Finding balance between passion and profession



Atty. Rene “Rebo” Saguisag, Jr. is a multifaceted individual who, despite his busy profession, never turns down an opportunity to work with his passion. Aside from being a notable lawyer, following the footsteps of his father, prominent human rights lawyer Rene Saguisag Sr., he was also a former BEST Center coach and is currently the UAAP commissioner for two consecutive seasons, 78 and 79. On top of that, Atty. Rebo is also a strong advocate of sports development among the youth naming the Mindanao Peace Games as one of his involvements.  Recently, he even volunteered to manage his son’s little league baseball team.


How does he balance his passion and profession? “I don’t,” Saguisag wittingly answered. “I just married the perfect wife who fills all my shortcomings.” Law practice and basketball seem like two different worlds. Managing each would require his undivided attention as they are both time-consuming and emotionally draining. He explained, “I don’t see it as an obstacle but a challenge and opportunity to better myself so I never even considered choosing one over the other. In fact, if handled properly, they can even complement each other.”

Saguisag stated that his success as a lawyer, his pride in being a former BEST Center coach and now the UAAP commissioner, his commitment to being a good family man, and a better individual are all because of the lessons he learned while playing basketball when he was still young.

“All I really needed to learn, I learned inside the basketball court,” he shared.

Saguisag’s experience as a former coach for BEST (Basketball Efficiency & Scientific Training) Center, multi-awarded and pioneer in basketball clinics in the country, helped in his values formation. He noted how the organization has instilled in him discipline and a great sense of responsibility. The strict guidelines and high standards imposed and maintained in the clinics and the proper behavior required in the court, along with the values taught in team sports, has molded him to become who he is today.

He further explained, “Playing and coaching basketball aided me in knowing the technicalities and rules of the game which is vital in my position as a commissioner. Meanwhile, small details such as punctuality and grooming (like making sure my jerseys are tucked) helped in how I properly carry myself, even inside the courtroom.”

So far, the former BEST Center coach and now notable lawyer-cum-UAAP commissioner enjoys the best of both worlds and aims to implement his advocacies for the development of both fields. He also encourages everyone not to limit themselves to their own comfort zones but instead, be open to opportunities, accept challenges and turn these into achievements. Above all, never undermine the seemingly trivial lessons you learn along the way for it is through these experiences that make you who are, regardless of what you are.

What happens after eating a healthy breakfast


We often hear that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. However, do you know what happens to your body after eating a healthy breakfast? Aside from improving your overall heath, eating a healthy morning meal helps you to focus, to make smart decisions and satisfies your appetite to help you avoid overeating later in the day.

“The literal meaning of breakfast is really breaking the fasting period of the night before. The span of time between your dinner and your next meal is long, perhaps 7 to 8 hours. That’s why it’s important to eat breakfast within 2 hours of waking up. In addition to starvation and low-energy levels, skipping breakfast can also make you binge and snack excessively later in the day, which can lead to other serious health problems like obesity, ” said Dr. Nicky Montoya, president and CEO of MediCard.

Here are more reasons why you shouldn’t skip breakfast:

It improves memory and concentration. Eating a healthy breakfast boosts your memory and concentration, especially at work and at school. According to research, eating breakfast leads to better cognitive performance, helping you concentrate more. It also restores glucose levels. Glucose is an important carbohydrate that is needed for the brain to function properly. “A healthy breakfast helps you have better coordination and problem-solving skills,” says Dr. Montoya.

It keeps you energized. Breakfast is the perfect time to fuel your body with vitamins and nutrients to keep you energized through the day. Keeping your energy levels high will help you accomplish all your responsibilities efficiently and eating a nutritious breakfast is essential for this. Try having eggs, yogurt, cereal or fruits in the morning.

It helps lower cholesterol levels. Studies show that people who skip breakfast are more likely to have worse cholesterol levels and insulin sensitivity than breakfast eaters. This is
because eating nutritious foods for breakfast helps you eat smaller meals and avoid fatty food throughout the day.


It boosts metabolism and controls weight. While you sleep, your metabolism slows down and burns less calories. A great way to kick start your metabolism is by having a healthy breakfast to allow your body to start burning calories as soon as you start your day. In addition to faster metabolism, eating breakfast also helps you control your weight. When you consume high-protein meals during breakfast, you will feel fuller, hence, avoiding overeating later in the day. Just make sure that your breakfast is loaded with nutrients and not with fat and empty calories.

It puts you in a positive mood. Sleeping for 8 hours or so usually mean that you’re starving when you wake up. Starvation can really put you in a bad mood. That can be easily dealt with by eating a healthy breakfast. Dr. Montoya recommends having mood-boosting food for breakfast like berries (e.g. blueberries or strawberries), whole wheat pancakes and a banana smoothie with nuts and flaxseed.

For more nutrition advice, make an appointment with your doctor or nutritionist. MediCard has numerous free-standing clinics located in key cities nationwide that offer consultations. Visit a MediCard clinic near you or check out their website at www.medicardphils.com for more information.

The Safest and All Natural Waxing Experience is now in Ayala Marquee Mall


Living in the Northern part of the Philippines can have its ups and downs. On one hand, year-round sun and fun; on the other, maintaining your body for year-round sunning and funning can be exhausting. 

