Herbalife Nutrition-Sponsored Athlete Cristiano Ronaldo Named Best FIFA Men’s Player For Second Consecutive Year

International football super star Cristiano Ronaldo, an Herbalife Nutrition-sponsored athlete since 2013, was recently named “The Best FIFA Men’s Player” for the second consecutive year. The award was determined through a combined voting process that included the votes of team captains and managers from national teams all around the globe, an online public ballot of football fans, and votes by a select group of global media representatives.

Cristiano proves once again that his dedication on the field and commitment to nutrition has elevated him to the top of his game, earning him one of FIFA’s top honors, The Best Men’s Player Award,” said Rich Goudis, CEO of Herbalife Nutrition.

Ronaldo, named the most famous athlete in the world by ESPN, adds to other major awards and accomplishments in 2017. He won the 2016/17 UEFA Men’s Player of the year for the second consecutive year, after once again leading Real Madrid to the UEFA Champions League title and finishing as the top goal scorer, as well as helping his team win the Spanish La Liga cup. In 2017, he also became the first player to score 100 goals in UEFA Champions League and European competitions. He currently holds four Ballon d’ Or titles, the annual football award presented by France Football, and is in the running this year for his fifth.

Herbalife Nutrition-sponsored athletes  use Herbalife® products before, during and after
training and games. As part of its ongoing commitment to improving sports nutrition and
performance, Herbalife Nutrition launched Herbalife24® CR7 Drive in collaboration with Cristiano Ronaldo, a sports drink designed specifically to meet the nutritional needs of the global soccer legend and benefit athletes of all levels.

Achieve the Season’s Light and Natural Look with Ever Bilena Advance


This season’s make-up trend highlights the “less is more” look-- minimal colors and strokes that bring out the natural glow. 

The forecast was shared during the Advance Affiliate Program a non-exclusive organization of beauty enthusiasts, professional and aspiring make-up artists who actively participate in the projects and campaigns of Ever Bilena Advance.
This season’s “less is more” look will allow the skin to breathe. The very light make-up is applied after moisturizing. The look does away with setting powders or sprays in favor 
of natural sheen. The matte finish is achieved simply by dabbing light dusting powder on the face.


The eyes are bare with only a wash of soft metallic shadow applied with no defined placement on the lid. Brows take center stage with their untamed look created by brushing the hair upward and applying hair-like strokes with EB Advance Matic Brow Liner. Thick coatings on lashes with EB Advance Volume Control add definition to the eyes.

For the adventurous, go against the contour of the eye and experiment with accentuated lids using the EB Advance Matic Eyeliner. Lines can be complex or as simple as a line across the lid. 

For the cheeks, the subtle blush is applied with control. The EB Advance Blushing Cheeks have a dewy finish with colors ranging from earthy browns to pops of bright pink.

While matte lipsticks are staple, glossy shades like the EB Advance Bitten Lips is making a comeback. This lip tint will look great on either bare or bold lips.
Achieve the “less is more” look with the newest products from EB Advance available at any EB Advance counters at leading supermarkets, drugstores, and department stores nationwide.

The Advance Affiliate Program offers free membership to qualified participants. Aside from training sessions, members get free Ever Bilena Advance products, gigs for digital, 
TV, and print campaigns, first dibs on Ever Bilena Advance’s new products, and seasonal trend reports.

IAA (Immigration Advisers Authority) tells Filipinos ‘check your immigration adviser is licensed or exempt’


Catherine Albiston, Registrar of the New Zealand Immigration Advisers Authority (IAA), discusses the importance of receiving professional New Zealand immigration advice in a roundtable discussion in Manila.

Registrar of the New Zealand Immigration Advisers Authority (IAA) Catherine Albiston visited the Philippines this month to advise communities of the importance of only using licensed or exempt advisers when seeking New Zealand immigration advice.
“New Zealand is a popular destination for Filipino migrants to work, study, or visit, but it may not be common knowledge that anyone who needs help completing a New Zealand visa application must get advice from the right person,” said Ms Albiston.
“There is no requirement to use an immigration adviser, however if visa applicants need help then only a licensed immigration adviser or exempt person can assist. Exempt persons include Immigration New Zealand staff, current New Zealand lawyers, and education agents for student visas only.”

