ORLY: Building Generations of Beauty and Style

ORLY, the leading nail polish brand worldwide, held a beauty dialogue featuring three inspiring Filipina women who have led significant contributions in their respective fields: Doctor Geraldine Zamora, whose strength and resolve to help her patients is known in the field of Rheumatology and Internal Medicine; Journalist Margaux Salcedo, with her crystal-clear narrative of events and places in her weekly column; and compleat Actor Pinky Amador whose talent is well-known globally, were invited to join ORLY International Vice President for Sales, Nadia Deering, in discussing the importance of women helping other women thrive in their particular areas of expertise. 

The event emphasized the need for everyone to look closely at their own uniqueness, especially in this era where one is gauged by the optics of social media and celebrate distinctiveness to promote a kinder and a more loving look of oneself and others. 

The all-white afternoon tea party last Tuesday, 19 February, at the Marco Polo Hotel also served as the launch of ORLY’s newest innovation, the ORLY Gel FX Builder in a Bottle. The product is an effortless, all-in-one, brush-on builder application that offers flawless and more natural looking nail extensions. 

Elsbeth Schutz, ORLY Ambassador, was also present to train professional nail technicians who will be the primary users of the new product. 

“For over forty years, we have delivered quality without compromise at great value and we’d like to keep that streak going with the Builder that hopes to disrupt all the nail care offerings of today,” she said. 

“Compared to Acrylic or Hard/ Soft Gel, the Builder allows for an easier application, has flexible strength that eliminates painful cracking, and follows a fuss-free soak-off removal that actually protects your natural nails and allows them to grow,” she furthered. 

Deering gave a style report on nail care trends and top polish colors this 2019, with the nude tones getting a shimmer and glitter upgrade and the bolder colors of Vibrant Reds and Aqua Blues being a staple of everyone’s Summer wardrobe. Light Coral and Iridescent Pearl also make its usual rounds, renewing a fresh take on a new season. 

ORLY has built its heritage on leading through innovation and their continuous effort in reinventing the game puts them at the forefront of building beauty and style for generations to come. 

Daikin Soaring High at 10

Daikin's 10th year anniversary in the Philippines celebrates with a media conference held last February 21, 2019 at Marriott Grand Ballroom, Resort World Manila.

Dubbed as "Soaring High at 10", Daikin Philippines announce more development this year 2019. Also, they told us that a new  Daikin brand ambassador will be presented these coming days.

Daikin sets its sights on improving the Air Quality

Air conditioning is more than just the basic concept of heating and cooling as it can be further defined by improving the quality of the air to not just make the surrounding comfortable but maintain its livability as well. 

Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) refers to the air quality within and around buildings and structures, especially as it relates to the health and comfort of building occupants. Understanding and controlling common pollutants indoors can help reduce your risk of indoor health concerns.
Health effects from indoor air pollutants may be experienced soon after exposure or, possibly, years later. 

It is also an advocacy recognized by Green Building Organizations as it is very much evident how the air quality in the world is worsening thus the need to take action and make adjustments and stop compromising wellness with progress. 

Therefore, Daikin, through its various products have taken the steps to further promote the importance of IAQ and reinforcing its presence in various areas. In the residential market, Daikin has released a full range of Air Purifiers to help families in reducing the risks of illness such as asthma. While for the commercial market, Daikin has developed products that is capable of inducing fresh air that is essential to attaining the best conditions for the people occupying the space.

Revolutionizing the Residential Air Conditioning Market 

Traffic. In many ways, this word has become an absolute description of Metro Manila’s roads, which brought about the trend of Filipinos changing their lifestyles by renting or buying small spaces close to their schools or workplaces. This has, unfortunately, become the new reality. 

With this in mind, it was the aim to develop a product that perfectly fits this lifestyle, hence the development of the Super Multi S. 

The Super Multi-S is a single condensing unit that allows connection of up to 3 indoor units compared to the conventional single-split units. Though the Multi Split technology has existed for a while now, it is not suitable for the current Philippine market because most Multi-Split systems are designed or optimized to connect to up to 5 indoor units, which is just not possible given the current condominiums development trends. Thus, making the Super Multi-S perfect for smaller spaces and applications that fit the typical working-class Filipino, wherein 20 sqm. spaces are now considered a 1-BR unit. With this product’s compact design and low power output, it is not a chore to install and be energy efficient, therefore giving the user all the benefits of an Inverter Split-Type Air Conditioner at a bargain. It is truly luxury at a great value. 

