Yes to More Discounts with the Free VAT Campaign of Travelbook.ph!

Do you love traveling but feel that your earnings are never enough to cover the cost? Do you always feel worried about the continuous price hikes on commodities? Are you one of those who complains about the high tax rate charged in the items and services you need? It wouldn’t be surprising if you answered “yes” in any of these questions. Because among our neighboring countries, we, Filipinos, are the highest-paying taxpayers.


While well-performing ASEAN countries like Singapore and Malaysia are able to tone down Value Added Tax (VAT) charges at the minimum, the Philippines remains as the South East Asian country with the highest VAT of 12% in the ASEAN. Apart from this, the Philippines also ranks second in corporate income tax and personal income tax. Now that almost all purchases made are topped with tax, many Filipinos are struggling so hard to earn enough just to cover all their expenses.With that, Travelbook.ph, the leading online travel agent (OTA) in the country, wants to ease such burden.

 Just this July, Travelbook.ph launched its Free VAT Campaign wherein they shoulder the 12% VAT on all hotel bookings made by their customers.“Every Filipino deserves the best experience when they travel. And at Travelbook.ph, we believe that it should start at the very moment that they do their actual bookings,” says Mr. Takumi Nakazawa, General Manager of the leading OTA. All the customers have to do is to sign up at www.travelbook.ph and choose among the 3,300 affiliated hotels of Travelbook.ph for their trip. Travelers, then, will see that the VAT on their hotel bookings has been deducted from the total cost of their transaction. What’s more interesting is that on top of the deducted VAT, additional discounts may still be applied.


With all the stress and problems in life that Filipinos normally encounter, Travelbook.ph would like to give them more opportunities to travel so they can unwind and explore. “What we want to do is more of a public service instead of business. We have a heart for the customers and we do necessary actions to express that we care. That is how Free VAT campaign is born,” Mr. Nakazawa adds. With this latest offer from Travelbook.ph, everyone can now get hassle-free and pocket-friendly trips!

So book now at www.travelbook.ph to start the best travel experience you can ever have! 

This campaign might end without prior notice to the public.

Natural is Still Best to De-Stress Your Tress


Striking a life balance is no easy task to do. It requires hard work and dedication which sometimes can be strenuous to achieve. Can you imagine how overtaxing it is to juggle between your career and providing for your loved ones?

Studies have shown that stress is commonly caused by interrelationships, such as having to deal with work issues and family-related complications. If left unresolved over time, it could lead to immune deficiency, which later on, might cause other parts of our body to show signs of disruption like hair loss.

Many of us could attest to that. It’s like always autumnal equinox whenever we experience chronic hair fall, most especially at the prime of stress. At its peak, our white blood cells attack no less than the follicles, thus causing alopecia. What’s more, anxiety could drive your mane into a prolonged resting phase, which is called telogen effluvium.

Stress experienced by the body or beyond our coping resources could trigger hair loss symptoms, which, if not addressed properly, could result to early baldness. Worried about this? Fret no more. You can beat it simply by relaxing, eating or flexing some muscles.

Never underestimate the power of sleep. If you feel that you are over your head in dealing with anxieties, choose to rest it off for a while and recharge.

Let’s get physical to de-stress. It helps release endorphins, or what is known as the happy hormones, that can be beneficial in relieving the tension.


How about rewarding yourself? Watch the timeless story of Tony and Maria and their fateful love affair as the electrifying classic WEST SIDE STORY musical premieres at The Theatre at Solaireon August 10. Read more on http://www.novuhair.com/2017/07/novuhair-natures-answer-to-hair-loss-supports-west-side-story-musical-at-the-theatre-solaire/

Eat more fruits and veggies. Having these as a staple in your diet will bolster your immunity from disease, which in turn, knock out stress. We can all benefit from the vitamins and minerals of the healthy food we consume.

It’s best to complement these simple regimens with a topical solution that’s safe to keep your crowning glory at its robust state. NOVUHAIR, nature's answer to hair loss, is made up of 19 natural ingredients that work in synergy to help remedy stress-related hair loss and promote healthy tress and scalp.

The challenge in preventing these mane problems is to keep your locks healthy with proper care and let it grow naturally sans subjecting your hair to temporary relief with the use of harmful chemicals. Go natural.

NOVUHAIR contains natural extracts, herbal oils and essences, such as lavender that is also known to relieve stress. It also has a scent that leaves a calming effect.

NOVUHAIR is available at Mercury Drug and other leading drugstores nationwide.

You may also call NOVUHAIR hotlines at 4136570 and 09228830575 and order online through lazada.com.ph and regaloservice.com.

