WHAT EVERY WOMAN WANTS



Every woman wants a man who respects her for her values, virtues and ethics.
She wants a man who is proud of her strong character and her unique personality.
A man who can support her unconditionally and stay connected to her soulfully.
A woman who loves you truly will never ask you to buy her expensive gifts or take her to expensive places.
She won’t ask for diamonds, rubies or a promise to bring her a world of luxuries. She just wants your love, care and attention.
She wants you to spend a lot of quality time with her and appreciate her for all that she does for you out of love and affection.
Every woman is unique in her own way and she wants to be the most appealing woman in her man’s life.
A woman’s heart is so full of love for the man of her life that she just gives it freely even for the little he does for her.
She doesn’t want commitments and promises she just wanted to be loved to the core.

BRSTN of Philippine Banks

A BRSTN code is the Bank Routing Symbol Transit Number, and is the popular term for a bank identifier code (BIC) used among banks in the Philippines to transfer funds. It is a 9-digit code identifying your country, city, and bank. With this simple code, oDesk's bank can route funds to any registered bank in the Philippines.

You will need to enter your bank's head office BRSTN code. We will use your account number and account holder information to route funds to your local branch. Subsidiary banks all use this same head office BRSTN code. Do not enter your local branch's BRSTN code — you will get an error.

To find your BRSTN code, contact your bank and ask for the BRSTN code of their head office or parent bank. Or, see our list of head office BRSTN codes in the Philippines:

Advice from a Divorced Man after 16 years of Marriage

An article I found online. I find it very inspiring. Specially for married couples.


Beautiful advice from a divorced man after 16 years of marriage

My advice after a divorce following 16 years of marriage, by Gerald Rogers.

Obviously, I’m not a relationship expert. But there’s something about my divorce being finalized this week that gives me perspective of things I wish I would have done different… After losing a woman that I loved, and a marriage of almost 16 years, here’s the advice I wish I would have had

1. Never stop courting. Never stop dating. NEVER EVER take that woman for granted. When you asked her to marry you, you promised to be that man that would OWN HER HEART and to fiercely protect it. This is the most important and sacred treasure you will ever be entrusted with. SHE CHOSE YOU. Never forget that, and NEVER GET LAZY in your love.

2. Protect your own heart. Just as you committed to being the protector of her heart, you must guard your own with the same vigilance. Love yourself fully, love the world openly, but there is a special place in your heart where no one must enter except for your wife. Keep that space always ready to receive her and invite her in, and refuse to let anyone or anything else enter there.

3. Fall in love over and over again. You will constantly change. You’re not the same people you were when you got married, and in five years you will not be the same person you are today. Change will come, and in that you have to re-choose each other everyday. SHE DOESN’T HAVE TO STAY WITH YOU, and if you don’t take care of her heart, she may give that heart to someone else or seal you out completely, and you may never be able to get it back. Always fight to win her love just as you did when you were courting her.

4. Always see the best in her. Focus only on what you love. What you focus on will expand. If you focus on what bugs you, all you will see is reasons to be bugged. If you focus on what you love, you can’t help but be consumed by love. Focus to the point where you can no longer see anything but love, and you know without a doubt that you are the luckiest man on earth to be have this woman as your wife.

5. It’s not your job to change or fix her… your job is to love her as she is with no expectation of her ever changing. And if she changes, love what she becomes, whether it’s what you wanted or not.

6. Take full accountability for your own emotions: It’s not your wife’s job to make you happy, and she CAN’T make you sad. You are responsible for finding your own happiness, and through that your joy will spill over into your relationship and your love.

7. Never blame your wife if you get frustrated or angry at her, it is only because it is triggering something inside of YOU. They are YOUR emotions, and your responsibility. When you feel those feelings take time to get present and to look within and understand what it is inside of YOU that is asking to be healed. You were attracted to this woman because she was the person best suited to trigger all of your childhood wounds in the most painful way so that you could heal them… when you heal yourself, you will no longer be triggered by her, and you will wonder why you ever were.

8. Allow your woman to just be. When she’s sad or upset, it’s not your job to fix it, it’s your job to HOLD HER and let her know it’s ok. Let her know that you hear her, and that she’s important and that you are that pillar on which she can always lean. The feminine spirit is about change and emotion and like a storm her emotions will roll in and out, and as you remain strong and unjudging she will trust you and open her soul to you… DON’T RUN-AWAY WHEN SHE’S UPSET. Stand present and strong and let her know you aren’t going anywhere. Listen to what she is really saying behind the words and emotion.

9. Be silly… don’t take yourself so damn seriously. Laugh. And make her laugh. Laughter makes everything else easier.

10. Fill her soul everyday… learn her love languages and the specific ways that she feels important and validated and CHERISHED. Ask her to create a list of 10 THINGS that make her feel loved and memorize those things and make it a priority everyday to make her feel like a queen.

