The homecoming party was an electrifying reunion for the champs, meeting the old and new teams who all share a great love for dance. Joining the dance floor were celebrities Claire Ruiz, Elisse Joson, and Jacob Benedicto, model Clara Pettersen, and fashion blogger Raiza Poquiz. The A Team, a Filipino dance crew that has won international competitions, was also introduced as the new Skechers ambassador. A-Team founder and head coach Lyka Arda, also an Skechers Streetdance Battle alumna, shares that “every year, we look forward to competing in the Skechers Streetdance Battle. It set the standard for the dance competitions that we have right now.”

Perfect for a night of good dancing, the Skechers Burst and the Skechers GO Flex took center stage as the latest Skechers lines of footwear. Party goers got an exclusive look of the newest Skechers Burst with its combo of athletic style and all-around comfort that match anybody’s upbeat energies.

Reminiscing a decade of passion and love for the dancefloor, Skechers proudly marks its legacy of celebrating pure talent and street style.

Ergo Introduces Snowsound Acoustic Technology by Caimi Brevetti

For the past 30 years, Ergo Office and Ergo Home have been providing “high performance architectural and interior solutions” in the Philippines and in the South East Asian region.

Ergo recently acquired exclusive partnership with Caimi Brevetti, a leading global manufacturer of design oriented furniture and accessories for office and contract furniture market. Philip Ng, CEO and President of Ergo shared, “the company is cognizant for breakthrough innovations in terms of "space-efficient furniture"- versatile, unique designs, convenient, environment-friendly furniture. And we continuously innovate and inspire.”

Ng reiterates, “Aligned with our ergonomics principle, having a peaceful, quiet, and relaxing environ is important. We have all experienced acoustic reverberation or echo in enclosed spaces, and it’s very annoying. How can you maximize your productivity and enjoy it at the same time if you are working in a noise-polluted environment? That will be very stressful.”

The idea behind SNOWSOUND Acoustic Panels is that of a comfortable environment while creating beauty in a given space.The innovative patented technology Snowsound by Caimi Brevetti is based on the use of panels composed of material with variable densities, which functions to achieve selective absorption at different frequencies to optimize the acoustics yet keeping a low thickness. Each density allows absorbing the sound in a different and balanced way, thus increasing its definition.

“Our primary market is commercial- offices and other large enclosed spaces. It could be a conference room, concert hall, a classroom, museum, call center, movie house, hotel, retail shops, or an office building. Actually, any place where there are sound or noise issues to solve or optimize.”

Snowsound claims that while there are low-end counterparts in the market, nothing can quite match its high-end sound absorbing performance, aesthetics, design and ease of use that Snowsound Acoustic Panels provide. 

Here are some of the reasons why:
  • Snowsound panels’ patented composition of 100% recyclable, 
  • variable density polyester significantly optimizes room acoustics by absorbing midrange and low-range frequencies while still reflecting some of the high-range frequencies. 
  • Surfaces of Snowsound Acoustic Panels are covered with durable, high-quality, bonded polyester, forming a single body without breaks. These panels are thin (1.5 inches), light weight (less than 6 lb.), decorative and fire resistant.

4 Affordable Kinds of Flooring for Your Next Project

One of the most common renovations that homeowners have done to their homes is replacing the flooring. Mostly, this is because of the foot-traffic of those living in the house. Regardless of why you need a new floor, there are many options that are cost-efficient which may revitalize any given room. In many cases, a professional contractor can have one of these new floors built within hours. 

A popular type of low-cost flooring is that of laminate. Instead of real hardwood floors being installed, laminate can give a proper illusion of the same elegance. Many brands even go through the trouble to create a textured surface of laminate to emulate wood grain and realistic imperfections. However, cleaning the floor after installation is much different in most cases. A lot of laminate materials require dry mopping to prevent damage. Submersing these planks can lead to the wood becoming warped.

Not all carpet and padding installations need to be expensive. As long as you're willing to settle for a shorter fiber and available colors, this flooring can be inexpensive to have installed. However, longer distances may require fusing lengths of carpet together. Odd angles within a room or hallway can also be troublesome when making sure the material stays taught. Loose carpet can easily be torn or separate from the walls if its not installed correctly.

Cork Planks
For those that are conscious about eco-friendliness, cork planks may be a good flooring for you. Cork is usually inexpensive while being made of recycled materials. It's a soft flooring that is durable and can sustain a great deal of punishment. Many homeowners find cork to be an attractive alternative to more expensive installations.

