Basta Mackerel dapat tatak UniPak

Hindi basta nakasanayan the best na yan
Kaya basta Mackerel dapat tatak Unipak

Thank you UniPak for sending this package to us and for giving the chance to taste your outstanding product.

I am a Mackerel, Sardines and Tuna lover as well as different fish dishes. There is one brand of Mackerel I always buy before, I will not mention anymore the brand and I didn't know about UniPak. I saw the difference between the two, one advantage of UniPak is easy - open can. It's very convenient in canned goods with this kind of features with easy access for anyone.

Easy-open ends  - represent a revolutionary new standard in convenience packaging, an increasingly important attribute for today's consumers. Offering significantly improved finger access under the tab, these ends make it easier and quicker for consumers to open food cans. Now even consumers with limited mobility, such as seniors, children and the physically impaired, are able to open food packaging without using a can opener or other tools.
                                                                                                               Credits to Crown's Easylift®

Another thing noticeable is about the taste of the mackerel which is not so salty compared to the other brands I am buying before in the market.

UniPak Mackerel is very easy to prepare and cook. Most of the times if we are in a hurry, we just open it and directly put in a bowl and we enjoy our lunch or dinner.

There are lots of recipes you can make out of this product and even create your own recipe.
One time we just saute it on Onions and Garlic then that's it. Serve and Enjoy the meal.

Another recipe my wife cooked is sauteed in garlic, onions, tomatoes and she adds sotanghon on it.
The result is Saute Mackerel ala Sotanghon.

I received also a  calendar with different recipes at the back which you can do at home.


Mackerel is one of the very few natural sources containing good amounts of Vitamin D that is known to increase the survival rate of bowel cancer patients.

UNI-PAK Mackerel is a brand owned by the SLORD DEVELOPMENT CORPORATION, a manufacturer of canned goods that has been in the business of import, export, retail, distribution, and manufacturing since April 15, 1985. UNI-PAK Mackerel products adhere to strict quality control standards, and are manufactured using only the freshest ingredients and up-to-date processing and packing facilities.

Now that I taste this product, I'm considering changing my brand.
Pak-adaling buksan!
Pak-adaling ulamin!
Pak! na Pak! talaga! kaya Pak-yawin nyo na sa mga suking tindahan nyo!

Sunlife #Live Brighter Session with Jonathan Yabut and JP Cruz

Jonathan Yabut the first winner of the hit reality show "Apprentice Asia" shares his "GRIT" for becoming successful

The first ever winner of the hit reality show "Apprentice Asia/' Jonathan Yabut, graced Sun Life
Financial's "Live Brighter Session," a gathering for bloggers and aspiring financial advisors, to share the story of how he rose from humble beginnings to become a successful businessman and an in-demand motivational speaker.

Yabut, who served as Chief of Staff for AirAsia for a year after winning in the reality show hosted by Malaysian business mogul Tony Fernandes, now runs his very own JY Consultancy & Ventures, which operates in Manila, Kuala Lumpur, and Singapore. Addressing the bloggers and aspiring advisors, he talked about the work principles that has brought him to where he is now, and also emphasized the importance of serving a social purpose. According to Yabut, the latter is what will keep one inspired to keep improving his work.

Apart from Yabut, Sun Life Financial advisor JP Cruz also spoke, giving the bloggers an inside look at his own career, as well as his personal journey. He spoke about how he reached rock bottom in both his finances and his love life, and what he did to overcome the struggle. Now a successful Sun Life advisor, Cruz interestingly stressed a thought akin to what Yabut emphasized: that is to have a deeper reason for the work one pursues. In his case, Cruz finds it by helping people achieve lifetime financial security.

"There's so much inspiration to be had in this Live Brighter Session, between Jonathan's and JP's stories. I'm sure that the bloggers who joined us in the venue and even those who tuned in via Facebook Live found motivation to continue pursuing their dreams and finding a purpose to serve," Sun Life Financial Advisor Recruitment Manager Fin Bernardo said. "We hope that this also opens to them opportunities that they can enjoy if they become a financial advisor. It's a career that's definitely meaningful, and at the same time financially rewarding."

