What: FIVE PXC 35Tickets for 1 Lucky winner (Upper Box)
When: PXC Fight happens on February 16, 2013
Where: Ynares Sports Arena
Time: Door opens at 5PM, Showtime at 7PM
Pacific X-treme Combat is one of Asia’s biggest and best MMA organizations based in Guam, they soon of course spread there brand to the Philippines and have grown massively since then. PXC has experienced massive growth in both ticket sales and TV viewers. Since then it has been tagged the fastest growing sport of MMA.
If you don’t know anything about MMA, I suggest you watch the movie BOOM! It was very fun and entertaining, and you would love the sport (If you don’t love it yet).
If you haven’t heard of PXC, then let me give you a briefer. Pacific X-treme Combat is one of Asia’s biggest and best MMA organizations based in Guam, they soon of course spread there brand to the Philippines and have grown massively since then. PXC has experienced massive growth in both ticket sales and TV viewers. Since then it has been tagged the fastest growing sport of MMA.
This February 16th, another PXC fight is about to bring you a packed card including a Lightweight Title Fight and an Interim-Bantamweight Title Fight. This will happen at the Ynares Sports Arena.
Featuring the main event is the Lightweight Title Fight with two Philippine fighters Harris Sarmiento (35-34) and Isiah Ordiz (2-0-0) in what must be a holding fight for the belt that Mark Striegl (12-0) is destined to win during the coming year.
Main Event: Sarmiento vs Ordiz, Tiamanglo vs Tanaka
I was there during the last fight of Sarmiento. Striegl beat him at 2:37 seconds of Round 1 – I was just getting ready for the fight, and then it was over. Well, I guess I need to get used to Striegl’s fights. The odds must favor Sarmiento because of the high quality opponents he already battled, whereas, Ordiz is relatively inexperience. I was there when Odiz had his last fight too, all I can say is – he is ONE FIGHTER! Backstage, he kept practicing his moves until the time he was called on stage for his fight.
If Sarmiento wins this fight, he must surely fight Striegl again.
The Interim-Bantamweight Title Fight features Joe Taimanglo (17-4-1) from Guam tackles Japan’s Michinori Tanaka (6-0) these two are both submission experts so expect a highly technical and exciting bout.

I spent 2 days in different airports. Went from one country to another, and I found out that the Philippines was crying because of the habagat. It was a bit hard for me have fun in my trip when some of my friends were waist-deep in the flood.
I went home via Clark airport and I was so worried that Clark airport might be flooded as well, and my car would be flooded too. Luckily it didn’t flood in Clark Airport and it is one safe place for my car, rather than I would have left it in my condo in Manila, my car would have been gone.
I got stranded in Clark area because NLEX was flooded and the rest of the roads I needed to cross to go home.
With nothing to do, I was companied by music and color. I brought my Urbanears with me. I waited long hours in the airport, and more hours being stuck in Clark.
After the rains and the onslaught of the habagat, we rise again. As always.
PLUS! There’s another colorful contest from Urbanears!

If you are a blogger, a freelance writer, or if you have extra time with you, then I think you would love to turn time into gold — to go beyond blogging, think business and become an entrepreneur.
A blogging contest for Filipino bloggers living in the Philippines was launched on 17 September by Easy Pha-max Phils. Inc. at the Blogapalooza One held at Fully Booked in Fort Bonifacio Global City.
Easy Pha-max offers a range of health products that I use myself especially the Wheatgrass honey! Drinking Wheatgrass adds value not only to my body but for the many things that I do.
This is for you if you want to win P10K for blogging
Open to all bloggers, the contest has a theme “Why I should be an Easy Livelihood member” which candidates have to develop in not more than 500 words.
For interested bloggers to be able to develop the theme, they will be invited by Easy Pha-max to attend a half-day Easy Livelihood seminar which the company conducts every Saturday.
Bloggers will be asked to come to any of these dates, Sept. 24, October 1 /8/ 15.
The contest begins on September 25 and ends October 25. Five winners will be selected and this will be announced on November 4 in the company’s Wheatgrass C.A.N. Facebook page.
The top winner will receive P10,000. Four consolation prizes will be in cash, from P2,000 to P5,000 according to ranking.
The contest, according to Easy Pha-max, is an opportunity for bloggers to know more about the company’s products and services. It will also be a door-opener for any blogger to earn additional income by becoming an entrepreneur at a very small investment of P5,000.
UPDATE: Hi guys, I didn’t win the GPSS contest so that means, I am not the one raffling the winners. Thanks to everyone who –supported me!
Hey guys! Adrenaline levels are up as September comes alive with Grand Prix Season Singapore! It’s that month where F1 fans in the Philippines get closer to living Louder Than Life if they choose to experience the Singapore F1 Grand Prix night race.
With this, I EXTEND my excitement to all of you as I will be giving you a chance to win
one (1) Turn 1 F1 ticket
via the “Support Your Favorite GPSS Blogger Tweet Race.”
This is where you will be seated!

