Eye Society Dinner in the Dark

By | Foodie, Health and Fitness | No Comments

 First time for Heart2Heart to dine in the dark and realize how hard it is to be blind even if it’s something just as simple as eating. How blessed we are to have our sense of sight!  Thank you to @eyesocietyph  for your advocacy and most especially for providing a solution to help prevent blindness. Thank you for supporting the Eye Bank Foundation that helps people gain back their sight from corneal blindness. We all need to take care of our eyes #EyeSocietyPh#ESDinnerInTheDark #h2hhealthEye Society Dinner in the Dark (2)Eye Society Dinner in the Dark (25) Eye Society Dinner in the Dark (3)Eye Society Dinner in the Dark (9)Eye Society Dinner in the Dark (6)Eye Society Dinner in the Dark (7)Eye Society Dinner in the Dark (10) Eye Society Dinner in the Dark (8)Eye Society Dinner in the Dark (11) George Mirani and Margarita ForesEye Society Dinner in the Dark (46)What an eye opener for me!  I didn’t know!!!!

Not only did we enjoy the taste, smell, feel and hear about our food, we realized how lucky we are that we can see what we are eating and how important it is to have our sight. It was nice to see the food after because they were works of art so lovingly prepared by Chef Gaita and her team from @ciboph Thank you Gaita for giving so much of yourself always especially for good causes to help our society.   #eyesocietyph

Channels of Blessing, Anniversaries and Pentecost

By | Celebrations, Health and Fitness, Today's Quote | No Comments

 Every year for the past 23 years we celebrate Lola’s anniversary in heaven and her birthday. How beautiful what Fr. Caluag @titocaluag said about what an anniversary is about and how he linked it to Pentecost. “Anniversaries is remembering. Anniversaries we remember that which we celebrate. Every time we remember, we Keep alive that which we remember. And today we remember the graces that Tita Glecy had channeled into the family’s life and channeled to the thousands of lives who somehow with her own work in her lifetime have affected these lives. We remember the gift of the spirit. Remember when the Lord left this world, he’s final gift was the spirit. And it was the spirit that would help his friends continue the mission that he came for and the mission he somehow shared with his friends “

“The Spirit of the Risen Lord brings peace, as was the first greeting of Christ in today’s Gospel. Peace, as all spiritual mentors would say, is always a sign of the good spirit, the Spirit of the Risen Lord. It is the peace that helps us move away from the negative, from the clutches of the evil spirit, and regain our equilibrium to open our hearts, minds and souls again to the mission entrusted to us by the Risen Lord.” Channels of Blessings, Anniversary and Pentecost (2) Like Lola and Like our Lord, we keep alive their spirit by continuing their mission which they shared while they were with us. How beautiful to remember our loved ones and keep them alive not only in our hearts but by continuing their mission – the good they have shared or imparted to us #h2hreligious #H2Hquotes#h2hcelebrations#H2HChannelofBlessingChannels of Blessings, Anniversary and Pentecost (1) I’m happy to announce that as of today, Boy Samson @boyfsamson will not be undergoing surgery. Many of you know him but for those who don’t, Boy is a loyal employee of Rustan’s Supermarket and has served ( and continue to ) many customers through the years. Thanks to God for watching over him.  Channels of Blessings, Anniversary and Pentecost (5)

For some reason last Thursday I received a text from a common friend of Boy – Bambi Reyes Javelosa @bambi_linkedge – and so I found out about his condition. First instinct was to ask the family to help raise funds. So I announced it to the family only to get the best advice which was to send him to Dr Sta. Cruz ( because touching the prostate is very dangerous ) and with the help of Jackie @jackie_plomantes1206 saw him immediately that day. Boy was accompanied by his wife and daughterChannels of Blessings, Anniversary and Pentecost (6)Dr. Sta. Cruz and his son Dr. Miko was with him for 5 hours doing tests.Channels of Blessings, Anniversary and Pentecost (8)Channels of Blessings, Anniversary and Pentecost (7)

Apparently, Dr Sta Cruz is known for non surgical treatment of the prostate. Was it coincidence that Boy’s surgery was postponed that day and moved to June 8? No it’s not! Dr. Sta. Cruz will try to cure him without operating! Alleluia!!!! And he tells me he will help Boy at no cost – because of my Lolo !  I want to cry!!!! All this happened because God worked thru different “channels of blessing” ( Ty to Lills @lilliannmgmailcom for this term ) from Bambi, to me thru my titas, thru lolo and dr Sta Cruz

 I told Dr. Sta Cruz I wanted to blog him and just that day his new website was up, visit https://www.drestacruzprostate.com Many people from all over the world go to him for treatment. Almost 20 years ago my Lolo flew him to the States to treat him and he’s living proof of his healing powers. I’m sharing this story as proof of God working through many channels of blessings. We all are and sometimes we unconsciously don’t know that God is using us/you to do things for Him in this world. In small & big ways. That is our mission in life – to do what God has in store for us – our mission – His mission. Celebrating Pentecost today when Jesus sent the Holy Spirit as a sign for the apostles to continue his mission ! #h2hreligious #H2Hquotes #h2hhealth#H2HChannelofBlessing #h2hrustans#h2hdoctors #H2HPeopleChannels of Blessings, Anniversary and Pentecost (4)  Dr. Sta Cruz can also help couples who have a hard time having a babyChannels of Blessings, Anniversary and Pentecost (3)

Dra. Vanessa Villar Viterbo

By | Health and Fitness, Medical | No Comments

 Super happy to visit our friend Vanessa Villar Viterbo @docv3 who is a Family Medicine doctor in Pennsylvania ! She has her own clinic in a cozy house in Maryland with her partner Bonnie for 12 years already. She loves clowns :-) and has a collection of clowns from her patients.   I wish we had Family medicine doctors in Manila. They basically are your main doctor and they take care of you and know everything about your health and if needed they will refer you to a specialist if needed. But they will monitor all your medical needs. So if you are in the area, be assured there is a good doctor in the area- super sweet and super nice – Doc triple V  – Vanessa !  #H2HPeople#h2hdoctors #H2HHealth#H2HPennsylvania2017Dra.
