MYA, Hallyu Secret launch PH office; recognizes K-Beauty Olympics winners

San Juan City, Philippines – Mi-Yong Alliance (MYA), the country’s pioneer Korean Beauty Academy recently held the grand opening of its new office in Greenhills, San Juan City. Since 2016, MYA consistently introduces Korean skin care courses to Filipino clients, embarking a new milestone in beauty and cosmetics industry.

With their skin care innovations, start-up entrepreneurs and established beauty clinic owners enroll to MYA, who are planning to add the unique techniques and standards to their list of services. Surprisingly, in just short span of time, MYA already built a reputation within the industry, acquiring students from Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao. Certainly, Korean skin care has found its new home in Greenhills.

Mi-Yong Alliance, Korea Chairman, Mr. Raphael Jang welcomed the guests and media with his inspiring speech, sharing the journey of MYA along with its Korean skin care clinic, Hallyu Secret Aesthetics. According to him, the past two years have been tough and challenging however, they managed to stay firm with their passion and dedication.

This all started with our hope to share quality skills and the latest trends to Filipinos. Our journey for the last 2 years was not easy. Kris and I would always fight about many things, there were a lot of times that we wanted to stop working and give-up. But as we make classes, batch after batch, there is a growing obligation and responsibility to our clients whom we consider our children in the industry. We could not stop aiming the best for them that why we keep giving opportunities to people grow with us as well. Some examples are our instructor course programs and K-Beauty Olympics. We know that this kind of programs will totally change their future,” Chairman Jang pronounced.

Philippine CEO Kris Candyd Sibal introduces Hallyu Secret Aesthetics treatments, which finely cater wide range of solutions for every customer. Some of their advanced skin care services like BB Glow and XY Blush, Gold Therapy and Secret Semi-permanent mascara were discussed during the program.

Raphael Jang

MYA has successfully made a reputation as the Korean beauty academy who consistently bring “first in the Philippines” beauty treatments. This is made true by the Korean style permanent make-up, BB Glow and Semi-Permanent Mascara which are widely available to many salons, clinics and skin care center today. Hallyu Secret’s system was adopted from a famous beauty center in Gangnam, Seoul named Pretty Face Clinic where in Chairman Jang is also one of the directors of the said clinic,” PCEO Sibal shared.

Well-known for permanent make-up (PMU) techniques, MYA’s head instructor Ms. LK Park enlightened guests and media about their various services.

LK PARK

I am LK Park, I am here now in Philippines with a mission to spread quality skills among the Filipino PMU specialists. There are a lot of wrong cases in Philippines, a lot of clients go to us for correction of their brows. This is what our academy is famous for after all. PMU has evolved through time, today it doesn’t only focus on the brows, eyeline and lips, it became a procedure now for those who have scars, bald scalp, and those with dark areolas. It became a solution to cover-up the insecurities of people. Here at Hallyu Secret all these kinds of PMU services are available. From making your brows on fleek up to coveing the baldness of your head,” she stated.

MYA Instructors

At the latter part of the event, MYA awarded plaques to their hardworking certified instructors, who greatly contributed to the growing influence of the institution.

  • Karen Alberto of Korean Beauty Institute
  • Erin Grace Aguidan of Elite Beauty Academy
  • Joan Uy-Dacio of HD Brows
  • Rowena Dela Cruz of R Brows
  • Myla Angela Nidea of M Seoul Aesthetics

Fuel the Hungry with Yellow Cab’s 5 Boroughs Pizza

Hey upper east siders, kidding. Since it’s Gossip girl anniversary I’ve been been watching it since the end of August and how ironic that Yellow Cab launches New York’s roster of legendary pizza.

Queens & Staten Island will all be available starting on SEPTEMBER 5, 2018 – JANUARY 31, 2019

Prices: 
Regular – P499 | Large P759 | New Yorker size P999 (available dine-in, take out and delivery). 

5 Boroughs Pizza: 


•QUEENS: oriental chicken, mushrooms, onions & pineapple. 

