1161 Pasong Tamo St., Makati City (formerly Bosch Building, in front of Ambers)
Proceeds will be for the benefit of Project Pearls

On December 12 and 13, type lovers and lettering enthusiasts will be in for a treat! The team behind Type Kita will be holding the 3rd installment of their annual typography exhibit! The previous Type Kita exhibits offered visitors with an incredible showcase of local typographic art pieces, on-the-spot workshops by some of the country’s well-known hand-letterers and calligraphers, and for the bargain hunters, a slew of handmade crafts and printed goods from local entrepreneurs.

The 3rd Type Kita exhibit promises to be even bigger than before, with over 60 participating exhibitors and artists sharing their talent for this event-for-a-cause.
Set during the holiday season, the Type Kita Exhibit will serve as a big Christmas gathering for type enthusiasts around the metro! With live art, demos, art trade and gift giving activities, it’s the perfect holiday feast for type lovers!

With the theme “Pass on the Passion,” the event aims to foster camaraderie and to strengthen the local type community during the Christmas season by focusing on the value of collaboration and sharing! With this event, type-enthusiasts can give back to the community and share their passion to others as well. Proceeds from the event will be for the benefit of PEARLS- a non-profit organization that aims to provide unprivileged kids with Peace, Education, Aspiration, Respect, Love & Smiles.

Activities for the event are as follows:

For this leg, exhibitors are encouraged to work and collaborate with other artists to share their talent and trade skills as they develop their pieces, strengthening the idea of sharing one’s passion through art.

Art Trade Manila will lead an art-exchange activity where artists and guests can bring their works or writing tools and trade it with fellow type-enthusiasts. It’s like a massive exchange gift activity but more fun!
Some of your favorite local letterers will also be invited to paint on wooden panels as part of the live art exhibit. Glass panels will also serve as a big doodle wall canvas!
And because the venue will be bigger, Zig Philippines will also be displaying large scale art murals as part of the exhibit.

Type Kita exhibits are also the best place to build your network with fellow type-geeks! To further promote camaraderie, participants will be given name tags for their IG handles so they can easily follow each other and keep connected even after the event!
One portion of the event will allow guests to write Christmas cards, design covers of blank notebooks and leave behind hand-lettered pieces as part of gift kits for the kids of PROJECT PEARLS.
Pass on the passion for type with free demos such as lettering, calligraphy, watercolor lettering and many more! There will also be a scheduled film showing, some live art & for the hoarders, there will also be pop-up shops for tools and type merchandise.

To keep the Christmas spirit alive, they will be holding a simple get-together/Christmas potluck to celebrate the community this holiday season. You may bring food and drinks too if you want to join in the feast!

Encouraged by the success of Up&Up Skin Lifting Serum by Yuyu Healthcare Inc., Riantique Global Inc. CEO Ria Castrillo brings yet another effective beauty treatment to the Philippines: Up&Up Cream.

