Kodanda Archery Range Makati: A Good Way to Develop Focus + Relieve Your Stress!

I'm not really an athletic type of person but I'm a big fan of sports. I've always been fascinated with archery ever since I saw Legolas' character (played by actor Orlando Bloom) on J.R.R Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings movie adaptation. So when I was given the chance to try it, I decided to grab the chance. Unfortunately, I've also been experiencing muscle spasm on my left arm during the time of my visit so it was my beloved Kyle who tried a hand at it. It was his first time and he was really very excited. Whether you have a bow already or you’re interested in trying archery for the first time, Kodanda Archery Range is the best place to start. “Archery range” refers to a space designed for shooting bows and arrows. 

Even his Royal Highness, Prince William tried his archery skills.

It turned out that the three industry giants--Unilever, through its number one laundry brand, Surf, Smart Communications and Cebuana Lhuillier had come together to renew their commitment to champion environmental sustainability.

When jet setter and entrepreneur Teresa Herbst learned about using acupuncture for cosmetic purposes in order to defy early signs of aging along with its other health benefits, she really took time off her busy schedule to go to Japan and experience it herself. It was in Japan that she met one of the most sought after and renowned licensed acupuncturist Kokoro Nakahara. " It was extremely difficult to schedule an appointment with Kokoro Nakahara since he've very in demand in Japan and has a lot of clients. But I was glad to have had the chance to do so.

Oral B launches Smile Pilipinas

Smiling happens without much thought. When you watch a friend do something silly or embarrassing, you smirk. When you crush asks you something that makes your heart skip, you can't help but grin. And when you are recognized for a job well done or you had aced an exam, you beam. Smiling is a very natural response that shares our happiness with others. Unbeknownst to many, smiling also triggers activity in your brain. Yep, there's a serious mind-body connection there, in your left frontal cortex to be exact, which is—not surprisingly—the area of your brain that registers happiness. Our face has 44 muscles that allow more than 5,000 different types of expressions, many of which are smiles. Unfortunately oral care is not a priority among Filipinos and we are facing a very serious situation. Based on a research study, 77% have never been to a dentist. This is an obvious severe health issue because it affects an individual's identity, confidence and productivity. The good news is that an initiative is being made with the combine sources of Oral B, University of the Philiplines' College of Dentistry and UP Dental Alumni Association, Smile Pilipinas came about.

Pantene 3 Minute Miracle Conditioner Product Review

I'm quite adventurous when it comes to my hair. Since I was a kid, I must have tried almost every hairstyle there is: from the boy-cut Demi Moore 'do during her 90's hit film Ghost to apple cut, telephone curly tresses, undercut, long hair, to safe ones like one-length--I seemed to have tried it all at one point in my life. After having finished college, I remember being giddy not only because I was able to received my diploma, but also because I would finally have that freedom to have my hair colored.

ToppCock for Men's Hygiene Product Review for Your Man's Private Part

When I first heard about ToppCock, I couldn't believe it's such a name brand for men's hygiene. But after sometime, I reckon, if women had feminine wash, it's easy to see that men had those needs as well. Yes, you are reading this article right--there's a leave-on gel for your man's private/intimate part. So when I was given the chance to review these products, I was both excited for my Uncle who would be my "guinea pig" for this product review since these products are made exclusively for men. 

 ToppCock claims to have an old world product backed by a revolutionary new science to keep man parts clean and fresh. ToppCock "Silver" for one, uses proprietary for ulation that contains precious metal silver in nano-particle form, it also contains healing ingredients such as tea tree oil and aloe. I used to think it's only gold that's being used for aesthetic purposes, but now these products uses silver. So why silver? ToppCock based their products on a research that silver has been used for thousand of years as an effective anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, and anti-viral. It's completely safe, reliable and all natural. And through a  recent innovative science, silver has been made into nano-particalized to make them even more effective.
