Fit Filipino Movement challenges the Philippines to lose 1 million lbs.

Premier wellness and lifestyle coaches, Jim and Toni Saret, challenge the nation to fight the battle of the bulge this 2017 in the Fit Filipino (FitFil) 1 Million Lbs. National Weight Loss Challenge.

FitFil is slated to be the biggest on-ground and online fitness campaign in the country. The program will run for six months and aims to encourage everyone to pledge and lose the pounds. Even before its official launch, medical associations, and public and private sectors have already answered the call and made their pledges. Individual, squads, corporations, and even cities are encouraged to join the cause toward a healthier and fitter lifestyle.

This national challenge is the first step to the Fit Filipino Movement’s vision of one million fit Filipinos by 2020. According to the Food and Nutrition Research Institute (FNRI) Director Mario V. Capanzana, “Three in 10 Filipinos are overweight or obese. Of these three, one overweight adult can be found in the National Capital Region.”

“We want Filipinos to see that getting fit and healthy can be easy and fun when you have the whole nation rallying together for this cause,” said Coach Jim Saret.

This was seconded by Coach Toni Saret. “Wellness starts with the little changes in our lifestyle choices. We can start with better eating habits or a simple 4-minute workout daily,” she added.

Among the first organizations that pledged support is the Philippine Heart Association (PHA). “Prevention is still the best step to be in tip-top shape. Following PHA’s 52100 Health Lifestyle (which stands for five daily servings of fruits and vegetables, two hours of screen time, one hour of exercise daily, zero sugary sweets, and 0 smoking) is one way of supporting the Fit Filipino Challenge,” said PHA President Dr. Raul Lapitan.

The Philippine Medical Association (PMA) is also taking on the challenge. “Obesity needs to be addressed. Proper nutrition and fitness can reverse that. We encourage everyone to join the Fit Filipino Movement,” said PMA President Dr. Irineo Bernardo III.

Registration is free, and will start on June 5 until December 5, 2017, at www.fitfil.ph.

Interested participants can also visit select Robinsons Supermarket every Saturday to register and submit their official weight. After their final weigh-in, participants can avail of a reward if they achieve their wellness goal.

Beverage giant, Coca-Cola, brings innovation to a whole new level with the introduction of the first water – flavored with real fruit juice, in the Philippines – Wilkins Delight!

On April 5, the Company officially introduced the newest addition to the growing water portfolio of the Wilkins Brand. Wilkins Delight is an exciting water brand for young adults and anyone who want more than just water. It is just the right kind of light; made from pure drinking water from your most trusted water brand, Wilkins, and infused with fruit flavors from real fruit.

“Young adults hate boredom. They want their lives to be interesting and colorful.”, said Coca-Cola Philippines Vice President for Marketing Stephan Czypionka. “[They] want to see new places, meet new people and taste new colorful products that are not only healthy and hydrate, but also entertain their taste buds.”

It’s a colorful, fruity twist that hydrates your body naturally, while at the same time excites your palette and teases your vision with fun light colors of amber – for the Apple infused flavor, pink – for that hint sweet taste of Pomelo flavor, and orange – for that fizzy Orange twist. The hydrating burst of flavors in the new Wilkins Delight will surprise Pinoy millenials to break-free from the monotony by adding color to their routinely lives.

“This is why today we create a new generation of water – a unique fusion of all the natural benefits from your no. 1 trusted water brand Wilkins (Pure) and all the joyful goodness and fun extracted from real fruit– great refreshing taste, amazing colors, and an endless option of interesting flavors from fruits!,” added Czypionka.

“As someone who’s from the beauty pageant industry, I need to take good care of my health and my complexion by drinking safe and pure drinking water. With Wilkins Delight, drinking water gets even more fun as it helps rejuvenate me — keeping my skin healthy. The good thing about Wilkins Delight is that it comes in three exciting fruit flavors. All three variants of Wilkins Delight are delicious, although my personal favorite is the apple flavored one. There’s definitely one for everyone!”, Kylie says.

