- Schick Exacta Parkour Challenge Do you still remember that feeling the day after your first visit to the gym? Your muscles wanting for more workout, looking forward to the next sesh. That was my experience days after Schick Exacta’s PARKOUR CHALLENGE.
For those who don’t know what Parkour is: Parkour (French pronunciation: ) is a French word meaning (obstacle) course. First used to train military but now slowly getting much acceptance especially after Casino Royale and Bourne Ultimatum used the discipline in their cool chase scenes. Parkour includes running, jumping, vaulting, swinging and rolling. Parkour is slowly becoming known here in the Philippines too. Actually Schick has an amazing ad using parker, watch it:

- PH Travel Idea: 3 Largest Lakes
Mountaineers can easily identify the three tallest mountains in the Philippines. most people are keen to know World and country trivia like the biggest whatever, smallest whatever or longest, etc.
Since we Filipinos have this adiction, might as well capitalize on this. Giving you an idea of the biggest lakes in the Philippines and how to visit them can make your travel plans exciting:
1. Laguna Lake
Actually, calling this Laguna Lake is redundant since laguna is the Spanish of lake. That is why we also hear people call this Laguna de Bay (Bay’s Lake- Bay is the old capital town of Laguna province). Not only that this is the largest lake in the country, but ...

- Lovin’ My Islander Slippers I want to be blunt here.
If you remember I wrote months ago about LOCALISM and supporting local products because it helps our economy and encourages patriotism too.
The truth is, there are still times when I use (or buy) imported products specially when the local ones are not as good as the imported ones. Reality check: It is really hard to support localism especially when everyone else has this colonial mentality.
Months ago, I was offered sponsorship by a local brand named ISLANDER. I believe you’ve heard about this brand before and believe that their slippers are more comfortable than your Brazilian-made ones. We are the same, we know that ISLANDER ...