Tile Many people view peel-and-stick tile as a cheap alternative to a good floor. In reality, many of these brands come with 10-year guarantees and can sustain a great deal of wear-and-tear. This type of flooring works best if you have a contractor lay a flat and level baseboard before installation. This gives the tile more surface in which to stick. Installing a new floor doesn't have to take a lot of time or money. Many contractors can get started today to improve your home. Before you choose which cost-efficient method is right for, it may be better to speak with a contractor first. He or she might have ideas that are better which may fit your design motif with better precision.

This Chiropractor Near Makati, Manila Taught Me 5 Things About My Back and Health


Visiting a Chiropractor Across the Makati CBD Area

I accompanied my wife one Saturday when she visited this chiropractic clinic in Taguig, near Makati City, Metro Manila. I was very eager to join her because in the many years that we've been together, most of the time, she would wake up the moment I got up for work at around 5:30 in the morning. Very seldom would she be able to get back to sleep after I leave for the office.

The two nights after her chiropractic session with Dr. George Cromack together with other friends one Wednesday, she slept so soundly, like a baby and slept even after I left for work. This was not usual because I would always encourage her to go back to sleep after I say goodbye in the morning. Sometimes, when I text with her during the day, I would also encourage her to take time for a nap after lunch with our son. But, because of her action-oriented personality and inclination, she usually would not feel the need to rest unless she has finished the many things she juggles - online tasks, homeschooling, and keeping the home. She is a very productive lady that's why I call her my Proverbs 31 woman.

So, last Saturday, I went to visit Dr. Cromack's Manila Neck and Back Center located in Bonifacio Global City, right across Makati CBD and got to experience for myself the advantages of having sessions with a very experienced chiropractor. Dr. George Cromack has 33 years of experience in chiropractic medicine.

Dr. Cromack's chiropractic expertise taught me five things about my back and my overall health. 

1. The muscles on either sides of the spine should be balanced. 

One of the first things that Dr. Cromack did was scan my back using the Static EMG Scanner.

It is a device used to detect or read electrical activity (action potential) in order to measure paraspinal tension. According to an article on Static and Dynamic Surface Electromyography(sEMG),

The electric current pattern is a critical component in how your body functions. The muscles on either side of your spine should be balanced: if they are not working equally well, the body is forced to compensate, which takes energy. This imbalance can monitored by sEMG technology. Alterations in electrical activity in the paraspinal muscles can shed light on the muscular changes linked to vertebral subluxations. As such, chiropractors can use sEMG to establish a baseline for paraspinal electrical activity. 

So, according to the sEMG scan, the upper and lower portions of my back show huge amounts of variation in surface electricity from normal and have subluxations (partial dislocation).

2. Spinal decay or subluxation degeneration naturally happens with age.

#LessGuiltFoodTrip with Metamucil

Did you know that the Philippine Food and Nutrition Research Institute recommends Filipino adults to consume 20 to 25 grams of dietary fiber daily? Sadly, inasmuch as we mean to source fiber from our daily diet, most of the time, it is not enough. Incidentally, the World's #1 selling fiber supplement has recently made a comeback. Metamucil is made from 100% natural psyllium fiber and is now available locally.

What is Psyllium? 

Psyllium is an excellent source of fiber from the husk of the seeds of Plantago Ovata. Some of the benefits of Psyllium are: Promote good digestive health, lower cholesterol, maintain healthy blood sugar levels and makes the body feel less hungry in between meals.

The Online Board Game in the Philippines

Growing up, I have had many experiences playing with board games. A few that I played with were, Othello, Chess, Scrabble, Snakes and Ladders, Millionaire’s Game and Monopoly. One of my favorites is a locally made strategy board game known as the Game of the Generals.

Now, a new online board game has hit the Philippines. It is a sort of a Millionaire’s Game or Monopoly type of game but with some twists. Just Roll It is the modern day online board game. It runs on Windows OS and is free to download and install.

Just Roll It's EULA and T&C page

What the registration page looks like

Once you’ve installed the software on your PC, the next step is to accept the EULA (end users license agreement) and the Terms & Conditions. I created my account “Master Sun Tzu”, named after the war strategist. You can see my dashboard below.

Midea: Kitchen Appliances Extraodinaire #livedifferentchoosedifferent


Midea Kitchen Appliances Launched

The world class brand Midea launched its kitchen appliances and they are out of the ordinary. Last Wednesday, Midea introduced to the market their microwave ovens, induction cookers, digital multi-cookers and electric kettles that boast of energy efficiency, solid performance and compact designs, and most of all, they are affordable and worth their price.

Midea's kitchen appliances are put to use by Chef Rob Pengson


Midea Microwave Oven

According to studies about microwave ovens, the use of microwave ovens in the Philippines is very low. The reason is because of the common misconception that a microwave oven uses up a lot of electricity. Extraordinarily, the Midea Microwave Oven uses power efficiently that you only spend P1 in electricity per three-minute cooking time. It also promises a better retention of nutrients because of the short cooking time.


