Heaven’s Barbeque - “A Bite of Heaven in a Stick “

 
heaven logoHave you tasted lately one of the Most tastier Barbeque in town? If not ,you can visit Heaven’s Barbeque, It’s like eating food made in heaven which you cannot resist and you will come again and again.
heaven magHeaven’s Barbeque  is almost 8 years in the market and they are published by he FOOD FIESTA TREAS Magazine the one who has unique taste and has a peculiar  and tastier foods in town.

Barbeques are part of the Filipino pop culture and cuisine. You can find a barbeque stand just about anywhere, and Bacolod-home-grown barbeque joints have sprouted all over the city. Sadly though, not everybody get their barbeques right. I have tasted a lot of pork barbeques in this lifetime – as I’m sure you have, too – but Heaven’s Barbeque stood out with its tender, soft meat even after some time off the grill.

The first Heaven’s Barbeque is located in Malugay St. cor. Buendia Ave. in Makati. Centrally located at the heart of the metro, it caters to professionals working in the surrounding skyscrapers, students from nearby schools and even the posh subdivisions around the city. From this first branch, it has now 8 other branches strategically-located around Metro Manila, operating on different business models (Full Line Store, Express Take Out Counter, Kiosk, Cart). They take pride in the fact that they only use high-quality and choice-meat, all naturally-flavored and prepared fresh everyday. Heaven’s Barbeque had been proclaimed Best Barbeque by Food Magazine, first in May 2009 and once again in May 2013, besting out other barbeques available in Metro Manila.
In a city where food businesses come and go, Heaven’s Barbeque had been around for almost a decade, in testament to the quality of food and service they consistently give to their clients. I have been given a chance to visit their branch in Malugay, and the experience was certainly more than what I expected. From an unassuming fa├žade outside, I have not expected to come in a quaint space that exudes such a homey feel. Just the vibe alone already makes you comfortable, and ready for your meal. The Paella Style platter with 2 chicken wings, 4 BBQ sticks, Liempo and Porkchop atop Paella-flavored rice was such a no-frills, honest dish.
heaven IMG_7617
The flavored rice was such a hit, and the meats were grilled to perfection. The special sauce that came with the meats was the definite match, and I just wanted to have more. Heaven’s Barbeque also serves Rice Bowl Toppings that was priced below Php100, and is definitely a steal. They also serve Pancit which had a distict character all its own, and can be paired with their barbeques as well. For more rice options, they also have bacon- and garlic-flavored rice, which are perfect with the barbeque just the same.
So, the next time you find yourself craving for barbeque, don’t settle for just ubiquitous ones you find everywhere, get yourself to the nearest Heaven’s Barbeque branch and enjoy a hearty meal with a bite of heaven in your stick of meat.

COV.03.18.13.indd

Out of all the 50 companies listed, 3M is ranked as the 21st (No.1 in the Medical Equipment Category). Criteria used to gather such award is attributed to nine aspects of reputation such as innovation, people management, use of corporate assets, social responsibility, quality of management, financial soundness, long-term investment, quality of products/services, and global competitiveness. Another reason for the award is the company’s trademark for choosing projects of their choice 15% of the time and the annual expectation of 30% in their $30 billion annual revenue from products introduced in the market in the last five years.

Now that global issues have been relative to the environment, 3M continuously stands firm with its green leanings by exhausting the use of materials less harmful for the environment such as light. Energy conservation is also one of its targets and thus one of its focuses for upcoming creative projects. Another interesting fact about 3M is that they help other businesses succeed on their own by collating new ideas and concepts, initiating suggestive processes and revamping manufacturing cycles. All of these help the sustainability of 3M in the industry, continuously thriving and outstanding.

HISTORY OF THE EAGLES AVAILABLE ON DVD AND BLU-RAY

 

IMG_4909

I am one who is privilege to watched the History of the Eagles the band who has make the music industry alive and they have surpassed all the generations since they  began.

IMG_4944

Before the movie start stars like Siti and Nyoy Volante renders songs to the press like Desperado to give tribute and acknowledgement to the Eagle which they idolize personally.

