The highly-anticipated annual fun run organized by Sun Life Financial Philippines, will soon cater to both running and cycling enthusiasts, as it evolves into a two-fold event dubbed Sunpiology Duo.

#SunpiologyDUO will come in two parts: Sun Life Cycle PH @BGC and Sun Life Resolution Run.

Sun Life Cycle PH will take place on November 18, 2017, at the Bonifacio Global City in Taguig. Sun Life will be mounting the event in partnership with Sunrise Events, Inc., which is known for its flagship projects that focus on race organization and sports tourism. The contract signing between the two companies was held recently in Shangri-La Mactan in Cebu, with Sun Life CEO and Country Head Riza Mantaring, Sun Life brand ambassador Piolo Pascual, Sunrise Founder Wilfred Uytengsu, and Sunrise General Manager Princess Galura in attendance.

“We recognize cycling’s growing popularity in the Philippines, and this is our share in helping encourage more people to get into the sport,” Sun Life Chief Marketing Officer Mylene Lopa said. “Just as it is in our fun run, Sun Life Cycle PH will cater to different ages and will offer different categories.”

Sun Life Cycle PH will have a total of seven categories: Tricycle Ride (100 meters for 2-3 year olds), Kids’ Ride (500 meters for 4-5 year olds), Family Ride (30 minutes for 6-15 year olds with adult companion), Solo Ride (30 minutes for 6-15 years old), Short Distance Ride (20km for 10 years old and above), and Long Distance Ride (40km for 10 years old and above). A charity category called Bid2Bike lets the fans of Piolo Pascual, Matteo Guidicelli, Inigo Pascual, Gerald Anderson, and other Star Magic celebrities, bid for a chance to bike alongside their idols, an exclusive photo souvenir, and have their jersey signed. For cycling enthusiasts, they can bid to ride with legend Robbie McEwen.

Meanwhile, the Sun Life Resolution Run will happen on January 20, 2018. As with the previous years, Sun Life will once again mount the event with Run Rio and will offer 3k, 5k, and 10k categories. It features an obstacle course that illustrates the steps to prevent diabetes, like watching what you eat and why exercise is important. More details will be revealed in the coming months, which includes an expanded payment facility like PayPal and DragonPay.

Jazzypay a new payment platform introduced in the market today promises to provide secure, safe, and fast, remittances for payments to schools, hospitals, clinics, and other facilities.

Safety and Security

When you pay online using either your credit card, debit card or PayPal, the security of JazzyPay ensures that your transaction is safe as the information is not saved. This site has a multiple data encryption that does the task of protecting this payment's system. This means that all the information and data is encrypted in such a way that if it is penetrated, nothing valuable can be retrieved. It is simple to understand the need for not storing important information like the 3 digit code at the back of the credit card. This makes JazzyPay a great choice as the information that you provide them is safe from cybercriminals.

Using JazzyPay

This payment platform has a website and mobile apps. It is ideal to be used by people abroad such as OFWs, and anyone that is not near the facilities that need to be paid. This is also ideal for employers that have to pay for their workers' hospital bills and even those kind-hearted generous ones that want to pay for a school bill.

The remittance of payments to a hospital, educational facility, and other establishments solves the problem of having to send the money, withdraw, and pay the bill by going there. It eliminates long lines and waiting to pay a bill. It eliminates the need of carrying a large amount of money. It is also possible that there is no one there to take care of the bill. A person might be alone, hospitalized, while their loved one is abroad. And, it is also possible that the money remitted through other channels might be misused instead of settling important bills.

JazzyPay does the task of ensuring that the bills are settled through the use of their payment platform.

Who Should Use JazzyPay?

We all have to pay bills. There are over 2 million overseas contract workers and more people from all over the world who do pay the hospital and educational bills. There are over 17,000 private schools and over a thousand private hospitals that currently do not use online payment, making it impossible to directly pay to their facilities from overseas.

JazzyPay enables people to make online payments to educational facilities, healthcare facilities, and other establishments, instantly, anytime, and from anywhere.

JazzyPay has an advocacy. Currently, it is partnering with top educational and medical institutions, to open doors to the discovery and support of the next generation of potential entrepreneurs conducting thesis and case studies in line with agricultural, medicinal and technical breakthroughs which can greatly improve lives. JazzyPay donates 5% of revenues for scholarship, thesis competition, start-up pitch and acceleration programs.

