Why Dolls Have Stood the Test of Time as a Gift

A pony may be the ultimate birthday or Christmas dream gift but when it comes to a more realistic option a doll is always first choice. Whether it’s a vintage porcelain figure or a classic Barbie, a doll is still one of the most requested girls’ toys.

A girl’s best friend

Although children now live in an always-connected online world the endurance of that little doll as a gift has in no way been diminished. Dolls allow girls to create their own world with an ever-present friend and they provide a great deal of entertainment at very little cost. In fact in terms of value for money and long-term use a doll is a wise (and fun!) investment as a toy. The other bonus is the wealth of choice available and you’re always going to find something to suit your child’s imagination and your budget.

Added fun with accessories

Dolls such as Barbie provide long-term entertainment value mainly due to the amount of accessories available. Low cost add-ons mean you can buy gifts throughout the year or whenever Barbie needs a change of career, such as from an air-hostess into fashion model. Other dolls can be treated to new clothes, toy prams, plastic cars, miniatures houses and, well, pretty much anything imaginable! Who knows, your daughter’s doll might even end up being a collector’s item in the future.

An enduring gift

Many of these toys will become a cherished childhood plaything and some will be kept for years after your child has grown up. There’s definitely something familiar and comforting about that favorite doll that has been well looked after during childhood and brings back happy memories as an adult. Of course some toys can actually go on to become collector’s items and those vintage models can be worth a lot of money. But for a child it’s not about the money, it’s about having a constant companion and a familiar friend who’s always there, ready to be played with.

If you’re stuck for a present for your daughter, granddaughter or niece then look no further than the gift that will stand the test of time. Girls will always remember the person who bought their favorite doll and it may not be a pony but it’s definitely the next best thing.

Filipinos High Optimism on Pensions

If you’re not considering investing on pensions, better re-think and study its advantages. If you can save on banks, why not on retirement plans?

The majority of Filipino investors are satisfied with their government pension – but that sentiment is based on specific assumptions and a cash-dominant approach to retirement working out, according to the latest Manulife Investor Sentiment Index.*

Two-thirds of respondents said that they are confident that their government pension would be enough to meet their needs upon retirement – the highest level of all surveyed markets. In contrast, across all surveyed markets the proportion of confident investors was less than 40 percent, and as low as one-in-ten in some markets.

While such optimism seems positive, the survey shows it is based on some risky assumptions. First, investors expect their retirement income to be relatively high, at 92% of their current income – the highest estimate among all surveyed markets (Asia average 69%). Second, they expect their retirement expenses to be relatively low, at just 61 percent of their current income, at the lower end of surveyed markets (Asia average 66%). Third, nearly all (95%) said that in retirement they expect to rely on private healthcare – by contrast, in every other market only a minority expected to rely on private healthcare (Asia average 38%).

“Filipino investors have high estimates of their retirement income. Even if these turn out to be right, they may not be enough to cover their actual costs,” said Ryan Charland, CEO of Manulife Philippines. “Today, people generally expect their retirement to be active, and that means expenses will likely be much higher than what many realize. In addition, healthcare tends to cost a lot more than people expect. In Asia healthcare costs have risen about twice the rate of inflation over the past 10 years. Of course, it’s even more expensive if you go private.”

The survey highlights that Filipino investors have a high degree of reliance on their government pension, with only one in five owning an additional, private pension plan. Instead, many expect to fall back on other, less assured, largely cash-forms of income, notably savings (which they expect to make up 37% of their retirement income) and inheritance (12% of their retirement income) – in both cases the highest reliance of any surveyed markets. This cash-dominant approach to retirement is reinforced by the finding that, on receiving their pension, Philippine investors plan to deposit nearly half into the bank, the second-highest level of all markets (Asia average 35%).

“We know that Filipino investors like to hold cash and are among the most cash-heavy investors in Asia. The latest survey shows us they also plan to be Asia’s most cash-reliant investors when retired,” said Mr. Charland. “Keeping cash in the bank provides minimal returns, which may not even keep up with inflation. Their retirement optimism would have a sounder basis with a more balanced portfolio, especially given that retirement today can last 30 years or more.”

