The two-day event, organized by Canadian Manufacturing, put the spotlight on the union of the elegant with the modern; the sophisticated with the funky; the nude with the colorful; and the classic with the youthful.

The trade show indeed reflects New Creation Manufacturing’s brand image as a company tailored to the Filipino consumer’s modern and eclectic lifestyle preferences. Established in 1956 as a manufacturer of infants and kids apparel locally under the brand name Hello Dolly, it soon expanded to market its products all over the globe.

In the ‘90s, it marked another milestone with the acquisition of licenses to market some of the world’s beloved brands such as Disney, Snoopy and Warner characters.

Today, New Creation Manufacturing, with its president Hiro Asandas at the helm, takes pride in being the exclusive licensee of the top apparel and beddings brands and carries sought-after character portfolio.

What makes New Creation Manufacturing stand out is not only the brands they carry, but also the quality it puts into the creation of its products. It uses high-quality cotton for most of its products. Never stopping there, it has also recently acquired the official license from Cotton USA to manufacture all its products using USA Cotton.

New Creation Manufacturing is now singled out as one of the very few manufacturers who know their customers well. Whether it’s the latest apparel designs for babies and kids, or bringing pleasurable sleeping moments to the Filipino families, New Creation Manufacturing takes excellent products and quality service to a whole new level.

Easy Taxi & Waze to promote ‘Social’ and Responsible Driving

 

IMG_4712

Easy Taxi & Waze have announced a partnership aiming at facilitating mobility and responsible driving. The campaign, which starts initially in the Philippines, Singapore, and Brazil, has common objectives of raising the awareness about the most important problems related to city transportation.

Following the theme of “Don’t drink and drive”, the campaign targets one of the growing social problems in the Philippines and comes just two months after the new strict law, prohibiting driving under the influence, was introduced by the Department of Transportation and Communications (DOTC). To additionally motivate the passengers to take a safe taxi instead of driving under risky conditions, Easy Taxi introduced a zero booking fee to accompany the campaign. Waze instead, wants to assure all users are familiar about the "Share Drive" functionality, which allows users to send a direct message or email to inform their friends and family about the arrival and eventual lateness. While all Easy-Taxi drivers are verified and tracked in real time, sharing the ride with family or friends introduces additional layer of safety, which is within the best intention of both partners. In case of any potential delay noticed with Waze's "Share Drive", worried parents or friends, can further request information from Easy Taxi about taxi location and driver details.

“We have a lot in common with Waze, but most importantly we share a mission of reducing the traffic and increasing safety of the transportation industry. The partnership will help us assure an precedented quality of the passenger service to the roads of Manila and Cebu. With the help of SMART Communications we already enabled drivers to use Waze and Easy Taxi with no barriers through zero data plans. It’s now time to bring full synergies to the table”, said Mario Berta, Easy Taxi’s Regional Managing Director.

“Safety is the utmost priority for Waze. Waze was the first navigation app to block drivers from texting and driving. The entire navigation experience, even reporting an accident, can be done by voice command. Additionally, Waze warns you about accidents and hazards on the road, thereby keeping drivers out of the most dangerous segments of road. Similarly, our partnership with Easy Taxi allows us to continue to strive for safety. By working with Easy Taxi, we’re able to offer our users the safest way to get home, while under the influence, and still enjoy the benefits of Waze since their drivers use Waze, too”, said Julie Mossler, Waze Sr. Director of Communications.

The social responsibility campaign between Waze and Easy Taxi could become a beginning of cooperation on a bigger scale between both tech giants. Onboarding Easy Taxi on Waze app could allow the latter to use it to recruit more drivers. Easy Taxi's CMO, Paul Malicki, sees it as a big step in company's efforts to expand user acquisition to new channels. “Waze is possibly the most complimentary product to Easy Taxi due to its embedded ability to help taxi drivers challenge the traffic, while it also reaches heavy commuters in the world’s biggest metropolis.

Today we run marketing on more than dozen different marketing platforms but with Waze for the first time we will be able to target passengers and drivers with unusual efficiency. We saw a very positive feedback from the drivers after adding Waze deeplink into the Easy Taxi app. There are so many possibilities to work together and we are looking forward to explore them.”

Fun with Philip and the FunKicks

 

IMG_0937

It was a rainy evening when Mr. Philip of the Lifestyle Philip together with his two Funkicks for Fashion which is Valeen  and Bryan Santos for Health and Fitness and Sports and of course Philip Abadicio, who will always be the  Lifestyle or simply a life lived in style. There are many styles, choices and preferences. Philip Abadicio wants to make sure that we all have fun while living our different lifestyles in his latest TV show, “Fun with Philip,” on GMA News TV every Saturday and Sunday from 3:00 to 3:30 p.m. starting this August 2014.

He was meant to be a lifestyler. After finishing college in U.P.Diliman, Philip and his pals setup Wild Life, a clothing store catering to cool high school and college kids. They used the heartthrobs and sweethearts of the top schools and this marketing strategy gave them sales beyond their expectations. The lifestyle editor of the Manila Times took notice of Wild Life and invited Philip to be a contributor.

The initial half page that he had to fill up would eventually be extended into 2 pages with various lifestyle news—food, fashion, parties, beautiful people, travel. The job opened doors and several lifestyle experiences for Philip. “My network expanded and I realized I really loved lifestyle news and coverage,” he shares.

During the even they graciously give a Raffle prices which is so nice for travel and some for Fitness gym  and of course Smartphone from Huawei.

Philip also interacted closely with the PR’s and publicity industry. He learned how PR is done effectively and opened RPA & Communicate, a PR agency specializing in lifestyle and society clients. “In the 90s and 2000’s lifestyle was mostly for the affluent, done in English and always featuring high-end products and services,” he relates. Things have changed since then.

In the age of reality TV, lifestyle is no longer just for the rich and those who can afford it. “I’ve always maintained that lifestyle should not just be aspirational but more importantly, it should inspire people to live their lives in style, no matter what circumstance you are in,” he explains.

After 2 seasons each of “It’s More Fun with Philip” and “Philip Lifestyle Guy,” the objective of making sure lifestyle is understood and appreciated by a wider audience has been started. In the latest offering, “Fun with Philip,” the agenda to help and entertain is pushed even further. Chosen letter senders will experience the food, beauty treatments, fitness regimen, etc. that are featured on the show. More than this, contests both on-air and online via www.philipabadicio.com will give viewers more chances of enjoying the lifestyle features on the show.

“Fun with Philip” is a show made for lifestylers. As they say on the show, “mga Kapusong Lifestylers, we will give you the surprises for you to win the prizes!” A segment called Kwentuhang Kumot, where Philip interviews a celebrity under the sheets as he or she reveals untold secrets, will be there.

IMG_0933

Philip will be joined by his FunKicks, the sidekicks or co-hosts who will help provide more fun. They are actress and commercial model Valeen Montenegro who will be with Philip to handle the Fashion & Beauty segments, and fitness coach Bryan Lopez Santos who will be Philip's exercise buddy in the Health & Fitness segments.

“The show will be a lot of fun while you learn something new and you can apply it in your lives plus, you just might win prizes too,” Philip says.

“Fun with Philip” is produced by The Lifestylers Media, directed by Ace Villena and written by Rod Divinagracia. It will air on GMA News TV every Saturday and Sunday, from 3:00 to 3:30 p.m. starting this August 2014.
