Discovering Lee Hecht Harrison’s Career Transition Service

A Lee Hecht Harrison Group Program

I have experienced a lot as a working professional. I’ve been told that it’ll be my last day of work. I also experienced being part of a team that will be reorganized. During those times, I felt devastated, confused and stressed. Obviously, it hurts to be let go.

GMA To The Top Cycle 3 Happenings and Updates

GMA 7 - To The Top Cycle 3 Updates

I got to sit down and watch GMA To The Top last Saturday and Sunday. I’m really enjoying the Kapuso network’s first multi-platform boy band competition in the Philippines and knowing that the week will be the show’s first elimination round, I don’t want to miss it. I’m sure last week’s episodes were quite nerve-wracking for the contestants because there’s a lot at stakes to all these hopefuls. But I’m sure it was delightful experience as well just looking at their performances. GMA To The Top Cycle 3 happenings and updates are to the brim. The first multi-platform boy band competition in the Philippines is one exciting show. The theme for Cycle 3 performances revolved in the APO Hiking Society songs, sung a cappella. To be honest, I was expecting to just watch each group sing, nothing more. I mean, no dancing or any kind of movements. It would have been a breather ...

GMA 7 - To The Top

GMA 7’s To The Top: the first multi-platform boy band competition is on a roll. I talked about the moves of the Boys of To The Top on a previous post. But of course, the most important of all are the performances in the show. The group performances matters a lot to win. I got to watch their first performance in what I learned was actually the first cycle of the show, too bad the videos I captured were lost as my memory card got corrupted. It’s a good thing GMA Network posted them on YouTube. Check out the GMA To The Top performances Cycle 1 and 2. The boys were grouped into 3. Bryan Olano, AJ Ajrouche, Lance Busa, Luis Gragera, Louie Pedroso and Chris Yumang were part of Team A.

The Moves of the Boys of To The Top

the boys of to the top

Have you watched GMA 7’s To The Top? I’ve been trying to catch up every Saturday and Sunday whenever I’m home. I do love music and great performances. So far I’ve seen great performances and some that needs improvement on the show. Well, that’s why the coaches are there, to hone the boys’ skills and talents. But one of the things I enjoy watching are the moves of the Boys of To The Top. I let you in on a secret. I’m a performer – I act, dance and sometimes sing. But I love dancing. That’s one talent that I’ve showcased even as a kid. I enjoyed the dances in the 80s – the robot, punk rock, the moonwalk and more! I was a teenager back then. In college, I became part of a performance group in the church where I did interpretative dance. Hahaha! Those memories made me laugh. Not that my moves ...

a jigger of Organique Acai Premium Blend

The King of Superfoods is now in a drink in the form of Organique Acai Premium Blend. I’m referring to acai (pronounced ah-sah-ee), a small, dark purple berries said to be rich in antioxidants. I’ve heard of this berry years back and is actually being sold as a supplement in capsule form. Back then, it’s not readily available in the country and is very expensive. Learning that it is now available in the Philippines is good news. The acai is the tallest palm tree in the Amazon jungle that can grow up to 80 feet. For centuries, it has been part of the indigenous people of Brazil’s diet. Cathy Salimbangon, Vice-President for Marketing of Organique Inc shared, “They consume it regularly and it is what they use to remedy aches and pains, from infection to stomach problems.” The berry is considered at the top of list when talking about superfoods because it ...
