Guess who joined the Flip Side? Meet the top content creators and trailblazers who have joined #TeamGalaxy

Samsung has officially launched its highly anticipated Galaxy foldable devices — the Galaxy Z Fold5 and Galaxy Z Flip5 in the Philippines at Conrad Manila, where they also unveiled the latest members of #TeamGalaxy. Meet your favorite celebrities and the nation’s top content creators and find out what convinced them to join the Flip Side.

Beauty queen, TV personality, singer, youth advocate, and art ambassador Catriona Gray has officially joined the Flip Side! For a multi-hyphenate whose schedule is always full, the Galaxy Fold5 is the perfect device for Catriona, who loves the phone’s big screen, multi-tasking capabilities and the S Pen that fits perfectly in her pocket.

“It allows you to do everything in one place. So, instead of needing your PC or a tablet, it’s all in your phone. I can take Zoom calls and stand the phone up so I can just angle it at any angle while on videos and I can also take down notes on the same device!” Catriona exclaimed.

As a content creator herself, the Galaxy Z Fold5’s biggest screen yet bestowed her the efficiency in performing multiple tasks with its versatile Multi-window feature for all apps. Not only does the Galaxy Z Fold5 give Catriona a PC-like experience in her pocket, she was also very impressed with its cameras and how easy it is to navigate when editing, “When I’m taking photos, the camera is really crisp and registers great color and contrast.”

AC Bonifacio: Galaxy Z Flip5 – the coolest content creation phone for Gen Zs

International dance sensation, singer, actress and now the new Team Galaxy ambassador AC Bonifacio is over the moon with the sleek design and color of the Galaxy Z Flip5 (the mint is her favorite!). AC described how much easier it is to create content and live independently with the pro-grade camera of the Galaxy Flip5 that comes with its unique FlexCam.

“It’s helped me a lot. For the past few months, I’ve been much more independent than I usually am. Whenever I need to do any type of content or when I work out sometimes, it’s nice to have the Flex Mode. I can just watch what I need to watch and I know it’s steady also on the floor.”

AC definitely recommends the Galaxy Z Flip5 to Gen Zs, “It’s super cool. Now that it’s back, it gives you the feeling of that ’90s flip phone, and at the same time, it gives you that Gen Z feeling because you have the content creation on it, the camera quality, gaming, everything all in one.”

Patricia Prieto: With the Galaxy Z Flip5, all you need is your phone and yourself

A fashion, travel/lifestyle blogger and content creator, Patricia Prieto can’t get over how wonderful her trip to Korea went for Unpacked – with the Galaxy Z Flip5 helping her capture every moment even when she was by herself.

“[With] the FlexCam, even if you’re using the selfie camera, it’s still so good. I can go to events by myself and not have to worry about a thing because I can just put it on a flat surface and take a photo of myself,” Patricia added.

She also shared how easy it was to sync up with the latest Galaxy Watch6, “ I was like, wow, I can do this. I can record by just using my watch. It was so easy.”

And after taking photos and videos, Patricia loves how easy it was to share these with the Quick Share feature and the high quality of photos when they were rendered even after transferring the files. “It’s still as crisp. As clear, as vibrant as when you first record it.”

Michelle Dee: A phone that matches her productivity drive and elevates the experience

A multi-hyphenate as well, Miss Philippines Universe 2023 Michelle Marquez Dee finds that having a phone that can match her productivity-beast self is indispensable. Creative and entrepreneurial, she’s ecstatic about the newly redesigned S Pen and the multi-window that comes with the Galaxy Z Fold5’s huge screen when unfolded. “It has a great form factor that will make your life so much more convenient and your workflow so much more efficient… your productivity that’s already at 100% just gets bumped up to 200% at that point.”

For Michelle, Samsung’s flagship foldable phone is truly the best in class. She describes the new aluminum bezels as sleeker and classier and even highlights, “The gap between the foldable screens is basically non-existent. I used to carry two phones, and now I don’t have to because the Fold5 is able to handle everything that I need to do.”

