Despite the huge population of the Philippines. Infertility still happens and is often a burden on many parents who want to conceive. The data from a Synovate survey in 2011 shows that one out of 10 Filipinos are suffering from infertility. There are different factors that affect a couple’s ability to procreate such as socio-cultural practices, including the marrying age, educational status, professional goals.

Merck is now on its 5th year of pursuing awareness on fertility and infertility in the Philippines. Often battling many myths and misconceptions.

World Architecture Day and World Post Day 2017 with the United Architects of the Philippines - Makati

My wish for a clear day didn't happen. It was rainy and I have lots of stuff on my bag. The rain came and went from time to time. But at least it was not raining really hard.

I went on my way to the Manila Central Post office and waited for the rest of the group. We have some bloggers and also the members of the United Architects of the Philippines - Makati Chapter (UAP - Makati Chapter).

Merck's Fertility Awareness Campaign 2017

Merck remains committed to changing lives of couples with fertility problems
through the Fertility Awareness Campaign, now on its fifth year. 

MANILA, Philippines, October 2017- When you think of babies, first thing that come to mind is the feeling of happiness – of blissful parents cuddling their adorable little one – nothing short of perfection. 

Unfortunately, not all couples share the same feeling, especially for the 15% of the population who are suffering from fertility problems. 

Infertility is defined by the World Health Organization (WHO), as “a disease of the reproductive system defined by the failure to achieve a clinical pregnancy after 12 months or more of regular unprotected sexual intercourse.”

Eatsilog: Not just another silog

The first time I visited Eatsilog, located at  A. Canaynay Avenue, San Dionisio, Sucat, ParaƱaque City. I thought it was hard to reach. It is near Llanas Supermarket and if you like some walking it is near SM. The red color will be your guide.

Like any silogs their food are affordable but also well made. It is a step better than your regular silog. All the recipes are from Chef Oen Francisco and his partners Ms. Lexie Go and Mr. Dennis Pangilinan.

Going back to "7 Flavors" because why not?

And once again I am back to this wonderful restaurant in San Juan called 7 Flavors. I am eating now with more friends and other regulars of the restaurant. Aside from the 7 flavors you can experience and encounter I learned about their three goals, presentation, quality and good taste.

Before the start of the meal I was lucky enough to get pictures before everyone jumped in. 

Sorry but I start with the desserts.
