Kawit Celebrates Christmas with a Historical Touch

This years wonderful time of the year is coming and Filipinos are here to join yet another celebration of this festive season. Despite the hassle and the rush around the busy and traffic streets and establishments, everyone is checking their Christmas list not just twice but three times!

There are a few sights and sounds where we can feel the true spirit of a Filipino Christmas especially with our loved ones.

Christmas plays a huge part in the Filipino tradition and culture. Make the holidays better by visiting some of the most historic sites in the country with your friends and loved ones. Kawit in Cavite is one of the most sought-after historical sites in the country today and it is one that you should visit this Christmas Season.

Kawit, Cavite is home to some of the most historic sites in the Philippines. This is where the Aguinaldo Shrine is situated wherein the Philippine flag that we know of today was first waved publicly announcing our Independence by none other than the first Filipino President Emilio Aguinaldo. There’s also a lot to learn about our first president and how he has lived his life and times during the revolution era. Beyond the Shrine also are other sights to see including the “Museo ni Baldomero Aguinaldo” hailed towards the cousin of Emilio Aguinaldo and grandfather of Cesar Virata who as a prime minister in the 1980s.

Kawit also boasts rich crafts and delicacies including the Pandayan or the local blacksmithing shop. Blacksmithing is an endangered craft that needs to be promoted and preserved. The local Pandayan is still active and you can still buy handcrafted knives and bolos made the same way during the Revolutionary era. The Christmas specialty – Puto Bumbong or rice cake with shaved coconut and muscovado sugar is a staple food trip stop that shouldn’t be missed when visiting Kawit.

Kawit celebrates the Christmas season through a spectacular display of lights at the Aguinaldo Shrine and Freedom Park. The Christmas lighting event was held last December 14, 2019 and a number of distinguished guests and celebrities joined in celebration of the event. A fireworks display and lighting of the Christmas lights at the Freedom park was also held.

Make sure to visit Kawit Cavite this Christmas Season and enjoy the season filled with pride of our own heritage and historical sites in Kawit. The Municipality of Kawit welcomes everyone who wishes to visit Kawit during the Christmas season.

Try this product! It might work on you too.

I’ve been careful in double checking and researching about any skincare products before using one since the time I’ve had an awful experience with 2 different brands.

Last October 2019, I started to try out a new product I found out online. It’s a Centella Foam Cleanser with a thick cream for acne-prone skin that I heard instantly soothes irritated skin and calms redness without causing dryness or flaking.

I’ve posted about So Natural‘s Centel Acne Clear Wash Foam recently and I can’t wait to let you know what I think about it and my take on my experience using it. Since I got it, late October 2019. I started using it and it worked wonders.

First, the packaging. The box looks good. It looks fancy. Silver tube that holds the product is as fancy. The quality of the tube is great because it’s very durable. The design is minimal and I love it.

The only thing I want to enhance is a little manual or an instruction written in English, but it’s not a big deal. We can always ask google, right?

Here’s the important details about So Natural‘s Centel Acne Clear Wash Foam in English:

FULL REVIEW

First week of November I felt like nothing else is happening since I started using it  besides cleansing my face deep into its pores, which is a great by the way. I love the feeling after I wash it off because I feel refreshed and I feel like my face has rejuvenated. So I continued using it and in the middle of the 2 weeks with it, I notice that my dark spots are lightening up.

Summary of what it did to my skin:

  • Lessens my acne outbreak
  • Cleanses my pores thoroughly
  • Lightened my dark spots
  • Mended the my redness
  • Helped moisturize when it became dry

Below are the unfiltered and unedited photos of the result of one month using So Natural‘s Centel Acne Clear Wash Foam:

Untitled-1
Redness has been mended, lots of dark spots are gone and acnes were lessened.
2
The big acne is definitely gone and the dark spots lightened.
3
My face has become lighter and cleaner.

I am so glad that this product worked. It’s really hard to find a product that works and leaves me with a great result. I will definitely buy more when the tube I have is empty. I can’t express how happy I am with the result. I hope this continues.

I didn’t expect that my skin can glow like this.

I hope you like this review. If you want to try their products, visit So Natural‘s website here.

May y’all have a natural glowing skin everyday!

Top 7 Important Steps to do to Age Healthily and Young Looking

Dr. Zhen-Yu Chen, one of the Herbalife Nutrition Advisory Board Members shared the steps we need to take and ways we need to do to achieve a healthy mind and body as we age.

