Dad's 61st Birthday Celebration at Kimpura Greenhills

My visit: February 23, 2012

My dad celebrated his 61st birthday in Kimpura, his favorite Japanese restaurant. I figured we don't need a reservation because it was a weekday but when we arrived, several tables were already occupied and the teppan-yaki table was already full.

DH and I arrived earlier than the rest of my family. I gave the birthday cake to the receptionist for safe keeping ; p

In the middle of our dinner, the waiters and waitresses sang "Happy Birthday" song to my dad ; ) The restaurant gave a free ice cream dessert- the one with a lighted candle in the background.

ANLENE... Stronger Bones, Stronger Ties

Commercial break muna!

Are you at risk of osteoporosis? You would not know unless you have it check through a bone scan analysis provided for free by Anlene. Over 1 million Filipinos have benefitted from the ANLENE Bone Health Check campaign since it started in 1999. 

Anlene is the only milk that is clinically proven to reduce bone breakdown within four weeks.

sisters Lene Almoniña & Mary Ann Suzon 

Osteoporosis occurs when the bone mass decreases quickly more than the body can replace it, leading to a net loss of bone strength. As a result, a slight bump or fall can result to fracture. It affects all bones in the body but fractures occur mostly in the spine, hips, and wrist. Broken bones bring severe pain, and both hip and spine fractures were found out to be associated with a higher risk of death –  20% of those who suffer hip fracture die within six months after the fracture.

Take this story of two sisters, Lene Almoniña (50) and Mary Ann Suzon (48). The sisters were unsuspecting victims of the silent disease called osteoporosis. Just last year after having their ANLENE bone scan analysis inside a mall, Lene found out that she was of moderate risk of osteoporosis while her sister, Mary Ann found out that she was at high risk. While Lene doesn't feel a thing prior to her bone scan analysis, Mary Ann already felt pain that run up to her back.

Both sisters acted right and decided to do something about their condition. They followed the advice of the nutritionist at the ANLENE booth- diet, exercise and drink calcium-rich milk like ANLENE as a nutritional supplement.

My event: February 23, 2012

Nestle Fitness Shape Up Your Lifestyle
Featuring Zumba Fitness
Top of the Citi by Chef Jessie
34/ F Citibank Tower
8741 Paseo de Roxas,
Makati City

I am addicted to Zumba! In fact, I am currently enrolled in one of the studios near my house. When I got an invite to attend a fitness event featuring a Zumba class, how can I say no?

Whole grain food, such as Nestle Fitnesse cereal makes you feel fuller longer because it is high in volume and low-calorie density. 

While waiting for the event to start, we were treated to a healthy breakfast courtesy of Nestle Fitnesse. Three choices were available- Low Fat Whole Grain Cereal, Fitnesse &  Fruit and Honey & Almond. The cereal was complemented by Nestle Low Fat 100% Fresh Cow's Milk and some dried fruits and nuts. This was a nice alternative to my usual bread with peanut butter breakfast ; p
