Shocked, Awaken and Took Flight at Lopez Museum Art Exhibit GROUNDED

Grounded at the Lopez Memorial Museum

I was shocked, awaken and took flight as I browsed upon the art pieces at the Lopez Museum art exhibit GROUNDED. The exhibit is a collection of artworks by Alma Quinto, Goldie Poblador, Eric Zamuco, Barbara Hlali, Ahmed Alshaer, Khaled Hafez showcasing their interpretation of the word ‘Grounded.” The Lopez Museum also featured the works of famed artists such as Luna and Hidalgo among others in relation to the exhibit. This is not my first time to experience an art exhibit as I’ve been to other shows, including the ones presented by the Lopez Museum. But this one gave me a different experience. Shocked Electricity can get you grounded. And just as being electrocuted can give you a sudden nudge, I was shocked at Diyos, Choose, Dues by Toym Imao. Inspired by Michael Angelo’s Creation of Adam painting at the Sistine Chapel in Rome showing God touching Adam, the art ...

Great Food and Drinks + Hip Vibe = Mondo Juice + SIP Milk Tea Makati

I’ve talked about about Mondo Juice in my blog, calling it a healthy alternative to the proliferating coffee lifestyle in the city. Last year, I shared a better milk tea from SIP Milk Tea. Here’s good news! Both juice bar and milk tea shop are now in one location. It’s the perfect equation: great food and drinks + hip vibe = Mondo Juice + SIP Milk Tea Makati. Located along Rada (Thailand) Street in the midst of corporate Legaspi Village in Makati, you’ll find Mondo Juice and SIP Milk Tea in combined location. These cafes are actually owned and managed by one group, hence, it’s not a surprise to see them in one dining area. I was aware that the milk tea shop will be having a branch in Makati, but when I dropped by recently, I was surprised with what I saw. Entering the place, it’s one huge dining ...

EyeBags Project for School Children Rolled Out

Eye Bags Project

The EyeBags Project for school children has recently been rolled out by the Philippine Academy of Ophthalmology (PAO. It is a campaign that seeks to support the education of students from underprivileged families through the donation of various school materials. Eye doctors from all over the Philippines have committed to donate hundreds of unused bags from medical conferences that they attend every year as ‘green’ is incorporated into the advocacy. Dr. Johann Michael Reyes, PAO Committee Chair for Public Relations said “These convention bags are highly functional.  Instead of throwing these away, we thought of engaging all the eye doctors who are members of the PAO to donate the bags and reach out to Filipino school children in need of support. The project has grown tremendously that we have expanded to donating other school materials to help promote and enhance students’ learning experience in their schools.” Volunteers from  the  PAO and graduates from ...
