Philippine FDA pushes for FOP nutrition labeling (Front of Pack)

Philippine FDA pushes for FOP nutrition ...

The Food and Drug Administration along with the Philippine Chamber of Food Manufacturers Inc. (Food Chamber) of which my favorite Mondelez Philippines is a member, has disclosed their efforts in pushing for food manufacturers to move their nutrition labels from the back of the pack to the front, thus called the FOP nutrition labeling (front of pack) initiative. The FDA says that for now, printing the nutritional labels on the front of the pack is a voluntary move for food manufacturers. Move to FOP nutritional labeling So what does difference does it make when the...
5 mistakes to avoid when engaging Pinoy bloggers

5 mistakes to avoid when engaging Pinoy ...

Engaging Pinoy bloggers is now a viable business solution. It is great to see that many companies are opening their doors to the fourth dimension in media, the online kind.  Our local blogosphere is very colorful and full of wonderful individuals willing to help companies, sometimes pro-bono, just to get the word. When a bloggers’ only motivation is their total faith in the product, the zeal to blog comes to the point that it has become almost an advocacy. Though we often say that bloggers are created equally, reality suggests that some bloggers are more equal than...
Aegis makes surprise performance at Rak of Aegis Opening Night

Aegis makes surprise performance at Rak ...

The musical “Rak of Aegis” is probably one of the most phenomenal musicals I have even seen at the PETA theater. I was invited to opening night and the musical itself is a certified PETA hit. Rak of Aegis is a musical comedy that centers around the life of a small barangay suffering from non-stop flooding.  Special mention are the wonderful performances of Miss Saigon veterans Isay Alvarez and Robert Sena. Galing talaga! The concept for this musical started out as a pun when someone suggested that maybe a local version of Broadway’s Rock of Ages should...
For Abby Asistio, the sun always smiles

For Abby Asistio, the sun always smiles

Singer Abby Asistio is a sufferer of Alopecia Areata.  She is an astounding beautiful woman who can silence a room whenever she walks by. While waiting for the program to start I approached her and introduced myself. Surprisingly, for a person of celebrity status, Abby is all heart and is very approachable.  Her voice is soothing and very relaxing, which I prefer to listen to because I’m not into the belting Celine Dion style of singing. Abby suffers from a condition known as Alopecia Areata, or spot baldness and depending on the severity, total hair loss.  I...
Mabuhay Restop Cafe: More Shows and Tours for 2014

Mabuhay Restop Cafe: More Shows and Tour...

Mabuhay Restop Cafe now has more shows and tours for 2014. If you liked the Manila Vanilla shows, then you will like their lunch time show that will showcase the various talents of the Gawad Kalinga community members alongside some of the finest professional theater actors in town. We Filipinos love to sing and dance to the tune of anything, from a bountiful harvest to gut-wrenching heartache.  The Mabuhay Restop Cafe gives you a different perspective of the Filipino’s love for song and dance that will surely entertain as well as educate. I recommend it for those...
Rak Of Aegis: A Must-See PETA Musical

Rak Of Aegis: A Must-See PETA Musical

I may have never seen the Broadway musical Rock of Ages, but I am about to witness something better, the Rak of Aegis! This musical is one of the most sought-after in theater for 2014 and we are all in for a treat. One of the most jologs and bakya bands of the 1990s has finally come to the theater scene and I am so proud to have been one of the first to have witnessed the media preview.  Mind you, I meant it as a compliment because this musical is a huge celebration of being jologs and bakya, primal elements of being Pinoy. During the press con I promised Ms. Maribel...
Bloggers at War

Bloggers at War

There is a growing sentiment about blogging being used by companies and individuals for specific ends, usually towards a substantial financial reward and this puts many bloggers at war with each other. There are those who say that blogging should be free and kept free from the manipulative hands of private enterprise, bloggers who believe that blogging for pay is a form of compromise and that it lessens credibility.  I’ve always admired uncompromising bloggers who write without fear, but I also fear them in return because of their lack of accountability....
What the masses think about Binay’s DasmaGate incident

What the masses think about Binay’s Dasm...

This has always been a burning question for me as far DasmaGate incident was concerned. For those in the know and who read the papers regularly, they have formed an opinion that is, more or less, on the same plane of thought as mine. While some people will argue that Junjun Binay deserved some courtesy, many of the people that I knew who saw the video gave me validation that my outrage was not without reason. Winnie Monsod of the Philippine Daily Inquirer answered most of the questions that I had about the matter, even giving new information. Of course eventually, this led...
