"Burger King is keen on implementing efforts to reinvent our produtcs. One of the many ways is to add new variations to satisfy the cravings of our consumers. And as Burger King continues witht hese efforts, we hope to bring milkshake in the Philippines this year, to complete that indulgent American burger experience." ~Jo Anne Tan, Marketing Head of Burger King Philippines

The Cheetos 4-Cheese Crunch and The thick-blend shakes are perfect together even if they say opposites attract.

Burger King Philippines is definitely rooting for this ideal pairing as it currently raveled that it is blending a special concoction of thick milkshakes - from creamy vanilla, rich chocolate, to strawberry dreams. And ow my I love it its like an ice cream drink and the thickness was just perfect.

Every slurp the thick-blend shakes is a burst of creamy, yummy goodness that perfectly complements the unique flame-grilled taste of their burgers and the soft and crispy quality of their thick cut fries.

The Cheetos 4-Cheese Crunch is made with Cheetos Cheddar Jalapeno and 100% beef patty bringing a cheesier, beefier, tastier and hotter burger experience. Sharing the spotlight are its other ingredients, which include Mozzarella, Swiss Cheese, and Cheddar Cheese sauce.

But a burger as delicious as this deserves just the right kind of partner to complement it. Burger King's very own twist on the classic burger match: The Thick-Blend Shakes.

Burger King will only make the The Cheetos 4-Cheese Crunch and The thick-blend shakes available to the public, only if you want them to, because the all is yours. Burger King values their customers taste on everything they serve. So don't let these whipped creations remain in their kitchen. With me of course it is a must that they make it available for orders immediately because its so yummy and delicious. Plus the cup of thick and creamy goodness of shake will be surprisingly affordable so they're definitely to watch out for.

Pia Wurtzbach is Century Tuna's #QueenOfTheCentury

“I have a busy schedule and always on the go so when I do have the time to grocery shop or prepare a meal, I make it a priority. I like to enjoy food that keeps my energy levels stable, like Century Tuna. I’ve always been a Century Tuna girl! And this body you see is made possible by Century.” ~Pia Wurtzbach

Together with, of course, her ravishing looks---her poise, style, and grace—her talents and intelligence, it is Pia’s commitment to self-discipline and physical fitness — just look at her lean and Ultimate Superbody! — that brought her into the Century Tuna fold. The Queen of the Universe is now also the Queen of the Century, Century Tuna that is, the country’s number one tuna!  Pia Wurtzbach – ever gorgeous TV host, model, and Miss Universe 2015 no less – joins Century Tuna’s outstanding roster of endorsers, as she appears in an all-new TVC that’s oozing with sexiness and elegance!

No doubt, Pia Wurtzbach has become an inspiration to many and a true role model, the perfect embodiment of Century Tuna’s winning ways and her role as the new Queen of the Century! Hail to the Queen!
“We’re thrilled to have Pia Wurtzbach in the Century Tuna family. Pia is indeed ‘The Queen of the Century,’ the epitome of a mutli-faceted woman who excels in a variety of fields while staying fit and sexy.” ~Greg Banzon, Century Pacific Foods, Inc. General Manager
Pia first got bitten by the acting bug at the tender age of four, which later led her to join the Star Circle Batch 11, appearing in a string of television shows and movies. But her real break came when, in her third attempt, she entered the Binibining Pilipinas Pageant in 2015, the stepping stone to her most glorious achievement thus far: bagging the highly coveted Miss Universe 2015 crown – following in the heels of Gloria Diaz in 1969 and Margie Moran in 1973 – in what was a most contentious competition. 

In fact, with a help of a personal trainer, Pia heads to the gym regularly, where she engages in a combination of planking (the best exercise for a flat, toned stomach), tricep pull-downs (for well-defined arms as well as shapely biceps and triceps), as well as squats and lunges (for firm and strong looking legs).

No doubt, Pia Wurtzbach has become an inspiration to many and a true role model, the perfect embodiment of Century Tuna’s winning ways and her role as the new Queen of the Century! Hail to the Queen!

Because of Century Tuna’s versatility, where it can be used in a myriad of yummy and nutritious dishes, Pia need not deprive herself while becoming the ultimate superbod. After all, Century Tuna is made of 100% real tuna, rich in Omega 3 DHA, which helps you achieve a healthy and 100% winner superbody, just like hers!

Naturally, a healthy, balanced, yet satisfying diet comes hand in hand with her exercise routine. And for this, there’s nothing else but Century Tuna — the 100% winner in tuna — of which Pia has been a long time fan.

