#SpeakOutListenUp: Avon Philippines empowers women against gender-based violence

Violence against women
Gender-based violence (GBV) or violence against women and girls (VAWG), is a global pandemic that affects 1 in 3 women in their lifetime.
The numbers are staggering:
  • 35% of women worldwide have experienced either physical and/or sexual intimate partner violence or non-partner sexual violence.
  • Globally, 7% of women have been sexually assaulted by someone other than a partner.
  • Globally, as many as 38% of murders of women are committed by an intimate partner.
  • 200 million women have experienced female genital mutilation/cutting.
Unfortunately, the Philippines is said to be one of the most dangerous places for women in Asia. Rape happens every 72 minutes, and at least 1 in 20 women aged  15 to 49 experienced sexual violence. Of all Filipinas who have been harassed, half of them took it and seemed to have accepted them as it is. It's such a grim that reality stories such as these are oftentimes ignored, ridiculed or discredited. 

An initiative by the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts in partnership with Avon Philippines shows 16 Days of Activism where for 16 days, orange has been chosen as a symbol of a brighter future where women won't fear violence in their own homes, streets or online. The said color shows solidarity with women all around the globe. Avon is going orange across its social media platforms starting November 25 (UN's International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women) to December 10 (Human Right's Day).

Mega Prime Help Moms to Make One Truly Unforgettable Christmas

The Holiday Season is indeed fast approaching. We could already feel and see the festive vibe everywhere which will remind us of Christmas. And as moms, most of us feel pressured to make sure everything will be turning out okay with our household: from the Christmas decors to preparing the presents, all the way down to what kind of dishes do we prepare for Noche Buena as well as when unexpected visitors would come for a visit. Admittedly, the Christmas Season can be truly daunting for some of us. 

To empower moms, Mega Prime Quality recently held another exciting event for moms and their families by treating them to a special holiday workshop and other activities exclusively for Prime Mom Club members, bloggers and members of the media. The event was held at the SM The Block and it was well attended by home-makers and their respective families. The kids got the chance to meet and greet Santa where they also had photo opportunities with him at the Santa’s Corner. Their creativity and artistic inclinations were also exercised with the arts and crafts booth where they created holiday cards.

Skin Can Tell Relief and Repair Lotion Product Review

My skin is very important to me because it is my largest organ.

People who knew me personally can attest that I probably have one of the roughest dry hands you’ll ever touch. It’s been a problem for me since time immemorial the very reason why I hate holding other people’s hands during Sunday masses [when Catholics pray The Lord’s Prayer, we hold hands with strangers]. I tried using branded ones as well as unknown hand creams and skin lotions hoping my dry hands would be able to find something that would end my dry hands misery, but to no avail. That’s why I’m very fussy when it comes to the products I use as I hate anything that leaves you feeling greasy [as most lotion or hand creams would actually do], but at the same time, I want my dry hands to become moisturized without the greasy after feel.

I was recently given a product by my good friend Alma Rivera. She is a distributor of these products from this brand called Skin Can Tell. She said it was owned by a Filipina who works for ABS-CBN. Alma and I had crossed paths while we were both brainstormers for the said network’s concept development group way back in 2004. Anyway, going back to the product that Alma has been raving about, she gave me and my boyfriend, Jason sample mini tube sizes of Skin Can Tell Relief and Repair Lotion. The product claims to relieve stress and muscle aches, fights body acne problems and helps moisturize the skin.

The rise of e-cigarettes and RELX Technology

The rise of e-cigarettes
Electronic cigarettes, or e-cigarettes, are battery operated devices that heat a liquid to produce a vapor that users inhale.  They are designed to deliver nicotine and/or other chemicals via an aerosol vapor directly to your lungs (also referred to as vape or e-liquid nicotine). E-cigarettes do not generally contain tobacco and products vary in terms of ingredients and designs.
All e-cigarettes have three basic components: a battery, an atomizer and a fluid cartridge. The fluid used in e-cigarettes usually contains propylene glycol, glycerol, nicotine and added flavorings.

RELX Original Color E-Cigars

The use of electronic cigarettes has surged worldwide over the past decade, with the global market valued at US$10.3B in 2018 and expected to grow at a CAGR of 24.9% from 2019 to 2025 per multiple reports. Though there are several major players in the vaping industry, most of them owned by tobacco companies, one recent independent entrant, RELX Technology – pronounced “relax” – has stood out from the competition.

Monga Taiwan’s Most Popular Chicken Cutlet Chain is Now in the Philippines

Monga is now in the Philippines!
When one mentions the word Taiwan, the first thing that comes to mind would probably be having a milk tea, but mark my word, once you get hold of Monga—Taiwan’s number 1 fried chicken cutlet chain, you’d surely be craving for more and probably pair your favorite milk tea with this humongous chicken chops from Monga which incidentally recently opened its first Philippine store at the basement of SM Megamall [just across the food court, right beside the escalator in Mega A].

We have to thank the people behind the Vikings Group for being instrumental in bringing the goodness of Taiwan’s most popular chicken cutlet in the Philippine shore. Known for their line of buffet restaurants, The Vikings Group believes that Monga will also be patronized well by Filipinos who are naturally foodies at heart. 

Monga opens at SM Megamall
Monga is patterened after Taiwan’s night markets. Nono Chen, a renowned Taiwanese celebrity and Monga founder flew all the way from Taiwan to welcome Filipinos into the store opening for a full experience of the place down to its taste.

Sweet treats await Milktea Lovers with this Black Dragon Oolong Drink from Monga

I’ve had experienced Monga myself and I’m telling you it’s not your typical boneless fried chicken. For one, it’s 2-inches thick fried chicken fillets which are marinated with honey, dipped in batter instead of the usual dry flour and then dried to perfection. It’s flavorful on its own [even the white meat alone] with or without its crispy skin. They offer more chicken cutlet choices, more daily steals, and some new drinks to try too. Be warned though: Monga’s chicken cutlets are big on size and big on flavor as well.