500_EGLS_c1977_Courtesy of Eagles Archives  Eagles kind of music does goes with every genre that has comes our way. The movie was a very vivid yet true and exact story on how they started and I was struck how her mother does the sacrifice of buying his son a drum set and just being cooperative to what her son wants in life no matter what or how risky the move it takes .

Universal Music Group has acquired the exclusive DVD/Blu-ray rights to History of the Eagles, the iconic band’s acclaimed documentary, which is set for release last April 29. This exceptional three-disc set includes History of the Eagles Part One and History of the Eagles Part Two, as well as Eagles Live At The Capital Centre - March 1977, featuring never-before-released performances from the Eagles’ two-night stand at Washington, D.C.’s Capital Center during the legendary Hotel California tour.

History of the Eagles will be released in both DVD and Blu-ray two-disc configurations – all with 5.1 Surround Sound and Stereo audio. A Deluxe Box Set will be released as a limited edition, complete with all three DVD discs (Parts One & Two, and, the bonus 1977 Capital Centre live concert); a 40-page hardback book featuring still photos from the films, all presented in a bespoke hard case box.

Seeking to provide an unprecedented and intimate look into the history of the band and the legacy of its music, the Eagles partnered with Academy Award-winning filmmaker Alex Gibney (Taxi to the Dark Side, Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room) to produce the film. Directed by Alison Ellwood (Magic Trip: Ken Kesey’s Search for a Kool Place), History of the Eagles is a meticulous creation featuring rare archival material, concert footage, and never-before-seen home movies that explore the evolution and enduring popularity of one of the world’s biggest-selling and culturally significant American bands.

History of the Eagles made its television broadcast debut on Showtime last month, earning the network its highest ratings for a music documentary in eight years. Part One premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January to great acclaim.

History of the Eagles Part One dedicates two hours to the chronicling of the band’s creation and rise to fame in the 1970’s through its breakup in 1980. More than 25 new and exclusive interviews were conducted with all current band members -- Glenn Frey, Don Henley, Joe Walsh and Timothy B. Schmit - as well as former members Bernie Leadon, Randy Meisner and Don Felder. Also featured are new and exclusive interviews with Jackson Browne, Linda Ronstadt, Kenny Rogers, Irving Azoff and many other seminal artists and band contemporaries who have been closely involved with the Eagles’ history.

While personal stories from band members, managers, and music industry luminaries frame the narrative, it’s the unexpected moments—recording sessions, backstage interactions, and even a whimsical sequence from the Desperado cover shoot—that convey the extraordinary bond linking the artists, their music, and the times (an era when country-tinged rock and finely-honed harmonies spoke to a nation still reeling from unrest).

Additionally, the documentary features previously unreleased home movies and archival footage. Personal photos, video and memorabilia amassed by the Eagles over the course of their career will also be seen for the very first time.

History of the Eagles Part Two reveals the personal and professional struggles members faced while the band was apart, and chronicles the group’s dramatic reunion in 1994, as well as its resurgence in recording and performing throughout the next two decades. Among the band’s many achievements since reforming are its triumphant Hell Freezes Over tour, the 2007 release of Long Road Out of Eden (which sold more than 5.5 million copies worldwide and earned two GRAMMY® Awards), and its ongoing ascendance as an international supergroup.

Eagles Live at the Capital Centre - March 1977 features previously unreleased concert performances of “Hotel California,” “New Kid In Town,” “Take It To The Limit,” “One Of These Nights,” “Lyin’ Eyes,” “Rocky Mountain Way,” “Best Of My Love” and “Take It Easy,” all captured during the band’s two-night stand in Washington, D.C. during its historic Hotel California world tour.

Directed by Alison Ellwood and produced by Alex Gibney, History of the Eagles was created with a select crew of filmmakers including: Blair Foster, Executive Producer; Alison Ellwood and Ben Sozanski, Editors; Karim Karmi, Co-Producer; and Erin Edeiken, Line Producer.

The Eagles will appear at the Sundance London Film Festival late April at London’s O2 Arena for a special Q&A after the European premier screening of History of the Eagles Part One.

