DOTC Awards MCIA Project to GMR-Megawide

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Following several months of reviewing various legal questions raised by a bidder in connection with the Mactan-Cebu International Airport project, the Department of Transportation and Communications (DOTC) and the Mactan-Cebu International Airport Authority (MCIAA) finally awarded the 25-year concession to the GMR-Megawide Consortium yesterday, 4 April 2014.

“Amidst all the noise drummed up in different forums the past few months, the DOTC has allowed nothing but the law and the country’s interests to matter in awarding the project. Finally, Cebuanos will soon get the world-class airport they deserve – one that will not only boost the province’s economy and tourism industry, but the whole country’s as well,” said DOTC Spokesperson Michael Arthur Sagcal.

“This project should have been done at least a decade ago, so there is no more time to waste. We have resolved all issues, we are ready to defend our decision, and it is now time to push forward on Daang Matuwid by delivering our services to the people,” Sagcal added.

Family Bonding Time at Dusit Thani Manila: A Truly Memorable Staycation

Wazzup Pilipinas!

One of life's simplest pleasures is spending quality time with the ones we love. There are a lot of amazing things that can happen when the family has opportunities to do meaningful things together. Family bonding time strengthens the relationship even further to a level that each and every family member will cherish forever. As they say, "The family that _________ (fill in the blank with anything you want) together, stays together."

It is totally heart-warming when you can easily connect with your kids who appreciate the value of close family ties. I believe that children that do not have a sense of family values are more likely to be influenced by friends that do not necessarily have their best interests at heart. It will always be up to the parents to model expected behaviors inside the family circle and with others in the community, of which the children will eventually emulate. To spend a more intimate weekend with the kids would be the best way to show that spending time with them was truly something special and memorable.

This is the reason why I quickly grabbed the opportunity to bond with the kids after I got an invitation to spend the weekend at the luxurious Dusit Thani Manila. My wife and I were very grateful that we will be able to get the chance to take the time off from our busy schedules, and most of all, spend quality time with our children.

Yolanda Efforts Update: Thousands of Sta. Fe, Leyte Students, Barefoot No More

Wazzup Pilipinas!

More than a thousand barefoot kids and children in tattered shoes and worn out slippers marched toward the expansive school grounds of the Sta. Fe Central School, the biggest school in this district, last Tuesday morning, they diligently fell in line behind designated scouts who carried their special “numbers.”

Unmindful of the searing pre-noon heat, the students came from the 17 schools of Sta. Fe who were chosen to receive premium slip-ons from Skechers donated through Operation Blessing Foundation Philippines.

Before it reached the school, volunteers painstakingly went through the list earlier submitted by the teachers, ensuring that they had the right sizes and carried the huge cartons containing the Skechers slip-ons toward the delivery vans en route to the school.

To spice up the occasion, representatives from the Youth with a Mission (YWAM) even presented a brief puppet show to the delight of children.

The distribution of the Skechers slip-ons was both fun and tedious. Trying the slip-ons to each and every student was a daunting task. But the reward came from the sincerest “Thank Yous” from the students, a tight hug, a big smile and the happy races of some of the students as they clutched their new pair of shoes while others waved them on air.

We chose Spiderman because he is a superhero who shows that we can all be great once we realize the power that we have.”

In addition to this partnership with WWF Philippines, Philips also collaborated with Sun Life Financial—another fervent supporter of green living.

Sun Broad Band Quest 2013 Grand Champion Iktus Launches Self-Titled Album

Wazzup Pilipinas!

I witnessed how they won at the Sun Broad Band Quest 2013 competition held at the Music Museum located in Greenhills, San Juan. I was there when they announced the winner and was so very proud for they truly deserve the spot on top place.

Though the others were a real competition, Iktus delivered their performance very well . Mind you that the performance was done live so it gives you an idea of how great they were to impress the judges and convince each one of them to give them the title of becoming the very first champion of the Sun Broad Band Quest annual search for the best bands in the Philippines. They will soon hand over another crown to the next winner sometime probably this November as revealed by Sun Broadband Marketing Senior Manager, Karen Capellan.

Their self-titled album launch is their momentous glory of finally showing off their musical talents to the world now immortalized as a concrete album under MCA Music, Inc. with their proud faces smiling on the album cover. It is an accomplishment well deserving of a celebration. Thus the album launch in the form of a bloggers night last March 27, 2014 held at Flare located in Metrowalk Commercial Complex.

Captain America The Winter Soldier Special Blocked Screening from PMCM Events Management Movie Review

Wazzup Pilipinas!

The very first Marvel Avenger that wears the colors and images of the American flag strikes the big screen for the second time with Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

A special blocked screening was held recently last March 26, 2014 by PMCM Events Management at teh EDSA Shangri-La Shang CinePlex Cinema 2, and was attended by a huge crowd all obviously fans of the red, white and blue star-spangled costumed superhero.

