The Mind Museum: Uniquely Filipino

In celebration of Andres Bonifacio’s 150th year, The Mind Museum joined Bonifacio Global City’s Passionfest with “Science sa Plaza“. Mind Museum’s Cafe Scientific also had a presentation entitled “Why should Pinoys bother with Science?” with guest scientists,including those from Phivolcs, Pagasa and The Manila Observatory. Maria Isabel Garcia, Dr Gemma Narisma, Dr Gerry Bagtasa and Dr Renato Solidum discussed very timely and important issues – climate change, science culture in the Philippines, and a whole lot more! Glad they made this discussion open to the public!

The Mind Museum is a project of the non-profit Bonifacio Art Foundation, Inc. It is dedicated to providing an extraordinary educational experience that inspires the public understanding of science.
This 8,000 square meters museum boast about their uniquely Filipino concept. 

When I entered the museum, I felt that I was eight years old again! There were 250 interactive exhibits through five interconnected stories. 

Every exhibit were pretty fascinating. “The Majesty of the Universe” was my favorite!

I was also lucky to visit Da Vinci: The Genius‘ last day of exhibit.

It can get really busy at weekends, but even so I was still able to enjoy the exhibits. 
Cafe is also available inside the museum so you won’t have to worry about your growling stomach after hours of wandering. Their restrooms are clean too.

In line with the Christmas season, The Mind Museum is running a promotion! You can get the museum all-day passes for only Php450! 

You can also share the Mind Museum experience by sponsoring a child. Details here

Geek or not, every Filipino should visit The Mind Museum.

Happy Monday!

October Discoveries

We can already feel and smell Christmas!
But before we finally shop for our Christmas presents,allow us to share with you the things that we discovered this October.

Grace cookies!
Enjoy chewy and tasty cookies for only Php150/box!
Grace cookies come in two delightful flavors. Chewy oatmeal and raisin cookies and Chewy oatmeal chocolate chip cookies! We must say, both flavors are to die for. Grace cookies are what we’ve been looking for. Freshly baked, delicious (not too sweet), healthy and affordable.
To place your orders, please call or text Leslie at 0915-210-4167.

Queen’s Menu
A lovely resto that serves lechon macau at 7:00 in the morning!
The environment is casual and the jazz music gave us the bistro vibe.
We ordered yang chow rice and lechon macau. The portion sizes were perfect and the price was reasonable!
Looking forward to our next visit!

Queen’s Menu is located at G/f MORE Business Center Bldg, Ortigas ave extension,Taytay, Philippines

We finally got to taste this sansrival from Chef Gene Gonzales of Café Ysabel! It’s just superb! Can’t believe that we finished the whole sansrival in one seating! We bought if from SM Hypermart for only Php140.00!

Ever seen a dancing wheel loader?
We were invited last week to attend the Foton’s Big Show 2013 at the World Trade Center and we were awed when we watched this monster dance!

Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Hello, everyone!

Before the Breast Cancer Awareness month ends, I would like to share with you these helpful tips on how to prevent breast cancer from www.mayoclinic.com.

Limit alcohol. The more alcohol you drink, the greater your risk of developing breast cancer. If you choose to drink alcohol — including beer, wine or liquor — limit yourself to no more than one drink a day.

Don’t smoke. Accumulating evidence suggests a link between smoking and breast cancer risk, particularly in premenopausal women. In addition, not smoking is one of the best things you can do for your overall health.

Control your weight. Being overweight or obese increases the risk of breast cancer. This is especially true if obesity occurs later in life, particularly after menopause.

Be physically active. Physical activity can help you maintain a healthy weight, which, in turn, helps prevent breast cancer. For most healthy adults, the Department of Health and Human Services recommends at least 150 minutes a week of moderate aerobic activity or 75 minutes of vigorous aerobic activity weekly, plus strength training at least twice a week.

Breast-feed. Breast-feeding may play a role in breast cancer prevention. The longer you breast-feed, the greater the protective effect.

Limit dose and duration of hormone therapy. Combination hormone therapy for more than three to five years increases the risk of breast cancer. If you’re taking hormone therapy for menopausal symptoms, ask your doctor about other options. You may be able to manage your symptoms with nonhormonal therapies, such as physical activity. If you decide that the benefits of short-term hormone therapy outweigh the risks, use the lowest dose that works for you.

Avoid exposure to radiation and environmental pollution. Medical-imaging methods, such as computerized tomography, use high doses of radiation, which have been linked with breast cancer risk. Reduce your exposure by having such tests only when absolutely necessary. While more studies are needed, some research suggests a link between breast cancer and exposure to the chemicals found in some workplaces, gasoline fumes and vehicle exhaust.

I lost my aunt because of breast cancer and I became more cautious about my health after that. I quit smoking four years ago and never drank a bottle of beer for nearly a decade.

Last Saturday, my husband (Migs), along with his band played for a benefit show for a friend who will undergo chemo therapy because of breast cancer. It is heartbreaking to see someone you love in pain.
I hope you share with every woman you know the importance of having their selves checked by a physician at least once a year.

Much love,

KPop Republic 2013 review

Artists: Soomin of April Kiss,Crispy Crunch, Dal Shabet, EXO K  and  SHINee

Date: September 7, 2013

Location: Smart Araneta Coliseum

I remember hearing Migs listen to some Korean groups like SG wannabe & fly to the sky. I find it weird because I was never a fan of KPop until last Saturday. I don’t get the point why a lot of Filipinos go gaga over these KPop groups. They’re everywhere! Splattered in every corner of the Internet, the TV set, magazines, water bottles, snack pouches, etc. you name it, their faces are on it.

When we were invited to attend the KPop Republic’s presscon, we grabbed the opportunity so we could have a better grasp of what KPop has to offer. The presscon was held at Gateway Mall’s Cinema 5. Although the event started late, Jinri Park was game for some chit chats while waiting for the artists to arrive. The presscon started and ended well.



Soo-min and Crispy Crunch

Dal Shabet
The concert was held at the Smart Araneta Coliseum , which is very accessible and has enough room for the concert goers. We even got a good spot near the stage for some photo ops.

At the concert hall, no time was wasted as the show started at exactly 7:30 PM. The audience were mostly teenagers having the time of their lives.

The event started with an act from Soomin of April Kiss and Crispy Crunch , followed by all female group Dal Shabet  who gave stuffed toys to the audience (note that the artists themselves carried the stuffed toys to the stage…no PA or whatsoever).



Third group to perform is the crowd favorite, EXO K . They even sang Yeng Constantino’s Hawak Kamay in accapela which we find cute! Although they are not complete, the fans gave their full support to this group. Final act is SHINee but sadly was missing a member, Min-ho due to a schedule conflict.






What we truly admire about these KPop artists is that they don’t need some additional back up dancers or booty shakers to keep the show going. Every artist owned the stage, danced and sang their hearts out like it’s their last performance! It’s evident that these Kpop groups are damn serious with their craft.

Maybe that’s one good reason why a lot of people (including my Mexican cholo looking husband) like them. Much respect to the performers.

In conclusion, the concert organizers did very well with KPop Republic. Security is good, ticket prizes are reasonable since you get to watch 4 Kpop groups and the venue is perfect.

If you weren’t a fan going in, there is a 99% chance that you will step out as a fan.


Happy weekend!