11. Be present. Give her not only your time, but your focus, your attention and your soul. Do whatever it takes to clear your head so that when you are with her you are fully WITH HER. Treat her as you would your most valuable client. She is.

12. Be willing to take her sexually, to carry her away in the power of your masculine presence, to consume her and devour her with your strength, and to penetrate her to the deepest levels of her soul. Let her melt into her feminine softness as she knows she can trust you fully.

13. Don’t be an idiot…. And don’t be afraid of being one either. You will make mistakes and so will she. Try not to make too big of mistakes, and learn from the ones you do make. You’re not supposed to be perfect, just try to not be too stupid.

14. Give her space… The woman is so good at giving and giving, and sometimes she will need to be reminded to take time to nurture herself. Sometimes she will need to fly from your branches to go and find what feeds her soul, and if you give her that space she will come back with new songs to sing…. (okay, getting a little too poetic here, but you get the point. Tell her to take time for herself, ESPECIALLY after you have kids. She needs that space to renew and get re-centered, and to find herself after she gets lost in serving you, the kids and the world.)

15. Be vulnerable… you don’t have to have it all together. Be willing to share your fears and feelings, and quick to acknowledge your mistakes.

16. Be fully transparent. If you want to have trust you must be willing to share EVERYTHING… Especially those things you don’t want to share. It takes courage to fully love, to fully open your heart and let her in when you don’t know i she will like what she finds… Part of that courage is allowing her to love you completely, your darkness as well as your light. DROP THE MASK… If you feel like you need to wear a mask around her, and show up perfect all the time, you will never experience the full dimension of what love can be.

17. Never stop growing together… The stagnant pond breeds malaria, the flowing stream is always fresh and cool. Atrophy is the natural process when you stop working a muscle, just as it is if you stop working on your relationship. Find common goals, dreams and visions to work towards.

18. Don’t worry about money. Money is a game, find ways to work together as a team to win it. It never helps when teammates fight. Figure out ways to leverage both persons strength to win.

19. Forgive immediately and focus on the future rather than carrying weight from the past. Don’t let your history hold you hostage. Holding onto past mistakes that either you or she makes, is like a heavy anchor to your marriage and will hold you back. FORGIVENESS IS FREEDOM. Cut the anchor loose and always choose love.

20. Always choose love. ALWAYS CHOOSE LOVE. In the end, this is the only advice you need. If this is the guiding principle through which all your choices is governed, there is nothing that will threaten the happiness of your marriage. Love will always endure.

In the end marriage isn’t about happily ever after. It’s about work. And a commitment to grow together and a willingness to continually invest in creating something that can endure eternity. Through that work, the happiness will come. Marriage is life, and it will bring ups and downs. Embracing all of the cycles and learning to learn from and love each experience will bring the strength and perspective to keep building, one brick at a time.

These are lessons I learned the hard way. These are lessons I learned too late. But these are lessons I am learning and committed in carrying forward. Truth is, I loved being married, and in time, I will get married again, and when I do, I will build it with a foundation that will endure any storm and any amount of time.

If you are reading this and find wisdom in my pain, share it those those young husbands whose hearts are still full of hope, and with those couples you may know who may have forgotten how to love. One of those men may be like I was, and in these hard earned lessons perhaps something will awaken in him and he will learn to be the man his lady has been waiting for.

MEN- THIS IS YOUR CHARGE: Commit to being an EPIC LOVER. There is no greater challenge, and no greater prize. Your woman deserves that from. Be the type of husband your wife can’t help but brag about.

Lindseay Stirling Live! at AYALA MALLS this August 2013





Imbued with unmistakable vibrancy, Ayala Malls continues to be a premium entertainment destination that features world-class performances both from local and international artists. Its continuous and sincere efforts to offer only the best lifestyle experience resonate with its goal to constantly bring joy to all its valued shoppers. This August, get ready for another musical pleasure as the incredibly talented violinist Lindsey Stirling is set to perform at your favorite Ayala Malls.

Lindsey is a classically-trained violinist from Gilbert, Arizona who is known for her beautifully-choreographed violin performances. Lindsey started making a name in YouTube where she performed original compositions and cover songs from video game soundtracks. Her unique musical genre paired with her impressive dance moves instantly captured a good number of fans who were enthralled with her performance. But the 26-year old artist gained her mainstream popularity as she joined the fourth season of America’s Got Talent where she became a quarter-finalist. The same competition gave her the title as the Hip Hop Violinist.

Being voted off in America’s Got Talent didn’t stop Lindsey to pursue her love for music. In fact, this gave her an inspiration to start composing. As a motivational speaker in her spare time, Lindsey muses, “The same reasons I was told I wouldn’t succeed are the reasons people travel hundreds of miles to see me now,” she laughs. “Because it’s different. Because it’s something you haven’t seen before.” Just months ago, Lindsey was signed to Lady Gaga’s management company Atom Factory.

