Ariel Oxybleach Makes Your Clothes Good As New

Ariel Experts vs. 100
I am not good with washing clothes but I get to learn what I do because I also do that task at home and I also got to live by myself. But one thing I do know that washing clothes also makes the colors fade. Ariel Oxybleach gives us this challenge when I got to participate to a game show inspired event called Ariel Experts vs. 100. We answered some questions to find out how much we know about washing clothes. We even compared two white short sleeves where one is new and the other was washed with Ariel Oxybleach. The shirts are both appears the same and only an expert like Patrick Tan, Senior Store Operations Manager of Bench, could determine the difference. Bench and Metropole Laundry and Dry Cleaners,Inc., agreed that Ariel Oxybleach can make clothes as new as it can be. Try using Ariel Oxybleach and see for yourself and compare it with the new. Ariel Oxybleach is now available in supermarkets, groceries, and sari-sari stores nationwide. SRP Ariel Sakto Pack 30 grams PhP6.00

Partying AXE VIP Style at the BigFish Innovation White Party


What do you get when you add gorgeous women and an exclusive VIP area with free-flowing drinks?

The AXE VIP life.

When AXE Philippines gave five lucky guys and their entourages the chance to experience life as a rock star for one night, it’s no surprise that so many guys vied to be a part of the chosen few.
Joining was easy. All they had to do was describe their idea of the ultimate music star experience and they had a shot at partying with gorgeous women and enjoying free-flowing drinks at the BigFish Innovation White Party.
In the end, it was Josh, Joel, Daniel, Gino, and Edwin who were given the ultimate VIP experience.

An Awesome Partnership
“A BigFish party has all the right elements--great music, cool people, gorgeous people,” Paul Diaz, Brand Manager of AXE“I mean, if Axe is all about the mating game, then what better venue to expose our guys to a great playing field than at a BigFish event?”

For the Axe winners, the party began even before the BigFish event. They had the chance to wine and dine the gorgeous Axe girls as they prepared for a legendary night of partying.
“When I knew I’d won, I went wild. I never expected I’d win, but here I am,” Josh Cabrera grinned, looking at the rest of the winners. “We’re having a great time. We’re all friends.”

Going All Out for the Winners
  “Our idea was simple. We wanted to give five guys a chance to experience the music star VIP lifestyle for a night,” said Diaz. “But we’re not talking about just getting them into the VIP area. No, for an AXE party, we pulled out all the stops.”

After dinner, each Axe VIP was driven to the BigFish Innovation White Party in a black SUV. Like any real star, they couldn’t go to the party alone. They were allowed to share the high life with their best buds, a la Vincent Chase and his posse from Entourage.

As the winners arrived at the event, they were greeted by screaming fans and even photographed like real stars. Each of them proudly walked down the AXE VIP carpet escorted by AXE girls, truly relishing the VIP experience.

The special treatment didn’t stop there. Once inside, they were given AXE VIP red bands and were ushered into their very own VIP area. With Above and Beyond providing great music, it was indeed the perfect way to end the week.

“Only AXE can come with the complete VIP experience,” declared Paul Diaz. “As a brand that’s known for giving guys the edge in the mating, it was only fitting that no expense was spared when it came to giving a taste of the VIP life for our winners.”

Movie Review:The Social Network

Synopsis:How a social network empire began.
L-R. Jesse Eisenberg, Brenda Song, and Andrew Garfield

Review:It is a timely movie that can give an idea how the empire of Mark Zucherberg began. Casting Jesse Eisenberg in the film was remarkably uncanny. Both Eisenberg and Zucherberg resembled identically. The movie tells how Facebook started and became the leading social network site. It also has the elements of E-business and the issues faced by Zucherberg that can happen in real life. The movie was not expensive but it will hit the box office competing with Inception and The Town. The Social Network stars Jesse Eisenberg, Andrew Garfield, Justin Timberlake, Brenda Song. The Social Network opens in Philippine cinemas on October 27.

Movie Review:STONE

Robert De Niro and Milla Jovovich in STONE
Synopsis: Parole officer Jack Mabry (De Niro) counts the days toward a quiet retirement, he is asked to review the case of Gerald ``Stone Creeson (Norton), in prison for covering up the murder of his grandparents with a fire. Now eligible for early release, Stone needs to convince Jack he has reformed, but his attempts to influence the older man's decision have profound and unexpected consequences for them both.

