Just how hot is Summer 2015? It’s so hot that for the first time ever, says a woman in my apartment building, their air-con is on 24/7; to avoid bill shock, she tripled the allotted budget for the electricity bill. Their water consumption has also increased, which of course is always a good thing.
With various heat illnesses hovering on the horizon, we can’t stress this enough—hydrate, hydrate, hydrate, especially if you can’t avoid going outside. And remember, the enemy is not only high temperatures, but extreme heat coupled with such factors as strenuous physical activity, dehydration, and alcohol and caffeine intake.
What’s your game plan for these red-hot days? For those on summer vacation or on leave from their jobs, this is the perfect time to look into G • Eco Tours.
In 2013, we were introduced to G Stuff, which offers food and cosmetics lines made from clean and natural local ingredients. This year, ABS-CBN Lingkod Kapamilya Foundation Inc. executive director Gina Lopez has come up with another out-of-the-box concept in G • Eco Tours: vacation packages that combine eco-friendliness with fun and adventure!
Currently offering five destinations and with more to come, G • Eco Tours just might change the way we “do vacations.” Gina Lopez and the G • Eco Tours team sat down with LopezLink to discuss the whats, whens, wheres and whys of this exciting new venture.
The celebration of our chairman emeritus Oscar M. Lopez’s milestone continues with a special walk dubbed OML@85: Going the Distance!, happening at the First Philippine Industrial Park grounds on May 9.
Join and find out if you can keep up with OML! Kapamilya may invite a maximum of two guests. For more info, check out our story here.
What do you have planned for Mother’s Day? Power Plant Mall’s salute to mothers actually begins on May 4, giving those who want to avoid the weekend madness plenty of bonding time with Mom.
Whether your Very Important Parent is into crafts or pampering or simply spending an afternoon “chillaxing” with her loved ones, Power Plant Mall will help you make it a day to remember for your mom!
For more mothers and daughters, Bantay Bata 163 has a fashion show/food fair coming up a few weeks from now. The lineup is quite impressive and it’s for a good cause too! “Lola, Mommy and Me” is part of the celebration of Bantay Bata’s 18th anniversary.
May is also the birthday month of our chairman, Ambassador Manuel M. Lopez. Happy birthday, Amba!
Congratulations to ABS-CBN for its Anvil and Golden Dove awards victories, and to Energy Development Corporation for its win at the World Geothermal Congress.