Matteo also shared how important water is in his every day routine especially with his busy schedule as an artist, and a sports enthusiast —

“As an actor, singer and triathlete, water is always a must for me to help me stay focused, refreshed and energized. Wilkins has always been my no. 1 go to water for hydration. Now, drinking water doesn’t have to be boring because of Wilkins Delight! With the benefits of safe and pure drinking water of Wilkins (Pure) combined with the infused flavor from real fruits, my daily water routine just got more colorful with Wilkins Delight!”, Matteo added.

Spreading the love for reading among Filipinos is at the core of National Book Store (NBS). This year, the country’s favorite book store is celebrating 75 years of creating a growing nation of readers and being a strong advocate for education.

As part of the festivities, NBS recently launched the Read Out Loud Challenge (ROLC) on Facebook and Instagram, aiming to promote the love of reading among Filipinos while supporting a good cause. The mechanics are simple. Post a video of yourself reading out loud an excerpt from your favorite book and challenge 3 other people to do it. When you upload to either Facebook or Instagram, add the hashtag #ReadOutLoudChallenge and tag National Book Store (@nbsalert).

For every 75 videos posted, the NBS Foundation will set up a library in a public school, complete with Project Aklat racks that consist of DepEd-approved books. Project Aklat is an initiative started back in 2006 by the NBS Foundation, and 400 libraries have been set up since then. Now, with the ongoing ROLC campaign, NBS aims to set up 100 libraries nationwide.

With such a worthy cause, it’s no surprise that celebrities and authors have taken on the ROLC. Leading them is no less than the founder of NBS and an advocate for literacy, Mrs. Socorro Ramos or Nanay Coring, as she is fondly called.

17522075_10212570448477310_1486637545_o

While the ROLC will promote and support Project Aklat, the NBS Foundation will also launch the 8th year of Project Aral this April 7,2017 in all NBS branches nationwide. Project Aral aims to visit and help over 150 communities who lack basic school necessities. That’s why in this year’s Project Aral, there will be two different kits: The first kit which costs only 25 pesos contains 2 notebooks, 2 pencils, a sharpener, and an eraser. The second kit costs 50 pesos and contains 2 notebooks, 2 pencils, a sharpener, an eraser, and a pair of slippers – a great gift for children who currently have to make their way to school barefoot. But whatever kit you purchase will surely bring a smile to many Filipino children.

These are just a few of the activities in store for Filipinos as part of National Book Store’s 75th anniversary. There will be more to come, but for now, celebrate with NBS by accepting the Read Out Loud Challenge to spread the love for reading and help set up libraries nationwide. Time to bring your favorite lines to life! Shop online at nationalbookstore.com.

Fuel exciting journeys this summer with Shell

Summer is all about experiences that will fuel your energy and recharge you from the daily city grind. It’s all about taking that well-deserved break and escaping reality – even for just a weekend. Summer connotes exciting adventures and exploring new places, but the fun and excitement doesn’t need to start when you hit that beach or that mountain trail. It should actually begin the moment you step in your car and get on that road. Be it with a perfect road trip playlist, an ice-cold drink, or even just peace of mind knowing that your car is in tip-top condition to get you through the drive; that comfort and thrill of excitement knowing you’re on your way begins your summer journey.

 

Pilipinas Shell knows what summer is all about as it ushers in the hottest but most exciting season in the country. Through its various refreshing products, reliable service, and summer customer delight offerings, Pilipinas Shell is surely, the perfect partner on the road.

 

Recharge your summer road trip

 

In a summer-themed drive dubbed “Recharge Your Summer Road Trip,” Shell kicked off their summer offerings by taking the media on a relaxing yet exciting whole-day escapade. Throughout the 44-kilometer drive to the Southern parts of the metro in MINI vehicles powered by Shell V-Power Nitro+, media participants took on different challenges and experienced refreshing fare that featured what every summer traveler needed and looked for during their summer road trips.

 

The adventure started off with a scrumptious and hefty breakfast from Deli2Go’s range of dishes at Shell South Luzon Expressway 1 station. Participants were then divided into teams and, in keeping with Shell’s values and commitment to safety and health, were briefed on safety guidelines on the road and for the days’ activities. Featured, were the media’s exclusive Recharge Challenge Passport, which allowed participants to rack up points for every completed pit stop challenge, and Shell’s Summer Journey Card, an instant-prize card available for all customers when they gas-up and shop at any Shell station, were also distributed to the media.

