If you have an hour, will you not improve that hour, instead of idling it away?"  -- Lord Chesterfield
I barely have time to go get a massage and sometimes I can never find the right massage salon that I can spend an hour alone in. But spending time alone and enjoying the spa with meditation music and will help you  improve as a human being, a better version of yourself.  I just had the best experience, start to finish. I can't thank Mauie enough for inviting me to  ISLANDS MASSAGE AND MOBILE DAY SPA and going to the spa isn't as fun without Ryan and Ria
When I'm going to a med spa, I want to get in and out.  When I'm going to a day spa, I want to be leisure and take my time.  ISLANDS MASSAGE AND MOBILE DAY SPA is everything I want in a spa; it's beautiful and inviting, and efficient service.

Bounty Chicken Slides

This is very interesting so I figured I'd post this here..Bounty Fresh, producer of the Chooks To Go roasted chicken, a multi-awarded poultry integrator and the winner of the 2009 Asian Livestock Industry Award, Asia’s premier and most prestigious award for outstanding achievements in the livestock industry, has raised yet another step higher its standard of quality with the Halal accreditation of three of its poultry processing plants. The Islamic Da’wah Council of the Philippines (IDCP) has issued Halal accreditation to the 3J Dressing Plant facility in San Pablo, Laguna which serves and supplies dressed chicken for the areas of Laguna, Batangas, Cavite and Rizal; the Alzona Poultry Processing Plant in General Santos; and the Red Rooster Dressing Plant in Davao which both serve and supply dressed chicken in the Mindanao area. With this accreditation, you can be sure your dressed chicken and Chooks To Go roasted chicken in these areas are Halal certified.

All Bounty Fresh processing plants are GMP and HACCP compliant. But the company does not stop here. In keeping with its mission of providing quality food products to the discriminating Filipino consumer, Bounty Fresh continues to improve and upgrade its facilities, products and services to the level of excellence its customers deserve. As the Brotherhood Halal Lifestyle Magazine (April to June 2010 issue) states, “more than providing guidance on what is permissible for consumption (under Islamic law and standards), Halal certification has also been accepted as a way of determining the quality of a certain food product or service”.
Bounty Fresh, Asia’s best, will continue to strive to have all of its processing plants Halal certified. It’s their way of saying that we care.

Bounty Fresh Chicken conducts first quad-media event

Embracing the healthy lifestyle starts with shopping for healthier food options, from the freshest greens and fruits to the cleanest meats and poultry. Bounty Fresh Chicken, a Filipino-owned company and one of the leading and fastest growing suppliers of high quality chicken products, stayed true to such principle by providing only the best poultry products to Filipinos. Fresh from winning the very prestigious Ernst &Young Entrepreneur of the Year 2010 award, , the 2009 Asian Livestock Awardee revealed its best practices and its secrets as to why they are known as Asia’s Best in the broiler integrator category in its recently concluded multi-media event called “1st Online Product Launce and Quad-Media Day.”

Bounty Fresh Chicken held the event at the classy & popular Chef’s Table Restaurant in The Fort. Friends from the media and top bloggers had a fun, prize-laden and educational experience. Aside from bringing home great freebies from Bounty Fresh, they learned delicious and healthy chicken recipes personally prepared and demonstrated by popular TV celebrity gourmet chef, Bruce Lim. Lucky guests went away with special prizes for participating in the games and raffle. A wellness talk given by respected nutritionist Joan Sumpio was one of the highlights of the day’s program, which stresses the importance of chicken meat, nutrition and finding the right product in the market. A ‘Best Blog Post’ Contest was also launched.
Some of Bounty Fresh’s well-loved chicken variants are its whole dressed chicken and its chicken nuggets and hotdogs. They also have chicken cut-ups great for Filipinos’ all-time favorite ‘Chicken Tinola’, traditionally cooked with green papaya and dahon ng sili.

“From the day Bounty Fresh Foods was established in 1996, the company has always been committed in providing clean and fresh chicken and chicken-related products processed from its own state-of-the-art hatchery, broiler farms, and processing plants to make sure our standard of quality are met at all times,” says Bounty Fresh Brand Marketing Group Head Patricia Cheng.

“We would like to be known as a company that adheres to the highest standards of freshness and quality. We commit to offer healthy food choices and the best chicken products in the market. We make it as our humble contribution to nation-building by inspiring Filipino families to live a healthy lifestyle, by providing more jobs and business opportunities across the country, and by showcasing Filipino ingenuity and value of hard work and honesty.”

