Macoy Dubs and Jae Miranda unboxed the new Huawei Y7a

Global tech giant Huawei finally launched the much-anticipated Huawei Y7a smartphone, the brand’s newest entry in its famed Y Series. The Y7a sports a refreshed design and upgraded feature set fit for the trendy lifestyles of today’s youth.


An online media event held on October 29, 2020 served as the Huawei Y7a’s official debut, which included guest appearances by a couple of popular social media stars. Macoy Dubs of “Aunt Julie” fame and Jae Miranda AKA “Virtual Boyfriend” regaled the audience with their respective character bits, and discussed their favorite activities using the Huawei Y7a.


It’s no surprise that young online personalities like Macoy and Jae love the Y7a, given how Huawei highlights “Y for Youth, Y for You” as the core message behind the new device and the Y Series going forward, focusing particularly on the lifestyles and interests of the younger generation.  


A finely-crafted smartphone just for “You”

High-powered camera systems - The Huawei Y7a stands out in its segment solely because of its 48MP AI Quad Cameras, which gives users a superb shooting experience for the price. Each lens - a 48MP high-res camera, an 8MP Ultra-Wide Angle camera, 2MP Macro camera and 2MP Depth camera - works together to produce high-quality images in all scenarios, even having a dedicated Night Mode for capturing exciting moments in dimly-lit environments.


Greater battery life - A hefty 5000mAh battery powers all-day binge parties and livestreaming sessions on the Huawei Y7a, boosted by the 22.5W SuperCharge technology that refuels the phone as quick as users need it to - a 10-minute charge is enough for 2 hours of video playback, for instance.


Bigger and clearer display - At 6.67 inches, the Huawei Y7a’s FHD+ Display provides a 90% screen-to-body ratio to users’ hands for maximum visual excitement. The phone’s slim frame feels like the display flows into the hand, adding excellent tactile feedback to the vivid screen’s clarity.


Large storage and RAM - Flicking between apps seamlessly is easy with the Y7a’s 4GB of RAM, while the generous 128GB of storage means more space for high-res pictures, fun videos and exciting games. 


AppGallery: the Boutique Store of apps


Exploring the Huawei AppGallery opens up the Huawei Y7a’s incredible potential, with millions of apps populating its selection ranging from entertainment and lifestyle entries to utility and productivity-focused titles. To complement the Y7a and its amazing camera capabilities, there’s a suite of photography and editing tool apps recommended for any shutterbug.



A rewarding download experience 














A robust rewards system marks the AppGallery’s unique offerings, including a current event with survival shooter game Garena Free Fire. Downloading the game on AppGallery grants one lucky draw for users, for a chance to win incredible prizes like Lazada vouchers or premium Huawei devices like the Watch GT2, Nova 7 SE and P40 Pro.

Moms Anne Curtis and Rufa Mae Urge Parents That Teaching Kids About #SafeWash Begins at Home with Safeguard

It was in late September when the Philippine Handwashing Survey results showed that only 50% of Filipinos wash their hands properly. This “puwede na” mentality in handwashing prompted Safeguard to create the #SafeWash Movement by calling out all the ways Filipinos are not properly washing their hands. Safeguard collaborated with five of the top animation houses in the Philippines to produce a mass education video in a span of three weeks. The catchy rap song was also voiced by Gloc-9, the nation’s #1 rapper. 

Thousands of Filipinos have also tuned in to show massive support for Safeguard at the #SafeWash Raprapan sa Global Handwashing Day that went live online last October 15, 2020. In the event, Fred D’ Germ bitterly accepted his defeat with the outpouring of comments from Safeguard fans. Through presenting the message in pop culture themes, Safeguard aims to reach more Filipinos to show how proper handwashing is done. Watch the video here.

Just like the hundreds of thousands of Filipinos that witnessed the unfolding of the #SafeWash movement, Mommy Rufa also had her own takeaways. “I’ve learned a lot from #SafeWash. Akala ko dati punas-punas lang ok na. ‘Di ba pag may nahulog, punas lang pwede pa daw kainin ulit? ‘Di pala ganon kasi malakas ang kapit ni Fred D’ Germ kaya i-todo ang handwash palagi.

