Repertory Philippines stages Carousel topbilled by Karylle Tatlonghair and Gian Magdangal with Toff De Venecia as director
|Karylle Tatlonghair and Gian Magdangal topbills Repertory Philippines' Carousel|
Repertory Philippines (REP) steps boldly on to a brand new stage as it re-opens its theater doors with a modern reimagination of CAROUSEL. The beloved Broadway hit musical will run from November 26- December 18, 2022 at the Tanghalang Ignacio Gimenez, making it one of the first shows to run at the Cultural Center of the Philippines’ newly inaugurated black box theater.
With Music by Richard Rodgers and Book & Lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II, Carousel became an instant hit lauded by critics and audiences alike. The original production won the New York Drama Critics’ Circle Award for Best Musical. Hailed by Time Magazine as the greatest musical of the 20th century, its various revivals have also won several Tony Awards. A story about a whirlwind romance between carnival barker Billy Bigelow and millworker Julie Jordan, it features some of musical theater’s most timeless music and iconic songs including If I Loved You and You’ll Never Walk Alone.
REP’s CAROUSELis directed by Toff De Venecia who is determined to bring a bold, brave vision for the new generation of theatergoers. This glorious musical masterpiece is brought to life by a star-studded cast led by singer, actress, and OPM royalty Karylle Tatlonghari as Julie Jordan and sought-after theater leading man Gian Magdangal as Billy Bigelow.
“Today, we stand on the shoulders of giants and take on the challenge of reimagining this classic musical for contemporary Filipino audiences,” De Venecia says. “Featuring new artistic voices and talent as well as post-modern perspectives, the team boldly dreams up what ‘the best musical of the 20th century’ might look like today. It’s a radical departure from previous iterations, even from what we set out to do in 2020. We draw inspiration from Filipino creativity and the words of the original choreographer and dancer Agnes de Mille – that is, ‘taking leap after leap in the dark.’ This will be the ultimate 21st century test for a 20th century text.”

|Golden Chicken House in San Juan|
If you're looking for some delicious Chinese food, Golden Chicken House is the place to be! There are many great Chinese restaurants in the metro, but there are only a few that can actually give you true value for your money. While most people would probably think they can only get these from the Chinatown area in Binondo, San Juan City's Golden Chicken House offers amazing food at reasonable prices, so you can't go wrong with any of them.
In 1983, in a humble food stall, Holy Chicken (the name the said restaurant used to carry) began. Golden Chicken is one of the oldest Chinese Cuisine located at 163 N. Domingo Street, San Juan City. The restaurant changed its name after the owner's father passed away. They've gradually also improved their food selections and tastes over time. But they still carry some of their best-selling and heirloom recipes they've got.

Wedding is a matter of joy and excitement for wedding couples. After their wedding, they are authorized to spend their whole life with each other, sharing love, happiness, sorrow, and every difficulty of life. The wedding couple plans everything related to their wedding ceremony together with the consent of their families. Right before the engagement ceremony, they become busy thinking, planning, and deciding about their dresses for the wedding and engagement ceremony, bridal jewelry selection, decoration of the venue, and everything.
Choosing jewelry for engagement and wedding purposes is a tough task, due to the involvement of two key persons. At the time of shopping for the engagement ceremony, the would-be bride and groom want to include things according to their individual choices. Jewelry manufacturers understand the vital importance of exclusiveness as well as the mutual interest of wedding couples. And when it comes to choosing jewelry that lasts a lifetime, its best to trust only the best--J's Diamond.
“Similar to our beloved brand, J’s Diamond, which has been around for almost 10 years, the true gift of love is a celebration that translates a kind of connectedness and union that flourishes and empowers,” says Kenneth Mau, president of J’s. He continues, “It overcomes all of life's unexpected challenges and yet manages to still joyfully hold those dear to us even closer to our hearts.”

When the five-month-old son of Marissa Santos had recovered from measles, more commonly known as “tigdas,” Santos thought that that would be her son’s last encounter with the measles virus. Six years later, Santos’ son started to show symptoms of a rare and serious complication caused by measles—subacute sclerosing panencephalitis or SSPE. Santos says she hopes parents can take advantage of vaccination to help prevent measles and SSPE among their children.
Measles is a serious and highly contagious viral respiratory disease. The symptoms of measles include high-grade fever, rashes, and the three C’s—namely cough, conjunctivitis, and coryza. Measles can result in serious complications even among previously healthy children. The virus that causes measles can mutate and cause fatal complications.
The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that in 2018, more than 140,000 people—most of them children under five years old—died of measles. This was despite the availability of a safe and effective vaccine against the disease. According to the WHO, before the measles vaccine became widely used, major measles epidemics happened around every two to three years. Measles led to an estimated 2.6 million deaths per year.

The Filipino school system has been the same for 100 years, with children boxed into traditional classrooms and rigid class schedules. But as we’ve observed since the beginning of the pandemic, learning does not have to be restricted to the boundaries of a classroom.
Each child is unique. They differ in how much time they need to learn something, what sparks their interest, and what tools and resources work best for them. So why pigeonhole all students into one outdated learning setup? For many children, flexibility is key to helping them reach their full potential. This is exactly what APEC Schools’ SmartClass offers. An innovative e-homeschooling program, SmartClass is designed for independent, curiosity-driven learners.

This school year marks a new beginning for students as they gradually return to school to see their schoolmates, teachers, and friends in person after more than two years. While other schools will remain online, one thing remains the same — a reliable device is essential for schoolwork in both face-to-face and learn-from-home setups.
For those who have been wanting to purchase the learning tool of their dreams or eyeing to do a gadget upgrade, Home Credit Philippines (HCPH), the country’s leading buy now, pay later (BNPL) provider, is ringing the class bells with a big-time sale on must-have gadgets and supplies with its Back to School, Back to Sulit campaign.

Coca-Cola Philippines and Plastic Bank® collaborated effort for collection and recycling ecosystem in Cavite
In celebration of World Oceans Day, Coca-Cola Philippines and Plastic Bank® announced that in 2022, they will together help to collect 10 million post-consumer PET plastic bottles to address and solve the global packaging waste issue while improving the lives of partner collectors and junk shops enrolled in the Plastic Bank Ecosystem Impact Program. This is double their target in 2021 when 5 million used PET bottles were successfully recycled and diverted from landfills and oceans.
Through the Ecosystem Impact Week event, which will run from June 8 to 12, 2022 at Robinsons Place General Trias, Coca-Cola Philippines, Plastic Bank® and the local government of General Trias, Cavite, aim to educate more Filipinos on the value of collecting and recycling recyclable plastics. A collection booth has been set up for consumers visiting the mall, where they can bring clean and used recyclable plastic bottles and help give these a second life.
“At Coca-Cola, we recognize that we have a big role to play in helping solve the plastic waste problem,” said Tony del Rosario, President of Coca-Cola Philippines and Vice President for East Franchise Operations of Coca-Cola ASEAN and South Pacific.
“With partners like Plastic Bank, the government, non-government organizations, civil society, industry and private sectors, we know that a World Without Waste with measurable, positive impact is possible.” Del Rosario added.
Plastic Bank is a social enterprise that builds collection and recycling ecosystems in coastal communities by working directly with individuals in the informal waste sector and micro and small enterprises like junk shops. Through the Plastic Bank Ecosystem, collector partners are given access to training, tools, and equipment for efficient waste collection, and a source of livelihood. The program also connects collector partners to the market (Material Recovery Facilities or junk shop branches) that buy their collections to ensure the sustainability of the program.
