Robinsons Bank is bringing smiles in the homes of children this Christmas

Sunday, December 20, 2020

In this Season of Giving, Robinsons Bank's promise of a brighter future for every Filipino took the path of donating electronic tablets to schoolchildren in various communities nationwide to help them cope with the requirements of online schooling for the coming year.

“Many families are still struggling with the setup of remote learning, whether it is the lack of a gadget to use or difficulty in accessing the internet. We wanted to provide support to these children so they can continue with their education and achieve the brighter future they deserve,” RBank President Elfren Antonio Sarte stated.

Mr. Sarte also added that “Our strong advocacy on financial literacy for children has led us to witness their eagerness and passion for learning. It would be disheartening to know that there are children out there who want to keep learning but have no means to. So, we pushed for this initiative to really help those children in need.”

In lieu of RBank’s corporate giveaways, the children received sim cards along with the electronic tablets, which they can use to access the internet for their online schooling.

Despite the challenges that this year has brought, the Bank’s passion for service remains unwavering. RBank will always be committed to fulfilling the needs of the Filipino people.

With Robinsons Bank, the future is bright!

Book review: Travel Asia Mini-Series by Paula Cabildo

Friday, December 18, 2020

"The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page"

Travel Asia Mini-Series aims to make your journey to some of the places in the biggest continent a breeze. It covers places including the author's home country, the Philippines, Siem Reap, Bali, and Malaysia. Having a home-based job gave her the luxury to work literally anywhere and it's a realization that we can also take advantage of doing the same.

Whether you're a workaholic or a couch potato, you can easily finish the 48-page book in one sitting. It's filled with description of the places which also includes transportation fares, duration of travel, and extremely handy tips like the one found in page 30 that says if you have a Philippine driver's license then you may use it to legally drive a car in that certain country. For a person like me who has never left the country, it makes me think how much I am missing. They said reading a book will take you places, well, this one truly does as it describes in detail the attractions around Asia. It's almost like you're travelling yourself. It's not only about the beautiful sceneries to see but it also enumerates tons of things to do that gets you excited and encourages you to book that dream Asian destination pronto!

As a person who loves to see pictures in books that I read, I am honestly yearning for more photographs. It's not that it's few but the pics are in black and white and it's totally understandable that it keeps the price of the book affordable. The pics just don't give justice to the the colorful description of the sceneries. On the contrary, it lets your imagination get to work. It makes you think that those tourist spots are better seen personally than watched from a video or seen from a photo of this book.

I used to be a homebody but reading this guide developed a strong, innate desire to travel about. I'd definitely keep it handy once I start my own Asian journey. Get your copy through this link

Revitalizing PH Tourism with “Hinahanap-Hanap Kita Manila”

Wednesday, December 16, 2020

The “Hinahanap-Hanap Kita Manila” online concert held last December 13 was a resounding hit! Aiming to promote Manila’s cultural heritage sites, the highly anticipated virtual concert succeeded in taking both local and international audiences at the edge of their seats for a unique and totally breath-taking spectacle. 

Hundreds of thousands of viewers of “Hinahanap-Hanap Kita Manila’s” live online broadcast were thrilled to watch and listen to great local artists perform the groundbreaking Manila sound of Hotdog, at different Manila heritage sites. Bras Pas Pas Pas Pas and Bing Austria performed the song “Annie Batungbakal” at the intimately charming Paco Park, Raymund Marasigan and Yeng Constantino gave an animated performance of the song “Beh, Buti Nga” at the Museo Pambata, Bea Lorenzo showed off the walled city of Intramuros as she sang “Langit Na Naman”, and Nicole Laurel Asensio provided an elegant rendition of Hotdog’s “Panaginip” at the gloriously restored Jones Bridge. Equally magnificent were Ebe Dancel and Blaster Silonga who serenaded viewers with the Hotdog classic “Ikaw ang Miss Universe” at the National Planetarium. Gary V and Armi Millare regaled audiences with the Hotdog standard “Manila” at Rizal Park, Luneta and,Team Vibe dancers who performed to “Bongga Ka ‘Day” at Manila City Hall’s Kartilya ng Katipunan, Lagusnilad and Kapetolyo in the finale. The mastering of the music was made possible by Rubber Inc and the foundation of all the songs, instruments, and arrangements were played by Bras Pas Pas Pas Pas, who also performed their rendition of “Una Sa Lahat”, “Pandesal Sa Umaga” and their own original tribute to Manila sound, “Disko Na.”

The music videos presented at the concert’s satellite locations were creatively directed by Juno Oebanda, RA Rivera, Paolo Valenciano, Jason Tan, Alco Guerrero and Quark Henares. The concert was produced by Juno Oebanda, Dindin Araneta and Jezreel Apelar with Department of Tourism Culture and Arts of Manila Chief Charlie Duñgo and National Parks Development Committee Executive Director Cecille Lorenzana Romero at the helm.

