Kwentuhang Toothpaste With @SydneySanggol and Gumtect. #ProtectWithGumtect #AMouthfullAdventure

Hello Champs,

10 months ago, kinukuwentuhan ko ang unborn daughter ko tungkol sa mga toothpaste. Ugali ko nang magkwento sa kanya ng kung anu-anong mga bagay. Sabi kasi sa mga nabasa ko, nakakatalino daw sa mga babies yung ganun.

I was talking to her about brushing her teeth kahit na alam kong hindi pa makukumpleto ang mga ngipin niya until she is seven years old. I was telling her the different brands available on the market. I advised her to use Gumtect kahit hindi ko alam kung sino ang manufacturers ng Gumtect.

I first came across the toothpaste brand after ko magpa oral prophylaxis nung wala na akong braces. ALam mo naman, pag nagpa-braces ka, gagalaw ang buong bibig mo at maiiba alignment ng mga ngipin mo. To support my arranged set of dental whites, dapat – healthy din ang gums; at hindi pwede ang puchu-puchung toothpaste. Hindi pwede yung mga mababango lang sa hininga. Dapat, yung may special formulation para maalagaan at matulungan mag regenerate ang gums na susuporta sa ngipin.

Dun ko nakita ang Gumtect.

Uy Gumtect!

Uy Gumtect!

Sa mga ayaw mahirapan sa pag-Google, Oral Prophylaxis simply means paglinis ng ngipin with your dentist. Libre yun sa health card mo twice a year.

Last week, I was lucky enough to join a food crawl sa Maginhawa para masubukan ang iba’t ibang lasa at sensation sa bibig. Hindi ito first time para sa atin. Araw-araw tayong nakaka-experience ng mainit na sabaw, malamig na dessert, at matitigas na pagkain. Hindi rin nawawala sa atin ang matatamis.

Lahat nang yun – nakaaapekto sa kundisyon ng ating bibig.

And of course kailangan natin ng partners na malupit para alagaan ang ating gilagid.

Hindi na ako magpapaikot-ikot sa kwento dahil nasabi ko na ang gusto ko sabihin. Enjoy the pictures and videos na lang, dear champions.

#AyokoNgPlastik movement by WWF-Philippines and Ayala Malls.

Uniting under the call to end plastic pollution, the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) Philippines, together with Ayala Malls and other partner corporations, officially launched the #AyokoNgPlastik movement at Glorietta 2 Activity Center.

With eight million tons of plastic ending up in oceans every year, the Philippines ranks as the world’s third plastic polluter of oceans. The #AyokoNgPlastik movement hopes to address these alarming facts by bringing together companies, individuals, and other sectors to minimize and eventually put a stop to single-use plastics such as straws, bags, bottles, and cups. Refusing these is a simple yet strong first step that individuals can take to commit to a sustainable lifestyle, especially since the harm that these materials cause directly affect humans.

“Plastic pollution is a serious threat not only to marine life but to human life as well. Plastics don’t completely degenerate and just break down into small pieces ─ microplastics ─ which are ingested by the fish that we eat. The possibility of plastics ending up on dinner plates is a serious concern and a health hazard,” said Joel Palma, WWF-Philippines President and CEO.

The movement is one of the major projects of WWF-Philippines this year. Initiated by its Next Generation Council (NGC), the goal is to raise awareness and encourage individuals to live more consciously and for businesses to operate more sustainably. Introduced during the event, the NGC is made up of young movers and shakers who heeded the call to spread WWF-Philippines’ conservation thrusts. Headed by The Net Group Chair Raymond Rufino, members include television host and columnist Stephanie Zubiri-Crespi, Philux COO Stephanie Kienle-Gonzalez, Magsaysay Transport and Logistics COO Jesse Maxwell, Teach for the Philippines CEO Clarissa Delgado, The Moment Group Co-Founder and Creative Director Abba Napa, and former WWF-Philippines National Youth Council Chairperson Alexa Cancio.