Ms Albiston visited Manila and Cebu as part of an IAA campaign to increase awareness of the IAA’s licensed adviser register and list of exempt persons, and the risks associated with using unlicensed advisers.
“Unfortunately there are people who operate unlawfully and provide advice without a licence, which can result in a distressing situation for the visa applicant and their family,” added Ms Albiston.
“With the amount of information available in today’s world, it can be difficult knowing who to trust, which is why the IAA offers a register of licensed advisers on the website.
“Licensed advisers have specialist expertise and have met competency standards. They follow a code of conduct that requires them to be honest and respectful.  
“People who are not licensed or exempt, including POEA agencies, can share publicly available information, but cannot provide immigration advice.”
Visa applicants can use a checklist before they choose who provides them with advice.
The IAA is responsible for issuing licences to advisers and handling complaints about poor immigration advice. The IAA does not provide immigration advice. A person’s immigration status will not be affected by contacting the IAA.
More information on the IAA can be found at iaa.govt.nz or via email – info@iaa.govt.nz. For free information on New Zealand’s immigration requirements go to www.immigration.govt.nz

LBC Guarantees Customers’ Welfare by Adhering to Data Protection Act


The value LBC gives to customers goes beyond the simple act of sending and receiving their precious “padala.” It also means making sure that their customers’ personal data is protected, especially from cyber threats. 




In a recent forum with LBC’s top officials, Atty. Raul Cortez, Corporate, External and Legal Affairs Director of Microsoft Philippines, shares that due to the 4th Industrial Revolution, technology has become ingrained in our lives and shape the way we live, work and interact. An established company, such as LBC, should be able to put systems in place so that they serve the needs of their customers while making sure that it is compliant with the requirements of the Data Privacy Act of 2012. This law protects the privacy of individual’s personal data while ensuring the free flow of information and growth of businesses, including the exchange of information via live and online transactions. 

Atty. Cortez emphasizes that under the provisions of the law, an individual has the right to be protected whenever s/he decides to share personal information with any entity. This encompasses sensitive information such as an individual’s race, health information, education, religion, ethnic background, marital status, and even political affiliation. 

For its part, the country’s leading name in remittance and cargo, underlined their efforts to combat cybercrime; guard themselves fully from breaches in cybersecurity and ensure that they are complying strictly to ensure the privacy of their customers’ data. LBC is committed and more than ready in its journey of compliance to implement appropriate organizational, physical, and technical measures - as required by the Data Privacy Act.

Mr. Dale Jose, Modern Workplace Solutions Lead of Microsoft Philippines, adds that the security perimeter in the workplace has now been changed. He said that data breach can often be a result of weak or stolen passwords, or when sensitive data is accidentally shared to the wrong person. Given these risks, Jose adds that customers who do online transactions have the right to be informed, to object, to access, to correct or rectify, to block or remove data, to have data portability, to file a complaint, and to be indemnified. 

Given this scenario, LBC has begun adopting measures to conform to the Data Privacy Act. In working closely with Microsoft, LBC’s IT and Compliance team has already adopted Microsoft 0ffice 365 for productivity and Azure. Microsoft designed Azure and Office 365 with industry-leading security measures and privacy policies to safeguard data in the cloud and can help on the journey to reducing risks and equiping companies with the necessary tools to help them comply with the Data Privacy Act. 

LBC assures that while they are just in the infant stages en route to full compliance, the measures they have begun implementing is a testament to the way they do business—and the way they care for customers who have entrusted them with vital information and transactions.

Petsa de Peligro is real! Here’s a funny commercial you can relate to!



Jollibee makes us laugh once again and crave for their deliciously affordable offerings with their new JolliSavers commercial.

Petsa de Peligro—those few days when one has to go tiis-tipid  and higpit-sinturon before the next paycheck comes in—is an experience that most working-age Pinoys can relate to. Hands up! Lol. This period (which usually occurs near the 15th and 30th of each month) often becomes a creative opportunity for the budget-challenged, dodging lunch-out invites from their officemates.


For many Filipinos, “masarap” is often equated to “mahal,” which makes dining out for lunch more problematic for those on a tight petsa de peligro budget. To avoid losing face when declining invitations for a “masarap” lunch, one often has to resort to making excuses such as “I’m still full eh” or “I’m on this very strict diet kasi.”

Jollibee’s latest TV commercial, which aired last September 17, 2017, proposes a truly creative way of getting out of this typical petsa de peligro trap: ride a giant robot, and run away!

