2017 wasn’t so bad after all

A year ago, everything was different. And now that I look back,
I realize that a year can do a lot to a person.

The end of my 2016 I guess, by far, the worst months of my life so I was never really excited to welcome 2017. I was so unsure if I can go through the days knowing my heart was still broken, I was broken. But everything shifted,from being in denial to finally accepting things, from being broken to finally getting myself back together. I guess God really works in mysterious ways. 

Spending more time with families and friends were always the best days! Single e, dami kong time. Lol The highlight of my 2017 would be about me going out on a date. HAHA Yes, after 7 freaking years.  Shout-out to the guy I first date after the breakup, you probably won’t be able to read this, but thank you for making may 2017 a  bit different.

2017 was a celebration of Life and Love.


Attended so many weddings, baptismal and birthday parties. Didn’t really travelled much this year, but definitely enjoyed partying and staying up all night.

Lost a good friend but gained a guardian angel.

Looking back, 2017 wasn’t really a year of pain but turned out to be a year of growth for me. I learned to love myself more and finally know my worth. I’ve accepted the fact that there are certain people that will come and will just be part of your life, temporarily. People come and go. I learned to appreciate and be grateful for people who chose to stay with me through all the good and the bad days.

To my friends and families who made 2017 worthwhile, thank you so much. Looking forward to more great things this 2018.

Live and Be Well with Taiwan Excellence Products

Rapid technological innovation has paved the way for better healthcare and medical solutions. Older people can move around with ease thanks to e-motors and scooters, people monitor their  physical activity with handy trackers, and surgeons are able to perform more efficient and safer operations with smart surgical solutions.

These are just some of the breakthroughs of Taiwan Smart Healthcare products. Bearing the Taiwan Seal of Excellence—a mark accorded only to the highest quality brands— these revolutionary products have guided people toward healthier and safer lives.

Utilizing 3D and Digital Imaging for Safer Surgeries

In minimally invasive surgery, fewer and smaller incisions are made on the body to lessen post-operative pain, blood loss, and scarring. Thin needles and an endoscope, a tube-shaped instrument with a camera and light, are used to guide the operation. The MonoStereo 3D System converts the 2D video captured by the endoscope into a 3D display on a monitor. Through these images, doctors can get accurate depth feedback in real-time, ensuring surgical precision and faster procedures.

Smart Surgical Glasses from Taiwan Main Orthopedics Co. Ltd. allow doctors to plan more accurately prior to surgery. As the surgeon looks at the operative site, 3D images of the patient’s bones and tissues appear on the screen, allowing them to save real-time photos. This can reduce complexity and operation time by up to 30%. An additional benefit to medical staff is less exposure to radiation from X-rays.

Keeping Sugar Levels in Check

With conditions like diabetes, ongoing monitoring of blood sugar is a necessity. Bionime’s Blood Glucose Monitoring Systems allow diabetics to easily monitor their blood sugar. The GM260 model delivers accurate results in just five seconds, using only a tiny blood sample placed on a test strip. The GM700S and GM700SB work with multiple types of blood samples, and the latter facilitate the transfer immediate transfer of results to smartphone via Bluetooth. The GM720 comes in an all-in-one fashionable case that holds additional strips and lancets.

Movement Anytime, Anywhere

Mobility becomes an issue for many people as they age. The ergonomic design and lightweight frame of Heartway Portable Scooters provide for travelling with comfort and ease. Weighing less than 27 kg, the foldable S19 Scooter Brio can be activated by one hand in seconds and may be stored inside a car trunk with no dismantling required. Powered by a lithium battery, it can travel up to 24km on full charge. The S21 EASY MOVE folds up electronically with a single push of a button, and can go up to 7 miles on a full battery.