This company goes on track to aid in the startup ecosystem and is determined to help alleviate poverty by creating more job opportunities here in the Philippines so that will eventually elevate our economic status.

What are your thoughts on self-love and self-care? Self-love and self-care are popular terms today that get tossed around in normal conversation. They are important to living well. They influence who you pick for a mate, the image you project at work, and how you cope with the problems in your life.

We are all big on self-love and self-care. To some, prowling over fitness gyms in the neighborhood, raiding vegetarian restaurants at the corner of the street, looking for the most effective herbal supplement over the counter and having me-time by doing the hair, the lashes or the eyebrows; is loving and caring for oneself. For others, self-care and self-love come through indulgent skincare. Yes, you read it right. Skincare.

Though beauty is only skin deep, how your skin looks can affect your self-esteem. Having that glowing, healthy-looking, supple skin gives you the confidence boost to put out your best foot forward. But, implementing the right skin care regimen can be quite a challenge for some who are clueless as to what will work for them or will not.

“Skincare addresses two concerns: wellness and aesthetics or our sense of being attractive, that’s why we do have to take care of our skin and not take it for granted,” says Dr.Lalaine Salazar, medical director of the Svelt’i Health and Beauty Center. For the past two years, SvelT’i has become a pillar of promoting health and beauty inside out while preserving a healthy skin and body. And in those two successful years, Svelt’i has helped many individuals turn their simple skincare into a ritual of self-love and self-care.

The doctor shared she would get similar messages, either in Viber or Instagram, from patients sending their before and after photos, telling how happy they are with the huge difference and beautiful improvement on their skin. One satisfied client shared, “I remember how I was so ashamed of my face full of acne but now I gained the confidence to face every day without hiding anything and with a positive attitude.”

Aside from promoting proper skin care regimen, Svelt’i is also committed to aiding people achieve a physically fit body with the help of technology. The centre offers a variety of non-invasive treatments that promote healthy weight loss. “After 10 sessions of I-curve and several of thermogenic, I lost more than 12 lbs and 7cm off my waistline. This enables me to use the clothes that I want and have regained confidence. I now take time ensuring what I wear is nice compared to before where I have no choice but wear bulky clothes” shares one fulfilled client. Since the centre’s launch two years ago, Svelt’i has been taking care of its clients’ needs for body slimming. What’s more fulfilling for the people behind Svelt’i is that each client comes out of the centre feeling better and fresher.

“These are the words that inspire us to give the best services. We are not just promoting beauty and health, we are building the self-confidence of our patients,” shares Dr.Lalaine.

Biting into the “health” and “wellness” craze makes one true to the epigram that says, “love yourself enough, to live a healthy lifestyle.” Taking good care of our body through proper skin care, eating a balanced diet, and sufficient exercise is the key to self-love and self-care we all deserve. And in our never ending journey to finding self-love and self-care, we can count on Svelt’i in achieving overall beauty, inside and out.
Who doesn't love to watch kids play – learn new sports and activities for the very first time? Kids get so excited when they play. They are energetic and engaged as they build their muscles along with their imagination and confidence. Active play is so much more enjoyable for kids and parents alike than parking them in front of the TV or letting them play with gadgets.

Parents should encourage kids to learn new skills and enjoy the pure act of a physical play.  Through physical activity, children are given the chance to try new things, conquer their fears and build their confidence. 

Play also develops key motor and athletic skills. When children touch their toes, they learn about coordination, balance and spatial relationships. When they play with a ball, they strengthen their fine-motor skills. When they dance, they learn about rhythm and move to the beat.

Playing with others teaches kids teamwork and good sportsmanship. Children get to interact with each other in a social, non-competitive environment. It doesn't matter if they win or lose – it's about working together and trying their best.

Play also build strong bonds between parents and children. When parents or caregivers demonstrate activities to the kids, not only are kids learning crucial physical skills, they're also clocking more quality time interacting with those adults.

Playtime makes kids happy. Play is like children's work so we must allow children to play to socialize, develop, and learn new skills–while learning about themselves and others. Thru playtime, kids are able to develop a daily routine that doubles as the perfect start to a healthy, active lifestyle; all without even realizing it.

