JC Premiere Celebrates the 5th Good Life Summit

11:36:00 PM

Good Life, most of us are wishing and looking forward to have a better life, if not today, perhaps in the future. We wanted to enjoy the days of our lives with our family and kids. And the only way to do that is for workers to be business owners. Doing that is a bit hard for someone who has less but for the persistent all it need is the will.

I was once a networker and that was almost two decades ago. The business was great but didn't last long. Issues and matters about the company started to be shaky until I lost interest. I'm not sure how was today's networking company goes but it seems working pretty well for the many, specially those who have already established themselves.

Just recently, one of the growing and strong networking company, JC Premiere, celebrated its 5th year with the Good Life Summit 2019. This is the company's five years of continued commitment in making their members dream true. Unfortunately, the celebration had started already when we entered MOA Arena. It was Angeline Quinto singing to the crowd as we enter.

Some members where sticking their hands up with their mobile devices to have a picture and video of Angeline Quinto singing. When Angeline asked if this was their first time to see her in person, many raised their hands. Angeline requested for the hashtag #AngGandaPalaNiAngelineQuintoSaPersonal.

It seems that JC really did get some of the best in the industry because the next performer was Bamboo who sung some of the best iconic music in the 90's.  By the way the event was hosted by Gretchen Ho and Mr. Foo.

Testimonies are one of the networking companies strength. It is part of the company that proves your products are good. And one of JC Premiere's member was able to share, though short because of stage fright.

Another interesting about the celebration is the raffle. Yes, JC Premiere raffles more than a million pesos. Talk about luck because quite few of the 5GL Summit attendees were lucky enough to take half a million each.

The best part of the celebration are the talk of JC Premiere leaders Carlito Macadangdang, Vice President and CFO and Jonathan So, President and CEO. Some of the highlights of their talks are the life time Buy 1 Take 1 of some products, their Travel incentives, and new features of their marketing plans, plus the way members are given big opportunity to earn more.

With a growing network company like this, it would be great to go back to networking again.

Few Things To Know About the Movie of Nadine Lustre and Carlo Aquino ULAN

10:46:00 AM

There's a new movie to watch, enjoy and experience, a movie that is something out of the ordinary. This is not the usual love story that we have watched in the past years. Perhaps we're all longing for something new and something different. So, here's a film from Viva Films entitled ULAN (Rain) which will be shown in cinemas this coming March 13, 2019. 

When talking about rain, there are few beliefs and things to know about it. Some are facts and some are either folklore or just a tale created but what ever it is rain is just one phenomenal to enjoy. 

Here are some few things to know about ULAN. 
  • The movie ULAN is tagged as a romantic drama. 
  • It is about the character Maya who was raised by her grandmother. 
  • Maya believed and was aware of the mythical creature called 'Tikbalang' (half-horse, half-human).
  • There's a superstition that when the rain pours in the middle of a sunny day, there are Tikbalangs being wed. 

Few more bits about the story and behind the creation of it. 

Maya is a hopeless romantic. She works in a publishing company as an editorial assistant. She has fallen in love and has been heartbroken twice. And then she meets Peter who s kind, thoughtful, helpful, and every bit a boyfriend material. But Maya realizes that each time she's onto something good, rain falls all of a sudden, Must she now take it as a bad omen?  Or is it heaven's way of telling her that she's about to face a bitter fate?

Playing the character of hopeless romantic Maya is the Multimedia Princess Nadine Lustre. Writer-director Irene Emma Villamor, the one who directed Camp Sawi, Meet Me in St. Gallen, and Sid & Aya: Not a Love Story, personally take the lead in picking the best fit for the character of Maya, which is Nadine Lustre.  Direk Irene describes Nadine as "a modern Filipina and really has that depth to understand concepts like this. And brave enough to plunge in to a role of Maya."

The character Maya was already a character created by Direk Iren way back in 1999 from her film class. It is a 5-minute narrative about a girl named Maya. "Her dream was to climb a tree in their backyard," Direk Irene continued, "but her mother would always catch her and reprimand her." Until one day, she finally climbed it "and saw what a fantastic view it was  - roofs of different corrugated, rusty metals, top of other trees, some birds. And she was wishing her mother could also see it."

"That was really the germ of the character Maya, and she never left me since," as shared by Direk Irene. "She evolved into a short story when I was already a script continuity supervisor under the helm of Direk Joyce (2004- 2005). By this time, I was reading Gabriel Garcia Marquez and Allende stories - all those fantastic stories with magic realism elements. So I wrote about Maya seeing tikbalangs, and the mother became the Lola. and I love the rain so nagsama-sama na siya sa utak ko," she also added.

