Our Cartoon Network Toon Machine 2015 Experience

When my son first saw Cartoon Network's commercial about their Toon Machine event, he was so excited and rushed right at me telling me all about it. It was originally scheduled at December 5 and 6, but thankfully it was moved to December 22 and 23 at the Mall of Asia because I'm very free to take him at that time.

(PR) Beauty Lane Brings Milan’s Hair Master in the Philippines




Italy’s most sought after master educator in hair and coloring, Alessandro Cavazzini is in the Philippines to conduct a series of trainings for local hair stylists and colorists, courtesy of Elgon Professional Hair Color.
The Milan-based brand is exclusively distributed in the country by Beauty Lane Philippines, Incorporated, headed by its President and CEO, Dina de Villa-Tobojka. Through the trainings, local salon specialists will learn the ever-evolving science and art of hair color, get a deeper insight into the brand, Elgon, and learn how to maximize its products.“The trainings will be more on using Elgon products in new ways. It’s something we can pass on to our customers here because stylists are constantly looking for something new,” Tobojka said.

Just recently, Tobojka, along with Beauty Lane Philippines, Inc. General Manager Rebecca Lopez and Jude Hipolito and Rose Velasco of JURO Salon Exclusif, the brand’s Philippine ambassadors had recently undergone the same training under Cavazzini in Milan.

“Whatever we learned, we will show in these demonstrations. Alessandro is here to train our educators, and let them experience what have experienced in Milan. Apart from this, we’re also planning to conduct look-and-learn seminars in Cebu and Davao which will be done by Jude and Rose as Elgon ambassadors,” Lopez said.



Elgon is one of the most preferred brands of hair color solutions in Italy as it is well known for its reputation as leaders and experts of innovation when it comes to hair color.

In its 45 years in business, Elgon was able to create products that can serve and treat different needs of various salon owners and goers. It’s a brand that guarantees quality, and is dedicated in putting the health and safety of its customers first, before anything else.



“A testament to their dedication towards health and safety is their Elgon Color Remover, because you can remove color safely, without bleach. Elgon is a brand that is very conscious about health and safety, absolutely, it’s one of the things I absolutely loved about them. It’s just not, sell, sell, sell. It’s selling with a heart. Selling with concern. Selling with a soul. You can see what the company stands for just by looking at the product line. Elgon’s products have characteristics directed to health, safety, and the environment as well, which says a lot about the company.”



To prove its dedication and concern towards its customers, Elgon has a solution for people who want a certain look, but don’t have all day to spend in a salon to achieve it. “Salons don’t have to turn-down customers who are in a hurry. There are people who come to salons and say, ‘I only have thirty minutes, can you dye my gray hair?’” Lopez said. “Actually, if you answer a salon asking for that kind of service and tell them you only have ten minutes, the stylists will probably laugh at you. With Elgon’s 10 Minute Color, time won’t be an issue. Not only will you be able to make a hurrying customer satisfied, but you can also service more customers in less time. This significantly increases your salon’s performance.” Tobojka said.



Now, a product like this has to come at a high price, right? The good news is it doesn’t! It’s actually cheaper compared to the Philippine’s current leading brand of hair color. To many salon owners, Elgon products are competitively priced considering that it is better performing compared to many brands out in the market.Businesswise, all these characteristics in Elgon products can definitely help boost the productivity of salons.

Beauty Lane Philippines, Incorporated, the premier salon and beauty solutions provider in the country, is the exclusive Philippine distributor of Elgon Professional Hair Color. The company is also known for its success in bringing world-renowned brands of salon and beauty products in the country, including Brazilian Blowout, China Glaze, Gigi Wax, and Ardell, to name a few.

10 Kids’ Bedroom Designs That Grown Ups Love, Too

For all the home decor aficionados out there, there’s nothing quite like styling the perfect room for your children. However, it can be tough to create a space that you love as much as your kids (unless you’re as excited about Disney and Minecraft as they are, in which case perhaps this article isn’t for you). At Modernize, we’re here to tell you that there are plenty of kids’ bedroom design collaborations you will really appreciate in your home. Here are 10 of our favorites.

