World Diabetes Day

Though I'm not diabetic, I joined the celebration of World Diabetes Day in our country in order to support the campaign to spread awareness on how to avoid and fight the disease. Topics discussed during the event includes Types of Diabetes, Proper Nutrition, and Weight Loss Through Running. It was held at Glorieta 5 Activity Center last November 17, 2012.

Nestlé Fitnesse Shape Up Night

The Lucky Winners of Nestlé Fitnesse Cereal and Free Membership at Fitness First Philippines for six months with party host  Miss Iya Villana on my right, the Marketing Managers of Nestlé Philippines and Fitness First Philippines and the international Zumba specialist David Velez.

I seldom go to a party but my friend Nancy had convinced me to join the Nestlé Fitnesse Shape Up Night last March 31, 2012 at NBC Tent, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig. 

It was sometime in March last year when Nancy gave me a small flyer with details on how to be a part of the Zumba Fitness party.  I thought there's nothing wrong if I would go to this summer party because it promotes the fun side of health and wellness. 

In order to join the party, participants must show a proof of purchase of any Nestlé Fitnesse Cereal or buy one at the event. Of course like other fitness enthusiasts, I didn't want to miss this rare chance to dance with international Zumba specialist Mr. David Velez and meet the lovely VJ Ms. Iya Villana! The next day, I bought one box of Nestlé Fitnesse cereal for only P 99.00 at Market!Market! and kept my receipt as my pass. Aside from getting the opportunity join the Zumba Fitness party, I learned that there's a promo on Facebook Fanpage of Nestlé Philippines. I registered wishing that I would win a six month supply of Nestlé Fitnesse Cereal and a six month free membership at Fitness First Philippines.

The lively and untiring crowd danced for more than two hours at NBC Tent.

I was very lucky that night to experience Zumba Party for the first time. There were lots of activity booths that I really enjoyed like Glitter Tattoo, Nutrition Counseling and Animated Photo Booklet. While waiting for the program to start, we're generously treated with an unlimited free taste of Nestle products such as Nestlé Fitnesse Cereal, Nestlé Fruit Selection Yogurt, Nestlé Fresh Milk and Nestlé Yogurt Drink in Mango and Strawberry flavors.

Nestlé Philippines with the supervision of a DTI already picked the 14 lucky winners of a six month supply of Nestle Fitnesse Cereal and a six month free membership at Fitness First Philippines by means of an electronic raffle of the entries submitted in its Facebook Fanpage.

My wish was granted! I won! 

After the 14 day Nestlé Fitnesse Challenge:

From the month of May until November 2012, Nestle Philippines sent me a total of 90 boxes (330g) of Nestle Fitnesse Cereal through JRS Express. I also shared my cereal to my officemates and friends.  

Thank you very much Nestle Philippines and Fitness First Philippines!

I Made This!

Photo A Day
March 2, 2013
I Made This!
I wake up early just to take a photo of something I made for the second day of my Photo A Challenge. Actually, I made this blog, Fely N Stitch, so that I can show you my sewing projects.

I made this biased purple dress using the sewing machine of my mother-in-law. The year after, I bought my own Singer sewing machine. Having my own equipment, I have more time making costumes for my friends. We participated in the Pinoy Otaku Encore 2011 held at SM Mega Trade Hall last November 26, 2011.

I was inspired by this Red Hot dress Tom  and Linda Platt that was featured in the December 2010 issue of Vogue Patterns. So, I made one for myself using one and a half meter purple silk satin which I bought for only P 180.00 at Gaisano, Market! Market. Making this project was so easy! I just cut the fabric into two bias and connected to each other without notions needed. In order to achieve a smooth finish, I asked someone in the tailoring shop to sew the edges using a zigzig machine which I paid P 40.00 for the service. I only spent two hours finishing this project!
