Celebrity moms and surprise guests, including Sige Moms Christine Bersola-Babao, Gladys Reyes and Dimples Romana, headlined the nationwide events. At Barangay Commonwealth in Quezon City, radio DJ Laila Chikadora also kept the crowd entertained with her witty jokes and led the fun bingo games where moms won bicycles, skateboards, inflatable swimming pools and other toys for their children. These prizes were meant to encourage moms to be Sige Moms who let their kids play and go on exciting adventures.

While the moms enjoyed their day off from doing the laundry, Breeze Laba Ladies and Laba Machines, sponsored by campaign partners Electrolux, LG, Whirlpool and White Westinghouse, took care of washing their clothes.

“We know how hardworking our mommies are, spending as much as three to four hours a day doing the laundry. Today, Breeze is taking care of washing their clothes so they can have some time for themselves and to have fun, as our way of thanking them and recognizing their admirable efforts,” said Mara Banson, Breeze brand manager.

“As part of the Circle of Sige Moms, our job is to encourage mommies to allow their kids to be kids, even if it means getting dirty or having stained clothes,” said Christine. “When we say yes to playing and going on adventures, we say yes to our children’s intellectual, emotional and physical growth.”

“My daughter Callie is very artsy and likes working with her hands. We love baking and often, we’d be covered in icing and food color of every hue,” said Sige Mom Dimples. “But I’m glad I allowed her to do that, because it’s very fulfilling when you see your child achieve great things because you allow them to do their own thing and pursue their passions.”

“Being a mom is a 24/7 job,” added Sige Mom Gladys. “But because we have a dependable partner in Breeze, doing the laundry becomes easier and effortless. We can spend less time on washing clothes and have more time for ourselves and our family.”

McDonald’s Philippines President & CEO Kenneth Yang accepts #ALSIceBucketChallenge

McDo Ice Bucket Challenge

McDonald’s President and CEO Kenneth Yang was challenged by Megaworld President Andrew Tan to do the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge yesterday. He gladly took on the task for a good cause, donating a certain amount for the ALS fund and matching it with a donation to Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC).

In the video,  McDonald’s Chief Happiness Officer Ronald poured the bucket of ice over Kenneth as he welcomed the day in quite an unexpected way. It’s refreshing (pun intended) to see high-ranking executives get involved personally to support worthy causes.

 

Andrew Tan of Megaworld takes the “ALS Ice Bucket Challenge”

Heeding the worldwide call to raise funds in the fight against ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis), or commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease, Megaworld chair Dr. Andrew L. Tan becomes the first Filipino tycoon to take part in the Ice Bucket Challenge phenomenon that aims to spread ALS awareness around the world.

Dr. Tan’s participation in the challenge was proactive and voluntary on his part.

“I support the important cause of the ALS Association to promote awareness about Lou Gehrig’s Disease that is a threat to humanity. That is why I’m here to take this Ice Bucket Challenge, and at the same time, I will make a donation to the movement,” he said on video recorded in his house on August 25.

As a tradition to the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, Dr. Tan nominates three personalities from the business community to do the same: Dr. Steven DeKrey, president of Asian Institute of Management; Mr. Manolito Tayag, country head of Accenture Philippines; and Kenneth Yang, president of Golden Arches Development Corporation (McDonald’s Philippines).

Dr. Tan is the chairman and CEO of Megaworld, one of the Philippines’ largest real estate developers and the country’s leader in business process outsourcing (BPO) office developments.

Andrew Tan’s Alliance Global Hotel

Andrew Tan-led conglomerate, Alliance Global Group, Inc. (AGI), bares plans to aggressively expand its hotel business in the Philippines in the next six years.

Speaking at the Philippines Property Awards 2014 in Makati City, Alliance Global Group chair Dr. Andrew L. Tan revealed that the group will have a total of 12,000 hotel rooms in its portfolio all over the country by 2020.

“By the year 2020, we envision our group to be the largest hotel developer in the Philippines, with a total portfolio of around 12,000 hotel rooms. These hotel rooms will be offered under 12 different local and global hotel brands. The global brands include Marriott, Hilton, Sheraton, Westin, Okura and Maxims,” Tan said.

Currently, the group has built 1,900 rooms in its existing hotels namely: Richmonde Hotel Ortigas; Eastwood Richmonde Hotel; Marriott Hotel, Maxims Hotel and Remington Hotel in Newport City; and Fairways and Bluewater in Boracay Newcoast.

The group is rolling out aggressive expansion plans to build more than 10,000 new hotel rooms in all of its developments in the next six years. All of these new hotels will be built in Megaworld townships across the country.

These include 2,000 rooms in Newport City; 2,800 rooms in Resorts World Bayshore City; 1,900 rooms in Boracay Newcoast; 2,700 rooms in The Mactan Newtown in Cebu; around 400 rooms in Iloilo Business Park; and more than 180 rooms in Twin Lakes, Tagaytay as well as in other parts of Metro Manila.

By 2020, the Megaworld group will complete around 8,600 rooms while Travellers International Hotel Group, Inc. will complete 3,400 rooms.

“Once completed, our 12,000 hotel rooms can accommodate up to an estimated 2-million visitors per year. It is one way we can help the government achieve its yearly tourist targets,” Tan added.

