The Pros of Getting Truck Covers

There are more and more people who are getting truck covers that will help carry the exposed portion of their trucks. There was a time when people would place a topper on their truck but this has already passed. What people are using right now are customized truck covers that will help their trucks stay protected even when the trucks are left outdoors.

You may think that you only need to invest in dash covers. These are covers that you can place on the inside portion of your windshield so that the sun’s rays will not be able to fully enter your vehicle. This can be useful when you want to keep the heat out. At the same time, you will prevent the interior of the car from looking old because of the exposure to the sun’s harmful UV rays.

These are some of the pros you can get when you are getting truck covers:

  1. You will have the ability to make your truck more secure. There is a certain part of your truck that you may use in order to carry all of your items. You do not want your items to be fully exposed especially when you are traveling. Even if you are not carrying any item, you still need the cover. It can improve your truck’s overall security.
  2. It will provide your truck protection from the weather. You cannot control the weather. You will find yourself using your truck even when it is raining and snowing. Not only will you be able to keep your valuables safe, you will keep certain areas of your truck safe from harm too.
  3. The right truck cover can increase your truck’s overall functionality. Let us say that you need to transport large items. What are you supposed to do then? The truck cover will make sure that you will be able to transport all of those large items in a safe manner.

There are different truck covers that you can purchase right now but if you truly want the best, order a customized truck cover for your vehicle. It will make your truck extra protected.

Because We Go CRAZY over RICH GOYA Spreads

I’m always in the search of finding ways on how to fill up my Coco’s belly. As some of you know, he is a picky eater ever since he was a year old. One by one I try to introduce different kinds of food, some would be a hit, but most of the time it is a miss.

Coco is a growing kid and with that comes the “I’m hungry always” phase, one that comes right after a few minutes of his main meal. I already run out of ideas on what to give him – cereals, cookies, mamon. One day when he was 2 years old, he finally tried eating plain pan de sal. He doesn’t want anything on it. I felt that having just plain bread is too boring and that he might get tired of eating it.
DSCF6922When we went grocery shopping, I thought of buying Brand X. I loved it as a child, maybe he would too. I was right, he totally loved it on his bread but our pockets aren’t happy. We went looking for an alternative the next time we went to the grocery. While scanning the shelf, I saw Goya Choco Hazelnut Choco Spread. Checked the price and placed it in our cart. Ever since that day, we’ve been crazy over Goya Spreads.
DSCF7208DSCF7198
Recently, we stumbled upon Goya Double Hazelnut Spread. Oh boooy! It’s silky and has a perfect mix of chocolate and hazelnut. We couldn’t ask for more. We did another switch! Nope, not a brand switch this time, but a flavor switch! So now, we’ve been juggling these two Goya Spreads and Goya Choco Hazelnut and Milk Spread.
DSCF7204DSCF7201
Nowadays, I just stumble upon this boy, preparing his own Goya spread sandwich. It’s a joy in my eyes to see him eat – a lot and find how he is independent in preparing his own food. He’s gone so cray-cray over Goya, I swear!
DSCF7142DSCF7173
Whether to eat it straight from the jar with a spoon, spreading it to your fave bread or pan cake or induce it to your baked cupcakes or cookies, there’s no doubt that Goya Spreads, particularly, the Goya Double Hazelnut Spread can totally compete with other leading brands, in terms of its choco-hazelnutty taste, texture and most importantly, its price.
DSCF7169DSCF7170
You can enjoy Goya Double Hazelnut Spread in many ways at only P154SRP for a 350g bottle (and P297SRP for a 750g). Shhhh,,, Imagine, the price of Brand X, you can already buy 1 750g bottle of Goya Spreads.
DSCF6914This has got to be one of the smart choices I made for my family, how it took me to realize that I could make something so ordinary like a sandwich became one special treat, all thanks to Goya Spreads.

Here’s a great treat for you – One Smart mom will win these Goya spreads triad. All you have to do is to COMMENT BELOW what is that ONE SMART CHOICE that you made for your family. AND Follow WanderWoMom, CAT PR and Goya Chocolates in Facebook and WanderWoMom in Instagram. That’s just 5 steps. Contest runs until September 30! SOooooo…. GO!

