Back in School Not as a Student...But as a Professor

In line with this year's celebration of World's Teachers Day, this blog post truly fits the celebration. Yes, I returned in school but not as a student. I'm already a professor!

Just this August 2018, I already accepted the offer in iAcademy, one of the prestige millennial university of technology here in Makati City to be an ICT (Information Communication Technology) part time professor. 

Yup me share with you two of my favorite selfies in the school's entrance where my outfit of the day fitted the color theme of the academe:



 As they say, I belong! :)

I'm teaching the SHS (Senior High School) students taking the courses of MMA (Multi Media Arts) and AN (Animator). They were graduating students already on Grade 12. 

The courses I'm handling and the students taking the course truly fit my personality. Just like me who is multi-talented and incline with many things such as blogging, running, and vlogging, we share the same passion. They were all artistic and have a passion to arts and Social Media. 

Okay, let me share with you another #selfie this time from the reception:


Wearing my personalized #TeamRR yellow polo shirt, it seems that I look more as a student and not as a professor. Agree?!

Being now as Professor Rocky Chua, iAcademy is now my third home (my first home definitely our own house and second my current company). Though part time in nature, teaching then is now my additional career.

Salute to all teachers out there! Happy Teachers Day to all of us! 10/06/2018 (Bits of Rocks)

10 Ways to Have an Extra Special Father’s Day

When it comes to gift giving and celebrations nothing can be more difficult than preparing for a surprise for Father’s Day.  After all, what else can you give to a person who has the means to thoughtfully provide for all of your family’s needs day in and day out? Of course there’s nothing wrong with giving the ubiquitous tie, money clip or wallet but if you really want your dad to have an extra special day, then it’s time to plan activities or presents that he will truly enjoy. 



1. Let him indulge in a little “me” time 

Dads have some of the busiest schedules. They juggle work and family time, and are left with almost zero time for themselves. This Father’s Day, deliberately give them a day off. Keep the kids preoccupied with tasks or playthings so dad can focus on things that will make him relax and enjoy like watching his favorite game or series, uninterrupted time online, or even a quick jog outdoors. 

2. Spend the day playing his favorite sport

Father’s love to share their interests with their family. Whether it’s a sport like running or football to restoring vintage cars or collecting vintage LPs, dads feel a special bond with their families when they have a shared interest. Spend the day on the field and talking shop and techniques so the entire family can improve their game. A visit to a sport shop afterwards is also a fun way to cap a tiring yet fulfilling game. Athletic dads who love football for instance, will enjoy a trip with the entire family to a specialty store like Nike Bootcamp where they can try on the latest football boots and cleats, or buy an extra pair of pro gloves and shin guards. To him, it will seem like outfitting an entire team.

3. Let him live out a dream

Let’s admit it, guys, father’s included, have a thing for driving. For dads who secretly dream of riding of into the sunset on a two-wheeled muscle machine, they can now live out their fantasy by enrolling in the Ducati Riding Experience (DRE). Drop by the Ducati shop at the Commercenter to book a class where they will be trained by Ducati Certified Instructors. Not only will they brush up on their motorcycle riding skills, dads will get a DRE kit, certificate, practical session, and of course hours of riding time on a Ducati motorcycle! Sweet! If you want to make your pop’s day even sweeter, get him an accessory or two which can serve as a memento.

4. Support his hobbies

If you’re father is more of a cyclist than a biker, a trip to Epic Cyle at the Commercenter might just be the highlight of your dad’s day. From performance footwear, helmets, handle bars and frames, the store has everything a hard core cycling enthusiast needs for a perfect ride. Be ready to while away some time as its easy to get enthralled with all that gear.

5. Give time to play with his “toys”

It wouldn’t be surprising if your dad spent considerable time tuning or jazzing up his car when he still had spare time in his hands. This Father’s Day let him spend time doing what he used to do over the weekends – taking care of his second “baby,” his car. To top it off, literally gift him with a new set of Bridgestone wheels like another set of passenger tires, new wet tires for the rainy season or a 4x4 set for off-road adventures.

