SM makes indoor play Kidzooona-mazing!

Gone are the days when the rainy season dampens the spirits of the kids and the kids at heart because SM Supermalls, the country’s biggest mall network, further takes family fun to the next level with the growing number of the famous Kidzooona edutainment playlands inside the SM malls.

Lovin My Kata F2

I know that Kata F2 is classified as an entry-level smartphone but it has all the features that I need for my daily use (game, video, movie, music, ebook). I didn't realize that I am already "attached" to it since Day 1.

So I like the color - "pearly" white. I believe that white is a very classy color. Clean and no-fuss, don't-mess-with-me color. The color pairs well with any clothes, bag, shoes, even style. I mean, I can wear something casual in the morning or something dressy in the evening, and the phone won't feel out-of-place.

Architect Bobby Mañosa and his daring Filipino aesthetics that shape Eskaya into a unique Bohol destination


Architect Francisco "Bobby" Mañosa is that rare breed of Filipino architect who championed the Filipino style at a time when foreign influence was the vogue and the use of indigenous materials was limited to a few brave souls.
It is therefore not surprising that Mañosa has been tapped to put to life the vision of the owners of the uppity Eskaya Beach Resort & Spa who wanted to incorporate the local culture in Bohol, where the 16-hectare gateway is located, into its aesthetics, particularly on its famous thatched villas known as "balais."

Trend Micro Warns Enterprises Against Ransomware

Ransomware is a type of malware that prevents or limits users from accessing their system and forces its victims to pay the ransom through certain online payment methods to grant access back into their systems. On the other hand, crypto-ransomware, a specific ransomware, locks up affected systems and encrypts key files found on the systems hard drive. It was determined that Cryptolocker, a variant of crypto-ransomware, was able to extort USD 10,000,000 from victims until authorities disrupted the source in May 2014.

Organic Baby Wipes for Baby's Sensitive Skin

Nowadays, parents are much more concerned with what they apply or use on their babies skin. I mean, years ago, the trend was "cutesy" more than functional and safe.

Organic Baby Wipes answers the question of is it safe for my baby's use. Errr, in this case, baby Kryztoff's use.

Here are my first impressions --

It is not heavily scented. I don't like strong scents myself so using something heavily scented on my baby is definitely a no-no.
It is not "too wet." Some wipes tend to drip, really. No kidding.
No alcohol, no paraben, no chlorine. Thumbs up for having no harmful chemicals. I mean, most moms use wipes to clean baby's sensitive parts so using something with chemicals might cause rashes and allergies.

SM Cares Facilitated Earthquake Preparedness for Senior Citizens and PWDs

With the recent earthquakes that we've been having in the country and around the globe, thinking about the next "big one" must have come across our minds. Some who also experienced the earthquake during the early 1990's can attest to the feelings of being scared after having a succession of tremors, especially those in the heavily affected regions like Baguio and Nueva Ecija. That being said, we haven't really been properly grilled about "preparedness," and this is really a big concern for the elderlys and PWDs.
