HIV Testing is no longer a taboo. It is not only one of the safest ways of slowing the HIV epidemic, but also the surest way of improving your well being as an active individual.
Here are the five reasons, which i think should be the motivation of getting HIV Tested why you should get HIV tested:
1. Healthier Life
Going to the doctor for your regular annual check-up is key to healthly living. With the doctors diagnosis, you are advised with the best ways of addressing a looming health problem. With this also, you are referred to the best specialist there is for your problem. If you are diagnosed to be healthy, you are reminded on how to keep it up or improve it for the better.
2. Protecting our loved ones
Knowing early can provide you and your partner early information of protection. It does not mean that if you are HIV positive, the sex life ends. Safe techniques are shared and can easily be learned.
3. Make informed decisions
Hearsay is trash even if it comes from a friend who is not an expert on any health issue. Confirming your status can allow you to make the informed decision and based on what is factual.
4. Ask the right question
Living healthy is directly parallel to how you know your body. Getting tested for HIV can give you the opportunity of asking the right questions only few dare to answer.
5. Regular Doctors Checkup
As you can see, the process is clear and the flow is shown in this article. What can provide you informed answer and decision begins in the acceptance that you need to regularly visit your doctor to be healthy in life. Make every visit to your doctor counts.
We understand tht HIV Testing in Cebu or any part of the country, is not a widely accepted norm.However, this should not hinder us from knowing how healthly we are.
Good thing, there will be a FREE HIV Testing event in Cebu on March 23, 2013 where you can ask your right question and get the right answers from specialists and experts on this field.
Titled “Check In Ta Bai”, venue and information will only be shared to those individuals who wish to undertake a FREE, DISCREET and CONFIDENTIAL HIV Testing in Cebu City.
Nestled east of Negros and west of Leyte and Bohol, this 225-kilometre long island is best known as the centre for commerce and trade in the Visayas, apart from being a leading initiator in other sectors like education, tourism, technology, and entertainment.
We are obviously talking about Cebu, a booming province south of the Philippines that is taking the spotlight in the “most attractive Phillipine locations” category. And it’s fantastic landscapes, impressive beaches, and iconic destinations are not just the reasons why “Sugbu”, colloquial name, is considered attractive. Its progressive industry and its thriving economy also makes it an ideal setting for businesses of all sorts.
If you need further convincing, here are more reasons…
Its tourism industry is gaining global recognition.
Malapascua, Bantayan, Camotes, Moalboal, Oslob―you’ve probably read of these destinations over the Internet, and it’s not hard to see why. These locations are famous for their expansive white sand beaches, impressive collections of coral reefs, and stunning cornucopia of marine life. Indeed, tourism in Cebu is only just testing its potential. In a few years, it will soon become one of the, if not THE, centre for beach-based tourism in the Philippines.
It is replete with strategic business locations.
If you’ve been to Cebu City, then you’ve most likely visited IT Park and Cebu Business Park already. These key areas are the main commercial locations of high-rise buildings for different sectors, be it publishing, marketing, BPO, finance, residential, etc. In fact, these have become pseudo-tourist attractions themselves, with sight-seers and other individuals chilling in pubs and catching up on the latest. From a business standpoint, you’ll definitely benefit from the 24-hour onslaught of different audiences from various locations.
Its finance industry is ever expanding.
Of course, as an investor and entrepreneur, your main concern is the stock market and the finance industry. Well, you’ll be happy to know that this sector is as stable as you want it to be, with a constant barrage of different investors, both foreign and local, gambling their hard-earned money on different fields. And obviously, the government is encouraging more developers to make themselves at home in Cebu.
Its consumer market is highly welcoming of amateurs.
What’s great about Cebuanos is that they are always craving for something “new”- a new experience, a new cuisine, a new adventure, a new location to see and enjoy. The audience is definitely not hard to attract, as long as you have an interesting business concept and you keep your service top notch.
These qualities are just a preview of Cebu’s best. Whether you invest as a retailer, real estate owner, financier, hotelier, restaurateur, etc., you will definitely reap the benefits of such a gamble in just a few months! Isn’t that something to look forward to?

One Pacific Residences of The Mactan Newtown. For more information call (63 999) 993-1990 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
PinoyWorld was invited to the launching of The Mactan Newtown — the premier township project of the country’s top real estate company Megaworld.
Just barely five months after its official launch, the first residential property at barangay Mactan, Lapulapu City just announced that it is 95% SOLD to prospect buyers and a new cluster will be launched and soon to be opened to the public.
WALL CLIMBING Area
According to our sources, the new cluster will be launched first quarter this year and will be the provided with top-notch amenities such as 20-meter-long pool, pocket gardens, rock climbing wall, an aqua gym and a yoga/taichi area. And the list wont end there. One Pacific Square is expected to flourish at the ground level and will house of chic and fab retail stores and boutiques.
