The special outreach affair was attended to by Vivo employee-volunteers who interacted with the 150 soldiers and their families and entertained them with song and dance performances. The brand’s celebrity influencers were also in attendance to give joy and encouragement to the Marawi freedom fighters. KZ Tandingan, Darren Espanto, Jason Dy, and Kisses Delavin also shared their talent in one afternoon of gratitude-giving, to the delight of the soldiers and their families.

Christmas gift ideas under 1000 and 2500

Still looking for budget-friendly gifts for your loved ones or for yourself for being extra nice this year? Check this out and get ready for Christmas!

It’s the season of gift giving, and one of the most grueling parts of the holidays has finally come upon us – choosing just what to buy for our loved ones! While the amount we spend on someone shouldn’t reflect how we feel about them, it’s still important to be able to budget our spending on gifts.
Along these lines, we’ve prepared some great gift ideas for your loved ones that we’ve laid out into two popular budget ranges. 

Under Php2500

Good earphones
The gift of high-quality music is precious. So do a little research and find a pair of great earphones that’s within budget for your music-loving friends.

Fountain pen
Once you’ve tried a fountain pen, you’ll never want to go back. Fountain pens are characterized by an incredible smoothness in the way they write, and will last forever if you take care of them. You can get a really great fountain pen for Php1000-1500 – throw in a bottle of ink for about Php300-500 and you’re still under the budget!

Prepaid healthcare – Php2199/1599

They say that gifts are a way of showing someone that you care about them. You can translate that thoughtfulness into literal care with the MyMaxicare LITE prepaid healthcard! For a one-time payment of Php2199, the recipient of this gift can get up to Php25,000 coverage for any of 8 common diseases – dengue, chikungunya, malaria, typhoid and paratyphoid, cholera, gastroenteritis, leptospirosis, and pneumonia – valid for 1 year, and for patients between ages 2 and 60 years old. Cardholders are covered for room and board, lab tests, professional fees and more, and even get additional discounts at select health services. You can also opt for a Php1599 card that has all of these benefits, though excluding access to major hospitals.


Under Php1000

Power bank
A good power bank with a thin and light profile but a big capacity like 5000 or 10000mAh will help your loved ones stay in touch with you – or at least allow them to play a few more rounds of Candy Crush.

These little dashboard-mounted cameras are soon going to be an essential part of driving around the slow and furious streets of the Philippines. They’re an amazing gift for anyone who drives regularly.

Prepaid healthcare – Php549/749
Even at this lower price range, you can find great prepaid healthcare options. Maxicare’s EReady prepaid health card provides up to Php15,000 coverage on emergency medical conditions, inclusive of ER fees, dressings, casts, and sutures, IV fluids and blood products, and more. It’s valid for up to 1 year from the activation date, and cardholders are eligible if they are between the ages of 15 days old and 65 years old. EReady can be purchased for a one-time payment of Php749 for access to major hospitals, and Php549 without this access.

Prepaid healthcare services

With Maxicare’s EReady and MyMaxicare LITE prepaid cards, the HMO opens up new, more flexible opportunities for Filipinos who can’t afford the monthly dues for a more traditional healthcare plan. These innovative programs ensure that a greater number of people are able to access healthcare, leaving no one behind when it comes to what matters most.
To buy Maxicare prepaid healthcards, just log on to www.maxicareprepaidhealthcare.com.ph.
EReady and MyMaxicare Lite are also available in all Robinsons Department Stores (Business Center) nationwide and via IRemit.

Vivo launches touching Christmas video

To celebrate the holiday in true Filipino Christmas spirit, Vivo Philippines releases a special holiday video depicting a touching story of a widow, her children, and a husband and father they lost in a war. The story revolved around a grieving wife and mother who tends to her small children on a Christmas eve when a group of carolers offered a rendition of ‘Silent Night’ outside their home.

Laden with gifts and noche buena food, the carolers were then welcomed inside the home of the aggrieved family only for the former’s emotions to be stirred by a solitary portrait of the father of the home—a soldier who perished fighting for peace.

The Vivo special Christmas video is an instant hit amongst the family-oriented Filipinos, garnering 781,000 views, 4,212 shares and almost 41,000 likes within six days after its release on Vivo Philippines’ official Facebook page. Because of its theme centered on family, Christmas, togetherness, and gratitude, Vivo’s special Christmas video hits home for many Filipinos. 

The comments section abounds with emotional sentiments with messages of gratitude for the soldiers who fought to re-establish peace in Marawi. Some of the comments even expressed gratitude to Vivo for “giving [the audience] an avenue to thank the ones who enabled them to celebrate Christmas in peace.” “very meaningful and heartwarming! a tribute to all our soldiers and father! hats off to Vivo management for making this short film.”

Vivo, by way of the special Christmas video, shares and celebrates what a truly meaningful Christmas for Filipinos. Family, togetherness, empathy, and the spirit of giving make a Filipino Christmas like no one else in the world.

How can parents make the most of the child's formative years?

How can we as parents guide our children to become the kind of individuals we can all be proud of? 

Last December 1, I was one of the fortunate few who were invited by Jollibee to attend a parenting talk with the world-renowned parenting and character formation expert with over 22 books on the field, Dr. Michele Borba.

During the #SweetSayaMoments parenting chat with other speakers I was able to note some essential takeaways that I'll be sharing with you.

Host Ms. Gelli Victor and Ms. Cathleen Capati

Jollibee Philippines Managing Director for the Flagship Category, Ms. Cathleen Capati said that Parent-child bonding is pivotal in building character during formative years. "It can be very challenging to raise kids in this day and age. But if there's anything that Filipino parents should not forget, it's the lasting importance of actually spending time with their children to teach them the values that we hold dear to our hearts, such as compassion, generosity, confidence and love for the family. 

I got teary-eyed with the latest Jolly Spaghetti ad. The ad showed how a childhood can be nurtured through simple yet impactful quality time with the family not only with the parents but with the siblings too. And children who are exposed to and are given love, care, happiness, affection, respect and generosity tend to naturally grow up paying these blessings forward as well. 

Watch this. 😍

It is an eye-opener for numerous people because it states very clearly that 1-7 years old is character building. And for most parents we don't even realize that is a critical time because we all think "bata pa yan, hindi pa nila naiintindihan,hindi pa sila nakaka relate" but it is a critical moment wherein they're building the character that they are going to have when they are all grown-ups.

L-R Ms. Aiza Tabayoyong,  Dr. Michele Borba, Gelli Victor and Ms. Cathleen Capati

Ms. Aiza Caparas-Tabayoyong of AMS Love Consultants for Families and Couples said that the best way to raise our children is to :
✔ be present for your child. Go back to basics. Spend quality time. Be a role model of good behavior for your children .

✔ Have a 1 on 1 : one day a week date day. Find time with each other. Getting to know each child, each child getting to know each parent. During that date day... No GADGETS! I know this is a big challenge specially to us parents, more than the kids 😂

✔ Social, emotional, physical well-being - take those moments in time because we don't have a chance to rewind and do it all over again. 

She also answered one of the questions on how to be able to still instill positive traits in some kids even during tough times like throwing a tantrum, acting up in public, " We have to know when it's not about us. Ignore negative behavior and a lot of afgirmation for positive behavior. Because sometimes it's just getting our attention" Ignore. Be consistent.

What causes tantrums? Boredom, the child is hungry, needs a nap, needs relaxed time

Dr. Michelle Borba has gained renown and popularity among parents all over the world for her practical, research- based advice for strengtening character, fostering compassion and developing emotional intelligence in children of all ages. Her aim is to help strengthen children's character and resilience, build strong families, create compassionate and just school cultures, and reduce peer cruelty based on her experience working with over 1 Million parents and educators worldwide. One of her key teachings is to "develop a close, mutually respectful relationship " with children, which should be established during these formative years. The first seven years of a child's life is crucial to developing his or her character and values, which is why parents should continuously nurture them during those years for them to grow up into well-rounded adults. "Studies find that kids are most influenced by those persons toward whom they feel the strongest attachment and deepest respect, " Dr. Borba said. Children more likely to copy these individual's moral beliefs... just make sure the relationship is mutually respectful: you treat your child with love and respect, and he treats you the same way in return. "

She emphasized that this ideal relationship is one that takes time building and one that parents should put effort in establishing. Dr. Borba recommends that parents should dedicate "one-to-one personal uninterrupted time" with the child regularly to build this mutual respectful and loving relationship. I've tried this before, but had a hard time doing it on a regular basis. Will try this again as this is really important to be able to maintain a loving relationship. Our children don't have 
much time to have a childhood, because they are always (doing) and we are always BUSY which puts guilt on all of us 😔 Well, no matter what parents do, parents is always about guilt. Agree? 😂

✔ Do just take a quiet little reflection moment without your kids watching and check in how often you are all plugged in. How often are your children viewing a TV, using an iPad, watching flicks and texting? Did you know that the longer your child looks down, were discovered, the lower your child's emotional literacy score go? 

✔ Be the parent and start to say NO. If your kids try to resist (yes - that's their role : to resist) but you as parents suppose to say no. Figure out when you want your "UNPLUGGED TIMES" to be. The #1 best time that everybody should have their gadgets down is during family meals. So parents, I know you are guilty too (coz I am- sometimes) , put your gadgets down and enjoy your kids because there's no rewind button on parenting! NO. GADGETS.DURING. FAMILY.MEALS. That's the key in your lifetime rituals, your tuning in to one another, and creating your memories. There's no greater parenting tool kit than be able to look at your child's eyes and figure out how they are doing and that is what you mean as relaxed little rituals that are fun and they create a long- term connection memory.

✔ Sit down and look at your own child and fast-forward him and ask your self what are the values you want to see in your child? Whatever the values is that you can think about and say that's what matters most. All of your parenting will align with it. You'll be able to find dozens of simple, no-cost ways to live within. 

✔ Connect Face to Face
✔ It's all about each other and how you are treating each other. Stop thinking about "me". And start thinking about "We". 

"GOOD PARENTING is about how to help out children live their lives to the best of their abilities -- and that in itself is an immensely powerful role," Dr. Borba concluded.

Btw, I think each household should get a copy of Dr. Borba's  book entitled "UnSELFIE" - why emphatic kids succeed in our all-about-me  world. Big help for us parents.

So what are you waiting for? Head over to the nearest Jollibee branch today and treasure those simple moments with family over Jolly Spaghetti, ang‘Sweet Saya na Di Malilimutan’. Available for dine-in, take-out, delivery and drive-thru transactions, Jolly Spaghetti is priced at P50.00*.

Sale! Great Argan Sale Year 2 November 28 – December 12, 2017 at Nailaholics

What is the best way to combat dry skin especially this cold and merry season when it's  impossible to say no to all the revelry? Argan oil! 😍

Of course, aside from eating healthy (a lot of greens, water, and fiber), getting enough sleep and a lot of exercise help. Also using moisturizer that encourages natural production of the oil glands. Argan oil is thought by many to be the best choice of oils to increase healthy oil production. Argan oil stimulates the skin, reduces rashes and itchiness, and is safe for sensitive skin.
Argan oil is most commonly used as a skin moisturiser to hydrate and soften skin. With its high vitamin E and fatty acid content, argan oil is the ideal product to give skin a natural boost. It absorbs easily and is non-greasy and non-irritating, which makes it a great natural moisturiser.

Drawn from trees that grow in the southern region of Morocco, argan oil is a rich blend of antioxidants, vitamin A and E, polyunsaturated fat, and essential fatty acid. It’s literally food for hair and skin, eases inflammation, and gives it a boost of moisture from within that lends itself to an inner glow—the hallmark of healthy skin. 

It’s important to note though that you get the real deal. So be sure to get it from somewhere that has a longstanding reputation of reliability and quality. It’s the concentration of argan oil that allows you to receive all its benefits, so make sure you’re getting it from a brand that can be trusted when they say that they are giving you a bottle with no artificial preservatives,” shares Lorraine Baterina, Brand Manager of Nailaholics Nail Salon and Spa.

That said, here’s an insider tip that is just in time for the holidays: you can get a free 50 ml bottle for every purchase of one 100 ml Argan Oil bottle at any Nailaholics Nail Salon and Spa branch. 

Each 100 ml argan oil bottle is priced at Php 1,390. Now you get to take home more with the Great Argan Sale, giving you a savings of Php 790 which is the original price of your free 50 ml argan oil bottle. You better hurry though because this exclusive promotion runs only from November 28 to Dec 12, 2017. 

Hey Sugar! Now Waxing in Robinsons Galleria

Waxing has become a common (and popular) service offered at salons and spas for years. Whether it's the eyebrow, upper lip, underarm,legs or, well, someplace more intimate, many people choose waxing for longer-lasting hair removal. Waxing is a great alternative to shaving if you have hair you're uncomfortable with. It is recommended for people of all ages and both genders. If your goal is to maintain skin that’s smooth and hair free no matter what season, have an appointment to your nearest waxing salon. Hey Sugar! Waxing Salon, is giving clients what they need while making sure that they allow them to feel fabulous about themselves as well. 

"We strive to bring reliable and fast services, but also connect with our customers—it’s a very personal grooming procedure, after all, and we are dedicated to making customers happy and comfortable.
