Official statement of Tutuban Properties Inc. Re: Cluster Building "Fire Out"

Official statement of Tutuban Properties Inc. Re: Cluster Building "Fire Out"

Updated Statement

7 September 2012

Ikinagagalak na ibahagi ng Tutuban Center na mula kaninang ika 1 ng umaga,
idineklara ng Bureau of Fire Protection (BFP) ang "Fire Out"  status sa
Cluster Building . Kasalukuyan ding ginaganap ang "mopping-up operations" sa
mga oras na ito.

Nais din naming pasalamatan ang mga magigiting na kalalakihan at kababaihan
ng BFP sa ilalim ng pamumuno ni General Santiago Laguna, pati na din ang mga
miyembro ng mga iba't-ibang volunteer firefighting organization dahil sa
kanilang walang sawang pagtulong. Nais din naming pasalamatan ang suporta ni
Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) Undersecretary Rico Puno,
Manila Mayor Alfredo Lim, at ang Manila Police District.

Dahil sa balitang ito, ang mga tagapamahala ng Tutuban Center, kasama ang
mga Cluster Building Tenant Association, ay maaari nang itutok ang atensiyon
nito sa pangangalaga ng mga pangangailangan ng mga tenant.

Maaari na ding makipag-coordinate ang mga tenant sa Tutuban Center Building
Administration o magtungo lamang sa Cluster Building Help Desk na
matatagpuan sa Loop Road Skybridge A.

Nagpapatuloy na din ang normal na operasyon sa Centermall, Prime Block,
Robinsons Supermarket at Robinsons Department Store.

Patuloy din kaming umaasa na aming malalampasan ang pagsubok na ito at
magsimulang magtrabahong muli para sa isang bago at maliwanag na bukas.
Press Release
6 September 2012- 10am

Collective efforts of the Bureau of Fire Protection (BFP) and volunteer firefighters have not ceased since the fire broke out early yesterday morning at Cluster Building. At 10 am today, BFP officials have declared the fire control.

So effective 10am today, Centermall 1 and 2 and Prime Block buildings have resumed normal or "business as usual" operations, including the Robinsons department store and supermarket. Safeguards are in place to ensure that the resumption of operations will in no way hamper fire control efforts.

We believe that the current situation is but a minor setback in the redevelopment of Tutuban Center. Management affirms its commitment to move towards a new and revitalized Cluster Building.

InnerShine® Berry Essence

The Seven Super Berries
BRAND'S® InnerShine® Berry Essence is a delicious fruit-based, ready-to-drink essence with extraordinary health benefits

When I first read about InnerShine® Berry Essence I got really interested. I told myself, I ought to try this real soon. Who wouldn't? Imagine the wonders it does to one's body! It gives you a 
  • Clearer, sharper vision. 
  • Age-defying, healthier-looking skin. 
  • Better protection from free radical damage.
This isn't a list of some superhero's extraordinary powers. It's only a sampling of the many health benefits that come with every bottle of the new InnerShine® Berry Essence (IBE).

Made by BRAND'S®, a company with a pioneering presence in the health and wellness industry for the last 170 years, InnerShine® Berry Essence is a delicious fruit-based, ready-to-drink essence that serves as a natural source of vital nutrients and powerful antioxidants. It contains the goodness of seven premium types of berries from Europe and the U.S.—acai berry, bilberry, blackcurrant, chokeberry, cranberry, elderberry, and strawberry—combined to form an exclusive "super berry" blend, providing health, nourishment, and protection in ways that no other fruit-based drinks can.

Available at all the following stores in the Greater Manila area:
  •  Watsons
  •  Landmark supermarkets
  •  and Mercury Drug
SRP of P85 per bottle, BRAND'S® IBE is also fortified with Vitamins A, C, E, and zinc. It contains no added artificial colorings or preservatives, and bursts with an irresistible all-natural taste that also remains unrivaled by regular diet drinks and artificial supplements.

IBE’s Seven Super Berries

The seven super berries make every bottle of InnerShine® Berry Essence the perfect nutritional drink in today's increasingly stressful modern environment. As you carry out a very hectic and stress-filled work day facing the computer for long hours, exposure to many types of environmental pollution, spending late nights at work, and other situations that may create problems for both your skin and eyes, IBE works to deliver special benefits that promote supple and smooth skin and clearer and healthier vision. The berries, in fact, each have rich antioxidant qualities that help protect the skin and eyes from free radical damage, such as that caused by UV radiation, environmental pollution, and heavy visual workload.

Apart from shielding the eye cells, which make up the human body's most delicate and sensitive sense organs, BRAND'S® InnerShine® Berry Essence also packs vital nutrients that help improve overall health as well as support one's ability to have a beautiful, well-nourished body. The exotic acai berry has been heralded for centuries for the many benefits it brings to the body. Not only is it extremely high in anthocyanins, it has powerful antioxidants that help defend the body against life’s stressors.
The rare bilberry fruit from northern Europe, just like the acai berry, is also rich in anthocyanins to strengthen and protect the eyes’ blood vessels and help lessen eye fatigue, while the blackcurrant further enhances eye health with its unique ability to synthesize a biological pigment called rhodopsin (or "visual purple") that enables vision in low-light conditions.
Filtering intense sunlight and providing increased protection from constant exposure to UV radiation is the role of the chokeberry, a shrub fruit native to eastern North America. Thanks to its high levels of anthocyanins and flavonoids, chokeberry is also known as a dietary deterrent against diseases caused by oxidative stress.

Cranberry, on the other hand, is a nourishing fruit with a balanced profile of Vitamin C, dietary fiber, manganese, and essential phytonutrients. They are known to help protect the body from free radical damage, optimize urinary tract health and provide important anti-inflammatory benefits. Also with similar health-boosting capacities is the elderberry, which helps boost the immune system by driving the production of cytokines, the cell-signaling proteins used to regulate immune response. 

Rounding out the IBE's set of seven super berries is the sweet, bright red strawberry. Like the cranberry and elderberry, it packs Vitamin C, dietary fiber, and phytonutrients. Strawberries have also recently been linked to the prevention of heart disease and diabetes, while stimulating proteins with antioxidant qualities.

Specially formulated with these seven super berries, BRAND'S® delicious new InnerShine® Berry Essence indeed packs a healthy punch. A chilled bottle a day of IBE not only serves to build a strong foundation for a lifestyle of health and wellness; it also brings the thought of having extraordinary powers closer than we can ever imagine.

TITO SOTTO: Opppsss He Did It Again!

TITO SOTTO: Opppsss He Did It Again!

Comedian and now Senator-elect Vicente"Tito" Sotto's Privilege Speech today, September 5, 2012 side by side with Robert F. Kennedy’s speech during Day of Affirmation, June 6 1966.

Robert F. Kennedy:

Few will have the greatness to bend history itself, but each of us can work to change a small portion of events, and in the total of all those acts will be written the history of this generation.

It is from numberless diverse acts of courage and belief that human history is shaped.

Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring those ripples build a current which can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.

Vicente Sotto III:

Iilan ang magiging dakila sa pagbali ng kasaysayan, subalit bawat isa sa atin ay maaaring kumilos, gaano man kaliit, para ibahin ang takbo ng mga pangyayari. Kapag pinagsama-sama ang ating munting pagkilos, makalilikha tayo ng totalidad na magmamarka sa kabuuan ng kasaysayan ng henerasyong ito. Ang mga hindi-mabilang na iba't ibang galaw ng katapangan at paninindigan ang humuhubog sa kasaysayan ng sangkatauhan. Tuwing naninindigan tayo para sa isang paniniwala, tuwing kumikilos tayo para mapabuti ang buhay ng iba, tuwing nilalabanan natin ang kawalan ng katarungan, nakalilikha tayo ng maliliit na galaw. Kapag nagkasama-sama ang mumunting galaw na mga ito, bubuo ito ng isang malakas na puwersang kayang magpabagsak maging ng pinakamatatag na dingding ng opresyon.

Sought for an answer for the alleged Tagalized version of the former US Senator's speech, Sen. Tito Sotto said he was not aware that the passages came from a Kennedy speech. He said a friend texted it to him then he had it translated in Tagalog.

The senator only laughed off the allegation that he copied from a Kennedy original. "Marunong na palang managalog si Kennedy ha," he said. "Sino ngayon ang kinopyahan ko na Tagalog? Meron ba silang alam na pinanggalingan na tagalog nun?" he asked.

Mukha ho yatang napapadalas na Senador Tito Sotto III. Sino ho ba ang gumagawa ng mga speech ninyo? Maari mo na po yata ninyong sibakin yan. Masyado ho niya kayong nilalagay sa kahihiyan hindi lamang sa sambayanan Pilipino kungdi sa buong mundo.

Buti ho kami ay hamak na BLOGGER LANG, eh kayo ho ay isang kagalang galang na senador, ang labis na panggagaya ang maghahatid sa inyo sa putikan este kapahamakan dahil pwede ho kayong matagurian na "Plagiarist". Pwede mo naman pong i quote, basta may attribution.