The commercial begins with an all too familiar situation: a group of young employees deciding where to eat lunch, when someone innocently suggests going somewhere “masarap.” Sensing a threat to their limited budget, three guys unleash their secret weapon to escape spending more than what they are prepared to.


No need to resort to such extreme means during petsa de peligro—there’s always JolliSavers to save the day. For only P50.00* or less, one can always count on sulit-sarap meals even when it’s not payday yet!


JolliSavers includes bestsellers such as their Burger Steak (P50.00*), which offers a satisfying combination of 100% beef patty, topped with flavorful mushroom gravy, enjoyed with a cup of white rice.
There’s also the cheesiest, meatiest Jolly Spaghetti (P50.00*), which delivers an incomparable sweet-sarap experience with every forkful. Burger lovers can count on the reliable Jollibee classic, the 100% beefy langhap-sarap Yumburger (P30.00*).

The creative ways of getting through petsa de peligro are always funny and relatable, but there’s no need to go that far, especially with JolliSavers,” said Mari Aldecoa, Jollibee Marketing Director. “In Jollibee, there’s always good, satisfying food for everyone at very affordable prices.”

Enjoy everyday sulit-sarap meals with JolliSavers, available for dine-in, take-out, delivery, and drive-thru transactions in all Jollibee stores nationwide. With JolliSavers, may sarap na parang payday, everyday!

Hey Sugar Waxing Salon now waxing in SM Marikina




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.

A Stylish Destination for the Male Grooming Generation NOW in SM Mall of Asia - Sports Barbers



With pompadours on the rise, man-buns making its way on the street, perfectly trimmed beards and facial hair making an appearance, it’s safe to say that male grooming is finally getting the attention it deserves.

But while men will admittedly make more effort by way of aesthetics, the process of getting the right look still prompts them to demand the simplicity and straightforwardness of traditional barbershops.

“Most women like being whisked away to a secluded world of pampering for their beauty treatments. The same can’t be said for men—most guys expect an efficient and clear-cut service—but not at the expense of style,” explains Arvin Amaro, Marketing Head of Sports Barbers Barbershop.

This gave way to a new breed of barbershops—one that delivers the kind of service that they expect; one that essentially gives a modern take on an old classic. And while there have been a few cropping up here and there, none have been more accessible or as successful in providing the stylish sense that today’s grooming generation seeks than Sports Barbers.

With 13 branches all over the country, Sports Barbers recreates the traditional concept of your go-to neighbourhood barbershop and offers a destination that is modern and stylish yet stays true to what men have been used to.

Its ambience and service, strongly anchored on its team’s ability to provide everything from on-trend cuts to classic styles, is a compelling reminder of inherent masculine values—adventure, straightforwardness, humour and at the end of the day, natural good looks (as opposed to self-conscious preening).

The entire concept of Sports Barbers is to deliver the best cuts for clients, inspired by traditional hairstyles and the most stylish men. The brand’s crop of barber-stylists, a term derived from the fusion of Vidal Sassoon trained cutting and styling mixed with the efficient sensibilities of old-school barbers, mean clients can confidently step into any branch and emerge looking as dapper and effortlessly good as they can be.

“The idea is to create a go-to destination for men where they can expect the reliable, time-honoured techniques of traditional barbering and yet know they are in the hand of people who will be able to tell the difference between a short sides with brush top versus buzz crop or a pompadour versus a slick back,” ends Amaro.

Sports Barbers Barbershop has locations in UP Town Center, Ayala Fairview Terraces, SM Clark, SM Southmall, SM Bacoor, SM Bicutan, SM Cebu, SM Bacolod and its newest brand SM Mall of Asia.

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 Cañete 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.

To know more about S.A.M., you may visit their website at www.seriouslyaddictivemaths.com.ph and https://www.facebook.com/SAM.SingaporeMath.Philippines or call 0977-8239910 | (02) 964 9759.

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.

Popular actress and influencer, Elisse Joson, is at the top of her game. Only 16 when she joined the crazy world of show business, she’s proven to have staying power after having been given roles in daytime and primetime TV series and even movies. Her big breakthrough came as the star in a recent series of ads for a popular fast food chain and she’s currently starring in Ang Probinsyano on ABS-CBN, opposite Mccoy De Leon, her rumored suitor. Just in the past two years, their team up has been nominated in five different award giving bodies, winning in four of them.

Elisse is just taking it all in stride. “I’ve been so busy and I’m really grateful for all the blessings. But I’m also my own worst critic.

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.

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.