Finding the Right Family Car for You

Sponsored Post


Recently we just purchased a vehicle for our family of 8. Well, actually it’s my sister who has a major contribution to it, but she also wants our whole family to fit in it making it our family car. The first vehicle that comes to our mind that will fit everyone is a van. The problem is that my sister didn’t want a van. She wanted something stylish or something that has a wow factor in it. So before I divulge the vehicle that she purchased, allow me to share with you the steps we did before she did the purchase:
  1.  Know your budget. We were very firm about the budget we have so whenever we talk to a car salesman, we tell them upfront the budget that we have and what cars are available that would fit 8 people. 
  2.  Reading the vehicles’ flyers/brochures that include information of the vehicle’s safety features, number of seats, and more. Of course, going to each car shops is exhausting. So to save time, gather each of the brand’s brochures usually found in the malls and when we got home, that’s when we did our reading and canvassing. 
  3. When we finally narrowed down some vehicles that we like and fits our budget, that’s when we went to its designated shop and try out the vehicle itself. We made sure the whole family gets to sit inside the vehicle, try out the seat belts, ask if they’re comfortable especially the kids (5 and 9 years old), and such. We asked the salesman what happens to the vehicle if we suddenly had a collision and he did answer them in detail including the air bag features, which was a plus for us.  
So that’s a summary of what we did before purchasing a car. In the end, it all boils down to what vehicle is good for the family which my sister also liked so we chose the Chevrolet Trailblazer. Are you thinking of purchasing your own family car? You may start by visiting www.cars.com where you can canvass and compare cars. 


Using Hyperlocal Search Engine to Advertise Your Business

Using Hyperlocal advertising is the new way to find (and keep) your best customers. Hyperlocal is a local community oriented strategy that focuses on educating consumers in the immediate vicinity about particular products and services. It is a time-tested way to engage and grow your business. In online advertising, new terms to describe old ideas come along all the time. Such is the case with "hyperlocal advertising"—advertising to a defined local geographic area, usually a small area such as a region, city, neighborhood, zip code or even a block. The truth is, hyperlocal advertising has been around since humans started doing business, but the term became all the rage nowadays. Small businesses can reap huge benefits from hyperlocal advertising because they do not have to run national ad campaigns to get customer attention. In today's digital world, search is king. If a local company is targeting a local market but doesn't have tremendous name recognition, being found by search engines is paramount.


Lookna is a fraud-free hyperlocal search engine for local businesses. Lookna makes it easier for local companies to be found by search engines. Lookna has a map feature that enables you to drag the map marker to correctly pin your location, thus allowing possible clients to know where your physical location is. For example, if you own a bakery with a Lookna profile in Mesquite Texas, and someone is looking for a Mesquite bakery, chances are your bakery will be listed in the “local pack”—a grouping of similar businesses—and/or on Lookna Maps. That being said, if your company doesn't have a website, it's time to get one. Your website should be optimized for mobile and keywords (both broad and location-based) that would help customers find you during a search. Be certain to include your company’s name, location and phone number on your website. Lookna has a Searcher account-used by anyone who is looking for a specific service or product offered by the advertisers. 

A Searcher account is created thru search page or searcher sign up page. Once the searcher starts communicating with the advertisers, the phone number he used will be saved in the database and will be used as his auto-created login info. Hyperlocal advertising is exactly what it sounds like—marketing in your local geographic area to a narrow set of consumers. That could mean anyone within a 5-mile radius of your brick and mortar or women ages 15-28 working in a certain zip code in your town. It basically allows you to hone your message to a set of individuals with a very specific set of attributes in common. 

Pretty great, right? No more wasting time or money appealing to a market that truly isn’t in your wheelhouse. When advertising your business in a hyperlocal realm, using old school mediums such as newspaper ads, local radio spots, or billboards come into play. Since you have the freedom to delegate where and when your ads will run you have more control over who is exposed to them and a better shot at reaching your particular market of interest.

I Use Dove To Treat My Vaginal Itching

For the past few months, I have experienced external vaginal itching meaning the external area/skin around my vagina, not on the inside. I tried self-medicating because I experienced the same symptoms back in college and it disappeared on its own just by using Lactacyd. But this time, Lactacyd doesn't seem to work for me. I tried skin ointments such as clotrimazole and applied it especially on the groin area that started itching, too, thinking that it's a bacterial infection. Sometimes it stops, but it just keeps coming back. The itching did not go away and I was really tempted to wash it twice every hour just to relieve the itch, but I noticed I made it worse. 

I tried using Betadine Feminine wash and Gyne Pro, but I noticed they were too harsh for everyday use plus I noticed that my vaginal area is becoming dryer than it used to be. I tried PH Care (original scent) because I remember its commercial that it maintains the PH balance of our genital area, and it did disappear for a while. When I used up my PH Care bottle, my sister told me that she remembers her friend having a check up with an OB Gyne and told her that using Dove soap (the regular one, not the scented ones) is safe to use as a feminine wash and I should try it.  So I bought a small soap (worth P25) in the store and tried it. And lo and behold! The itching disappeared instantly and as of today, it hasn't come back. As of today, I use Dove as my feminine wash and it doesn't give me any itch or any kind of irritation. 

I remember that Dove keeps reiterating in their commercials that it contains 1/4 moisturizing cream so what it does is it continually moisturizes and cleans my genital area whenever I use it. So I guess the problem was moisturization and Dove replenishes that moisture. So now, I use Dove soap all around my body because, at my age of 36, my skin needs all the moisturization it needs. 

Please take note that this is not a sponsored post. I am simply sharing what worked for me and, of course, checking up with your Gynecologist is still the best way to go if the itching does not disappear.