6. Send him to boot camp

All father’s wear different hats. Some are even serious athletes or weekend warriors. These sporty dads now have a chance to up their game by joining a high performance sports program that can help them reach their full potential. Enroll your dad into a Sports or Performance Training Program at Focus Athletics to help him achieve his fitness goals faster. Or better yet, tag along and be his workout buddy so you can bond and encourage each other over drills and exercises.  

7. Encourage him to relax, refresh and recharge

For the dad who needs rest and relaxation, a chance to unwind at the Commercenter’s Centro Holistico might just be the thing. The wellness center offers acupuncture, IV Nutrient Therapy, detox, lymphatic dry brushing and other programs that can soothe the senses. 

8. Zone out with a little screen time

Who doesn’t enjoy a little screen time? With the Commercenter’s spacious and luxurious cinema, dads will surely be able to focus and lose themselves in whatever film they’re watching. 

9. Let him feast like a king

After a fun-filled and eventful father’s day weekend, treat dad to steak and more steak at the Black Pig. If he’s into burgers, he can dive into the pork belly sandwich which is just as satisfying. 

10. Cap off the day with a toast

To cap off the day, throw a toast to dad and tell him how much you appreciate him with a premium bottle of wine from Bacchus wines. If he’s more into hard drinks, give him a cognac or a whiskey to let him feel valued. 

Throwing a memorable Father’s Day celebration doesn’t have to be that difficult. As long as each activity is centered on your dad’s enjoyment and demonstrates how much you appreciate him, it will sure be a celebration that he will treasure throughout the years. Drop by the Comercenter in Alabang this Father’s Day weekend to show your dad how much you care. 06/18/2018 (Bits of Rocks)

5 Must Haves for a Perfect Beach Trip

With the temperature peaking at around 35 degrees Celsius daily, the warm weather in the Philippines beckons a trip to the nearest beach. 

While packing for the roadtrip, there are some items you need to put in your weekender bag to make the most out of your short respite from the heat. 


1. Smartphone for selfies 

Never leave for a trip without your smartphone! Well, that is unless you are trying to get off the grid. Your smartphone can be your ultimate travel buddythat will document your getaways, help you stay on track with its GPS feature, and more. If you are looking for a new smartphone, consider getting a Vivo V9.The latest flagship of the global smartphone brandis a knockout for taking selfies and photos. It has a 24-megapixel AI selfie camera and a 16MP+5MP dual rear camera for capturing your best beach moments.



2. Water bottle for hydration 

Lounging under the sun may give you a great tan, but remember to keep hydrated with a bottle of water at hand’s reach. Make sure you ditch the single use of plastic bottles by bringing your own bottle. KleanKanteen has a wide array of stainless steel water bottles including insulated ones to keep your drinks cold throughout the day. 



3. Beach blanket for convenience 

Lying on the beach with a book in hand is one of the best ways to kill time—until you stand up only to spend minutes trying to brush off sand from your skin or your mat!Lagubeach blankets can help you. Theseblankets repel sandto keep them on the beach. Plus, their unique linen blend is allergen-free with quick-dry properties.   



4. Swimwear for extreme activities

Although there are now a lot of shops that offer fashionable swimwear, make sure you stick to those that are made for the rough waves—especially if you are planning to try different beach and water sports like volleyball or surfing. Speedois a trusted brand by many athletes because of its high-quality swimwear and accessories. With the proper sizing, every Speedo swimwearhas a snug fit to keep you focused on the game. 



5. Sunblock for protection 

Your time at the beach can leave a mark—literall. While you can avoid the sunburn by staying indoors, you might miss out on all the fun. Instead, you may opt to wear rash guards and other protective accessories like wide-brimmed hats. You should also make sure you applysunblockbefore going out to the beach.Lightweight and water-resistant, the VMV Hypoallergenics’ Armada Sport 70may be a sound choice. It shields your skin from UVA and UVB rays to prevent sun-related problems. 05/28/2018 (Bits of Rocks)

How to Get a Perfect Family Car?