The Queens Oriental Chicken Pizza brings to the palate a unique flavor profile with its’ combination of chicken, mushrooms, onions and pineapple, topped with spring onions and cilantro, with a sweet and tangy Oriental sauce base.


•MANHATTAN STEAK AND EGG PIZZA: steak strips, eggs douched in steak sauce, onions and green peppers. This  is my personal favorite among all it’s like a savoury-sweet eggs-ben on a pizza (That’s my take). 

For those craving for something more sophisticated, there’s the Manhattan Steak & Eggs Pizza. Reminiscent of the borough considered as the “center of the universe,” this variant brings together a classy mix of steak strips and eggs doused in steak sauce and topped with onions and green bell peppers. 


•BROOKLYN: spicy jalapeño peppers, shrimps, crabsticks, onions, green bell pepper, tomatoes and capers.

The hip culture of Brooklyn is captured in a hefty serving of Brooklyn Spicy Seafood Pizza. It is loaded with spicy Jalapeño peppers, shrimps, crabsticks, onions, green bell peppers, tomatoes and capers.


• Upper Photo – BRONX: creamy mix of mushroom, chicken, olives and green peppers.

Bronx Creamy Mushroom Pizza, Yellow Cab’s first white sauce based pizza brings to fore the intense flavor of the tough and edgy community of the Bronx. This tasty variant is a creamy mix of mushroom, chicken, olives and green bell peppers.

• Lower Photo – STATEN ISLAND BASIL & RICOTTA: crushed tomatoes, 3 cheeses and basil.

Finally, there’s Staten Island Basil & Ricotta Pizza which features crushed tomatoes topped with three cheeses and basil. This hefty mix is Yellow Cab’s Margherita Pizza with a twist, and is reflective of the more laid-back and chill atmosphere of the suburban community that has been the trademark of Staten Island.

#ALOHAgain! to the #AmazingAlohaYumBurger

It’s back! one of my favorite jollibee staples, THE JOLLIBEE ALOHA YUMBURGER. It’s successful launch last time has definitely won the people’s heart. Affordable and you could chose from a single and double patty option. 

After much demand and hype over one of the leading quick service restaurant’s most unique menu offerings, Jollibee brings back the irresistibly delicious, truly Amazing Aloha Yumburger for all Filipinos to enjoy.

Diners can now say ‘Aloha’ to the sweet, savory, pineapple-beefy and langhap-sarap flavor explosion from their favorite Amazing Aloha Yumburger. Its fresh lettuce, crispy bacon, signature sweet and juicy pineapple ring, cheese, trademark 100% beef patty, and specially blended honey mustard dressing all come together so seamlessly that treating yourself to one will leave you craving for that juicy, well-balanced indulgence all over again.

It’s no surprise that the Amazing Aloha Yumburger remains to be one of Jollibee’s most successful limited time offers, since the first time it debuted in 1996, re-launched in 2013—the year the legendary Anthony Bourdain hailed it as a “very tasty burger”, and made seasonal menu appearances again in 2014 and 2017. With the well-loved sweet-savory burger back in the market this 2018, fans can instantly solve their Amazing Aloha Yumburger cravings while customers who have yet to try it can treat themselves to a one-of-a-kind multi-layer burger experience.

“The Amazing Aloha Yumburger represents that sweet-savory combination that appeals to the Filipino palate,” Jollibee AVP and Group Category Head for Flagships Cathleen Capati said. “This combination is not commonly found in other burgers or snack offerings which is why those who have tried the Amazing Aloha Yumburger in the past are left with fond memories and a desire for that burst of flavors. Every bite brings a flavorful taste from its diverse ingredients. We are happy to offer this in our menu once again, and we highly encourage everyone—including those who have not tried it yet—to check it out and experience the ‘Aloha’ moment themselves, as soon as they can as it is available for a limited time only.”

The ‘Pineapple-Beefy, Langhap-Sarap’ Amazing Aloha Yumburger is back in all Jollibee stores nationwide for only PHP 85.00 (single patty – solo) and PHP 115.00 (double patty – solo) starting September 3, 2018.