According to Castrillo, “the demand for an effective beauty treatment that specifically to keep the wrinkles from showing is relatively high.”
She said Up&Up Cream, adds to Filipinas’ options for a non-surgical skincare solution “that is both safe and easy on the pocket. Up&Up Cream is one product that you can trust to enhance beauty and restore youthful glow in an instant without the need for surgery.”
“Up&Up Cream has been clinically proven safe to use on all skin types by Sae Myung Herbal Biology Industrial Clinic in Korea,” Castrillo said. “This high-potency skin-firming concentrate quickly penetrates the skin’s surface to improve its elasticity. It visibly lifts skin, smoothes its surface, fills up wrinkles, reduces pore size and regenerates skin collagen and elastin. After application, results become visible in seconds. With continued use, skin retains its youthful glow.”
“Some women peak early, while others blossom later,” Castrillo noted. “All in all, we should be on a journey of continued growth and exploration. We have in control of our lives at 40. Up&Up is there to keep us confident where most of us are at the peak of attaining our greatest achievements in most areas of our lives, and where we can definitely enjoy the fruits of our labor.”
Up&Up Cream “also contains arbutin and other healthy botanicals known to aid skin rejuvenation like adenosine, green tea extract, ade aluminum overrijissel sumip, trehalos, dynalift, chamomile extract, hyaluronic acid and aloe vera extract,” Castrillo said. “It is naturally made, to ensure that it is free from parabens, mineral oils, silicon, triethanolamine and artificial coloring.”
While several beauty products on the market do offer collagen and elastin among their ingredients, Up&Up Cream “is new and unique,” Castrillo said. “I haven't seen any in the market which instantly improves your skin at watching with your own eyes. It has a unique packaging, in the shape of a syringe without the needle.” Model Marina Benipayo has tried Up&Up Cream and said in an interview that it “definitely felt like Up&UP Cream was starting to treat my face to an avalanche of vitamins to improve it.”
“My skin is definitely not the same as it was 20, 10 and five years ago,” Benipayo added. “But I've always believed that proper diet, the right kind of exercise, lifestyle and outlook in life are big contributors to feeling and looking young. At 47, I almost never get too exposed to the sun, I sleep and rest as much as I can and reserve it for only the most important things like family and work. I don't take in alcohol and stay away from negative stresses. I've also been more picky with the products I use on my face.”
“During the second week, I noticed my face was clearer and younger-looking,” Benipayo said. “Now that I've been using Up&Up for a month straight, I noticed my skin is healthier and in much better condition.” Based on her experience with the product, Benipayo said: “I think Up&Up Cream will give its competitors a run for their money. It’s an effective product, very suitable for Asian skin, and has absolutely no downtime at all. I can use it any time of the day—in the morning, evening, before I put on makeup. It’s an instant vitamin treatment for the face.”
“I always knew that maintaining a level of beauty and confidence entails a lot of work and love for self,” she said. “Now that I have these Up&Up boosters, I know that my skincare regimen will be easier to maintain. I do not have to use other products like eye creams, skin-lifting serums and moisturizers: Up&Up can replace all of them now.”
Benipayo dispenses some sage advice, too. “Accept your age and take the best care of yourself that you can by following the basic needs of the skin and body: Proper skincare, diet and exercise.”


Studies have shown that up to 70 percent of people spend their working hours sitting more than six hours per day, unknowingly putting themselves at risk for developing chronic non-communicable diseases such as heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and hypertension. 

But lack of physical activity is not only occurring in the working population. According to Dr. Paul Quilino, Medical Affairs manager at Healthway Medical and wellness advocate, healthy sports and recreational activities are becoming less of the norm in our society regardless of gender and age.
It is widely accepted that physical activity plays a critical role in keeping one’s health and wellness in prime condition. In fact, Quilino stressed that an active lifestyle “promotes proper growth and development of the bones and muscles, helps burn stored energy, keeps cardiovascular system in tiptop condition, and helps improve overall physical endurance and agility.”

“This makes the shift to a more active lifestyle all the more important,” Quilino said. “Exercise and physical activity are probably two of the most cost-effective and significant factors that one can engage in, to help lessen the risk of developing chronic diseases. With this, Filipinos, regardless of their age, should keep a close watch on their sleep, diet, and exercise to meet in order to stay healthy.”

To ensure that Filipinos achieve the most desirable lifestyle, Healthway Medical—the most trusted and preferred mall-based clinics in the Philippines—promotes its Sleep, Eat Right, Exercise, and De-stress (S.E.E.D.) program to underpin the importance of an active and preventive healthcare especially to the working group.
According to Carmie de Leon, vice president for sales and marketing of Healthway Medical, exercise is always lauded as an effective tool in preventing all kinds of diseases. However, being active is not the sole factor that plays part in curbing a sedentary lifestyle.
De Leon said, “People who work eight hours or more daily have the responsibility take care of themselves in any way possible. Just like Dr. Quilino noted, taking the initiative to walk at least 20 minutes a couple of times within the week may help your body adapt to different physical activities. Eventually, you can slowly progress to brisk walking, then jogging, then running in greater lengths and frequency.”

