For over a decade now, associates from Coca-Cola Beverages Philippines, Inc. (CCBPI) Iloilo have been volunteering in the BrigadaEskwela program of the Department of Education, helping repair and prepare public elementary and high school classrooms and other facilities before the opening of classes. This is to help ensure that these structures are ready for the students upon the start of the school year.

Last May 25, over 30 volunteers from Coca-Cola Iloilo plant and distribution center trooped to the Mayor Gerardo Gorriceta Sr. Memorial School in CabugaoNorte, Pavia, Iloilo to wholeheartedly lend a hand in the cleaning and painting of the main gate, entrance pathway, and school façade; in the painting of chairs for one Grade III Classroom; and to donate cleaning materials and liquid hand soap to support the school’s hand-washing program.


“Iloilo has long played a big part in Coca-Cola’s story in the country,” said Paz Pollentes, Iloilo Plant’s Manufacturing Executive . “As a way of expressing our thanks and giving back, we actively involve ourselves in worthwhile efforts such as BrigadaEskwela. Volunteerism has always been a fundamental part of our culture at Coca-Cola. The motivation comes from purpose or, as we say it, 'why we are inspired to work.’ We want to create a positive impact through advocacies.”

Pollentes adds, “We firmly believe in the value of education, and in giving kids a conducive environment for learning. By taking part in BrigadaEskwela, we hope to have made a lasting difference in the lives of our potential leaders of tomorrow.”


Throughout the Coca-Cola system, thousands of CCBPI associates nationwide actively volunteer their time and resources to positively contribute to programs and projects on education, health, and livelihood, and environment conservation.

As a company, CCBPI ensures that it leaves a lasting positive impact in its host-communities, as it works toward continuously strengthening partnerships with all stakeholders through environmentally- and socially-conscious policies. 



Did you know Australian table grapes can be eaten straight from the bunch? There's no need to peel or de-seed, just simply rinse before eating and enjoy its taste. This means grapes are the perfect addition to kids lunchboxes or go-to snack at work to re-energize and hydrate active bodies, which is especially helpful when you live a busy lifestyle.

Grapes are a natural super-food and adding a serving to your daily diet will give you a much needed antioxidant boost. Grapes are packed full of phytonutrients including polyphenols, anthocyanin, and resveratrol, which contribute to the protection to eye health and heart disease. Aussie grapes are particularly good for parents and grandparents as they are low GI food which helps stabilize blood glucose levels after a meal. As grapes contains 80 percent water and plenty of fiber, they also contribute to body hydration and help keep your gut healthy.

To taste the difference, head down to participating supermarkets including Rustan's, Shopwise, Wellcome, S&R, Robinson's and other major supermarkets and enjoy seasonal red, black or green grape sensations. Guaranteed that these much-loved Australian fruits will be perfectly fresh and sweet.





In this day and age, us parents are commonly letting our kids to play and watch on their gadgets. It’s a win-win situation for both of us, because we can finish chores and rest (for a bit), while the gadgets keeps them busy.

Even though there may be benefits on this kind of scenario, we should still keep in mind that physical activity, reading and other more 'traditional' activities continue to play a very important part in children's development. So from time to time, we should allot some time to bond with our kids.

Last March 24, at the SM Mall of Asia Music Hall, we took the opportunity to join Johnson’s Baby’s event: Play Days 2019: Sa Laro Natututo.

 
With their goal to make playtime more meaningful, they started their Play Days program last 2012.

“We have noticed that gadget time has replaced play time for a lot of parents and kids. However, it is actually during play time that children build many foundational life skills they need. We want to bring the fun into learning with an event that teaches parents how play time can be enjoyable and educational as well. We also made sure to give them various tips that they can do from the comfort of their own homes, so the fun does not stop with the event.” – Senior Brand Manager for Johnson’s Baby, Alde Po.