4 Leadership Principles Startup Entrepreneurs Must Know

The road to business success is one that can be lonely and dreary. The unrelenting passion of entrepreneurs and startup CEOs, while initially beneficial for the organization, can soon become a deterrent to the growth of the business and even its people. And with their current knowledge and skillset, it is inevitable for any startup entrepreneur to seek help in developing and running the business.

According to the world’s leading executive coach and best-selling author, Dr. Marshall Goldsmith, the organizational dysfunction starts when the leader makes all the decisions and everyone else merely accepts them. As much as it is not enabling and maximizing the full potential of the employees, it is also extremely taxing on the top honcho. But that shouldn’t be the case, according to Dr. Goldsmith.

Having trained a number of corporate leaders across the globe, Dr. Goldsmith believes there are certain leadership principles that entrepreneurial leaders and start-up CEOs must adopt for self-improvement and re-assessment towards creating a positive impact on an organization.

1. Develop an exit strategy. “It is a good exercise to take and think of what you would want to achieve before you exit,” said Dr. Goldsmith. Drawing small and big finish lines helps diffuse the pressure of success, especially for startup businesses. By celebrating both small and milestone wins, it motivates the individual to continue to reach for the bigger goal without just banking on the big one.

2. Be a great client. “30 years ago, no CEO would have admitted wanting or needing to be coached. Coaching has come out of the closet and is something that people are no longer ashamed of,” said Dr. Goldsmith. It is important to understand that through coaching, entrepreneurial leaders are receiving mentoring which is hard to come by in the nature of the business. In the process, they are also creating a learning environment for themselves and their people.

3. Don’t get lost in logic. “A lot of your suggestions are going to become orders even if you didn’t want them to. I really have to caution people about saying ‘have you thought of this?’ or ‘have you tried that?’ because once you start saying that, they just salute the flag and do it your way,” said. Dr. Goldsmith. He added that success is now defined as how much you can empower others and not how much you can do yourself.

4. I know less than you do. Most startup businesses are created with intense passion from its founders – knowing the ins and outs of the business more than anyone else. However, as the business starts to grow, the game also changes as more people are hired who know more how to navigate the business landscape. When someone knows more than you do, it’s OK – that’s what the organization is for, it is about being able to lean on each other and working towards the same goals. “You can’t tell a knowledge worker what to do, you have to ask them what to do,” said Dr. Goldsmith.

Dr. Marshall Goldsmith will headline a two-city CEO, HR, and Senior Leaders conference in Asia this October, with Manila as his last stop on October 26, 2018. He will be joined by top coaching gun Dr. Peter Chee, and master trainer and chief coach Serely Alcaraz. The leadership conference is organized by ITD, the global leadership development expert. For more information and registration, call ITD World Philippines at +632 887 7428 or email at itdmanila@itd world.com.

How to have a smart baby: three simple things you can do for your child’s brain development during pregnancy

By: Ms. Mary Jude Icasiano, Nutritionist

As an expectant mom, you want the best for your baby. That is why you do everything you can to ensure your baby’s health. But did you know that you could do a lot of things that can help give your baby a bright tomorrow?

While your child is yet to be born, your pregnancy is a crucial time in his or her life. In
fact, the World Health Organization says that the first 1000 days of your baby’s life,
starting with the 270 days of pregnancy and first two years of a child’s life, is an
optimum period to building a strong foundation for their health, growth, and ability to
learn in the future.

Take these three simple steps to help promote proper brain growth and development of
your baby while in the womb.

Stay fit and active
Exercising during pregnancy may not only improve your health but also, the brain
development of your baby. The University of Montreal conducted a study where 18
expectant moms and their babies found out that after 10 days of exercising, their unborn
children have a faster brain development. This finding also suggests that being physically active during pregnancy can help increase your body’s blood flow, which can stimulate your baby’s overall development.

