Advocacy for Human Race Against Rotavirus

It's been a privileged to witness the advocacy of Coach Rio de la Cruz last Sunday, January 27, 2013 held at Pryce Plaza Hotel during the Vaccine Congress 2013 called Human Race Against Rotavirus.

By the way, do you know what Rotavirus is all about? It is actually is the most common cause of severe diarrhea among infants and young children- indeed an enemy that we need to fight! Why? Because 4000 children die everyday aged less than 5 years old and in the Philippines statistics show that there are 13 children die everyday because of this rotavirus-related gastroenteritis.

In this race, losing is more than just being the last to cross the finish line but this time, defeat means loss of thirteen precious lives. We need to fight and win for this enemy and stop it before it's to late, if we only quicken our steps to outrun this enemy!

But how to save this children from rotavirus-related death counts? It is through vaccination where we can prevent this fatal disease. The World Health Organization's Strategic Advisory Group of Experts (SAGE) recommends that rotavirus vaccines be included in all national immunization programs, particularly in countries where diarrhea-related deaths account for more than 10% deaths in children younger than 5 years old.

Through their recommendations, I hope it will somehow reduce overall child mortality in the Philippines and win the race against this fatal yet highly preventable disease. Remember that the faster we act against the rotavirus, the more children we save.

Benefits of Switching to Recycled Bags

New innovations designed to protect the environment without compromising daily conveniences are available in a form of a reusable bag. Landfills are a second thought when throwing out products that can be recycled. These very products are used to create new items that are durable and do not emit greenhouse gases. A recycled bag is made of dissuaded plastic bottles and other materials found in landfills to produce a cost effective alternative to collecting plastic bags every time you shop, especially at the grocery store. These bags come in different sizes to accommodate large or small shopping trips. Sturdy, wide handles make these bags easy to carry multiple items and store in a truck to always have on hand. Polypropylene bags are made from continuous fibers that are woven or knitted and converted into a fabric that is very strong. Bags with drawstrings are perfect for outdoor excursions and to help secure items. One of the many benefits of having a reusable bag is printing a custom designs, for adults or kids, on a glossy surface that is bright and easy to see, making the bag an essential advertising tool.

Benefits of Switching to Recycled Bags

Bamboo is the fastest growing woody plant in the world, growing two inches an hour in the perfect conditions. Bamboo bags are an environmentally safe way to become eco-friendly for businesses and consumers. Bamboo totes make shopping trips easy. These soft bags have a wide opening that makes loading and unloading an easy task. Company logos standout against a clean background and can be reused at the same store, showing customer appreciation. Bamboo is very durable and maintenance is as easy as washing the bag in a washing machine. These bags can be stored in a truck or rolled up and stored in a purse. Unlike everyday plastic bags used at grocery stores and other establishments, bamboo is 100% organic and biodegradable. Biodegradable products are broken down by the natural contents of the soil and have a natural anti-bacterial element. The benefit of using a reusable bag is evident after the first shopping trip, not having to carry armloads of thin plastic bags that often do not make it to the recycle can and shows a commitment to a better environment.

Photo: Welcome to my page!!hope you like my inspirational socks
Growing up I loved the stage, but it didn't come easy. Stage fright was something that always held me back and I still remember all the emotions, just like it was yesterday. 

Strangely enough my mom had the perfect solution: She put coins in my socks before one of my competitions, and told me this would help calm me down. 

That day I went on stage with the coins in my socks and little did I know that I would take these coins with me for the rest of my life. 

It wasn't just about the coins, it was what the coins reminded me of.. My mother's words, or maybe it was the magic in them. 

Now I share the magic with you: through "FOOTNOTES"; these socks carry the words and the inspiration that have guided me in my struggles and in my journeys. 

So as you wear them each day, I hope the quotes will guide and inspire you as well to always put your best foot forward - in each step that you take. 

 "FOOTNOTES" is not your ordinary pair of socks. It is inspiration at your feet

                                                                                                                                      -Mark Bautista

Cool right? Every day as you wear these socks, not just you'll be inspired but instead motivated to move and live life to the fullest. Imagine a life's inspiration quotes are printed on it plus the array of different colors of your pairs of socks make it more fun!

Now if you want to purchase Footnotes socks, you can have it in two different types – the ankle and the knee socks. If you wish to avail their limited edition, you can have 7 pair of socks for the price of 1,499.  
Guess what? You're not just only patronizing our very own fellow Kagayanon's products but in a way you're helping the M.A.C Foundation, in every purchases you made- 10 pesos will go to the said foundation.

Now, this is what I've got....."Focus and Win"

So what are you waiting for? Grab your pair of inspirational socks by simply visiting www.footnotes.ph and lodge your orders NOW!

We're Sisters!

“Sister is probably the most competitive relationship within the family, but once the sisters are grown, it becomes the strongest relationship.”
  She is your mirror, shining back at you with a world of possibilities. She is your witness, who sees you at your worst and best, and loves you anyway. She is your partner in crime, your midnight companion, someone who knows when you are smiling, even in the dark. She is your teacher, your defense attorney, your personal press agent, even your shrink. Some days, she’s the reason you wish you were an only child. — Barbara Alpert 

Indeed, sisters are the perfect best friends!

New Hair for 2013

I usually had my hair done every January of every year that is why I went to Jessie Mendez Salon (my fave salon) yesterday  after we had our family lunch date. I told my hair cutter Abba just to put a volume/body out from my plain, long and not shiny hair. Now, this is how it looks like:

I guess, I need to undergo hair treatment like hot oil or hair cellophane in order to have a voluminous long and shiny hair this time! Hope fairy hobmother would grant my wish. :)

Happy New Year!

Beauty, wealth, power, love, marriage, and pleasure are good things, but they’re not the best. The best is loving God and taking in His love—bringing Him glory and making Him our friend for life. That leads to the best possible life because it gives us satisfaction and joy now (John 10:10), and it’s what Christians are going to be doing forever. - odb

Have a blessed 2013 ahead of us!
