Arjo Atayde: The Actor in its real sense

Prime Actor Arjo Atayde with his mom and actress Ms. Sylvia Sanchez 

Who would not know him for his remarkable role in "Ang Probinsyano," as Police C/Insp. Joaquin S. Tuazon, one of Coco Martin aka Ricardo Dalisay's antagonists during his whole appearance in the said soap, that has been running for more than two years now. I am pretty sure that you do have the clue aa to whom I am referring... He's no other than Arjo Atayde who is Juan Carlos Ocampo Atayde in real life. He's now twenty-seven years old and is enjoying the peak of his career. 

Being a son of an equally prime actress, Miss Sylvia Sanchez, is a plus factor for him I guess, since Arjo had mentioned before during one of the interviews with him that, his mom gives him some pointers in acting and that she never ceases to remind him and sister Ria Atayde to always stay grounded,  be respectful of others, and to be greatful for everything that they have been receiving. 

The good-looking and bedimpled Arjo Atayde 

Arjo has been in the showbiz for quite sometime and his acting ability is uncompromised and recognizable. In fact, he has earned numerous awards, such as bagging (to name a few) the PMPC Star Awards for Television as Best Single Performance by an Actor in "Maalaala Mo Kaya: 'Bangka' " in 2012; PMPC Star Awards for Television as Best Drama Supporting Actor via "Dugong Buhay" in 2013 and his latest achievement was another Best Drama Supporting Actor for his performance in "Ang Probinsyano," during PMPC Star Awards for Television in 2016. 

I remember Arjo's strong character in "Ang Probinsyano," he was so believable, being an envious, insecure co-police officer of Cardo who uses his position, power and money just to bring Cardo down and his family. He is such an effective actor. By just merely looking through his eyes, this alone could speak to the audience. He effectively transmits and conveys to us what he wanted us to feel and be really involved in whatever scene he's going through. And I believe that he should be given more acting opportunities and projects catering to  that villain-like character. 

This time, my fave young actor is back with a different role, or should I say, in a very wholesome and family-oriented character. This particular tv series, I guess, can be considered his very memorable one, for he shares the limelight with no other than her mom, Miss Sylvia Sanchez where they also play mother and son in the story. "Hanggang Saan," has a drama, action, love and crime theme where Arjo plays "Paco," the son of Sonya (Sylvia). There are a lot of conflicts and complications in the story. 

Like in these heart-breaking scenes posted above, taken this afternoon, Paco (Arjo), was with his mom Sonya (Sylvia) and his only sibling Domeng (Yves Flores). This particular scene itself consumes a lot of energy, effort and emotions from the cast which I admit, had a great impact on us, viewers. Had they not been good in their performances, I swear, the program would not be receiving awesome reviews and ratings. 

Arjo Atayde as Paco in #HanggangSaan

I can imagine how dreadful Arjo's role is as Paco. Presently, he is so torn between the love of his life, Anna (Sue Ramirez), and his very own family, particularly his mom, Sonya who allegedly killed Anna's father, Edward Lamoste played by Eric Quizon. The whole revelation thing came in so quickly, Sonya has forced herself to admit to her family that she was the real killer/suspect of the "Lamoste Murder Case," which ironically, is being handled by a law firm which Paco is also involved working as an apprentice or OJT (On the Job Training). 

With Arjo's expertise in this kind of field, he acts so naturally. He is such a blessing to the local showbiz. There are only a few actors which I know that you know, is capable and deserving of the title as "The Actor." He can be the future "John Lloyd Cruz,", and can also be another "Christopher de Leon" in the making. I hope for more good projects for you, Arjo, for you deserve to be "up" there and be even more recognized.

