Our small family loves travelling and we rely much on our accessories so we have all the things we need handy. For several months, I have been searching for a water bottle that is multi-purpose. Those that are readily available are made of plastic and admittedly price is quite steep.

There was one time when we went grocery shopping at S&R where we came across Contigo brand beverage holders. For a price of more than php1,000 with two beverage holders I thought, why not give it a try.

The primary reason I bought it was out of stinginess. Getting two beverage holders for a price of one is not bad. But let me tell you what I really love about it.


Stainless steel. The material doesn't hold that much of untoward smell and stain when you place a colored beverage in it. It doesn't have also the danger of ingesting dangers from plastics.

Vacuum Technology. It holds cold beverages up to 12hours depending on where you store it. When the holder is stored at room temperature, it stores cold water pretty much longer. But one instance that when the husband left it inside the car, the cold beverage wasn't cold anymore after 4hours. As for the hot beverage, it is very efficient to keep hot beverages really hot not unless you release hot vapors.

Easy to clean. The beverage bottle comes in two pieces only. So you will only pour the beverage in and close it with its cap. Its dishwasher safe too. You can ran over the spout some hot water with a little soap suds and voila, its clean again!

Autoseal lock. This is a feature that I have seen in some of beverage bottles. But this bottle comes with two locks. One is to ensure that there will be no spills and you can have control when drinking which is located on the side. Another lock is located on top of the mug for securing just in case the autoseal press button was accidentally pressed. Pretty genius huh!?

Easy to use. The beverage bottle comes with the container and cap which makes it easy to use especially for those busy individuals. You will not go looking for missing bottle covers anymore.

Overall, I am very much happy of what I bought. Serves it purpose very well for an affordable price too.  I just wish there is a larger bottle to those who stay longer outdoors. It also comes with different colors to chose from. This product is strongly recommended!

Don’t have the time to visit actual stores to look for the best phone that fits your lifestyle? Worry no more because Lazada Philippines, the country’s one-stop shopping destination, houses just the best brands in the market—with a never-before-seen Cherry Mobile CUBIX!


Cosmic Technologies, Inc., the creator of Cherry Mobile, introduces its first exclusive online brand CUBIX which will add to Lazada’s complete product portfolio. The brand is set to launch on June 26 at 12 noon and will be sold at P4,490 exclusively in Lazada.  According to InancBalci, CEO of Lazada Philippines, this year is the perfect time to introduce new phones that set the standard for an upscale lifestyle, with an added shopping convenience without the added price.

“The number of mobile subscriptions is set to overtake the global population this year,” Balci said. “Now that we are more connected than ever, the only challenge left for most Filipinos is to find the perfect mobile companion that can handle all their lifestyle needs.”

The TNS Mobile Life reported that 54 percent of Filipino consumers consider mobile phones as their most important piece of technology. While most of them had a change in purchasing priorities since they now buy phones based on the right features that enhance personal experience, Balci said that they can better complement this user experience with a sophisticated phone design.

Balci added, “While there is a growing number of people looking for more affordable phones that promise the same—or even better—phone quality, we can offer a whole lot more than what they expect with CUBIX.” Cosmic Technologies partnered with Lazada for retailing CUBIX to the online shopping site’s customers with an aim to increase its target customers, especially those who are looking for their next target phones.

It's lunchtime and time for the kids to watch their favorite show--Hi5. The quintet group has been the kids' favorite for four years already. The colorful outfit and the lively show make it more appealing for the kids to watch. Mind you, my four-year-old son has memorized most of their songs already. I am quite surprised that he sings with them in some of their episodes. Who wouldn't anyway?



Fely Irvine, Fil-Aussie Hi5 Member 

The popular Australian brand has already been making wide noise here in the Philippines. For several years, they have been holding concerts, which, I must admit failed to take the kids just yet. But you know what? I wouldn’t fret anymore as one of our local channel—TV5, has brought the popular brand here in the Philippines with its local version! Kiddie show hasn’t been more this exciting! They will still be singing their popular songs but with a little twist. Since they will be airing it here in the Philippines, it will be in Filipino and English for the kids to be able to widely interact more with them.

The popular kiddie show has encouraged my kids to sing, dance and be more imaginative in their play. It makes everyday more fun in anyway they can. It also helps build the vocabulary of my kids, which is good, and sometimes we wonder where they get the new words, only to find out that they have been watching the show all along. Now that it will be on local version, it will be high time for the kids to learn Filipino language in a fun way. It will also be easier for me to teach them as it will have more illustrations and imaginative just the way it has been.

The Hi5 Philippines cast is ready to set every house with a lot of energy starting on June 15, 2015 at 8:30 am and in the afternoon at 3:45 pm at TV5. Good news Hi5 Philippines fans! The cast; Gerard Pagunsan, Aira Binas, Rissey Reyes, Alex Reyes, and Fred Lo is inviting you all together with a special guest, Hi5 Filipino-Australian member Fely Irvine to a meet and greet at SM Megamall on Saturday, June 13 at 1:00pm. Entrance is free but please make sure to come early!