The character of Peter, the current partner of Maya, is played by Carlo Aquino, who is by the way the main pick of Direk Irene because the concept was shared to him. 

The movie ULAN also features Marco Gumabao and AJ Muhlach, the most promising actors of their generation, as Maya's ex-lovers. 

The young Maya is played by the cute and lovely Ella Ilano, while grandmother is played by Ms. Perla Bautista. 

ULAN is  a product of hard work and passion. Part of the team is the award-winning cinematographer Neil Daza. 

Another interesting part of the movie is the theme song and soundtrack which is from Riverymaya's 90s classic song "Ulan" turned into a much subdued ballad by the newest OST Princess Janine Tenoso. "Heto na Naman" by Rice Lucido is also part of the soundtrack. 

For me I think this movie is mystical and mysterious with the base of love and romance.  Watch the movie and unravel how Maya cultivates self-love and more.  

Get wet under the rain and catch ULAN in cinemas nationwide on March 13, 2019.

SM City Fairview's New Take of Christmas Lighting Ceremony

12:53:00 PM

Early this November SM City Fairview unveiled and opened its door for their Christmas center piece with the theme: Hometown Holiday. Instead of the usual Christmas Tree lighting they take it differently by ringing the Town's Bell to signify its opening. The event was hosted by the beautiful Binibining Pilipinas Grand International 2016, Ms. Nicole Cordoves. The ceremony gave a spectacular show for the guests, viewers and mall goers.

SM Little Stars 2018 Grand Winner, Aleynah Redillas, graced the ceremony's presentation by playing the role as the little girl who has a magic snow globe that seems to teleport her to different towns whenever she shook it. It was a colorful and magical presentation.

Of course Christmas presentations definitely made a highlight with the presence of Santa Claus and Mrs. Claus that made every child present glazed in amazement and awe.

There were also other performances that made the program even more colorful and fun like the NU Chorale and the group of acrobats who put everyone almost off of their seats. And the performance that made the audience go wild was the performance of the boy band In Real Life. It was like a magnet that made the placed crowded.

The "lighting ceremony" (which is actually the ringing of the bell) was lead by the Pratts Family together with the executives of SM City Fairview that ends the program and begins the opening of their instagram-worthy Christmas center piece. To make a memorable holiday just visit their center piece at the Atrium area.

Glad to be there and share the news with you all!

Taiwan Excellence Features Safety Products at Philconstruct Trade Show

2:13:00 AM

It's clear as water that I remember what my past boss from previous job always remind me "Security and Safety". No matter what is your work or line of work always put into consideration the two words "safety and security" or "security and safety", either way they are both important, most especially in the construction business. By the way my past boss or bosses are retired generals and officers of the Philippine Army and Marines, so imagine that.

That's why whenever I'm looking for equipment or products that I'll be using for my household I always take into consideration the two word safety and security.

Just few hours ago, I was able to visit the Philconstruct Trade Fair that is happening at the SMX Convention Center in Pasay. Take note that because of the large number of exhibitors and participating companies they are having two venues to showcase different products of the industry, one in SMX and the other one is in World Trade Center. This only means that the trade show are getting bigger every year.

So what does Philconstruct do? Well Philconstruct Trade Show features different products and companies that are into Building Construction Material, Equipment and Sanitary ware Industry. The trade show runs from November 8 to 11.

To give more input about Philconstruct, here's what they say about it. It is recognized as the biggest construction show in the country, is credited for having helped define the landscape of building and construction in the country for over two decades by creating a space for manufacturers to showcase industry-related items such as building materials and components, construction equipment and materials, building accessories, construction accessories, and essentials, interior design materials, exterior design products, and construction machinery.

One of its biggest exhibitor, Taiwan Excellence, features different new and patented products for different uses that comes with the word safety. Yes their products are created to promote safety and security. Taiwan Excellence is just one of its exhibitors that brings a selection of brands that have been recognized as some of the best that the country has to offer. Taiwan Excellence is an organization that reviews and recognizes all Taiwanese products and grants awards to products that are found to be exceptionally superior.

This year’s Philconstruct expo, Taiwan Excellence will not only be exhibiting their most elite brands on site, but they will also be hosting seminar discussing the strengths and benefits of their featured brands and also accommodates inquiries about their products. Aside from its strengths they will also share how safe the products in securing ones life.

