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.

Avail of the many health and wellness services of Healthway Medical in their clinics located at Alabang Town Center, Festival Supermall, Greenbelt 5, Market! Market!, Robinsons Place Manila, Shangri-La Plaza, and SM North EDSA The Block.

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.

You may think that sleeping is just a way to relieve you off your tiredness and a reprieve for a long day. Research shows that people tend to overlook the way they sleep. Having a bed and using just any type of pillow might not get you the quality of sleep you need.

There’s a myriad of choices when it comes to selecting a pillow but how do you choose the right pillow for your body type? An expert went out of his way to learn and develop a specialty pillow to address this concern.

Mr. Chawakit Kaoien, founder of Mr. Big Pillow is a physical therapist who spent years working in the ICU of a hospital’s respiratory unit and was in-charge of bedridden critical care patients and see to it that they are kept comfortable and could breathe properly. This led him to develop a brand of pillows that would benefit every individual.

Over the years, Chawakit hacked the right density of pillows as well as its best position to address your sleeping concerns. Every individual is different, thus, we cannot conform to just one type of pillow.

Here are cause and effect of using the wrong pillow:
1. You might think that waking up in the wrong side of the bed caused you that neck pain, wrong! Using incorrect pillow puts a strain in your neck, thus, causing that stiff and painful neck in the morning.
2. Can’t sleep? Is it really because of your caffeine intake or you might think you develop a condition
called insomnia. Think again, improper positioning and height of your pillow might be causing
uneasiness that causes you to toss and turn throughout the night.
3. If your partner complains about your snore, then it might be time to change your pillow. Snoring is
usually caused by blockage of nasal passages. By improving your sleep position, you can also alleviate your snoring.
4. Consistent Headache. This is such a nasty way to start your day especially if you have that important meeting ahead. Your frequent headache might be caused by wrong elevation of your pillow, tension headaches happen when your neck muscles are strained.
5. Mental Block. Sleep deprivation causes forgetfulness and lack of creativity. Improve your brain
function by using the right pillow that can get you a good night’s rest.
By using the appropriate pillow according to your height and weight as well as each individual’s
condition, you can maintain a good quality of sleep and overall health. Use this test to assess which type of pillow is right for you: http://www.mrbigbestfit.com/phone/index.html


Incidentally, Mr. Big will be having a sale at the SM Home Fair happening on June 28-30, 2019 at the SMX, Mall of Asia complex. Huge discount of up to 50% off awaits. Plus get a special Halogel pillow worth Php1899 for a single receipt purchase of Php5000.

Mr. Big pillows are available in selected SM Homes. Visit Mr. Big Pillow Philippines FB page

Over the years, Chawakit hacked the right density of pillows as well as its best position to address your sleeping concerns. Every individual is different, thus, we cannot conform to just one type of pillow.

Here are cause and effect of using the wrong pillow:
1. You might think that waking up in the wrong side of the bed caused you that neck pain, wrong! Using incorrect pillow puts a strain in your neck, thus, causing that stiff and painful neck in the morning.
2. Can’t sleep? Is it really because of your caffeine intake or you might think you develop a condition
called insomnia. Think again, improper positioning and height of your pillow might be causing
uneasiness that causes you to toss and turn throughout the night.
3. If your partner complains about your snore, then it might be time to change your pillow. Snoring is
usually caused by blockage of nasal passages. By improving your sleep position, you can also alleviate your snoring.
4. Consistent Headache. This is such a nasty way to start your day especially if you have that important meeting ahead. Your frequent headache might be caused by wrong elevation of your pillow, tension headaches happen when your neck muscles are strained.
5. Mental Block. Sleep deprivation causes forgetfulness and lack of creativity. Improve your brain
function by using the right pillow that can get you a good night’s rest.
By using the appropriate pillow according to your height and weight as well as each individual’s
condition, you can maintain a good quality of sleep and overall health. Use this test to assess which type of pillow is right for you: http://www.mrbigbestfit.com/phone/index.html

SWIMMING is an essential survival skill period. I believe in this one too. I can float and swim but not in deep waters, I panic when I can no longer reach the floor. My husband too knows how to float and swim a bit but easily panics when water level becomes too deep. That is why we discussed even before we had our child that SWIMMING LESSONS is a must for our future kids.

About 3 years ago, Bert Lozada Swim School (BLSS) had a media event and invited us to introduce swimming to our then almost a year-old baby. This year now that he is 4, another event invite for BLSS came to my inbox and I was thrilled to once again be part of it. This time we will take swimming lessons for our little boy seriously, because this is an important skill, so mommies and daddies enroll your kids while they are young so they will be more confident in water.