Vivo Showcases World’s First Ready-to-Produce In-Display Fingerprint Scanning Smartphone at CES 2018

Delivering a Next-Generation Mobile Experience for Consumers with Industry-Leading Optical Fingerprint Sensor from Synaptics

Las Vegas, US, 9 January 2018 – Today at CES 2018, Vivo, a young global smartphone brand, showcases the world’s first ready-to-produce in-display fingerprint scanning smartphone that draws attention from a global audience. Leading with distinct innovative breakthroughs, the futuristic Vivo in-display fingerprint scanning smartphone offers consumers an unprecedented mobile experience, defining a new era of mobile interaction.

Vivo In-Display Fingerprint Scanning Technology in Detail

 World’s First In-Display Fingerprint Smartphone Ready for Mass Production
At CES 2018, Vivo shows the world the first ready-to-produce smartphone featuring in-display fingerprint scanning technology, demonstrating its continued commitment to bringing an extraordinary user experience to consumers. This latest fingerprint scanning technology delivers a whole new mobile experience by enabling users to unlock their smartphone through one-touch fingerprint scanning directly on the smartphone display, while solving the industry’s challenge of providing a better and more convenient fingerprint authentication experience in future smartphones.

According to statistics from global consultancy Canalys, smartphone vendors shipped 22 million full-screen smartphones worldwide in the second quarter in 2017, up from 700,000 in the first quarter of this year. UBI Research predicted that bezel-less displays will grow in market share from 20% in 2017 to over 50% by 2020. Fingerprint recognition has long been one of the most common and well-known biometrics used to secure smartphones. As the industry moves into a new era of full-screen displays, it is natural that the fingerprint scanning technology needs to evolve to accommodate new user habits and demands for bigger screens without sacrificing user experience.

“With our efforts in extensive consumer research and long-term R&D investment, Vivo is well positioned to pioneer the development of fingerprint scanning technology. We first presented a prototype of our fingerprint scanning solution at MWC Shanghai 2017 based on an ultrasonic sensor, and have remained committed to realizing our vision for future smartphones,” said Alex Feng, Senior Vice President of Vivo. “Today’s showcase of a ready-to-produce in-display fingerprint scanning smartphone featuring an optical fingerprint sensor is a big leap forward in bringing consumers this long-awaited, futuristic mobile experience. We are very excited to make it available to consumers soon.”

Innovation that Delivers a New Level of User Experience
Vivo’s full-production smartphone is equipped with the industry-leading, world’s first in-display fingerprint scanning technology supported by global partner Synaptics.

Vivo In-Display Fingerprint Scanning Technology supports various usage scenarios beyond unlocking the smartphone, and is only activated when needed. A graphical UI will show up on Vivo’s smartphone screen in any scenario that fingerprint recognition is required, such as when the screen is off, during software unlocking, or even mobile payment authentication. Users can press the fingerprint graphic on the screen to perform unlocking, payment and other operations. When fingerprint recognition is not required, the UI will be invisible and will not disrupt the overall visual experience.

Vivo In-Display Fingerprint Scanning Technology outperforms other authentication solutions available for full-screen smartphones in many aspects. Compared to fingerprint sensors on the back of smartphones, Vivo In-Display Fingerprint Scanning Technology offers a more convenient operation without sacrificing the sleek and unified design of the smartphone. It also enables quick and secured authentication.

Full-screen displays are set to deliver a more immersive user experience for consumers as various interactions will be integrated and consolidated on the display. Vivo In-Display Fingerprint Scanning Technology replaces the physical fingerprint button on the screen, laying the foundation for a truly immersive experience.

The showcasing of the world’s first in-display fingerprint scanning smartphone ready for mass-production marks a significant leap forward in the industry’s development, taking users’ smartphone experience to a new level. The availability of Vivo’s first in-display fingerprint scanning smartphone will be announced in early 2018.

About Vivo

Vivo continues to grow in the country with at least 1.1 million users and 5,200 stores and counting. The brand’s unprecedented success can be attributed to its smartphones’ sleek and hip design, all-screen display and the revolutionary 24MP camera—one of the world’s first. The brand also owes it success to its accurate consumer insight, innovative solutions and offerings, and creative marketing strategy.

Acquiring new hairstyle for a better you!

