A trip to ALA Skin Care

RIGHT at the outskirts of Welcome Rotonda is Wellness City, a fitness gym and a beauty clinic that is strategically located right at the boundary of the cities of Manila and Quezon.

The beauty clinic goes by the name ALA Skin Care. ALA is named after the initials of its founder, dermatologist Alberto L. Adrales.

What makes the skin clinic unique, however, is that it has treatment specially made for men, and that was something I tried when I paid a visit there.

Because I had to attend a soccer coverage that time, I failed to meet Adrales in person, but the staff present still provided me with the facial treatment.

First, the usual things being done in a facial, like sprinkling your face with warm water and the removal of the pimples.
But what makes this facial unique, however, is the inclusion of a mask machine that aims to revitalize your face.
No! I'm not trying to cosplay Jason Voorhees for Halloween.
Unlike the other facial treatment that I've been, my face became clearer here at ALA.
Aside from the basic facial, ALA also offers specialized facials like the oxygen-revitalizing facial, the cryptofusion diamond peel and facial, and platinum peel and facial.

ALA also offers a fat-burning treatment called the multi-shape radiofrequency and thermal blanket.

ALA even offers fitness-oriented life coaching. After all, ALA's mission is "to provide complete healing of the body, mind, and soul."

ALA Skin Care--and the entire Wellness City area--is located at 4 E. Rodriguez Sr. Ave., Quezon City, just beside KFC. For inquiries, call (02)2561940 or 09178446060 or go to its Facebook page (Wellness City) and its Twitter page: @wellnesscityph.

Why you should save thresher sharks

DESPITE classifying a certain animal as an endangered specie, illegal trades continue to be rampant, further harming the said specie.

The thresher shark is one of them.

Because of their fins, fishing for thresher sharks has been very frequent in most parts of the planet.

One of the only places where the said sharks are considered "sacred" is the Monad Shoal in Cebu, where the residents of the nearby Malapascua Island have been continuously doing efforts in conserving them, eventually turning the spot into a diving haven.

However, that's just one side of the story.

The road to bringing back thresher sharks to life is long, but a new proposal will help in further saving the sharks.

The said proposal will regulate the fishing for the thresher sharks, and WE want you to support it.

I have been an advocate of saving the endangered species, and I believe the yes vote to this proposal, which will be presented at the Conference of Parties next week, is beneficial for our Cebuano friends.

Why? Aside from environmental factors, the Monad Shoal is responsible for 80 percent of the Malapascua Island residents' source of income, and for a group of people who have quickly moved on from the wrath of Typhoon Yolanda in 2013, your yes vote will further motivate them in conserving the sharks.

Meanwhile, a no vote could mean opening the doors of Malapascua to unsustainable thresher shark fishing, further sending the sharks close to extinction.

We should send a strong message to the Philippine delegation to the COP that we want thresher shark fishing regulated.

For now, here are some tips to help save the sharks.

Change the way you see happiness

WHEN I started this travel and lifestyle blog, all I do is to post my happy moments inside theme parks, hotels, vacation places, and various events.

But when I activate my alter ego (my sportswriter self, that is), it's all sports in my news site.

However, there are times that my photographers want to take a day off, and I am in my lonesome and being forced to take photos... using my phone!

So, with all the photos I took on my mobile device, the photo below is the most memorable one.
This is a photo of one of the scheduled games during the 2015 UFL All-Star Saturday. One hundred kids from the UFL Youth League took on 11 players from the seniors. It was a cute moment to see the next generation soccer stars playing with their heroes. Everyone went home with smiles.

It may not be as beautiful as you think (my phone is kinda low-end), but it's simply memorable, and it changed the way I see happiness.

The 100 vs. 11 picture changed the way I see mobile photography, just like the Huawei P9.

Its camera is co-engineered with Leica. It has dual lenses that produces high quality photos and allow users to take amazing monochrome, slo-mo, colored, light painting photos among others.

So get ready for a revolution in mobile photography with Huawei P9.
