One of the things we consider in choosing a product or service is the recall. This is where Branding comes into mind. It encompasses everything from your logo, the way customers are treated by your staff, the way their phone call is answered, your website, and even their social media experience.

Branding is a primary need. Branding is absolutely necessary. 

Branding is the entirety of how customers perceive you. A great brand is not made up overnight, but rather consists of a strategy that is well-thought-of. Startups make a huge mistake in rushing about their brand and disregard its impact.

Why is Branding important? Here are some reasons:

1. Branding establishes trust
The importance of gaining credibility is undeniably vital. Customers connect with your company at an emotional level. The best brands are exceptionally creative in advertising that it helps them break the wall of indifference and create the need for their product or service. A good review from other people can also add up to it. People love spreading news about the brands they love. As they say, word-of-mouth is the best kind of promotion.

2.A strong brand motivates employees
When employees understand what your mission is, they feel more motivated and take pride in their work. It gives them more reason to work better at their craft.

3.Branding makes you stand out from the rest of the pack.
In this day and age, your competition is no longer just in the local scene but a global one. With hundreds or thousands if not millions of organizations all over the world, how will you be distinguished?

4.Good brands do better in tough times.
Despite of economic challenges, brands will thrive in the years ahead and will outlive product life cycle. People do not simply buy products, they buy the brand. 

5.Your brand will get you recognized.
Familiarity makes it easier for people to get more at ease with your company and what it offers as long as your branding is consistent. 

One factor that composes your brand is your logo. What makes it great has a lot do with simplicity. It should be easy to recognize and so simple that it should take only one look and your viewers should be able to get the idea instantly. Nowadays, building a logo for your brand is less expensive and the wise brands do not take new tools for granted.  

Recently, I've been taking a look around for a great tool that can help me with creating a professional-looking logo for my new entertainment website (that still has no name yet). Since I have no idea where to start, I felt that Logojoy is what I've been looking for.  

It started with picking five logos from existing logo designs then came the selection of three colors. You may Google the colors associated with your product or service to get a better idea of what you need..After that is choosing five different icons from their image bank which you can browse after entering keywords. 

Logos are generated under twenty seconds. It's that fast and easy! Logojoy understands the importance of customization, thus the fonts and colors of the finished designs can still be changed and you can even add a slogan. It even comes with mock up items to get a better view of how it looks. 

If you need a little touch up or feel like getting professional assistance from their pros, more options are in store.

Choose from packages that will suit your needs: Basic, Premium, and Enterprise.

The Liquefied Petroleum Gas Industry Association (LPGIA), the largest LPG industry association in membership and resources, warns consumers against buying old Shellane cylinders as this may be dangerous for business establishments and households. 

The former Shellane rebranded to Solane in 2013 with a new look and design. And LPGIA advocates the safety of consumers by reminding them to be aware of the dangers when purchasing old, dilapidated, and unauthorized LPG tanks.

To spot them, consumers must watch out for tarnished cylinders. LPG tanks must be in good condition – they must be free of dents or holes and must not be rusty. Illegal tanks also bear unapproved safety caps and seals where the safety caps look old and serial numbers are unsanctioned. 

Consumers can also identify an illegal LPG retailer if it does not have the Standard Compliance Certificate issued by the Department of Energy. The certificate must be prominently displayed so it can easily be seen by the customers.

LPGIA also encourage its consumers to buy LPG cylinders only from authorized LPG outlets. To verify, contact your LPG brand’s customer hotline.

It’s the season of gift giving, and one of the most grueling parts of the holidays has finally come upon us – choosing just what to buy for our loved ones! While the amount we spend on someone shouldn’t reflect how we feel about them, it’s still important to be able to budget our spending on gifts.
Along these lines, we’ve prepared some great gift ideas for your loved ones that we’ve laid out into two popular budget ranges. Check them out and get ready for Christmas!

Under Php2500

Good earphones

The gift of high-quality music is precious. So do a little research and find a pair of great earphones that’s within budget for your music-loving friends.

