Foundations Forge Partnership: Investing in Youth Through Tech Education

Wednesday, July 10, 2024


Two entities, SM Foundation and BingoPlus Foundation just formed a partnership in order to provide technology based education for those in exposed communities. The plan is for the BingoPlus FutureSmart and SM Foundation scholarship programs to fund those with interests in Game Development, Software Engineering and Data Science. They will also be supporting those who would delve in Web Development, Multimedia Arts, Design, and IT. This will benefit over 30 students for the upcoming school year.

DigiPlus is making headway in making sure the 100 Million Pesos of investments (through grants and partnerships like these) they are pouring in would benefit Filipino lives, the IT industry, especially since they are an entertainment corp that is all digital.

Debbie Sy the Executive Director and Trustee from SM Foundation reiterates how this collaboration is transformative and could create a huge impact for future professionals of the Philippine IT industry.

PIOLO, SARAH, MATTEO and Sun Life Invites You to PLAY FOR LIFE!


The first line I heard from the speakers in this event, they said "Knowing is not equal to experience"; so in Sun Life's recent campaign they introduced to us not just financial advice, but lessons in this advocacy and planning.

Targeting Gen Z means dealing with people who have more than usual knowledge about investing in insurance and mutual funds. Sun Life is a pioneer in both fronts, and even in more certain times, Sun Life wants to simplify, more relatable through a game. They call it PLAY FOR LIFE.

Piolo, Sarah, and Matteo played the boardgame versions as well... Matteo won their round!

Sun Fit and Well for Donny Pangilinan - one that can cover health mishaps and hospitalization. They also are into preventive wellness, critical illness benefits, and specific cancer booster benefits. This also includes special bonuses and dividend earnings if you prefer to also invest done in a limited payment period. It is also affordable.


Sun Smarter Life Classic for the Guidicellis - because having double coverage is possible. Aside from the life insurance, you can do it double the face amount. It protects you from accidents, disability and illnesses. You can also use this as a fund in case of emergencies.

Sun Legacy for Piolo Pascual - This one is a protection and savings plan. Since Piolo knows how to save, this has lifetime insurance coverage up until the age of 100. This also has cash benefits, access to money when you need it, and short payment options if you want to pay for it easy. 



They also launched the "Play for Life" Game which can be done in life sized versions, board games or online versions. They plant to do these at Mall tours on July 27-28 in SM Sta Rosa, SM Lanang on Aug 24-25 and more tba. This certainly makes talk and understanding the things about Sun Life more fun. Actually, I tried the board game version versus other press and bloggers, and won in the end! 

Now it's your turn to play! Check out playforlife.sunlife.com.ph today!

Director Cathy Camarillo Served Needed "KILIG" in #BarDa Film THAT KIND OF LOVE

Tuesday, July 09, 2024

Barbie Forteza and David Licauco stars in new funny-romance film THAT KIND OF LOVE 
(Photo by RandomRepublika's Kate Adajar)
 
After leaving the SM Cinemas during the "THAT KIND OF LOVE" Premiere Night, I felt quite relieved about how Director Catherine Camarillo made her recent films. After the well received "Chances Are: You and I" which stars Kelvin Miranda and Kira Ballinger, this new one probably had easier merits to execute because of the fact that this is the first film of Barbie Forteza and David Licauco. 
 

The pairing had remarkable success in their previous shows (ie Maria Clara at Ibarra, Maging Sino Ka Man), and putting out a film wouldn't be a walk in the park because it doesn't necessarily mean that if you are good on TV, it would be the same with box office returns; because they admit, the movie industry is still ailing in some way shape or form.

This one though, holds a lot of promise. It's way different than what Barbie and David have been doing on TV for sure, and Direk CC took time to execute Ellis Catrina's vision of not only establishing these new characters, but how they could fall in love with their individual quirks, and make people feel that KILIG from start to finish.

