EVENT | Athena and Brianna Goes To Barbie's You Can Be Anything Day!

Back in the days, I can play freely in and outdoors unlike these days where crimes are happening left and right making me paranoid to even let my kids out. However, some things remain the same, just like the toys and games I've loved as a child and now by my kids especially my 2 girls. Yes, I'm talking about Barbie! When playing with my Barbie dolls, my imagination soars high up to the sky. I get to make my own story and pretend to be anything I want to be. No wonder why Barbie is the planet's favorite lifestyle icon when it comes to exploring different career paths not just by little girls but grown ups too!

In fact, a quick Google search will tell you that she has held over 130 careers in the span of more than 5 illustrious decades. She has been an astronaut, a surgeon, a veterinarian, an athlete, a pop star, even a presidential candidate at least 5 times. To think that doesn't yet include the hundreds of other jobs and identities that millions of creative young girls around the world have imagined and assigned to her in the comfort of their playrooms throughout the years.

This 2016, however, the tables have been turned; the spotlight is now focused on every young girl and their limitless potential with the introduction Barbie’s You Can Be Anything campaign.

Formally launched to Philippine media last April, the You Can Be Anything Campaign is both a celebration of potential and a challenge on the limits of the imagination of young girls. It is a movement to empower little ladies to pursue and live out their dreams, whatever they may be, and for the adults to encourage them on their journey. It is for these young minds to realize that whatever scene that they can conjure and choose to play out inside the four corners of their room can translate into real life; that the glass ceilings they may encounter on their later years are meant to be shattered and that the only thing standing between them and their goals is the limit of their imagination and determination.

To further extend this message, Richprime Global Inc., the exclusive distributor of Barbie in the country, in partnership with The SM Store and Toy Kingdom, turned sparks into candy-colored flames thus they set up the You Can Be Anything Day at the SM Mall of Asia Atrium last May 29, 2016. 

I wouldn't dare to miss this event, so last May 29 we dressed the girls up and went to SM Mall of Asia Atrium for a gateway of imagination. The venue was laden with multiple interactive booths featuring a range of professions young girls freely tried out.

Athena and Brianna experienced creating with their hands at the Doll-icious Bakeshop, where they can design their own cupcake or cookie using the rainbow selection of frosting and toppings available. Afterwards they munched on their own creations with delight! There was also a Barbie Artsy Studio where kids can use their creativity in drawing and coloring. 

All these 2 girls did was pose, smile and run around haha
For the more outgoing and expressive girls, they grabbed the opportunity to be a news anchor doing their prime time spiel at the B-TV News Room. They even got to bring home a copy of their news spiel record as a memento.

And of course, any Barbie event wouldn't be complete if there wasn't anything dedicated to beauty and fashion. The Barbie Pink Salon and Fashion Closet is present to cater to the more kikay (but still equally brilliant) bunch.

For the first time Athena and Brianna got to try face painting, they both chose butterfly!

Athena liked her butterfly face paint a lot!

Other kids got to try wearing make up and outfits then have their photos taken.

A short program and interactive fashion show serves as the cherry on top of the fun. Barbie Brand Ambassador also strut the catwalk with Barbie apparels. Andi Eigenmann and her daughter Ellie also graced the event and they tried different booths too!

Would have loved to let this 2 join the fashion show but they are too shy. This photo was taken after the program. 
"We're looking at this event as a jump-off point to young Filipina girls," explains Ms. Liza Yao, Managing Director of Richprime Global, Inc. "We want to inspire, and have them see that they can be anything they set their mind to and further beyond that, just like Barbie."
It was indeed a fun and interactive day, I'm sure everyone enjoyed it kids and adults alike! I hope kids get inspired to be like Barbie and do whatever it takes to achieve their dreams. Thanks Barbie!

International Thyroid Awareness Week Celebration + Things To Know About Thyroid Disorders

“Catching Butterflies: Spotting the Symptoms of Thyroid Disorders in Children” is the theme of this years' International Thyroid Awareness Week Celebration which was culminated by Merck Inc. and ETC 2nd Avenue at the Fisher Mall Event center last May 28, 2016. The butterfly theme was chosen to represent the thyroid, which is a butterfly shaped organ found at the base of our necks. 