Yassi Pressman's #NagmadaliNagkamali Success Story with Silka

"Marami akong naging pagsubok sa showbiz. Ilang beses narin akong hindi natanggap sa mga audition, pero tuloy lang ang laban. Sabi ko nga sa sarili ko, don't try to rush things that need time to grow. With hard work, dadating ang para sa iyo sa tamang panahon kasi kapag minamadali, nagkakamali."

Everyone had their #NagmadaliNagkamali, i had mine as well and it was such a funny thing to remember. But despite it all it was a good thing to ponder to wherever I am right now in my life and like what everyone said isipin mo nalang walang nakatingin :)

It was a cool and a bit rainy day but everyone had fun with some artsy craftsy toot bag that was given to us with some cute stuff in it!

Buhay OFW TV with Host Marissa Del Mar Celebrates 7 Years: Founds ATOM to fight Modern Day Slavery

ATOM is as a step towards remedying the statistics of over 10 million Filipino men, women, and children subjected to sex trafficking and forced labor worldwide. Our OFW, in dire need to provide a better future for themselves and their families, constitute a large percentage of those already exploited or at risk of being exploited. This campaign recognizes the contribution of the OFW not only in the Philippine Economic Development but also in the promotion of safety among their fellow migrants.

Last July 18, 2017 a media launch was held at Golden Bay Restaurant, Pasay City to launch the oath taking event that will happen on October. As multi-awarded public service show, Buhay OFW which airs every Saturday at 9:30 pm on Aksyon TV and Aksyon International, celebrates its 7th year anniversary, they take a significant leap forward by launching the project Anti Trafficking OFW Movement (ATOM) through the initiative of host and founder, Marissa del Mar. 

Some common destinations for victims are:
  • Hong Kong
  • Kuwait
  • Singapore
  • Qatar
  • China
  • Japan
  • United Arab Emirates
  • Malaysia

Places popular to the general public as tourist destinations. Ninoy Aquino International Airport and Mactan International Airport become exit points for workers expecting real jobs abroad only to be met instead with real threats. They are also smuggled and trafficked in ports in Ilocos Sur, Zamboanga del Sur, Davao del Sur, Misamis Oriental, Bicol, and Dagupan City with 30% transported by sea. 

Although a term less estranged to many due to depictions in entertainment outlets such as Hollywood movies, human-trafficking is an ongoing hazard closer to home than most people expect and realize. UNDOC (United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime) recognizes trafficking in as simple a situation as the recruitment of a person for a false job within or across national borders with the intention to trap them into forced labor. More often, however, the deception and abuse does not stop there. It leads to prostitution, sexual exploitation, slavery, and removal of organs.

Through the combined efforts of:
Buhay OFW Foundation
San Miguel Corporation
Volunteers Against Crime and Corruption (VACC)
National Real Estate Association (NREA)
Sterling Group of Companies
Management Association of the Philippines (MAP)
Philippine Chamber of Commerce and Industry PCCI)
Philippine Chinese Charitable Association (PCCA)
Zonta Club of Makati Central Business District
Philippine Chinese Chamber of Commerce and Industry Inc. (PCCCII)
together also with our media partners Aksyon TV
Light Network Channel
Malaya Business Insight

These facts become the foundation on which change begins. The meaningful oath taking will take place on October 23, Monday at the Diamond Hotel, Manila. 

Cooperation with these organizations and authorities could uncover and convict more labor traffickers and officials and establishments complicit in these crimes. The resulting assistance of thousands of victims opens opportunities for further action towards the safety of all.

ATOM challenges Filipinos here and abroad to raise awareness, strengthen camaraderie, and therefore reduce – in hopes of someday eliminating – this threat to our OFW altogether. 


For more information and partnership, please contact Veronica Ramos at 0927-8484533 or Mari De Los Santos at 834-9673 of Buhay OFW TV

These victims – a large number of whom originate from areas within Metro Manila and in the provinces of:
  • Laguna
  • Rizal
  • Pampanga
  • Cavite
  • Batangas
  • Cebu
  • Zamboanga
  • Davao

The same people who contribute to the Philippines 180 billion pesos in total remittance which lead to the amassing of foreign reserves and the rise of the national savings rate. They sacrifice their comfort, health, marriages, children, and often their pride, to improve their recipient households and, in the process, the national economy. These are the people stripped of their human rights by predators operating under pretense of recruitment agencies and other aliases.
