Seriously Addictive Math: Parents see Brighter Future for their Kids with S.A.M


Parents are known to be a child’s first educators. Hence, it is only natural for them to only want the best for their kids.  With the holistic development and character building promise of Seriously Addictive Math (S.A.M.), it is no doubt that it is fast becoming  a parent’s preference in supplementing their kids’ capability in math.



Through S.A.M.’s passion in inculcating the right attitudes like love for learning and discovery, discipline, and solving complex word problems,  moms Sophia Ann Casipit and Virgilia CaƱete narrated  how S.A.M. satisfied their meticulous standards when it comes to choosing a learning center that will help their child overcome their math problems.

Before enrolling her  6 year old son in S.A.M., Casipit explained that her child feared mathematics and found  it boring. “Seth didn’t  want to think and analyze the questions whenever he had assignments and exams in school. But when I enrolled him in  S.A.M., I was so happy because he told me that math was fun to learn. He also got so excited every time he would  go to S.A.M.”  She stressed that her son’s critical thinking and word problem analysis improved. Her son can now add and subtract faster. What’s more, he now loves multiplication, a topic which he totally hated in his third term in school.”


But S.A.M.’s efficiency is not just targeted towards honing a child’s mathematical capabilities. It is also adept in improving a child’s holistic development and character. This fact is also evident in Canete’s 10 year old son Gab who used to struggle in math.
Canete who enrolled her son in other tutorial centers before recounted: “Before S.A.M., I sent my son to a basic tutorial center which also taught Singapore math.  But my son’s grade in math got worse so I stopped him from attending the sessions altogether. But when I transferred Gab to S.A.M., I saw a very big improvement with his math subject. I can now see that he is not struggling so much in answering his lessons especially in problem solving”.   

On S.A.M.’s learning methods, Casipit said “I love the worksheets on how colorful and illustrated it is. I also like the way it teaches Seth on how to analyze and comprehend the questions rather than just learning math thru repetition”.

On the other hand, Canete also observed that Gab also improved on his reading and problem analysis skills. She proudly added that Gab is now focusing on his lessons more. 
With the benefits her son is reaping under S.A.M.,  Canete said she would recommend S.A.M. to other parents whose kids are also encountering problems with math and their schoolwork, in general. Casipit, meanwhile, thanked S.A.M. for teaching her son, not just math, but also critical thinking and love for independence learning. She exclaimed: “I am thankful to S.A.M. for being my partner in teaching my son to look at math being my  in a different perspective”.

With S.A.M.’s well-polished and well-researched educational framework plus well-trained tutors, parents who put their trust in S.A.M. can be assured that their children are not just being trained to be masterful in math but also to be achievers, in whatever path they take in the future.

Happy 100th Birthday Nikon!


Iconic brand’s Spectacle Lenses unlock the future with the power of light based on 100 years of technology.



Nikon, the global leader in digital imaging and optics, is now a hundred years old! For a century, Nikon has relentlessly pursued the infinite possibilities of light, harnessing the power of lenses to contribute to the advancement of imaging culture and sciences. 

Since its establishment in 1917 as Nippon Kogaku K.K., Nikon has been at the very heart of innovation and development. Starting out as a manufacturer of optical glass and optical instruments.  The optical lens business started in 1946 with the sale of the Pointal lens. Nikon has since then been a leading innovator in the field of ophthalmic optics with breakthrough innovations in material, design, and coatings.  In 1983, Nikon introduces a high performance anti-glare coating with true, built-in scratch resistance. This technology becomes immediately popular in Japan, where nearly all of lenses now feature this type of coating.

This iconic brand has also contributed to the development of the optical industry, creating breakthrough technologies and high-quality, award-winning products in the process. It introduced the anti-glare coating, Hard Clear Coat (HCC), with true, built-in scratch resistance as early as 1983; the first ultra-high index lens, Index 1.74, in 2000; the first Single Vision lens, custom made according to frame shape – SeeMax – in 2002; and the first eye strain relief lens – Relaxsee – in 2005. Today, all Nikon Single Vision lenses feature its trademark Advanced Aspheric Design for sharp clear vision with limited peripheral distortion. Besides designing new digital lenses, it also continues to produce coatings that protect lenses against dust, water, abrasions and scratches, in addition to eliminating reflections and enhancing visual clarity.

