In a political party when winners came from one camp, for sure working would be easier. But in a situation wherein a husband and wife wins, lucky for their constituents because for sure everyone will be treated as a family.
This is the situation now particularly in San Jose Del Monte, Bulacan having Mayor Arthur Robes and Congresswoman Florida "ate Rida" Robes as the head of their town. There are a lot of projects now being pushed and  more activities for its people, it was easier for them to make things happen because they have one goal and one vision.

This tandem is also comparable to that of Tacloban husband and wife tandem Richard Gomez and Lucy Torres-Gomez as they work hand in hand for thr improvement and development of Tacloban.

Indeed, the people of SJDM are blessed to have "parents" who are not just hard working but also God-fearing and will continue to strive for the betterment of their community.

Ajinomoto Philippines launched its product AJI SAVOR ON RICE together with its new endorsers MARCO, SOPHIA and CHUNSA with special co-host KUYA SAWA.


Aji on Rice is a rice topping that is delicious and an affordable way to add calcium on one's diet. Inspired by Japanese Furikake, this product is a blend of ready-to-eat dried umami food ingridients like malunggay leaves, toasted sesame seeds and meaty beef or chicken flavored granules that is used to season rice. Each pack is gooe enough for one cup of rice.


Rice is known as our staple food in the Philippines, thus this product hopes to add more calcium into the Filipino diet. During the 8th National Nutrition Survey, the Food and Nutrition Research Institute recorded high inadequacies of calcium intake across all age groups. It is deemed alarming in particular with the younger population since calcium is one of the key nutrients required for proper growth and development.

It’s an OctoberFresh Month with World Chicken and Egg Day 2019 and a First Birthday Party all in one Celebration

Bounty Fresh, the leading provider of chicken and premium egg products is celebrating OctoberFresh this month, the brand’s third annual celebration of World Chicken and Egg Day. The event, which was exclusively organized by Bounty Fresh in the country, stays true to its original goal when it was first celebrated here in 2017—to raise awareness about the nutritional value of eggs and other chicken products as well as build appreciation for their contribution to our everyday diet. Specifically, Bounty Fresh advocates for consumers to develop the habit of selecting quality and freshness when shopping, qualities that their #Lakingfarmfresh products have.

Bounty Fresh, the sole provider of #Lakingfarmfresh chickens, is the perfect player to head the campaign. The brand produces blemish-free eggs and other breaded products that are strictly produced using only state-of-the-art, ISO-certified technology and processes. This year though, the brand promises to make the event bigger with its #ChickyMinute campaign, a very cheeky—pun intended—digital series of films that follows the adventure of the brand’s ambassador Chicky. Chicky is set to celebrate the first birthday of her egg “Eggy” on October 12, which is also the highlight activity of this year’s World Chicken and Egg Day.

Ms. Patricia Cheng-Lim, Assistant Vice President for Marketing of Bounty Fresh has this to share about this year’s event. “Our yearly OctoberFresh is dedicated to our customers who continuously patronize our products. As a brand, we take our commitment to continuously bring happiness to Filipino families so we have prepared a day full of fun and surprises that everyone can enjoy.”


In addition to Chicky who was first introduced last year, Bounty Fresh also brought in a new ambassador who will make her new adventures much more interesting. Helping Chicky throw the perfect birthday party for Eggy is none other than celeb icon and mom Jolina Magdangal.

Eggy’s Wonderful First Birthday and the grand celebration of World Chicken and Egg Day will be filled with exciting events, contests, and performances that the whole family will surely enjoy. The event, which will be held at the TriNoma Activity Center will be opened to the public at noon until the evening. Parents and children alike are invited to participate in exciting events like the Star Hatchievers which invites participants to showcase their one of a kind talents. Other exciting activities like special shows for kids will also be held for Eggy’s first birthday party.

The event also promises exciting deals and prizes for the attendees. Several raffle draws will be held, including a grand prize that will grant a lucky winner a P100,000 tax-free grand prize! Participants only need to purchase Bounty Fresh products during the event to get a chance to win the grand prize.