One word...Ikea
Who hasn’t wasted a day (or a hundred) getting lost in the affordable home haven that is Ikea? Once you become a parent, a whole new side of this Scandinavian giant opens up to you. Whether you’re designing on a budget or just love the clean lines and styles Ikea has to offer, you can easily kit out your kids’ bedrooms with adaptable, accessible furniture and accessories.

via Modernize

Just another room
If you want to keep your home’s design style consistent throughout, choose classic furniture and accessories to match the rest of your house in your kid’s room. This works especially well in nurseries, while you still have a choice on the decorating front.
via Modernize

Eclectic and original
Mix and match prints, fabrics, and patterns throughout your kid’s room for a unique style that definitely won’t be replicated in your children’s friends’ houses (though their parents will surely be jealous of your eclectic tastes).

via Modernize

Artistic license
Nothing about this bedroom decor is boring, and that’s a good thing. Choose bold modern art prints and handmade toys and cushions to make your kid’s room stand out from all the Disney characters out there.


via Modernize

Monochrome
If you want your children’s bedroom to be bang on trend, go with a monochrome color palette. The best part about this kind of room decor? You will never have a problem with clashing colors!

via Modernize

Hipster
Every hipster knows that a room isn’t complete without a mounted animal, cross stitched banner, and random arrows and crosses. Up your own hipster profile with this super cute and trendy design.

via Modernize

Playful
A bedroom is about so much more than sleep, especially for kids. Give them what they really want with a loft style bed that resembles a treehouse (climbing frame optional).


via Modernize

Crayola inspired
Nothing says kids’ design like bold, bright colors. Mix and match your favorites to create a whimsical, one of a kind room that everyone will love (except for the monochrome fans, perhaps).

via Modernize

Minimalist
Less is definitely more when it comes to the number of toys you’ll need to tidy in this room. Choose a few statement pieces to make up for the lack of things and give your minimalist kid’s room a little extra wow factor.

via Modernize

Traditional
There’s absolutely nothing wrong with sticking to the basics of children’s bedroom design. High-quality fabrics, wooden frames, and clean lines make a room like this feel like so much more than a basic bedroom.

100 Christmas Wishes at Glorietta – Fulfilled!


Christmas is the time of giving back and spreading the love and I am happy to have witnessed such a miracle this afternoon at the culmination of "100 Christmas Wishes at Glorietta" event.  The project aims to fulfill all 100 wishes of unprivileged children from different charities and organizations through the generous hearts of sponsors.

Sponsors 


The event started with a prayer and the children were given food... 


drinks....


and ice cream!


Children were also given simple activity sheets, pencils, and crayons each so they can get busy during idle time. 


As the program progressed, the audience were entertained by these wonderful presenters: 

A very nice musical performance from 2KK Scholars

A lovely song from FFA Scholars
A lovely performance by Ms. Janina Chan 

Children were invited at the stage to sing/dance along with the host, Kevin. 
The "100 Christmas Wishes at Glorietta" originally aimed to fulfill all 100 wishes of  unprivileged children, but the number didn't stop there. The project was able to fulfill 260 wishes! Amazing! ^_^

At the end of the program, all of the kids opened their gifts and were at awe of what they received:

He got a pair of rubber shoes!
She got a Barbie!
That smile :) 
Yes there were kids who received bikes! ^_^
The event was blessed and officially ended with a prayer. 



The event may have ended, but my wish for you, kids, is to stay in school and let your dreams come true. You are this country's future and I sincerely wish that you continue to have faith and always pray when you have troubles. God bless each and every one of you!

I would like to thank  Ms. Em Sulit for inviting me to this event. She was super busy, but she's still able to squeeze her time to assist us. 
I have met one of the well-known bloggers of our time , Ms. Lhyzie Bongon.
*I used the adjective, infamous, before because it was the first thing that came to mind as I was writing this and my intent was to use it as well-known, legendary, etc. for Ms. Lhyzie. I failed to recognize it as a negative word according to some readers so I sincerely apologize most especially to Ms. Lhyzie for any misunderstanding. I have nothing but respect and good intent for her. Thank goodness Ms. Lhyzie has sent me a msg to clear things out. I was totally clueless about it until she sent me a message. Well, I just hope that there's no harm done. Idol ko pa naman si Ms. Lhyzie.

Nice to meet you again, Ms. Nhessie.

Overall, it was an extraordinary event. I have never felt the essence of Christmas until I saw the genuine smiles of those children and the selfless efforts of the volunteers who simply wants to help out. I really hoped that the sponsors responsible for making the kids' wishes come true were present at the event because they could have witnessed the overwhelming happiness they have given these kids. 

For those who wish to do volunteer work for your company, school, or just for yourself, you may visit www.ivolunteer.com.ph where you may see their calendar of activities that needs volunteers.

Heads up! Gary V on Novuhair: Putting Energy Into Prevention (PR)



​Nothing describes Gary Valenciano quite like his moniker “Mr. Pure Energy,” He is the very image of youthful vibrance, whether onstage or not. That’s why it shouldn’t come as a surprise that he values the way he looks the same way that he values the core of who he is: a prayerful, faithful husband, dependable father, and an outstanding entertainer.

