One blessed evening

“Real joy comes not from ease or riches or from the praise of men, but from doing something worthwhile.” — Pierre Coneille

It was one heartwarming and benevolent affair to remember as the Francisfest 2008 concert, the annual fundraising event in honor of St. Francis of Assisi, was a success. Led by Santuario de San Antonio parish priest Fr. Jerome Angulo, OFM and Francisfest overall chairperson Menchu Concepcion, organizers welcomed guests and parishioners to a joyful evening of camaraderie and enchanting music highlighting St. Paul’s Oratorio by Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy. Truly a noble endeavor. Everyone went out of his way to show sincere support and dedication to an honorable cause.

Congratulations!

Zen and Now

Armed with the necessary scientific surgery skills for which she trained with dedication, Dr. Mary Jane “MJ” Torres-Valdecanas may seem no different from other modern-day physicians who practice aesthetic medicine until one visits her medical spa at the C1 & C2 Bonifacio Stopover, Bonifacio Global City, which she named The Zen Institute. It is a compact and quiet place that pampers patients with superb personalized services. A visit to The Zen Institute is a unique experience into a healthy lifestyle, beauty and wellness.

See you there soon!
