Eureka making life more comfortable for the past 20 years

Eureka Electric Appliances Phils. Corp., one of the country's most trusted names in home appliances will be celebrating its 20th anniversary of innovation come January 2019. To kick-off the celebration, media and bloggers were invited last October 25 at The Green Sun Hotel in Makati and re-introduced their products, gave us a glimpse of what's in store from them in the coming year.  

Founded in 1999 under the name B.H Unique Marketing Co. Ltd., the Company began as an importer and trader of quality home appliances and water treatment products from Mainland, China. In 2005, it launched Aquaprime – the revolutionary 5-Stage Reverse Osmosis System Water Purifier, which garnered a lot of awards and recognition. The Company changed its name to Eureka Electric Appliances Phils. Corp. in 2009, and has since transformed into one of the country’s leading manufacturers of home appliances from its state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Marilao, Bulacan. 

To commemorate the milestone, Eureka has lined-up several activities to show gratitude to everyone responsible for its continued success. 

“Our focus on integrity and choosing to work with people who value honesty, diligence and excellence has helped the Company flourish through the years,” said Jo Uy-Chung, Eureka General Manager. “As we celebrate our 20th year in business, we would like to acknowledge the invaluable support of our employees, business partners and, most especially, our loyal customers who have made our products a part of their daily lives.” 

Eureka is set to host an anniversary gala where exemplary and loyal employees will be recognized together with dealers who have been instrumental to the brand’s strong market presence nationwide. Loyal customers are in for a treat as Eureka is mounting a very exciting sales promotion soon. Part of the proceeds will be used to fund the Company’s various socio-civic initiatives. 

“To make 2019 even bigger, we are set to launch our new line of products which cater to a more discerning market,” adds Ms. Chung. 

With the slogan Making Life Comfortable, Eureka’s flagship products are electric fans and water dispensers but it has managed to attract a strong following for its other offerings such as washing machines and dryers, air-conditioners, refrigerators and chest freezers. It also has an extensive range of small appliances namely: stoves, induction cookers, microwave ovens, oven toasters, rice cookers, flat irons, blenders, airpots and kettles.

Undas essentias : Bright tips from Akari

All Souls’ Day is fast approaching! That means spending the day, or even the entire night at the cemetery to remember our departed loved ones. For families planning to camp out, the country’s leading lighting brand, Akari, shares some tips to make it as convenient and comfortable as possible.

Bring an appropriate amount of food. Filipino families traditionally spend All Saints’ Day and All Souls’ Day together to pray and pay respect to deceased loved ones, and at the same time, hold a mini-reunion. Make sure you have enough food and drinking water stored in spill-proof containers. Avoid bringing dairy products and other perishable food items. 

Do not bring banned items. Security is strict during Undas. As such, avoid attempting to bring in prohibited objects including guns, knives, alcohol beverages, gambling paraphernalia, and loud sound system.

Wear comfortable clothes. Make sure to check the forecast. Wear clothes that are weather-appropriate and comfortable so you can easily move around. Bring umbrellas as well to keep you protected from the sun or rain.

Bring only the essentials. Pack light to make it easier for you to clean up after. Aside from food and water, bring garbage bags for your disposables, towels and wipes, first-aid kit, and rechargeable lamps and fans to keep you comfortable for the duration of your cemetery visit. 

Akari offers a 14-inch rechargeable fan that can last up to five hours. It oscillates like a regular fan with two-level speed control (low/high). For your personal use, you can also opt for the handy Akari rechargeable 5-inch LED cooling fan. 

Make sure you have portable lights on standby. Akari has a selection of rechargeable lights, from pocket-sized flashlights to wall mountable lanterns to high-powered searchlights. 

Keep these tips in mind to ensure a hassle-free Undas experience this year. To know more about Akari, go to http://akari.com.ph/

Do you have what it takes to be the next Cartoon Network Pinoy Rockstar?

So you want to be a rockstar?

Here’s the ultimate guide to being the next Pinoy Rockstar

Ever dreamed of becoming a rockstar? With the use of the internet, you can easily be an online sensation—a rockstar in your own right, may it be when belting a powerful karaoke song at the mall, busting a move to some of the coolest hip hop songs or acting in front of the camera.

