World Hemophilia Day_Poster

Philippine hemophilia community seeks public support

In celebration of the World Hemophilia Day on April 17, the Hemophilia Association of the Philippines for Love & Service (HAPLOS) will spearhead a national gathering of different Hemophilia groups and support organizations at the Glorietta Mall in Makati City on April 11 to 12.

Dubbed “Count Me In,” the two-day activity seeks to raise awareness and understanding about hemophilia and related bleeding disorders. The event expects to gather around 300 persons with these conditions, along with their families and friends.

Hemophilia, von Willebrand disease, inherited platelet disorders, and other factor deficiencies are lifelong bleeding disorders that prevent blood from clotting properly.

People with bleeding disorders do not have enough of a particular clotting factor, a protein in blood that controls bleeding. The severity of a person’s bleeding disorder usually depends on the amount of clotting factor that is missing or not functioning. People with hemophilia can experience uncontrolled bleeding that can result from a seemingly minor injury. Bleeding into joints and muscles causes severe pain and disability while bleeding into major organs, such as the brain, can cause death.

According to the World Hemophilia Federation, about 10,000 Filipinos have hemophilia.

On the other hand, there are about 1-million Filipinos possibly affeced with von Willebrand Disease and other bleeding disorders. However, only around 1,200 have been identified.

Despite being considered as a serious and lifelong condition, awareness for hemophilia, von Willebrand Disease and inherited bleeding disorders has not gained momentum in most countries including the Philippines.

As a result, significant disparities in treatment still exist, with about 75 percent receiving very inadequate treatment or no treatment at all.

 

Through the event in Glorietta Mall, HAPLOS hopes to educate more people with the help of PWH themselves, and create a call to action in order to close the gap in care and treatment.   

“Unlike other conditions, Hemophilia, von Willebrand Disease and other bleeding disorders receive little public awareness and attention. The World Hemophilia Day, celebrated by countries all over the globe, is an opportunity for the bleeding disorder community to come together, speak out, and focus on the need to improve and maintain treatment, as well as help those with the condition to live as normally as possible,” said HAPLOS President Ric Felipe.

“Count Me In” lead campaigner Andrea Echavez said the event serves as a call to action to those with hemophilia, von Willebrand Disease and other bleeding disorders to be more active and be included in the National Hemophilia Registry. 

“We want to encourage people with Hemophilia, von Willebrand Disease and other bleeding disorders that even though our condition is life-long, we can be productive members of the society,” Echavez, who has von Willebrand Disease, said.

A former Inquirer reporter and now a communication consultation of an international organization, she said many patients feel overwhelmed with their condition especially when they experience bleeds.

“Our quality of life is definitely different from those without disorders. And we are not dismissing what our fellow patients feel. Many times bleeds can be overwhelming. But it should not stop us from striving to lead normal lives,” Echavez said.

Count Me In campaign also calls for volunteers from outside the Hemophilia community, public support for the Hemophilia community, and for government to look into the plight of persons with hemophilia.

The two-day event will feature psycho-social activities for children and youth by Kythe Foundation, fundraising activities such as sale of art work and products by persons with Hemophilia and their families, testimonials of persons with Hemophilia, medical lectures on hemophilia and other bleeding disorders, video loops in between programs, as well as entertainment by children and adults with hemophilia and other bleeding disorders.

There will also be a blood donation campaign with the assistance of the Philippine Red Cross.

The activity is co-organized by HAPLOS and the Philippine Children’s Medical Center (PCMC). It is supported by Glorietta Mall, BusinessMirror Group of Publications, Novo Nordisk Hemophilia Foundation, Philippine Red Cross and Kythe Foundation.

Michelin tires chosen

Posted: 03/16/2015 in LifeStyle, Motor

Michelin Cayman GT4 Closeup  

Michelin tires chosen for Porsche Cayman GT4 launch

For the dynamic launch of its new Cayman GT4, Porsche AG has chosen to equip all of the cars with MICHELIN Pilot Sport Cup 2 ultra-high-performance tires: 245/35 ZR20 (91Y) TL N0 front and 295/30 ZR20 (101Y) XL TL N0 rear.

The MICHELIN Pilot Sport Cup 2 tyre is the latest generation of road-legal track tires designed for ultra-high performance cars. The performance levels that this tyre offers are clearly demonstrated by the fact that it is the OE fitment on recent Porsche models including the 918 Spyder and GT3.

Michelin Cayman GT4

Further evidence of the performance of this tyre is highlighted by the Nurburgring lap record set last year by the 918 Spyder which was fitted with exactly the same model of tires, albeit in a different size, that can be bought from any Official Porsche Centre.

Compared to its predecessor, the Pilot Sport Cup+, the Pilot Sport Cup 2 lasts up to 50 per cent longer on track and also offers faster lap times* due to technology developed in motorsport, at races such as the Le Mans 24 hours. Plus, these improvements in performance are achieved with no compromises in other areas, and are an example of Michelin’s Total Performance strategy.

The MICHELIN Pilot Sport Cup 2 combines Bi-Compound technology, which involves the use of different rubber compounds on the inner and outer sections of the tread with Track Variable Contact Patch 3.0, which is an innovation that optimises pressure in the tyre’s contact patch so the same amount of rubber is always in contact with the road or track, whether driving in a straight line or cornering.

To ensure the Cayman GT4 is prepared for difficult winter driving conditions, Michelin is the sole supplier of the winter tyre option for the car:

235/35R20 92V XLTL Pilot Alpin 4 N0

275/30R20 97V XLTL Pilot Alpin 4 N0

*Internal Michelin tests

###

Michelin, the leading tyre company, is dedicated to sustainably improving the mobility of goods and people by manufacturing and marketing tires for every type of vehicle, including aircraft, cars, bicycles/motorcycles, earthmovers, farm equipment and trucks. It also offers electronic mobility support services on ViaMichelin.com and publishes travel guides, hotel and restaurant guides, maps and road atlases. Headquartered in Clermont-Ferrand, France, Michelin is present in more than 170 countries, has 111,200 employees and operates 67 production plants in 17 different countries. The Group has a Technology Center in charge of research and development with operations in Europe, North America and Asia. (www.michelin.com)

SVR soap

 

Beauty in A Bar: The SVR Soap Bar

Even when Sofia V. Relosa was still studying at La Salle College in Antipolo, she kept on dreaming of having her own business. Her boyfriend then and husband now, Chino Relosa, enjoyed buying and selling stuff so they could afford to go out on dates. She finished her Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education but would continue, together with her boyfriend, to sell various items in bazaars. She was determined to start her own business whilestill working as Training and Recruitment Manager for Robinsons Communities for 2 years.

SVR Infinity

Sofia admits that she’s quite lazy when it comes to following beauty regimens. “ I don’t want to use a lot of stuff on my skin which was a huge influence in the process of creating our soap,” says Sofia. This was going to betheall-in-one soapto have beautiful skin.

Sofia started the business as a sideline and sold glutathione injections and otherwhitening products on Facebook. She will eventually leave her 9-to-6 job after 2 years of part-timing and pursue a full-time job as an entrepreneur. Her glutathione soap started when she gave it out to clients who availedof her glutathione injection packages. It was the time when there would be an influx of competitors for whitening products. “The first batch of the soap was not meant for selling. It was merely a come-on for our glutathione injections. After six months of giving it away for free, our clients finally convinced us to sell it separately,” shares Sofia. This eureka moment created the birth of the SVR Infinity Soap.

After much consideration and with the intention of making their clients happy, she launched Sofia’s Glutathione Soap with Kojic and Collagen and sold it at one hundred pesos per bar. “ The main ingredients of our fabulous soap are Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Glutathione, Collagen and Kojic Acid,” Sofia adds. SVR worked hard for their FDA approval. When they got it, it added the assurance of an increased quality in her glutathione soap with better skin lightening benefits.

SVR soap angle

Glutathione is a natural anti-oxidant that eradicates toxins or free radicals in the body and inhibits the melanin formation and eliminates melasma, hyperpigmentation, uneven skin tone, freckles, and dark spots which results to a natural skin lightening.Collagen is anatural protein that binds skin tissues to avoid fine lines or wrinkles. Kojic Acid is another form of skin lightening element and is a natural anti-bacterial and anti-fungus that is found to cure melasma, dark spots, and acne.Vitamins E and Cpromote natural skin repair. Both neutralize free radicals and aids in the development of your body’s natural glutathione.

As more people found out about the soap, there was a lot of positive feedback from customers. Sofia would take screen shots and post these on their Facebook page. “ It was a way for us to thank our clients for sharing their experience. Andfortunately with those posts, we would generate more orders. It became an effective marketing strategy on all our social media sites and networks,” relates Sofia.Today, SVR Infinity has more than 400 resellers and 50 distributors with Zalora.com and Dapat Generics Pharmacy as the latest addition to their growing family.

“Our lovely clients, resellers and distributorsalways give us great feedback about their experience in using or selling our soap. Their words of appreciation and love are something we look forward to everyday. It’s the very reason why we work harder and stay happy,”Sofia adds.

For all those who want extra income—mompreneurs, online sellers, students, and whoever—you can easily join the SVR Infinity family of soap bar sellers with a minimal investment of PhP 2,150.

Le Monet hotel

Posted: 03/12/2015 in Hotel, LifeStyle

ArtStream Hospitality Management Group, Inc. (AHMGI) is a management group with first class hotels and resorts in sought-after destinations around the Philippines. The Group now operates, or has under development, 4 hotels representing over 300 rooms in 3 major cities and 2 destination towns.

AHMGI’s aim is to be recognized widely as the best luxury and art hotel group in the country, providing 21st century luxury with euro and national artistic charm in each of its hotels. This is achieved by investing in the Group’s exceptional facilities and its people, while maximizing profitability and long-term shareholder value. The strategy of the Group is to open the hotels currently under development in Palawan and Boracay, while continuing to seek further selective opportunities for expansion around the Philippines.