When you have the option to slip into your shorts and head to the beach or pool any time of the year, the goal is to maintain skin that’s smooth, no matter what season, which can certainly be sorted out by an appointment to your nearest waxing salon. But for Hey Sugar! Waxing Salon, it’s as much about giving clients what they need while making sure that they allow them to feel fabulous about themselves as well. 


Hey Sugar makes all-natural and 100 % Sugar grooming options accessible to clients of all shapes and sizes. They use 100% naturally hypoallergenic sugar wax that minimizes side effects such as allergic reactions and chemical irritations caused by traditional wax—a gentler but no less effective way to keep your skin smooth and hair-free. 

Hey Sugar!’s interiors are renowned for being warm, inviting and discreet. Clients can walk in and expect a clean and sterilized environment ideal for the sensitive beauty routines that they are about to undergo, while still feel like they are about to get pampered and taken care of. 

And best of all, they can rest easy knowing they are in the hands of expert aestheticians who were trained to deliver only the best results. For newbies, this means you can easily ask your aesthetician any question about the process and advantages of sugar waxing and get a clear answer; for veterans, you know you will walk out of your appointment knowing there’s no other destination that can give you the same results using all-organic hair-removal methods. 

“We strive to bring reliable and fast services, but also connect with our customers—it’s a very personal grooming procedure, after all, and we are dedicated to making customers happy and comfortable. Clients expect quality service, superior treatments and affordable prices but not at the expense of a warm and comfortable environment—and that’s exactly what we have waiting for them here,” explains Arvin A. Amaro, Hey Sugar’s Marketing Head. 

At the end of the day, everyone deserves some sugar…and there’s no better place to get it than by heading to Hey Sugar! Ayala Marquee Mall, Pampanga.

A placemat sometimes called as table mat is a small covering for tables. A pad sometimes made of cloth, plastic or paper designated to each individual place setting, unlike table cloths that covers the entire surface.

People use placemats not just to prevent food from staining and spilling on the table cloth, and to clean the table faster (cleaning/replacing placemats instead of washing the entire table cloth), it was actually originally used for authenticity - to pull a look together arrangement or to dress up the occassion.

It’s all in the family



They say running a business with family members can be tricky – not only does it blur the line between what’s personal and professional, but it also has the potential to bring out the worst in you and your relatives.

Fabson Founder Loreta Santos and head of marketing Eric Santos with ISLA LPG Corp. (ILC) communications manager Marco "Mico" Santos (leftmost) and account manager

For the owners of Fabson Inc., a family-owned corporation that distributes Solane LPG in Iloilo City, working with close relatives has brought out the best in each of them. Eric Santos, head of marketing – and son of the owners – shared: “It’s a family-owned company but we strive to be professionals. And it comes naturally since we grew up working together. It’s an environment that we are used to.”

Looking at the company’s consistent growth in the past 48 years, it really looks like working with family is something that Fabson employees thrive in. Pioneered by Eric’s aunt as a single proprietorship in April 1968, it was then handed over to their mother, Loreta Santos, who managed to keep the company afloat with her prowess for finance and treasury. However, despite enjoying many years of success as a single proprietorship, they thought it could benefit more if it was turned into a corporation.

Spearheaded by their father, Winston Santos, who is also a former Shell executive, Fabson officially became a corporation in 1994, bringing with it the core value of Shellane (now Solane): “We care.” Under the management of Winston, the company became a more organized entity with different departments in place.

“Before my dad took over the business, it was like a mom and pop store. There were no retail outlets and there was no formal organizational structure. It was ran sari-sari store style, and we couldn’t grow as much,” said Eric, who also works with his sister, Pien, the COO.

According to Eric, his dad applied everything he learned from Shell, one of the top petroleum companies. He deployed retail sales executives and commercial sales executives to cover designated areas. “From handling a network of ten retail outlets, it grew to 20, and now we have around 600 outlets covering the whole area of our network,” he said.

In addition to Winston re-engineering the company, each member of the family was encouraged to be very hands-on with the business – from knowing the products by heart to studying routes of their delivery trucks.

Their immersion in the business is part of the reason why the familial relationship extends to their employees. With the “we care” core value, employee retention grew, and each staff members treated as an extension of their family.

Eric adds that every employee is trained to provide topnotch service to customers, including the 7-point safety check, Hatid Bahay, and 24-hour service. He notes that these after-sales initiatives are factors that help minimize the number of consumers who would buy at independently refilled outlets as they realize that the quality of genuine Solane products and the service they get makes it more cost-efficient in the long run.

Without a doubt, these business practices have made it possible for Fabson to become the longest running Solane distributor in Iloilo. Adds Eric: “This kind of business is something you have to immerse in because if you just leave it there, it can grow but you will not appreciate it as much. You have to sacrifice a lot, and you have to know your products very well.”