Nico Bolzico: Galaxy Watch6 series – your wellness partner

A fitness and wellness buff, entrepreneur and social media superstar, Nico Bolzico, is thrilled to explore everything the latest Galaxy Watch6 can offer. “There is a new way of training that is related to your heart rate. It’s not how fast you run but how to maintain your heart rate within two bands. Because I can check that with the Samsung watch, I’m very excited to try that.”

Nico also finds it essential to have a feature that monitors his sleep, especially for dads like him, “Sleeping, it’s a luxury today. So having [a] good quality of sleep and being able to monitor not only how much but how my sleep quality is, [is] very relevant because sleep is as important as training and eating. So sleep is one of those pillars that you need for your overall wellness.”

Camille Co: With the Galaxy Tab S9 series, you won’t miss out on anything!

From blogging to vlogging about fashion, beauty, travel and so much more, Camille Co juggles a hectic lifestyle as a content creator, wife and mom – so the Galaxy S Tab9 and its new features that support one’s creativity and productivity are set to become her new besties.

As a fashion designer who loves drawing and writing by hand, it’s no surprise that the S Pen captivated Camille – especially as it now comes with an IP68 rating for water resistance, “I’m not scared of using it outdoors because it’s really built to last.
It’s the most powerful Tab yet. I love that I’m able to bring it out with me anywhere.”

Would she recommend the Galaxy Tab S9 series? “I definitely think creatives would love this, especially now that Good Notes is available on Android. I’m a Good Notes user as well, so I really love it. Whenever I design for my multiple brands and all my different deliverables, I do it on Good Notes. Because it’s so powerful, we can even edit their videos just right on the tab.”

Along with DJ CRWN who served up upbeat music for the crowd, lifestyle content creators and fashion trendsetters such as Marina Summers, Melissa Gatchalian, Lexi Mendiola, Trasienne Estrada, Rex Atienza, Candy Gamos, Liam Labroy, Rocio Escano, JM Yrreverre, Marga Nicolas, Nicole De La Cruz, Chynna Beverly Lim, Lance De Ocampo, Bea Arboleda, Sofia Manzano and Deegee Razon were also present as new members of Team Galaxy

Also there to join the Flip Side are music, photography and film enthusiasts such as Leila Alcasid, Curtismith, Jaz Reyes, Shaira Luna, Jilson Tiu, Renee De Guzman, Patrick Diokno, Andrea Beldua and Jolo Luarca III.

Buildrite Booth Ribbon Cutiing

Buildrite Construction Chemicals, one of the leading construction chemical innovators in the Philippines, launches new products during the opening day of The Philippine World Building and Construction Exposition (WorldBEX) on March 16 – 19, 2023, at SMX Convention Center, Pasay City.

Founder and CEO of Buildrite, Derrick A. Tan, expressed his excitement as he introduced their new products to the people. He also thanked their customers for giving valuable insights that allowed them to create such products.

CEO Speech

“Your feedback is liquid gold to us, which is why Buildrite always listens to its customers. These products are the culmination of the insights — your experiences, concerns, and requirements — we have gotten from you through the years,” he explained.

The main highlight of Buildrite’s Booth was their Innovation Hub, which features the company’s new innovative products, including:

Level Up 410 – a self-Leveling compound for deep pours (4,000 psi at 10-25mm thickness) and quickly smoothing and leveling large areas of
Cure Sil EB and WB – an all-weather curing compound and concrete strength optimizer, which ensures that the concrete achieves a proper curing process and its designed

Tofil 807 and 808 – a drywall finishing system with anti-crack technology recommended for fiber cement boards and gypsum boards to eliminate the problem in cracking

SmartBond Flex – the first flexible tile adhesive that functions as a shear stress dampener to absorb and withstand the movements of tiles and substrate, which prevents tile debonding despite structural movements and thermal expansion/contraction.
Buildrite New Products

The launching ceremony was graced by the presence of Inventor Ronald P. Pagsanghan, National President of the Filipino Inventors Society, and Mr. William Chua, Vice President of Operations.

In a brief speech, The Filipino Inventors Society President said there’s a high demand for innovative construction materials, particularly among young inventors. He explained that most inventors are shifting to the construction industry because of its continuous technological advancements.

