Press release: The rising cost of living these days demands that we look for ways to consume less energy to save up on electric bills. Global warming, a concern on a much bigger scale, implores us to use energy-efficient technology to lessen our carbon footprint. There are several things in our lifestyles that we can change to save energy – and all of them are quite simple and easy to implement. One tried and tested way to save energy is to unplug all electronic device when not in use. Turning them off but keeping them plugged consumes “phantom load” which means these devices still consume energy even when you’re not using them. Another energy-saving tactic is to change your light bulbs with more energy-efficient kinds like LED. They may cost more to buy, but they last at least ten times longer and consume about 75% less energy compared to usual light bulbs. Simple habits like making sure your refrigerator door can save you loads of energy. Placing your refrigerator and air conditioner in strategic areas in the room – away from heat-generating devices at all costs – can also save your appliances from working too hard and therefore consuming more electricity than normal.
Upgrading your old appliances to energy-efficient ones is also a fantastic way to save energy. Old appliances always consume a lot of energy compared to their newer counterparts. If you’re looking to upgrade to save on energy, reduce electricity consumption, and save the environment, look no further than Sharp Philippines’ lineup of J-Tech Inverter Refrigerator and Split-Type Air Conditioner.

“You have diabetes.” Those three words continued to sting right into my ears from the time they’ve pricked my finger and got some blood sample up to the time I went home that evening. I know I’ve taken my health for granted and I’ve got no one else to blame but myself. I’ve type 2 diabetes—onset diabetes for adults, the kind of sickness for those who like me must’ve taken their health for granted. Diabetes is a lifelong chronic condition that affects the body’s ability to use the energy found in found. For non-diabetics, the sugar and carbohydrates in the food we consumed are transformed into glucose, which the cells absorb in the bloodstream with the help of the hormone called insulin. But for diabetics like me, it’s a different story. We do not produce or do not have enough insulin in the body, hence, we can’t absorb the glucose, which creates a build-up in the blood and often leads to more serious illnesses.

I used to wear braces back in high school up until I was in college. My orthodontic said I had very sensitive teeth. I suffer from pangingilo and no matter how I salivate over unripe mango and bagoong, I cannot eat and enjoy such food because I would feel a sharp shooting pain when I brush my teeth if I allow myself to eat that. Luckily, I’ve discovered the wonders of using Sensodyne. Now, even if I have thin enamel, Sensodyne helps me to eat whatever I want without having to suffer from the discomfort caused by sensitive teeth.

|Avida Towers Altura Tower 2|
I've always been a 'Northern' girl, meaning to say that I live somewhere North. I've had friends who were able to experience living in the Southern part of Metro Manila and they all claim that living way up South is one of the best decisions they had ever made. So what is it about Southern living that lures people to pack their bags and relocate in the South? They say that southern living is more cool and relaxed as compared to the North. This is how Avida Land envisions Avida Towers Altura Tower 2 would be. The sequel to high-rise residential development within the South Park District, it perfectly captures the essence of Southern living.

Joining Brotzeit's Kinder Koche was the last hurray of summer for Kyle. As all my friends know, I'm already a working mom since March of this year, so usually I no longer have the time to plan what activities that Kyle can do for this vacation. I used to be very 'OC' [read: obsessive compulsive] when it comes to matters like schedule especially for Kyle. As early as January, I would carefully plan what productive activities he can do during vacation. But as it seems, ever since I've started working again, I no longer have the luxury of time to do those.
