OPPO Supports Miss Possibilities in Stopping the Use of the “R” Word


Miss Possibilities, the first pageant in Asia for children with special needs, just recently crowned Miss Possibilities 2017 Jennica Garcia.

Despite having cerebral palsy, this did not stop Jennica in achieving her dreams by finishing a degree in Finance Accounting and passing the teacher’s licensure exam. OPPO fully supports the Miss Possibilities Foundation in its aim to raise awareness for equal treatment. One of their strong advocacies is to end the use of the “R” word due to its defamatory and unethical meaning.

The pageant is in its 3rd installment since 2015, and it has become a tradition for the special needs community to gather together for one special night to celebrate their achievements, talents, and importance to the society. With its core theme “Beauty Knows No Boundaries”, it also featured the overwhelming support of influential celebrities who joined the special fashion show with children from the special needs community in their French themed outfits.

OPPO Philippines supported all pageant contestants by giving them their own smartphones to enable them to capture moments and share their experiences online as they too, have the equal opportunity to explore and experience the social media world.

We fully support the advocacy of Miss Possibilities Foundation in giving people with special needs equal treatment in society today. The aim of ending the use of the “R” word is very admirable and should be encouraged as this is a start to having a better future for our society,” said OPPO Philippines’ PR Manager Eason de Guzman.

Miss Possibilities Foundation gives those with special needs a platform to be celebrated without being judged or excluded because of their differences. We cherish those differences and would like to thank OPPO Philippines for doing the same. Thank you to OPPO Philippines for making this opportunity and experience possible for people with special needs and their families,” said Suzanna Yuzon, Founder and President of Miss Possibilities Foundation.

Miss Possibilities will continue their advocacy in 2018 with more medical missions, workshops, and other programs for families with special needs.

Boy band 1:43 Receives McJim Classic Leather’s OPM Advocacy Grant for the Song ‘Pasensya Na’


WORLD-CLASS leather goods maker McJim Classic Leather has chosen iconic Filipino boy band 1:43 as the second recepient of its Dreams Get Real OPM Advocacy Grant for its new single “Pasensya Na.”

McJim Classic Leather, which has always been supportive of Filipino music, tapped the revamped 1:43 to further promote OPM by making it more appealing and relevant, especially to the younger generation. Towards this end, in fact, McJim successfully launched talent searches for the next big thing in the local music scene and has - in the recent past - sponsored the music of personalities like Tony Labrusca and X-Factor UK contestant JBK.

For decades, McJim Classic Leather has always adhered to its exceptional standards in product quality,” the company said in a statement. “By taking on this advocacy, the brand shows its intent to pursue outstanding local music talents in the country and, in the process, help realize the potential of OPM as a world-class force.

And right now,” the leather brand adds, “we can’t think of a better partner for this than the rejuvenated and charismatic 1:43. We are confident that their heart-tugging second comeback single ‘Pasensya Na’ will engage more Filipinos, especially young local music fans.”

Composed by Jayson Dedal and arranged by Sonic State Audio Studio, “Pasensya Na” dwells on the kind of love that is willing to give - and give some more - just as long as the beloved is happy.

“Handa akong gawin ang lahat-lahat ng gusto mo / Handa akong ialay ang aking buhay para
lang sa’yo / Handa akong ubusin ang aking sarili, o mahal ko / Basta’t lumigaya ka lang kahit
ako pa ang masaktan,” goes the song’s chorus.

“Pasensya na kung talagang mahal kita . . . Lahat ng sakit ay kakayanin ko / Alipin mo ako, alipin ng pag-ibig mo.”

“Pasensya Na” is McJim Classic Leather’s official soundtrack in its viral short film “Sinturon,” which has garnered over10 million views in various Faceboook pages in just a span of three weeks.

“Pasensya Na” can also be streamed in various digital platforms like Spotify worldwide, and is currently enjoying favorable airplay on FM radio stations nationwide. It follows the success of 1:43’s hit comeback single “Trapik Tralala,” which centered on love in the time of traffic gridlock. Chris Cahilig, 1:43 founder and manager, says that ‘Pasensya Na’ is a song that all hopeless romantics can easily relate to.