This is exactly what the film offers. It's got a bit of laughter, a bit of romance, plus a solid love story. I feel above all, it's a gift for the #BarDa fans out there. She plays a matchmaker, while David is "The Perfect Guy". They have different upbringing, they have different set of friends, their outlook in life is not the same. When David's character talked to Barbie in the movie, he wanted her to set him up for a date. He was perfect, but he wasn't quite successful in that department. They both had egos, and the story of how they eventually fell in love is what's going to make you interested in this movie.

Director Cathy Camarillo knows how to put things together. Her first one was good, this one is better. Although on a different spectrum, this just makes all the #BarDa wishes come true. Think of what you want the #BarDa to become, and it's probably in this movie. The experience watching it on the silver screen is lovely, I guess the darkness makes you enjoy it more because nobody could see if you are smiling on your own... or crying, so nobody would judge you. That's the perk you get watching it in a cinema. 

THAT KIND OF LOVE will show on theaters this coming July 10th. Barbie and David would love for you to see what they've been working on. It's a really good #BarDa project, go watch it without a care in the world. Feel that same "KILIG" Direk CC wants you to feel, it's meant to be like that.

This film is produced by Pocket Media Productions Inc., Pocket Media Films and Happy Infinite Productions Inc. It will also be released by Regal Entertainment nationwide. Thank you to Digital Out of Home Inc. for being part of this too, who made it possible for us to cover the event! Muchas gracias!

Generals, Officers Issue Manifesto of Support for Colonel ARIEL QUERUBIN PN (Marines)

Monday, July 08, 2024



I was among heroes this morning from the Marines, Philippine Navy, the Philippine Army and the Philippine National Police, all servant warriors as they pledge their support for Coloner Ariel Querubin, the most bemedalled Filipino soldier in history (including the coveted Medal of Valor).

Aside from the call for solidarity and heroism, he, along with 2000 Generals and Officers from different branches of the military are now signifying their support for his bid in running for the Senate.







When Ariel Querubin went up on stage, he discussed how even the venue of the event was instrumental in the history of the country. That no matter how divided people may have been in the past few years, they were there all together to support him. Querubin knows how this time, they are there for their children, their families, and stand united for God and country. He also emphasized how important it is to address external and internal threats, as our sovereignty is on the line.

He is able and willing to serve, a man who's capabilities are now backed by thousands of officers in the military, of it's different branches... And if you want a warrior in the Senate who can spark change, perhaps you know who could do it after the remarkable recommendation of these men and women. The entire nation deserves a good one.

Teased Then Confirmed: AI Portrait Master HONOR 200

Tuesday, July 02, 2024

There's nowhere to go but up with phone brand HONOR Philippines as they initially teased and confirmed the arrival of AI Portrait Master HONOR 200. What's even better is that they're also giving away an HONOR 200 via their FB Live broadcast this coming July 17 at 7PM. To be sure, you may have the event be alerted on your account via this broadcast link https://bit.ly/HONOR200SeriesLaunch_PR

Aside from the usual hardware, they developed the main camera together with Studio Harcourt so the portrait option would have exceptional quality. Output will be of studio quality. You don't even have to go to Paris to achieve that. Their VP Stephen Cheng recommends this to students, young professionals, content creators who would want quality output.

It's also got AI powered portrait capabilities, something that would change the game in getting flagship phone features and still deliver awesome performance. If you're excited as I am, make sure you save the stream so you wouldn't get left behind!

KIANA V Showcases "Sweet Release" Music Video

Saturday, June 29, 2024





The last time I saw Kiana was during the concert of her Dad Gary Valenciano. The prolific singer and songwriter just released the music video for her single "Sweet Release" which now can be seen on different platforms. Another feather to her hat, she worked as Director in this video together with her equally talented brother Gab, and MJ Arda. She also did edit the actual MV, something she prefers to add a personal touch on her work. 

MJ Arda though is no stranger to the business as he also choreographed several sequences with the ATeam. Unquestionably, this looks like a visual feast for the eyes. 

Kiana won Best Female R&B Recording Artist at the PMPC Star Awards, and this "Sweet Release" single won't shortchange those who adore her kind of music. It will be released 9am Manila Time and 6PM PST through Kiana's social channels. 

