Miles for Smiles : Run for Cleft Care

Earlier today, we ran for a cause – to make a child smile. It does take time, sweat and total commitment to make it to the finish line. I’m supposed to run for 3k but eventually got lost along the way and instead finished a 5k leg. That was an interesting event turn out.

It was nice seeing old faces and meeting new ones. The most rewarding thing of all, is seeing how excited those kids beneficiaries are. Kudos to Noordhoff Craniofacial Foundation Philippines, Inc. (NCFPI) for making it possible and reaching out to share the news about free comprehensive cleft care. Now, every children with “bingot” or cleft palates and craniofacial abnormalities can smile for a brighter future.

An Advocacy to Help the Handicapped

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of NMEDA. All opinions are 100% mine.

Whenever I stroll at the mall or out of the street, I can’t help but notice how some places are inaccessible for the handicapped. I could just imagine how depressing it is for the part of the elderly or disabled to navigate the road. It’s even more frustrating for the caregiver if they can’t help address the situation.

Good thing there is NMEDA or National Mobility Equipment Dealers  Association whose advocacy is to provide safe, reliable vehicles and modifications to enhance accessibility for all people. It is a non-profit trade association of Mobility Dealers, Manufacturers and Rehabilitation Professionals.

Laughter Yoga & Yogurt Jelly for Good Health

When Nuffnang sent an invite for another bloggers event last weekend, I didn’t hesitate to confirm my attendance. Got quite intrigue about Laughter Yoga and the blogger’s launch of Nestle Fruit Selection Yogurt with Jelly.

I spent an afternoon at Julius Maggi Kitchen in Nestlè, Rockwell last Saturday. Surprisingly it was Ogilvy peeps welcoming us again.

Mike Unson hosted the Nestle event and kept the mood light, happy and lively. He’s a stand-up comedian that offers a  fresh kind of humor. He entertained us with pure unadulterated humor and new acts ’till the end. Does he look like Vandolph? lol. Continue reading

Running Our First Road Race

A reason to celebrate! Hubby and I just run our first race together at the Rexona Run 2010. Indeed, a new sport to get us started with losing weight and staying fit.

Words can’t summarize how delighted we were with the event. Although it was a short 3k distance, we feel that it was just right to start off with a little fun run together. No pressure, less stress, no time to beat.

For a backgrounder, I’m not an occasional jogger at all, but I do enjoy walking. I can stand walking for long hours, yet it is a lot different from running. Worse, I have been missing out a cardio program lately. On the other hand, Running  is an excellent cardio exercise and fat burning workout. Undoubtedly, a new challenge for us.
