Cebu Pacific (PSE: CEB), the Philippines’ leading carrier, is set to exceed its Cebu hub’s pre-pandemic network and capacity which will hit 129% in June, as the airline raises to 28 its combined domestic and international routes operating in Mactan-Cebu International Airport (MCIA).

CEB will start operating direct flights between Cebu and Taipei daily starting June 23, increasing its network from MCIA to a total of 23 domestic and 5 international destinations. CEB will also ramp up its flight frequencies to 11 of its destinations from Cebu.

The new and resumed flights from Cebu as well as the additional frequencies are expected to increase the total number of seats by 21%, equivalent to 76,000 more seats per month.

To support this expansion, CEB will increase its Cebu hub's fleet to 13, with 2 additional aircraft to be based at MCIA. The added aircraft are on top of the 10 new Airbus NEO aircraft that will be delivered in 2023 to expand the airline’s entire fleet.

The airline previously announced that it would operate direct flights from Cebu to Naga starting March 26 and resume flights to Hong Kong and Narita from Cebu on March 26 and May 1, respectively.

"Cebu Pacific is proud to have its largest base outside Manila in one of the best airports in Asia. We are excited to further expand our Cebu hub to connect more travelers to some of the world’s best beaches and islands,” said Candice Iyog, Cebu Pacific Chief Marketing and Customer Experience Officer.

To encourage passengers to travel, CEB is launching a special seat sale from March 20 to 23, allowing travelers from Visayas and Mindanao to book their flights to select domestic and international destinations for as low as PHP 1 one-way base fare, exclusive of fees and surcharges. The travel period is from June 1 to September 30, 2023.


The expansion of the CEB’s hubs in Clark and Cebu comes as the airline turns 27 years old this March. The airline celebrated the milestone by holding a special anniversary gathering at NUSTAR Resort and Casino in Cebu City.


CEB flew its maiden voyage from Manila to Cebu on March 8, 1996. Since then, the airline has made it its mission to enable every Juan to fly by offering affordable and accessible flights and continuously ramping up its network.


CEB currently flies to 34 domestic and 25 international destinations, spanning across Asia, Australia and the Middle East.

“Push Na `Yan With My Daily Fiber” PascualLab’s fiber food supplement brand C-Lium Fibre

Three years into the pandemic but moving towards a sense of normalcy in our lives, C-Lium Fibre, the top-of-mind psyllium fiber brand¹ is inspiring Filipinos to realize their health goals through habit formation so they can continue to be more present for the people who matter in their lives. 
With its 2023 campaign “Push Na `Yan With My Daily Fiber” PascualLab’s fiber food supplement brand C-Lium Fibre hopes to create awareness of the importance of good lifestyle and nutrition habits and how these can prevent chronic diseases. ² 
Healthy Lifestyle 
Daily habits such as exercising for 30 minutes a day, getting around eight (8) hours of sleep, and managing your stress can do wonders for the health.³  
Proper Diet and Nutrition 
Equally important to a healthy lifestyle is getting the right nutrients. With a focus on fiber, the campaign hopes to impart the benefits of fiber as part of our day-to-day nutrition and how daily supplementation can help deter chronic diseases. 
Fiber for Fitness 
According to research, getting enough fiber can help prevent heart disease, diabetes and regulate bowel movement. ⁴ 

One rich source of fiber is psyllium fiber which pushes away toxins from the body. It has soluble and insoluble fiber which works in two ways: 
1. It binds excess bad cholesterol, excess fat, and sugar and  
2. Pushes them out of the body. ⁵  

According to DOST-FNRI, we need at least 20 to 25 grams of fiber daily.     
I-Push Na `Yan With My Daily Fiber 
C-Lium Fibre has both 100% natural soluble and insoluble fiber in convenient formats: capsule and husk. A daily dose of a sachet of C-Lium Fibre alone can give you 5 grams of fiber which is equivalent to 5 cups of Romaine lettuce, 8 cups of cooked white rice, or 3 medium-sized tomatoes.7 
C-Lium Fibre’s husk format comes in regular and flavored variants. 

C-Lium Fiber in Four Easy Steps 
C-Lium Fibre is easy to take: 
1. Pour a sachet of C-Lium Fibre husk into half an 8. oz glass of water2. Stir for 10 seconds. 3. Drink immediately and completely. 4. Follow with another glass of water or juice.  