The third World Chicken and Egg Day is promised to be grander than its previous celebrations, and Bounty Fresh promises to keep to this trend for its succeeding events. Ms. Twinkle Magbag, Bounty Fresh’s First Vice President for Marketing shares, “Every family deserves to be LAKING FARMFRESH. We highly encourage everyone to be more discerning of their choices. So let’s revive the tradition of home-cooking with our fresh take on what’s best for our family through the guaranteed quality, safety and freshness of our Bounty Fresh products.

Similar to its past years of celebration, the Philippine World Chicken and Egg Day event is also being simultaneously celebrated in other parts of the world like Australia, the UK, USA, Brazil, France and neighboring Asian countries like Vietnam and Indonesia, to name a few.

November 5, 2019 - Manila Hotel
San Jose Del Monte, Bulacan Mayor Arthur Robes attended the awarding ceremony and received the Seal Of Good Local Governance Award from DILG.


In a quick interview, Mayor Art says he was very happy and proud to receive this award in behalf of all those people who helped the LGU in achieving the goal of good governance. He also said it was not easy and they encountered a lot of challenges during the process, but with the help of the Barangays and everyone who contributed, they managed to do the big improvements as smooth as possible.


Now that the award was given, the challenge is on how to maintain, but the good Mayor said they still have a lot of plans for SJDM Bulacan before the year ends and the award would serve as an inspiration to continue to do more. Also, the Mayor is having his Birthday on Novemeber 6th and will have a small salo-salo to celebrate.

I have a friend who always travels to different provinces for work and who is still able to take care of her family and manage her household well. I’ve wondered if she was some kind of a mutant or superhero because I, on the other hand, only have myself to take care of but everything is still a mess half the time.

She let me in on a little secret when I finally asked her one day: She has this trusty mobile wallet app that lets her do things pronto whenever, wherever she is. GCash has been her sidekick for quite a while, allowing her to do the things she needs to do even if she is far from home like paying all the utility bills on time, buying load for her children and sending them their school allowances on time.


Curious about this digital wallet, I finally downloaded the app a couple of weeks ago. Every year, I go home to the province on All Saints Day to pay respects to my deceased grandparents, and I needed something to help me ensure that even if I am away, I can attend to any urgent financial needs back in Manila.

When I finally had time to study the mobile wallet app, I discovered that sending money from one GCash account to another is the easiest among the app’s innovative features. You just need to enter the mobile number of the recipient and the amount you want to send. This is the most useful feature for me because I frequently do bank transfers—an errand I don’t look forward to at all—and with GCash having nearly 40 partner banks, I can finally do it from a mobile app.

With just a few taps on the phone, the money is transferred real-time at the speed of a text message. It’s perfect for people always on the move—no need to go to the bank and endure the long lines there just to do a single transaction. No wonder my friend manages just fine despite her busy schedule at work.

She told me that she required all her kids to have the GCash app installed in their phones so that she can easily send their school allowances while she was away. And if they needed physical cash, they can conveniently cash out the money at partner outlets, which are easy to spot.

Among GCash’s thousands of partner outlets include Puregold, Palawan Express, Tambunting, Villarica and RD pawnshops, Bayad Center and SM Business Center.

Now that I’ve also GCash on my phone, I can get on that bus this Friday and take some time off to remember the dear ones who have passed without worrying about bank errands. Who knows, maybe I can finally put some order in my daily life as well (particularly making bank transfers and paying the bills on time) even when I’m on the go.

ON YOUR WAY TO THE PROVINCE FOR ALL SAINTS DAY? BUT FIRST GCASH

Busy saving the world; got no time to go to the bank?

Just like the person Coldplay sang about, I am not a superhero with superpowers. But I like to think that with what I do at work everyday, I can soon accumulate enough goodwill to ease the plight of our planet.

The whiteboard in the office is groaning with a full schedule each month. The team has their respective assignments and responsibilities. Since the team consists of four people, it goes without saying that each one takes on more than the JD allows.

I take care of the communication aspect of our work. From the time I wake up to the time I sleep (if it’s possible), I eat and breathe comms, comms, comms.

