Parents know all too well how difficult it is to deal with a child’s tantrums. When a child reaches pre-schooler age, this problematic behaviour comes out and parents, not really knowing what to do, just grin and bear it, and just basically brace for the inevitable.     

Children can often display “bratty” behaviour either towards their parents or other people because they cannot properly articulate their feelings yet or struggle with handling their emotions.

At this age, behaviour regulation, or the ability to use self-control to behave in socially acceptable ways is not well developed yet. This can manifest as tantrums and are sometimes triggered by an outburst of emotions such as anger, frustration, anxiety, and irritability.

To avoid these behaviours among pre-schoolers, parents should learn how to develop and nurture their child’s emotional intelligence by teaching them how to better understand and control their emotions.

In his book entitled, “Raising an Emotionally Intelligent Child; The Heart of Parenting,” Dr. John Gottman offers tips on how parents can better deal with their child’s emotional outbursts.

He advises parents to become more aware of their child’s emotions. The first step to improving their behaviour is to recognize that there is an array of feelings that a child has to deal with, such as disappointment or anger, which they might not be able to completely understand yet, or know how to handle.

Parents should also be more observant and listen to what their child is trying to say or express. They should be able to validate their child’s emotions, empathizing with them, and making them understand that what they are feeling is normal.

Dr. Gottman further recommends helping the child to find the words that best identifies what they are feeling. Labelling these correctly can help them better deal with their emotions. It likewise helps the parents themselves be more aware of what their child is going through.

Aside from a parent’s guidance, proper nutrition plays a vital role towards developing a pre-schooler’s emotional intelligence or more commonly known as “EQ”.

A recent breakthrough in pediatric nutrition is the milk fat globule membrane or MFGM. It is the milk fat’s coating which contains life-enhancing components. MFGM supports a child’s IQ development and is clinically proven to improve behavioural regulation among children.

A study[1] conducted by Genevieve Veereman-Wauters established that children who consumed formula enriched with MFGM demonstrated significantly improved parent-reported scores for behavioral regulation compared to children receiving control formula without MFGM enrichment.

But what’s really exciting experts is that for the first time in history, MFGM can be extracted from cow’s milk and added to a children’s milk formula: only in Enfagrow A+ Four.

Given the most recent advances in pediatric nutrition, parents can now make healthier choices for their children, enabling and empowering them to better understand their child’s “bratty” behaviour, and knowing that they now can do something about it.

QUEZON CITY, Nov. 20, 2017 - Unioil Petroleum Philippines Inc. (Unioil) has partnered with the Department of Environment and Natural Resources-Environmental Management Bureau (DENR-EMB) to establish a reliable network of air quality monitoring stations in various locations nationwide.

The petroleum company has already installed numerous AirVisual monitors— ambient air monitoring instruments—mostly at Unioil service stations, to transmit live data to the internet, as part of its commitment to making relevant air quality information available to the DENR and millions of Filipinos.

“This memorandum of agreement manifests our support to DENR’s mandate to protecting the environment and its key objective of preparing a national air quality status report. We believe that this is a major step towards providing cleaner air for the next generation,” said Unioil president Kenneth Pundanera, who added that the report will be used as a basis in formulating an integrated air quality improvement framework.

“We are proud to offer DENR live data from our active air quality monitoring stations. Through this agreement, we shall further expand the installations of our air quality monitoring stations in full support of the programs of the DENR,” Pundanera added.

The DENR welcomes the support of Unioil in helping address the problem of poor air quality. “This is the first time that an industry player as big as Unioil is helping the department in addressing this kind of problem. We really welcome the assistance and support of Unioil,” said DENR undersecretary Atty. Jonas Leones.

The AirVisual monitors provided by Unioil are state-of-the-art air quality monitoring instruments that use laser sensors to measure hazardous particulate matter down to 2.5 micro meters size (PM2.5). It also uses the latest technology like big data, artificial intelligence, and the internet to provide a visual image of air quality in the Philippines to millions of people through an air quality mobile app.

The partnership is expected to boost the DENR’s capability to pursue their mandate of ensuring a cleaner and safer air under the Clean Air Act of 1999.

During the ceremony, the Clean Air Philippines Movement, Inc., a strong advocate of clean air in the Philippines, also awarded Unioil as its first corporate clean air champion. This is in recognition of Unioil’s initiatives of introducing cleaner fuels, such as Euro 5, launching of the first solar powered gas station and electric vehicle charging station, and the deployment of air quality monitoring stations in the Philippines.