FreeTess Braids- Goddess Loc 18" 

***This is a sponsored post. All opinions are mine.***

Oh yes! New year... perfect time to make a new start, new beginning, new lifestyle and of course we should never forget, new looks! For us, women, when we say we wanted to acquire a "brand new look," the very first thing that really enters our mind is that changing our hair. It can be having a new haircut, a new hair color, we can also pamper our hair--- like having a hair spa, a rebond, or hair relax perhaps... or better yet, trying on different hairstyles! 

This is me today! 

Naturally, I do have a very straight Asian black hair and I like to wear it with a length as long as what it appears on this photo taken just recently. But I also like to challenge myself and try on different looks for my hair as you can see, I am presently having a Balayage hair color. 

I was having curls here

As seen on my photo above, I went to a beauty parlor and they made big curls on my hair to highlight my hair color. I am not only adventurous in trying out different types of food, when it comes to enhancement and achieving new looks, I am very much open about it, most especially if I feel assured of the steps to be done and encountered. You know what I mean, the outcome should be amazing and worth-spending, in short, it should be of utmost satisfaction. 

Leading e-commerece shop

Still with hair talk, do you know that there's this leading online shop, committed to becoming the most-loved and trusted wig retailer on the web? It's called the "Divatress," and it caters to everyone as long as you are willing to make yourself a "diva." A diva is a goddess or queen. ‘Tress’ is a lock of hair. The founders of Divatress selected this name to signify beauty through hair. They strongly believe everyone should feel like a diva and they offer a wide array of wig brands and pricing for all of us. 

Here, take a look at this... 

FreeTress Braids- 2x Braid 101 28" 

This photo above and the first photo (Goddess Loc 18") , had inspired me to try a different kind of hair improvement and enhancement--- it is by putting on those beautiful wigs and order it online. I told myself, why not? If it's not today so, when is it gonna be? And for a start, I'd like to order a crochet braid hair . And here's what I found: 

Saga Human Hair Standard Type Crochet Braid- Loose Deep 

Closer look of Saga Human Hair Standard Type Crochet Braid- Loose Deep 

The regular price is $59.95 but for now, it would only be $39.95. If you click the item on Divatress, it will show more details about the product and its options like the hair length and color, whatever you prefer. And by the way, Divatress offers free shipping on orders over $49.00 for Continental US only. 

For a newbie on this area, what has driven me more to actually try on these, was the fact that this particular crochet braid is made up of 100% human hair. And according to its description, "The Loose Deep is quickly going to establish itself as one of your favorite pieces and it is easy to understand why. This piece is made with 100% human fibers." It also says there that it can be easily installed and it has an elastic band that retracts and expands to fit our style more so, it prevents slippage. 

Can't wait to try this! My #hairgoal for this year is about to happen and I feel so excited. Our hair is our crowning glory, yes and I firmly agree with that, so if I were you let us not stop experimenting and trying out new things for ourselves. Let us always create a better version of ourselves and it starts within us. If we couldn't make it happen today, so when will that be? 

Let us unleash the "Diva" and "Goddess" within us and let Divatress take care of this. Hope you'll join me in acquiring a new and innovative hairstyle for a better you!

Give Your Voice Extra TLC with Fisherman’s Friend

Imagine yourself as Ariel from the Disney classic The Little Mermaid: If there is something you want from the bottom of your heart, will you be willing to give up your voice just to get it?

For most of us, our voice is a non-negotiable thing. Communication is considered a necessity, no matter what industry you are in. In the Philippines where Business Process Outsourcing and other service sectors are considered as some of our strongest industries, being able to communicate is one of the lifelines of the jobs that support us.

Take for example *Francis 27, who used to work as a call center agent. “Back when I was a customer service representative, I have no other means to connect with my customers but my voice. If I can’t be heard clearly on the phone, as a customer service representative, that’s going to affect my productivity.

