Gifted kids shine bright in Promil Four’s i-Shine 7 Celebrate the Gift Recital

Over 270 Promil Four i-Shine 7 talent camp i-Shiner graduates took the stage to shine bright, wowing the audience with amazing creations and inspiring performances during Promil Four’s i-Shine 7 Celebrate the Gift Recital at SMX Aura.

Ever-supportive parents, relatives, mentors, and other kids filled the SMX Aura Convention Center with cheers and applause as they witnessed future artists, dancers, musicians, ballerinas, and actors conquer the stage. Seasoned actress Dimples Romana, who has been hosting Promil Four’s i-Shine ever since its beginning in 2009, once again  had the honor of hosting the recital.

To begin the celebration, members of the Art Camp, under the mentorship of Teacher Robert Alejandro of Papemelroti and Teacher Kara of Masterpiece Movement, cultivated the value of Imagination through creative exploration and self-expression as they showcased a lovely mural & tunnel that they worked on during their workshop.

Next, participants of the Dance Camp, mentored by G-Force choreographers and guided by Teacher Georcelle Dapat-Sy, brought the house down with both beginner and intermediate hip-hop moves. Through sequences of steps, rhythmic patterns, thumping beats, and awesome formations, each Promil Four i-Shiner explored and found a passion for dance. The value of Teamwork was incorporated as an important part of their learning during their workshops, allowing them to work together while also expressing individuality in their performance.

Meanwhile, the little ballerinas melted the audience’s hearts because of their frilly tutus and satin ballet shoes. Personally taught and led by Prima Ballerina Lisa Macuja-Elizalde of Ballet Manila, the little ballerinas demonstrated poise and grace with their smooth and delicate movements. With the help of Promil Four i-Shine7 Ballet Camp, the little girls learned the value of discipline that they will take with them beyond the workshop.

Next, the Theatre Camp i-Shiners showed off their confident, gregarious, and versatile selves on stage. One of the Promil Four Theater camp i-Shiners’ performances was the popular fable “The Boy Who Cried Wolf,” directed by Coaches from Trumpets Playshop. Through imagination and creativity, as well as embracing the arts in all its forms, the Theatre Camp took a step closer towards creating well-rounded, confident, and versatile kids.

 

Members of the Music Camp showcased their gift through a lively performance of voices and instruments in perfect harmony, guided by National Artist, Maestro Ryan Cayabyab. While the kids learned new musical lessons, they were also imparted with improved skills, confidence, and an increased awareness of the learning and leadership needed to thrive in life.

 

Promil Four’s i-Shine 7 Camps ran from April to May 2019.  This year’s camp locations expanded beyond Metro Manila with the addition of Batangas, Cebu, and Davao. Promil Four, as part of its commitment, continues to encourage parents to nurture their children’s gifts, not only with expert guidance, but also with proper nutrition.

Beko Philippines’ Mother’s Day Out

Beko, the Official Partner of the Everyday, honors the hard work, compassion, and dedication of mothers towards their families through fun activities during its “Mother’s Day Out” event at the Activity Center of Robinsons Magnolia in Quezon City, from May 10 to 12.

Mothers joining the three-day program would experience free make-up sessions and tutorials, cooking demos, food tasting, coffee and pastries, as well as special prizes for participating in a contest, which would ask them to take a video of themselves explaining the value of having longer “me” time.

To promote the importance of personal time, the program also showcases Beko home appliances’ advanced technologies designed to assist mothers by optimizing time spent on house duties. By cutting the hours spent on dealing with everyday challenges, moms can focus on more important things, like having time for themselves or spending more quality bonding time with their family and loved ones.

Beko’s innovative features, carried by their washers, refrigerators, and ovens, not only offer solutions that boost productivity and efficiency but also, pays tribute to the incomparable qualities of mothers.

Washers

Some mothers prefer hand washing their clothes than rely on washers during laundry days – which most often fall on weekends. However, the hours spent on individual treatment of clothes cost too much time and energy.

This is the reason why Beko innovated technologies in their washers that can closely match a mother’s perseverance and dedication to tackle a large pile of laundries quickly, while still providing comfort.

Mothers can diminish the time it takes to finish a week’s worth of dirty clothes by properly sorting it and washing it with Beko Frontload Washers. It has “Xpress Super Short” a 14-minute cycle that is suitable for lightly soiled small load of laundry up to 2kg. With a full load of laundry, “Daily Express” will finish the job in just 28 minutes cycle at 30⁰C; while the “GentleCare 20⁰™” copies the tender hands of a mother to lightly yet effectively wash delicate clothes; all of this special wash programs and more in just one machine.

