Famed American writer and essayist Flannery O’Connor wrote a short story titled “Everything that Rises Must Converge.” It is a story reflective of the times. It was written when integration was a new concept not every American was willing to accept. It is a story of going beyond what society expects, of stripping away pretensions and prejudices, of acceptance of change.

The title of the story was actually taken from a quote by French Philosopher and Jesuit priest Pierre Teilhard de Chardin. He wrote, “Remain true to yourself, but move ever upward toward greater consciousness and greater love! At the summit you will find yourselves united with all those who, from every direction, have made the same ascent. For everything that rises must converge.”

Age Defying Solutions founder and CEO Aiza Diuco believes that women should help each other rise by sharing their skills and know-how, by mentoring, and volunteering their time to ensure that every woman is given a chance to have a better future.

She recently founded The Glupa Women’s Club, a club by women for women. The young CEO will kick off the club’s activities with a series of talks and workshops aimed to help women in the metro and beyond harness the female power. She sees the club as a civic organization and a way of giving back to the community which has been very good to her.
Ms. Diuco is no stranger to hardships. She has shared with the writer the struggles she had to face when she first started in the beauty industry - from giving up a lifestyle to which she had grown accustomed to picking up the pieces of her shattered life.

Ms. Diuco is grateful for her education, her work experience, and love for research. Because of these, she was able to realize her life’s biggest dream – to start her own business.
Some might dismiss her success and underestimate the amount of hard work she has put into making her company grow. They might even say she was already rich to begin with, and that her father probably gave her the money to start her company.

While she is grateful for the love and support of her family, Ms. Diuco can proudly say that Age Defying Solutions is the result of her hard work. It was a backyard business which has grown exponentially over the years, thanks to her stellar stewardship and the amazing people she works with.

Let me introduce to you Jelai Espino a 15 year old who wants to be an artist. She lives to sing, dance and act. Jelai was introduced to us via a bloggers conference held a few days ago, we were given a cd with her as the front cover with a song entitled "Huwag Mong Biruin" composed by no other than Mr. Vehnee Saturno.

Throughout the blogcon, I learned that she is a Taylor Swift fan and also loves K-pop but when asked any local or OPM influence, she has none. It was kinda surprising to hear but at least she was honest. In terms of acting, Jelai would like to venture into drama, she really wants to cry in front of the camera and mentioned Daniel Padilla and James Reid whom she wants to work with in the future. Her ultimate dream si to work with the Star for All Seasons, Ms Vilma Santos, it doesn't matter what role will be given to her, she just wants to actually meet Gov Vi.

My first impressions of Jelai, she is shy and lacks confidence (she admits to this). Because she has a single, we asked for a sample but she declined saying that her throat wasn't feeling well. We also asked for a dance sample and again was declined. I believe part of the reasons was her shyness. I hope she improves on this because as a performer, she will be often asked to do a song or dance number on impromtu. Jelai could also improve her knowledge in the local showbiz world, she will be meeting a lot artists and to not be able to identify them is a no-no. And lastly. I hope she dress up her age or improve on her look, after all she is young and pretty so dressing up appropriately will improve her self confidence (it seems she wasn't comfortable with what she was wearing or is it just me? Lol!).

I believe Jelai can be someone someday, in an industry such as showbiz, entering may be tough but staying in is a whole new story. Goodluck Jelai and I hope to see you soon on the big screen or in an album launch.

Jelai Espino Is Coming...

As part of this year’s celebration of the Gifted Awareness Month, PROMIL® Four, in partnership with the Philippine Center for Gifted Education (PCGE), conducted a Learning Workshop, that features expert speakers in the field of Developmental Pediatrics, Clinical Psychology, Obstetrics, Health & Wellness, Arts, and Nutrition, recently at the Sofitel Philippines Plaza Manila in Pasay City.

The said event is in line with the brand’s theme of “Shaping the Gift to Build Tomorrow’s Greats.” It gathered celebrity and blogger parents, who participated in a series of workshops and activities in a bid to educate them on the importance of building a strong foundation for their child’s learning abilities. 

According to Dra. Leticia Ho, Clinical Psychologist/Neurotherapist and President of Philippine Center for Gifted Education, the future will be different for children. In the face of an ever-changing world, they will need to learn a different set of skills. The best period to nurture these abilities lies in the crucial first 1,000 days of the child, starting with the mother’s pregnancy. It is during these days that the child responds and adapts to different interventions.



