But let’s face it, living in the fast-paced world, who has the time to seat back, smell the aroma of your coffee beans while cooking your perfectly soft and round sunny-side up on a daily basis?

Exactly! That is why Mondelez Philippines introduces belVita breakfast biscuits for those frequent mornings on the go!

For a convenient and delicious mornings, belVita is a delicious breakfast biscuit specially designed to help meet the morning energy needs of consumers and keep up with their fast-paced lifestyles!

Enjoy a delicious breakfast every morning even while on-the-go as the well-loved breakfast biscuit that has helped energize consumers all over the world finally makes its debut in the Philippines.

BelVita is the first-ever breakfast biscuit from Mondelez Philippines which aims to address consumers’ growing needs for convenient and delicious well-being snacks.

Expanding in the well-being space

“We live in a fast-paced world where people have increasing awareness of their well-being needs but are sometimes challenged by the lack of time to prepare and eat a balanced breakfast. Their preferences are evolving and they want snacks that are not only delicious but offer convenience and good nutrition. We see belVita entering the breakfast category by creating this new biscuit occasion. We envision belVita to energize this well-being space,” said Anna Sapitan, Mondelez Philippines’ Marketing Manager for the Biscuits Category.

Just like any young Filipino couple, Karylle and Yael live a hectic and active lifestyle. With their life goals, they know that breakfast is very important. It’s the time they get their energy for a long list of activities ahead. “Breakfast is sometimes the only meal we get to enjoy together with our many commitments. This is why belVita breakfast biscuit is ideal for the lifestyle we have. We try to eat a balanced breakfast every morning. So we pair belVita with a piece of fruit and a glass of milk and we know we have everything we need to jumpstart our day,” Karylle shared.

As for the taste, Yael likes how tasty and easy it is for him to have his breakfast. “I like belVita not only because it is convenient to eat but also because it’s really yummy. It’s easy to reach for and it fills me up just right. When I want a delicious, healthy and convenient breakfast, it’s the perfect go-to,” Yael mused. With their jampacked days, Karylle and Yael turn to belVita as their breakfast staple, making them the perfect couple to introduce and endorse the brand to the Philippine market.

Specially created for breakfast

Several studies confirm that this accelerated shift to convenient well-being products in the snack industry is well-founded. Reference from the Philippines’ adult energy and nutrient intakes study published in the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology (FASEB) Journal in 2013identified 1 out of 5 adults in Philippines tend to skip breakfast.  It is also noted in the Food and Nutrition Research Institute 2013 Dietary Survey that only a third or 31.5% of households in urban areas are able to meet their energy requirements for the day. And in the National Capital Region, 1 in 10 or 13% of households consume their breakfast outside their homes. “Belvita is specially designed for breakfast,” said Princess Landicho, belVita Brand Manager. “Just pair it with a serving of dairy products and fruit for a balanced breakfast to help kickstart your morning with energy. It is also a great on-the-run snack because of its convenient packaging.”

“BelVita breakfast biscuits are made with whole grain cereals, which include whole wheat and oat, and are fortified with vitamins and minerals such s Vitamin A, B1, B2, B3, D, calcium, iron and zinc. And thanks to more than 15 years of research, belVita is also baked using a special gentle baking process, which helps to preserve the nutritional quality of our cereal ingredients,” Landicho added.

First launched in 2011 in the United Kingdom as a breakfast biscuit, this global breakfast icon is sold in more than 50 countries. Locally, belVita is available in two flavors: Milk and Cereal, and Honey and Chocolate. BelVita is also purposely packaged to help consumers exercise portion control. It is available in a 4-pack box with an SRP of P30.50 and the single 20g pack worth P8.25 that contains two delicious and filling biscuits. Delicious and nutritious, each piece can be part of a convenient breakfast to give energy for a packed day ahead.

Pair it with a fruit, be it banana or an apple, and a tetra milk and you’re ready to go! belVita Breakfast is specially developed by belVita’s very own nutritionists; gently baked to preserve the nutritional values of selected cereals, whole grains and 8 important vitamins and minerals (Vitamin A, Vitamin D, Vitamin E, Thiamine, Riboflavin, Niacin, Vitamin B12 and Calcium) to power up your day!

