World’s #1 Leadership Thinker and Global Coach says 3 minutes daily is all that’s needed to change your life

Dr. Marshall Goldsmith 

Even the world’s top leadership coach admits he needs a helping hand to navigate through life and the decisions he has to make. And that’s perfectly okay.

Dr. Marshall Goldsmith, a best-selling author and the world’s #1 leadership thinker and executive coach from the USA, said that it’s OK to ask for help from others. While most people veer away from asking for help, Goldsmith actually urges everyone to get over the idea of being able to do everything alone.

“I do this exercise daily with a peer coach. I have someone call me to listen to me ask myself questions I wrote and provide the answers I wrote every day. Why I do this? I’m Marshall Goldsmith and I’m too cowardly to do this by myself,” said Goldsmith in a podcast with EntreLeadership.

Dubbed as the Daily Question Process, it requires an individual to ask themselves a series of questions every day. The 3-minute exercise can help people change their lives for the better when done regularly. While the skepticism is expected, Goldsmith said that most people usually quit the exercise after two weeks – not because they failed, but because it has already impacted them.

“I’m too undisciplined. I need help, and that’s ok. I know how difficult it is to go,” said Goldsmith. The leadership coach adds that once there’s an admission for the need for help, life gets better.

The Daily Question Process requires the individual to write several questions on a spreadsheet, with each question representing a behavior that is important yet often easy to neglect. The questions usually begin with “did I do my best to…” and must be answerable with a yes or no.

The process helps the individual to confront how they actually live out their values every day. The mere process of writing the questions allows for introspection on what really matters to them.
Hailed by Harvard Business Review as the “World’s #1 Leadership Thinker”, Dr. Goldsmith has had more than 40 years of successfully coaching CEO’s from many of the world’s most renowned organizations such as Ford, Pfizer, GSK, World Bank, Toyota, Goldman Sachs & Co. He is also an author of numerous #1 bestsellers, with the latest book “Triggers” as #1 New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestseller.

Dr. Marshall Goldsmith will headline a two-city CEO, HR and Senior Leaders conference in Asia this October, with Manila as his last stop on October 26, 2018. He will be joined by top coaching gun Dr. Peter Chee, and master trainer and chief coach Serely Alcaraz. The leadership conference is organized by ITD, the global leadership development expert.  For more information and registration, call ITD World Philippines at +632 887 7428 or email at

Comedy Queen AiAi delas Alas signs up for "Bulalo World"

Comedy Queen AiAi delas Alas shakes hands with "Bulalo World" owner Mr. Gil S. Nemeño

The Comedy Queen AiAi delas Alas never runs out of good vibes, blessings and good news! Just recently, she has signed up with "Bulalo World," held at Ayala Malls Feliz. For those who are not aware of what "Bulalo" is to us, Filipinos, here's a brief info... "Bulalo" is a beef and/or beef shank with bone marrow soup with lots of vegetables like cabbage, pechay with onions and sweet corn. This is considered to be the Pinoy's comfort food. Originated from Batangas province, "Bulalo" is one of the most popular and well-loved Filipino dish. It is best eaten when paired with "Crispy Fried Tamales," which is also abundant in the Southern province of Luzon, Batangas. 

Mr. Gil S. Nemeño, owner of "Bulalo World," has shared to us a brief story of their resto... 
It started some three and a half years ago in Isetan Recto, it had survived few failures before it has finally been stabilized and know as the "Bulalo World." The two predecessors were "Nik Nok Manok" and "Lumpia World." 

There is the risk of the bone marrow supply that they had to take into consideration, but they felt that there's always a way for everything if you want to succeed and offer good business to clients, specifically the "Bulalo." Some of their supplies come from Ireland, France, and Argentina. 

Ms. AiAi delas Alas was happily signing up her contract with "Bulalo World" with the execs Chairman Ed Lunas, Mr. Gil S. Nemeño (owner) and Ms. Abegail Tan 

Ms. AiAi delas Alas has inspired the "Bulalo World" executives of her life story and triumph. She started as a sales lady first in Cinderella Department Store before then everything followed and the rest is all part of the history. They are also very confident and proud to say that, with Ms. Ai as their brand ambassadress, from 25 branches... they hope that "Bulalo World" will be rtye next big success story in the fast food industry and business. 