 

Throughout the day, participants faced challenges that most travelers encountered on the road and were tasked to find the most efficient solution for each. From necessity shopping lists, to finding the perfect restroom for nature’s call, to knowing products and services that can ease your drive, and experiencing refreshing food and drinks to fuel your energy, participants experienced it all and came to understand Shell as the perfect stop and best partner anyone can have with them. Knowing there’s a Shell oasis up ahead puts any traveler’s mind at ease as they traverse the long and dusty roads.

 

“As part of Pilipinas Shell’s efforts in making each journey better for every Filipino, we launched a summer campaign that aims to demonstrate the recharging and exciting drive that Shell can offer especially during the summer season. To launch this campaign, we held this drive to encourage motorists to always be prepared on the road by fueling up with quality products and visiting a one-stop-shop that has everything they need for the journey ahead,” said Pilipinas Shell Vice President for Retail, Anthony Lawrence Yam.

 

Fuel your summer excitement with Shell

 

To make summer road trips better for its customers, Pilipinas Shell has a lot more in store for Filipino motorists throughout the season. Apart from its quality products and services, customers can also enjoy delicious snacks and refreshing beverages from Shell Select & Deli2Go, as well as earn points by using their SM Advantage cards for every purchase at Shell. To fully make the most out of every visit, customers will be issued their own Shell Summer Journey Cards which they can use to collect stamps upon each purchase to win exciting prizes from Shell, such as refreshing drinks or a chance to win a trip to a summer destination.

 

By providing quality fuel products and services to motorists around the world, Shell gained its foothold as a global leader in power and energy that pioneers next generation technology in developing new energy sources for a reliable energy mix, producing smarter products, as well as promoting its smarter use, building smarter infrastructure and providing energy efficient engineering solutions that ultimately promote clean & efficient transport, sustainable mobility, energy efficiency and a new energy future to address the energy challenge.

‘Groufie’ era begins with the new OPPO F3 Plus

Selfies will never be the same now with the whole gang in the picture!

Mobile technology brand OPPO just launched its flagship dual selfie camera phone, the F3 Plus—the first-ever smartphone with a wide-angle dual front camera to easily accommodate ‘groufies’ in a single shot. The new phone will be out in Philippine stores as well as in India, Vietnam, Malaysia, and Indonesia beginning April 1.

“Since OPPO started the Selfie Revolution in the Philippines with the F1 Series, we’ve gone through incredible growth especially when we became the country’s second bestselling smartphone in 2016,” OPPO Philippines Brand Marketing Manager Stephen Cheng said. “We are very excited to see the F3 Plus start a new trend in groufies and reinforce our position as the Selfie Expert.”

“The F3 Plus was developed for both selfie lovers and photography buffs who want a smartphone that lets them take stunning shots wherever they are, no matter the time of day. Our newest camera phone packs state-of-the-art hardware and software in a sleek body to deliver outstanding performance and style, perfect for the urban lifestyle,” Cheng added.

Effortless from selfie to groufie

Set to be the ultimate Selfie Expert, the F3 Plus builds upon the technology of the earlier OPPO F1s to deliver outstanding selfie photography. The new smartphone sports a similar 16-megapixel (MP) selfie camera with a 1/3-inch sensor for clear image results even in low light, as well as an f/2.0 aperture for depth-of-field aesthetic.

The difference lies in the additional secondary camera. This 8MP groufie-camera has a wide 120-degree angle—105 percent larger than the regular 80-degree lens field of view— which allows more people to fit inside the frame. The wide-angle shot is also complemented by a 6P lens to minimize distortion.

Ease of use has been carefully designed into the front camera’s functionality to reflect OPPO’s “user-oriented” philosophy. The built-in Smart Facial Recognition, for instance, notifies users to switch to “Groufie” mode when more than three people are detected. This makes the switch from selfie to groufie effortless while keeping image quality stable.

The new smartphone still comes with the brand’s pioneering image editing software, Beautify 4.0, which offers a range of beautification modes for a flawless look in every selfies and groufies.