 Review:The film is done in an independent production so it has no Hollywood influence but it casts Academy award winner Robert De Niro, Edward Norton and Milla Jovovich. This is a great ensemble of cast. Robert De Niro has established a name for himself since the Godfather movies and has done various type of roles. Edward Norton is a talented actor since Primal Fear. Milla Jovovich is a versatile actress herself. Robert De Niro's performance in the movie is far different from usual tough guy image and it also explores a different acting performance. Edward Norton had many roles with and is very flexible. In this movie, his character progresses differently. Milla Jovovich's performance was quite unexpected. She can speak as if she was American local her acting was quite noticeable not because of the explicit scenes but of the way she carries her role. The movie is for a very mature audience because it has very disturbing issues. But there were also insights that can be taken from the story.

STONE opens October 27 exclusively at Ayala cinemas(Glorietta 4, Greenbelt 3 and Trinoma).

Ingat Pilipinas



Statistics from the PNP-Highway Patrol Group revealed that there were over 20,008 road accidents reported in 2009—this means that there are around 50 road accidents that occur in the Philippines on a daily basis. As we speak, 2 vehicles have probably gotten into an accident during the past hour.

With 78% of total daily person trip depending on buses, jeepneys taxis, tricycles, trains and padyaks, it’s no exaggeration to say that a large portion of the And this element of trust takes on more importance in light of DOTC data, which shows that that 80% of road accidents in the country are caused by human error.Philippines would literally stop if public transport were to halt their operations.

And in the same way that millions of people rely on public transport to bring them to school, work or to their favorite pasyalan, these very same people entrust their very lives to the manongs, kuyas and bossing drivers that control these modes of transport. 
Fr. L-R: Atty. Yves Gonzales(MMDA), Col. Edwin Butacan(PNP Highway Patrol), Edward Parocha of Safety Organization of the Phils.(SOPI), and Joey Romana(Biogesic)

 These are some facts that are disturbingly true. Biogesic, in coalition with PNP, MMDA and more non-profit organizations formed an online campaign called Ingat Pilipinas. It's a campaign to promote safety in the streets to lessen accidents that may take lives. The idea was brought up by Biogesic's endorser John Lloyd Cruz's famous tagline,Ingat! that inspired Biogesic to take this to the streets as well. So, if we say, Ingat! We should mean it.

Nutritional Value of Chicken

Nowadays, we depend on instant foods and fastfoods because we need to rush things. I am on the old-school kind of guy. I prefer to bring "baon" even until I started working because I prefer home cooking and it lessen the expenses. Compared to pork and beef, chicken is more healthier and cleaner. Here are the some nutritional facts about chicken.

Benefits:
Supports body growth, development and body repair(protein).
Makes our body produce energy.
Protects body cells from damage.
Takes care of normal structure and function of our skin.
Important for our normal structure of bones and teeth.

Nutrient contents in chicken parts:
Highest protein in chicken meat when fried.
Vitamin B3 is highest in liver.
Phosphorus and calcium highest in chicken head and secondly in chicken white meat.

During the press meeting of Bounty Fresh, it's  guaranteed that their chicken is fresh because of their vacuumed packaging. Celebrity Chef Bruce also demonstrated cooking a special dish that can be done at home using Bounty Fresh Chicken. Check more of Bounty Fresh products at your nearest supermarket or at Chooks To Go.

Movie Review:Life As We Know It

Plot: Holly Berenson, a up and coming caterer and Eric Messer, a promising sports network director are two people with clashing personalities. What they only have in common is their hate for each other since their first blind date and their love for their godchild, Sophie. Fate had some in store in mind when baby Sophie's parents had an accident and Holly and Eric were given custody of Sophie if they live in the same house together.
Josh Duhamel as Messer and Katherine Heigl as Holly

Review: This is a romantic comedy like no other. It not only display the conflict of the major characters but it also display struggles that can happen in real life. Eric and Holly's life won't be the same because they have Sophie in their lives. Katherine Heigl stars as Holly. She was always been one of my favorites since My Father, the Hero and Knocked Up. Since Knocked Up, her roles has been always comedy with serious issues. "Life As We Know It" is just another one. Katherine herself is a family person and she is raising a child she adopted. For Josh Duhamel, I never thought he would also join the romantic comedy industry. I alwas see him as an action guy like his regular role as Lennox in Transformers. Duhamel said he even come early before the shoot so he could spend time with the triplet babies who played Sophie so he could build a bond with them when acting. Making a movie with a baby as one of the cast is hard to do. It will also depend of the babies' mood. The movie didn't just concentrate on the romantic comedy part but also on the family aspect. This is a good date movie but also ideal for couples who are expecting a baby in the future. Life As We Know It opens in Philippine cinemas October 20 and is distributed by Warner Bros.(Photo courtesy of Warner Bros. Philippines)
