SM Cares Brings Bears of Joy

 

Bears1

 

Last Christmas, shoppers got a chance to spread the spirit of giving through Bears for Joy. SM shoppers can purchase 2 teddy bears for only Php200 – the shopper can keep one of the bears and the other bear is donated to SM’s chosen beneficiary.

SM City Iloilo recently distributed the cuddly toys to the fortunate beneficiaries – Oton Elementary School and Day Care Centers in Dungon 1 and 2.

Here are SM City Iloilo‘s PR Manager, Troy Camarista and Marketing Officer, Lee Pedregosa handing out the bears to happy kids.

The event was made more special and joyous for the kids with the presence of who else but Jollibee!

Proposal Season Comes a-Ringin’

 

“DULL November brings the blast, then the leaves are whirling fast,” says Sara Coleridge in her poem “The Months.”

But, is November really a dull month? Dull, maybe, during the author’s time in 19th century England, but not anymore in this day and age when people look forward to a lot of exciting events slated in the penultimate month of the year.

November is when we observe All Saints’ Day, celebrate Halloween, enjoy the semestral break, and start shopping for the Holidays.

Unknown to many, November is also the start of the Proposal Season – the season for bachelors to get down on their knee and pop the million-dollar “will you marry me?” question.

If you’re among the many wannabe husbands planning to propose to your dearly beloved this Proposal Season, you might first want to consider looking for the most important thing for this historical event – the engagement ring.

If you’re among the many wannabe husbands planning to propose to your dearly beloved this Proposal Season, you might first want to consider looking for the most important thing for this historical event – the engagement ring.

Picking out the best requires much thinking, but a jeweler like Odysseus Suarez can help a guy out in choosing the perfect engagement ring for his bride and make the proposal event a milestone to be treasured forever.

3

“The Proposal Season is upon us and we are encouraging those who are planning to propose this year or early next year to start looking for their engagement rings the soonest possible time,” said Mylene Suarez, Odysseus’ better half. “We get a lot of orders during this season, so it is best to order earlier.”

Suarez offers a wide range of engagement rings to choose from. Wannabe grooms can have a diamond ring for as low as Php15,000 and as high as one cares to spend.
Clients can also have their short messages of love engraved inside the ring for free, added Mrs. Suarez.

But should the process of picking out the right ring proved very difficult for the ones proposing, Odysseus Suarez is also prepared to make it much easier for them with a few suggestions on how to pass the burden to their partners while at the same time dropping a clue.

Interested to avail of Suarez’s assistance may visit his website at suarezweddingrings.com or drop by his nearest showrooms.

Odysseus Suarez’s unique and highest quality engagement rings are available at Suarez Wedding Rings’ showrooms in Ayala Center Cebu, SM City Cebu, SM Mall of Asia, SM Fairview, Gateway Mall in Cubao, SM Clark and Olongapo, SM Iloilo, SM Lanang in Davao City, and Ayala Centrio in Cagayan de Oro.

Vivo, the top 5 global smartphone manufacturer, today revealed its secret to perfect selfies with the launch of the Vivo V5 smartphone. The Vivo V5 smartphone boasts Perfect Selfie capabilities with its high-quality front-facing camera, fast performance, and upgraded features that ensure great experiences for its users.

“The V5 embodies Vivo’s relentless pursuit of innovation, with technologies and functions that our consumers look for in their device. With the V5 and its industry-leading features, we continue to push the boundaries of a premium mid-range smartphone as we highlight Vivo’s high standards in smartphone design and feature, “ said Vivo Vice President Hazel Bascon.

Premium mid-range elegance

The Vivo V5 sports an all-metal unibody shell black case that comes in champagne gold and rose gold colors. Up front, it features an 5.5-inch 12x80x720HD display clad in 2.5D Corning Gorilla Glass for protection, giving the V5 an ideal premium feel in the hand. Performance wise, the Vivo V5 is equipped with a MediaTek MT6750 octa-core processor running at 1.5GHz and paired with 4GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage expandable via micro SD up to 128GB.

The V5 also features a front-facing fast fingerprint scanner capable of unlocking the smartphone in as fast as 0.2 seconds. It also features fast-charging technology to quickly top-up its 3,000mAh built-in battery.

 

Redefining the perfect selfie

The Vivo V5 features an innovation that is set to be the benchmark of future smartphones. It is equipped with a 20-megapiel Moonlight front-facing camera featuring a ½.78” Sony IMX376 camera sensor coupled with a 5P lens system and an aperture of f/2.0.

Meanwhile, its rear camera boasts a 13-megapexiel sensor that features phase-detect autofocus that will help users snap photos as they happen.

 

Value-added benefits

Vivo’s V5 smartphone is also equipped with a 32-bit AK4376 digital to analog converter HI-FI chip, as well as a new iteration of its propriety operating system, Funtouch OS 2.6, now based on Android’s 6.0.1 Marshmallow operating system.

Among its new features is an improved version of Vivo’s take on multitasking, Smart Split 2.0 which allows users to view two apps side-by-side. Another feature is the Eye Protection Mode, which filters blue light from the screen to protect its suers’ eyesight.

“ With the launch of the Vivo V5, Vivo again sets the benchmark of a premium midrange smartphone with perfect selfie features that one would normally only see in flagship offers. Filipinos will once again have a capable and compelling smartphone choice, and one that can fulfill a wide range of roles in their everyday lives, “ added Bascon.

