Another reason to love GARDENIA

Do you believe that human being are creatures of routine? We all follow a set of steps that takes us from one day to the next: wake up, get ready for the day, do your thing at school or in the office, take some time for your hobby, socialize, go to bed. Somewhere in between all that, we eat.

While there is nothing wrong with having a routine, if you’re not careful, routines can oh-so-quickly become boring. The concern is how to inject a little more excitement and joy in our all-too familiar routines, and the contempt that is inevitably bred from it.

How about a change in pace on your daily snack? Forget the usual sodium-laden, preservatives-saturated foodstuff you would normally reach for when you have the munchies. Try something different that will actually fill you, is convenient, but also fun and actually tastes good!

Give Gardenia’s new Muffins and Cream Rolls a try! The same brand that bakes the finest loaves on the shelves went the extra mile with their new assortment of freshly baked treats to make sure that each bite is tasty and satisfying.

Introducing Gardenia Muffin’s new flavors… The Mango and Banana-Choco Muffins. Gardenia made sure that their new muffins are what muffins should be in a perfect world, dense enough to make you feel each bite, yet soft and mouthwatering that even just chewing it is a treat on its own. The Mango Muffins are packed with flavor from real mango bits, just as the Banana-Choco Muffin has honest-to-goodness chocolate chips and banana bits. The clincher? They actually smell like they were freshly baked! As a light snack, each muffin is filling by itself, but since Gardenia Muffins come in packs of two, they are the perfect treat for sharing

Lotte Xylitol Neo Dental Health Gum

Small is the new big. Think cameras, mobile phones, tablets and other gadgets. 
As digital technology moves fast forward in this millennial age, more and more people will be on the go; the “one-touch”, “all-in-one” system will touch more lives, making small become even  smaller.

Yes, size matters. And with highly mobile people getting more health-conscious nowadays, they need to be assured that the health benefits they get should be substantial yet easily realizable. 

And specifically when it comes to oral health, carrying the small and compact Lotte Xylitol Neo Dental Health Gum becomes a big advantage. What if on certain occasions and days you are in the midst of doing an event, participating
in a grueling seminar or just stuck in a whirlwind of work, and brushing or flossing is impossible to squeeze in to your tight schedule? What if you are on a long road trip and can’t find a fairly clean and decent toilet to do your dental habit routine? Or simply fighting off a craving for sweet, bad-for-the-teeth candy?

That’s when Lotte Xylitol Neo Dental Health Gum comes in handy. Think of it as a pocket-sized dental/oral care kit you can take with you anytime, anywhere, especially if there is no time to brush your teeth or floss! Just bring it and reap the benefits of remineralized teeth for stronger enamel protection as well as fighting bad bacteria that cause tooth decay.

The importance of  “remineralization” and the role of Lotte Xylitol Neo Dental Health Gum:  

Whenever we eat, our teeth’s surface or the protective layer called “enamel” is threatened by acid-forming bacteria by creating invisible cracks, which then makes it vulnerable to cavities and tooth decay. And this is where Lotte Xylitol Neo Dental Health Gum helps because it contains xylitol, a natural sugar that stops the growth of cavity-causing bacteria to help reduce the risk of tooth decay. Plus it has “calcium phosphates” that help remineralize or rebuild the teeth so it remains strong and healthy for us to keep that toothy and gleaning smile.

Couple brushing with a fluoride-based toothpaste and flossing with the other habits of maintaining good oral hygiene, eating a healthy and well-balanced diet and visiting the dentist once or twice a year, you’re truly on your way to dental health bliss.

With just 2 pellets of Lotte Xylitol Neo Dental Health Gum 4-5 times a day, keep
your teeth decay-free and your mouth healthy. 
Lotte Xylitol Neo Dental Health Gum Flavors-- Fresh Mint, Blueberry Mint and Lime

Mint, is sold and distributed in the Philippines by Lotte Confectionary (Pilipinas) Corp. and is available at major drugstores, supermarkets and convenience stores nationwide.

Stackers Burger Café launches the country’s first-ever Baked Fried Chicken

Stackers Burger Café, one of the country’s leading fast-casual food concept, recently introduced another groundbreaking gastronomic treat that is sure to become the next best thing in chicken: “Baked Fried Chicken.”

This breakthrough chicken masterpiece was launched first at the Franchise Asia Philippines 2012 Expo held recently at the SMX Convention Center in Pasay City. The Stackers Burger Café Baked Fried Chicken is another food innovation from Bryan Tiu, founding owner of Teriyaki Boy before he sold 70% of the brand to the Pancake House Group in 2005. A prime restaurateur with several known food brands under his I-Foods, Inc., Tiu is at the helm of other homegrown brands like Tokyo Café, Peri-Peri Chicken and Kogi Bulgogi.

