholders, including tennis coaches, players, parents, sponsors, regional representatives and PhilTA officials, among others, along with members of the media, gathered at the Makati Sports Club where issues on Philippine tennis were brought forth. Villanueva, one of the individuals who spearheaded the gathering, presented the current state of Philippine tennis, citing the need to improve the country’s standing in international competitions, increase the number of tennis players in the country, and attract them to become members of the national tennis association that represents the International Tennis Federation in the Philippines, among others.

Mr. Villanueva laid down the plans for Philippine tennis, identifying a strategy that starts with changes within the existing organization, followed by milestones that will create funding and resources, enable extensive training programs, and make way for a consistent supply of high-caliber Filipino tennis players before reaching the ultimate goal of becoming a world-class tennis association. He elaborated that for him to consider the vision of becoming a world-class tennis association, the country should have at least two Olympians, at least two players in the top 100 of the ATP & WTA rankings, four junior players in the Top 100 of the ITF boys’ and girls’ categories, qualify for the Fed Cup World Group, and qualify for the Davis Cup World, all by 2024.  

Mr. Villanueva stressed that to be able to achieve all of these, there’s a need to change the current set-up of the current national tennis association to make way for positive changes specifically in making Philippine tennis inclusive to many. This will pave the way for more active memberships from tennis players, increase in pool of talents, and make the association more sustainable in terms of funding.

“There’s really a need to amend the organization if we are to become a world-class association. The association right now is being run by just 12 people who do not represent any Philippine tennis stakeholders, region or clubs. I think it’s very important that we make it more inclusive to everyone and encourage more participation from the whole Philippine tennis community,” said Villanueva.
One of those elated to hear Villanueva’s vision for Philippine tennis is sports patron and PhilTA chairman of the board, Jean Henri Lhuillier.

“It’s refreshing to have this Philippine Tennis Summit and hear the great plans of Villanueva to move forward Philippine tennis. As always, I’ll be here to support in whatever capacity I can to bring to fruition PhilTA’s plans,” said Lhuillier.

During the summit, Villanueva also advised that he initiated the event in an effort to uplift Philippine tennis and clarifies that he does not have any plans to run for the presidency in the organization’s next election and is just happy to be able to lay down the work for whoever will succeed him.
The program allotted time for the question and answer portion where heavy questions and inquiries were thrown to the Acting President Randy Villanueva.


Mr. Randy Villanueva answered my only one question for him...How do you see PHILTA in the coming 5 years?
While I asked Mr. Lhuillier my question of what made him support PhilTA.  I just learned that he is not just a plain supporter of PhilTA, he himself is an active tennis player too despite his busy schedule. 

The programs and the plans to making PhilTA move forward and improve, shows a bright future for the organization. This might be a bumpy journey for PhilTA to establish everything. As it need more believers and supporter.
I'm excited!
Tennis for every Juan!

My Heaven Sent Milkfish by Sarangani Bay Prime Bangus!

My family's way of bonding time is through eating out or having meals at home. Good thing, I am a mom who loves cooking! I definitely enjoy exploring in my kitchen. 

Fish is a delight for me, but the process of cleaning it while it's still raw... That is what's hindering me from preparing fish dishes at home. And that's my sad story.


Just found a good news! 
Sarangani Bay Prime Bangus offers:

The nightmare of meticulously cleaning raw fish is over! The export quality bangus products of Sarangani Bay is a heaven sent answer for my fish cravings. I can now cook my bangus in so many ways as I experiment. I'm just like a kitchen scientist! 

My favorite kind of fish is milkfish. Actually, the bangus belly part is my daughter's fave too! Bangus is so special to me. Firstly, because of it's appearance. It looks good even uncooked yet...secondly, when it gets cooked already, I know its meat are white. I don't like fishes with dark meat.

Now, I got the best way to enjoy fresh frozen fish, and that is to select brands sold by established seafood processors with a reputation for consistently excellent quality. No need to brave the smell of the wet market just to give in to my fishy wishes...

By the way, do you know that commercially packaged frozen fish can taste as good as fresh caught harvests because they are carefully “fresh frozen” within a very short time after being caught, locking in freshness and flavor? 

Others said that It’s not true that “fresh” fish is always better than frozen fish. Seafood should be frozen as soon as possible after being caught but cost and logistics make this difficult for many fishermen. Often fresh fish is NOT fresh as it may have sat on insufficient ice for days before reaching the market. Try Sarangani Bay!


Here's how I cooked the boneless smoked bangus!
Boneless Milkfish Smoked
Nothing wasted with this bangus!  You can even eat the skin because of its crunchiness! No doubt, it's so  fresh and tasty. This was the first batch that I cooked because the same day it arrived, I was actually craving for fried fish. 

My second  menu is something that I always cook whenever a member of the family is sick or down with cough and colds. The star ingredient here aside from the fresh boneless milkfish bellly is the amazing ginger. The health benefit of ginger is awesome!
Pesang Bangus
Soup with lots of ginger and veggies for us!

Make no bones about it, our name means a lot: Sarangani Bay represents experience, quality, and reliability

Why do I like seafood? It is all because it provides various health benefits due to the vitamins and minerals it contains such as iron, zinc, iodine, vitamin B1, folic acid, and especially the omega-3 fatty acids that is known to prevent heart diseases. We have a family history, and so need to take care of our health.  

Let's Go Healthy! Apart from the nutrients seafood offers, it also helps to easily achieve a healthy and fit lifestyle because it has less calories and fat compared to chicken, pork, and beef.

Sarangani Bay is the most trusted and largest processor of premium quality bangus and other processed seafood products. It is also the country’s largest exporter of the said products.


Synonymous to the brand name is Sarangani Bay, the marine sanctuary of the premium quality bangus and is located at Southern Mindanao. The clean and fresh water of Sarangani Bay is bred by the Alsons Aquaculture Corporation—the only integrated farm to market fish processing operations in the country.

“We are proud to be the Philippines’ largest processor and exporter of premium quality bangus and other processed seafood products.”
