Of Blood Letting and Anti Cyberbullying with KathNiel

More than fighting evil vampires at La Luna Sangre as Tristan and Malia, Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla fight cyberbullies in real life. Kicking off their anti-cyberbullying campaign as Cybersmile Ambassadors, KathNiel together with Philippine Red Cross (PRC), the Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT) and Kathniel’s fan base KDKN Solidarity Community, Inc. along with volunteer-individual and other fan group supporters conducted a simultaneous event dubbed as“Give Blood. Fight Cyberbullying” last Nov. 5 at the PRC Headquarters and across 18 (initially targeted 22) other PRC blood centers nationwide.

The event was held to gather as many blood donors, promote La Luna Sangre in Halloween season and fashion as blood donors were encouraged to wear costumes of their favorite La Luna Sangre characters, and formally launch the anti-cyberbullying campaign of KathNiel.

According to PRC Director for National Blood Services Dr. CristieMoninaNalupta, the simultaneous event garnered 50,000 cc of blood which could possibly help and save lives of 360 patients. The event also made noise at social media as #ImACybersmiler and #LLSBloodletting were its digital battle cry in its awareness campaign.  

It included a Q & A portion with KathNiel and DICT Assistant Secretary Allan Cabanlong sharing from their personal experiences and important tips on how to handle bullies online to the status of the bill named as“An Act Defining and Penalizing the Crime of Cyberbullying”, otherwise known as theAnti-Cyberbullying Act of 2015.

Asked as to what her worst experience was with cyberbullying Kathryn said, “Dumatingakosa point nanagkulongakosakwarto at hindiakokumakausap ng tao at sobrangna-depress akoSana mas maging aware ang mgataonaseryoso ang bagaynaito.” Knowing that anyone in social media could have the same terrible experience as hers, is her principal motivation to engage in this advocacy. “Na-experience naming kung paanoitokasakit at ayawna naming lumala pa ito at ma-experience pa ng maramingtao, lalona ng mgakabataan.”  

A thrust on accountability and consequences is a must. According to Daniel, their advocacy along with DICT is to come up with a “sapatnapangil” against the cyberbullies. “Hindi silapwedengnanggaganonlang ng taonahindinilakilala. Hindi pwedengnang-aapilangsila ng tao out of nowhere,” he said.

On their vision of supporting the cyberbullying campaign, Kathryn said of the internet “For communication and good vibes. Wag gamitin ang internet para maniralang ng ibangtao.” Daniel adds, “Negative attracts negative. Positive attracts success…Never ka magiging successful sabuhay kung sobrakangnegatibongtao at walakangginawa kung hindimanira.” He calls on his fellow artists, musicians and everyone in showbiz to join him and Kathryn in fighting cyberbullying as this is a serious problem that should be given due attention.

Best advice from Kathryn? Family and friends can help a lot in values formation and can help you deal with the negative feelings you get from cyberbullies. But as for dealing with cyberbullies themselves, she said “intindihin din at ikaw ang maging mas malakingtaosakanila.”

As for Daniel, we need to also understand what kind of person the cyberbully we’re dealing with. He said, “di namanpwedenalahat ng basherssa cyberspace ay sagutinmo, dahilyungibahindinaman legit or fake accounts lang at meron ding ibadapatintindihin at bakameronsiyangproblema”. But at the end of the day he says, “Mas magingmabutinalangtayongtao.”
The Cybersmile Foundation is a multi-awarded international non-profit organization committed to the fight against cyberbullying.    

Some of the other 19 blood centers include: Batangas, Calamba, Tarlac, Cavite, Pampanga, Olongapo, Baguio, Cebu, Iloilo, Bacolod,  Aklan, Dumaguete, Davao, Cagayan De Oro, Butuan, General Santos, Misamis Occidental, and Zamboanga City.

 

 

 

The Praxis Experience Thanks to BPI-Philam

How good are you at financing? More so…insurance?

In observance of the advocacy on financial literacy this Bancassurance Month, BPI-Philam hosted a Praxis game and capped it with a dinner for bloggers.

The intimate game was held at Lugang Cafe, SM Aura, BGC.

Praxis is a unique gameplay which engages players through a
simulation of their financial life. In this exciting game, players will
learn how to manage their finances wisely through insurance, investments and savings. With this smart and dynamic board game, financial planning is effectively made easier to understand then apply in real life.

BMC Head Monique Castro welcomed us guests with
a “Good morning!” the BPI-Philam way. Their greeting in the insurance business is similar to the BPO industry where we greet everyone “Good morning!” all day and night long.

Lois Celorico, BPI-Philam’s Head of Personal Segment
and the event’s game master briefed us players on the mechanics of Praxis, the board game. Compared to real life, Praxis holds many surprises that could catch unprepared players off guard or boost their chances of success. The object of the game is for the player with the highest accumulated money wins in the end.

James Humarang was the overall winner. His winning tactics were investing in health, personal development and stocks. I admired his guts and risks taken that’s why his total amount payout was estimatedly P103,000! Congrats!
You would think at first the game looked complicated with all the props and decks of cards. It was a game of dice and each of us took turns and applied whatever the square indicated. We cheered and shouted and complimented on each other as we mustered on the game.

Our game facilitator Ms. Summer was very patient with us and displayed mastery of the game. She would give us advise on how to manage our insurance and finances. Thank You!!!

In my team, it was fellow blogger JR, who got the highest amount which she was able to obtain thru investments when the situation on the Praxis board called for it.

My Teamates – Anthony, Ronj, Drew and JR
Game Facilitator – Ms. Summer

We were taught the value of insurance and thinking and saving up for our personal or family’s current and future financial situation. Health was also an important factor to be taken consideration of.

Many thanks Arnel for the invite ☺

HOBE Noodles Very Happy With Endorser Ms. Ai Ai

Celebrity comedianne, actress, host, brand ambassador and philanthropist Ms Ai Ai de las Alas recently met with us bloggers to let us know that she has renewed her existing contract with Hobe Bihon and Noodles group under Marikina Foods. 
“Yes it’s my third year na with HOBE. And I am happy at thankful kasi isa itong blessing from God. Lagi ko silang pinagpi-pray. Actually lahat ng mga endorsements ko. Kasi di ba, iyan ang gusto nii Lord, bukod sa humihinngi ng blessings, dapat talaga matuto tayong magpasalamat sa lahat-lahat!”

Earlier while waiting for Ms. Ai, we were able to Q&A with the owner Mr. Bobby Co. I personally asked him what are exciting line ups/activities in store now that she is with them again this year.

“We had a significant growth in sales, thanks to Ai Ai.” shares Mr. Co. “That’s why we got her again because she is an effective endorser. We will have a palengke tour again. Our products are very popular in the provinces as well.”


In my personal home cooking needs, I also use Hobe products because I find the texture of their noodles to be firm. All thanks to the cornstarch ingredient. I

Hobe’s line of noodles selection already has the Hobe Express Instant Pancit Bihon variants that come in Seafood, Chicken and Oriental Guisado flavors. This is for those who prefer eating the very classic thin bihon noodles instead of the common pancit canton other favorite.