 ​Part of what makes Gary stay young looking is his head of hair. What many people don’t know is that, like all other men his age, Gary once worried about hair thinning and hair loss. That’s why, at the first signs of the problem, Gary sought to find ways to prevent it from becoming worse.

 


 

​“I first noticed the hair loss in the shower, after I toweled my hair dry. Then one day, my team of hairstylists noticed that my hair was thinning, too. That’s when they told me to look for the product that Fanny Serrano was using, a product called NOVUHAIR,” remarked Gary on his journey to regaining control over his hair loss.

​​NOVUHAIR is a topical scalp lotion that is a unique combination of 14 different natural ingredients and essential oils for a healthier hair and scalp. One of the factors of hair loss, according to studies, is stress, something that Gary experiences on almost a daily basis. Other factors include hereditary disorders, a persistent illness, major surgery, hormonal problems, childbirth & delivery, medications, infections, pollutants, and even excessive exposure to sunlight. And contrary to popular belief, hair loss is as much a problem for women as it is for men. In many cases, hair loss may be prevented or alleviated through early detection. In the case of Gary, his decision to try NOVUHAIR to prevent his
symptoms from worsening made a big difference, and within a few months, he saw remarkable results.

​​Gary shares his experience with NOVUHAIR as he tells the story of their family hair history: “Hair loss runs in our family, too, even if it sometimes skips a generation. My brother and grandfather both lost their hair, but my dad still has a full head of hair at 87. I just wanted to make sure I take control of my symptoms. Now, I use NOVUHAIR everyday, and I’ve noticed that I don’t shed as much hair as I did before, especially after toweling my hair dry. And my hairstylists noticed it, too. I love using NOVUHAIR because it has this minty, cool effect that makes me feel like my hair is always clean and fresh.”

 ​“In less than a month and half, I already saw results even if I was told to wait three to four months before I can see a difference. The effects on me were much faster. There were fewer strands on my white towel, which basically was within the normal boundaries of hair loss for an average person. Before using NOVUHAIR, I used to shed more.” This is due to the fact that NOVUHAIR penetrates deep to help rejuvenate, nourish, & maintain moisture in the scalp and hair. By improving the blood circulation in the scalp, NOVUHAIR helps stimulate hair growth and aid in preventing further, excessive hair fall, while also improving the overall appearance of the hair.

 ​“I never endorse a product that I did not experience first. I have to make sure it is really effective. With Novuhair, I can say that it has really contributed to my peace of mind and overall well-being. And, heads up, as Novuhair is now part of my daily routine, which includes prayer, diet, and medication.

The Big Difference of Big Brain Instructional Design


The corporate world is challenging place where competitions never cease. With this in mind, businesses or corporations ensure employees productivity and efficiency in tip top shape by provision of traditional training or live training. I used to work in a real estate company many years ago as a contractual employee and I was able to observe first hand of the live trainings provided by the company for its employees to educate them with the new enterprise application software being used for all departments. It was simply like being in a classroom where a trainer teaches and the employees listen and ask questions.

As our technologies continue to progress, live training has also evolved to eLearning where employees can simply log on to their computers, study, interact and ask questions with their trainer regarding their subject matter through video conference. A lot of companies nowadays prefer this method simply because it saves training costs and there’s simply a wider acceptance of web-based training due to the convenience it brings to the company’s employees. 

Although eLearning has its benefits that companies yearn for, not all companies wanted to absorb this type of training. Some would still prefer live training for its social interaction between trainer and employees that eLearning could never provide. Some employees would also prefer live training because they are already comfortable with that kind of training method where they can learn more efficiently.

So for companies looking for training firms to train their employees, which training method would they prefer? Should they hire two firms that would offer each training method? Absolutely not! There is an easy solution for this kind of problem and the answer is Big Brain Instructional Design!
Big Brain Instructional Design Philippines is a business established to help other businesses with their online and live training needs. It aims to provide quality and affordable outsourced service to make businesses reach their goals in employee or customer training needs. 

What sets them apart from the others?

Simple. They are able to combine elearning with live training! But, in most cases, the two services can be segregated according to the company’s needs. Big Brain Instructional Design is also the first in the country to combine eLearning and live training commonly known as corporate blended learning or simply blended learning.  

One word to describe blended learning for corporate training is flexibility. In this modern age, employees are very crucial with their schedules and blended learning can help them with that. Blended learning allows employees to have complete control over how, when, and where the client or company will want to train their employees, in order to help them develop their skill sets and thus enhance their work performance and productivity levels.

So whether it be live training, eLearning, or blended learning, Big Brain Instruction Design Philippines can help you decide what is best for your company’s needs and they can provide it for you at reasonable costs. That is what sets Big Brain Instruction Design apart from all the rest.
