BOOK HAUL AT THE 39TH MIBF! | INGRID NIETO Vlogs

Did a bit of early Christmas shopping at the #OMFLit Booth at the
Manila International Book Fair.

My suggestions for those who are going:
1) Best to go early if you can. I attended the first day and IT WAS CRAZY PACKED.
2) Payment options: They accept cash, credit and debit cards naman.
3) Bring a trolley bag/maleta. I totally forgot that. Ang sakit tuloy ng likod ko. Walking around the halls and booths while carrying your books can take a toll on your arms and back. Don’t make that mistake. ๐Ÿ™‚
4) Wear comfortable shoes for the book hunting marathon.
5) Make a list before you go. If you’re buying books as gifts, list who you’re buying for and what kind of books you’ll be getting for them. Having a list also helps you discipline yourself that you don’t linger too long and buy stuff you don’t actually need.
6) ENJOY. ENJOY. ENJOY! Having started school in seminary, we’ve been given a mix of physical books and ebooks to read. Ebooks may be more handy and convenient, but nothing beats the feel of turning the pages of a real book, highlighting and attaching sticky notes with your annotations.

Checking out iACADEMY’s Nexus Campus! | INGRID NIETO Vlogs

Kids these days are fortunate because their are institutions like iACADEMY that offer programs with focused tracks in animation, graphic illustration, robotics, audio production and even app development. I went on a tour of the campus recently and was impressed that those who are about to enter senior high can already begin their education and training in media, graphic arts and information technology. iACADEMY makes sure that they have active industry practitioners as part of their teaching staff so the training isn’t just in theory but more the practical side.

If you are a budding artist, audio producer, multimedia artist, animator, app/game developer or IT specialist, you might want to check out iACADEMY’s programs and see how they can help you become a future game-changer.

TRYING OUT ERICH GONZALES’ SLIMMING SECRET

IMG_8572

Ever had those times when you just want to eat all the food in the world without having to worry about gaining weight and growing those love handles? Even if I’m huge on vegetable smoothies and salads,ย  I have to admit that I get tempted when I’m faced with sweet desserts, pasta, crispy pata, bagnet and tender ribs. I have to battle with that inner voice that says “Come on. Just once.” But I know full well that that “Just once.” can lead to me using that as an excuse every single time I’m at a buffet spread. It takes discipline, doesn’t it?

Checking out the NU Skin Expo

Dave and I checked out the NU SKIN Expo held at the NU Skin Philippines HQ. We got to try out the Galvanic Spa (which helps combat aging!), their Epoch Essential Oils, their Trimshake and their body analysis machine which revealed that my body age is 5 years younger than my real age!

The S3 Biophotonic Scanner also revealed my skin carotenoid score which is an indicator of the tissue carotenoid concentration and antioxidant levels of my body. If you get a 10,000-19,000 score, that means 1) You don’t consume enough vegetables, fruits and supplements 2) You’re under a lot of stress; high sun and pollution exposure and 3) You smoke or are always exposed to someone who smokes.

If you get a 30,000-39,000 score, you 1) Get a moderate amount of fruits and vegetables 2) Have regular supplementation 3) Moderate stress, sun, and pollution exposure.

40,000-50,000 means you consume huge amounts of fruits and vegetables, have optimal supplementation, low stress, sun and pollution exposure. I was surprised that I got 60,000! ๐Ÿ˜€ All that vegan food is doing me good! Watch the different stations we visited in the vlog below