This session of SunLife supposedly for millennials only yet we are fortunate to be invited again by Mr. Arnel Bautista- one of the financial adviser assigned to the bloggers.

Question is Why for Millennials only? 

Well, millennials now are talking of the century because of their huge number in our population and its increasingly every year. Millennials describes to be "more civically and politically disengaged, more focused on materialistic values, and less concerned about helping the larger community.

Some of the youth today, have no clear goals about their future. The common term with this is "happy go lucky".

This #Live Brighter Session will really helps the youth to plan for their better future. I learn a lot of new things with this two speaker and I hope they continuously share their success to all people.

The word of Mr. Jonathan Yabut was truly inspiring and powerful. "Goose bumps" I feel at the time of listening to his story. He is very determined to achieve his goals. I'm sure lots of attendees have gained valuable information. Now, it will depend on how they will apply to their own.

Making a difference in the lives of Filipino families is a thrust that’s heavily anchored in Sun Life’s mission. This mission is carried out by the bloodlines of the company: the Financial Advisors.
Sun Life Financial is not only about insuring lives. A financial advisor’s job does not get done when a client purchases a policy or invests in the company. A financial advisor serves as the light that guides one in carrying out and making wise financial decisions.
If you’re passionate in helping people achieve financial freedom, in steering the direction of your own success and in maximizing your potential and getting rewarded for it, too, find out how to become a Sun Life Financial Advisor.

Ayala Foundation launches interactive art installation celebrating Moro Art

Two acclaimed Filipino artists came together to celebrate Moro culture through Manāra, an interactive art installation at the Ayala Museum Plaza, which officially opened on May 3.

Manāra—the Arabic word for “minaret”—is the result of the creative collaboration be-tween internationally acclaimed sculptor and painter Toym Imao and industrial design-er and installation artist Lilianna Manahan.

Featuring 23 minarets and lanterns, the Manāra interactive art installation features Mo-ro textiles, wood and metal work, music, and indigenous patterns. Manāra is a project of Ayala Foundation. 

Toym ImaoAn internationally acclaimed painter and sculptor, Toym Imao has shown his works in the Philippines and abroad. His installation Last, Lost, Lust for Four Forgotten Episodes was the inaugural artwork featured in Ayala Museum’s OpenSpace in 2015. Toym received a bachelor’s degree in architecture from the University of the Philippines, and a master of fine arts degree from the Rinehart School of Sculpture at the Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore, Maryland. Toym is of Tausug descent. He currently teaches at the University of the Philippines College of Fine Arts.

Lilianna Manahanis an internationally recognized visual artist specializing in industrial design, interactive art, and installation art. A graduate of the University of the Philippines College of Fine Arts, Lilianna also studied at Central Saint Martins in London, and trained under renowned designers in Europe and the Philippines, including the acclaimed Kenneth Cobonpue. Her artworks and furniture design have been showcased both here and abroad.

At the Manāra launch, with (standing, fifth from left) Fernando Zobel de Ayala, Ayala Foundation co-chairman; Aliah Cimafranca, Ayala Foundation consultant; artist Lilianna Manahan; artist Toym Imao; and Ruel Maranan, Ayala Foundation president

Traditionally, minarets served as lighthouses, providing light to people and vessels that needed to find their way. Minarets, which are also important architectural features of mosques, are also where calls to prayer are made. 

The iconic sarimanok is one of the images adorning the minarets of Manāra

Similarly, the Manāra art installation hopes to shed light on the richness and diversity of Moro culture, and in the process inspire a deeper understanding of Muslim Filipinos. At the same time, the interactive art installation serves as a call for unity—for Filipinos, even though they come from diverse backgrounds, to become more open to dialogue and cooperation.

“In an increasingly digital environment, art continues to be a powerful expression of today’s realities and an important medium to convey messages of enlightenment, ac-tion, and community. We see this interactive exhibit as an opportunity to promote awareness and further educate people about the rich and inspiring culture of Minda-nao communities and the significant role the Moro culture plays in our country’s history and heritage,” Ayala Foundation Co-Chairman Fernando Zobel de Ayala said.