“A child’s development results from an ongoing and cumulative process of nurturing. This means that your child’s brain development can be affected by both environmental and intrinsic factors,” added Ho. “This event aims to educate the parents on the proper tools and approach to help shape their child’s gift. With the proper parenting, proper stimulation, and proper nutrition we believe that your child can reach his full potential.”




PROMIL® Four’s Learning Workshop highlights three different activities that show the advantage of multi-dimensional development in nurturing a child’s gift to its full potential. These activities are based on three learning zones focused on the physical, mental, and socio-emotional development.

The physical activity focused on the importance of growth and immunity to strengthen physical agility through a yoga class. As a productive meditation activity, it showed how yoga can stimulate body movement and sensory experiences for children. It also promotes multi-dimensional learning as it encourages balance and coordination, focus and concentration, mind and body connection, and self-awareness and mindfulness.


Meanwhile, the mental activity featured an art workshop developed to encourage recognition and memory. This activity focused on bringing the experience on how art can develop a child’s memory through storytelling and painting while inculcating repetitive practices and rhythms.

Lastly, the camp also has a social activity, through a giant block game, focused on the need of being socially adept for better learning. It underlined how an imaginative game can promote strong leadership qualities in children through imagination, communication, and collaboration.






Meanwhile, PROMIL® Four’s Learning Camp also emphasized the importance nutrition plays in supporting a child’s advanced learning abilities. “Proper nutrition plays an essential role in your child’s brain development. With the right nutrients, it can further support a child’s advanced learning abilities,” added Ma. Neva Luna Batayola, Medical Director.

To end the event, Dra. Leticia Penano-Ho, President of Phil Center for Gifted Education gave a key take away message and that is “Every child has the talent which can be a Gift if discovered and nurtured early. It is the parent’s role to make the child’s talent reach his full potential, or else that gift could just be there untapped and undiscovered.”

Aside from the Learning Workshop, this year, PROMIL® Four is also partnering with Atlantis Production. They will be showcasing awe-inspiring talents in the local production of Matilda the Musical, a theater play that features the story of a gifted child.

The three child actors, who will portray the lead role of the play are Esang De Torres of ABS-CBN’s “The Voice Kids” and “Les Miserables” Asian Tour; Uma Naomi Martin of “A Little Princess”; and Gawad Musika’s Outstanding Child Performer, Felicity Kyle Napuli. This musical play will run from November 10 to December 10, 2017. Promil Four is raffling out free Matilda tickets, visit www.promilfour-matilda.com for more information.

PROMIL® Four has long been known for nurturing the young Filipino’s gift. It is specially formulated for children above three years old and is the only brand that contains NUTRISSENTIALS®—the combination of the unique and important nutrients that help support mental & physical development to help Nurture the Gift, together with balanced diet and healthy lifestyle.

Ken Chan and Barbie Forteza were super excited during the Premiere Night of their movie “This Time I’ll Be Sweeter” I was personally there to witness it and I will be attaching the video clip on down below:



I will now go ahead and do my first impressions on the movie:
 Both Ken and Barbie were loveable on cam. Ken looks the matinee, kayumanggi pinoy boy next door while Barbie is so flawless and had cute outfits.

 Acting wise, they were very natural and kinda made me feel they were just my friends.

         Casting was good but there were scenes that I personally think was not necessary.
          
           I love Jai and I know she is naturally funny together with her twin. But in the movie there were lines that I know should’ve made us laugh or giggle but I didn’t.

      Finally the ending, (spoiler alert) it was okay but for me when Barbie said the line “Gusto kong umoo… ayaw ko magpdala sa emotion… parang wala akong natutunan.” I was expecting that it was a “NO” and then fast forward to 2 years after and then the “YES”. Why? To show that true love waits and that they both carried a lesson from their mistakes.

Nevertheless the two achieved the “Kilig Factor” and really registered beautifully on screen. Congratulations to the whole cast and crew, to Regal Films for another good movie! Cheers!

This Time I'll Be Sweeter Now Showing!

FYI: I felt that the “bubong” scenes were the best. (It was shot in our neighborhood lol!)