Maaaring ipinagkikibit balikat lamang po ninyo at pinagtatawanan ang nakaraang panggagaya ninyo sa mga sinulat ng isang Amerikanang blogger dahil sa estado at posisyon ninyo sa senado. Pero pag isipan po ninyong mabuti kung ano ang dulot ng pang aalipusta ninyo sa mga hamak na blogger lang na yan. Pinapansin at napapansin na po ang mga sinasabi ninyo. Pag isipan mo pong mabuti bago kayo magbukas ng bibig. Pag-aralan po ninyo kung ang inyong mga sinasabi ay sadyang galing sa kaibuturan ng inyong apdo este puso.
Bakit po ba puro mga sinulat ng mga taga Amerika ang laging ginagaya ng inyong tagasulat? Gayahin naman po niya ang Pinoy. Tangkilikin ang sariling atin. Go Pinoy!

Tagalog translation of ripples on google: galaw, bulwak, kulo.

Ripple of hope should not be translated verbatimly. Ripple of hope simply means "Nagbibigay ng kaunting pag-asa" and not "Kaunting galaw". You should tell that to your translator po.

Geez, I can't help reacting. Opps, may I go out now Siree.

Bawal akong ma stress.

FREE MOVIES: Cine Europa Film Festival at Shangrila Plaza

The 15th edition of the Cine Europa Film Festival will open today, September 5, 2012 at Shangri-La Plaza. It will include a performance by the Manila String Quartet, a painting exhibition by local artists and the screening of the movie "Upperdog" to mark the inclusion for the first time of a movie from Norway.
To mark its fifteenth year (15th) Cine Europa will draw on its collaboration with the Film Development Council of the Philippines (FDCP) to double the number of Film Festival locations from three to six. Yes, folks, screenings will now be at: 
  • Shangri-La Plaza (September 6 to 16)
  • Ayala Center in Cebu (September 21 to 24)
  • Liceo de Cagayan in Cagayan de Oro (September 27 to 30)
  • Davao (October 4 to 7)
  • Baguio (October 11 to 14)
  • Iloilo (October 18 to 21). 
Cine Europa 15 is first and foremost an opportunity for Filipinos to enjoy the taste of Europe's particular cinematic traditions. It is also an opportunity for us Europeans to wear our heart on our sleeve and share our hopes, fears and dreams with our Filipino friends according to Julian Vassallo  of the The European Union Delegation to the Philippines.

This year's educational component and the screening of select Filipino movies will also explore the links between the European and Filipino cinema which are deeper than many people may think. Educational round tables will tackle different aspects of cinematic art while information will be made available on Filipino filmmakers may be able to access European funds.


For the first time, organisers of Cine Europa are tapping the resources of the Independent Film Cooperative (IFC) to enhance further the educational component of the festival with round table discussions with prominent film personalities and experts exploring the links between European and Filipino films while also offering screenings of selected Filipino movies with European connections.

Four Filipino films will be featured in the festival:
  •  September 8, 2012 at 1 pm at the Shang’s Premiere Theatre- "Paglipad ng Anghel" by Clodualdo del Mundo Jr.
  •  September 15, 2012 - Documentary film "Kano". "Bakal Boys", considered as the most awarded Filipino film in 2009.
  •  "MNL 143" that premiered in the Edinburgh film festival last July 2012 will also be featured.
From its humble beginning of just only 11 films in 1998, Cine Europa will now present 21 films from:
  •  Austria
  •  Belgium
  •  Bulgaria
  •  Czech Republic
  •  Denmark
  •  Finland
  •  France
  •  Germany
  •  Italy
  •  The Netherlands
  •  Norway
  •  Romania
  •  Slovakia
  •  Spain
  •  Sweden
  •  Switzerland
  •  United Kingdom.
The Manila leg of Cine Europa will open with the movie "Upperdog" which tackles multiculturalism from the experiences of two young Koreans adopted by two different families from Oslo. Directed by Sarah Johnsen, "Upperdog" received various "Amanda" awards - the equivalent of Oscars in Norway. In Cebu, the festival will open with the Italian movie by Bernardo Bertolucci, "L'Ultimo Imperatore" (The Last Emperor).

The Manila edition of Cine Europa will be inaugurated by the Chargé d'Affaires a.i. of the Delegation of the European Union, Lubomir Frebort in the presence of European Ambassadors and Consuls as well as Ms. Lala Fojas, Executive Vice-President and General Manager of Shangri-La Plaza Corporation.

Cine Europa 15 is organised by the European Union Cultural Group in Manila which gathers together the Embassies and Cultural Institutes of the European Union. 

The Embassies of Norway and Switzerland, the Film Development Council of the Philippines, the Independent Film Cooperative, the Shangri-La Plaza Mall (Manila), Arts Council of Cebu and Liceo de Cagayan de Oro (Mindanao) are Partners of Cine Europa 15.