The contract signing that transpired between them and Ms. Aiai is only the first phase and beginning of their greater success. They are targeting to open up 100 plus more branches this year. 

On the other hand, Ms. AiAi was very thankful that she is now the new face of "Bulalo World." During her speech, she did mention that, "Ang 'Bulalo World' ang nakapagpabalik sa 'kin sa pagkain ng meat." As we all know, Ms. Ai is now a vegetarian and she only eats white meat but with "Bulalo World," she admitted that she really did like the taste and even said that she always believes and uses everything or every products she endorses. 

She even added, "Kaya nang natikman ko 'tong Bulalo World, especially kasi Batangueña rin ako, so alam ko kung ano talaga 'yung masarap, tsaka lalo na 'yung tawilis din masarap kaya super sarap ang "Bulalo World!" 

Chairman Ed Lunas, Mrs. Jojie Nemeño,  Brand Ambassadress Ms. AiAi delas Alas and President/owner Gil S. Nemeño 

Congratulations to you once again Ms. AiAi delas Alas!!! 

Hope for more blessings to come! 

The full meal that they' ve served. Bulalo World's famous Bulalo with Crispy Fried Tawilis partnered with Four Seasons Iced Tea and Coffee Jelly.

Latest branch of Bulalo World located at the third floor in Ayala Malls Feliz, Pasig City.

With the company’s vision of bringing world-class Internet to Filipino families, PLDT has launched its first ever PLDT Home Prepaid WiFi, an affordable service that makes it easier than ever for more families to enjoy their online activities in the comfort of their home.

The PLDT Home Prepaid WiFi is a plug and play device that instantly connects you to the Internet. Once plugged into a power source, it can simultaneously connect up to 5 WiFi-ready devices, such as a smartphone, tablet, or laptop, to high-speed Internet.
Unlike the regular Pocket WiFi which is meant for users on the go, the PLDT Home Prepaid WiFi is specially designed for home use as it utilizes the LTE 700MHZ band, a low frequency that easily penetrates houses and buildings. This way, the PLDT Home Prepaid WiFi is able to deliver high-speed Internet indoors – whether in the living room, kitchen, or bedroom.

PLDT’s pinakasulit Home Internet

Aside from being affordable, PLDT Home Prepaid WiFi also lets you enjoy PLDT Home’s pinakasulit Internet with the Home Boost 15, which comes with 1GB valid for 1 day for only Php15. You can enjoy Home Boost 15 as an add-on to promos like Home Boost 50 or up, for greater savings.

With the PLDT Prepaid Home Wifi, families can learn together and research for school; bond by streaming videos and music; stay active on their favorite apps; or catch up with loved ones and friends on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter – all in the comfort of their homes.

And because it is prepaid, there’s no need to worry about monthly bill payments, lock-in period, or uncontrolled data usage because customers simply have to load it up and register to promos that suit their family’s needs.

Powered by the Philippines’ fastest mobile Internet
The PLDT Home Prepaid WiFi is powered Smart’s LTE network, the Philippines’s fastest mobile Internet, according to the latest Speedtest® report of Ookla, the global leader in Internet testing and analysis.

In its analysis of over 2 million user-generated tests on LTE devices in the Philippines from Q1 to Q2 of 2018, Ookla said Smart provided the country’s fastest LTE connection with average download speeds of 17.25 Mbps, and average upload speeds of 7.65 Mbps.
On the other hand, UK-based mobile analytics firm OpenSignal also recognized Smart for having the country’s fastest LTE network, bestowing the company four citations in its March 2018 report: best in 4G LTE download speed; best in overall download speed; best 4G latency performance; and best 3G latency performance.
High-speed Smart LTE now covers major urban areas including Metro Manila, Rizal, Cebu, and Davao, and top sites in Bacolod, Baguio, Baler, Batanes, Bohol, Cagayan de Oro, Iloilo, Laguna, Leyte, Palawan, Sagada, Sarangani, and Zamboanga, among others.

Get the PLDT Home Prepaid WiFi with FREE 10GB for only P1,995

The PLDT Home Prepaid WiFi is now available at all PLDT Stores and retailers nationwide and comes with FREE 10GB, valid for 7 days, for a one-time payment of only Php1,995.

