DOMEX Fiesta


Community welcomes arrival of clean toilets in “Fiesta” video

It’s a scene typically played out during fiestas: People rushing to the streets, drawn to the sound of a marching band. Everyone is smiling, eager to see the “star” of the celebration. But instead of showing the face of a movie celebrity, a beauty queen or a politician, the video reveals an unlikely, yet welcome sight—a new, clean toilet facility.

Aptly titled “Fiesta”, the Domex video, produced by Unilever Philippines, is available on Youtube and shows how underprivileged Filipinos welcome the “arrival” of clean toilet facilities in their communities. “The video aims to make people realize the value of a toilet which most of us, unfortunately, take for granted,” said Dennis Chua, Domex Brand Manager.

The “Fiesta” video contributes to the efforts of Domex’s One Million Clean Toilets Movement. Each unique view translates into a pledge for the advocacy campaign which collects pledges from households to conscientiously maintain their own hygienic bathrooms. For every pledge received, Domex will donate P5 to UNICEF’s sanitation program, towards improving access to basic sanitation in deprived areas around the world, including the Philippines.

“By watching the ‘Fiesta’ video and asking our friends to watch it, we are not only raising awareness for toilet appreciation and sanitation, more importantly, we are helping less privileged communities gain access to clean toilet facilities,” said Benjie Yap, Unilever Foods and Home Care Vice President.

Clean toilets, germ-free communities
All over the country, people are welcoming the construction of new toilet facilities and the repair of dilapidated ones, since becoming aware of its role in disease prevention, especially among children.

According to the Department of Health, of the estimated 3,420 diarrhea-related deaths among Filipino children under 5 every year, around 2,000 could have been prevented by access to safe water, improved toilet sanitation and personal hygiene.

“This video should serve as a wake-up call for most of us. The little things we take for granted, like having a clean toilet, could mean the world to others and could definitely help save lives,” Chua said.

Tweak Week

Yesterday I attended two blogging events. One is the celebration of the Basti's Brew and the other is the pre-relaunching of the 'New' Bulgogi Brothers -- which I'll be blogging about this coming week. I wore a laid back outfit, nothing fancy just in for pure comfort. This was taken inside the Bulgogi Brother in SM Lanang.
Top: Mags | Shorts: Levis | Bag: XOXO | Watch: G-shock | Sneakers: SM department


I made a fine adjustment since I have been transferred at the Emergency Room particularly in the Trauma department. It wasn't easy and it will never be easy but I'm loving the challenge so far. I finally get the adrenaline rush and the "let's save lives" that I've been looking for years (so deep, I know hahaha).

It could be fun but it could also get super stressing for my body, hence the haggard looking face. I'm not good with applying make-up, so please just bear with it haaaaaay. Anyway I'm planning to straighten my hair hopefully by next week before my family and I head to Saranggani (I'm so excited with the paragliding I just hope the weather won't get in our way *crossing my fingers). And also I've already set an appointment to Precioso Spa for a body scrub with bleach and whole body massage by the end of the month. I'll try to make an update here on how I will handle the stress and what are my ways to de-stress.

If you've been a reader of my blog you'd know that I'm known for wearing heels, and just recently I lost it (my mojo in strutting my thing--heels). It's maybe because my body especially my feet need all the rest I could get and by not wearing heels would probably be the best I could possible give to my myself---well at least for now :)

About the fine adjustment that I've stated earlier, there will be a change with my ways in blogging. I've somehow moved forward and into lifestyle blogging. Say for example the mix of travels, leisure, food and laid back outfit posts, all of it just show the revamping of my life.

Welcome to my life and I hope I could still be apart of your lives even just for a minute or two.
xoxo

Saging Repablik

Have you heard of Saging Repablik? Well for my Dabawenyo readers I'll bet yes and many of you might have gone there a couple or more, but don't fret 'cause this is more than the #CreateYourOwnBananaCue post. And to those who are outside Davao and are planning to visit the city might as well read this post, you might want to know what's the latest restaurant and dish that the dabawenyos are going crazy and bragging about.
Let me do the honors to introduce to you once again the Saging Repablik and the additions to their menu.
Saging Repablik has been 'the talk of the town' since the day it opened. With its great concept, both on the interior aspect --bringing in the unconventional rustic industrial design (high ceiling and large space, such a cool place to dine) and the distinct variety of food, it's not surprising why we love to dine there. 
Since Saging Repablik opened its door, several new dishes were introduce. They held a bloggers night were we had the first dibs to the new menu.
 Beer Batter Fish and Banana Chips.
So this is first that I tried, and it was downright impressive, in fact this goes to my numero uno. Mind you I'm not fond of eating fish dishes but this is exceptional. From the texture to the flavor it's extremely palatable.
 Chicken Cordon Bleu
 Sisag (Sisig and Saging)
Humbanana Cue (Humba and Banana Cue)
 Orange Walnut Chicken
 Afrinana (Afritada and Banana)
 Chickenanapops
Pochero Con Saba

Those are just some of the new dishes released recently and it was all in all impressive. And knowing the creativity of the people behind SR, I wouldn't be surprised to see new dishes in no time. They're definitely on top of their game.

Of course after a delectable meal is a delightful dessert galore. So don't you dare close the window just yet haha.
 Banana Cue Cream Pie
 Toronutella
 Linginging
 Frosted Double Gatchocolatto
 Or if you want to feel like a chef (whatever you call that) even for a while, create your own banana cue. Bring out that artistic side of you.
step 1. Choose your banana. Step 2. Choose dip or spreed. Step 3. Choose 3 toppings. Step 4. See your creations. 
Don't forget to take a photo of it and show it to the world #BananaRepablik #createyourownbananacue ;)
Farrah, Rien, and Moi. After a long long time, finally blogger beshies reunited. Missing the good old days of fashion blogging.
On the left lower corner is the merchandise store. All their stuff were pretty cool and what I loved most is their statement shirts, which I'll be wearing one of these days here on my blog :)
They have a great selection from t-shirts, to sweaters and to tank tops.
More of saging repablik merchandise.
Charm bracelets. I own one :) get yours too.
Whether it's a celebration or sort of catching up with friends, Saging Repablik is the place to be.
