When a brand celebrates 25 years of existence in the Philippines, you know that not only are they here to stay but that they have grown and expanded throughout the years to provide even better options for their customers.
At a recent celebration of Masflex‘s 25 years of cookware and kitchenware innovation in the Philippines, I feasted on the wide variety of cookware that was laid out in a long table to showcase just how much Masflex cookware and kitchenware has already evolved since its humble beginnings in 1989 when it began with chrome organizers and nonstick fry pans with wooden handles.
That day, I arrived at the event quite early. Perfect! I had a lot of time to myself to check out the different cookware collections Masflex had developed over the years as well as personally meet Nancy Reyes-Lumen, Masflex’s brand ambassadress, whose name and face is very well known in the culinary industry and who, as we all know, comes from the famous Reyes clan that owns The Aristocrat restaurant. She actually approached me to say hi just before the event formally started (see why the early bird catches the worm?). 🙂

Question: If you could save up to 80% on body lotion, 60% on body scrub, and 55% on a hair iron, would you switch brand?
I would likely consider it strongly. After all, as a mother with a large family and a limited budget, little savings here and there mean I can use the savings for other things or just keep it for a rainy day.
Watsons also aimed to answer this question as they conducted switch tests in major cities around the country with unbranded booths and making customers try out two products per category — a Watsons brand and a leading competitor. So we could experience the Switch Test ourselves, they also made us go through several brand tests at a recent event.
Did you know that…
* Cervical cancer is the second leading cause of cancer deaths among Filipinas?
* 7 Filipino women die DAILY of cervical cancer?
* 2 out of 3 Filipinas diagnosed with cervical cancer may die within 5 years?
While that may sound like a death sentence, IT ISN’T…..if we know how to harness our power over cervical cancer.
Asthma is not a joke and I personally know why. All my kids had asthma as kids. My sister and I also suffered from asthma as kids. An aunt died of asthma complications. And I had a scary episode with one of my kids because of an asthmatic episode.
Asthma is NOT to be taken lightly.
For these reasons, I am always supportive of campaigns that draw attention to asthma and the importance of early diagnosis and treatment. That is why, as World Asthma Day was being celebrated a few weeks back, I lent my support to GSK’s ASTHMAlaya Campaign.
What better way to introduce banking to small children than to design an experience for them that is non-intimidating and fun as well.
This is exactly what Security Bank aimed for when they launched their Smart Saver Kiddie Camp which kicked off last May 19 and will continue to run in various areas.
Dear kababayan Overseas Foreign Worker (OFW):
Distance won’t matter anymore. You can extend your love and care for your loved ones’ health care in the Philippines with iRegalo, a service that lines up comprehensive health care packages — medical, dental, and eye care — that you can purchase to meet your family’s specific healthcare needs.
You may ask…why would I even use iRegalo when there are remittance centers?
1. Sending money or gift items take time (It is estimated to take about 60 days if item is sent by ship).
2. Balikbayan boxes run the risk of mishandling at the postal or Customs end and many times, are charged additional Customs fees.
3. Delayed shipments mean you also miss the occasions when you want to extend help or send gifts.
iRegalo is still expanding its services but its foremost priority now is to allow OFWs to provide healthcare to your loved ones. iRegalo has arrangements with over 350 clinics nationwide to provide medical, dental, and eye care.
Coming out of my holiday hiatus, I decided to set a positive and exciting tone for 2016 by doing a blog giveaway. Yes, I don’t always do this for many reasons, but I feel like starting 2016 not by taking in but by giving away something.
This giveaway is special because it will be for MOMMIES! I’m giving away my good friend Janice’s 2016 planner — the Mommy Mundo Mom 24/7 2016 planner. Yay!
I can’t think of a more perfect way to watch Episode 7 — Star Wars: The Force Awakens than in a Dolby Atmos cinema. I got that wish when I experienced the new Gateway Dolby Atmos Cinema for the Star Wars’ press screening, ahead of the December 17 worldwide screening.
