GILAS PILIPINAS: FIBA Olympic Qualifying Tournament

This is it! I can't wait! We've already won the rights to host the FIBA Olympi Qualifying Tournament this 2016 and we're raring to go where no Filipino has gone before (well we did in 1936 and the years thereafter) but it's been a while since we've actually had a basketball team on the world map. We've done the legwork, we've conquered huge teams and placed 1st Runner Up in FIBA Asia Qualifiers. We've beaten world ranked countries and taken Gilas Pilipinas out there, impressing even the best people in the industry... and this is our chance to bring back that glory we've been longing for.

They've already announced the final 12 players, and we've seen the exhibition games happen in other countries. As they all come home and be joined by the rest of the country, Gilas Pilipinas will attempt to win that single slot and overcome a lot of other countries to make it there.

Our first touch of eurasian country Turkey will happen on July 1 at 7PM. This is just a tune up game yet a great venue to gauge how we'll fare with other countries when it comes to the real thing on July 5-10, 2016. The other qualifiers will happen in cities like Turin, Italy and Belgrade, Serbia. The Philippines will be pit against France, New Zealand and whoever is going to rank top in those dates. Games will be at the Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City and it will be shown live on the happiest network in the country, TV5 with updates from Sports 5 PH too.

Gilas Pilipinas' Final 12 is composed of Jayson Castro, Ranidel de Ocampo, Troy Rosario, Ryan Reyes, Gabe Norwood Jeff Chan, June Mar Fajardo, Marc Pingris, Japeth Aguilar, Terrence Romeo, Andray Blatche and Bobby Ray Parks Jr. Unfortunately L.A. Tenorio and Calvin Abueva are out. This was announced by Tab Baldwin before their tune up game with China in Italy. The coach was adamant declaring it was because of numbers that they decided to choose the roster but I'm sure they were NOT short of HEART. Make sure you'll be there and purchase tickets at SM Tickets ( Ticket prices go as much as Php 14,945 for VIP, Php 12,810 for Patron, Php 10,675 for Lower Box, Php 430 for Upper Box and Php 215 for General Admission (as seen on site).

Bring your hearts, let's all cheer behind Gilas Pilipinas and say "Laban Pilipinas! Puso!" (Fight Philippines! With all your heart!).

Smart Padala Launches New Endorser Angel Locsin

Wednesday, June 29, 2016

It was rainy but we had good news to share as Smart Padala gets their hands even more into the lives of the Filipinos when they launched a partnership between them and Voyager's Paymaya system. They are further enabling and bringing more services to Smart Padala centers. They also have a new brand ambassador, my very own love Ms. Angel Locsin!

All of their products are now inter operable and can get their services easily but harder for those who are unscrupulous. They're also integrating this in existing businesses so you know your money is safe. Angel also shared her experience because she got to send Php 3,001 so she could get discounts. But for regular rates, it's just 2% and it doesn't matter what network you're using in the Philippines. They also have partners overseas so you can get remittances abroad too if that's applicable to relatives like OFW's and friends elsewhere.

It's cheaper, convenient and safe. They are also 15,000 strong. Angel Locsin was gorgeous btw! I love her!

PLDT SME Nation Set to Hold #BeTheBoss 2016

Tuesday, June 28, 2016

I was there the last time they announced the winners last year and this time, PLDT SME Nation is doing it again in partnership with Rappler. They're trying to find a new set of entrepreneurs (who's already done it!) that utilize the digital space and change the game once again.

This year, they're looking for individuals that can fit the title Boss for E-Commerce (for innovative applications of online services), Boss for Social Media (for growing communities using social media), Boss for Social Responsibility (for those who give back to the community), and Boss for Innovative Solutions (for services and ideas that cater to a large audience). 

Last year's winners were Kim Lato (for Kimstore), top wedding videographer Jason Magbanua (my personal idol), Timefree Innovations' Chino Atilano, Messy Bessy founder Kristine Reyes, and MobKard's Carlo Calimon. They all received bussiness kits (worth thousands of pesos) plus the trip to Silicon Valley all paid for by SME Nation. 

"We want to empower micro, small and medium enterprises so they could grow their business so they too could look at young entrepreneurs who have proven they could do it!" says PLDT SME nation VP Mitch Locsin. You can nominate them online now at .