The Eagles have sold more than 120 million albums worldwide, earned five No. 1 U.S. singles and six GRAMMY® Awards.  Their Greatest Hits 1971-1975 is the best-selling album of all time, exceeding sales of 29 million units.  The band’s Hotel California and Eagles Greatest Hits, Vol. 2 have sold more than 16 million and 11 million albums, respectively.  The Eagles were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 1998.  For more information, visit the band’s website at www.eaglesband.com

HEALTHY LIFE IN EVERY BITE “POLIDENT”

 

Addressing the Unrecognized Health Issues of Denture Wearers

  IMG_4520

Do you want  to stay more productive , and athletic even if they are on their sunset of their lives. It’s happy to know and be known that there is one brand and medications that help maintain life in its maximum level.

She used to be the most energetic and lively person in the world, but gradually, your mom started to look tired and fatigued. She used to love cooking Sunday lunches for the family, tirelessly laboring in the kitchen to serve her specialty Kare-Kare. Now, Sunday lunch is a rare occurrence, and during the times it happens, your family would just order take-out food.

Your dad used to be the “athlete” in the family. He used to play Tennis, every Monday, Wednesday and Friday, basketball on Tuesday and Thursday and Golf on Saturday. On top of that, he had an 8-5 workday. He used to be the busiest man, but now, it seems that he has lost his zest for life and has transformed into a couch potato.

Sounds familiar? One need not look far to encounter issues such as these. It’s a common scene across families and with loved ones. These are just some symptoms of the unrecognized health issue amongst the elderly, which may arise from improper nutrition.

One major factor why it remains an unrecognized health issue is because we normally assume that as long as a person eats and exercises regularly, he/she is naturally healthy and not malnourished. But the truth is, a proper diet and food absorption is key to being a healthy.

Studies show that the proper mastication of our food is a major contributing factor on whether we properly absorb its nutrients. While for most of us, chewing is not a major concern, 28% of the population may have trouble chewing their food because they are either toothless or are wearing dentures.

And simply having dentures is not enough. ‘A lot of denture users are not aware that there is a proper way of wearing it. It’s not enough that it fits, it has to fit properly”, says Dr. Nunez, DMD, RDT. “This is because an ill-fitting denture will prevent a person from properly chewing their food, thus the body will not absorb the nutrient that it needs which may lead to an undiagnosed case of malnutrition.” More so, if a denture is ill-fitting, the denture wearer will usually avoid foods that are challenging to eat such as nuts, fruits and vegetables.

 IMG_4525

In fact, according to Dr. Nunez, a denture is only good for up to a maximum of five years. Also, contrary to the belief that denture users need not see their dentists, it is equally important if not more, for them to have a regular dental check-up. It is only through a regular dental check-up that a dentist can assess whether a denture fits properly.

“Another common problem is that a lot of denture users brush their dentures with a regular toothbrush and toothpaste.” adds Dr. Nunez. This is a big no – no because unlike our natural teeth, dentures are more porous thus, it requires more cleaning. But brushing it with regular toothbrush and toothpaste won’t work, because it will create abrasions on the dentures where food sediments may get stuck thus, harboring bacteria that may cause, not only bad breath, but bacteria that may contribute to stomatitis, pneumonia and other diseases.

The good news is that, in the advocacy event called, A HEALTHY LIFE IN EVERY BITE, GlaxoSmithKline, the maker of Polident, in cooperation with dental experts, aims to highlight the effects of improper use and care of dentures, which can ultimately lead to health issues amongst denture wearers. Dr. Nunez talked about ways to take care of your dentures and mentioned the usage of Denture adhesives and cleansers as one of the best ways to care for the dentures. Polident offers a denture adhesive cream and powder which can give denture wearers up to 12 hours of hold and properly fitting dentures, giving them the ability to eat, speak and smile with confidence. Polident adhesive cream can help ensure that denture wearers are able to eat the food they want and need, in turn enabling them to get the nutrition they need to live a healthy life. Polident also offers denture cleansing tablets, which kills 99.9% of odor-causing bacteria proven in lab testing. The denture tablets clean your dentures without scratching, which also help preserve the life of your dentures. Participants were also taught how to take advantage of products that help clean their dentures and keep them properly fit.