Certainly, a performer, singer and songwriter of her own credits. Congratulations Kiana!

GAB VALENCIANO Continues to Shine in US




Gab Valenciano surely didn't mind being a person from a very talented clan. It's been years and now, he's not just a son to Dad Gary but a very spirited Dancer/Choreographer who made headlines with his moves in viral video "Super Selfie". No less than Beyonce took notice and got the moves done in her 7/11 video a couple years back. 

Imagine, doing a thing in Florida, then having it be done by one of the greatest artists in the world, where it racked up 6000 million views. This just makes his efforts of finishing recording arts and engineering doubly special right? The move even got him nominated at MTG Video Music Awards for Best Choreography. Unbelievable to be credited in that together with greats Chris Grant and B herself!

Locally, he even did work for several soap operas on home station ABSCBN plus a few awards in the bag for Best Inspirational Song, Best Secular Song, Best Musical Score for several tracks he did on ABSCBN shows and indie film Alagwa which starred Jericho Rosales. He also did several music videos for his Dad, Yassi Pressman, Kai Buizon, and lovely sister Kiana. 

He's talented and a very accomplished motorcycle champ, he also did a few commercials, radio jingles, and recently, the TFC 30 Happy Hour during independence day celebrations in Texas. The man is now residing in the USA and still performs, does a lot of projects to feed his passion. 

Good job Gab!

Present during the tour and visit were David Riofero the Public Affairs Manager of World Vision Philippines, Pascual Lab's SVP and Cheif Manufacturing Officer Hignio Porte and their executives at the Pascual Lab Bulacan facility.

World Vision also awarded the Pascual Lab team with their Certificate of Appreciation for their efforts with World Vision and their communities. Volunteers (comprising also of Pascual Lab employees) explained the history and innovations that the company has achieved over the years. This happened last June 4, an activity that got both elementary and high school scholars to participate and learn about the company's rich history, in hopes they also learn from it.

The 4 year partnership had surely been able to produce graduates, improve the lives of several kids, teens, so they too would be able to help their family, and community. They also had programs in health and nutrition, education, values formation, religion, child protection, entrepreneurship, disaster preparedness and emergency response fields.

LEO ALMODAL Does Nature Inspired Show at OKADA


Leo Almodal is no stranger to couture gowns and suits. I've seen several pieces he's put out with some celebrities in events I've been... and covered. This time, it's his grand 65 piece collection that he's showcasing at Okada's Grand Ballroom. Sure enough, he didn't disappoint onlookers with jaw dropping gowns worn by some of Manila's most gorgeous models, beauty queens and celebrities.

If you didn't get to catch the show, as always, KUMAGCOW.COM has it covered. Please, enjoy!


Leo's fashion show was obviously nature inspired, with exquisite couture pieces right from the start. You'll see how he tries to outdo his first creation with another one, equally merging earth, sea and air elements with flowy, fluffy textile adorned with crystals and gems at front and back.

We were also surprised with the participation of the sultry and talented actress Sanya Lopez. Max Collins was also fitting to open the show, I didn't really recognize her until her second outfit because everything looked ethereal, they looked like goddesses walking on the runway.

Aside from them, Arci Munoz, Ara Mina, Herlene Budol, Drag Race PH Winner Captivating Katkat, beauty queens Jamie Herrell, Michelle Gomez, Gazini Ganados, Yllana Marie Aduana, Maureen Montagne, Emma Tiglao, Jennifer Lloyd, Tracy Maureen Perez, Ingrid Sta. Maria, Krishna Marie Gravidez and Ghene Latugat showcased more of the gowns in different parts of the show. Several noted models carried them all so well, we all drooled from start to finish.

 I do agree with the producer when she mentioned that Leo Almodal is a genius. This collection has shown how talented this Filipino designer is, and seeing that this will also be done in other countries (as we speak) will be fitting as he gives only the best in his designs. You should take note of the Blue Sea Slug like gown, the Gold one that opened the show and the Red Rose colored one before the end of the show. Those are standouts, and my personal favorites!

Congratulations on doing this heavenly show Leo! After seeing all these, I'd be honored to wear a suit from you!