Custom Brows by BrowHaus

What comes oddly satisfying is a clean set and on fleek eyebrows. The saying goes “kilay is life”.

I always had bushy and thick eyebrows growing up and threading has become a forever regular routine. I always get mine regularly clean every 2 weeks. If it goes bushy they have to shape it. That’s how important it is for me to get my eyebrows groom all the time.

Setting foot at BrowHaus, is also an experience. I never experienced threading ever that painful and you’re sitting comfortably – very laidback. The browarchitects especially have really light hands “magaan ang kamay”.  At browhaus, they call it “brow construction” with basic brow shaping. For the classic P698 and modern tweezing P698. You get what you pay for. Yes it is pricey compared to others because of the state of the art equipment they use and they are all about function and style. 

 Besides threading they offer LASH AND BROW CARE, COSMETICS (You should try their HD lengthening mascara P998, precision eyeliner in black P798 & brown P750, brow definer P900 and oil base erase makeup remover p900)  and other services like EYE DEINE & LIP DEFINE.

But then there is more you could do to your brows, if you feel that your brows deserve more why not try “BROW RESURRECTION”. It is a natural semi-permanent eyebrow enhancement solution. Bringing your lifeless brows to life!

Brow Resurrection creates realistic hair strands from root to tip to give you perfect brows! Unique only to Browhaus, this treatment uses an advance embroidery technique to create natural-looking strokes, resulting in a finer finish compared to other semi-permanent brow treatments that simply weave in parallel hair strands.

It comes in CLASSIC, FULL AND OMBRE.

CLASSIC (P42, 800) realistic and long lasting strands giving it a bold and refined look. It has a downtime of approximately 7 days. Touch up until 12 months (P7500)

FULL (P72,000) Life like feathery strokes for a full look. It has a downtime of approximately 7 days. Touch ups until 18 months (P9800).

OMBRE (P80, 000) is a combination of the 2 with more of a gradient base and I’ve seen it myself it’s like you have highlights. Same downtime of approximately 7 days. Touch ups until 18 months (P9800).

These 3 all have after care treatment called AFTER CARE CAMERA KIT.

Here are commonly asked questions:

How painless is BR?

We go that extra mile to ensure a comfortable experience from start to finish. To minimise discomfort, the therapist will apply a superior numbing cream to the treatment area. Nine out of 10 customers feedback that they don’t experience any discomfort and for those who do, the discomfort is #NoBigDeal and likened to eyebrow tweezing.

How long is the treatment duration?

The entire procedure takes 90 minutes for Brow Resurrection Classic, Soft and Full and 120 minutes for Brow Resurrection Ombre to complete, consisting of consultation and the treatment itself.

Are there any after effects?

After treatment effects varies with every individual. Post-treatment, there might be slight swelling and tenderness on the treated area. Don’t immediately freak out if you think the colour of your brows are too dark after the treatment – the colour is meant to fade over the next 6 to 10 days, leaving you with the desired shade that you initially agreed on with your therapist.

LG GIFTS THE NATIONAL MUSEUM OF THE PHILIPPINES WITH THE WORLD’S #1 OLED TV

On its 30th anniversary, LG Philippines salutes the National Museum of the Philippines and its new National Museum of Natural History, and celebrates one of the world’s richest marine ecosystems.

To further its CSR thrust of promoting education, LG Philippines, which is celebrating its 30th anniversary, has made a large donation in-kind to the National Museum of the Philippines, both in acknowledgement of its valuable work and to celebrate its newly opened National Museum of Natural History (NMNH) in Rizal Park. LG is hoping to promote a more holistic and interactive experience for visitors by donating one 65-inch OLED TV (E8), one 55-inch OLED TV (C8) and one 55-inch UHD TV to the premier public museum institution of the country. 

As part of the donation, LG also commissioned underwater conservationist director/photographer Noel Guevara to create a short video that showcases the richness and beauty of underwater life in the Philippines, said to be the epicenter of marine biodiversity on earth. The video, shot off Balicasag Island in Panglao, Bohol features colorful reefs, tropical fish of all sizes and turtle residence. 

