Filipinos have of course long been exposed to mainstream Hollywood productions, but film is not limited to global releases and big-name-led blockbusters.

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.”

The importance of finding the right undergarment

 



When you're a plus-sized woman like me, finding the right bra even in Asian sizes can be a bit difficult. Let's admit it, not all women are created equal: not everyone is blessed to be as statuesque or voluptuous as the models we see on print and social media. But that is perfectly fine because women come in varying shapes, curves, and sizes. However, finding the right size that will highlight your assets and hide your flaws can be pretty daunting. 

Personally, as a woman, I have come to accept the fact that I need to embrace my backfats, hold together my separated east-west breasts as well as love my love handles. I just need to find the right bra for me--the one that fits me to a T. After some trial and error and what seemed to be an endless search, I'm glad to say that I was able to finally find the right bra for me. It was definitely the most comfortable wireless bra I've ever worn in my entire life. I didn't need to struggle to fit in anymore. It felt like the bra size and style were tailored-made for me.

How Curcumin from Turmeric provides natural pain relief?

 

Curcumin can be used for managing general inflammation to help address osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis that both cause joint pain, swelling, and stiffness. 



Our joints allow our bodies to move in ways that allow us to do the simplest of actions like walking or typing on our phones and computers, and also perform complicated motions such as those required in dancing and playing sports. This crucial role of our joints in movement means that they are subjected to continuous wear and tear, so it’s no surprise that we sometimes feel like our ankles, wrist, or knees are hurting.

Golden Chicken House Food Review in San Juan City and its noble advocacy

 

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.

Celebrity Couple Aubrey Miles and Troy Montero named J's Diamond Jewelry Brand Ambassadors

 

J's Diamond Ambassadors Aubrey Miles and Troy Montero

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. 

J's Diamond is resolute in its commitment to commemorate the true gift of love, it stands the test of time and adversity – a testament much like how love truly continues to prevail whatever the circumstance.

“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.”

Bring the digital revolution to sari-sari stores with Packworks

 


Sari-sari stores are an integral part of every Filipino neighborhood. It is even said that for every 100 Filipinos, there is one sari-sari store. From household essentials to quick snacks, they have it all, that’s why they have a special place in our hearts.

Though they play an important role in our communities, many sari-sari stores have been left behind by the pace of technological development. The reality is, that most of these sari-sari stores operate traditionally, still using the good old pen-and-paper method. While it undoubtedly works, it fails to enable these micro-enterprises to fulfill their full potential. To address this gap, Packworks was created.

The Complication of Measles and how can we protect our children's lives with vaccination

 


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.

How Flexible Learning Can Help Your Child Reach Their Full Potential

 



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.

Viva Films releases controversial film "Maid in Malacañang" by director Daryll Yap

 

Cesar Montano and Ruffa Guttierez play former president Ferdinand Marcos Sr. and its first lady, Imelda Marcos respectively.

Before I get bashed here (just in case I'd get any), let me just say that I was just doing my job. The grand media press conference for the latest Viva Film entitled "Maid in Malacañang" was held at the Maynila Ballroom of the hotel I am working at. So it was normal that I had to cover the said starstudded press conference attended by the celebrity cast themselves along with invited media and online entertainment sites. This is not the first time I had encountered Sen. Imee Marcos. Back in 2018, I had the privilege of meeting her in Ilocos where I was able to write about the Palace Guard Brotherhood Association.

UnionBank discusses how Open Banking will drive the digital economy

 





Open banking and open finance are two models that are now slowly taking over the financial sector, with the promise of revolutionizing banking and financial services like never before and acting as a  "catalyst for the new wave in financial innovation."

This was the main point of discussion during the 14th edition of Union Bank of the Philippines

In her presentation, Dizon explained that while open banking and open finance may differ slightly from each other—the former promotes data sharing on banking services, while the latter promotes data and capability sharing across the financial sector—the goal is the same, which is the creation of an open ecosystem.

In observance of World Oceans Day, SM Cares held a special version of its Plastic Waste Collection Program in partnership with the Department of Environment and Natural Resources- National Capital Region (DENR-NCR) to underscore the importance of adopting sustainable habits such as reducing plastic consumption and planting trees.

Conducted simultaneously in the following SM malls: Megamall, Mall of Asia, North EDSA, Fairview, Southmall, East Ortigas, Marikina, and Marilao, the activity supported DENR-NCR& Community PanTREE, a program that was launched in 2021 with the aim of providing free fruit-bearing seedlings to encourage urban and backyard gardening.

Participants who brought at least 1 kg of plastic waste each got a free seedling from the Community PanTREE. More than 700 kg of plastic was collected through the activity and has distributed 700 pcs of seedlings across the 8 collection venues.




