Carry Me to Boracay

June 25, 2019


While there are 7,102 islands in the Philippines, it may be difficult to find reasons to visit Boracay again. Yet with the recent rehabilitation efforts made, it is worth a try. So to get the maximum benefit of my money and other resources, I thought of bringing my carry me bike sd.

Packing my carry me bike sd as a check in laguage is no hassle. With the help of cling wrap, I simply surround it with re-used styropore and wrapped it with a re-cycled cardboard. I however made the rolling wheels protuding for easy transport while not yet in-use. For safety reason however, I deflated the wheels so it won’t burst like the released ballons to the sky.

Rolling carry me bike is an eye catcher. Hidden inside a recycled cardboard tightened by a clingwrap with a protuding rolling wheels makes heads turn at the mystery of the package…

Why Contest System of Awarding May not be a Good Culminating Activity for Volunteer Organization

May 31, 2018

Culminating event is a closing of a term to make way for a new one. Some celebrate it with awards and recognition to acknowledge the valuable contributions of individual or group for a period of time. Giving awards and recognitions may not be mandatory but had it been decided to do so it must be done with a lot of care. It is important to note that culminating a term will give the final and long lasting impression of your leadership.

For a volunteer/community service organization, members are not paid and may even be spending for every projects and events being organized. All of them contribute their time, money, effort and other resources to help their community. Hence a culminating activity must leave in them a sense of joy. It is in this line that a “contest system” of awarding may not be a good idea in celebrating the end of the term. Why?

1) It is a win-lose situation. A volunteer who did not win an award may go home feeling a loser whereas she/he as a volunteer is a hero of her/his community. It does not give a good emotional/psychological impact on the volunteer.

2) To win a “contest” dilutes the noble purpose of volunteer: to give without expecting in return. Contest is a promise reward.

3) Culminating activity is best celebrated with a happy ending especially for the year’s acheivement in volunteer work. In the contest system, some who did not get the prize comes home feeling they failed their group/team or community.


4) The “contest” system is very close to carrot and stick leadership. “The winners take it all the loser standing small.”

Had award and recognition been decided to culminate a term, what then is a more recommended system in volunteer groups? The “acheivement system” a win-win aystem where all are recognized no matter how small the contribution maybe. Remember, they are volunteers, they did things for free and may even poured out their money, valuable time, precious effort and other resources. They deserve to be acknowledged even with just a printed certificate. The schools have come up with the most creative and innovative way to recognize even the a low performing student, hence teachers can be sought for their valuable help.

Again, there are no losers in voluntary work, make them go home smiling. 😊

Hindi sulit ang pagmamadali.
Buhay ang nadadalí
Kahit ikaw ang nasa tama
Pare-parehong mapapasamä

Ngunit sa kalye walang sigurado
Kaya’t dapat ay protektado
Di lang ang sasakyan mo
Mas kailangan ng buhay mo

Maghanda sa anomang sakuna
#PruLifeUK ay subok na
Tawagan na ang inyong ahente
Bago pa ikaw ay ma-aksidente

Small Steps to CSR

February 16, 2017

NovaMars Marketing, authorized distributor of Professional Skin Care Formula by Dr. Alvin (PSCF) in Quezon Province has practice anew it’s sense of Corporate Socail Responsibility. Last February 9, 2017 ,  NovaMars  Marketing has open opportunity to two PWD’S to be part of PSCF family .


Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It's not. -Dr. Seuss

The following Question and answer brings a clearer idea of what CSR is all about.

What is CSR?

Lexicon defines Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) as “is a business approach that contributes to sustainable development by delivering economic, social and environmental benefits for all stakeholders.”

The definition given by Investopedia is “a corporation’s  initiatives to assess and take responsibility for the company’s effects on environmental and social wellbeing. The term generally applies to efforts that go beyond what may be required by regulators or environmental protection groups.”

In Business Dictionary , it is ” A company’s sense of responsibility towards the community and environment (both ecological and social) in which it operates. Companies express this citizenship (1) through their waste and pollution reduction processes, (2) by contributing educational and social programs, and (3) by earning adequate returns on the employed resources. See also corporate citizenship.”

The World Business Council for Sustainable Development sa publication netong  Making Good Business Sense by Lord Holme and Richard Watts wrote:
“Corporate Social Responsibility is the continuing commitment by business to contribute to economic development while improving the quality of life of the workforce and their families as well as of the community and society at large.”