“Driven by deep concern, every member of the NGC is volunteering time, energy and resources to reduce single-use plastic pollution in the country.  The challenge is daunting but we are determined and committed,” stated Rufino.

Ayala Malls, one of the biggest shopping mall developers in the Philippines, has also expressed support for the movement. As part of the Ayala group of companies (recognized by the United Nations as a sustainable development pioneer), Ayala Malls is committed to driving sustainable business and living practices across their many developments.

“Sustainability has long been a priority for Ayala Malls and we’re especially proud to have the chance to continue the momentum with WWF. We launched our initial campaign in 2009, with the aim to bring focus to the importance of sustainable living, and last year we established our intent for no plastic shopping bags across Ayala Malls. We are thrilled to have found a partner in WWF for #AyokoNgPlastik campaign, as we work together for a more sustainable future for the Philippines,” said Mariana Zobel de Ayala, Ayala Malls Deputy Head.

In addition to Ayala Malls, other official partners of the #AyokoNgPlastik movement present during the event include National Geographic, Bellevue Hotels and Resorts, Bo’s Coffee, Corkcicle, Coffee Project, Daluyon Beach and Mountain Resort, Puerto Pension Inn, foodpanda, HSBC, Impact Hub Manila, IVO, The Lind Boracay, The Moment Group, Toby’s Estate, CIBO, and CNN-Philippines.

“We’re very grateful to have a number of companies join the movement this early on. With their involvement, it makes it easier for Filipinos to veer away from plastic and choose a sustainable alternative instead. We’re hoping to get more partners to participate in this cause,” Palma remarked.

WWF-Philippines National Ambassadors Marc Nelson and Rovilson Fernandez, who hosted the kickoff event, both stressed the importance of every Filipino’s participation in the movement and how this can contribute to positive environmental change by stating how cleaning up oceans and coastlines is essential in restoring marine life and reiterating the importance of preventing pollutants from entering the oceans.

“We’re very happy to see the growing number of people interested in beach cleanups. Now the challenge we must all take is to go beyond the beach and do whatever it takes to reduce our own carbon footprint,” Fernandez said.

“The amount of trash being collected during cleanups is just unimaginable. Everyone needs to realize that our trash is never actually gone and just ends up somewhere else. We need to be responsible travelers and consumers and avoid single-use plastics and recycle what we can,” Nelson added.

If production and usage of plastic remain unchanged, experts predict that there could be more plastic than fish in the ocean by 2050. Everyone is invited to take part in the #AyokoNgPlastik movement and can find more details through WWF-Philippines’ social media pages or the official #AyokoNgPlastik Facebook group, which now has almost 3,000 members since its launch 2 months ago.

Getting A Ducati – My Dream Bike Since I Got My First Old Spice

I can still remember back in Marketing and Sales class, the professor once asked, “what do you desire? something tangible, and can be purchased?” Matic, hindi na pwedeng isagot ang paboritong kong “Tunay na Pagibig”.

Sitting in the row four of our class, mauubusan ka na ng sagot. Lahat ng mga posibleng sagot, nasabi na ng blockmates mo. May mga epal pa na iregular na sumagot na gusto nila ng Ferrari. E gusto ko rin yun. Naknampuch naman bro. Wag ganun.

Uso pa Meteor Garden nun, naisip ko na sabihin na “Gusto kong maka-date is SanChay”. Pero may manyak din na blockmate ako, inunahan akong sumagot. Bawal daw yun, dahil hindi daw yun napu-purchase ng pera. Sa bagay, di naman ata pockers si SanChay.

Pagdating sakin, sabi ko – gusto ko ng bike. Ang nasa isip ko nun, Mountain Bike. Sapat na siguro yun. Payak naman akong tao.

Pero inunahan na ako ng prof namin. Tinanong niya – anong bike? Harley Davidson daw ba, o Ducati? E wala akong alam sa mga big bike. Hindi ko mabigkas yung Harley Davidson dahil hindi ko naman yun friend sa Friendster. Hindi pa uso ang Facebook at wala pa tayong mga nala-like na FB pages.