But being a top rockstar entails more than just having millions of likes and shares on social media. If you want to be the biggest star out there, work on these areas to earn your spot at the pantheon of legendary rockstars:

Discipline at the core of performing

Your favorite rockstars possess one thing in common: discipline. If you want to get your name out there, you must practice discipline on a daily basis. Start with small things such as going to rehearsals on time, eating healthy food, and exercising in the morning. Being disciplined can take you far in the entertainment industry.

A heart full of passion

Passion is what makes rockstars cool! Whether you like to sing, dance, or act, passion drives you to entertain people and make them happy, helping you stay committed to whatever you want to do and attain! And with a heart for your craft, you can definitely face any challenge and succeed!

Humility is a treasure

Real rockstars don’t let fame and fortune get to their head! You should keep yourself level-headed and treat others with humility. Take a cue from your favorite performers! They are respected, appreciated, not to mention, immensely followed on social media because they remain humble despite their popularity.

Be you!

Do not be afraid to show your personality! Being true to yourself is an important part of being a rockstar. Do what you love most and focus on improving it. You’ll never know, you might star in the next big commercial or even a movie just because of your unique personality!  

Attitude beats aptitude

Possessing a positive attitude is more important than being so talented because it can greatly influence your behavior. If someone critiques your performance, take it positively and improve yourself. The road to fame is not easy, but if you have the right attitude, you can cope with almost anything!

Confidence is all that matters

If you want others to believe in you, you must believe in yourself first. Confidence is all that matters, kiddo! Build up your self-confidence and become more comfortable performing on stage by joining more competitions like the search for the next Cartoon Network Rockstar!

Cartoon Network Rockstar is an annual talent search that showcases the abilities of young Pinoy celebrity aspirants. Last year, Marcus Rayden Cabais was named as Cartoon Network’s first-ever Ultimate Pinoy Rockstar.

If you think you’ve got what it takes to be the next Cartoon Network’s ultimate rockstar, here’s what you need to take note of:

The competition is open to kids and teens aged 6-19 years old.

Participants should upload a 2-3 minute demo video of them singing, dancing, acting or doing a cool stunt.

Participants can send it to PickMe@CartoonNetworkAsia.com. The video must not exceed 20MB.

Each entry should have your name, age, gender, birthday, contact number, home address, email address and your guardian’s name and contact number.

Wait for an email confirmation from Cartoon Network acknowledging your entry.

Ten performers will be chosen to perform on stage during Cartoon Network’s grand finals on December 9, 2018. Amazing prizes await this year’s winner including a talent management contract with Viva Artists Agency.

So, what are you waiting for? Put your best foot forward and submit your entry starting October 26 until November 23, 2018. For more details about the contest, checkout

Television has evolved rapidly and there are many features we are looking forward to experience in the comfort of our homes. 

Buying a new TV set these days can be so challenging with all the newest features, smart functions, and terrific picture quality they offer plus a lot more. But fret not as Devant introduces their latest series of must-have TV which the whole family will surely enjoy.

Filipino Home-grown brand Devant introduces its latest line of TV offering – the Quantum Ultra HD TV, in the sweetest way. Im lucky to be one of the guests to be treated to a tour at eight colorful themed rooms inspired by different confections at the Dessert Museum at S Maison of Conrad Manila for this launch held last October 18, 2018. We were given time to enjoy taking creative photos in each room.. Talk about sugar rush! But what’s more exciting is what this newest product has to offer.

The Quantum Ultra HD TV is the most capable and fully featured ultra-high definition TV Devant has ever released that is designed to meet the expectations of today’s TV enthusiasts. Under this flagship series are the 75-inch QUHV01 and the QUHV02 available in 65-inch and 55-inch. Devant’s Quantum Ultra HD TV line has a 4K Ultra HD resolution and its High Dynamic Range (HDR) is capable of displaying accurate color and contrast. Powered by the quantum dot technology, images seen on the Quantum Ultra HD TV screen are more vibrant, crisp and detailed as ever. 