Midea Digital Multi/Rice Cooker

Digital rice cookers have developed through the years into multi-cookers where users can cook a number of dishes in. Midea’s Digital Multi-Cookers are equipped with Thermal Circulation Technology, which ensures even heating in the cooking pot for perfectly cooked rice. In case you add too much water, its smart fuzzy logic control automatically adjusts the temperature and cooking time of rice. The honeycomb texture of the pot also allows it to retain heat efficiently, ensuring your rice is cooked evenly and thoroughly - no more "tutong".

These digital multi-cookers come with a number of presets that take the guesswork out of cooking. Just press a button, and you get perfectly cooked dishes in a matter of minutes. Aside from cooking rice, you can also use it to cook congee and stews, steam seafood, rice cakes and vegetables, make soup, and boil eggs.

Midea’s Multi-Cookers come in two models. One model can even double as a pressure cooker. With it, you can cook the toughest cuts of meat until they are tender in a short time. Midea’s Multi-Cooker/Pressure Cooker have a 10-Dimensional Protection System and self-locking lid with auto/manual release function that ensure safety during cooking.


Midea Induction Cooker

Midea’s Induction Cooker is a space-saving alternative to a gas range. Its slim design and sturdy construction make it a fitting addition to any kitchen. An induction cooker is more economical than gas range, and uses 37% less power than an electric stove. It cooks 40 percent quicker than an electric stove due to dual-coil technology that makes it heat up faster. It is safe to use around children because of its flameless heating and an auto shut-off feature.


Midea Electric Kettle

Midea’s Electric Kettle is one of the safest kettles in the market. It has a number of built-in features that make boiling water not only economical, but also safe. In just three minutes, Midea’s Electric Kettle can boil water. It also has lower power consumption than other electric kettles. What makes the Midea Electric Kettle stand out among others is its double wall technology that prevents its exterior from heating (it's safe touch even after boiling), as well as keeping boiled water warm for a longer time. With its patented UK Strix control that ensures against dry boiling and protection from overheating, you and your family are safe from electric shocks, injuries or fire. It also has integrated cord storage for safety and convenience. When not in use, you can easily wind the cord under the kettle to keep it away from accidents.

True to their commitment of enriching the different lifestyles of people, Midea lets you experience the same quality of innovative appliances but at a reasonable price. Indeed, #livedifferentchoosedifferent. 

About Midea 

Midea is one of the world's largest producers of consumer appliances. Established in 1968, Midea has consistently strived to make the lives of its consumers easier with their line of innovative products. On 2014, Midea Global partnered with Concepcion Industrial Corporation to bring the brand closer to Filipinos. For more information on Midea, you can call +632-850-9888 or midea.com.ph.

You have MediCard – Why worry?: 7 Reasons why Medicard is one of the strongest HMOs in the Philippines

I and my wife have been a freelancers for quite some time and honestly, we have earned more compared to working at full-time jobs. But recently, we both agreed that one of the things we miss out on is the benefits of having a health card. Having one provides more security for me and my wife especially because health issues are always unpredictable.

Three years ago, my wife and I planned a trip to Boracay for my birthday and, unexpectedly, my son got sick and became hospitalized. We had to cancel our trip. We had no choice because, bottom line, family and their health comes first. Its implications - we were not able to use the plane fare to Boracay and the accommodation arrangements for the trip. Plus, we had to pay the hospital bills.

Back then, we could have really used some health care service like MediCard. If we didn't have any second thoughts we would have availed of it back then, especially for our son.

I know that there are many health care service providers available but among them, Medicard is one of the strongest in the industry.

7 Reasons why Medicard is one of the strongest HMOs in the Philippines:

Transcript of Lee Hsien Loong's Address | Lee Kuan Yew Passes Away

Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong addressed the nation of Singapore this morning at 8am, following the passing of Mr Lee Kuan Yew, the founding Prime Minister of Singapore. Here is the English transcript of PM Lee's address. The transcript is based on this video of his address in Malay, Chinese in English.

Transcript of Lee Hsien Loong's Address

"The first of our founding fathers is no more. He inspired us, gave us courage, kept us together and brought us here. He fought for our independence, built our nation where there was none and made us proud to be Singaporeans. We won’t see another man like him. To many Singaporeans, and, indeed, others, too, Lee Kuan Yew was Singapore.

As Prime Minister he pushed us hard, to achieve what had seemed to be impossible. After he stepped down, he guided his successors with wisdom and tact. In old age, he continued to keep a watchful eye on Singapore. Singapore was his abiding passion. He gave of himself in full measure to Singapore. As he himself put it towards the end of his life,
