Ok call me crayyy but like Miss Junkie Poo, I love savory pastry and tuna. *close your eyes, press your lips together and smile* If you did exactly that then you would’ve known the mug Junkie and I sported when we learned that the Jollibee Tuna Pie’s back for a limited time this Lenten Season.
what I purchased with my last money (my debit card was captured!!!)
I first fell in love with the Tuna Pie around 2008 (I won’t forget for rather sentimental reasons) and I would always get it whenever I’m lost in Jollibee (even during training season). Flaky crust, chunky tuna, mushroom and creamy, peppery sauce. Mmmmm.
Whether you’re fasting or just a big fan of the Jollibee Tuna Pie make that dash to the nearest store to get your hands on this filling yet guilt-free treat before it goes MIA again. :)

Last Sunday, Fathers Day, I got all mushy and sentimental. While I share my fondness for beauty and fashion with my mom, what you probably don’t know’s that my dad (aka. Gov) shared his talent and passion for music with me at such a young age. Like all 80s kids, I grew to to singing and dancing Madonna’s Material Girl, Like a Virgin, and Papa Don’t Preach in head to toe denims. More than dancing, I (painfully) enjoyed singing. So much so that he actually purchased this set of 4 (or was it 6?) minus one cassette tapes (with song sheets!) from Sharp for us to sing all weekend at the comfort of our home. Give or take 24 years after we learned our first song together, we still sing Closer You and I (Gino Padilla) whenever we get the chance to hold the mic together. :)
an absolute blast from the past sitting pretty here at home
While it will take a lifetime and one to take this memory off my head, I’m glad that Sharp has one way or another made its way into our home. Because of our support and patronage as consumers, Sharp has reached its centennial mark this 2012!
In celebration of their 100th anniversary this September 15, 2012, Sharp has recently launched two campaigns. One is a CSR campaign slated to pay it forward while the other’s something for us to enjoy.
My SHARP Our FUTURE Campaign
From June 7 to September 15, a total of 100 days, Sharp will make a contribution for every purchase of AQUOS TV and Plasmacluster generator/air purifier. The proceeds will go to their chosen organization that endeavors to support health programs that administer vaccines to ensure that the future generation’s well and healthy.
Anniversary Share II
The Anniversary Share II site’s made out of pure fun! It works like a portal where you can upload photos or videos of anniversaries and other commemorative moments of you, your family and your friends. Once uploaded, the system will convert the photos and videos into a film. The film with then be displayed through the website from 16 June – 15 September 2012. If your photo or video ranks up to the top 5 spots, you will receive Sharp products. The grand prize? A trip to the West Coast, USA await two lucky pairs (four people)! Sweet stuff, eh?
Checkout the Twitter hashtag #Sharp100 and visit the Anniversary Share II site (http://share.sharp100years.com) to learn more about the campaign and how Sharp wants to celebrate their 100th anniversary with YOU!

Remember some of my SPF must haves last year?
initial review here
It’s back in my boudoir this May because I’m bound to have another 9-5 outdoor feat this coming Sunday and I can’t afford to burn nor darken after. It’s only been 3 days since I got my roster back and I’ve been rotating the Powdery White Fair & Light (SPF 47 PA+++) as a makeup primer and Clear Water (SPF 50 PA+++) for my daily run. I bet my colleagues will be thrilled to try out the Super Block Clear Finish (SPF 130 PA+++) variant next weekend because nabbing this much protection has never felt so light and grease-free! Post-outdoor event, I think the Watery Cool Clear & Smooth (SPF 65 PA+++) variant will best protect us because of its cooling and soothing properties. This variant was also my best friend last year when I burned this much (photo here) in Caramoan.
Would you like to experience the highest SPF protection you can get with SunPlay? Have a never-ending summer soiree with me with SunPlay’s Surf’s Up! design your own surfboard contest. If you get lucky, you can win a special SunPlay gift pack! :)

