The renowned entertainment district, known for hosting most of the country’s biggest concerts and events has now partnered with ABS-CBN Sagip Pelikula to introduce a one-of-a-kind film night– Spotlight Movie Box, a movie experience for avid fans of Philippine cinema.

Power Mac Center Spotlight, is an intimate and flexible performance venue designed to offer one-of-a-kind experience for audiences.

“We’ve rounded up these all-time romantic films for a one-off movie screening inside the Power Mac Center Spotlight—a venue known mostly for hosting theater performances, and have now converted into a cinema house just for the occasion,” explains Mel Ignacio, Assistant Vice President of Ayala Land “Our intent is to show the versatility and possibilities that our venue could offer.”

Event Alert: How to Setup A Food Distribution Business

I remembered during the first years that hubby and I are living together, we were already planning of what business we would start up. My in-laws are very much into the entrepreneurship world. When I met their son they have a few stalls here at the Pasay Public Market. Some stalls sold fruits, others are shoes and slippers and anything in season starting from Valentines Day until the Christmas Season. 🙂

I am thankful to them for teaching me the basics in handling a business. They would give us a small capital to run our own stall during the peak seasons like All Souls Day, Christmas and New Year! It was quite a change a change in lifestyle so I say you have to hands-on 24/7. As a couple we have to take turns in manning the store and taking care of our daughter.

Running your own business is never easy there will be times that you lose some just because of different factors. With that we tend to lose hope and stop na lang before we even lose more. Now, after years of doing trial and error with different businesses, I came to a conclusion that here in our country one of the best business to put up is — FOOD!

Why? Because Pinoys are food lovers! We enjoy munching and eating atleast 4-5 times a day, breakfast, AM snack, lunch, PM snack and dinner. Pinoys are also in the look-out for new types of food, may it be Korean, Japanese or Mexican foods. In today’s generation, there are a lot of food parks emerging almost in every city in the Metro. An advantage for food biz owners to be known and be discovered because believe me or not Pinoys are “gaya-gaya” or just plain “food adventurers”. They tend to be curious to try out new food hubs when they saw their friends trying it out. 🙂

That is why GLOBE MyBusiness and Manila Workshops would like to give you the second installation to our Food Entrepreneurship Workshops – How to Setup a Food Distribution Business.

Food Photography Workshop (Using your mobile phone)

Globe MyBusiness in partnership with Manila Workshops brings you our very first Food Photography Workshop.

If you run a restaurant, cafe or small food stall, you know how important your menu is. It is the first introduction to your food that a customer gets and having great pictures can make a big difference. In a city full of tourists not all of whom speak our language, how do you attract them into your food establishment with ease? Photos can be understood by everyone. Most people like to see a photo of their food before they order so they know exactly what they are getting.

Nowadays where social media plays a big role in showing people what you offer, learning how to take nice photos using your mobile phones can be a great help to your food business.

8 shocking facts about germs we bet you didn’t know about

Last month, I brought my son to his Pedia for a check-up. I got worried because he has cough & colds for 3 weeks already. I believe that it was viral infection so I started to double-up his intake of fruits but nothing changed.

His pedia told me that his coughs & colds were caused by viral infection. I might have exposed him to too much germs and pollution. This also triggered his asthma. Poor little boy now is under medication for three months. I thought I maybe unaware of where else we acquire bad germs.

Wherever you go, bacteria abounds. Many of these bacteria are able to cause malodour, skin infection and diseases such as diarrhea, cough, colds and the like.

Worse, these bacteria are increasingly hardier, dirtier, and can multiply faster than you expect, therefore putting your family members at risk.

Consider these troubling facts about bacteria:

1. The number of bacteria that live in and on us outnumber our own human cells by ten to one.
safeguard1

2. Common cold, flu and stomach viruses can live on the fingertips for hours and can survive on the surfaces of objects for days.
safeguard2

3. 80% of all infections, from the common cold and flu to venereal disease and Ebola fever, are transmitted by people touching one another or touching objects that others have touched.
safeguard3

4. A shopping cart can contain more fecal E. Coli than a supermarket toilet.
safeguard4

5. One study found that in schools, water fountain buttons, pencil sharpeners, keyboards and faucet handles were the most contaminated objects with viruses.
safeguard5

6. Phones have been found to have up to 4200 bacteria from fecal contamination. Safe drinking water should have less than 1 bacteria per 100ml.safeguard6

7. In an environment as humid as a bathroom, a single bacterial cell can multiply into one billion cells overnight.
safeguard7

8. When someone comes to work sick, about half of the commonly touched surfaces in the office will become infected with the virus by lunchtime.
safeguard8

In light of this disturbing data, it is imperative for all members of the household, especially children, to use the right kind of soap that can kill these germs effectively and prevent their regrowth.
Unfortunately, not all soaps are created equal. Experts have demonstrated that most soaps do not protect their family from modern day germ threats. Protection from germ threats begin with proper handwashing and bathing using an effective antibacterial soap like Safeguard.

safeguard9

Safeguard with Germshield+ technology can fight a broad spectrum of gram positive and gram-negative bacteria and fungi, preventing more types of sickness, malodour, and skin infection. Moreover, Germshield+ technology inhibits the regrowth of these bacteria and fungi for up to 24 hours, thereby providing optimal protection.

For over 50 years in the Philippines, Safeguard has been recommended by the leading health experts for germ protection for the entire family. Encouraging proper hygiene, frequent handwashing, and the use the Safeguard will make your job as protector of the family easier and more effective.

Our family always uses SAFEGUARD, I thought my little boy is too young to use safeguard for his hands and body. But I am wrong, now, he uses Safeguard Soap and Safeguard Body Wash. He loves the one in Honey Smash Scent. 🙂 Now I am confident he is 99.9% Germ Protected! 😉
