The care we got from Annual Physical Exam of Philcare

Artworks by Ron Axel Magdael.
PREVENTION  is the best cure, a saying that is truly 100% true in taking care of our body, but there is a greater than prevention when you live a healthy life, a healthy way of life in order to avoid those things we prevent to happen.

In an environment like now a days, a sound mind and healthy heart is really a necessity, and with the busy work days we are facing in a daily routine, most of us see only our doctors whenever we feel something, whenever we think that there is a need to consult, and to worst, we see them only when we can’t afford the trail of medications.

Having an annual physical exam is a great relief,many companies especially here in Metro Manila require this kind of system in order to ensure productivity of its employees, and for the employees to realize the need of medical exams to predict what to happen and to live healthy of course.

But most of us neglect what are those need to be check annually, some just regularly do it since it is required, and yes we complain of long que that consume so much time.  But let me tell you those procedures that we usually brush aside and make alibi not to do it.

The Urine test or urinalysis procedures is a way of measuring our sugar intake, it also show Ketones that determine the Uric acid we have in our body, it could also trace if we have Urinary tract infection or UTI, and it could lead signs if we have HIV or some genital diseases.  The fecalysis test is determining our wellness not only for our stomach, through it they can know if we have Amoebiasis, a kind of infection in our intestines, it could also show signs of Colon cancer, and a lot more.

Through Blood count, the balancing of red and white blood cells can be check, if there is an infection in your blood,  and platelet count if you are unaware you have Malaria or Dengue, and a lot of diagnosis depends on your medical history.

X-Ray is one of the fastest system to undergo in most of the required in the Physical exam checklist, but this Laboratory procedures can help you check if you have tuberculosis, the X-ray of the chest can show if you have a collapse lungs, a scoliosis, or enlargement of heart.

Those mention procedure is covered by the new PhilCare Smart Check-Up, an annual physical examination package usually offered in many companies in Manila, this card needs you to register first in mobile, and once receive the activation reply message you can now go ahead and make an appointment to the nearest PhilCare accredited clinics near you, and to avoid the hassle of waiting that long. The card also offer 5% discounts on all laboratory procedures arising from the Physical examination, and 10% on all ultrasound procedures.

And the good news , you don’t have to go back to the said clinic for the results, you can view that through the PhilcareGo! Apps that can download through your android mobile phones or tablets. In the said apps, you can be a member for free and get wellness invites from myPhilcare, no age requirement for enrollment.

The best of summer in Camaya Coast.

Going to the beach, exploring the sand, sun and the sea is the best thing to do every time summer comes. But what if, if you live near the beach and you have unlimited membership to the resort, and you have the best view of mountains and the sea, definitely it will be a summer all year long.

Camaya Coast  in Mariveles, Bataan is the newest haven for beach bummer like me, it’s a  350 hectares of resort and leisure started in 2007 develop by Earth & Shore Leisure Communities Corporation, it also includes the upper portion that is being constructed now as subdivision for residential and condo buildings.
The resort is called Camaya Sands, where fine white sands is the best of Bataan, its open to public for a day tour, and for overnight stay there is an existing Hotel with 35 rooms as of now, they also accepts events for many occasions for their Banquet hall. The Infinity pool at the elevated portion is a good location in viewing the bay.
But Camaya is not just a resort, it is design to be a commercial and residential communities anchored on eco-tourism leisure concept, yes they are selling lots and condos on top of the mountain where in you will have the great view of the West Philippine Sea, and for P20, 000 you will get lifetime membership to the resort.

According to Christopher Joshua Espelita, Sales Manager of Camaya Sands, there are a lot of things to happen in the coming years in Camaya Sands, like the plan construction of international standard Golf course, and a lot of bar and restaurant in the area. He disclose to us as of this writing the price range of the lots they offer, lowest they can offer is P8, 500 per square meter and can goes up to P9, 100 per square meter depends on the location.
We got a chance to tour Camaya for a day thru the assistance of their very generous agent Gerlie Dolfo, we experience how fulfilling life can be in seeing the breathtaking view of the sea from the mountain top.  We were able to enjoy many amenities and activities that Camaya can offer such as kayaking and a visit to their hidden waterfalls.
We are inform as well that many local celebrities have already purchase lot in Camaya, among them are Kris Aquino, Marian Rivera and Pokwang.   You can easily get to Mariveles by land thru Olongapo-Gapan Road, thru Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway(SCTEX), or ride their private ferry at Ferry Terminal back of Folk Arts Theater in Roxas Blvd.  
Having a lot or house in Camaya coast is a good investment for the future, I myself can attest to its potential being an emerging destination in Bataan, which location is near in Metro Manila and it’s a perfect vacation house with a lot of water sports activities to do, guaranteed to be the next best thing in seaside living in Luzon.
For inquiries, or site visit I highly recommend you contact Girlie thru her mobile number 0905-319-5462 and 0907-744-9097, you can send her emails at dolfogerlie@yahoo.com.  Or you can visit their EDSA showroom  at G/F Prudential Life Building Annex, 31 EDSA, Mandaluyong City (Across Robinsons Pioneer).

