Midea makes your kitchen your favorite place this Christmas

Almost all homemakers recognize that their kitchen is the one place where they will stay the most this Christmas.  Regardless of whether they are fulltime mothers or working ladies who spend time in an office eight hours a day, they still have the last say on the kind of cuisine that will be laid on the breakfast, lunch, and/or dinner table.

The tension increases especially during the holidays, given the many meals they have to prepare, the many visitors they have to entertain, and the delicacies they might want to bake themselves and give away as special gifts.

Thanks to Midea, the global brand and the largest producer of consumer appliances. Holidays and all that works that goes in the kitchen can be fun. Homemakers will find that the Midea’s microwave and induction cooker are invaluable instruments in whipping up those traditional, favorite dishes preferred by their loved ones.




Midea’s microwave oven can warm up ingredients or a frozen dish in just 90 seconds.  It can prepare easy-to-cook recipes in that same amount of time. Christmas ham can be sliced and cooked in less than two minutes, prepared just in time for the noche buena and as soon as the kids come home from their caroling and partying. Other mouth-watering meat which the family loves, such as hotdogs and bacon, can come out crispier, making each bite of them memorable.

Guilty pleasures such as pork contain less than ten percent of their original fat; cooking them using traditional frying would have left the fat intact. This reduced amount of fat makes the food a bit more nutritious than normal, making this Christmas dining experience almost guiltless.

Midea’s induction cooker also provides a quick turnaround when it comes to cooking.  The time spent in cooking dishes by using an electric stove is reduced by 25 percent. This appliance has a heating adjustment option that allows for more precise cooking; the homemaker can observe the degree of heat that is being applied to the food and accordingly adjust if she has to lessen or increase the temperature.






All of Midea’s kitchen appliances have been designed to help the homemaker, the food buff, and the kitchen aficionado come up with their favorite dishes quickly, with the least amount of difficulty, but with a larger share of the nutrients and the delightful taste intact.   Homemakers using these appliances just might find that this Christmas, their usual cooking tasks have been transformed into a culinary adventure – and instead of dreading the time that they go to the kitchen, they just might look forward in staying in it.

Hydrating Healthily in Life 24/7


It is already a fact that we need water every day to keep our bodies healthy, functioning well and strong enough to withstand sickness. Yet we still go for drinks that quench our thirst and at the same time are flavorful and enjoyable to drink – juices and carbonated drinks are the usual suspects. They do taste good and give us some added nutrients; however, it is probable that some of them have chemicals that will not be as healthy as some minerals that are needed by the body.

Fortunately, Pocari Sweat, a health hydration drink by Otsuka Philippines Pharmaceutical Inc., brings hydration to a healthier but enjoyable level. Pocari Sweat is highly recommended to those who arein need of immediate hydration, most especially those who have an active lifestyle and those who suffer from dehydration because of illness.

Pocari Sweat has a refreshing mild taste, even best when it’s cold, you won’t need another beverage to wash off a strong taste and flavor from your usual drink. Yet, children as young as one year old can safely drink it. It does not have artificial coloring, no preservatives, no caffeine, and no artificial sweetener, which then makes it safe for anyone who needs immediate hydration.

Especially now during these months when “ber-month” celebrations are close at hand, numerous parties will be held with family, friends, and co-workers from before the Christmas season until the New Year.Alcohol will definitely flow and other fun activities will get you into that party mood that lasts up until the sun rises.

Those who love to go on a night out after work can get over hangover easily just by drinking Pocari Sweat before they turn in after their night cap. There is no fun in having those head-cracking hangovers.When we drink alcoholic drinks like beer and cocktail, we get dehydrated easily because we tend to do a lot of restroom breaks.

Alcohol also drains the electrolytes that our bodies need to function that is why when we get drunk, we sometimes can’t get a hold of ourselves. Coffee and some warm soup may give us some relief for a time, but still, the best way to battle hangover is to replenish our body with enough electrolytes – something that a bottle of Pocari Sweat can give.

Pocari Sweat comes in 330ml can (Php 24.00), 350ml PET bottle (Php 24.00), 500ml PET bottle (Php 35.00), 2L PET bottle (Php 125.00). Pocari Sweat is available in major chain drugstores, supermarkets and convenience stores.