FINTQ’s online lending platform Lendr also makes it easier for customers to get hold of the PLDT Home Prepaid WiFi via affordable installment payments.

With Lendr, customers can buy the device for an initial low cash-out of Php495, followed by six weekly payments of Php370, which can be paid through any Smart Padala center, Bayad Center, ECPay, and 7-Eleven outlets.

Creamline Cool Smashers: Sweeping the nation with ‘good vibes’

PVL Season 2 champs share their love for fans and their Creamline family

Amidst a cheering sea of pink, the Creamline Cool Smashers swept the Mall of Asia Arena Court with their combined prowess and trademark good vibes to clinch the coveted championship title of the Premier Volleyball League (PVL) Season 2 Reinforced Conference.

Led by team captain Alyssa Valdez, the Cool Smashers bested the PayMaya High Flyers and sealed the deal after only two games in a best-of-three finals round. In addition to the title, players Valdez, Jia Morado, and Michelle Gumabao received individual awards: best open spiker, best setter and finals MVP, and best opposite spiker, respectively.

“This championship is one of the biggest rewards we’ve received as a team who worked hard, trained hard, and really wanted to bring home the trophy for our Rebisco family and our fans,” shared Valdez.

One big family                       
The Creamline Cool Smashers credit their triumph in the recently concluded PVL to something more than the expert guidance of Coach Anusorn “Tai” Bundit and the individual skills of the players.

“Each member of the team is focused, driven, and hungry to win but we still enjoyed our time together because we loved what we were doing,” Morado said. “The Cool Smashers is my first pro club and it has been my childhood wish to find a team that inspires and takes care of me while I pursue my dreams in the court. Not every player gets it right the first time and I’m so lucky and thankful to be with the Rebisco-Creamline family.”

“I’m also thankful to the Rebisco-Creamline family for believing in me and the team. Without that support and the camaraderie that we’ve built, victory wouldn’t taste as sweet as it does now,” said Gumabao.

The Rebisco-Creamline family that the team found extended beyond the court and the training sessions—in fact, it is a big family that includes all of the snack giant’s employees, from executives to those on the production floor responsible for whipping up Rebisco’s trademark treats such as the Rebisco Sandwich, Hansel, Fudgee Barr, Choco Mucho, Ding Dong, Judge, and Creamline bars, cones, and tubs.

“Rebisco has always supported our employees in breaking their daily routines through sports and other physical activities,” said Noric T. Ng, Rebisco VP of Operations. “Everybody, from management to the factory employees, was excited when the Cool Smashers got into the PVL finals and we wanted to be here to support them all the way. This championship is the manifestation of our 55-year-old culture of teamwork, collaboration, and camaraderie. By working together for a common goal and doing this every day in every aspect of our lives, we have accomplished so much and have a lot to celebrate for our 55th anniversary.”

Buoyed by good vibes and the support of the entire Rebisco-Creamline family and their fans, the Creamline Cool Smashers are grateful that all the hard work, dedication, and sacrifice that led to their victory.

Mean spikes, generous hearts
As part of the Rebisco-Creamline family’s “champinkship” celebration, the Cool Smashers hosted the first-ever Creamline Good Vibes Day as a way to express their gratitude to their fans.

Held at the Buffalo Wild Wings restaurant in Capitol Commons, the event brought the team closer to their adoring fans through good food, fun activities, and a meet-and-greet session. The players even gamely answered fan questions and honored requests for songs, messages, and selfies.

The highlight of this special event, however, is a generous gesture from the Rebisco-Creamline family. Pursuing its advocacy of fostering youth development through sports, the Cool Smashers and the company donated volleyball sporting equipment to ten beneficiary public schools which participated in the Rebisco Volleyball League 18 & Under.

Team captain Valdez presented a symbolic volleyball to Metropolitan Sports and Events Managing Director Freddie Infante, one of Philippine volleyball’s leading figures.

The company is also spearheading the Rebisco Volleyball League, an under-18 tourney where 12 high school teams battle it out for the title. Another facet of Rebisco’s youth development advocacy is the Volley Fiesta, a series of volleyball clinics for young aspiring athletes in rural communities, with drills led by Valdez, Morado, Gumabao, and the entire Cool Smashers team.

“Volley Fiesta and Creamline Ice Cream Fiesta were borne out of our desire to spread good vibes at the barangay level,” said Rebisco Category Manager Chiara Fojas-Ferrer. “Not only do we pursue our advocacy of youth development through these events but we also get to bring Creamline products closer to communities and bring a smile to their faces through affordable ice cream, fun games, and the presence of their volleyball idols.”

“It’s so inspiring to be part of Creamline’s mission to spread good vibes across the Philippines through volleyball. The team is blessed to have the opportunity to share our knowledge and experience in the sport and to see young athletes in the provinces learn and dream just like we did once. So to all the future volleyball superstars we’ll meet in this year’s Volley Fiesta, hihintayin namin kayo dito sa Manila for your turn to represent the Rebisco family and even the country,” concluded Valdez

Ronnie Henares and Jojit Paredes are back together in rare reunion concert “Twofus…Reunion of Friends”

It will be the 70’s all over again on September 1, 2018, 8 pm at the Theater at Solaire Resort and Casino when Ronnie Henares and Jojit Paredes get together for a one-night rare reunion in “Twofus…Reunion of Friends.”
    Today’s audiences instantly recognize Ronnie Henares as a mainstay in the popular comedy series “Pepito Manaloto” where he surprised people with his comic flair. Ronnie is also widely recognized as the manager in tandem with wife Ida, responsible for transforming steel-throated “Ang Bagong Kampeon” champ Chona Velasquez into the classy musical superstar Regine Velasquez. Others developed under their Primeline Management & Production, Inc., were Lani Misalucha, Zsa Zsa Padilla, Nanette Inventor, Tux, Gino Padilla and the list goes on.
    Jojit, on the other hand, has since opted for a quieter life in the States.
    But in the 70’s, Ronnie and Jojit were the musical heartthrobs of the day. They were, in a manner of speaking, the equivalent of Leif Garrett and Rex Smith in the Philippines, with throngs of screaming and swooning fans.
How it started
    Close buddies from their La Salle grade school days, Ronnie Henares and Jojit Paredes together with Jim Paredes became lead vocalists of “Les Violents,” a high school band formed by the Paredes cousins.  The band was formed to enter a "Battle of the Bands" competition sponsored by De La Salle High School. They won Second Prize. “The high school band was the start of my musical partnership with Ronnie,” recalls Jojit. “We were invited to perform at all sorts of parties and gatherings.”
    One of those gatherings was a weekend at the Laurel beach house in Matabungkay, Batangas upon the invitation of Lynnie Laurel. In the midst of the merriment, Ronnie and Jojit grabbed their acoustic guitars and started singing for the guests who were impressed by the two’s harmonious vocal blending.
    The Twofus (pronounced as “Two of Us”) was born.  
    With boyish good looks and (social) class-transcending appeal, the Twofus would become a big hit among college and university campuses, the invites coming initially from exclusive private schools and later from public schools as well.
    Soon, Ronnie and Jojit would invade radio, print, and television. They shuttled back and forth gigs on prime time TV, musicals, live shows, road tours, concerts, and radio shows. When the Twofus was introduced to Tower Productions, they turned composers for the first time, writing the movie theme for the fan flick starring Tina Revilla “Funny Girl.”   
    Ronnie and Jojit then became part of the highest rating prime time show that time, “D’ Sensations” which featured Vilma Santos and Bobot Mortiz. “One afternoon after a radio interview at the program of Ike Lozada in ABS-CBN, he brought us to meet Tony Santos, the famous director of the ‘D’ Sensations,’ the no. 1 primetime TV show at that time,” remembers Jojit. “Direk Tony Santos asked us if we could do an impromptu song and he’d put us on live. We took a deep breath and went for it. At first the audience fell silent as acoustic guitars were not yet amplified and the boom mike was picking up peripheral noise. When we finished the song, the audience went wild demanding more.”
    For a couple of years, Sunday evenings televiewers were enthralled by the Twofus. In record time, Ronnie and Jojit cemented their status as national teen idols.
    But the time to pursue different paths eventually came. Ronnie Henares went into hosting, singing, dancing, acting, directing, producing, and managing the careers of future superstars. Jojit Paredes enjoyed a solo caeer as an actor, singer, and recording arist until he decide to explore new adventures in America.  
The road back
    Some good teams, however, never lose their appeal.
    Ronnie and Jojit got together last year and recalled how successful the US reunion of Twofus was. “It was heartwarming seeing familiar faces that we haven't seen in ages plus fans from our youth that packed the afternoon matinee and evening shows, and how much fun we had performing for them and watching them participate in the show,” says Ronnie who suggested that he and Jojit reunite in Manila with their artist friends and the Manila crowd that loves 70's music.
    “These days we need a dose of yesteryears when love songs were tender, lengthy laugh trips were highly contagious and dancing expressed the soul’s joy and rhythm...more importantly when friendships lasted lifetimes,” adds Ronnie wistfully.

    Ronnie Henares and Jojit Paredes will prove just that in their reunion concert on September 1, 2018, 8 pm at The Theatre at Solaire Resort and Casino. “Music lovers are going to love this concert,” Ronnie and Jojit or the Twofus, say in chorus, “The audience can expect to hear the hits of the times which aren't performed anymore in any of the entertainment venues in the country.”
    Take a wonderful trip down memory lane with Ronnie and Jojit to an era when love songs were beautiful, tender, and had well thought-out lyrics and upbeat tunes made it impossible for you not to groove to the music.
    The Twofus will captivate old and new audiences alike with hits from Chad and Jeremy, Mamas and the Papas, Everly Brothers, Beatles, Lettermen, Lovin Spoonfuls, Cascades and more.
    Joining in on the fun are long time friends of Ronnie and Jojit like music icons Jim Paredes and Boboy Garrovillo of the APO Hiking Society, funny lady Mitch Valdes, and the 70’s top dancing duo, the AldeguerSisters. “No stone is being left unturned to ensure we give the audience a fun-filled night of music, laughter and dance while celebrating long lasting friendship and the good old days,” says Ida R. Henares of Primeline Management & Production, Inc.

Jojit Paredes and Ronnie Henares
"Twofus…Reunion of Friends” gathered together the best production team that includes director and writer Floy Quintos, musical director Roy del Valle, art director Christian Henares, the team of Sisa Hernandez Kalson for production, Francis Libiran for the wardrobe, and the very best session back up singers and musicians.
    Making this major throwback party for friends and music lovers of the 70’s possible are presenters Solaire Resort & Casino, PrimelineManagement & Production, Inc., and University of Perpetual Help, sponsors KARADA, PLDT 90 and Smart, M&Co cosmetics, donor HCB Institute, and media partners RJ FM 100.3, 91.5 WIN Radio, and The Philippine STAR.
    Relive the good old days with friends and family at “Twofus…Reunion of Friends.”

Goldilocks Promotes Educated Eating

FNRI Director-Dr. Mario V. Capanzana and Goldilocks Marketing Director- Ms. Chery Caluya

While eating is a necessity to live, Filipinos have elevated this requirement to an expression of love, affection, and thoughtfulness. Proof of that is our tendency to say, “Kain tayo!” after greeting a friend, or asking “Kumain ka na ba?” as a way of asking how our friends are doing. Unfortunately, there are instances when this love for eating leads to over indulgence and poor dietary decisions.

Being informed about our food intake is one of the many ways we can take care of our health. But in this fast-paced world wherein we hardly have any time to cook and ordering food is a more viable option, it may be harder to stick to a sensible diet.

To address this concern, responsible food establishments and institutions are working hand-in-hand to develop healthier meals that will help Filipinos get the proper nutrition they need, without stopping them from eating what they love.

In 2015, for instance, Goldilocks launched the Pinggang Pinoy Meals. The meals were created as part of an advocacy partnership with the Food and Nutrition Research Institute (FNRI). It aims to help provide the right amount of nutrients and calories needed by the average Filipino.

The country’s number one bakeshop has continued this initiative up to the present, and improved upon it with the addition of a Calorie Content count printed beside the menu of Pinggang Pinoy Meals. This will help ensure that consumers are  aware of how much you they are consuming, and how close they are to the recommended 2000 calories per day.

The past year’s Pinggang Pinoy favorites Pinakbet and Daing na Bangus set, and the Monggo and Daing na Bangus set, are still available for PhP 130 and PhP 120 pesos, respectively. Joining the Pinggang Pinoy line is the all new Sauteed Veggies and Chicken BBQ set for only PhP 120. Each meal is served with steamed rice, gelatin, and bottled water.

