FUSION marries funk and class in one ‘eclectic’ trade show

Guests were treated to a classy yet modern lifestyle with frisky and colorful allure at the FUSION Lifestyle and Hello Dolly Trade Show slated last August 13 and 14, 2014, at the Manila Polo Club lobby.

The two-day event, organized by Canadian Manufacturing, put the spotlight on the union of the elegant with the modern; the sophisticated with the funky; the nude with the colorful; and the classic with the youthful. This eclectic mix was showcased in the exhibits that featured the company’s bed and bath lines and infants and kids apparel products.

“Lifestyle by Canadian has always committed itself to bringing the good life to our customers. This trade show highlights our commitment and more as we aim to give visitors an experience beyond the good life – that is, catering to their unique tastes and individual preferences,” says Ravi Daryanani, Managing Director.

Divided into six distinct show areas: A-List institutional area; Urban Living Premium and Basic area; Character Collection area; Pick n’ Go area; Modern Linens and Qualcom area; and Store Look area, the event was designed to attract and transport visitors to the wide variety of Canadian Manufacturing’s product lines.

Apart from the show areas, the event featured exciting activities for both young and young at heart.

“We intentionally mounted a ‘styling’ activity for those with creative spirit and eye for sophistication. Not to be left out are the ‘selfie’ kings and queens, who definitely enjoyed in the photo-op activity. The tech-savvy got their fill of the digital showcase we prepared especially for them,” explains Chand Daryanani, Sales and Marketing Manager of Canadian Manufacturing.

DIY (Do-It-Yourself) savants got their creative juices going at the #MyBedroomStyle activity area, where they were given the opportunity to customize bedrooms to their liking. It gave a preview of what customers at home could experience when they log on to the company’s website, where a new built-in application now allows them to choose the style and color of their room wall that is fitting of the bed sheet they choose. At the activity area, customers had their masterpieces printed to take home as souvenirs or post them to their Facebook walls.

At the #FUSIONFeed activity area, hashtag enthusiasts had the chance to win special prizes for the most eye-catching tweets that creatively incorporated #ChangeIsComing, #Fusion, #PickNGo, #UrbanLiving, #Lifestyle2014, or #HelloDolly2014 into their Twitter and Facebook posts.

The company for the modern lifestyle

Featuring pre-loved and soon-to-be-loved infants and kids apparel, baby beddings, baby gift sets, towels, and bed and bath product lines from top brands such as Hello Dolly, Little Wishes, Disney, Winnie the Pooh, Baby Einstein, Little Einsteins, among others, each area brought to the table what patrons of the products have come to love all these years, plus new product offerings that are sure to catch the eyes and capture the hearts of customers.

The trade show indeed reflects New Creation Manufacturing’s brand image as a company tailored to the Filipino consumer’s modern and eclectic lifestyle preferences. Established in 1956 as a manufacturer of infants and kids apparel locally under the brand name Hello Dolly, it soon expanded to market its products all over the globe.

In the ‘90s, it marked another milestone with the acquisition of licenses to market some of the world’s beloved brands such as Disney, Snoopy and Warner characters.

Today, New Creation Manufacturing, with its president Hiro Asandas at the helm, takes pride in being the exclusive licensee of the top apparel and beddings brands and carries sought-after character portfolio.

Education is the most important inheritance a parent can give to their children, with proper guidance and right up bringing, a child can never go wrong with his or her decisions.

Paseo Verde 03

This holds true in the case of these two students. At a very young age they persuaded their parents to buy them a condominium unit at Paseo Verde in Las Piñas City.

A mid rise condominium located South of Metro Manila interest the two students, Doreen Joy Rosell and Maria Jessica Bello both students from FEU, because of its unique features that Paseo Verde offers to its unit owners. The bike facilities and electronic bike charging is just one feature that the condominium offers, it also has park and play ground of its own located in its premises. Plus the certified accreditation by the Building for Ecologically Responsive Design Excellence (BERDE) and a member of the Philippine Green Building Council for its steps toward promoting a sustainable community.

Presently, the awareness in promoting and living in an eco friendly place is the current fad among young people today. They want to give their contribution in protecting the environment and helping it in their own way.

One of the student said that “It is nice to live in a place where you can see trees and green grasses outside your window and gives you the feeling that you’re away from the city.”

The other lass said “South is the place that are being heavily developed, soon it will or might become the new business hub, since most of the place in Metro Manila is already full. The opportunity could be right here. And this is not a loss it could also be a gain for me, because I see this as my first investment.”

In the end, they are positively sure that after they graduated and find the right job, they know that it’s their turn to pay the rest of the monthly payment.

Think your denim utters nary a word about you? We beg to differ.

