Sarah Geronimo shares her secret recipe for success

Image
Just when you thought Sarah Geronimo can do it all, she reveals that she has also learned how to cook. Speaking at the launch of Phoenix SUPER LPG, the Popstar Royalty shared that although it took her a while, she really wanted to learn how to whip up culinary hits in the kitchen.

“Ginusto ko po talagang matutong magluto. Parang ang sarap kasi sa pakiramdam na kaya mong ipagluto ‘yung pamilya mo and mga friends mo (I really wanted to learn how to cook. It feels good to be able to cook for your family and friends),” shared Sarah.
Having discovered the joys of cooking, Sarah took culinary classes to further her newfound passion. She started with little experiments--from whipping eggs correctly, to cooking simple dishes. Eventually, Sarah learned to make Filipino favorites such as adobo and sinigang.

“Marunong na rin po akong gumawa ng iba’t ibang sauces (I also know now how to make different sauces),” Sarah quipped in between laughter.

MiGuard, Your Family's Security at its finest!

Image
Lenten Season is just a few weeks away, and most of us will enjoy our most awaited vacation by going to the beach, or to the provinces and visiting relatives long missed. With this being said, we end up leaving our homes with no one to look after, most of us rely on our ever trusty guard dogs or CCTV's installed hoping this will serve as a deterrent to anyone who will try to break in our homes.

With all the things that is happening in our society today, it's better to be safe than sorry, gearing up your home against any unwanted visitors, or preventing any dangers from escalating is a must,.

Your home should be safe. It should feel like your own personal refuge, a private sanctuary where you and your family can feel most secure and most worry-free.

The demand for home security has always been a top priority for most of us, ensuring the safety of our family from any harm, in the Philippines, just like in many countries, feeling safe within the confines of ones’ home, is never…

Common Health Risks for People who works in BPO Companies

Image
I started working in the Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) Industry way back 2007. Being a college undergraduate, I had to support my family and BPO had been my only hope. I worked as a Senior Account Representative in one of the biggest telecommunication company here in the Philippines but the income will not suffice my family’s daily needs. I must say that BPO had been a great help for me and my family.

Working in a BPO will definitely help you financially. In return, you will have a lot to sacrifice. You will have sleep deprivation since you will be working at night most of the time (graveyard shifts). You will not even notice the date, as most of the accounts you will be working for have different time zones. You will turn to foods, (comfort foods) when you are burned and stressed out. You will have less and less time to exercise. As a result, many call center employees are obese.

5 Ways to Create The Most Meaningful Summer for your child

Image
School year is about to end, so aside from the long awaited vacation of our kids, we as parents always wanted to make sure that our kids will have a meaningful summer vacation. When I was a kid I remember freely running in our backyard and playing with other kids and that is where I develop my social skills and exercise my sportsmanship in different games that we played. The entire duration of my vacation during my childhood were spent in playing with friends outdoor, household chores, visiting my cousins or relatives who lived far from us and ofcourse watch my grandmother cook our favorite dishes for me to learn her craft.

Generation may pass but kids nowadays still need to develop their skills, hobbies, socialize and enhance whatever talent they may have, so aside from going to the beach or spending the whole day in front of the computer it would help if we introduce our kids in other activities that they can unleash their hidden talents and at the same time help them improve their…

Lack of sleep can affect you in a lot of ways. According to medical studies, this can get you prone to heart disease, obesity, and high blood pressure, your mood and judgment.

Humans generally spend 1/3 of their lives sleeping. Moreover, it is an activity considered to be just as important as following a healthy diet and exercise. On the other hand, trivia shows that humans are also the only mammal that willingly delays sleep.


True enough, getting proper zzz's is something most of us often take for granted. A shocking worldwide statistic has ranked the Philippines as the fifth country with the worst sleepers, with individuals getting an average of only six hours and 22 mins of sleep. Sleep deprivation in the country affects about 50 million Filipinos, making the problem a national issue.