“The biggest takeaway is definitely changing the way we wash our hands. We all have our own habits and it may not be the right way of washing our hands to make sure our family is properly protected.” Mommy Anne Curtis expressed that her family’s handwashing habits have rapidly changed as well. She continues, “As soon as I come home, I go straight to the sink to wash my hands and I really scrub between my fingers properly to make sure that I am removing all the germs I possibly can and using the 20 second rule.”

Safeguard was also invited by the Department of Health and UNICEF to share the #SafeWash movement at the recent Global Handwashing Day Symposium on October 16, 2020. The brand shared the roots of the #SafeWash movement and how the brand is also partnering with institutions to ensure that the push on handwashing education is enabled by ensuring there is access to hand washing facilities.

Filipinos Pledge to Practice #SafeWash Habits

Continuing what started as a battle cry against hand hygiene misinformation, celebrities, online personalities, and numerous communities have shared and posted videos — spreading support for the #SafeWash movement.

Mommy Rufa Mae Quinto shares to other moms her golden rule for handwashing. “My gogogolden rule is wash to the highest level. ‘Di pwede yung nagmamadali ipupunas kung saan lalo na sa katawan natin kasi kunakalat lang ang germs. Itodo ang safe wash! Wash wash always in all ways with Rufa Mae”. Like mommy Rufa, many Filipino parents are also being more creative and expressive when teaching their children, the proper handwashing way.

This is just the start for Safeguard’s #SafeWash Movement, and it’s here to stay with the brand’s commitment to strengthen proper handwashing education.

After being presented the repercussions of improper handwashing, we must all do our part to keep ourselves and our families from germs. The safe wash way doesn’t stop within our homes but should be done even when we are in public spaces. Let us keep reminding our loved ones, share videos, and post online to help spread the word on the safe wash way of handwashing. The safety of families lies on how attentive parents can be in reminding them to wash their hands.

“Always have soap available and try to instill that habit of washing their hands for at least 20 seconds or even longer if possible.” Mommy Anne reminds parents as a precaution from the threats of illness causing germs.

The #SafeWash Movement starts with every Filipino family in their own homes, keeping their loved ones from committing the improper handwashing habits as promoted by Fred D’ Germ. Through Safeguard’s power to eliminate 99.9% of germs, and correct handwashing practices, every trip to the sink is a guaranteed #SafeWash for a #SAFEPhilippines. 

To continue your family’s #SafeWash journey, look for your favorite Safeguard hand soaps here.


Cash-in with Driver allows cash-paying commuters to enjoy safe and reliable GrabCar services by activating their GrabPay wallet during the ride

As the country looks towards a safe and sustainable economic recovery, transportation remains a key factor for many Filipinos to perform their essential activities. With public transportation adopting cashless payments, many Filipinos require help to fully embrace this new way of paying cashless for their everyday commute – and Grab is introducing a solution to address just that.


Fully rolled-out by November 2020 through an updated version of the Grab app, Cash-in with Driver allows cash-paying commuters to enjoy safe and reliable GrabCar services by simply activating their GrabPay wallets during the ride, paying cash to their drivers, and receive their change credited to their GrabPay wallets.


With GrabCar drivers spurring the cashless movement through Cash-in with Driver, cash-paying commuters can easily transition towards cashless and unlock the many benefits that GrabPay has to offer – from GrabRewards points that can be used to save on Grab transactions, dedicated deals and promotions, as well as safe and seamless cashless payments across GrabPay’s wide array acceptance partners.

“With many of our kababayans required to physically be present in their workspaces and offices, transportation remains key in effectively driving safe and sustainable economic recovery for our communities and our country. Through this innovation, we hope to help ease the cashless barrier for our commuters by enjoining our driver-partners to not only provide a safe and reliable means of transportation, but to also help more Filipino commuters embrace cashless payment, and unlock the many benefits that await them with GrabPay”, says Ronald Roda, Grab Philippines Head of Transport and Shared Services.


Cash-in with Driver will be available on GrabCar 2-seater and 4-seater in Metro Manila, GrabBayanihan Car, GrabCar 2-Seater in Cebu and Pampanga, and soon on GrabTaxi.

