I used to play bowling when I was working, and modesty aside I always win. Maybe it's about time to try if I'm still good at it by joining SM Bowling’s Millionaire’s Cup. Why am I suddenly thinking of playing again? Well, it's because SM Lifestyle Entertainment Inc., the company that carries major brands such as SM Cinema, IMAX, Mall of Asia Arena, e-PLUS, and SM Skating Rink, is giving away over 5 million pesos of prizes!



SM will be giving away P2 million and a car for the grand prize winner.

During the championship, the top victor of the grandslam finals will receive a whopping P 2,000,000 and a car.

Electrolux Delightful-E Simple to Save

Last Wednesday at Le Jardin, Taguig, Electrolux, a global leader in home appliances, showed moms how simple it is to save and share with its new, Delightful-E Simple to Save. Attended by it's ambassadors, namely, Chef Bruce, Janice Crisostomo, Chef Rosebud and Cheska Kramer, and hosted by DelaMar, the event was a success as media shared good food, good stories and made their pledge  to share.



Savings Calculator

Your daily savings may seem small but when added in a year may give you just enough funds for a brand new smartphone.To keep you motivated on your savings journey, Electrolux developed the Savings Calculator. This easy-to-use Facebook appwas designed to help you track your laundry expenses and savings. Know how much you can save when you choose smarter ways to take care of your laundry with the Electrolux Savings Calculator.

Savings Calculator Facebook Contest

To help you start your laundry savings, Electrolux is giving away the perfect laundry partner to four lucky users. Four Electrolux washing machines are up for grabs. To join, (1) like the Electrolux Little White Book Facebook page; (2) calculate your laundry savings using the Savings Calculator; (3) hit the share button found in the result page; and (4) in the caption, tell us what you plan to buy using your laundry savings, include the hashtags #DelightfulE and #SimpleToSave and post it on your Facebook page. The contest will run from August 11 to September 15, 2014.

Delightful-E Simple to Share

Electrolux’s annual clothes donation drive is back with a twist. This year, Electrolux will continue to collect and wash your donated pre-loved clothes, but will add a personal touch to the advocacy.

From simply collecting pre-loved clothes for calamity-stricken survivors, Electrolux, in partnership with Gawad Kalinga’s Trese, will add extra warmth by transforming unusable donated clothes into quilts for new born babies from orphanages and other communities.

Quilts are traditionally made to preserve a story told by each piece of fabric sewn to form it. In Delightful-E Simple to Share, these quilts will document a story of underprivileged moms helping new-borns in need. This new twist to Electrolux’s advocacy aims to show that sharing goes beyond donating clothes.“Through Delightful-E Simple, we hope to mark the difference between giving and sharing. For when we share, we freely impart a piece of ourselves—our time, effort, and concern. Hence, we are able to give more,” explains Pionilla.

Simple to Share Instagram & Twitter Contest

As we quickly approach the season of giving, Electrolux challenges you to give a bit more of yourself to those in need. Share a special piece of clothing that is close to your heart. Join the Simple to Share Instagram &Twitter Contest for a chance to win one of the four twin tub washing machines from Electrolux and Breeze laundry detergent gift packs. Follow these three easy steps to join:(1) take a photo of a special piece of clothing that you are willing to donate; (2) tell us why it’s special to you and why you wish to donate it, and (3) use the hashtags #DelightfulE and #SimpleToShare and tag @ElectroluxPH.

The Simple to Share Contest will run from August 1 to September 30, 2014.

Meralco Virtual Engine (MoVE) for Better Bill Management

If there's a subject that I hate, it is Math! I hate numbers and computation that's why I took Psychology in college.  When I got married I had no choice but to study numbers because it is required on our business. We are in lot rental business, market rental to be specific. I do the auditing every month but I can't compute for our tenants water and electric bills. I just can't get how they compute the consumption.

I'm happy to announce that Meralco's MoVE (MeralcO Virtual Engine), an iOS and Android-friendly app,  allows me to understand monthly electric bill.  And because it is easy to use, I can actually teach and help our tenants for better bill management.  

Move allows users to compute their power consumption based on their appliances’ cost per hour and length of use per day and week. The MoVE app also gives users electricity-saving tips, Meralco news updates, and these following features:

1.      Usage - tracks your electrical consumption in real time, by adding your appliances and switch them on and off in the app as you would use them at home.

2.      Calculator - lets you forecast the electrical consumption when buying an appliance or simply know how much an appliance costs to operate.

3.      Directory - easily find the Meralco branch or Bayad Center nearest you.

4.      Information - notifications on power interruptions, scheduled maintenance or Meralco events.

5.      Bright Ideas - helpful tips for your home on how to conserve electricity

6.      E-Bill - delivers your Meralco bill online for convenience

Last night's launch of Move was hosted by the funny, sexy and bright Giselle Sanchez.  Meralco introduced horoscope videos starring Giselle as she plays Madame Giselle, a fortune teller who identifies the electricity-wasting bad habits of each Zodiac sign and gives advice on how the MoVE app can help them. 



The MoVE app is available for free, on both the App Store and Google Play. For details, visit meralco.com.ph.