“As an underwater photographer and in this case, videographer, I am one of the many visual ambassadors of the sea, whose job is to bring the ocean closer to people’s hearts,” says Guevara. “Balicasag is a beautiful, bountiful dive spot. Showcasing its vibrant marine life in glorious, colorful 4K allows a viewer to take in these sights in more detail and with better appreciation, where the only thing better left to do is to 

“As an underwater photographer and in this case, videographer, I am one of the many visual ambassadors of the sea, whose job is to bring the ocean closer to people’s hearts,” says Guevara. “Balicasag is a beautiful, bountiful dive spot. Showcasing its vibrant marine life in glorious, colorful 4K allows a viewer to take in these sights in more detail and with better appreciation, where the only thing better left to do is to actually dive there.”

Guevara’s video was premiered to media and special friends at the NMNH on the 77-inch LG OLED W8 TV, LG’s newest and most stunning display to date, which showed off the underwater sights of the Bohol Sea to the best advantage. Marrying best-in-class picture quality with a mind-blowing “wallpaper” design (the display measures a paper-thin 0.23 inches), the W8 represents the height of TV technology, flaunting true-to-life picture quality and cinema-quality Dolby Atmos sound. This newly launched model is also equipped with LG’s new Alpha α9 intelligent processor, which has the ability to create the clearest and most detailed pictures with realistic color and ultra-fast response times.

Jeremy Barns, director of the National Museum of the Philippines, expressed his profound gratitude for the TVs and commissioned video, “We are very thankful to LG for their generous donation to the National Museum and for their enthusiastic support of our new National Museum of Natural History, which has broken new ground in facilitating far wider public appreciation of the natural wonders of the Philippine archipelago. These cutting-edge, beautifully designed TVs, combined with the work of this institution, will immerse our viewers and provide them with special experiences of the heritage and patrimony of the Filipino people. This video will convey more effectively than ever before the amazing marine experience that Bohol, one of so many extraordinary places in the Philippines, has to offer—short of diving Balicasag Island’s hidden depths themselves.” Barns also added that the video is a very timely complement to the opening later this year of the new National Museum in Bohol, housed at Tagbilaran’s restored and converted former provincial capitol building which was damaged in the 2013 earthquake. The museum director believes that the video should also be prominently featured in the Bohol museum in addition to the NMNH. He went on to say that the video will also feature in all the appropriate public platforms of the National Museum and be recommended to relevant key partner government agencies, including the Department of Education, the Department of Environment and Natural Resources, the Department of Tourism, and the National Commission for Culture and the Arts.

“LG’s goal is to harness the power of beautiful images and modern, innovative technology to fuel and inspire the next generation,” says LG Philippines managing director Mr. Inkwun Heo. “The TVs we are donating to the National Museum can be used both as educational vessels and design inspiration. The LG OLED TVs can integrate perfectly into the interiors of the National Museum in Manila and the other educational centers in their growing network of museums within the country, while the video will give museum visitors moving glimpses of the Philippines’ natural inheritance. We at LG Philippines are very proud to be associated with this great public institution and center of education, science and culture, and all of the work that they carry out for the benefit of the Filipino people and their innumerable friends throughout the world.”

Palmolive Expertique hair care line brings you salon-beautiful hair everyday. With this line of hair products you can be your own hair expert at your very own home. The struggle is real in maintaining that salon-beautiful hair days after but don’t worry Palmolive Expertique got you covered.

This line comes with shampoo, conditioner, hair mask, anti frizz serum and beautifying oil. What makes this line special that it is infused with Kera-Ceramide Serum.  Hair technology that makes hair nourished and stronger inside and out. Keratin gives the hair strength leaving it smooth and manageable. The Ceramide on the other hand prevents damage and restores shine. You don’t have to spend too much on expensive hair care products and it would be available in all leading supermarkets nationwide near you. 

 

 

 

 

Also that introducing their latest ambassador, the first Filipina to win Asia’s next top model, Maureen Wroblewitz.

