Tips on Bringing Your Child to a Baseball Game


If you drink and eat baseball, if you played baseball as a child, traded your baseball card collection with fellow hard-core baseball fans, and can recite stats about your favorite basketball players, then you would definitely want your children to love baseball as well.

Husay and Malasakit: The Unilab Way, The Filipino Way


My mind was used to analyzing financial statements, net worths and tax liabilities as I change my child’s  diaper.  I was used to typing spreadsheets as I breastfeed my son.  I was used to carrying my breast pump kit whenever I go on field. I was used to bringing my work home and staying up late at night, while doing the laundry.  My mind was constantly on work-overdrive.

I was a typical (very tired) working mom.


Until my mom got sick and passed away after a month.

That was when I had a bona fide epiphany.  I had a lightning-bolt moment.  I realized I was pushing myself too hard and missing out on a lot of things. Have I talked to my dad lately? Did I ask my daughter how her day was? Did I hug my hubby just because? Did I notice that my little boy has grown since last summer?

And I decided to…

…streamline my work.  I devised a system which made my work more organized making me not bring my work home anymore while still producing excellent results.  I was able to go to PTA meetings, join my children on field trips, and go on short vacations.  I began to bond with my dad, cherishing coffee and quiet afternoons as he talked about his childhood and how much he missed mom. He offered life hacks – useful advices which made me more “mahusay”  (expert/excellent) while being more caring and compassionate. 

In Rich Dad, Poor Dad, Robert Kiyosaki said,

“Whenever you feel ‘short’ or in ‘need’ of something, give what you want first and it will come back in buckets. That is true for money, a smile, love, friendship. I know it is often the last thing a person may want to do, but it has always worked for me. I just trust that the principle of reciprocity is true, and I give what I want.”

And I swear, that is the same advice my dad kept telling my brother and me when we were just kids.  He instilled in us love and excellence in everything we do as well as compassion and love for others.  

That wonderful bond was my strength when he was diagnosed with cancer.  His valiant fight and eventual defeat may have chipped a part of my heart, but his strength was the fuel for me to do my best at living life.  

His wonderful personality transcended to other people as I saw how doctors and medical personnel fought for him and how they cried when he was finally gone.  His compassionate spirit lived on as people I don’t know came to the funeral wake and told me how my dad helped them.

Having gone through my parents’ deaths somehow made me scared of growing old.  But now, as I reflect on what has happened and what may happen, I realized that you don’t get to your age without learning that there are no quick fixes or easy answers.  Now is the time for stretching my boundaries, shedding my skin, and reinventing my life.  I learned that as years pile up, I also grow in insight, energy, confidence and love – love not just for myself or my family but also for others.


And it is not just me or you who have grown in leaps and bound and insight because of an epiphany or a tragedy.  We, as a nation, have truly exemplified excellence and compassion (husay at malasakit), especially in times of calamities.

Unilab, the country’s biggest pharmaceutical company, believes in the power of husay (expertise) and malasakit (compassion).




Utmost care is given into every product they produce…


…reaching people who need them most.

Advances in technology may have changed and innovated their processes…


…but their  heart which is the very core of their existence is always present in their health care products. 

Unilab believes in the spirit of genuine concern, and as a healthcare company, that is what truly counts…


Husay and Malasakit, that is the Unilab way.

That is the Filipino way.