Little did we know, millions of Filipinos are affected by thyroid disorders, yet very few are aware of them. In a study conducted by the Philippine Society for Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism in 2012, it showed that one in 11 Filipino adults has goiter, and around one in 12 Filipino adults suffers from some form of thyroid disease. Around 8 in every 1000 children worldwide are affected by thyroid disease but only a handful get properly diagnosed and treated.

The “Catching Butterflies: Spotting the Symptoms of Thyroid Disorders in Children” event aims to increase the awareness of the thyroid and the disorders that can affect children and adults. This is because if thyroid hormone imbalances are left undiagnosed and untreated, they can have harmful effect on a child’s brain development, growth and physical maturity. The awareness campaign showed that thyroid disorders are treatable with early screening and proper treatment.

During the event, a panel of experts from the Philippines Society for Diabetes, Endocrinology, and Metabolism, the Philippine Thyroid Association, and the Iodine Global Network conducted a talk on how to recognize and treat thyroid disorders. They also conducted a Free Doctor's Consultation and Thyroid Screening.

The event was not only educational but also fun-filled, aside from the beautiful decorations there were also many other activities that both children and parents enjoyed together. 

There was as on-the spot art competition.

Butterfly face painting

 Butterfly Cookie Art. Took home some for the kids and they liked it!

There were also butterfly clay art, dance performances, Hypo- Butterfly and Hyper-Butterfly Mascots and so much more. How I wish I brought the kids along, I'm sure they would have loved it! 

ETC 2nd Avenue also had a booth where attendees took their photos on the photo wall, posted it to their social media accounts using the hashtags #thyroidawareness and #wearebraver, have it printed at the booth and instantly win a prize. I participated and won a Flawless Stem cell Cleanser, yey! 

There are a lot of people who may have thyroid disorders, but aren’t even aware until it is too late. It is important to have one’s thyroid checked as early as possible, especially if there is family history of the disease, or during pregnancy. Prevention, proper information and early detection will always be better than cure that comes too late.

Here are some important things you should know about Thyroid Disorders:

1. What is Thyroid? 

The thyroid gland is a butterfly-shaped organ located at the base of the neck. The thyroid produces and stores thyroid hormones, which are essential to the normal development of the body, as well as its normal metabolism and function. Thyroid hormones affect practically all systems of the body, from the brain, to the heart, to the stomach, the reproductive system, etc.

2. What are the difference between hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism?
  • Hypothyroidism is when your thyroid doesn't produce enough thyroid hormone. Thus, metabolism is slowed. Patients typically complain of weight gain (even without increasing appetite), cold intolerance, chronic fatigue, sadness/depression, slowed speech patterns, slow heart rate, dry/brittle hair, constipation, and menstrual irregularities.
  • Hyperthyroidism is when there is too much thyroid hormone, and Symptoms are typically opposite that of hypothyroidism. Patients will note weight loss, sweating, insomnia and irritability, fast heart rate and palpitations, hair loss, diarrhea, and menstrual irregularities.
 3. How can thyroid disorders be diagnosed?

Diagnosis is made by a physician based on the results of blood tests- TSH (thyroid stimulating hormone) and thyroid hormone levels in the blood.

4. How to asses your own Thyroid?

Facing a mirror, lift your chin up and inspect your neck. Swallow, and if you see a mass at the base of the neck moving up and down, you may need to consult your doctor for goiter.

Also be aware of the symptoms of hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism, so you can consult a doctor when you note you have them.

5. How can hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism be treated?
  • Hypothyroidism is treated with thyroid hormone replacement therapy.
  • Hyperthyroidism is treated with anti-thyroid drugs, which lower the level of thyroid hormones in the body.
6. Should children be screened for Thyroid problems?

Parents should be aware of the symptoms of thyroid disorders so they can bring their child to the doctor. If they notice mood and behavior changes, difficulty learning, and other signs, consult a doctor.
7. Should pregnant women undergo screening for thyroid problems?