Here are the glimpse of the activities they have prepared:

Pink Showdance Zone





Yellow Imagiland


Flower Zone





Blue Think Tub



These four zones highlighted  how a child can learn different skills like problem-solving, self-expression, communication and flexibility. As a result of a leveled-up play day, Johnson's incorporated their Johnson's Baby Powder Blooms, Johnson's most fragrant powder that will be every parents' hero. It can keep our little ones fresh for up to 8 hours as they play. Johnson's Baby Powder Blooms along with Johnson's Shiny Drops Shampoo levels up the fragrance for a long lasting, refreshing no tears play day!

Johnson's Play Days Sa Laro Natututo is a call for all of us parents to recognize the importance of our little ones to be outside experiencing life actively instead of being confined to a world they only see through any digital screen. Active play allows our children to learn firsthand about the ever changing world and gives them the opportunity to have a multi-sensory understanding of the beautiful planet we live in.


Let's join Johnson's in this movement and see how free, active play will change our little ones and help them become the person we always dreamed for them to be.

We all know that mangoes are incredibly versatile as desserts. Its natural sweet flavor makes for a perfect topping, added tidbits, and it’s even good eaten on its own. But if you think you’ve seen all the possibilities this delicious fruit has to offer, local soft serve and mango connoisseur Go Mango begs to differ.

As the summer comes to a close, the coming days are about to get cooler with their new products: introducing, the Mango Milk with Brown Sugar Boba, Mango Cheesecake, and Mango Chocnut Cream.

The Mango Milk with Brown Sugar Boba is their unique take on the milk-tea craze, and quite possibly, your new favorite drink! Think fresh, sweet, and irresistibly lip-smacking mangoes served with a thick froth of full cream milk, deliciously complemented by warm boba soaked in muscovado sugar to bring out its natural, toasted sugar flavour that we simply can’t get enough. Give it a little shake and all of the flavors and elements mix together in one delicious, refreshing cup. Trust us, it’s definitely a must-try!


For the dessert lovers, the Mango Cheesecake is heavenly. Go Mango’s signature soft serve ice cream is topped with heaps of grated cheese and fresh mangoes, served in between oven-baked cheesecake crust with cream, making it two mouth-watering desserts in one decadent cup.


Last but definitely not the least, the Mango Chocnut Cream is an ode to our childhood favorite. This delightful treat is made up of layers of fresh mango slices, soft serve ice cream, and of course, the nutty goodness of Chocnut.


And because Go Mango is all about that premium dessert experience, they also have sundaes, shakes, and mango milk beverages. Among the best-sellers are the Mango Graham Sundae and the Mango Yakult Shake. They have more delicious offerings launching soon, so stay tuned!

Go Mango will also be opening two new branches in SM Manila this June and Century City Mall on July. For more details on the menu and branches, visit www.facebook.com/gomangoph.

Justice can be painfully slow in a cold-case murder, but what if the victim can reach out from beyond the grave? In the upcoming crime series, The InBetween, airing on Blue Ant Entertainment this May 31, the unhappy dead provide clues to help unravel the mystery of their demise and even help solve the most challenging cases through supernatural means.
Harriet Dyer plays Cassie Bedford, a psychic who uses her gifts to help solve mysterious cases and find peace for the dead.
Cassie Bedford (Harriet Dyer) was born with a rare gift—or curse—that allows her to see ghastly visions and communicate with the dead. With her “sixth sense,” she often contends with restless spirits seeking help in resolving their untimely deaths.

Paul Blackthorne as Detective Tom Hacket will do whatever it takes to crack Seattle’s most bizarre cases before the tracks run cold.
The dead aren’t the only ones that appear at her door for assistance, however. Detective Tom Hacket (Paul Blackthorne), and his new partner, former FBI Agent Justin Cornwell (Damien Asante), race against time to solve some of Seattle’s worst felonies. And when the tracks run cold, the two sleuths turn to Cassie. Will she hesitate to use her abilities, or will she risk her own sanity to crack the city’s darkest cases?

Former FBI Agent Justin Cornwell, played by Damien Asante, joins Detective Hacket in tracking the clues behind seemingly unsolvable cases.
Catch The InBetween every Friday, 10:35PM, starting May 31, express from the U.S., on Blue Ant Entertainment, available on SKYcable channels 53 (SD) and 196 (HD), SKYdirect channel 35, Cignal channel 120, and Cablelink channel 37.
