Celebrating a family occasion amidst the pandemic


Celebrating a family occasion amidst the pandemic


It’s been more than a year since the pandemic started. We are still celebrating birthdays, holidays, and other family occasions without the usual things that we love to do. Due to the ongoing restrictions, we may be missing out on dine-ins, out of town vacations, and gatherings among family and friends.

Virtual parties during this pandemic are the current alternatives for special events. But a family celebration can still be special. It's simply a matter of being more creative with what you have.

Make the start of the day special
Begin the day by preparing a superb breakfast. Play some music to make it livelier and more memorable.

Deliver love to your home
This is perfect for those who are away from their families. Let your family feel your presence by surprising them with the delivery of food. For birthday occasions, you can book a delivery for a cake and balloons.

Doing things together at home
The country has eased up restrictions on certain tourist spots. However, activities at home remain to be hassle-free and with fewer worries.

Play board games, watch movies, or do other things with your family at home. Bring the spa experience to the comforts of your own place!

Party virtually!
Who wouldn’t love to catch up with your long-distance relatives and friends? Video conference platforms are available for us to use. Just send them a link and let the party begin - virtually!

The gift of health
For every special occasion, the best gift is good health and safety. Aside from staying at home, you can speak to your family about immunization against COVID-19 and other vaccine-preventable diseases.

There are already approved COVID-19 vaccines here in the Philippines. Everyone is encouraged to sign up for vaccination. Local government units are giving free COVID-19 vaccines.

The pandemic is far from over, but by getting vaccinated, we are moving a step closer to achieving herd immunity. Soon, we may be back to face-to-face reunions and other gatherings! To get the latest updates in immunization, visit Call The Shots PH Facebook page:

Call the Shots PH is an awareness campaign to protect expectant parents and their children from vaccine-preventable diseases. This advocacy is brought to you by MSD in the Philippines.

Petron Blaze Racing Team Wins 12-hour Endurance Cup


The Petron Blaze Racing Team on the podium 

(L-R): Powee Base, Jevoy Moreno, Mon Dimapilis, Moses Dumaguing, Mikko Rayo, and Rod Chang.

Petron Blaze Racing Team Wins 12-hour Endurance Cup

Attests to Winning Combination of Petron Fuels and Lubricants


The Petron Blaze Racing Team emerged as Class 2 champions in the recently concluded Petron Kalayaan Cup, a 12-hour endurance race held at the Clark International Speedway to celebrate Philippine Independence Day last June 12.


Driving a vintage Honda Civic EK with a surplus engine, the Petron Blaze Racing Team — headed by pilot-businessman-race car driver Mon Dimapilis, along with teammates Jevoy Moreno, Mikko Rayo, Moses Dumaguing, Powee Base, and Rod Chang — bested the other cars in its class by accomplishing 241 laps within the 12-hour period.


With Petron Blaze 100 as the official fuel for the endurance run, all competitors were able to benefit from the high-performance advantages offered by this 100-octane pure gasoline. What distinguished the Petron Blaze Racing Team was the added advantage of also using Petron Blaze Racing engine oil as lubricant, creating the perfect winning combination.


According to Dimapilis, they started using Petron Blaze Racing oil since their car preparation and shakedown in early 2021 to properly tune the engine and optimize its performance.


During the race itself, the team was confident that the engine would be able to handle the extreme conditions of the 12-hour endurance run due to its outstanding properties in terms of thermal stability, viscosity, and overall engine protection.


Dimapilis notes, “In the past, using other oil brands, we needed to top up around 3-liters within 12-hours. Using Petron Blaze Racing oil, we only needed to add 1-liter. For everyday use and in practical terms, this means that Petron Blaze Racing is also actually more economical because it is more long-lasting while delivering superior performance. We did not experience any knocking, pinging, or detonation. The engine was able to endure the high rpms and track heat, while maintaining efficiency. More importantly, we were able to maximize the high-octane formulation of Petron Blaze 100 through consistent fuel burn.”

He adds, “Considering that we were using an old surplus engine, we were still confident that with the protection of Petron Blaze Racing oil, our engine would not overheat and would continue to run smoothly. Matched with the high-performance Petron Blaze 100 gasoline, we could feel the instantaneous engine response, smooth acceleration, and greater power.”


Testifying to the perfect winning combination of Petron Blaze 100 gasoline and Petron Blaze Racing engine oils, the team was very pleased with their strong showing in the 12-hour Endurance Run and are optimistic that they will do well in their motorsport campaign this year.


According to Dimapilis, “Using Petron Blaze Racing oil, we have a very healthy engine with the same power output when dyno-tested before and after the punishing 12-hour endurance run. This means there was no degradation in engine performance. Plus, of course, using Petron radiator coolant, we also added an extra layer of protection to our cooling system.”


Industry leader PETRON Corporation is recognized for introducing innovative products and services that are specially formulated for Philippine driving conditions.

51Talk celebrates teachers’ day with the biggest virtual gathering of online teachers

More than 10,000 online English teachers enjoyed a day of entertainment, games and performances at 51Talk’s annual teachers gathering. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, 51Talk had to innovate and conduct the annual offline event online which allowed its teachers from the farthest places in the Philippines to watch and enjoy the celebrations.