It is recommended that women get screened for thyroid disorders if:
  • previous history of thyroid disorders, thyroid surgery
  • above 30
  • family history of thyroid disorders
  • previous history of pregnancy loss or difficulty getting pregnant
  • living in iodine deficiency areas
8. How can Thyroid disorders affect pregnant women and the unborn baby?

Thyroid disorders, if untreated, can lead to negative outcomes for the mother and child. Conditions like eclampsia and placenta previa can occur. Furthermore, the child might have developmental abnormalities, especially with mental and cognitive abilities. Children with mothers who are iodine deficient or hypothyroid can have lower IQs.
Ask your doctor about thyroid screening if you are pregnant.

9. What type of foods are good for the Thyroid?

People are encouraged to take iodized salt, to avoid iodine deficiency, the most common cause of goiter.

10. Is Thyroid Disorder hereditary?

There is a hereditary component to thyroid problems. If you have a relative who has thyroid disorders, you should regularly have yourself checked.

The event is organized by Merck Inc. in collaboration with ETC 2nd Avenue for the International Thyroid Awareness Week Celebration

Merck is the world’s oldest pharmaceutical and chemical company with headquarters in Darmstadt, Germany. Merck is a leading science and technology company that works to further develop technologies that improve and enhance life – from biopharmaceutical therapies to treat cancer or multiple sclerosis, cutting-edge systems for scientific research and production, to liquid crystals for smartphones and LCD televisions.

Live Beautifully at any Age with HyC150 + Launching of Ask a Doctor Online

As we age, our skin loses moisture and suppleness, our hair becomes weak and dry, and our muscles become stiff making us less energetic. Thus the search for solution and anti-aging products takes place. But with the many anti-aging products nowadays, it's hard to tell which one really works.

I am not getting any younger and I can't stop the time, days and years from passing by but as they say age is just a number, so there's definitely something I can do on how I choose to age. And, even though I am not a beauty expert, as early as now I try to familiarize myself with things that can help my future self. That's why I was glad to have been invited into a Japanese Springtime Themed event at Oracle Aesthetic Clinic, where experts and specialists revealed the secret on how to live beautifully at any age, with the aid of HyC150. 

What is HyC150?

Premium HyC 150 is supplemental drink manufactured by Fine Japan Co. Ltd., it has a potent combination of natural ingredients to combat signs of aging. Only HyC 150 combines the moisturizing effect of 150mg of Hyaluron, also known as nature’s moisturizer, with collagen and ubiquinol, all natural ingredients known for its anti-aging properties. With HyC 150 food supplement, not only does one’s natural beauty becomes enhanced, but being beautiful also means being healthy too. 
HyC150 was given the Gold Award at the 2015 Monde Selection Awards for Diet and Health products. This international recognition is a testament to the superior quality of HyC 150 compared to all other anti-aging supplements in the market today.

Product Content and Benefits: 
  • Hyaluron-  HyC 150 contains 150mg a gel-like substance that moisturizes the body and lubricates the joints and tissues so you can move freely and pain-free. At the same time, the skin is well hydrated to revent wrinkles, while the hair becomes strong and silky.
  • Collagen- It also contains 5,250mg of collagen, the lifting supplement that tightens skin. Our body naturally produces collagen but we lose it as we age. By drinking HyC 150, you are supplied with the amount of collagen needed to repair body tissues and form structure in order to prevent sagging.
  • Ubiquinol-  HyC 150’s 10mg ubiquinol, helps increase the body’s energy. Aside from being an energy-boosting element, ubiquinol is an antioxidant that protects the body from environmental toxins, strengthens the immune system, and prevents hair loss.
Believing that one has to be beautiful and healthy inside and out, HyC 150 is also fortified with Vitamin C, biotin, elastin and pearl coix, making it a powerful drink that must be added to your daily diet.