Take a look at what my day looks like:

7 a.m. – Scan for news, write-ups, mentions of our organization
8 a.m. – Check out messenger apps for any client concerns
9 a.m. – Get up, cook and prepare my little boy for school
10:30 a. m. - Drop off at school
11 a. am. - Gym
12:30 p. m. - Lunch
1:45 p. m. – Pick up from school
2:30 p. m. – Prep my son for nap time
3 p. m. – Attend events, meet with clients
8 p.m. – Go home
9 p.m. – Prep my son to bed
11 p.m. – Check online stories and some youtube time

You may ask, “Is that for real?” or “Seriously?!” The answer is YES.

As you can see, the schedule does not include time for friends and my other obligations—paying bills, paying for things I order online, or (even if it is rare), booking Airbnb. What’s a 30-something-year-old got to do? Hire an Andy to do my bidding? Sadly, I’m no Miranda Priestly. Besides, I’m too busy saving the world, I got no time to go to the bank.

The good news is that there’s GCash I can depend on to do the more mundane stuff in life. I am a fan of the GCash Money Transfer; I can send or pay money on my phone anytime, anywhere.

Sending money via GCash is a breeze:
1. Open the app.
2. Look for the Send Money icon.
3. Choose the bank to send payment.
4. Log in the account details and amount.
5. Wait for confirmation.

Bottomline: I can fulfill my obligations and still save time AND money (GCash money transfer is FREE). I figure, if I want to change the world, I need to start changing my financial habits. Going cashless is that ONE big step.

GCASH Saves The Day!

For more than 20 years, Healthway Medical has continued to make a name in the Philippines as a leader in preventive healthcare, offering customers various medical checkups that come in numerous package offerings.

In showing the way to Filipinos toward a healthier lifestyle, Healthway Medical currently has three product packages: Basic 5, PrimecheQ and HealthcheQ. Basic 5 covers the Annual Physical Exam (APE), PrimecheQ is designed to ensure healthy aging in one’s prime years, and HealthcheQ is a premium brand of executive check-up that offers comprehensive medical tests with pampering treats. These have remained successful in providing the utmost health care needs of clients’ and patients’ needs. However, after studying the market’s demand, Healthway determined there is already a need to come up with more packages.

Thus, Healthway launched recently at the Shangri-La Plaza in Mandaluyong City a new executive check-up set dubbed “Healthy Lifestyle Bundles” that offers a variety of packages customized for customers’ lifestyle needs. It includes science-based personalized coaching and medical consultation to help start and maintain new healthy behaviors. It comes in 6 packages: WellCheQ, PhysicalCheQ, WeightCheQ, HeartCheQ, DiabetesCheQ and SportsCheQ, all designed to help patients achieve a healthy and balanced lifestyle.

WellCheQ provides patients a full evaluation of their health via a comprehensive executive check-up, while PhysicalCheQis a comprehensive medical examination package that evaluates the status of one’s health

As a response to the growing number of weight, heart and diabetes health issues among Filipinos, Healthy Lifestyle Bundles suggests WeightCheq, HeartCheq, and DiabetesCheq, all relevant tests designed to help patients screen or monitor their weight, heart and blood sugar levels.

Even professional and non-professional/recreational athletes will also find the Healthy Lifestyle Bundles’ SportsCheQ very appropriate as it gives special care to the sports enthusiast by thoroughly evaluating their physical condition. 

All these packages are beneficial to combat self-inflicted diseases like diabetes, hypertension and obesity, all preventable through Healthway’s Preventive Health Cycle: embracing the “SEED” Lifestyle (Sleep, Eat Right, Exercise, De-Stress), conducting a quick self-check and consulting a medical professional regularly.

Also present during the launch were Healthway Medical’s partners such as Fitness Army and Nestlé Philippines, and one of its brand ambassadors, professional athlete JV Wong, who is also Chief Executive of People Ignite, an organization and development company in the country.

Know more about Healthway Medical’s Healthy Lifestyle Bundles and get your way towards a healthier lifestyle.

SLEEP is as important as work or waking up and even other activities that we do everyday. Most of us take it lightly to have a very restful one every single day. I had my share of sleepless nights, I self-declared to have insomnia and would usually sleep at around 3 to 4am. I thought maybe I wasn't too tired or whenever I feel like sleepy at 8pm, things to do just pops up my mind and my sleepiness leaves me. Yes, that was my sleep routine (not a good one I know) for the past how many years or so.