           Energizer is set to launch its first open run on June 27, 2015 where over 3,000 runners are expected to light up the streets of Filinvest City in Alabang. This is part of Energizer’s ongoing commitment to share positivenergy with the children of Bantay Bata 163.

According to Claire Guevarra, senior brand manager of Energizer, the company’s partnership with Bantay Bata 163 allowed them to further their thrust in giving back to the community.

“"It is important to put self-improvement as your daily goal in life, but stretching your arms to further help others is one of the best indicators that we have lived fully. With our partnership with Bantay Bata 163, we were able to realize this, and we will continue to engage ourselves in a partnership that nurtures both the brand and the beneficiaries it embraces." said Guevarra. 

         As an open run, the participants are encouraged to keep going and run as far as they can within the 2 hours given time.  For every 3k loop that the runners will run, P100 will be donated to Bantay Bata 163 as part of its operation and medical treatment funds. With the expected runners, the Energizer Night Race Manila 2015 aims to raise P1,000,000.00 with the help of the participants who will run within the 2 hours given time.

According to Vincent Lizo, Energizer Philippines’ business director, the first open run bears truth that no competition is needed if we want to help improve the lives of children. 

"Being generous is all about benefiting others more than yourself”, Lizo said. “For its part, Energizer, as a company, will recognize every runner of this event as a winner since no medal nor any form of special recognitions are needed to fulfill our responsibilities to the community," added Lizo.

Meanwhile, MJ Tiquia, Energizer brand activations manager, shared that the company will offer a different running experience to its loyal participants. This year’s race kit is priced at 700 pesos covering any distance, which includes a race singlet, race bib, Energizer headlight,  Energizer cap, and Schick Xtreme 3 Razor. It will also provide access to pre and post race activities, which will feature different bands to provide fun and entertainment. 

“"The runners’ time will be monitored through the radio frequency identification (RFID), which tracks every 3k loop a runner makes. Kilometer markers in the race route are available to serve as the runners’ references,"” Tiquia said. “"For this event, runners will have to run as many loops as they can to keep on going for positivenergy."

A battery meter will light up every time a runner finishes a three-kilometer un. This battery meter will compile all the three kilometer runs every runner makes until it reaches a one million target. This will be put on view through an LED-display onstage, and in the start and finish arc.

“"We would like this year’s night race to be the participants’ source of fulfillment since they are able to radiate positivenergy to the people involved," Tiquia said.

She added, “"Truly, this will not only be a venue of fun and excitement, but more importantly, a source of hope for the children of Bantay Bata 163."

“"We are inviting everyone to come and join us in this event. This is a good venue to bond with families and friends through a healthy activity, and at the same time help in the common cause for the children of Bantay Bata 163," Guevarra concluded. 


Registration includes both online and through official registration sites Reebok Filinvest, Trinoma and Megamall, RUNNR BGC and Royal Sporting House Glorietta. Online registration and details of event are through Energizer’s official website atwww.energizer.com.ph,  www.Facebook.com/EnergizerPH, and race partnerwww.pepsquadevents.com.


Decades after travelling trunks have evolved to become the efficient, ergonomic, durable suitcases we know today, jetsetters can’t help but think that style was compromised to make way for convenience.

Not that it could be helped. Truth is, anyone who has travelled, for business or otherwise, has had to give up some degree of elegance and luxury—that’s just the reality of security checks and travelling hassles.

Of course, there are brands that claim to offer modern functionality without abandoning design and heritage. And because both adjectives get thrown around casually to catch the attention of discerning jetsetters, the true arbiters of luxury are going all out to show what makes them worth your time.

Hartmann, with a heritage that spans as far back as 1877, has created some of the most impressive travel bags in existence and continues to do so, over a century later.

The importance of luggage that can stand the rigors of your frequent jaunts across the globe is paramount; but looking good as you make your way from one point to another is just as important.

Hartmann’s collection stands as a testament that a thorough understanding of timeless design and luxurious detailing, anchored on a legacy of delivering products that make journeys more elegant, can deliver exquisite pieces. And over a hundred years after they started to do so, their heritage of craftsmanship is still evident.

It’s all in the details—carefully hewn leather painstakingly hand-stitched together, meticulously designed bags fit for travel, exceptionally crafted luggage that will stand the test of time. Quite simply, Hartmann is designed to exude elegance and style, while still providing complete functionality and comfort.

For the truly discerning, these can only be found in a brand that quietly boasts an intuitive understanding of what travellers seek and need; built steadily through the years as they catered to the desires of jetsetters.

“It’s about making a statement about your sense of practicality and functionality as well as your eye for quality and detail—and Hartmann is proof of all these, all in one beautifully designed piece,” ends Michael Corpuz, Marketing and Sales Manager, Samsonite Philippines, Inc.