About Manulife Investor Sentiment Index in Asia

Manulife’s Investor Sentiment Index in Asia is a quarterly, proprietary survey measuring and tracking investors’ views across eight markets in the region on their attitudes towards key asset classes and related issues. The Index is calculated as a net score (% of “Very good time” and “Good time” minus % of “Bad time” and “Very bad time”) for each asset class. The overall index is calculated as an average of the index figures of asset classes. A positive number means a positive sentiment, zero means a neutral sentiment, and a negative number means negative sentiment.

The Manulife ISI is based on 500 online interviews in each market of Hong Kong, China, Taiwan, Japan, and Singapore; in Malaysia, Indonesia and the Philippines it is conducted face-to-face. Respondents are middle class to affluent investors, aged 25 years and above who are the primary decision maker of financial matters in the household and currently have investment products.

The Manulife ISI is a long-established research series in North America. The Manulife ISI has been measuring investor sentiment in Canada for the past 15 years, and extended this to its John Hancock operation in the U.S. in 2011. Asset classes taken into Manulife ISI Asia calculations are stocks/equities, real estate (primary residence and other investment properties), mutual funds/unit trusts, fixed income investment and cash.

A Must-Have Holy Land Jewelry

It will always be an interesting and exciting fact, especially for younger generations, on learning how Jesus Christ was born and live as a normal person.

There are testimonies which were passed from generations to generations and bible and books were published to present how our Christ came into our world to save us.

We have learned that Jesus Christ was born in a humble manger in Bethlehem in Judea. Historians may have different versions on where exactly Jesus was born but one thing is very right, a savior came and never walked away.

About Heart of Grace Cross

It’s a blessing to receive a jewelry from Holy Land. Just the touch of it made me proud to be a Christian. Heart of Grace Cross is a beauty that will always remind me to believe that a savior is alive and embracing those who may or may not believe in Him. A reminder to live in Christian way.

This cross is both lovely and unusual, a modern pendant with an old-world feel. The design of a heart carefully placed at the center of the cross symbolizes that the love of Christ is within our hearts forevermore. But that’s not all – a Nativity Stone has been carefully set within the heart! You will have the opportunity to share the story of Jesus’ miraculous birth, when people ask about the stone. How excited they will be to hear that the stone is an authentic Nativity Stone that was excavated just feet away from the star that marks Christ’s birthplace in the Manger Room in the Cave of the Nativity.

Where Nativity Stone Came From?

In 1963, a wall was excavated in the Manger Room of the Cave of the Nativity in Bethlehem, just a few feet away from the star that now marks the birthplace of our Lord, Jesus Christ. The stones excavated from that one-time renovation were given to a well-known philanthropist in the USA. Known as the Nativity Stones, these stones have been authenticated by authorities in the Holy Land and at the Vatican.

A Beautiful Gift

Nativity Stones were carefully set in exquisite pendants to wear close to your heart. Regardless of it’s price, Christian jewelry products made with Nativity Stones are great gift to your loved ones or to yourself!

Included with your order for each pendant: 22″ Rope Chain, Certificate of Authenticity, Explanatory Booklet.

How NaturHouse Can Help You Get Back In Shape

If you’re aiming to get back in shape, here’s an inspiring story for you.

Ethan Manzano, a 29-year old certified public accountant and audit manager shared with us his weight-loss journey.

“Two years ago, I used to weigh around 205 lbs., “ he said.  “It was about that time that I agreed to try out Natur House Philippines, which was just about to be formally launched then.”   

He admitted that it might take some time before he could lose the 20 lbs. that he hoped to lose. However with patience, passion, drive and determination, he was able to achieve his ideal weight of 175 lbs, which is proportional to his height of 5’8”.

He recalled during his college days, he had a fit body when he still had the time to play basketball and engage in other physical activities. When he started to work, he noticed that his metabolism slowed down and his busy schedule made it difficult for him to engage in sports.  His stressful environment also proved to be the reason why he turned to eating as a way to come with stress.

