Run Teacher Run: Start 2018 Right with this year’s ColorManila’s CM Paradise Run

Celebrities and athletes can’t wait for the biggest and most colorful run to take place in the country – ColorManila’s CM Paradise Run, scheduled on January 7, 2018, at the SM Mall of Asia (MOA) Event Grounds, in Pasay City.

Bb. Pilipinas 2017 4th Princess Zara Carbonell says, “The best part of the ColorManila experience is its ability to keep you in the moment, reminding you that it is worth celebrating. Above all, it is the warmth of everyone who joins. It definitely feels like coming home.”

TV Host Sam YG, who also regularly hosts the post-New Year run says, “It’s always mas fun, pag may ka-ColorManila run.”

In a live interview for ANC, ColorManila VP Justine Cordero says, “When you start joining a ColorManila race, you go through the race route, we don’t want you to hurry up and just aim for the finish line. It’s not about that. You enjoy the journey, you enjoy each color station, you roll in the streets, we see runners do ‘color angels’ and take photos. Because these memories are going to last forever.”

Teacher Insights: Happy Bloggers’ Holiday at the Annual Filipino Bloggers Network (FBN) Get Together Party

December 2017 is indeed a blessed month for me. Full of parties and get together with family members and friends. And one of the events that I enjoyed most last year is the night of fun, surprises and sharing during the annual Get Together party of the Filipino Bloggers Network (FBN), one of the most active bloggers group in the country, last December 12 at Salu Restaurant in Quezon City.

With almost 2,000 members across the country, FBN continues to expand as it provides a venue for Pinoy bloggers to interact with other members through discussions and posting opportunities from different brands and PR partners as moderated by co-admins Divine Reyes and Richard Mamuyac. MetroBuzz Bloggers, led by its admin Lariza Garcia, even made the event more fun-filled and exciting in its fifth year.

This year, I volunteered to be one of the main host of the event and it was indeed challenging but awesome to go beyond my comfort zone and start interact with my fellow bloggers and PR friends throughout the event. 

Salu, fast becoming a popular Filipino restaurant, serve as the venue where FBN members took the opportunity to share great food and drinks, games, and of course, stories and experiences among fellow online writers and influencers. The few hours of fun-filled event were not enough thus the next get-together of the group promises to be bigger and better.

Another co-main sponsor is SvelT’i, a skin clinic that provides advanced health and beauty services using state of the art technology.

Teacher Eats: The Muhlachs are back, with the Nostalgic and Family-loving Chickenjoy TVC

As a kid, I never imagine falling in love as a main goal in life. Apart from cherishing my toys and playing, there’s nothing I can busy about during my play stage. Until Aga Muhlach, one of the country’s most memorable matinee actor in the 90’s came in, things had change. I experienced my very first HAPPY CRUSH in this guy and boy what memorable it is. He has graced the silver and TV screens as a teenage matinee idol to a serious performer—and one of the most sought-after endorsers during his heyday. He has been one of the most popular endorsers of Filipino fast-food titan Jollibee for over 25 years and churned out TV commercials for the brand that are now permanently part of Pinoy pop culture.

Aga has always been a vital member of the Jollibee family, all throughout his transformation as one of the country’s hottest bachelors to upstanding family man. In fact, his twins Atasha and Andres have even starred in several Jollibee commercials as young children!

This 2018, as Jollibee celebrates its 40th anniversary, Aga returns to the Jollibee family with a new commercial for Jollibee Chickenjoy. In this latest ad, the whole Muhlach family—Aga, Charlene, and the now-teenage Atasha and Andres—head over to Jollibee for a time-honored family tradition: bonding over their favorite crispylicious, juicylicious, Chickenjoy. Here we see candid and relatable moments—playful teasing, inside jokes, and even re-enactments of the iconic “Isa pa! Isa pa! Isa pang Chickenjoy!” ad—that all families, even celebrity ones like the Muhlachs, have enjoyed while sharing their favorite meal.

There are also several flashbacks of past Chickenjoy ads starring Aga and his family, which will surely serve a hefty amount of nostalgia for those who grew up seeing these commercials. We also get a generous serving of mouthwatering Chickenjoy shots, the adorable Muhlach twins as young kids, and numerous frames of Aga’s signature dimpled smile as he bites into his favorite fried chicken!

“More than the heartwarming story of Aga’s transformation over the years with the Jollibee family, this new TV commercial emphasizes how the Chickenjoy remains to be a centerpiece in Filipino family bonding time over the years,” said Cathleen Capati, Jollibee Marketing Director for the Flagship Category.  “Aga’s love for the Chickenjoy is something that he passed on and continues to share with his family, like many generations of Filipino parents.”

This new TVC is a milestone for Atasha and Andres, who are also returning to the Jollibee family with their parents.

“2018 is truly a special year for Chickenjoy and the Jollibee family as we welcome back Atasha and Andres, who represent this generation of children who have grown up in a family that truly loves Jollibee,” Capati added. “As we celebrate Jollibee’s 40th anniversary, we are cooking up more surprises and gathering more stories that highlight how Jollibee has always been part of Filipino life.”

Celebrate your family bonding time like the Muhlachs with the one and only crispylicious, juicylicious, and gravylicious Chickenjoy, available for dine-in, take-out, delivery, and drive-thru in all Jollibee stores nationwide.
