Culinaire 2.0: A Magical Food Journey

by 5:39 PM

The 2nd Culinaire of 2016 held last Oct. 10 was an event to remember. Far different from the first which depicted artistry in food, the second one showed another version which is magic and play of lights. At the start of the program, each caterer paraded their appetizers for everyone to sample before leading the guests to the main function room where the real magic awaits.

The Function Room was a sight to behold. Each caterer has his own set up adhering to the theme of Magic and the guests had to choose their winner for Best Set Up by dropping their tokens on the glass bowl of the caterer they chose.

Mr. Walid Wafik, VP-General Manager of SMX Convention Center welcomed everyone by thanking the caterers for their loyalty and partnership, wished the guests to start the week right with good memories of the Culinaire shared with friends and family.

Guests were serenaded as they ate and were entertained with the magic acts and wit of the talented Magician, Marcus. Towards the end of the program Ms. Agnes Pacis, VP-Sales and Marketing closed the night by thanking all guest and clients and announced the winner for the Best Set Up which is Juan Carlo the Caterer.

Kudos to Stages Production Specialists Inc. for an awesome show! Truly an inspiring and memorable night from SMX Convention Center.

by 9:57 PM

GMA Network has retaken the lead in nationwide TV ratings, resulting from its stronger performance in all timeblocks, according to data from the industry’s trusted ratings service provider Nielsen TV Audience Measurement.

GMA likewise remained the undisputed ratings leader in viewer-rich Urban Luzon, which accounts for 77 percent of all viewers in urban TV homes in the entire country, with 43.4 percent, ahead of ABS-CBN’s 32.3 percent. 

In Mega Manila, another traditionally strong area for GMA representing 59 percent of urban viewers nationwide, the Network kept its total day ratings advantage with 46.1 percent versus ABS-CBN’s 28.2 percent.

Moreover, in comparison with ABS-CBN, more programs from GMA landed in the partial October list of 30 top-rating shows in Urban Luzon with a total of 18. 

The well-loved Kapuso telefantasya Encantadia grabbed the number one spot in the Urban Luzon chart, while emerging as the highest-rating Kapuso program in National Urban Philippines.

The recently launched Kapuso primetime show Alyas Robin Hood, primetime newscast 24 Oras, award-winning comedy program Pepito Manaloto, multi-awarded news magazine show Kapuso Mo, Jessica Soho, weekly drama anthology Magpakailanman, and weekend primetime offering Hay Bahay!  were also among the top 10 programs in Urban Luzon during the covered period.

Opulence Nutrawhite L-Glutathione + Boosters Review

by 9:47 PM
When I posted a sneak peek of the products that I received from Opulence Skin Philippines, their glutathione capsule was the most appealing to you mga bessie and I know you're waiting for my review since I am your guinea pig hahaha. I am receiving follow ups on my Facebook from you guys if I already posted a review of this. Finally! I've finished 1 bottle (60 capsules) and I am now ready to give you my feedback about it.

Opulence Nutrawhite L-Glutathione + Boosters Review

Opulence Nutrawhite will not only help achieve lighter and younger looking skin but also boost our immune system, helps us fight infections, and may aid in cancer prevention.

Improved immune function (resistance to infection and various pathogens, timely elimination of cancerous cells, proper regulation of immune response)
Improved energy levels
Improved mental focus
Improved physical strength and muscle function
Oral Glutathione (and topical Glutathione creams) are known to inhibit the synthesis of melanin (the pigment responsible for our skin and hair color), making the skin lighter

L-Glutathione (GSH) 500mg- occurs naturally in all human cells.  GSH is a cofactor for dozens of enzymes involved in detoxification. As an antioxidant, it directly quenches several reactive oxygen species (free radicals). Numerous structures and functions in the body receive benefit from maintaining normal levels of glutathione, such as hepatic support, pulmonary health, immune function, bowel health, carbohydrate metabolism, cardiovascular health, cognitive health and eye health.

Vitamin C 100mg- raises Glutathione by helping the body manufacture it.

N-Acetylcysteine (NAC) 150mg- replenishes the body's glutathione levels by providing the rate-limiting substrate (cysteine) for glutathione synthesis.

Vitamin E 100IU- recycles Glutathione and depend on it for proper function and recycling as well.

Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA) 50mg- neutralizes several toxins including heavy metals lead and cadmium.  It acts as a co-enzyme for recycling other antioxidants including Glutathione, Vitamin C and E.

Selenomethionine 200mcg- an important trace mineral and constituent of the antioxidant enzyme glutathione peroxidase, which is necessary for neutralizing the free radical, hydrogen peroxide, as well as as other lipid peroxides (oxidized fats).

Where to buy?
Insta: @theopulenceskin

How much?
P1,200 (60s) P750 (30s)

The Opulence Nutrawhite is a neophyte glutathione product here in the Philippines and I love that fact because I'll be one of the firsts to review it. When one of their representatives offered me their products for review, I've made my research first because I never heard the brand before. I've found out that they're a startup and super legit business in the beauty industry here in the Philippines. Yes they sent me the products for free for review purposes. I just want a full disclosure and I always tell you if the review is sponsored or not. Regardless, you know how I love giving honest and unbiased feedback in every products that I'm reviewing because that's what you deserve.

The first thing that I love about this glutathione capsule is that it doesn't have that strong rotten egg smell. Though, it smells like a mild sulfur but it's not bothering at all. I also like its packaging, it comes in a regular white bottle printed with the everything you need to know about the product. Did I mention that it's FDA approved and made in USA?

