Tutuban Center Mall: Virtual Zoo opens its doors today!


Tutuban Center Mall: Virtual Zoo opens its doors today! 
 
Good news to all mom and dad! A very unique attraction opened at Tutuban Center today, October 26, 2012. Aptly called the Tutuban Center Virtual Zoo. It captured not only the hearts and minds of kids but even the kids-at-heart.
Minus the actual zoo animals, the Tutuban Center Virtual Zoo will surely pack ‘em in as wide-eyed visitors will truly marvel at the sights. The Tutuban Center Virtual Zoo is a collage of larger-than-life 3D photos of all the familiar animals in the animal world and then mounted on the blank walls of the cinema lobby.

With these exciting animals in various poses, the entire cinema lobby was beautifully transformed to become a virtual theme park that would provide joy and thrills to every visitor, what with every almost life-like image of animals, from crocodiles to giant spiders, tigers, turtles, sharks, bats, elephants and lions, greeting you at every corner of the virtual zoo.

However, these photos are not just there for people to ogle at. To make it more fun and merry, each wall is already an interactive photo booth by itself that is open to all shoppers and moviegoers. This means everyone is free to pose with the pictures of the animals however they want. You can pose as if the giant croc is eating you, or probably lifting an enormous elephant on its feet. The possibilities are endless, and every pose can only be limited by your imagination. And what is good about Tutuban Virtual Zoo? Admission is FREE!

To celebrate the opening of the Tutuban Center Virtual Zoo, Tutuban Center management lined up today several fun and sometimes heart-stopping activities to make today’s opening truly memorable.

After the registration in the morning, VIP guests and visitors witnessed the blessing and ribbon-cutting ceremony that formally declared the virtual zoo open. After this, everyone was invited to gamely pose with the photos of the animals in their most wacky or even life-like poses as those with cameras, including the media, clicked away to capture each fun moment.


Simultaneous to the opening of the Tutuban Center Virtual Zoo, a separate activity was also held starting at the Bonifacio Plaza where students from invited schools, different kids’ groups, sponsors and the general public participated in the parade the circled around the Prime Block and Centermall vicinity. They were also treated to an entertaining mascot show and trivia games that thrilled guests even more.


After a hearty snack time, guests were provided with another round of entertaining and hilarious treats like a magic show, mascot appearances and even special appearances by cosplayers who delighted the crowd with their spectacular and colourful costumes of different animé characters.

Finally, a “Parade of Nations” courtesy of kids under the care of the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) capped the day’s celebration, while for the entire day, kids had fun with the face-painting activity done by face painting artists, and the human statues who made guests and onlookers smile with their antics.



 
Visit the Tutuban Center Virtual Zoo, now open at Tutuban Center from 10:00am up to 8:00pm and located along C.M. Recto Avenue in Manila.

BREAST CANCER AWARENESS MONTH: Evolife Team Up with Unilab


BREAST CANCER AWARENESS MONTH: Evolife Team Up with Unilab


Evolife products are formulated for cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy and radiotherapy treatments. Alleviating the Side Effects of Cancer treatment.

With the growing census of cancer incidence in the country, there is real concern in providing supportive care not only during treatment but more so when the treatment side effects start manifesting.

For cancer patients, managing the side effects is as important as addressing the cancer itself. According to doctors, side effects can compromise treatment and even recovery. According to Dr. Maria Luisa Abesamis-Tiambeng, M.D., head of the CSMC Cancer Institute, M.D. “The psychological scars caused by the physical manifestations of treatment, like rashes, skin discoloration, blackened nails and falling hair erode patients’ self-esteem and the will to fight. But psychological well-being is crucial to a successful treatment. If cancer patients feel low and miserable, their response to treatment is greatly affected. So if the side effects of treatment do not bother the patient, their treatment regimen becomes more tolerable, if not welcome. Products like Evolife can help make patients commit to their treatment regimen and achieve the ultimate cure. These innovative products can prove crucial in licking the Big C.”

In a concerted effort to alleviate the side effects of chemotherapy and radiotherapy, Point of Care Solutions Inc. (PCSI) in partnership with United Laboratories recently introduced Evolife products to the Philippines.
 