For capsule, take 5 capsules before breakfast and 5 capsules before dinner to get the equivalent of 5 grams fiber. 
C-Lium Fiber is available in all leading drugstores and supermarkets nationwide, and at PascualLab’s official Lazada and Shopee stores.

Babyflo aims to be every Filipino’s buddy towards an eco-friendlier lifestyle


Babyflo, a trusted brand under Philusa Corporation, strengthens its commitment to giving the best care for our daily hygiene needs while caring for the environment with the recent launch of its - new line of eco-friendly cotton buds.


Philusa has long been a key advocate for sustainability, with the primary vision of delivering greener alternatives for many of their iconic brands such as Babyflo and Cleene, where they have implemented biodegradable, recyclable, and other sustainable options for their products as well as campaigns calling for effective actions for the environment. 

According to the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR), the Philippines is losing approximately 52,000 trees per day. Every year, 47,000 hectares of forest, an area roughly three times the size of Quezon City, is destroyed by logging, slash-and-burn farming, and land conversion. Recognizing the serious environmental issues the country is currently experiencing, Filipino consumers are becoming ‘reuse revolutionaries’, which means that they are more aware of the disastrous impacts of waste in our landfills and the environment. Hence, consumers are now keen on making a difference and ensuring that they are having a positive impact on the planet we live in. 

One of the ways consumers can live a greener lifestyle is by looking at the products we use on a regular basis and switching to a more eco-friendly option. Babyflo is here to make living a sustainable lifestyle easier by giving us an earth friendly choice of cotton buds – Babyflo Gentle Buds Eco-friendly, the first Earth-minded cotton buds in the market made of 100% pure cotton tips, unbleached paper stems that come from responsibly managed forests, and biodegradable packaging so families can make their personal care routine greener.


“The journey toward our goal starts with a single step. Through this product, Babyflo aims to be every Filipino’s buddy towards an eco-friendlier lifestyle,” remarked Mr. Neogin Evangelista, Philusa Corporation President and General Manager. “Philusa being a homegrown Filipino brand, has always been at the forefront of taking small steps and sometimes even big leaps towards a greener Philippines.”

Babyflo Gentle Buds Eco-Friendly sources its paper from managed forests thereby ensuring that every tree that is used to make the product is replaced. 


“One thing that prevents us from living a more sustainable lifestyle is the lack of eco-friendly options. Now that this product is out and available, we hope that it could encourage more people to choose a greener lifestyle and inspire them to be more mindful of their everyday choices,” said Jacquiline Pe, Brand Manager of Babyflo Cotton buds. 


Aside from personal hygiene, Babyflo Gentle Buds Eco-Friendly can be used for a variety of tasks, such as removal or application of cosmetic products,  application of medicine on injuries / wounds, and removing smudged nail polish, to name a few. The unbleached paper stems are sturdy, and the 100% pure cotton tips are also durable, which makes them ideal for different uses.

Start your budding green lifestyle with Babyflo Gentle Buds Eco-friendly, now available in Mercury Drug, Robinsons, Puregold, Metro Gaisano, and other retail stores nationwide and online.

PLDT Home’s Madiskarte Moms PH (MMPH) online community bags the prestigious Grand Anvil Award

PLDT Home’s Madiskarte Moms PH (MMPH) online community won the prestigious Grand Anvil Award, the highest honors at the 58th Anvil Awards this year. The community’s first ever annual awards that celebrates exceptional mompreneurs, Gawad Madiskarte 2022, was also a recipient of a Gold Anvil Award under the PR tools category.

Understanding the increasing financial responsibilities that their families face, PLDT Home and a group of Filipino moms launched Madiskarte Moms PH in September 2020. A Filipino term for someone resourceful, “madiskarte” fittingly captured the spirit of Filipino moms who took on the challenge of digital entrepreneurship amid the pandemic.

 Madiskarte Moms PH also launched the first ever Gawad Madiskarte 2022: A Tribute to Outstanding Filipina Mompreneurs on Women’s Month last March 2022, which also won a Gold Anvil Award. It is an awards ceremony that recognizes exceptional mompreneurs who thrived despite the hardships brought about by the pandemic. MMPH honored mompreneurs who overcame challenges and flourished during these trying times. 


Madiskarte Moms PH also previously won a Silver Stevie Award for Innovation in Community Relations or Public Relations at the 2022 Asia-Pacific Stevie Awards.


The Anvil Awards, presented by the Public Relations Society of the Philippines, is the "Oscars" of public relations in the country where they recognize the most excellent and outstanding PR programs and tools every year.