More often than not, aging is a topic that we would rather avoid rather than discuss head-on, as our latter years are often associated with the loss of independence, sickness, loneliness and social isolation. With Asia Pacific being one of the fastest aging regions in the world today, it’s only a matter of time that we, as individuals, have to look at aging in the eye, and consider with care, what we can do to live a longer and more fulfilling life into our golden years.

By 2050, older persons aged 60 and above will make up 24 percent of the population in Asia. At the same time, the Korea population is aging faster than the rest of the world, and the country is on track to become the world’s most aged society by 2067. This means that many of those in their 20s and 30s today would also have moved into the ranks of the elderly by then as life expectancy continues to improve with better quality care.

Taking an advance reality check, how could we then put ourselves on the path towards healthy aging earlier on in life? According to Herbalife Nutrition’s 2018 Asia Pacific Healthy Aging Survey, 97 percent of Koreans believe that active steps can be taken to help them age healthily. 81 percent believe that by this can be achieved by making better nutrition choices, while 74 percent believe that this can be achieved by engaging in more regular physical activity.

While many of you may be still enjoying life in the pink of health now, it is never too early to take steps towards healthy aging as your actions have cumulative effects in the long run. To help you along, here are seven positive lifestyle habits to kickstart your healthy aging journey.

1. Keep a Healthy Digestive System

Our digestive tract contributes to our well-being by absorbing nutrients and eliminating waste. . Unfortunately, many people suffer from abdominal discomfort and other digestive issues, and that may increase as we age.

To maintain a healthy digestive system, be conscious of what you eat. Supporting your digestive health with a variety of different kinds of dietary fiber can help. It also helps to take regular meals and probiotics to aid digestion. Probiotics have been shown to benefit the intestinal microbiota, which recent science has shown to be important in digestive and overall health. Exercising and drink plenty of water can help lower your risk too.

2. Prioritize Your Heart Health

Our heart is at the center of everything that gives our body life – from the transportation of oxygen to the success of the immune system, maintaining a healthy heart is vital for our well-being as we age.

Be good to your heart by eating a healthy diet, performing regular physical activity by engaging in cardio exercises at least three times a week, maintaining a healthy weight, and avoid smoking. It is important to keep your cardiovascular system in good shape as we age, and there is no better time than the present to start heart healthy practices including staying active and supporting a healthy diet with supplements that are beneficial to your heart.

3. Take Good Care of Your Bones

Our bone mass peaks in our 30s and 40s, before we start to lose calcium and other minerals. This is especially true for women after menopause, who will experience a rapid decline in bone mass in their later years.

Maintain healthy bones early by incorporating strength-training or weight-bearing exercises into your routine. You should also up your calcium intake by consuming high-calcium foods such as milk or soybeans, or a calcium supplement daily.

4. Preserve Your Joints

While age-related factors contribute to degenerative changes in our joints, taking active steps to preserve our joints can help maintain our mobility functions and joint comfort as we age.

Maintain healthy joints by incorporating flexibility and stretching exercises into your daily routine in the morning. You can also consume a glucosamine supplement for added joint support.

5. Protect Your Eyesight

One of the first signs of aging is the reduced ability to see things clearly up close – a condition called presbyopia. You may also find it difficult adjusting to glare or distinguishing some colors as you age.

One of the key nutrients responsible for healthy vision is lutein, which helps eye cells filter harmful ultraviolet (UV) light. Consume more lutein by incorporating foods such as spinach, kale, carrots or a lutein supplement into your diet. Protect your eyes from UV by wearing sunglasses and practice good eye habits by taking a break from your devices every 30 minutes.

6. Exercise Regularly

As metabolism slows with age, maintaining a healthy weight becomes a persistent challenge. Regular exercise can help to increase our body’s metabolism, build muscle mass and burn more calories.

Build a regular exercise plan with at least 30 minutes of moderate-intense physical activity each day. Incorporate exercises that you enjoy and reward yourself when you achieve your fitness goals to keep you motivated. For the time-strapped individuals, try sneaking in short walks throughout your day, park further away from the office or use a standing workstation to avoid being seated all day.

7. Keep Your Mind Active

Beyond preserving our physical health, maintaining our mental health is also vital in keeping dementia at bay while enabling a fulfilling life into our golden years.

Maintain an active mind by engaging in activities that you enjoy – spend time in nature, pursue a new hobby or take up music classes. It is also important to get enough sleep to improve focus, concentration and reduce stress.

No matter how young or old you are, it pays to start taking steps towards healthy aging now. By making simple changes to your lifestyle early with the goal of improving your long-term health, this will put you on the right track towards living a long, healthy and fulfilling life.
