Making a Life, not just a Living made possible through Energizer and Nuffnang

Energizer and Nuffnang power my life through redefining Balance.
In this fast-paced world, where everyone works hard to get to the top of the corporate ladder, I often ask myself if I am leaning against the right wall. I frequently suffer from burnouts so I sought to redefine success and rethink my priorities.
I can't help asking myself about the last time I achieved and enjoyed something my family and friends. I had a hard time recalling an instant wherein I even achieved AND really enjoyed something just for myself. It was then that I realized that I need to energize my inner life as I cultivate my spirit! The task to realign my life religiously becomes a pressing concern.
Like most working mothers out there, I am torn between seeking ways to augment family income and focusing on my child on a full time basis. I do believe that the parenting choices we make creates major impact on how our children would become productive citizens of the society we belong to. And ultimately, every mother's goal is to enforce that loving bond between mother and child.

Before being a community member of Nuffnang, I try to focus what I'd like to enjoy with my family at home night when I walk in the door. And I'd often think about doing a movie marathon over bowls of popcorn with my spouse and daughter especially on Friday nights. I am glad that my remote device has a long-lasting pair of batteries courtesy of Energizer to make our bonding moments hassle-free. I know that my child's battery-operated toys will keep her occupied and entertained while she waits for me to come home from work.
I rely on Energizer batteries for a reliable source of power for my home appliances and gadgets as well. Energizer powers my lifestyle by increasing my productivity, allowing me to do multi-tasking acitivities whether at home or at the office. And definitely, worries on draining batteries becomes a thing of the past.

I love that fact the Nuffnang provides a community for bloggers and organizes events d movie screenings, press releases and others to strike a balance between my work and family life. Nuffnang allows me to lead a balanced and fulfilled life rooted in real values. Finding quality bonding time with my family is now made easy by joining in Nuffnang-sponsored activities. And Energizer ensures life moments with my family and my blogging community circles are captured each time!

Thank you, Nuffnang and Energizer! I'm looking forward to our lasting relationship! Share a blogpost on “How do Energizer and Nuffnang power your lifestyle?” and to do to win two (2) tickets to our movie screening: Write a blog post answering the question “How do Energizer and Nuffnang power your lifestyle?” and get a chance to win two (2) movie tickets to a special screening of The Amazing Spider-Man on June 29th.

Iron Bar Chef

I was amazed to find out that adequate number of vocational and work programs are in place at the Bureau of Corrections. It has been more than two decades when I had the chance to enter the Maximum Security Compound. It was an outreach program then hosted by my highschool alma mater in which we donated sacks of rice to the offenders.
Not only do these work and recreational programs aim at improving the mental and physical makeup of the detainees, it also provide them with opportunities to earn their keep while in captivity and it equip them with basic skills to join in society after release from custody. Those who completed their studies are being hired as inmate teachers. Others with military or police backgrounds are asked to join ICA, a group that keeps peace and order within the compound.

Not only do these initiatives reduce prison staffing, this strategy also boosts self-esteem among the prisoners and keep them busy. A productive and occupied mind deters them from busting out of prison and going back to re-offending. OIC Aro told us that offenders are classified into 3 categories: Maximum security - those sentenced 20 years plus 1 day and above Medium security - 20 years and below Minimum security - minor offenders who can freely roam around the compound
Last June 16, we were invited to the Iron Bar Chef Challenge at the Muntinlupa Bilibid Prisons. It was a spin-off from the Iron Chef America, in which the contestants competed in culinary challenges and eliminated by a panel of judges at the end of tasting and judgment.

Each group were give a mystery 'bayong' which contains fish, meat, fruit and vegetable ingredients they could use to prepare the required main course, appetizer and dessert. Criteria set for this elimination round are: 50% taste
25% plating
25% nutrient value

Two bloggers, Lariza Garcia and Yani Metrado joined the panel of judges. A live band performance from the Bilibid Boys Band kept the audience entertained as the six groups work their culinary magic using the ingredients given them.

It was interesting to watch as each member of a group does his share peeling vegetables, cutting bite-size pieces, whisking batter, cleaning after their cook while the latter concentrates on a winning gourmet line-up he has in mind.

After 30 minutes, several groups had their appetizers and main courses platted and lined up on their tables, ready for the judges to taste and rank.

I Love Globe

I love GLOBE because GLOBE loves me back!

Globe is taking good take of its patrons by constantly being on the look out for product and service improvements! How can you go wrong with 25-million strong customers plus 650,000 landline and broadband subscribers? The prepaid cellphone plans have become a part of our basic needs just like food. It takes as little as 10 pesos to monitor my child as I attend to our little store business personally.

It is assuring for a mom like myself that I can keep close contact with my family through calls, texts and the internet anytime, anywhere.
I love the 10-peso Facebook connection for one day! Talking about multi-tasking, this amount is really a value for hard-earned money! And knowing that Globe has the widest network coverage in Philippines assures me of connectivity anywhere am I in the country 24/7!

I also love that fact that GLOBE partnered Puregold Price Club Inc. which allows Globe Autoload Max (AMAX) dealers to purchase Globe and TM prepaid load credits at Puregold branches nationwide. Since I am a a member of Puregold’s Aling Puring (AP) program as well, I was given free Super Suki SIM that comes with special call and text rate that I use as an AMAX SIM for my sari-sari store business.

Globe GCash is also another thing that gets me hooked on Globe. Globe Gcash has been a convenient tool for me in performing money transfer activities, making secure and convenient online shopping on ebay and multiply, as well as sharing load to my family members. I also get to pay my insurance merchants and utility bills hassle-free! Moreover, Globe Gcash is better than Western Union since virtual mobile wallet too. All Globe and Touch Mobile subscribers need just activate this service to start using it for free.

I am happy with my personal and business relationship with Globe. Make the switch now!'s I-Ball organized it's first Ayos Dito I-Ball last June 8, 2012. Mr. Jon Santico, General Manager of 701 Search Inc. (the company behind the site), along with Ms. Tanya Cabab, AyosDito Marketing Manager, welcomed the invited bloggers and gamely answered all questions raised during the open forum portion of the event.

AyosDito, is an online Filipino classified ads website that is easy to navigate and facilitates hassle-free buy-and-sell transactions, just how we Pinoys like it. Designed for Pinoys by Pinoys, the site has just been awarded last year as the No. 1 Classified Ads website by Digital Filipino Search Profile Index. This blogger event was attended by GMA's Solenn Heusaff, ABS-CBN's upcoming actor John Medina and DJ Tony Toni of Magic 89.9 in Ortigas Center, Pasig City. Bloggers were treated to Sebatian's Ice Cream, Tempura Quail eggs, Sisig Tacos, Tuyo pasta, Corned beef pandesal, and unlimited round of cocktail drinks.

There were games and prizes! I was lucky to have won the searcher-searchee portion where questions were posted to female bloggers with regards to how the AyosDito site works.