Tourism and the creative industry has been one of the hardest hit sectors of the economy due to the COVID-19 pandemic. But with the support of the Department of Tourism, Tourism Promotions Board Philippines, City of Manila, Juancare Foundation Inc., and Viva Music Publishing Inc. working together with the Department of Tourism, Culture and Arts of Manila (DTCAM), National Parks Development Committee (NPDC), Intramuros Administration (IA), National Museum of the Philippines (NMP), Nayong PIlipino Foundation (NPF), and Museo Pambata to mount concerts like “Hinahanap-Hanap Kita Manila”, revitalizing the Philippine tourism sector is well within grasp.

Canva’s ‘Makers And Shapers’ Report: The Designs That Defined 2020

Tuesday, December 15, 2020

Global graphic design platform, Canva, today released its inaugural end-of-year ‘Makers and Shapers’ Report, highlighting how users from around the world reacted to some of the biggest history-making events that took place in 2020.

From businesses navigating the COVID-19 pandemic, through to the catastrophic natural disasters that ravaged the Philippines, Canva’s global community of 40 million active users have designed and shared everything from social media posts to online presentations — to amplify, educate and inspire people with their message.

Explore the major trends from Canva’s data below, to understand how Filipinos, and those across the world, have used visual communications to help reach their goals this year:

COVID-19: The World Pivots As Misinformation Spreads

The impact of COVID-19 has been felt across the globe. Since March, Canva saw over 2.9 million search queries for COVID-related templates as the world came to grips with responding to the pandemic. Canva’s community turned to the design platform to create awareness posters, social media material, and WHO-approved health information in a bid to help #StopTheSpread of misinformation and keep communities COVID safe.

Canva’s in-house design team created more than 2,100 corona virus templates, backed by accurate information from the World Health Organization, that were made freely available amid the uncertainty, shared by news organizations, government bodies, and consumers across the globe.

Globally, over 14 million COVID templates were downloaded, with the top five most active countries using these templates among some of the hardest hit in terms of COVID-19 casualties, including USA, Brazil, Mexico, Indonesia, and Colombia.

Two of the most-used COVID-19 templates

Society Moves to a Virtual World

2020 was the year of the Zoom background, as more people were forced to shift to remote working, learning, and entertainment. Over 195,000 Filipinos downloaded templates for Zoom backgrounds, as meetings and gatherings were mostly held online. Leading the charge, users in the USA downloaded 1.3 million Zoom backgrounds alone — that equates to 1 in every 253 people across the country using a Canva Zoom background design this year. Globally, over 4 million Zoom backgrounds were created and downloaded on Canva.

With getaways to some of the world’s most adored holidays destinations off the cards this year, it seems most Canva users have expressed their dreams of a “tranquil” getaway through their Zoom backgrounds, with the top three most downloaded templates globally including a tropical beach, a peaceful waterfall, and a serene underwater seascape.

The most popular Canva Zoom background in the Philippines

Visual templates such as presentations were crucial in helping people communicate and collaborate remotely, with businesses, teams, educators, and students, all shifting to remote work.

Canva for Education, launched earlier this year, saw rapid uptake as online learning and virtual classrooms became the new norm. With over 700 new templates published to the education platform this year, the top five downloaded education templates for the year were:

2020: The Year of the Side Hustle

With many businesses impacted by COVID-19, the pandemic also sparked a new wave of innovators and creative entrepreneurs. 2020 saw people of all ages pivot to launch their mini side hustle, passion project, or new business, using Canva.

In the Philippines, around 3.3 million logos were created to date while the whole world registered record-breaking results:

● More than 65 million new logos were designed on Canva — that’s more than 7,400 new logos created every single hour (or over 123 every single minute) around the world

● Over 12 million business cards were printed globally through Canva Print — which is more than the entire population of Belgium!

Saving The World: Climate Change

Canva’s climate change collection templates were downloaded more than 2.6 million times as climate activists shared their passionate campaign messages via posters, social media material, and event flyers.

Greta Thunberg and David Attenborough were also among some of the most searched-for climate-related queries on the Canva platform.

Canva partnered with youth-led group, Future Coalition, to create assets for the 2020 Earth Day Digital Strikes. The colorful templates created by Canva’s in-house designers were used by thousands of digital strikers around the world.

Touching Tributes

And for those we lost in 2020, mourning fans paid their respects to passed icons through compelling and nostalgic design tributes. Kobe Bryant (January 26), Chadwick Boseman (August 28), and Ruth Bader Ginsberg (September 18) were among the most searched-for figures on the Canva platform this year as fans, supporters, and the media reacted to their passing with touching visual tributes on social media and beyond.

… And Finally, Some Fun Facts;

● Canva saw record growth in 2020, reaching over 40 million monthly active users.