Quantum dots (QD) are tiny bits of semiconductor that are able to tightly confine electric charge and emit light. They are tiny crystals that are about 10,000 times narrower than a human hair and up to five times smaller than the width of a DNA strand. As tiny as they can be, they have the ability to produce vibrant colors when hit by light. Incorporating these quantum dots in large screens such as televisions would give you impressive picture quality because quantum dot displays are four times brighter than a standard display. Despite the big leap in display quality, there is no need to worry about increase in energy consumption because televisions with quantum dot displays are very energy efficient. Furthermore, there is no risk of the display’s colors fading over time because quantum dots are inorganic materials that are very durable in nature. They are the next big thing in TVs, bringing superior image quality at more affordable price points. 

For a better TV entertainment experience, one other key feature of the Devant Quantum Ultra HD TV is the UHD Upscaler that automatically upscale video contents to a higher and clearer quality.

Boost Your Instagram Photos Through Vivo V11’s AR Stickers

Gaining the massive attention of one’s social media followers through remarkable online pictures has been an ever-growing trend. You need to stand out from a multitude of talents and skills nowadays and be creative such as these influential celebrities: BoybandPH members: Joao Constancia, Neil Murillo, and Russell Reyes, as well as power couple, KZ Tandingan and TJ Monterde. The artistry in their photos has been through Vivo’s latest flagship phone V11, a futuristic breakthrough that is changing the selfie game with its progressive features and functionality such as the Augmented Reality (AR) stickers that make their selfies more attractive and distinct.

BoyandPH’s Joao Constancia looks cool with the Vivo V11 Augmented Reality (AR) 

Power couple KZ Tandingan and TJ Monterde play with the cute bunny Augmented Reality (AR) stickers of the Vivo V11.

BoybandPH’s Russell Reyes dons a bold style with a pair of oversized glasses and a surreal moustache with Vivo V11’s Augmented Reality (AR) stickers.

BoybandPH’s Neil Murillo makes a statement with a pair of trendy oversized glasses through the Vivo V11’s Augmented Reality (AR) stickers.

You don’t have to use an app for cute stickers to enhance your photos since it’s already built in the V11’s camera. The AR stickers are entertaining and engaging decorations to further amp up your selfies. One may choose to be a sweet kitten, a royal princess, a demure bunny, and other adorable “kawaii” (the culture of cuteness in Japan) characters. 

Aside from AR stickers, you can take perfect selfies because of V11’s superior Artificial Intelligence (AI) 25 MP Front Camera for excellent photo quality. It also has 12MP with Dual Pixel Sensors (24 million photosensitive units) + 5MP) Dual Rear Camera which boosts light sensitivity and focusing speeds.

The AI Face Shaping Technology naturally enhances your facial features. V11 AI Face Shaping uses AI face-modelling algorithm to perfect portrait shots by transforming the 2D image into a 3D model to allow for more natural editing with individual treatments to the nose, mouth, and eyes. 

The AI Selfie Lighting now offers more lighting effects than ever before with the new Loop Light and Rainbow Light options. Its AI algorithms understand how the user’s face interacts three-dimensionally with light, enabling it to accurately separate the subject from the background and add artistic light treatments.

When it comes to photography, framing the shot is crucial. AI Portrait Framing makes it easy by using artificial intelligence to guide the user to the best position and composition. V11 examines the current position of the photo’s subject, then directs the user to effortlessly produce perfectly framed portrait shots. Evidently, there’s no need to be a photography expert to get the perfect shot when you use V11. 

Establish a strong social media presence with V11 now. Consumers can now pre-order the Vivo V11 in two ways: On ground and online. It is available in all participating Vivo concept and multi-brand stores. It will come with exciting freebies—a gift set (bluetooth speaker and earpiece with selfie stick), as well as 6 months extended warranty.

Cohen: Lose Weight the healthy way, the right way

Losing weight and sustaining it requires major lifestyle changes. While most want to lose weight the easy way,that usually involves unhealthy options that may come with bad short and long-term effects. It is important to lose weight the healthy way, the right way.

The healthiest way to lose weight does not require starvation, streneous exercise, weight-loss pills and supplements, artificial food or drink, injection, or eating unhealthy food like fat.

Barbara Young, CEO, Cohen's Lifestyle Center

Last October 10, Cohen hosted a lunch meet at Milky Way Cafe in Makati City spearheded by Ms. Barbara Young, Chief Executive Officer of Cohen's Lifestyle Center. For nine years, Cohen's Lifestyle Program Centre Philippines has helped thousands, including celebrities and professionals, lose weight rapidly and healthily and alleviate serious health conditions.