Good for him, he was able to discover food supplements of Natur House, a global brand with more than 2000 outlets worldwide . Naturhouse was more than a food supplement. With the aid of their personalized nutritionists, Ethan was introduced to a healthier lifestyle.

Every week, while Ethan was on the weight-loss challenge program, he was told to engage in physical activities like brisk walking and jogging and to strictly follow a diet regimen which was changed every week, depending on the results of his body to the diet.

For the first week, he only ate fruits, vegetables, cereals, white meat and drank two liters of water every day.  These and with the help of food supplements in the form of tablets and liquids provided for him by NaturHouse that week and with exercise, Manzano lost 5 pounds in just one week. Amazing!

In the second week, his diet was almost the same and he was given a new set of supplements. On the third week, he was allowed to eat fish, pork and beef with less oil and half a cup of rice during lunch.  Finally, on the fourth week, he was allowed to eat anything and everything, albeit in moderation.  On the last day after he was allowed to eat anything, he was asked to take a crash diet of just eating three mangoes or a big watermelon for one day.  The following week, his diet was back to normal where he could eat anything in moderation with the right food supplements from NaturHouse.

naturhouse

“What makes Natur House unique from the other weight-loss centers in the market is that it is not only a food store but it provides a personalized service based on the clients’ body weight or structure,” says Rick Cabanban, Natur House Philippines Project Leader.

Natur House, located at SM North EDSA in Quezon City, provides the client with the assistance of a licensed dietitian and nutritionist inside the store who gives a free assessment.

“They create a personalized diet plan and recommend the food supplements based on the assessment. These nutritionists tailor-fit the diet and the supplements based on the needs of the clients and they don’t believe in single supplement. They encourage variety, ” he explains.

Consulting a nutritionist at Natur House is free of charge. Usually, a nutritionist at a medical center who will give you a diet plan will cost you around P1,500, that’s for a trial program only.

“It is expensive to consult a nutritionist, but now it can be achieved. Our target markets are B and C. During the cost of the method or program system, say the problem is four kilos overweight, we guarantee .6 to one kilo loss weight. So another two months for stabilization (maintenance), that would cost roughly P1,125 per week. That is still cheap as compared to other slimming programs. Here, you just spend 15 minutes per week to a nutritionist who will recommend you the right products,” he says.

Filipinos are really health-conscious. However, they don’t know the food supplements to be considered. “Most of us have the tendency to self-medicate. Sometimes we starve ourselves and when we don’t see the results, we get frustrated. In Natur House, the nutritionist calls the client to check. If there’s any problem, we restructure everything,” Cabanban says. Natur House also encourages its clients to eat five meals a day. During maintenance period, the client goes back to regular eating method.”By that time, the clients’ body has already gotten use to eating in small portions and everything in moderation.”

A global health brand with more than 2,000 outlets worldwide and over four million clients, Natur House has finally reached the Philippines, the foreign company’s first venture in Asia. It is also planning to open 140 stores nationwide, either company or franchised-owned.

One of the best-selling products at Natur House is the Garcinia Cambogia food supplement from the highest quality plants in Asia which contains an extract called Hydroxcitric Acid (HCA) which blocks fat development by inhibiting the enzyme ATP citrate lyase from converting carbohydrates into fat. When we eat too much carbs and sugars, the body just puts these away as fat. The  fat-making process is halted by the HCA in Garcinia Cambogia. Cholesterol is a result of having too much sugar and fat in one’s diet,” said Cabanban.

“Our price range is comparable with other food supplements in the market. The idea is we have the same objective but to get a free nutritionist is an added feature. Natur House does not require any franchise fee when you want to open a business selling our products.  Our advocacy is healthy eating and provide jobs for nutritionists,” adds Cabanban.

The Unique Beauty of Wooden Timepieces

Watches are common accessories for both men and women. There are even cute ones in bright colors and cartoon character design for children. The usual timepieces are made of materials like steel, rubber, and plastic. A new entrant in the market is the wooden watch. Wood might not sound like a good material for such an accessory, but one look at the gallery of wooden watches will definitely fascinate everyone. There is a certain charm that is unique to these timepieces.