The latest effort of Unioil is part of its “Doing Our Part” campaign which encourages Filipinos to make a difference in society through the small, everyday actions and responsible decisions they make, including the decision to choose a cleaner fuel.

About Unioil Petroleum Philippines, Inc.
Unioil Petroleum Philippines, Inc. traces its roots back to 1966 and is currently engaged in fuels trading, retail station operations, lubricants blending and distribution, specialty oils marketing, and distribution of bitumen (asphalt). This makes Unioil one of the country’s most diverse and innovative petroleum companies.
Unioil has also been the exclusive licensed blender and distributor of Idemitsu lubricants since 1994. Idemitsu, a leading Japanese oil company, is the eighth largest lubricants brand in the world.
Unioil has become the pioneer in offering the cleanest and most innovative products in the market. On September 2017, Unioil became the first and only retail station in the Philippines to release a complete line of Euro5-compliant fuels, compared to Euro4 fuels offered by its leading competitors. Unioil’s Euro 5 fuels are 5x cleaner than the current Philippine standard – with a maximum sulfur content of 10 parts per million (10ppm).

I am sharing this because I love how Main stayed true to herself. Love you Meng.

An Open Letter To Our This


Hi! You might be wondering what this letter is about. Ako din, I am wondering what this letter is going to be about. I do not actually know how to start writing this letter; and I do not actually know either if it is right to do this. All I know for sure is I need to let some things out of my chest. And I couldn’t find any other way to do it so I am writing here on my blog, like I used to.
Bago ang lahat gusto ko muna magpasalamat sainyo. Sa lahat ng suporta at pagmamahal na ibinigay at ipinakita niyo sa amin. Sa mga bagay na isinakripisyo niyo alang-alang sa akin/aming dalawa ni Alden. At sa lahat ng iba niyo pang nagawa lalong-lalo na ang pagtulong niyo sa kapwa. Habang buhay akong magpapasalamat sa Diyos dahil dumating kayo sa buhay ko at nakilala ko kayo. Maraming salamat sa panahon at sa pagkakataon.
By the end of this letter I am pretty sure majority of you are going to turn your backs on me and probably hate on me. Pero sabi nga nila, speak the truth even if your voice shakes.
When I was new in the business, you all came to my life and loved me for exactly the way I am. Hindi ko kinailangang magpanggap para mahalin niyo. At nagpapasalamat ako dahil tinanggap at minahal niyo kung sino at ano ako bilang tao. Nagpapasalamat din ako sa Diyos siyempre dahil binigyan niya ako “kakayahan” at pagkakataon na magbigay ligaya sa iba. I honestly could not be more thankful for the gift of making people happy by just being myself. I believe that is a rarity here in the world of show business, but I am really thankful God had given me that some kind of knack. Maaaring wala nga akong talento pero masaya ako na nakakapagpasaya ako ng ilang mga tao. That’s more then enough for me.
I used to be REALLY amazed by the support AlDub was getting back then. I was overwhelmed by all the attention and support you are giving us. AlDub Nation 2015, ang saya saya lang. When everyone was taking things lightly and we were all just so happy. Do you still remember the good ol’ days? Back when things are so not complicated? Still worth remembering up to this time. Two years later, a lot has changed but some things remained the same. Masaya pa din kayo. I can see how happy you guys are whenever you are all together. Iba yung saya niyo tuwing magkakasama kayo. Masasabi kong ibang klase yung pagkakaibigan at samahan na nabuo sa pagsuporta niyo sa amin. At hindi ako magsasawang ulit-ulitin na sana huwag mawala yan kahit ano pa ang mangyari.
Marami kayong nagagawa hindi lang para sa amin ni Alden, kundi para na din sa iba. Marami kayong ibang natutulungan na mas higit na nangangailangan. At nagpapasalamat ako dahil ginagawa niyo yan ng kusa, dahil mayroon kayong busilak na kalooban. Salamat dahil ultimo kayo ay nakakapagpasaya din ng iba pang mga tao.
I am grateful to have all of you who have walked this path with me. But I need to be honest, I am at this point where I feel like I live in a boxI have not been able to do what I want and say what I feel because every time I try to express my thoughts and feelings, some of you tend to misapprehend and invalidate them in so many ways. Telling me I am not supposed to feel that way because I am “rich and famous”. Telling me I have no right to be sad and hurt because I have everything a person could ask for. Judging, blaming and getting mad at me for expressing what I truly feel just because you do not agree and it is inconvenient for you. Dictating me what I should feel and should not feel. Ang hirapYung mga taong nagsasabi na wala akong dapat na maramdaman kundi kaligayahan kasi pinagpapala ako at dapat akong magpasalamat sakanila (at sakanila lang) dahil “wala naman ako kung wala sila”. Do not get me wrong, I am thankful for everything I have right now. And I have the Lord and the people who helped and supported me along the way to thank for that. I just could not take how some people feel so entitled in so many things, hindi lang sa career, ultimo personal na buhayMinsan nga tinatanong ko ang sarili ko, sino ba talaga ang gumawa sa akin? Ang Diyos ba o silaPagmamay-ari ba nila buong pagkatao ko para diktahan ako sa halos lahat ng bagay? Bakit ganun? Ganun ba dapat kapag mahal mo yung tao? Susubukan mong kontrolin ng naaayon sa kagustuhan mo? Dahil tingin mo yun yung tama? Dahil tingin mo doon siya liligaya?
