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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Watch Alab Pilipinas vs. Singapore Slingers ABL Match on ABS-CBN S+A at 8PM, November 29


Alab Pilipinas faces ASEAN Basketball League (ABL) powerhouse, the 2016-2017 season’s finalists Singapore Slingers this Wednesday (November 29) at the Sta. Rosa Multi-Purpose Complex in Sta. Rosa, Laguna. 

Fans can catch the game LIVE at 8pm on S+A and S+A HD.

Bannered by 2016-2017 ABL MVP Bobby Ray Parks, and world imports Reggie Okosa and Ivan Johnson, Alab looks to feed off from the energy of an always-packed Sta. Rosa gym to put a dent on the Slingers’ record as well as get an early upper hand in their budding rivalry.

Alab stood toe-to-toe with their Singaporean counterparts last season, splitting the four games they played. Another interesting note in this matchup is that this season, former Slinger Josh Urbiztondo is playing for the Philippine side after signing up with Alab this year.

The Philippine team hopes to make a deeper run in the new season after falling short of their objective last year: to win a championship. Last November 19 at the MoA Arena, it paraded its new recruits in veterans like Urbiztondo, former DLSU Green Archer Rico Maierhofer, and Cebuano hotshot Dondon Hontiveros alongside new head coach Jimmy Alapag to start its campaign.

Alab almost beat the defending champion Hong Kong Eastern Long Lions last in that game, 89-92, with Okosa leading the charge for the home team with 28 points and 12 rebounds with fellow import and former Atlanta Hawk Ivan Johnson and Parks with 17 markers each. The three will take the cudgels for Alab once more to break into the win column against the Slingers, who defeated CSL Knights Indonesia 77-66 in their home opener behind world import Xavier Alexander, slotman Ryan Wright, and point guard AJ Mandani.

ABL’s exciting home and away format of the young league has endeared itself to fans in every place it visits, packing gyms to the roof as everyone is excited to see the stars from other parts of the Asian region visit their own hardcourt. Filipinos fans get an additional treat as some of our homegrown players are playing as imports in other teams such as the Slingers’ AJ Mandani, the Long Lions’ Christian Standhardinger, and Formosa Dreamers’ James Forrester to name a few.

Don’t miss the festivities at Alab Pilipinas’ home game against 2016-2017 ABL finalists Singapore Slingers in the continuation of the ABL action this Wednesday (November 29) LIVE from the Sta. Rosa Multi-Purpose Complex in Sta. Rosa, Laguna on on S+A and S+A HD at 8 pm.

During the event, mixologist Kalel Demetrio aka Liquid Maestro will serve exclusive and exciting Locally concoctions, even as hip-hop artist and R&B singer-songwriter Quest, together with rising singer-guitarist Keiko Necesario, aims to entertain attendees with an evening of fine OPM.

The Locally Fruit Truck is our modern take on the ice cream truck - which makes us jump for joy when you see it on the road or hear its bells and music play. We want Filipinos to feel that way - but at the same time celebrating our local fruits and juices, and basically just celebrating being a Pinoy,” said Gretchen King, group product manager-specialty F&B at NutriAsia.

The Locally Fruit Truck will serve free local juices made from homegrown fruits from different regions, exclusive Pinoy mixes co-created with expert liquid chef Liquido Maestro, and other fun Pinoy treats like no other.”

King reminds everyone to watch out for the Locally Fruit Truck’s upcoming stops in the metro and keep an eye for the special treats and other surprises that Locally is prepping for them.

Locally has caught everyone’s attention not only due to its bright-colored and creative packaging but more so because of its fun indigenous flavors. 

Now, we want to bring this unique experience closer to more Filipinos by rolling out the Locally Fruit Truck starting with this launch, like how our classic ice cream trucks brought us a refreshing kind of happiness and nostalgia on its wheels,” King added.

Local fruits squeezed to produce Locally Blended Juice Drinks are sourced from different parts of the country, namely: tamarind from Batangas, Pangasinan, and Bulacan; calamansi from Isabela, Tarlac, and Nueva Ecija; dalandan from Laguna and Mindoro; guyabano from Cebu and Misamis Occidental; pomelo from Davao; and siniguelas from the Negros provinces.

Aside from its Blended Juice Drinks, Locally also offers Merci Buco, the first Eco-Certified and pure organic coconut water in the Philippines. Merci Buco also comes in buco pandan and buco lychee variants.

The Locally Fruit Truck will go around Metro Manila’s top food parks, resto hubs, malls, and transport terminals. For updates and inquiries, visit the official Locally Facebook and Instagram pages at www.facebook.com/LocallyPH and www.instagram.com/locally_ph or email locallyph@gmail.com.
