Mark Sangiao, Head Coach of Team Lakay, stated: “We are happy to celebrate this feat with our friends in the media and our beloved followers from Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao.

SUMAN NG CLARIN MADRID FUSION 2017

SUMAN NG CLARIN, FEATURED FOOD ITEM AT MADRID FUSION 2017

April 6-8, 2017 was a busy day for all foodies and food entrepreneur as Madrid Fusion 2017 took place at the SMX Convention Center in Pasay City.  The whole place was like a hive, buzzing with activities and people.

Part of the Region 10 contingent was the product from Clarin, Misamis Occidental – the various sticky rice cakes or suman ng Clarin.  Nearly all 17 flavors were displayed for tasting and sold in the 3-day event.  ASEC Fredrick Alegre, along with some visitors, was wowed with the number of flavors that Clarin was able to showcase during Madrid Fusion, knowing that this is the first time that the said municipality has joined in this kind of event.  The flavors of Clarin’s suman were as follow:

Mango – sticky rice with ripe mango slices, cooked in coconut milk and sugar.

Pinya – sticky rice with ripe pineapple slices, cooked in coconut milk and sugar.

Durian – sticky rice with durian slivers, cooked in coconut milk and sugar.  The durian’s strong scent is not present, making this a delightful way of enjoying the fruit.

Tsokalate – sticky rice with tablea made into a spread, cooked with coconut milk and sugar; making this rich in local flavors.

Tsokolate with Mani – similar to tsokolate with added with peanut flavor coming from processed peanut spread.  Also cooked in coconut milk and sugar.

Moron – a classic suman in the Visayan region. 

Balintawak – created in honor of a place where it was made, this sticky rice goodness is with coconut meat made sweet by cooked coconut milk/oil (latik).

Classic – this is your standard sticky rice, wrapped in leaves and cooked using coconut milk and sugar.

Carrot – with shredded carrots made into a slightly sweet paste, this is mixed into the sticky rice and then wrapped in leaves before being cooked in coconut milk and sugar.

Ube – another root crop common in the area, the purple yam is made into a semi-sweet paste that is mixed with the sticky rice before being wrapped in leaves.  Cooked with coconut milk and sugar.

Keso/Queso – slices of cheese are added into the sticky rice mix and then cooked with coconut milk and sugar.  The cheese melts into the sticky rice making it more creamier in each bite.

Choco Moron – the classic suman of the Visayas region with chocolate jame added into it.  Cooked in coconut milk and sugar mixture.

Buko –  sticky rice with strings of young coconut meat added into the mixture.  It is also cooked with coconut milk and sugar, making it slightly sweet and delicate.

Peanut – this is your locally processed peanuts, finely grounded and made into a near paste in texture then added into the sticky rice mixture before being wrapped in fresh banana leaves.  Cooked with coconut milk and sugar, this suman creation is both delicate and with a crunch.

Latik –  the sweetened form of the coconut milk, cooked till dark in color and then added into the sticky rice mixture before being cooked in coconut milk and sugar.

Adlai – two types of rice mixture was used in this suman.  One is your standard sticky rice and another is one that is high in fiber.  This suman creation can be considered  healthy because of the high fiber content that helps in the digestion of food.

Langka/Nangka – slivers of ripe langka (visayan: nangka), is place into the sticky rice and then wrapped in fresh banana leaves before being cook in their standard coconut milk-sugar mixture. 

People can’t have enough of this sticky rice mixture that some even came back to buy more of it.  They can’t believe that you can have that many variations of sticky rice creations and still be delicious and true to the nature of suman.   Such were the feedback given especially during the 3rd-day Regional Lunch, which was attended by all the delegates present in the event.

As of the moment, this sticky rice cake creation can be bought in the House of Suman in Clarin, Misamis Occidental.  For further inquiries regarding the product, you can reach the PR/Social Media team of TBDC thru 09778400606 (Kezia Noblia – Account Director).

Not only can he create drinks of wonder but also food of delights.  He has collaborated with other restaurants creating flavors that are tongue-talizing to one’s senses.  He also now have a restaurant where in shows his kitchen and bar skills.  Like any other chef’s, he believes in stimulating the senses of people to enjoy the bounty coming from Earth.  Not only are his drinks visually and taste bud-dancingly good but also has texture and scent delight.  He likes to explore the local market of a certain place to know the community and see what unknown goods he can harvest and try in his laboratory.  Part of the long list of bars and restaurants wherein his creations are featured are:  Big Bad Wolf, Gorda, Green Pastures and 2020/XXXX.  No small thanks to his brand Destileria Limtuaco and Locally (NutriStar), for supporting him in his visions and aspirations.

He is a man of duty and obligation. Kalel knows how to balance his personal life with that of this work demand; a caring individual to those who are close, important and of value to him.  Despite his tight work schedule, he still manages to give time and space to himself and those he love.

Liquid may be his working craft but Kalel delivers with a punch to remind you of the experience you had with his creative concoction.