For more information about the Goldilocks and the Pinggang Pinoy Meals, follow @GoldilocksPH on Facebook and Twitter.

Star Magic's Michelle Vito and Jon Lucas star in a romance-drama film entitled "Dito Lang Ako"

Jon Lucas, Michelle Vito and Akihiro Blanco during "Dito Lang Ako" blogcon 

Truly love is the most wonderful feeling we all could ever experience. The feeling that we all wouldn't wanna let go and always in the mood to have your love one beside you or just the mere thought of him or her, could really make our day. We all feel secured and loved by the warmth and sweet gestures that being given to us.

There are really those kind of relatioships that are worth taking care of, worth cherishing and worth spending our precious time. They say that if you have found your one, true love you'll fight for it. You'll do anything for the relationship not to fail, no matter what.

What if time and other situation would be the factors that will hinder your blossoming realtionship? Are you willing to sacrifice your love or are you the type of person that would very patient and will wait for your loved one to re-surface or comeback? Where do you belong?

"Dito Lang Ako" talks about the kind of love that Delfin (Jon Lucas) and Nelia (Michelle Vito) had. Unwavering love surpasses any kind of tribulations.

Jon and Michelle 

Star Magic’s Michelle Vito and Jon Lucas’ fresh tandem is ready to make hearts melt with their first-ever big screen pairing in the romance-drama film “Dito Lang Ako” starting August 8.
JonChelle, as the new pairing is called, play the role of Delfin and Nelia respectively, the young lovers whose resolve and affection have been tested by time and circumstances.
The story centers on how Nelia waits for Delfin--a man that she lost 40 years ago--to comeback. Unwilling to forget the romance that she spent with him, she recalls their tale set amid the timeless beauty of Quezon City.

As Nelia and Delfin's story unfolds, “Dito Lang Ako” becomes more than just a recollection of a past romance, it is an achingly compassionate story of heartfelt passion, tender moments and most of all, unselfish love.

Leading the film are Jon and Michelle, who are both very much grateful to have finally fulfilled their dream of having their first headlining role in “Dito Lang Ako.

“Siyempre lahat kami, siguro lahat ng na sa showbiz, lahat ng artista gusto maging leading man, leading lady, so finally parang, parang achieved na siya para sa akin. And, parang iba yung sa pakiramdamn na oh naging leading kady na ako,said Michelle.
While he admits to being pressured at first since he doesn’t have any “hugot” yet, Jon eventually enjoyed the fact that he had a chance to work with Michelle and as her leading man at that.

“Nung nalaman ko nga po na si Michelle Vito ang makaka-partner ko, natuwa ako ng sobra kasi magkaibigan kami ni Michelle tapos inexpect ko agad  na magiging maagaan sa set,” said Jon. “Tapos magaling pa si Michelle, nakakadala.”

Jon (Delfin), Michelle (Nelia) and Akihiro (Victor) 

    The entire journey of creating the film has been nothing short of enjoyable for Michelle and Jon as the’ve gotten closer to each other. Not too long, they’ve also forged a new friendship with their co-stars, including their characters’ third party named Victor, played by Akihiro Blanco.
But with joy comes certain challenges, JonChelle also had their fair share of them while creating the film last year.
While she also enjoyed the flashback moments of their film, Michelle singled out that it has been particularly challenging because it involved so many other aspects, aside from acting.

Amid the expectations and pressure, Michelle and Jon take comfort over the fact that they’ve given their best on their film. And for them, that reflects the value that they have given the opportunities that they received.

As for the moviegoers, Jon hopes that they feel the same kind of passionate love that Nelia and Delfin have for each other.

“Hindi dahilan ang mga pagsubok sa mga magkakarelasyon para i-give up agad ang love. Kailangan parin na ipaglaban hanggang sa huli,” he said.
Directed by Roderick Lindayag and produced by Blade Entertainment, “Dito Lang Ako” is written by Harvey C. Aquino and Fanny P. Dychiao.

Catch Jon Lucas, Michelle Vito, Akihiro Blanco, Boots Anson-Roa, Freddie Webb, Rey ‘PJ’ Abellana, DJ Durano, James Deakin, Garie Concepcion, Senpai Kazu and Roadfill of Moymoy Palaboy in cinemas nationwide starting August 8, 2018.
