Denim Unbound with Nico Bulzico as Brand Ambassador for SM Men Denim at SM Supermalls

Wazzup Pilipinas!

At a venue filled with younger Millennials, my companion and I were feeling fashion bloggers covering the newest #SMMenDenim ambassador, Nico Bolzico, along with the SM Youth ambassadors at the #DenimUnbound event of SM Supermalls.

Together with SM Youth ambassadors like Tommy Esguerra, Kaila Estrada, Richard Juan, Janna Tee, Kyle Perry, Macauly Lofgren and Erika Kristensen, and also with #SMYouthGoSee Season 2 ex-contestants namely Chelsea Manalo, Ethan Salvador, Mariah Jowett, Justin Llarena and Klaudio Gutierrez, we have Nico Bolzico now on the runway as he is launched as the newest SM Men ambassador for #SMMenDenim at the #DenimUnbound event held at SM Makati.

For those who do not know Nico Bolzico, he is the husband of Solenn Heussaff, celebrity, entrepreneur and model as well.

Find out what Nico whispered into my ear when I attempted to interview him after the launch.....hehehe ..It was a shocking revelation...too much to handle for little ol' me.

Seriously, I asked the guy on how often he washes his jeans, and he said "I don't think I even wash my jeans." or something to that effect. I'm sure he was just joking but many could really relate to the fact that most of us use our jeans or denim for several days, even weeks, before we send them to the laundry.

Be sure to check out the video interview we did amidst the very noisy venue brought about by DJs playing loud music to set the mood.

Launching the New YZF-R15 at Yamaha R-Day

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Yamaha Motor Philippines Inc. continues to share global racing excellence in the local circuits of the Philippines. The latest offering to the country is the arrival of the all new YZF-R15; a re-mastered version of its predecessor made more efficient in speed and style.

In true racing fashion the launch was done at the Carmona Racing Circuit for an exciting event called the R-Day. Only the 2nd edition of its kind, the occasion offered exclusive opportunities for those in attendance. A special racing clinic was held by Yamaha Riding Academy Executive Instructor, Yoshiaki Kato for a group of 45 riders who used the all new YZF-R15. That batch also included Media Guests that had their turn on the track as well. After the test ride, there was a fun race for the Clinic participants and the Media.

The official launch happened right on the start/finish line where Yamaha Ambassador Gab Valenciano rode the all new YZF-R15 alongside racing stalwarts Masato Fernando and Kyle Paz. After taking the machine for a spin in its debut, Gab talked about the reliability and quality of the new motorcycle.

Then it was time for a true test of the all new YZF-R15 in exhibition match that was composed of all star riders. Aside from Fernando and Paz they were joined by James Mendez,Romer Corbe,Vrei Ar Suba,Herbert Lopez,J.E Inguito,Aljon Valencia,Rizaldy Canare,Tracy Soyangco,McDon Sande,Niel Jan Centeno ,R.R Espiritu, Jacq Buncio, and Bethany Tolentino. A thrilling match was witnessed between the best riders in the country as they excelled beyond their usual limits with the upgrades that made the all new YZF-R15 more aerodynamic, quicker, and technologically advanced. It was a tight race between “The Chairman” Masato Fernando and 15 year old sensation Kyle Paz but the latter had to retire from the race after an unfortunate spill he took on the back end of the race that yielded the victory to the younger Paz.

This arrival re-ignites the dominance of the R-Series and is a statement to why Blu is Fast; a testament that is worn by Yamaha’s MotoGP riders Valentino Rossi and Maverick Vinales. The all new YZF-R15 has an SRP of 164,000 and comes in Race Blu, Raven Black, and Matter Red. Available in all Yamaha 3S Shops and Multi-brand stores Nationwide.

Experts Share Key Trends In PH Real Estate


Wazzup Pilipinas!

The rise of millennial travelers, Filipinos’ increasing spending power, and aggressive expansion of commercial property developers in cities outside Metro Manila—these are just some of the key trends discussed during the Asia Pacific Real Estate Investment Summit Thursday. Lamudi Philippines ( managing director Jacqueline van den Ende moderated the discussion on these key trends.


According to Lourdes Alano, vice-president for leasing at Robinsons Land Corp., key trends in retail include expansion outside Metro Manila due to rising land values within the capital, the rise of community malls, expansion of convenience store chains driven in part by the 24-hour BPO economy, and the increasing competition due to new retail channels such as podium retail-space in mixed-used condo developments and online channels.


Al Legaspi, chief operating officer of Ayala Land Hotels and Resorts, said that the 10 million foreign visitors target is a bit of a stretch, given that the country has so far only managed to attract half of that number. However, despite this domestic and foreign tourism is growing. Cebu, for example, experiences plenty of demand in hotel rooms, according to Legapsi, where occupancy rates in Ayala’s hotels in the city reaching 80 percent.

Jewelmer 2015 Annual Gala: A Journey to the Extraordinary

Wazzup Pilipinas!

We were invited to attend the annual gala night of Jewelmer, a Filipino jeweler brand whose pieces are sold in mainstream stores worldwide, and supplies golden pearls to many international designer brands.

The Jewelmer brand name, put together by Filipino scion Manuel Cojuangco and French pilot and pearl entrepreneur Jacques Branellec, was coined from the English word "jewel" and French word "mer" which means "sea" in English. It is a partnership made several years ago that could be called a divine providence of which eventually resulted to another widely-recognized brand every Filipino should be proud of.

The annual gala was held at the Manila Peninsula Hotel on October 20, 2015 dubbed as "A Journey to the Extraordinary" where the company flaunted new priced pieces of their jewelry collection and new video presentations featuring how Jewelmer came to be.

With the goal of informing the youth about the ASEAN initiatives and the ASEAN Economic Community (AEC) as agreed by the tourism ministers in January 2015, the summit provided a venue for cultural exchange, immersion, and appreciation. It also raised the level of awareness among the ASEAN youth on issues pertaining to cultural preservation, environmental protection, and socio-economic growth. The activity likewise established a strong foundation for the ASEAN youth in the tourism industry and highlighted the equality of men and women in the tourism industry.

Presentations were made on the travel and tourism industry situation in their respective countries. Group workshops ensued on three main topics: 1) Promote ASEAN as a single destination, 2) Enhance human resource development and quality tourism, 3) Ensure sustainable and inclusive tourism.

Social Enterprise and Policy: Enabling Inclusive Economies

Wazzup Pilipinas!

It is widely acknowledged that social enterprises play an important role in addressing social, economic and environmental challenges, in fostering inclusive growth and in increasing social inclusion because they aim to pursue the general interest benefit communities. Social enterprises contribute to local community development by creating opportunities in urban and rural depressed areas where there is little prospect for wealth creation as well as provide support for vulnerable individuals who may have otherwise had no chance for employment.

Supporting social enterprise creation and development may allow public policies to meet employment and other social and economic challenges in a more efficient and effective way than if they rely on the public or private sectors alone, therefore improving the spending of public money.

This conference aims to look at how public policy can support social enterprises through – the promotion of social entrepreneurship, building of legal, regulatory and fiscal frameworks, provision of sustainable finance and the offer of business development services and support structures.

The Social Enterprise and Policy: Enabling Inclusive Economies will be held at the Escaler Hall, Ateneo de Manila University on October 19 - 20 2015