A Hyundai Revolution at MIAS 2017

Following its phenomenal comeback and grand launch of the nationwide brand campaign, “Ang Gusto Mo, Gusto ng Puso,” at last year’s Manila International Auto Show (MIAS), Hyundai Asia Resources, Inc. (HARI), official distributor of Hyundai vehicles in the Philippines, returns to MIAS this year with another fresh take on customer-driven innovation.

“Gusto,” inspired, conceived, and driven by the Filipino customer’s dreams, needs, and values, now gets a 360-degree spin with Gusto Ko, Kaya Ko, Sama Tayo, crowning Hyundai’s 16 years as the Filipino’s lifetime partner in mobility and beyond.

17577936_1772500196097258_1864193430_n

With a brilliant track record of having introduced products and services that revolutionized the local automotive Industry, HARI is out to beat its own record by driving new value into the current landscape.

HYUNDAI CRETA

Headlining the Hyundai “Gusto Revolution” is the launch of the inspirational and aspirational “Pagsundo,” the Hyundai Gusto anthem, composed and performed by Up Dharma Down; the introduction of the Hyundai Creta and Genesis G90; the official launch of the Hyundai Assembly Center, featuring the rollout of the first locally assembled units of EON and H350; and the kickoff of the First Hyundai Innovation Congress (ICON).

Watch the video from the link below;

https://www.facebook.com/hyundaiph/videos/1307556402672233/

In addition, MIAS guests will get a more heightened experience of Hyundai’s renewed commitment to be part of each and every customer journey via interactive activities with the One Hyundai Club (OHC), the industry’s pioneering distributor-based customer loyalty program, now re-branded as the new and more expansive One Hyundai Family (OHF); and seamless connection with HARI and its dealership network via the Hyundai mobile app.

Hyundai Creta on the road1

Genesis G90

New Models: Creta, Genesis G90

Hailed as “The Perfect SUV”, the Hyundai Creta has been making waves in other countries and was awarded as the “Best-selling SUV of 2016” and the “2016 Indian Car of the Year.” Designed to have “strength and beauty, inside and out,” The Creta boasts of better passenger space and increased leg room, making it tower over its rivals, literally and figuratively.

The Genesis G90 is the flagship model of Genesis Motors, the luxury vehicle division of the Hyundai Motor Company. Boasting of design inspired by the moment an archer draws the bow to unleash a perfectly balanced tension that propels an arrow at its target, the G90 exudes athletic elegance derived from this fusion of power and poise.

There’s always room for all with the Hyundai H350. The H350 belongs to Hyundai’s lineup of commercial vehicles, making it the new trend leader in the CV market. Aside from its versatility (the H350 can be configured into a cargo van, a passenger van or a flatbed truck), the H350’s spacious cabin, clear visibility, and supreme car-like comfort makes it the prime choice for those who desire excellent passenger mobility for their customers.

Hyundai Assembly Center

The long-awaited rise of the first Hyundai Assembly Center in the Philippines located in Calamba, Laguna, heralds the advancement of Hyundai brand presence in the region. This new investment by Hyundai Motor Company (HMC), on its 50th year and its 15th year of solid partnership with HARI, signifies the Korean auto giant’s solid confidence in the Philippine market and the current business climate by choosing the country as its potential gateway to the ASEAN.

First Hyundai Innovation Congress (ICON)

With the kickoff of the First Hyundai Innovation Congress, “Harnessing Accessible and Responsive Innovation,” HARI brings the Hyundai philosophy of “innovation for humanity” closer to the hearts, homes, and businesses of the Filipino.

ICON engages leaders from government and the private sector in a dialogue that would spark the creation of do-able measures to drive the culture of innovation across businesses and industries. Topics include: “Unlocking Keys to Innovation Excellence,” “Future-proofing Innovation,” “Advancing Innovation-based ASEAN,” and “Disruptive Shift in the Automotive Industry.”

Explains Ms. Agudo, “We launched Gusto with the idea of aspiration, of listening to what our customers need and want. Now we take a step further with Kaya Ko, because we actually have and continue to respond to the hearts of our customers. From there, we take our shared journey forward: Sama Tayo because, together, we achieve the success that we seek–for ourselves, for the economy, for the nation. I think that is what being the most beloved brand and trusted partner of Filipinos is about.”

 

About HARI

Hyundai Asia Resources, Inc. (HARI), the official distributor of Hyundai vehicles in the Philippines, is the third top ranking automotive firm in the country. Hailed four times as Hyundai’s Asia-Pacific Distributor of the Year (2005, 2006, 2008, and 2013), and Hyundai Global Distributor of the Year 2010 in less than a decade of its operations, HARI boasts of a 42-strong dealer network, superior after-sales, dealer and customer relations support, and an enviable roster of best-selling vehicles.

