Wear Stilettos

"Were you aware that by the age of 40, the padding on the balls of your feet starts to wear out? This fact makes it all the more difficult, and sometimes more painful to shimmy into a pair of sky high stilettos and walk down the street, or the red carpet, like you own it.

Injecting collagen and Restylane into the feet, to plump up the padding, has become a popular procedure among Hollywood divas who wouldn’t think of turning their backs on their Manolos. I found an article in USA Today, which dates back to 2004, entitled, “Podiatrists can plump you up for stilettos,” so clearly, this procedure isn’t new to the market.

Recent mentions of foot injections are at the news forefront in Los Angeles due to the Awards Season in Hollywood, wherein we will watch our favorite stars slip on towering, bejeweled shoes and wonder just how they manage to walk with such grace, without wincing, or crying, or throwing their shoe across the room after one hour.

According to the USA Today article, doctor’s opinions on the procedure differ. Susan Levine, a podiatric surgeon in Manhattan, has put the padding back in many celebrity feet and she explains that the results are great, and last between six to nine months. Edward Chairman, a podiatrist who has injected patient’s feet with their own fat, says the procedure doesn’t work, calls it a “gimmick” and says that foot surgery is what is needed.

Perhaps the bounce in celebrity steps is indeed from collagen injections. The beauty of it is, we may never know, as the soles of their feet won’t betray their secret, but the relaxed, pain free smile on their faces might."

Oh well, Hollywood is Hollywood is Hollywood.

Living with City Density

It is a must that we curb our population growth
Guesstimates peg that  Metro Manila's population has grown to almost 15million  today. In 1974 while doing my OJT at POPCOM, national rowth rate was 33% and Metro Manila's population at that time was 4 million.  Today it has bloated to almost 15 million after rate was said to have been  'reduced' to 32.1%. Not much improvement really.
Metro Manila population has grown alarmingly fast.  We all know what this means. Living and  health  conditions deteriorate.  Poverty becomes the order of the day. If there are more than 15,000 individuals on a mere square kilometer, you can imagine  pollution, over crowding, resources dwindling and then disease not to mention managing flood disasters in the magnitude of Ondoy and Pepeng. Poor social and economic conditions prevail if not worsen.
The Reproductive Health Bill has been approved.