“Kitang kita natin na napakalaki ng puwang ng mga produktong ito sa construction industry. At ang mga ito ay gawang Pilipino, inobasyong Pilipino,” he said.

Inventor Ronald also expressed his admiration to his fellow inventor Derrick Tan and his team’s dedication to driving innovation in the Philippine construction industry. He then invited Buildrite’s CEO to give a talk at one of their events to inspire young inventors, especially students, to create more innovations for the betterment of the country.

“Congratulations, Buildrite! Please continue to innovate… Keep up the good work, Mr. Derrick Tan, and may you continue being an inspiration to our youths,” he concluded.

This is Buildrite’s first time joining WorldBEX, but the company has been an active exhibitor in various construction events over the years. Last year, Buildrite and Sinclair Paints joined the PhilConstruct Expo and launched SmartBond Flex and Readycrete while simultaneously re-launching Sinclair: The New Generation Paint.

Buildrite and Sinclair Paints are also active participants in international training, seminars, and expos, which allowed them to gain insights into advanced technologies in construction chemicals.

Since the launch of their Magtanong Para Sigurado campaign in 2018, the first and original online campaign that teaches the right construction chemical products and methodologies online, Buildrite has been dubbed one of the best innovators in construction chemical technology in the Philippines.

According to CEO Tan, all their efforts center around their essence as a company, to help and teach people about the right construction chemical products and methodologies for specific requirements. Furthermore, the company envisions bringing about a future where the country is already on par with international standards.

This is why Buildrite is fast-tracking industry standardization by raising the bar to new heights.