We've seen the Avenger kick butts on the first movie but here on the sequel, we now see Captain America had become tougher and truly a badass fighter.

Uh-oh...Spoiler alert after this sentence so consider this as a warning before you read any further. You've been warned so if you haven't watched the  movie yet. Again, I repeat, there's a lot of spoilers following this sentence so don't blame me if your viewing pleasure got spoiled because you've been warned again and again. Final warning before you click on Read More, spoilers alert incoming.

Menarini Launches "Commit to Control Premature Ejaculation" Advocacy

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Now this is a topic that is least talked about even among families, friends or peers. You can easily count the ones that will be courageous enough to admit or reveal having difficulties keeping it "hard" and "long." Not too many will dare consult a doctor because that would seem to be so shameful and humiliating. I would probably just keep it to myself rather than announce to the world that I am suffering from premature ejaculation.

But wait! The problem is not solely limited to you. Your partner also deserves to be pleased with your sexual performance, and whether we like it or not, a sexual relationship is always part of the love life between couples. When one is not satisfied, then that may result to many lonely nights.

We do understand that love can go beyond the primal and basic instincts but a relationship is better when shared at its finest. Just like how an advertisement will ask "How much do you love your wife?" You'll do more than just take vitamins or food supplements to satisfy her sexual desires.

Menarini, the world's largest Italian biopharmaceutical company in the world, launches the "Commit to Control PE" advocacy to help couples overcome the problems of premature ejaculation by promoting awareness. The sexual dysfunction suffered by 1 out of 3 men should no longer be denied and kept in secrets because Menarini is here to help.

Johnny Alegre Affinity Stories Album Launch

Wazzup Pilipinas!

The album Stories by Johnny Alegre Affinity is now out in record bars AstroPlus and Odyssey plus on digital distribution via iTunes and

The Stories album contains the most memorable performances from Affinity's first two recordings: 2005's Jazzhound and 2007's Eastern Skies.

I guess this kind of music is highly appreciated by professionals at their 30s, as per Johnny Alegre's statement when I asked for their target audience, and those that appreciate music without the vocals.

The youth may have a hard time adding this selections to their album playlist but it is these kind of music that elevates OPM into a level much higher than the novelty songs that are banking on the popularity of personalities that we see most of the time on TV, or probably shows, concerts and other gigs.

But basically, one has to marvel on the effort of our Filipino music artists, composers and producers in producing quality work and masterpieces but with only a select number of audience or market.

Asia Pacific Youth to Business Forum: Youth Dreaming for a Greater Asia Pacific

Wazzup Pilipinas!

“There is so much out there to conquer and no matter where you come from, and no matter how small your beginnings may be, you can never be too small to dream big,” the first Apprentice Asia winner Jonathan Yabut told over 500 delegates of international organization AIESEC’s Asia Pacific Youth to Business Forum (APY2B) last March 24, 2014 at the SMX Convention Center, SM Aura Premier, Taguig City.

The Economics major tried to instil the importance of preparedness to the young delegates of Asia Pacific who have the passion to be the successful leaders of tomorrow. Yabut emphasized that ”preparation breeds familiarity and familiarity breeds confidence. When you’re confident you become this unstoppable force that makes you think no matter what the problem is, you’re going to be number one.”

APY2B revolved around Values-based Leadership that focused on identifying common Asia Pacific virtues and ideals that can be used in transforming a better region that thrives with transparency, global competence, and youth empowerment.

“For the first time, we decided that the Youth to Business Forum should be held individually in the different regions of the globe because each region has its own dominant social problem that all people in that part of the world can relate to and would like to address,” AIESEC International Vice President for Public Relations Cassie Ruggiero said.

International Youth Leaders Conference 2014: Ending Cycles of Social Problems with Leadership Legacies

Wazzup Pilipinas!

“There should be an end to this cycle of corruption, and that end could be you,” Senator Miriam Defensor-Santiago told over 500 young delegates in AIESEC’s International Youth Leaders Conference (IYLC) 2014 last March 22, 2014 at the Samsung Hall, SM Aura Premier, Taguig City.

The Senate Committee head on Foreign Relations encouraged the Asia Pacific youth to become leaders with the purpose of serving and adding value to others while upholding the values of trust, respect, determination, and excellence.

“Some leaders are not born but are made. You, in conclusion, can make yourself a leader. Each person has the potential to make a difference and build a legacy” the iconic senator said.

The one-day youth summit focused on fostering self-leadership with engaging activities such as the panel discussion, leadership café, and youth rally where delegates shared their leadership experiences and pledged the creation of individual legacies towards self and social change.