Take bell bottom jeans, for example. These pants, with their iconic bell-shaped hems, were introduced innocently enough—sailors in the U.S. Navy first wore them in the 19th century. By the late 1960s, however, these exaggerated flares had been adapted by fashion-forward teenagers, not only as adolescent garb, but also to show a generation’s counterculture sensibilities. Even today bell bottoms speak so symbolically that they’ve become a key emblem of the 1970s, as much as a tie-dye headband.

Sporting bell bottoms in modern times isn’t out of date, but simply retro-chic, depending on your overall sense of style. Luckily, you’ve got plenty of other denim options—from skinny jeans to colored jeans—that speak volumes, too.

So what are the new fashion rules for wearing denim? Just one: DENIM RULES!

Jeans, in all their body-contouring comfort, can be worn everywhere—from the office to after-work parties. Whether you want to live in denim at work or play, the key is adapting jean-altering trends to suit your own style.

What do your jeans say about you? From revealing classical leanings to trend-spotting clues, we’ll tell you how your jeans are spilling the beans. But first, we’ll look at the different types of jeans out there.


Strutting your stuff in skinny jeans means one thing: You enjoy showing off your body. Skinny jeans say, “I want to attract attention,” and they do. Caution: Skinny jeans are for slender and fit bodies only. Wear a long top either tucked in or worn on the outside to avoid a “whale’s tail” fashion disaster (a.k.a your underwear showing)


Boot-cut jeans are just a step above “mom jeans”. In other words, they make for a flattering look, but they’re not exactly trendsetting. Boot-cuts say you’re not willing to push the envelope, but you’re also not willing to be completely left behind. How to make them cool? Wear them with a more modern shoe and funky accessories to liven up the look.


As in, jean-leggings. These super-slim pants are often manifestations of personality traits like being ultra-trendy and having a youthful flair. But, keep in mind that they are best worn by slim guys and gals. Jeggings are very useful since they have a “tights” effect. They are great with voluminous, long and multi-layered tops.


The bell-bottom wearing woman is one who appreciates the “vintage” look. But they work mostly for people who have some height to their frames. Word to the wise: Bell-bottoms paired with a fitted top will draw attention to the waistline.


Why live on just blue alone? A colored jean suggests whimsy and fun with a bit of “I’m not afraid to experiment” mixed in. Just avoid going monochrome—yellow over yellow, for instance, is a fashion disaster waiting to happen. How to wear it: Since the colored denim will take center stage, pair it on top with neutrals and clean lines.

Finding that elusive, yet perfect jean for your body type and personality can take a lot of time. Luckily, SM Supermalls will be holding a month-long jeans festival this July. Celebrating fashion that never goes out of style, SM will showcase a wide variety of events for denim lovers everywhere.

Check out THE DENIM BAR and get stylish ideas to rock your denims. The goal is to create the perfect outfit for you from their wide selection of jeans as well as tops, shoes and accessories.

See the latest styles and the hottest models at THE DENIM RUNWAY, a fashion show dedicated to all this denim.

Find denim on sale in every style at THE DENIM HUB, a bustling bazaar featuring all your favorite jean brands.

And finally, with THE DENIM LOOK BOOK, follow the country’s most popular fashion bloggers on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter to see how they style their denims.

Get the style inspirations and trend updates. Join the hippest fashion events. Be part of THE DENIM MOVEMENT this July at SM Supermalls.

“Initiating a future-oriented, mixed-use metropolis, NUVALI nurtures the promise of a distinguished legacy”

Steeped in rich history, NUVALI was once part of the Friar Lands in the 1800s, subsequently acquired by an enterprising group of Americans who developed the property as a sugar plantation at the turn of the century. Lawyer and statesman Jose Yulo acquired the property in 1948, ushering the sugar estate into agro-industrial peace and prosperity. In the mid-70s, the Yulo’s introduced a major planning initiative re-allocating the uses of the land. Industrial, residential and recreational developments were established, beginning a new chapter in responsible stewardship of the property.

Today, guided by a new vision, NUVALI unlocks the potential for both future and existing communities. Situated in the burgeoning Southern Luzon corridor, NUVALI’s vast topography is surrounded by local flourishing communities, shops, schools, sports, centers, parks and hospitals. These and the rich cultural heritage of the region makes NUVALI a part of an exciting thriving district. Initiating a future-oriented, mixed-use metropolis, NUVALI nurtures the promise of a distinguishing legacy, assuring that the land’s history of productivity and success continues for generations to come.

With over 50 years of experience in real estate, Ayala Land, Inc. Has earned a reputation as the country’s leading real estate developer. The company aspires to build top-class products and services, move with scale, and maintain strict financial discipline throughout the company, recognizing that the satisfaction of its customers, patrons, shareholders, and other stakeholders remains the ultimate measure of its success.