Talk to your baby
It may seem like a silly thing to do but, talking to your unborn child can help create and
establish a bond between you and your baby. In a 2013 study by Eino Partanen, et al.,
expectant women were given a recording that they will play towards the end of their
pregnancy, which included a made-up word. The babies who heard the recording most
frequently had the strongest response, suggesting that language learning begins in the
womb.

Playing music is also beneficial to your baby since it helps trigger happy chemicals like
serotonin, an important neuromodulator of brain development and the structure and
function of neuronal circuits. These chemicals also encourage your baby to feel calm
and even increase concentration power.

Eat healthily
Every food you eat during pregnancy has a direct effect on your baby. Take this as an
opportunity to eat healthy meals that will help with your baby’s growth and development.

There are certain foods that have been proven to effectively help your baby’s memory
and ability to learn. For example, a study led by a researcher from Cornell University
found that expectant moms who consumed nearly twice the recommended amount of
choline each day during their last trimester gave birth to babies who showed better brain function.

Similarly, consuming foods rich in DHA, Folic Acid, and Iodine, are essential for a
healthy brain development.

It is also critical to provide your baby with the nutrients that will support your baby’s
brain development. In addition to following a healthy diet, you also need a maternal milk
to supplement you and your baby with essential nutrients.

ProMama ® is a delicious tasting nutritional milk drink, scientifically formulated with keynutrients designed to support you during preconception, pregnancy, and lactation. It is rich in brain-building nutrients such as DHA, Folic Acid, Choline, and Iodine. Proper
growth and development early on can lead to better health outcomes later in life.
Caring for yourself is essential during pregnancy since it supports all parts of your
child’s brain growth and development. Creating a strong foundation built on healthy
environment and diet can ensure that your baby will have a bright tomorrow.

Finding home with music and a bottle of Coke

CokeStudioHomecoming

There are many things that make us feel at home – laughing and spending quality time with our favorite people, munching on our go-to comfort food along with a refreshing drink, or even listening to a song that brings back precious memories.

When we return to where we feel valued and accepted, when we’re reunited with the things and the people we love, when we look gratefully at our past experiences both good and bad, and when we remember the passions that inspire us, we come home.

These unique instances are our own moments of homecoming. When we recall a special moment, the memory comes with a tune that was playing in the background, a lyric that stood out, a beat that fit the mood, and sometimes even a Coke in hand.

With the perfect jam playing and a bottle of Coca-Cola, simple moments with our friends and family become more fun, more memorable and more uplifting.

Now, music and Coca-Cola come together once more to give young music lovers and Original Pinoy Music (OPM) artists a new home at Coke Studio Homecoming.

In line with the Company’s thrust to empower the youth, Coca-Cola tapped into young Filipinos’ love for music through Coke Studio PH in 2017. Coke Studio PH became a haven where the diversity of OPM was celebrated.

This year, Coca-Cola connects to Filipino teens once again as Coke Studio PH returns to make them feel at home with the familiar sounds of OPM, giving them an avenue to show their love and support for local music.

For its second season, Coke Studio PH also further establishes itself as a hub of Pinoy talent, as it introduces a stellar lineup of local and international Filipino artists across various genres.

While the previous season brought together veteran artists and budding musicians, Coke Studio Homecoming calls Filipino artists who have shared their talents to the world to return to their roots and bridges them with homegrown talents who have yet to stand on the international stage.

From this colorful mix of talented Filipino singers and bands, Coke Studio Homecoming will feature groundbreaking, new collaborations between artists, as well as unique renditions of their original songs.

Coke Ambassadors will also find their way back home this season, as Coke Studio Homecoming features familiar faces, including the brand’s most memorable endorsers and Coke Studio artists from the first season.

We received such an overwhelming response during the first season of Coke Studio PH and this really inspired us to work harder this second season and explore ways to take it further. Last year, Coke Studio became a home for OPM and now we want to continue and strengthen that legacy, making sure that the younger generation and the new lineup of artists can feel that same sense of belonging,” said Stephan Czypionka, Coca-Cola Philippines Vice President for Marketing.