In its pursuit of the endless possibilities of light, Nikon has gained extensive expertise ranging from optics and materials to image-processing and simulations such as ultra-thin ophthalmic lenses and digital cameras, to name a few. In fact, the quality of its products has earned praise among consumers around the world while setting the very standards recognized and adopted by eye care specialists themselves. 

The brand “Nikon” inspires visionaries who share its belief that “some great things are not visible with the naked eyes, but perfect sight will allow you to see what it takes to achieve them.” 

Filled with appreciation for the previous 100 years, Nikon moves forward to the next century, where its role will be in creating new values for a brighter future.

The Jollibee Burger Steak: Rich classic flavors, real value


Combination of unbeatable taste and local flavor behind timeless fast-food offering



For the longest time, the global fast-food scene has one strict rule for beef patties: they only belong between burger buns. 

But in a country like the Philippines, a meal can never be considered a proper one without our favorite grain: rice. Most of the local dishes go well with a serving of white rice and a splash of flavorful sauce or broth. 

In 1995, Jollibee—the country’s top fast-food chain and proud homegrown Pinoy brand—brought together a fast-food favorite and a Pinoy staple to create a new classic offering: the Burger Steak. Made with 100% beef patty seasoned to suit Pinoy tastes, drizzled with a flavorful mushroom gravy (a time-tested flavor pairing used the world over: beef and mushroom), and served with white rice, the Burger Steak was an instant hit for diners looking for their kanin-and-ulam fix.

“The Jollibee Burger Steak was inspired by something that many Pinoys know to be true: a flavor-packed, saucy ulam served with steamed white rice really hits the spot,” said Cathleen Capati, Jollibee Core Category Marketing Director. “But that’s the beauty of that idea. It seemed so simple, but nobody else did that over twenty years ago. For me, Jollibee only proved that we truly know and understand the Pinoy palate.”

Today, the Burger Steak remains to be a consistent Jollibee best-seller, with hundreds and hundreds of meals sold each day in 1,000 Jollibee stores nationwide. The rich classic flavors that this dish delivers is just one reason for its enduring popularity, as the fact that it has remained very affordable for over two decades continues to attract customers, too.

Aside from the Burger Steak delivering a truly beefy-linamnam, saucy-sarap dining experience every time, it delivers great value, too,” added Ms. Capati. “For only 50 pesos, you get delicious ulam and rice for a truly satisfying meal.”

Experience the beefy-linamnam and saucy-sarap goodness of the Burger Steak for yourself today. The Jollibee Burger Steak is available for dine-in, take-out, delivery, and drive-thru transactions, with prices starting at P50.00* for the Solo Meal. 

For more information on your classic Jolly favorites, like www.facebook.com/JollibeePhilippines or follow @Jollibee on Twitter and Instagram.

Prices may vary across different locations.

CDC Holdings Turns Over River Green Residences Units to Owners


(L-R) Homeowners Neil Nepomuceno, Jessica Nomorosa, CDC Holdings COO and EVP for Sales & Marketing Charlene Chua-Sy, CDC Holdings President & CEO Elsie Chua, Homeowner Leonila Ventura, and Singapore-based Foreland Realty president Hirota Keisuke


CDC Holdings, Inc., one of the leading real estate developers in the country, has recently turned over River Green Residences’ new South Tower units to its residents. During the event, a group of families and individuals happily moved into their new homes at the recently completed project in Sta. Ana, Manila.

Elsie Chua, the company’s president and CEO, warmly welcomed the new River Green Residences homeowners to the two-tower, 30-storey development, nestled along the busy and dynamic Pedro Gil Street in Sta. Ana Manila. “Like with all our developments, we strive to deliver a home that you can be proud of,” she said. “In our projects, our vision is not just to deliver four walls, a ceiling, and a floor, but it is our intention to provide you with a dwelling place that provides you a certain lifestyle – one of comfort and ease. But I think in River Green Residences, we outdid ourselves.”