17668644_120300002857219928_1025618725_o

Built for professional photography

Significant improvements have also been made for the rear-facing camera. Co-developed by Sony, the 16MP back camera is now powered by a customized 1/2.8-inch IMX398 sensor for fast focusing speed, outstanding noise reduction, and advanced low-light performance—ideal for serious photography.

The sensor has been developed using dual-phase autofocus (DUAL PDAF) technology to double the pixel array area, which is composed of photodiodes that determine the camera’s point of focus. This increases focusing speeds by 40 percent even in less-than-ideal lighting conditions. Together with a large f/1.7 aperture, the sensor enables the rear camera to capture clear and breathtaking photos.

Flawless inside and out

The F3 Plus is engineered with hardware designed to support its powerful front and rear cameras. The phone’s octa-core processor is backed by a 4GB RAM and 64GB ROM to ensure speed, while OPPO’s ColorOS 3.0 optimizes performance to lower energy consumption.

A built-in 4000mAh battery provides more than 284 hours of standby time for whole-day use. OPPO’s proprietary and industry-leading rapid VOOC Charging Solution also cuts charging duration by four times compared with standard units; even five minutes on the plug is enough for a continuous two-hour call.

Dual SIM users will be glad to know that the F3 Plus includes a double-slot card tray for holding two Nano 4GSIM cards. The second slot can be used for a Micro SD card to expand storage up to 256GB.

Lightning-Fast Touch Access also unlocks the phone in just 0.2 seconds—the fastest in the market. The same scanning technology allows users to assign fingerprints to quickly launch phone numbers and apps. An Avast-based virus scanner further adds protection to keep phone data secure.

Exquisite craftsmanship for an upscale look

At the core of every OPPO phone is the brand’s belief in “design excellence.” Casing the F3 Plus is a sleek metal unibody that gives the phone an elegant form either in luxurious Black or opulent Gold. The back shell also comes with an innovative ultra-fine six-string antenna to exude a more upscale appearance. But beyond aesthetics, the body is sculpted for proper hand grip so users can take selfies with comfort.

To match the polished look is the phone’s durability. The six-inch display screen is made of 2.5D Corning Gorilla Glass 5 to resist damage. Pre-applied protective coating further makes the screen scratch-proof.

The F3 Plus in Gold is coming to the Philippines this April 1 with the suggested retail price of P23,990. Pre-orders, along with a free Bluetooth headset and a selfie stick, will be available in all OPPO concept stores and selected dealer stores nationwide as well as at the brand’s official online shop in Lazada from March 24 to 31.

Shoppers can get OPPO’s latest Selfie Expert via Home Credit through a nine-month installment plan at zero percent interest. They can also watch out for Globe’s exclusive offer for OPPO F3 Plus, with date and details to be announced soon.

About OPPO

For the last 10 years, OPPO has been focusing on manufacturing camera phones, while innovating mobile photography technology breakthroughs. OPPO started the era of selfie beautification, and was the first brand to launch smartphones with 5MP and 16MP front cameras. OPPO was also the first brand to introduce the motorized rotating camera, the Ultra HD feature and the 5x Dual Camera Zoom technology.

Rooted in its theme “Unlock the Ultimate Ride,” this year’s Honda Scooter Fest features special activities such as Honda Gen-S motorcade and Spot My Ride Honda Scooter Accessorizing Contest, among others. But the most exciting revelation today is the launch of the ultimate Gen-S Scooter, the All-New Honda Click150i. It is Honda’s flagship scooter that has the highest displacement among the existing Gen-S Scooter models: the Click125i, the all-new BeAT, and the Zoomer-X.

The All-New Click150i also features an advanced Answer Back System that allows the rider to find this scooter with ease. By simply pressing the button of the key remote, the scooter will respond in either one of three different tones, and blink with a light signal.

Ultimately, the crowning glory of the All-New Honda Click150i is its overall build that exhibits sophisticated design and features, and gives the rider confidence to conquer the road.

HPI President Mr. Daiki Mihara is optimistic about the introduction of the All-New Honda Click150i to the young generation of riders, citing HPI’s passion for excellence and solid commitment to share the joy of riding to all Gen-S riders.