Colgate’s #SmileStrong campaign seeks to demonstrate the inspirational power of these remarkable individuals

In the face of natural disasters, violent conflict, poverty, and a number of deep-seated societal issues, the common Filipino’s “resilience” has constantly been held up as a shining character trait. However, a growing number of people are seeing “The Filipino Resilience” as a glorified coping mechanism, seemingly resigned to just powering through adversities with a mindset to live just to survive each day.


Optimism in Action: Giving people a reason to smile about the future


Colgate aims to reinstate the optimistic spirit behind Filipino smiles, but in such a way that galvanizes them into progressive action. Optimism in Action means people making an effort to enact positive change, tackling challenges and issues head on with a strong smile, fully believing in the bright future they aim to create. 


Everyday many people are putting their optimism in action, mostly flying under the social media radar until now: Colgate’s #SmileStrong campaign highlights and celebrates the remarkable efforts and achievements of such people, while encouraging the optimist in everyone to take action with a bright smile and win the hearts of others in the process.


#SmileStrong spotlights three exceptional individuals, or Muses, whose Optimism in Action sparked positive change among their respective communities and social spheres. Arizza Nocum, Candy Pangilinan and Brina Maxino share the same bright smile, born out of their own individual hardships and the strength they mustered to achieve what convention told them they couldn’t.


Muses of positive change

Arizza Nocum is a peace advocate, leader, and entrepreneur who co-founded KRIS, a non-profit organization promoting peace through education. Operating as libraries/educational centers for disadvantaged youth in conflict-ridden areas, KRIS is the manifestation of Arizza’s hopeful vision that people of different faiths can better understand each other through shared learning. 


Actress Candy Pangilinan is a single mom to 16-year old Quentin, who has ADHD. Candy admits to her difficult experience in raising a child with special needs, but finds that experience as rewarding as any other parent would. She wrote a book, “Mommy Dear: Our Special Love”, which details her journey on overcoming her fears and dealing with her son’s condition, and continues to challenge the stigma of being a single parent using whatever platform she can.

Brina Maxino has Down Syndrome, yet went above and beyond what was expected of her, she is now an Assistant Teacher at PEAN Integrated School and Special Olympics Global Youth Ambassador for Asia-Pacific. Brina credits her bright and positive attitude to her parents, who fully believed in her abilities and shaped her convictions that her disability was not a barrier to living a normal life.


Enacting #SmileStrong initiatives through media events and activities


Colgate champions these three muses who smile through uphill battles, who challenge the status quo with a positive outlook and shape the future with their confidence.


Colgate’s #SmileStrong campaign seeks to demonstrate the inspirational power of these remarkable individuals through a series of short videos. These videos highlight how each muse’s optimism can be transformative, their smiles powered by the belief and the drive to effect meaningful change. 


“While a lot of Filipinos may just smile their troubles away, there are those who silently do what they can, with the circumstances they are dealt with, to make their lives, and lives of other people better. And they do all of these with a smile!” says Ari Mandelbaum, Marketing Director of Colgate- Palmolive Philippines. ”[The muses] live the spirit of Optimism in Action every day, each with their own unique stories and struggles, but manage to rise above their challenges to serve as inspiration to society in their own ways.” 


Join Colgate in realizing our inner optimist’s potential for constructive change, so we can all #SmileStrong and share in the joy of those victories, big or small.

Precious bonding moments await families at The Tagaytay Highlands Country Club

“Live-Work-Play” took off as a lifestyle concept over the past few years and immediately caught on in urban environments, fostering integration of the LWP dynamic in everyday lives. However, in the thick of the pandemic, the triad lost its “play” element almost overnight, putting a new spin on LWP – “Life-Without-Play”, in which Filipino families had to endure a long-drawn-out period of quarantine restrictions characterized by tedious work-from-home routines. 


Tagaytay Highlands takes the concept of play to a whole new level of engagement with an entire slew of stress-busting outdoor and indoor activities available at designated times while keeping everyone’s safety a top priority. 


As a round of golf in two of Asia’s most exciting golf courses comes with the added value of having stunning vistas of Taal Lake, Laguna de Bay, and Mount Makiling in the distance, tee off now equals face mask plus face shield on. To further ensure the safety of caddies, club employees, and members/guests playing out in the open, the fairways remain a social distancing zone. Players, who are urged to bring their own towels and water jugs, are also responsible for handling and cleaning their golf equipment and golf carts.

To reinforce protective measures, Tagaytay Highlands’ locker rooms and showers remain off-limits as per IATF guidelines, on which stern warnings and/or players’ suspension may be issued by the clubs should breaches and violations be made. 


Notwithstanding the pandemic, Tagaytay Highlands International Golf Club continues to safely challenge players to a game of dare with its demanding 13th tee, set no less than 84 meters above the greens, and its 18th hole, which presents a test of a 150-yard-wide gully. Integrating its layout with the development’s high elevation and picturesque surroundings, the golf course combines man-made ingenuity with breathtaking natural landscapes. 


Meanwhile, Tagaytay Midlands Golf Club is home to another exclusive golf course which features picture-perfect views of Taal Lake that let players bring their A-Game while adhering to safety rules. Situated amidst a dense forest 1,000 feet above Taal Lake, the 400-hectare-27-hole championship golf course strongly appeals to the sport’s more competitive enthusiasts.


The fun is just getting started as homeowners and guests have the option to indulge in non-golfing pursuits that promote an equally active lifestyle.  

Precious bonding moments await families at The Tagaytay Highlands Country Club, the ultimate haven for sports and recreation with activities for youngsters and adults’ every persuasion. Housed within its three-level sports center is every leisure venue imaginable. In one of its multiple pools, one can either swim a few laps or simply soak up in luxury. Time to round up the gang to shoot some hoops at the indoor basketball court. You can also perfect those powerful smashes in a game of tennis or badminton. How about taking good sportsmanship to the next level at the billiards hall or the 14-lane disco bowling center?


For an up-close encounter with nature, grab your friends for an ATV trail challenge and trek the mountainside, or keep yourself healthy by pedaling your way around Tagaytay Highlands’ bike trail. Take the kids to the fishing pier and pedal go-karts to make up for lost time with your little ones. There’s also a fitness gym at the member’s disposal.


The same government-mandated health protocols are enforced at The Tagaytay Highlands Country Club. Homeowners and guests are expected to wear face masks and face shields 


outside their homes; maintain a one-meter distance from one another; and to wash hands often. All club personnel strictly follow sanitation procedures and safety protocols at all facilities in Tagaytay Highlands, such as contactless temperature scanning, regular disinfection and social distancing. To reinforce safety protocols, hand sanitizers and disinfecting foot mats are also installed in all public entrances/exits at all facilities.


Forward-thinking Filipinos who are starting to heed the call of the great indoors and outdoors will find comfort in knowing that Tagaytay Highlands has proven to be extremely efficient in complying with health and safety measures and in its delivery of quick crisis responses during adverse natural and high-risk events. 


Indeed, the serenity in places close to nature is balm to the mind, body, and spirit. As part of the exclusive benefits enjoyed by a Tagaytay Highlands member/homeowner, access to such world-class sports and recreation amenities is a sure-fire way of coping with the new normal, and to even find a permanent home space where play is integral to life more than ever.


Members and their guests may head off to Tagaytay Highlands International Golf Course Thursdays thru Sundays, from 6:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., while the Tagaytay Midlands Golf Course is open Tuesdays thru Sundays, from 6:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

For tee time reservation, players may call Golf Reception (Highlands Golf Course: 09778158237; Midlands Golf Course: 09178865228) from 7:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Wednesdays thru Sundays, and 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Mondays thru Tuesdays. The Membership Department (09178600918) is open for inquiries Wednesdays thru Sundays, from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.


Sports and recreation schedules are as follows: badminton, basketball, gym, table tennis, and lap pool facilities are open Thursdays thru Sundays, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.; bowling and billiards facilities are open Fridays thru Sundays, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.; and the bike park, trail buggy, mini-golf, fishing pier, pedal go karts, camp highlands, and the country club pool are open Fridays thru Sundays, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. For inquiries, please feel free to call 09175830848