“Just like the majority of women out there, I too desire to have salon-beautiful hair everyday, and not just when I’m coming from a shoot or a runway show. With Palmolive EXPERTIQUETM, I am my own hair expert. I am able to take charge of not only my beauty, but my everyday too. With Palmolive EXPERTIQUETM, I can OWN IT.” – Maureen Wroblewitz

The shampoo and conditioner comes in 3 variants: REVITALISTE, SMOOTHIQUE and RESILIENTE. Available in bottles 170 ml (P130.00) and in sachets 12 ml (P6.00).

 

 

REVITALISTE is for NORMAL to DRY HAIR, contains Kera-Ceramide with biotin and hyaluronic. It penetrataes and deeply nourishes hair fibers, enhancing hair’s vitality and natural movement.

 

 

 

 

SMOOTHIQUE (This is Maureen’s personal favorite) this is for FRIZZY HAIR, contains kera-ceramide serum with rare oil complex. It aligns, tames and adds control to frzzy and flyaway hair.

RESILIENTE for DAMAGED HAIR, contains Kera- Ceramide with arginine. It reconstructs and fortifies damaged, over – treated hair.

Impressions: Affordable ofcourse!, It still has that signature Palmolive scent with a kick but fresher scent which leaves your hair really smelling good. Your hair feels light right after and a cool feeling on the scalp. I use a wet brush in combing my hair and I noticed less hair falling off and it’s super smooth with NO tangles at all.

For the hair treatments, you got the INTENSIVE HAIR MASK 180 ml (P195.00), BEAUTIFYING OIL 30 ml (P195.00) AND ANTI-FRIZZ SERUM 70 ml (P250.00).

Impressions: The Intensive hair mask is used after conditioner, I personally use hair mask atleast once or twice in a week, I leave it on for a few minutes especially when I go to the steam room and sauna. For Palmolive Expertique Intensive Hair mask, according to the label you can leave on for 2- 5 minutes then wash it off. For me after washing, this hair mask definitely gives you that cool feeling on the scalp and your hair is so smooth right after. Your hair feels light if that’s what you’re going for.

The anti -frizz serum, comes in a spray bottle and I since I don’t have frizzy hair, I just hit the ends of my hair then distribute evenly since it prevents fly away hair. This is applied on towel-dried hair. 

For the beautifying oil, 1-2 pumps is enough rub it first, apply to your roots and massage till the end of the hair. Don’t apply too much. and its better to apply it if you took a bath then your hair let it dry(t towel dried hair) then apply the oil. I wouldn’t suggest if you haven’t taken a shower, it makes the hair really oily,

This Rainy Season, Start Fresh with Seattle’s Best Coffee

A great take on coffee + art together can turn out to be great and fun! Who doesn’t love coffee and art.

Anina Rubio creates stellar art pieces, you can see her work around BGC. Her style is modern and fresh just like SBC. She demonstrated her latest art project which is the  highlight of SBC Highstreet’s glass window.  Giving it a fresh take  and her personal touch because she loves her coffee in the morning. 

“I’m very much inspired by nature. You can see it in 98 percent of my artworks. This mural is very personal because I start my day with a shot of espresso or an Iced Americano, and I also have a backyard full of plants, which is a similar setting to what you have here at SBC BGC,” – Anina Rubio

Along with that the series of workshops lined up – The SBC Perkspective, a series of quarterly pocket events that will offer talks, workshops, and informal meet-ups aimed at giving a fresh perspective on how we create and view art, music, photography and other creative processes.

Inspired by Anina’s  work, the handy SBC tumblers were so fun to decorate and personalize according to your personality. I had a small contribution on the mural just the details on the leaves, I think mine looked like chicken feet hehehe

SBC is known for serving FRESH anytime! I personally know this because while I was reviewing for my board exam way back at  SBC – Tomas Morato, there were open till 4am (on selected days) so when I fell to pull an all nighter SBC was my go to- fresh meals, drinks and coffee. Till now my SBC meals and coffee never fails to be always fresh.