The newest thing to ever happen to chicken, Stackers’ Baked Fried Chicken is Tiu’s latest take on the all-time Pinoy favorite. Mastered after months of careful research by the I-Foods Inc. research & development team, Stackers’ Baked Fried Chicken surprised all with 80% less oil so it’s lighter and healthier than the usual fast food fried chicken. A definite treat to the more health-conscious food lovers who just love their fried chicken. Dare to compare Stackers’ Baked Fried Chicken with your usual fastfood fried chicken and enjoy the healthier difference.

In the Franchise Asia 2012, I-Foods, Inc. gave away complimentary Baked Fried Chicken gift certificates to expo attendees and other prospective franchisees in order to provide them with the opportunity to try out this new and exciting offering.

Try this out-of-the-ordinary chicken delight available in all Stackers Burger Café outlets located at Eastwood City, Resorts World and McKinley Hill Venice Piazza in Bonifacio Global City, Alabang Town Center and also at its newly opened branch at the Promenade Mall in Greenhills, San Juan City.

Also exhibited at the Franchise Expo was Tiu’s Tokyo Café, which showcased the Japanese way of preparing coffee. Coffee connoisseur Atsushi Yoshizawa’s coffee creations are the main reasons why coffee-loving Pinoys continue to troop to Tokyo Café to sample its brewed treats like its famous “Tokyo Blend.” For their delectable food pleasures, Tokyo Café boasts of its “creamy ebiko pasta,” “chicken and cheese roll,” and “Tenju.”

I-Foods Inc.'s other food retail brands include: Peri Peri Charcoal Chicken and Kogi Bulgogi. Tiu said opening possible franchise opportunities to business-minded individuals like himself will enable more Filipinos to enjoy his company’s pioneering and inventive food brands and its outstanding value offerings.

BAYANI... Ang Tatay Ko...

Filipinos are noted to have a very significant and positive attitude in handling difficulties in life. Others may also treat their predicaments in sort of “cool” manners, which the Pinoys are really known for.  M&N Films have come up with a brilliant idea of ideally showing to the public the film “Bayani Ang Tatay Ko.” An indie film about life, its struggles... it’s about presenting life’s most vivid moments with the people we love. This film not only wishes to instill family values but also provide entertainment and at the same time honors the law enforcers.

Actor-comedian and host Bayani Agbayani plays SPO3 Nicanor Corpuz , a decorated cop, loving dad and husband to his wife Susan played by Yayo Aguila, and son, Adrian played by child actor Yogo Singh. They live a simple, happy life until an incident took their lives on a different turn. One morning while in the police detachment where he is working, Taning played by Rommel Montano, a toughie from an influential family came looking for his colleague, SPO1 Joey Ponce. Ponce apparently shut down his illegal “videokarera” business and refused to accept a bribe, making the latter furious. Taning was scandalizing the station so he took a policewoman, SPO2 Pinky Madrigal hostage prompting Nick to defend his colleague.

Nick was suspended from service and he turned to selling “isaw” to make ends meet. Failing to do so, his wife Susan decided to go to Hongkong to work as a domestic helper. To help him in his business, Susan sent his brother, Ading played by Gene Padilla to help Nick tend to the isaw business. But the former cop realized that he is not cut for business, so he asked for his ninong, Col. Roberto Ugarte to give him an assignment. Colonel Ugarte referred him to the city hall where he worked as a traffic enforcer. As a traffic enforcer, Nick has learned to be happy with his new job because he wears a uniform and arrests violators. It was at this time when he was informed that his colleague, Ponce has remained missing since the precinct incident; SPO1 Fernandez had been looking for him. Worse, his wife Susan called to tell him she was victimized by an illegal recruiter.

All these tribulations that had happened to Nick and his family occurred very untimely. Witness how will a typical Filipino family face these challenges in a comedic and a bit of dramatic way with a sting of action to highlight the story.

Joining the lead stars are actor/model and ex-PBB housemate, Johann Santos, Ms. Jet Claveria, Butch Elizalde, Pinoy T.A.L.K. host Paul Quimbo, Ms. Jing Javier and Paulo Ponce and is under the helm of Ellen Argano.  “Bayani...Ang Tatay Ko...” is one of the official entries to the 2nd PNP Film Festival and subsequently, the awarding will take place at the Philippine International Convention Center (PICC) on August 7, 2012.

 Being a policeman is indeed a heroic profession; it is both a difficult and extensive task enabling continuous protection of the public and their property as well as maintaining law and order. Preventing crime, reducing its fear and ensuring the improvement of every citizen’s quality of life are no way an easy job. So let us all salute the gentle officers... the all-time “bayani” of every community.

“Bayani...Ang Tatay Ko...” will have its premiere showing on August 5, 2012, Sunday at SM North Edsa Cinema 5, 5:00- 6:30 PM. Please be guided for further announcements and updates of the movie’s scheduled screenings in various theaters nationwide. For the movie's block screening and sponsorship matters, please contact Ms. Nanette or Grace at these numbers: 425-1658 and 0915-8170505