Sponsored Post.

Who among you loves car? What type of car do you like most? Well, count me in 'coz I'm one like you who are getting crazy over cars!

Since I love cars, I have prepare you some tips on how to get your perfect family car. Hope that these simple points can help you own one of the best cars you and your family are dreaming of.

First of all, know your interest! Usually your interest helps you to pick the best car you want to own. Are you into sports, shopping, or a person who loves bar hopping? For instance, if you're a sporty type of person, you will definitely pick a sports car. But if you are a person who loves shopping, you will choose a huge car that will definitely help you bring home the items you bought from the different groceries or shopping centers. But of course, you will also need to consider the interest of your other family members since this is a family car and you are sharing this one to your family. If you're to ask me, I prefer the 2019 Volvo XC40 since it's a huge one and can accommodate not only my shopping bags but brother and mother as well!      

Next is research more about the car. If you finally pinpointed the type of car that you want, search the internet and know more details about that said car. This will help you manage and maintain the car. At the same time, it will let you and your family adjust with the features offered by the car. 




The third one is canvass! Don't stick with only one vendor. Try to look for as many vendors as you can who are offering the best affordable price at the same time giving you the best service.This tip will also guide you to own a car when you are in a tight budget!

And finally, ask the opinion and review points from your family member. Again as I've said a while ago, you are not only the one using this car but you are sharing this with a family member. It's also important to hear their thoughts as well.

What more can you add? Hope that I helped you out in choosing the best car for you and your family. Enjoy! 03/30/2018 (Bits of Rocks)

5 Effortless Romantic Dinners You Can Make at Home

Sitting in traffic for hours so that you can wait in line to get into that crowded, noisy restaurant can be the ultimate buzzkill for any date. So this Valentine’s Day, why not ditch tradition and surprise your special someone with a homemade dinner?  

Even if you have minimal skills in the kitchen, there are some easy meals you can make that will knock the socks off your date. A simple search on the Internet will turn up a hundred of these recipe ideas, but we’ve picked out five of our favorites to share with you!



1. Pesto chicken pasta

Pasta is simple enough to make and pretty foolproof, but when topped with a zesty pesto and slices of perfectly pan-seared or grilled chicken breasts, it makes an impressive and filling dish. 

The trick is twofold: splurge on good-quality, artisan bottled pesto, and make sure that your chicken breast fillets are not dried out or (the horror) raw inside. If you’re unsure in the kitchen, better pick a fresh-chilled fillet instead of frozen to take the guesswork out of cooking time.

Serve with your sweetie’s favorite bottle of wine and some citrus fruits, and you’re golden.    




2. Whole Roast Chicken

The beauty of this recipe is that not only are there a dozen variants you can adapt to your tastes, but also that you don’t necessarily need an oven to make it. If you can borrow a pressure cooker for the big day, then you’re all set. 

Start with the best ingredients. You’ll want to choose a fresh-chilled whole chicken instead of a frozen bird for a couple of reasons: first, defrosting can be tricky for a novice cook. Second, freezing and defrosting can destroy the meat’s cellular structure, so fresh-chilled meat is the better choice for a juicy and flavorful finished product.

The basics: some type of oil to brush on the skin, salt and pepper to taste (remember to salt the inside of the bird too), and herbs for flavor. You can stuff your chicken with garlic, thyme, rosemary, and lemons, and place in an oven or pressure cooker that’s been preheated to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C) for 10-15 minutes. Reduce the temperature to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) and keep cooking for 20 minutes per pound. Serve with roasted veggies and enjoy!

3. Baked oysters

Who doesn’t love the occasional serving of this popular aphrodisiac? Baked oysters are simple to prepare, and to customize the meal, you have a slew of toppings to choose from. Anything from a simple drizzle of salt and lemon to a complex blend of herbs and cheese will work well. Serve atop a bed of coarse sea salt with a side of chilled leafy salad and either wine or their favorite Tequila for a hot evening. 



4. Steak and potatoes 

Here’s a secret: you can now get premium Wagyu cubes at select sites around the metro, and they make an exceptionally easy, sexy meal. Toss them onto a hot grill or griddle, cook until done to the degree of doneness that you like your beef – for Wagyu medium rare is recommended- and then serve them with an assortment of dips and sides such as grilled Portobello and shitake mushrooms, leafy greens, pickles, baby potatoes, or an assortment of cheeses. 

A meal that can be done in under an hour, all it takes is a wide enough table, enough bowls for all your sides and dips, cute skewers, and a partner who likes their meals interactive.


5. Hainanese Chicken

This recipe for Hainanese is a little bit of a cheat, and needs a little more attention than most of our suggestions, but it’s definitely worth it!

Stuff a fresh-chilled chicken with lemongrass, ginger, kinchay, a bouillon cube,  and a quartered onion. If it’s a particularly large fowl, lay it on a bed of the same in a pot that’s large enough to hold the entire chicken underwater. Fill the pot with enough water to cover the bird and its dressings, and put on the stove on high. Once it boils, turn the heat down to low and wait until the chicken is cooked and tender. 

While you wait, prepare the sauce. Chop up green onions and grate young ginger finely, add salt to taste, and either gently sauté in sesame oil or pour heated sesame oil over the mix. Add a scoop of broth from the chicken once it’s done cooking, set aside. 

When the chicken is done, carve and plate it. Before serving, heat some sesame oil, drizzle salt over the chicken skin, and then carefully drizzle the hot oil over the chicken as lightly and evenly as you can. Serve with the ginger and onion sauce and a bowl of steamed white rice. 

These recipes are just the tip of the iceberg! There’s a whole world of easy romantic dinners you can find with a simple online search, but to make it truly special, you need to remember the basics: use the absolute best ingredients you can get your hands on, pay attention to your plating, and make sure you give some thought to how you’re going to eat dinner – the right cutlery, the right stemware, the right drinks. 

Follow these three simple rules and you’re well on your way to having a Valentine’s Day dinner to remember! 02/13/2018 (Bits of Rocks)

Feel the Fight and Romance in the Highest Grossing Chinese Film "Never Say Die"



The Chinese New Year (CNY) is fast-approaching. And just like most of you, a Chinoy blogger and vlogger like me is preparing for this tradition. Yes, it is always my tradition here in my personal blog Bits of Rocks to celebrate the Chinese tradition with you via featuring Chinese-themed posts. On the previous years, I already featured Chinese horoscope, beliefs, holiday treats, and fun stuffs which definitely captured your attention.

This year, let's take the entertainment side (since entertainment is also one of my fortes). Have you already planned for a date with your love one watching a romcom Chinese movie?   

Before KPOP domination here in the Philippines, Chinese movies were considered crowd favorites in the foreign film entertainment scene especially with themes leaning toward romcom, action and supernatural.  Another instance was during the height of the Mexican telenovela in the country in the early 2000, Chinese series Meteor Garden starring F4 was such a big hit on Television.

Chinese movie followers or even those who crave for fresh films are in for a hilarious treat as the recent blockbuster top grosser in China and Hong Kong over the recent months will now be shown in the country. Never Say Die will leave you excited all throughout the film and will have you laughing your heart out as Ai Lun (Edison) and Ma Li (Xiao Xiao) bring you a mixture of all the elements you love in a Chinese film; Action, RomCom and Supernatural all in one movie. The film is the highest-grossing in China in 2017 with a whopping US$334 million recorded in the box office.

The Official Movie Poster of Never Say Die

Never Say Die surpassed the US$250 million earned by Jackie Chan’s film Kung Fu Yoga last year, to become the biggest single-territory grosser among all live-action comedies ever released.