Refrigerators

Meanwhile, the technologies of Beko refrigerators manage the right conditions to maintain the qualities of fresh food for longer period, similar to how a mother upholds the sanctuary of her household.

Beko’s “Everfresh+®” in their refrigerators’ special crisper compartment preserves the storage life of fruits and vegetables by controlling the precise humidity, reducing condensation and minimizing temperature variations inside so fruit and vegetables stay crisp and fresher up to 30days; while “Active Fresh Blue Light technologies protects the Vitamin C intensity keeping its natural flavor and nutrition intact.  It is almost like having a greenhouse inside the fridge which continues the process of photosynthesis on fruit and vegetables which preserves it 30% better compared to a standard crisper.

The refrigerator also has the benefit of “NeoFrost Dual Cooling System” that ensures even cooling inside the fridge compartment and no air transfers between fridge and freezer compartments, thus prevents cross contamination of food causing spoilage and foul odor.

Increasing the storage time of fresh produce giving them the freedom to store more to lessens the frequency of their travel to fresh market.  This also releases them from pressure of immediately using all the available ingredients for dishes. This way, mothers can enjoy using their natural culinary creativity to spin new versions of favorite dishes.

Ovens

Mothers can look forward to an exciting cooking appliance that Beko would soon be launching in the Philippines in the coming months.  This will help save their time spent in cooking and give them more “me” time.

With its technology, “Split and Cook,” the ovens mimic the multitasking capabilities of mothers by providing more spaces to cook two different meals with different temperature needs and durations at the same time in one single cavity oven. This Free Standing Cooker’s top stove uses gas while the bottom oven is electric, with two fans at the back to provide accurate cooking results.

While multiple dishes are being cooked at the same time, moms can find time to chat with other family members about daily matters. Once their signature recipes are done and about to be served, the conversations can continue into the right atmosphere for family dialogue – the kitchen table.

Beko acknowledges the different roles mothers provide to their families, acting as the light of Filipino home, the gentle manager, the provider of healthy and delicious meals, and the director of proper compartmentalizing. As the Official Partner of The Everyday, Beko has installed features to partner with mothers to complete everyday household responsibilities, so that they may have longer meaningful time for themselves and their loved ones.

Gurhan Gunal Regional Sales Director of Beko Asia Pacific is set to grace the event and will address the audience with his opening remarks. Also present are Dyeun Zapanta, Assistant General Manager together with Cecil Placia, Marketing Manager of Beko Philippines.

“Filipino moms deserve a day out and we at Beko, aim to deliver that. Aside from the fun activities of the program, we would also be introducing our technologies to mothers so that they may have the better option of owning intelligent appliances in washing, cooking, and storing,” said Dyeun. “We believe that missing out on valuable family moments to tackle everyday challenges at home is to waste away precious memories. That is why we developed these features to assist them in managing personal time and chores.”

“This is also the perfect time to buy a special gift for mom as a Special Mother’s Day promotion can be availed from May 10 to 12, 2019.  Hurry and visit your nearest Robinsons Appliances branch and inquire about this limited offer,” Cecil added.

Pampers Launches the #BetterForBaby Advocacy to Support Unhindered Movement and Development

Pampers and celebrity mom, Sarah Lahbati, hosted over 100 moms to launch their new nationwide advocacy called Pampers #BetterforBaby Movement. The advocacy is a call-to-action for everyone in the Philippines to help give babies a world of unhindered play and movement, so they are free to learn and explore the world. This starts with helping babies to move comfortably by wearing less lawlaw diapers like Pampers.

During the event, Sarah shared why she partnered with Pampers: “I’m so excited to launch the #BetterforBaby campaign with Pampers. I’ve learned that the more our babies play and move, the more it helps them develop their skills. We need to pay close attention to the small yet critical things that can help them move better, such as the right diaper. I chose Pampers for Zion, and even now with Kai.  I know they are able to move better and with greater ease because Pampers is less lawlaw compared to other brands.”

Pampers invited a panel of experts to talk more about the importance of movement for baby’s development, and the many ways families can help.  This means giving babies plenty of time to play, advocating for more galaw-friendly public spaces, and ensuring babies move comfortably in a less lawlaw diaper.

Ms. Bambi Borneo, President of Mother and Child Nursing Association of the Philippines (MCNAP) shares, “2-3 hours of playtime and exercise for babies during the day will not only help them develop physically, but cognitively as well. It’s important for babies to move comfortably without much bulk hindering their movement. So, a good diaper na less lawlaw is very important.”

