Bianca's Secret

There are really times when a woman feels insecure when it comes to personal hygiene and I think almost every female I know can relate to this insecurity especially when having the monthly visit or the "red" calendar days. Holiday? No, I'm not talking about holiday here when I mentioned "red" calendar days. I'm talking about when we, women, have our menstruation. Aside from having mood swings and the unexplained irritability and sensitivity, we also have this feeling of discomfort and insecure of our personal hygiene. And if its only possible to just stay at home and hide, we will do so.

And because Bianca is a woman like us, she is not spared of that also. I'm talking about Bianca Gonzalez here- the tv host, model, product endorser, among others.

Stand Up for Better Days


It used to be that the ideal Filipina was deliberately shy and reserved- she was the type to keep to herself, follow instructions, and speak only when spoken to. But with more and more women seeking better days, that is no longer the case today. The smart, modern Filipina understands that a carefree, worry free life comes from being able to stand up and take care of herself--- and that also means giving her health and hygiene the care and attention they deserve.

Feminine hygiene may not be the easiest thing to talk about, but just giving yourself the chance to listen and to be informed about it is your first step towards better days. Even someone as eloquent and outspoken as high-caliber celebrity Bianca Gonzalez understands the reservations you are going through-- because she also went through the same thing. "In our culture, Pinays in general are too shy to talk about matters down there," Bianca says. And she confesses: "I myself was so embarrassed when I first had to see an OB-GYN. Buy it is something every woman must do."

"We should get the protection that we deserve. For example, during red days, women cannot use ordinary panty liners-- we need to change to sanitary napkins of tampons. It is the same with the daily feminine wash we use-- during red days, we have the option to use better feminine wash," she says.

The reason for this is that you are more at risk for itchiness, infection, and irritation during red days. So settling for an ordinary feminine wash during your time of the month may not be enough. "We need extra protection during red days and BETADINE Feminine Wash can give that," Bianca says.


What BETADINE Feminine Wash does that a daily feminine wash cannot do as effectively is eliminate bacteria, viruses, and fungi that cause irritation during red days. Using BETADINE Feminine Wash means less risk of infection, relief from itchiness and irritation, and a worry free mindset that comes from knowing your health and hygiene are well taken care of, and that there are better days ahead.

"That is why this campaign means so much to me," Bianca says. "It empowers women, reassuring them that they are not alone in their worries, and that a product to help them with their worries is readily available."

The event was also graced by Dr. Lyla Reyes, an OB-GYN. She was explaining to Boy Abunda, the host for the event, that girls as young as 13 years old can start visiting an OB-GYN so that the doctor can explain and teach the girls about proper hygiene. The doctor can also help detect and prevent illnesses related to hygiene. 



Four lovely ladies were also invited to a question and answer portion with Dr. Reyes.

Ilustrado Restaurant Anniversary Degustation

Jose Rizal and the Spanish era are synonymous with the word Ilustrado but for me, what comes to mind is this restaurant in Intramuros, Manila. Coincidentally though, Intramuros was once called the Walled City and is rich in history and glamor of the bygone days when Spain ruled the country. Visiting Intramuros is like a history lesson itself and dining at Ilustrado is the cherry on top.

As Ilustrado Restaurant celebrates its 29th anniversary this October, it brings back the specially curated 8-course Ilustrado Degustation by Chef Bernice Pimentel.

"This year, 2019 marks the third year that we have been doing an anniversary degustation and this year, I am not only bringing forth our culinary heritage to the present but also incorporating much more local ingredients," says Chef Bernice.

Fat Fook Manila

Fat Fook Manila, the restaurant that's been making foodies excited with its Taiwanese noms opened its latest branch at The Globe Tower in BGC. The restaurant which has a seating capacity of about 40, also has a dedicated take-out counter should you have cravings for yummy Taiwanese snacks.

There's a lot of interesting noms from the menu but here are my favorites:

Taiwanese Sausage on sticks. I've been hearing about this amazing sausages from my friends who has been to Taiwan and its on the must-try list. And thanks to Fat Fook Manila, I don't have to fly to Taiwan to enjoy these sausages. It tastes sweet but the meat is firm and not as oily as our local sausage (longganisa). The garlic inserted on the sausages looks weird but it adds some flavor to it. I'm guessing that this sausages are best paired with a bottle of beer. ;)

Filipinos pride themselves when it comes to holiday season get-togethers with family, friends, colleagues, etc. They even try to outdo each other when it comes to discovering new goodies and delicious food finds.