Dumating yung araw na naramdaman ko na para bang hindi na ako masaya. Na kahit sandamakmak ang biyaya ang natatanggap ko, nawala na yung ligaya sa puso koHindi ko na makita yung tuwa sa mga ngiti ko at kinang sa mga mata ko. Hanggang sa napagtanto ko na iyon pala ay dahil sa ilang mga tao na nakapaligid sa akin. Yung mga taong akala ko ay tunay na nagmamalasakit at nagmamahal sa akin. Mahirap. Nahihirapan akong dinidiktahan ng mga dapat kong gawin at maramdaman. Napagtanto ko na nakokompromiso na yung kalayaan at kaligayahan ko. At hindi ko kayang mamuhay ng ganoon. I want to be able to do what I want and what makes me happy because I believe that is how life should be. I do not want to compromise my own happiness for other people’s desires. So this time, I am choosing myself. Ako naman.
When AlDub happened, everything escalated. My life changed drastically when Kalyeserye began. We’ve had blessings on top of blessings. Alden and I were given so much more than we could ask for. But more than anything, we will be forever thankful that God had given us people like you. People who support us in the things we do; those who always stood by our sides and defended us against judgments and criticisms; those who love us truthfully as a pair and as two different individuals; and those who never gave up. And for all the love and efforts you have given us, you deserve to know the truth that at this very moment Alden and I are just friends. We are a love team.
I hope you understand that I am here because I love making people happy. I am blessed to be in Eat Bulaga because I get to do what I want to do, and I get to be with such amazing people. I was never into money or fame. All I want in this life is to be free and happy. And I am certain that no amount of fame and money can ever give me genuine happiness. All my life I have been seeking love from people around me. And that is all that matters to me at this moment. As I have said, as you finish reading this letter, a lot of you would probably turn your backs on me. I am ready for it; I knew this day would come. Even if I am left with a small number of supporters after posting this, kahit sampu lang yan, for as long as I know (and I feel) they truly love me and care for me, I’ll be fine. Or even if I am left with none, I have family and friends who love me dearly and will never leave my side whatever happens. Sapat na yun para sa akin.
I also owe this to everyone who were dragged into this. Our families, friends, and workmates are being bashed and ridiculed by some. Kahit sinong madikit sa amin pinagiisipan at pinagsasalitaan ng hindi magandaBasta hindi naaayon sa kagustuhan ang mga nakikita, nagagalit. It hurts me seeing them being hurt. It hurts me how some of you are so capable and so proud of throwing so much hate on others– especially on people who care about us. Family and friends outside the industry are being taken into the wrong context, even if they do not have anything to do with the issues thrown at us. Hiling ko ang ay sana bigyan natin sila ng respeto. Naiintindihan ko na pinoprotektahan niyo lang kami, at nagpapasalamat ako sa lahat ng ginagawa niyong pagtatanggol sa amin, pero sana maintindihan niyo din na hindi kailangan maliitin ang pagkatao ng iba. Hindi niyo sila kailangan tirahin ng masasamang salita, Alam kong karamihan ng pinagdadaanan ko ngayon ay parte ng mundong ginagalawan ko. But some things are really getting out of hand, kailangan na din natin ilagay sa wasto. But then again, I know, that at the end of the day, love wins over hate. I still believe, and I fervently hope, that the same love who brought all of us here together in the beginning, will heal all scars and unite us again. Let us not focus on those who judge, but to those who love without any hesitations and expectations. I am who I am right now because of that.
Again, thank you very much for the love and support you have given me. I will forever cherish the presence of the whole fandom in my life. I do hope I have also given you enough joy for you to give me the freedom I believe I deserve. Freedom to feel what I want to feel, be what I want to be, and do what I want to do.
Alden deserves the same, too.
With so much gratitude,
That Girl

Maine Mendoza: An Open Letter To Our Fans




I am sharing this because I love how Main stayed true to herself. Love you Meng.