The launch was held at B Hotel in Quezon City last February 20 wherein artist and singer, Daryl Ong started the event by serenading the audience. It was followed by a short presentation by Ms. Eden, a cook and a registered nutritionist and dietitian who talked about the importance of breaking the fast right, followed by Mondelez Philippines Biscuit Category Manager, Ms. Ana Sapitan who talked about how belVita reached the Philippine shores. Last presentation was Ms. Princess Landicho, Mondelez Philippines Brand Manager who unveiled to us the two variants of belVita Breakfast Biscuits – Cereal & Milk, which is now available nationwide, and Honey & Chocolate coming soon! The event was hosted by Ms. Issa Litton who introduced us to the couple, Karylle & Yael – the new couple faces of belVita Philippines!

Aside from discussing their everyday morning routine and how thru belVita they achieve the energy they needed through out their hectic schedules, they also played a game with selected audience to see how belVita could help you win the game! Guess who won? It’s the wife. It’s always the wife! Haha Kidding aside, Yael was very game in posing and well surrendered to his wife.

#GerifiedPH: Come Alive with Phoenix Pulse

Never, in my wildest dreams did I imagine myself racing down the race track… but, you guess that right, with enough determination and a lot of courage,  I did it!

27858711_1665189373524316_4115945835601473503_n.jpg

Last Monday, yours truly was invited to try kart racing at the City Kart Racing in Circuit Makati using the latest innovation from Philippines’ leading independent oil company, Phoenix Petroleum.

The engines are roaring on the open pit while the air is filled with both of burnt tires and excitement! We were called to the briefing area, wherein we were taught the basics that we need to know –

Yellow flag for danger.

Blue flag for information.

Black flag for Finish.

Right pedal to accelerate.

Left pedal to stop.

We worn our head socks and after placing my helmet on my head, I realized that when you’re in there, you’re basically on your own, that the commentator’s comments (even when he’s calling you out) is for the audience. I just hope that I won’t crash and unravel the stack of barriers or worse, turn the vehicle upside down and explode with me in it. Me and my silly dramatic antics. First round, I familiarized myself on the track. The City Kart track was designed with an inclined bridge, a small tunnel and sweeping corners here and there. I’m resolute, I won’t race, I just have to drive and feel the breeze of wind on my arms and the scenery of green across the track, myself on the big screen and wave high to Kulay-ot as I pass him by.

Phoenix PULSE Technology

Our karts are powered by Phoenix PULSE Technology, the latest upgrade fuel from Pheoniz Petroleum, and my, I just can’t help myself from pressing down the accelerator!

Available in all its fuel products, Phoenix PULSE Technology is an innovative formulation with advanced cleaning and protection properties for enhanced power and acceleration. It is made with cutting-edge fuel technology by world- class fuel experts, exclusively for homegrown brand, Phoenix Petroleum.

Phoenix PULSE Technology was launched in time for Valentine’s Day as it aims to bring pulse-racing excitement to Filipino drivers by giving more life to their everyday drive.

The upgraded fuel products promise three main benefits. It avoids fuel filter blockage in diesel-powered vehicles, removes deposits from fuel injectors, valves, and piston surfaces, and provides engine protection. Phoenix PULSE Technology also helps result to better fuel economy when used continuously.

“The launch of Phoenix PULSE Technology is in fulfillment of our goal to be the most credible alternative to the major brands. We enhanced our fuel products and improved our formulation not only to be able to compete with bigger players in the oil industry, but more importantly, to add value to every peso fueled up at Phoenix,” said Phoenix Petroleum Chief Operating Officer Henry Fadullon.

Fuel Masters and the Phoenix Ambassadress

Young actress Rhian Ramos is the face of Phoenix PULSE Technology—an apt choice as Rhian represents adventure and high-energy sports such as car racing. “Phoenix  etroleum’s PULSE Technology-powered fuel is the perfect fit for me as I’m always on the go. I like adventure and living life with excitement and to the fullest, which is why I recommend Phoenix to every millennial who, like me, likes to get more for what they pay for,” said Rhian.

In just 15 years, Phoenix Petroleum has grown from five stations in Mindanao to 530 nationwide, establishing its reputation as the fastest-growing oil company in the Philippines. Just last year, the company broadened its portfolio to include LPG with the acquisition of Petronas Energy Philippines, Inc., now Phoenix LPG Philippines, Inc., and convenience retailing with the purchase of Philippine Family Mart. It will soon venture into the bitumen business.

More photos of the event here.

“As a homegrown brand, we aim to be the Filipinos’ top choice not only for their fuel needs, but also for fueling their dreams and aspirations. We work hard and continue to grow our business not only so we can bring our vision of being an indispensable partner to life, but also because as the next generation company, we want to provide this generation with the best products and services at the best value,” said Phoenix Petroleum President and CEO Dennis Uy.