Megaworld Cebu Properties Inc. President Noli Hernandez shares:
“We are bringing luxury and lifestyle convenience to new heights. One Pacific Residence will showcase the best of ‘Newtown’ living.”
It can be recalled that One Pacific Residence was publicly unveiled on August 2012. One Pacific Residence received positive response from Cebuano, including Lapu-lapu City Mayor Paz Radaza who was the Guest of Honor that night. In her previous speech, the dynamic Mayor of Lapu-lapu City exclaimed, ”
“Megaworld’s investment in Lapu-Lapu City is the bright beacon that will catapult the metropolis to become an economic force to reckon with.”
What to expect? What’s next?
One Pacific Square
The common question that comes up to cynics is, Will this property and township named The Mactan Newtown reach the projected success it hopes to have?
Looking at examples like Eastwood City, McKinley Hill and Newport City, these are all township projects initiated by Megaworld. Success after success in launching properties and township, they must have learned their craft well to introduce the ‘live-work-play’concept it had pioneered in the Philippines. It will not be for long when the 16-hectare township in barangay Mactan will also become another preferred locations of leading IT and BPO offices since new locators (which are not currently in Cebu) will also bring in more seats for Cebuano’s to occupy.
Mr. Hernandez adds in our interview during the launching of McDonald’s Mactan Newtown :
“There is more to watch out for in The Mactan Newtown. The launching of McDonald’s The Mactan Newtown is just the beginning.”
Upscale entertainment hotspots, five-star hotels and posh shopping spaces which are all soon-to-rise within the township.

The popular “yellow arches” brand is opening its stores in the Visayas in the past months. The most exciting of which is the opening of its newest and largest store in The Mactan Newtown in Lapulapu City, Cebu.
MacDonald’s at The Mactan Newtown is the first fast food tenant to open this year in The Mactan Newtown. This development follows the formal opening and launching of 8 Newtown Boulevard & One Pacific Residence.
If you’ve been to Eastwood City and had appreciated the ‘live-work-play’ concept of the township, The Mactan Newtown is also position the same. McDonalds also fits well in the concept and there’s no wonder why this fast food chain is opening its doors in Cebu’s newest lifestyle hub on January 7, 2012.
Imperial Palace Waterpark Resort and Spa Cebu is currently one of Cebu’s outstanding tourism landmarks. For more information, please call +63 32 494 5000.
With so many resorts lining up the stretch of Mactan Island in Cebu, Philippines, it can be quite difficult to choose where to go.
Mactan Island is blessed with a rich marine sanctuary, making it one of the top destinations in the country.
But white sand beach is never quite enough. Tourists will always look for a better experience under the sun.
A three-year-old luxury resort located in Barangay Maribago is worth a visit.
Imperial Palace Waterpark Resort and Spa offers a perfect blend of a grand accommodation and pure water fun.
It is just about 15 to 20 minutes drive away from the Mactan Cebu International Airport, which is one of the busiest airports in the Philippines. From the city, the resort can be reached in an hour or less.
Imperial Palace Cebu is the only five-star Waterpark Resort in the country — this spells the difference and is its edge over the other resorts.
No doubt, spending a day in the waterpark will be an exciting experience for anyone as it features some five themed pools aside from its main pool and slides.
The main pool called the Island Pool is an attraction with its swim-up bar. Swimming long hours will not be a worry as you can get refreshments anytime without getting out of the pool.
Wave Pool, one of its themed pools, gives the guests a feeling they took a dip on the beach with its scheduled waves.
The kids also get their share. Slides fit for them are in the Captain Hook’s Pool and Toddlers Pool.
The Beach Pool, on the other hand, affords guests an easy access to the beach area.
Completing the five themed pools is the Amazon River. It is a flowing river that can be enjoyed best with inflatable tubes.
If the pools are a bit too relaxing, the three slides can definitely wake up anyone else’s excitement and they will love the adrenalin rush.
Try the Open Body Slide first. It is the second largest slide at 120.42 meters in length and 7.37 meters in height.
Once used to the thrill that Open Body Slide provides, take it to the next level and jump in at the resort’s longest slide also called the Tube Slide. In length, that is 156.56 meters and 9.91 meters in height.
It feels quite dark inside the Tube Slide like one is traveling in a wormhole but definitely the surprise after conquering this action-filled adventure is priceless.
Going further, the third slide is not advisable for those who easily faint. The Space Bowl is 48.31 meters in length and 9.91 meters in height. The twist here is that after a steep slide, there is still that three times spin before getting flushed into a 6.4 feet deep pool.
After exhausting water activities, it is always a pleasure to end the day in a comfortable accommodation.
Tourists are sure to enjoy the spacious suites. The Palace has a total of 556 rooms. Plus, its villas are ideal for honeymooners.
Dining is also not a problem as the resort has seven restaurants including an international buffet served in its Familia Buffet Restaurant.
