Appetizing Abstinence from Goldilocks

In a country where almost 90 percent of the population belongs to the Roman Catholic faith, the 40 day period of Lent represents a time for deep and prayerful reflection. Part of this remembrance is to practice abstinence, wherein adult Catholics are encouraged to refrain from eating any form of meat every Friday during Lent.

In line with this, Goldilocks Foodshop now offers a variety of delicious meals that are totally meat-free, yet totally delicious. Treat your taste buds to the savory goodness of Goldilocks’ Tuna Pie, Bangus Belly Sinigang, Rellenong Bangus, All Veggie Lumpia, and Sarap Pinggang Pinoy Pinakbet, all of which come in very affordable prices.

These Lenten specials are available at all Goldilocks Foodshop branches nationwide.For more information, you may also follow Goldilocks on Twitter or Instagram at @GoldilocksPH, on the Goldilocks Facebook page, or log on to the official Goldilocks website at

Karylle and Yael Yuzon represet BelVita Breakfast Biscuits

Last February 20, 2018, Mondalez launch its first breakfast cookie icon in the Philippines with Karylle and Yael Yuzon as faces of the brand.

BelVita is the first-ever breakfast biscuit from Mondelez Philippines which aims to address consumers’ growing needs for convenient and delicious well-being snacks.

Expanding in the well-being space

“We live in a fast-paced world where people have increasing awareness of their well-being needs but are sometimes challenged by the lack of time to prepare and eat a balanced breakfast. Their preferences are evolving and they want snacks that are not only delicious but offer convenience and good nutrition. We see belVita entering the breakfast category by creating this new biscuit occasion. We envision belVita to energize this well-being space,” said Anna Sapitan, Mondelez Philippines’ Marketing Manager for the Biscuits Category.

Just like any young Filipino, Karylle and Yael Yuzon knows that breakfast is very important, especially for people like them who lead active and hectic lives. With their life goals, they know that breakfast is the time they get their energy for a long list of activities ahead. “Breakfast is sometimes the only meal we get to enjoy together with our many commitments. This is why belVita breakfast biscuit is ideal for the lifestyle we have. We try to eat a balanced breakfast every morning. So we pair belVita with a piece of fruit and a glass of milk and we know we have everything we need to jumpstart our day,” Karylle shared.

As for the taste, Yael likes how tasty and easy it is for him to have his breakfast. “I like belVita not only because it is convenient to eat but also because it’s really yummy. It’s easy to reach for and it fills me up just right. When I want a delicious, healthy and convenient breakfast, it’s the perfect go-to,” Yael mused. With their jampacked days, Karylle and Yael turn to belVitaas their breakfast staple, making them the perfect couple to introduce and endorse the brand to the Philippine market.

Specially created for breakfast

Several studies confirm that this accelerated shift to convenient well-being products in the snack industry is well-founded. Reference from the Philippines’ adult energy and nutrient intakes study published in the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology (FASEB) Journal in 2013identified 1 out of 5 adults in Philippines tend to skip breakfast. It is also noted in the Food and Nutrition Research Institute 2013 Dietary Survey that only a third or 31.5% of households in urban areas are able to meet their energy requirements for the day. And in the National Capital Region, 1 in 10 or 13% of households consume their breakfast outside their homes. “Belvita is specially designed for breakfast,” said Princess Landicho, belVita Brand Manager. “Just pair it

with a serving of dairy products and fruit for a balanced breakfast to help kickstart your morning with energy. It is also a great on-the-run snack because of its convenient packaging.”

“BelVita breakfast biscuits are made with whole grain cereals, which include whole wheat and oat, and are fortified with vitamins and minerals such s Vitamin A, B1, B2, B3, D, calcium, iron and zinc. And thanks to more than 15 years of research, belVita is also baked using a special gentle baking process, which helps to preserve the nutritional quality of our cereal ingredients,” Landicho added.

First launched in 2011 in the United Kingdom as a breakfast biscuit, this global breakfast icon is sold in more than 50 countries. Locally, belVita is available in two flavors: Milk and Cereal, and Honey and Chocolate. BelVita is also purposely packaged to help consumers exercise portion control. It is available in a 4-pack box with an SRP of P30.50 and the single 20g pack worth P8.25 that contains two delicious and filling biscuits.Delicious and nutritious, each piece can be part of a convenient breakfast to give energy for a packed day ahead.

Be the best beautiful you with Clara International Skin and Body Clinic

A face is lovely if its contours are gently defined. Now, you can  have a delicately sculpted face you always wanted at Clara Skin and Body.

Clara International uses combined synergy of ultrasound and RF sessions to visibly improving the shape and contours of the face and body. Radiofrequency (RF) treatments are involving the use of a radiofrequency (RF) energy device to heat up and   penetrate deep in the dermis and the skin's subcutaneous layers. RF energy gives you the luxury to mold your face into how you want it to look. It stimulates subdermal collagen production that helps reduce the appearance of fine lines, improves the underlying tissue structure plus tightens loose skin to boost blood flow and break down cellulite.

Radio frequency skin tightening is an aesthetic technique often used for facial rejuvenation since it aids in the production of new collagen and elastin.

I got to try this for myself at the Clara International Skin and Body Clinic. The relaxing treatment started with cleansing. They use hypoallergenic cleanser for my sensitive, combination skin. The aesthecian started the ultrasound phase on my right cheek and moved on to the left. It felt cold on my neck and cheeks as she knead through. For the RF session, she used the two-prong V-Firm instrument on the same areas after applying gel on the skin surface.

Clara International Skin and Body Clinic's face contour regimen (30-45 minutes duration involves the application of a rejuvenating mask afterwards.

There is noticeable improvement in muscle tone both in my jowl, face and neck immediately after the treatment. My fine lines, facial sags, and wrinkles seemed to have diminished.

The 198-square-meter clinic at the second floor of Sunshine Boulevard Plaza along Quezon Avenue, is the Philippine master franchise of Clara International Beauty Group, that was founded by Dr. Clara Chee in 1977. This 41-year old Malaysian company with humble beginnings as a beauty salon was the proponent of herbal skin care formulations catering to different climates.