Phoenix PULSE Technology is available in all Phoenix stations in all fuel grades. These next generation fuels are suitable for Filipino drivers looking for a connection unlike any other. Drive to the nearest Phoenix Petroleum station now to experience Phoenix PULSE Technology.

More about Phoenix Pulse Technology here.

I guess resolutions are naturally hard to maintain, in my case, pressing the accelerator is unexpectedly easier with my engine powered by Phoenix Pulse Technology, I enjoyed the fast lane going down the bridge and although smoothing a sharp curve was a challenge, it gets better every time!

Thank you so much Phoenix Petroleum for the awesome experience!

#GerifiedPH: Share Love, Not Germs with Safeguard

27913405_1665199066856680_2329641491253362854_o.jpgDabibot with his Safeguard’s Blue Heart Defense against germs!

Did you know? There are different kinds of love. For one, there is Eros. Eros is the most famed kind of love, it is passion and desire. Eros is what comes in between two couples.

But what about other kinds of love? Love of different kinds also exists and should be celebrated everyday.

Philia – this kind of love rooted for deep friendship, best friends forever. This love is for someone we could really count on.

Agape – This is love for everyone. If you see someone who needs help, and you help out, you are showing Agape.

There are more kinds of love with different kind of perspective. With that said, it only follows that love isn’t just about your typical romantic antics! It’s time to change the notion that love is for couples only. This time, why not share the love to as much people as possible? Family, friends, and even to strangers and animals, too.

Philippine’s no.1 soap for family skin germ protection, Safeguard, shares tips you wish you’ve done before. Who said that the season of love is exclusive to romantic couples? Let’s change the game this year. After all, we learned how to love at home with family and friends. There’s no better way to celebrate love than to give love to people close to our hearts and even to strangers. Spread positive vibes in ways you’ve never tried before! Here are simple yet meaningful ideas to share the love all day er’day!

! 1. Bake cupcakes for bae instead of buying flowers and chocolates Dark chocolates and red roses are so overrated. This time, be different and bake cupcakes for your loved one. Don’t know how? No problem. The Internet has tons of baking recipes for first-timers. Believe us, whether you perfect it or not, your bae would be so ‘kilig’ with those cupcakes you baked from your heart.

2. Treat mom and dad to a relaxing massage and salon service The ultimate superheroes in your life deserve a break from all the headaches you may give them. Give mom a new haircut and treat dad to a foot spa. Spoil them further with a relaxing full body massage to cap it off.

3. Call the nearest charity institution to ask how you can help` Love grows in the family, so it makes sense to share it as one. Join outreach programs with the whole family (or even your friends!) to extend the love at home to those who need it the most. It’s a different yet meaningful kind of bonding experience. In the same way, donate your excess essentials to less fortunate individuals. This is a perfect way to give back and share the love this season, even to strangers!

4. Create new memories with a spontaneous trip It’s a fact– the most hard-to-forget memories are created on the spur of the moment. So skip planning and pack your bags! It’s time to unleash the adventurous spirit in you! Take a random trip with bae, friends or family. Drive to a place you have always wanted to explore. Or, book a flight to the destination you have never been. Celebrate love with adventure.

5. Practice proper hygiene habits (aka. don’t cause the spread of germs!) Yes, you’ve read it right. Spreading love can be also lead to spreading germs. Avoid this by simply practicing proper hygiene and washing your hands regularly. Love is in the air, and so are germs! When you touch, hug or kiss your loved ones, there’s a big chance that you are spreading germs that could cause sickness.

Here’s an alarming fact from the first Philippines Handwashing Index (PHI); 7 out of 10 Filipinos say that they wash their hands after using the toilet but in reality, only 2 out of 10 really do. PHI is a breakthrough study recently commissioned by Safeguard. Keeping your loved ones safe from germs is a healthy way of showing how much you care.

Superiority

When you express your affection, be sure that you are spreading love and not germs. Wash your hands with Safeguard and water to keep it clean. Your first line of defense against sickness-causing germs, Safeguard is clinically proven to provide up to 24 hours of germ protection.