Do you frequently get headaches? I do. I have this nasty cocktail of headache inducing traits and activities:
- bad eyesight — grade + astigmatism
- blog on the go (while in transit en route to the office or home)
- love reading for hours off a tablet or PC
- off-working hours — my shift’s from 12mn ’til 9am
- travel daily during broad daylight after being enclosed in a dark freezing room
Overtime, I got over acute and frequent pangs. Some say I should be thankful but today, whenever I get a headache, it’s already borderline migraine. I’m usually immobile and nauseous. I tear up so bad and couldn’t possibly think. Can you imagine who wins when headache strikes at work? #wawaface
I’ve tried plenty of OTC medicine over the years and while they work, they usually take forever to take effect or they make me fall asleep. Roughly two years ago, one of my managers from London asked me to try this headache medicine from Bayer called Saridon. It claims to cure headaches as fast as 15 minutes. Begging for the lights to be shut off, I popped a tab of Saridon (versus leading brands where you need to take 2 for immediate effect) and hoped for the best. I timed Saridon and it did live up to its promise: it worked as fast as 15minutes, I didn’t feel sleepy, and I didn’t get a recurring headache the latter part of the day. Instant win! Imagine how giddy I was when I found out that it’s now locally available. :) No need for pabilis abroad!
spot Saridon in my Coco Beach toiletries and 911s
Saridon (Triple Action) is an analgesic specially formulated to treat severe headache in as fast as 15 minutes.Each Saridon tablet contains Paracetamol, Propyphenazone and Caffeine, a unique combination that provides effective and long lasting pain relief.
Generic: Caffeine, Paracetamol, Propyphenazone
Indications: For the relief of mild to severe headaches, relief of pain such as headache, toothache, menstrual discomfort, postoperative and rheumatic pain, and for pain and fever associated with colds and flu.
Recommended Dosage: Adults: 1-2 tablets single dose. Adolescents 12-16 years: 1 tablet single dose. If necessary, 3 doses may be taken within 24 hours.
Today, I won’t say I’m addicted to Saridon but let’s just say I don’t leave home without it. It’s also my team’s headache drug of choice whenever the uncalled for happens at work. With numerous service levels to be met on a daily basis, we can’t afford operations to be impaired due to a nasty headache! :)
Going back to my question — do you frequently get headaches? Tell me and answer the questions beneath the cut to win the following:
a versatile Avon Manzinni tote (I love this to bits I got you one too!)
…and a gift pack from our friends from Bayer :)

Plana FORMA, the newest and most effective workout that hit Manila recently hosted a well attended cocktail party for its VIPs, loyal clients, and the press. Just before dusk hit the Taguig City last July 21, Plana FORMA also introduced its newest ambassador, KC Concepcion.
I know what you’re thinking. KC Concepcion’s face is everywhere. When I saw the rest of her photos from the Plana FORMA site I thought — her equally stunning body deserves to be everywhere too!
For someone who seems to have a massive amount of work on her plate, I have to say that her body says otherwise. Some get too thin, others balloon up. Checkout how well-proportioned her body is!

BIG truth: I was filled with hope when I accepted the Listerine Total Care Challenge. Hopeful but not too optimistic. I thought that my oral health’s already okay so what can a new mouthwash do to turn things around, right? Boy I was in for a surprise!
We culminated the six week challenge last 09 July (backlog busted!) by getting our post-challenge dental visit at our chosen Villareal Dental Clinic. I must have broken several bones on my hands, crossing my fingers for good results since we’re supposed to publish our charts. I don’t want to be the guinea pig who failed the challenge! LOL
facing the moment of truth
Ready to see the results?

Apart from looking presentable, my jobs requires me to have fresh breath 24/7. Having bad breath’s always a deal breaker so I make sure that I watch what I eat, never puff a cig, BFR, and gargle after a huge mug of java. :) Without awesome fresh breath, I bet I wouldn’t have the guts to come up to these three masters I absolutely look up to!
Chef Ming Tsai
I’m curious — are you super conscious of your breath being minty fresh too? Spill the beans and let me know how far your fresh breath took you. Share your most memorable experience where fresh breath played a big role in the comment section below and win one out of 2 Listerine Total Care Gift Packs. The winning stories will be selected on Friday, 15 July 2011 and announced the day after. The prizes are available for nationwide shipping via MC Express. Good luck and share those stories ASAP! :)

Listerine challenged me two weeks ago to show you a video of how many Jawbreakers I can break in a minute. I was ready with my props and all but I encountered a very bad sore throat that I was asked to stay off sweets ’til I get my voice back. Now that I’m back on track and ready to shoot, my camera’s low batt naman! Excuses aside, I’d like to share with you the results of this challenge through some snaps. :)
Uhm no. These aren’t marbles. These are candies I need to crush with my teeth.

Let me share a little secret. Once upon a time, I had big bunny teeth. By big bunny teeth I mean my mother despised it every time I pose for the camera like this:
It’s cute and nutty for a while but naturally, as soon as I hit junior high, it became unwanted. It’s not screaming huge and protruding but it’s just wee big for my face. When I turned 15, I wore (for 3 months) this blue schwartz orthodontic appliance to expand my smile line, got my two front teeth finely and precisely cut, and got 6 brackets on my front teeth to seal the deal. Two more months wearing Invisalign and here’s the result.

As promised, I will take you to a 6 week journey on how Listerine will help me positively overhaul my oral health. The first challenge is very simple: see the dentist to find out if I have hidden plaque (yikes!).
I went to the Villareal Dental Clinic at the St. Luke’s Medical Center, Global City. Going to their clinic brought butterflies to my stomach because it took me back to second grade when I first saw one of their dentists at their Medical Towers Makati branch. I was then my mom’s dental plan dependent and I always looked forward to Saturdays when she’d bring me to the clinic for a checkup. It would’ve been awesome if their clinic back then had this to keep me entertained (instead of peeking under the swing doors to snoop over the other patients hehe):
