Bike Bandit: Safe Ride with Style

Nowadays, one of the easiest mode of transportation is riding a motorcycle. But according to the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), in 2006, 13.10 cars out of 100,000 ended up in fatal crashes. The rate for motorcycles is 72.34 per 100,000 registered motorcycles (excerpt from Wikipedia).

Good thing, we can avoid this kind of accidents by being extra careful when travelling. Me and my husband are motorcycle riders too that's why I was so happy to find a one stop shop for all our motorcycle needs online. Bike Bandit was founded in 1999. Since then, they bring powersports parts and accessories that is readily available online.

I was browsing their shop the other day, because I was looking for an All Season Motorcycle Jackets for my husband since you can't ride your motorcycle in the city unless you are wearing one. And I was able to find this:

This one's for $370 dollars and it's available in different sizes. And what's good about Bike Bandit is that they offer free shipping.

And how can i forget about myself? I also looked for Ladies Motorcycle Jacket that matches my husband's leather jacket. It was a struggle looking for one because there are many choices, but after contemplating, I have decided to get this one:

This Cortech Women's Bella Leather Motorcycle Jacket is a good catch for only $274.99 and is available in Vintage Brown. 
I also browsed their wide array of Motorcycle helmets for women, and boy! there's a lot of designs to choose from! 

I will definitely recommend Bike Bandit to my family and friends. With Bike Bandit, your can Ride Safely with Style. :)

SBMA at 25: Celebrating the Past, Forging the Nation's Future

One sunny Thursday morning, I got my trusted travel bag and went to an adventure with one of my besties, Jocelyn.

Our destination: Subic!

I am very privileged to witness the historical 25th year anniversary of Subic Bay.
SBMA is not new to me because it is our quick escape when we want to unwind. I can clearly recall back when I was a kid, I always hear "Subic" from my family because of my uncle who was a US Navy then.

We arrived at Harbor Point at around 10am of November 23 and we met Mary Elizabeth and her friend. We were fetched by Sir Dante who is our contact person from SBMA's Media Center. He brought us to our home for 3 days, Buena Casa Hotel Subic.

The highlight of this trip is the celebration of SBMA's 25th anniversary that was held on the 24th day of November 2017 at the historical building 229 of SBMA.

We were able to witness the awarding ceremony for the pioneer investors of SBMA and also the giving out of pins to SBMA employees. My CAT and ROTC days were relieved because of the marching band and the honorary drill, followed by the unveiling of the golden plaque in front of Bldg 229.

With happy faces, SBMA people cheered for a very iconic lady who is full of charisma. Parang lahat ng tao ay kilala niya. Then she was introduced as the Chairwoman and Administrator of SBMA,
Atty. Wilma T. Eisma. After a very inspiring speech by Atty Eisma, an exciting surprise is coming..
Ito talaga yung pinakaaabangan ko: the Confetti drop, the water canon and the exhilarating Aerial Exhibition led by the Philippine Airforce.

After the surprises, volunteers gave their testimonials about the historical event that happened 25 years ago. It is so heartwarming because these people are very passionate with camaraderie and volunteerism.

Later in the afternoon, we headed to Harbor Point to witness the opening of the photo exhibit and memorabilia from the past 25 years of SBMA. We came just in time for Secretary Dick Gordon's speech.

And after that event, another highlight nanaman, The float and foot parade na inaabanan.. because of their special guest Mr. Daniel Matsunaga. Biglang naging fan girls ang mga kasama ko. haha

These 3 days that I got to spend with total strangers before but now friends is one for the books.
I really enjoyed the event and company of new friends.

Again, Congratulations and Long Live: SBMA!!

Disclaimer/Note: Supposedly this article is to go live few days after the event, but unfortunately, my domain and my site had a problem that tech support have to fix it for few weeks. I deeply apologize for the inconvenience and specially to Ms. Divine Reyes and Sir Dante. Thank you po.