AHMGI’s properties consist of destination hotels and resorts, city hotels, and value hotels. Among the destination hotels and resorts are Le Monet Hotel in Baguio, Hotel Luna in Vigan, and Vitalis Resort and Spa in Santiago, Ilocos Sur.

These luxury hotels and resort exhibits their own unique personality and style, blending local culture and tradition for a truly remarkable soul finding guest experience. AHMGI’s city hotels – one of which is Hotel Rembrandt – exude understated elegance in prime city locations that reflects style and comfort, efficiency and sincerity – an affordable luxury for travelers mixing business with pleasure.

Staylite Hotels Candon, one of the value hotels under AHMGI has an inviting environment at a reasonable price, delivering consistent comfort, warm and casual service – making guests experience home away from home.

AHMGI aims to make each of its hotels the number one choice of accommodation in all three categories. With each property exuding its own personal style and quality service, there is no doubt that AHMGI will succeed in achieving this goal. Guided by the company’s principles, AHMGI’s corporate culture embodies its core values – ARTSTREAM – Adaptable, Resourceful, Trustworthy, Socially Responsible, Team-Oriented, Resilient, Excellence Driven, Aggressive, Market and Customer-Oriented.

Employees embrace this culture through applying the guiding principle of being gracious hosts in all hotels and resorts under the marketing group. Surely, AHMGI’s properties are the epitome of “Gracious Hosting”.

History AHMGI began with the opening of its flagship property, Le Monet, in Baguio 2012, which soon built up an enviable reputation for luxurious service and artistic themed functions. Since Le Monet Hotel was already a legendary property and acknowledged as one of Baguio’s great hotels, Stern Real Estate Development Corp. (SREDC), the property developer, decided to appoint AHMGI as Hotel Rembrandt’s management, and continue its development and reinvent its strong image of spectacular hospitality.

SREDC is incorporated in Manila which holds various businesses that expands from real estate, hospitality to commerce. In 2013, Stern Real Estate Development Corp. (SREDC) extended their hotel properties through the acquisition of a 100% percent interest in a heritage Vigan property which is now Hotel Luna. SREDC rationalized its corporate structure by combining two prestigious properties under a common management group, ArtStream Hospitality Management Group, Inc. (AHMGI). The ArtStream Hospitality Management Group, Inc. decided to expand their hotel management expertise in Vigan City where they can combine heritage, hospitality and art as a perfect trifecta and floated the conversion of the Dona Carmen Florentino House into a hotel structure.

AHMGI’s express aim was, and still is, to concentrate on the development and operation of first class city and destination hotels nationwide. Le Monet Hotel, Camp John Hay, Baguio City Dubbed as the “Summer Capital of the Philippines”, Baguio City is home to Le Monet Hotel. Refreshing scents of pines and sweeping views, Le Monet Hotel is a place where one can fulfill the longing for rejuvenation.

With Le Monet Hotel’s 70 well-appointed rooms and suites providing the utmost convenience and relaxation, this is the ultimate rejuvenating retreat. The hotel has been named after the great French impressionist painter Claude Monet, and to experience staying in any of the hotel’s suites is truly an example of “life imitating art” – with each having a veranda that would provide beautiful sights of the forest and the park. Conveniently situated at the renowned Camp John Hay, Le Monet Hotel is strategically located near popular tourist spots.

With all the amenities and facilities that Le Monet Hotel has to offer, guests will have a taste of the elegance and an experience that is unique to all of ArtStream Hospitality Management Group, Inc. (AHMGI) hotels nationwide. Le Monet Hotel combines its beautiful landscapes, sophisticated interiors and exquisite service with the summer capital’s nature attractions. Nature is within the radius with trips to the butterfly sanctuary, eco-trail, horse-back riding trails and picnic areas. Guests will experience the cozy atmosphere with family and friends while enjoying the outdoor activities Baguio City has to offer. Just like all AHMGI’s hotels and resorts, the Le Monet experience is highly personalized to every guest.

Be enthralled with the cascading chandeliers in the hotel lobby, see the breathtaking sight of greenery in the private balcony of the room, and the epitome of gracious hosting at Le Monet Hotel.

With a breath of fresh air, Le Monet Hotel is the prime definition of nature’s retreat. About Claude Monet Claude Monet as everyone knows, was primarily a landscape painter. But early in his career, he painted portraits, still life and interiors which showed amazing art style in these type of images. He simply preferred landscapes, and bodies of water in particular, first the seacoast, then the Seine River, and finally the pond in his garden at Giverny.

Monet, Renoir, and by this time Pissaro, Morisot, Sisley, Bazille, Cezanne and other artists are joining together in their new vision of painting. Monet’s landscapes, however, although freshly and boldly painted, had not been far from the officially accepted rules of painting.