“The youth wants to work independently and are very competitive. But with people who have the same advocacies and beliefs, there is more impact. We have the idealism, we have the energy while we’re young,” Social Entrepreneurship advocate Noreen Bautista said.

Asia Pacific Global Village: A Festival Like No Other

Wazzup Pilipinas!

It was a colorful festivity of more than 24 national cultures in one event.

The Asia Pacific Global Village (AP GV) bridged the Asian region and some countries from Oceania and Latin America to celebrate culture and globalization last March 22, 2014 at the Samsung Hall, SM Aura Premier, Taguig City.

As the world’s largest youth network that provides a leadership platform through exchange programs to over 120 countries, AIESEC hosted AP GV to promote cultural diversity and relativism, as well as individual nationalism and tourism.

“We brought all these young delegates from all over Asia to let the people see how diverse the world really is. But more importantly we wanted to highlight the interesting differences of humanity to discover and emphasize that our core isn’t entirely different at all,” AIESEC President Audrey Elumba said.

Traveling with a Purpose: Indulge in the Culture and Way of Life

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Traveling around the world is undeniably part of each and everyone’s bucketlist. However, it shouldn’t begin and end with hopping on a plane with a destination in mind.

It’s so much better to indulge in the culture and their way of life; being ridiculously open to appreciating a country’s traditions and lifestyle while still being able to cherish your own.

That’s how one can become more than a tourist by gaining experiences that can’t be encapsulated by mere photographs.

Some even let themselves be cloaked with empathy towards a different society that enables them to become young Philippine ambassadors, showcasing Filipino values and talent abroad as they try to help and create positive impact in countries like China, Germany, Czech Republic, Brazil, Romania, India, and many others by involving themselves in social projects and organizations.

It may sound as if it’s too good to be true but international student-run organization AIESEC has been making it possible for the Filipino youth through their Global Citizen and Global Talent Programs.

AIESEC is present in 113 countries and is known for their holistic world-class and global leadership platform and extraordinary socio-cultural exchange programs.

LifeScience Center for Wellness and Preventive Medicine: Pioneering the Food Intolerance Test

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Your friendly neighborhood pambansang blogger of the Philippines is becoming a fitness and health buff. Yeah, I'm sincere with those words. Ever since my shirt size increased from a medium to an extra large, and I grew a beer belly even though I do not drink at all, and worsts is the unwanted growth of a second chin more popularly known as double chin....well I think you can imagine how horrified I was when one day I had the bad luck of looking into a man-size mirror and realized all that food and restaurant review made me look like a bullfrog.

I am actually relieved getting to be invited in health and wellness event. I guess everything that happens were really meant to be....or probably because being fit and healthy has become a fad for many...and a sign of opulence for some. Frankly, some treat the healthy lifestyle as a trademark of affluence since it is expensive to buy organic and "healthy" foods. After all, when you're living in a dump, you can't afford to be choosy with your food. Whatever comes, you grab it and eat it.

Now for those that can afford to buy well-balanced meal alternatives, there are many centers with trained experts that are now offering the healthy living lifestyle. The argument is that the cost of buying selected food choices is a lot cheaper in the long run compared to getting weary, looking ugly and falling sick in bed.

There is this terminology called food intolerance that would somehow provide you with the appropriate information towards a goal of keeping healthy.

LifeScience can help Filipinos get their right nutrition through a better understanding of food intolerance and how to benefit from FIT in meeting health goals and preventing health issues, how to eat healthy and present solutions to food intolerances. You'll be surprise that the food you once considered healthy may do the opposite for you if done the wrong way.

Celebrating Blackout Year End Bash with the Philippine Junior Marketing Association

Wazzup Pilipinas!

It was definitely a night of pure F-U-N and P-A-R-T-Y last Saturday at the BLACKOUT PARTY held at One Esplanade in Pasay City. The Philippine Junior Marketing Association together with other sponsors organized this event for all Marketing Students from different schools.

Electric Vehicle Industry Needs The Infrastructure And More

Wazzup Pilipinas!

The recently-concluded 3rd Philippine Electric Vehicle Summit showed that putting the electric vehicle into the mainstream of the Philippine auto industry needs a lot of things, foremost among them the infrastructure and the technology. Add to that some incentives for those pioneering in this sunshine industry.

Rommel Juan, president of the Electric Vehicle Association of the Philippines (eVAP) says that to be able to do this, we have to plant the seeds now. “Together, let us all help in removing all road blocks and collectively help to facilitate, if not even accelerate, the growth of the Philippine EV industry”.

One of the biggest roadblocks is technology. Nilo Pena of the DOST-PCIEERD pointed out that science and technology initiatives are now sadly lacking in infrastructure such as advanced materials testing laboratories, auto parts & components testing facilities and vehicle research and testing laboratories. These they hope to be able to provide in the future.

