The Baby and Family Expo Philippines 2013


Wazzup Pilipinas!


As always, I was very early at the event and was there even before the organizers were able to complete the preparation for the biggest baby and family event press conference. I think this may really be the biggest as I've seen their list of sponsors and partners, and "Oh, baby boy!" it was really an amazing long list, making me very proud to be part of this event.

The Baby and Family Expo Philippines 2013 - “Welcoming Life, Love and Care”, the country’s biggest family expo for all maternity, baby, early childhood and parenting needs was officially launched last October 24, 2013 at Fun Ranch, located at Frontera Verde, Pasig City.

Pilipinas-Universe 2000 winner and celebrity mom, Nina Ricci Alagao-Flores and was attended by personalities like ANC’s “On the Money” host and The Master’s Academy President, Edric Mendoza and Medela Moms’ co-founder, Maricel Cua and the wife of Azkals Coach, Mrs. Yoshiko Weiss.

Epson Holds Color Brightness Projector Expo To Educate Public


Wazzup Pilipinas!


Epson, the no. 1 projector maker in the world1, recently held a 3-day Color Brightness Projector Expo and Launch at the SM North EDSA (Cyberzone) to educate the public about the importance of knowing the Color Light Output (CLO) of a projector.

CLO is a measurement of Color Brightness in projectors. It is a scientiļ¬c global standard that measures the luminance of the colors Red, Green, and Blue. The metric was developed to provide customers with fair and accurate information in choosing the right projector.

“About 70% of projector buyers aren’t aware that the ‘lumens’ advertised in projector specifications only refers to white brightness. For most projectors using 1-chip technology, their color brightness is only 1/3 of their advertised lumens – as such, their 2100-lumens projector typically can only display 700 lumens of color,” said Lyn Lizarondo, Epson Philippines’ Product Manager for Visual Instruments.

Some of the Famous Love Stories in Greek Mythology


Wazzup Pilipinas!

Love is wonderful, isn’t it? It is good to know that, there are many people who are very interested when it comes to love. When I was in my junior high school, we talked about the love stories of different gods and goddesses in the Greek mythology. In my senior high school, I also have learned different kinds of love stories in the ancient Greek mythology.

Let me give you some of the love stories I have learned:

The love story of Thisbe and Pyramus, their love is like to Romeo and Juliet but they are not totally the same. The story of Thisbe and Pyramus, they were neighbors but their parents forbid the love that connects them together. The parents of the two lovers don’t allow them to see each other. They communicate to each other by the hole in the wall that separates their houses. Though their parents were against to their love for each other it is not a hindrance for them. They always set a place to meet. In this story, I can say it’s not a happy ending because at the end they both die together. It’s love, right? That’s the power of LOVE!

Parties would always have sandwiches as part of their snacks or "merienda" offering. With the many varieties of breads available in creating sandwiches, the opportunities to surprise your guests are endless.

What is so great about sandwiches is that the number of sandwich combinations you can think of is countless thus it is a challenge to create one that will be surely enjoyed by your guests. It's all up your creativity and good taste to come out with one that will be a big hit.

Gardenia Bakeries Philippines Inc., scoured for the local culinary geniuses, specifically within ten universities, to discover "The Next Big Sandwich Hit"!

Among the schools targeted for the search was the Philippine Women's University (PWU) where I was able to witness a competition among five group of students all battling for the best sandwich creation.
