HALF a century ago, aerospace physicist Dr. Max Huber suffered extreme burns following a laboratory accident. At that time, neither medicine nor science had the answers to solve his problem. This compelled him to develop something to transform his skin. He harvested kelp—known for its regenerative abilities—and combined it with vitamins and minerals, oils and other natural ingredients.
I'M trying to be more conscious about having my hair cut regularly. As I wrote previously, I let six months pass between my last two haircuts—literally too long! It’s been nearly three months now since my last cut, and my hair seems to have grown quite a bit since then. So now, I’m wondering if I should try an actual lob instead of shoulder-length hair.
THE third floor of the expansion portion of the Ayala Center Cebu, particularly in the area where the recently opened branch of La Vie Parisienne is located, was abuzz with excited conversations from the crowd dominated by women.
It was immediately noticeable that most of those gathered there were dressed for an important occasion. Madame Amparito Lhuillier, the owner, was busy attending to the guests when I arrived at almost 6 p.m. last Friday.
AFTER my fourth visit to Tokyo three years ago, I thought to myself that I was “done” with Japan. Having made the rounds of the “must see” places in the city and its outskirts, and having made a trip to the legendary Mt.

WHAT happens when the living and the dead co-exist in the most bizarre situation? We have just observed “All Souls’ Day,” and once again TV news reports featured our less fortunate brothers and sisters who chose the burying grounds or final resting places of the dead to establish their informal settling.
THE LASER TAG experience is finally here in Metro Cebu. So it took quite some time for a recreational facility as such to get here (the first one in the country reportedly opened in 2008 in Metro Manila). But does that really matter? People who get to play it for the first time are in for a fun treat, and folks who have probably played it somewhere else may want to give it a few rounds for old times’ sake.
Get your engines ready! A parade of classic elegance and vintage beauties is hitting the road next month. Happening for the first time in the Queen City of the South is “Tour de Cebu” on Dec. 5 to 7.

Aromatic plants bestow | No spicy fragrance while they grow; But crush’d or trodden to the ground, | Diffuse their balmy sweets around. (Olver Goldsmith, The Captivity, Act I)
