Live with the King



Live with the King, this summer!

I mean, be the ‘King’ of your own time and rule your own travel adventure. ☺

But hey, are you ready for the hottest season of the year?

You’ve probably done a lot of exercises and healthy diet in the past 3 months. Of course, you would love to see yourself awesome on your Instagram feed with thousands of like and bunch of comments.

When I stumbled upon Nuffnang’s blog, I discovered this newly launched smartphone, Huawei Nexus 6P, that would possibly be my next perfect summer buddy (not body, as in buddy) and travel companion.

While reading the specs, I am surprised how Huawei packaged its newest smartphone as King of Android. Being a blogger, one of the things that I always share to my friends is to have a reliable smartphone.

Since you’re reading this post and I consider you as my friend, I would like to share with you the 5 Reasons Why Huawei Nexus 6P is your Perfect Travel Buddy: 



First of all, when choosing a smartphone, you should consider the display and size of it. Is the size big or small enough to fit in your pocket? Does it have a clear screen display?



Well, Nexus 6P has a sharp 5.7" WQHD AMOLED display that gives you a stunning clarity with 518 pixels per inch at the same time with a superior front-facing speaker offers crisp sound. 


I don’t need to elaborate this why you should have a powerful camera. Duhh? Selfies, OOTDs, flat lays, etc. A powerful camera is a must!



According to their website, Nexus 6P's 12.3MP lens is the best all-around camera ever used in a Nexus. Where it really shines is in conditions with less than ideal lighting. The 1.55μm pixels capture more light, turning your best time into vivid, beautiful shots. With Google Camera™, you never miss a moment. Google Photos™ makes memories easy to find, so you can relive them in an instant.





I am an android user since the day smartphone was invented and I would love to say that I am contented and happy!



With this new Nexus 6P with pre-installed Google apps, I’m sure you will enjoy this as it`s ready to use right out of the box. Imagine, the best of Google in the palm of your hand? That's Search, Google Maps™, Chrome™, Google Play™, YouTube™, Photos, Gmail™, and more.




Travel adventure will not be complete without a power bank. But with the new Nexus 6P, a long-lasting 3450mAh battery lets you go the distance with added support from a reversible USB Type-C™ for fast charging. Sounds interesting?
 



Last but not the least is the performance. Nexus 6P has the latest software updates for an ultimate Android experience. Enjoy the freshest, fastest version. Also, Nexus 6P's hardware comes with the latest version of the octa-core Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 810 v2.1 processor making the performance of Nexus 6P faster than ever.




Aside from software, Nexus 6P’s curved metal shell is crafted from aeronautical-grade anodized aluminium. Diamond chamfers encircle Huawei’s iconic hardware design, which is sculpted to accent a low-light-loving, powerful camera.

Moreover, Nexus 6P's wifi combo antenna offers a fast, strong connection, so you can work and play, with no interruptions.

5 Frequently Asked Questions about ‘Pulses’





Have you ever heard the word ‘pulses’?

It’s not the one the doctor is using when checking your heart but it’s something your mouth would definitely love to eat.

Honestly, I never knew what pulses were until one night when I attended an event hosted by no less than Mr. Philip Goldberg, the US Ambassador to the Philippines, I get to know more about these little creatures.


Last April 19, Mr Goldberg presented several dishes and ways on how ‘pulses’ will be beneficial to our body. During the event, Mr Goldberg also highlighted that this year, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations has formally declared that 2016 is the "International Year of Pulses." This is part of the United Nation’s global mission to get us to eat more pulses.



...but wait, what the heck is a pulse?

To answer this question, I gathered the Five FAQs about ‘Pulses’:

1. What are pulses?
In technical terms, they’re the dry, edible seeds of plants in the legume family. In understandable terms, they’re a category of superfoods that includes chickpeas, lentils, dry peas, and bean varieties. They’re also incredibly healthy, affordable, sustainable and tasty.


2. What are some examples of pulses?
According to The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, some of the most widely consumed types of pulses include dried grain legumes like kidney beans, navy, faba beans, chickpeas, dried or split peas, mung beans, cowpeas, black-eyed peas, and several varieties of lentils. 

3. Why are pulses so nutritious?
Pulses are packed with nutrients, and are a fantastic source of protein, which is particularly important for human health. Pulses are made up of about 20-25 percent of protein by weight, which is double the protein content of wheat and triple that of rice. When eaten together with cereals, the protein quality in the diet is significantly improved and a complete protein is formed.

Pulses have a low fat content and contain zero cholesterol. The Glycaemic Index (an indicator of the effect on blood sugar) is also low in pulses, and they are a significant source of dietary fibre. Since they do not contain gluten, they are an ideal food for celiac patients. Additionally, pulses are rich in minerals (iron*, magnesium, potassium, phosphorus, zinc) and B-vitamins (thiamine, riboflavin, niacin, B6, and folate) all of which play a vital role in health.



4. Why are they considered superfood?
Pulses are nutritional powerhouses, loaded with protein, fiber, vitamins and minerals. They’ve also been shown to lower the risk of heart diseases and diabetes, lower blood pressure and cholesterol, and help with weight loss. Gluten-free and vegetarian, they contain twice the protein of quinoa.

Black beans contain 1.5 times the amount of iron as flank steak, and chickpeas have three times the folate (as essential B vitamin that helps prevent neutral tube birth defects) as kale, Plus, pulses are high in fiber – linked to weight loss and feeling fuller – and loaded with more antioxidants than blueberries or pomegranate juice. In fact, they’re so nutrient-dense that nutritionists actually consider them both a protein and a vegetable at once.


5. How good do they actually taste?

Pulses can be prepared countless ways and are delicious as well as nutritious, which is why many of the country’s top chefs have begun including them in recipes from smoothies and ice cream to main dishes.

You can check this link https://pulsepledge.com/pulse-recipes/ for more easy to prepare ‘pulses’ dishes.

 



Do you want to commit to eat pulses once a week for 10 weeks and join a global food movement?

Happy Year of the Pulse! :)

Make Your Own Havaianas at SM City Cabanatuan




Summer is here and it’s definitely the hottest month of the year!

This year, to make your summer vacation more exciting, Havaianas Philippines will be launching its biggest flip-flops customization event in the country – the Make Your Own Havaianas! 



Good news to all my kababayan, Cabanatueños can now customize their own flip-flops by mixing and matching colorful soles, straps and pins! Happening this April 22 to 24, Havaianaticos can enjoy this cool activity at SM City Cabanatuan, Activity Area.

On the other side of the world, in Japan, it's the time when cherry blossoms are in full bloom. To celebrate its 11th year, Havaianas fans in the Philippines can flex their creative muscle by designing their very own pair with Japanese-inspired theme.

Here's a first look at this year's Shibori-inspired limited edition commemorative pair available in top and slim soles. Shibori is a Japanese-inspired fabric-dyeing technique. 


Havaianas fans can choose from variety of accessories like kawaii pins - zori, empress, ramen and more!



It's no secret that Havaianas was born in Brazil in 1962. Unknown to many, is that the very first flip-flop was inspired by the Zori, a type of Japanese slipper made of fabric straps and rice straw roles. Havaianas flip-flops as we know them today still show marks of these iconic rice patterns. Havaianas is truly the child of eastern Zen and western joy!

Are you not from Cabanatuan?
Don’t worry, this event will happen nationwide! To make your own Havaianas, check out the following All Flip-Flops branches:
