Domex Powers Up Unilever’s Supportfor this year’s Brigada Eskwela


School is finally back in session as the Department of Education has declared August 22 as the first day of classes. While blended learning is still the mandate, schools have kicked-off their preparations for face to face classes through Brigada Eskwela, inspiring community-wide effort and collaboration to prepare the schools in time for resumption of classes.
Brigada Eskwela 2022 held its national kick-off last August 1 at the Imus Pilot Elementary School, where Vice President and DepEd Secretary Sara Duterte shared that “the collaboration between the parents, the teachers, local governments, and the entire community on Brigada Eskwela opens a deeper and meaningful collaboration even until after the school year closes”.
With the theme “Tugon sa Hamon ng Ligtas na Balik-Aral”, this year’s Brigada Eskwela focuses on the collective effort to create a safe learning environment for the students, teachers and school community while ensuring the delivery of quality education.
Answering this call to support our public schools and create a safe return to face to face classes, Unilever Philippines has partnered with the Department of Education to help provide access to clean school toilets and to promote proper hygiene in the community. Powering this effort from Unilever Philippines is Domex: a brand of disinfectants proven to kill 99.9% of germs while helping remove visible stains and eliminate odors (based on lab tests against representative germs).

For Brigada Eskwela 2022, Unilever Philippines successfully provided over Php 300,000 worth of Domex products to more than 40 schools nationwide, along with deploying cleaning tools and dedicated Domex clean-up teams to 7 partner schools across Metro Manila. The partner schools include Batasan Hills National High School, Quezon City Science High School, Comembo Elementary School, Palanan Elementary School, Santolan Elementary School, Santolan High School, and Gat Andres Bonifacio Elementary School.

Domex Brand Manager Regina Ocampo further explains, “As a brand, we believe access to clean and safe toilets should be a right, not a privilege, and that clean, safe toilets contribute to better learning and ultimately, better futures for our students. This commitment is why Brigada Eskwela is only the start of an exciting new partnership with DepEd.”
Ocampo shares that later this year, Domex and DepEd will be launching the Domex Eskwelang Unstoppable Awards, a program built with implementing partner Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) that empowers and distinguishes outstanding school division offices and schools in implementing DepEd’s Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene in Schools (WinS) program. She adds, “Essentially, it recognizes the commitment and effort of schools and school divisions in providing clean toilets for the students.”
And to further promote public health and environmental hygiene, Domex has also extended product provision to various local institutions. Philippine Red Cross vaccination hubs and laboratories, and local hospitals received their share of Domex disinfectants as part of the goal to curb rising cases of COVID-19.

CEBU HOSTS FIRST REAL ESTATE CONFAB


Over 700 participants mostly composed PRC-registered salespersons nationwide will convene in Cebu City for the first ever Real Estate Salespersons Congress on Thursday, Aug. 25, 2022.  The congress, initiated by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC)- registered Accredited Real Estate Salespersons in the Philippines (ACRES Philippines), will gather industry practitioners in the field of real estate selling to formally introduce ACRES Philippines and its Vision and Mission; recognize its interim officers nationwide; charter members and raise awareness and tackle current concerns in real estate selling.   ACRES is the country’s first and largest organization of accredited real estate salespersons. Founded in 2021, it supports the endeavors of salespersons in furthering their learnings, ethical standards, protection of their rights to free and fair practice, upliftment of their well-being, and due representation and inclusion on matters of their trade and prosperity.   At present the association has already set up nationwide chapters with interim officers in Metro Manila, Makati, Mandaluyong, Camarines Sur, Cavite, Bicol, Sorsogon, Legaspi, Pampanga, Palawan, Tacloban, Ormoc, Bohol, Dumaguete, Bacolod, Kabankalan, Iloilo, Roxas, Aklan, Calbayog, Samar, Leyte, Cebu, Lapu-Lapu, Northern Cebu, Southern Cebu, Talisay, Mandaue, Catbalogan, Davao, General Santos, Caraga, Cagayan de Oro, Bukidnon, Surigao, Ozamis, Dipolog, Pagadian, Digos, Iligan and Gingoog.  These interim officers will take oath during the congress.  Cebu was picked as the host for this year’s Congress to showcase the city’s progressive real estate industry whose vibrance could only be kept and achieved by proactive industry practitioners, including real estate salespersons.     According to Anthony Gerard Leuterio, president of A Better Real Estate Philippines (ABREP), the advisory group of ACRES, the formation of ACRES came timely as the real estate sector experiences a rebound from the economic stresses brought about by Covid-19 pandemic.   He said unifying all the salespersons involved in real estate will further advance the country’s real estate sector and make it one of the strongest economic pillars amid the headwinds.  “Since real estate is a selling business, we also need to get the salespersons onboard and actively involved them in advancing the sector alongside the brokers,” he said.   Leuterio stressed that since real estate salespersons are significant contributors in the continued expansion of the sector, they must be well represented.   “These practitioners need to have a voice too, especially when policies and laws are crafted. We need to include them so we could really a ‘Better Real Estate’,” he said.  Real estate salespersons comprise the biggest number of professionals in the real estate service.   Moreover, ACRES seeks to work harmoniously and collaboratively with the professionals in the real estate service, regulatory agencies, real estate organizations, property companies, policy makers and advocacy groups.   Leuterio said the association is keen to work with the Department of Human Settlements and Urban Development (DHSUD) so it can participate on campaigns against illegal salespersons and illegal developers.   The group also wants to work with the Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) to promote accreditation to all salespersons involved in real estate selling activities.