I was excited to know more about MR. Big Pillows when I was invited to its launch at SMX Convention Center. During the presentation, I learned that pillows should also be appropriate for our body type and weight which means my pillow can't be the same as my husbands' and my sons'. And not having the correct pillow can also be the cause of not having a good night sleep. Mr. Big Pillows is new here in the Philippines and is currently displayed at SM MAll of Asia, SM North EDSA, SM Megamall and SM Makati.
If you happen to be near these malls, please kindly check them out because it is really something that we should be educated about. (More of the information HERE)


Why am I encouraging you to check it out at SM Dept Stores? I had the privilege to take home a Junior Size for my 4 year old, It was pricey I am telling you but now that we've tried, I must say it is so worthy of the long term effects. The launch happened about a month ago and I am just writing this one now because I really wanted to see if it really does what it claims to be. My son loves the pillow, he has a baby pillow that he doesn't want to let go, we already bought him several others that we think suits his age. We got one with his favourite color, favourite cartoon character, even different shapes, you name it we have a bed full of pillows and maybe costs just the same as a MR. BIG Junior Pillow when combined.










The MR. BIG Pillow for a month now, has been doing it's wonders, my son sleeps well and does not get up in the wee hours of the morning just to change pillows or position. Okay here's the thing, I tried his pillow one time, I know I am not supposed to but I really wanted to feel and try it. I had one of the best sleep ever, straight one, when I woke up my husband even scolded me for using the Junior Pillow lol! So now, I am slowly saving up for the actual pillow that suits me and the hubby so we can let go of the many pillows that we have in bed. Don't take my word for it, try to visit and just try the pillows that they offer.



AKEMI their sister company which holds very good quality of bedsheets are also available in SM Department Stores, check out the information HERE. Haven't tried the bedsheet yet because the gift that they gave was of a different size. But by the looks and feel of it, it will definitely look elegant and classy in any bedroom because of their very neutral and nature inspired shades that they offer.

If you happen to drop by any of their shops, let me know your thoughts on the comment section down below.

BACSI BROTHERS recently opened its newest branch in Ayala Malls Marikina. The said event was attended by no other than their celebrity endorser TONI LABRUSCA. Customers were treated to a few games, a mini meet and greet and a photo opportunity for those who bought meals from BACSI BROTHERS.


I also had the opportunity to try their famous Bacon-Sinangag-Itlog priced at Php 65 per bowl. The serving I believe is enough for the budget, I am not just into the extra creamy buttery sauce they added on top of the whole silog meal, maybe next time I can ask them to not include it on my next meal. The Corn-Wrap at Php 75 is something else, it was good with scrambled  egg inside, it did go well with their wrap idea kinda like the shawarma. Check them out and have a taste of this very quick yet fulfilling meals from BACSI BROTHERS.


Meanwhile, Toni is set to do a movie with Vice Ganda for MMFF 2019, asked what his role was, he doesn't know yet but was confident that Vice won't make hime do things that could possibly put him in an uncomfortable situation. He is also getting ready because the move will sure be a comedy type and he is unsure if he's funny enough to pull through it. Well for me he's doing great in terms of acting in his teleserye MEA CULPA (Sino'ng May Sala) I am religiously watching it because I love the story (maisingit ko lang lol!).  For sure Toni will be a great addition to the Vice Ganda movie coming out this December.

TONI LABRUSCA FOR BACSI BROTHERS | chubbychitchat



BACSI BROTHERS recently opened its newest branch in Ayala Malls Marikina. The said event was attended by no other than their celebrity endorser TONI LABRUSCA. Customers were treated to a few games, a mini meet and greet and a photo opportunity for those who bought meals from BACSI BROTHERS.


I also had the opportunity to try their famous Bacon-Sinangag-Itlog priced at Php 65 per bowl. The serving I believe is enough for the budget, I am not just into the extra creamy buttery sauce they added on top of the whole silog meal, maybe next time I can ask them to not include it on my next meal. The Corn-Wrap at Php 75 is something else, it was good with scrambled  egg inside, it did go well with their wrap idea kinda like the shawarma. Check them out and have a taste of this very quick yet fulfilling meals from BACSI BROTHERS.
