The Honda Gen-S scooters; the perfect scooters for the smart riders





 I learned to drive a car when I was 17 years old, my father thought me the "how to's" without sending me to driving school. I learned eventually on my own, I set the rules and I know that Im a defensive driver to begin with.

When the scooter became a fad in Manila where I used to stay 5 years ago, almost everyone from the neighborhood owns a bike or a scooter or "motor" for you. The girls had all the time of their lives driving from our street to the nearest SM San Lazaro mall with their candy colored bikes complete with stereo.   I died of envy,  everytime I see them on the mall, because I wanted to drive my own scooter in this age and time, I guess I have to put this on my "bucketlist" of to do things when you hit your 40s.

If ever I have to buy a scooter, it should be a Honda, because Honda has proven itself to the riding public for so many years now. My siblings bikes are all Honda because of style and practicality.



Leading motorcycle manufacturer Honda Philippines, Inc. (HPI) has launched Generation S, a new breed of smart, responsible riders who choose and value Honda scooters for their revolutionary technology, innovative features and practicality, it was launched during the Honda Gen-S Scooter Parade and Festival at the Blue Bay Walk in Pasay City last Sept 26 to coincide with the unveiling of the all-new Zoomer-X, the third instalment in Honda’s Gen-S scooters which are all equipped with Smart Technology features.

“These Gen S smart riders appreciate how their Honda scooters, powered by Smart Technology, enhance their daily life by creating positive impacts on fuel savings, road safety and the environment, especially in the long term,” said HPI president Daiki Mihara.



“The Honda Gen-S scooters now include the BeAT-Fi ‘Scooter for All’, the Click125i ‘Premium Scooter’, and the Zoomer-X  ‘Unique Real Naked Scooter’ which all feature Enhanced Smart Power, Idling Stop System and Combined Brake System. These are the perfect scooters for the varied lifestyle and personalities of our next generation smart riders,” HPI product planning manager Elie Salamangkit Jr. said.

Honda’s Enhanced Smart Power (eSP) is an advanced engine technology that combines high power and high fuel efficiency with a quiet start and smooth engine revs. This enables the engine to be more “eco-friendly” as it maximizes the combustion process while minimizing friction to optimize energy output and reduce the risk of waste. The eSP technology is integrated with the Unique Honda ACG starter that is able to start the engine jolt free and with a more refined sound.



Enabling more fuel efficiency and savings is Honda’s advanced Idling Stop System (ISS) which automatically switches off the engine after three seconds of idling and restarts it with just a twist of the throttle for a quick start up and go. This further minimizes fuel consumption especially when stopping at traffic lights or making brief stops.

Ensuring enhanced road safety is the Combined Brake System (CBS) which allows for quicker and safer stops as it distributes brake force to the rear and front wheels with just a squeeze of the left brake lever.



Zoom-in on unstoppable features
Aside from its Honda Smart Technology features, the Zoomer-X also comes with an upgraded 110cc PGM fuel-injected engine that delivers clean combustion and low friction for 5% higher torque and 6% higher power, making the scooter and its rider an unstoppable force on the road. Compared to its first version, the all-new Zoomer-X has an 8% higher fuel efficiency which notches at 62.5km/liter (ECE R40 Test Method).

The all-new Zoomer-X also features bold advancements in design and feature as it draws inspiration from a naked, tough and durable design concept.

The unique scooter now sports a fully-digital meter panel, new headlight in stainless steel frame, inverted shock absorbers, 12” cast tubeless tires, unique seat compartment, and real naked style which features new wrapped-around image of structured stainless steel frame from dual seat to RR grab, making it as stylish and customizable as it is powerful and innovative.

During the whole-day event which was capped by the GEN S scooter parade, visitors were treated to exciting games and raffles, photo booths, live DJ and band performances, Smart Technology workshops and a special AVP message from Honda GEN S ambassador and Zoomer-X endorser Daniel Padilla.

Scooter enthusiasts were also treated to test drives and exciting activities courtesy of Smart Tech testing booths where they experienced how the Smart Technology works in Honda’s latest line of scooters. These included the Scooter Dyno Test which measured the scooter’s speed and fuel efficiency and the Scooter Ramp Test which highlighted the Idling Stop and Combined Brake Systems.

The all-new Honda Zoomer-X is available in lively Marigold Yellow and trend-setting Mat Crypton Silver Metallic colors for Php93,900.