Keeping Laundered Clothes In During the Ghost Month

The Ghost Festival, also known as the Zhongyuan Festival in Taoism and Yulanpen Festival in Buddhism, is a traditional Taoist and Buddhist festival held in certain East Asian countries. According to the Chinese calendar, the Ghost Festival is on the 15th night of the seventh month. I read this in Wikipedia. 

I am a Buddhist but I never practiced this in the month of August. So when my sister told me about taking all our clothes hanging at our balcony, and  put them inside so ghosts won't use them accidentally, I was really in  question of the matter that I had to do research about it. Turns out that it is indeed practiced in some parts of Asia, and ghost month is quite interesting, really. Others would even leave food outside their homes for the ghosts, and special food which are favourites of their dearly departed,  in case their ghosts would drop by. 

Since the Philippines doesn't have so many Buddhists or Taoists, I have  not heard of this practice, only when I came here that we hear about these things, even if I am a Buddhist, simply because SGI Buddhism didn't really focus on these traditions.

So, yeah, we have kept our laundered clothes in, and I don't do laundry at night so I won't have to hang them outside to dry.

Rex Education and PEAC Sponsor Future Teachers In ‘Edukampyon Iskolar Para Sa Kinabukasan’ Scholarship Program


This coming school year, 14 young and promising students will be pursuing teacher education and taking up the challenge to rekindle our aspiration of bettering lives through education.
Rex Education and the Private Education Assistance Committee (PEAC) are sending 14 scholars to Centers of Excellence by the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) under the PEAC–REX Edukampyon Iskolar Para Sa Kinabukasan Scholarship Program, an initiative that hopes to strengthen the quality of teachers in the country by seeking out and encouraging students to take teacher education programs in Mathematics and Sciences.
“Teaching is such a noble career—it is the profession that creates all other professions. But in reality, with a lot of career options to choose from, Education is not always the top-of-mind choice of students. Great teachers inspire great students. This is why we want to encourage the best and the brightest to work with us, commit to the profession, and start creating a ripple effect as we enhance teachers’ quality today,” said Don Timothy Buhain, chief executive officer of Rex Education.
Teachers are some of the most impactful champions of education—Edukampyons—since they are the closest to the students and can directly impact their education. The scholarship program, launched in October 2021, rings true to REX’s Edukampyon advocacy that aims to champion, strengthen, and advance teacher education.
The students who will receive scholarship grants and pursue their specialization in the Sciences from Ateneo De Naga are the following: Lellian Joy L. Alegre, Leschell Mae L. Llagas, Jyla Mir P. Dangca, April Mariella B. Nieves, Maia Niña T. Enimedez, Sheila May B. Ceguerra, Denise Angela P. Rebueno, Kazzandra Jhean R. Alvarez, and Ma. Bernadette Jane S. Aguay.
The students who will pursue their specialization in Mathematics from Ateneo De Naga are Florence M. Pangilinan and Jassi Mary E. Sayson.
Three students will also pursue specializations in Mathematics at Capitol University: Jenika Rosandra S. Diaz, James Elvin A. Ipulan, and Maria Ruth Precious O. Lindawan.
REX and PEAC hope that this batch of scholars under the PEAC–REX Edukampyon Iskolar Para Sa Kinabukasan will be the first of many, so that more students, Centers of Excellence, and other education champions contribute to the highest quality of teaching in the country.
“We want to champion teacher education. We want to make teaching an attractive proposition for our young. And at the same time, ensure that the program will have a very strong values formation program, so that our scholars will have a very strong sense of social responsibility and contribute to nation-building,” said Doris Ferrer, Executive Director of PEAC.
An effort to address the challenges faced by the education sector
The PEAC–REX Edukampyon Iskolar Para Sa Kinabukasan is one of the many efforts and collaborations REX enters into to help address the challenges faced by Philippine education.
“We all agree that the quality of teachers facilitating learning has to do a lot in making sure that the quality of education itself is also improved. So any intervention that is designed to provide the Department of Education (DepEd) with better inputs in terms of teachers will truly be a welcome contribution,” said Diosdado M. San Antonio, DepEd Undersecretary for Curriculum and Instruction.
International competitiveness reports and activities participated in by the Philippines in 2018–2019 suggest a big gap in quality that should compel critical attention from the government and the education sector.
In a study by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) in 2018, 81% of the 15-year-old Filipino students who were surveyed scored below minimum proficiency levels in reading, mathematics, and science compared to most countries that participated. Grade 4 students obtained the lowest scores in mathematics and science among the 58 countries surveyed by the International Association for the Evaluation of Educational Achievement’s (IEA’s) Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS) in 2019.
While limited resources and a challenging learning environment are realities many Filipino learners have to deal with on a daily basis, there is much to improve in terms of uplifting the quality of education that students receive. Quality teachers who nurture students at the basic education level can therefore have a ripple effect in improving Philippine education.
“Improving teacher quality in schools will mean attracting and selecting the best candidates into the teaching profession. To strengthen teacher quality, [we] should begin from selecting the right people into the profession. Policies in teacher recruitment and hiring should be aimed at increasing the attractiveness of the career, such as incentivizing high achievers to pursue teacher training and eventually enter into the profession,” read the World Bank Philippines Report 2021.
“This small act that we are doing at present, can have a great impact in all our futures. Invest in our teachers to-be today, so we can enjoy a bright and progressive tomorrow,” said Buhain.

It’s raining affordable jewelry with Cebuana Lhuillier’s“Rainy Day Gold Rush Sale”

Buying and collecting gold jewelry go beyond aesthetics nowadays. With the value of gold continuously on an upswing and even expected to outweighs inflation risks (source), now is the best time to buy jewelry. It’s an investment that you can use for your personal enjoyment, as well as a dependable source of cash in times of emergency.
Cebuana Lhuillier is giving its loyal clients and general public another taste of its widely-anticipated jewelry sales with the announcement of its “Rainy Day Gold Rush Sale,” set to take place from July 13 to 19.

Jean Henri Lhuillier, Cebuana Lhuillier president & CEO, has always encouraged the public to take advantage of gold sales in order to build a sizable investment that can serve as back-up during times of emergency. “Unlike high-end gadgets, gold jewelry will never lose its value over time.

Unlock this secret now: 7 days is all you need to get the best version of your skin!

Clinical trials reveal 100% proven results
Collagen makes up about 80% of the skin and is a crucial element for building proteins. But by the time one turns 25, the skin begins to lose this key element. As the skin loses more collagen over time, it becomes harder for the skin to stay smooth and plump.
For decades, global beauty brand Avon has innovated with technology that set the benchmark for skincare. This year, the company’s latest innovation is the breakthrough skin-care product Anew Renewal Serum, which promises healthier and future-proof skin in just 7 days.

The Anew Renewal Serum harnesses the power of Protinol™️, a world-exclusive formula that works way quicker, gentler, and more effective than retinol, the previous benchmark in the category. Protinol™️ is designed to strengthen the skin’s foundation with a unique double collagen boost, restoring two types of collagen—collagen 1 and collagen 3, also known as baby collagen, that allow these small building blocks to bind together more efficiently. Working together with niacinamide, the Protinol™️ in the Anew Renewal Serum helps restore baby skin in just 7 days, along with 7 powerful skin benefits—fine lines reduced, firmer and smoother-looking skin, more radiant glow, minimized pores, and stronger-feeling and more resilient skin.
A clinical efficacy test conducted among women aged 40 to 65 years old reveal 100% proven results showing an improvement in at least one of these benefits after using Anew Renewal Serum. What you do now affects your future—make preventative measures with Anew Renewal Serum as early as now before lines become visible, helping you future-proof your skin.
Still don’t believe it? We dare you to put it to the test! Register at bit.ly/FutureproofARS to get a free sample and start your journey to become the next face of Avon Anew. To shop, contact your Avon rep or visit www.avonshop.ph and experience your best skin in just 7 days.

Puerto Princesa: Paradise Regained The Royal Treatment at Puerto Princesa


With safety protocols firmly enforced, Puerto Princesa is poised to again welcome tourists with open arms. In recent years, the highly urbanized city and tourist haven has been paralyzed by the Covid-19 pandemic, then pummeled by Typhoon Odette. But it is now on the road to recovery---as spectacularly as its scenic, romantic and gastronomic attractions.
“The tourism industry is the lifeblood of Puerto Princesa, along with agriculture. Almost 15,000 people directly or indirectly benefit from tourism. In varying degrees, most of the recent construction and development projects are related to tourism: hotel-building, parks, cruise-ship ports, street lights, roads and many more. Unfortunately, some of these have been on hold since the onset of the pandemic,” discloses Demetrio “Toto” Alvior Jr., the city tourism officer.
The Royal Connection
Puerto Princesa, the capital of postcard-perfect Palawan, sprawls across 253,982 hectares of captivating coastlines stretched over 106 kilometers. Due to its strategic geographical location, it has sufficient depth to allow ships of all sizes to anchor, earning a reputation as a “Princess of Ports,” or in Spanish, “Puerto Princesa.”
There’s no contention that Puerto Princesa is one of the country’s greatest pleasures. A holiday destination universally beloved by travelers, beach-combers and trekkers; a bustling business center with a rural allure; a provincial vibe with modern amenities; and a clean and green city recognized for its lush forests, fresh air and frontier character.
Rising Above Covid-19
The city of Puerto Princesa has been struggling to get to its feet since the outbreak of Covid-19 in early 2020. The lack of tourists, which is the main industry, has forced hundreds of tourism-related businesses to close, leaving thousands of tourism workers unemployed.

“The public-health crisis forced them to find alternative sources of income, which was made more difficult because of the restrictions of movement due to several lockdowns,” Mr. Alvior reveals. “One factor of low tourist arrivals is the fluctuating number of Covid cases, which in turn affects the determination of quarantine requirements and national government intervention policies.”
Today, Puerto Princesa is experiencing record lows in terms of economic losses, losing around P5 billion a year for the past two years from potential tourist receipts.
“The City Tourism Department has been strengthening its social media campaigns to encourage local tourists to visit local attractions, in a bid to boost much-needed revenues to the ailing tourism sector,” a cautiously optimistic Mr. Alvior says. “We have one important wish in the City Tourism Department, and that is to prioritize the aids for the Typhoon Odette-affected tourism industry here.”
The goal is to regain the city’s glory as an eco-tourism capital. “Our 2022 goals are full restoration of all the tourist attractions affected by Typhoon Odette such as the completion of the construction of the cruise-ship port and other man-made tourist attractions. There will be wide, extensive and aggressive promotions of Puerto Princesa to the local and international market.”