Currently, AGI holds interests in property development through Megaworld; integrated tourism development through Global-Estate Resorts, Inc.; Travellers International Hotel Group, Inc., which owns Resorts World Manila; food and beverage manufacturing and distribution through Emperador, Inc., which owns Emperador Distillers, Inc., the leading brandy manufacturer and distributor in the Philippines; and Golden Arches Development Corporation, which operates and franchises quick service restaurants under the McDonald’s brand.

Israel is More than A Start-Up Nation but also A Brain Nation

TMS

Israel is notably known as one of the global leaders in technology and innovation. But the country is also recognized as a vanguard when it comes to brain research. As Israeli President Shimon Peres expressed his vision…Israel is not only as the Startup Nation, but also as the Brain Nation”.

Israel has a well-developed infrastructure and a unique culture of nurturing innovation which certainly makes the country a brain nation. It heavily capitalizes on technology and science as a primary vehicle for economic growth. In fact, Israel invests between 4% and 5% of its GDP on R&D every year, which happens to be the highest rate in the world.

An example of this strong initiative is Brainsway™- an Israeli company specializing in advanced technology solutions for the treatment of a variety of brain disorders. Its flagship technology, Deep Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (DTMS) is a noninvasive treatment for depression, schizophrenia, and other neurological disorders. This distinctive technology targets magnetic field effecting deeper tissues in the brain cortex.

Brainsway™ DTMS has already been applied in thousands of cases globally including the United States and Europe.

The technology now makes way to the Philippines. Brainsway Philippines is holding the “Brainsway Lecture and Hands-On Demo: Dtms – The New Paradigm for Brain Disorder Treatment” on August 12 and 13, 2014 which will feature Mr. Shmuel Adler, Brainway’s Vice President for Business Development & Reimbursement.

Filipino Psychiatry and Neurology doctors are encouraged to attend the conference in order to take a glimpse on how Israel is well-positioned to assume a leadership role in the emerging neurotechnology industry.

Saucony Participates in Cobra Ironman 70.3 Philippines in Cebu Introduces racing flats Type A6 and Fastwitch 6

Fastwitch 6 - Men

Saucony, the award-winning performance brand worn by today’s elite runners, recently hit the Visayan shores with the introduction of its racing flats Type A6 and Fastwitch 6, a groundbreaking advancement for marathoners and multi-sport athletes everywhere, at the Cobra Ironman 70.3 Philippines held in Cebu.  The triathlon race is one of the biggest in Asia participated by thousands of triathletes from around the globe.

Saucony’s racing flats were showcased in the triathlon expo at the Shangri-la Mactan’s Marquee Hall.  The racing flats, along with Saucony’s range of award-winning shoes Omni 12, Triumph 11, Peregrine 4, and Kinvara 4 were well-received by thousands of triathletes and guests who flocked the booth during the 4-day exhibit.

Type A6 - Men

 “After the success of Saucony’s partnership with Cobra Ironman 70.3 Philippines last year, we’re very happy to be on board once again for this event to support the triathletes and our brand ambassadors,” says Precy Santos, marketing manager of Saucony. “Our brand has been gaining recognition in the Philippines over the past year and as more athletes demand for Saucony, we intend to support more events such as the Ironman 70.3 to establish ourselves further to both aspiring triathletes and elite athletes.”

Present at the event were Team Herbalife and Team TriMac—two of the top triathlon teams in the country which are being supported by Saucony. Triathletes from both teams wore the Type A6 and Fastwitch 6 Saucony racing flats for this race.

Prior to this year’s Cobra Ironman 70.3, Danny Balandra of Team Herbalife tested Saucony’s Type A6 in the recent Mayon 360 80km ultramarathon. “The additional cushion is softer and better for longer runs. It’s even lighter and toe-off is responsive,” says Balandra. “[Mayon 360 ultramarathon] was the longest run I did using a racing flat, the Type A6, and I did very well at that time with the time of 8 hours and 33 minutes, ranking 24th over 396 finishers,” he adds.

Saucony’s light and stable Fastwitch 6 is designed for the road warriors ready to take their race to the next level. Key features of the shoe include a FlexFilm upper for improved fit and flexibility without added weight. It also has water drainage ports in the midsole, allowing quick water discharge when the shoe becomes wet or submerged.

Saucony racing flats and the rest of Saucony’s award-winning shoe models and apparel are available at the Saucony concept store located at the 2nd flr of Glorietta 3 in Makati City and specialty retailers: Runnr in Bonifacio High Street and Trinoma, Toby’s Mall of Asia, Secondwind Ortigas, major SM Department Stores nationwide, and Robinsons Place Manila Department Store.

Saucony, the award-winning performance brand worn by today’s elite runners, recently hit the Visayan shores to support Team Herbalife and Team TriMac at the Cobra Ironman 70.3 Philippines held in Cebu last August 3, 2014.  The triathlon race is one of the biggest in Asia participated by thousands of triathletes from around the globe.

Team Herbalife and Team TriMac have top age groupers and up & coming triathletes among its ranks.  Several members of the team recently posted podium finishes in major races like the Xterra Off-Road Triathlon, Subic International Triathlon (SUBIT), and Unilab Active Health’s Tri United Series including top finishes in the team competition.

Prior to this year’s Cobra Ironman 70.3, Danny Balandra of Team Herbalife tested Saucony’s Type A6 in the recent Mayon 360 80km ultramarathon. “The additional cushion is softer and better for longer runs. It’s even lighter and toe-off is responsive.

(GERI). The acquisition brings Megaworld’s majority stake in GERI to 80.4% and increases the property giant’s total land bank to around 4,000 hectares.
