Tutuban Center Mall: Virtual Zoo opens its doors today!

Tutuban Center Mall: Virtual Zoo opens its doors today! 

 

Good
news to all mom and dad! A very unique attraction opened at Tutuban
Center today, October 26, 2012. Aptly called the Tutuban Center Virtual
Zoo. It captured not only the hearts and minds of kids but even the
kids-at-heart.

Minus the actual zoo animals,
the Tutuban Center Virtual Zoo will surely pack ‘em in as wide-eyed
visitors will truly marvel at the sights. The Tutuban Center Virtual Zoo
is a collage of larger-than-life 3D photos of all the familiar animals
in the animal world and then mounted on the blank walls of the cinema
lobby.

With these exciting animals in
various poses, the entire cinema lobby was beautifully transformed to
become a virtual theme park that would provide joy and thrills to every
visitor, what with every almost life-like image of animals, from
crocodiles to giant spiders, tigers, turtles, sharks, bats, elephants
and lions, greeting you at every corner of the virtual zoo.

However, these photos are not
just there for people to ogle at. To make it more fun and merry, each
wall is already an interactive photo booth by itself that is open to all
shoppers and moviegoers. This means everyone is free to pose with the
pictures of the animals however they want. You can pose as if the giant
croc is eating you, or probably lifting an enormous elephant on its
feet. The possibilities are endless, and every pose can only be limited
by your imagination. And what is good about Tutuban Virtual Zoo?
Admission is FREE!

To celebrate the opening of the
Tutuban Center Virtual Zoo, Tutuban Center management lined up today
several fun and sometimes heart-stopping activities to make today’s
opening truly memorable.

After the registration in the
morning, VIP guests and visitors witnessed the blessing and
ribbon-cutting ceremony that formally declared the virtual zoo open.
After this, everyone was invited to gamely pose with the photos of the
animals in their most wacky or even life-like poses as those with
cameras, including the media, clicked away to capture each fun moment.

Simultaneous to the opening
of the Tutuban Center Virtual Zoo, a separate activity was also held
starting at the Bonifacio Plaza where students from invited schools,
different kids’ groups, sponsors and the general public participated in
the parade the circled around the Prime Block and Centermall vicinity.
They were also treated to an entertaining mascot show and trivia games
that thrilled guests even more.

After a hearty snack time,
guests were provided with another round of entertaining and hilarious
treats like a magic show, mascot appearances and even special
appearances by cosplayers who delighted the crowd with their spectacular
and colourful costumes of different animé characters.

Finally, a “Parade of Nations”
courtesy of kids under the care of the Department of Social Welfare and
Development (DSWD) capped the day’s celebration, while for the entire
day, kids had fun with the face-painting activity done by face painting
artists, and the human statues who made guests and onlookers smile with
their antics.

 
Visit the Tutuban Center Virtual Zoo, now open at Tutuban Center from 10:00am up to 8:00pm and located along C.M. Recto Avenue in Manila.

SAINT PEDRO CALUNGSOD DOLLS: To Inspire children

After the canonization of the second Filipino Saint, St. Peter Calungsod, the Pedrito dolls are envisioned to inspire children to live saintly lives.

 

The Pedrito doll was designed with black hair, round black eyes, a flat
nose, and a pleasant expression. The doll is dressed in a simple white
long-sleeved shirt and brown pants, with a black bag and a palm leaf,
the symbol of Calungsod’s martyrdom.

 

The image of Saint Pedro Calungsod arrived Thursday afternoon from
Rome at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport, where it was greeted by a
small crowd of Catholic air travelers and airport employees.

BREAST CANCER AWARENESS MONTH: Evolife Team Up with Unilab

BREAST CANCER AWARENESS MONTH: Evolife Team Up with Unilab

Evolife products are formulated
for cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy and radiotherapy treatments. Alleviating the Side Effects of Cancer treatment.
With the growing
census of cancer incidence in the country, there is real concern in
providing supportive care not only during treatment but more so when
the treatment side effects start manifesting.
For cancer patients,
managing the side effects is as important as addressing the cancer
itself. According to doctors, side effects can compromise treatment
and even recovery. According to Dr.
Maria Luisa Abesamis-Tiambeng, M.D., head of the CSMC Cancer
Institute, M.D. “The psychological scars caused by the physical
manifestations of treatment, like rashes, skin discoloration,
blackened nails and falling hair erode patients’ self-esteem and
the will to fight. But psychological well-being is crucial to a
successful treatment. If cancer patients feel low and miserable,
their response to treatment is greatly affected. So if the side
effects of treatment do not bother the patient, their treatment
regimen becomes more tolerable, if not welcome. Products like Evolife
can help make patients commit to their treatment regimen and achieve
the ultimate cure. These innovative products can prove crucial in
licking the Big C.”
In a concerted effort
to alleviate the side effects of chemotherapy and radiotherapy, Point
of Care Solutions Inc. (PCSI)
 in
partnership with United
Laboratories
recently
introduced Evolife products to the Philippines.
 
