NBA CELEBRATES 70TH EDITION OF CHRISTMAS DAY GAMES

Cleveland and Golden State to Meet on Christmas for Third Straight Year as Part of Five-Game Schedule

– Boston to Play First Christmas Home Game; ABC to Air Three Games for First Time –

NEW YORK, Dec. 19, 2017 The 70th edition of the NBA on Christmas Day will tip off in six days.  The league’s Dec. 25 schedule (see below), which features five games for the 10th straight season, will be seen in more than 200 countries and territories in more than 40 languages.

Showcasing a record three games on ABC and one each on ESPN and TNT, Christmas Day will include a Finals rematch between the Cleveland Cavaliers and the defending NBA champion Golden State Warriors as the teams meet on the holiday for the third consecutive year.

The Cleveland-Golden State game is one of next Monday’s three rematches from the NBA Playoffs 2017, along with the Boston Celtics playing host to the Washington Wizards and the Houston Rockets visiting the Oklahoma City Thunder.  Additionally, the New York Knicks and Los Angeles Lakers – the NBA’s two winningest franchises on Christmas Day – will play home games against the Philadelphia 76ers and Minnesota Timberwolves, respectively.  In all five games, the teams will be meeting for the first time this season. 

Here are some numbers highlighting the NBA on Christmas Day, which will mark the start of Week 11 of the 2017-18 season:     

395/16 Kobe Bryant is the NBA’s career Christmas Day leader in points (395) and games played (16).

301/76 Cleveland’s LeBron James and Dwyane Wade have each recorded 301 points and 76 assists on Christmas Day, the third-highest all-time totals for both categories.

60        Hall of Fame forward Bernard King scored a Christmas Day-record 60 points for New York against the New Jersey Nets in 1984.

52        New York will play on Christmas Day for an NBA-high 52nd time.

50        The three players who have scored at least 50 points in a game this season will be in action: Washington’s Bradley Beal, Houston’s James Harden and Cleveland’s LeBron James.

44        Golden State’s Kevin Durant owns the highest-scoring game on Christmas Day among active players, recording 44 points for Oklahoma City against the Denver Nuggets in 2010.

37 Thirty-seven players from outside the U.S. representing 23 countries and six continents are on the rosters of teams playing on Christmas Day.  The Celtics have the most international players with six.

33.2     Oklahoma City’s Carmelo Anthony has averaged 33.2 points in five Christmas Day games, the highest mark among all players with at least four appearances.

29        Houston’s Eric Gordon, the 2016-17 Kia NBA Sixth Man Award winner, will celebrate his 29th birthday on Christmas Day.

22        The Knicks and Lakers share the record for most wins on Christmas Day with 22 each.

16        Philadelphia will make its first appearance on Christmas Day in 16 years.

13        Boston, Cleveland and Houston have each had winning streaks of at least 13 games this season – the first time three teams have done this in their first 30 games of the same season.  The Rockets extended their current winning streak to 14 games with a 120-99 victory over the Utah Jazz on Dec. 18. 

10        Cleveland’s Dwyane Wade has won 10 games on Christmas Day, the most in NBA history.

8          ESPN’s Doris Burke will be a Christmas Day game analyst for the eighth time when she calls Wizards-Celtics on ABC.  Burke is the first woman to serve as a regular national NBA game analyst.

4          TNT’s four-person Inside the NBA team – Ernie Johnson, Charles Barkley, Kenny Smith and Shaquille O’Neal will call the Lakers-Timberwolves game from Staples Center, joined by reporter Kristen Ledlow.  This will be the first live game that all four Inside crew members have called together.

3          Cleveland and Golden State will become the first teams to face each other three consecutive years on Christmas Day since the Los Angeles Lakers and Miami Heat from 2004-06.

2          NBA TV will offer two full days of original programming on Dec. 24-25, including the premiere of Hoops Africa: Ubuntu Matters, a documentary spotlighting basketball’s impact on society and the development of the sport on the African continent (Dec. 24, 1:30 p.m. ET).

Robert Dexter Ding is a dutiful son. In December 2014, he started a small business, hopped on a motorcycle to deliver Cebu lechon porchetta to pork lovers in Metro Manila in order to help pay for the hospital bills of his father who had been confined for almost a year.

Bai’s Boneless Lechon is slowly becoming a Christmas staple.
Robert Dexter Ding is a dutiful son. In December 2014, he started a small business, hopped on a motorcycle to deliver Cebu lechon porchetta to pork lovers in Metro Manila in order to help pay for the hospital bills of his father who had been confined for almost a year.

Dexter coined the name Bai’s Lechon as a reference to the Cebuano term for friend or pare—“bai.”
Only three days after the business opened, however, his father passed away. Regrettably, the inspiration for Bai’s Lechon did not live long enough to see its success. (I am inclined to believe, though, that it may have been through the guiding light of Dexter’s father’s spirit that the business has grown with incredible success. Business booms when you have a silent partner in heaven.)
“I was inspired to start Bai’s because I missed our lechon in Cebu. Eating Cebu lechon was like bonding for me and my dad,” Dexter recalls. “We lived in the city center but our favorite was always going to Carcar. It was lechon heaven.”

So with just P50,000 as investment, one brick oven, a second-hand scooter and a few printed delivery boxes, Dexter started Bai’s Boneless Cebu Lechon.

Cebu lechon porchetta Instead of delivering a whole lechon, Bai’s delivers boxes of lechon porchetta with all the aromas and flavors of Cebu lechon, utilizing his favorite part—the belly.

He chose to deliver just porchetta because, by experience, he always felt shortchanged whenever he had to buy a whole pig just to enjoy the belly.

The business started with an offering of just three sizes: family, which could feed 4-5 persons; barkada, good for 10-15; and party, good for 20-25.

Dexter would sometimes personally deliver the lechon to customers. He even recalls one Christmas when he was on his way to a formal dinner and had to fulfill an order. He got on the motorcycle and delivered the lechon in a tuxedo.

Bai’s lechon stores

ADVERTISEMENT
In October 2015, business was good enough for another investment. The company bought its first industrial oven. The Christmas that same year, they churned out a ton’s worth, or around 1,000 kilos of packed boneless lechon.

Soon, from offering primarily in the south/Alabang area, they started also delivering to Quezon City, Cavite, Laguna, East Pasig up to Marikina for a flat delivery charge.

By December 2016, just two years from operating with just one little brick oven in Alabang and a secondhand motorcycle, Bai’s opened two stores: one in Pasig and one in Biñan, Laguna (now closed). Today, Bai’s has three fully functioning stores in Alabang, Pasig and Pampanga.

Carving stations
They now also offer carving stations, a big hit in corporate parties. (See details below on how to order.)
Bai has also been doing pop-ups recently. “We open pop-ups during the holidays to make the lechon accessible to our patrons who stay in areas where we usually deliver but can’t because of the Christmas season. This year, we have pop-ups in Tanauan, Batangas; Otis-Manila; Bacoor, Cavite; and in the Alex & Claude store in the F1 Hotel in BGC,” Dexter shares. By Christmas and New Year’s Eve, however, expect they are already sold out.

Besides the porchetta, Bai’s now also offers all-meat sisig and roast chicken infused with tamarind.
Affordable Best of all, Bai’s lechon is very affordable. The Boneless Lechon Cebu is only P720 for the family size, P1,800 for the barkada size and P2,850 for the party size.

I also like that you don’t need to buy a whole lechon or even a cochinillo to get your lechon fix.
Inspired What keeps Dexter inspired to expand the business, though, is the fulfillment it brings as well as the memory of his dad.

“It’s very fulfilling, doing something that can be bigger than yourself,” he reflects. “Some say it brings them back to their Cebu hometown. Others appreciate that we deliver as early as 5:00 a.m. It’s the smiles and the simple thank yous that mean a lot.”

Of his father, Dexter says, “I hope he is happy. I hope he is proud and loves what we do.”
Without a doubt, he is.

For orders, call 0917-5825333 (covers most areas in the South); for Pasig, call 0917-8341010 (covers Pasig, BGC, Ortigas, Marikina and Quezon City); for Pampanga, call 0925-7076483 (covers all towns in Pampanga). Visit pop-up stores in Batangas, BGC, Otis and Bacoor, Cavite (call 0917-5825333). For orders using credit card, go online at

www.baisbonelesslechon.com. Orders require a three-day notice.

Viral Sensation The Sacred Riana Crowned Winner of Asia’s Got Talent Season 2 on AXN

PHILIPPINES (December 14, 2017) Asia is spooked: After 10 riveting weeks and hundreds of acts from 15 countries, Asia has voted ‘possessed’ Indonesian illusionist The Sacred Riana as the winner of Asia’s Got Talent Season 2 on AXN.

The Sacred Riana, whose real name is Marie Antoinette Riana Graharani, has become the most anticipated act of the season. Her spooky persona and terrifying magic tricks during the judges’ auditions, semi-finals and grand final episodes collectively achieved over 70 million views on Facebook and YouTube, making her a global sensation.

The Sacred Riana faced serious competition in last week’s grand final show, and was up against the season’s most dynamic and popular acts including runner-up DM-X Comvalenos from the Philippines, Mongolian digital dance/artist Canion Shijirbat, Malaysia-based illusionist Sobhi Shaker, Indonesian harpist and singer Angela July, ADEM Dance Crew from Kyrgyzstan, ukulele child prodigy Feng E from Taiwan, beatboxer Neil Rey Gracia Llanes and Urban Crew both from the Philippines. Ultimately, it was The Sacred Riana who rallied the most votes to take home the grand prize of US$100,000, courtesy of presenting sponsor, Traveloka.

“The viewer response to Asia’s Got Talent Season 2 has been truly overwhelming on both pay-TV and social platforms and we are thrilled to produce such a well-loved series for AXN audiences across the region,” said Virginia Lim, Senior Vice President and Head of Content, Production and Marketing, Sony Pictures Television Networks, Asia. “I extend my warmest congratulations to The Sacred Riana and to all the other grand finalists who made it so far. Asia’s Got Talent is the world’s biggest talent show and we hope that the series inspires the next generation of Asia’s stars to pursue their dreams.”

The Sacred Riana, who is an illusionist of very few words and does not break character even off-stage, appeared to single out and petrify judge Anggun in each of her acts. In the grand final, The Sacred Riana made a star tattoo suddenly appear on the superstar’s hand, before disappearing into a small box and re-emerging seconds later behind a shocked Anggun.

The hit-rated season of Asia’s Got Talent culminated with powerhouse judges, David Foster, Anggun and Jay Park taking over the stage with individual performances. David delighted the audience on piano with his world-famous piece, “Love Theme from St. Elmo’s Fire”; Anggun dazzled with her new single “What We Remember” from her latest album ‘8’; and Jay Park performed the world premiere of his new single “Forget About Tomorrow” with Yultron, backed by eight Korean hip-hop dancers.

“Our esteemed judges, David, Anggun and Jay, have been integral to the Asia’s Got Talent experience this season. Their quick wit, immense style, humor and insightful advice helped secure Asia’s Got Talent as the number one series on pay TV every Thursday night,” Lim said.

Asia’s Got Talent is the 67th adaptation of the Guinness-World-Record-breaking hit “Got Talent” format, which was created by Simon Cowell’s Syco Entertainment and is co-produced by FremantleMedia. The “Got Talent” format is officially the most successful reality TV format in history and currently airs in 186 countries.

Asia’s Got Talent is supported by presenting sponsor Traveloka, the leading travel booking app for all flight and hotel needs; sponsoring partner Great Eastern Life, the market leader in the conventional life insurance business and the largest life insurer in Malaysia by asset size; GoDaddy, the world’s largest cloud platform dedicated to small, independent ventures and 100Plus, the number one isotonic drink.

In the Philippines, Asia’s Got Talent is brought to you by Cherifer, Tangkad Sagad, KFC Delivery and Vivo Smart Phone.

Marina Bay Sands, Asia’s leading business, leisure and entertainment destination, is the official venue partner of Asia’s Got Talent.

