Air pollution is rampant all over the world especially in developing countries where people strive hard to excel in their industry for money. It may be disturbing to know this report from CNN that polluted air is indeed cancerous. Think about it! Major steps must be done by the government to at least help minimize air pollution. We can’t just stop breathing every now and then – to lessen our intake of these dangerous gasses. There must be something we can do but before that, read this report:

Air pollution causes cancer, world health authority says

By:  Ben Brumfield

(CNN) — The air many of us breathe poses serious health risks, the World Health Organization says. On Thursday, it added cancer to the list.

Air pollution is a now officially a carcinogen, and there are no caveats about the new classification..http://www.cnn.com.ph/2013/10/17/health/geneva-air-pollution-carcinogenic-who/index.html?hpt=he_c1#cnn-disqus-area

 



Sometimes, the air pollution saga becomes controversial – with some people saying that the cancer scare is just a propaganda by greedy business manipulators to be able to sell their health products for example. Others say that carbon dioxide emissions from substandard fuels are really not that bad but again, we are allegedly being brain washed by the massive advertising campaigns of improved gasoline giant traders. It may be true that money is the motivator of all these – but think again. We know for a fact that bad air is unhealthy ever since time immemorial. So, the best thing that we can do is to start conserving energy from our very own home and contribute in cleaning up the air by living as basic as we can

Tourists in the Philippines might have different ideas as far as having fun in the Philippines is concerned. However, if you are interested in nature, culture and of course simple but beautiful luxuries, you may want to learn from this story written by  an avid vacationer who is also passionate in writing his experiences. Read this to feel the genuine satisfaction of the author as he savored his every hop towards 3 of the most popular destinations among the Philippine islands:

Palawan, Cebu, & Bohol

By: Ruben V. Nepales

Sipping fresh calamansi juice one morning, over a breakfast of daing na bangus and garlic rice at the terrace of Rocky’s Café & Bar in Makati’s The Rockwell Club, I thought, I could retire in the Philippines when the time comes. Or at least split my time between here and the U.S.  http://balikbayanmag.com/palawan-cebu-bohol/



Philippine visits can be very special when you plan your trips according to your liking. Aside from the exotic, historical and pampering tourism offerings – you’ll find more joy in the company of the people you come across with. They might be passing acquaintances or soon to be friends for life – but there’s no measure for the moments you allowed to happen by just being there at the right place and time. Welcome to the Philippines!

A Treat at Seda BGC

welcome
By: Elena Grace Flores
It was a nice Friday morning when I received a follow-up call from Genny Puno, the Communications Manager of Seda Hotel at Bonifacio Global City – advising me to arrive a bit earlier than lunch time because the restaurant that she reserved for us was expected to be full due to corporate group arrivals.


Going to BGC from Makati was supposed to be a quick ride – but it still took me 30 minutes for some reasons. Seda BGC is located at 30th Street cor. 11th Avenue, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig City. I was greeted by the gentleman at the front desk who hooked me up with the host for that day.

Genny then ushered me to Misto, the restaurant for the lunch gathering along with two other media guests. This is where the hotel serves buffet breakfast daily and an Executive Lunch on weekdays. You can choose to sit indoor or outdoor. Stylized photographs cannot be ignored along with contemporary wall art and decors that enhance the neat look of the place.

It was refreshing to view the familiar selections on the buffet table. The salad greens were definitely chosen from organic botanical suppliers – as per the earthly freshness registering in my senses of sight and smell. Other selections although limited were obviously planned carefully but the steaming beef delicacy took majority of my interests. It was so tender, saucy and so good. Executive Chef Romualdo “Pepe” Castillo really did a good job in designing a well-coordinated package that one can’t refuse.

Deluxe Room
There was a great need to take a walk after the sumptuous meal – so going up to inspect the hotel rooms was not a bad idea. At this point, there’s no problem selling the Deluxe, Club and Suite rooms at an average rate of 4,500 Pesos. Published rates range from 6,000 to a bit more than 8,000 Pesos. Modern connectivity is an added value of the Deluxe rooms on top of the cozy furnishings and amenities. The Club rooms are more or less the same as the Deluxe rooms but with extended facility called the Executive Club Lounge. Personalized service is being offered here from check-in to refreshments. The kitchenette facilities are the attraction for the Suite rooms. This is where families can stay and enjoy the benefits of home cooked meals.

Straight Up Roof Deck Bar
Further on to the inspection was a short glimpse at the swimming pool area that is equipped with lockers and shower rooms. This was after the visit to the roof deck bar, the Straight Up. It was indeed a cool place for easy listening and cocktails – bur mind you, if you are a health enthusiast – the famous Filipino pork delicacy, Crispy Pata is being served here. It must be a treat while mesmerizing in this elevated magical setup overlooking the cityscape. Just limit your intake and you will be okay.


Seda BGC is indeed another profitable property of Ayala Land – being the first hotel to open in this well-developed Bonifacio Global City project – that caters mainly to travelling business executives and returning Filipino migrants. It was indeed a smooth visit as the name depicts – Seda is silk in the local vernacular. Wondering how it’s like in Seda Abreeza Davao and Seda Centrio CDO.

Seda Hotel Now Ready for Business at Global City

welcome
By: Elena Grace Flores
I was just recently driving through Global City Taguig – and I was amazed with the modernized developments happening there. St. Luke’s Medical Center and SM Aura are just few additions to the existing quality establishments in Global City. It was exciting hearing from a hotelier I used to meet during my stint as Travel writer in Cebu. Genny Puno proudly says that Seda Hotel where she is at now is already up and running. Full details will be narrated in my next article after the scheduled hotel familiarization trip that Genny arranged for me. Here’s the video of that 3-star hotel that will definitely be worth spending your time with during your visit to Manila!