Manila, Philippines - Leading online English education platform 51Talk held its annual Teachers’ Day gathering via a virtual event attended by over 10,000 of its online English teachers from all corners of the Philippines. The event, called “51TalkFlix: Your Future At Home,” was streamed live via their website and YouTube and it aims to honor and celebrate the teaching profession this teachers’ month. Over 2 million pesos worth of prizes were raffled off during the event including exclusive 51Talk merchandise, gift certificates, gadgets, appliances, and laptops.

51Talk celebrates teachers’ day with the biggest virtual gathering of online teachers

51Talk Country Head Jennifer Que kicked-off the virtual teachers’ day gathering with a message of thanks and acknowledgment of the teachers who tuned-in in the show.

“We always have an annual gathering for our teachers and this pandemic won’t stop us from doing it again this year. We consider the teachers’ month as the most wonderful time of the 51Talk year. More than 10,000 of our online English teachers participated and we were overwhelmed by the turnout,” said 51Talk Country Head Jennifer Que.

“Because all our teachers are home-based, it made sense to mount the grand event virtually. It’s exciting to hold a seamless online experience and connect with everyone. There are no boundaries anymore so we were able to reach more of our teachers to participate,” Ms. Que added.

Jack Huang, Founder and CEO of 51Talk, was also virtually present from 51Talk’s headquarters in Beijing.

51Talk Founder and CEO Jack Huang was also virtually present straight from 51Talk’s headquarters in Beijing, China. “I’m so happy to see everyone enjoying themselves as we celebrate and honor our teachers at 51Talk. I want everyone to know how grateful 51Talk is for your dedication and hard work, and for brightening our students’ day one lesson at a time,” said Mr. Huang.

“2020 is another special year for 51Talk. It marks 51Talk’s 9th year as a platform & 4th year of being listed in the NYSE. I salute all of the teachers who have been with us for many years now and I thank you for the trust and for believing in the 51Talk platform. As we move forward to the next year, expect greater and better things from 51Talk,” he added.

As COVID-19 forced the shutdown of physical schools in China earlier this year, Chinese parents used the extra time their children had to book additional English lessons on the online education platform. The surge of additional lessons was delivered by 51Talk’s more than 25,000 home-based teachers in the Philippines. This prompted 51Talk to attract 30,000 Filipino teachers this year to fulfil the increasing demand of online English education in China, an industry that enjoys explosive growth annually.

The 51TalkFlix event also showcased the awe-inspiring talents of the teachers in its annual competition, Talent to the Max. 51Talk’s outstanding teachers and clubs were also recognized. A special segment of Chinese students giving their teachers a heart-warming tribute on this special day was also part of the program.

Ebe Dancel


The event also featured performances from today’s hottest stars such as legendary OPM singer/songwriter Ebe Dancel who serenaded the teachers, and Asia’s Phoenix, Morissette, who wowed the crowd with her rendition of pop songs and original singles.

51Talk’s Philippine Brand Ambassador and Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach surprised the online audience with a video message and greeting. “Thanks for all that you do. I am proud of all of you and I hope you will continue to excel and help more students succeed in life,” said Pia.

Rounding out the list of personalities during the event was 51Talk’s Philippine Brand Ambassador Pia Wurtzbach, who delivered an inspirational message. Pia was chosen to represent 51Talk because of her long-time advocacy of empowering Filipinos through livelihood opportunities. Because the pandemic affected and displaced millions of Filipino workers, Pia used her voice and platform to talk about 51Talk and the earning opportunities of being an online English teacher.

“When I joined the 51Talk family, I was thrilled to help spread the word about the 30,000 livelihood opportunities on the platform. I love to empower my fellow Pinoys and I believe in our skills, dedication, and our capability to succeed and flourish when faced with opportunities,” said Pia. “To all of the 51Talk teachers, Happy Teacher’s Day!”

Before the event wrapped up, Ms. Que thanked the thousands of teachers who participated in the teachers’ day celebration while promising to deliver an even bigger and better event next year.

“51Talk is the best place to be right now. To all 51Talk teachers, thank you for enabling our students to speak up, stand out and succeed. Keep up the good work and Happy Teachers’ day to all of you!” Ms. Que exclaimed.

For those who are interested to become a home-based online English teacher at 51Talk and to be part of its amazing and passionate community, visit and sign-up now.

Red Ribbon honors and appreciates mom-frontliners with a sweet Mother’s Day surprise

It goes without saying that being a mother is one of the toughest and most noble jobs to take on. A mother’s role becomes more heroic in her children’s lives as she tackles the day-to-day challenges of meeting her family’s needs more so during this COVID-19 pandemic. As most family members have stayed home practically all-day since the start of the quarantine, mom has been tackling the enormous challenge of tending to her families 24/7, making sure she provides a safe, healthy, and comfortable environment for everyone in her household. Occasionally recognized, her selfless efforts deserve nothing less than our utmost appreciation.