After all,” Cahilig muses, “it can’t be denied that most of us - at one point in our lives - have been martyrs of love and slaves to our emotions.

“Whether it’s all about unrequited love, loving someone from a distance, or pining for a lost love, ‘Pasensya Na’ speaks for all those who have given their lovers all they’ve got and are still found wanting. If you have ever said sorry or ‘pasensya na’ to someone because loving them too much is simply not enough, this song speaks to you.”

Still, Cahilig says, “there is solace in music, and a song like ‘Pasensya Na’ comforts distressed lovers with the thought that you are not alone in your pain; you don’t have to go through it alone.

If fans love the song, Cahilig suggests that they watch for the official music video of “Pasensya Na,” which he and his team shot in Taipei, Taiwan, and is set to be released early in 2018.

The new 1:43 features four talented and charismatic young men in the persons of Art Artienda, Ced Miranda, Jason Allen Estroso, and Wayne Avellano. The band bagged the 2013 Star Awards for Music Song of the Year for the monster hit “Sa Isang Sulyap Mo” and scored the “Most Promising Performing and Recording Group” recognition in the Guillermo Mendoza Memorial Scholarship Foundation’s 45th Box-Office Entertainment Awards.

Aside from the monster hit “Sa Isang Sulyap Mo,” 1:43 also popularized the songs “Hayop Sa Ganda,” “Pag-Ibig na Kaya,” and “Ang Saya-Saya,” which became the official theme song of the GMA-7 sitcom “Ismol Family”.

1:43 is co-managed by Cahilig and Mario Colmenares of Primetime Events and Talent Management. For booking inquiries, interested parties may send a message at chriscahilig@gmail.com or call 09054409521.

For almost 50 years now, McJim Classic Leather has been the leading and trusted brand for making classic leather goods and accessories of superior quality and design. McJim products are available in leading online shopping sites and all major department stores nationwide.

Vivo Philippines Sealed its Position as the Top Mobile Phone Industry with a $4-Billion Partnership with Qualcomm


Vivo, a young leading global smartphone brand, has been making waves in the country since it first hit Philippine market in March 29, 2016. Since its entry into the local scene, the topnotch brand has vied with other strong phone brands and has proven its developing dominion amongst Filipino smart phone enthusiasts. Just September this year, Vivo launched the revolutionary V7+. 

The V7+ instantly proved itself to be an instant hit and the best accessory for any young, hip, and out-and- about individual in the country. Known as a selfie-centric phone, the V7+ perfects all shots for clearer selfies with its 24MP front-facing camera - an industry-first - with LED flash and smart photography algorithms provides for a clear-cut, crisp, and natural-looking photo. Impressive enough, in just a span of less than two years, Vivo has found a well-deserved spot in a highly-competitive global arena of mobile smart phones both locally and abroad because of its innovative line of phones that are easy on the pocket.

 


To maintain Vivo’s top position in the technology and mobile phone arena, the smart phone brand and
one of Qualcomm's key partners, has signed a memorandum of understanding worth 4 billion U.S. dollars with Qualcomm last November 9. The said memorandum strengthened Vivo and Qualcomm's technical partnership and patent sharing and will ensure that Vivo’s position on top in the smart phone industry will maintain its momentum. With the help of Qualcomm's optimized platforms, Vivo aims to stay faithful to its commitment of delivering innovative and technologies that are at the forefront in mobile photography, gaming, smart power saving, and many more. With the ever changing and evolving technology in the realm of communications, Vivo is also working with Qualcomm on research and development in the biometrics space with the introduction of Vivo Under Display fingerprint scanning solution based on Qualcomm fingerprint sensors at the Mobile World Congress in July this year. This said innovative solution did not disappoint and as such, Vivo plans to continuously work on other technologies, particularly 3D facial identification, palm prints, fingerprints, iris scanning and other biometric technologies, to improve the ease-of- use and security of mobile phone biometrics.

Moreover, with the emergence of 5G, Vivo is looking closely into the significance of human-computer interaction in the 21 st century world and has planned a series of collaborative initiatives to accelerate the formulation of 5G standards. In terms of the 5G SoC (System on Chip), Vivo will also share its many years of consumer market experience with Qualcomm to provide consumers with a better and more customized user experience.

Vivo has always heavily competed to stay as the leader in technology application and consumer insights. In order to fulfill this goal and its ambition to stay at the forefront of technology by working
with global partners, Vivo, in October 20, officially headwayed into Hong Kong and faithful to its global expansion goal into the global market, Vivo will soon introduce their top-of- the-line products to Taiwan, Singapore and Russia, as their first foray into the European market, followed by a push into the African market in early 2018.

Last Five Chance to See "Matilda" at the Meralco Theater


Even if you’re little, you can do a lot” says a line in Naughty which is probably the most popular song from the well-loved and award – winning musical Matilda. This says much about Atlantis Theatrical Entertainment Group’s latest offering as it stages for the first time in the Philippines Roald Dahl’s classic story about Matilda – an amazing little girl with extraordinary intelligence and psychokinetic powers.

Now on its final weekend from December 8 – 10 at the Meralco Theater, this musical shows how little Matilda and her friends fought against the injustices of childhood with their wit, bravery and by being a little bit naughty.

Since its opening performance last November 10 at the Meralco Theater, Matilda the Musical has been highly-acclaimed by theater-goers both young and old making it one of the best theater events this season. Headlining this wonderful musical treat dubbed by Jovic Yee in an article as “the future of Philippine theater”, are three equally talented and brilliant Matildas – Esang de Torres, Felicity Kyle Napuli and Uma Naomi Martin.
 
From the outstanding performances of theater veterans and the amazing young actors who played Crunchem Hall’s revolting children to its masterfully crafted set design this musical is certainly a delightful production.  “There was not a moment that there was no anticipation, not a second that there was no excitement, not a blip where there was no engagement between audience and production”, says theater critic Sujata S. Mukhi. Another theater critic and online editor Vladimir Bunoan, described the musical as one that should easily appeal to the Harry Potter crowd with its dark and magical themes, empowered characters and imaginative visuals. Atlantis’ staging of this Dahl classic is one that captured the hearts of its audience – a powerful representation of an innocent story with a poignant charm that knows no age.

There will be no re-runs so catch Matilda The Musical on its final weekend from December 8 – 10 at the Meralco Theater. Tickets are available at Ticketworld (call 891-9999 or visit www.ticketworld.com.ph).

UAAP Season 80 Eight Memorable #GoForGreat Moments


UAAP Season 80 is down to its last one or two games with the Ateneo Blue Eagles taking a 1-0 lead in their Finals showdown with defending champions De La Salle Green Archers last (November 25), which fans witnessed on ABS-CBN Channel 2, S+A and S+A HD, or via livestreaming on sports.abs-cbn.com.

As great as these two teams have been throughout the season, we cannot ignore the gallant effort of all eight teams in representing their schools.

So before we go to Game 2 action, set to be played this Wednesday (November 29) at 3:30 pm, why don’t we sit back, relax, and take a trip down the Season 80 elimination round, to relive the moments of greatness of each team? Here are the eight #GoforGreat Moments in UAAP Season 80.

University of Santo Tomas’ First Victory

The Growling Tigers had a trying season, quite a long one if we may, as they watched themselves lose close game after close game before finally breaking through on their last playdate. It was quite a sight seeing seniors like Jeepy Faundo hugging former coach Boy Sablan at the end of the game against the UE Red Warriors while entrusting the future of the program to a youngster like Jordan Sta. Ana and to an extent, veteran swingman Regie Basibas, along with big man Steve Akomo.

UE’s Alvin Pasaol’s Record-Breaking Eruption

WATCH: Every basket from UE Red Warrior Alvin Pasaol’s 49-point performance! #UAAPSeason80 🔥🔥🔥
Posted by ABS-CBN Sports on Wednesday, October 4, 2017


Alvin Pasaol may not look like the typical basketball player as he’s quite heavy on the scales, but don’t let his looks fool you as Pasaol made quite a record for himself when he unloaded 49 huge markers on the befuddled Archers, almost single-handedly towing his UE Red Warriors to victory. His scoring binge surpassed that of UE great James Yap, as well as former NU gunner, and now Letran coach, Jeff Napa, and eclipsed even Bobby Ray Parks and Kiefer Ravena’s own scoring exploits. His 49-point outburst cemented Pasaol’s cult status among fans.