PCSI is the exclusive distributor of
Evolife’s full range of cancer-support care products that treat the
cutaneous and cutaneous-mucuos side effects induced by chemotherapy
and radiotherapy. Evolife products are the result of years of
research and development by a dedicated team of dermatologists,
oncologists, and scientists based in France. Evolife Products contain
a unique blend of natural minerals that provide premium hydration and
protection for patients undergoing cancer treatment. They are the
first and only products of their kind that are effective, uniquely
designed with the needs of cancer patients in mind, and they are well
tested,” says oncologist J.F. Chanez in “The Neurogenic Component
of Cutaneous Toxicities Induced by Chemotherapy – New Solutions”,
European Oncology Journal, Vol 6:1, 28-30.
Michael S. Avelino. Managing Director of
Point of Care Solutions, Inc. said “As the company’s initial
offering, Evolife products deliver the company’s passion and
commitment to help cancer patients improve their quality of life.”
Evolife products underwent clinical trials
in the Philippines in 2011 and produced very positive results,
Avelino added.
Evolife products consist of skin care
products (EvoSkin Gel Cream and Evolife Hydrating Skin Cleanser which
provide a unique hydrating solution for skin side effects of cancer
therapy such as cracks, dryness and a burning sensation), oral care
products (EvoMucy mouthwash and spray for mouth sores, EvoLip for
chapped or sensitive lips, EvoDry mouth spray to combat mouth and
throat dryness and EvoDonto toothpaste for sensitive and irritated
gums), a scalp care product (EvoCapil hydrating hair spray that calms
the scalp and rejuvenates hair follicles to encourage hair
re-growth), a hygiene product (EvoDeo Deodorant Spray, an
alcolohol-free deodorant spray for hypersensitive skin controls hot
flashes and excessive sweating) and nail care products (EvoNail which
helps revitalize darkened, yellow, brittle or cracked nails and
restores them to their natural state).

Cancer patient, Tina, who underwent
chemotherapy and radiotherapy, experienced mouth sores and burning
sensations on her skin. “The mouth sores were too painful to eat
anything so I lost a lot of weight. After my doctor recommended
EvoMucy mouth wash the sores disappeared in 3 days for good.This
helped me regain my energy as I went through with my treatment. I
also used EvoSkin Gel Cream and EvoNail. After using it for a few
days, the burning sensation went away and my nails did not blacken at
all, unlike other patients undergoing treatment.”
This new product line will complement the
existing cancer treatment regimen being offered by Unilab and will
provide a wholistic supportive care program for cancer patients.

SULIT CLIQUE:Sulit.com.ph First Blogger’s Event at Spicy Fingers

SULIT CLIQUE: Sulit.com.ph First Blogger’s Event at Spicy Fingers

I was one of the bloggers who were invited by Sulit.com.ph to their first ever Blogger’s event held last October 24, 2012 at Spicy Finger’s in Greenbelt in Makati.

It was raining that day and I just came from two earlier events. Greenbelt is three hours away from home. That includes lining up at the MRT and walking from Ayala MRT station to Spicy Fingers for like twenty minutes, depending on how fast you walk. I don’t want to proceed anymore to the venue but I already confirmed my attendance to Ms. Rachelle so for the sake of mutual respect and word of honor I walk and walk until I reached Spicy Fingers. I then registered, and enter the venue.

I hardly ate because I was so full already from an earlier event that I attended. Next time round, I will reserve some space for the great food selected by Sulit.

 

Good thing, Sulit had a photo booth and everybody had fun posing. Each one of us lined up, pose and had our pictures taken. 

 

We also participated in a game, where we had to turn the tarpaulin around. Each group is consists of 5 members each. We called our group sulit. We did not win but we’re happy that boy kuripot’s team won. Even if we did not win anything, we felt happy because we get to play and had fun with other bloggers.

 

 Ano ang hanap mo? You can find everything at sulit.com.ph. That’s a fact.

 

My blogger friend Blanca won an Ipad during the raffle draw. I was misty eyed because I know that Blanca deserves the Ipad because her husband had just passed away and she hardly attend bloggers events since her husband had passed away.

We were also amazed by the story behind sulit.com.ph. The amazing couple Rj and Arianne David conceptualized their business inside Rj’s room when they were still bf-gf. They are now married and amazingly turned sulit.com.ph into a multi-million business. Filipinos are really talented. The founder of sulit deserves a commendation and I think they should write a book and I hope that the book will be taught at business school or even in high school. Because that way, they can inspire other people to never give up and go for  their dreams.

GARDENIA: Happy Bread Day!

GARDENIA: Happy Bread Day!

 
This is our daily Bread! My brother and I are Gardenia fanatics. We eat different Gardenia breads at home almost everyday. My favorite is the Gardenia Wheat Pandesal, my brother loves the Gardenia Wheat Bread.
 
We were luckily invited last Saturday, October 20, 2012 at Eastwood Mall to a fun-filled “Happy Bread Day” 2012 courtesy of Gardenia Philippines. It was a fun, fun Bread day!
We lined up first and registered for the Happy Bread Day event. 

