New Police Chief Inspector Jovie Espenido declares that Ozamiz City is a near – 0 – drug free activity in the whole of Misamis Occidental. Out of the 10 drug test buy activity conducted, only 2 of it held illegal drugs and it is not clear whether the source is from the city itself or from another location.
Transferred from Albuera, Leyte last 2016, Police Chief Inspector Espenido is glad to find the local government open to discussions on drug bust activities in the city. After being tagged as the new drug-buster of Leyte, Espenido is now faced with clearing the name of Ozamiz City as an active drug activity place in Mindanao. From the latest regular session meet last January 16, 2017 held at the city hall of Ozamiz, he was invited to present his assessment on the latest drug activity in the city. For him, this open door policy exhibited by the local government is a positive sign for him to create a good relationship with the local government and the police force.

Based on his assessment report presented to the local government, the drug activity of the place is quite minimal compared to the perception of those non-residents of the said city. His is quite positive that this present trend will lead from minimal to 0-drug related activity in a couple of years since the local government is in full support in eradicating all illegal drug activity in their city.

From the side of the local government, they are quite pleased with the assessment report presented by the new police chief inspector and shall continue to maintain an open door discussion with the police force to help eliminate the false assumption held by those who has initially believed in the high drug activity in the city.  
This latest development between the police force and the local government is a clear sign of a hand-in-hand cooperation and relationship in fighting all illegal drug activity in the area of Misamis Occidental starting with Ozamiz City.

I am on The MApp

LJ Reyes unveiled a project she’s been working on for quite some time—the Smart Mommy App or MApp. Over on Instagram, the actress-turned-app-creator can’t help but reminisce and remember all the effort she poured into the app. 

She proudly says that It’s been months of hardwork and headaches, but it’s definitely worth it! From being just an idea MApp is now ready to serve and help all parents out there. She is forever grateful to the people who from the beginning supported her idea which she thought was initially a crazy idea. She credits and thanks her boyfriend Paolo Contis who paused and encouraged her to start building her dream and vision.

And the most important reason she did this according to her “how can I not thank my little one who has been my ultimate inspiration! Aki my love you have brought so much joy to mommy’s life and I cannot put into words how grateful I am to God for your presence in my life! In everything I do, you are my reason! God provides for me so I can provide for you, so I can take good care of a precious

MApp is a mobile application and online community that aids mommies. With just a swipe and tap from the list of sponsor child and family oriented establishments and activities, it equips mommies (and daddies – everyone!) with the perfect tool whether for emergencies or just for creating a memorable time with the family.

You can download it on Android via Google Play and on iOS via Apple Store for free! Plus their website is also an online bulletin board and community for sharing news, information and even personal stories, which aims to build a community that supports each other through parenthood.

I highly recommend it so download it now!

As moms, we’re all so busy focused on a wide range of responsibilities. We make sure our family members are well cared for, we manage our careers, we maintain our homes, we help our friends, and we actively support our communities — and, the list goes on. With ‘to do’ lists that never seem to get checked off, it’s very easy to justify putting off tasks related to our own personal health and wellness.


But, consider this … how do you think a car would function if someone didn’t change the oil, check the brakes, check and rotate the tires, and get tune-ups on a routine basis? Well, moms, we must all keep our bodies running like well-oiled machines. Paying attention and prioritizing our own health — by scheduling routine exams, staying informed about our health, and taking preventive measures — will enable us to function at our absolute best. And after all, isn’t that what we want? To be the best wife, mother, daughter, friend, professional and philanthropist we can be? Continue reading