Gerald, Matteo, and Paulo’s recipe to sexy with Century Tuna




It’s officially summertime! And we can’t think of a better way to get into the groove of things than with the country’s number 1 tuna, Century Tuna, as it presents three “My Recipe to Sexy” dishes from three of the fittest and sexiest actors today, each one with his own distinct handsome looks, unique talents, and personalities!
We all know Century Tuna as the choice of health and fitness buffs, but it is also the favorite of many foodies out there as it’s a great, delicious addition to any dish. So why not have three of the most popular male actors share their favorite, easy-to-prepare and oh-so delicious Century Tuna recipes?
“Like Gerald, Mateo and Paulo, Century Tuna is very versatile,” relates Greg Banzon, Century Pacific Food, Inc. VP & General Manager. ”You can use it in different dishes, allowing you to be creative in creating your own recipe to sexy!”
First, there’s Gerald Anderson. After becoming the Third Big Placer in the first season of Pinoy Big Brother: Teen Edition in 2006, and after a string of television appearances, movie roles, and as part of a popular love team, Gerald proved his acting worth in the gritty, acclaimed filmOn The Job.
Next, there’s Matteo Guidicelli. Following a decorated stint in the fast lane as a karting racer garnering numerous trophies, Matteo entered showbiz in earnest, attending drama and performing arts school in the United States to further hone his craft. On top of that, he also released his first self-titled album in 2016!
And then of course there’s Paulo Avelino. Considered in the industry as “The Prince of Teleseryes”, Paulo has starred in a number of outstanding indie movie releases, among them Sayaw ng Dalawang Kaliwang Paa which earned for him the Best Actor nod from the prestigious Gawad Urian.
So what brings these 3 fit and sexy gentlemen together this scorching summer, you ask? They’re the latest faces – and hot bods – in the Century Tuna’s newest summer TVC, one that spells fun and fitness by way of its “My Recipe to Sexy” campaign!  For those who’ve not seen the ad which is now airing on primetime TV, it features the trio as “hot cooks” as they respectively present their favorite recipes to a sexy, healthy bod: Tuna Egg Salad Sandwich ala Matteo; Tuna Pancit Canton ala Paulo; and Tuna Silog ala Gerald. All nutritious, delicious, and most of all easy to prepare!
“Breakfast for me is very important,” Gerald shares. “And I wanted a dish that’s a healthier take on the typical Pinoy breakfast so I came up with this super delicious Tuna Silog. “
“I’m always on the go,” Matteo reveals. “I love having a lean sandwich because it’s easy to prepare. Just like my Tuna Egg Salad Sandwich on wheat bread which is healthy yet very satisfying!”

International Bestselling Filipino Author Reveals Keys to Early Retirement



Robert C. San Luis top international bestselling author of the book Wealth Without Wall Street -- Seven Keys To an Early Retirement held a seminar on financial freedom during the launch of his book at the Fully Booked in Bonifacio High Street, Taguig City.

With the success of his book in the United States (US), the finance guru, successful investor, and sought after investment consultant in America has arrived in the country on a mission to educate Filipinos on investment trends and achieving their dreams of financial freedom.

Born to Filipino parents, who were both doctors that migrated in the US in the 1950s, San Luis decided to take a road less travelled for a family of doctors. He decided to become a financial advisor and a business coach. “I have started an investment revolution and I have brought it here in the Philippines to mark a global campaign that will teach investors how to replace their income and enjoy an early retirement,” he said.


A successful financial planner to high-net worth individuals abroad and an expert in real estate investments and a manufacturer of housing communities in the US, San Luis observed that many individuals have a hard time enjoying a gratified life after retirement. “We build our finances and investments while we are young. We work to prepare for a comfortable retirement, but based on facts only two percent will enjoy financial freedom after they retire from work. And this is what led me to writing this book,” he explained.

With his expertise and experience in the world of finance and investment, San Luis came up with optimal ways that any one who wants financial freedom can apply. In his book, San Luis stated that if we see ourselves stuck at one point, we need to change strategy to change our lives, and it is paramount that we act on it swiftly.

“Filipinos are talented, smart and creative, but they are still in the dark looking for means to build a stable income. These people also spend long hours in front of the computers doing Facebook, Instagram, Twitter. With this opportunity at hand, make use of the Internet to create your personal brand,” he divulged.

He said that these Internet platforms have created a vast market of opportunities for everyone. However, he still points out that we need to standout, and become an authority in our field.

San Luis’ another rule for success is to keep moving. According to him, we also need to build our own business even if we have to start with a small capital.


Lastly, the book Wealth Without Wall Street will also help you plan to prosper. San Luis shares some of the most sought-after investments that can help you retire sooner. He highlights in his book that people should learn how to replace their working income with passive income by adopting a well-planned approach in investment opportunities.

He further related in his book to “ Focus on investing in a portfolio of assets that can generate the cash flow to replace your working income, once you have passive income equal or greater than your expenses, you are free.”

The Wealth Without Wall Street will teach you how to reduce risk, increase cash flow and enjoy greater financial security. It will also show you how not to work until death but will teach you how to make smarter financial decisions for a retirement lifestyle you desire.

The book Wealth Without Wall Street -- Seven Keys To an Early Retirement will be available in all Fully Booked branches by the end of the month. So make sure to make a reservation and contact https://www.fullybookedonline.com/contact-us.