Safeguard Pure White Body Wash is available in 720ml (PhP 219), 400ml (PhP 145) and 200ml (PhP 85)

Safeguard Pure White Bar Soap is available in 90g (P 25.75), 135g (P 38), and 180g (P 48.00)

Safeguard Pure White Liquid Hand Soap is available in 225ml (P 80.00)

#GerifiedPH: Help Reshape Your Child’s Future with Parentology+

I’m a parent. What’s your superpower?
Yes, I never thought that being a parent is a superpower, too! But guess what, our kid’s future lies in our hands, and hence, we have the power to empower them or bring them down! Good thing, Nestle Nankid created a venue that’ll help parents use their powers to help reshape our child’s future!
Parentology KV
Last February 6, Nestle Nankid Milk launched Parentology+ at the Trinoma Mall Activity Center. The event was joined in by almost a hundred guests to support the advocacy in helping parents take charge of their child’s future through the simple things they do at home.
Parentology recreates a home and its rooms. The space has three stations touching on topics about lifestyle, physical activity and socialization.
After the success of its Metro Manila run, Nestlé NANKID will be bringing Parentology outside of the Metro! To reach more parents, it will be followed by events in: SM City Clark on February 10-11, Abreeza Davao on March 3-4, and SM City Cebu on March 17-18.

Today’s world is vastly different from what it was just a decade ago, causing anxiety among parents trying hard to provide their children a future full of possibilities. Technology, environmental changes, and lifestyle shifts have redefined the way people do and view things, so much so that today’s parents sometimes feel overwhelmed by the world their children are growing in.

Unlike a generation ago when school children often ate home-cooked meals and played games with neighbors, today’s children often consume fast food items while playing video games on their handhelds. Parks and outdoor spaces have been replaced by sprawling malls, while the ever increasing population has meant traffic congestion, pollution, and other urban challenges that did not exist or were not as bad ten years ago. As a result, many children have become couch potatoes with limited socialization opportunities. A number of growing kids struggle with issues such as obesity, socialization difficulties, attention problems, and the like.

Worse, there are factors that parents feel they could not do much about such as family health history, to name a few, which could potentially influence their children’s future.

Despite all these challenges, parents still possess the power to reshape the future of their children. With commitment, knowledge, and support, they can build a better future for their kids.

To guide parents in reshaping the future of their children, Nestlé NANKID is partnering with them in advancing Parentology+, an advocacy to help parents take charge of their future with simple steps that can be taken right at home.  These day-to-day measures cover the different phases of life, such as diet and nutrition, exercise and activity, socialization, and creativity.

To launch Parentology+, Nestlé NANKID will be holding a series of events to bring the advocacy closer to parents across the country. The events will feature bloggers who are also parents, and who can share their experiences about different aspects of their parenting journey. Blogger Stephanie Zubiri-Crespi and Nestlé Nutritionist Ms. Aleli Magtibay will give insights on nutrition and diet.  Football player Anton del Rosario will share how he got his son to embrace an active lifestyle and love sports.  Entrepreneur and stylist Cat Arambulo-Antonio will speak on how she helped her children learn to socialize with their peers, and tidbits on how to stimulate their creativity and confidence.

Parentology+ recreates a typical home and its rooms. The space will consist of three stations touching on three important topics: Food, Physical Activity and Socialization– fill your day with ways you can stay lean at the Foodie station and make sure to get that drool-worthy photo, jump into a ball pit at the Play station and play on a giant piano at the Social station, and so much more! Each station will be decked out to be Instagram-worthy for those who want to share their family bonding moments on social media so make sure to check it out!

To up the ante, a special keepsakes and lots of freebies will be given to the participants. And for added excitement, Nestlé NANKID will be giving away Instax SQ10 cameras to two lucky attendees in each run!

27628727_1657286267647960_60075100573431926_o.jpg

Parentology+ kicks off starting February 3 to 4 at the Activity Center in Trinoma Mall, which starts the Metro Manila run. To reach more parents, it will be followed by events in:

  • SM City Clark on February 10-11,

  • Abreeza Davao on March 3-4, and

  • SM City Cebu on March 17-18.

Tanduay Athletics Locked In for Grassroots Basketball

Every hard work should have a reward, so take a time out from your daily hustle and unwind with Tanduay Rhum! Tanduay is the number one rhum for every occasion.

Tanduay Distillers Inc. president Lucio “Bong” Tan, Jr. is taking his support to grassroots sports a step further as he goes on full offensive for Batangas Tanduay Athletics in the new Maharlika Pilipinas Basketball League (MPBL).

Tan, whose passion for basketball was cultivated in childhood, believes he saw a formidable ally in MPBL founder Sen. Manuel Pacquiao in providing opportunities for local talents from the regions to advance their basketball dreams.