That’s why this Mother’s Day, Red Ribbon pays tribute to all mothers for their unwavering love and dedication through the years and especially in this ongoing COVID-19 crisis by enjoining Filipinos through a nationwide “Thank You, Mom!” Campaign. The campaign is symbolized by a “red gift ribbon” icon which conveys both gratitude and tribute for moms as seen across the brand’s communication materials in their Mother’s Day campaign.

With the help of their delivery partners from GrabFood and Foodpanda, Red Ribbon provided a delightful surprise to Mom-Delivery Riders. They were requested to visit the store and pick up “orders” as part of their daily work routine, not knowing that a Red Ribbon Chocolate Dedication Cake with a special personalized message from their own family would be waiting for each of them.

“The kind of hard work and sacrifice our frontliners do is akin to a mother’s nurturing love. That is why mom-frontliners — whether they are in the medical field, on the roads, or in their homes — are worthy of every gesture, big or small, that truly honors and appreciates them. Their strength, courage, and competence inspire us to do really well on what we do best in Red Ribbon, and that is to make every milestone or celebration even more special for the Filipino family with cakes and pastries that every family member will enjoy, wherever they are,” said Kent Mariano, Marketing Head for Red Ribbon.

Moms’ Words of Wisdom that We all Need in our Daily Lives

Moms’ Words of Wisdom that We all Need in our Daily Lives

Moms’ Words of Wisdom that We all Need in our Daily Lives

Growing up, people have probably found themselves at least once in their lives to be sharing stories about the usual phrases they would hear from their moms. From witty punch lines to sermons they already know by heart, there will always be common wisdom from Filipino moms that all kids can seem relate to.

Years later, people look back with immense gratitude for all the incredible insights their moms have bestowed upon them. It instilled in them many great lessons that molded them to be the persons they are today, compelling them into realizing that moms indeed know best.

Now, as we spend this time in our lives staying inside our homes, it is in moments like this that her unparalleled wisdom becomes even more glaring. From teaching us proper hygiene to equipping us with the right domestic skills, her words continue to make her presence felt in our lives, reassuring us that she is always with us as we get through these times. 

And so, with twenty-twenty in hindsight, here are the top eight things we have learned from our moms that we now deem to be helpful and practical:

“Eat your vegetables”

Remember being a kid and hiding from your mom so you won’t have to eat your vegetables? Newsflash, it’s the year 2020, and stocking your body with nutrients is the most essential thing to do. You realize that learning to eat vegetables at a young age and expanding your palate to be healthier is an edge when one grows older.

“Wash your hands”

 It has always been mom’s unceasing reminder to wash our hands after we play and before we eat – and lo and behold, she was right. Now, we don’t just wash our hands for the sake of keeping clean, but also to protect ourselves and the people around us from getting sick.

 “Make your bed every morning”

Now that we have no other place to go but our house, we must keep things neat and clean at all times. People now learn to do different house chores, as they help their moms maintain a conducive and healthy environment for all members of the household.

“Pursue your Dreams”

Our moms have always been our #1 cheerleader. She has always believed in our skills and ability to reach for our dreams. Being in the house for the whole duration of the quarantine leaves people with some spare time to pursue passions outside their school or jobs. This again proves why mom was right when she said that channeling our energies into learning new skills and pursuing our dreams can keep us motivated during difficult times.

“Learn how to cook”

“Everyone seems to be baking these days!” Yes, and that’s all good! #QuarantineCooking has been a trend on social media lately. Although they say that nothing beats mom’s cooking, we take inspiration from the hearty meals she has prepared for us growing up and recreate it with our own personal touch. 

 “Save money for the rainy days”

This is something that moms would usually say to motivate kids into saving their own money. And with the world undergoing such an unpredicted time, no truer words have been spoken. Being smart with managing hard-earned cash and occasionally putting off instant gratifications may help a person for when the time comes that resources are truly needed.

“You’ll understand me when you’re older”

You have probably heard her say this recently already, and rightfully so! As people age, they eventually get into that vantage point where they realize that mom was always the beacon of wisdom. The lessons she has imparted to her children became their solid rock, molding them to be the persons they are now.

“My love for you is unconditional”

There’s no emotion in the world that is more powerful and moving than a mother’s love. Even though we didn’t realize the importance of her words when we were younger, the unconditional love of our mothers shines through. That is why this Mother’s Day, remember all the things that your mom did to show her unconditional love for you and say, #AkoNamanMa.

It is best to be ready at all times,” says Geraldine Desiderio-Garcia, Senior Vice President & General Manager of Country Bankers Insurance Corporation.

Staying true to its promise to be relevant yet affordable, Country Bankers’ scope of benefits and coverage carries benefits that can compete with other insurers.

Raising Awareness: For instance, March being Fire Prevention Month, it is the perfect time to discuss and raise awareness about the causes, hazards, and dangers of fire, and the most auspicious occasion to make decisions about insuring your properties. CBIC’s fire insurance coverage may be extended, upon payment of additional premium to allied perils such as earthquake, typhoon, and flood. Optional supplementary covers for fire insurance include burglary, cleaning of debris, fire-fighting expenses, rental expense or income and household employee belongings.