Here is a one-minute trailer of the said film:



Never Say Die is a movie about a has-been Ultimate Fighting King (UFK) boxer who can’t seem to get a good fight and a celebrity Journalist who is caught it in a bad romance and how destiny allowed them to straighten their acts as they switch bodies and embark in a series of misadventures to fix their intertwined predicament.

This is such an interesting film bringing back the F4 and Meteor Garden feels! Agree?! 02/06/2018 (Bits of Rocks)

The Comfiest Pet Depot E-collar Cone for my Dog is Here!



My pet is quite notorious for aggravating further its wounds and injured areas. It’s quite frustrating for me but I think it’s instinctive for my dog to bite, scratch, and lick its injured body parts, thus causing more problems to its skin. It’s a good thing that my friend suggested me to avail the best solution which is the Elizabethan collar (e-collar), also known as the “cone of shame”. I’ve seen cone-wearing canines before, but more often than not, they typically run into walls and struggle to eat or do anything they want due to the plastic barrier. It impairs their peripheral vision, and not just that, the plastic material can rub against their skin and can cause painful rashes. Trust me, I don’t want that to happen to my dog, so I’ve tried to look for some alternative to keep my pet at ease during its healing process. 

I’ve tried sifting through the internet and found this cute Pet depot e-collar comfy cone from an online shop called Takatack.com. It immediately caught my attention because it’s not the ordinary e-collar I usually encounter as it’s made up of soft fabric and cushion. For me, it somewhat deviates from being tagged as the “cone of shame” due to its cute design, and I bet my dog would love it!

So, I finally tried this pet accessory on my dog and I like how it’s easy to put on since you can enclose it with double Velcro snaps. It seems to be much more comfortable than the usual plastic, plus the material didn’t cause rashes or irritation to the neck area of my furry little one. Aside from that, the size was just enough for my dog to move around. Indeed, it was a great alternative to the stiff plastic Elizabethan collars. My dog didn’t mind wearing it all day and night. And now, my dog is fully healed, thanks to this e-collar!

If you’re looking for an eye-catching e-collar that’s comfortable at the same time, I recommend you to check out Takatack.com. They have a variety of designs for collars and other pet accessories to keep your pets safe and protected. 01/22/2018 (Bits of Rocks)

Watch: Vivo's Touching Christmas Video


Christmas is a time of loving, giving, and sharing. Truly, this season touches our hearts specially when we do a good deed to others. The Filipino Christmas values this tradition.

To celebrate the holiday in true Filipino Christmas spirit, Vivo Philippines releases a special holiday video depicting a touching story of a widow, her children, and a husband and father they lost in a war.

The story revolved around a grieving wife and mother who tends to her small children on a Christmas eve when a group of carolers offered a rendition of ‘Silent Night’ outside their home. Laden with gifts and noche buena food, the carolers were then welcomed inside the home of the aggrieved family only for the former’s emotions to be stirred by a solitary portrait of the father of the home—a soldier who perished fighting for peace.

The Vivo special Christmas video is an instant hit amongst the family-oriented Filipinos, garnering 781,000 views, 4,212 shares and almost 41,000 likes within six days after its release on Vivo Philippines’ official Facebook page. Because of its theme centered on family, Christmas, togetherness, and gratitude, Vivo’s special Christmas video hits home for many Filipinos. The comments section abounds with emotional sentiments with messages of gratitude for the soldiers who fought to re-establish peace in Marawi. Some of the comments even expressed gratitude to Vivo for “giving [the audience] an avenue to thank the ones who enabled them to celebrate Christmas in peace.” “very meaningful and heartwarming! a tribute to all our soldiers and father! hats off to Vivo management for making this short film.”




Vivo, by way of the special Christmas video, shares and celebrates what a truly meaningful Christmas for Filipinos. Family, togetherness, empathy, and the spirit of giving make a Filipino Christmas like no one else in the world. 

Here is the said touching video:
