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.

The many gardens, plazas, museums, halls and chambers of the walled city will be transformed into artist residency studios, galleries, performance venues, lecture halls, pop up shops and cafes. The theme OPENCITY refers to Intramuros as the genesis of Manila’s culture; an homage to the walled city’s beginnings as a port for the Galleon Trade, a time when our capital opened itself up to the world and welcomed new ideas, products, and people. OPENCITY is also a tribute to Manila’s role in World War II, a vulnerable moment in December 1941 when Manila was cleared of all military presence and civilian run; a moment of freedom between two colonized periods of our history.

Recent studies demonstrate that MFGM plays an important role in supporting cognitive development, immunity and gut health. Moreover, a clinical study1 suggests that MFGM supplementation in children’s milk can positively impact behavioral regulation—

EQ development, in parent speak—in young children.

“Indeed, this is our biggest breakthrough since we first introduced DHA into our products in the early 2000s. With MFGM, we are bringing pediatric nutrition to a whole new level,” said Chris Ritchie, General Manager of Mead Johnson Nutrition, Philippines.

“This allows us to help parents prepare their children, particularly in the aspect of IQ and EQ development, for the demands that the future may bring.”

With this innovation, Enfagrow A+ Four is now the first and only children’s milk that contains the breakthrough ingredient MFGM Pro. Parents can now rely even more on Enfagrow A+ Four as their partner in developing their children’s IQ and EQ, for the challenges that the future holds.

Why Yoshinoya? 

Because is made for you. Quality of rice that fits for your chop sticks and slice beef that suit for your all day meal for rice toppings. 

 

ABOUT US,

Yoshinoya was born in 1899 under the ingenuity of its founder, a Japanese, named Eikichi Matsuda. Our story begins at Nihonbashi, a humble fish market in Chuo-ku, Tokyqo, on the outskirts of Edo Castle where Mr. Matsuda created a delicious recipe of beef and rice known as Gyudon (beef bowl). Named for his birthplace of Yoshino-Cho, Osaka, Mr. Matsuda’s restaurant featured delicious, affordable and fast meals. It was an entirely new concept in Japanese culture, and both the hard-working fisherman and market visitors embraced it. Yoshinoya was an instant hit. In 1923, Japan was hit by the Great Kanto Earthquake and Yoshinoya had to move to Tsukiji with the rest of the fish market and throngs of hungry patrons continued to enjoy Yoshinoya’s original gyūdon, or Beef Bowl.

In 1946, Mizuho Matsuda, son of Eikichi Matsuda, turned the business into a 24-hour restaurant and rapidly gained wide spread popularity in Japan. In 1958, it became a corporate company operating on a chain store system.Yoshinoya boasts of more than 100 years of tradition. Yoshinoya has grown to be one of the most important brands in Japan and boasts of more than 1,000 outlets, making it one of the biggest fast-food chains in Japan. To date, there are more than 1200 outlets around the world, namely Japan, USA, Hong Kong, China, Singapore, Malaysia, Taiwan, Indonesia, Thailand and the Philippines. Century Pacific Group under its retail arm, Yoshinoya Century Pacific, Inc., entered into Franchise Agreement with Yoshinoya International Co., Ltd in 2001 and started its first store operation in December 2001. Currently, there are five (6 ) stores in Metro Manila: SM MEGAMALL, SM NORTH EDSA, SM MALL OF ASIA, SM MANILA, and GLORIETTA. To further strengthen its presence in the Quick Service Arena, Yoshinoya Century Pacific, Inc. forged partnership with Ihanat Foods Corporation led by its President/ General Manager, Mr. Timothy James G. Yang.

Yoshinoya is home to delicious modern Japanese comfort food, from fresh salads, delectable seafood, noodles and great selections of entrées on Japanese rice bowls. Since 2001, the Company with the vision to be the most preferred Japanese restaurant in the country has offered high quality food at affordable prices with exceptional friendly service to its patrons. From our vast array of delicious entree selections, our fresh salad ingredients to our sumptuous desserts, only the highest quality products are presented to our customers. Over the years Yoshinoya’s menu changed to reflect today’s consumer except for the Beef Bowl (Gyudon) which is Yoshinoya’s specialty. It is the same product profile where Yoshinoya operates in other parts of the world. The core product is prepared using premium beef with the special beef stock over steaming bowl of white rice.

June 30, 2017 – The UP Sunken Garden was filled up with nature lovers, music enthusiasts ,students, government and private sector representatives and concerned artists with one goal ! That is to unite and fire up this year’s celebration of the Philippine Environment Month.

The day started with various exhibits around the stage area . A wide variety of food stalls were likewise available to serve the crowd. At noontime heavy rains started to pour and threatened the event .But at exactly 3 pm, the heavens opened with the blue skies hovering over the hundreds of participants who were joining the symbolical human “leaf" formation to manifet this year’s global theme “Connecting People with Nature”. It was going to be a good day after all.

Dubbed “A FAIR WITH NATURE”, the event is presented by the Environmental Management Bureau of DENR, Office of QC Vice Mayor Joy Belmonte, the University of the Philippines and is organized by Earthday Jam Foundation,Inc. This is their first collaboration .

“I am truly excited for our Foundation to be part of this unique undertaking. We are one in this relentless campaign that aims not only to educate people about the state of health of planet earth, but get everyone to do their fair share in the global fight to save this planet for our children’s future, the next generation” Lou Bonnevie, President of Earthday Jam Foundation answered when asked why she was involved with the event.

At 5 pm, program started with the actual human formation and inspiring messages from UP officials Chancellor Michael Tan and Vice Chancellor Nestor Castro with DENR Assistant Secretary Mitch Cuna and EMB-DENR and Chief of Environmental Education and Information Division Ellen Basug. The EMB Infographics awards followed suit with winners from all over the Philippines. After which celebrity bands and singers performed for a rolling night of live music, campaigning for the preservation of Mother Earth and its resources.

Opening performances came from UP’s homegrown roster of artists :UP StreetDance Club, UP Dance Company and UP Integrated PEP Squad. Thereafter , Bayang Barrios segued with her brand of world music using indigenous instruments such as agong and kubing integrated in her band. She capped her set with singing the environmental anthem ”Kapaligiran” with Lou Bonnevie . Lou Bonnevie proved her mettle as a veteran pop-rock icon spelling classic rocks tunes like “Come Together’ and “What A Wonderful World” and creatively twisting it to make it her own. She finished her set with a rousing original self penned song entitled “Ano Ang Nangyayari?” that got the young crowd thinking.

Alternative bands Autotelic, Mayonnaise and Chicosci got the audience to their feet, unmindful of the muddy grounds. Meanwhile, Ebe Dancel, a UP alumni, serenaded the crowd with his popular compositions. One of the highlights of the program was when hosts Midi Gentica, Pam Nieva and Roxy Montealegre introduced the much awaited VIDEO of the actual human leaf formation shown at the huge video walls .