A Plus for the family

 

15195837_341807056196434_3645616299865492621_o

 

Vivo also revealed its upcoming device that is set to supplement the Vivo V5. The Vivo V5 Plus will feature a similar factor as the Vivo V5 smartphone, at 5.5 inches, but will feature a 1920×1080 display and 20-megapixel dual front-facing cameras that are set to enhance the perfect selfie experience of its users.

Vivo also announced Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen Curry as part of the Vivo family. The two-time NBA MVP and Golden State Warriors pointing guard will serve as the new face of the Vivo V5, highlighting its perfect selfie capabilities alongside local influencers like Mccoy de Leon and Verniece Enciso.

“I’m really thankful for being part of the Vivo family and I’m looking forward to doing more activities with Vivo and its Filipino plans soon,” said Curry.

 

The Vivo V5 Plus will be coming soon on Philippine shores. Meanwhile, the Vivo 5 will be available in Vivo concept stores and major retailers nationwide for PHP12,990. Consumers can also pre-order the V5 smartphone in major retailers starting November 23 to receive exclusive freebies including Vivo peakers, Vivo selfie stick, and a Vivo-branded phone stent.

Southpoint: Your New Favorite Hangout in Iloilo

 

DSC_0369

 

Just a year ago, SM Iloilo opened their mall extension, giving Ilonggos more reasons to shop at the biggest mall in Western Visayas. Last November 11 ( Friday), SM City Iloilo opened another  area of the ever growing mall with Southpoint –  your new favorite hang out in Iloilo!

 

DSC_0373

Open and Park-Like

 

DSC_0429

 

We all know that Philippines’ doesn’t care about our wide open spaces and we definitely lack clean and safe parks. The opening was graced by no other than Hans Sy and during our “ambush” interview, he shared that he wanted Southpoint to have an ” open-park” feel and to make use of their vast space.

I just love the idea. We need to appreciate space, the outdoors, and enjoy the therapeutic green hue. Southpoint has well manicured lawn, complete with a fountain area.

DSC_0451

At this digital age, we need more green spaces. Have you noticed how rapid Iloilo’s development has been in recent years?

DSC_0424

Hans Sy also revealed that they will be building a Park Inn hotel in Iloilo that will be connected from Southpoint. Hello, Staycation!

DSC_0378

Iloilo is a foodie paradise and SM wants to celebrate that with Southpoint. Southpoint is a place where you can enjoy great food and company even beyond mall hours. Restaurants at Southpoint closes at 10pm and with SM’s core values, diners can avoid those rowdy drunkards we often meet in restaurants closing late at night.

One of the restaurants to dine at Southpoint in Jaime’s Steak Room. I will be blogging about this new restaurant in Iloilo soon.

DSC_0385

Christmas is coming and if you have friends coming to Iloilo, enjoy Southpoint with family-friendly restaurants or just to enjoy the area. It’s a nice place to walk around even with kids in tow.

DSC_0443

Congratulations to SM City Iloilo for this new addition and for bringing something new to the Ilonggo shoppers. Hang out and enjoy Southpoint!

My Blogapalooza Experience

 

Blogapalooza Poster Nov 2016_Final

 

I’ve been blogging for almost 8 years now and so far, so good. I will always be grateful that I am live in an era where moms can earn money without ” going to work”.  Blogging has evolved. While I primarily used my blog as a portfolio, I have transition to directly earning from my blog by collaborating with businesses. In fact, blogging is no longer an online journal but a marketing tool harnessed by business and bloggers, who are now influencers.

What is Blogapalooza?

Many bloggers no longer treat blogging as a hobby that pays. It is not just a hobby anymore, it is  business with passion. Passion for sharing and writing about what you love about. Passion towards the interest of your readers.

Blogapalooza is the country’s biggest B2B (Business-to-Blogger) networking and marketing event.  It all started in 2011 when the Blogapalooza team gathered a few bloggers and back then, only few businesses answered the call.

It is an event where businesses can meet bloggers who they can collaborate with through the blogger’s contents and social media. For bloggers, it is a chance to meet potential advertisers  for their blogs. If you are serious with your blogging career, you need to work with brands.

Blogapalooza Horizon 2.0

For Blogapalooza 2016, the theme is “Charting the Uncharted Horizon” and for the first time, Blogapalooza was attended by bloggers outside Metro Manila. Blogapalooza brought bloggers from all over Luzon like Zambales, Visayas, and Mindanao and flocked to Novotel Araneta Center ( stay tuned for my hotel feature on Novotel) for a one-day event last November 5.

Yours truly represented Iloilo Bloggers along with my fellow Ilonggo blogger, Greg Flores.  I appreciate how Blogapalooza has opened the doors to influencers in other parts of the country, charting more influence.

The Bridal Gazebo of Novotel Araneta Center’s 6th floor was field with booths from different brands and companies with their own way of attracting bloggers to know more about their business. It was fun hopping from one booth to another, though I felt a little shy approaching them. Glad that all of them have big smiles on their faces and has the enthusiasm to meet us, bloggers.

If you are planning to attend Blogapalooza in the future, make sure you have enough business cards with you.

On top of the exhibitions, there were series of talks throughout the event. I personally like the talks, learning a lot even after almost a decade of blogging.

Here is the Panel Discussion with Ace along with bloggers from Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao!

Blogapalooza 2016 wrapped up with the launching of Buzzin, a new platform that matches bloggers and brands. I am excited about this because, I have joined campaigns from international brands and with Buzzin, I get to work on campaigns for local brands.

To sum it all, Blogapalooza is well spent “me time” as a blogger and as a mother. I got a chance to spend days by myself while nurturing my blogging career. Plus, I got to meet bloggers and gained new friends!

Kudos to Blogapalooza! Madamo guid na salamat!