While uniting teens through music, Coca-Cola takes it a step further by enabling them to do their part for a greater cause. This year, Coca-Cola announced an industry-first goal to collect and recycle the equivalent of every bottle or can it sells globally by 2030—a goal in line with the Company’s vision of a World Without Waste. This is why during all Coke Studio events, Coca-Cola encourages teens to deposit their PET bottles in designated recycling bins.  The Coke Studio TuneCycle, a stationary bicycle that also grinds PET bottles, will also be a staple in Coke Studio events. These ground PET bottles will later on be turned into eco-bricks.

Coca-Cola will reveal its exciting lineup of artists at the Coke Studio Homecoming Launch on September 1, 2018 at the World Trade Center in Pasay City. There’s plenty more in store so stay tuned and let the sounds of OPM call you hom

What You Need to Know Before Investing in Motorcycle Parts

Before you can invest in motorcycle parts, consider factors like safety, durability, and affordability in order to get the right parts that prolong your bike’s lifespan.

With good maintenance and quality parts, a motorcycle can last between 12-15 years.

How to maintain motorcycle parts

Prior to investing in a motorbike, you need to understand the main areas of maintenance like replacing worn out parts and giving special attention to prolong your bike’s life. Such parts include:

Brakes

Carry out regular checks on your brake fluid reservoir and brake pads. This will save you from an expensive visit to an auto repair shop when your brakes wear and fail.

Tires

A bike with cracked, cut or punctured tires cannot function properly. Thus, make sure to perform a thorough check on your tires before going out on a ride. See discount motorcycle tires for the purchase of quality tires at a discounted rate.

Motorbike chain, belts and drive shafts

Check on the lubrication of the bike chain and tighten if it is slacking. Also, clean these parts to ensure that your bike is well-maintained.

Other areas of concern include the battery, oil (including fork oil) and oil cooling system, sparks plug, lighting, rear sets, and the motorcycle cover. You can get quality parts on OEM Honda motorcycle parts.

Here are things to consider before getting a motorcycle

 

  • Body type – Get a bike that fits your body shape as bikes come in various models and shapes. This is important because some bikes can cause you strain and discomfort while riding them.
  • Level of riding experience – Do not go for a big machine if you’re on a newbie level. At the same time, an experienced rider may find smaller bikes not reaching to his/her standard.
  • Usability – If you are buying a big motorcycle that you will barely use is just a waste of time and resources. Find a bike that blends with your availability to use it.
  • Parts and accessories – Make sure to consider the quality of parts and accessories for a durable machine.
  • Area of riding – Your area of residence should be your first pointer to where you will often use your bike. Thus get a design that best fits the roads on your home area.

 

All in all, riding can be fun and enjoyable when your motorcycle is in a good condition and well-maintained. You can acquire parts from reputable dealers around you. See ATV parts near me.

5 Reasons to Travel with a Baton

Why are batons popular? The simplest answer to this question is because this type of self-defense stick is just about the easiest weapon anybody –with or without training – can swing and wield for security purposes. However, in some states, civilians have no authority to own a baton and only law enforcers can possess this non-lethal weapon. Thus, before you can get yourself a baton, make sure to check the laws in your state regarding the use and carrying of batons.

See weapons for self defense.

Why consider batons?

As mentioned earlier, batons are easy to use. You cannot really attend a training class to teach you how to swing a stick. What most people would require training is on how to tackle an attacker using a baton.

Non-lethal weapon. Batons are non-lethal weapons unlike guns and knives that can cause permanent damages like deformity or even death. Is that something you’d want haunting your conscience?

Batons are also cheaper than other defensive weapons and do not require as many legal regulations. This, however, only applies to areas where batons are legal for civilian use.

Why travel with a baton?

At some point, carrying a baton with you looks ridiculous and may seem like a weaker form of a self-defense weapon. For example, you may find it funny when police officers choose to carry these “useless” sticks instead of guns as they have the authority to possess one.

There are various reasons as to why you should prefer to own a baton and travel with it. Here are some.