The Bulldogs may have fallen short of their Final Four aspirations, but they gave that last Final Four seat a chase that almost shook the pants out of the Tamaraws down to the last playing day of the season. Staring at a 15-point deficit as the game was midway through the third, NU star JJay Alejandro decided that there’s still much to do, and took their Final Four chances by the horn. Alejandro orchestrated a backbreaking 22-2 run in the game’s last quarter and chased the Tams out of the building with a rousing 87-84 victory to keep their elimination at bay.

UP’s Paul Desiderio’s “Atin ‘to! Papasok ‘to!” Moment. TWICE.

In a see-saw year, we saw Paul Desiderio live up to his scorer abilities and step up to the plate as his team’s new main man, especially during crunch time. His best moment, and possibly for any UAAP player this season, was when he said in their final time out with all confidence “Atin ‘to! Papasok ‘to!” against UST and then actually making the pressure-packed three point game-winner after.

Desiderio proved he is the real deal when yet again, he rose to the occasion in the dying seconds of their game against FEU with another game-winner. By that time, his in-game quote in the UST game has become his school’s unofficial slogan and is now etched in the history of UAAP forever.

FEU pushing Ateneo to the Brink of Elimination.

Coming into the season, many tagged the Tamaraws as dark horses. They have a new coach, no star players, but big name recruits like forward Arvin Tolentino. Their remaining starter was Ron Dennison who really never evoked fear on the offensive end. However, when they managed to get into the Final Four, they flat-out reminded everybody just how dangerous they really are when the team comes together. Pitted against eliminations topper Ateneo, everyone thought they would be run over. But Tolentino and guard Hubert Cani decided that they would live another day and took charge for FEU in the clutch in a moment of greatness against their former teammates.

Adamson Makes it to the Final Four

After struggling for several seasons, the Falcons finally broke through and soared again to the Final Four in UAAP Season 79. Coach Franz Pumaren’s squad duplicated their feat with another trip to the post-season this year behind Jerrick Ahanmisi, Papi Sarr, a resurgent Koko Pingoy, a much-improved Sean Manganti, and an electrifying crowd-pleaser in Tyrus Hill. The Falcons also gave defending champion De La Salle University a tough fight before bowing out of contention, showing they are a force to reckon with in the UAAP.

The Archers faced a tall order during their second round eliminations game against archrival Ateneo. After being beat in the first round by a solitary point, La Salle was hungry for revenge, but more importantly, they want to put a stop to the then unbeaten Blue Eagles to ensure that a Final Four will happen. Ben Mbala shook off every Blue Eagle big man that coach Tab Baldwin threw at him, powering the Archers to a 79-76 victory with 28 points and 19 rebounds. They did not just shattered the Eagles’ image of invincibility, they also prevented a step-ladder Final Four and went on to send the Adamson Falcons packing in just a single game.

Ateneo Tops Elimination

No one expected the Blue Eagles to tear through the competition this year. True, they might have an intact lineup and a highly-regarded coach. But it was nowhere near screaming championship. It was a work in progress. No one averaged double figures a year ago and they we’re still just going by the discipline and execution that Tab Baldwin prided himself on. But lo and behold, Thirdy Ravena discovered his superhuman powers as he led Ateneo to victory after victory, racking up 13 straight Ws with the help of Matt Nieto, rookie Gian Mamuyac, junior Isaac Go and a much-improved Chibueze Ikeh. They may have faced a scare in the Final Four, but there’s no denying that as they pulled themselves up from the grave in the dying minutes of the rubbermatch against FEU, these guys are already great in their own rights.

As we marvel at the action and highlights of the 80th season of the country’s premier collegiate league, the scintillating Finals action resumes for more moments of greatness from the athletes who play their hearts out as Game 2 is set on Wednesday (November 29) LIVE from the mecca of Philippine championships, the SMART Araneta Coliseum at 3:30 pm on S+A, S+A HD, and via livestream on sports.abs-cbn.com.
