Belle de Jour Inspires Filipino Youth to Dream with Freedom to Dream 2019 Summit


Viviamo! Inc., makers of the Belle de Jour Power Planner, is spearheading the first Freedom to Dream Summit on April 13,2019 at the Red Carpet Cinema, Shangri-La Plaza. The event is meant to inspire and encourage the Filipino youth to discover their dreams, pursue their passions, and make a difference.


7 out of 10 Filipinos do not have a dream—study

The Dream Project PH, a non-stock and non-profit organization, conducted a survey among teenagers across the country. According to the study, 7 out of 10 Filipinos do not have a dream in life. Reasons include discouraging words from others, a lack of self-esteem, lack of passion, lack of opportunities, and poverty.

Is it any wonder why many Filipinos don’t know who they are and what to do next? Darlyn Ty-Nilo, president of Viviamo and creator of Belle de Jour Power Planner, hopes to change this. “We want to take action,” she shares, “by creating positive conversations on dreaming.” Through this initiative, Darlyn and her team hopes to make lasting change among the Filipino youth by giving them the freedom to dream.

Addressing the needs of Filipino youth

The Freedom to Dream summit will have three plenary sessions, addressing the barriers that contribute to the lack of dreaming.

The first plenary, “Raising Self-Worth,” aims to address the discouraging words spoken against the Filipino youth, and the self-esteem issues that resulted from this. Raising self-worth means having faith in oneself and believing that they are worthy of living the life they want.

Participants will hear from Dr. Gia Sison, a mental health advocate who hosts “G Talks,” a talk show in CNN Philippines. Rezza Custodio Soriano, a life coach and “transformologist,” will be one of the speakers on raising one’s self-worth.

The second plenary session, “Igniting Your Passion,” will encourage participants to find the purpose and passion that excites them and invite them to have the drive to stand up and persevere despite experiencing day-to-day challenges.

Prim Paypon, Filipino Dreamagineer and founder of the The Dream Project PH, and Aimee Hashim, lifestyle consultant and founder of LoveLuxe Trading Inc., will be speakers for “Igniting Your Passion.”

Finally, attendees will know how to put their dreams into reality with “Making it Happen,” the event’s third plenary session. Participants will learn how to maximize their resources and act on their goals, despite the lack of opportunities and abject poverty. Multi-awarded entrepreneur behind Oryspa Spa Solutions Inc., educator and advocate of the Filipino brand Sherill Quintana; and Jessica Lopez, Maningning Miclat Art 2018 awardee who created artworks out of milkfish bones will be speakers of this plenary.

Multi-awarded singer-songwriter Jose Villanueva, better known as “Quest,” will be one of Freedom to Dream’s keynote speakers. He envisions creating a culture of sharing positivity, harnessing his talents and influence to uplift the nation.

Apart from the plenaries, there will be fast talk conversations with successful women entrepreneurs and artists who’ll share personal stories on dreaming big and getting over discouragements.

Advocacy expo and mini concert

Participants will have access to an advocacy expo, to raise awareness on a wide range of advocacies that Viviamo! Inc. supports. In fact, 100% of the net proceeds will go to their chosen charity organizations. Apart from this, eventgoers are in for a musical treat with a mini concert after the plenaries. The concert is to be led by Quest and other special guests.

Through this event, Viviamo! Inc. aims to spark positive conversations on dreaming, break barriers, and empower the Filipino youth to live their dreams.

The summit is co-presented by The After Six Club and BraveWorks. For more information on the Freedom to Dream 2019 Summit and how to purchase tickets, visit

JoshLia drawn by the irresistible langhap-sarap Jollibee Yumburger

Joshua Garcia and Julia Barretto know all about being irresistible.

In their newest commercial for Jollibee, the country’s leading fast-food brand, the popular love team delivers kilig once again alongside their favorite Yumburger.

Playing to the irresistibly delicious aroma of Jollibee’s best-selling burger, Joshua uses a freshly cooked Yumburger to draw in Julia for a special date he prepared. Guided by the mouthwatering scent wafting from the burger, Julia walks into a Jollibee store filled with rows of balloons and roses.


Ang napaka-unique na katangian ng Yumburger ay ‘yung amoy pa lang, alam mong masarap na,” Joshua shared. “Kapag nalanghap mo, talagang hindi mo mahihindian at mapapakagat ka talaga!”

 “The aroma of the Yumburger is truly something unique. There’s no mistaking that it’s a delicious burger,” Julia agreed. “Unwrapping the Yumburger and breathing in that smell then taking a bite is an experience both me and Joshua will never say no or get tired of.”

 Irresistibly beefy langhap-sarap

The secret behind this time-tested, unmistakable aroma is the Yumburger patty which is made with 100% pure beef. Satisfyingly meaty and seasoned to suit the Pinoy palate, the Yumburger patty is carefully cooked to achieve beefy and savory flavors and aroma.

With soft buns and a special burger dressing that complements the savory notes of the beef patty, the Yumburger delivers an incomparable experience with every bite.

“I think this combination of a really masarap aroma and delicious ingredients have made Yumburger irresistible not only for me and Josh, but also for other burger-loving Filipinos,” added Julia.




Kaya nga sa commercial namin, ‘di agad napansin ni Julia ‘yung romantic decoration! Ganun din siya sa totoong buhay, basta masarap ang pagkain, ‘di na niya napapansin ang nasa paligid,” quipped Joshua.

“Science has proven that the senses of smell and taste always go together, which is why it’s really important that food must smell and taste good,” said Cathleen D. Capati, Assistant Vice President for Jollibee Marketing. “The Yumburger delivers on both fronts—more than just a catchy slogan that rhymes, langhap-sarap is a product truth that we can prove with every bite.”

Indulge in the irresistibly beefy langhap-sarap Yumburger today—available in all Jollibee stores nationwide for dine-in, take-out, delivery, and drive-thru transactions. Prices start at P35.00 (Solo).

Mega Prime and Masflex come together to serve more Filipino homemakers

In a mutual interest to serving the Filipino homemaker, leading canned food  manufacturer Mega Prime has partnered with kitchenware giant Masflex. Recognizing the need for affordable and quality products for their consumers, this partnership will allow both brands to continue empowering Filipino families when it comes to their kitchen needs.
“Mega Prime has always been committed to turning everyday dishes into extraordinary meals through our full line of premium products. We are always looking for companies like Masflex that share our goal of enhancing the kitchen experience by helping moms to become savvy homemakers. Through this partnership, we can continue to provide activities and offerings that will benefit our consumers,” remarks Mega Prime’s Sales and Marketing Head, Marvin Tiu Lim.
Before Masflex, Filipino consumers were forced to buy very expensive global brands which majority couldn’t afford, and some were forced to deal with the lower-quality locally-made recycled scrap material cookware that posed a health risk. Masflex recognized these extremes in the market and decided to provide a range of affordable products that still had a standard of quality for homemakers. To answer the needs of the Filipino homemakers love for their cooking, the Masflex brand was born.
Now, Masflex has become the country’s leading provider of affordable, easy-to-use, and high quality kitchen and dining solutions, and has been supportive of the same cause as Mega Prime.
“We are looking forward to this partnership with Mega Prime and are very excited about exploring different sales and marketing initiatives and advocacies that will further enhance our consumers’ brand experiences,” explains Ram Mirchandani, Masflex’s VP for Sales and Business Development.