Because of these benefits that the parents and children would get from playing, Tupperware Brands Philippines' Baby Care Plus+ and Kids Plus+ launched their new line of products to support babies and kids at play. Each set of products comes with a very nice box packaging and is specially combined to match the needs of babies, kids, and moms. Each box is worth Php249.00, perfect for gifting this holiday season.

To make mommy and baby's bonding moment a lot more unforgettable, they have this Mom and Baby Bonding Set which contains Baby Care Plus+ Milk baby lotion (50ml), baby bath (50ml), and baby powder (50g).

For baby's delicate skin, Baby Care Plus offers the Newborn Starter Set which contains baby lotion (50ml), baby bath (50ml), and baby powder (50g).

To keep baby protected all day and to keep them always smelling fresh, there's the Baby Care Plus+ Happy Baby Set which includes baby lotion (50ml), baby bath (50ml), and baby powder (50g).

To help baby achieve longer hours of sleep, Baby Care Plus+ Calming offers the Baby Spa Set which contains baby lotion (50ml), baby bath (50ml), and baby powder (50g).

They also have new products from the Kids Plus+ line which help kids stay fresh and comfortable while playing with other kids such as lotion, powder, and shampoo.

With Mommy's TLC partnered with the protection from Baby Care Plus+ and Kids Plus+ , kids will surely have the best playtime of their life and parents will surely have a peace-of-mind while letting their kids explore and enjoy the big world around them through play.

For Filipinos, classical music may not have a cult-like following like that of Justin Bieber or Taylor Swift. But young and accomplished performers of classical music are showing that classical music can be appealing, too.

On September 24, winners of the National Music Competitions for Young Artists (NAMCYA), the country’s most prestigious music competition for the youth for more than 40 years, will be performing with the Philippine Philharmonic Orchestra (PPO) to give a sampling of great works of some of the most prodigious composers who ever lived.

Titled “Konsyerto: Unang Hakbang,” this concert of NAMCYA winners together with the PPO introduces the audience to snippets of longer musical works that have defined musical genres throughout history.

“We called it ‘unang hakbang,’ or first step, because we hope the audience will take that first step to appreciate the beauty of classical music. It is also the first step for some of our young musicians on the stage as professional musicians,” says NAMCYA Secretary General Renato Lucas. “It will be a night of magnificent music-making by NAMCYA’s young virtuosos.”

Lucas adds that NAMCYA has chosen five of its most recent winners to help bring their music to younger audiences.

Andrew Constantino, 1st prize & Special Prize winner for Woodwind (Clarinet) in 2015, will explore the leaps and limits of the clarinet range with Allegro from Clarinet Concerto No. 2, Op. 74, of Carl Maria von Weber (1786 - 1826). Andrew is a 20-year-old clarinetist who was taught by his grandfather to play the clarinet at age 9. He was also a scholar of the Philippine High School for the Arts (PHSA).

Aaron Rafael Aguila III, 1st prize & Best Interpretation winner in the 2016 Senior Guitar Category, will bring to life a classic guitar piece by performing Adagio from Concerto de Aranjuez by Joaquin Rodrigo (1901 - 1999). Aaron started playing classical guitar at the age of 9 under Ivar Fojas. He earned his music degree under the tutelage of Lester Demetillo and has trained with other well-known classical guitarists.

Nikki Zen Obmasca, 1st prize winner in the 2016 Solo Rondalla Category, will delight the audience with her rendition of Moto Perpetuo by Nicolo Paganini (1782-1840). This piece of Paganini was made for violin but Nikki will play it with her bandurria and infuse her own virtuosic way of playing. She started playing the bandurria when she was only 5 years old and is now a scholar of the PHSA under the tutelage of Nelson Espejo.

Mishael Romano, 1st prize winner in the 2016 Junior Strings (Violin) Category, will attempt to show the innovativeness of Felix Mendelssohn (1809 - 1847) with Allegro molto appassionato from the composer’s Violin Concerto, Op. 64. Mishael is 17-years-old and hails from Dipolog in Mindanao. He started playing the violin when he was only 5-years-old, and because he is homeschooled, he has more time to focus on his music.

