|The Pop Up Katipunan|
Have you ever heard of container van architecture? If you haven’t, then you’re probably missing out on something. I had the rare opportunity to sleep in a container van turned into a hotel/inn during my previous travel gigs but I hadn’t seen an al fresco mall which had its tenants in a movable container van architecture until I’ve been to The Pop Up Katipunan recently.
Situated right in the heart of Katipunan Avenue in Quezon City, The Pop Up’s dynamic architecture allows itself to become a must-visit place for partying or simply hanging out with friends at night after a grueling work day. It’s also a unique lifestyle mall during the day where family can spend their quality time dining out in one of the establishments.
Do not underestimate the container architecture of The Pop Up Katipunan. One of the many advantages of this unique lifestyle mall is that the container vans can be rearranged in a matter of hours—and could easily transform itself to accommodate fully-functional retail space from its large-scale events place vibe.
I recently toured The Pop Up Katipunan and I’d have to say I was pretty impressed. There were several constructions which are now in full swing such as the Alliance MMA Gym which is said to be owned by popular MMA fighter Brandon Vera, who happens to be a good friend of my Uncle, former UFC MMA fighter, Mark Munoz, better known as “The Filipino Wrecking Machine." Mr. Jeffrey Oh, one of The Pop Up Katipunan owners said that it will even house an acrylic swimming pool on its roof deck.

My first encounter with the mythical Adarna bird happened during my freshman year in high school. Back then, it was an academic requirement to study corrido [a popular narrative song and poetry that forms a ballad.] as part of Philippine literature. Ibong Adarna is a 16th century Filipino epic poem about an eponymous magical bird. The story is commonly attributed to the Filipino poet Jose de la Cruz, better known as “Huseng Sisiw.” However, to this day, the exact authorship is disputed because another legend says it was brought to the Philippines by Miguel Lopez de Legazpi in 1565.

There comes a time in your life that you have to stand up and say, “Enough is enough.” And that’s the day when you decide to change your life for the better. Who doesn’t want to become accomplished? Even the “gifted” and brilliant ones have to pay the price so as to realize their goals in life.
When we fail to eat on time, get enough exercise or sleep between seven to nine hours a day, we’re compromising our health and wellness as we reduce the maximum extent that our body must function. Consequently, the effects in our body may extend and manifest as early warning signs of hair loss.
With this in mind, embracing natural healthy lifestyle is so important to achieve optimal health, best physical condition and healthy full head of hair. Health products made out of natural ingredients are way effective for better healing and maintaining our body’s lifelong function than those of synthetic ones. Rather than investing in those branded shampoos or other hair treatments, there’s a natural way to help arrest hair loss and help remedy its four early symptoms, namely, excessive hair shedding, thinning hair, receding hair line, and bald patches. This is none other than NOVUHAIR, nature’s answer to hair loss.

Cardiovascular diseases are still very much prevalent in the lives of many Filipinos. This is due to the fact that Filipinos love to eat. Each time we gather, there will always be something to eat. And even if we eat something that's supposedly nutritious such as the Ilocano vegetable dish Pinakbet, still it's not as healthy as you think it is. Why is that so? Primarily because we cook our Pinakbet with fermented shrimp paste [Bagoong] which is really salty and we also include chunks of crispy deep-fried bagnet [pork belly] as toppings for our pinakbet. So how would you say that it is a healthy vegetable dish when you have all of these things as part of your ingredients? That's why we are said to be predisposed to CVD and ischemic stroke among many other lifestyle associated diseases.
Have you ever heard of Dyslipidemia? I have not encountered this word until I had recently heard about it when I had attended a bloggers event by Zuellig Pharma and Amgen Philippines to create awareness of CVD and its implications. During the said event, Dr. Lourdes Ella Santos, MD, an Adult Cardiologist and Lipidologist gave a short talk about this alarming condition called dyslipidemia as well as discussed about other risk factors on certain heart diseases and ailments.