Even after jumping into a different industry, he expounds the importance of confidence partnered with clarity, “Now that I am in Sales, I talk to logistic partners based here in the Philippines, clear verbal communication still plays an important role when closing new projects. My confidence radiates through my voice and that’s how I help the business grow.”

Communication capabilities and speaking skills aren't only important in voice-based jobs. People who present to clients also highlight the importance of having a clear and powerful speaking voice. *Abraham, a creative director in an advertising agency, talks about how important his speaking ability is to his line of work. 

"When presenting my ideas to client, I need to convey it with confidence and clarity. Especially in major presentations where we usually have a boardroom filled with head honchos, my voice needs to fill the room. The way I communicate to them is very important in selling the idea. If my voice is soft or sounds unsure, they'll also doubt my idea. So I always make sure that my voice is ready for every pitch and presentation."

It’s not only in our professional lives that our communication skills are important, however. As Filipinos, we are natural social butterflies. We boast a special kind of hospitality that makes everyone feel at home. Not to mention showcasing our voices come with our culture. It’s the reason why all of us love a good party and some karaoke!

Like Ariel, some people have a tendency of not realizing how important our voices are until the end. It doesn’t necessarily have to mess up our happy endings, but it’s important to our everyday lives!

Thankfully, you don’t need to go to great lengths just to take care of it. For example, taking lozenges like Fisherman’s Friend can help ease your throat problems in the event that you do pull off a Little Mermaid stint. Created by Lofthouse Company, the established brand of menthol lozenges provides instant relief to usual throat concerns like coughing, soreness, and itchiness. Plus points to it for having yummy flavors as well so you can have it as your new favorite sweet.

Choose from flavors like Spearmint Sugar Free, Lemon Sugar Free, Cherry Sugar Free, Mint Sugar Free, Mandarin Sugar Free, Original and Strong Mint. You can get a pack for only Php 44.75 on leading drugstores, convenient stores, supermarket and groceries nationwide.

Found out something that's more convenient and delicious for me and my family

Do you ever wish that there should have been more food options, actually not just food but delicious and tasty food that we can readily serve or is easy to prepare for our family? Well, I do. You see, as a mom, head of the family and the kitchen supervisor at home, I am in a continuous quest for those factors. You might probably feel the same way or somehow can relate to what I am saying, right?! 

You see, in this day and age, everything's an instant and we, as dwellers and occupants in this ever-changing world, should cope up with its fast-paced cycle of life. Yes, there are those easy-to-prepare foods that are in foil packs where we could put in warm water to re-heat it or microwave it, there are also instant noodles, instant drinks or beverages... most of the things we eat and drink are now easily available. 

But what's keeping me in search for a more convenient and delicious meal for my family? From the wide array of easy-to-prepare meals, I still want my family to experience something that would let them taste a restaurant-like flavor that's right for my budget and that is also convenient based on my demands and lifestyle. 

While doing my regular grocery, I chanced by this new product from Purefoods that says. Heat and Eat. Being an adventurous and open-minded, most especially when it comes to home improvement and for my family, I grabbed some of those hoping that it would help me since I'd like to engage myself in multi-tasking. Look what I've got! 

A gify for myself! Hahaha See, how shallow I could get?! 

Purefoods Heat and Eat Crispy Pata and Lechon Kawali on my fridge!!! 

By the the term itself, "Heat and Eat," I admit it caught me right away! Thinking that this could probably be "The One" that I've been looking for. Bonus points is that Crispy Pata and Lechon Kawali are two of the Filipino dishes that my family craves for. I know that your family loves it too, right?! Crispy Pata is a very time-consuming not that easy-to-prepare dish, same thing with Lechon Kawali. We all have to broil it to make it tender in preparation for the next and final step which is the deep-frying. After allowing it to be tender, just apply salt all over the meat to taste and then fry it in a pan filled with cooking oil, (I suggest!) for a crispier taste and experience. 

Purefoods Heat and Eat Crispy Pata is affordably priced at Php325.00 for 900g. This is good for 5-6 persons.