“This is a momentous event for the Philippine Dental Health. For the first time, we are recognizing and addressing a health issue that has always been

put in the back burner. Our senior citizens are an underserved sector, so much so that we didn’t see one of their prevalent health concerns and its cause. I hope this event will help us realize that we should bite this issue at its very core”, ends Dr. Nunez.

MODESS® Gives Young Girls the Chance to Make Their Move and Break Stereotypes “Girl Talk”

 

clip_image002

“GIRL, TALK”

MODESS® Gives Young Girls the Chance to Make Their Move and Break Stereotypes

 _CA_5232

Manila, 30 May 2013 – I was invited to this event and I was surprised and amazed that this time one of the leading brand in the industry specially on what women needs on their monthly  periods has launched a book to teach our young girls the need to be aware of their genetics and be more sanitize as an individual today in this era of modern and high technology .

To culminate the nationwide campaign, “Your Voice, Your Move,” MODESS® Philippines unveiled at The Mind Museum in Bonifacio Global City a special edition publication called Girl, Talk – a compilation of messages for the country’s leaders from teen girls who were too young to vote in the recent elections. The clincher? These books will be delivered to the offices of our senators for their serious consideration.

_CA_5404

“Sana bigyan nila ng pansin ang mga kabataang nasa kalye,” said Joyce.

“Hopefully we can have enough equipment like books, electric fans, and desks in every school,” said Yssa.

Deannie says: “Lahat ng sinasabi ng running senators ay importante sa tao. So, sana lahat din ay galing sa puso.”

Common themes ranged from responsible leadership, to improving education, to cleaning the Pasig, and caring for the sick and malnourished. If the breadth and depth of the youth’s comments collected in this book are any indication, then today’s youth are made of more serious stuff than we think.

“It is unfortunate that young girls are commonly viewed by adults as self-absorbed, indifferent and shallow. But MODESS® found an eye-opening insight about teenagers that challenges the way adults see them. We found that teens actually want to do big and meaningful things. What hinders them from moving and making that impact is the limited perception that society has of them,” explains Nikka Arcilla, MODESS® Assistant Brand Manager and Campaign Lead. “We at MODESS® believe that young girls have a huge potential to make a meaningful difference in the world around them. They just need a little nudge and the opportunity to make their move.”

There are roughly eight million teenage girls in the Philippines, comprising almost 10% of our population. These eight million girls represent a potential eight million innovative ideas that can benefit the country.

The MODESS® “Your Voice, Your Move” Campaign, launched in early 2013, gave these young girls that chance to speak out and have a say in the May elections, even if they could not officially vote. Teens were invited to write a shout-out message to senators on the #MakeYourMove website (makeyourmove.com.ph), so that they themselves could tell senators what change they want to see in the country. This was perhaps one of the few times teens were given the venue to contribute to an event that they are normally excluded from – national elections.

“But we didn’t want to just give teens a platform to speak up and break that shallow stereotype that adults have of them. We also wanted to make sure that these messages would be heard by the right people and be acted upon. That is why we produced the book, Girl, Talk’, which was essentially written by hundreds Filipina teenagers,” adds Nikka.

_CA_5426

In the unveiling of the book to media, youth leaders, and the MODESS® online community, campaign ambassadors Bea Binene, Louise de los Reyes and Barbie Forteza read their own quotes from the book, and talked to the press about why they feel strongly about these issues. Thought influencers, Anna Oposa from Save Philippine Seas, Paulina Miranda from the UP Diliman College of Education, Rachel Racelis from the University of Makati and Eligh Yu from Leaders International Christian School also responded to other quotes and narrated their own experiences as drivers of change, thus encouraging today’s young girls to do the same.

“This initiative is unique and particularly timely with the recent declaration of a new crop of our country’s leaders. This is the Philippines’ time to shine, and all of us – including our young people – should be part of the change for an even better Philippines,” said L.A. Ferriols who hosted the celebration.

Culminating the launch event was a dramatic send-off of the actual books to our national leaders, with the challenge for them to make their move, since teens had just made theirs.