Gabriel Allan Paguirigan, a two-time winner of NAMCYA, having won the grand prize in 2011 (Category B) and in 2015 (Senior Category), will display his artistry and mastery by performing a Hungarian work, Adagio religioso-Allegro vivace from Piano Concerto No. 3, Sz. 119 of Bela Bartok (1881-1945). Gabriel started his piano lessons at the age of 8 and has finished his Diploma in Creative and Performing Music Arts (DCPMA) Major in Piano, under the tutelage of Prof. Luci Magalit and Prof. Nita Abrogar-Quinto.

The country’s leading orchestra and resident company of the Cultural Center of the Philippines, the PPO will also perform Der Freischuetz Overture by Carl Maria von Weber and L’italiana in Algeri Overture by Gioacchino Rossini. The orchestra will be under the baton of Maestro Herminigildo Ranera.

“We are trying to open up new opportunities for our youth today to explore music from the great composers of the past. We hope NAMCYA’s young artists will help us with that,” says Lucas.

NAMCYA PROFILE - National Competitions for Young Artists (NAMCYA)

In recognition of the Filipinos’ innate love for music, the National Competitions for Young Artists (NAMCYA) was formally organized in 1973 under Presidential Proclamation No. 1173 and amended on November 1988 as a response to “the imperative need to develop and promote Philippine music as an art and as a handmaid of cultural development.”
PP 1173 has designated the last week of November of each year as National Music Week, with the NAMCYA Competitions as main highlights of the celebration. In 2001, President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo signed Presidential Proclamation No. 80 which affirms NAMCYA’s mission for the nation’s young artists. This Proclamation further designates the National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA) as the primary supporting agency of this endeavor.

To Discover and Develop outstanding young Filipino Musicians and Artists.
The NAMCYA has been a principal instrument in discovering major music talents from all over the country. Its project involves some one million musicians, trainers and administrations, in a long and tedious process of selecting the best among the regions annually.

NAMCYA has a three-fold program: 
1. Discovering outstanding Young Filipino musicians from every region of the country through annual competitions
2. Developing these musicians through Workshops and Training Programs
3. Enhancing and expanding the appreciation for and performance of Filipino music by way of mandated competition repertoire programs and commissioning of new works.

ANNUAL COMPETITIONS. These identify outstanding performers falling under the categories that included group and solo performances.

Group Categories: Children’s Choir, Youth Choir, Adult Choir, Rondalla Ensemble, and Traditional Music Ensemble.

Solo Categories: Solo Voice, Strings, Piano, Woodwinds, Brasses, Percussion, Solo Rondalla Instruments.

In line with decentralization, these are intended to share the music of outstanding young talents with the rest of the country. They are also intended to raise nationwide awareness of the wealth of Filipino talents as well as the depth of Philippine music in both its traditional and modern forms.

MASTER CLASSES AND WORKSHOPS. These are aimed at upgrading the skills of performers, conductors, teachers, students and parents who accompany their children on the competition and workshop sojourns witness first-hand the kind of work and dedication that are necessary for by music accomplishment. Furthermore, they are exposed to the quality of other artist competitors and are able to broaden and widen their perspectives vis-à-vis music training and education.

EXPANDING FILIPINO MUSIC. Another concern of NAMCYA is the development of a repertory of music by Filipino Composers intended for young artists, with this, the NAMCYA commissions contest pieces for the annual event.

Lately, I have been fascinated with wigs because of their unique and different styles. I just love how fashionable they are whether the curly or the straight ones, the dyed or the natural ones, the short or the long ones. That fascination led me to research more about the types and kinds of wigs that are available in the market today as well as their origin and uses, then and now.

I have also wondered how they are being made and sold to a larger market. While searching online, I have discovered a brand manufacturing premium hair extensions called Ted Hair. Ted Hair, a company from China which provides top quality hair products and services to distributors, vendors, salon and online stores owners around the world.

Ted Hair is a premier hair trading and manufacturer, meanwhile a reliable partner in growing the beauty business. They supply top quality hair products at the best price with extraordinary customer service and provide turn-key business solutions to beauty professionals and entrepreneurs. Ted Hair wholesale hair extensions are distributed to wholesalers, distributors, retailers, beauty or hair salons, online stores and hair stylists around the world. Ted Hair supply virgin Brazilian hair, Peruvian hair, Malaysian hair, Indian hair, closures, colored remy hair and more.