 

Each of us were given a passport. After reading the mechanics of the Passport to the ultimate Bread experience we proceeded to the booths and had our passport stamped. One (1) booth is equivalent to one (1) stamp.

 
We got to taste test some Gardenia breads together with other product, like for example, a bite size of Bibbo hotdog pinned in a Gardenia Bread.

 The staff at the booth then stamped your passport. 

 
You get a souvenir / token after you visited the Gardenia Exhibit Booth and at least four (4) other booths.
 
I got a free eco bag.

 “Happy Bread Day Show” hosted by popular actress, host and dancer, Ms. Regine Tolentino.

There was also a special cooking demo featuring Chef Rosebud Benitez, former host of the well-loved cooking show “Quickfire,” together with actor and host Drew Arellano.

Gano Cordyceps : A health and energy booster for people on the go

Gano Cordyceps : A health and energy booster for people on the go

 

Trusted by athletes worldwide. Cordyceps , for people with an active lifestyle,may help enhance physical stamina and fight fatigue, promote healthy respiratory and lung function. It helps reduce bad cholesterol, blood sugar and increase good cholesterol. It may alleviate back and knee pains, and may have anti-aging value. It may also help alleviate sexual dysfunction in males.  

If your fast-paced
lifestyle, sports-filled days, frequent partying and/or tedious work demands
get you wondering where you’d get the next outburst of sustained energy, not to
mention, aid to health, you now have the answer. (Or in certain cases, if your
health condition prevents you from pursuing an active life, like some people
interviewed with liver or some specific ailments, you may now have the answer.)
A food supplement trusted by athletes worldwide, which occupies, in fact, a
long history in the tradition of the Olympics, is now in the country through
the trusted brand Gano Excel, distributed locally through Gano iTouch Phils. But Cordyceps is not only for the sporty and athletic
people, it’s also for those of you who off and on feel that your energy is
zapped but simply need to get going.

According
to the Gano Excel Founder, Sir Leow Soon Seng “Nutritious and
safe to take, Cordyceps is an all-natural, organic capsule made out of an edible mushroom species named Cordyceps, which is used
as herbal medicine. It is thus taken not only for energy and stamina, but also
for good health.”
“Traditionally called Cordyceps Sinensis, which widely known and used
in traditional Chinese medicine,it has been given names in both China and
Japan: the Chinese call it ‘DongChongXiaCao’or DCXC, while the Japanese refer
to it as ‘Tockukaso’, which means ‘winter-insect and summer-plant’.“
“It is
as old as the Qing Dynasty of the 1700s and has been written about by noted
Chinese scribes, as something made up of proteins, fibre, crude fats,
carbohydrates, cordycepin, cordycepic acid, polysaccharide, and different
vitamins, among others; it also increases oxygen utilization and enhances the
production of ATP—Adenosine triphosphate, which transports chemical energy within the cell for metabolism,” he adds.
Other Gano
Excel research findings about Cordyceps Sinensis: other bioactive components
are nucleotides, needed to produce RNA and DNA; ergosterol, which is an important
precursor of vitamin D2;amino acids which are protein building blocks; fatty
acids, both saturated and unsaturated, which help in lowering blood lipids and
protect from cardiovascular diseases; and metal elements, such as Zn, Mg, Mn,
which are good for the gonads and kidney. This is verified by the Journal of
Pharmacy and Pharmacology, which in 2008 stated that Cordyceps Sinensis has a
protective effect on organs. From the said journal, one can gather that it
deters liver fibrosis, hastens macrophage phagocytosis, and enhances the immune
function of organisms with its strong capacity to clear the virus.”
What’s more, Cordyceps
was found to boost the weak immune system and suppress overactive immune
reaction. This is according The Journal
of Leukocyte Biology Volume 85, June 2009. Several studies are available
to conclude that Cordycyeps may help enhance physical stamina and fight
fatigue, and may promote healthy respiratory and lung function. It helps reduce
bad cholesterol and blood sugar and increase good cholesterol. It may alleviate
back and knee pains, and may have anti-aging value. It may also help alleviate
sexual dysfunction in males.
Sir Leow adds, “There are
studies that indicate that Cordyceps has anticancer, anti-metastatic,
immuno-enhancing, and antioxidant effects. This is according to Gene Bruno of
the 2009 clinical trials MHS of Huntington College of Health Sciences, which
support the efficacy of Cordyceps especially on the liver, kidney and the
immune system.”
Bruno also made a
statement on how Cordyceps aids in endurance. He cites the testimonial of eight
female champion Chinese athletes, who vied in 1993 for a track distance event
in the Stuttgard World Championships who broke several
world records in 1993 in the Chinese National Games in Beijing and won a series
of medals at the German World Athletic Championships. The athletes said
in unison that they included Cordyceps in their diet along with intense
training and dedication. There are now even Filipinos who have tried Cordyceps
and will soon be giving testimonials on its efficacy.