Sharp’s air conditioning technologies make cool air safe and clean


Model: AH-AP18KHL
AH-AP18KHL
AH-AP18KHL
AH-AP18KHL

If you get allergies when you are in an air-conditioned environment or need an upgrade with your air-conditioning unit, go for a model that not only cools the air but also gets rid of harmful bacteria.

A lot of airborne—and potentially dangerous—viruses, allergens, and bacteria are present in our environment today, making necessary protection from the health risks they bring, especially to our kids.

Today, Sharp (Phils.) Corporation has air conditioners bring not only cool but also clean air to homes, offices, and any type of establishment on any given day and weather. Its impressive line of air conditioning products offers enhanced and “healthier” cooling efficiency compared to other brands in the market today.

What sets Sharp air conditioners apart from other brands today is the air purification system called Plasmacluster Ion (PCI) technology, a technologically advanced airflow filtration system that helps free the air from dangerous airborne threats. This helps produce cleaner and fresher air that’s 99 percent free from airborne threats – clean and safe air, inspired by nature, indeed.

AH-XP26MF
The PCI technology involves the generation of an electrical discharge that helps make and releases positive and negative ions into the air. These positively and negatively charged ions, similar to the ones found in nature, go after airborne bacteria and viruses, attach themselves to them to form highly oxidizing radicals, then finally draw out hydrogen, effectively breaking down the protein’s membrane to make them inactive. These hydrogen and oxygen radicals then combine with hydrogen and return to the atmosphere as water.

Dust, pollen, and other forms of air contaminants are also some of Sharp air conditioners’ targets. The charged ions neutralize static electricity to help prevent these contaminants—even odors—from sticking to walls and fabrics for easy collection and filtering. Because PCI technology mimics how nature cleanses the air around, it allows us to breathe fresh and clean air that is safe and chemical-free. This makes PCI air conditioning units ahead of others in the market.

A lot of people, especially in enclosed, air-conditioned rooms, will be happy to note that Sharp air conditioners are effective in protecting the home and the family, the workplace, and other establishments like airports, museums, and other public places, from unhealthy air.

Besides PCI technology, Sharp air conditioners are also equipped with Powerful Jet Stream Technology which makes everyone in the room feel cool, regardless of where they are located.

The Powerful Jet Stream Technology has a strong and direct airflow that instantly cools the body and the room 30 percent faster than the conventional split-type air conditioners. The Coanda Technology, on the other hand, throws cool air through a soft, indirect airflow from far distances to provide soothing coolness to the room, which works best for babies and sometimes the elderly. Finally, the Inverter Technology enables faster and quicker cooling, reduces start-up time, and promises effective energy operation by avoiding the cycling of compressor. The process also helps you avoid power surges, thereby saving you energy and more money.

All these technologies designed to make the customer’s life more comfortable are available in each Sharp Deluxe Split-Type Air Conditioner, as part of the company’s “Our Brand, Our Pride” philosophy; this is a commitment to uplift the quality of life of Filipinos by providing them with exceptional home appliance products – no frills, no fuss, just simple engineering marvels for you and your family.

Yoshinoya, the the country’s most popular fast-food chain that specializes in all-time favorite Japanese culinary fare, welcomed the candidates of 2014 Miss Earth beauty contest during a visit to one of its branches in Glorietta, Makati City last November 7.

Ginger Snap Christmas Warehouse Sale 2015


Updated on December 4, 2015.

The month of December is here and we're singing Christmas songs and starts to shop for gifts now.

Talking about gift ideas, you might want to head on Gingersnap's warehouse sale which is opening today and will run for two months. This has been a yearly "tradition" of sort for me and my husband since we lived a few blocks from their factory.

Just to give you an idea: a Gingersnap toddler shirt that cost P1,000 in SM outlets is only Php 100. So it's like freebie in a way but you're still paying a little.

I am not related in anyway to anyone working in Gingersnap or never been engage in any business with them. I am just a happy and satisfied customer who wants to provide the best things I can give to my son. In this case, quality clothing at lower prizes.


The warehouse sale starts from December 4 to 29, 2015. They are open from Mon - Sat except holidays. Attached is the map going to the Gingersnap Warehouse. They are open from 8 am to 4 pm from Monday to Saturday. Their address is Warehouse 19, Armal Compound 2, M.Eusebio Ave., San Miguel, Pasig City or you may call 654-3619 to 21 for more information.