To sell hair extensions to beauty salons, online store owners and distributors is Ted Hair's huge business. The company provides premium quality hair products and service for professionals in the hair business. It has a warehouse in Atlanta and provides all the necessary detail for customers in the US on product ranges and sales strategies.

The company supplies wholesale virgin Brazilian hair, Peruvian hair, Malaysian hair, Indian hair, closures, colored Remy hair among other brands and sources. The hair is all classified as 100% human hair. It sells directly to the beauty suppliers who would in return be contacted by members of the public interested in buying products.

Ted Hair also offers dropship hair extensionsDropshipping is a retail fulfillment method where a store or business doesn’t have to keep the products in stock. This means, as a retailer, you don’t have to have any products on the premises – in fact, you never need stock any inventory at all. This naturally makes it a very viable option for the small, home-based online business, as well as for big stores that want to cut down on inventory holding.

In early days, this used to be called ‘Just-in-Time (JIT)’ where businesses would just order what was needed, and so cut the risks of holding large amounts of inventory which had to move. 

With the quality Ted Hair's products and the good service they bring to their client, Ted Hair reviews are always as inspiring and uplifting as ever. Delighful customers leave a very good feedback about the prodcuts and services and extend their loyalty to the company. They will not survive for 8 years in this beauty and fashion business if they are not giving back good products and services to the growing market.

A wig, short-term for periwig is a head covering made from human hair, animal hair, or synthetic fiber. Some people wear wigs to disguise baldness and it may be used as a less intrusive and less expensive alternative to medical therapies for restoring hair.

During the ancient times, wigs are being used in the Egyptian society to shield shaved, hairless heads from the sun. During those periods when men and women commonly shave or close crop their hair, wigs have a very practical use. To make a distinction, wealthy Egyptian would wear elaborate wigs and scented cones of animal fat on top of their wigs. Other ancient cultures used wigs as an everyday fashion.

In the 19th and 20th centuries, wearing of wigs as a symbol of social status was largely abandoned. Women's wigs developed in a somewhat different way. Full wigs in the 19th and early 20th century were not fashionable. They were often worn by old ladies who had lost their hair.

In this current time, a number of celebrities, including Donna Summer, Katy Perry, Lady Gaga and Diana Ross have popularized wigs. Many well-known celebrities have worn all kinds of wigs - from blonde to black, and curly to straight. Wigs today, are also worn for fun as part of fancy dress (costume wearing) when they can be of outlandish colour or made from tinsel. They are quite common at Halloween, when "rubber wigs" (solid bald cap-like hats, shaped like hair), are sold at some stores.

Wigs are also used in film, theater, and television. In most films and televisions, wigs are used extensively to alter appearance. Only a few actors starring in big-budgeted films and television series will grow their hair so that it may be cut to the appropriate hair style, and forgo using a wig.

Wigs are worn by some people on a daily or occasional basis in everyday life. This is sometimes done for reasons of convenience, since wigs can be styled ahead of time. They are also worn by individuals who are experiencing hair loss due to medical reasons (most commonly cancer patients who are undergoing chemotherapy, or those who are suffering from alopecia areata).

Some men who crossdress as women wear wigs in different styles to make their hair seem more feminine.

Nowadays, uses of wigs are so vast that the importance of wigs are being recognized. It is not just a way to cover up baldness but it is a way of being fashionable. Wigs are also used in professions especially in the field of entertainment.

This is why nowadays, a lot of sites are offering synthetic wigs for different purposes. is one of those sites offering synthetic wigs and synthetic lace front wigs. Their synthetic wigs come in different styles, color and lengths. These wigs have an ear to ear lace front which creates more natural and beautiful appearance. They feature flex combs to securely wrap the wig. They are also made from heat-resistant fiber which looks like natural hair. Each wig has a flawless design that  fits the head, mostly ideal for overall head size.

Some of my favorite from their synthetic wigs collection are the Rechoo Sugar Synthetic Wigs and the Rechoo Orchid Synthetic wigs. They both look so fabulous and would definitely improve one's looks and personality. Most of their dyed synthetic wigs are best for cosplayers and those who are fashionable and experimental when it comes to their crowning glory. Those wigs that are naturally black and straight are classics and sophisticated perfect for someone who wants to always look so prim and proper. Any wig you choose from Rechoo are sure to make you stand out from the rest.