Tumatak sa akin ang Ducati.

At buti na lang, naka-Old Spice ako na Deodorant nung college days.

Dalawang Buwan Na. Di Na Muli.

2 months na si Sydney Sanggol. May mga moments siya na nags-smile at nakikipaglaro. Masaya pag ganun, pero minsan lang na moments yun.

Sydney Sanggol @ 2 months

Sydney Sanggol @ 2 months

Mas maraming moments yung iiyak siya, hahanapin yung tulog, iiyak dahil gusto magdede, gusto magpapalit ng diaper, naiinitan, o kaya naman, gusto lang magpakarga. Hindi na nga makagawa ng ibang bagay ang mudra niya dahil parating nakadikit ang sanggol.

Sabi nung mga ate at kuya namin, minsan lang naman yan. Pag pumasok sa school yan, mamimiss mo yan. Di na muli mangyayari ang mga pagkarga-karga niya. Di na muli mayayakap na walang angal. Di na muli hahawak sa kamay mo pag teenager na. Di na muli magpapahalik sayo pag may humahalik nang iba.

Pero matagal pa naman yun, advance lang tayo mag-isip.

Kaya naman ngayon pa lang, as much as possible, capture na natin ang moments. Sure kasi tayo na pag lumaki na si Sydney Sanggol, Di Na Muli natin mababalik ang panahon.

****

Di Na Muli was written in 2016 by long-time friends Jazz Nicolas and Wally Acolola. They entered the song into the 5th Philippine Popular (PhilPop) Music Festival, performed by The Itchyworms, where it won the grand prize. Now, in 2018, the song has been given new life in the official soundtrack of the hit film Sid & Aya (Not A Love Story) (Viva Films, starring Dingdong Dantes and Anne Curtis, directed by Irene Villamor).

Somewhere in between PhilPop and Sid & Aya, the Itchyworms set out to immortalize the song. The result was a visually stunning and emotional music video, directed by Paolo Abella. Help also came along in the form of the video’s co-director Juno Oebanda, longtime friend of the band, and the generous indulgence of none other than the Cultural Center of the Philippines. The link to the CCP is Teddy Hilado (d. 2015), recognized as the father of lighting design in Philippine theater, who is also the uncle of Oebanda.

The song’s themes of love, loss, and words left unspoken, are embodied in the elegant performances of Rosky Balahadia Hilado (Teddy’s widow, formerly of the Bayanihan Philippine Dance Company) and Carissa Adea (Ballet Philippines), and in the video’s sweeping visuals, all captured within the hallowed halls of the CCP. The music video seeks to serve as loving tribute to Teddy, whose influence is still felt and recognized to this day.

The Itchyworms are now proud to share what is probably the first-ever music video shot inside the Cultural Center of the Philippines, and extend heartfelt thanks to those who helped bring the music video to fruition.

Verse:
Nung araw kay tamis ng ating buhay
Puno ng saya at ng kulay
Di mauulit muli

Ang oras kapag hinayaang lumipas
Madarama mo hanggang bukas
Di mababawi muli

Chorus:
Ang dami daming bagay na hindi naman kailangan
Kung pwede lang bawasan natin ang mga tampuhan
Hindi mo lang alam hindi mo pa nararanasan
Kahapon sana natin di mo na pinahirapan
Patawad muli
Di na muli

Verse:
Ang oras kapag hinayaang lumipas
Madarama mo hanggang bukas
Di mababawi muli

(Instrumental)

Bridge:
At natapos ang himas ng sandal
Di kukubli aking tinig
Nang lumipas na’t di man lang nasabi
Salamat hanggang sa muli

Chorus:
Ang dami daming bagay na hindi naman kailangan
Kung pwede lang bawasan natin ang mga tampuhan
Hindi mo lang alam hindi mo pa nararanasan
Kahapon sana natin di mo na pinahirapan
Patawad muli
Di na muli

Binawi buhay mo ng walang sabi
Binubulong ko sa sarili
Mahal kita hanggang sa huli
Mahal ko hanggang sa huli