“The goal of this activity is to help divert plastic waste from ending up in landfills and bodies of water while also giving the participants the opportunity to grow their own trees,” said Director of SM Cares &  Program on Environment Engr. Liza Silerio.

SM’s Plastic Waste Collection program has gathered over 16,000 kg of plastic for re-processing since it began in 2021. Currently available in 12 SM malls, it is just one of SM Cares' numerous sustainability projects. The pioneering Trash to Cash recycling market and the E-Waste Collection Programs round up the initiatives on solid waste management. Other projects include the annual Green Film Festival, which promotes environmental awareness; the AweSMSeas project in partnership with the USAID and PRRCI, which promotes responsible plastic waste management; and the International Coastal Cleanup which gathers thousands of volunteers every year, among others.

Why a collagen supplement is worth a spot in your skincare routine

 


One of the building blocks of healthy skin – not to mention hair and nails – is collagen. There are around 28 types of human collagen, but the most common are Types I, II, III, and IV. The most abundant of these is Type I which is found in skin, bone, ligaments, and organs. That’s why, familiar to many of us who are into skincare, collagen plays a vital part in creating and maintaining plump, supple skin.

But as with all good things, age does put a damper when it comes to our body’s collagen production, and in turn triggers the loss of elasticity, radiance, and firmness. Sad, we know, but though we can’t prevent the loss of collagen, we can still find ways to slow it down. Some studies have provided good points that taking a collagen supplement could help too.

It isn’t surprising that a collagen supplement has taken a spot in our skincare routine, which is constantly evolving. Before, the usual regimen involved only the basics such as cleansing, toning, and moisturizing. Then we discovered essences, serums, and face masks. These days, we’ve looked more into tackling concerns from the inside out, with ingestible beauty supplements that instantly perk up dull skin.

LifeFood Collagen jelly comes in a convenient package for a fun and quick snacking.

Emirates launches full Premium Economy Experience

 

Emirates Premium Economy will be deployed on high-traffic A380 routes to London
Heathrow, Paris Charles de Gaulle, Sydney, and Christchurch

Flyers can look forward to another distinctive Emirates travel experience as the airline unveils its full Premium Economy offering onboard and on ground, and announces it will open this highly sought-after cabin for sale from June 1, 2022.
 
The new cabin class, which offers luxurious seats, more legroom, and a service to rival many airlines’ business offering, will be available to Emirates customers travelling on popular A380 routes to London, Paris, Sydney from August 1, and Christchurch from December.
 
Emirates is the only airline in the region to offer a Premium Economy cabin. As with everything we do, Emirates Premium Economy will be exceptional in its class, with minute attention given to every aspect of the customer experience. Customers trading up from Economy will be getting excellent value,” said Sir Tim Clark, President Emirates Airline.

Announces at Arabian Travel Market that this new cabin class will be open for sale on June 1, for flights from August


Since we first introduced our Premium Economy seats in January 2021, the positive response and demand has been tremendous. We currently have six A380s equipped with this cabin  class, which limits our initial deployment, but our intention is to offer this experience to many more markets across our network. This November, we will begin our retrofit program to install Premium Economy on 67 A380s and 53 Boeing 777s. At the end of the program, Emirates will  have 126 aircraft fitted out with Premium Economy cabins, as well as our latest interiors across other cabins. It is a major investment to ensure our customers continue to have the best experience in the sky.
 
Emirates Premium Economy is in a class of its own, offering a signature experience unmatched in the industry.  Dedicated airport experience: Customers can look forward to a dedicated check-in area for Premium Economy at Dubai International airport, or utilize one of the many convenient self-service check in kiosks in the hall to avoid queues.
 
Luxurious seats: Once onboard, customers will immediately notice the quiet luxury in Emirates’ Premium Economy cabin. A wood panel finishing similar to Business Class sets the cabin’s mood, and each seat is designed to provide optimal comfort and support with 6-way adjustable headrests. 

The cream-colored leather seats have a generous pitch of up to 40 inches, is 19.5 inches wide, and reclines 8 inches into a comfortable cradle position with ample room to stretch out. It also offers calf rests and footrests for additional comfort, in addition to many other thoughtful touches such as easily accessible in-seat charging points and a side cocktail table.
 
Comfort: Customers can get comfortable under soft, sustainable blankets made from recycled plastic bottles, and snuggle into the generously sized pillow, both designed uniquely for Premium Economy. They can also refresh themselves with the complimentary amenity kits which come in reusable, sustainable bags, and contain items which are all made with some element of recycled or sustainable materials.