Chua led a ceremonial turnover of keys that was conducted to celebrate the start of the turnover of the units, followed by the blessing of the units. The new residents received a housewarming basket with the traditional tokens such as rice, water, salt, sugar and candles.

The new unit owners will soon be living in beautifully done units that have spectacular view of the city and the historic Pasig River. Young homeowners such as Neil Nepomuceno from Malabon, a bachelor in his late 30s, as well as Leonila Ventura from Sta. Ana, will definitely appreciate the resort-type amenities at the 6th floor with an outdoor pool surrounded by greenery, so they can relax and recharge without leaving the city. A host of modern features, such as a fully equipped gym and wireless internet (Wi-Fi) connectivity at the lounge area, complete the kind of lifestyle that can be enjoyed by single individuals and families alike.

Another new homeowner, Jessica Nomorosa from Pandacan, bought her three children one unit each in River Green Residences, so they can be closer to their office and school. An owner of multiple units in another CDC unit, she finds it convenient that River Green Residences is located within 30 minutes to the central business districts and top schools or universities of Makati, Manila, and Mandaluyong. In terms of ease and comfort, it also doesn’t get any more convenient than to have establishments an elevator ride away, such as Robinsons Supermarket, South Star Drugstore, snacks kiosks like Potato Corner and Nacho King, as well as a BPI branch. Within its immediate vicinity are highly reputable educational institutions, convenience stores, supermarkets, banks, fast food restaurants and the centuries old Sta. Ana Church. 

Hirota Keisuke, president of Singapore-based Foreland Realty, represented his company during the turnover ceremony. They also bought a River Green Residences unit, made from high-quality materials such as the quartz counter top and bathroom fixtures. In addition to this, safety inside the gated community was another crucial factor considered by the company. River Green Residences will feel the utmost safety, as CDC Holdings property provides a 24-hour security, closed-circuit TV surveillance in elevators, lobby and amenity floors, as well as a fire protection system includes smoke detectors, annunciator & automatic sprinkler system.

With the recent momentous turnover ceremony, the company is a step closer to fulfilling its commitment in helping families realize their dream of living in their own homes. The new batch of River Green Residences homeowners can now enjoy a smart way of living, with its excellent location, move-in ready units, and superb features and amenities. To know more about River Green Residences and other CDC Holdings projects, call 894-0808 or you may visit www.cdcresidences.com.

Hey WAXING SUBIC: Hey Sugar Waxing Salon Opens in Ayala Harbor Point Subic





Living in the Northern part of the Philippines can have its ups and downs. On one hand, year-round sun and fun; on the other, maintaining your body for year-round sunning and funning can be exhausting. 

When you have the option to slip into your shorts and head to the beach or pool any time of the year, the goal is to maintain skin that’s smooth, no matter what season, which can certainly be sorted out by an appointment to your nearest waxing salon. But for Hey Sugar! Waxing Salon, it’s as much about giving clients what they need while making sure that they allow them to feel fabulous about themselves as well

Hey Sugar makes all-natural and 100 % Sugar grooming options accessible to clients of all shapes and sizes. They use 100% naturally hypoallergenic sugar wax that minimizes side effects such as allergic reactions and chemical irritations caused by traditional wax—a gentler but no less effective way to keep your skin smooth and hair-free

Hey Sugar!s interiors are renowned for being warm, inviting and discreet. Clients can walk in and expect a clean and sterilized environment ideal for the sensitive beauty routines that they are about to undergo, while still feel like they are about to get pampered and taken care of. 

And best of all, they can rest easy knowing they are in the hands of expert aestheticians who were trained to deliver only the best results. For newbies, this means you can easily ask your aesthetician any question about the process and advantages of sugar waxing and get a clear answer; for veterans, you know you will walk out of your appointment knowing there’s no other destination that can give you the same results using all-organic hair-removal methods. 

