What is LipoMelt Cavitation?

Trimming down your weight takes a while especially if you are always in the kitchen cooking your family's favorite dishes. A matter of discipline is its twin and therefore good luck with it, getting that shape you want.

There's still a solution for that! 

This phenomenon a few years back has been getting a lot of positive testimonials, and the celebrities are into it too.

With the not-so-famous-now procedure liposuction,which oftentimes leave patients in a traumatic state, has been decreasing popularity because of the non-invasive slimming procedures that has been creating a buzz lately. Slimming down is now possible in a matter of sessions.

photo taken from J.Waltenspiel Skin and Body Clinic page

LipoMelt Cavitation helps in  breaking down fats and cellulite through the ultrasound waves produced by the machine called lipoderm. You cannot feel any pain. Visible results can be achieved after the first session. 

Any slimming procedure with the help of proper diet and light exercise will definitely produce a positive and successful outcome in due time. 

LipoMelt Cavitation when combined with Radio Frequency (RF) which also aids in the melting of fat but has a tightening effect on the skin, will have a dramatic result on your problematic areas.

The usual problems that undergo this procedure are the thighs, love handles, arms, tummy and legs as well.

 A sneak peek of my RF procedure with Ms. Tina

If you have decided to take your sexy back, then it's time to face LipoMelt Cavitation. Don't worry, it will not cost you thousands just to get that dream-figure you had once upon a time. If other famous slimming centers with celebrity endorsers are on the money-talks... try J. Waltenspiel Skin and Body Clinic where quality talks. Your P599 procedure here is equivalent to P10,000 on other slimming centers producing the same outcome.

They have an ongoing promo until November 30, 2014. Book now or you'll regret it, and besides, you want to wear that gorgeous dream dress of yours.

Premium HyC - The New Potent Collagen Drink

PH welcomes Fine supplement products from Japan; Launches new potent collagen drink

Among most Asians, the Japanese are considered to possess not just flawless and youthful skin, but also live well beyond their years, with a longevity that is probably the envy of others.

It is a good thing that Filipinos can now also enjoy the benefits of not just looking young, feeling young and moving young as these same secrets are brought to the Philippines by FINE Japan Co., Ltd.

Established in 1974, FINE Japan Co., Ltd. is a nutraceutical company with a reputation to manufacture, research and develop excellent beauty and wellness supplement products that help restore youthful glow to their skin. For more than 40 years, FINE Japan Co., Ltd. is also known for its top-notch ISO 9001 certified manufacturing processes of its products, beginning with research, production to inspection that are all done in-house.

Its success was further highlighted during fiscal year 2013 when FINE Japan Co., Ltd. posted annual sales of more than JP¥ 2.6 billion, or around P1.06 billion. Its unprecedented success in the field of beauty and wellness thus prompted company officials to further expand the business.

Among its well-known creations include natural health-food supplements whose ingredients were gathered and extracted from various plant and animal sources. These were then transformed to food products, health-food supplements, even beverages and cosmetics, all discovered using outstanding product research and made by consistently following high manufacturing standards that will help contribute to a better society.

These qualities further enhanced FINE Japan Co., Ltd.’s reputation as a quality manufacturer of health and wellness products that spread throughout the world, in countries such as the USA, Hong Kong, South Korea, China and Vietnam, and now in the Philippines.

And now, added to the products that will further lift the company’s image in the nutraceutical industry is its newest and most innovative product, Premium HyC 150, which possesses some of the most natural elements that will help restore skin’s youthfulness and active glow as we advance in age.

Premium HyC 150 has a unique combination of 150 mg. of Hyaluronic Acid (HA), Collagen, and Ubiquinol, three major components especially made potent with the right amount of dosage in one sachet to effectively counter the rapid deterioration of the skin because of aging. It works from within, making it more effective than topical creams and lotions, plus the effects are more sustainable and ever increasing. The product is proven effective and truly safe for use by people who not only want to delay the effects of aging but also improve their health.   Attesting to the superior quality of the product, Premium HyC 150 has won the prestigious Monde Selection Gold Award in 2014.

“We want more Filipinos to enjoy their lives longer and healthier, and maintain youthful skin, especially for those advancing in age. With the help of Premium HyC 150 and the expertise of FINE Japan Co., Ltd., consumers can look forward to ‘revealing their new youth’ through beautiful, flawless and youthful skin they can be truly proud of,” explains Imelda Manook Tesalona, RPh, President of Fine Nutrition Trading International, the local importer of food supplements by FINE Japan Co., Ltd..

Collagen is a major component of the body that helps keep skin flexible while Hyaluronic Acid, found in the body’s skin tissues, helps hold moisture in the body, reduce skin dryness and at the same time hydrates the joints and connective tissues to prevent problems such as osteoarthritis, and even cataract.  Ubiquinol on the other hand is an antioxidant, providing energy and protects skin against free radicals.

Other elements in Premium HyC 150 include Elastin, a protein that allows the skin to “spring back” and keep it resilient and firm. Biotin, on the other hand, helps keep skin, hair and nails healthy, and ease eczema and dermatitis. 

The Pearl Coix extract, meanwhile, serves as a detoxificant and promotes clear, fair and luminous skin, while Vitamin C, a natural antioxidant, helps repair the body’s natural collagen and maintains the strength of our body’s tissues.

Premium HyC 150 is exclusively distributed in the Philippines by BrightRAY Enterprises, now available in Watsons stores nationwide. For more information, visit

House of the Best Lasagna

Blogger perks are the best!

They get to know and experience first-hand the products, they get to taste delectable dishes without spending a centavo and they win BIG time. Oh, I really love being a blogger and 50% of it is doing product reviews. The half would be the fun part, did I say it right? LOL Blogging is 101% pleasure. 