Harman the leader in revolutionary sound launches JBL Splashproof, Charge 2+ and JBL Clip




I have a collection of audio speakers of different sizes, colors and styles, its function from alarm clock to home mini speakers.   I got the penchant of collecting mini speakers 2 years ago because of the styles, features and how portable it is.   ( the candy colored cute ones I had it arranged in my cabinet) and checked with what company manufactured them afterwards, the moment I got curious with the quality of the sounds.

I am not particular with the quality or the crispness of the sounds until I got this mini JBL bluetooth speaker Clip, from an event that I attended last year.  I have been using the Clip eversince, and carrying it when I am out of town. It is the best high-quality sound stylish speaker that I have up to this day, that's why I was as excited as everybody else when I got an invite to the Harman JBL launch last Sept. 17 at Edsa Shangri-la Hotel.







 HARMAN the premier audio, visual, infotainment and enterprise automation group introduces the JBL Charge 2+ and JBL Clip+ Bluetooth speakers to take music with you on outdoor adventures and during spring and summer months filled with days near lakes, beaches and water parks. These ultra-portable speaker systems are versatile in their durability, provide hands-free listening and deliver powerful, high-quality JBL sound. Splashproof means there is no need to worry about rain or spills, and you can even clean these JBL speakers with running tap water.





Before a speaker can be described as truly versatile, it must be able to handle the unexpected. And the JBL Clip+ has been created for this purpose— from its durable, splashproof design to its portability. Its built-in carabineer makes it possible to bring music on all of your adventures. Whether you toss it into your backpack at the end of your day or bring it to your kayaking outdoor adventure, the JBL Clip+ can take care of itself.

During the summer months, music can complement any activity with this very convenient form factor.



The JBL Charge 2+ takes the party everywhere – be it poolside or dancing in the rain – and amplifies the excitement. It is a portable, compact stereo speaker with room-filling sound and a battery with capacity enough to power your lifestyle—however active it may be. Allowing you to listen wirelessly and charge endlessly in rain or shine, its 6,000 mAh lithium-ion battery keeps the music going for a full 12 hours, with power to spare for charging phones, tablets and other devices through its USB port to ensure that you are never left hanging without your tunes or mobile device while on any expedition. The device anticipates that some adventures will no doubt be taken with friends; the speaker’s social mode lets up to three people take turns streaming music from their mobile phone, tablet or laptop playlists.




Both the JBL Clip+ and the JBL Charge 2+’s connectivity are not just about the music, but the devices are also about staying connected while you are out and about. Use Bluetooth to communicate with others through the built-in, hands-free conference speakerphones. With noise and echo-cancelling technology, along with a built-in microphone, the JBL Clip+ and the JBL Charge 2+ will ensure that your phone conversations are never less than crystal clear—even if you are near the loudest waterfall.

Wind-powered Guimaras to sustain energy for 48,000 households


In an effort to give greater emphasis on the use of more sustainable energy sources in the Philippines, Trans-Asia Oil and Energy Development Corporation, through its subsidiary Trans-Asia Renewable Energy Corporation (TAREC), completed a 54-megawatt wind farm in the Visayan province of Guimaras.

The San Lorenzo Wind Farm, named after the town in which it is located, is projected to generate over 120 GWh of electricity annually, which can sustain the energy demands of 48,000 households.
“The Visayas is currently experiencing a surge in infrastructure and economic progress, which will eventually lead to higher energy demands,” TAREC reps said. “The wind farm is more than capable of answering this demand. It will be a key contributor in producing renewable energy in the region,” TAREC continued.



Aside from the energy that it yields, TAREC representatives also envision the project to become a tourist attraction in the area. “The wind turbines emanate a sense of majesty and architectural beauty that will makes it a perfect photo backdrop for visitors,” TAREC said.

The project was built prioritizing reliability, efficiency and durability. Key components of the facility -the ring main units for the wind turbine generators, the vacuum circuit breakers for the main switchgear and the protection relays for the protection panels of the substations, along with the training to operate these systems were part of the end-to-end solution provided by Schneider Electric. These components were designed and installed to protect the wind farm from many system faults, ensuring reliable production all-year round.

TAREC expressed confidence in their choice of design and components as Schneider Electric’s products and services are known to be one of the most reliable in the world. Schneider’s years of experience in the industry made them the brand of choice for most energy projects, especially renewable energy facilities such as wind farms.