When Filipinos adopt this routine, they may challenge themselves to add distance or intensify the workout until they finally get rid of such sedentary lifestyles, Quilino added.
Aside from moving a step closer to health and wellness, he said “the main goal in any ideal diet is to maximize intake of essential nutrients which are often found in fruits, vegetables and whole grains, and lessen intake of those which are known to increase our risk for chronic non-communicable disease.”

“Practically, the only way one will be able to follow such recommendations is by adapting and tailor-fitting these in their own socio-cultural preferences, as well as medical and physical needs,” Quilino added.

To further nurture one’s physicality, Quilino highlighted the importance of quality sleep in ensuring work productivity.

“In all ages, sleep induces secretion of certain chemicals in the brain, which in turn signals to the whole body to regenerate. And it’s not just the length of sleep we get butthe quality of sleep as well,” Quilino said.

Quilino added, “Some studies point to the benefits of early sleep (within the first 4 hours of sleep), deep sleep on the 5th to 7th hour and near waking. What we want to point out here is that to function normally awake, we also have to care about the amount and quality of sleep we get.”

Because of today’s generation’s affinity to digital gadgets, Quilino emphasized that these modern-day technologies play a greater role in affecting people in decreasing their time and interest in more physical recreational activities. Digital gadgets effectively decrease physical activity and also play a role in disrupting one’s sleep-awake cycle, reducing sleeping time, hence, a good way to achieve quality sleep is to “keep yourself from using your phone before you sleep.”

“Most mobile games aim to instantly gratify their users, and in effect, feed (and increase) their appetite to even play more,” Quilino said. “The unwanted contrast against playing outdoors becomes more magnified and feeds into the vicious cycle. Light stimulation (not necessarily the radiation) during the sleep phase of our natural sleep-wake cycle signals the brain to stay alert, and therefore, stay awake. With this, Filipinos should opt to minimize their gadget use especially when they’re hitting the bunk.”

De Leon, on the other hand, said that while sleeping, eating right, and exercising are important pillars in achieving wellness not only in terms of mental health but also physical and social well-being, it is also crucial to take a break once in a while to curb work-related stress.

“Work-related stress is the body’s common response when people are confronted with work demands that do not match their knowledge and abilities,” De Leon said. “Since it challenges their ability to cope, 75 percent of adults experience moderate to high levels of stress, which is quite alarming.”
She added, “People who work hard to give their families a more comfortable life also need to have that comfort for themselves. With this, they need to take a break from their daily routines and do something that de-stresses them,” De Leon said.

Nowadays, there are many alarming inhumane acts everywhere. Sometimes we don't know how will we protect our own family from the bad people especially our children.

The estimates are that in most western countries, 1 in 5 kids will be sexually assaulted at some level before they are 18 years old. We have also been horrified by the recent media headlines involving high profile people and institutions. Sadly 90% of child sexual assault cases actually occurs when the offender has a close relationship to the child (even other children). However, we can significantly change these statistic and keep our kids safe...

As a parent, I want my child to be protected and well equipped with knowledge in protecting his/herself from harm. I highly recommend a book that's worth buying.

My Underpants RULE! (hardback and softback book) that is a fun, easy, empowering way to teach kids how to protect their private parts. It uses a catchy, repetitive rhyme - The Underpants RULE! coupled with bright, colourful illustrations, child friendly humour and a superhero theme to teach what is appropriate and inappropriate behaviour in relation to one's private parts and what to do if something should happen. This book is 'loved' by kids and is 'easy' for parents/carers and educators. Best suits 3 to 8 year olds.

My Underpants RULE! is on the NSPCC recommended reading list and they have also selected it to be the cornerstone of a behavioural study in Northern Ireland involving 40 schools in 2016. It has been recommended by leading child psychologists, survivors,  and a portion of each sale goes to Barnardos.

Teaching kids to Protect themselves can be CHILD'S PLAY...

Filipinos are 3rd among the heaviest drinkers in the world according to a report by Euromonitor. Alcohol has been part of the Filipino culture like Fiesta, Thanksgiving, family gatherings and other occasions. As Pinoys may think that being top as heaviest drinkers is to be proud of, doctors may disagree on the other hand because excessive alcohol consumption may lead to liver disease. With the right food supplement like LiverMarin, we can protect our livers.