An Open Letter To Our This


Hi! You might be wondering what this letter is about. Ako din, I am wondering what this letter is going to be about. I do not actually know how to start writing this letter; and I do not actually know either if it is right to do this. All I know for sure is I need to let some things out of my chest. And I couldn’t find any other way to do it so I am writing here on my blog, like I used to.
Bago ang lahat gusto ko muna magpasalamat sainyo. Sa lahat ng suporta at pagmamahal na ibinigay at ipinakita niyo sa amin. Sa mga bagay na isinakripisyo niyo alang-alang sa akin/aming dalawa ni Alden. At sa lahat ng iba niyo pang nagawa lalong-lalo na ang pagtulong niyo sa kapwa. Habang buhay akong magpapasalamat sa Diyos dahil dumating kayo sa buhay ko at nakilala ko kayo. Maraming salamat sa panahon at sa pagkakataon.
By the end of this letter I am pretty sure majority of you are going to turn your backs on me and probably hate on me. Pero sabi nga nila, speak the truth even if your voice shakes.
When I was new in the business, you all came to my life and loved me for exactly the way I am. Hindi ko kinailangang magpanggap para mahalin niyo. At nagpapasalamat ako dahil tinanggap at minahal niyo kung sino at ano ako bilang tao. Nagpapasalamat din ako sa Diyos siyempre dahil binigyan niya ako “kakayahan” at pagkakataon na magbigay ligaya sa iba. I honestly could not be more thankful for the gift of making people happy by just being myself. I believe that is a rarity here in the world of show business, but I am really thankful God had given me that some kind of knack. Maaaring wala nga akong talento pero masaya ako na nakakapagpasaya ako ng ilang mga tao. That’s more then enough for me.
I used to be REALLY amazed by the support AlDub was getting back then. I was overwhelmed by all the attention and support you are giving us. AlDub Nation 2015, ang saya saya lang. When everyone was taking things lightly and we were all just so happy. Do you still remember the good ol’ days? Back when things are so not complicated? Still worth remembering up to this time. Two years later, a lot has changed but some things remained the same. Masaya pa din kayo. I can see how happy you guys are whenever you are all together. Iba yung saya niyo tuwing magkakasama kayo. Masasabi kong ibang klase yung pagkakaibigan at samahan na nabuo sa pagsuporta niyo sa amin. At hindi ako magsasawang ulit-ulitin na sana huwag mawala yan kahit ano pa ang mangyari.
Marami kayong nagagawa hindi lang para sa amin ni Alden, kundi para na din sa iba. Marami kayong ibang natutulungan na mas higit na nangangailangan. At nagpapasalamat ako dahil ginagawa niyo yan ng kusa, dahil mayroon kayong busilak na kalooban. Salamat dahil ultimo kayo ay nakakapagpasaya din ng iba pang mga tao.
I am grateful to have all of you who have walked this path with me. But I need to be honest, I am at this point where I feel like I live in a boxI have not been able to do what I want and say what I feel because every time I try to express my thoughts and feelings, some of you tend to misapprehend and invalidate them in so many ways. Telling me I am not supposed to feel that way because I am “rich and famous”. Telling me I have no right to be sad and hurt because I have everything a person could ask for. Judging, blaming and getting mad at me for expressing what I truly feel just because you do not agree and it is inconvenient for you. Dictating me what I should feel and should not feel. Ang hirapYung mga taong nagsasabi na wala akong dapat na maramdaman kundi kaligayahan kasi pinagpapala ako at dapat akong magpasalamat sakanila (at sakanila lang) dahil “wala naman ako kung wala sila”. Do not get me wrong, I am thankful for everything I have right now. And I have the Lord and the people who helped and supported me along the way to thank for that. I just could not take how some people feel so entitled in so many things, hindi lang sa career, ultimo personal na buhayMinsan nga tinatanong ko ang sarili ko, sino ba talaga ang gumawa sa akin? Ang Diyos ba o silaPagmamay-ari ba nila buong pagkatao ko para diktahan ako sa halos lahat ng bagay? Bakit ganun? Ganun ba dapat kapag mahal mo yung tao? Susubukan mong kontrolin ng naaayon sa kagustuhan mo? Dahil tingin mo yun yung tama? Dahil tingin mo doon siya liligaya?
Dumating yung araw na naramdaman ko na para bang hindi na ako masaya. Na kahit sandamakmak ang biyaya ang natatanggap ko, nawala na yung ligaya sa puso koHindi ko na makita yung tuwa sa mga ngiti ko at kinang sa mga mata ko. Hanggang sa napagtanto ko na iyon pala ay dahil sa ilang mga tao na nakapaligid sa akin. Yung mga taong akala ko ay tunay na nagmamalasakit at nagmamahal sa akin. Mahirap. Nahihirapan akong dinidiktahan ng mga dapat kong gawin at maramdaman. Napagtanto ko na nakokompromiso na yung kalayaan at kaligayahan ko. At hindi ko kayang mamuhay ng ganoon. I want to be able to do what I want and what makes me happy because I believe that is how life should be. I do not want to compromise my own happiness for other people’s desires. So this time, I am choosing myself. Ako naman.
When AlDub happened, everything escalated. My life changed drastically when Kalyeserye began. We’ve had blessings on top of blessings. Alden and I were given so much more than we could ask for. But more than anything, we will be forever thankful that God had given us people like you.

