I’m not a good dancer but I enjoy watching people and groups show off their moves in the club, on movies and TV, and performances. So when Robinsons Townville invited me to their dance contest, I immediately said yes. The mall held #OurFunOurSquad, which gathered different dance crews as they performed the latest dance mix of the Robinsons Townville jingle.
Over the past years, Metro Manila has seen life beyond the cityscapes with more spaces being introduced to cater to the demand of today’s urban dwellers who seek work-life balance.
While there has been a rise in the number of facilities that cater to these urbanites, these are still mostly in enclosed spaces. From traditional gyms to fitness and wellness centers, and warehouses that have been converted into sports complexes, these facilities lack the open and breathable spaces which are vital for one to truly live a work-life-play balance.
I wasn’t fully committed to working out in 2018. I promised to exercise at least three times a week but I rarely completed my goal. I’m not sure how I lost 20 lbs. but I’m hoping to replicate my success this year. Last month, I renewed my membership and found a way to motivate me to want to work out more. And guess what?

I weigh 212lbs. It’s not the heaviest I’ve weighed (I weighed a whopping 220lbs when I was a teenager), but it’s enough for me to be classified as overweight and to balloon from my previous size. I once was 180lbs, roughly the average for someone who’s six feet tall, but I let go a little, enjoying too much of what life had to offer my dinner plate. Weight gain is such an insidious thing, and I finally noticed when people tagged me in photos on social media. I became fat.
Jollibee is one of the country’s sources of pride, so it makes sense that it would team up with other organizations that make us proud to be Filipino. Their latest partner is the Philippine Rugby Football Union (PRFU), and a memorandum of agreement (MOA) was signed on April 10 to finalize the alliance.