Cohen's Lifestyle Program is a personalized eating program based on each client's unique blood test results (not blood type). It is based on scientific and medically sound research. Without requiring exercise, injection, artificial food and drinks, or intake of weight loss pills and supplements, the program delivers fast result, with clients usually losing up to 8 to 10 pounds a month the healthy way.

Cohen's Lifestyle Program provides individualized food 'prescription' such as the precise amount of food combinations. Cohen's Lifestyle Program Centre also teaches lifestyle changes that have been researched to balance the hormones that cause weight gain (Insulin, Serotonin and Human Growth Hormone). The food combination triggers the body's natural ability to release fat as source of energy. In the process, the body does not just shed weight but viral organs are also released from harmful toxins that disrupt its natural physiological function and cause disease.

Businesswoman Remo, 32 years old, says "I suffered from bulimia. I went to the gym yet I'd eat junk food and then throw after to lessen the guilt." Her lack of self-control caused her weight to reach 213 lbs.

Changing her lifestyle was difficult at first. "I had to give up salt,sugar, carbohydrates, oil and dairy, but my main goal was to lose weight and cure my polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS)," she says. Her commitment was rewarded as she slimmed down to 121 lbs and her PCOS symptoms were eliminated.

At 200 lbs, human resources manager Montenegro tried calorie counted food delivery and drank protien shakes, vitamin supplements and tea concentrate to lose weight in the past. She even hired a personal trainer to customize and exercise program. However, none of them worked for her.

She had a lot of weight-related issues. She suffers from sleep apnea, knee pain, insomnia, sinusuyo congestion, and shortness of breath. Her blood chemistry test results were also not good. She had difficulty finding clothes that fit, her mobility was limited and her self-esteem was at its lowest.

"(With) my medical results and my insecurities, I called Cohen's Lifestyle Centre for an appointment," she says. "After the session, I knew that it was the right program for me. Instead of buying an expensive machines for sleep apnea, it made more sense to go into a sustainable diet program that would not only address the problem but the other medical conditions I had."

"It's the mindset that is difficult to change, but the lifestyle was not as tough as I thought," she says. Her determination to stick with the program and find time for meal preparations paid off as she slimmed down to 111 lbs and achieved what she calls "her healthiest self."

Internal medicine doctor Tangcangco, 42 years old, thinks she has also tried almost everything (except drugs) to lose weight. She tried fad diets, Pilates and aerokaebo, a combination of aerobics, karate and boxing. She lost weight when she was younger but she gained back. Later on, nothing seemed to work for her anymore not even with calorie counting, Bangkok pills, diet teas and coffee.

She used food for emotional comfort especially after she lost her mom. "I used to eat when I was happy and celebrating. I ate when I was sad and stressed," she says. She reached her heaviest weight at 189 lbs, and she had to take medicines for high blood pressure.

Dr. Tangcangco was inspired by another doctor, a senior consultant, who lost weight on the Cohen Program. "I turned to the Cohen Program because I wanted to do it right and I needed the right people to help me." When no other weight-loss methods seemed to worked anymore, Cohen's Lifestyle Program proved to be the most effective. Not only did she lose extra weight, she is glad to report that she is no longer hypertensive and does not need maintenance medications anymore.

"Cohen is a lifestyle. It changed my perception of food. It is eating the right kinds of food without depriving myself of nutrition that my body needs," says Dr. Tangcangco. "If we correct the way we eat we can correct our entire body as well. We can't just exercise and eat bad food. It won't and will never work."

Now down to 128 lbs, she is no longer hypertensive and is able to wear clothes she only dreamt of before. Best of all, she no longer felt lost after her mom's death. "My dad told me if my mom were still alive, she would want me to do something good for myself. In joining Cohen, I found a piece of me."

She says, "It is always worth it to love ourselves and live a healthy life. Love life. Love your life. Love yourself. Do it with Cohen."

You too can lose weight the right way, the healthy way with Cohen. For more information, visit www.cohenlifestyle.com.ph. Our branches are conveniently located at Medical Plaza Makati and Davao to reach out to more Filipinos.
