5AZ1 releases debut single This Time I’ll Be Sweeter

STAGES has assembled five young, good looking and talented guys to form the talent management group’s boy band 5Az1. Their debut single, a remake of an Angela Boffil classic This Time I’ll Be Sweeter will be released in a few days.

5Az1, composed of Bryann, Rex, Jai, Mik, and Yang, was introduced in the TV5 singing competition Kanta Pilipinas, where they were a finalist. Since then, they have worked with some of the country’s finest musicians – most notable of which was their stint at the 2013 PhilPop Music Festival.

The boys’ recording of This Time I’ll Be Sweeter was supervised by The Company’s Moy Ortiz. Their rendition gives the Angela Boffil classic a certain updated feel, and a male point of view given to it.

5AZ1’s This Time I’ll Be Sweeter, produced by STAGES Music and distributed by Universal Records, will be available for downloads soon. The music video will also premiere on MYX.

Free Community Kids Yoga at Tantra Yoga on August 31

Free kids one yoga class for kids who are 3 -10 years old on August 31, Saturday 10:30 am – 11:20 am at Tantra Yoga.

Pretend play is one of the most powerful tools in "learning by doing." It builds on the children's use of imagination, language, and social skills. It gives them the avenue to practice interacting with others, make mistakes without being judged, explore their interests, and most of all, be more self-assured and confident as they learn that they can BE whoever and DO whatever they want!

The Kids One Yoga Class will be facilitated by KidzYoga Teacher and educator, Krissy Invento-Manalo.

This event is for the benefit of The Philippine Toy Library (PTL). The Philippine Toy Library (PTL) builds "toy libraries" in congested and depressed areas all over the country to provide poor Filipino children the rich experience of play, creativity, and imagination.

Participants are encouraged to bring an old/new toy, book, or any educational material that you are willing to donate to the Philippine Toy Library.

Tantra Yoga is located at Ground Floor, MG Building, 150 Amorsolo St., Legaspi Village, Makati
To register your children, kindly text Marcie Linao at 0917-3232768.

Enjoy the wonderful world with Sharp’s Double Washer washing machine

Our household chores, easy or hard chores in our home are our joyful activities in our life as ever. During weekend and you’re in a hurry to finish your household chores like cleaning the house and washing the clothes so you could go on a much-awaited movie marathon with the family after lunch for your much-needed “stay-cation.”

One is - our laundry. Washing clothes is easily chore out of all of them, mostly because it always doing sort, wash, fold, and iron all of our clothes. But sometimes, we don't have enough time to do it all from start to finish in a single sitting.

It’s been a stressful week at work but you still need to take care of the house. Cleaning can take an hour or two but for washing clothes, you’re looking at a minimum of 3-4 hours, especially if you’re a weekend washer. With all the dirty laundry that piled up over the entire week, it’s a cause for worry.

No worries. Sharp Philippines, one of the country’s leading names in home appliances, introduces the Philippines’ first and only washing machine with a twin washer feature.

Work double time at less the time with Sharp’s Double Washer washing machine!

Yes, every washing machine brand has a twin tub, which is a washer and spin dryer, but Sharp Philippines upped it a notch with its “double washer” washing machine that allows you to wash at twice the speed and yet saves you money in the process.

The double washer washing machine from Sharp has two washer tubs, each with a separate washing capacity to allow you to wash simultaneously both white and colored clothes. 

The first tub you can use for your “white” laundry like babies’ clothes, underwear, and your delicate ones, while the other one is for “colored” clothes, e.g., adult clothes, heavy wash and even rags. With the Sharp double washer washing machine, you have the luxury of choosing which tub to use depending on your wash load.
Exclusively from Sharp Philippines, the double washer washing machine provides up to 50% savings in washing time and effort and of course electricity consumption—you wash more at less the time.

And because of its patented cylindrical design that Sharp pioneered in the Philippines, you save more space anywhere you decide to put it in your house. Putting up the spin dryer alongside can also be easy since Sharp has spin dryers with a similar cylindrical shape. What more can you ask for?

With the Sharp double washer washing machine, you can take care of your home effortlessly and enjoy more quality time with the entire family—because  you deserve nothing less.

Enjoy the wonderful world of Sharp. Live it clean: live it with Sharp.