Unioil Petroleum Philippines Inc. (Unioil) has unveiled its first electric vehicle (EV) charging station on its newly-opened Unioil Solar Hybrid service station at Congressional Avenue Extension, Quezon City.

Present during the ribbon-cutting ceremony were Unioil Vice President Noel Soriano, Mitsubishi Motor Philippines Corporation (MMPC) Vice President for Business Planning and Public Relations Department Renato Lampano, and other guests.

"We commend Unioil for its initiative to showcase renewable energy in its first hybrid gasoline station. Like Unioil, Mitsubishi Motors Philippines Corporation is striving to reduce carbon footprint by developing technologies for improving fuel economy and electric-powered systems. The Mitsubishi Electric Vehicle (i-MiEV) and Outlander Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) are proof of this concept," Lampano said.

“We are very proud to open the first of many Unioil EV charging stations aimed at promoting the use of electric vehicles in the country. We invite everyone to visit our Unioil hybrid station to see and experience the future,” Soriano said.

This latest effort is part of Unioil’s “Doing Our Part” campaign which the company launched in November to encourage Filipinos to make a difference in society through small, everyday actions and responsible decisions they make, including the decision to choose a cleaner fuel.

Unioil believes that climate change and environmental degradation are real threats to a sustainable future and quality of life. This is why it continues to lead the way in introducing the cleanest range of petroleum products by offering a complete line of Euro5 performance fuels in September 2017, making it the first petroleum company to upgrade all its fuel products to Euro 5 standard.

To further reduce its carbon footprint, Unioil has started operating its first “hybrid” service station which is partially powered by solar energy. The Unioil station along Congressional Avenue, Quezon City is equipped with the SmartflowerTM, the global leader in intelligent solar energy solutions that features an automated sun tracking technology, making it up to 40% more efficient than conventional fixed-type solar panels. Each SmartflowerTM unit reduces carbon footprint by 4.7 metric tons annually which is equivalent to planting approximately 5,000 trees per year.

Ford Ranger visit Gawad Kalinga in Cavite last December 2017 with online media…

Last december 2017 ford philippines huling hirit gift giving at gawad kalinga in cavite was a successful event together with selected online media. These four Ford Ranger was driven by selected online media and lend for almost a week for review and social travel. More often I can say that it’s a comfort riding on and off the road.

One of the Ford Philippines event last december 2017 was to cheer up homeless kids or without parents that would take care of them, but this time Ford Philippines invited us to witness their simple heartfelt move in cheering up and bring smile to the kids.

Opening remarks with Ford Philippines AVP EJ Francisco, Ford Philippines Staff and Media thanking the kids for attending the simple gift giving event of ford philippines. 

Me and my team mate assigned to distribute gift under the age of 10 years old, of course it’s a coed that is why the organizer put a two colors of ribbons – blue for the boys and pink for the girls. Each ranger filled with gifts for different age category, though the sun is shining so bright that I’m having difficulties to open wide my eyes I still manage to do selfie with my team.  

Aerial shot, in which the organizer pati and her colleague put the gifts in place where we can distribute them neatly for the kids.

Finally these kids got their gifts, Have you ever feel how they feel for such a simple gift it means a lot to them. A gift that give meaning of joy and love, a simple gift that pour out their world of need.

Seeing them happy is not just a simple thing we all brought to them, Kahit sa sandaling oras sa panahon ng pagmamahal at pagbibigay ng mga simpleng laruan ay isang malaking bahagi na ng kanilang buhay. A simple way of giving something to these kids it brings joy, not only to them but also to the giver.

Ford Philippines gives you the passion of being the best of the best, with Ford Ranger that is Built For Tough on whatever terrain on and off the road, with or without flood you can still Go Further.

After the time of gift giving at gawad kalinga we still have time for selfie with happy face.

A very fulfilling experience with Ford Philippines and Ogilvy, thank you for inviting and lending me a Ford Ranger.

With that this is Engr. John Cueto – TechPhoto Blogger of TechUpdateAsia and LarawanAtKape signing out for the year 2017 and signing in to the year 2018 saying Merry Christmas and A Happy New Year.
