Valentine’s Day in the Philippines, women usually get flowers or chocolate from their husbands, boyfriends, secret admirers, even fathers.
But in countries like Japan and South Korea, it is the women who give chocolate gifts to the boys.
A month later, on March 14th, the men are expected to return the favor by giving gifts to the ladies—anything from sweets to jewelry or lingerie. This event is known as White Day.
So for those who may have forgotten to give chocolates to their loved ones last Valentine’s Day, you can still make up for it on White Day—with Royce’ limited edition chocolates available at Royce’ shops in Power Plant Mall, Greenbelt 5, Trinoma, Eastwood Mall, The Podium, and The 30th.
Come to think of it, I’m one of them. I can still surprise my boys with Valentine chocolate on March 14.

When I get together with my friends, some of our more common topics—aside from our kids and shopping—are eating, dieting, working out, back pain, hip pain, failing eyesight, and self-improvement.
I’m of the belief that if you have the opportunity to improve yourself, you should take it. I myself am no stranger to cosmetic procedures. I am not normally afraid of needles, but I know that many people are.
Luckily there are now injectable wrinkle fillers that soften lines and wrinkles. Results can last for four months or more.
Fillers have plumping and smoothing effects so that skin can have a youthful appearance. Some people are hesitant to use fillers because these substances need to be injected into your face.
Thankfully, Vizcarra Pharmaceuticals Inc. has brought in the perfect solution for this concern.
“We are very proud to be the distributor of Fillerina in the Philippines. Fillerina is a groundbreaking antiaging treatment,” said Vicky Vizcarra Amalingan Sales, chairman of Vizcarra Pharmaceutical Inc.
At Fillerina’s core are six hyaluronic acids with varying molecular weights. These different weights of hyaluronic acids penetrate the different layers of the skin. Product testing volunteers had a 95% positive response for the product.
Fillerina is a 14-day treatment pack that contains 14 doses of filler gel and 14 doses of nourishing film with two patented blunt-edge applicators. The applicators look like syringes but they’re not. These packs cost Php7,400 to Php9,500, depending on the dose.
There are also day and night creams and a lip and eye contour cream for a more comprehensive treatment. You use these after the 14 days.
Fillerina promises toned, supple skin with diminished lines and visible lifts around the cheekbone area in 14 days. You see a significant difference in just seven days of using the treatment pack.
There are three different Fillerina grades for different skin conditions, with Level 1 being the mildest and Level 3 for more mature skin.
Fillerina 14-day treatment and Fillerina Everyday Cream, Lip and Eye Contour Cream are made by Swiss company Labo Cosprophar and exclusively distributed by Vizcarra Pharmaceutical Inc.
Fillerina also recently introduced Lip Plump for fuller and smoother lips.

People now are so lucky, they can keep in touch with loved ones no matter where, for free with just a smart phone and an app like Viber.
The first time I made a Viber phone call was a couple of years ago when I was in Tokyo and a friend’s mother died. We spent more than 30 minutes talking for free.
When I was studying in New York in the ’90s, I can’t tell you how much I spent on my phone bill…
Fast forward to 2017. Viber freely connects users around the world with the people that matter to them most. With more than 800 million unique users on the platform, Viber allows people to connect through individual messaging, group chats, or even video calls.
And now there’s Secret Messaging.
The new feature allows you to share images and videos that disappear after viewing. I leave it up to you to think about how to use it.
As for me, I quite enjoy sharing gossipy photos with my friends. *wink*
To get started with Secret Messages, simply take a picture or video using the Viber camera or choose one from your gallery, set a time limit, and then send.
Once the media is opened by your recipient, the Secret Message will be visible for the time set, then it will disappear without a trace.
