Saturday, October 09, 2010
Cancer is one of the most deadly disease in the world and it doesn’t matter how old you are 70, 50, 20 or 5. It is more traumatic to them for children have a hard time coping up with the disease. Children should be playing with friends, dreaming of fairytale, climb up the trees, they should be full of hope and not be battling this frightening disease to survive. Let’s help and support them. Let’s give them their dreams back and help them fight  CA.
This is our chance to help out to this children and their family. They need to have a strong support system from family, friends, you and me. I know how hard it is when your love one is suffering from CA, as my Dad died of cancer.  It was really hard but thanks to the support of everyone we get through it and my Dad didn’t give up till the end. So, help  and support the campaign and give those children their dreams back.
Real Love Campaign
Unilever Foodsolutions has partnered with Kythe in order to assist it in its mission to improve the quality of life of cancer patients through fun and normal activities like cooking. In the Real Love Campaign outreach programs, Unilever Foodsolutions and their operators are able to interact with kids with cancer by creating healthy sandwiches using Lady’s Choice and Best Foods mayonnaise.
Kids are given a wide array of ingredients to choose from and fun animal-shaped cutters in order for the kids to learn that preparing healthy food can actually be enjoyable. Aside from this, kids also engage in other activities like storytelling sessions, scrapbooking, and other arts and crafts modules.
To further strengthen this campaign, Unilever Foodsolutions has also partnered with Team Manila to come up with a specially designed, limited-edition shirt which will be available in Team Manila outlets in Rockwell, SM Mall of Asia, Trinoma and online through its website.
You can support this cause by purchasing your own limited edition Real Love shirt through Team Manila’s online store (Php550 or $12.50). Parts of the proceeds will go directly to Kythe Foundation and its operations for cancer-stricken kids. Click here to view the women’s Real Love shirt and the men’s Real Love shirt.
In order to mobilize the public further, Unilever Foodsolutions also has a Facebook page dedicated to the Real Love campaign. With every 1,000 “Like” entries until it reaches 10,000 fans, Unilever Foodsolutions will donate 1,000 sandwiches to the different Kythe partner hospitals.
I’m sure all of us have known and/or lost at least 1 person in our lives with cancer. Let’s all join together in fighting cancer by showing Real Love to kids with cancer.

Unexpected Urban Oasis
Friday, February 15, 2008
Yesterday, I went to the Orchidarium & Butterfly Pavilion with my friend Monic and I was really amazed that amidsts this polluted city there is such a place like this. A place where you can relax and enjoy the flowers, the indigineous plants, tree ferns, experience a rainforest and a man made waterfalls.

Orchidarium & Butterfly Pavilion

As I stroll around the place, I could only spot a few flowers in bloom for it's the middle of February and mostly flowers bloom in summer. But it's ok 'coz I just want to have a relaxing walk and a breathe of fresh air. The gardens landscape is really beautiful. And because of the layout of the place you won't feel the urban noise and the pollution of the city. It's like your in another place. Well, if you want to know what I'm talking about just visit the Orchidarium. It is located in the Heart of Manila, at the Rizal Park and it is open daily from 9:00AM to 5:00 Pm except Monday where they have a Nokia Day. For inquiries call telephone numbers (632) 527-6376, 527-6378

So what are you waiting for? Bring your family there and have fun. Oppss! Before I forgot, there is more to the place than just plants. You can also go wall-climbing, go fishing and walk at the hanging bridge (under renovation at the moment). It is also a perfect place for a Wedding Reception and gatherings. So, see you there!

Arch of the Centuries
Friday, February 08, 2008

Another place to visit in UST is the Arch of the Centuries in front of the España Street. The Arch of the Centuries has a classic Greek or Roman style design. The details are very good and it has survived and restored many times due to the Waolrd War one when it was bombed and of course due to earthquakes.

"Any visitor or new student who enters the España main pedestrians' gate is immediately drawn to the Arch of the Centuries, right in front, about fifteen meters away. Classical Greek and Roman in inspiration with its Doric fluted columns, but baroque in its wealth of curving and embossed details, it looks like one of those triumphal arches for victorious Athenian athletes or returning Roman generals that are seen in history books. The medallion arch is usually a memorial for all distinguished Thomasians. The inscription says, "Gateway to the history of the finest breed of Filipinos". On the lower facade of the pillar, a commemorative plaque honors Jose Rizal, national hero and UST alumnus, and another plaque, Manuel L. Quezon, President of the Philippine Commonwealth, also a UST graduate. On the sides of the rectangular top of the arch are panels depicting some milestones in the life of St. Thomas Aquinas. Above all these, sits the serene, regal image of this angelic doctor, scholastic philosopher and theologian, patron of the University and of all Catholic schools.

The side of the arch facing the campus was the main doorway to the university building before it was destroyed by World War II. The stones of that doorway, now rough-hewned and eroded, were transferred and reassembled piece by piece in its present site. The side with its Grecian design facing España Street is a reconstruction of the doorway as it originally looked." (Source: UST Website)