Honestly, I can't count the times that I won promos and contests online. May it be on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and others. You can see my previous winnings here.

This time was the biggest of all my winnings and until now, as I've mentioned the other day on my post, that I can't believe it.

Well, I am talking about the House of Lasagna #Blogapalooza contest.

Beef Lasagna is a love-at-first-bite during the event. It is new to me, as I have not heard of House of Lasagna before. Thanks to Blogapalooza for bringing them in. I always say I love joining contests but this one is different, my eagerness to win this huge prize is because of the thought that I can treat family and friends so they can also try the lasagna goodness and also feel like they won too.

Ms. Jocelyn with the San Juan staff

Thank you so much for this opportunity to enjoy House of Lasagna dishes. Here are some of the delectable dishes I've ordered so far using my GCs.

Half tray Carbonara Lasagna is my husband's and kids' fave
P800 (good for 4-6 persons)

Half Tray Beef Lasagna, of course all mine… joke.. 
I shared this with my sister in law Rowena and her family P800

Southern Fried Chicken is really a one of a kind. It's big size is equal to its taste, which makes you drool for more. 6 pieces for P390
photo credits House of Lasagna FB page (ubos na ng maalala ang picture)
We have tried also their Three Cheese Lasagna…. you can never go wrong with cheeses..this is Mishka's bet. P280 per single serving

I ordered a Whole Tray of Carbonara Lasagna for my relatives in Pateros and I brought it to the cemetery when we visited our late Grandma and Aunt. The Carbonara was a hit. In a flash it disappeared LOL. Whole Tray for P1,400 good for 6-12 pax

I still got some GCs left and will definitely use it for my Tristan's 5th Birthday on Nov. 12.  This time I would like to try either the Seafood Lasagna or the one with Angus Beef and again, paired with a tray of Carbonara. (walang kasawaan) No one can say no to deliciousness!

Even if nothing is left on my GCs I would, I mean, WE will definitely go back to the House of Lasagna.

Blogapalooza 2014: A First Timer and a Big Winner

It was last August when I first knew about Blogapalooza event on one of the blogs I am subscribed with. Without second thoughts I registered.

And then there was #Blogapalooza. October 11, 2014

It was a great day! The weather looks gloomy but not a drop of rain poured during the event. It was a funny experience because I went out of the house as early as 8:45AM and arrived at the place by 9:00AM, so I went out of the car knowing that SM Aura will probably open their doors to guests around 9:30, so I waited at the parking area, only to realize that I was not parked at SM Aura but Market Market, so I hurried up and feeling stupid. It was 9:20 something when I left Market Market and proceeded to Aura...

There I was standing first in line at the SMX Convention..YESSSSS I was the earliest of the early birds -wink- but no, there's no prize for that, or I just missed it.

doors aren't opened yet and it's just 10AM

at the SMX Convention, SM Aura 3rd Level
#Blogapalooza 2014

Anyway, it was a wonderful and successful event. So many booths from sponsors, I was going crazy which one to visit first. I haven't seen any familiar faces yet, so I just took a sneak peek of the sponsor booths.

I was relieved to have my business cards ready but because it is limited, I just have to choose which booth most interests me to drop my card. It never occurred to me that it is a fun, really fun event because of the games each sponsor prepared to amuse us. To sum up the most enjoyed parts of #Blogapalooza, these made my day even if it's a bit embarrassing:

Chooks-To-Go Wii-like game and I won a top score prize of the delicious 
"hindi na kailangan ng gravy" Roasted Chicken

Zomato dare challenge, wherein I also won a great prize
I have to get 6 people wearing red shirts 

Another winning for the day was from ZING Rewards.
I stacked up dice with the help of chopsticks, sadly no picture of me doing the feat

Several sponsor booths I have not visited because of my little stay there, but it was indeed enjoyable. I even got the greatest prize from it at the end of the day. And it's because of this entry from 

The contest is for the most likes and I got 120+ by 12AM
What did I win?
P10,000 worth of Gift Certificates from House of Lasagna
Am I jumping for joy? Of COURSE, and until now I can't believe it. 
My experience from the House of Lasagna will be posted soon.

This is their booth at the Blogapalooza, my love-at-first-taste of their mouthwatering Beef Lasagna.

Well, obviously I didn't go home empty-handed, but both hands are numb and aching because of the freebies... Look at this photo of me at the Ace Water and Spa booth, I am carrying just half of the freebies I got and yet it already looked heavy with those tight-looking muscles LOL

Max's mascot ChickieBoy with the limited edition Gilas tumbler

Caronia Blue Moon Collection Nail Polish

Victoria Court Discount Card
No idea when can I use this hihihi Never been there.

BueWater Day Spa post-it note

I was not able to go back to their booth for the wacky photo contest,,,, sad

I love the Sample Room booth, so girly so as this freebie.
Will post about my Sample Room experience soon. 

Crocs Phiippines colorful pen and cute key chain

YSA, Nice Day Coffee and Delite #teatime

Eat Out Manila

It was a tiring yet enjoyable day. I never regret attending the event and I will definitely be there next year again, expecting to experience and enjoy more from the sponsors.

Special thanks to all who made #Blogapalooza possible. 
Vince Golangco of When in Manila and Anton Diaz of Our Awesome Planet

Big thanks to all the sponsors who shared with us their goodies and friendly smiles.
Some of the booths that I also visited but was not able to take a photo are:

Easy Taxi
Henry's Professional
Niu by Vikings

I forgot the sponsors of the other booths, I will update this as soon as I remember them.

#Blogapalooza was a blast!
