Vibal and HP Unites to Form the Perfect Together Partnership Beyond Printing

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Many companies have already gone digital and have openly embraced the fast-changing innovations to keep up with the ever increasing technology savvy consumers. If you'll look around, almost everyone has a smartphone or tablet (many have both and more than just one unit) that they use to communicate, do business, and get entertainment.

You'll definitely be left behind if you do not implement online strategies within your business. Almost everything can now be done over the Internet that the near future may turn out to be pure e-commerce. The day may come that it will be truly paperless and the whole world would only travel just for leisure.

The Vibal Group is one of those companies that has realized the significance of having online alternatives for their publishing. In partnership with HP, a leading technology provider, Vibal transforms their products and services into a more dynamic state-of-the-art solution that is "beyond printing".

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Yahoo Philippines celebrates 5 years of being in the Philippines by showing that they know how to appreciate the people who have helped them spread the word and who else would that be but the media of course.

Last night, Yahoo Philippines had an event called the High Five Yahoo: An Appreciation Night. High Five because they are already 5 years old in the Philippines and it definitely deserved a high five because in such a short time, they have been able to achieve so much.

Globe to Work Closely with NTC on Fair Use Policy Implementation

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Globe underwent a massive network modernization program two years ago in order to increase capacity and improve network performance. “We now have the most improved network in the country designed for the modern digital lifestyle of Filipinos,“ says Atty. Froilan Castelo, General Legal Counsel of Globe Telecom. 

“We recognize that our customers have varying needs of data usage. Consumer demand for data is steadily growing brought about by changing lifestyles and the influx of smartphones. It is only safe to assume that a consumer’s data use will increase as they start enjoying the various platforms on digital and social media. This is the reason why we invested millions of dollars to modernize our network, built international submarine cable systems, and created customizable product offers to give our customers a superior data experience,” adds Castelo.

Globe first implemented its fair use policy in 2010 covering prepaid calls, texts and data promos. The company enforced the policy for postpaid data plans only last month. Even in the past until today, fair use only affects a small number of subscribers. This is necessary to protect the network against abuse, examples of which come in the form of unli promos meant for consumers but are used for business, text spamming using prepaid unli promos.

Get the Chance to Watch Ken Block Gymkhana with Ellen Adarna

 Wazzup Pilipinas!

Every men become somewhat like a monster at the sight a pretty woman (drooling and eye-popping experience plus a tingling feeling deep within), especially when its as alluring and provocative as Ellen Adarna - men's magazine's favorite cover model and a rather controversial celebrity right now because of her admitted friendship with turning underdog Cedric Lee form the Vhong Navarro and Deniece Cornejo rape, or extortion, case - whatever it was only the three lead characters would know the truth.

That's probably why a media member at the Monster Energy Drink Ken Block's Japan Experience launch held at the Makati Shangri-La hotel couldn't help but try to associate Monster with Cedric Lee thinking she can get away with it. Unfortunately, no answer was given to her out-of-place question (After the warning that all questions should be related to the product and the promo).

Other than introducing Ellen Adarna as Monster Energy drink's brand ambassador, it was also the launch of their promotional event namely Ken Block's Japan Experience where 3 lucky pairs get a chance to join Ellen Adarna to go watch Ken Block Gymkhana in July 2014!

DOTC on MRT Capacity Expansion Project: We Will Defend The Interest Of Millions Of Passengers

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Following the Makati Regional Trial Court’s (RTC) issuance of a “Temporary Order of Protection” which essentially prevents government from adding coaches to the country’s most-heavily congested rail transit line, the Department of Transportation and Communications (DOTC) has assured the Metro Rail Transit III (MRT-3) system’s more than 500,000 passengers that it will defend their interest in court to deliver the long-overdue Light Rail Vehicles (LRVs) at the soonest possible time.

“We will fight for the interest of the hundreds of thousands of MRT-3 riders who have been waiting for more LRVs for too long. At the time when government is finally ready to deliver these projects, the public good is now being held hostage by a private company,” said DOTC Spokesperson Michael Arthur Sagcal.

The court order names the Metro Rail Transit Corporation (MRTC), which owns the MRT-3 facilities, and Metro Rail Transit Holdings II, Inc. (MRTH-II), one of its affiliated companies, as the petitioners for the Temporary Order of Protection.

Don't Be in Such a Hurry to Climb Your Mountain

Wazzup Pilipinas!

The first and only mountain I've climbed so far was Mount Pulag. Many said I should have started with a lesser challenging mountain like Mount Pinatubo but I never chose which one should be my first - there was an opportunity so I grabbed it.