ATC Healthcare International Corp. seek out the best Silymarin to extract and fit into one convenient capsule of LiverMarin. It's a dietary supplement that contains 250mg of Silymarin or Milk Thistle and 100mg of Sodium Ascorbate. Milk Thistle is being known as a natural treatment to liver damage. It has unique "flavanoids" complex that has two main components Silydianin and Silychristin that forms Silymarin found in LiverMarin capsules. It has known to have beneficial properties that can protect liver by acting as an antioxidant, promoting the growth of new liver cells while preventing liver damage. It may also help prevent cirrhosis, or scarring of the liver, which is an irreversible damage that causes you to have a weakened immune system.

In addition to the above-mentioned benefits, regular intake of LiverMarin also has non-liver benefits. It helps lower the cholesterol level, digesting fat that aids in the treatment of fatty livers, preventing and treating hepatitis A and B, managing SGPT and SGOT levels and in managing insulin overproduction. 

Treat your liver right by taking 1 capsule of LiverMarin 3 times a day before meals or as prescribed by physician. LiverMarin is available at Mercury Drug and other leading drugstores nationwide at only SRP P9.00 a capsule. It's an affordable way to protect your liver against alcohol and toxins.

As we age, we likely gain weight and deteriorate our body shape. Physically, when we age, our metabolism slows down. Our body change in composition as our habits changes as well. We become busier with various aspects in life - work, family and friends. How can we fit in time to work on ourselves? Is that a valid excuse? No. You can’t let your health go into disarray just because you can’t properly manage your schedule. Living, just like any activity, has to be managed. Health must be one of our top priorities despite of our hectic schedules. Prioritization must be embedded in making life choices. Reduce time spent on less important activities. After all, what could be more important than staying healthy to gain more time living? 

Start practicing addition by subtraction with Reducin. Reducin is made from Orlistat, a gastric and pancreatic lipase inhibitor for the aid of obesity.

It is to be taken 3 times a day before every meal, or as prescribed by your physician. *Note that if a meal is missed or contains no fat, the dose should be omitted.
Statistics shows that diabetes, the 8th leading cause of death in the Philippines, is painful to endure in so many ways. The physical and psychological agonies that diabetic patients have to bear are simply overwhelming. Lifetime medications, kidney dialysis that requires at least three sessions per week, regular checkups and insulin injections are just some of the mandatory requirements to manage diabetes. Aside from the ever-present worry of keeping healthy, financial considerations are also astronomical. Diabetes, being one of the diseases that has no known cure yet, its is certainly not a disease to take on lightly.

At least P3,000 is needed for a single session of dialysis which must be sustained thrice a week, about P800 for a shot of insulin, and top up other maintenance drugs needed. That costs about at least P9,000 per week—all for the management of diabetes, and not for cure. Indeed, diabetes is a costly disease. 

What could be the best ways to avoid diabetes given all these expenses? Through proper diet, avoiding cigarette smoking and drinking alcohol beverages and exercise we can control or might as well prevent diabetes. All these healthy measures may lead you to a diabetes-free life. Another thing to help keep your diabetes at bay? BitterGO – a combination of different vegetable extracted sought out by ATC Healthcare International Corp. and fit into one convenient capsule. To boost more of your resistance against diabetes and a food supplement that regulates blood sugar - BitterGO. 

BitterGO contains four healthy ingredients that are beneficial in managing blood sugar level in the body. One of its contents is ampalaya, known worldwide for its anti-diabetic properties and is recognized by the Department of Health (DOH) as a medicinal herb. Other components of BitterGO are medicinal herbs like banaba, luyang dilaw and garlic, which is present only in BitterGO. 

Regular intake of BitterGO may help in lowering blood sugar levels, managing frequent urination, handling excessive sweating, reducing blurred vision and tingling sensation in the extremities, stimulating the pancreas, spleen and liver to intensify absorption of food in the gastrointestinal tract, purifying blood and in maintaining good and clear skin.

Take BitterGO daily and stay better, not bitter! BitterGO is available at Mercury Drug and other leading drugstores nationwide for only SRP P7.50 per capsule#ATChealthcare
