Leading science and healthcare innovation company Merck join forces with the Department of Health (DOH), Philippine Thyroid Association (PTA), Philippine Society of Endocrinology, Diabetes, and Metabolism (PSEDM), and the Iodine Global Network (IGN), to raise consciousness against thyroid disorders. This collaboration is time for the International Thyroid Awareness Week (ITAW) 2017.
Infection can develop in any kind of wound. Infection occurs when bacteria enters the wound through an opening in one’s skin. Though there are a number of precautions to prevent wound infection from developing, still when bacteria spreads, it may lead to a more serious disease.
This happened to my Firstborn when he was just about seven years old. He would easily get hurt, be exposed to different types of wounds, and get an infection after. I learned that it is not only prudent to wash the wound well with antibacterial soap and water. Cleaning is simply not enough. It is essential to apply a topical antibiotic at the first sign of wound infection.
What our Pedia recommends
Last Sunday, my family went out for lunch. We haven’t been to U.P. Town Center so we opted to visit the place and have our lunch there. The place was jam-packed and most diners were full. We waited for an hour to be seated and almost 30 minutes for our food to be served. That perhaps has always been the course of events come Mother’s Day.
Our moms are the most selfless, compassionate, and resilient individuals. Thus, perhaps on Mother’s Day, we really do our best to make them feel special. Nevermind the long line and wait or jam-packed malls. But more than celebrating Mother’s Day outside, another way to do that is by giving them a gift that endures – the gift of a happier life. We have here a few simple tips to make that happen not only on Mother’s Day but anytime of the year.
I was scammed.
That was how husband and mother described my booking transaction with Expedia. I booked last December 29 for a family room in one hotel in Subic. I filled out the necessary online form and gave my credit card details. There was an assurance that the amount will not be deducted until I confirm my booking. Confirming my booking meant receiving an email acknowledging my inquiry. Then I will be directed to the site, choose the itinerary, and from there I will tick and confirm booking.
A few minutes after my inquiry, I received and email detailing my booking was confirmed. The email also informed me that I could not cancel my booking anymore. This caused so much stress on my part. My husband and mother, who are both not used to transacting online, blamed me. Both told me I was too trusting.
I kept my silence. This mother did not want to argue with them.
Everything has two sides.
I must say I am thankful that I decided to join the fanatics and gamers as they welcome back the coming of Ragnarok Online. I learned something I never imagined I would gain in such an event.
Everything has two sides
The very amiable Kamphee Phiromwad, Managing Director of Electronics Extreme, started the press conference with a video about a gamer and the people around him. The gamer’s loved ones cannot understand his love for gaming, while his friends and guild support him all the way. The short yet touching video showed that everything contains a good and a bad depending on how one views it. After watching the flick, I now had a better view of how gamers think, feel, and speak. Indeed, everything has two sides. And I am just glad I was able to understand the other side.
We just love anything cold and refreshing. And with summer’s scorching heat around, there’s nothing more delightful than sipping something cold and fruity. Good thing our friends from Fly Ace Corporation sent a few bottles of Old Orchard Cranberry Juice to quench our thirst for something sweet and tart. We could have this drink anytime of the day to complement our dishes from breakfast, lunch and even dinner. We also got a copy of some easy-to-prepare Summer Cooler recipes. And we are sharing these recipes with you. Surely, whether you’re at home, on a vacation-out-of-town, or at a get-together party, these delightful non-alcoholic infusions would be a good company and help bring along the fun!
This post has long been overdue. I should have posted this last April, very timely for the summer season. Though we could still feel the scorching heat, it can’t be denied that occasional rainfall occurs now. This signals the rainy season is fast approaching. Anyway, I still would like to share with you one happy post.
More than a month ago, Momi Berlin received a complete line of the Euky Bear Blitz Nitz products. The brand is clinically proven to kill head lice. Each has natural essential oils and does not contain chemical pesticides or insecticides that may be harmful to children or users. This Australian made and owned product is suitable for children two years and up and is available in the country in select specialty stores within the Metro.
Sharing Blitz Nitz through social media
Sharing is good, and with digital technology, sharing is easy.
Momi Berlin shared a few facts about head lice and how they are treated. She wrote this via PSST.Ph, an online magazine where she regularly contributes as a writer. After a few days, she received an email from a concerned mother asking more about the topic. It turned out that her seven-year-old daughter is suffering from head lice. With no one to give the set she got from Koofty Enterprise, this mom decided to share the shampoo, lotion, and spray to her new friend. And it was only last week that the mother and daughter shared their Blitz Nitz experience. Now, I am sharing their story to you.
It’s the 21st century but there are still some questions women feel uncomfortable asking their doctors. Strange smells, mysterious bumps, or odd bodily functions may be a bit embarrassing to speak about but keeping these concerns to yourself may lead to bigger health problems.
Makati Medical Center, the Philippines’ premier healthcare institution, with Sonia E. Bongala, MD of the MakatiMed Department of Obstetrics & Gynecology helps us out by tackling the medical questions women are too afraid or embarrassed to ask.
Embarrassing medical questions
Who wouldn’t love that perfect summer barbecue party at the comforts of your home?
It was more than a month ago when we had our barbecue party at the small house. And the boys so loved the experience. So last Sunday when we had our grocery, we bought all the essentials we would be needing for our next summer barbecue party. From food to spices, supplies and other essentials, we got all we need at our favorite Rustan’s Supermarket.