check out the dark red grandstand on the upper right corner
Turn 1 Grandstand Ticket Highlights
Turn 1 Grandstand ticket is equivalent to SGD 1,288 or at around P43,000!
Access to all Zones, more importantly Zone 1 (some entertainment are only exclusive to Zone 1)
Drivers significantly slow down in this very tricky turn
Good seat for pictures
Accident prone area. F1 is really safe, but when there are accidents, drivers usually go down the car and walk to the pit 😛
Turn 1 spectators will be able to witness up-close the sheer skill of a Formula One™ driver. As the drivers jostle for the best position at Turn 1 after flag-off, spectators will experience the awesome braking power of a Formula OneTM car as they negotiate the first corner at about 90km/h after reaching speeds of about 290km/h along the Pit Straight. Fans here witnessed Mark Webber’s car hitting the barriers at Turn 2 in 2009, which ended his race prematurely.
The Turn 1 Grandstand is located in Zone 1 and is in close proximity to the F1 Village where spectators can enjoy roving entertainment as well as live performances from international acts. Spectators can enjoy access to the Padang main stage, where multi award-winning rock group Linkin Park is set to perform on race day, 25 September 2011. The complete entertainment programme will be released in the coming months. Patrons can also purchase exclusive Formula One™ memorabilia and Singapore GP merchandise, admire the exhibits from various Formula One™ teams, and take part in a wide variety of entertainment activities.

Since I am already in my mid 20s (let’s not be specific), I have been obsessed in staying young! I can feel many changes since I was 18, and mind you, the earlier you start in taking care of your body, the better. I’m talking not only about the food you eat, the lifestyle you live, but also that one protective layer of skin that covers your body.
For me, the number one factor in keeping your skin soft and supple is not to dry it!
On my first date ever, I was so conscious of my hands… What if he touches my hand? it felt so rough at that time! I felt like an old witch and not Snow White! Then and there, I know I had to keep on paying attention to my skin! I buy lotions left and right, but the trickier part is the skin on my face!
It’s so sensitive that I can’t just put on anything. My main problem is that I have a combination skin. I am very oily on my T-zone especially when I think a lot. When I work or when I studied for my board exams before. But outside that, my skin felt so dry…
Women, as a rule will desire soft and smooth skin yet in between facials this is a little difficult to achieve. Keeping skin hydrated is very important as it gives you smooth and supple skin. After all, healthy-looking skin is made up of high percentage of water. Without adequate hydration, your skin will look stressed-out, showing unwanted signs such as excessive shine, fine lines and lack of radiance.
What makes facial skin rough?
The lack of water makes the skin rough and sets the stage for fine lines and wrinkles.But what most people don’t know is that oil and water are two different things when it comes to skin care.We use oil-based moisturizers that only add excess oil to the surface of our skin.What you really need for hydration is to increase the water content in your skin.Water easily evaporates and dries out the skin, leaving it sallow and lifeless.Soft dewy and supple skin is ideal, but how do we get it?First we need to understand why the skin gets rough and what we do on a daily basis to contribute with loss of hydration from our skin.
In the morning, rushing out without sun block will contribute to all sorts of short and long- term skin problems.The sun is the primary cause of premature aging and exposure to the sun contributes to fine lines and dehydrated skin.
Your daily dose of caffeine sucks moisture out of your skin.
Aircon dehydrates your skin.Spending long periods of time in an air-conditioned room or environment dries out and stresses your delicate facial skin.
Stress, overwork and sleep deprivation causes the skin to be unbalanced. The result is dry, dull and dehydrated skin.
Drink lots of water.Juices and teas are not substitutes for water.Take water to replenish water loss from your skin and your system.Remember that water is the key to hydration.
The solution can be summed up in one word, WATER!Oil and water are two essential elements to make your skin soft, smooth and supple.Yet, most women shy away from moisturizers because it makes their skin oily.True, most moisturizers contain oil that adds even more oil to your face, which you are trying to lessen in the first place.Again, the answer is water!Dehydrated skin is dry, sallow and lifeless because it lacks water.Water will add plum, glow and radiance to the skin’s overall appearance and make it softer, smoother and more supple.Ideal skin is hydrated skin.
Neutrogena recently came out with a product that would solve this, and I had to test it myself!
I tested this on my left hand… leaving my right hand as is… It’s usually for the face, but I don’t have fine wrinkles yet 😛 so my hand is perfect for this…
and this is the result
*I put the contrast on higher settings just so that you can see better…
I wish you could touch my hand too so that you can feel the difference 😛
Anyway, it feels great that my left hand feels more moisturized without feeling oily.