TIP: If you want the items to look that you got them from a GS store or from the mall, buy GS gift boxes (there are diff. designs to choose from) that are also sold at the warehouse at Php 30 each. Price is based from last year's sale.

If you think this blogpost was helpful in anyway, kindly do at least one: Follow Woman Avenue on Facebook, comment on this post, or subscribe to this site for more updates, promos and freebies.

Japan potent collagen drink is now in the Philippines



 
Do you want a flawless and smooth skin? The good news is a quality beauty product from Japan is now in the Philippines.

Among most Asians, the Japanese are considered to possess not just flawless and youthful skin, but also live well beyond their years, with a longevity that is probably the envy of others.

It is a good thing that Filipinos can now also enjoy the benefits of not just looking young, feeling young and moving young as these same secrets are brought to the Philippines by FINE Japan Co., Ltd.

Established in 1974, FINE Japan Co., Ltd. is a nutraceutical company with a reputation to manufacture, research and develop excellent beauty and wellness supplement products that help restore youthful glow to their skin. For more than 40 years, FINE Japan Co., Ltd. is also known for its top-notch ISO 9001 certified manufacturing processes of its products, beginning with research, production to inspection that are all done in-house.

Its success was further highlighted during fiscal year 2013 when FINE Japan Co., Ltd. posted annual sales of more than JP¥ 2.6 billion, or around P1.06 billion. Its unprecedented success in the field of beauty and wellness thus prompted company officials to further expand the business.

Among its well-known creations include natural health-food supplements whose ingredients were gathered and extracted from various plant and animal sources. These were then transformed to food products, health-food supplements, even beverages and cosmetics, all discovered using outstanding product research and made by consistently following high manufacturing standards that will help contribute to a better society.

These qualities further enhanced FINE Japan Co., Ltd.’s reputation as a quality manufacturer of health and wellness products that spread throughout the world, in countries such as the USA, Hong Kong, South Korea, China and Vietnam, and now in the Philippines.

And now, added to the products that will further lift the company’s image in the nutraceutical industry is its newest and most innovative product, Premium HyC 150, which possesses some of the most natural elements that will help restore skin’s youthfulness and active glow as we advance in age.

Premium HyC 150 has a unique combination of 150 mg. of Hyaluronic Acid (HA), Collagen, and Ubiquinol, three major components especially made potent with the right amount of dosage in one sachet to effectively counter the rapid deterioration of the skin because of aging. It works from within, making it more effective than topical creams and lotions, plus the effects are more sustainable and ever increasing. The product is proven effective and truly safe for use by people who not only want to delay the effects of aging but also improve their health.   Attesting to the superior quality of the product, Premium HyC 150 has won the prestigious Monde Selection Gold Award in 2014.

“We want more Filipinos to enjoy their lives longer and healthier, and maintain youthful skin, especially for those advancing in age. With the help of Premium HyC 150 and the expertise of FINE Japan Co., Ltd., consumers can look forward to ‘revealing their new youth’ through beautiful, flawless and youthful skin they can be truly proud of,” explains Imelda Manook Tesalona, RPh, President of Fine Nutrition Trading International, the local importer of food supplements by FINE Japan Co., Ltd..

Collagen is a major component of the body that helps keep skin flexible while Hyaluronic Acid, found in the body’s skin tissues, helps hold moisture in the body, reduce skin dryness and at the same time hydrates the joints and connective tissues to prevent problems such as osteoarthritis, and even cataract.  Ubiquinol on the other hand is an antioxidant, providing energy and protects skin against free radicals.

Other elements in Premium HyC 150 include Elastin, a protein that allows the skin to “spring back” and keep it resilient and firm. Biotin, on the other hand, helps keep skin, hair and nails healthy, and ease eczema and dermatitis. 

The Pearl Coix extract, meanwhile, serves as a detoxificant and promotes clear, fair and luminous skin, while Vitamin C, a natural antioxidant, helps repair the body’s natural collagen and maintains the strength of our body’s tissues.

Premium HyC 150 is exclusively distributed in the Philippines by BrightRAY Enterprises, now available in Watsons stores nationwide. For more information, visit www.HyC150.com.
