April 16, 2015


When I first entered the call center industry a decade ago, DELL was one of my first accounts for Teleperformance. We took orders from customers who wanted to purchase a desktop package with
printers together with it’s other partner brands. So in my opinion, Dell has always been a trend setter and I’m in love with their monitors and sleek laptops even up to this very day.

Just recently, many thanks to the kind invite of a PR friend Ms. Sheila, I got reunited again for Dell this time with its Solutions Tour 2015 held at SMX in SM Aura attended all over by the IT community.

Dell flew in some of its top executives in the Asia Pacific Region to discuss what was in store for this year’s solutions tour. Led by Dell Philippines, Country Manager Christopher Papa, it was a rare moment meeting:

Business, Dell South Asia; ; Tian Beng Ng, Managing Director, South Asia &
Korea and Vice President, Commercial Channels, Asia Pacific
Japan, Dell; Harjeet Singh Rekhi, General manager, Client Solutions

It was also awesome meeting Jonathan Avila, Dell Monitor Ambassador who shared his experience using Dell’s monitors and other programs related to his photography business.

Hapee Fresh Fighters: We Are the Champions!


AspirantsCupHapeeLogoThe Hapee Fresh Fighters team along with their families  and its owner Lamoiyan Corporation recently gave a thanksgiving/victory party with the media held at Banzai Japanese Buffet Restaurant, SM MOA By the Bay. It was a fun gathering with overflowing food, drinks and yummy desserts. Banzai resto also gave all its patrons an entertaining and authentic Japanese drum show with performers in their best performance level!

This was to celebrate their winning the 2014-2015 PBA D-League Aspirants’ Cup. All the training and hardwork including sacrifices has paid off after bagging the title and bringing home the trophy. What sweet victory!
hapee3“We are so happy with our successful comeback—not only did we have a great season but also a championship title. But more than the win, we’re here for another season to continue supporting the sport because we believe in the youth’s potential to be the best in this field,” said Dr. Cecilio Pedro, Lamoiyan Corporation’s President and Chief Executive Officer.

It was an honor and privilege seeing and meeting Dr. Pedro upclose and depicted in his short speech that he was happy and satisfied with the team’ s splendid performance of bringing home the bacon as an amateur team in the league.
hapeeLamoiyan Corporation through its flagship brand Hapee Toothpaste has joined the league for another season to tap the potential talents of Filipino youth when it comes to sports especially in basketball.

Through the years, Lamoiyan has always aimed to come up with quality and affordable dental care needs that has branched out to other household kithen items. I personally use the Gumtect brand for my sensitive teeth and gums and Dazz dishwashing cleanser.

The team is composed of San Beda standouts Mar Villahermosa, Mark Romero, Arvie Bringas, and Leo Gabo, former NU star Bobby Ray Parks, former La Salle player Jovet Mendoza, and Ateneo’s Nico Elorde with Kirk Long.

The rest of the team are Gilas Cadet Garvo Lanete, NU’s Troy Rosario, Perpetual Help’s Scottie Thompson, UP’s Mark Lopez, PBA’s Mavin Hayes, and Mike Gamboa and Chris Newsome.

It was also the birthday of Team Manager Bernard Yang that night and he was gifted with a yummy birthday cake and resounding Happy Birthday tune and cheers from his players and guests with us from the media. Many more to come sir!

Joel Pedro, Lamoiyan Corporation’s Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer also thanked all the sponsors for the support in the last conference. Present that time were the reps of Freego clothing line.

Hapee continues to push its advocacy in helping the youth develop values such as maintaining a healthy lifestyle, teamwork, sportsmanship, friendship and camaraderie through sports.
hapee5Here’s wishing Hapee Fresh Fighters more blessings and more wins these coming conferences. Right now they’re setting and working on their goal on taking home this year’s Foundation Cup and bag its second straight championship title in the amateur league.

Congratulations Lamoiyan Corporation and God bless all your worthy endeavors to us consumers and the exciting world of sports!

My very first personal encounter with the Samwon brand happend in 1994 when my former boyfriend and I were scouting for a new handy AM/FM radio. We are both music lovers and we wanted a portable radio we could bring in our out of town trips or fun picnics.

Right smack of our budget that time, we came across a black and silver Samwon radio, immediately bought it and named him “Sammy”. We loved to name our stuff and personal gadgets because it’s really cute doing so.  “Sammy” was one of our fave music buddy aside from our “walkmans” and extensively travelled near and far. Thank you Samwon!

Just recently, Samwon Electronics re-launched some of its products and introduced new and updated ones during a blogger’s gathering at Jill’s resto bar The Fort. Many thanks for the invite Ms. Cherry Bustamante of The Big Difference Communications.
