Last March 17, 2013, thousands of runners converged at the SM Mall of Asia grounds for the biggest running event of the year, the Unilab Active Health and RunRio’s Run United 2013 series. Jeff and I started preparing for this race since January with weekly runs at the UP Diliman grounds. Jeff is the one with the most preparation because he ran his first 21 km, while I only registered for 5 km.
The most anticipated running event, Run United 2013 will start on March 17, 2013. Unilab Active Health and RunRio challenges Filipino runners to “Exceed Yourself”. What to look forward for this year’s Run United:
Last January 9, 2013, the 1st Frabelle Foodie Chef was named after Frabelle Foods launched the competition on their Facebook page. Food lovers, enthusiasts and consumers have to come up with their own recipes using any Frabelle Foods products like Yummy! Hotdogs and Cheesedogs, Pork Ham Tocino, Longganiza Hamonado, Hickory Smoked Bacon, and Honey Ham. With all the numerous entries, the finalists were narrowed down to five.
Move over Santa Claus! Because Hello Kitty will be the star of Christmas at SM North Edsa. Hello Kitty fans will be delighted because the world’s beloved cat will be here to stay until January 6, 2013. Hello Kitty will shower our Christmas and will usher the New Year with cuteness overload! It’s time to purrrty!
Let me show you the things you shouldn’t miss when you drop by SM North Edsa this holiday season.
Drop by the Hello Kitty Village at SM The Block Atrium and hang out at the four Hello Kitty houses decked in Christmas ornaments. Hello Kitty, Dear Daniel, Mimmy, Grandpa and Grandma Kitty will be there to welcome you in their respective houses.
Being a mommy 24 hours a day, 7 days a week is truly a demanding yet fulfilling and rewarding role. There are difficult days for sure but the joys of motherhood surmount it all. Aside from having a mommy role, you have to fill in the wifely duties too. Oh, and a career woman too if you’re like me. You divide your time to your kid/s, to your husband, and to your career, do you still have time for yourself?
Finally, the North got Jambafied! Last October 7, 2012, Jamba Juice Philippines opened its fourth store at the The Block, SM North Edsa. We love Jamba Juice ever since we got to try it at SM Mall of Asia. And now, it’s even more accessible to us because it’s in QC.
After the success of Run United 2, the third leg of the Runrio Trilogy is set on September 16, 2012. Run United 3 has always been anticipated because it offers what is dubbed as the “Afroman distance” or 32k category—not usually included in other run races. There are still the usual race categories: Ceelin 500m dash, 3k, 5k, 10k, and 21k.
Jeff and some of my officemates ran for Run United 2 2012 earlier, it’s also Father’s Day so it’s a different way to start the day, Jeff said it’s full of good vibes! It’s been a while since I joined a race, and I must agree to what Jeff said. I felt sluggish and almost dragging myself to get up from bed to be at SM Mall of Asia by 4:30 am (assembly time for 10k runners), and it’s raining so it’s very conducive to just sleep. We went to SM MOA anyway, and found plenty of runners doing their stretches already. Jeff and our friends headed to their starting line while I took photos of the event. And oh, I was there to be Jeff’s human baggage counter, hehe, I don’t mind.
Running is the cheapest and easiest sport, no need for expensive gym memberships or expensive sports equipments. All you need is a good pair of running shoes and you’re all set. I became active in running back in 2010, before I got pregnant. I’ll do my rounds at the UP Academic Oval after work for 2 to 3 times a week, it’s fun and I get to meet some celebrities too.
Coffee has become a part of our lifestyle. Thanks to the emergence of call centers and other BPOs with 24/7 working hours, this I think created a new group of coffee drinkers/coffee addicts who needs a dose of espresso before their shift, or needs some place to unwind after a toxic day or night.
Honestly, when I think of coffee shops, that familiar green logo comes to mind. But did you know that before foreign coffee shops hit our shores, Bo’s Coffee already started its humble beginnings as it opened its first store in Ayala Center Cebu back in 1996.