The Last Frontier
Puerto Princesa has a plethora of tourist spots. But many tourists who visit the city put the Puerto Princesa Subterranean River National Park, one of the New7Wonders of Nature, on top of their list. As the jump-off point for exploring the world-famous Tubbataha Reef, the city also hosts a fair share of adventurers.
“Since the Covid-19 outbreak, we have never ceased to hope that the future will be better. This year 2022 is no different. And while what we want is a full recovery, we cannot afford to be careless when taking big steps. As we begin to truly understand the gravity of the situation, we also come to realize that our moves must be consistent with the bigger picture such as the national situation,” Mr. Alvior says.
Since February 10, the city has been happily welcoming more visitors once again, hoping that the arrival numbers will soon be back to pre-pandemic levels. In this initiative, the tourism department shares the privilege on with the private sector.

“While the government is the administrator of the State, the private sector is the bloodline. The government and the private sector are two inseparable factors for Puerto Princesa to prosper, and more importantly, to recover,” Mr. Alvior says. “The key to recovery is to enable and support the private sector to keep or resume their business operations. When it comes to the city’s biggest partners, apart from government agencies, it is the collective impact of small-business operations.”
Puerto Princesa may be “The Last Frontier,” but the City Tourism Department is confident that it will always be the first choice of every traveler.

When developing tech leaders, a global perspective is key

Shopee cultivates tech talent with overseas training and exposure

MANILA, APRIL 6, 2022  - Over the last decade, technology has radically changed the way businesses all over the world look and operate.  Accompanying this meteoric change among businesses, is the need for different leadership traits. 


According to Forbes, key traits that future leaders will need to possess include the ability to embrace technology and employ a global citizen mindset. This mindset includes celebrating diversity and understanding new cultures in order to gain knowledge on how to enter and succeed in new global markets. On the other hand, embracing technology will allow leaders to improve efficiency in the organization.


Shopee, the leading e-commerce platform in Southeast Asia and Taiwan, continues to instill these fundamental traits into young, tech-driven talent through the Global Leaders Program. This year marks its fourth iteration as it continues to mold tech leaders of tomorrow. 

The Global Leaders Program is a 2-year graduate program consisting of four 6-month local and overseas rotations open to final-year students and young professionals with up to two years of working experience. Participants can expect to receive mentorship from senior management, a rigorous training curriculum under the various Shopee departments, and the opportunity to work on highly impactful projects. And one of the key experiences of the Global Leaders Program is the opportunity to work in different Shopee markets across the region and gain pivotal exposure to the tech industry. Throughout the overseas rotation, Shopee will provide mobility support to GLP Associates to ensure hassle-free overseas accommodations and seamless visa applications.

Karen Perez, Head of People at Shopee Philippines, said “At Shopee, we understand how crucial developing a global perspective is in pushing the Philippine tech industry forward. Through the overseas rotations of the Global Leaders Program, we believe that we can help broaden the horizons of young Filipino talent. We are deeply committed to delivering more opportunities to hone the skills of young Filipino professionals and support the growth of our local digital economy.”

Jan, a GLP associate currently completing her second overseas rotation in Thailand under the Marketing Department, has shared what influenced her decision to apply. “The promise of diverse rotation and regional exposure at such a young age attracted me to the Global Leaders Program. I believe the program brings in many unique opportunities that would allow me to launch my career and create immediate impact.” she said.

For Lance, another GLP associate that is also currently assigned to Thailand, the opportunity to gain regional exposure abroad has provided him with a better understanding of our local situation. He shared, “Being able to live and work in the same company, but in a different country immediately provides me with a new ‘perspective’. This is quite useful because it helps me notice the differences between Thailand and the Philippines in terms of the needs of our buyers and sellers, organizational structure, and working-style. These differences helped me strategize on how we can better tailor our solutions or ways of working to fit different local contexts.”

Koko, on the other hand, completed his overseas training in Singapore last August 2021. Being trained abroad gave him the opportunity to grow as both a professional and an individual. He said,  “I was able to experience different work functions, roles, industries, and even markets in the short span of two years. I also had the opportunity to take on a lot of responsibility early on in my career, which helped me build confidence in my own knowledge and skills.” 

Young Filipinos looking to challenge themselves and drive change in the tech industry are welcome to apply to Shopee’s Global Leaders Program here: https://careers.shopee.ph/GLP. The application period has been extended until April 30 2022.