“We believe in the power of the youth, and are a proponent of the positive impact that teenagers can make. In the recently-concluded May 2013 elections, these teens were too young to be heard. Through MODESS® and “Your Voice, Your Move,” we gave them an avenue to stand up, speak up, and make a difference. We hope that through this campaign, MODESS® inspires even more teens to make their move,” said Tina Sabarre, Johnson & Johnson Marketing Director.

Bodog Nation, Creating Super City in Manila

 

supercity

We should prove Dan Brown's novel Inferno and its reference to Manila as 'the gates of hell is a stupid taught or will just stare on the stars as it  spread throughout Manila and beyond without even doing something about it. This ill-researched and lazy assessment has also irritated the employees of Bodog Nation( http://www.bodognation.com ). Fortunately  , Bodog Nation, who recently made Manila their global Headquarters  and has over 800 people living and working here, couldn't agree more with Mr Brown's sensationalist appraisal but would like to proved to the world that everything he say’s in this book is such a junk. 

HR Director, Jade Forlani, explains: "Bodog Nation is not alone in recognizing the huge benefits of making Manila its home and the city has played a huge part in our success. As a result we are recruiting madly at the moment and have over 100 positions open. This is why we've taken the step of throwing our doors open to potential employees by having two 'Open House' events on June 17 and June 20 in our Makati and Quezon City offices to allow local people a chance to meet us and bring their resume's with them.'

bodogfire

Bodog Nation recently launched their 'Fire Yourself', a recruitment campaign designed to find more smart, talented people to join this multi-cultural, rapidly growing international company.

Bodog Nation is set to conduct its Open House events on June 17 and June 20 at its Makati and Quezon City sites. Applicants are welcome to immerse the ''work hard, party hard" culture of Bodog.

In case you need another reason to bring your resume along to the event, TV presenter, nightclub owner and self-styled 'eventologist', Tim Yap will attend the Open House event

About Bodog Nation: BodogNation is the heartbeat of the Bodog brand because it represents its own people. The Bodog Nation is currently just over 1,000 strong stretched across the globe but with its roots and headquarters firmly based in Manila.

The Bodog Nation was originally created to look after its employees and recruit regionally and those core values remain fundamental with over 100 open positions available in both Quezon City and Makati. But as the brand has grown in Asia so has the Bodog Nation and as such now wants to 'give back' to the city it calls home.Dan Brown just seems cannot get over the idea that Asia is in the mode of Booming and the West is in the freeze mode that’s why he is doing such critical lies just to hinder any Asian uprising.

bodog brigada

In the recent year, the Bodog Nation has not just donated but also undertaken a number of charitable campaigns with Department of Education, Philippine Red Cross and Haribon Foundation. The largest part of the brand is Bodog Asia, which is also based and licensed in the Philippines - under the terms of that license Bodog Asia does not offer commercial services to Philippine customers - and so it wants to make sure it showcases the fast-rising city regionally, nationally and internationally.

Bodog is a global empire that has grown since 1994. Founded by Calvin Ayre with just $10,000in start up money, Bodog has now expanded to offering a number of entertainment products, in addition to online gaming, such as record label, media production company and tv shows that are marketed worldwide.

Juana C. The Movie

 

Juana C. The Movie:
The Sexy-Comedy As A Weapon By Jessica Zafra

juana c

I have been one of the chosen to watch the premier of Juana C and somehow it shows how people on our society specially those who are in position does their dirty and wrong doings in an elegant way that’s one of their assets which most of the foreign viewer would not understand or assessed.

It’s the first time how such film with intense showing of the wrong doings and Immoral acts of most of the political personalities their lifestyles ect.  This group of actors and actresses wanted to promote good governance and independence especially on film making and other aspects of society. . 

There is a lot of sex in Juana C. the full-length film debut of the political
critic/YouTube phenomenon. Kinky sex, sex for pay, boy on boy, girl on girl,
group and something called vroom vroom. Why is there so much sex in a
movie that wears its advocacies on its XXL sleeve?