Also, to be launched is Daikin’s brand new Premium Inverter, the FTKM. With the latest features that’s includes a sleek and stylish Coanda Panel Design that gives you the best air-conditioning experience. The powerful air draft does not fall on your head directly, but it is steered upward letting air circulate into the corners of the room creating a comfortable ambience. The FTKM aims to be most efficient Air Conditioner available in the market and be the mother of all 5-Star Energy Efficient Residential Air Conditioners. 


New Large Floor Standing and Enhancements to the VRV 

Daikin’s New Large Floor Standing model is the latest addition to its extensive line of Packaged Air Conditioners. With a larger capacity and superior performance, this unit aims to be the go-to product for the market in terms of various applications such as factories, airports, and of the like.

This year will also be another unveiling of Daikin’s continued innovation and improvement to its flagship product, the VRV. With the New Anti-Corrosion model, Daikin will be providing a solution to the longstanding problem that projects located in reclamation areas face. The unit features the use of a remarkably superior corrosion-resistant hot-dip Zinc-Aluminum-Magnesium (ZAM) alloy coated steel sheet product, which is 10-20 times better than hot dip zinc coated steel sheets which will enable the end users to protect their investment as well as get the best out it.

Ready to take on the mission: NorthPine Land Reinforces its Sales Team

With a more driven and positive stance, NorthPine Land, Inc. (NLI) is thrilled and all set to embark on a new chapter of its real estate journey and to clinch more wins this year. All NLI’s teams of sellers presented their pledged sales target and further fortified their commitment to the company in its recently-held Sales Kickoff at The Hanging Gardens, Fairview, Quezon City.

NLI executives (left to right), namely: Erwin Buñag (AVP for Construction Management), Benigno A. Tatunay (CFO), Wilhelmina C. de Ere (VP for Corporate Services), Ferdinand M. Macabanti (General Manager), Aileen B. Morales (AVP for Sales Operations), Paul D. Lamagna (AVP for Project Development), and Amytis S.

NLI’s Royal Court spearheads the presentation of the company’s newest developments.

Montana Views now boasts of its biggest model unit, named Rushmore which is the first and only house offered by NLI with 5 Bedrooms. Meanwhile, Montana Strands which was just inaugurated in 2018, added Nancy as a response to the increasing housing needs in Pampanga. 

Nancy (Architect’s perspective) is the new model unit at Montana Strands in San Fernando City, Pampanga. 

The company’s General Manager, Ferdinand Macabanti reminded NLI team on the importance of this year’s mission, “Our projects are constantly growing. The communities that we create are unparalleled. They’re all unique in their own way. All perfect for family living. In our country where a lot of people and families do not get to live a comfortable life they deserve, we must feel responsible to share our projects that offer only the best for them!”

The newest breakthroughs only prove that for NorthPine Land, there’s no other way but to go North. It is committed to carry on its mission to provide premium middle-income communities; the dream that many Filipinos aspire. 

Prevent the spread of measles virus in your household

Povidone-Iodine (BETADINE®) Gargle and Throat Spray effectively kill viruses

Many people are growing concerned because of the increasing number of individuals stricken with measles or tigdas across the country. The Department of Health (DOH) has raised the red flag and has declared an outbreak in five regions — Metro Manila, CALABARZON, Central Luzon, Western Visayas, and Central Visayas[2].

In these five regions alone, almost 1,400 confirmed cases of measles have been listed as of last February 7, of this number, 22 have been confirmed by the DOH to have died because of the disease. Several other regions are now also being monitored because of an increase in the number of measles cases reported there. These regions are MIMAROPA, Ilocos, Northern Mindanao, Eastern Visayas, and Soccksargen[3]and the DOH is asking them to step up their response to the disease.

Some of the most susceptible to the disease are unvaccinated young children, according to the World Health Organization[4]. But, anybody can be infected including pregnant women, teenagers, and even adults. In fact, DOH data from 2016 shows that young adults aged 16-20 are the second largest group infected by measles[5].

Measles is regarded as a highly contagious and infectious condition. It can be transmitted by coughing or sneezing or through direct contact with anyone infected with it. Symptoms include high fever that lasts four to seven days, runny nose, cough, red and watery eyes, and white spots that develop inside the cheeks. After a few days, rashes appear and then it spreads all over the body[6].

Children aged five years old or younger and adults 21 and above are especially vulnerable to complications caused by measles. Some of the common complications are ear infections and diarrhea, while severe complications include pneumonia and encephalitis[7], the latter two might even lead to death.