  • Vitamin C- is a powerful antioxidant that protects the body from several cancer types while providing for a stronger immune system.
  • Elastin - is a protein found in the body’s connective tissue that helps maintain the skin springiness and elasticity. 
  • Biotin - makes hair shiny and scalp healthy.
  • Pearl coix - the right dose of pearl coix will whiten skin to remove dark spots, even acne; and bring out that radiant, youthful glow in you.
Hyc150 is available at selected Watsons stores nationwide and online at Lazada, they also recently opened an online store store for convenient, easy access to its products offering free delivery to all customers nationwide. During the event they also launched the Ask a Doctor, an online conversation with medical experts who are practicing aesthetic medicine. Ask a Doctor is a personal way of getting information from medical experts that is best suited for you. 

 (L-R): Dr. Rudy Apostol (Doctor for Regenerative Medicine & Stem Cell Therapy), Hannah Ruth Sison (former Bb. Pilipinas 1st Runner Up, Hyc150 user), Dra. Em Sevilla (Founder and President of Vine Holistic Medical Aesthetics),  Susan Dimacali (Oracle Beauty Clinic owner) and Mr. Antonio Crisanto (General Manager - BrightRay Enterprises)

Now, your questions regarding ingredients found in food supplements or possible side effects, about aging, skin health and moisturization, and other related issues can be answered. All you have to do is visit the website www.hyc150.com and go to the website’s Ask a Doctor page. Fill in the form with your name, email address and your questions.

Product Review | Doctor J 70% Isopropyl Rubbing Alcohol: Trusted by Hospitals and Households

One of our must have item in the house is a rubbing alcohol and I prefer the 70% Isopropyl among others. We always make sure that there is a big bottle of alcohol in the house and a small handy one whenever we're on the go. Tristan and Athena also got 1 small bottle each in their hygiene kit at school. I taught the kids the importance of hand washing especially before and after eating, using the bathroom and after playing. However, it's almost impossible to do it most especially when we are outdoors, and that is when rubbing alcohol saves the day!

To my delight, I have received a 500ml bottle of Doctor J 70% Isopropyl Rubbing Alcohol together with the Mighty Mom Dishwashing Liquid that I reviewed here. Both brands are from Kohl Industries Corporation.  

This isn't the first time that I've heard about Doctor J. We first came across this brand last April when Athena was confined at University of Perpetual Help Dalta Medical Center here in Las Pinas, her hospital kit includes a small bottle of Doctor J 70% Isopropyl Alcohol. 

And after some research, I found out that Doctor J Alcohol is actually a top quality alcohol-disinfectant known in the Philippine market for a long time already, yes, since 1994! Kohl Industries Corporation has acquired the rights for the brand in June 2002, and in 2003 transformed the Doctor J brand into a leading alcohol-disinfectant of choice by major hospitals in the country. Yes it is, remember it was in Athena's hospital kit? 

So what do I like about Doctor J 70% Isopropyl Rubbing Alcohol?

1. Trustworthy- It's a top choice by major hospitals and used by millions of households, so I put my 100% trust in it.

2. Better formulations-  It contains high quality, non-recycled alcohol making it an effective disinfectant and antiseptic.

3. Contains natural moisturizers- It's gentle so goodbye drying and say hello to soft hands!

4. Clean fragrant scent- It's like a cologne, leaving your hands smelling clean and fragrant for long. *ts fragrance is imported from Grasse, France!

5. Packaging- The one they sent me is 500ml perfect size for a family of 5 and it comes in a pump dispenser which is what I prefer because it's easier to use.

Doctor J is also available in following sizes:
  • 1 Gallon
  • 1 Liter
  • 500mL pump
  • 500mL bottle
  • 250mL
  • 150mL
  • 60mL
There's only one thing I noticed with the pump dispenser, the alcohol leaks on the bottom part of the pump so make sure it's always standing up to avoid it from spilling. That's all. 

Seriously, this is now my new favorite alcohol brand. Will definitely make a purchase once we consumed this bottle they sent me. Have you tried using this yet? If you haven't, I suggest you do and who knows, you might make a switch too just like me!

Where to purchase Doctor J?
  • Robsinsons Supermarket
  • Shopwise, Watsons
  • Rustan’s
  • Wellcome Supermarket
  • AFPCES, Super 8
  • Fisher Supermarket
  • Unimart
  • Makati Supermarket
  • Walter Supermarket
  • CVC Supermarket
  • San Roque Supermarket

Review | Mighty Mom: A Mighty Dishwashing Liquid of Choice For Every Home

Just like a kid who gets all giddy when given a new toy, as a mom, I too get happy and excited when given stuff especially things that can help me in my household chores. And a week ago, I received a household product, a 750ml Mighty Mom Dishwashing Liquid in Lemon variant for me to try and review.

