Invite good luck into your life by celebrating Chinese New Year at Evia Lifestyle Center
Welcome the Year of the Red Fire Rooster at Evia Lifestyle Center in Vista Alabang on January 28-29, 2017 to attract prosperity and good luck all year long.
On Chinese New Year’s Day, January 28, make sure to catch the Chinese Dragon and Lion Dance show in the Atrium at Evia Lifestyle Center at 4:00 PM. Have your photo taken beside the Money Tree with red envelopes that are symbols of wealth and prosperity,and shop for lucky charms at the Chinese New Year Bazaar. Both are located at the Atrium from January 21 to 29. Also watch the New Year fireworks display on January 28 at 6:30 PM at Evia Lifestyle Center Outdoor Promenade.
Catching a Dragon and Lion Dance is lucky because the sounding of the drums and cymbals purify the atmosphere and chase negative energy away. The presence of a Lion or Dragon scares away evil spirits and brings good luck to businesses and activities in the area. Since Lions and Dragons are symbols of strength and good luck, seeing them perform will make their good luck rub off on you.
The Chinese give away red envelopes that contain money on Chinese New Year because red is the symbol of energy, happiness and good luck. Actually, the color red is more significant than the money inside it because wrapping money in red envelopes is expected to bestow more happiness and blessings on the receivers. Have your photo taken with the red envelopes to remind you of good fortune all year long.
As for Chinese charms, traditionally it is best to get a new charm every Chinese New Year to enhance one’s good fortune. The right charms for the year helpalign with the new energy of the Year of the Rooster and make way for new beginnings. This year’s lucky charms are, of course, the Rooster, as well as FengShui coins, Lotus Flowers, prosperity candles, wind chimes, and personalized feng shui bracelets.
All these can be found and experienced at Evia Lifestyle Center from January 21-29, 2017.

Last January 19, 2017 (my first media event for this year), Sun Life Financial Asia Health Index presented a research about the list of countries in Asia where people don't exercise regularly.
Today's generation are more conscious of what they look because of the pressure from the standard of the society when it comes to being fit. With the increase of social media presence and usage, we sometimes get the lack of self esteem because of what we see online must also be our standard to follow. I was very surprised when I learned that our country, Philippines, tied with Thailand and Malaysia on the list, with 61% of the population in each of the three countries not engaging in any regulat physical activity. What I know is that we get fat because of our main staple food is rice which becomes the reason why most of us have big abdomen and stomach because it is carbohydrates. We know that our main source of carbohydrates is rice. Filipinos find it hard to skip a meal without rice. Okay, this should not be the focus of my entry. My topic is not about nutrition but exercise and getting fit. LOL.
Based on the research conducted by SUN LIFE FINANCIAL Asia Health Index:
The Barriers To Living a Healthy Life are:
57% of Filipinos blamed it on their lack of time due to work
47% admitted that it is due to "lack of personal motivation"
47% also idetified "distractions of modern lie".
45% said the reason their of hindrance were cost.
and 36% accessible venues to engage in sports and recreation.
I knew some individuals (including I) considered that doing household chores is a form of exercise. I guess what matters most to us is as long as we move our body and eat right
on time, don't get sick often, have a sound mind will be considered as physically fit.
Let's go back to the research above. These individuals are composed of overworked, overweight and overwhelmed, "Generation O" is a segment of the population first identfied in the 2014 survey of the Sun Life Financial Asia Health Index.
The Asia Health Index also showed that Filipinos were the mosy positive in Adia about their emotional health. What is emotional health?
While most productsoffer benefits only when an illness strikes, SUN Fit and Well covers our needs from prevention, to diagnosis, to treatment, and all the way to rehabilitation.