27709430_1995112373837899_1044089369190399697_o

“When we formed Tanduay Athletics, we had grassroots youth development as one of its major thrusts. We believe we can give equal opportunities to aspiring basketball talents from the cities and the regions through MPBL,” Tan said.

The MPBL features teams that represent a province, city or municipality in a home-and-away set up, where players get to play in front of hometown fans.
Each team is required to have at least three players that are homegrown to the area they represent.

Aside from Batangas Tanduay Athletics, other teams playing for the MPBL include Bataan Defenders, Bulacan Kuyas, Valenzuela Classic, Marikina Athletics, Caloocan Supremos, Navotas Redcore and Muntinlupa.

“We put our hope in the next generation to make better their lives and become useful to society. To give meaning to words, we support avenues that will enable them like the MPBL and Batangas is close to home. That makes this endeavor special and worthwhile,” Tan further explained.

Tanduay Distillers’ alcohol refinery Absolut Distillers Inc. has been operating for 26 years in Lian, Batangas. It is one of the country’s most advanced distilleries that has received multiple local and international awards for operating on zero waste and employing green practices.

“We have a very encouraging start with the strong performance of the team. We hope to continue the momentum. But in every league or sport we support, what’s important is how we are making a difference in the lives of the athletes. How they develop as individuals and how they will continue to inspire a nation as an athlete like Manny Pacquiao is why we are here to support,” Tan concluded.

The Batangas-Tanduay Athletics had an early win during a match with Valenzuela Classic and Bataan Defenders as former Philippine Basketball Association (PBA) players Val Acuna and Lester Alvarez lead the way for the new team.

MPBL games air every Tuesday, Thursday, and ‪Saturday from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m in ABSCBN Sports and Action. ‬‬

Take a swig and enjoy the moment with Tanduay Rhum.

#GerifiedPH: Make the Right Organic Choice with Promil Organic

I spilled the milk but just like how sometimes our wrongs were the reasons why we end up being successful, and how we finally realize that those wrongs were actually the road to our success, spilling the milk and then finally ending up with this rustic flatlay, I guess I could say that I succeeded.

27336486_1657002691009651_6438307844109140345_n.jpg

It’s no surprise, humans aren’t perfect after all and hence mistakes are always a given, but that shouldn’t hinder us in persevering in doing what is good and what is right, and that includes making the right organic choice when it comes to our kid’s milk, too!

Going organic may have multiple benefits that help us lead more healthy lives. Taking the more natural approach or ‘going green’ has even been proven to help conserve the environment and improve the lives of farmers. Indeed, the organic lifestyle is steadily increasing in popularity among more and more Filipinos. With the recent launch of an organic milk brand in the market, Filipino moms now have the option to provide their children with better nutrition that will help develop their minds and bodies.

_GP27536.JPG

Proud moms Andi Manzano, Cat Ledesma, and Hindy Weber Tantoco hosted the event, and shared insights about being a mom and tips on parenting. Sharing their own inspiring stories about motherhood to encourage parents to try an organic lifestyle. “We are proud to be joined by these women who pursue a healthy lifestyle,” says Patricia Cuna, Brand Manager for Promil® Organic. “They are dedicated mothers who only want the best for their children. We hope that their support could help us to inspire more parents to try a healthier lifestyle for their family, starting with Promil® Organic.”

Wyeth Nutrition debuts the new Promil® Organic in a fun-filled and informative launch at Palazzo Verde in Las Pinas, gathering moms, trade partners and subject-matter experts. The latest innovation from the leading nutrition firm is made from the best of nature and expertly designed to nurture children’s gifts.
“Promil, moms’ trusted partner for the past 30 years, recognizes the growing needs of moms to provide a healthier foundation for their child through the organic lifestyle. We developed Promil® Organic to address the growing demand for organic products. It is made from 100% organic dairy milk from certified organic European farms,” says Theresa Chong, Marketing Director, Wyeth Philippines Inc.
Promil® Organic contains docosahexaeonic and arachidonic acid (DHA & AA) and is also a source of zinc and selenium to support brain and body development. It is the only organic formula milk expertly designed with these key nutrients. According to surveys, the global organic food and beverage market is expected to reach USD 211.44 billion by 2020. More people are realizing the benefits of organic consumption and that they can still meet their daily dietary needs.

Aside from the Photo Curating Class with Ms. Chi-Chi Tullao, we also had the opportunity to spend the afternoon with Sir Robert Alejandrino of Papemelroti in a short Nature-Inspired Art Class! Check out my final piece:
