BrutaL WORDS CHRIS

RAYMUND HERNANDEZ

Through years of working out in different gyms I have seen many individuals spend hours in the gym, others are even proud to say that they had 2 or more hours in the gym. But does these long workouts exceeding 2 hours or more really effective? Or does it do more harm than good for your body? Modern studies show that a 45 to 60 minute workout is the most effective time needed for your body to develop and to not reach fatigue levels which would result to poor muscle recovery and development.

Here are some tips on how to keep your workout short but effective: 1. Bring a stop watch- having a timer during a workout is the best way to minimize rest by timing rest in between sets. 2. Focus on circuit training- circuit training has been proven to effectively burn fat and develop muscle. ( If you don't have an idea of what circuit training is, best example is in between your sets of bench press do 1020 crunches, or in between sets of squats do pullups.) the idea of this is you are targeting different body parts set after set, thus helpin reduce rests in between. 3. Avoid chatting- remember that you are in the gym to workout and not to hangout. That is why you don't need to bring your cell phone with you. And yes selfies are not allowed, stop wasting your time taking pictures

and posting how sweaty and tired you look. And just a reminder: no one really cares to see how pumped you are during your workouts. 4. Plan your fitness program- if you are not following any fitness program might as well have it planned and written before going to the gym. This will help you keep your workout short and fast and also keep track of your progress. 5. Sprint don't jog- if you are going to hit the cardio machine like the treadmill, stationary bike, elliptical or rower. Make sure that your pace is not a relaxed pace. Giving it your 80-85% maximum effort. How will you know that it is a maximum pace? If you cannot or you are not able to talk and have a conversation with the one beside you that is a good pace. Blasting to the cardio machine is a good way to burn fat in a shorter time needed.

Now that you know that shorter workouts are more effective than longer workouts, try this tips the next time you are in the gym. Always remember to keep your workout simple,short but brutal. Until the next issue. Focus on your health not just wealth.

3. Paghawi ng buhok - kapag ang lalake ay nag ayos ng buhok, dadaanan ng palad mula noo papunta sa likod. Pero kung ang lalake ay humahawi ng buhok paikot sa tenga, ihanda mo na ang pagpapakulot sa parlor.

ng salitang “GAY-DAR” ay hango sa dalawang salita, at hindi naman siguro kayo engot para hindi malaman kung ano yung dalawang salita na ‘yun.

1. Pagtili - kapag ang lalake ay nakita ang kanilang idolo, at napa-“tili” ng medyo parang inipit na mataas, medyo magduda kayo at baka mas malakas pa sa tili ng isang high school student na nakita ang one direction.

2. Pagtingin sa maduming kuko - walang

pakialam ang mga lalake kung madumi ang kuko nila dahil bahagi na ito ng image nila bilang isang “macho”, pero kung ang kakilala ninyo ay mahilig magpamanicure with matching palagay ng “kyutiks”, magtaka na kayo kung daliri lang ba ang kumukulot sa kanila.

4. Pagrelax

-ang lalake kapag nagrerelax ay wala ng kyeme, sasalampak sa kama o sofa at mamamahinga. Pero kapag pumwesto na parang si Cleopatra, goodluck kung makatulog ang mga fafa.

C F 2ND ANNIVERSARY

Sa panahon ngayon, karamihan pa rin sa atin ay hindi marunong kumilatis kung ang isang lalake ay tunay nga ba, o peke. Mahirap na rin kasi ma-determine dahil ang pagiging metrosexual ng mga lalake ay kadalasang napagkakamalang “bading”. Alam ba ninyo na ang ratio ng lalake sa babae ay 2:1 at yung 30% ng lalake sa ratio na yun ay masasabi nating, hindi tiyak ang saloobin kung sasanib ba sa federasyon o di kaya ay nagkakaroon lang ng “phase” sa kanilang buhay. Wala akong gustong patamaan sa mga sasabihin ko, ang mga isusulat ko dito ay pawang obserbasyon ko lamang, at kung may reklamo kayo, sa baranggay na lang kayo magpaliwanag. Paano nga ba malalaman kung ang boyfriend, kapatid, tiyuhin, tropang lalake, mamang tricycle driver na napapatili sa kalendaryo ni Dingdong Dantes na walang saplot pangitaas, mamang magbabalot na kasing taas ni Mariah Carey ang boses kapag nasigaw ng kanyang paninda at kung sinosino pang mga “paminta”, ay kasapi sa organisasyon ng mga pusong mamon, hayaan ninyo sabihin ko sa inyo ang mga obserbasyon ko.

5. Tindig - ang mga lalake ay matikas kung

tumindig, kahit banggain mo ay hindi matitinig, pero kung nakatayo ito na daig pa ang pagtayo ni Pilita Corales sa kanyang concert, matakot ka.

6. Pag-inom - malakas tumoma

ang mga lalake at hindi maikakaila na lasenggero ito, pero mag-isip ka kung laging inoorder eh yung mga mixed drinks at gumagamit ng straw kapag umiinom. Mas mag duda ka kapag yung hinliliit niya ay nakaturo, alam na! Marami pang pwede mapuna sa mga kalalakihang nagpapanggap, pero kung tutuusin, tanggap na naman ang mga tulad nila. Huwag natin silang husgahan dahil lahat tayo ay pantay-pantay, kaya tandaan na hindi sa panglabas na anyo nasusukat ang pagiging isang tao, kundi sa kanilang pakikisalamuha sa kapwa tao. At kung ano man ang sinabi ko ngayon, dedmahin na lang ninyo dahil.. WALANG BASAGAN NG TRIP! VOLUME 3 NO.22

rincess Xyrene Chua is 19 years of age, a mix of Filipino, Chinese, Spanish and Japanese it's no wonder you get a little bit of everything with this girl. As busy as she is working as a model for photography workshops, magazine, car shows and other events, Princess is also in her fourth year as a Computer Engineering student. Princess enjoys working as a model, she says one of the perks is getting to travel to different locations for shoots, meeting new people and learn a thing or two about photography as well. She loves reading, most specially when it comes to romantic novels. A self proclaimed “Selfie Princess” she makes a habit of taking at least one selfie a day.. and that is just the minimum! She grew up to be strong-willed and thinks that she can achieve her goals in life whether it be big or small. Despite being “tomboyish” and somewhat of a “man-hater” like any other girl, Princess still believes that there is someone out there for her, the ideal man meant to be her Prince..

HITACHI SEASIDE PARK

CLUB FILIPINA

VOLUME 3 NO.22

etween summer and autumn, there is a must-see place in Japan that everyone must see. The Hitachi Seaside Park is often listed as one of the most surreal places to visit. Though seasonal flowers are being showcased throughout the year, mid-April to mid-May and end of September to mid-October are considered perfect time to visit. Nemophila or baby-blue eyes turns the park into a blue mountain in April / May and kochia bushes turn it to a blushing hill in October. It must be noted that Kochia or fire bushes are quite selfish as they turn green just after two weeks of being red. My friend had planned it months ago since it was expected that the travel tours will be sold-out very quickly. We decided to join a photography group bus tour since it gave a longer “shooting”


time to participants compared to regular bus tours. However, there was a big problem unforeseen. A super typhoon was coming to Japan exactly the same date of our trip. Should we cancel it or not? After lots of discussion, complaints included, we decided to give it a go. The bus was relatively unfilled and much to our surprise, the park was almost empty too. Because of its popularity, I never thought we will find it less crowded. Aside from the kochia bushes, cosmos are also in full bloom as shown on the above photo but still it was the former that steal everyone’s attention. Surreal and overwhelming. It felt like being in a fantasy world but it’s not. You are in a REAL world. And once you realize it was real, you allow yourself to get lost in the labyrinth. No one was exempted, be it the photographers and or the sightseers. Maybe because of excitement, some were confused and in panic mode on what to use in

capturing the scenery – a mobile phone camera or a DSLR. As I mentioned earlier, the park was empty and it was very easy to appreciate its magnificence despite of the rain. Consider it as a case of sweet lemoning. No one cared for the rain. No one seems interested in viewing the bushes closely as it is more appealing when viewed at some considerable distance. I was curious on how it looks like and since I was armed with macro lens, I took couple of shots of what’s inside the bushes and it’s another world. A visual haiku. This was my second visit. Last May 2014, I was here with my friends too. No matter what flowers are being showcased, a single tree will try to get your attention and everyone called it as The Lonely Tree. I wonder if it is really lonely considering the blooms surrounding it? I think I might go back again this winter to check how lonely this tree will become when the field is filled with snow.

ne can describe this lady as the “Triumvirate” or call her the “Kate of All Trades” because Kate Aguilar is the complete package! Having started off as a hair and makeup artist, she was able to express her emotions and artistic side through her model’s makeup. It wasn’t too long though that most photographers and designers noticed Kate’s beauty and gorgeous body that they started asking her to pose on the side and eventually asked her to be the main model. Most of the time Kate would do her own makeup, she also knew how to pose being in several shoots behind the photographer and monitors Kate knew what worked and what did not. Now, this gorgeous makeup artist turned model is now embarking on a new journey one that is behind the lens as a photographer. Kate says: “Art is my passion, I live and breathe through expressing it in many ways I can… I sing from my heart and soul the same way when i do makeup, model or photograph” She knows she has a long way to go in photography but one can’t deny that she surely has the odds on her favor - being able to run a whole shoot as a one woman army is no joke and most photographers would give up their most expensive lens for makeup knowledge. Kate believes that “the best thing in this world is to have the job you love to do, life is too short to stay unhappy” so she is going out for her dream and making it a reality.

あなたも税金の還付申請対象者!! 知らない人と差がつく! 得する税金!? 日本に住むフィリピン人、又は配偶者がフィリピン人の日本人は 約97%の方々に税金還付のチャンスが有るのを知っていますか!?

皆さんは日本に住む外国人も日本人と同じように所得税と住民税の還付申請ができるという話をご存知ですか? 日本で働き日本の所得税と住民税を納めていて母国の家族や親戚に援助を行っていれば、一定の条件のもとその行為が 「扶養」 と認められ、税法上の優遇すなわち 「扶養控除」 の適用を 受けることができるのです。最長で所得税・住民税それぞれ5年分の納め過ぎた税金が還付されるということです。 では実際どのくらいの税金が還付されるのでしょうか?還付される金額はあくまで支払った税金の範囲内で、 それ以上になることはありません。 しかしこれまで支払った税金の合計は意 外と多額で還付予想額を算出すると皆さん非常に驚かれます。 この制度適用は外国人のみならず、外国人を配偶者(フィリピン人等) にもつ日本人も配偶者の家族を扶養していれば適用されます。外国人と結婚した時点で配偶者の母国に住む配偶 者の家族・親族も法的な 「家族」 となるのです。 もちろん経済的な援助をすることで 「扶養」 となるわけですから、 これを証明することが必要となります。 還付申請を行う上で重要な注意点がありますので説明いたします。   *日本人が申請する場合、扶養親族と認められるのは外国人配偶者の3親等以内の親族。 外国人が申請する場合、 自分自身の6親等以内。  * 「扶養」 とは扶養親族に経済的に援助(金銭・物品) していること。 またそのことを証明する書類を提出できること。 一般的な質問事項<<Q & A>> Q: どれくらい還付されるの? A: 還付金は、 申告者により異なります 還付の可能性と還付概算額等は、 申請時に個々の書類を確認後に判明します。 Q: 還付されるまでの期間はどれくらい? A: 還付金額同様申告者の扶養状況により異なります。 最短で約2~3カ月、最長で約1年から1年半程かかる方も中にはいます。 Q: 手数料はどの位? A: 申告者により異なりますが、基本的には還付金額に対しての20~25%   (グループ割引、 リピーター割引あり) Q: ビザを持っていませんが、 申告は可能? A: 超過滞在者(オーバーステイ) でも申告は可能ですが、 申告には必ず外国人登録されていることが必須となります。

Naoji Kitaoka, President & CEO

Q: 母国へ帰国する場合でも還付申告は可能ですか? A: 納税管理人や代理人を立てれば申告は可能です。 Q: フィリピン人で現在は帰化して日本国籍ですが、 申告は可能ですか? A: 帰化しても、家族が母国に在住し、扶養していれば可能です。 Q: 還付申告はフィリピン国籍ではなく他の国籍でも可能ですか? A: 申告の条件を満たしていれば可能です。 Q: パートタイムで働いていても、還付申告は可能ですか? A: 納めた税金が有れば可能です。 未払いが有る場合は、還付申告により充当されます。

Philippine Staff of PG&Co. ready to help you

PG& Co. multi-cultural staff ready to assist you in any language.

Q: 日本で10年程働き、税金を納めていますが、全て申告すれば還付されますか? A: 所得税、住民税共に最長で過去5年となります。 5年以上の税金は還付対象外です。 実際に還付申請を行うためには、税務署・市区町村との対応・各種証明行為・言葉の違い等様々な問題が生じます。 自分自身で還付申告をすると、手続きが面倒、税務署へ何度も足を 運ぶのは困難、 また様々な難題、追加書類を納税者に依頼し、 スムーズに還付処理がされないケースが多い。 また還付されても、本来還付される金額の一部分しか受け取れないといっ たケースもあります。株式会社パシフィック・ギャランティは長年の経験と豊富な知識とを持ち、信頼できる税理士とともに皆様の正当な権利を行使するお手伝いをいたします。 還付の可能性 の有無、還付予定額、 また委託手数料率を予め申請者に通知し、 申請者は、 内容を確認した上で還付申告をするか否かの判断が可能となります。 ここまでは、無料で対応しています。  株式会社パシフィック・ギャランティとの手続き、連絡手段は主に電話、 Eメール、書類の郵送で行われます。 東京のみならず、 日本各地から還付申告の依頼にフィリピン人、 日本人ス タッフ等が丁寧に対応しています。 この機会にまずは電話相談をしてみると良いでしょう。