On my first few days, I was taking Opulence Nutrawhite together with 500mg Poten Cee 30 minutes before breakfast. I tried that routine for better absorption but it makes my acid reflux worse so I changed my routine to 30 minutes after breakfast and 30 minutes after dinner. All went smooth but I still felt mild acidity going on my tummy. One capsule of Opulence Nutrawhite contains 50mg of ALA which can trigger acidity and so do my vitamin c.

I braved myself to take the product without the vitamin c. At first, I was doubting if the product will work with just 100mg of vitamin c which is already included in the capsule. But! I was wrong!  The product worked great! I've noticed that my tummy is behave when I'm taking Opulence Nutrawhite alone and people are complementing my skin for being glowing and fair. I received comments about my skin on the pictures that I've posted recently. Look:

My former office mates also noticed my fair skin when we reunited. They said that I am fairer compared before when I was in the office and my skin looks healthy (I was so kilig to the max haha). I've told them that I'm using Opulence and two of them ordered the next day. I've asked them if I can mention their names here but they don't want haha tlaga ba hah J**** and S****a? Hahaha they're really shy lol.

Aside from acidity while taking it with vitamin c, I didn't notice any side effects like heartburn, headaches, burning throat, pimple breakout, and diarrhea. As in non at all that's why I love it. In fact, I asked my doctor when I was rushed in the hospital because of food poisoning if I can can take my gluta caps the next morning and he said yes haha.

What I like:
• Effective (True to its claim)
• Affordable
• No need for separate vitamin c
• FDA approved
• Packaging
• No side effects
• Loaded with gluta booster ingredients
• Locally available
• No strong smell

What I don't like:
• It makes me acidic when taking it with separate vitamin c.
• There are some cotton strands in the capsule from the cotton included in the bottle to absorb the moisture haha. I sometimes remove some cotton strands but not all the capsules have it.

Let my photos speak on how effective Opulence is:

Photo taken yesterday. No filter. Window lighting. Wearing Snow Cushion

Photo taken yesterday at Solar's event

All in all, I highly recommend Opulence Nutrawhite Glutathione to you guys if you're looking for an effective glutathione pills. It's FDA approved and true to its claims. If you're not acidic, you may take it 30 minutes before meal to maximize the absorption. It will also save us some money because there's no need to buy for a separate vitamin c because the 100mg included in one capsule of Opulence Nutrawhite is more than enough. I super love it guys honestly, I am giving you my word. I think it will also work taking it one capsule a day if you just want to maintain a fair looking skin.

It's like I'm taking Snow Caps Glutathione and Ishigaki Premium because Opulence Nutrawhite works too. What's more surprising is that, it's effective even without taking a separate vitamin c. (I keep on insisting that guys. Sorry haha I just can't believe that it works. It's simply amazing). Try it for yourself guys and I can't wait to add this to our "What's the best glutathione in the Philippines" blog post.

Remember that what's  effective for me may not be effective for you. We have different skin types and health conditions so take my review as a guide not as a pattern. Take it with a pinch of salt. Thank you.

Get Cashback for your Online Shopping Purchases!

by 1:22 PM
Just like what I’ve promised you, here’s another blog post on how you can save money from shopping. Christmas is fast approaching and most of us are excited to buy gifts for our love ones and inaanaks. However, this season is the season of heavy traffics (traffic for all seasons because it’s traffic everyday lol) and over-crowded malls. I know most of you cannot handle such kind of situations even me. I really can’t shop together with so many people during the sale season because it makes me dizzy and exhausted. I know most of you can relate to that. Don’t worry, now, you don’t have to deal with heavy traffics, pollution, and huge crowd just to save some money because there is..

ShopBack is a Singaporean-headed e-commerce that utilizes the cashback reward program. It allows online shoppers to take a portion of their cash back when they buy products through the service. They also provide discount coupons and voucher codes for enjoyable online shopping experience.

ShopBack helps you get the best deals and discounts on 300+ stores, plus Cashback! Cashback is really just "getting cash back" - When you spend online through ShopBack, we give you a portion of your purchase back as Cashback. This means extra, unlimited savings whenever you shop online!

I recently tried how it works and I was amazed by the savings that I’ve got. Furthermore, they also display items that are currently on sale depending on the category from your favorite online stores. I must commend their website for being so user friendly and well organized. Look:

As you can see, once you’ve successfully signed in, you’ll be redirected to their homepage wherein you can see your account savings summary, your favorite online stores and how much cashback you can get, the categories, and sale items at the bottom part of the homepage. As of now, I have P323.52 earnings from my recent shopback use. Not to mention the savings that I’ve got because the items that I’ve purchased were on sale.

It’s really easy! All you have to do is create an account and shop till you drop! There’s no need to fill up any forms just to be entitled for a ShopBack credit. All you need to do is click on the merchant’s logo inside ShopBack so you’ll be redirected to your preferred online store and shop like the usual. Please note that you should finish your shopping on the same window for you to assure the ShopBack credits. Wait for few days for the ShopBack credit to appear on your ShopBack account.

In my case, I’ve ordered some products from Althea Korea through ShopBack and got 7% CashBack. Very timely because I’ve received an email from ShopBack that Althea is having a 7% cashback rate from the original 5%. That’s another tip. Subscribe to their mailing list for you to get updates for sales and promotions.

Things I’ve purchased:

As you can see, the product is 40% off! Yey! Thanks ShopBack!!
I've also got a free item from Tony Moly!
I also used ShopBack to purchase other stuff online from Lazada (always check for Lazada vouchers) and Zalora (up to 12% cashback and promo codes). All in all, I love using ShopBack because they’re giving us a cashback that we can withdraw, updated sales and promotions from our favorite online stores. I highly recommend using this service to everyone because it’s safe, easy and beneficial. So the next time you wanna shop online, don’t forget to visit ShopBack first for that wonderful and wise shopping experience.