Honestly, it was the first time that I came across this brand and I'm happy because I'm discovering something new. Aside from the Mighty Mom Dishwashing Liquid the package also includes a 500ml Doctor J Isopropyl Alcohol which I reviewed here. Upon receiving the products, I immediately made my own research. These two brands are actually manufactured by KOHL INDUSTRIES CORPORATION.

KOHL INDUSTRIES CORPORATION is a Philippine FDA CGMP, Certified Manufacturing Corporation and is recognized as a trusted manufacturer of high-grade disinfectants, personal care, household products and medical device solutions  in the Philippines. It is proudly Filipino-owned and was incorporated in June 2002 by Mr. Aton C. Atilano.

With its Certificate of Good Manufacturing Practice, Kohl Industries Corporation develops products specially for professional use. Formulated together with an expert team of chemists and pharmacists, their products adhere to the strictest standards set by top hospitals, where only high-level cleansing is accepted. Knowing this, I felt confident that my family will be in good hands.

On my previous post I've mentioned that I don't really like washing the dishes but as a mom and without a helper who else would get the job done? Of course me.....and Jaear, yes we take turns with household chores! But I was the one who got to try the Mighty Mom dishwashing liquid first and shared with him my impression which I will also be sharing with you.

The brand name itself, Mighty Mom Dishwashing Liquid makes it appealing to every mommies and adding to it is the mommy image on the label. Cool! Its packaging also is comparable to those leading brands, its made out of thick durable plastic dispenser with a pump. I prefer pump dispenser the most as it's easier to use. 

On its label, it's stated "Concentrated" and that is why it's frothy and has long lasting bubbles which I find entertaining every time I wash the dishes. Haha! In terms of its scent, since I got the Lemon variant, it's sweet and citrusy. It smells good but just overpowering and leaves a clean fragrant scent on the plates and glasses especially plastic ones. So if you don't want it to leave a smell on, rinse it properly and I suggest you to only use a little amount of dishwashing liquid or you can even dilute it in water. And, because it's concentrated, you can actually save, even a little drop will go a long way, so a bottle will last for a longer time for sure. 

Aside from the Lemon variant, Mighty Mom is also available in endearing scent of Kalamansi which is my favorite, and the newest to the group, Vitamin E infused Soft Skin variant. Can't wait to try them all!

Mighty Mom dishwashing liquid also effectively cleans and cuts grease. Just make sure to properly rinse your dishes also to avoid food residues. What I like the most about Mighty Mom is that it has Anti-bacterial properties not only cleaning our plates and utensils but disinfects it making them germ free as well. Great isn't it?

And another good news, Mighty Mom is easy on the pocket! They are doing an ad campaign on several stores and they also supply this in bundles unlike other dishwashing liquid in the market. 

For SM supermarkets, a 500mL bottle with 2 FREE 250mL pouch is priced at Php88.00 only and a 1 Liter bottle with pump + FREE 3 250mL pouch is priced at Php149.00 only. For Shopwise, a 750mL bottle with 2 FREE 250mL pouch is priced at Php149.75 and a 500mL bottle bundled with another 500mL bottle is priced at Php95.00 only. For Robinsons, a 250mL bottle with 2 FREE 250mL pouch is priced at Php49.75 only. What a great deal! It's definitely worth hoarding for as this can be stored for a long time plus buying this is supporting local products, as this is Proudly Pinoy-owned.

Give it a try mommies, not only are you going to make big savings but you are also ensured that your dishes are clean, deodorized, germ free and that your family is safe! Indeed a mighty dishwashing liquid of choice for Supermoms.

Mighty Mom is currently available in Robinsons Supermarket, SM Supermarket, SM Savemore, SM Hypermarket, Fishermall, APCES, Shopwise, to name a few. It is also available in Marketa, an online market place.