POLICE CHIEF INSPECTOR JOVIE ESPENIDO DECLARES OZAMIZ AS NEAR 0 DRUG ACTIVITY CITY IN THE SOUTH Ozamiz City
Image may contain: outdoor
-New Police Chief Inspector Jovie Espenido declares that Ozamiz City is a near – 0 – drug free activity in the whole of Misamis Occidental. Out of the 10 drug test buy activity conducted, only 2 of it held illegal drugs and it is not clear whether the source is from the city itself or from another location.
Transferred from Albuera, Leyte last 2016, Police Chief Inspector Espenido is glad to find the local government open to discussions on drug bust activities in the city. After being tagged as the new drug-buster of Leyte, Espenido is now faced with clearing the name of Ozamiz City as an active drug activity place in Mindanao.
From the latest regular session meet last January 16, 2017 held at the city hall of Ozamiz, he was invited to present his assessment on the latest drug activity in the city. For him, this open door policy exhibited by the local government is a positive sign for him to create a good relationship with the local government and the police force.
Based on his assessment report presented to the local government, the drug activity of the place is quite minimal compared to the perception of those non-residents of the said city. His is quite positive that this present trend will lead from minimal to 0-drug related activity in a couple of years since the local government is in full support in eradicating all illegal drug activity in their city.
From the side of the local government, they are quite pleased with the assessment report presented by the new police chief inspector and shall continue to maintain an open door discussion with the police force to help eliminate the false assumption held by those who has initially believed in the high drug activity in the city.
This latest development between the police force and the local government is a clear sign of a hand-in-hand cooperation and relationship in fighting all illegal drug activity in the area of Misamis Occidental starting with Ozamiz City.

Hyundai highlights US spending plan before Trump inaugurated

SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — Hyundai Motor Group said Tuesday it will significantly increase its investment in the U.S. while Donald Trump is president and is considering building a new U.S. factory. Chung Jin Haeng, a president of the world’s fifth-largest automotive group, said Hyundai Motor, Kia Motors and their affiliated companies will spend $3.1 billion by 2021 on research and development and maintaining their factories in Alabama and Georgia.

That represents a 50 percent increase from the $2.1 billion the companies invested in the U.S. in 2012-2016. The increased spending comes mostly from research and development, as the South Korean maker of the Genesis and Tucson invests in artificial intelligence, autonomous driving, environmentally friendly cars and other future technologies.

Chung said Hyundai will study building a new U.S. factory if demand for cars rises during Trump’s administration. The new administration’s promise to create 1 million jobs and attract new companies could stimulate demand for cars and other products, he said.

"If there is such a sign, we will immediately review (the new plant)," he told reporters. "We won’t miss when the time is right." Hyundai did not provide any further details about a possible new plant.

The South Korean group does not usually disclose its five-year investment plan for specific countries, and the announcement of the U.S.-specific investment plans comes just a few days before the president-elect takes office on Friday.

Since Trump won the election, he has badgered auto companies about building their cars in the United States rather than Mexico. The South Korean automotive conglomerate has not yet drawn public attention from the president-elect, who threatened to impose a border tax on vehicles made in Mexico by Ford Motor Co., General Motors Co. and Toyota.

Automakers have responded to Trump’s threat by affirming their commitment to the U.S. market. Earlier this month, Ford announced it had scrapped plans to build a new $1.6 billion small-car factory in Mexico while Fiat Chrysler announced a $1 billion investment plan in its two U.S. factories.

Nearly all automakers build small cars in Mexico to take advantage of its lower wages. Hyundai is not an exception. When Kia’s first Mexico plant launched operations just two months before the Nov. 8 election, the group said about 80 percent of the vehicles assembled there will be exported mainly to the United States and other countries. The plant has a capacity to turn out 400,000 cars per year.

That Mexico plant is now "a source of worry" for the carmaker, Chung said, without elaborating why. He said Hyundai does not plan additional investments in Mexico. He denied that political pressure was behind the company’s announcement of its U.S. investment plan.

"The U.S. market is strategically important for us," he said. "Success or the failure in the U.S. market is a measure of global success."

OZAMIZ CITY- Last December 28, 2016, The Local Government of Ozamiz City held a Peace and Order Meeting to foster improved coordination among various institutions, agencies and other stakeholders to bring about a more peaceful Ozamiz City. During the event, Mayor Reynaldo “Aldong” Parojinog was overwhelmed over the presence of the City Peace and Order Council members who wholeheartedly supported his administration. “Operation Tokhang led by the City PNP has given us and the Ozamiznon a sound sleep.

This is the result of our renewed trust and full cooperation with the PNP.” Parojinog said. “Regaining trust and strengthening our unity will truly make our goals and objectives possible,” Parojinog added. He also said that the City government of Ozamiz is very serious in eliminating the illegal drugs and helping the victims to surrender to law enforcers. “I would be very happy seeing illegal drug dealers, pushers, users, victims and patients who willfully surrender before the government. This and more could have not been possible without the full support of all Ozamiznon.” Parojinog said. Police Chief Inspector Jovie Espinido, Lt. Col. Hadjial Talib, Prosecutor Gines Beduya, Vice Mayor Nova Princess Parojinog, DILG Provincial Director Pablio Benitez Jr., CLGOO DILG Ozamiz Jenny Villagonzalo, Gilron Sumalpong of NBI among others were in attendance during the Meeting.