The Stoveless Kitchen: Modern Solutions for Modern Problems

Professional Results At Home: Recreating Take-Out Favorites With The Breville Smart Oven Air Fryer
For all avid home cooks out there, here’s a question we want you to answer truthfully: As much as you love making creations in your own kitchens, how often do you find yourself craving take-out food?
If your answer is “a lot,” then you’re definitely not alone in your plight. Ordering in is as convenient as it goes, especially now in a time of food delivery services being available anywhere you are. More than that, there’s just something different about enjoying something prepped by your favorite restaurant. The magic lies in not having to slave in front of a stove–and enjoying restaurant-quality dishes in the comfort of your own home.
But then again, what really is the true meaning of restaurant-level food nowadays? What if we tell you that you can still enjoy the same quality of take-outs by cooking in your kitchen?
Convenience and quality come in the form of the Breville Smart Oven Air Fryer, the new kitchen must-have for every discerning homemaker. The newest in the line of the premium brand’s standout oven models, the Smart Oven Air Fryer boasts an outstanding product DNA that can help anyone create restaurant-quality food at home.
Versatility-wise, this unit from Breville is packed with ten cooking functions that include toasting, grilling, roasting, slow cooking, and a dedicated air frying function. It also uses a dual-speed convection technology that reduces cooking time by 30 percent so you can enjoy your food faster. What makes the Smart Oven Air Fryer even better, moreover, is that it cooks without oil so you can enjoy healthier versions of your favorite dishes. Thanks to its trademarked Element IQ System—a smart algorithm that helps create the ideal cooking environment for a range of different cooking techniques—the guesswork for the right settings is taken out of the equation, making this unit ideal even for newbie home cooks. It’s like bringing a professional restaurant-level kitchen partner that does the work for you right in your very home.
If you’re wondering how far you can take your creativity with the Breville Smart Oven Air Fryer, here are some recipes that you can try on your own. Fair warning, you might NEVER want to order take-out again after having a bite of them!
Donuts are never a miss if you have a sweet toot. Make your own handcrafted donuts at home by following this recipe.
975 g Flour, All Purpose
1.5 g Groceries, Yeast
20 g Sea Salt
100 g Refined, sugar
8 pcs Eggs, raw
220 ml Water
130 ml Dairy, Full Cream Milk
900 g Dairy, Unsalted Butter
60 ml Groceries, Buttermilk
20 ml Juice, Lime
1.5 g Salt, Kosher
300 ml Vegetable Oil
400 g Lime
Doughnut Procedure: In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, water, and milk. Whisk in the butter. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir with a rubber spatula until the liquid is absorbed and there are no lumps. The mixture will resemble muffin batter. It may look a little lumpy and slightly greasy but be assured that all of the butter will be absorbed by the time the dough rises. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let it rest at room temperature for 4 to 6 hours.
Uncover the bowl and use a rubber spatula to gently loosen the dough from the bowl. Dampen your hands with cool water and slide one hand under one side of the dough. Fold that side of the dough into the center and press it down gently so it adheres to itself. Give the bowl a quarter turn and repeat the folding process two more times. After the fourth fold, flip the dough over so the seams are on the bottom. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let it rest at room temperature for 8 to 12 hours, or overnight.
Uncover the bowl and repeat the folding procedure in the previous step. Put the dough onto a plastic wrap–lined baking sheet. Cover the dough with plastic wrap and pat the dough into a flattened dome. Refrigerate the dough until it is firm, at least 2 hours and up to 2 days.
Line 3 baking sheets with parchment paper and lightly dust them with flour. Remove the dough from the refrigerator and dust a countertop lightly but evenly with flour. Turn the dough out onto the floured countertop and dust it with flour. Use a rolling pin to roll the dough out to a 3⁄8-inch (9 mm) thickness. Use additional flour if it begins to stick. Use a 3-inch (8 cm) doughnut cutter to cut out the doughnuts and put them onto the parchment-lined pans. Separate the holes from the doughnuts so they may be fried separately. Cover the pans loosely with plastic wrap and let the doughnuts proof for 1 hour. Gently ball up the trimmings from the doughnuts, put them in a bowl, cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate until they firm up, at least 1 hour or up to 24. These trimmings may be rerolled to make additional doughnuts.
Pour 2 inches (5 cm) of oil into a large pot and heat it over medium-high heat until it reaches 350F (177C). Set a wire rack over a baking sheet. Put 4 to 5 doughnuts at a time in the oil and cook for 1 minute. Use a slotted spoon or spider to flip the doughnuts over and cook them for 1 minute on the other side. Flip one more time and cook for 1 minute more. The doughnuts should be golden brown. Use the slotted spoon to transfer the doughnuts from the oil to the rack to cool. Repeat to cook the remaining doughnuts. To cook the holes, put 12 into the oil at a time and cook for 45 seconds. Use the slotted spoon to turn the holes over and cook for 45 more seconds. Some of the holes may not flip, so use the slotted spoon to stir them in the oil so they cook evenly. Transfer the holes to the wire rack.
Lime Glaze Procedure: Put the confectioners’ sugar in a bowl and pour in the buttermilk, lime juice, and salt. Use a whisk to stir the mixture together until it forms a smooth glaze. Reserve at room temperature and whisk until smooth before using.
Dip one side of each doughnut into the glaze, then flip glaze side up and return to the cooling rack.
Grate the zest of 3 of the limes over the glazed doughnuts.
Once all the doughnuts are glazed, put the doughnut holes into the bowl with the glaze and grate the zest from the remaining lime into the bowl.
Use a spoon to mix the holes in the glaze and evenly coat them.
Transfer the holes to the wire rack and let the glaze harden. Serve once the glaze is firm to the touch, if you can wait that long.

Samsung Leads Holistic Health Innovation with Galaxy Watch5 and Galaxy Watch5 Pro

New Galaxy Watch5 series is packed with insightful sleep tracking, personalized design,
plus enhanced durability that shape everyday health and wellness habits

Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. today announced the Galaxy Watch5 and Galaxy Watch5 Pro –shaping health and wellness habits with intuitive insights, advanced features, and even more powerful capabilities. The Galaxy Watch5 enhances the features that consumers rely on every day, while the Galaxy Watch5 Pro – the newest addition to the Galaxy Watch lineup – is Samsung’s most durable and feature-packed watch yet. These new devices are a commitment to users that their goals and milestones can be met, and Galaxy Watch5 and Galaxy Watch5 Pro are there to help.