The movie is about second chances, or so it seems. In love, how many chances can one give to someone who has hurt them yet loves them truly. Let’s get to know some answers as the movie opens on November 8 in cinemas nationwide. Brought to us by Regal Films and directed by Joel Lamangan.

Another Filipina is awarded in the 100 MOST INFLUENTIAL FILIPINA IN THE WORLD.
Dina Dela Paz-Stalder, a skincare expert, was awarded with this prestigious recognition, specifically in the Founder and Pioneer Category (Global FWN100 Award) in Toronto, Canada on October 27, 2017, by Filipino Women’s Network. She was selected from an outstanding field of nominees from around the world.

The Global FWN100 Award™ recognizes 100 Filipino women who are changing the face of leadership in the global workplace.  It distinguishes them for their outstanding work in their respective fields, and further recognizes them for their achievement and contributions to society.  Dina Dela Paz-Stalder’s award and global recognition is another evidence of Filipino pride as she proves that Filipinos are also global leaders in terms of skincare innovations and extraordinary leadership.


Started from just a small steel pot for skincare formulations,  she now owns and leads the Stalder Group of Companies which includes  Stalder Laboratories Incorporation (a cGMP-certified, Halal-certified and FDA-approved manufacturing plant located in San Pablo, Laguna),  the BCP Dermatological Corporation (the marketing arm),  and the Diana Stalder Face, Body, Skincare Center (formerly known as Dermaline Facial Center).



Aside from being an entrepreneur, Dela Paz-Stalder is a strong advocate for causes such as the environment and community development.
For community development, it would have been easier to build a factory in an industrial zone, but as a farmer’s daughter, the grit and determination that served her well in business is something she applies equally to her advocacies.  So she opted instead to empower her town mates, and give back to her hometown. As far as environment is concerned, at all levels of production, she is adamant about waste segregation and sludge/water recycling. Working with the Mother Earth foundation, the community has also produced malunggay tea, mushrooms, and green charcoal. With this, Dela Paz-Stalder was recognized with a blue ribbon award from the Laguna Lake Development Authority, an honor bestowed upon environmentally responsible businesses. 


"I feel overwhelmed with this recognition, as I did not expect to be given this prestigious award.. Being one of the Most Influential Filipina Woman in the World Award: Founder & Pioneer gives me the opportunity to show my capability as a Filipino and as a woman in inspiring business entrepreneurs. Now, I am more motivated to encourage more people with my story - from my humble beginnings to the dazzling height of success. May we all continue to work together, nurture and empower this unique group, FWN," said Dela Paz-Stalder.

Maris has already a few accomplishments under her belt as a budding celebrity, but she still considers her recent Vivo endorsement a dream come true. “I have always wanted to [endorse a phone brand],” Maris says in a brief interview held in between photo shoots for the top smartphone brand. “That is why when my handler told me [that I have been chosen to endorse Vivo], I was so happy.”
Maris was introduced as one of the Vivo influencers at the launch of the young and hip global smartphone brand’s latest pride the V7+. She is part of the fresh roster of Vivo endorsers known collectively as the Vivo Family. On top of being an independent talent, Maris also makes up half of the Marni go” love team with Inigo Pascual, another Vivo influencer and member of the pioneer batch of the Vivo Family. The twosome was formed by chance when the duo made headlines when they performed onstage for Inigo’s digital concert.
Apart from being part of “Marnigo”, Maris has a lot of good things on her plate and all the highlights of her days can now be preserved in memories through her own Vivo V7+“I look super fresh [in my selfies] even without make-up,” she happily remarks, swearing by the selfie-taking prowess of the Vivo V7+. The V7+ boasts of one of the world’s first 24MP 24MPclearer selfie, front facing camera with LED flash and smart photography algorithms provides for a clear-cut, crisp, and natural-looking photo. To further enhance photos, the V7+ packs in a built in Bokeh effect which creates an aesthetic quality of out of focus blur in photos.
Being a musician herself, Maris is also thrilled over the V7+’s fully-upgraded AK4376A Hi-Fidelity audio chip. This V7+ feature supports the latest sound technology and levels up mobile audio technology, enabling any music lover to enjoy rich and full rhythms. This audio chip also plays music which answers to the mood or scenario at hand.