Because if we devoted 1/10th of the time we spend thinking about sex to
discussing the issues that affect our country, we would have a more
rational, responsible, better-educated society. An informed society is
harder for corrupt politicians and opportunists to take advantage of. And
because what the politicians and businessmen do to Juana Change in the
movie, they are doing to us. Our nation is being screwed by the very
same people who are supposed to protect us.

In the first offering from Laganap Productions, Juana Change is a girl who
comes to Manila to attend a prestigious university. Her townmates from
Barangay Kaploc are counting on her to lead the fight against the
corporate interests which are stealing their resources and killing their
village. But the impressionable Juana falls in with the high-living crowd
and winds up seriously in debt. How is she supposed to pay?

By selling her own natural resource: her body. And Mae Paner as Juana
Change makes an all-out bid to become the first heavyweight sex symbol
in local cinema. Socially-aware is the new sexy.

Under the tutelage of Peaches Tanquintera, the most powerful mistress,
pimp, influence peddler, and secret keeper in the Philippines, Juana meets
the people who pull the strings: the judge whose judgement is for sale,
the politicians who treat public funds as their petty cash, the military who
do their bidding, and the clergy who condone corruption. And when she
opens her legs, she learns to open her eyes and her mind to the urgent
problems of society. She gains access to information that must be
brought to the people, information that could cost her her life.
 
Here’s the Official Trailer for the movie                                             
 
 
Written by Rody Vera and directed by Jade Castro, Juana C. is that rare
animal in contemporary cinema: an advocacy movie in the form of a sex comedy

BUM takes on a more defined look with its “My ATEEtude : I AM NOT TYPICAL” collection

 

BUM takes on a more defined look with its “My ATEEtude : I AM NOT TYPICAL” collection

LEGAZPI 37 52 X 20 18 FT BTS copy

Having a different kind of style and attractive colors make any individual looks different from other especially when your a star like Bea and Daniel. An ambassador of BUM aTEEtude which will help promote a truly Filipino taste and colors that is not very likely to be done on other brands.

After playing around with risky colors like neon brights and loud prints, local clothing brand BUM takes on a more subdued, but still equally exciting and defined, design approach for its back-to-school collection called “My ATEEtude : I Am Not Typical”.

According to Benny Reyes, the senior merchandiser and designer for BUM, loyal patrons can expect this new collection to still bear the brand's signature “rebel/emo” look. What they should watch out for are the new elements that would give BUM a distinct feel.

  garage ad 3   
Neon brights, for instance, would still be in this back-to-school collection, but they're now used only as “accents” to enhance I Am Not Typical's new focus: digital prints.
“Digital prints are all the rage now, they come in different forms. And this trend will continue throughout the rest of the year.”

MEG 2013 bea copy
BUM is also introducing pieces that have a camouflage design for a more rugged feel.   “We have camouflage jackets. We also have camouflage pants for our girls line.”
The brand is also continuing its line of colored chino pants, which were a hit in BUM’s previous “I Change the Rules” collection. He excitedly shares that the brand now has “woven polos with stripes and checks in dark colors,” which is a nod to BUM's grungy, dark side.
Denim will still be the focal fabric for most of the bottoms, but BUM will continue pushing the development by bringing in new fabrics and elements every now and then.
“We have chambray shorts, or those above-the-knee bermuda shorts for guys. They may be new to our target market, but already the early-adapters have bought them.”

As for I Am Not Typical collection’s girls line, BUM adds some feminine touch to its pieces. Flor Almosera, designer-merchandiser for BUM’s girls line, says that BUM is making use of “floral printed fabrics and patterns,” which the brand has never done before.
“We still have those splattered prints, both for the tops and bottoms, that have become part of BUM’s trademark,” she adds. “But now, we’re introducing tops with lace accents and neon trimmings. Our colors are still bright, but less intense than neon brights.”
Flor also shares that BUM is coming out with a jumpsuit and reversible pants for girls. “Two different colors on two different sides of the pants. So, girls now have the option of choosing which side to wear.”


BUM is available in leading department stores nationwide. For more information, visit www.bumequipment.com.ph or like them on Facebook at http//www.facebook.com/bumequip