As part of the launch, Pampers unveiled the PampersLessLawlaw.com microsite where everyone who wants to show support for the advocacy can share the badge, and share stories of how they are making life #BetterForBaby. These all add up to points in the microsite, and for 10,000 points and more, Pampers will be donating newborn kits and galaw-friendly play areas to hospitals across the Philippines. Reaching 30,000 points will enable Pampers to donate to 5 chosen hospitals across the Philippines. Those who join can also get a chance to win up to 3 months’ supply of Pampers.

Everyone at the event was very excited to be a part of the #BetterForBaby Movement and sign up on the site. Ms. Ragene Palma, Urban Planner and one of the panelists of the event, shares, “Thanks to Pampers #BetterforBaby, we can raise awareness of how important movement is for a baby’s overall development. We can create more galaw-friendly spaces in more communities which is crucial in aiding in the development of babies.”

There are many ways that the general public can support this advocacy:

  1. Watch this online video and share it via social media:  https://youtu.be/7urGe3tr1_I
  2. Share the Pampers #BetterForBaby badge here to show support for the movement: www.pamperslesslawlaw.ph
  3. Share a personal story on the site, or how you have used less lawlaw diapers for your baby

While each baby moves and learns at their own pace, it is everyone’s job to make sure we let each baby be free to move as freely as they please.  Through the #BetterforBaby movement and through advocating for less lawlaw diapers, Pampers and Sarah hopes everyone can do their part to make life better for baby.

An Active, Energized Summer with MILO: Get Your Child into Sports!

Annual summer clinic strengthens commitment in nutrition and sports for child development

 

There’s still time to make the most out of your child’s summer break with the second wave of the MILO Summer Sports Clinics this May until June. With its unwavering commitment to provide the nutritious energy to get more children into sports, MILO’s yearly program continues to offer a wide array of exciting sports activities that kids can participate in throughout the summer.

As part of the longstanding “Get Your Child into Sports” advocacy, the MILO Summer Sports Clinics aims to reinforce the importance of sports in a child’s holistic development. Children today are faced with numerous barriers that hinder them from engaging into sports such as digital distractions, lack of safe play places, and fear of trying. MILO’s annual summer program seeks to address these challenges by highlighting sports as a means not only to get kids active, but also to teach valuable life lessons one can learn outside the classroom.

Energizing More Children

This year, MILO makes the Summer Sports Clinics accessible to more aspiring young athletes as they continue their expansion in the Visayas and Mindanao region. The clinics started nationwide last end-March and continues this May until June, in over 700 venues to more than 30,000 children nationwide.

Arnis, Ultimate Frisbee, and Wushu are this year’s newest additions to the program’s sports offerings. Apart from those sports, the MILO Summer Sports Clinics will continue to provide training to different sports disciplines, namely Badminton, Basketball, Chess, Fencing, Football, Futsal, Golf, Gymnastics, Karatedo, Lawn Tennis, Parkour, Swimming, Table Tennis, Taekwondo, Touch Rugby, and Volleyball.

MILO 009

To further enhance the summer clinic experience of the participants, select clinic organizers will offer a MILO Welcome Kit that contains an exclusive Summer Sports Clinics drawstring bag and MILO to ensure the participants will get their Champion Energy Nutrients when they embark on their summer courses.

“MILO contains Champion Energy Nutrients such as milk, Protomalt, B-Vitamins, and Iron to help children get active especially in sports,” said Willy De Ocampo, Nestlé Philippines Vice President. “So, not only will the kids get the physical and social benefits at the Summer Sports Clinics, they will also be provided with the nutritious energy of MILO.”

Nourishing Champions Through the Years

For more than 35 years, MILO prides itself in partnering with a roster of esteemed organizations such as the BEST Center and Philippine Taekwondo Association among many others, that have been instrumental in maintaining the sports excellence that the Summer Sports Clinics is known for.

Expert coaches and instructors who have competed and won in local and international competitions such as the Southeast Asian (SEA) Games and the Olympics will handle the programs. These mentors use modern and scientific approaches that will help participants gain appreciation for the different sports, live a healthy and active lifestyle, and embody the morals of discipline, confidence, teamwork, perseverance, and hard work.

By centering on values in sports, MILO’s Summer Sports Clinics along with its other sports programs, have created outstanding personas in the sporting scene. The roster of alumni includes BEST Center graduate Chris Tiu, Taekwondo clinic graduate and SEA Games medalist Japoy Lizardo, and Gymnastics clinic graduate and SEA Games gold medalist Kaitlyn De Guzman.

“We look forward to nurture more children to be champions not just as athletes but also as individuals,” said Luigi Pumaren, MILO Sports Executive. “We encourage parents to introduce their kids to a fun, active and healthy lifestyle and make their summer worthwhile with the MILO Summer Sports Clinics.”

Get your child into sports and enroll them in the MILO Summer Sports Clinics!