Lindsey’s self-titled debut album exclusively distributed under MCA Music (Universal Music Philippines) features 12 original tracks including viral smashes “Crystallize”, “Shadows”, “Elements” and “Electric Daisy Violin”. Her song ‘Crystallize’ was the eighth most-viewed video on YouTube last year, racking up an incredible 67 million views and over 2.5 million subscribers (Watch it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aHjpOzsQ9YI). With her fan base now spreading across Europe, America, Russia and Asia, Lindsey’s debut album has sold 150,000 copies in the United States, and has gone Gold in Germany (over 100k sold) and Switzerland.

Let her music tug your heart strings and be blown away with her beautiful performance on August 17 at 7 PM in Greenbelt 3 Park and on August 18 at 6 PM in Alabang Town Center Commerce Mall.

More than just a shopping destination, Ayala Malls remains the best venue to enjoy unforgettable world-class performances.


Lindsey Stirling’s self-titled debut album is now available in CDs at Astroplus, Fully Booked and Odyssey Music & Video or online via iTunes http://smarturl.it/lindseystirlingph.

All Ladies' Must Have: pH Care Feminine Wipes

I still remember when I was still studying in Manila. I usually left the house early to go to school, for I have at least an hour and a half travel time to reach my school. In between those jeep to LRT to jeep ride transfers, it is inevitable to experience the necessity to go to a comfort room to pee or the do other thing. And it's really so uncomfortable knowing that the bathroom you're gonna use doesn't have a good running water, nor even a roll of tissue to use (of which happened all the time).  

It would've been great if I had known about this UNILAB product called pH Care Feminine Wipes years back. It would save me  from stress and embarrassment..(LOL) I've been using pH Care Feminine Wash since time immemorial and I  was delighted to have received packs of pH Care Feminine Wipes for review.

It is best to have a pack of this whenever you go out. You can never tell if the next public toilet check-in is a disaster or not. It's always safe and better to be always prepared. 

So early today, I brought with me this little pack of pH Care Feminine Wipes. After hearing Sunday mass, me and my kids went to the department store to buy some supplies. Was able to use for the first time this wipes as I used the public CR at the department store. It's a total relief knowing that there's something you can rely on to in situation like this- using public toilets.

It's so refreshing too. Cool Wind is the scent, and yes felt like an after wash feeling. Cool enough to feel so refreshed. PH Care Feminine Wipes has an ActiveCool Formula for extra cool freshness to anyone who will use it. It’s kind of like menthol feeling. It’s pH balanced, alcohol-free and hypoallergenic.


This product is really an essential "thing" every lady must have before leaving the house. From now on, I'll make sure that I'll have one of this in each of my "gala". Might as well try other scents, too. 

For further information about this product and other UNILAB products, you may visit and check their sites on the following:

BUM endorser Daniel Padilla appears in 3 Magazine covers


 There’s really no stopping BUM endorser Daniel Padilla from conquering local showbiz.
Just recently, he has proven yet again why he is one of the most desirable bachelors this side of the world.
           
            This August, the 18-year-old star of ABS-CBN’s upcoming romantic series Got To Believe is on the cover of two different glossies: the college lifestyle magazine Chalk and the entertainment publication YES! Magazine. Prior to appearing in Chalk and YES!, Daniel also headlined the July issue of the male-oriented fashion magazine, Garage, wherein he sported the season’s hottest trend: metallics. 
           
            Daniel’s triple cover victory is a rare feat for any male celebrity, especially for someone who is relatively new in the business. But from the way he’s getting projects, Daniel, or simply DJ to his legions of fans, looks as though he was born for this kind of superstardom.
           
            It is quite easy to know why Daniel is so in-demand these days. Aside from having good looks, enigmatic charm, and that unmistakable Padilla swagger, which he probably inherited from his equally famous uncle Robin Padilla, DJ can sing well. In fact, DJ has released two successful Star Records albums, Daniel Padilla in 2012 and DJP in 2013. He also has a sold-out concert called Daniel Padilla Live: A Birthday Concert, at the Smart-Araneta Coliseum to back his music credentials.
           
            Daniel is edgy, expressive, passionate, and unpredictable. He’s never afraid of showing his true colors or going against the grain. Having Daniel as BUM endorser for 2 years now makes him a sought-after celebrity image model and BUM is proud to have him since 2011. BUM’s Daniel Padilla limited edition shirt Collection is doing well in all BUM outlets nationwide.
           
            These admirable traits make Daniel Padilla the perfect BUM image model. Both the young actor and the clothing brand seem to share one philosophy, and that is, celebrating individuality. BUM is available in leading department stores nationwide. For more information, visit www.bumequipment.com.ph or like them on Facebook at www.facebook.com/bumequip.