“We look forward to the advancements this infrastructure will bring to Guimaras.  So far, we’re happy that we have used advanced solutions from Schneider Electric to power this wind farm,” stated TAREC.



The San Lorenzo Wind Farm consists of 27 wind turbines, each generating 2 MW of energy. The project is expected to contribute to the global effort of reducing greenhouse gas emission in the atmosphere estimated at 1.3 million tons of carbon dioxide over a 20-year project lifespan.

Nips partners with SoFA and MYX in celebrating the talented youth of today







The Nips chocolate that we grew up with, yes that rainbow-colored colorful candy-coated chocolate local brand that I used to buy in the sari-sari store and used to munch with high school friends.
 I remember buying 5 sachets and separate colors from red to yellow to blue, and would put it in a separate mini container and eat it accordingly with the siblings when we played Monopoly.  At the end of the game, the winner gets to eat the red ones and would bite on it non-stop until he/she produced the reddest tongue with chocolates on and we all would die of envy. The childhood memories still clings up to this moment.




I just discovered recently during the  Nips Pop Fest 2015 event that Nips comes with variant of flavors including my favorite peanut and fruit and nut and they have added violet or purple candy chocolate nip to their rainbow colored coated candies. Plus, we together with blogger friend Cristelle enjoyed the free-for-all coloring wall with exciting patterns waiting to be filled, its like youre in a giant Colorfy, and joined the Slow Mo booth which enabled us to take wacky slow motion videos with colorful and fun accessories on.



Colorful candy-coated chocolate brand, Jack ‘n Jill Nips, celebrated the youth’s creativity and talent with its Nips Pop Fest 2015 last September 19. The event was hosted by TV host Robi Domingo and VJ Ai with performances from Itchyworms.

Jack ‘n Jill Nips partners with SoFA Design Institute and MYX  showcasing entries for the Nips T-shirt Design Contest. Winners of the t-shirt design contest were also awarded as much as P100,000 during the event.






During the colorful festivity, Nips awarded special prizes to the winners of the HaNIPS music video-making contest.

The music video-making contest is Nips’ way to add a twist to its well-known jingle. The contest, in partnership with local music channel MYX, engaged the creativity of today’s youth to come up with their interpretation of the jingle and turn it into a music video.



A grand prize worth P100,000 was awarded to the PinakaHaNips (best overall music video) video of 24-year-old Kharleigh Macapagal. She created a video of a quiet day at the beach with nature doing its own magic, unleashing its own array of colors.

“I just focused on the personality of Nips and how it brings color to any situation anytime, anywhere,” said Macapagal. “And even the whole process of brainstorming and producing the video and jingle, it was really like Nips – pure, unadulterated fun with my siblings and cousins who helped me get things done.”

Macapagal’s entry entitled “Rainbow Connection” also won P50,000 for bagging the HaNIPS with Nips (best use of Nips products) and HaNIPS sa video (best in video execution) special awards.

A close contender to the PinakaHaNips video was “Let’s Make a Rainbow” from aspiring filmmaker Alvin Cabalhug. His video and jingle focused on highlighting the teeming love and friendship seen when sharing a bag of Nips. Cabalhug received P50,000 for winning the HaNIPs sa Song (best in musical score) and HaNIPS sa lyrics (best in lyrics) special awards.

“I am really grateful that my entry is being recognized. Song-writing and filmmaking are really my hobbies, and these have been great avenues for me to showcase my skills,” said Cabalhug.




The side attractions were not short of entertainment as well. Attendees got the chance to explore booths that were all about pops of color such as the face painting booth and a free-for-all coloring wall with exciting patterns waiting to be filled. Treat carts were also in place for every happy snacking need. Also, the Slow Mo booth enabled the guests to take wacky slow motion videos of themselves with matching props and confetti. To complete the fun, mall goers received a special Nips premium item after visiting all booths.



“Jack ‘n Jill Nips continues to create and innovate to give more pops of joy to its consumers,” says URC Marketing Director for Confectionery Jane Bernardo. “With Nips, there are more ways to bring out one’s playful side with activities such as the Nips Pop Fest 2015.


Nips Pop Fest HaNips music video-making contest winner Kharleigh Macapagal took home as much as P200,000 for her “Rainbow Connection” video.