NUVALI is a collaboration between Ayala Land, Inc. And the Yulo Family , a merging of efforts to transform the Yulo’s 1,860 hectare property in Canlubang, Laguna into a wholly sustainable community development. The land is divided into three parcels – Ceci, Aurora, and Vesta – and is within one of the most rapidly urbanizing regions in the country. Ayala Land and the Yulo’s recognize the rich potential of this land and advocated its use of establishing a strong future.

BLESSED LIFE – IEMELIF NEW FRONTIER MISSION 2014 Introduction The story of the spread of IEMELIF congregations in various places is replete with interesting experiences of the men and women who gave themselves – their time and resources – to the service of the Church that the Kingdom of God might be preached in the Philippines.

MANILA AREA – The IEMELIF congregations in Manila were established almost instantaneously. They represented a large part of the Methodist members who joined their secessionist pastors in the new Church. (Methodist Episcopal Church, Board of Foreign Missions, Annual Report, 1909, p.349.) TONDO, MANILA – The very first IEMELIF congregation was established in Tondo. It consisted of about 600 seceders from the ST. PAUL’S METHODIST CHURCH.

They were led by the KAPISANANG KATOTOHANAN members, who spared no effort and resources in organizing the congreagation, with Pastor NICOLAS ZAMORA as their pastor. In the beginning they met as a “HOUSE CHURCH” in the home of the spouses ARSENIO BARTOLOME and NICOLASA FELICIANO at No.17 Moriones Street, Tondo.

Later services were held in various “MOVIE HOUSES” in Tondo (TEATRO RIZAL on Ylaya Street, CINE KATUBUSAN on Moriones Street, and CINE GLORIA on Sande Street) Until 1929 (20 years after) when the TEMPLO SENTRAL (Cathedral) was built on Sande Street (now Nicolas Zamora Street) The Tondo congreagation never had a permanent meeting place of its own since their priority was to use their modest financial resources on evangelization and the propagation of the IEMELIF CHURCH.

Nevertheless, a large portion of the construction fund for the CENTRAL TEMPLE, built later, came from the generous contributions of the members of the Tondo congregation.

Besides, the congregation of Tondo had always been and continues to be under the direct pastorate of the General Superintendent. (Ruben F. Trinidad, A Monument to Religious Nationalism, pp. 144-45) Change is hard, but to not change will make the future even harder. It’s time to step up to the challenge to be witnesses. It’s time, as the old hymn says, to “be done with lesser things.” It’s time for the church to rise up.

THE CATHEDRAL OF THE NEW MILLENIUM DOUGLAS BRIGGS, the director of the Los Angeles Film Studies Center, has some very interesting opinions about the place and importance of movies in our culture.


It was the place where people gathered and shared their beliefs and emotions with each other. It was a place that united individual families and communities, and the nation shared views and values. But in the last two decades, the Cineplex has usurped the role of the church.


More seats and Bigger Place to worship… 

Now people gathered and socialized there. More significantly, the values that are adopted by our culture are those proclaimed on the screen. While society used to find its principle in the Bible, now it looks to the entertainment industry for truth.

Whether it is via films, television, cable, Internet, magazines, or music, the entertainment industry provides the content that Americans absorb as their source of guidance. MESSIAH of the Marketplace I simply argue that the cross be raised again at the center of the MARKETPLACE as well as on the steeple of the church…. That Jesus was not crucified in a cathedral between two candles, but on A CROSS BETWEEN TWO THIEVES; on THE TOWN’s GARBAGE HEAP; at a CROSSROAD SO COSMOPOLITAN that they had to write his title in Hebrew and Latin and in Greek; at the kind of place where CYNICS talk smut, and THIEVES curse, and SOLDIERS gamble.

Because that is where he died. And that is what he died about … that is where churchmen SHOULD BE and what churchmen SHOULD BE ABOUT. — George McLeod APOSTOLIC DIRECTION TEACHES: Even though I am free of the demands and expectations of everyone, I have VOLUNTARILY BECOME A SERVANT TO ANY AND ALL in order to reach a wide range of people: religious, nonreligious, meticulous moralists, loose-living immoralists, the defeated, the demoralized- whoever.

I didn’t take on their way of life. I kept my bearings in Christ- but I ENTERED THEIR WORLD and tried to EXPERIENCE THINGS FROM THEIR POINT OF VIEW. I’ve BECOME JUST ABOUT EVERY SORT OF SERVANT THERE IS in my attempts to lead those I meet into a GOD-SAVED LIFE. I did this because of the Message, I didn’t just want to talk about it; I wanted to be in on it! 1 Corinthians 9:19-23 (Message Version)