“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. Clients expect quality service, superior treatments and affordable prices but not at the expense of a warm and comfortable environment—and that’s exactly what we have waiting for them here,” explains Arvin A. Amaro, Hey Sugar’s Marketing Head. 

At the end of the day, everyone deserves some sugar…and there’s no better place to get it than by heading to Hey Sugar! Ayala Harbor Point Subic.

NOVUHAIR SUMMER HAIR CARE TIPS


Heading to the beach may be the most exciting part of summer. It is almost always part of the itinerary this season for most people. Others prefer to give in to their adrenaline rush climbing that mountain slope or just about anything that gets you that summer tan to fit in the crowd.


Did you know that spending extended hours under the extreme summer sun can pose serious danger to your hair and scalp? The same UV rays that brings damage to your skin without proper protection can equally hurt your hair and scalp.

Below are some of the problems your hair can encounter during the season:
· Split-Ends - UV rays and extreme high temperature can take their toll on your strands. The heat drains the moisture of your hair out causing breakage. 
· Double Trouble – Rebonded or permed hair needs extra attention as high temperature well as humidity disrupts the cuticle breaking some of the chemical bonds that keep the hair straight or curls and roughing up the cuticle, taking away shine and smoothness.
· Scalp problem – Scalp may also get sun-burned if you don’t use cover-ups for your head.
· Grease problem – Summer sun and humidity can bring extra grease on your hair, leaving it vulnerable to damage.
· Chlorine Stress – Swimming in the pool subjects your hair to chlorine.  The outer layers of the cuticle of the hair opens up when you swim and chlorinated water seeps into the center of the hair thus making your hair more brittle.
· Excessive Salt Water – Salt water can cause the same damage as chlorinated ones. Salt water dries on the hair it creates a high-saline solution which can build up and cause hair to feel dry, weighed down and hard to manage.



All these problem can be addressed by keeping your hair clean and showered after each activities. Take vitamin supplements that benefits you hair such as Vitamin C and Biotin. Getting your hair pampered will also give respite to the sun and chemical abuse. 
Novuhair, nature’s answer to hair loss is composed of 19 Natural ingredients with some of the known medicinal plants such as Ginger, Pennywort and Ginseng blended with natural essences of rosemary and peppermint. 

Novuhair nourishes the scalp and hair by increasing the flow of nutrients and improving blood circulation to the scalp which is very important after subjecting your hair from all your summer activities.  Novuhair also helps hydrate the scalp, maintain the hair’s natural luster and prevent early hair graying, hair dryness and itching.

KING CUP SARDINES Gives Back To Mindanao



Last February, GMA Kapuso Foundation together with KING CUP SARDINES, which is being produced by PERMEX Producer and Exportation Corporation plus other food and hygiene companies did an Operation Bayanihan.

It was last January that most of the municipalities in Mindanao particularly Agusan, Butuan and Caraga were affected by non-stop rain which resulted to flood including the overflowing of Agusan River.

This has brought damage not only to the roads, fields, root crops, but most specially to the houses of our fellow Filipinos.  Because of this, GMA Kapuso Foundation was the first Non-Government Organization (NGO) who extended their help and distributed relief goods particularly to the barangays in Butuan like Brgy. Baan, Sagunto and Halapitan, and Brgy. Nuevo Trabajo in San Luis, Agusan del Sur.  Extended help was also given most specially to those living beside Agusan River including the municipalities of Loreto and Banauan, San Francisco and Malimono in Surigao and to those confined in CARAGA Hospital.

Aside from preserving the country's marine resources, PERMEX core values includes protecting the environment.  This is why PERMEX feels so sorry for the disaster brought by the heavy rains which caused the flood and overflowing of Agusan River.  And in line with the intention to help the Filipino people and give back because of the support that is being given to PERMEX, the said company didn't think twice of giving ____ boxes of KING CUP SARDINES through GMA Kapuso Foundation.

Thousands of calamity-affected families were given relief goods by GMA Kapuso Foundation and KING CUP Sardines was one of those goods.
Because of what happened, PERMEX would like to continually remind our fellowmen to take care of mother earth to avoid these kinds of disaster.