Purefoods Heat and Eat Lechon Kawali is affordably priced at Php230.00 for 425g good for 3-4 persons. 

See, it's really a time-consuming and oil-consuming meal my dear amazing readers. Yes, they're my family's faves but before I plan on preparing those, I should allot more time and effort on this. It was really a good thing that I was able to find out about Purefoods latest home-cooked meal. Since it's indicated there that it is fully-cooked, we don't need to mix anything on it, it has its own Filipino taste already, we just have to heat it and eat! 

Last Noche Buena, I decided to include Purefoods Heat and Eat Crispy Pata and Lechon Kawali on our Christmas dinner table. 

Pulled out from our freezer, as you can see it's still frozen and out of the foil pack 

You may pull it out of your freezer at an earlier time so it would only take you to re-heat it for 10-20 mins. only.

Now it's ready for re-heating 

What I did was, I re-heat it using the turbo. You can also do it the conventional way, which is in a pan-fry (deep-fry it), for a crispier and more tasty experience of Crispy Pata and Lechon Kawali. 

All set 

Re-heating is on-going. 

While waiting for the Purefoods Heat and Eat to finish, I was still able to do other kitchen stuff and chores. I still kept myself busy with preparing other things like cooking pasta and frying Christmas ham for dinner and more time with my family. For a multi-tasker like myself, this is such a great find, this is very convenient for me and at the same time my family can enjoy and experience these tasty Filipino faves! 

Finally, the Purefoods Heat and Eat Crispy Pata and Lechon Kawali can now be served! This is best-served with another Filipino fave, the vinegar and soy sauce with lots of onions, garlic and red chilli. Put some sugar and pepper to taste. This makes Crispy Pata and Lechon Kawali a perfect combination to beat! Rice anyone??? :)) 

By just merely looking at it, can you feel its crispness? It's called the #PurefoodsSarapLutong 

I can say that, I had fully made my new discovery and had achieved something from it remarkably! Aside from our classic faves from Purefoods which are their hotdogs and corned beef, we now have a new line of Pinoy delicious meals that's so affordable and delicious. The thing that every Filipino family would love and crave for. 

Some of you are now craving for Crispy Pata and Lechon Kawali, I know that hihi well, if you wish to grab and buy this new line of easy to prepare and delish Purefoods products, you can find it in Monterey meatshops and leading supermarkets at the "native section." 

Since I still have few more Crispy Pata and Lechon Kawali left on my fridge, I am planning on still having them for our Media Noche or New Year's eve dinner table! And actually we're having it 'til forever hahaha when my family craves for it, there's already Purefoods Heat and Eat that's so easy-to-prepare and easy on my budget which I can rely on, and has that 
"sarap lutong," anytime...all the time!!!

NOVUHAIR turns favor with Holiday bash promo

So you’ve got your festive outfit set and the fancy gift wrapped for your “monito” or “monita”. All that’s left undone is a party season-perfect hairstyle. 

The fresh out of the shower look can be seductive yet temporary. Blame it to tropical climate, it can spoil your appearance, besides making you feel sweaty and stale. The heat and humidity brought about by extreme weather condition, likewise, dries out the locks easily and make it more fragile. 

Adding damage to your delicate strands are the chemical contents of various products on hand. From shampoo to conditioner and hair treatment, down to styling goods to groom it to your liking, their harsh synthetic materials jeopardize the natural oil and luster of your mane.

Because you are what you eat, the fate of your crowning glory is in the plate. Your diet must have the correct balance of vitamins and minerals to supply hair with all that it needs to become shiny and strong. So don’t overindulge, especially this time of the year when gastronomic feasts are spread almost everywhere you go. Be careful on what you take in, thinking that it’s also what you feed your ‘do.

Even stress can wear off the beauty and health of the tress. And that’s exactly what you should avoid this Yuletide season. Never put pressure on yourself just to please everyone. Just take it easy, let your hair down and party all night long. 