“We’re dedicated to giving our Galaxy Watch community the tools, data and resources needed to not only understand their overall health and wellness better, but to coach them on their journey,” said Dr. TM Roh, President and Head of Mobile eXperience Business at Samsung Electronics. “With Samsung’s groundbreaking BioActive Sensor, we’re empowering users with the most complete picture of their health-related insights yet.”

Cutting-edge Sensor Technology to Better Understand You

With a growing desire to better understand and act on individual health goals, Samsung has set out to provide in-depth monitoring and practical data offering users the information they need to help them along their health and wellness journey. Galaxy Watch5 is equipped with Samsung’s unique BioActive Sensor that drives the next era of digital health monitoring. First introduced on the Galaxy Watch4 series, the BioActive Sensor uses a single unique chip that combines three powerful health sensors – Optical Heart Rate, Electrical Heart Signal and Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis – to deliver extensive readings that include heart rate, blood oxygen level, and even stress level.

With an increased surface area and more direct contact with your wrist, Galaxy Watch5 tracks health metrics now with even greater accuracy than Galaxy Watch4. Plus, its powerful 3-in-1 BioActive Sensor works in combination with the other sensors of Galaxy Watch5 series, including the newly introduced temperature sensor, to provide users with an in-depth understanding of their wellness. The temperature sensor uses infrared technology for more accurate readings, even if the temperature of your surroundings changes. This opens new possibilities for developers to expand their health and wellness options and for users to take advantage of all-new experiences.

Holistic Health Insights to Enhance Everyone’s Wellness Journey

Designed for everyday wins, Galaxy Watch5 offers a comprehensive end-to-end experience that goes beyond fitness activities and into the post-workout, rest, and recovery process. The Body Composition measurement tool provides a complete snapshot of the user’s overall health, providing them with a tailored approach to set goals, guide them through personalized workouts, and track progress. And when it’s time to rest, the Galaxy Watch5 series empowers users with recovery data, including post-cardio heart rate after an intense workout, and customized recommendations on water consumption based on sweat loss.

A good night’s rest is important in wellness, and that’s why we’re helping users have a better night’s sleep. Understand sleep patterns through Sleep Scores that monitor stages of sleep, along with snore detection and blood oxygen levels. Achieve improved sleep habits with advanced Sleep Coaching that gives a tailored month-long guided program. Through SmartThings integration, Galaxy Watch5 automatically sets connected lights, AC units, and TVs to predetermined settings that make for an ideal sleep environment. Users can sleep safe and sound knowing that the enhanced fall detection ensures an emergency contact is notified if you or your loved one stumbles at home or falls out of bed.

No need to worry that your watch may run out of power or get damaged in rough terrain; Galaxy Watch5 comes with 13% larger battery and provides eight hours of sleep tracking with just eight minutes of charging, which is 30% faster than Galaxy Watch4. An extra layer of durability protects the Galaxy Watch5. This year, we’ve included our first smartwatch display featuring a Sapphire Crystal display, which offers a 60% harder outer layer, so your watch remains reliable in day-to-day use. Cue up your favorite song on Spotify with just your voice using Google Assistant. And coming soon, find your way using Google Maps from your wrist without a smartphone connection. Additionally, One UI Watch4.5 offers a fuller typing experience, an easier way to make calls, and a host of new accessibility features that make the Galaxy Watch more intuitive.

Galaxy Watch5 Pro, More Features and Greater Durability for the Outdoor Enthusiast

Created for those that love the great outdoors, the Galaxy Watch5 Pro is the newest addition to the Galaxy Watch portfolio. From hiking to cycling and beyond, Watch5 Pro is ready for the challenge thanks to its premium materials. It features enhanced Sapphire Crystal that better resists any wear and tear and a durable titanium casing that protects the display with a protruded bezel design. Galaxy Watch5 Pro also comes with an all-new D-Buckle Sport Band that offers rugged durability with a sleek and clean fit.

