Dear Our Awesome Planet Friends,

Awesome Greetings!

First of all, thank you for all the awesome support for 11 years! Thanks for the honest feedback in the survey last year which greatly influenced my directions for OAP amidst the changing internet landscape :)

After a year, I would like to get feedback on how OAP met your expectation.

Here's the 5-question Annual OAP Survey 2016.

As I plan for the next decade of OAP, I want to make sure to incorporate as much feedback as possible on how to continue what's working, to correct what's not, and to understand your expectations for OAP for the years to come.

2016 is crucial for Our Awesome Planet as the Gen X generation turns 40+ and there's a passing of the baton to the next generation of Filipino Millennials. I'm discerning what to do next and your feedback and comments would be most helpful!

I read all the survey feedbacks (both positive and negative) and it directly influences my plans and directions for OAP.

AWESOME THANKS for caring enough to answer this survey - http://bit.ly/OAPSurvey2016 !


Live an Awesome Life,

P.S. It would mean a lot to me if you answer this annual OAP survey: http://bit.ly/OAPSurvey2016  It only would take 10 minutes to answer. Thank you!

@UrbanAshramYoga: Why FNR (Flexibility Not Required) Yoga is for Everyone (plus Nourish by Chef Guy)

FNR Yoga @UrbanAshramYoga

FNR or Flexibility Not Required yoga is a foundation class at URBAN ASHRAM MANILA meant for beginner or returning yogis who want to learn and practice yoga in the most progressive and safe way.


One of the biggest reasons why most people are afraid to try yoga is because they say they aren't flexible enough but in fact, improving your flexibility is one of the benefits of practicing it. FNR prepares the student to handle more complex yoga work by balancing strength and range of motion.

Here's our experience at Urban Ashram Manila's FNR yoga class...

#WeatherWiser: How Social Media is Changing Weather Disaster Response?

Weather Wiser

#WeatherWiser, is a social media training workshop for weather preparedness and disaster empowering bloggers and teachers from the Department of Education (DepEd) to create a #WeatherWiser mindset.

Every year, an average of 10-20 typhoons enter the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR). Annually, we also spend around Php 9-10 Billion on recovery initiatives. We need to change our approach to disasters and see a #ZeroCasualty result after every typhoon. But before achieving #ZeroCasualty, we need to build a #WeatherWiser Nation first.

The social media training is organized by WeatherPhilippines and Rappler in partnership with CitySavings and Cebu Pacific.

Here's what we learned in creating a #WeatherWiser nation...