“The spirit of collaboration, mutual respect, and creativity shown in Manāra is the exact same spirit that we live by at Ayala Foundation,” says Ruel Maranan, president of Aya-la Foundation. “Through our various initiatives in education, youth leadership, sus-tainable livelihood, and arts and culture, we make sure that we are aligned with the needs of our stakeholders, and focus on programs that make an impact in the lives of the people we serve, which include our conglomerate, our communities, and the rest of the country.”

For over 50 years, Ayala Foundation has been implementing community development initiatives in Mindanao. One of the foundation’s first projects was the Sumilao Cattle Research Project at Xavier University in Cagayan de Oro in the 1960s. At present, the foundation has been nurturing its partnership with the Autonomous Region of Muslim Mindanao for its youth leadership program Leadership Communities, and its education program Training Institute. 

Ayala Foundation has also partnered with the City Government of Marawi for the com-munity-based Siyapen Drug Rehabilitation Center, which was started earlier this year.

As the social development arm of the Ayala group, Ayala Foundation envisions communities where people are productive, creative, self-reliant, and proud to be Filipino. 
Founded in 1961 as Filipinas Foundation, the foundation’s first program was, in fact, implemented in Mindanao: the Sumilao Cattle Research Project, which sought to upgrade the quality of livestock in Bukidnon.

In the 1970s the foundation also undertook several studies on Muslim Mindanao, looking at migration patterns, culture, public policy, and economic opportunities. Projects in Mindanao continued in the 1980s and 1990s, until Filipinas Foundation was renamed Ayala Foundation in 1990, signaling the Ayala group’s renewed commitment to improving lives and contributing to national development.

Ayala Foundation’s operations in Mindanao are based in Cagayan de Oro City.  
At present, Ayala Foundation’s initiatives in Mindanao focus on two program areas—youth leadership and education, the bulk of which are done in partnership with the Autonomous Region of Muslim Mindanao. 

• Leadership Communities, a program which strengthens the leadership potential of community-based youth as they identify urgent challenges faced by their own communities, and to conceptualize and implement projects to address these challenges. LeadCom has reached the youth in Cagayan de Oro, Davao City, and Kauswagan, Lanao del Norte. 

• Basilan Young Leaders Program-LeadCom, where 28 young Muslim leaders underwent an immersion and exposure programs, enabling them to appreciate best practices in health, education, livelihood, peace and synergy in key cities around the country. This was done in partnership with RG Mujiv Hataman and the ARMM and the Eisenhower Fellows Association of the Philippines (EFAP). These 28 young leaders either partnered with each other or put up their own groups to implement projects. These resulted in 10 youth projects that had 628 direct beneficiaries benefited through the efforts of youth leaders; 167 youth volunteers all over Basilan were involved in the implementation of the projects

• Bangsamoro Young Leaders Program-LeadCom was initiated to build on the success of the Basilan Young Leaders Program, this time reaching out to the entire ARMM. Ongoing is the project conceptualization phase, where 35 Bangsamoro youth are participating.

• Training Institute is a teacher training program focusing on four major elements, namely classroom pedagogy, development of critical thinking skills, values clarification and use of technology in the classroom. Ongoing are two-year training sessions in both Lamitan and Lantawan in Basilan where 41 teachers and school heads learn new techniques in improving the classroom experience. In Cagayan de Oro, AFI has trained 64 teachers, most of whom will also become trainers for TI initiatives in other parts of Mindanao.

• Global Filipino Schools, a partnership program between Ayala Foundation, Globe Telecom, Mitsubishi, and the City Government of Cagayan de Oro, provides internet connectivity and teacher training in the use of technology in the classroom. GFS reached 2,710 pupils and 62 teachers from Fr. Masterson Elementary School and Indahag Elementary School, both in Cagayan de Oro. 

• The Siyapen Drug Rehabilitation Center is a partnership project with the City Government of Marawi, and hopes to provide a community-based approach to drug rehabilitation. It will be opened in 2017.

Guests are welcome to explore and interact with Manāra at the Ayala Museum Plaza from May 3 to May 30. The installation will then be brought to key sites in Visayas and Mindanao later this year.