PCSI is the exclusive distributor of Evolife’s full range of cancer-support care products that treat the cutaneous and cutaneous-mucuos side effects induced by chemotherapy and radiotherapy. Evolife products are the result of years of research and development by a dedicated team of dermatologists, oncologists, and scientists based in France. Evolife Products contain a unique blend of natural minerals that provide premium hydration and protection for patients undergoing cancer treatment. They are the first and only products of their kind that are effective, uniquely designed with the needs of cancer patients in mind, and they are well tested,” says oncologist J.F. Chanez in “The Neurogenic Component of Cutaneous Toxicities Induced by Chemotherapy – New Solutions”, European Oncology Journal, Vol 6:1, 28-30.

Michael S. Avelino. Managing Director of Point of Care Solutions, Inc. said “As the company’s initial offering, Evolife products deliver the company’s passion and commitment to help cancer patients improve their quality of life.”
Evolife products underwent clinical trials in the Philippines in 2011 and produced very positive results, Avelino added.

Evolife products consist of skin care products (EvoSkin Gel Cream and Evolife Hydrating Skin Cleanser which provide a unique hydrating solution for skin side effects of cancer therapy such as cracks, dryness and a burning sensation), oral care products (EvoMucy mouthwash and spray for mouth sores, EvoLip for chapped or sensitive lips, EvoDry mouth spray to combat mouth and throat dryness and EvoDonto toothpaste for sensitive and irritated gums), a scalp care product (EvoCapil hydrating hair spray that calms the scalp and rejuvenates hair follicles to encourage hair re-growth), a hygiene product (EvoDeo Deodorant Spray, an alcolohol-free deodorant spray for hypersensitive skin controls hot flashes and excessive sweating) and nail care products (EvoNail which helps revitalize darkened, yellow, brittle or cracked nails and restores them to their natural state).

Cancer patient, Tina, who underwent chemotherapy and radiotherapy, experienced mouth sores and burning sensations on her skin. “The mouth sores were too painful to eat anything so I lost a lot of weight. After my doctor recommended EvoMucy mouth wash the sores disappeared in 3 days for good.This helped me regain my energy as I went through with my treatment. I also used EvoSkin Gel Cream and EvoNail. After using it for a few days, the burning sensation went away and my nails did not blacken at all, unlike other patients undergoing treatment.”

This new product line will complement the existing cancer treatment regimen being offered by Unilab and will provide a wholistic supportive care program for cancer patients.

SULIT CLIQUE:Sulit.com.ph First Blogger's Event at Spicy Fingers


SULIT CLIQUE: Sulit.com.ph First Blogger's Event at Spicy Fingers

I was one of the bloggers who were invited by Sulit.com.ph to their first ever Blogger's event held last October 24, 2012 at Spicy Finger's in Greenbelt in Makati.
It was raining that day and I just came from two earlier events. Greenbelt is three hours away from home. That includes lining up at the MRT and walking from Ayala MRT station to Spicy Fingers for like twenty minutes, depending on how fast you walk. I don't want to proceed anymore to the venue but I already confirmed my attendance to Ms. Rachelle so for the sake of mutual respect and word of honor I walk and walk until I reached Spicy Fingers. I then registered, and enter the venue.

I hardly ate because I was so full already from an earlier event that I attended. Next time round, I will reserve some space for the great food selected by Sulit.
 
Good thing, Sulit had a photo booth and everybody had fun posing. Each one of us lined up, pose and had our pictures taken. 
 
We also participated in a game, where we had to turn the tarpaulin around. Each group is consists of 5 members each. We called our group sulit. We did not win but we're happy that boy kuripot's team won. Even if we did not win anything, we felt happy because we get to play and had fun with other bloggers.
 
 Ano ang hanap mo? You can find everything at sulit.com.ph. That's a fact.
 
My blogger friend Blanca won an Ipad during the raffle draw. I was misty eyed because I know that Blanca deserves the Ipad because her husband had just passed away and she hardly attend bloggers events since her husband had passed away.





We were also amazed by the story behind sulit.com.ph. The amazing couple Rj and Arianne David conceptualized their business inside Rj's room when they were still bf-gf. They are now married and amazingly turned sulit.com.ph into a multi-million business. Filipinos are really talented. The founder of sulit deserves a commendation and I think they should write a book and I hope that the book will be taught at business school or even in high school. Because that way, they can inspire other people to never give up and go for  their dreams.