Fountain pen

Once you’ve tried a fountain pen, you’ll never want to go back. Fountain pens are characterized by an incredible smoothness in the way they write, and will last forever if you take care of them.
You can get a really great fountain pen for Php1000-1500 – throw in a bottle of ink for about Php300-500 and you’re still under the budget!
If you buy it at Lazada you can get it for even less than P1,000. 🙂

Prepaid healthcare – Php2199/1599

They say that gifts are a way of showing someone that you care about them. You can translate that thoughtfulness into literal care with the MyMaxicare LITE prepaid healthcard!
mymaxicare liteFor a one-time payment of Php2199, the recipient of this gift can get up to Php25,000 coverage for any of 8 common diseases – dengue, chikungunya, malaria, typhoid and paratyphoid, cholera, gastroenteritis, leptospirosis, and pneumonia – valid for 1 year, and for patients between ages 2 and 60 years old.
Cardholders are covered for room and board, lab tests, professional fees and more, and even get additional discounts at select health services. You can also opt for a Php1599 card that has all of these benefits, though excluding access to major hospitals.

Under Php1000

Power bank

A good power bank with a thin and light profile but a big capacity like 5000 or 10000mAh will help your loved ones stay in touch with you – or at least allow them to play a few more rounds of Candy Crush.


These little dashboard-mounted cameras are soon going to be an essential part of driving around the slow and furious streets of the Philippines. They’re an amazing gift for anyone who drives regularly.

Prepaid healthcare – Php549/749

maxicare ereadyEven at this lower price range, you can find great prepaid healthcare options. Maxicare’s EReady prepaid health card provides up to Php15,000 coverage on emergency medical conditions, inclusive of ER fees, dressings, casts, and sutures, IV fluids and blood products, and more.

Quid Pro Quo takes home PHP 50,000.00 and will be flying to Indonesia to represent the Philippines in the finals.

Setting the mood for an intense competition, the High Grounds Café was adorned with black stone boulders, crystals, snow, and grass to create an ice dungeon representative of Predator Gaming’s frost-forged vibe. This set-up served as the backdrop for the Philippine finals, putting a dramatic end to the national leg.

Predator Gaming established Predator League as a means to empower amateur gamers to showcase their skills and talent on a global scene. Endeavoring to discover and put the spotlight on both professional and non-professional gamers, Predator League aims to capture fresh talent from the Philippines and the Pan Asia Pacific region’s bustling amateur eSports scene, particularly for DOTA:2.

"The Philippine leg of Asia Pacific Predator League 2018 has come to a momentous end, and we could not be any happier with the level of skill and sportsmanship we have witnessed here in the Philippines," shares Andrew Hou, President of Predator Gaming Pan Asia Pacific Region. "Still, we see potential for tremendous growth. We are excited to unearth what we know for sure are incredible gaming talents in the Philippines. More than that, we are hopeful that we will be able to recruit more people to summon their strength and to discover the wonderful world of Predator Gaming."

In the Philippines, the Predator League 2018 eliminations saw the participation of 127 registered teams. All elimination legs were done in partnership with THENET.COM (TNC), the gaming company’s eSports partner. Predator League also supports the Philippine DotA pride, TNC Pro Team-DotA 2.

"The astounding reception we have enjoyed in this year’s competition has confirmed that the eSports scene in the country is booming," shares Eric Redulfin, General Manager of TNC.

So you’ve got your festive outfit set and the fancy gift wrapped for your "monito" or "monita". All that’s left undone is a party season-perfect hairstyle. 

The fresh out of the shower look can be seductive yet temporary. Blame it to tropical climate, it can spoil your appearance, besides making you feel sweaty and stale. The heat and humidity brought about by extreme weather condition, likewise, dries out the locks easily and make it more fragile. 

Adding damage to your delicate strands are the chemical contents of various products on hand. From shampoo to conditioner and hair treatment, down to styling goods to groom it to your liking, their harsh synthetic materials jeopardize the natural oil and luster of your mane.

Because you are what you eat, the fate of your crowning glory is in the plate. Your diet must have the correct balance of vitamins and minerals to supply hair with all that it needs to become shiny and strong. So don’t overindulge, especially this time of the year when gastronomic feasts are spread almost everywhere you go. Be careful on what you take in, thinking that it’s also what you feed your ‘do.
Even stress can wear off the beauty and health of the tress. And that’s exactly what you should avoid this Yuletide season. Never put pressure on yourself just to please everyone. Just take it easy, let your hair down and party all night long.