After having read all these definition we can surmise that CSR is an activity of a company or business organization’s that go beyond mere profit but take responsibility of welfare of it’s worker, community and environment in which it is existing. It is like being a good neighbor to where it is standing, hence CSR is also referred to as Corporate Citizenship.

How can CSR be practiced ?

According to intelligentHQ there are three areas where CSR can be implemented: (1) Environmental  (2) Philanthropic – (3) Ethical

For a small entrepreneur like NovaMars Marketing for example,  it chose to express it in area of Philanthropy. NovaMars to celebrate Valentine’s with a big heart has granted small business opportunity to two Persons With Disability.   Since, it is only starting, NovaMars Marketing has yet 2 beneficiaries :

1) Jhuyjhuy Escalora,  a lady on a wheelchair has been granted retailership for Professional Skin Care Formula by Dr. Alvin.



Jhuyjhuy was discovered to have a lump at one part of spinal chord when she was around 10 years old. This eventually made her incapable of walking and twisted her fingers.  But despite her disability she managed to learn how to cook, clean and do her own laundry.  Yet, like many PWD, Jhuyjhuy also wished to be able to support herself financially.  It is for this reason that NovaMars Marketing made her a retailer for Professional Skin Care Formula by Dr. Alvin, believing in the inspired words of
Robert M. Hensel:


2) George Belarmino,  is also granted an delivery service opportunity within sa Tiaong, Quezon. 


George's Delivery Service

Sir George Belarmino was born with disability to walk nor sit uprightly. But such is not an obstacle for him to work in order to provide for his family. He thought of a way to run the engine of tricycle through his hands alone.  Through that tricycle he was able to make a living by delivering vegetables and send students to and from school. It is in his strength and industry that inspired sa NovaMars Marketing to give a chance to increase his earning. Hence last Feb 13,2017 as a prelude to Valentine’s Day George was given the authority to deliver PSCF by Dr. Alvin to clients of NovaMars Marketing. When time comes that many will patronize him, he will be a reseller soon.


To this date the company is still looking for PWD that can be a retailer in Tayabas, Lucban, Mauban,  Real, General Nakar,  Panungkulan, Patnanugan, Polillo, Jomalig at Burdeos.   Sonia you know someone the area that was mentioned and you would like to help, please advise him/her to text :

In this way you can also implement CSR in your own little way creating value with others… an advice given in The Feast Bay Area in one of their Talk Series during A Talk Series on Valentine’s Day:


The Skin Vitamin

February 2, 2017

What is an effective skin care maintainance that is safe to apply on skin around the eyes and can be used by pregnant women?

Vitamin C Serum ng Professional Skin Care Formula by Dr. Alvin . It is prepared with concentrated Vitamin that works as anti-oxidant thereby preventing skin damage.


Reminders: Whenever applying on skin around the eyes make sure that you eyes are closed. Yet, if however, it accidentally touches the eyes, immediately wash with clean tap water.

What is an anti-oxidant?

An anti-oxidant helps prevent formation of free radicals or charged oxygen which burns collagen of the skin.

What is Collagen?

A collagen is an elastic protein in the skin that binds the cells and tissue together thereby maintaing the plumpness of skin. The continues replacement of collagen prevents early signs of aging such as wrinkles.

What benefits do our skin gets from Vitamin C serum?

Exposure to heat/sun/uv rays can destroy or burn the collagen in our skin. Like frying a bacon this can lead to wrinkles. As we age however, collagen production and replacement slows down and consequently, wrinkles starts showing up on our skin. When Vitamin C serum is applied to the skin, the production of collagen is promoted . Apart from this, like the flesh of an apple that is prevented from browning when soaked in cutrus juice, Vitamin C prevents or lighten age spots and even out skin tone. If used regularly for a long time, Vitamin C lightens the skin.

What is the edge of using Vitamin C serum campared to applying natural fruit on skin?

Vitamin C serum is prepared with higher concentration of vitamin C compared to what our skin gets from natural fruits. Moreover, it is a stay on or all-night on beauty skin treatment without the risk of attracting insects.

What is the advantage of Vitamin C Serum over other skin care products?

Vitamin C is natural is a natural health need to boost immunity. When applied to the skin it can easily penetrate deeply into the skin tissue. Apart from that, Vitamin C Serum does leave a greasy or sticky feeling on skin, rather it makes the skin velvety smooth to touch and attractively kissable.

REMEMBER: Always do a patch test before trying on a new skin care products o.