  1. Compact and concealed easily

While in public, the last thing that comes to mind is having your weapon garner the attention of other people. Batons e.g. expandable batons, are compact and thus, enable you to have the element of surprise over your attacker.

Take a look at expandable batons.

  1. No Restrictions

You may get restricted from certain buildings or public areas when carrying some forms of self-defense weapons.

But, with a baton, you are free to travel with it and access various buildings or public areas while carrying your baton. This non-lethal weapon should then be your preferred choice while traveling.

  1. Effective

Batons do not require much training for enhanced use. Just use your body’s force and you can inflict damage to an attacker.

  1. Ready for action

You can easily access your baton and use it for self-defense. Also, using a baton, it is hard to miss your target.

See baton nightstick for enhanced security at night.

  1. Non-lethal weapon

Batons are among the non-lethal weapons to use hence save your conscience from potentially killing someone.

To wrap it up, batons are often legal but this does not apply to some regions. So if your state allows the use and carrying of batons then it is high time you get yourself one.

You can acquire quality batons from reputable retailers.

Oh! Silly Old Bear!

ChristopherRobin1The movie, Christopher Robin takes us back to our childhood, the “friends” we had made and the adventures we took.

“I’m lost”
“But I found you.”

ChristopherRobin6Pooh, who suddenly appeared in front of the lost Christopher Robin, whom has already forgotten all about his past as he has already grown up with more “important things” in life to think about. He brings him back to the Hundred Acre Woods to rediscover the boy that he was, “The Christopher Robin” and introduce that kind of him to his family.

“I always get to where I’m going by walking away from where I’ve been.”

ChristopherRobin5What’s more powerful is how they could trigger us – when we are so preoccupied with all the “important things” and then we forget what truly matters – family and friends – and that they are the most valuable. Such a reminder especially to parents who are always swamp with work and other things to take it slow and that the kids grow up fast, we should always make time for them – PLAY with them – no matter how busy we may get.

“People say nothing is impossible, but I do nothing everyday.”

Don’t get me wrong, work is important too. Just that, there are times that some would totally neglect what’s more important because of work. Why not get “busy doing nothing” with your family, so that when it is work time, you get even more inspired to do your job because you know that you are working hard for the people you love and that the people who care the most are happy.

“Doing nothing often leads to the very best something.”

nullIt is so refreshing, despite the gloomy feels of the film, to see Pooh and friends again. I don’t even remember when was the last time I watched nor read his story. I haven’t even done that with Coco yet. He just knows Pooh coz he always watch “My Friends Tigger and Pooh” in Disney Jr. | Mental note to watch and read Pooh stories with Coco | It just made me so emotional, because some 20+ years ago, he was my cuddly buddy who’s always got a rumbly tummy and here they are in all their stuffed toyed glory, in a live action film with some sort of similarities to the “Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh.” Why, it was really magical.

“Sometimes when I am going somewhere and I wait, a somewhere comes to me.”

nullMy favorite scene was after Christopher Robin has found Pooh in their “somewhere” spot, after he had lost him. Pooh and friends were asking about what the case was – “a case of important things” and if it was important to him and of course, yes. He was then asked by one of them if the case is more important than her daughter, Madeline, to which he replied that she means the world to him and that her happiness is more important. And baaaaam! Ouch. If it hit me, I’m sure you’ll do too.

Thank you our silly old bear, I will never outgrow you and I will never forget you even if I’m a hundred. But if I’m lost please find me, I know you will find me with a red balloon in hand.

PS. Please help me. We watched Goodbye, Christopher Robin earlier this year and it seems like there’s a difference between the two films. 1) I noticed that A.A.Milne passed when Christopher Robin was in boarding school, as a child in Christopher Robin while in Goodbye, Christopher Robin, he didn’t. He even grew old and they thought Christopher Robin has passed when he was in the military, but he went back. 2) Christopher went to military right when he got out of boarding school in Goodbye, Christopher Robin but in Christopher Robin, he went in as an adult, when he has already met his wife, married and is pregnant. SOOO, which is which? I’m confused.

*Movie stills all from Google.