● For those who love their fonts, the top three most used font types in the Philippines for 2020 were: Glacial Indifference, League Spartan, Anton

● On the bright side: Canva users were sharing the love in 2020, with the Heart textbox and Love symbol among the most used stickers this year. Most used stickers in the Philippines were:

● Primary colors were on point this year, being the most used colors in the

The Medical City Clinic recently opened its newest clinic at SM City San Jose del Monte to provide quality health services to Bulakeños.

(The Medical City Clinic is located at the 2nd level of SM City San Jose del Monte)

As its first clinic in the province of Bulacan, The Medical City Clinic gives Bulakeños, particularly the people of San Jose del Monte access to quality health services including laboratory, imaging services – X-ray and general Ob-Gyn Ultrasound, medical consultation, Heart Station – ECG and 2d Echo, and annual physical and pre-employment medical exams.

In addition, The Medical City Clinic offers a wide range of diagnostic and therapeutic procedures. The competent health professionals are skilled to provide care over time across specialties to offer a more unified approach.

The clinic is the second consecutive venture of The Medical City Clinic into a city outside National Capital region next to its clinic in SM City Dagupan. It also brings the total count of The Medical City Clinic’s network to 49.

Patients are encourage book an appointment beforehand, and may call (02) 8396-9899 for inquiries. Health protocols are still strictly implemented such as properly wearing of face mask and face shields, and physical distancing.

Located at the 2nd level of SM City San Jose del Monte, The Medical City Clinic will be open to serve its patients Monday to Sunday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Meanwhile, SM City San Jose del Monte continuously provide convenient and safer malling experience through its physical and online presence. For more updates visit SM City San Jose del Monte’s official Facebook Page https://www.facebook.com/SMCitySanJoseDelMonte.

No need to wait for 12.12! Here’s where you can get everything you need with free shipping

By now, you’ve probably gotten used to clicking the Add to Cart button and impatiently waiting for kuya or ate rider to arrive with your latest haul. Brick and mortar shops have gone digital and the number of online shops is growing by the minute – and these days, the new shoppers’ dilemma is which products to buy, which online shops to buy from, and most importantly, how to save on shipping fees.

If, like us, you’re feeling overwhelmed with the endless options, here’s a quick guide to your new basic needs now that you’re living an indoor lifestyle!

Health boosters

Unlike many things happening right now, staying in good shape is something that’s within your control. While wearing PPEs, practicing social distancing, and constantly washing your hands can help a lot, your best defense is to keep yourself healthy.

You can start with maintaining a well-balanced diet and making sure you’re getting important nutrients every day, like Vitamin C. It can be intimidating to know which vitamin brand to choose with so many of them out there, but there are brands like Nutrilite that go the extra mile to ensure quality by tracking the entire process of their plant-based supplements down to the very seed, and let you know all about it so you can be confident with your choices.

Home essentials

One of the most important things during this time is making sure to keep clean. Went out to pick up deliveries? Sanitize. Touched the elevator button? Sanitize. Everyone now stores a stash of disinfectants and has their own sanitation station at home, because nothing beats feeling safe and secure after cleaning up.

Since most alcohol products tend to dry the skin, look for disinfectants that have aloe ingredients to keep your hands soft – like Amway Pursue Hand Sanitizer. Keep your home and other items sparkling clean as well, using trusted effective brands such as PURSUE™ Disinfectant Cleaner.

Workout fuel

This quarantine lifestyle has us spending more time sitting and less time walking, so home workouts have become a must if you want to stay in shape. You probably already found one that suits you – weightlifting, dancing, HIIT – especially as more and more fitness facilities offer online classes. Even cycling studios have started selling stationary bikes so you can ride along with them at home.

Either way, home workouts are now part of your indoor grind along with chores, work, and virtual hangouts with friends. It sounds like a lot, honestly. That’s why another indoor essential we’ve identified is fuel, aka energy drink. Watching your sugar intake? Opt for sugar-free and carb-free brands, like XS Energy Drink!

Plantito and plantita needs

Have you hopped on the green thumb train? We don’t blame you! Aside from cleaning the air, giving you food, and making your home more beautiful, plants are quickly becoming the new pets. And you never have to worry about running out of new leafy babies to add to your collection since online plant shops seem to be sprouting everywhere, and you always have your food scraps which you can replant!

As you grow your plant collection and even try to grow your own food, don’t forget to keep them healthy. Use good quality soil and fertilizers so your plants grow lush and bountiful. If you’re not sure which plant vitamins to feed your leafy buddies, go for organic ones that are safe and effective, like Nutriplant’s.

Grooming necessities

Last but definitely not least – because grooming is an act of self-care and is still a must even when staying indoors all day. A good, cold shower can help lift your spirits on off-days (plus, your housemates will thank you for it!) and some self-love can ease your anxieties. If you’re one of those who put on makeup and dress up with nowhere to go just to cope with cabin fever, we applaud you.

Now is actually a great time to hone your make-up skills.