Take note that some of these products are not yet in the market and are willing to find partners in manufacturing and distributing the technology. Imagine that these products are shared to the local household scene and Filipinos can benefit from it. Excellent product, user friendly, safe, and secure.

Each one of the companies present in showcasing their products are proud recipient of the Taiwan Excellence Award, bestowed upon them for outstanding performance in four aspects: Research and Development, Design, Quality, and Marketing.

Some brands showcase their innovation in creating sustainable solutions, such as Caesar Sanitary Ware. This brand carries the hydropower sensor faucet as its showpiece, a faucet whose mechanical detector runs completely on hydropower. Other than consuming no electrical energy, the faucet requires no external power source, and thus no wiring, making for effortless installation. The corrosion and tarnish-resistant chrome finish makes it a lovely addition to any bathroom, marrying form and function.

Another energy saver is Sunonwealth Electric Machine Industry Co., Ltd., having created a more energy efficient ventilation fan/filter. The fan is also designed for safety, being fireproof and waterproof. It features magnetic buttons and a lateral suction design, and gives users an energy savings of roughly 60%. Definitely not bad for this little powerhouse that promises an ultra-high air flow 250m³/h.

For work platforms of exceptional stability and safety on all types of construction sites, the company Chiao Teng Hsin Enterprise Co., Ltd. has made a ladder accessory called Aluminum Telescopic Steady Support. A structure comprised of four frameworks, it uses a multifunctional joint ladder structure and has hidden-style stainless steel shrapnel. Like every good tool, it works well with existing structures, and can be installed on other, less secure ladders. While installed, each step can hold a load of 150kg, and its anti-slip rubber feet allows the ladder to be safe and stable in a variety of work sites.

Ferro-Carbon Enterprise Co., Ltd. (FECA) brings several innovative storage solutions to the table, perfect for smaller spaces and maximizing any area. FECA products promise durability and style, and with their patented industrial vacuum technology suction cups, bring an end to the era of drilling and hammering into your walls to install storage. Each unit, such as the Samurai Wall Shelf Set, the Samurai 10" Magnetic bar, and the Samurai Storage Bag can be attached to rough surfaces, are durable and reusable, and are stable in temperatures of -10 ̊C to 70 ̊Cͦ.

Security is the name of the game with Tong Lung Metal Industry Co., Ltd’s featured proximity lock. A lock that features four-in-one access methods: fingerprint, proximity card, password, and physical key, it eliminates the chance of users locking themselves out of their homes and offices while ensuring the security of their space. The lock eliminates excessively complicated procedures, ensuring that it locks quickly to safeguard from exterior threats while allowing for easy escape from the interior. To make things even simpler, it also has a voice guide feature for programming and operation.

Xing Tai Guang Co., Lld. Sheds a lot of light on the subject of illuminating interior and exterior spaces with its XTGL Optical CMH Luminaire. With a power factor (PF) of ballast higher than 95% and a light output ratio (LOR) higher than 85%, it gives a luminous efficacy of luminaire higher than 85 lm/w.

Lei Yueh Enterprise Co., Ltd., believing that you should be able to see what’s inside your cabinets and small spaces without heavily impacting your electric consumption rate, presents the LED Mini Star, an ultra-slim and lightweight light source that only uses 3.26 watts per fixture.

One of the products that catch my attention is the products from e-Formula. One is their Energy Management System that is highly reliable and saves up energy of up to 40% or even more. Imagine saving a lot from your electric consumptions. Much more for big companies, which only means more production but lesser expense. During the interview they did shared that Telstra is the current client that uses the system.

Another product from them is their seismometer, an innovation in early detection. It detects and measures faster less disruptive P waves from seismic activity, and sends an alert before the more damaging S wave arrives. This definitely provides the safety and security for every building.

Cabinets and shelving systems that are poorly built are a safety hazard at worst and a nuisance at best. Addressing this problem is a Silent Self-Closing Ball Bearing Slide by King Slide Works Co., Ltd., which ensures that the home or office of the future has storage spaces that are not just whisper-quiet, but also secure and smart. Cabinets with the slide are self-closing, and the soundless speed down mechanism helps drawers close quietly by themselves, an effective improvement in living spaces that also prevent accidents caused by drawers left open.

Taroko Door & Window Technologies, Inc. offers up the Intuitive Detachable Pleated Screen, a screen system for both windows and doors that feature a dual function: keeping harsh light out during the day and keeping insects out at night while letting air freely circulate. Although highly mechanical, the screen is easily removed from wherever it’s installed for cleaning. Another perk is that it’s durable, boasting a minimum usage cycle of 100,000 times.
