PR: Small-town Locals of Butuan Build “Court of Inspiration”


Through these projects, the campaign aims to give members of communities in different parts of our country pride in having personally built something that doesn’t just hone their skills, but builds their character as well.



“I was impressed at people’s willingness to jump at the opportunity to serve their community at our project in Butuan and I believe I’d witness the same level of enthusiasm in the communities where succeeding Courts of Inspiration are to be built,” says Kristine Martinez, Alaxan FR Product Director.

Driven by the desire to provide their community with its first real basketball court, locals from Barangay Ampayon in Butuan are brought together to build their own “Court of Inspiration” under the Aray Natin, Galing Natin campaign -- a collaborative effort between small-town locals and Alaxan FR to construct these symbols of community and turn them into something that moves people to aim for greatness.

“Maganda rin ‘to lalo na sa kabataan, para malayo sila sa mga bisyo” (This is also good for the youth, that they may be steered away from vices) says Bgy. Captain Samuel Allan Amante, who led his people into volunteering.  Drug use is currently high among teens in Bgy. Ampayon, and the local government see the project as a means of sending the youth into the right direction.


Barangay Ampayon is just one of the many places that Alaxan FR is eyeing for the construction of Courts of Inspiration.  For Visayas, the first basketball court was unveiled recently in Iloilo.  Soon to rise are courts in Bacolod, Dumaguete, Tacloban, and Cebu. In Mindanao, construction will begin shortly in the communities of Davao, Cagayan de Oro, Zamboanga and Saranggani.

PH | Bang's Tony & Jackey Beauty Salon's Aqua Volume Rebond

I've always had ruly, unmanageable hair for as long as I can remember, hence the introduction of rebonding services here in PH is a blessing.  I've been having my hair rebonded or relaxed once a year since 2002.  It's an expense that I make sure is always included in the yearly luxury budget.

Whereas before I used to have my hair rebonded at a David's Salon (since they always deliver consistently great results), I had to stop and look to other establishments when they eventually jacked up their prices (what used to cost me Php3,000 is now priced at Php5,000 to Php6,000, depending on the branch!).  Too much for my already hurting wallet.  Hence, the need to try other salons.  I've been happy with the results, so far.

The one thing though. that always gets me though is how lifeless and limp my hair tends to look when newly treated.  It's always the case wherever I have my tresses done.  It will look it's best at least a month or 2 after treatment.  It was onl…

Style for Less: Ballerina Flats (Tory Burch vs Kamiseta)

Have you ever noticed how fashionable high-end items just keep on being reinvented by some other brand.  Well after having my eyes checked for fear of seeing doubles (normal daw sabi ni Doc), I decided to scour through the malls in search of fashion doppelgangers.

THE SPLURGE: Tory Burch's Reva ballerina flats (USD195 or around Php9,000)

When well-known American fashion designer Tory Burch released her line of Reva ballerina flats, it was an instant hit.  Known for its incredibly comfortable material and structure with a nicely padded sole and an elasticized heel, these babies made a killing and everyone wanted one. 

How to Apply for a Philippine Postal ID Card

I've said it once and I'll say it again, woe to the newly married woman who has, for years, have gotten so used to her surname only to find that a single (wedding) day, will change this familiarity forever.

I have to admit, it was not easy for me to adapt to a new surname, due mainly for professional reasons.  Throughout my profession career, I have been known by my maiden name and to have to inform all my contacts of the change was, well, too tiresome.  And so I decided to go the hypenated route and I eventually ended up with 2 surnames.  Such was the compromise!  =)