Bounty Fresh Dressed Whole Chickens are processed in its state-of-the-art and world-class facilities. The unique processing methods include triple washing carefully grown chickens (first of its kind) and vacuum-packing immediately to preserve the freshness and flavour. “With this world-class vacuum packing process which I think is our advantage over our nearest competitors, we guarantee the consumers that what they are getting is the freshest and cleanest chicken in the market,” said Dondi Alentajan, Bounty Fresh’s Group Marketing Manager.

Bounty Fresh also offers Fresh Chicken Cut-ups, Chicken Nuggets, Corned Chicken, Juicy Liempo and Super Legs and is found in all major supermarkets and groceries nationwide. The company is also behind the success of Chooks-To-Go, a popular 900-strong roast chicken chain famous for its ‘Masarap kahit walang sauce’ flavour.

Bounty Fresh Chicken chose world-renowned talent Lea Salonga as their latest endorser as seen in their recent commercials. Asia’s finest, homegrown prodigy representing Asia’s Best Chicken, a fitting tribute indeed.

2010’s “The Tour of Hope” Continues to Push the Pedal against Cervical Cancer

When it comes to the fight against cervical cancer, people are hitting the road to defeat this disease.

With “The Tour of Hope”, a cycling tour event which aims to spread cervical cancer awareness, individuals from different walks of life are rallying to stop the spread of one of the leading women killers here in the country. And with sufficient awareness, surveillance, advocacy and prevention, twelve Filipinas today, tomorrow, and the days to come will be spared from the fatal grip of this female disease.

About Cervical Cancer

- Cervical cancer is the second most common female cancer worldwide, with half a million new cases and 250,000 deaths reported each year. Over 80% of cases occur in developing countries including the Philippines.
- Up to 80% of women will have HPV in their lifetime, the virus that causes cervical cancer.
- More than half of the women with cervical cancer will die within 5 years after diagnosis.
- Everyday, 12 Filipina die of cervical cancer. It’s ranked as the second most common female cancer afflicting Filipino women.
- Early Cervical Cancer produces no signs or symptoms.
- The Human Papilloma Virus or HPV, is the cause of cervical cancer.
The Tour of Hope

The Tour of Hope (TTOH) is a non-profit initiative of a group of like-minded people of various backgrounds to set-up bicycle tours in order to increase awareness and raise funds for health prevention and education projects benefiting resource limited communities. The event is a joint project of CIF/CECAP, Bravehearts, GlaxoSmithKline Philippines, and in strategic partnership with Team David’s Salon, the Philippine’s first all-women multi-sport team, dedicated in promoting sports and at the same time sharing a passion for health and wellness.

The bikers raised more than half a million pesos thru pledges and sponsorships and all proceeds of the event will be donated to CIF/CECAP for cervical cancer screening services in low resource settings. Eight lectures were conducted in each stop of the tour and more than 1,000 women were informed about cervical cancer and how this disease can be prevented through healthy living, regular screening and vaccination. Meanwhile, an initial number of 50 municipal health workers have been vaccinated using the funds raised from the event.

For 2010, The Tour of Hope’s theme is “The Tour of Hope 360: Fighting Cervical Cancer in Full Circle”. On March 20-24, 2010, hundreds of people from different walks of life will travel in a 500-kilometer cycling tour from Manila to Baguio inspired by the same goal.


- A non-government organization, Bravehearts is dedicated to raise awareness on cervical cancer prevention. Bravehearts is currently supported by a growing number of women, including prominent personalities such as Sen. Loren Legarda, Rina Jimenez David, Ellen Tordesillas, Atty.Gaby Concepcion, Tessa Prieto David, Abbygale Arenas de Leon and Suzi Entrata.

The Cancer Institute Foundation (CIF) for the Cervical Cancer Prevention (CECAP) Network Program

- Founded in 2001, the CIF is a non-stock, non-profit organization based in Manila, Philippines which supports the Cancer Institute (CI) of the Philippine General Hospital (PGH) and its accredited cancer management network institutions with clinical, research, advocacy and financial assistance for the prevention and treatment of cancer.

- This commitment springs from the Foundation’s view that the promotion of health and welfare is a responsibility not of just one but all: that the government, individuals or groups, given a vehicle like the foundation, they will generously share their time, efforts and resources with their fellowmen who are ill but have little means to get well.

- The Cervical Cancer Prevention (CECAP) Network Program is one of its major programs which is in collaboration with numerous health organizations, both in the government and private sectors, and other concerned local and international groups all working together to eradicate cervical cancer in the country. The CECAP provides a comprehensive approach in combating this disease, through advocating proper education about healthy lifestyle, providing quality cervical cancer services such as counseling, screening linked to treatment and vaccination and through research.