Mr. Toru Tokushige, president of Terra Motors agrees and cites that a very important factor in EV success is the battery, specifically on the need for new technologies to reduce its cost while enhancing battery life and performance and the way it is charged.

Wazzup Pilipinas!

The youth that you see dancing to a few popular music beats is our future entrepreneurs and businessmen who will soon lead and make up our economy. They are our future business and thought leaders that will soon shape the world.

Just like their previous International Youth Leaders Conference (IYLC) 2014 event a few days ago, the Asia Pacific Youth to Business Forum (APY2B) 2014 organized by AIESEC started off with the traditional series of dance moves where these young leaders showed off some of their awesome moves with very little inhibitions and a lot of motivation because they are after all among their peers.

Throwdown: Road to R16 - Popping Locking All-Style (1 vs 1 Battles)

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Your friendly neighborhood pambansang blogger was invited to attend the elimination rounds for the R16 Philippines event. At first when I saw the poster, I thought the words "popping", "locking" and "all-style" were simply adjectives used to define the dance battles, but when the elimination rounds started I immediately realized it meant three styles of dance techniques.

Many registered to try their luck in winning the elimination rounds and getting the opportunity to battle at the ultimate dance battle events happening at a bigger venue for many spectators to witness, and a chance to represent the Philippines at a competition to be held outside the country competing against other representatives coming from different countries.

Trusted Wikipedia explains that "popping" is a street dance and one of the original funk styles based on the technique of quickly contracting and relaxing muscles to cause a jerk in the dancer's body, referred to as a pop or a hit. This is done continuously to the rhythm of a song in combination with various movements and poses.

Gone are the days when academic requirements are the biggest thing happening in your life. In just a few months you will be scanning the job boards, finally looking for your first job as a graduate.

“Most new graduates feel nervous when it comes to their first few job interviews. They are hopeful but at the same time anxious. One of the things to remember is self-presentation because when you look good, confidence follows,” comments Philips Consumer Lifestyle Business Development Manager for Personal Care, Ms. Pia Umayam.

For men, Ms. Umayam suggests a polished and cleanly-shaven appearance. “How a person appears in an interview can be very crucial to the success of an application. A lot of hiring managers say that looking inappropriate is one of their top turnoffs when considering candidates. For men, being cleanly-shaven can make or break the impression they are trying to make.”

The Secret to a Smooth, Clean Shave is to go Electric with Philips AquaTouch

Wazzup Pilipinas!

When it comes to truly good grooming, a smooth shave is a must for men, especially for business meetings, religious gatherings, or a special date. But a lot of men have grown wary of razors—it’s a hassle to put on and wash off shaving cream, a burden to replace rusty blades, and literally quite a pain to suffer nicks and cuts.

For a fast, easy and pain-free way to get a killer shave, it’s best to go electric. And with the Philips AquaTouch wet-and-dry shavers, you can get a smooth, clean shave—even while in the shower.

The Philips AquaTouch comes in two models, the AT890 and AT750, which are both designed to give a comfortable dry shave and a refreshing wet shave. The AquaTouch features an inbuilt Aquatec seal which makes the shaver fully waterproof and optimized for use with shaving gel or foam. This means enhanced skin comfort and minimal skin irritation.

The Philips AquaTouch also has rounded low-friction protection caps that adjust automatically to the curves of your face, as well as a Super Lift & Cut feature that lifts hairs away from the skin before cutting them to guarantee a close shave.

Lisita Promises All-Action Fight vs Kawanago in One FC Rise of Heroes

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Australian featherweight contender Rob “Ruthless” Lisita has promised a great, all-action fight against former Legend FC Featherweight champion Yusuke Kawanago, a battle “which the fans will truly enjoy,” on May 2 in ONE Fighting Championship’s Rise of Heroes at the Mall of Asia (MOA) Arena.

“Fans can expect ruthless aggression, a dog fight, a good scrap,” Lisita said as he seeks revenge against his former tormentor who won via a close decision when the two brawled in August 2012 under another MMA organization.

After that fight, which Lisita believed he won, the Australian has won three in a row, all by way of stoppage. In his last bout, he was the first fighter to ever beat Japanese mixed martial arts legend “Lion” Takeshi Inoue via stoppage.

He said MMA fans will enjoy it more this time. “Our first fight was good; we have both improved, we are gonna trade punches, and I always come to fight. It’s gonna be a great fight.”

Lisita sees his winning streak intact after May 2 as he predicts a victory over Kawanago. “I’m gonna put my fist on his chin and get my hand raised. I believe I have the power to knock him out; but it’s a fight anything can happen. I will do my best, and I think my best is better than his best.”
