Side A and Real Life Foundation in “Para Kay Toto” Concert

I was spending time with my friends yesterday and we were talking about the coming Side A Concert in Bacolod City. What dawned on me is that this is not going to be a regular concert. The performing band would not be earning anything from this, but instead, they will be creating a difference for 1000 young kids who are currently part of the foundations who will be the recipients of this concert.

A thousand? That’s a lot! For other people, it is just a number but the lives that would be changed would be significant. Consider this: that the kids that tug along when you pass the overpass would not have the oppurtunity to decide if they are neglected and make a choice to “pay back” to the world through crime, but that through education, they can learn that other people care.

Real Life Bacolod: Why I Love Running


Archian - Life, Bacolod, Architecture, Finances & DubaiBefore we get started, I want to clearly say that I didn’t love running at the start.

I use to be that person who ran only if dogs barked and attacked me. I believe girls should run because it would help them get into their more skinny jeans. But me, I just wanted to skip the Dance Demonstration in La Salle (USLS). I had to try out and make the Track Team. (Now it sounds cool, I was now Runner)

For many girls, Running would allow them to have five cookies instead of one. And still maintain size: small. I run because it makes me feel incredible, strong and confident. Why should you only run when you are pursued by your neighbor’s menacing dog? (Almost never happens) Or you can really run because you feel good about your self.

Here’s some Ideas to help you love Running.

Runners in Bacolod1. Run with Music

There’s nothing like running through your neighborhood at the crack of dawn singing to Eminem’s Lose Yourself at the top of your lungs. Music was a great distraction to get starting. I don’t to think how tired I am with Continue reading

Psychologists in the 1940s believe that “Men are motivated by Continue reading
