Dive into the 64MP camera experience with the latest realme 7i


realme Philippines, the top 2 smartphone brand in the country will complete its latest 7 Series with the realme 7i. Designed to be the companion of every Filipino trendsetter and go-getter, the realme 7i sports a new stylish mirror design inspired by nature, a quad-camera set-up headlined by a 64MP sensor, a large display with 90Hz refresh rate, and a large-capacity battery of 5,000mAh with 18W Fast Charge technology. The launch of the new 7 series device will be live-streamed on realme Philippines’ official Facebook page and YouTube Channel on October 21 at 6:00 p.m.



Young, artsy Filipinos who have been wanting to try photography can start with realme 7i’s quad-camera module which features four different lenses — a 64MP primary camera, a 119° ultra-wide lens, a macro lens and a B&W portrait lens. Its 16MP selfie camera developed for different skin types, face shapes and features allows users to take more accurate and natural-looking selfies. It is powered by a Sony IMX471 sensor that supports AI beauty, Bokeh Effect and HDR and EIS Stabilization. realme 7i’s powerful camera also has built-in filters, namely the Cyberpunk, Flamingo and Modern Gold which let users switch to different stylish night scenes with just one tap. With these superb camera features, users can take stunning selfies and elevate the curation of their Instagram feed!

For a high maintenance daily schedule of young Filipino go-getters, a phone battery that drains easily and takes too long to charge just won’t do. An all-day use and fast-charging battery is more appropriate — much like realme 7i’s 5000mAh battery with 18W Fast Charge technology. realme 7i’s large-capacity battery can last up to 20 hours of movie time and 88.5 hours of song streaming, and will only need less than two hours to fully charge.

After a long day of online school, work or chores, it’s time to catch up with friends through mobile gaming while video conferencing or have a ‘me’ time watching favorite TV series or movies. Nothing beats curling up on the bed after a long day, especially during this rainy season. With realme 7i’s 90Hz refresh rate, videos play smoother and faster and video game details look finer and sharper without lag. With a faster display response time, the screen can register and respond to touch quickly — a factor especially important for fast-paced games. Binge-watching and casual gaming experience are also elevated with realme 7i’s 6.5 inches screen display.

The top 2 smartphone brand in the country is doing an extra special realme 7i launch for its Filipino fans. A very special guest will be headlining the realme 7i launch! 

To find out who the latest realme squad member is and to get first dibs on exciting promos and prizes, realme fans are encouraged to join the Facebook live-stream launch on Wednesday, October 21, 6 p.m. 

TikTok sends love to the Filipino community in free online concert #GenTiktokPH

On October 18, 2020, content creators and local celebrities from the Philippines came together for #GenTikTokPH, a two-hour online celebration of  Generation TikTok - the diverse community that makes TikTok a place of joy, positivity and inspiration. 

 

Hosted by Macoy Dubs, Generation TikTok was streamed on the TikTok PH account via TikTok LIVE. Viewers were treated to an entertaining program filled with music and dance, side by side with pocket showcases featuring TikTok’s top trends and educational content. 

 

The show was headlined by three local artists who are all avid TikTokers, well-loved by their followers - Actor and singer, Iñigo Pascual, indie folk band, Ben&Ben, and singer-songwriter, Rico Blanco. Each performed a musical set, treating the audience to their top hits and fan favorite tracks. 



Interspersed with these musical performances were segments that underscored TikTok’s impactful content,  #TikTokU and #itStartsonTikTok. Back in May 2020, #EduTok transformed the platform into a venue for learning everything, from practical life hacks to valuable skills for various careers. Giving the spotlight to educators and professionals like life coach Lyqa Maravilla, pharmacist Arshie Larga and medical intern Kilimanguru. The hashtag is now at 2.3B views and counting.

 

#GenTikTokPH did not fail to include what TikTok was first popularly known for -- trending dance challenges.  TikTok dance creators shared the spotlight to pay tribute to one of TikTok’s biggest trends, Savage Love (Laxed Siren Beat). Each creator put their own spin on the popular dance trend, which features a catchy tune by Jason Derulo.

 

Meanwhile, the recently concluded campaign #itStartsonTikTok showed how the TikTok community pioneered trends and made online stars out of their favorite creators, and established a safe haven for self-expression and showcasing talents online. Adding more color and diversity to the ever-growing platform, veteran actress Gina Pareño testified how welcoming the TikTok community had been to her.

 

These viral hashtags are nods of approval to the culture that is very Filipino - value for education and love of entertainment.

 

Generation TikTok is here. Everyone has a unique talent to share or a compelling story to tell. We are a community that supports and welcomes the creator in everyone. Through positive, joyful, and inspiring stories, we are spreading happiness and hopefully changing the world, one TikTok at a time,” said John Castro, User and Content Operations Manager, TikTok Philippines.

 

Co-presented by SM Supermalls and Grab, with major sponsor TNT, Generation TikTok was truly a memorable event for all those who took part in the program, and the audience who enjoyed the show.

McDonald’s Philippines partners with the National Task Force against COVID-19 (NTF) to provide free COVID-19 RT-PCR testing for its store employees

Quick service restaurant giant, McDonald’s Philippines, has partnered with the National Task Force against COVID-19 (NTF) to provide free COVID-19 RT-PCR testing for its company owned and franchised store employees in NCR as part of the company’s continuous focus on health and safety under its M Safe program. 


This partnership of NTF with McDonald’s reinforces the collaboration between the public and private sector for testing and isolation programs.  The community testing initiative aims to ensure a safe workplace for its employees and dining experience for its customers. McDonald’s has also recently committed to implement the StaySafe.ph app in its restaurants to improve contact tracing protocols. 


McDonald’s Philippines master franchise holder, Dr. George T. Yang, opened the first McDonald’s store in Morayta, Manila in 1981. Since then, McDonald’s in the Philippines has been a strong and relevant player in the country’s quick service restaurant industry, having grown a store network of over 640 across the country. McDonald’s Philippines continues to elevate its community relevance through Ronald McDonald House Charities and McDonald’s Kindness Kitchen in response to COVID-19 pandemic.

 



“The safety of our employees and customers has always been at the core of our operating culture. It is because of this that we continue to explore and partner with the government and the private sector, to keep the public safe. We believe that more than ever, we have to come together to fight this pandemic to re-start the economy safely and protect the employment of more Filipinos,” said McDonald’s Philippines President and CEO, Kenneth S. Yang.


Beginning September 28 in Palacio de Maynila, one of the Mega Swabbing Facilities set up by the NTF, employees of the company have started to get tested. The company aims to test over 19,000 of its crew and managers in four identified Mega Swabbing Facilities at Mall of Asia Arena (Pasay), Philippine Arena (Sta. Maria, Bulacan), Lakeshore Bicutan (Taguig), and Palacio de Maynila (Manila). 


McDonald’s will also be donating three (3) testing booths to one of its long-standing community partners, Pasig City, to support their testing initiatives. 


McDonald’s employees will be properly guided and assisted by the company from scheduling, conduct of testing to the release of the results. To limit exposure of the employees and to ensure that the restaurant continues to operate smoothly, only a limited number or crew and managers are scheduled per day. Members of the restaurant management team arranges for the transportation going to the Mega Swabbing Facility, provides assistance on-site for the testing and coordinates the release of results.

Should an employee test positive, McDonald’s will remain in compliance with all the government mandated protocols and will support its employees until they are able to go back to work.  


“Through this expanded testing program which we are launching today, you shall not only be ensuring the health and safety of your employees, but also their families and those they come in close contact with every day,” says Secretary Carlito Galvez Jr, Chief Implementer of the National Action Plan Against COVID-19 (NAP COVID-19).


“As we combat the virus, we are very grateful for proactive partners in the private sector such as McDonald’s. Their initiative to test their employees significantly helps strengthen the government’s testing and contact tracing program. We encourage other businesses to follow suit in helping to safely reopen the country’s economy,” says NAP COVID-19 Deputy Chief Implementer Secretary Vince Dizon.


Since the announcement of the enhanced community quarantine, McDonald’s Philippines has been reinforcing its commitment towards safety of people. Under its M Safe program, the company introduced new protocols such as dedicating a safety manager in all its stores and implementing a no-touch policy for Drive-Thru and McDelivery services to ensure employee and customer safety. 


Safeguard taps the best filipino rappers to "Raprapan sa Global Handwashing Day"

Hundreds of thousands of Filipinos tuned in to the most controversial online rap battle of the year — with an exchange of hand hygiene rhymes to the tune of sick beats, Safeguard and Fred D’ Germ took over the screens and Philippine social media feed last October 15, 2020 with the Raprapan sa Global Handwashing Day.

Raprapan sa Global Handwashing Day

Aiming to shut down Fred D’ Germ, his motives, and to strengthen education on safe wash practices, Safeguard tapped the best of the best in the Filipino rap community to help them promote proper handwashing habits. Some of the biggest rap names in the country — Loonie, Ron Henley, and Shehyee were more than willing to lend their flow and bars to Safeguard. Fred D’ Germ on the other hand influenced Shanti Dope to rap for his agenda.  

With stars like Gloc-9 as the judge, host Luis Manzano, and co-hosted by Rufa Mae Quinto and Mimiyuuuh, coveted by thousands of excited fans — The Raprapan sa Global Handwashing Day between Safeguard and Fred D’ Germ was livestreamed simultaneously at Gloc-9’s, Fred D’ Germs’, and Safeguard Philippines’ Facebook Pages. 




Tense as it can be — the event started out with a competitive aura. Shanti from team Fred D’ Germ, started the rap battle with steaming hot lines, but Loonie, Ron, and Shehyee aren’t the best for nothing and gave back piping hot bars for Round 1. Tides were slowly turning during Round 2, and odds were seemingly in team Safeguard’s favor. The comment section during Round 3 was wild. Everyone was on their feet, hands were being thrown in the air, and breathes were being held. Team Safeguard was fast in their delivery, though they made it clear that fighting germs shouldn’t be rushed. When both teams were done with Round 4, majority of the comments were rooting for team Safeguard. 


Bursting with excitement, Gloc-9 announced Safeguard as the winner of The Rap-rapan sa Global Handwashing Day. Gloc-9 praised team Safeguard in their ability to express the importance of practicing Safe Wash hand hygiene, “Hindi dapat mabilisan lang, wisik, punas lang, may tamang paraan. Doon talaga nagkatalo — sa paggamit ng Safeguard. Kaya walang binatbat si Fred D’ Germ.” Even Shanti Dope admitted that the Safeguard team made good points and he has changed his mind to practice Safe Wash. 

Talk of the Town, Rap Battle of the Year

With much anticipation, Filipinos — rappers, frontliners, parents, and even their kids — tuned in to watch the rap battle of the year on handwashing. Netizens shared various reactions on the exchange of lines between Safeguard and Fred D’ Germ, dominating local trends during the Raprapan sa Global Handwashing Day. Inspired by the creative delivery of a timely message, Filipino netizens also wrote their own rap lines and posted videos, spreading the word on safe wash handwashing. Days after the event, the #SafeWash Movement has piqued the interest of Filipinos. Many were proudly posting photos and videos of them practicing proper hand hygiene, calling the attention of their friends and loved ones to do the same as well. Even celebs and influencers have shared their reactions online, encouraging Filipinos to follow Safeguard’s call to join the Safe Wash Movement. 


Fred D’ Germ seemed unstoppable, until Safeguard came into the picture. After releasing his rap track “Hugas Na Rin ‘Yan!” — concerned Safeguard rebutted with their own music video. Check it out and see how the Fred D’ Germ and Safeguard feud started.




Make Every Wash #SafeWash 

To effectively get rid of illness causing bacteria, Safeguard advises the Filipino public to follow these simple tips when washing their hands. Wet your hands using clean water. Lather the front and back of both hands, between fingers, and under your fingernails with Safeguard liquid soap for at least 20 seconds. More germs are removed the longer you scrub. Once done scrubbing, rinse hands under clean, running water. Dry hands completely with a clean towel.

Safeguard believes that with every Filipino passing on the vision of proper hand hygiene education, Safe Wash can become the only way we know how to wash our hands. With high hopes, Safeguard continues with its mission in putting an end to “Pwede Na” handwashing habits, to ensure that every Filipino family is safe against 99.99% of germs causing bacteria through every handwash.