The Vivo V7 launch was a big success as it brought the topnotch brand closer to its audience with a grand unveiling last November 18 at the SM City Bacolod Event Center North Wing. The V7 launch was headlined by the hottest boy band in the country and Vivo celebrity influencer Boyband PH. Joao Constancia, Niel Murillo, Tristan Ramirez, Russell Reyes, Ford Valencia graced the stage with their upbeat performances at the much-anticipated launch of the latest pride from the global smartphone brand.
Prior to the grand launch, Boyband PH also joined local Bacolod media at the Vivo V7 press conference on the same day. When asked what their favorite feature is of the Vivo V7, Russel said it is definitely the 24MP front camera, “As a group we love to take group photos and the phone’s shot are really the best,” Russel explained. “And also HIFI audio of the phone as we love listening to music it has the best audio ever.” Boyband PH is grateful to be chosen by the brand to endorse their products and is happy to be a part of the Vivo Family.
The Vivo V7 is the newest addition to the V series and is a powerful shooter with an all screen Display. Equipped with advanced technology including Vivo’s fingerprint 24MP front-facing camera and a 16MP rear-facing camera, this phone is known for its exceptional photography features, screen quality and the overall product design.
The V7 is the result of Vivo’s on-going effort in understanding the needs of today’s young people, as the company continues its growth trajectory and international expansion by providing stylish and dynamic products to more consumers to show off their individuality and capture memories that is worth remembering.
 The V7 reinforces Vivo’s leadership in selfies with its 24MP front-facing camera, which produces crystal-clear selfies. By keeping true-to-life color and contrast and a clear background at all times, V7 allows users to express themselves truly anytime, anywhere. Equipped with advanced technology, this phone is known for its exceptional photography features, screen quality and the overall product design.

The Lola's of Eat Bulaga namely Lola Tidora, Lola Nidora and Lola Tinidora is all set to give laughter and horror in the big screen. Last week a bloggers conference was held to give us a chance to get to know more about the upcoming movie of Jose Manalo, Wally Bayola and Paolo Ballesteros also known as JoWaPao. I was personally touched that the three Lola's came in fully made up and dressed up for their characters.


I actually first thought that Trip Ubusan is a comedy film, but during the blogcon they cleared out that this was more of the horror side. People will surely want to watch the movie because the Lola's have different characters and we all love our Lolas. But behind the all the laughter and fun of creating this film, keeping and creating their looks is time consuming. Wally's make up takes about 2hrs to finish because they have to make him look tired because he portrays Lola Nidora as someone who talks and acts slow. Jose as Lola Tinidora says his make up is just done in an hour because he doesn't like too much on and at the same time his skin is sensitive (and everyone in the room had a good laugh). And finally the most glamorous of them all, Lola Tidora portrayed by Paolo Ballesteros. Because he has to maintain the glam of his character, he does his own make-up for four hours. A good 7 hours combined just for the make upof this movie.

So are you excited to watch? Because I am! Trip Ubusan is showing on November 22 in cinemas nationwide.

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!

For complete photos of the cast, click Chubbychitchat Blogs
FYI: I felt that the “bubong” scenes were the best. (It was shot in our neighborhood lol!)

Intelligent actors, this is how Direk Joel Lamangan described Barbie Forteza and Ken Chan also known as the Ken-Bie loveteam from the movie “This Time I’ll Be Sweeter.” 

The loveteam came out as a surprise chemistry between the two coming from the “Meant To Be” teleserye. Admittedly both are really good friends that is why it wasn’t very hard for them to work together. No pressure and chill, that is how they describe their loveteam, they are just being themselves.

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.

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.