My way to the top was fast because I wanted to catch up with the rest of the group. I never really made much effort to stop for awhile and look at the scenery. There was a schedule to maintain and regardless of the fact that I was so damn tired, sweaty, and thirsty... I had to move on so that the entire group can make it on time. Having to climb with a group also adds some form of motivation on me because I dare not become the weakest link.

The path was toxic, but I endured! Especially during part two of the climb - an early morning trek towards the top trying to make it before sunrise. Suffering from the extreme cold, it was the very first time I felt my body shaking and my teeth quivering relentlessly. The pitch black darkness added more worries as we were only guided by flashlights while following a narrow path.

To Be or Not To Be Obese: That is the Question for Social Responsibility

Wazzup Pilipinas!

What's your take on this?

If given only three choices for drinks: iced tea, soft-drink, or wine - which one would you choose?

Regardless of the reason - health, taste, or appearance - which one deserves a recommendation from you?

To choose the lesser evil, I dare not wait for your answer because it is very obvious. But the focus should be on the most toxic among the three. The product you should avoid entirely! Lessening the intake is not even an option, you should take it out entirely from your diet.

"Kahit ano pang kanta ang i-translate ng isang cola company sa international scene na maging viral ay alam naman natin ang totoo na walang mabuing naidudulot ang soft-drinks sa atin."
No amount of national or international advocacy, social responsibility and awareness campaigns, high-profile endorsers, large donations and relief efforts, employment opportunities, and the likes - can hide the truth that these drinks are harmful to healthy living. The number one source of obesity!

Cook Out 2 Help Out: Burger-Eating Given a New Meaning!

 Wazzup Pilipinas!
"We wanna take this opportunity to thank everyone who dropped by and purchased the delicious burgers prepared by our partners on this second round of Help Out 2 Cook Out last January 24-26 at Power Plant Mall, Rockwell Center, Makati City! You all gave burger-eating a new meaning! Thank you so much!"
The Sunday afternoon at the Cook Out 2 Help Out event at the Powerplant Mall in Rockwell was an adocacy worth doing again and again. There is such a warm and fuzzy feeling deep inside everytime you sincerely make efforts to help out our fellowmen especially those lives who were affected by the Typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan) disaster in the Visayan region.

We may not totally rebuild their shattered lives and properties but it is a worthwhile cause that can amount to greater accomplishments if each and everyone of us will continue to make efforts to run similar causes such as these. Tacloban and the rest of the affected areas still have a lot of rehabilitation necessary to bring back its former glory.

All proceeds from the event will be donated to help rebuild the homes damaged by the typhoon.

Binay Wins a Condo Unit in the Rockwell Raffle

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Am I reading this right? Cong. Abby Binay won your grand raffle? As if they still need additional assets to their burgeoning wealth.

What a coincidence! The congresswoman of the same district where the raffle was organized wins a condominium unit? What an uncanny coincidence that's more likely planted or scripted!

Owwwsss. . . Could it be "lutong macao"? A scheme to justify the bulging assets of the Binays?

Is it a marketing ploy? Knowing that she's one of the owners of a condo there, this will become a boost of value of the properties within the area, not to mention condo sales! Nag-usap usap kaya ang mga sangkot dito?

What a desperate move in order to get away with corruption technicalities. You think Filipinos are stupid enough to believe in this drama and scripted raffle promo? Tell that to the marines! It is too good to be real.
Now we all know how useless it is to even put up the effort of signing a raffle ticket when it's been rigged all along. How typical!

Well at least Senator Len Binay can now text "Tara na sa Condo ko and dala ka ng food!"

Indoor Ultimate Developmental League 2014: Congratulations to the Winners!

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Ultimate is a low-contact team field sport played with a plastic flying disc known as a Frisbee. Points are scored by passing the disc to a teammate in the opposing end zone, similar to an end zone in American football or the in-goal area in rugby. Needless to say, the game is fast-paced and adrenaline-rising as both teams try to out-skill each other using their speed and stamina in manipulating the Frisbee.

Anticipating where the Frisbee will fly off and how they will effectively send it to a team mate without the opposing team blocking its path. Normally its played outdoors so seeing it played in the convenience of a gym was pleasing to those who shy away from sports played under the sun where the elements add further stress and challenge to an already delicate and precision sport.

The Indoor Ultimate Developmental League (IUDL) is a momentous event since this is the very first time an Ultimate Frisbee is played indoors. We are sending our congratulations to all the teams who placed in the first IUDL!

The January 31 and February 1 schedule allowed many to participate as January 31 was declared a holiday because of Chinese New Year and February 1 was a Saturday.