There are wooden watches with the case and strap made of wood and the internal components made of the conventional materials. There are also those that are crafted entirely out of wood both inside and outside. All-wood watches are, of course, more expensive and are commonly made to order. The various woods that are used in these watches include bamboo, sandalwood, mahogany, and cherry. The differences in the grains and shades of these woods are combined to come up with stylish designs and patterns. There are also those that add special touches like luminous paint on the dials for glow-in-the dark numbers and hands. These wooden watches are definitely not boring and monotonous.

Just like the JORD Wood Watches at www.woodwatches.com.


Among their beautiful pieces is the Ely Series. The Ely series is JORD’s elegant, small-face design. This is that kind of watch that makes you grin for no apparent reason. Light, sexy, and compact design makes this a popular, everyday watch. There are no numbers on this watch other than the date.

1379331_238749796312667_1954308195_n

  • Hardened, Scratch-proof glass face: 26mm diameter
  • Frame / bezel: 34mm diameter
  • Band width: 21.5mm
  • Lug ends: 40mm
  • Single action locking clasp (stainless steel)
  • Premium Citizen Miyota movement with date window

I have an Ely Series Natural Green and Maple!

ely-25-front-angled

Each JORD watch is designed to be splash proof but is not intended for complete submergence in water. (Also note that due to the nature of the wood chosen for each unique timepiece, colors and grain pattern may vary from photos.)

The fine craftsmanship that comes in every wooden timepiece is what truly makes each watch beautifully unique. Another great aspect about these watches is that they are eco-friendly and made from sustainable materials. As such, buying and wearing a wooden watch not only serves as a fashion statement but also as a testament to the owner’s contribution towards environmental protection.

Don’t you find it a perfect gift on Mother’s Day?

Dermatologist Recommended Solutions For Repairing Sun Damaged Skin

Long years of being exposed to the harmful rays of the sun can certainly make your skin pay. When exposed for a very long time to the sun, your skin will have the tendency to become dry as well as rough. In addition to that, you will eventually notice dark spots and uneven patches. As a cherry on top, you will also get to see fine lines and wrinkles due to the loss of elasticity on your skin.

With this in mind, more and more women and men are becoming conscious about the health of their skin. If your skin has already been damaged by the sun, then there is a need for you to reverse and repair the bad effects that the sun has on your skin.

Here are some ways on how you can bring back life to your already damaged skin:

Broccoli Sprouts To The Rescue

You may have already heard of the amazing things that broccoli can do for you. When broken down or eaten, this vegetable releases glucoraphanin. When this enzyme mixes with a naturally occurring enzyme called myrosinase, a new substance is formed. This substance is the one responsible for healing the damages brought about by sun exposure. It detoxifies your skin. In addition to that, it helps protect your skin from the UV rays of the sun. Your skin’s defense against sun damage will surely be boosted since it also stimulates production of new enzymes. Aside from eating broccoli sprouts, this can also be topically applied in order to improve the overall appearance of your skin.

Take Advantage of Antioxidants

In order to boost the antioxidant effects if broccoli sprouts, it is recommended that you eat or drink substances that are rich in antioxidant such as green or red tea.

Exfoliate Properly 

One good way to bring back luster and vitality in your skin is to exfoliate it. However, this must be done right. Some dermatologists recommend chemical exfoliation as opposed to scrubbing since chemicals have the capability to dissolve the skin cells, making it more effective.

Consult With a Dermatologist

If you wish to find an effective and efficient way to reverse the effects of the sun, then you need the professional help of a dermatologist. These experts know a lot of ways to get rid of the effects of sun damage and they can tell you what the most effective step that you can take is. They can prescribe medication and vitamins or they can suggest laser procedures that would work well for you.

Once you have repaired the effects of sun damage on your skin, it is recommended that you take steps in protecting your skin from the sun. You can try talking to your dermatologist about the various ways your skin can get protected. Follow all her instructions if you wish to maintain the healthy look and appearance of your skin.
