OPPO empowers the Youth through Unilab Foundation’s Ideas Positive

 Empowering the Filipino youth in building healthier communities


International smartphone brand OPPO believes in the power of the youth. With this in mind, the brand conducted its first CSR activity for 2018. OPPO Philippines teamed up with Ideas Positive, the country’s premier youth engagement program for healthier communities. Ideas Positive is a program of Unilab Foundation whose mission is to build a healthier Philippines.

OPPO Philippines donated OPPO F5 Youth units to the youth teams during the boot camp of at Camp Allen, Santa Cruz, Laguna. OPPO phones will be used by the participants in sharing their journey and capturing the best moments and experiences with their communities. The goal is to help the youth spread the word about the innovative health solutions that Ideas Positive are implementing in their communities through social media.

“We are grateful that OPPO partnered with Ideas Positive. For the past years, majority of our participants use their own mobile phones in documenting their projects. However, not all of them own good quality smartphones that can take quality photos and videos. OPPO’s support this year is a big help to the youth teams in documenting their project implementation,” said Alfred Dicto, Project Lead for Ideas Positive.

Already on its eighth year, Ideas Positive holds a nationwide competition where youth teams can develop innovative solutions that address health issues in the community level. Among hundreds of entries, seventeen teams were chosen this year to participate in a three-day boot camp, where they learned the basics of project management, leadership, and communication. Each team will receive up to Php100,000 in funding to implement their project with their chosen community.

“OPPO believes that the youth plays a huge role in nation-building. We are glad to partner with Ideas Positive in supporting and empowering the Filipino youth,” said Eason De Guzman, OPPO Philippines’ PR Manager. “We have seen how enthusiastic and passionate the participants are in helping the communities. We hope that with OPPO’s support, the teams will be able to capture their best moments and share their wonderful stories and experiences with their communities,” de Guzman added.

The teams with the best health outcomes will be announced in August 2018, and will be awarded with cash prizes and smartphones from OPPO Philippines.

Hit fantaserye continues to conquer primetime…

Matteo Guidicelli, Liza Soberano, Enrique Gil, and Sofia Andres

The lead stars of the ABS-CBN’s newest hit fantaserye “Bagani”– Liza Soberano, Matteo Guidicelli, Sofia Andres, Makisig Morales, and Enrique Gil– expressed their heartfelt gratitude to all the viewers who continue to support their epic journey during the press conference held for the program held last Thursday (March 15) at the Dolphy Theater.

The cast sent their warm messages of thanks to all Kapamilyas who watched them on free to air TV, online via iWant TV, and worldwide via The Filipino Channel that made the series a consistent top-rater on weeknights and a consistent trending topic on social media.

This week, the battle among the five tribes of Sansinukob begins. After Dakil (Christian Vasquez) threatened to kill Lakas’ (Enrique) mother, Lila (Ana Abad Santos), the young warrior was left with no choice but to betray Ganda (Liza) and let the desert region conquer the farm region.

The trade region, meanwhile, was about to conquer the farm region when the former found out that it had already been invaded by the desert region. Lakam opted to stage a fake rescue instead, making them the heroes in the eyes of the farmers.

On the other hand, a misunderstanding occurred between the forest and sea regions, stirred by the taga-kalakal, causing the two to fight each other.

As all the chaos happened, the deity of Sansinukob, Apo (Diether Ocampo) and his brother Sarimaw (Ryan Eigenmann), watched over them.

Will Lakas have the chance to explain his side to Ganda? Which tribes will win the battles? What will Apo and Sarimaw do after the battles among the tribes?

Don’t miss “Bagani,”weeknights after “FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano” on ABS-CBN or ABS-CBN HD (SkyCable ch 167). Catch up on the show’s latest episodes on iWanTV orskyondemand.com.ph for Sky subscribers. For more updates, follow @starcreatives on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

Ex Batallion Pumirma Ng Kanilang Kauna-unahang Endorsement Para sa RRJ


Hindi na talaga mapigilan ang pagsikat ng Ex Batallion matapos sumikat ang kanilang kantang “Hayaan Mo Sila,” na tumabo ng ilang milyong views sa Youtube. Lalo pa’t hawak na sila ng actress-comedian na si Aiai Delas Alas bilang kanilang bagong manager.


Nagsimula daw ang lahat nang nakipag collaborate si Aiai sa Ex Batallion para sa kanyang isang kanta. Magmula daw noon ay gusto na raw tulungan ni Aiai ang Ex Batallion na makapasok sa mainstream. Matatandaan kasi na nakilala ang grupo sa pagiging underground nito.

Dahil nga sa malaking tulong ng kanilang bagong manager na si Aiai ay nagkaroon ito ng kanilang kauna-unahang endorsement, ang RRJ, isa itong sikat na clothing lines at apparels na bagay na bagay sa get-up ng mga Ex Battalion members.

Hindi daw makapaniwala ang grupo sa success na kanilang natatamasa ngayon,  lalo pa’t manager na nila ang sikat na komedyanteng si Aiai. Bukod daw kasi sa madami pang nakapilang endorsement para sa kanila ay magkakaroon sila ng concert sa isang malaking venue dito sa bansa. May plano ring dalhin ni Aiai ang grupo sa abroad para mapasaya an gating mga kababayan doon.


Sa contract signing ng Ex-Batallion para sa RRJ ay nakapanayam ng ilang press at bloggers ang grupo tungkol sa success na kanilang natatamasa ngayon at ito ang kanilang pahayag, “Laking pasasalamat namin kay Ms. Ai dahil kinupkop nya kami para nyang mga anak.” Paniguradong marami pang aabangan sa Ex Batallion at malamang ay mas madalas  na rin natin silang makita sa ilang billboards, telebisyon o maybe sa sinehan dahil gusto rin ng grupong makagawa ng pelikula.

The Cool PBA Barangay Ginebra Player Scottie Thompson Signed As an Ambassador of “Icy Cool Shake”

Damang-dama na natin ang init ng panahon ngayon dahil sa Summer season na. Halos lahat tayo ay naghahanap ng malamig, mapa lugar man, pagkain or inumin upang maibsan ang init na ating nararamdaman.

Kaya nga iba’t-ibang business ang nagsusulputan sa ngayon, tulad na lamang ng “Icy Cool Shake” na talaga naman papatok sa masa. Mula sa salitang Cool Shake, isa itong refreshing drinks na siguradong magpapa lamig sa inyong pakiramdam ngayong summer. May iba’t-ibang flavor ang Icy Cool Shake, tulad ng taro, ube, cookies n’ cream, buko pandan, melon, buko, mango, strawberry at marami pang iba. Hindi ito ordinaryong shake na yelo lang na dinurog ang halo, ang masarap sa Icy Cooler na ito ay homemade ice cream ang dinudurog para mas maging malasa ang shake na i-se-serve sa customer.


Pagmamay-ari ito ng isang Cavitena na si Ms. Icy Mendoza, isang accountant na naging successful entrepreneur. Sinabi ni Ms. Icy na  isang taon bago nya na-perfect ang pagtimpla ng flavour nang  nasabing Icy Cool Shake bago nya ito ginawang business. Ang maganda pa rito ay bukas ang Icy Cool Shake sa mga gustong mag franchise nang nasabing negosyo sa halagang abot kaya. Sa halagang p230k lang daw ay maari ka nang mag franchise ng Icy Cool Shake, p80k para sa franchise fee at p150k para sa package ng produkto, food cart, mga gamit na gagamitin, man power trainings at iba pa.


Talaga namang bigatin ang Icy Cool Shake dahil bigatin ang kauna-unahang celebrity na mag-eendorso ng kanilang produkto. Ang sikat na Barangay Ginebra Basketball Player na si Scottie Thompson, na kilalang cool na cool sa pagdating sa paglalaro sa basketball court. Sa katatapos contract signing ni Scottie bilang ambassador ng Icy Cool Shake ay sinabi nya na “Bagay na bagay sa akin ang produktong ito dahil isa akong cool na tao. Isa pa, isa rin akong business minded na tao, kaya malay nyo mag franchise din ako ng Icy Cool Shake.”