The Dark and Light of Angel Moreno’s 7th One Man Art Exhibit.

A celebration of animals, flowers and fish, captivates the first painting exhibit in the newly open Dark And Light Art Gallery in Don Alejandro Roces Avenue in Quezon City, as they present the 7th one man Art exhibit of Angel Moreno last March 21, 2015.

Thirty pieces of his artworks mostly themed with his subject of coy fishes, sunflowers, roosters, horses, and tigers, are up on sale up to April 11, proceeds in each painting sold is given to Unilab Foundations, on their Play It Forward project as the beneficiary.



Moreno’s work is simply brilliance since he is painting in a very modern technique, not the usual art pieces you will see in some galleries, he is recreating the picture to come alive when you are looking at it, he simply called it embossed art that he admit a tough one to made due to layering of paints and colors. Mostly he paints by laying down in order for the paint to be perfectly assembled. His color combination using mixed media is something to look forward, a unique one I must say.

A bisaya in blood, Moreno aside from being a painter, he is also a multimedia artist who’s earlier talents includes being a film animator, and acoustic singer in different bars in Manila. Currently a resident of Quezon City, Moreno is an undergraduate of Fine Arts in University of the Philippines.


In our interview, he emphasize that most of his works is where his heart and mind, it can be notice through the evolution of colors he uses in many years, from monochrome  and now to a 3D portrait.

Living in the east with luxury, and a view of a lifetime.

THERE Is a buzz lately that there is an oversupply of Condominium in Metro Manila, this in spite of reality that Condos are now here there in everywhere. Is it also a fact that many considers to have a certificate of lot  or title, rather than having a posh unit in a towering building in Makati, Manila or in Quezon City, but to some who’s kinda blessed enough financially, to have a house in a nearby province is a wish.

Last March 15, from a friend connected to PrimeEast Properties, Inc, we got a chance to tour and explore the East, were the future high end City with majestic view of a lifetime is located,  of course with a budget friendly rates, no other than the Eastridge in the province of Rizal.

The almost 1,000 hectares EastRidge  is under the boundaries of five Municipalities in Rizal. The Angono, Morong, Binangonan, Teresa and Antipolo.  It is tag as the paradise on the top of the mountain due to its 200 meters above sea level location, so from there you can imagine how cold the weather is, and to note that air in EastRidge is pollution free.

According to Jocelyn Flores, Vice President for sales of PrimeEast Properties, their area has many advantage in terms of view, wherein you can see the beauty of Laguna De Bay, appreciate the lights at night through the skylines of Ortigas, Makati and Quezon City. And historically, the world renowned Angono Petroglyphs is in their vicinity.

Two world class amenities is now operational in EastRidge, the 180 hectares of land at East Ridge Golf Course and Golf Village with 18 holes, plus the Thunderbird Hotel, Resort  and Casino. There is also the Aguas Azules resort with infinity pool and its open to public, and for fine dining, Perlita's Garden Restaurant is the perfect choice.
Flores added that merely they are selling lots for now, the cheapest they can offer is P4, 500 per square meter, while the highest can go up only to P6, 500 per square meter. They have a five years plan to develop the said area wherein many investors are expected to put up business soon, she is sure that it will become a sought after destination bound from entertainment, to cultural and to historical.  But she stress that EastRidge is still a community, a village or could be vacation house for some.
Other local celebrities who bought properties in EastRidge are Megastar Sharon Cuneta, Roderick Paulate, Cesar Montano, Edgar Mortiz, Arnold Clavio, Jimmy Santos, Ian Veneracion and a lot more.
The area is divided into subdivision, and there are two clusters as of now, the Morella which has a theme of Spanish Mediterranean residential village, and Ravello that is pattern as the Italian-Mediterranean architectural concept.

EastRidge is under the PrimeEast Properties, Inc, a real estate company that started in 1982, headed by Alexander Asuncion. It is the same company who built Town and Country subdivisions in Antipolo in the past years.
For more informations, you can contact PrimeEast Properties through their Pasig Office at Suite 1010 West Tower, Philippine Stock Exchange Centre, Exchange Road, Ortigas Center, Pasig City. or at Unit 302  J&F Bldg, V.V Soliven Avenue 3, Cainta Rizal. Telephone numbers are (632)654-3552 and 646-0756. 

I must say, that having a properties in EastRidge is a good choice, having seen its beauty, the cold temperature, the close to nature you can get, is really a best investment of your lifetime.