In this time of gratitude, NOVUHAIR makes everyday “a good hair day” for its valued patrons like you with its Christmas and Year-End Promo.

That creamy, cheesy taste on your fave Christmas recipes with a twist!

Ahhhh can you feel it? Can you hear or smell the spirit of Christmas? It is actually right at the tip of our noses, right?! But let me ask you about what are the other things that excite you most during Holiday season aside from giving and receiving Christmas presents? Hmmmm... I guess, I know exactly what you are thinking and your answer is, and I bet it is the same and as good as mine :)) 

When people talk about food, it is an endless topic right?! And when we talk about our favorite time of the year, which is Christmas, the birth of our Saviour, Jesus Christ, then there's New Year celebration, we couldn't help but to prepare something really good if not, the best for our family and loved ones. And the tastiest and easiest way to their hearts, rather stomachs :)) is to cook or make their fave Christmas recipes. 

And I know you would all agree with me and nod your head when I say that, it has been a tradition for everyone, most especially us, Filipinos, to have a Cheese Ball on every Noche Buena dining table, (Christmas Eve). Well, in our family, we've all grown up to this type of tradition and am pretty sure you can relate to this too, right?! And to tell you honestly, it has never been my fave 'til I came across Danes Cheese Ball. Kidding aside, it really tastes way better than the other commercialized brands and it's so creamy without experiencing an after taste, take note of that! 

 I'd like to share with you my amazing  dear readers, what I did with the very versatile Danes Cheese Ball. 

My HoliDanes Cheese Board 

You see sometimes, I'd really like to prepare and do out-of-the -ordinary kind of thing you know what I mean :) Included in my HoliDanes Cheese Board are biscuits, Christmas ham, almonds, raisins, the paté and of course, the star of the program, Danes Cheeseball which cut and sliced into different sizes and shapes to make it more appealing and appetizing! Hope you could also try this at home. 

My HoliDanes cheese and fruit kebabs 

This one, I just thought of this because, I'd like to think of some other way that I could make use of the Danes cheese ball or when we have some left overs even after Christmas or you can also prepare it on New Year's eve dinner with family or any other time of the year. I was able to include diced ham,  some fruits like grapes, melon, fuji and red apples. Since this is also a very versatile concoction, it all depends on what fruits or any other edible stuff that you'd like to use. Hope I was able to contribute something to feed your creative juices. 

So, you think you've had enough? Nuh uh there's more! This time, you'll get to use Danes Cheese Ball to your fave Christmas recipes with a twist! Here you go: 

1. Spaghetti
Spaghetti is a Filipino party essential and Christmas is no exception! Something about this just screams, Lets celebrate! This Christmas, why not make your sweet spaghetti even better with cheese mixed into the sauce. Then sprinkle a lot of cheese on top. This will surely be a hit with the kids!

2. Caldereta
Every mom has a specialty dish, and you can expect it served on the grandest
occasion of the year. Caldereta is one of the most popular mommy specialties. Its a
common heirloom recipe passed on from generation to generation. Adding cheese to the sauce makes it even more savory.


3. Kakanin
When the Simbang Gabi starts, churches will be surrounded with stalls that sell colorful delicacies like bibingka and puto bumbong. As an appetizer or dessert, we cant get enough of kakanin, especially with cheese sprinkled on top of them! Besides, nearly everything is better with cheese, right?

4. Fruit Salad
Whats Noche Buena without Lola or Titas fruit salad? Most of us probably even helped making this as a kid, right? Bonding over Noche Buena preparations is a special part of our family memories. Its a really cheesy moment we share with our families.

Fruit Salad

These are just some of the dishes you can make with Danes Cheese Ball, you can mix it into your own recipes or make new dishes with it. Its great eaten on its own and its great with your signature dishes as well.

Danes Cheese Ball is available in all leading groceries and supermarkets. #HappyHoliDanes, indeed!

So what are you waiting for? Give your traditional Christmas dishes an awesome flavor boost with Danes Cheese Ball and create new family favorites.