Built strong, and built to last, Galaxy Watch5 Pro has the largest battery in a Galaxy Watch. It’s 60% larger than Galaxy Watch4, which is key to keeping up with you while you conquer a new route. Take advantage of GPX, that’s available for the first time on a Galaxy Watch. Head out on a hike and record and share it with fellow trail-lovers on the Samsung Health app with Route Workout. You can also download hiking and cycling routes as you practice for your next race or look to mix up your routine. As you hike or cycle, keep your eyes on the path and away from the map with intuitive Turn-by-turn directions. When you’re ready to head home, Galaxy Watch5 Pro will get you there easily with the Track back feature that takes you back the way you came.

Shaping Future Filipino Tech Leaders with Shopee’s Global Leaders Program

The rapid growth and development of the tech industry over the last decade calls for a new way of molding future tech leaders. In order to keep up with the fast-paced industry, there is a need to equip future leaders with a global perspective and a constant desire to learn. Part of equipping them with such skills includes expanding their scope of work to enable them to gain new competencies and exposure to different peers, colleagues, business functions, teams, markets, and more—all of which are crucial in training future tech leaders.

This is exactly how Shopee, the leading e-commerce platform in Southeast Asia and Taiwan, develops young leaders in tech. The Global Leaders Program (GLP) is Shopee’s 2-year flagship graduate program open to final year students and young professionals with up to two years of work experience. The program consists of 4 rotations among Shopee’s different departments, 2 of which are overseas. Throughout the duration of the training, participants are given the chance to receive mentorship from senior management, work on the end-to-end processes of highly impactful projects, and gain exposure from the various departments of both local and international Shopee markets.

Recently, Shopee Philippines welcomed its newest and biggest batch of GLP associates through a casual mixer to get to know one another, meet their senior management mentors, and heed advice from GLP alumni. The event introduced participants to the vibrant and collaborative culture at Shopee, and gave them a better understanding of what to expect as they begin their journey.

Karen Perez, Head of People at Shopee PH, shared “We are thrilled to welcome our largest batch of Global Leaders Program associates to date. As they embark on their journey at Shopee, it is our privilege to provide them with mentorship, a dynamic work environment, and meaningful work experiences. We are deeply committed to honing the skills of local talent and we look forward to delivering even more opportunities to help young Filipino professionals reach their full potential.”

This year’s batch of GLP associates is a diverse mix of fresh university graduates as well as previous Shopee Apprentices and interns. Included in the batch is Graciel, a GLP associate currently assigned to Shopee Xpress. She was a 2021 graduate of the Apprentice Program, Shopee’s flagship internship program. As an Apprentice, she worked under the Seller Operations and SeaMoney Credit team. Likewise, Neal and Lovella, were participants of Shopee’s year-round internship program under the Marketing and Consumer Insights teams, respectively. A year later, they are now GLP associates and will begin their first rotation under Business Development. On the other hand, Alyana had extensive internship experience in the fields of e-commerce and marketing. She was able to successfully channel her knowledge and skills to begin her journey as a GLP associate under the Marketing team.

Alyana, one of this year’s GLP associates currently completing her first rotation under the Marketing department, shared “There is no better place for me to build my career in tech than at Shopee. As an avid user of the app, I am excited to gain a new perspective on e-commerce through this experience. I am confident that the collaborative work environment and the mentorship that I receive from industry leaders will help me grow as a professional and further my career in tech.”

For Luca, another associate who started the first part of his GLP journey under the platform’s integrated mobile wallet ShopeePay, the overseas rotation aspect of the program appealed to him the most. He shared “The GLP offers participants such a unique learning experience. I am looking forward to completing my rotations abroad and gaining regional exposure from the different Shopee markets at such an early stage in my career. I believe there’s so much that I can learn from immersing myself in different cultures and working under different departments and hopefully apply in our local context.”

Meanwhile, Graciel, who was previously a Shopee Apprentice, begins her GLP journey with Shopee Xpress. “With the many processes and initiatives that we take on as GLP associates, it’s important to remember that it’s okay to ask for help. I’m grateful that Shopee fosters such a strong culture of collaboration and teamwork because I learn a great deal from asking questions and seeking advice from my mentors,” she shared on her experience navigating the workspace.
