As temperatures rise with the arrival of summer, Pinoys fight the heat off with one of their favorite dessert treats: ice cream. Eaten after meals, in between meals, or as a snack, ice cream has undeniably become a summer staple for millions of Filipinos all over the country.

With the new and improved Jolly Twirl vanilla soft-serve as base, these new desserts will definitely thrill taste buds with its thicker and creamier soft-serve topped with delightful Filipino flavors.

The Ube Dip Cone Twirl begins with a perfectly twirled vanilla soft-serve and then dipped into a luscious, indulgent ube coating for a unique combination of creaminess with that gentle, nuanced sweetness and nuttiness.

A jolly twist to the classic Pinoy summer treat, the Halo-Halo Sundae Twirl offers a drizzle of ube coating and toppings like red and green nata, sweetened monggo, and banana langka on top of thick and creamy vanilla ice cream.


“Living in the tropics have made us more likely to crave treats that are both delicious and refreshing during the summer season,” said Kay Segismundo, Jollibee Senior Marketing Manager for Complementary Products. “Jollibee wants to bring classic Filipino flavors we’ve all grown to love like ube and the variety of ingredients in the traditional halo-halo. Combined with the thicker, creamier Jolly Twirl vanilla soft-serve that’s slow-melt, the Ube Dip Cone Twirl and Halo-Halo Sundae Twirl will definitely deliver a summer-sarap experience!”

Redmi 7 returns for an exclusive Flash Deal on Shopee

Monday, April 8, 2019
The Redmi 7, the latest budget smartphone from global technology leader Xiaomi, sold out within 30 minutes after it was put on sale last April 5 on Shopee, the leading e-commerce platform in Southeast Asia and Taiwan. This made the Redmi 7 the fastest-selling smartphone under ₱6,000 on Shopee Philippines. To celebrate the record- breaking feat, Shopee and Xiaomi will once again hold a Flash Deal for the Redmi 7 on April 10 at 2PM.

Xiaomi is known for smartphones with amazing features at an affordable price and the Redmi 7 lives up to that standard. Here are seven things you should know about this budget phone with a flagship-level design.

1. Premium-style design
The Redmi 7 offers an immersive viewing experience with its Dot Drop design and reduced bezels, that’s all Corning® Gorilla® Glass. The case may be plastic but it feels premium in the hand, especially with its stylish gradient back cover available in Comet Blue and Lunar Red.

2. Powerful processor
It runs on the Qualcomm® SnapdragonTM 632 mobile platform and boasts of an Antutu score of 52520, outperforming other phones in its price range. This gives the Redmi 7 support for a smooth gaming experience and makes it great for daily use.

3. Infrared (IR) Blaster
The Redmi 7 comes with an IR blaster that turns the phone into a universal remote to control devices and appliances. No need to search the whole house for the remote control, just use the Redmi 7.

4. Palm Shutter
Selfies can be hard to take, but not with the Redmi 7. Use its Palm Shutter feature to conveniently take pictures. Just flash a palm to the camera, like a high five, and the camera will instantly start a countdown timer perfect for getting selfies or groufies on point. Users should watch out because more gestures will be added soon.

5. 4,000 mAh battery
With a 4,000 mAh battery, the Redmi 7 can last up to 15 hours of continuous video playback, 26 hours of voice calls and an astounding 412 hours of standby time. Users can also listen to 3,778 tracks continuously on a single charge.

6. True dual sim tray
Many dual smartphones sport a hybrid sim card tray, where only one slot is dedicated to a sim card, and the other is a hybrid sim card-memory card slot. With the Redmi 7, on the other hand, users can have all three running at the same time with its three card tray - two slots for sim cards and one for the memory card. Perfect for people who want all their contacts and data in one device.

DARK OR WHITE, YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL

Thursday, April 4, 2019

Beauty should never have been one or the other, as claimed by SkinWhite in their new
campaign.

Dark Skin versus White Skin. Does it really matter? Does one always have to be superior over the other? SkinWhite is saying otherwise.

One would wonder why a skin whitening brand such as SkinWhite would dare to say that dark skin is beautiful. “It’s all about choice”, says Rachelle Layda, Marketing Manager for Whitening of Splash Corporation. “SkinWhite is a brand that empowers women to choose. A choice to define their own standard of beauty. If you choose to have dark skin, you are beautiful. If you choose to have white skin, you are just as beautiful. The choice is yours, and SkinWhite respects that choice”.



This inclusivity is refreshing and speak volumes, especially at a time when shaming and bullying is prevalent across social media. Bashers and haters abound online with no agenda but to shame in all forms and ways – body-shaming, hair-shaming, race-shaming, gender-shaming, and yes, also skin-shaming. “This is precisely the stigma that we wish to change. Skin color should not be about one being better than the other”, adds Pam Sulit, Splash Corporation’s VP for Marketing.

“White and dark are both beautiful.” confirms Rachel Villanueva, Creative Director of Petch & Partners, the creative agency that created this campaign for SkinWhite. She continues, “It’s about time that dark skin and white skin get the same adoration and acknowledgment.”

There has never been an outright claim that DARK IS BEAUTIFUL. And for the statement to come from a skin whitening brand, it should be easy for others to follow suit. And for those who choose that WHITE IS BEAUTIFUL, there’s due acknowledgement that they’re simply taking control of their beauty too. And why not? Wear your skin, whichever way you choose. Because DARK OR WHITE, YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL.