Merck Set to Release Fertility Count Scorecard at ASPIRE Congress

Tuesday, June 25, 2024



Population has always been at an all time high in the Philippines, and what better place to launch this new initiative by Merck: a Fertility Count Scorecard. It's also the best time to happen because it was all laid out during the ASPIRE Congress.

The matter has affected everything socially and economically but this counts as something that would encourage policy makers to incentivize those who choose to pro create and build communities especially in emerging economies like ours.  

Albeit having a slight reduction in birth rates compared to the past decade, they attribute this dip to fertility preferences and the various programs in population control.

Merck has noted this (our country) as a key market compared to those that are in the Asia Pacific Region. We should realize that the key should be making it sustainable, one that would not inhibit growth and development. Our choices will greatly impact what we need as a society, because as much as we don't admit it, a lot of the developed countries are having problems in workforce and declining birth rates.  

For those who don't know, the ASPIRE congress is a place to exchange information especially for those who have a say in decisions that affect a population. This also includes how to provide healthcare and plans on having a manageable birth rate at the end of the day. They also plan to have discussions about it in the event especially for local attendees and regional ones. We are after all, family friendly, and creating a society would be enabling us to implement great policies, and not just lip service.

For Merck to release this Fertility Count Scorecard, it would be quite valuable in a global perspective especially for business leaders or those who plan ahead. The methodology is also a bit more scientific, backed by data, which hopefully would get implemented well. So if you want to know more, just check out the data they have at fertilitycounts.com.

BARBIE FORTEZA and DAVID LICAUCO Wishes Box Office Success for "THAT KIND OF LOVE"

Monday, June 24, 2024

Looks like the quest of finding love will be easy when you watch this new movie called THAT KIND OF LOVE. This stars well loved pairing Barbie Forteza and David Licauco, popularly known as #BarDa. 

They've been really followed quite intensely during GMA series "Maria Clara at Ibarra", but this is the first time that they are doing a movie, under neophyte Pocket Media Productions Inc. The material was crafted by Ellis Catrina who has made this specifically for them. This is directed by Catherine O. Camarillo, who's first film under the same outfit "Chances are, You and I" was well received by critics for its very compelling story.


 

"That Kind of Love" will be featured  in Japan as a spotlight entry under the Jinseo Arigato International Festival. This will be held in Nagoya, Japan. While the local screening will start on July 10th which is a few weeks from now. They will also be doing a premiere night on July 4th, so make sure you go and support them (especially if you are a BarDa fan). Know that parts of the movie has been shot in South Korea. Both Barbie and David enjoyed doing scenes in Seoul where much of the shoot happened.

Barbie says "There were so many risks done in making this movie. There is pressure, much so because people are just starting to go back to cinemas. But I am confident about our project, our film, because who doesn't want to feel good? to fall in love? This is what we want to offer, and our goal is for you to fall in love with David once you go out of the theater."

David adds "We are pressured, but I know how good the material is. This is also directed by Direk CC. As long as we do our part in promoting the film, I know this will do good in the box office. I can control the things that I can do, so we just have to promote and help the movie."


People have already seen the trailer, and had really good feedback. The Director mentioned how this is not the work of one person, but a lot of people who did their best to make this movie what it is now. It's a quality film, and Barbie wants people to patronize the movie based on its merits, and because it is done excellently. She also hopes that Filipinos start watching Filipino made films first before they venture on watching other films from different countries. Here are parts of the press conference where we asked questions for Barbie, David, Ms. Arlene Mulach, Divine Aucina, Ivan Carapiet and Jef Gaitan who were there that afternoon. .

As of today, word has it that the fan base of both Barbie and David are arranging block screenings in different theaters nationwide. They are also asking Sparkle management for a little lee way in their schedules so they could attend the screenings as they happen.

I felt how happy Ms. Arlene was when she told the story of how kilig she got when she saw Barbie and David portrayed Mila and Adam. Will this perfect guy fall in love with the dating guru? Who knows! Best to watch it in cinemas when it goes out on the 10th!
